Saturday Gossip: The! Anti-rich! Edition!

Fans of Bollywood camp might enjoy this Bollywood Halloween mix tape as a soundtrack to the weekend.

And fans of non-camp might enjoy this book out called, "The Adventures of an Intrepid Film Critic." It sounds like a good read!

“To my mind, this book is a celebration of the small film,” Vetticad says sanguinely, while acknowledging that there is little to celebrate about the existence of such films as the rape-joke-laden Be-Careful. Indeed, her book is most engaging when it throws up eye-popping — and sometimes poignant — tidbits about poseurs, no-hopers and people who deserve wider recognition (such as the hearing-impaired Sohail Lakhani, who trained Ranbir Kapoor for Barfi!).

I'll definitely be putting in a order for this!


* Kabir Khan calls Kat the fourth Khan of Bollywood!

"Katrina is one of my closest friends. I`m very fond of her. Some like her and some believe she`s not a good actor. The way she works is unbelievable. I`ve never seen anyone in this industry work so hard. It`s an endearing quality."

* A rundown of the next big five films coming down the pike...

* Oh, Jackky Bhagnani... I'm actually enjoying the publicity for his flop film.

Ajab Gazzab Love is the Hindi remake of the super hit Telugu film Seema Tapakai. The romantic comedy tells the story of Rajveer (Jackky) who is from a rich family and falls in love with Maddy (Nidhi), who is a socialist and, therefore, anti-rich! Rajveer convinces his family to act as if they are poor to convince the girl to marry him. Needless to say this results in hilarious outcomes.

She's anti-rich! He's rich but pretending to be "poor"! She'll give up her values for him! Poor people are so hilarious! Needless to say I love exclamation points at the end of sentences talking about Jackky Bhagnani!

* Another review of Jackky's film which explains who the real stars are:

Jacky Bhagnani as usual plays himself, Nidhi Subbaiah is as limber as frozen kulfi forgotten in a freezer. The pick of the actors are easily [Arshad] Warsi and [Arjun] Rampal.

* Saif Ali Khan teams up with Sajid Khan. Saifu needs a hit... meanwhile, Bebo will be back to work on November 5th shooting an item song for Dabangg 2. (Sonakshi and Malaika are also doing item songs in the film.)

* John Abraham is going all out for Shootout at Wadala. It's been a while since I've seen an encounter film. I'm looking forward to this one...

* A little throw away line at the end of this post of Nikhil Advani talking about Delhi Safari.

Advani's newly-developed heightened socio-political awareness would be reflected in his next film D Day which is about a group of RAW agents bringing a dreaded international terrorist back to India from Pakistan for trial.

Did I not know about this?

And my girl Hard Kaur has a new video out! She knows what the crowd likes... Get that cash, girl! (And then buy me something nice.)

My interest in Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana extends exactly as far as the soundtrack, which is pretty rocking!

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.
