Talking about the comfort level she shares with Ali, Aditi to a leading daily said, “Ali is the nicest and most decent in bed.”

The room had a beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower and the sky adorned a rainbow. The atmosphere was perfect for shooting lovemaking scenes.

MALAMAAL WEEKLY 2 ON THE ROLL- MUHURAT PICS

The calm of Wahi was not disturbed bythe sound of shoot. It was a calm and cordial atmosphere on the sets of PerceptPictures’ latest comic caper, directed by Priyadarshan. Shailendra Singhlistened with great interest as director Priyadarshan seemed at ease, sittingin a sugarcane field, discussing the scene with Nana Patekar and ShreyasTalpade.
It has taken more than a year to setthe film up and move it to the shoot level. When quizzed, Singh is clear. “Wewanted to look beyond the star culture, to look at a league of extraordinarygentlemen, extraordinary actors, who would bring their own flavour and addvalue to the script. Co-ordinating their dates was no easy task.”
True. For, the film that is helmed byPriyadarshan, stars Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Nana Patekar, Rajpal Yadav, ShreyasTalpade, Asrani and Shakti Kapoor among others and is set in real settings.
Nana Patekar is excited to be part ofa Priyan film. “We had planned so many films, but it feels to good when onefilm happens. More than anything else, I love to act and leave the rest to mydirector. That is what happens with Priyan,” enthuses Nana.
For Shreyas, it is a “double whammy.I am excited in working with Priyan Sir and Nana ji,” says Shreyas. “And whenShailendra Singh called me and told me I was in,:” I couldn’t control myexcitement.”
Tucking into pakoras, dhoklas andsome hot pav bhaji, the entire unit is working with great enthusiasm in the lapof nature in the banks of a river, with all actors chilling out between inplastic chairs in the sugarcane fields, with Nana’s infectious  laughtercutting through the air, as Priyan answers our query of Nana’s romantic leadwith “the only person Nana can be romantic with me in this film is me. He is adirector’s actor. He doesn’t need a woman.” Touche!

The Oscars 2012











And so it came to pass that the 2012 Oscars went pretty much entirely with the predictions beforehand. Perhaps the most easy-to-guess bunch of winners in years, at least based on the nominations least, it’s hard to find a single category that didn’t go with expectation this year, as The Artist swept up many of the main prizes.
Amongst the highlights? You’d have to have a heart of stone not to applaud the decision to bestow on Oscar on The Muppets’ song, Man Of Muppet. Likewise, Rango taking home the Best Animated Feature prize was a reward for Hollywood’s richest and best animated movie of 2011.
The snub of the night? For us, that was the special effects prize going to Hugo, over Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2. It remains odd, especially considering the later films, that the Academy has never rewarded the often-astonishing effects work in Potter. Our hope, at the least, is that the team behind it had a good night out.
Still, the night belonged to The Artist (and Hugo, on the technical side, which left Transformers: Dark Of The Moon statueless, scandalously. Ahem.) and here’s the full list of winners…

Mandy's incentive to loose weight

Mandy Takhar is a true Punjabi kudi in every way and more so with regards to her eatinghabits. She weighed around 65 kgs and had a waist size of 34 inches, and is a completefast food freak. However at the audition of Bumboo when they asked her if shewas willing to wear a bikini in the film, she accepted the offer and took it up asa challenge.
She then consulted a nutritionist and stuck to a strict vegetariandiet and also enrolled herself for kick boxing classes and dutifully managed to knock off 15Kgs in just a month and a half so she could look stunning in a bikini. It paid off as she stands out for being the only lady in an all male starcast

Blood Money - Amrita Puri wants to make it big

Amrita Puri wants to make it on her own... 


Who would have thought that Amrita Puri, who belongs to a highprofile financial bigwig’s family would be struggling like a new comer to be infilms.  And that too as a choice.Surprised, we were too when we heard about it.
Amrita Puri is daughter of financial wizard and head honchoof HDFC Aditya Puri.

