Aamir Khan Injured in Ghajini

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan got injured when a tough stunt for the upcoming film Ghajini.

According to an onlooker on the set, Aamir was required to pull up a very fat goon and smash him against the wall. During this bulky incident Aamir ruptured his hamstring muscle and the injury was so worse that Aamir was not able to stand due to the pain.

Immediately after that Aamir has been hospitalized. His wife Kiran Rao immediately flew down to Hyderabad to be beside her hubby in pain.

The shooting has been stopped and will again resume only after the actor become hale and hearty again.

Kajol will gladly grab the comedy role from Mira Nair

Kajol is getting over choosy about her role, especially due to the uncertainty/delay regarding her signing Karan Johar’s directional venture with Shahrukh Khan and also Raju Hirani’s Aamir Khan Project. Her recent project with husband Ajay Devgan’s ‘U Me Aur Hum’ may not have been a commercial success, yet, as mostly, Kajol has uniformly walked away with the accolades.

She honestly admits that she is too picky as an actress. But in the same breath adds that if Mira Nair offers her a comedy, she would gladly grab it without a second thought.

Latest trailor of the movie 'Bhootnath'

Watch the latest trailor of the Movie 'Bhootnath'-


Saif Ali Khan’s next chartbuster revealed

The song ‘Chhalia’ of ‘Tashan’ has proved to be an instant hit amongst the audience. After weeks of speculation around whether TASHAN songs would ever make it to the music channels, 'Chhalia' was the first to be unveiled around 10 days back. This song is choreographed on Kareena Kapoor.

Now, it’s ‘Dil Haara’ choreographed on Saif Ali Khan, the song has a unique visual appeal to it as yet again it has been shot on outdoor locations which have never been explored earlier in a Bollywood flick. A Sufi rock track rendered by Sukhwinder Singh, 'Dil Haara' has Piyush Mishra's lyrics which are truly different from what one normally expects from a Bollywood love song.

With an ethnic/folkish touch to the proceedings, 'Dil Haara' has an amalgamation of rock and folk sound which makes one sit up and wait to be surprised.

MS Gill wants to link Bollywood with sports

Sports minister MS Gill wants to link Bollywood with sports which he feels will improve India’s performance at the International sports ground. He has urged stars to sponsor outstanding player so that financial assets are not a restriction in their performance. While speaking to the media, Gill asked Bollywood Superstar Shahrukh Khan to sponsor a team or a player and also inspire Indian sports what he did in the film ‘Chak De India’.

Minister MS Gill said “He can begin with sponsoring four women athletes of the Indian relay team. Only Rs 5-10 lakh would be required. I think he can spare that much money for Indian sports.”

The minister said Shah Rukh bought a cricket team at the IPL — the Kolkata Knightriders for a staggering $75.09 million — and though it’s a commercial venture, the star can give something back to the country by sponsoring needy sportsperson.

The minister has precise players for Shahrukh Khan. For other stars like Hrithik Roshan, he said they could pick any player to sponsor. He said, “Except cricket or may be tennis, there is no money in any other sports. If Bollywood joins hands with us, the future of other sports would be bright”.

It was her childhood dream to become Miss India pageant. “I was just seven when I saw Sushmita (Sen) and Aishwarya (Rai) winning the pageant. I decided then that one day I would also be like them,” said Parvathy.

JANNAT is one of them and I am happy to have sunk my teeth into a character which perhaps comes on the big screen for the first time ever".

Emraan also seen his success comes with Solo lead film. Regarding this topic Emraan said with a smiling face "Yes JANNAT too is a solo hero film. However, it's not that I am averse to being a part of the set up where I am required to share screen space with other people around. If I get a script which surprises me, even though it requires a multi starrer set up, I would jump on it. Ultimately, what matters is a project which gives me an ample opportunity to demonstrate my acting capabilities."

‘My Man can be from any walk of life’- Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan, after giving two hits- Bhool Bhulaiya and Heyy Babyy believes that the industry has started offering meaty roles to the actresses. She said, "I'm lucky to be a part of the movie industry when leading ladies are no longer decorative. It's providential that I started with Parineeta."

About her companion Vidya said, "Some people are doctors, others are actors. My companion can be from any walk of life. If he's an actor we can both carry our own mirrors to the sets and be narcissistic individually. And we can have mirrors all over the house. Instead of looking into each other's eyes, we can look into the mirrors," she joked.

After the smash hit in Bhool Bhulaiya, In the year 2008, Vidya Balan supposed to do another film with Priyadarshan. "But there's a problem with the leading man. I'd love to work with Priyan again. I've been fortunate in the fact that directors have signed me more than once."

Nana Patekar getting advantage from ‘Welcome’

Those days are back when Nana used to get handsome remuneration. Yes, Nana is now getting what he used to command during ‘Krantiveer’ and ‘Tiranga’. The actor said “'Welcome' has almost tripled my salary" .

Nana also said "I'm glad the film has worked. As far as I'm concerned, I'm done with a project after I dub and promote it. It was a pleasure doing something in that satirical tone. All of us - director Anees Bazmi, Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Mallika Sherawat and I - we worked hard," Nana, who scorched headlines recently when Tanushree Datta accused him of "indecent behaviour".

Nana says he has never worked so hard and so much. And so what if his speed was somewhat stymied recently when he injured his leg.He said: "But now I'm ready work again, though nothing strenuous to start with. I'll first finish my three days' work for Rakesh Sarang's 'Horn O.K. Pleassse'. Those poor guys have been waiting patiently for me to recover so they could complete their work.”
