Tuesday Post: Brrrrr... I mean Brrrr...tles.


Good mornings! We've hit a bit of a cold spell here... it's been FREEZING COLD! IN MAY! As a great man once said: *brrrrrrrrr*

Speaking of *brrrrrrrr* - Americans! Go have some Penn Jillette ice cream, which is delicious and only available this week. I think I've mentioned before that I'm a huge Penn & Teller fan. Actually, I'm mostly a Teller fan, BUT I like Penn, too. His podcast is always worth listening to for old show biz stories and his theories on entertaining, which are wonderful. Penn always surprises. Plus he's from my home state of Massachusetts!

Anyways. Americans. Penn ice cream. It's delicious. I'm not getting paid for this. Listen to his podcast.

While I'm sympathetic to the idea of an adult movie actress acting in mainstream films, maybe the reason she isn't be cast in more films isn't because Bollywood actors all have nagging, killjoy wives but because she's just not that good? It's just a thought.

Kat is going to help style herself for Dhoom 3 and Bang Bang.

EWWWW! This sounds like the worst idea of all time. Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Paresh Rawal playing three dirty old men lusting after Nargis Fakhri. Get your money ready... to buy a ticket to something else.

Well, I suppose Uday had to give Nargis something after all those dates - at least I'm assuming this is a Yash Raj flick - and that "something" is a film directed by Rumi Jaffrey who brought us such delights as God Tussi Great Ho and Life Partner and was one of the writers on Chattur Singh No Stars. (Thank you, IMDB.)

I'll give Rumi-sir the final word:

Jaffery says it was essential to get the right cast. “Otherwise the comedy of three old men running after a very hot young girl would fall flat.”

Um... can we please stick in a fork her Nargis's acting career already?

Serious Actor Ayushmann Khurrana from Super Hit SUPER Serious Film Vicky Donor For Which He Won An Award (tm Ayushmann Khurrana) set to host the Bachelorette India? Please let this be true.

Hindie smackdown. Onir vs. Tigmanshu Dhulia. Two men enter. Two men want to remake Hamlet.

Dhulia's Hamletian plans won't deter Onir. Says Onir, "I see no reason to change my plans. But I'd be very disappointed if Tigmanshu goes ahead with his own version of Hamlet. Anyone has the right to make Hamlet. I don't own the copyright to Shakespeare. But if I know another filmmaker is doing the same subject, the least I'd do is make a call."

Tigmanshu is another of those boring directors who makes films for the television screen. Him and Milan Luthria, yet they're felicitated all over town. I'd rather see Onir's Hamlet.

I just liked the picture that went with this... a super Madhuri Dixit's fan is encouraging people to save water.

A small chaat shop owner, Pappu Sardar, who starts his day with worshipping the portrait of Madhuri, has launched the campaign by putting up banners in the city including one before his shop at Sakchi and another in front of 'Cheshire Home', a home for differently abled women, at Sundernagar.

How sweet! All the best, Pappu Sardar!

Some Tuesday morning ghoulishness with former stars who have dropped into poverty.

AK Hangal: Hangal had been active in films since 1967 and played on-screen father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle to many top notch Bollywood actors but at the 95 years, Avtar Kishan Hangal, aka A K Hangal among old age ailments also battled acute poverty. When he passed away his home Saraswati Mansion in Santacruz (East), where he lived with his 74-year-old son, Vijay, was dilapidated and needed immediate renovation. But neither Hangal, who was bed ridden, or his son, who suffers from a unbearable back trouble were in any position to do that as every day was a fight for them to pay for medicines.

----

And now that you're depressed, lighten back up a little with stories of Bobby Deol being treated like a pampered child.

However, Sunny was bit upset and told us how we are spoiling his young brother who is already spoilt by entire family. But the truth is, it is Sunny who loves indulging the younger brother and is sometimes overheard asking him if he’s eaten properly.”

----

Disappointing to see that PC has yet to be shamed out of taking on a role that should have gone to an ethnic minority and is continuing in her boxing preparations like it's perfectly fine they're going to spend tons of cash to digitally alter her eyes instead of just casting an actress from Manipur.

Doesn't that sound like the WORST film ever?! DIRECTED BY THE GUY WHO WROTE CHATTUR SINGH NO STARS!

Let's be fair: the really horrifying thing about Shaukeen is that some Bengali intellectual type who should have known better thought it was a good idea to direct the original version of this idea back in the 80s, with the likes of AK Hangal and Uttam Dutt, who also should have known better.

I mean, we all expect the likes of Rumi Jeffery, Paresh, Anupam, Akki, Nargis Fakhri, to have all the good taste and aesthetic sense of a bunch of three-toed tree sloths, right? What excuse do the people from the original version have?

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.
