aishIndian actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai has lauded the organisers of the international beauty pageant for removing the swimsuit round from their competition. She says when she won the crown in 1994, she herself didn’t have the “fittest beach body”.

In December 2014, Julia Morley, chairwoman of the Miss World contest, announced their decision about the exclusion of the bikini round, saying that “it doesn’t do anything for the woman. And it doesn’t do anything for any of us”.
Aishwarya has said she was “very happy” to know of the development.

Aishwarya Rai happy at dropping the bikini round at Miss World pageant, says it is not a deciding factor to win the crown.

“When I became Miss Word, I was definitely not the best beach body of all the 87 contestants. I can vouch for it…I can put a stamp on it. And yet I won the title,” said Aishwarya, who was recently felicitated for being the most successful Miss World ever.

“People believe that this (swimwear round) is an imperative round and this becomes the deciding factor. That’s not true,” she added.

The actress also remembers having been told that “getting the ‘Miss Perfect 10? title was not only about literally your physicality, it was all about how you presented yourself, your confidence and so much else that went with it,” she said.

On the film front, Aishwarya is making her comeback to the big screen after almost five years with Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Jazbaa’.

Chit Chat | January 2, 2015 at 1:00 pm

saif-ali-khan_1Saif Ali Khan is presently reading the essay On The Shortness Of Life from Moses Hadas’ The Stoic Philosophy Of Seneca. No wonder he’s celebrating his perfect life’ to the hilt. Apart from being grateful for a gorgeous wife and family, he’s even restored bridges that were once wrecked. Today, he enjoys an easy equation with ex-wife Amrita Singh – children Sara and Ibrahim being their mutual concern. He’s reworked the dynamics of his alleged acrimony with partner Dinesh Vijan only to re-emerge as a producer. What’s more, he’s even made up with dear friend Sajid Khan post Humshakals. And all this he’s achieved with utmost earnestness. As Saif lets you into the truth behind the conjectures, the room is filled with a carefree vibe. Dressed in a crisp white shirt over well-fitted black pants, he looks every bit the royal he is. It wouldn’t be wrong to call him a conversational guru coz heck, he takes on every contention … and answers without pretence. He comes clean on all… frailties, his foibles and even his insensitivity at times… Excerpts:

Most believe that you have it all – a royal lineage and a glamorous life as an actor…(Smiles) It is a perfect life ya. They are right. I’ve nothing to complain about, really. I have a cellar stocked with good wine. A lovely lady at home (Kareena Kapoor Khan). I love my mother (Sharmila Tagore), my sisters (Soha and Saba Ali Khan) and my wonderful children (Sara and Ibrahim). Now even my ex-wife (Amrita Singh) and I are getting along. We are discussing our children’s future.

But you always got along with her, no?Ah… well, at this moment everything is in place.

Was it not in place earlier?There’ve been times when certain elements were not in place. But at this point, everything is just right.

Anything you ever get insecure about?Sometimes I worry about not achieving what I have to. A lot of people are dependent on me today. I’m alright as long as I keep working. But it would be nice to have a fixed income, which is not dependent on the movies.

But you are producing too…Still… I think of myself as an actor. I haven’t made any money producing films. (Laughs) I have made exactly ’20 from producing films.

Is that the reason you split with long time partner, Dinesh Vijan?(Laughs) It sounds like a good reason, no? But we haven’t split. Illuminati Films is a production company I formed to make movies for myself. Somewhere Dinesh has to grow and make films for himself as well. I don’t necessarily want to produce films with other people. So he must do it on his own. I also work for other production houses. He can’t sit around waiting for me to be free and then begin work on something.

So everything was amicably settled between you two then?There was a rough patch in the middle because I’d walk into my office and catch another actor sitting in my cabin. I didn’t know what he was doing there. Apparently, he was working in my production. That led to friction. But we’ve sorted it out. We have Illuminati together and he has his own company to do everything else he wants to do.

Of late, you’ve not had a great run at the movies…When you’re doing well, you get offered different kinds of movies. You believe you’ll be able to do them… Maybe you can’t…

But you’ve never been one to follow the flock.Yes. But when you get offered different stuff, you believe it will be nice to work with different directors. The most epic and most painful flop would be something you believed in.

Is it safe to say Humshakals wasn’t something you believed in?
I didn’t. Now I don’t want to upset Sajid Khan again, who I am fond of.

You patched up with him recently.In a rather public and ridiculous fashion. He was upset with me.

That interview you gave post the film’s release was public too…Yeah, now I don’t want to reverse all the good I’ve done. Usually, I do mean what I say when I say it. I felt the way at that time. I hugged him now because I love him. Our relationship is beyond the movies. I missed him in my life immensely.

Did he feel bad about that interview?Yes, he did. Because he takes these things to heart. There’s a difference in the way we both saw that situation. Perhaps it was a bit insensitive…

But you don’t regret it?No. I felt like that at the time. If it came across like I was abandoning the film, it wasn’t what I meant. All I meant was that in retrospect, we should have done something better and it was a bit of a mistake’ doing this film in this particular way. You know, some actor even told him if I felt that way about the film, I shouldn’t have promoted it. But that’s even more criminal. You have to promote your movie. People talk s*** . Who cares! No one likes anyone in the industry. I actually do like Sajid.

So will you work with him again?This time, I will have to love the script. Last time it was on his conviction. This time, it will be mine.

People said they were disappointed that you did such a film…Sometimes you just back a director’s conviction and go with it. The honest truth is that Sajid meant to entertain. He didn’t mean to insult people. He got flak for it. Poor guy. Maybe he rubs people the wrong way… Plus, once so much negativity is out there, it snowballs into something huge. (Laughs) People look at you like you don’t know a film from a hole in the wall. You get lectures on how to choose your films even from the staff in your office.

