Biker boys

So, Aamir Khan has green lighted one more project! That's YashRaj's “Dhoom 3” to be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. The surprise is that Aamir will play the baddie in this film. Just to refresh your memory, the actor had refused to play the iconic role of Rahul in “Darr” (1993), which was eventually played by Shah Rukh Khan, a rank newcomer who went on to create history in Bollywood. Uday Chopra, who was initially touted to be the director of this part of the series, is happy to have Aamir on board. His recent Twitter message even pompously said that the “Dhoom” boys (read Abhishek and himself) would either learn from Aamir or teach him a few things!

Rechristening Bollywood

After Amitabh Bachchan, it is the turn of Salman Khan to get furious with the name Bollywood. Sr Bachchan's allergy to the name is well known, but when Salman pipes in with a complaint too, it is strange. His case: Bollywood was when the city was called Bombay, with the name change, it should possibly become ‘Mumllywood'! Now, why don't they have an official name-changing ceremony?

Just for you

Padmashri Award winner Kajol may have a small baby to take care of, but the loyal friend that she is, the actor is taking time out for a cameo in Karan Johar's next popcorn film, “Student of the Year”. The third angle, Shah Rukh Khan, is not just co-producing the film, but also acting in it. The film marks the debut of David Dhawan's son Varun and Mahesh Bhatt's daughter Alia. Kajol admits that being a lucky charm for KJo is the only reason why she agrees to do his ‘30-second' cameos!
