Bappi send legal notice to Toonpur Ka Superrhero Producer

Music composer Bappi Lahiri has sent a legal notice to producers of an Ajay Devgn-Kajol starrer on December 17, for spoofing him in the forthcoming animation film. “Bappi stated in the notice that he checked the website (of the film) after his daughter’s friend informed him of a character ‘Guppy’ based on him in the film. He took the step to send a legal notice on realising that the character of ‘Guppy’ mimics him completely,” says a source. ‘Guppy’is described as a ‘cacophonic singer in the group (who) has a compulsive urge to sing which gets the group into trouble frequently. The Devtoons...are fed up of his singing.’
The musician as well as the spokespersons for the film confirmed the legal notice. While Bappi is adamant that the character be changed, Ajay Devgn and the producers of the film have apparently called for an emergency meeting to sort out the issue.“The producers will get in touch with him (Bappi) to help him understand a few points. The film is complete, and it’s difficult to make changes at this point, especially when the character is an intrinsic part of the film. The producers have tremendous regard for Bappida and would never show him in a poor light,” added the source.

Bigg Boss is scripted- Manoj Tiwari

Manoj Tiwari who recently got eliminated from 'Bigg Boss 4' is not yet prepared to face the real world. The world of Bigg Boss is far beyond all the realities in the real world. Manoj who first blamed Shweta Tiwari and later Seema Parihaar for his elimination, now considers host Salman Khan and his brother Arbaaz Khan equally responsible for his way out from the Bigg Boss house. Reports in the media suggests that when Manoj came out of 'Bigg Boss 4' he learnt that the Dabangg producer has been campaigning for Ashmit Patel on the micro-blogging site Twitter. He added that he got to know that the last time he got nominated he was saved by 70,000 votes, while others got only 5,000. He said that his popularity can't come down over a night. He even added that he is quiet sure of the show being scripted.

Cricketer Sambaran Banerjee to act in Bengali film

Former Indian cricket selector and Bengal's Ranji Trophy winning skipper Sambaran Banerjee has started a new innings and is playing the role of a cricket coach in a yet to be named Bengali film. Banerjee's acting debut would see him share screen space with national award winning actor Prasenjit Chatterjee. "It is a new experience, a bit like out of syllabus. But since I am related to the cricket field, I don't think it will be very tough for me to do this role. I was quite comfortable in front of the camera on the day of the film's launch," Banerjee told IANS.
The rest of the shooting of the film, directed by Haranath Chakroborty, would be done from the second week of December. Banerjee, however, said cricket is his first love and would remain so. "While doing this role, both Chakroborty and Chatterjee have been very cooperative. It was not very difficult for me to understand my role," said Bengal's Ranji team captain.

Navjot Singh Sidhu denies Jhalak Dhiklaa Jaa 4

Former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was earlier supposed to participate in ‘Jhalak Dhiklaa Jaa Season 4’, has decided to quit the show. Now, everyone is wondering why the cricketer turned politician made this last moment decision when the show is going to star on December 12. Is it any urgent work or the fear of celebrity judges that is keeping the funny man away from the dancing stage? Well, the reason is something different. Sidhu is leaving the show because of the participation of veteran actor Shekhar Suman with whom he had a fallout when both of them were judging a laughter show. As per the sources, Sidhu was unaware of Shekhar’s participation until they started shooting recently. So, as soon as he came to know about it, Sidhu decided to walk out of the show to avoid any further face off.

Its now Salman khan Vs Sanjay leela bhansali

Last week, when curtains were totally down for Guzaarish, Salman Khan reportedly took a dig at the film as well as its maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Of course, there has been clarification in this regard coming both from him as well as the news channel on which the comments were made, what with the video of the event clearly establishing that Salman was primarily hitting upon the genre of such films (which are message based) rather than Guzaarish in particular. Nevertheless, the fact remains that there has been uproar ever since the news piece broke out. Some believed it on the face value and threw brickbats at Salman for 'supposedly' making such comments. Others felt that he was just being himself and it was something that can anyway be expected from Salman. In this week's 'Reflections', let's extend the debate further on.
What Salman said: It became the news of the week when Salman stated - 'Film ko ek kutta bhi dekhne nahi gaya'. He started off with a reference to Guzaarish, had a momentary 'Oops, sorry' moment and then quickly moved on to comment on genre of issue based films while referring to his very own Phir Milenge, which was based on AIDS awareness but was a colossal flop at the box office.

