Recently a lot of websites and tabloids reported that Deepika Padukone might have gotten her RK tattoo removed considering the actress can be seen insinuating audience to look at her no-tattoo neck in the latest cola advertisement. However, now it has been learnt by our sources that the actress might get her RK tattoo altered into an RS one. No points for guessing that RS stands for Ranveer Singh, her latest alleged love flame. Looks like in the cola advertisement, the actress might have camouflaged her tattoo with a good concealer to get the feel of no-tattoo neck only to get it altered later.

Recently, the actress was also spotted wearing a gold love necklace which was rumoured to have been gifted to her by Ranveer Singh. Speculations are rife that this duo is moving ahead pretty fast in their relationship. Deepika is someone who has never kept her love life under the wraps. When the actress was in relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, she went all out there giving interviews, speaking aloud of her feelings and even got Ranbir Kapoor’s initials inked at the nape of her neck. However, when the couple got separated, instead of getting the tattoo removed, Deepika chose to live with it even as she continued being friends with Ranbir Kapoor. But now, having found love again, buzz has it that Deepika is contemplating getting the tattoo altered into an RS.

It has been learnt that tattoo alteration process is one that entails a lot of pain and cost both- Double whammy for the actress!

The latest cola advertisement has Deepika in a rather brash mood where she tells the audience to stop staring at her neck and start looking at the neck of the cola bottle.

So far, post break up with Ranbir, Deepika has dealt very strongly about people prying at her neck to check out her tattoo.

But things might go for a change after her alleged relationship with Ranveer Singh sources confirm.

Besides being extremely beautiful and having dated Salman Khan in the past, Bollywood divas Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Katrina Kaif have another thing in common and that is friendship. Both of them have been spotted hanging out together in Abu Dhabi and are bonding very well.

A Bollywood Mantra report says Katrina met Aishwarya during her Bang Bang shoot in Abu Dhabi while she happened to be at the same place during a stopover on her way to the Cannes Film Festival. Both of them caught up and dined together at an upscale Japanese restaurant in Abu Dhabi with another female friend. They were both very comfortable in each other’s company despite rumoured differences between them in their past.

Rumours said that both the actresses avoided each other earlier as they were both dating Salman in the past. When Aishwarya visited her husband Abhishek Bachchan on the sets of Dhoom 3 set last year in Chicago, she apparently ignored Katrina completely.

However, now it seems that both of them have moved on in their life and are hence bonding. Another new B-Town friendship?

Hasee Toh Phasee actress Parineeti Chopra, all of four films old, is reportedly avoiding signing films with the three Khans – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir.

Parineeti reportedly believes that her character will have “nothing to do” in a movie co-starring one of the Khans, still the most in-demand heroes in a film industry inundated with young talent like Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti’s Ishaqzaade co-star Arjun Kapoor.

Her fears may be rooted in the fact that all the three Khans have larger-than-life images which overshadow all their releases.

However, this could be the reason why her resume is still missing a blockbuster. Cousin Priyanka Chopra has held her own in multiple hits with Shah Rukh and Salman; Sonakshi Sinha debuted in Salman’s Dabangg to become hot property. All things considered, is Parineeti’s strategy wrong-headed?

With Hrithik playing lead in ‘Mohenjo Daro’, every other actress claimed to have been approached for it. We analyse how actresses don’t seem to shy from clamouring for a berth in big banner films.

So who will be Hrithik Roshan’s heroine in Ashutosh Gowariker’s upcoming film, ‘Mohenjo Daro’? Ever since the filmmaker finalised his hero for this slice-of-history project, every other B-Town actress has been claiming (or is it, clamouring?) to have been approached for the love story.

From Katrina Kaif to Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor — they have all been apparently approached for this film that is named after the largest settlement of the ancient Indus Valley civilisation in 2600 BC. Some of the stars are said to have even turned down the offer.

Meanwhile, Sonakshi Sinha met the filmmaker evincing interest in the project. There has also been buzz about Anushka Sharma meeting Gowariker in a bid to increase her chances of bagging the project. Though, of course, Anushka’s spokesperson denies this. “There is no truth to it,” is the stance.

Then again, this is not the only film where actresses are said to be vying against each other for a plum role. There was similar buzz about who will be Salman Khan’s heroine in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo’ with every actress — big and small — being considered for the role.

