Katrina is the sexiest woman in the world


t’s official! Fans from across the globe have voted to make Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif the sexiest woman in the world. The heroine, who made her debut with Kaizad Gustad’s Boom in 2003, was bestowed the honor for the fourth time by the Indian edition of FHM magazine. She beat the likes of her contemporaries Freida Pinto, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone and international celebrities like Megan Fox and Scarlett Johansson. While Katrina retains her supremacy, the Bachchan bahu, Aishwarya Rai, has reportedly failed to make it even to the top ten in the list. Katrina, who set the silver screen ablaze with her ‘Chikni Chameli’ item number recently, is currently doing films with the three big Khans of Bollywood - Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir. The 27-year-old actress’ future releases suggest that it’s unlikely anyone will displace her from the top of the sexiest list any time soon.

why the Bachchan’s are so protective about the little one! Ever since Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan’s daughter came into this world, everyone has been eagerly waiting to have a glimpse of her. However, Ash, Abhi and even the grandparents, Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan, have always concealed the little one from the media. Abhishek explains why: “I am not comfortable with that, I don’t need to show her off. She is not an item that she has to be put up on display. She is a child, and Aishwarya and I would like her to grow up as normal as possible. I do understand that her parents and grandparents are public figures but she is not yet and let her enjoy that. I have grown up in this industry and have been in this position so I understand the curiosity,” Abhishek Bachchan told reporters. Meanwhile grandpa Amitabh Bachchan is enjoying every second of his life with the little one. “Never realized playing with the ‘little one’ for just a few minutes could be equivalent to an entire two hour workout in the gym!” Big B recently wrote on his blog.

It is heard that Kareena Kapoor after marriage with Saif Ali Khan on October 16, will retain her surname. Kareena will soon become the begum of Pataudi. However, the actress is not willing to leave behind her identity. She will also have a Hindu wedding and will remain a Hindu even post marriage.

Half the year has gone by, and it’s time to look at how the Hindi film industry fared at the box office. Here are the the top ten hits in the last six months, listed according to their release dates.

Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra Director: Karan Malhotra Release date: January 26 Box office collections (approx): Rs 150 crores. There was a lot of hype and expectation attached to Karan Johar’s production, Agneepath. After all, people wanted to see whether Amitabh Bachchan’s cult film had been remade well.

Cast: Irrfan, Mahie Gill Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia Release date: March 2 Box office collections (approx): Rs 30 crores. Even though the film was a biopic, it did not look like a documentary. The film told the unique story of a military man with a sports background who becomes a dacoit. Irrfan Khan’s brilliant performance increased the film’s chances because of word-ofmouth publicity.


Cast: Vidya Balan, Parambrata Chatterjee, Saswata Chatterjee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui Director:  Sujoy Ghosh Release date: March 9 Box office collections (approx): Rs 104 crores. At first glance, Kahaani looked like a womanoriented suspense drama. But when people watched the film, they were surprised to see a patriotic angle to it. The climax certainly was not predictable. Fresh out of her National Awardwinning film The Dirty Picture, Vidya Balan’s performance in Kahaani was very good, enhanced by Sujoy Ghosh’s able direction.

August 2012 |

A big star cast further helped the film’s prospects at the box office. Strong performances -- especially Rishi Kapoor’s brilliance -- made the film a winner. Besides that, the film was projected as one for the masses and not just for multiplex audiences.

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Zarine Khan, Shreyas Talpade, Shazahn Padamsee, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Randhir Kapoor, Boman Irani Director: Sajid Khan Release date: April 5 Box office collections (approx): Rs 114 crores. Since Houseful had done well, audiences expected its sequel to do well too. Fun dialogues, good humor and a big star cast ensured the film was a winner.

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Yami Gautam, Annu Kapoor, Kamlesh Gill, Dolly Allhuwalia Director: Shoojit Sircar Release date: April 20 Box office collections (approx): Rs 40 crores. The film had a novel theme of sperm donation, told in an entertaining way. With such a story, the film could have been vulgar with crass jokes and double meaning dialogues but it was handled adeptly by director Shoojit Sircar, so family audiences thronged to the theatres to watch it.

Cast: Paoli Dam, Gulshan Devaiya, Nikhil Dwivedi Director: Vivek Agnihotri Release date: April 20 Box office collections (approx): Rs 17 crores.

Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, Gauhar Khan Director: Habib Faisal Release date: May 11 Box office collections (approx): Rs 46 crores. There was quite a bit of curiosity for Arjun Kapoor, who made his debut with Ishaqzaade. But it was Parineeti’s performance that won them over. After a long time, a violent love story made its way to theatres, and people lapped it up. It also had good music to its credit.

People were curious to watch the film because of its titillating trailer and actress Paoli Dam’s sex appeal. But when they watched the film, they realized the film was more than just a skin flick. It was written and directed well. Plus, it’s quite rare to see an unapologetic woman in a Hindi movie.

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha Director: Prabhu Deva Release date: June 1 Box office collections (approx): Over Rs 128 crores. After Wanted, Dabangg and Singham, yet another film was aimed at the masses. Akshay Kumar and director Prabhu Deva added to its appeal. Besides, south remakes have been doing really well these days because they’re in the 1980s mould of action, humor and entertainment.

Cast:Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Asin, Prachi Desai, Krishna Abhishek Director: Rohit Shetty Release date: July 6 Box office collections (approx): Over Rs 100 crores Riding high on the victory of four uninterrupted hits of his zany/madcap entertainers (Golmaal Returns, All the Best, Golmaal 3 and Singham), Rohit Shetty’s latest outing doesn’t fall into predictability thanks to a well interconnected screenplay. Bol Bachchan turned out to be a dhamaal entertainer that has the Rohit Shetty stamp all over it. Big stars, big visuals, big entertainment, Bol Bachchan has it all.

kshay Kumar has appeared in so many comedies, one would be excused for thinking that the title of Joker is a reference to his character. But that assumption would be wrong. The town of Paglapur fell through the cracks when maps were being drawn and was not included as part of India or Pakistan. As leading lady Sonakshi Sinha explains it, “Joker refers to a place that does not exist on the global map. Just like the joker in a pack of cards that does not belong in any colour.” Akshay plays a NASA scientist who has been trying to develop a method of communicating with aliens. When he discovers that his home village technically does not exist, he finds a way to try and literally put it on the map – by bringing the aliens to town. Of course, that’s easier said than done, if you have to rely on real aliens. If you can make the world think that creatures from another planet have chosen Paglapur to land, that’s another story. Akshay’s character Raj pretends to be a naive villager and gets the rest of the inhabitants, most of whom are escaped mental patients, to play along. They even make crop circles in patterns based on Indian mythology and fabricate some brightly coloured creatures. People may catch on, for Alexx O’Neill’s character cries out, “Look people, it’s a scam!” But – are all the aliens make believe?


Release Date: 31 Aug 2012 Genre: Drama Producer: Farah Khan, Akshay Kumar Star Cast: Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Jaaved Jaaferi, Chitrangda Singh. Writer and director Shirish Kunder has touched on science fiction before, in his film Jaane-E-Maan, where Akshay played an astronaut and some scenes were set in space. This time the location is more down to earth, but the story is out of this world. His wife, producer and choreographer Farah Khan says, “It’s something new. At least it’s a new concept.” There was one popular alien in Indian cinema before, the adorable Jadoo from Koi Mil Gaya and its sequel Krrish, but the former was more obviously aimed at children and the latter

is a super hero film. Shahrukh Khan tackled the superhero genre in last year’s Ra.One which displayed impressive CGI effects. Although science fiction has been around since the movie Mr. India, it is not as popular a genre in India as it is in North America. However, the recent American Spider-Man film blew away the Indian domestic box office, proving that there is a Indian audience for sci-fi. The producers of Joker are hoping so, with a tag-line that states, “When being human doesn’t work, try being alien.” Already there are signs of trouble, though, with the proposed 3D version of the film being dropped. Akshay Kumar has been criticized for not promoting the film wholeheartedly, even though it is his one hundredth screen appearance. Director Kumar spent three crores on the set creating an artificial forest constructed in the Punjab when no real forest could meet

the needs of the production. One of the songs features real sadhus who were convinced to participate for only one shot, giving the number a very unusual look. The film has already created some buzz in the US, where it is the only Indian film in the summer list of upcoming productions in the New York Times. The music is helmed by AR Rahman’s nephew GV Prakash Kumar, but it is the song ‘Kaafirana’ by Gaurav Dagaonkar that has created the buzz. The song was leaked early and the lyrics “I wanna fakht you” became very popular, especially when said out loud. Those lyrics won’t be in the final cut, however. According to Farah Khan, she was relieved that the audio and not the video ended up online. “Thank god, we have to be grateful for small mercies... We have changed the song. This is an old version that we had recorded... We took a decision that we should not make it controversial because basically it’s a family film... The word Marathi ‘fakht’ has been replaced by ‘just’. When asked about the change, Gaurav said he was not upset, but “I feel that ‘I want fakta you’ is the version people are gonna enjoy more! It’s double entendre that’s meant to be enjoyed!”

