The famous Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif says she got her inspiration from pop icon Shakira for her sizzling item song ‘Shiela Ki Jawani’ for her latest film Tees Maar Khan.
The reporters pestered with questions about her resemblance to pop icon Shakira, and she politely said that she can only dream of comparisons. She says, “I can only dream of such comparisons. To be very frank, I drew inspiration from her. If my dance in the song ‘Shiela Ki Jawani’ reminds the viewers of Shakira, it is a huge reward for me.” She is currently in Kolkatta promoting Tees Maar Khan.
She is praising director Farah Khan and gave her all the credit for the huge success of this song. She added, “We have worked hard for this song. But the credit goes to Farah Khan and her conceptualization of the song. She is a brilliant choreographer.”
Tees Maar Khan is directed by Farah Khan and is set to release on December 24. It is already hitting the headlines for this new item song ‘Shiela Ki Jawani’, which features Katrina.
When asked Katrina about her role in the movie she says, “My role is of an aspiring actress, she is not very aggressive as it looked in the song. She is very naÃ¯ve and sweet. She is the girlfriend of Akshay in this film. She gets herself into trouble because of her own stupidity. Its’ a fun character.”
This complete movie revolves around Tarbez Mirza Khan, who is a criminal played by Akshay Kumar. His girlfriend Anya played by Katrina gets a new job of robbing antiques worth Rs. 500 crore from a huge guarded environment. This film is an action comedy.
Barbara Mori’s new Spanish film My Brother’s Wife will be releasing in India this month along with the titles A Beautiful Wife in English with Spanish beauty featuring in Hindi. The title of Barbara’s next is very similar with the Yash Raj Films new project. This movie stars Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif and it is titled as Mere Brother ki Dulhan. Sources have revealed that both the projects have similar story lines.
My Brother’s Wife theme is adulterous, which deals with a women’s affair with her husband’s brother. However, Yash Raj Films has toned down the same version. Yash Raj has made a film on a guy (Imran) who falls for his brother’s (Ali Zafar) fiancÃ© (Katrina). Mere Brother ki Dulhan is still under production, while Barbara’s movie is set to release in India soon.
An industry insider says, “YRF does not consider Barbaraâ€™s film has a threat for their project. They feel its release will not affect the Katrina-Imran starrer, because YRF has given a more romantic tone than an adult one. Even though the basic premise is similar, the treatment will be different.”
The distributors have considered the similarity in the title between Mere Brother ki Dulhan and My Brother’s Wife, the distributors have decided to name Mori’s film A Beautiful Wife. Dhaval Gada from Pen India is distributing this film and says, “We heard about the film Mere Brother ki Dulhan. The title did make us think that the theme of their film maybe similar to out movie, Spanish Beauty. However, we do not know their script or storyline. Anyway, we have tweaked the original story of Spanish Beauty to suit the Indian taste and the film will now reflect the triangular relationship between a husband, wife and the husband’s brother.”
When asked the spokesperson of YRF he denied of any similarities between both the movies. He says, “It is not true. There is no similarity between the two stories whatsoever.”
Katrina Kaif has never admitted of her relationship with Salman Khan in the past eight years. They have acted together and she was like a permanent fixture at his place, but she always maintained that they were good friends. However, on Tuesday she finally admitted in a daily that she has split with the Dabangg actor.
An industry source revealed, “On Monday, an article in a morninger carried quotes from a very old interview of Kat, in which she had spoken about her closeness with Salman. This did upset the actress, who is trying very hard to maintain a professional relation with her ex.”
The actress made a few calls to her higher-ups in the industry and said that she wanted to clear the air about Salman. The following day she gave an interview where she admitted of her split with Salman and it was flashed on the front page of the tabloid under the title: For the first time.
So, now the question comes: Why did Katrina finally come clean about Salman? An insider says, “That interview made matters embarrassing for her. She is dating Ranbir now, and the Kapoor Khandaan have welcomed her into their fold. How would she explain an interview about Salman being a ‘4 am friend’?”
