Monday UPDATE!

Good Morning!! Here is a tip from me -> Do not read "Methland" right before going to bed because it will give you awful nightmares.

Anyways, you know what will help wash away the anxiety of "Methland"? Bollywood goss!

* Rekha's nephew claims she "didn't help him" get an acting job. The bitter tone of his quotes indicate that somebody has a bad case of sour grapes.

* This BBC article about the "new India" showcased at the TIFF neglects to mention either Dil Bole Hadippa or What's Your Rashee. Instead, movies starring white people are tagged as represented a "new India."

* More info on the Kangana/Prabhas starrer Ek Niranjan!!!

Says the producer: "It (sets) was erected on eight acres of land. It comprises over 80 streets, clock tower, huge temples and a gambling den".

I cannot wait to see this movie!!!!

* Somebody tried to steal the master print of What's Your Rashee but was caught. All pirates made from the stolen print were destroyed.

* Aw, bless! Aftab Shivdasani thinks he's a "actor" and wants to take on classic Anil Kapoor role Mr. India.

(Keep dreaming big, Aftab, but I'd stick to secondary hero opposite Akshay Kumar - he does good things for you.)

* OMG!!!! SHAHID KAPOOR and Anushka Sharma have been spotted in PHILADELPHIA!!! *dies*

Why do I have stupid work today?!

* India Today breaks down the critical panning of Kylie's "Chiggy Wiggy," which, to be fair, is a sucky song.

Have we all forgotten about LAMKE?!

Rahul Bose hasn't!! Manish Malhotra threw a party and invited the pint-size actor!

He was also unable to keep away Riya Sen...

...Sophie Chaudhary...

...and K.Jo.

Question: If Manish Malhotra throws a party and Urmila doesn't show up looking like a drag queen - has the party really been thrown?

Filmi Girl's Bollywood Boyfriend John Abraham, rocking the formal-goth look!

And a lovely Sushmita Sen in gold!

Urmila looks fab, ahhh i can't believe Chiggy wiggy is getting some hate, i like the song it works as a catchy cute hinglish item number, it stays in your head and works perfectly with the superficiality Blue is set to exude

moviemeh said...

The only nice thing about the article is that the mainstream finally acknowledges that Slumdog Millionaire is pretty much selling "India-as-a-land-of-slums-and-squalor" (their phrase).

moviemeh said...

To clarify: I meant the BBC article about the "new India"

ajnabi said...

Indeed, regeneration, spiritual and otherwise, seems to be the new buzzword driving the Western gaze on India. Isn't that the way Hollywood films have *always* portrayed India, though? As a place you go to when you're stymied in your life, to find new spirituality, purpose, and direction? Whatever, that article's full of crap.

Sush *is* looking lovely!

This BBC article about the "new India" showcased at the TIFF neglects to mention either Dil Bole Hadippa or What's Your Rashee because there is nothing "new" about them.

@bollywooddeewana I'm not a fan of "Chiggy Wiggy" - it starts off good but just fizzles out when Sonu comes in. It's a poor effort from Rahman - Kylie is not at fault.

@moviemeh True - I hadn't thought of that. :)

@ajnabi Sush is looking so beautiful! Gold works for her!

And @anonymous But as ajnabi says, what is so "new" about Westerners going to India to find themselves? It just seems odd that an article about Indian films at TIFF, would neglect to at least mention the Indian films at TIFF in favor of Western films about India.

Shahid & Anushka Sharma are dating? I thought Shahid was seeing PC.
I can kind of live with Urmila's choice of dress, but that makeup is all wrong.

Cindy said...

Seriously, was John Abraham going for "formal goth"? Because I'm not sure what else that look is supposed to be. He looks good, but it's rather curious.

simran said...

I'm sorry to break it to you Filmi Girl but John and I got engaged over the summer! But your crush is extremely cute! ;)

And ever since I found out that Riya Sen dated John, I have hated her lol :P

Thank God the BBC article did not mention DHB or WYR since those are not movies you want to use as an introduction to BW or highlight as the changing BW.

Urmila's makeup is awful, Sushmita's outfit is lovely but she looks so much older than her age (hard living I guess)and John's outfit looks ridiculous like a Project Runway reject.

Sujal said...

Aftab + Akshay? Is it bad if the first thing that comes to mind isn't Awara Paagal Deewana (which was awesome), but instead Deewane Huye Paagal (Aftab with a guest appearance), which was downright awful?

And Aftab has had his moments... I much enjoyed both Hungama & Darwaza Bandh Rakho.

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.

xoxo Filmi Girl
