Monday Gossip!

Good morning, everybody!

I hope you all had a nice Christmas.

Now, let's see what was happening this weekend...

* Salman Khan is
45! Happy birthday!

* Everybody is
getting sued.

* Javed Akhtar is
banned by the Film Federation of India.

* Totally bereft of original ideas, Karan Johar wants to make a sequel to

* Will it be Asin opposite SRK in
Two States?

You know, I'm pretty forgiving of 20 year age gaps and 40 year old virgin heros when it comes to
masala films which are big fantasies anyway but if this is supposed to be "realistic" like Love Aaj Kal or 3 Idiots, I'm going to have to skip it. Nobody in those "realistic" films ever wonders why some 45 year old man is courting a girl young enough to be his daughter.

* Rani and Vidya
talk about their liplock!

“The mock kiss was our humourous take on the so-called animosity between Vidya and me. Guys have done it before as a fun stunt, so we decided to spice things up.”

Rani can lay a mock liplock on me anytime... I'm so excited for
No One Killed Jessica.

Another mag has the two
talk about each other.

What in your opinion is the best scene in No One Killed Jessica?

Rani: There is this scene in the film where she breaks down on the terrace. I think Vidya performed it brilliantly.

Vidya: I like the scene (it’s also there in the promos), where Rani is jumping at the bonnet of a car and screams that justice has been denied. It was quite an intense scene.

* Amitabh Bachchan
hates the media.

Tell us something we don't know...

* Shruti Hasan is going to return to Bollywood opposite
Abhishek Bachchan... under the ABCL banner, natch.

* Sonam Kapoor says she doesn't want to go to Hollywood until she builds a
solid resume in Bollywood. *cough cough no comment*

* Sonam may also luck out and have Daddy secure Madhuri Dixit for a
Freaky Friday remake.

* Anil and Anupam have
buried the hatchet.

* At the same party, Salman gives a fan a
tight slap for kissing him!

Here is an interesting piece on a Brazilian telenovela called Road to India.

* China wasn't too impressed with
My Name Is Khan.

My Name Is Khan does not look like any Indian movie that Bai Lu, 26, a software professional, has watched before. She likes the special features of Indian movies, otherwise Hollywood provides her with better options than this "second rate copy of Forrest Gump."

TMK gets a big opening! Third biggest after 3 Idiots and Dabangg and Joginder Tuteja reflects on the silliness of the obsession with a big opening.

Three decades back it was the silver jubilee v/s golden jubilee run of a film that decided its fate

Two decades back it was the 100 days run that came with its own prestige

A decade back it was the collections more than the days or weeks that were looked at closely

Five years back it was the first week that decided if the film was a hit or flop

A year back it came down to the weekend collections

Today, with the arrival of
Tees Maar Khan, it is the First Day number which appears to be an all important decision point for the industry

What would be the deciding factor tomorrow? The first show?

* Speaking of, SRK is enjoying the critical drubbing Farah Khan is getting and has (allegedly)
thrown a party celebrating the bad reviews.

Agreed on the smooch from Rani. Vidya too, for that matter. :)

Wow, a lot of things going on, as usual :)

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
