Every day there’s so much happening in B-town that it is difficult to keep up pace with it. ‘Bollywood Today’ is the answer to your daily dose of hot and spicy Bollywood news doing the rounds. The updates for today are:

  • Ram Gopal Verma seems obsessed with his new search- the hot and sexy model Nathalia Kaur. Because of the immense popularity her item number has brought to his upcoming film ‘Department’, Ramu gifted her the expensive silver costume which she has worn in the song ‘Dan Dan’.
  • Beauty queen Niharika Singh is on a high. The former Miss India Earth 2005 will walk the prestigious red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this year, as her film ‘Miss Lovely’ will be screened at the festival.
  • Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt recently said in an interview that he has invested a lot in actor Emraan Hashmi. Because of the talent he possesses, he has been a regular favorite in the Bhatt movies. The ‘return on investment’ that Emraan has given the Bhatts is sure worth it! We agree!
  • Katrina Kaif has a brother in the industry! Actor Arjun Kapoor, who will soon be debuting with ‘Ishaqzaade’, is Katrina’s “Rakhi” brother as she ties Rakhi on his hand every year. They were introduced to each other by Salman Khan and since then the two share a brother-sister bonding.

  • Audiences have long been waiting to see father-son duo Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir together on screen. This may finally come true, as filmmaker Abhinav Kashyap is planning to cast them together in his next flick.
  • Actor, singer and filmmaker Farhan Akhtar is planning to take the plunge into television. Along with producer Ritesh Sidhwani, he is devising a new game show on TV, something which might not have been tried before.
  • Aamir Khan’s debut show on TV, which will soon go on air, is expected to notch high TRPs. So to divert the viewership, rival channels have been approaching Salman Khan to host a show. But Salman has declined the offers despite the amount he is being offered. What a friendship we admit!
  • During the shooting of ‘Rowdy Rathore’, Akshay Kumar insisted that he do the action scenes all by himself. Worried about the actor’s life while doing the dangerous stunts, the unit decided to insure him at a hefty sum of Rs. 50 crores! Whoa!
  • Poonam Pandey recently posted another raunchy picture of her on a social networking site. Posing in a black bikini, Poonam aimed at consoling the disappointed people after the broadcasting of ‘The Dirty Picture’ was stopped.
  • The remake of yesteryear’s classic film ‘Zanjeer’ is in news ever since the project was declared. Javed Akhtar, writer of the original film, hopes that the issues regarding copyright are solved amicably.
  • Mika has a new fan. Amitabh Bachchan, for whom the singer has sung a song in ‘Department’, is highly impressed with him and wishes him good luck. The actor said that Mika has a ‘unique voice’. We couldn’t agree more!
  • Cat-fights are not new in the industry. Actress Sameera Reddy was reportedly having a tiff with fellow actor Kangna Ranaut on the sets of ‘Tezz’. But the former has denied such claims, although she admits that ‘no two actresses can be best friends.’
  • Filmmaker Sajid Khan is on a high as his film ‘Housefull 2’ is touching the 100-crore mark. Although his films are not appreciated by critics, he feels that cinema is meant for entertainment and not enlightenment. If only his films made some sense!!
