  • Why Saif got sunburnt

    Saif goes to extreme lengths to achieve an authentic look for Bullett Raja

    Saif Ali Khan who is essaying the role of a rural and raw gangster based in the state of UP for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullett Raja has been going the extra mile for this film, in a most unique manner.

    Our little birdie from the film set tells us that the actor was required to get a tanned look for his earthy son of soil character and to get into the crux of it, Saif Ali Khan sat outside his van during afternoons to get the natural tan instead of pancake.

    A source close to the team said, ‘Saif really puts in a lot of effort to get into his character. Tigmanshu wanted a certain tanned look since he is playing the role of a rural gangster. When Saif learnt this, he decided that instead of the makeup he would sit outside his van in the afternoons to get the natural tanned look. We all told him that it was not necessary to do that as it was really scorching hot, but he did not listen to us.”

  • How Saroj Khan’s loss was Farah’s gain

    Here’s what the ace choreographer-director has to say about her journey in Bollywood
    Farah Khan’s ‘riches to rags’ story is straight out of a Bollywood film. Ask her about that and she jokes, “A really bad Bollywood script.” In conversation with noted journalist Indu Mirani  at ‘Boss Dialogues’, Farah was at her candid best as she spoke about her life and how her brother Sajid Khan went through a phase where they were afraid that he might turn out to be a juvenile delinquent.

    “That made me grow up really fast,” she admitted. But all Bollywood scripts have a happy ending and her journey from choreographer to director has been an eventful one. “I have to thank Sarojji [Khan] for not showing up on the sets of Jo Jeeta Woh Sikander,” she says with a laugh. “I went from fourth assistant to
    choreographer that day.”

    Farah had brought along her assistant choreographer Kiran for the interactive session. He demonstrated moves that certain stars should do or moves that stars should never do. When anRead More »from How Saroj Khan’s loss was Farah’s gain

    Karan Johar will play antagonist  in Anurag Kashyap's 'Bombay Velvet'

    Director, producer, writer, chat show host, reality dance show judge: Karan Johar’s CV could rival that of the very best in showbiz. But the one thing the 41-year-old hasn’t done — a few cameos aside — is take up a serious acting role. Now, that is set to change.Few days back, Karan decided to take up an offer to act in Anurag Kashyap’s next, Bombay Velvet. Karan says the offer ‘came out of the blue’. In the film, he will be seen playing the ‘antagonist’ opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
    “Yes, it’s true that I’m acting in Bombay Velvet, and of course, it’s unusual for me,” Karan says, adding, “I was blown away by the narrative. And all the cast members — besides Ranbir and Anushka (Sharma, lead actress) — have strong roles in Anurag’s film. Since I’m playing an antagonist, there are shades of grey to my character.”

    Over a decade-and-half ago, Karan played a cameo in the Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol-starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

  • Is Aamir over-doing his perfection?

    The actor’s constant interference during the making of the TVC commercial has the brand fuming

    Aamir Khan can most certainly be called as the Brand King when it comes to endorsement deals. He has left the other Khans way behind in the brand world by reportedly charging a whopping Rs. 88 crores to endorse eight products across a well-known consumer products group. But sources claim that all is not well in the deal.

    The well-known brand who products Aamir is endorsing is quite unhappy about Aamir’s attitude and his interference. Though getting a big star like him hasn’t much changed their sales much, his unavailability during the scheduled promotional activities or the press conferences till date has the brand miffed. No only that, sources told Zoom TV recently that Aamir’s constant interference during the making of the TVC has taken the focus away from the products and the TVC has turned out to be completely Aamir centric.

    Furthermore, according to sources close to the star, Aamir is of
