I’m Paanchvi fail- Shahrukh Khan

Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan said on Friday that he took the blame for dipping TRPs of his television show ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain’, as he was the biggest attraction on it and did not become attractive enough to get the desired eye balls!!

"Even in my films, it is said that it will get a good opening because I am there. If I consider the same yardstick, a star of my caliber should have brought enough audiences before the television set. If there is no opening and lack of appeal for the show despite my presence, then I think I am responsible. But, I do my best whatever I can do creatively," Shahrukh Khan said to the journalists.

Shahrukh added "May be the format was not appealing, but we were blinded by the original format ('Are you smarter than A fifth grader')"

"There are no options for a question on this show. This brings loneliness where as giving options sees involvement of more than one person. Some have not liked that the contestant at the time of dropping out of the contest, being asked to say that "Hum paanchvi pass se tez nahi hain" (I am not smarter than a fifth grader).

The actor wondered why should there be a problem with the statement because it is not meant to show disrespect. He also said "Grown-ups forget that it is okay not to know everything. They don't realize the beauty of saying I don't know something".


Amitabh Bachchan to recite Bhagwad Gita

Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan after giving his voice to Hanuman Chalisa is all set to recite Bhagwad Gita. This Bhagwad Gita is the name of his late father, the famous poet Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s compilation and not the holy book of the same name. Amitabh Bachchan believes that Bhagwad Gita is one of the unknown works of his late father and that is why he has chosen it to pay a tribute to his genius.

Music director Aadesh Srivastava is already working on the tunes of Bhagwad Gita and discussing the same with Amitabh Bachchan. As per Aadesh Srivastava, he has never seen him as excited over a project as he is about Bhagwad Gita.

Perfectionist Ash with her 10 lakh sunglasses

While shooting in ‘Sarkar Raj’ in scorching heat of Hyderabad, the production team has tried a lot of sunglasses for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for her to wear for the scene.

But Ash was so perfectionist that she was not happy with those sunglasses selected for her. Then she offered to get the sunglasses for herself.

"Ash plays Anita Rajan, an aggressive and ambitious business tycoon - she is the CEO of a power plant. We gave Ash a pair of designer glasses as part of her look in the film. But she didn't like them much and told us that she would get a pair for herself. It sounded fine until we got the bill in hand!" Says a source from the production house.

Then the production house got astonished when they came to know the price…’s 10 lakh!!! Aishwarya had got a pair of Gucci sunglasses from Harrods, London.

What the producers K Sera Sera and Z Picture Company thinking about Aishwarya? Well, 10 lakh might be nothing for the former Miss World and high paid Bollywood actress Aishwarya for her million dollar eyes!!

Aamir Khan’s dog “Shah Rukh”

"I would like to ask Shah Rukh, how it feels to be No.2." Just few months back Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan said when he asked that what he would like to ask Shah Rukh Khan.

In Aamir Khan’s blog he talks about Shah Rukh Khan, that Shah Rukh is licking his feet and asking for his attention. The superstar clarifies that he is talking about his dog named Shah Rukh in his Panchgani home.

After talking potshots at Big B and his film Black late last year, this year it looks like its SRK who is Aamir’s latest punching bag.

"Shah Rukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for? Now, before you jump to any conclusions let me add that Shah Rukh is the name of our dog. And before you jump to any further conclusions let me add that I had nothing to do with naming him. In fact Shah Rukh is the dog of the caretakers of our house. When I bought this house it came with the caretakers and their dog! Apparently Shah Rukh (the actor) was shooting for a commercial in this house a few years ago, and that very day the caretakers bought a pup…, and named him Shah Rukh. What are the chances of me buying a house which comes with a dog called Shah Rukh!!! Some of my friends claim that I bought the house just because of the dog. I would have to be a serious fan of Shah Rukh's to want to do that. Your guess…" Aamir said.

Even before signing off from his blog he takes one final dig at the Baadshah of Bollywood by saying, "Well Shah Rukh is once again begging for my attention, so let me get back to him. He is smelling too much, I think he needs a bath. "Heel boy, heel."

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan puzzled about the failure of ‘Panchvi Pass’

Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan in his blog said that he is puzzled over the falling TRP ratings of game shows like ‘Panchvi Pass’, which is hosted by Shahrukh Khan.

