  • The Indian automobile industry has been on top gear ever since the complete de-licensing in 1991. Even when the global auto industry went into reverse gear in 2009, the Indian industry bucked the trend and is expected to become the world's third largest automobile market by 2030.

    In India, automobile jobs have been a catalyst of major employment for quite sometime. It is one or the main sectors to provide jobs to qualified people in manufacturing industries, production plants, service centres, govt transport corporations, private transport companies, insurance companies, motor vehicle departments and so on. Globalisation and robust growth of auto industry have resulted in abundant opportunities for automobile engineers abroad, too. Well, like any other organisation, automobile sector also offers plenty of employment opportunities including even receptionists and office boys. We're not going to discuss all that junk here, but some of the leading and promising careers in the industry

  • She called her a 'Kali Billi' on the sets of 'Ajnabee' and her then boyfriend John Abraham 'expressionless'.
    She retorted by saying 'she has too many expressions'.

    Who are these two who seems to be fighting like they are in middle school? None other than Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu.

    Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir KhanEvery other day, we get to hear a new story about how a particular actor had a spat with another particular actor and they are "now" not on talking terms with each other.

    From Bollywood superstars like Amitabh Bachchan to smaller actors like Dino Morea, they all have someway or the other been involved in very public battles with their colleagues from the Bollywood film industry.

    This following story Y! Lifestyle tells you about some of the top battles between Bollywood stars and why they are not on talking terms.

  • Creative people are often written off as people with limited understanding or interest in the financial aspect of any business. This notion is openly rubbished by Ashish Patil, Business and Creative Head — Y Films, the Youth Films Division at Yash Raj Films Pvt. Ltd. Most would have heard of his latest release, Luv Ka The End, that he has written and produced and he's busy writing two other films that he would be producing as well for the same banner this year.

    What Ashish did before Y Films

    Clearly, Ashish didn't appear out of thin air. With 17 years of experience in the media and entertainment business, he started his career writing copy for Contract Advertising and due to pressure to "get a real job" he went to Business School to major in Marketing. His love for creative brought him back to advertising and account planning at SSC&B Lintas where he handled a range of clients covering a 3rd of the agency's billings — from FMCG's, Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Durables to Alcohol and

  • Bollywood is famous for trying to imitate classic Hollywood flicks into the Indian context. The end result is sometimes magical, but more often than not, it is just a confused remake that causes nothing but a massive headache to the moviegoer.

    But, I must mention some of the better remakes that I have watched. I remember watching the Will Smith starrer 'Hitch' and loving it. When it was remade into 'Partner', it might not have done well at the box office, but I certainly thought it was a good masala entertaining movie.

    Also spare a thought for 'MunnaBhai MBBS'. Now a classic Bollywood flick, it was copied from the Hollywood classic 'Patch Adams'. Both were beautiful.

    This following story from Y! Lifestyle gives you 10 'remade' movies that completely flopped, not only at the box office, but also with critics and fans alike. But, it's not just that. These are simply BAD remakes.

  • Meet the Royal Wedding car

    All eyes were on Prince William as he arrived at the Westminster Abbey, resplendent in a red tunic of the Irish Guards and accompanied by Prince Harry. But certainly there were a lot of eyes that were stuck on the Bentley State Limousine that carried the groom, one of the most exclusive cars by virtue of being the only one ever made.

    Designed with input from the Queen herself, Prince Phillip and the head chauffeur, this bespoke limo ensures it's perfect for the Royal family's exacting standards.

    Understandably, details of this one-off limo are scant. Three feet longer, 10 inches taller, and six inches wider than a standard Bentley Arnage, it is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 6.75-litre V8 Engine that has been modified from Bentley's Arnage R version to produce 400 hp (300 kW) and 616 lb•ft (835 N•m) of torque. Maximum speed is 130 mph (210 km/h). It is equipped with broad coach doors that open to the rear almost 90 degrees.

