“I had no issues with Imran”- Genelia D’Souza

So, what was it like matching steps with Shahid Kapoor? There weren’t too many steps to match, thank God, since I’m playing a choreographer in Chance Pe Dance. What little I had was fun since you’re inspired just watching Shahid groove. The film is not so much about dance as struggle, aspiring actor Sameer’s struggle. I’m his soul mate, the one person he can talk to, laugh and cry with. (Smiles) My line ‘You want to franship with me?’ seems to have caught on in a big way. The short hair is also getting a lot of ‘Wows’. You have a similar soul mate? Yeah, my mom. Since we come from a non-filmi background, we had no one to guide us. We made mistakes and learnt on the job. She was always there by my side which is why this wasn’t just my struggle but our struggle. I thought you’d say Riteish Deshmukh, given the fact that you’ve been close since your first film, Tujhe Meri Kasam, seven years ago, and now apparently are ready to tie the knot. I’m lucky to have Riteish for a friend. I follow him on Twitter, I also follow Shahid, Imran (Khan) and a whole lot of others. I’m clueless about how these marriage rumours started since I don’t see myself settling down for a long time. Since I was promoting my film,...

Abhishek Bachchan’s Sweet Revenge…

Mind you, never ever take his clout lightly. This disclaimer is for Abhishek Bachchan who recently vented his ire on a top billed bollywood actress. It’s an open secret that the chemistry between Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra is getting sour by the day. And the final nail in the coffin was when Abhishek got Priyanka Chopra out of a big film project because she had refused to work in his friend’s film citing date issues. The story goes that Priyanka Chopra refused to work with Rohan Sippy much to the surprise of the filmmaker who had earlier cast her in BLUFFMASTER. Rohan, who is a good friend of Abhishek complained about Priyanka, and Abhi, who already had a few things to settle with Priyanka got her kicked out of the upcoming film THE ITALIAN JOB, in which he plays the lead role. Though, Priyanka’s spokesperson has denied these reports, but looks like Priyanka’s fight with Jr. Bachchan is turning to be a costly affair for the...

I will take the blame if Veer fails: Salman Khan

It is a film that has been in the making for more than two decades and cost a whopping Rs 40 crores, but actor Salman Khan is unfazed while announcing that he is ready to take the blame if ”Veer” fails. The period drama is the brainchild of the Bollywood heartthrob, who also turned scriptwriter for his dream project. “I have been told plenty of times that period dramas are not a safe genre and there are many flops to prove the point. I have left it for the audiences to decide if ”Veer” works or not. If it does, the credit will be everybody”s and if it doesn”t, then I will take the blame,” said Khan during a press conference in the city to promote the film which releases on January 22. The 44-year-old actor plays a Pindari soldier leading a revolt against the British in the film set in 1857 and the project in the actor”s own words has been a “long and hard journey”. “The idea has stayed with me for the past two decades and back then there was no scope for an ambitious project like ”Veer”, not the budget, neither the audience. But that has changed now and after a long time, the film finally materialised,” said Khan. The actor went the whole hog for his pet project. He spent months learning horse riding...

Hollywood actress Kristen Stewart has said she feels she has become her Twilight character Bella Swan. The 19-year-old feels “protective” of her big screen alter ego because their lives have progressed in a similar way, reports fametastic.co.uk. “I feel like Bella has become something that is me, in a weird way.

I’ve grown a lot, and so has Bella,” she...