Nowadays even before the film goes on the floors, it has created a buzz for its casting. Says a source, “Till the filmmaker officially announces the cast, several names keep doing the rounds. Often a filmmaker does not deny the news so as to not upset anyone. For an actress, it may be her way of being wanted and be part of the one-upmanship game vis-à-vis her rivals. At times, names are floated by those close to the actress — it is their way of keeping them in the fray of big ticket films.”

Interestingly, Gowariker has preferred to keep mum so far. Meanwhile, we will keep a count of who else is claiming to have been approached.

Industry watcher Taran Adarsh states, “Casting issues are becoming a trend nowadays. A filmmaker may want a different combination of actors and may approach them. If it is a period drama, he could do costume trials. But all this does not mean that they are in the film. A filmmaker may have his shoot schedule in place, but the actor may not be available at that time. Or else an actor may get another offer in the meanwhile and he/she may decide to take on that project.”

In the pastIn 2012, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was all set to make Ram-Leela with Kareena Kapoor. After Bebo decided to drop out, a surprised Bhansali announced, referring to her wedding with Saif Ali Khan later that year, that his Juliet could not be a married woman.

Not surprisingly, as soon as Bebo backed out, other B-Town actresses eyed the role. There was a buzz about Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor trying to stake a claim, although it was Deepika Padukone who ultimately bagged the role.

Another project of Bhansali’s that has been in the planning stage for over a decade is Bajirao Mastani. Several actresses — including Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra — were allegedly offered the role of Mastani but now apparently Deepika has been finalised.

Names galoreKaran Johar’s long-in-the-planning film, Shuddhi, has made enough news about its casting. When original choice Kareena Kapoor opted out, names of Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra did the rounds.

Starring with SalmanAs soon as Sooraj Barjatya announced his Salman Khan-starrer, Prem Ratan Dhan Payon, there was a lot of speculation about who will feature in the film.

Finally, Sonam Kapoor’s name was announced. Given that Barjatya and Sallu are teaming up 15 years after their last outing, Hum Saath Saath Hain, there was understandably a lot of curiosity about the project. The film is supposed to go on the floors in the last week of June.

From Kareena Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone to Ileana D’Souza, Daisy Shah, Diana Penty and even Elli Avram — they were all allegedly considered at some point of time for this long-in-the-planning film. Whether they were really considered or the names were just tossed around is anybody’s guess.

Abhishek’s wait for his heroineDirector Umesh Shukla’s last film OMG: Oh My God! did not have an actress. For his next project, All The Best, starring Abhishek Bachchan, several names were supposedly in the fray.

Many are said to have been approached; some were apparently given a hearing of the script. In fact, Shukla’s hunt for an actress opposite Junior Bachchan created more buzz than the film itself till Asin was roped in. Among the actresses rumoured to star in his film was Diana Penty. She was apparently given a narration of the script, but she did not sign on the dotted line. Buzz about her being Abhishek’s heroine gained credence when Junior Bachchan posted on his micro-blogging site at that time, “Guys, show the love to @_dianapenty welcome to the chaos D!” It was assumed that he was welcoming her on Twitter because she was chosen to act opposite him.

Apparently, Shraddha Kapoor too had turned down this role in favour of Mohit Suri’s film, Ek Villain, opposite Sidharth Malhotra.

Salman fans have another chance to rejoice as the actor will reportedly re-unite with his ex-flame Katrina Kaif. This time, Salman and Katrina will be seen together on the big screen again! One of the favourite on-screen celebrity couple were last seen in 2012?s blockbuster film, Ek Tha Tiger.

Now if all goes according to the plan, then Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will again woe their fans worldwide by appearing together on-screen.

According to a leading daily, Salman and Katrina will be coming together again to shoot for a promotional song for Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut film.

The film stars Jacqueline Fernandez in the female lead opposite Salman Khan. An industry insider revealed that when the discussion on who will be cast opposite Salman in the promotional song, every one including Sajid suggested Katrina’s name.

If this turns out to be true, then Salman and Katrina will be seen dancing together for the second time. Last time we saw Katrina dancing with Salman on an item song was in Bodyguard way back in 2011. Salman is reportedly yet to say Okay to the idea proposed for the promotional song of Kick.

The reports also suggest that the promotional song of Kick would be filmed exclusively on the two actors, and will be released on Eid. Any official word on the matter is yet to be announced. However, this news has added much to the delight of the Salman lovers.

