Saturday Gossippp!

Ah... a rainy, almost spring morning here in Washington, DC! Just one more day until Atif Aslam and Shreya Ghoshal!

* Trisha's latest release
Dopidi is coming out later this month.

* Jackie Fernandez is doing a Pepsi commercial with

It's a Wonderful Afterlife is getting two UK premieres, which is cool. But shame on Glamsham for describing the plot as "the film is a humorous account of a Punjabi mother's desperate measures to get her fat daughter married to a tall, dark and handsome hunk!"

Okay, Goldy Notay is not fat and even if she was - there are so many better ways to describe the plot that don't involve making Goldy sound like a hideous freak and fat people unworthy of love.

* The proud tradition of
lesbian sexploitation is coming to Bollywood in The Apartment! Get your tickets now, folks.

The Times of India goes behind the scenes of some classic moments!

Mr India
"Mogambo khush hua!"

For years after the film, it was common to quip, “Mogambo khush hua!” Shekhar Kapur’s sci-fi superhero classic Mr India (1987), immortalised the late Amrish Puri in his larger-than-life role, with this oft-repeated dialogue in the film, co-starring Sridevi and Anil Kapoor. Mogambo sat on his throne on a high-tech island, monitoring the activities of his henchmen. Says producer Boney Kapoor, “Shekhar was clear that he wanted a comic book feel to the film and the character. ‘Mogambo’ was characterised after about 65 per cent of the film had been shot. We considered Anupam Kher, but decided on Amrish Puri, who was already a known villain. About 10 of us, including Shekhar, Sridevi, Shabana, Javed (Akhtar, the scriptwriter) flew to meet him in Ooty, where he was shooting. Mogambo’s throne, the outlandish costumes with embroidered skulls, all added to his persona. And the consummate actor that he was, Amrish Puri never said the line the same way once.”

* Uday Chopra is 'depressed' after the massive flop of
Pyaar Impossible.

* Prabu Deva admits he was
immature as an actor.

* Amitabh Bachchan is getting honored at the
Hong Kong Film Festival.

* Bips's
Pankh is coming out April 2nd!

* Read about
Lahore Fashion Week!

This is the unseen Pakistan. This is the Pakistan to break every Pakistan cliché. I am here to see the city of the restless night and in Lahore, Noor Rahman, with her kohl and cocky comeback, educationist and sushi and meethi pan connoisseur, opens doors to parties that last till 10.00 a.m., and says she wants to come to Delhi.

* The divine Rani Mukerji feeds her fans homemade

* Bipasha Basu thinks Bollywood doesn't write enough parts for

"The Hindi film industry is male-centric and female actors, though tremendously talented, get less opportunity than their male counterparts. If we don’t have separate categories, only the men will win."

* And part two of the
Wall Street Journal series.

In recent times, one of the best films about the film business was Zoya Akhtar’s Luck By Chance, released in 2009. It tells the story of Vikram Jaisingh, an aspiring actor, and his efforts to make it in Bollywood amidst cut-throat competition. Vikram believes that success and failure are simply choices people make.


Shahrukh Khan looking fantastic!

Arjun and his gorgeous wife!

HBICs in the house!!!

I loved that "hota hai hota hai" bit in one of the articles you linked to :D

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.