Romcoms are your niche. You agree?Yeah. I like the conversational style of acting. So I can offer it as competition to others and say, This is what I do best’. I have a certain spirit and energy, which if used well on screen, can be unique.

Being the romcom king, has your definition of love changed over the years?(Pauses) Now I know that love is verb. It has to be practised. It’s not just a word. You are your actions.

Recently, your love jihad letter in a publication won you raves…Well, for some, I’m suddenly the expert on love jihad. Though most liked it, this one guy, wrote a letter saying that I’d missed crucial points in my essay. Like the fact that my mother married my father (the late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan) and converted to his religion and that she deserved credit for that. This is true. I wrote just one point of view. That’s why I love the Internet. There’s give and take. You can learn so much.

One lesson you’ve learnt…That a situation can be fixed if you try. And that people are forgiving.

ranbir_katrinaBesides organizing a surprise birthday party for his alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor, Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif made the day even more special for Ranbir by gifting him a swanky Rolex worth Rs. 1 crore. And that’s not all. The lady also gifted the Kapoor lad a scuba diving gear as he grew a year older.

Sources say that Katrina left no stone unturned to make Ranbir’s birthday a memorable one.

Ranbir and Katrina have always grabbed eyeballs for sharing great camaraderie off screen. Though they have always remained tight lipped about their relationship, the two have always given enough fodder for the media to speculate about their affair. Be it their secret vacations, family dinners, or getting clicked outside each other’s homes in the wee hours, there have been enough reasons for us to wonder if the two stars are beyond just ‘good friends’.

And now with Kat being so generous with Ranbir’s birthday gift, we hope they don’t mind if our tongues start wagging again!

Bollywood Buzz, Happy New Year | August 16, 2014 at 10:15 am

abhishiek_srkShah Rukh Khan whose Happy New Year trailer has become the talking point among the junta and media, ever since it was launched yesterday, said his male co-stars in the film — Abhishek Bachchan, Vivaan Shah, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani — were all as different from one another as chalk and cheese. Even their work attitudes differed.

According to him, Boman was the cool one while Sonu was hardworking. As for the two star sons – Abhishek and Vivaan, SRK joked on how both the boys seemed distracted sometimes. “I thought I would sit them down and have a chat with them about getting serious,” said the Bollywood superstar.

“However, when I realised that both were sons of legends (Abhishek being Amitabh Bachchan’s son and Vivaan, Naseeruddin Shah’s son), meri bolti bandh ho gayi. Honestly, I could hardly lecture the sons of legends!” he jested. However, SRK is sure that if he makes a sequel to HNY, he will cast Abhishek and Vivaan in it.

Aamir-naked-PKThe Supreme Court Thursday junked a petition seeking a stay on the screening of Aamir Khan starrer ‘pk’ for alleged obscene scenes and scenes with a potential to stir ill-will among people practising different faiths.

While throwing out the plea, the apex court said that the facets of religion should not be brought into art and entertainment.

“This is art and entertainment. Don’t bring religious facets in it. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. Let others watch,” said an apex court bench of Chief Justice R.M. Lodha, Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Rohinton Fali Narimam as the counsel for NGO All India Human Rights & Social Justice sought a ban on its screening in India and abroad.

The NGO had objected to two scenes relating to alleged semi-nude appearance of Aamir Khan, and a rickshaw puller, appearing like Lord Shiva, pulling a cycle rickshaw in which two burqa clad woman are seated.

The PIL said that “this is hurting religious sentiments of followers of Lord Shiva and it is a criminal offence punishable under Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code (deliberate effort to outrage religious feelings).”

It contended that “the scene shall probably create a communal tension among the two major communities. It is surprising that the film censor board has permitted its exhibition in cinema halls likely next Tuesday.”

Asking the counsel Nafis Ahmad Siddiqui if the film has been through the Censor Board, Chief Justice Lodha said, “Others have a right to watch the movie. How is your legal and constitutional right affected.”

“India is a mature society. They know the difference between entertainment and other things,” Chief Justice Lodha said as counsel told the court that there was anguish throughout the country and it (the film) was spoiling youth.
To this, Chief Justice Lodha said, “It is an age of Internet. What will you hide? Youth are very smart these days.”
Taking a dig at the counsel pointing to generation gap, court asked him, “Why you are talking about your youth and mine. It is 50 year old.”

Model-cum-actress Sushmita Sen was in for a rude shock when the false ceiling of her house in Juhu, Mumbai, caved in on Tuesday. Luckily no one was hurt in the accident.

Speaking to Mid-Day, a source said that Sushmita has been living in that apartment for quite some time. However, a lump of the ceiling fell down on the floor with a bang. Though the actress and her kids were present in the house during the incident, no one was injured.

The actress, who has just recently returned from Mauritius, is very shaken about the incident. The apartment was well-maintained and hence the accident has shocked the actress.

The authorities at Lawrence School in Lovedale, Ooty, were thrilled when they found out that Amitabh Bachchan was shooting there with Dhanush for R Balki’s upcoming flick.

They promptly invited him for their Founder’s Day celebrations, which the Big B accepted. But when he found out that 3,000 people would be in attendance, he decided to go in the evening instead, when the crowd would thin out.
However, as soon as he started out, the hotel management tipped off the school, and the guests regrouped for that one chance to meet the star. Such was the excitement that no one remembered to click a picture with him. Not even that obligatory selfie!
