One of the Bollywood most celebrated couple might get back on big screen. Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai who’s chemistry sizzled in the movie Devdas might go on to star in Ashutosh Gowariker’s next venture.

Shah Rukh and Aishwarya not only started in Devdas but also in other movies like Josh (as brother and sister) and Mohabbatein. Just when the audience was loving their chemistry the two stars drifted apart due to personal issues.

Aishwarya Rai was supposed to play the lead role in the movie ‘Chalte Chalte’ which was produced by Shah Rukh Khan. But it is said that her then boyfriend disrupted the sets and Aishwarya Rai walked out. Rani Mukerjee ultimately went on to star opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

But SRK and Bachchan family are close and things have been better between Aishwarya and Shah Rukh.

If rumors are to be believed then Aishwarya and Shah Rukh might star in Swades sequel planned by Ashutosh.

Added by harini on Jun 21, 2011

"Abhishek and I feel that an original should be left (as) original. People who are doing remakes have the rights of the original films... so they can do it," said Amitabh Bachchan when asked if his company AB Corp would be remaking any of his hit films.

Amitabh Bachchan movies like ‘Agneepath’ and ‘Saathe pe Saatha’ are being re-made.

"For my generation, Dilip Kumar was the ultimate ''Devdas''. For today’s youth, it is Shah Rukh. Tastes and preferences change with generations as one goes about remaking the same product. Who knows, after some year’s people might feel that Shah Rukh is the original Don," he added.

He said that his own portrayal of ‘Angry Young Man’ wasn’t an original. "There were few of them before me, prominent one being Duttsaab (Sunil Dutt) in Mother India”, he said. He also added that his character because the youth from that generation identified with his character.

When asked about what he missed the most from yester years, Big B said that it was soft lyrics that he missed the most. He hopes that the song ‘Haal-e-dil’ that he sung for his upcoming movie Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap will be able to revive some of the olden days magic and also become a hit.

He also said that the quality of the dialogues and screenplay have gone down. "Today, there is no longevity”, he said.

Aamir Khan has left no stone unturned in promoting his new movie ‘Delhi Belly’. But as luck would have it, he would be competing against none other than Big B. The Imran Khan starter ‘Delhi Belly’ is slated to release on the same day as Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Bbuddah… Hoga Tera Baap’.

"I am nothing compared to Mr. Bachchan. I have grown up watching his movies. He is the living legend of our country. The line starts from where he stands; I might be at the end of that line. I pray that his movie does well," said Imran Khan. Talk about playing it safe!

While talking about the ‘DK Bose’ song controversy Imran said, “People assume Aamir to be a soft target since he never responds to any comments given by them. There have been lyrics worse than D K Bose, but no one objected to them. Bhaag D. K. Bose is a good song and many people like it”.

He said the movie’s target audience was the youth. “Delhi Belly is for youngsters and if they like it then I am happy with it,” he said.

Given that not only ‘DK Bose’ song but also Ja Chudail and Switty Tera Pyar Chaida are also hit with the youngsters and audience are already keen to watch the movie, movie might do a good business.

The doctors have reportedly advised the star to take some rest. "The doctor has advised Shah Rukh not to strain his knee. As a result he will have to cut down on the shooting and physical work. He may have to skip going to IIFA because of his knee injury," added the source.

But the director of IFFA awards, Sabbas Joseph maintains that Shah Rukh Khan will perform his year.

Minissha miffed with Vinay Pathak

Added by harini on Jun 18, 2011

When Minissha Lamba signed on for the movie ‘Bheja Fry 2’, she was not only excited to have an opportunity to work with a winning team but was also looking to revive her career which was going downhill.

But it seems that the actress dint get what she was hoping to get from the movie. The actress is said to be upset with Vinay Pathak… the hero of the movie hogging the lime light.

The tension between the two was very evident when Minissha Lamba refused to give an interview with her co-star Vinay Pathak. Minissha Lamba was miffed when Vinay Pathak hardly gave her a chance to talk and hogged the lime light.

"Minissha got irritated because Vinay was constantly talking about Bheja Fry 2 and his role, hardly giving her any chance to speak. Vinay Pathak also cracked some jokes which did not go down very well with the actress," said a source.

But Minissha contradicts the source as she said, “When it comes to comedy in Hindi cinema, there is very minimal scope for heroines. The genre is such that the best comic scenes are always penned from the man’s point of view. Though I don’t entirely understand the logic behind it, I don’t challenge it either. It’s good to accept things”.

“Definitely, at the end of the day Bheja Fry will always be about Bharat Bhushan (played by Vinay Pathak). So instead of cribbing about the length of individual roles, it’s better to contribute what’s expected of you and then sit back and enjoy what Vinay does on screen. That’s what I am going to do”, she added.

All's not well in Kareena Saif's paradise

Added by harini on Jun 18, 2011

If the rumors are to be believed all is not well in Kareena and Saif’s paradise. The 4 year old relationship between the couple seems to be going through a rough phase.

“They are having some issues. They have been arguing and fighting a lot, more than normal couples do. And it isn't healthy. One of the reasons for the differences is that they are not being able to spend time with each other. Bebo has always been the busier one (by choice) and Saif had no qualms about being with her on the outdoors of her films, whenever time permits. But since he began shooting for his last two films — Akarshan and Cocktail — things haven't been the same”, said an inside course close to the couple.

Kareena Kapoor might just be the busiest star currently as she has 5 major movies in her kitty. Saif is said to be furious with the fact that Kareena dint even make time for their annual holiday this year.