Bollywood’s larger than life Salman Khan was in Mehboob Studio for a song shoot for his upcoming film Kick with Jacqueline Fernandez. Salman Khan has a huge fan following which doesn’t restrict to one age group. He met a very young fan of his outside Mehboob Studio yesterday.

Salman Khan who is going through a tough phase personally because of his hit and run trail case doesn’t seems to be affected by it at all. Sallu bhai was seen sporting a Being Human Tee which he changed later into a formal brown shirt and black trousers. He was happy to meet his young fan.

Salman Khan is busy shooting for an Eid song called ‘Jumme ki raat hai’ from the movie Kick where Jacquelline Fernandes will be seen alongside him. This song is taken on a set which is elaborate in Mehaboob Studios which was composed by Himesh Reshammiya. Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick also features Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The film crew had an extensive shoot in Poland which they finished off recently. Kick is slated to release in July, 2014.

Besides being bold, actor Ranveer Singh and former adult star Sunny Leone have one more thing in common between them. And that is the fact that both of them have endorsed safe sex by doing condom advertisements. However, it seems that Ranveer’s alleged claims that he’s the first actor to have endorsed safe sex and sold a condom seems to have infuriated the Ragini MMS 2 actress.

A DNA report stated that the actress was upset over Singh making such tall claims. Also during recent media interactions, when Ranveer was asked if he had seen Sunny’s condom ad, he refused to have seen her ad.

It seems that the actress is miffed with Ranveer for talking all the credit for shooting a bold advertisement.

The tapestries, the sculptures and the many trophies, all draw the eye, but the truly mesmerising sight in Deepika Padukone’s sprawling 26th floor apartment is the panoramic view of the city and the sea. She admits that it was this field of vision which prompted her move from Bandra to Prabhadevi.

“As a child I came to Mumbai every year, during Christmas and New Year, to visit my maternal grandfather. My parents still do. Mumbai for me was the city by the sea and when I moved here at 18, I told myself that I’d get a home overlooking the sea,” she recalls.

Adjacent to the living room is a terrace where she spends an hour every morning with her coffee and newspapers. “I read, have my breakfast, drink in the view and meditate. I need this `me’ time before the day creeps up on me. No one is to speak to me till I’m dressed,” she says.

This laconic turn also extends to her social media presence where she maintains a quiet front but is still among the most popular Bollywood names on Facebook and Twitter.

“I’m opinionated, but I don’t need to share my opinions with the world. All moments of my life don’t have to be public. My life outside of movies is irrelevant,” she states.

Instead, Deepika would like to be identified as the characters she plays on screen, be it Naina, Meenamma or Leela. In fact, these three back-to-back Rs 100 crore-plus blockbusters–Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela- made, 2013 an unforgettable year for her. Midway through 2014, she insists there’s no pressure on her for an encore. “2013 was the result of two years of hard work, without a break. But I’ve moved on,” she shrugs nonchalantly.

Right now her focus is on two diversely different films-Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes and Farah Khan’s Happy New Year. What they have in common is Deepika’s affinity for their directors. She explains, “The performance in Cocktail wouldn’t have been possible without Homi. And I’d do a film with Farah and Shah Rukh (Khan) without batting an eyelid,” she insists.

2015 will be another big year with three releases-Shoojit Sircar’s Piku co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha with Ranbir Kapoor, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani opposite Ranveer Singh. “I loved Shoojit’s Vickey Donor, Sanjay is a genius and Imtiaz cast me in Love Aaj Kal without seeing Om Shanti Om and he has a way with love stories,” she smiles.

And what about her own love stories? The smile disappears, “Why is it that only actors are asked about their personal lives during interviews? When it’s a sportsperson, a politician or a businessman these questions never crop up. On the sports pages we read about an athlete’s professional highs and lows. The entertainment pages are mostly gossip.”

It’s obvious that the lady is not going to open up about a certain Ranveer Singh. When we wonder at the likelihood of her taking a detour to Barcelona en route to a family vacation in the USA to meet the actor who is currently on a cruise for Dil Dhadakne Do, she sighs, “Barcelona? It’s okay for people to speculate. When there is something, you’ll know.”