Her confession about her break-up was a face-saving attempt.
A close source to the actress added, “When Kat read an article about Salman and her closeness, she was very upset. She does not want to send out the wrong signals to Ranbir or his family. She is not with Sallu anymore. Though Salman and Kat broke up long ago, they continue to be friends. She appreciates all that he has done for her, and they will always be there for one another. After the latest being human show he even asked her to party with his friends, but she denied it as she had an early morning flight. Though Kat and Salman are still in touch with one another, but they are no more romantically involved and she does not want to give a wrong impression to anyone.”
So, we guess the message is perfectly clear!
Prakash Jha, a bollywood filmmaker launched a TV channel called ‘Morya’ last week. The entire cast of the upcoming movie, ‘Rajneeti‘ was present there along with Bhojpuri stars Ravi Kisan and Manoj Tiwari. Prakash Jha asked Katrina to speak in Bhojpuri. A source said, “Considering that Katrina speaks Hindi with difficulty, she had goose bumps when she was asked to speak in Bhojpuri. However, Prakash gave her three tutors Manoj Tiwari, Ravi Kisan and Manoj Bajpai. Katrina was willing to learn. They could manage to teach her only one line as it was difficult for her to understand.”
Manoj Tiwari confirmed this incident and said, “It was quite funny, Katrina was excited about it, so the three of us coached her to address the crowd with ‘Ka Haal ba Patna’. She diligently wrote it down on paper and mugged it. However, instead of saying ‘Haal ba’ she kept on repeating ‘Halba’ which sounded like ‘Halwa’. Bajpai and Ravi kept pulling her leg. We all were impressed with Katrina’s determination.
Imagine what will happen when Ranbir’s ‘best friend’ Katrina Kaif accidentally bumps into his ex Deepika Padukone. Recently at a shoot, both these girls exchanged cold stares even before Katrina walked out. Both of them were not in the mood of acknowledging each other. Apparently, Ranbir Kapoor became close friends with Katrina Kaif when he was dating Deepika.
On Wednesday, Dips was busy with a magazine photo shoot in the Mehboob Studio open area. An eyewitness who was watching all this says, “Deepika had come with Farhan Akhtar for her photo shoot. Somewhere around late afternoon, Deepika was giving her solo shots in the garden area of the studio. While Deepika was doing her last minute touch-up, there was pin drop silence and all eyes swiveled to the entrance. It was Katrina Kaif, who had accidentally walked in, thinking it was the venue where she was called for the shoot. She was dressed in a short white skirt and a pink tee, Katrnia walked in and froze for a second. Deepika, who was standing some distance away, saw her. Both had a few seconds of eye contact, and Katrina immediately took a U-turn and walked away.”
It was not surprising at all considering their history. A close source revealed, “Although Ranbir and Deepika are not seeing each other anymore, the latter still has issues with Katrina. It was the growing friendship between Katrina and Ranbir which marked an end to her relationship.” When asked Katrina and Deepika about this incident they were both unavailable for the comment.
The famous Bollywood photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s annual 2010 calendar is out. This is the 11th year where he has captured all the top celebrities for his trademark calendar. The calendar this year will have a black-and-white theme.
Deepika Padukone’s picture looks like she is not wearing anything, since all the body parts you see are bare. Dabboo Ratnani says, “I wanted to make her look sensual, but aesthetic. Last year, I shot her in a sari, so this is in total contrast. She strikes a thinking, dreamy pose, and I have used lighting to match her mood. Normally Bollywood is associated with bright colors. Black and white images are of the bygone eras but I opted for a stark B&W mood in the snapshots is dark but the styling modem.”
Every year, Dabboo starts his preparations in October. Although, he has many interactions with the celebrities for their shots for magazines, movies and portfolios, every year all of them take time out for the calendar. Ratnani says, “The shoot provides the stars a platform to experiment with their looks and styling.” The 2010 calendar includes celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, John Abraham, Sonam Kapoor and Kangna Ranaut.
