    Says Poonam Pandey about her bold character in her debut film ‘Nasha’. More

    Poonam Pandey is having sleepless nights. Her tweet reads, “Tweethearts! Yaar Tenssion aa gaya ... cudnt sleep Last night. .. Just just 3 days to go 26th July,”. For the uninitiated, Poonam’s debut film Nasha is hitting the screen this week. For someone who is yet to prove her mettle, the starlet has 4,07950 followers on twitter. But there is nothing random in the economics of being Poonam Pandey. Apart from her strategist, she has a team of 17 people (including two lawyers) who manage her website and social networking sites. "Before posting any pictures on the site, I send them to my lawyers so that I don't get into any legal hassle,"she says. Strategy or fore-sightedness, it seems to have worked well for her.

  • First look of 'Madras Cafe'

    The first look of Shoojit Sircar's Madras Cafe is out. Here's a look

    John Abraham teams up yet again with his Vicky Donor director Shoojit Sircar for a nail-biting thriller Madras Café.  The film  is based in Sri Lanka and was initially titled as Jaffna but the makers finally settled for Madras Café. The film is shot in Sri Lanka and it takes a lot of inspiration from the real life political unrest in Jaffna.

    In the film John teams up with quizmaster Siddharth Basu who makes his Bollywood debut with Madras Café. Nargis Fakhri plays a hard-core journalist which is quite an antithesis to the girl next door o.f Rockstar. John is back to his favorite genre and plays an accomplished para military officer, is newly recruited to RAW (India’s external security agency), by the Indian head – Deshmukh with the mandate to execute certain covert Intelligence operations, to ensure the success of the PM’s Lankan accord – ‘the Indo-Lankan peace accord’.