Besides Irrfan, the film will also feature yet another villain Dr. Connors aka The Lizard played by Rhys Ifans. The new Spiderman film is being directed by Mark Webber and is expected to hit screens in 2012.

Manish Acharya passes away

Filmmaker and actor Manish Acharya died in a freak accident in Matheran on Saturday. He was only 40 years old. Aseem Chhabra salutes a friend and colleague. On Saturday night, my cell phone rang at 3 am. I answered it, waking up in a haze. I had just returned from a trip to India, and I felt confused and dislocated. It was my friend (filmmaker) Dev Benegal calling from Mumbai. He had some sad news to share. Our filmmaker friend Manish Acharya had fallen off a horse in Matheran (a popular hill station near Mumbai) and died as a result of brain haemorrhage.
Tough news to handle and hard to believe this could have happened. Manish was always so full of life, confidence. He was stocky, big built. How could he have fallen off a horse and injured himself so seriously? Just two days earlier, we were chatting on Twitter. Manish was all praise for French filmmaker Gasper Noe's devastatingly disturbing new film Enter The Void. He had seen the film in New York and, according to his tweet: 'The faces of the audience after were worth the price of admission.'

Don't compromise in love... you are always qualified to get better choices," she wrote on the social networking site.
However, Koirala's mother Sushma claimed that the media unnecessarily blowed the minor squabble between a husband and a wife out of proportion which she think is normal.According to a news report published in Saptahik, a Nepali weekly, Koirala remained most of the time afterthe marriagein her maternal home at Maharajgunj in the outskirts of the Kathmandu rather than her husband's house at Budhanilkantha in the Northern part of the capital.

'A' certificate for Movie 'No One Killed Jessica'

Rani Mukherjee might be having high expectations from her forthcoming release 'No One Killed Jessica', but surprisingly, the actress recently revealed that she would be happy if her film gets an 'A' certificate. Rani is aware that the content of the film is not appropriate for children and palpably does not want kids to come and watch the film with their parents. “I'll be more than happy with an 'A' certificate for the film. In fact, I want that because we don't want children to come and see this film. I think it won't be okay for children to come and see this film so it will be okay if they give it an 'A' certificate,” stated the actress.

Yana Gupta sued for controversial pantyless stunt

Model-turned-actress Yana Gupta is in the news again for all the wrong reasons. She hit the headlines last week for attending an international children's charity event without underwear.

The Magistrate has now summoned them for hearing December 6.
The ‘Babuji Zara Dheere Chalo’ hottie was spotted at a charity function, organized by Childreach International, sans her panty. Later, the actress detailed the incident in her Twitter account by tweeting, “For past three weeks I have been rehearsing for a particular dance television show. While doing all the splits and various crazy dance moves, I kept getting irritated by my panties getting stuck in my ass. So I thought I'll sort out the issue by simply not wearing undies as I wear pants for rehearsal.” Interestingly, she even added that now she should endorse some underwear brand. “Yes I openly admit...I did forget something 'slightly' essential to pack. I just pulled my dress down every few steps, but it didn't help! I had no clue it could be seen. I had no clue till I saw the pictures today, now should I cry over this?” said Yana.

Veena Malik heaved a sigh of relief and hugged “Ash-mit”, when host Salman Khan revealed that Manoj Tiwari had been eliminated.

Rakht Charitra 2 Movie Review: This is perhaps the first time in Bollywood that a single story is broken into two parts (RAKHT CHARITRA and RAKHT CHARITRA 2) by the same director. And both parts have released in quick succession, which is a laudable effort indeed. Ram Gopal Varma's PHOONK 2, which was a sequel in true sense, carried the same story of PHOONK ahead, but there was a decent gap between the two films. On the other hand, GOLMAAL, DHOOM and MUNNABHAI series had completely different stories and there was a sufficient gap between two parts. Barring the main characters, there wasn't anything similar between the installments.
Ram Gopal Varma continues the revenge saga in RAKHT CHARITRA 2 that he started in RAKHT CHARITRA. In case you missed the first part, fret not. RAKHT CHARITRA 2 starts off with approximately 25 minutes footage from the first part.

salman khan in tees maar khan item song

Salman Khan does a cameo in Katrina Kaif starrer Tees Maar Khan .Salman Shakes a leg with Akshay and Katrina despite the news of his break up with Katrina Kaif.
So, does this mean one should put an end to all those rumors or apna Sallubhai is so magnanimous that he did that cameo despite the break up. We don't know that as yet, but what we do know that salman looks quite happy performing that song and doesn't leave any chance to get cozy with his so called ex-girlfriend Katrina.