    The car has been given armoured bodywork and glass, a

  • A still from Chalo Dilli

    Cast: Lara Dutta, Vinay Pathak

    Directed by Shashant Shah

    Rating: ***

    Films have always capitalised on misfit jodis for generations. From 'Beauty and the Beast' to 'Laurel and Hardy', one has observed that painfully different people collectively make great cinema. There is just something about every 'ugly' that drives every 'pagli' insane and capturing just that makes a great popcorn watch.

    Our unarguably disparate couple here include Mr 'Buffoon bhaisaab' aka Manu Gupta (Vinay Pathak), a saree trader from Chandni Chowk and Mrs 'La-di-da behenji' aka Mihika Mukherjee (Lara Dutta), an investment banker with a penchant for vanity. The two are thrown together as their flight from Mumbai to Delhi is diverted to Jaipur and their journey to reach their final destination becomes an unending yet delightful trip.

    Manu is man of thousand words and each and every one of them is politically incorrect and usually shamelessly intrusive, if not offensive. While Mihika is a selectively social,

  • A still from Shor in the city

    Cast: Tusshar Kapoor, Radhika Apte, Nikhil Dwivedi, Pitobash Tripathi, Senthil Ramamurthy, Zakir Hussain

    Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK

    Rating: ** 1/2

    Films about Mumbai have always thrived on stereotypes and will continue to do so. But despite the cliches, 'Shor in the City' manages to bring it together, tickling and terrorizing you in equal proportion. And Shor's biggest merit is that it doesn't forcefully weave the parallel stories that light up the screen (down with Kukunoor!). The characters may spill over from one to the other but don't necessarily become game-changers for the neighbouring plot.

    So let's get to the root of the shor. The film is divided into three parallel stories being narrated in snatches during Mumbai's noisiest time of the year- the ten-day celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi (the best way to maximise the tittle?). The first is a 'dark' tale (not a pun on the complexion) of Abhay (Sendhil Ramamurthy), a US-returned businessman who wants to set up a

  • Great Expectations

    Living in the shadows of India's one and only superstar and a respected actress who in her heydays was the epitome of grace onscreen and, dare I say it, the world's most recognised beautiful face, ex beauty queen turned somewhat of a crossover phenomenon in films who commands a princely sum for the smallest endorsement, must be a huge burden for someone who's time and again faced criticism for his bad run at the box office.

    Now add to it that the former two are his parents and the latter is his wife who enjoys global recognition like no other Bollywood star has or probably ever will. Even Atlas would have shrugged.

    If anyone deserves a break from the constant comparisons, expectations and enormous pressure of being a star son and star husband, it's Abhishek Bachchan.

    I remember being a staunch Aamir Khan loyalist when I first set eyes on Abhishek. I was whizzing past Mumbai's High Court after a lovely dinner at a colleague's house, and we stopped when we saw Abhishek along with his

  • We have heard constant denials from them. Deepika has maintained that what she shares with Mallya Jr is nothing but a very close friendship. While they are always seen at social events together and Deepika is present at every IPL match to cheer the Royal Challengers Bangalore, they refuse to acknowledge that they are a couple. The very public lip-lock however seems to tell a very different story.

    Check the video:

    Does this mean that while they maintain the 'no comments' stance on their relationship, they have actually sealed it with a kiss? Or was it just a spontaneous show of affection?

    Tell us what you think?

  • Big B quits Ram Gopal Varma's 'Department', hurt by Ramu's SMS about his son's latest release. Is Bollywood getting too sensitive?

    It's not business, it's personal, particularly for our beloved B'wood biggies. Muck squirted on beta Ranbir on 'Koffee with Karan' and daddy refuses to act in Karan's next. Then, one is familiar with this unsaid (and obvious) pattern in failed Bollywood relationships: the two can't be co-stars in the future, won't be seen at social or promotional events together and would be glad to skip even attending the premiere of each other's movies. So, the break-up is more like a social media exercise. And did you wonder why Shahid and Kareena weren't cast as a pair again despite being a superhit onscreen jodi? Well, it could have something to do with them parting ways off-screen just before the release of Jab We Met and also that's when Kareena met Saif. Or are we over-editorialising this?

    Another classic case-study is Bollywood's own bad boy, Salman Khan. You
