'Jai Ho' makers wanted 'Xerox'

After using brand names like Zandu Balm in "Dabangg" and Fevicol in "Dabangg 2", the makers of Salman Khan's "Jai Ho" have come up with a peppy number called "Photocopy".

However, their first choice was "Xerox".

"Earlier, the word Xerox was decided to be used in the song but getting permission to use the brand name would have been time consuming, so we stuck to photocopy. I'm glad that the song has got very good response from the audience," Sohail Khan, director of the film, said in a statement.

"Jai Ho" also features Tabu and Om Puri. It is slated to release Jan 24, 2014.

When Big B wanted Shammi Kapoor's jacket

Today he makes style statements that people follow, but there was a time when Amitabh Bachchan used to look up to Hindi film stars for fashion trends.

"I remember coming out of a theatre after seeing Shammi Kapoorji's 'Tumsa Nahin Dekha', wanting to be in possession of the jacket worn by him in a scene that was shot at a hill station - a coloured checked jacket with a belt around the waist," Amitabh posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com late Tuesday night.

However, due to financial constraints, he could not go and buy a similar jacket.

"I remember too that not having the means to be able to purchase one, I had asked my mother to cut up a blanket that resembled the colours of the coat, and stitch me one. She did do it, and it became my most favoured apparel possession," he added.

On the movies front, the 71-year-old is busy shooting his film "Bhootnath Returns".
