  • Maryam Zakaria Next Item Girl

    Thursday, Mar 29/03/2012 // Bollywood, News

    Item girls are everywhere. Adding themselves to this list of item girls is Maryam Zakaria as she will be seen dancing in Rowdy Rathore.
    For those of you unfamiliar with the name Maryam Zakaria, she was the beauty in blue alongside Kareena Kapoor in “Dil Mera Muft Ka” in Agent Vinod. Because both the actresses starring in the song were characters in the film, “Dil Mera Muft Ka” does not meet the ‘item girl’ standards; therefore, Maryam’s number in Rowdy Rathore will be her Hindi item song debut. Born in Iran and raised in Sweden, Maryam is a dancer. She established a school in Sweden, which taught Bollywood dance soon leading her to Mumbai. In India, Maryam’s career started with modeling and television ads. For her number in Rowdy Rathore, Prabhudeva will be directing this beauty. Talking to reporters about the number, Maryam says, “I am doing an item song in Rowdy Rathore.In the song I have an Indian look. It is a catchy, fast-paced song. I don’t dance with Akshay or Sonakshi in the song.” Stay tuned for this summer release!

  • Agent Vinod’s Pyaar Ki Pungi unoriginal?

    Thursday, Mar 22/03/2012 // Blog, Bollywood

    Agent Vinod’s song “Pyaar Ki Pungi” is in the line of fire as music producer Pritam is being accused of stealing someone else’s production. “Pyaar Ki Pungi” takes us to a grand hotel where Saif Ali Khan seems intoxicated and is dancing through the halls. The video is ridiculous and the song has been catching on with fans. In a room there are spies watching Saif’s antics and he soon crashes their party and reminds us he is always one step ahead of the enemy.

    The first song that bears resemblance to this song is Hassan Jahangir’s “Hawa Hawa Khushboo Luta De.” These rumors and comparisons have been circulating for quite a while and many thought the dust had settled. Well it hasn’t! Now the band Barobax, from Tehran, recognizes their 2010 single “Soosan Khanoom” in “Pyaar Ki Pungi.” Co-Producer Dinesh Vijan is taking the allegations down by saying, “There is no infringement of copyright or any other right. And any attempt to initiate proceedings for alleged infringement of copyright is ill conceived, ill-advised and untenable by law. Any action in this regard will be vigorously opposed and resisted in accordance with the law.” This is not the first time music-director Pritam has been put in the hot seat, but guess what, it doesn’t end there! The latest buzz from Bollywood is that “Pyaar Ki Pungi” was not even created for Agent Vinod. Apparently, the song was recorded for the Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone film for Dharma Productions titled “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. ” What a mess! Check out the video for Pyar Ki Pungi by clicking here.

  • Ranbir and Deepika reunite on screen!

    Tuesday, Mar 20/03/2012 // Blog, Bollywood

    Ex-lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika are getting back together, on screen that is. Director Ayan Mukherjee has cast the pair opposite each other in the upcoming film “Yeh Jawaani Yeh Deewani.” Supposedly, Deepika Padukone really wanted to be part of the film and agreed to be cast in the film after a series of narrations by the director. Ranbir had already been signed on earlier for the movie since Ayan Mukherjee had already worked with Ranbir in “Wake Up Sid” and was keen to work with him again. We also hear that Deepika and Ranbir will have a few close and intimate scenes in the movie. A source tells us that both actors are well aware of the intimate scenes they are required to do and are mentally prepared to deliver. Last time, we saw this cute couple was in “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, who knows maybe “Yeh Jawaani Yeh Deewani” could they re-ignite that spark these two actors once had, and we could possibly see an off screen couple again?

  • Indraneil Sengupta Kahaani’s Missing Man?

    Thursday, Mar 08/03/2012 // Blog, Bollywood

    Kahaani is Vidya Balan’s next release. She is on the top of her career making expectations for her next release quite high. The clips, story, and everything in-between has focused on the leading lady. Now headlines are shifting focus as reports reveal the film’s lead actor as Indraneil Sengupta.

    Sujoy Ghosh’s film tells the tale of a pregnant woman on a search for her missing husband. Vidya heads to Kolkata where she believes her husband has disappeared. The authorities don’t take Vidya seriously leaving her frustrated and alone on her search till things get serious. Vidya follows up on all her leads and realizes everything she thought she knew was wrong. Does she even know the man she married?

    With a plot like this, it is no wonder that the actor in the lead role isn’t necessary in the promo, but we all are curious. Indraneil is not credited with anything from the filmmakers, but he did tell reporters “I have played a part in the film. I am not telling you what it is, but it is a suspense thriller and I hope people will watch the film to find out more.” There is still a chance that someone else plays Vidya’s husband in Kahaani, but for now we are following this lead.

    After the success of his smash hit debut album “Gabru Panjab Dha”, JK is a rising Bhangra star whose already taking the Punjabi music scene by storm. With much success from his previous singles, he’s working non-stop and is now ready to give viewers a preview of his upcoming video release titled “England Nachda”. The video was shot by Kully from Ballistic in JK’s hometown of Derby. The single “England Nachda” is bhangra track infused with hip-hop beats produced by Tru-Skool. The teaser is unique from any video trailer that anyone has ever seen. The concept of the video teaser is to show fans what the initial steps are when trying to create a music video. The first step to create any film project is to draw a storyboard. A storyboard is essentially a large comic of the film or some section of the film produced beforehand to help directors visualize the scenes before filming begins. In this video teaser, we see a 30 second clip of the actual drawn storyboard which shows drawing sketches of JK, motor bikes, reporters, and newspapers. The storyboard concept definitely leaves a lot to the imagination. We can’t wait to see the final video which will be releasing on March 6th 2012.
