Salman & Katrina again a pair!

The excitement has set in when this news spread in the circles… The ex-lovebirds will soon be back together – ah ha but for professional commitment of course!

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will share the screen for ‘New York’ famed helmer Kabir Khan’s next venture. Some time back the speculations were rife that these two are being considered for the project, Sallu bhai had some reservations then about the casting. However things said to have been smoothened and the ground work is going to start.

On the other hand some sources claim that there is no animosity between Salman and Kat and they are still very good friends.

Incidentally, it is said that initially talks were going about Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra being considered for the female lead. However Katrina seemed to be better suited for the role. Besides, having worked with Kabir Khan, she is Kabir’s favourite and also they share a very good equation.

Hmmmm, looks like finally the wait is over to see Kat and Salman together. While they looked adorable in the special track of ‘Tees Maar Khan’, it will be wonderful to see their chemistry in Kabir’s movie…

Let’s wait for this one… What say?

Salman will forgive Anees Bazmee?

Salman has put a ‘no entry’ board for Anees Bazmee the director of his forthcoming ‘Ready’. Just when everything was going right, suddenly something happened which made the emotional Salman upset with his director Anees and now we hear that Anees has left the shoot of ‘Ready’ and is busy with the post production work of ‘Thank You’.

Anees however denies any rift and says, “We had a meeting about my departure and everything was planned before I left.” He further adds, “I never do two films at the same time. This time, the dates clashed and led to the confusion. I am extremely proud of my work in Ready.”

But there’s a twist in the tale. If Anees is proud of his work then why is his hero upset…
A close hand reveals that Salman and Anees had a big fight on the sets in Bangkok. The reason being Rajat Rawail, who is the co-producer of ‘Ready’ and Anees’s close associate.

Salman who starred in Anees’s first hit ‘No Entry’ was miffed when Anees took Rajat’s side, this triggered a fight which resulted in Anees leaving the set and coming to Mumbai.

Salman who has a heart bigger than his biceps is also known for keeping grudges for along. There are now worries regarding ‘Ready’, as the movie is far from over.

Now it’s learnt that Rajat had shifted sides and made up with Salman and choreographer Raju Khan is calling the shots on location.

However producer Bhushan Kumar confirms Anees not returning to Bangkok but maintains that there’s no problem and the remaining portion will be shot in Mumbai in four days, he said, “Why should Bazmee go back? Ek gaana hi toh shoot karna hai. Raju Khan is calling the shots.

He further adds, “I am sure Anees will shoot the scenes that remain. We shall shoot those in Mumbai later, over a period of four days.”

All fine sir… But what about the mood of Dabangg Khan Salman Khan…?

So guys, ‘Ready’ will get’  Ready’ for all of us if Salman is ‘Ready’ to forgive….

So pls post your comments and make a humble request to our dear Salman to forgive Anees and make us ‘Ready’ for a wholesome entertainment once again…

Shahrukh defeats Salman

Bollywood Badshah Shahrukh Khan has defeated Salman and averted the glamour town’s muscle man hat trick. King Khan has convincingly defeated his arch rival Salman and yet again proved his supremacy in Bollywood by bagging the best actor award for ‘My Name Is Khan’ at an electrifying ceremony last night at the 56 Idea Filmfare Awards held at Yash Raj Studios.

When Bollywood eternal diva Rekha announced the winner announced the name of Shahrukh for the best actor, there was a thunderous applause, and amidst the never ending cheers, the elated once again crowned No.1 of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan humbly shared, “I want to take this award for my daughter. I wanted to make her wear a red gown and walk in with me on the red carpet. But she’s unwell”.

We said earlier before the awards that it will be tough for the Bollywood muscle man Salman to win over the King of Romance Shahrukh in his favourite territory the FilmFare.

Sallu has to wait for another year as Shahrukh has taken his filmfare tally of best actor for the eight times with this.

Salman, Govinda starrer ‘Partner 2’ – will it happen?

Pssssssssst… The much talked about second innings of the highly entertaining ‘Partner’ starring close real-life buddies Salman and Govinda may not happen…!

The David Dhawan helmed money spinner which gave a second lease of life to once Bollywood entertainer No.1 was tipped to come with another more humorous issue but it went on getting delayed and now people are asking whether it is happening or not…..

The common reasons which we read in media by the people associated with the film is that they are working on a proper script and Salman’s dates, but a close hand reveals that there’s something more personal and emotional to this delay…

Is it really that they are looking for the right script or there’s another story…

Read on….

Nowadays, we don’t see god old pals Salman and Govinda together and even after the super success of ‘Dabangg’ Govinda was not seen or heard much…. The reason is Narmmadaa Ahuja – Govinda’s daughter.

It is said that Govinda expected Salman to give a break to his daughter Narmmadaa in ‘Dabangg’ but the role went to B-town veteran villain-cum-actor Shatrughan Sinha urf Shotgun’s daughter Sonakshi Sinha who immediately became the apple of the tinsel town and the public as well.

Casting of Sonali bowed the seed of difference between Salman and Govinda and as a result the sequel ‘Partner2’ has got affected.

It is also rumoured that Salman was not happy with this delay and he even expressed his feelings to David but of no use. They have patched up but after some narazgis.

So folks don’t go by the words waiting for the right script, it might be something else…

We all wanna ‘Partner’, but we will have to wait till everyone say ‘yeah’.

No change in surname: Kiran Rao

Unlike other star wives, Kiran Rao – the better half of superstar Aamir Khan – uses her maiden surname and says that the thought of changing her surname to Khan never occurred to her or to Aamir.

‘I’ve grown with my name and have had it for so many years. I have always wondered how people change their names. I’m quite comfortable with Rao and even Aamir is, he never asked me to change my surname,’ said Kiran.

‘I don’t mind calling myself Mrs. Khan but its definitely nicer to be called what I have been referred to for all these years,’ she added.

Kiran, who was at an event to launch a new promo of her forthcoming directorial debut Dhobi Ghat, also revealed that she is a fan of Salman Khan and initially had wanted a special appearance by the actor in her film.

‘In the film, Prateik’s character is someone who wants to be an actor and is a huge fan of Salman Khan, so initially when I was writing the film, I had thought I’ll ask Salman to make a guest appearance but then that part didn’t fit in the film at all, so we dropped it.

‘I myself like Salman a lot and this is my tribute to him. Since we have shown that Prateik’s character has his (Salman’s) posters in his room and wears a bracelet which is quite similar to the one Slaman wears in real life,’ she said.

Dhobi Ghat, slated for a Dec 21 release, also stars Aamir and is the story of four individuals and how their lives are intertwined with each other
