Two quick announcements - 1) I'll be out of town next weekend visiting my sister in Northampton so no updates and 2) I had a nice interview with one of the white actors from Vishwaroopam for Outsider in Bollywood and will hopefully have that up soon. He had nothing but the highest praise for Kamal Haasan.
Quick news day today.
* Kamal Haasan's troubles may be at an end. 7 scenes to be cut from Vishwaroopam so it can be released. I wonder which ones... PS Do not read the comments to this article unless you need more excuses to hate humanity.
* Comedian Ashish Shakya puts things in perspective.
Khan’s essay caught the attention of Pakistan’s interior minister, Rehman Malik, who took time off from his busy schedule of denying 26/11 to ask the Indian government to provide SRK with security.
It’s wonderful when two of the world’s most-watched nuclear rivals set aside piddling matters like poverty, corruption and domestic strife to talk about a guy who peddles fairness creams.
* Luke Kenny (who?) complained that he was always getting typecast as the foreign friend post-Rock On. But doesn't that necessitate getting "cast"? I don't remember Luke Kenny being any kind of mega-talent, which unless you're Aamir Khan's nephew or sleeping with some producer, basically puts you in Hero's Best Friend territory.