The celebrities who are making their first appearance in this calendar are Asin, Farhan Akhtar, Genelia D’Souza and Imran Khan. Dabboo does not want to comment on which star is looking the best. He says, “They are all my friends and go out of their way to cooperate. For me they all look hot.” Dabboo Ratnani is not interested in selling his calendar in the market, it is exclusively made for the Bollywood celebrities.
Love is in the air especially for Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. They both share a special bond, which is more than friendship. Ranbir and Katrina shared a special closeness on the sets of their latest release Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani and the bond continued to grow further on the sets of Rajneeti.
There were rumors last year about their alleged closeness. However, at that time both of them were happy in their relationships. Now, they are single and reviving their love for each other without any guilt. Some of the close friends of Ranbir and Katrina disclosed they are more than friends and now it has become very difficult to hide their love for each other.
Ranbir and Katrina started meeting each other, and started exchanging love messages and phone calls the moment Ranbir’s break-up news was out in the public. Katrina Kaif claims that she is just good friends with Salman, and they have moved on in their respective life. However, Ranbir is madly in love with Katrina and does not want to hide his feelings for her.
A close source of Ranbir revealed that he has been much tensed about Katrinaâ€™s illness. He keeps on calling her just to make sure, if she is ok, he also advices her to take rest and slow down the work. He has also assured Katrinaâ€™s family in London that he will be taking care of her. Kat’s cannot stop praising Ranbir for his concern.
Katrina pays a regular visit to the Kapoor house. Since, Ranbir is very close to his mom and wants her approval for his love. Therefore, Kat’s is trying her best to get their relationship approved from her. The biggest proof of their love affair is a heart shaped diamond pendant Ranbir gifted her. Close friends of the couple confirmed that they are going to make their relation official soon.
The Hera Pheri team- director Priyadarshan, stars Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty - is the dream team in Bollywood, who is once again ready to create the same laugh riot with De Dana Dan. However the bonus this time is the magical romantic pairing of Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar. The film is about to release on November 27 and promises to roll off audience from their seats.
Ratan Jain, producer of the film, said, “For most of the filmmakers of Bollywood, this is a dream team. The Hera Pheri combo is back to entertain after a gap of nine years. Of course, as a bonus, there is the hit jodi of Akshay and Katrina who have a magical romantic track in the film.”
Jain is happy with his productions house’s long association with Priyadarshan having produced films- Hungama, Hulchul, Garam Masala earlier. De Dana Dan’s cast includes 26 top comic actors from the industry. However, Katrina who recently played a comic role in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajb Kahani is excited about this film too.
News about Katrina Kaif turning into producer has doused off. But the new buzz is that she is remaking a French love story Ã€ la folie… pas du tout which means He loves me… he loves me not. French actress Audrey Tautou played the protagonist in the original film and had received much acclaim for it. However for the Hindi version of the film, Katz will play the protagonist.
A source said, â€œKatrina fell in love with the film after she saw it. In fact, she wanted to make the film the very moment she saw it. The actress has already spoken to the concerned people and will acquire the rights of the film soon.â€
Katrina is aiming Vipul Shah to direct the film. â€œThe film is filled with emotions and Katrina strongly believes that Vipul will be able to translate it onto the big screen. The film is a love story about a young artist who sees the world through rose-tinted glasses, especially when it comes to her love,” added the source.
Other cast of the fill is not yet decided, however shooting for the film will start next year. When asked to Katrina, she denied the news, but a source close to her says that it’s true.
Katrina who is the demand of the industry now days, knows how to handle link-ups and rumours. Seem like Katrina learnt about how to deal with then within a short career span.
She has been linked up with many actors and the latest one was to Ranbir Kapoor from Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani. Recently when asked to the actress about it, she said, “It’s just getting too much. You are linked to every actor you are working with. That happens for every movie these days and one just has to stop reacting to it.”
Katz has her own fundas at work. And guess what? This might be the reason that the actress is one of the top actresses in Bollywood today.
