Wednesday Gossip!

GOOD MORNING! Two very fun videos today and... some other stuff! Under the cut!

Should I give a hint? Go! Go! Go! GOVINDA!

* Kalpana has been released from customs.

* Hema Malini is going to Norway for a Bollywood festival there!

* Mumtaz is everywhere this news cycle.

But to see you play an aged woman of grownup children would be unacceptable?

That’s one of the reasons why my comeback film Aandhiyaan failed. People wanted to know why I was playing mother to an 18-year old. I was a trendy mom in jeans. I dressed in the film how the heroine dressed in the original Pakistani film. Director David Dhawan wanted me to dress and behave exactly the way it was in the original. It didn’t go down well with the audience.

* Vanity Fair decides Sheryln Chopra is Bollywood's Joanna Krupa.

Over on Chopra’s Wikipedia page, various Internet users introduce her as a one-time awards-show presenter with a subsection of her professional résumé devoted to “nude modelling.” So maybe Chopra is the Joanna Krupa of Indian personalities, and if so, she may have a season of Dancing with the Stars, a CSI: Crime Scene Investigation cameo, and/or a controversial PETA ad in her near future.

* Shahrukh pushes forward shooting of Chennai Express.

* Meanwhile, his Red Chilies is providing special effects for Krrish 3. I'm already laughing at the idea of trying to describe where "Krrish 2" is to non-Bollywood followers.

* Sasha signs up with Rajkumar Santoshi! I hope we have another daffy Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani on our hands - you don't want to know how many times I've rewatched that movie. What a pile of fun!! Remember the chicken song? Koo koo-koo! And the fight at the bubble factory?! THIS MOVIE HAD BETTER HAVE A BUBBLE FACTORY IN IT!

* A little more info on Sanju's Saamy remake... did they ever get a heroine for this?

"A source" also has Sanju-baba stepping in for Sunny Deol in Fateh Singh... with Vivek Oberoi?

"Santoshi has now signed on Dutt. Dutt’s close friend Vivek will also play a role in the film."

So, we can assume the source is Vivek?

* Kajal Agarwal turns down Govinda.

* The last line of this piece on boxer Amir Khan is priceless.

His eye injury was caused from shards of glass when a fight broke out between rapper Drake and R&B singer Chris Brown over singing sensation Rihanna in a New York bar where he was having a quiet drink.

Right... just enjoying a "quiet drink" with Drake and Chris Brown, like one does.

Yes, please sign me up for whatever is happening in the trailer for Vikram's Thandavam. My fave part is near the end where we see Vikram at the piano and he just turns around like, "Yes? You were going to say something about my sweet song stylings?"

GO GO GO GOVINDA! EEEEE! Sonakshi's tomboy act is too cute! Can Prabhudeva just be in charge of everything in Bollywood from now on?

If the definition is stretched loose enough, I might count as some sort of Bollywood follower and *I* would still like to know where Krrriissshhh2 is. Did it disappear at the hands of some coy mill guy?

Sonakshi is adorable! And willing to be silly! <3

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
