Ranveer Singh to go BALD for Bajirao Mastani

ranveer b
As reported earlier Ranveer Singh has bagged Sanjay Leela’s coveted role of Bajirao Peshwa opposite Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in Bajirao Mastani.

Rumors have it that Ranveer will be going bald for the role!!! I can hardly believe it, Ranveer Singh with his luscious locks… but this boy is known for his various looks from Band Baaja’s Bittu to Lootera’s Varun to RamLeela’s Ram to Kabir in Dil Dhadakne Do, I am sure if anyone can pull of versatility it is Ranveer.

Along with going bald, Ranveer is also to learn Marathi and how to ride a horse. No one has ever accused this boy of shirking from work.

Along with his leading lady he will be learning the art of Kathak. While Deeps also immerses herself in learning Kalaripayattu, one of the ancient Indian martial arts form.

I for one cannot wait for this movie. The actors seem like they have a LOT of hard work ahead of them, but SLB has chosen some of the most skillful and talented workers in all of B-Town.

Alia Bhatt’s Rendition of Samjhawan

First Alia Bhatt surprised the world with her acting talent in Highway, now get ready to hear her sing in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, releasing July 11th.  It’s a sweet rendition of the song originally sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and more recently by Arijit Singh.

There will obviously be comparisons to Shraddha’s Galiyan but both girls have their own style and I want to commend them both on taking the risk.

Can’t wait for the movie to come out!

 

Cast of Finding Fanny on Finding Fanny

Although the movie isn’t set to hit the screens until September 12, the trailer comes out TOMORROW (July 9th, 2014!!) The cast of Finding Fanny are here to tell you why YOU should watch the trailer in a new PR move?

I personally found it adorable and endearing. While both Deepika and Arjun tweeted the looks of their characters last week, audience can get the feel of the rest of the main cast before the trailer comes out, in the form of Nasreenuddi Shah, Pankaj Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about the chemistry between Arjun and Deeps, maybe its because of my all time favorite “rumored” pairing of Deepika-Ranveer but I see friendship there, however they played it off adorable. That pout… ufff

Finding Fanny hits theaters September 12 and the trailer is out tomorrow!

Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider – The Trailer Review

After giving masterpieces such as Maqbool and Omkara, Vishal Bhardwaj is back, this time with Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the form of Haider. I’ve been waiting for Shahid Kapoor’s Haider trailer to be released forEVER and if the movie is anywhere as good and filled with emotion and passion as the trailer it should be amazing!

Props to Shahid for FINALLY picking up a meaty role (I believe its the first time since Kaminay). This one will most certainly broadcast that his acting abilities are AT LEAST as good as his dancing skills.

The trailer doesn’t show much of Shraddha but enough to show that she has once again, chosen a different character to play. I’m giving this girl major props on her choice of roles in the beginning of her career, for really taking a risk and branching out.

Tabu looks impressive in every shot she has, I can’t tell if she is someone to be wary off or to pity, I’ve a feeling the character is a rare nicely full fleshed character where its a mix of both… let’s see if I am correct.

Can’t wait to see Kay-Kay Menon and Irfan Khan. The movie boasts a fantastic cast and is based on my favorite Shakespearean play. I cannot wait til October 2nd to see the final.

Let’s see how it holds out against Hrithik and Katrina’s Bang Bang, releasing the same day!! I for one am hoping this is the boost Shahid’s career needs.

Deepika Padukone: FHM’s Sexiest Woman of 2014

Happy Belated 4th of July to all my American viewers! Congrats on the dethroning of Great Britain so many years ago. More recently, Deepika Padukone dethronned Katrina Kaif on her back to back 5 year run as FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World! This past year really WAS the year of the Deepika it seems!

Surprisingly (or not so much?!?) Ms. Kaif did not even come second place as India’s favorite globe trotter Priyanka Chopra claimed second place, pushing Katrina on to number 3.  Nargis Fakhri took 4th place and Shruti Hassan completed the top 5.

Congrats ladies!

Samjhawan – Humpty Sharma Remake

I didn’t think anyone could do justice to this song after Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, but once again Arjit Singh has proved me wrong with his melodious voice. I’m totally loving it.

Alia Bhatt is slowly but surely growing on me. I loved her in Highway  and liked her enough in 2 States. Varun for sure worked his magic on me in Main Tera Hero and from the trailers I think he’s about to do it once again in Humpty Sharma.

saturday saturday

Let’s hope this duo has a better chemistry in this Dharma Production than they had in their first film, Student of the Year. I am actually SUPER excited (and unabashedly so) for this movie; it seems like a perfect rom-com. This is an adorable song.  Much better than the Saturday Saturday where the music is catchy and nice but I’m not feeling the first outfit on Alia  (even though slightly obsessing over the top). She has such a cute baby face the make up for the first outfit looks overdone and she looks WAY better in the nude lips for the rest of the set with the wavy hair.

 

 

Bollywood In Cannes

 

So as everyone was well aware Cannes Film Festival was this weekend. As for me, well, I was only excited about who would be spotted at the French Riviera. Fear not fellow bolly-addicts here are some of our style icons …and Uday Chopra in France this past weekend.

Sonam Kapoor hit the mark in both her red carpet appearance. She looked absolutely STUNNING in the white Anamika Khanna net sari dress, though I couldn’t tell it was a sari dress. I would kill for that necklace. Ms. Kapoor was also all smiles in the Elle Saab black dress she wore. I would say the L’Oreal spokes model definitely made several best dressed list in the beaded gown. Sonam you certainly left your mark this year girlfriend…and for all the right reasons.

cannes 17 "Foxcatcher" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film FestivalMalika Sherawat, known more for her hot bod and her fast speaking mouth was also present to support the “Grace of Monaco”. She also looked pretty and dare I say classy in a blue lace Emilio Pucci gown.

Uday Chopra was also present for the same movie, Grace of Monaco. He was unfortunately sans his gorgeous girlfriend Nargis Fakhri. I would have LOVED a Fakhri sighting, especially to see her reunited with her Koffee with Karan guest star, Freida Pinto.

Freida Pinto, still best known for Slumdog Millionaire was at Cannes for the screening of her film, the Homesman. I am droooling over her pink/fuchsia Oscar de la Renta gown, just LOOK at the tail flowing over the stairs. I am so glad she did not have any tumbles a la J-Law but I am sure she could have handled them just as graciously.
The white Michael Kors dress was slightly muted compared to the pink de la Renta and Freida looked very pretty but … oh who am I kidding the de la Renta gown stole my breath away. Kudos on the brilliant choice.

Last but most definitely not least is Mrs. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In her 13th year attending the Cannes Festival I must say she looked beautiful and healthy…and no I don’t mean healthy in the nasty, judging way a desi aunty calls you healthy after eyeing you up and down. She looked happy, fit, the dress was becoming to her and most of all the cameras (and public) loved her. Congrats Ash. I am so proud of you.

Mrs. Bachchan missed her first red carpet walk because of a delayed flight but I guess it made the cameras even more hungry for her. I am sorry for using the word stunning again but Ash deserves it. She looked stunning in a golden Roberto Cavalli mermaid gown. cannes 13 cannes 14 cannes 15 cannes 16