The song ‘Kaafirana’ by Gaurav Dagaonkar has created huge buzz when leaked early with the lyrics “I wanna fakht you

In any version, the spice will come from the inclusion of Chitangada Singh as the item girl. She didn’t have time to decide whether to become involved in Joker. “It was very quick. Farah called me, I was in Delhi. At eight o’clock in the morning my phone started ringing... ‘Fly down, I want you to do a song for me and I want you here today... I promise you, I’ll make you look like a goddess.’ We rehearsed four hours and the next day we started filming... I couldn’t have asked for a better song to do.” It’s not surprising that there was such a rush, since Farah had to choreograph three songs in twelve days. She has also been very busy with movie promotions. While the average film might

send the actors on tour, Joker started with personal appearances by three of the brightly coloured, oddly shaped aliens. They have been spotted with various celebrities like Boman Irani and Anu Malik. Farah even took them to the ICC 2020 trophy launch. She said, “I think the aliens are having a pretty good time. They got to meet (cricket star) Irfan Pathan.” Hopefully, the audience will have a good time with the aliens. In a country that has produced only a handful of science fiction films, there is certainly room for another entry in the genre.

Every year, the best movies are reserved for the second half of the year, from July to December. This year is no exception with movies like Ek Tha Tiger, Yash Chopra’s next starring SRK and Talaash all expected to do huge business. Many expect 2012 to out gross 2011 by a large margin. Every month seems to be packed with more and more blockbusters including Ek Tha Tiger, Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, Chashme Badoor, Joker, Raaz-3, Barfi!, Heroine, English Vinglish, Ishkq in Paris, Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal, Oh My God!, Chakravyuh, Student of the Year, Ajab Gazabb Love, Aiyya!, Rush, Jolly LLB, Yash Raj’s SRK starrer, Son of Sardaar, Talaash, ABCD - Anybody Can Dance, Khiladi 786, Aashiqui-2 and Dabangg-2. The best part is, it’s an interesting bouquet of films. Besides the usual masala movies that remain hot favorites, a wide variety of stories will be explored in the next six months. Films like Kahaani, Vicky Donor, Paan Singh Tomar, Ishaqzaade and Gangs of Wasseypur have proved that the audience is in a mood to watch non-star cast films as well and one hopes that the next six months will witness a boom of interesting films.

Forbes’ list of highest earning actors is out and several Hollywood A-listers figure in it. While compiling the list, Forbes considers factors including upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

Hard to believe, Salman Khan, Bollywood’s highest paid actor, didn’t even earn half the salary of anyone on this list. Read on to find out who made it to the top spot!

10. Taylor Lautner - The hunky werewolf from the hit Twilight series, Taylor Lautner beat his Twilight Saga co-star Robert Pattinson into 11th place earning $26.5 million from May 2011 – May 2012. 9. Actor/producer Mark Wahlberg takes up the ninth spot in the list with $27 million. Wahlberg has slowly become one of Hollywood’s most desirable actors. He’s proved he can triumph in serious roles like Micky Ward in The Fighter. He’s had successful genre films like last January’s Contraband and he can do funny. His recent comedy, Ted, is a surprise box office hit earning $54 million opening weekend. 8. Actor and rapper Will Smith, whose entire family -- wife Jada Pinkett and kids Willow and Jaden -- is in showbiz, figures at number eight on the list with $30 million in earnings.

7.Johnny Depp, who recently split with longtime partner Vanessa Paradis, is at number seven at $30 million. 6. Actor Sacha Baron Cohen, whose film The Dictator released recently, takes up the sixth spot on the list with $30 million in earnings.


