Bollywood Today – 22nd April 2012

Too busy to keep track of the latest happenings of Bollywood? Worry not, as our section ‘Bollywood Today’ brings to you all the news and gossip that kept the B-town talking over the entire day. So without wasting any time, here we go:

  • How would you feel when your favorite star planted a kiss on your lips? Obviously, you would blush red! Well, that is what happened to a guy at a party thrown by Shahid Kapoor. Shahid’s ‘close friend’ (and rumored to be his new girlfriend) actress Nargis Fakhri kissed a guy on being challenged by the actor himself in the ‘truth and dare’ game which they were playing.
  • Stars rarely have privacy of their personal lives. Some of Katrina Kaif’s rare personal pictures were leaked by an unknown person on an entertainment website. In the photos, she is seen having fun time with her family members.
  • The industry is not short of self-obsessed people! Loud-mouth Kashmera Shah, who will be featuring in an item number soon, compares herself next to dancing diva Helen. Too much to digest!
  • Having started the topic of ‘self-obsessed people’, there is no way we can forget drama queen Rakhi Sawant! The item girl is leaving no stone unturned in preparing herself for the role of Bhanwari Devi. Rakhi is busy researching on the recently-murdered nurse, so that she can portray her well.
  • Salman Khan has given his nod to a ‘Partner’ sequel which David Dhawan had been planning since long. Reportedly, Zarine Khan will star opposite the actor. We will wait and watch!
  • Dehydration took a toll on actor Boman Irani, when he fainted while shooting for Karan Johar’s film ‘Student of the Year’ in Bangkok. The actor will be seen in a special appearance, while his son Kayoze is also starring in the film.
  • ‘The Dirty Picture’ is in trouble again. The Information & Broadcasting Ministry refused the film to be run at a popular GEC on TV, saying it was too bold to be seen on TV. The film makers and actors expressed their disappointment at the news.
  • Kareena Kapoor fans will now see their favorite star in a different kind of role. The actor has been signed to play the character of Queen Arundhati in the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster film ‘Arundhati’.
  • Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has decided to set up a college in Uttar Pradesh and will name it after his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The girls’ college will be set up in Daulatpur, and Bachchan has already given 5 lacs rupees to the local committee.
  • A kick-start party for ‘Shootout at Wadala’ was thrown recently. The Ekta Kapoor film will star Kangna Ranaut, John Abraham, Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Tusshar Kapoor and others. Sonu Sood will play a negative role and John will be seen as a gangster.
  • Much is being said about Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun Kapoor. The most recent gossip about him is his similarity with actor Abhishek Bachchan, in terms of both looks and personality. We hope their career graphs don’t match too!
  • Actor turned producer Zayed Khan is set to start his next home production film. It is said to be an action-comedy flick, and Zayed will audition for the role too! Now that’s what we call sincerity!
  • Rajasmita Kar, winner of Zee TV show ‘Dance India Dance Season 3’, wants to make it big in Bollywood. The girl from Odisha idolizes Sridevi and wants to teach dance to young children. Way to go Miss Kar!
  • Filmmaker Chinmoy Sarmah (you have seen him acting in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’) is now making a film titled ‘Shillong’. Most of the scenes have been shot in the Meghalaya capital, and the film is scheduled to release in June.
