The Buzz on Upcoming Films
Salman has no time for love
After garnering (in)fame for a tempestuous love life, Salman Khan is now claiming that he has no time for love. Well, high time, one would say! But no, before you jump to conclusions, Sallu hasn't changed. Lucky? No Time For Love is the catchy title of Salman's next home production which in which he himself stars. And contrary to what the brat may claim, Katrina ?Boom' Kaif and he are supposed to be getting utterly fond of one another. But ask the pretty lady about Salman and she's quick to dismiss all such reports as "utter rubbish". Even as we write this, reports come in that the superbrat is now back with his former girlfriend Somy Ali. Phew!
Incidentally, the confident Vivek Oberoi (you tend to think of these two guys together now) is planning to produce a film. And he's just a couple of films old! Rumored to be based on the novel Azizunbai, the film is a love story between a courtesan and a rebel, where Vivek plays the lead and 'good friend' Aishwarya Rai, his romantic interest. The actor is hoping to rope in Rajkumar Santoshi to direct his project. By the way, onlookers at Cannes were quite amused to see Vivek following Ash wherever she went, much like Mary's little lamb!
?Coffee' brewing for Mahima
There are some stimulating things brewing for Mahima Chaudhary. Coffee, for instance. That's the title of her forthcoming project for which the actress is busy shooting these days. To be made in Hindi and Spanish, the film is about a woman who runs a coffee shop in Spain. And if insiders are to be believed, Coffee is the remake of the English Chocolat wth Mahima essaying Juliette Binoche's role. Incidentally, Mahima, contrary to her image, is pretty prudish. In her forthcoming movie titled Film Star (earlier titled Vaasta), the actress was required to do a passionate kissing scene with her co-star Priyanshu Chatterjee. We hear Ms Chaudhary categorically put her foot down and refused to obey her director Tanuja Chandra. A show of loyalty to boyfriend Leander Paes, what? Reportedly, the twosome are back at their ?now off, now on' love game.
Tabu in a fiendish mood
Playing good is taboo for Tabu these days ? "I'm tired of doing conventional roles and want to attempt the negative ones." So when Vishal Bhardwaj offered her the fiendish Lady Macbeth's role in Mian Maqbool, his adaptation of Shakespeare's great tragedy, the actress said yes without batting an eyelid. The fact that all the Hollywood actresses who have played Lady Macbeth in the past had been affected some way or the other, doesn't seem to bother Tabu. While some are said to have become mentally unhinged, others complained of physical pain. One of them reportedly even died. "I don't really know about all this but I'll break the jinx for sure," says Tabu nonchalantly, who is also doing a horror flick titled Hawa in which she gets raped by a ghost. "The idea seemed crazy and I wanted to shock my sensibilities." That's not all, the daring actress is playing mom to a new actor in her forthcoming movie titled Aas! Clearly, nothing's taboo for this girl.
Big B in canine company
Four lucky dogs will be in the esteemed company of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in the coming months. The two actors have been finalized for a film drawing its name from the canines. Yes, Dogs is the title of the movie to be directed by debutant Mukul Abhyankar. The film also stars former Miss World Diana Hayden who will play the role of a prostitute in it. Some dogs do 'ave them!
While on Big B, he is reportedly to star in a movie based on the life of Nobel Prize winner Nelson Mandela. Bachchan will probably play the role of Mac Maharaj, who was transport minister under Mandela's first democratic government and who spent 12 years on Robben Island prison with Mandela and other ANC leaders. The celebrated actor meanwhile continues to be honoured for his contribution to Indian cinema. He was recently conferred the Lifetime Achievement Award by Asia Guild in London.