Tom Cruise, who is reeling from wife Katie Holmes’ shocking divorce filing after five years of marriage, topped Forbes’ list of highest earning actors, after earning $75 million between May 2011 and May 2012. The actor, who recently turned 50, enjoyed a successful year after the flick Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol earned more than $700 million at global box offices.


5.Comedian Ben Stiller managed to be at number five with $33 million. 2.Leonardo DiCaprio -- who was last year’s top earner – also made $37 million last year. DiCaprio’s last film, J. Edgar, was neither a financial nor an Oscar success. No matter. DiCaprio is still one of the few actors who can demand a $20 million paycheck for serious, adult films. Up next for actor: a 3-D version of The Great Gatsby.

August 2012 |

3.Producer and actor Adam Sandler earned a cool $ 37 million last year. Critics may hate his movies but a segment of the public usually loves them and made him the third highest actor in Hollywood.

4.Former professional wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was placed in fourth position, earning $36 million after one of his films, Fast Five, raked in an impressive $626 million at the box office.

RAAZ 3 - PREVIEW By:Colleen Hillerup Producer Manesh Bhatt has had a busy summer with his family. Although that might not seem unusual, Manesh’s family is in the erotic thriller business. Hot on the heels of his daughter Pooja’s release, Jism 2, his nephew Vikram’s horror film Raaz 3 is about to haunt the box office. Like many recent Indian films with a number in the title, Raaz 3 is a sequel in style rather than in content. The first Raaz was a successful unofficial adaptation of the Hollywood ghost film What Lies Beneath. Raaz 2: The Mystery Continues explored evil in the human psyche with the tale of paintings that could foretell the future. The new film, subtitled The Third Dimension is a different take on the horror genre: this time in 3D. The film stars Shanghai’s Emraan Hashimi as Aditya, with popular beauty Bipasha Basu as Sanjana. Esha Gupta rounds out the cast playing twin sisters Sanjana and Pia. Having helmed Haunted 3D, director Vikram Bhatt is acquainted with both horror and 3D. His uncle/producer is thrilled to have him on the project. Manesh says, “Vikram Bhatt, my own, the guy who was groomed by me, who blossomed in front of me, who had the audacity to break away from me... Like a prodigal son he went out into the wilderness and life whispered some truths into his ear. He

realized that he wanted to come back home, he was there out in the cold for too long and he came back with this resolve to deliver nothing short of a masterpiece. That’s when the birth of Raaz 3 in 3D took place. He is more inspired after having tasted the scent of success with Haunted, a phenomenal success that he has delivered himself.” Bipasha Basu is also returning to her filmi family. She appeared in Manesh Bhatt’s Jism, and was previous directed by Vikram in Aetbaar. Although the intense shoot for Raaz 3 was interrupted by her becoming ill with exhaustion, she looked very comfortable in a lovely, low-cut red gown in production photos. Esha Gupta was less comfortable when she discovered she would have to strip off her dress in front of three hundred extras in what is

only her second movie, but she persevered and completed the scene where she is attacked by ghosts invading her body. The film’s date has been set back to September 7th so as not to compete with Joker and Barfee. This is just as well, since Bipasha reported on twitter that she was still recording additional dialogue recording as late as July 3rd. Some of the music by musical director Jeet Ganguly was leaked before the official release. ‘Jaanikya Silsila’ starts with a simple piano, but escalates into a rock ballad with an edge. ‘Zindagi Ek Bahar’ is lyrical with a underlying

rock beat. Vikram stated, “Both Mukeshji and Bhatt Saab have guaranteed great music.” The film was rumored to involve vampires, but more recent reports indicate that Emraan is playing a ghost. There is also a rumor, like the one for Jism 2, that Manesh Bhatt is a different kind of ghost, and is ghost-directing the film, unlikely considering Vikram’s experience in the genre. An even more incendiary rumor reports an onscreen sexual three-way between Bipasha, Emraan and Esha, however this was vehemently denied by the director.

What he will confirm is how important the production is to him. “Raaz 3 is more than a film. For me it’s a homecoming. For me it’s a gift that I want to give Bhatt Saab and Mukeshji... There is a great buzz in the office, a great energy. It wants you to go further, to do better. So Raaz is now going to be in 3D, it’s going to be scarier than any of the films I’ve made. It’s going to be more of a love story than any love story we’ve made, and I’m happy to be with Fox Star because the film is going to see a release like no other film can, probably, so it’s good times, great times.” | August 2012
