2008-06-04 08:52:00
Salman Khan was missing at the premier of Sanjay Gupta’s Woodstock Villa, starring his brother Arbaaz Khan. Except Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora (who was seen with Arbaaz), no Khan member was present. The buzz is that it was the presence of the Bachchans (especially Aishwarya’s) that was the cause of Salman’s no-show.Says a source, "Arbaaz held a trial on Thursday for the Khan family at 12.30 in the afternoon at Ketnav theatre in Bandra where everyone from Alvira and Atul Agnihotri, Salim and Salma Khan to Salman was present. After the trial, Salman drove off to his Panvel farmhouse in the evening. But the real reason that Salman and Salim Khan didn’t go for the premier, which was such an important event for Arbaaz was because Salim Khan and Salman wanted to avoid the Bachchan family. Recently, Salim Khan had made certain disparaging remarks against Amitabh Bachchan and it would have made an awkward moment for both if they had come face-to-face."Ap...

2008-06-03 07:23:00
A couple of years ago, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta were the ruling troika of queen bees in Bollywood. Almost overnight, you have new favourites Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif being labelled as the soon-to-be queens, thanks to their box-office successes in recent months. Rani, who’s had a bad innings last year ( Ta Ra Rum Pum and Laaga Chunari Mein Daag ), was tinseltown’s blue-eyed girl until her films crashed at the box-office. Rumours of her marriage to Aditya Chopra didn’t go down well with the audience either. Close rival Preity seems to have shifted gear to meaningful films and has become a franchisee owner of IPL, giving her no time for films. The Bachchan bahu has wrapped up for Sarkar Raj co-starring hubby Abhishek, walked the red carpet in Cannes Film Festival again and is exploring fresher avenues in Hollywood. In such a scenario, it is inevitable that filmmakers would move on to newer stars who can offer bulk dates, commitment ...

Does Abhishek Bachchan’s character die in Sarkar Raj?No he does not.So where did that come from?I’ve no clue. There’s so much untruth floating around the film I don’t know whether to be amused or frightened. They first imagined the hero dies. Then they imagined that the distributors were scared of his death.Every one has an imagination and the freedom to use it.To take a much larger issue, look at the way the murder of that girl Arushi in Delhi is being made into a cause for speculation. I’ve only made a film.You’ve said a man could’ve played Aishwarya Rai’s role?Yes I have. She has no romantic association with Abhishek’s character at all. It’s not a conscious decision to keep them away from romance. The emotional aspect of a relationship can be manifested in many ways.In Sarkar Raj it comes across as drama, treachery, power- play and betrayal.In the light of all these emotions Aishwarya’s relationship with Abhishek i...

And when Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) Tashan failed even to garner a decent opening both on domestic as well as foreign shores, people inside and outside YRF were a worried lot. Budgeted at Rs 40 crore, the movie opened with an initial of 52% in the first week, with collections dropping to 35% in the second week.

It is a failure, even Director and CEO, Yash Raj Films, Sanjeev Kohli accepts. ?Tashan has been a disappointment commercially, as much was expected from it.

In the mid-80s Shah Rukh Khan started on the small screen before graduating to Bollywood to become a big star. Now with the advent of satellite television, top stars are cashing in, making a lot more here than in movies and for much less effort.BELIEVE it or not, India’s number one star, Shah Rukh Khan, makes more money from television than from films.
