Ash sizzles, Bachchans fuming? November 26, 2006

Filed under: Aishwarya Rai,Gossip — Ravi @ 12:50 pm


An onscreen kiss has sent Bollywood’s hottest romance tumbling into rough weather. The year-long Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai relationship recently hit turbulence when the Bachchans were invited to Yashraj Studio for an exclusive preview of Dhoom2 . Aishwarya too had flown down from Jaipur where she is shooting for Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Akbar-Jodha with Hrithik.

Sources said Aishwarya’s liplock with Hrithik in the film didn’t go down well with the Bachchans. And the entire family of actors was not appreciative of Ash’s acting prowess in the said scene. Until now Aishwarya, despite offers from Hollywood, had steadfastly maintained a no-kissing policy.

A close family friend confirms that though he was aware there were some passionate scenes between Hrithik and Ash, Abhishek was “very, very upset” on seeing the finished product. The full impact hit him only when he saw it on screen, says the friend, and he made his objection clear to Aishwarya.

Over the week, instead of celebrating the release of yet another film featuring them together, Aishwarya and Abhishek have been confronting uncomfortable questions that the kiss has thrown up in their relationship. Sources said her skimpy costumes too have not gone down well with the first family of Bollywood. “They are wondering where was the need for Aishwarya to change her demure image at this stage and agree to a full-blown kiss on film,” said the friend.

While Ash is maintaining a studied silence on the controversy, she reportedly attended the birthday party of the children of Abhishek’s sister, Shveta Nanda at her residence in Delhi, and was said to have behaved as if nothing was amiss. When asked about the kissing scene, Ash’s co-star and Abhishek’s childhood buddy Hrithik simply laughed it off and refused to comment. Obviously, Abhishek fails to find the humour in it.


Bipasha definitely looks hotter than Aishwarya

Filed under: Bipasha Basu — Ravi @ 12:50 pm

Aishwarya Rai Aishwarya Rai may have a very beautiful face, but she can’t beat Bipasha Basu in sex appeal.

Being sexy is not just about wearing skimpy outfits or giving ‘I am wild’ look to the camera. It is more about attitude and how one carries oneself in revealing clothes.

Sanjay Gadhvi’s movie Dhoom 2 pits gorgeous Ash against sultry Bipasha in what is seen by many as the battle for looking sexier. Sorry to say that Ash comes nowhere near Bipasha in looking hot.

In her introductory scene in the film, Ash is shown completely dressed in black outfit (of a thief) and wearing a mask. A few minutes later, she takes off her dress in front of the hero ( Hrithik Roshan ) and stands in a tiny top and shorts.

The posture she strikes is supposed to be sexy, but is far from it. What you see is Ash standing with her arms slightly akimbo, her pelvis stiff and her bust ostentatiously protruding to the thief in front of her. Now, that is supposed to be "sex appeal" for you.

Bipasha, on the other hand, raises your hair (and perhaps more) in her very first scene when she is shooting at a target while dressed in a tight white T-shirt and jeans. The camera catches the angle of her bust from sideways, highlighting to the maximum Bipasha’s anatomical assets.

That’s not it. After every few reels, Bipasha is shown in one revealing outfit after another, making sure that the oomph quotient doesn’t drip in the film. The temperature rises further in the second half, when Bipasha is shown as a Brazilian, mostly dressed in bikinis.

Ash, on the other hand, exudes nothing but fatigue. Ironically, she looks the most appealing in a blue, dinner dress that covers her completely from her neck to her knees. She is unable to carry herself naturally in other skimpy dresses like a black catsuit, a golden dress and a two-piece outfit in the final song.

In this battle of sex appeal, Bipasha is undoubtedly the winner.



Dhoom:2 Back in Action November 24, 2006

Filed under: Gossip — Ravi @ 4:55 pm

/photo.cms?msid=550685 A tanned Hrithik Roshan, Ash in her most glamorous makeover so far along with country’s most eligible bachelor – Abhishek Bachchan and the dusky beauty Bipasha Basu make a casting coup of sorts for this trendsetter flick.

The theatre next to you is all set to sizzle with the multi-starrer sequel to Dhoom that sent the cash registers ringing in 2004.

Although, John Abraham is missing from the action but Hrithik and Ash make sure that there’s no dearth of oomph or style.

Star pressure?

/photo.cms?msid=550687 While there has been some change in the star cast, Dhoom:2 retains Sanjay Gadhvi as the director. But the question with such an increased star power is – does the director feel pressurised?

“This is the first time I was dealing with the superstars – Hrithik Roshan & Aishwarya Rai. So the pressure was something that I was always aware of,” admits Gadhvi.