Deepika, who wore her heart on her sleeve when she was dating Ranbir Kapoor, has now decided to tuck it away, out of public sight. While on Karan Johar’s chat show she admitted that Ranbir had been her world. “If you’re wondering whether the break-up put me off relationships, the answer is no,” she says.“I’m not cynical about love. The equation with Ranbir is there for all to see in our recent film. There’s nothing more to say.”

Deepika, once the outsider who was not expected to outstay her welcome, is now the numero uno star and also an applauded actress. How does the world look from up there? “When Imtiaz met me recently he told me he did not expect it to happen so fast. Some see it as fast, others see five years.” Where does she see herself five years from now? “Why is it that only women are asked this question. Male actors are allowed to have a career and a life beyond movies. I want that too and I will. Some actresses quit to start a family but I am fortunate that today the shelf life of an actress is longer.” After she chose Bajirao Mastani over Shuddhi, what’s her equation with KJo today? “Sometimes the media puts out stories without knowing the facts and draws conclusions.

But Karan and I know the reality, so there are no issues and that’s why when I bump into him at a restaurant, there is no awkwardness,” she reasons.

During that encounter were they discussing Shuddhi or another film? “Let the producer speak first, it’s his right,” she retorts.

Can’t a Mastani balance a Shuddhi too? “I’d love to do both films. Karan has my number, if he wants me, he’ll call. I can’t talk about a film before the producer has announced it. So it’s only fair that we wait.”

All’s fair in love, war and showbiz. On June 6, R Murgadoss’s Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Holiday clashes at the box-office with Nitin Kakkar’s Filmistaan and the filmmakers of the latter have launched a frontal, no-holds-barred campaign against the former, urging the audience to stay away from Holiday.

The posters carry provocative tag lines like, `Don’t waste your time on a holiday. Watch Filmistaan on 6th June!’ and `A good film is never off-duty.

Watch Filmistaan on 6th June!’ A source close to the development told Mirror, “This is nothing but war, and it has got ugly.” The spokesperson from UTV Spotboy, which has co-produced Filmistaan along with Shringar Films, while admitting that it’s a cheeky campaign, attributes it to the irreverent tone of the film. “We are just having a bit of fun. Filmistaan is a small movie as compared to Holiday. But this is a good time for cinema and now different genres can co-exist and thrive. We hope both films do really well,” he said.

However, the producer of Holiday, Vipul Shah, shrugged off the promotional gimmick saying it makes no difference to him if Filmistaan’s producers want to project their film as bigger and better than his. “Let them do what they wish. I have no problem if they want to use my film’s title in their posters,” he said. “If they want, I can even lend them my film’s logo! Their marketing experts are sensible people who must have devised this strategy after much deliberation.”

Filmistaan, which is Kakkar’s debut film starring Sharib Hashmi, Inaamulhaq, Kumud Mishra and Gopal Dutt explores Indo Pak relations through the shared love that people from both sides of the bor der have for Bollywood. On the other hand, Holiday starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha is Murugadoss’s sec ond Hindi film after Ghajini (2008) and is a remake of his 2012 Tamil superhit Thuppakki.

AkshayProducer-director Vipul Shah, who has teamed up with Akshay Kumar in five films so far, says their previous movie ‘Action Replayy’ failed at the box office because of the actor’s ‘geek look’.

Shah and Akshay have collaborated in films like ‘Waqt’, ‘Aankhein’, ‘Namastey London’, ‘Singh is King’, besides ‘Action Replayy’.

“As a director, I have always tried new things. I have never repeated genre. After ‘Aankhein’, I never did another thriller, never made a family drama or a romantic film after ‘Waqt’ and ‘Namastey London’. Most of the time it has worked for me but not in case of ‘Action Replay’,” Shah said in an interview here.

‘Action Replayy’ released in 2010, which was a time-travel romantic comedy, directed by Vipul Shah had Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles. Both the actors had donned look of the 1970s, the film bombed at the box office.

“People told me the biggest reason (for the film not working) was Akshay’s look. They (audiences) couldn’t digest a good looking man to be shown like this. To a certain extent, I agree to this. The film has not do well in theatres but on satellite, it is Akshay’s highest rated film,” Shah said adding that one needs to learn from mistakes and move on.

Shah and Akshay share a great bond, both at personal and professional.

“We have done six films in last ten years and share a good success ratio. We have been able to challenge each other to give our best as actor and director. As a combination, we have done well,” Shah said.

The 41-year-old director said that Akshay has always challenged him to come with new scripts and genres and that they both understand each other well.
