W e've just heard that Reema Kagti's next film (her first was “Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd”), featuring Aamir Khan, Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor might have as backdrop a red-light area. Apparently, perfectionist Aamir is insisting that it be shot on location, while Farhan Akhtar, who's producing the film, is trying to convince him otherwise. The juicy bit we hear is that the two female leads are in ‘talks' over who will play a sex worker. Remember, both Rani and Kareena have essayed similar roles earlier?
Director of the year
S o, the big news about Karan Johar is his return to candyfloss entertainment. The producer-director has grandly announced his next directorial venture, “Student of The Year”, with Mahesh Bhatt's daughter Alia, David Dhawan's son Varun, and another newcomer Siddharth Malhotra. We clearly remember that Karan had sworn off pink romance (his last two films were “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna” and “My Name is Khan”). He felt that with younger directors coming into the fold of Dharma Productions, he ought to veer towards serious cinema. Now, does the commercial response to both these films have anything to do with his changed stance?
S alman Khan is in no mood to forgive, even though Shah Rukh Khan has mumbled some sort of an apology on Karan Johar's chat show. Salman was heard saying that Shah Rukh has done so publicly only to ensure that the media hounds him with questions about their spat. SRK may even extend the olive branch personally, but Salman certainly feels that forgiveness is a zillion light years away. Remember what happened to a certain Vivek Oberoi?