If she wanted she could have got any number of films to do,however she has chosen the difficult path and decided to struggle like any newcomer and break new grounds on her own.
Appreciated for her work in Aisha, where she played Sonam Kapoor'syounger friend, she is now returning to celluloid with Blood Money oppositeKunal Khemu. 
She like any new comer given auditions and bagged the roleon her merit.
Like her real life, her character in Blood Money is someonewho believes in making mark in career on her own terms and not using any shortcuts to achieve goals whereas Kunal Khemu's character is someone who will notstop at anything to achieve success. Amrita Puri plays Kunal Khemu's wife, who is an anchor and almost his conscious.
Blood Money releasing on 30th March, is a tale ofa small town guy who comes to a city with a lot of dreams and grit to achievethose dreams whatever may be the cost.

Iqbal Sharma’s wife Tarina Patel has acted in several Bollywood films

The South African entrepreneur who got into the infamous brawl with the Agent Vinod actor says he doesn’t watch Hindi films and had no clue about Saif Ali Khan’s celebrity status. Amusing, coming from the man whose wife herself has been acting in Bollywood films
Iqbal Meer Sharma, the south African businessman who has been in the news for being allegedly assaulted by Saif Ali Khan at the Taj hotel in Mumbai, claims that he was not aware of Saif Ali Khan’s celebrity status and would not recognise the star if he had walked past him on the street. Now we had almost bought this claim of his, but what got us suspicious was the glitzy portfolio of Iqbal’s wife Tarina Patel who was there at the restaurant when the ugly spat broke out. Tarina has acted in several Bollywood films including Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Dhol and Dus Kahaniyaan. So, isn’t it hard to digest that her NRI husband did not know who Saif Ali Khan was?
Iqbal claims that he has not seen a single Bollywood film in the last 20 years and apparently watched only those his wife has acted in. It is believable that Sharma has very little connection with showbiz, but when he was having dinner with his starlet wife at Wasabi, didn’t Tarina update her hubby on the celebs sitting on the table right next to them? Referring to Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan and Amrita Arora, Iqbal says he doesn’t even know who the girls were. The man is now sorry that his wife’s career might suffer for the fight he picked up with the Nawab of Pataudi. Really, was there even a career? Wethinks it might actually get Tarina noticed a bit! Take a look at her pics and tell us what you think.

She plans to outdoall the previous dance numbers done so far and carry more zing, energy andsexier moves into her dance. Coming back to shoot after a two months longholiday in Brazil, she has straight away plunged into rehearsals for the dance.According to the producer Sandeep she is playing the role of a nautankiwali inthe film and to be the best she is rehearsing almost for 18 hours a day sincelast 10 days. “She is one dedicated girl. Although she dances well but to do anautanki item number as a nautankiwali her moves have to be more earthy andindianised. Then this dance is for the film and has to fit into the independentcharms of the storyline. So she is putting her heart and soul into it. Shewants to outshine all the item numbers done till date in the industry and theway she understands and imbibing the steps, emotions and expressions into hermoves is amazing. It will be one helluva of a dance.”
PranamWalekum, satirical comedy directed by Sanjay Mishra is moving at a fast pace.It has been shot extensively at outdoor location of Bhor.

After Jacqueline Fernandez, it’s Gamya Wijayadasa!

Sri Lankan beauty Gamya is all set to make her Bollywood debut, but she makes it very clear that she doesn’t expect any help from compatriot Jacqueline to boost her career
Miss Sri Lanka 2009 Gamya Wijayadasa will make an entry into Bollywood with an item number called Chadhti jawaani. Directed by Manish Manikpuri, the film is titled Alaap and is based on Naxalism in Chattisgarh. Ironically, the new babe doesn’t know a word of Hindi and, when she was approached for the song, she agreed to perform to the number instantly. Despite the fact that she didn’t understand the lyrics or the concept of the song, it seems the actor managed to pull off the rustic dance moves pretty well. The item song is composed by Agnee, a rock band known for soulful compositions. The song has been shot in Raipur and the film stars Pitobash, Rituparna Sengupta, Amit Purohit and Raghuvir Yadav.
Although we wait to see if she can match steps with beauties like Katrina Kaif and Malaika Arora Khan, who have already created waves with their seductive dance moves, the bad news is that Gamya also has Vidya Balan and Kareena Kapoor as competition, both stars being fairly new entrants in the shake-your-booty battleground.

Now, as Oskar crosses the five New York boroughs in quest of the missing lock – encountering an eclectic assortment of people who are each survivors in their own way – he begins to uncover unseen links to the father he misses, to the mother who seems so far away from him and to the whole noisy, dangerous, discombobulating world around him.
