• India's entry to Oscars is always riddled with controversy and this year is no different

    When Gyan Correa's debut film 'The Good Road' left behind films like 'The Lunchbox', 'Ship of Theseus' 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' and 'English Vinglish', not everyone was cheering and most let their displeasure known through the social networking sites. Karan Johar who presented 'The Lunchbox' was quick to post on twitter 'Really shocked and dissapointed....#LUNCHBOX had every factor working in its favour...we may have just lost our golden chance....SAD!!!'. Soon to follow suit was Anurag Kashyap who posted "Feeling very, very disappointed, can't comment on the film I have not seen, but it better make it to final five... I hope and pray I am wrong and it actually is a film that knocks the socks off everyone," and followed it up with, "I don't know who the federation is. But it goes to show, why we completely lack the understanding to make films that can travel across borders."

  • Rumour has it that Shahid Kapoor gave a tough time to the 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' director

    Starry tantrums have been a part of the glamour industry since ages. Even the ones who don’t have many successful films in their kitty throw a tantrum or a two. The latest to join the bandwagon is none other than Shahid Kapoor who has apparently harrowed the director of his latest movie.

    The movie may have a song 'Mai Tere Agal Bagal Hun' but Shahid seems to be staying far away from the sets. Sources revealed to zoOm that during the shoot of the movie, Rajkumar Santoshi went a little overboard one day and consumed a little more than extra time of the actor than what was actually scheduled. While Shahid remained mum at that time, he turned the table on the director the next day. Sasha was apparently so miffed with the director that he did not report on the set at all the next day. The director got a drift of things and quietly changed the schedule as per Sasha’s fancies.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.”

    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.”

  • 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

  • The war between Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan just hot hotter. Here's the inside story

    This is straight out of a Bollywood pot boiler adhering to the old adage that ‘Dushman ka dushman dost hota hai' (enemy’s enemy is a friend). And ofcourse, there is no better way of getting back at your enemy than favouring his ex-girlfriend.

    The cold war between Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid khan just got icy cool with Khan’s ex Jaquiline Fernandes being cast in the much controversial ‘Kick’ opposite Salman Khan. While Jacky may be basking in the glory of this big-budget film, her ex-beau Sajid is not smiling. The insiders claim that there is no merit involved in casting Jacky when names of Deepika Padukone were in the fray. Sources say that this casting coup was directed towards his erstwhile friend Sajid Khan and Shirish Kunder. 'Kick' which is a remake of a South Indian film was announced with much fanfare last year with Shirish as the director. That was before Joker bombed. With the film, Shirish’s

    Two days after Mallika Sherawat made the sweeping statements about India being a regressive society and the plight of Indian women is depressing; she is on a damage control mode. Her twitter handle which goes by @MallikaLA (What better way to show off her non-existent International status) says, “ I said Whats happening to women in India is regressive and depressing and I stand by it # RAPE”.

    In an interview to the online edition of Variety edition, Mallika, with her fake accent emphasized why she has made a ‘conscious decision’ to divide her time between Los Angeles and India. No, she didn’t talk about her non-existent Bollywood career or the fact that no producer is casting her. As she rolled her eyes and lips simultaneously to work on her fake American accent (so much so that she forgets to accent each word during the interview), she
