Wednesday Post: If every word in my post was replaced letter by letter...

Happy Birthday to Madhuri Dixit!

Koimoi has 10 things to love about Madhuri:

My painting teacher once told me the story of world famous painter M.F Hussain’s eloquent love for Madhuri. Labelling her as his muse, she personified the epitome of womanhood for this celebrated painter. Hussain went on to cast Madhuri in one of his films, based on the painting that drew inspiration from the persona of the actress. It is rumored that the painter had watched Madhuri’s 1994 blockbuster 67 times and when she returned to acting in 2007, he booked an entire hall to watch Aaja Nachle all by himself!

Mid-Day has a couple more images up of her item with Ranbir. YOU JUST KNEW WHAT WOULD MAKE ME GO TO THIS STUPID FILM, DIDN'T YOU, DHARMA! Well, who knows. Maybe the trailers are deceiving and it's not yet another film about a boy who doesn't know what (Hollywood-style rom-com) love is and has it taught to him by a girl whose only purpose in live (apparently) is to provide (Hollywood-style rom-com) love tutions.

IIfA is going back to Macau.

Meanwhile, over in British Columbia, home of the (First Annual) Times of India Film Awards, Christy Clark, she of the Ethnicgate scandal, loses her seat but remains premier. How does that work? Canada is weird.

----

The Punjab government is scolded for not taking action against Honey Singh.

----

Shahrukh and AR Murugadoss? I feel like I've heard this before.

And hot uncle explosion when Suniel Shetty, Ajay Devgn, and Prabhudeva team up. I want to live there.

----

Rishi Kapoor's look in D-Day is revealed and DAMN! CHINTU IS A BADASS, YO!

The seasoned actor plays a fictional character codenamed Goldman by the Indian security establishment. A fugitive in hiding, Goldman is a sinister, diabolical and chilling individual, who cloaks himself in a veneer of outward charm and respectability.

Yup. Looking forward to this one.

----

Saquib Saleem as a kids skating coach seems like the cutest film idea ever.

----

Ranveer x Bebo has to happen, so smart thinking, Bebo, for declining the role of Ranveer's sister. There is no way to jump from sister to heroine of the same hero. Ew.

----

GRATUITOUS PARINEETI AND VARUN!

Trailer for the PRESENTED BY KIRAN RAO Ship of Thesus, which looks interesting... in an artsy sci-fi kind of way.

I'm sure his performance will be badass, because Rishi, but Rishi in that getup to me just looks like kind of a dorky/sleazy middle-aged dude. (Which admittedly makes him a much more authentic-looking Dawood Ibrahim analogue than, uh, the other two fictionalized Dawoods we're getting this year.)

I wonder what measures Prabhudeva is taking to make sure his cameras on that project don't spontaneously combust from all the testosterone. And how he plans to compensate for the fact that Ajay has the dancing skills of a depressed tortoise.

Excellent points on all counts... although to be fair, I would say between them Ajay AND Suniel have the dancing skills of a depressed tortoise. Singular. ;)

Nah, I think Kareena & Ranveer will make a horrible pair. She looks much older for one & has more maturity about her, whereas Ranveer has that over enthusiastic boyish charm. Having said that, I'd still kill to see him in a film with Rani, even if it has to be your script ;)

@FGm -- the article you linked explained very clearly how Christy Clark remains Premier. She is the official leader of the party that got a majority of the votes/seats in the legislature, so she will be the premier. But before she can actually take office, she will need to win a seat in the legislature herself, in a by-election in a "safe" Liberal constituency. I.e., a Liberal member who has already been elected in such a safe constituency will resign, thus creating a vacancy, for which a by-election will be held. Clark will contest in that election and win, since that constituency will elect anyone on a Liberal ticket.

If you want a really weird government, you'll need to look to India, where Manmohan Singh, without ever running for a single political office in his life, is nevertheless a two term Prime Minister, and is not out of the running yet for a third term. Or go to the recent elections in Karnataka, where the Congress party contested without ever naming who will become Chief Minister if their party wins, as they did.

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.