“I worked towards it and I made the pressure work for me because I am quiet happy with the results,” adds Gadhvi rather nonchalantly.

What’s Dhoom:2 all about?

Shot in as many as five exotic locales, Yashraj films’ Dhoom:2 is yet another chapter in the lives of cop Abhishek Bachchan and his sidekick Uday Chopra with Hrithik making AB baby chase after him – much like he chased John in the original Dhoom.

Dare-devil stunts

/photo.cms?msid=550689 Dhoom:2 has Hrithik flying down with a parachute and landing on a moving train. Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik free-falling into a gorge from a height of 500 metres. Bipasha Basu hanging on a steep wall 100 feet high. Abhishek Bachchan riding a jet-ski on a rough sea. Uday Chopra driving a bike at great speed inside a tunnel.

And these are just a few vignettes, but the stars sure had the time of their life working hard and enjoying at the same time.

“We all have worked very hard on Dhoom:2. We work very well as a team, I thoroughly enjoyed working in Dhoom,” says Aishwarya Rai.

Ash vs Bips

/photo.cms?msid=550690 Ash sure had to work twice as hard for she is up against yet another oomph queen Bipasha Basu.

Dhoom:2 is sure to garner a great opening – what with such a power packed star cast. And going by how audiences lapped up Dhoom original, the formula for success is still intact.

As for the box office verdict, you won’t have to wait for long.


“Aapke Dil Mein Thodisi Jagah Chahiye”

Filed under: Sanjay Dutt — Ravi @ 4:45 pm

"Aapke Dil Mein Thodisi Jagah Chahiye" – this is what Sanjay Dutt is crooning for his lady love! The only trouble is that the lady in question is not willing to bow down to his demands!

We are talking about the latest song that Sanjay Dutt has sung which is titled "Aapke Dil Mein Thodisi Jagah Chahiye". This forms a part of the album titled ‘Asha and Friends – Vol 1’ where legendary singer Ashaji has friends like Sanjay Dutt and Brett Lee exercising their vocals chords in a duet with her.

The album has just recently arrived on the stands and for its promotion, a music video featuring Ashaji and Sanjay Dutt has also been shot and premiered on air.

What is notable about the video is that it is natural to the core with real footage shot from the recording of the song. Further impressive is the child like obedience that Sanju baba shows to Ashaji as he learns some finer nuances from her while singing along.


Smile along with ‘Kabul Fiza’

Filed under: Gossip — Ravi @ 4:44 pm

Yash Raj Films have done it again.
Ensuring that they have at least one promotional music video for each of their films, this time around they have unleashed a brand new song titled ‘Kabul Fiza’ which is being used for the promotion of their upcoming release ‘Kabul Express’.
Composed and sung by Raghav Sachar with Aditya Dhar writing the lyrics, ‘Kabul Fiza’ is a racy track with superb arrangements which can currently be seen playing all over on the music channels. The music video features the lead protagonists of the film, John Abraham and Arshad Warsi, lip synching to this rocking track that features in a set resembling the Afghanistan terrain. Hanging bulbs on the frame only help giving the track further authenticity.
Also notable is that fact that both John and Arshad are shown in a chirpy mood with a smile on their faces as they happily sing and dance to the song in the most natural manner!


Hema-Amitabh star in Hollywood remake

Filed under: Amitabh Bachchan — Ravi @ 4:43 pm
The director of film ‘Baghban’, Ravi Chopra, after making another family drama ‘Babul’ – is now treading unfamiliar territory. It seems he is all set to start his version of the Hollywood classic romance "The Bridges of Madison County". The original film was adapted from the novel by Robert James Waller and starred Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep in the lead roles.

Meryl Streep as Francesca Johnson, and Clint Eastwood as her lover Robert Kincaid in ‘The Bridges of Madison County (1995)
In the film, photographer Robert Kincaid wanders into the life of housewife Francesca Johnson, for four days in the 1960s. They fall in love, but she’s married with children. The story is a touching account of two mature adults finding true love, but outside the confines of a marriage.

Interestingly, the Indian remake will star none other than Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini.

“He (Chopra) may be making the film very soon after ‘Babul’,” said Hema Malini, and added that she and Bachchan would be in the film.

While the pairing of the two actors on screen has worked well with audiences so far, Hema Malini says she is quite open to doing films with any other actor of her generation playing opposite her, as long as he is physically fit enough.

“It depends on how they look. If they are in a condition to work, I am ready to work them. It is very important for one to be presentable if you want to act in films at an advanced age,” she said.

While it would no doubt be engaging to see Hema clandestinely romance Bachchan in the film, the question is whether the Indian audiences would accept them both outside the backdrop of a family drama.