Amitabh Bachchan who used to host the very famous game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’(KBC) wondered whether this type of question- answer type game show are losing the interest of audience or whether the growing number of television channels are responsible for the decline in their TRPs.

"Why is there a depleted performance despite the presence of the biggest name in the business?" he asked. Mr Amitabh Bachchan asked.

He also said "KBC 1 ran non-stop for almost two years and then with an adequate break the 2 and the 3. I am unable to understand its falling interest as the graphs show despite the fact that they were presented by bigger and more popular stars, namely Shah Rukh”.

Nana Patekar as Lord Krishna

‘Rajniti’ the coming directional venture of the director Prakash Jha, where the Indian politics have been shown from the chapters of ‘Mahabharata’. Prakash Jha in an interview said that "Ajay Devgan will play a modern day Karna. And, believe it or not, Nana Patekar, who was fantastic as the corrupt politician in 'Apaharan', has been cast as Lord Krishna".

Also in the cast Vivek Oberoi and Manoj Bajpai are there. "These are actors I've not worked with before. I'm looking forward to directing them.

"Ajay and Nana are old friends. We share a fantastic comfort level."

"Likewise Nana, who was so stunning as a wily politician in 'Apaharan', will I'm sure be equally adept at playing Krishna in my 'Rajniti'," said Jha, who has the politically charged film "GangaaJal" to his credit.

Now the question is that who would play for ‘Arjun’? The character, as conceived by Jha, modernises the mythological elements from the 'Mahabharata'.

Jha is thinking of roping in an upcoming superstar, who's currently being toasted as the most exciting actor since Shah Rukh Khan, to play the role. However, he didn't disclose the name. For that Jha said "Yes, I've an ideal actor in mind for the role of Arjun."

This is not the first contemporary attempt on ‘Mahabharata’. Once the famous director Shyam Benegal also attempted to incorporate elements from the epic into contemporary entrepreneurship in the film ‘Kalyug’.


Movie review- ‘Bhoothnath’

The film ‘Bhoothnath’ is mainly targeted to the kids audience. How is the movie? Is there something in it for the older generation as well? Or is it an out-an-out kiddo movie?

The main characters are ‘Banku’ played by Aman Siddiqui and ‘Kailash Nath’ played by Amitabh Bachchan. The script of the movie is clear and both the performances of Amitabh Bachchan and the child actor Aman Siddiqui are superb! The other castings are Juhi Chawla (who acted as the mother of ‘Banku’), Shahrukh Khan (who played the role of the father of ‘Banku’, has only 30 minutes role), Rajpal Yadav, Satish Shah and Priyanshu Chatterjee. This is a debut film of the director Vivek Sharma.

The story of the film is something like that, Banku and his parents move into a mansion Nath-villa in Goa, which is haunted after the death of Kailash Nath. The bhoot tries every trick in its book to try and scare Banku away, but fails as he stays unaffected. Slowly but steadily a bond develops between the bhoot and Banku, the bhoot gets a new name Bhoothnath!

This film has fun and emotional tale which can be enjoyable for both the kids and their parents. The scenes of Big B and Banku are exceptionally well. The special effects are amazing in the movie. The work of cinematographer Vishnu Rao is good. The music is average.

All the characters have performed very well! And about Big B….once he proved again that why he is being called as legend of Indian cinema!! The make up, performance and the style everything is so realistic that you’ve to give him 100 out of 100. Hats off to him for such an award winning performance!

Also the child actor Aman Siddiqui, brilliant acting Aman! Great, simply great!!

After judging every part of the movie ‘Bhoothnath’ we could naturally expect its Box Office success.

Gossip on Amitabh Bachcan

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is puzzled and amused by a report in a section of the press that he’ll be seen in a role of Mujibur Rahman, Bangladesh’s founding father.

Just before boarding his flight back to Mumbai, Amitabh Bachchan said "I've no idea what all this is about. Many mediapersons have been calling since yesterday. I can't say where and how this report originated from. But it is not true,"

The report also quoted a film producer as saying that Bachchan's son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya will also feature in this bio-pic. Again Bachchan said "I've no clue about this. There's nothing to it. At least not as far as I'm concerned. I'm hearing all this talk about this film for the first time."

This is not the first time when producers have made premature or unfounded announcements about the presence of Amitabh Bachchan in a project!
