Monday Post: RIP Paul Walker...

Sad news today: a big RIP to Paul Walker, star of the Fast & Furious movies. There aren't too many Hollywood films that I enjoy but the Fast & Furious series remain some of my favorites. Films with big action and big heart. He'll be missed.

But I hope all the Americans out there had a nice Thanksgiving weekend.

And now the countdown to Christmas and Dhoom 3 really begins!


Singapore has bought into Eros Entertainment. So, can we assume they want to upgrade from Pyaar Impossible to something better?


Bullett Raja has not done too well but it wasn't playing at my local theater so I can't say one way or the other. I wonder if it just didn't get overseas distribution? Did anybody see it?


Salman Khan was on Koffee with Karan and trolled everybody on the planet by saying that he was 'still a virgin.'


The best gift anybody could ever give me: articles like this one in which Bollywood Life considers the question. BUT IS HE LYING ABOUT IT?


Shahid Kapoor deserves some luck. Says Shahid Kapoor.

“It does feel that you’ve given so much and notgetting anything back, so it gets tiring after a point. But I thinkthe audience has faith in me as an actor. Things could’ve gone my way easily but they didn’t. It’s that kind of business. It’s a matter of luck,” he says. Luck, as you can see, is a word that was mentioned quite a number of times during the conversation.

And a fun little conversation with Prabhudeva, Shahid, and Sonakshi.

Prabhu Deva: That is why the backdrop for a song is also important. For the Sari Ke Fall track we shot in the salt pans in Gujarat. During a song, the focus should be on the actors, but the backdrop has to look stunning too.

Shahid: He has this knack of taking the ordinary stuff to make it look extraordinary.


The new trend in B-town? Books from Japanese novels. In translation, I'm assuming, which is too bad since most translations are pretty terrible.


Filming should start on Bang Bang soon but really you should click through to admire Kat in a lovely yellow and black outfit.


Bebo and Farhan are going to be 'zestful' in Bombay Samurai.

And independent, serious artist Farhan Akhtar to endorse Coca-Cola and Gillette.

Bebo's film with Ekta and Karan Johar stalled because of Ekta and Karan.


Juhi Chawla joins the Om Puri-Helen Mirren rom-com.


If there's no Amitabh Bachchan, there's no Welcome Back, says Anees Bazmee.

So, everybody let Amit know how much they don't want to see this film.


Govinda is playing a superstar in Happy Ending.


Sunny Deol is directing Ghayal Returns.


PC says she's missing from the teaser of Gunday as a promotional strategy. Look, I CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!


Rekha joins Asha Bhosle's concert in Dubai.

And a round-up of Shahrukh Khan's Dubai concert.


Something in me really just wants Sunny Leone to do well…

Have a song trailer from Jackpot--music by Jaaved Jaaferi. Eggjactly.

I think the best gift you could get is to actually watch this episode of KoffeeWithSalman, or, as someone proposed calling it, Chai with Bhai.

All the time I was watching it, I kept regretting that it should have come during the long weekend, when you were not on Bollywood duty, so to speak. :)

Re: Welcome Back: wait, I thought Naseeruddin and Dimple had been cast in the Amit-Rekha roles?

I need to sit down and watch Chai with Bhai, if only for the fun of Kjo getting put in his place and to find out whether Salim is as big a jerk as I've always thought him to be.

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
