    Titled ‘Gandi Baat’, the song will have Prabhudheva and Shahid Kapoor matching steps onscreen

    Ace choreographer Prabhu Deva and Shahid Kapoor are all set to create sensation with their new song ‘Gandi Baat’ from Rambo Rajkumar. While we can’t help but snicker at the chosen title of the song, we are rest assured, given the presence of these two stars that the song is going to be a high octane number.

    While Prabhu Deva has performed on-screen on songs in the past, the director-choreographer is extremely excited to perform alongside Shahid Kapoor who in his opinion is one of Bollywood's most talented performers.

    The song composed by Pritam will be shot in a bar setting, rehearsals of which are currently in process. If sources are to be believed, so excited is the duo that they are making time for special rehearsals before the song shoot goes on floors. Talking about the song says composer Pritam, “With Prabhudheva and Shahid Kapoor we needed a track high on tempo and energy and we are

  • Heard this: Saif- Riteish in triple roles?


    Vashu Bhagnani's Humshakals, directed by filmmaker Sajid Khan starring Saif Ali Khan promises to be an entertainer.

    After helming the two successful 'Housefull', the director returns to direct Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor for the first time in triple roles.

    After the not-so-private fallout between Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan over 'Housefull' franchise and the failure of Sajid's ambitious 'Himmatwala', he is all geared up to make this a success. The film is slated to go on floors in September 2013 after Saif completes his home production and will be shot extensively abroad at never before seen locations. Saif’s shooting schedule for Bullett Raja (BR) has kept the actor from starting work on his home production. Although he has finished shooting for the Tigmanshu Dhulia's film, he has one song left. He has now postponed the filming of that song as he wants to concentrate on his home production. The untitled film will be helmed by the director-duo, Raj Nidimoru and

  • How the Nawab found his Biryani

    Saif Ali Khan was in for a surprise when he managed to get his favourite cuisine at the sets

    Saif Ali Khan is known for his penchant for Nawabi food and while shooting in Lucknow for Bullett Raja with Sonakshi Sinha, Saif had to make do with whatever was available on sets. But his joys knew no bounds when he got his favorite biryani on the sets.

    What we hear from the sets is that the few locals were so happy to have the team shooting in their locality that one day they went out of their way and brought home cooked food for the entire crew.

    A source close to the team said, “We have been shooting in Lucknow since quite a long time now and we were all feeling very homesick. It was that one day a group of ladies came to Saif and offered him some homemade mutton Biryani. Saif loved it so much that he couldn’t stop praising the Biryani. And the next day we saw huge dabba’s filled with home cooked Biryani not only for Saif but for the entire team.”

    ‘It was really very sweet of those ladies that

    Did you know that Hrithik's house in 'Guzaarish' and the tidal wave in 'Chandni chowk to China' wasn't real? Read on


    While shooting for 'Guzaarish', Sanjay Leela Bansali had a tough time making Hrithik’s house look authentic in the shots. An old church outside Goa which was turned into his house, looked different in each shots throughout the day. As the sun unpredictably brightened and dimmed each time, the look of the church changed. But the enormous grand house that we see in the film was actually a computer graphics creation, complete with broken windowpanes, the dramatic sky in the backdrop and a CG carpet drying outside. And the person responsible for this transformation was Merzin Tavaria, Co-founder & Chief Creative Director at Prime Focus and his team.
