Mahi On an Experimental Spree

1. Meena Kumari Scion of Gangs of Ghosts

After yesteryear onscreen Vamp Bindu aka 'Mona Darling', now it's tragedy queen Meena Kumari who has turned into a source of inspiration for Mahi.

Reportedly in her next cine flick Gangs of Ghost, Mahie will be emulating a character of an alcoholic, which somewhat resembles some of the onscreen characters of Meena Kumari.

2. When Mahi turned into Mona Darling

If we ever remember legendary Ajit's the nasal drawled pronunciation of 'Mona Darling' then the only face that flashes in our memories is that of yesteryear actress Bindu.

But now with remake of the classic cine flick Zanjeer hopefully in the years ahead we will have a new sensual persona of 'Mona Darling' to remember, because now it's Mahi who is all set to redefine the character with her sensuous style. 

3. Sizzling Begum of Saheb Biwi aur Gangster

Be it the first part of this masterpiece from the cine factory of Tigmanshu Dhulia, or the second one, both the times it was sensual appearance of sizzling Begum played by Mahi, which took away the limelight.

In both the parts it was stupendous sex appeal of Mahi which emerged as an instant gaze grabber and left the masses astonished.

4. Demure Indra of Paan Singh Tomar

It's not that Mahi is solely banking upon her prurience coefficient to make it big in the cine arena, over the years she has also proved herself as a sinewy performer.

And one of the conspicuous example of the same is, her praiseworthy performance as de-glam housewife in Paan Singh Tomar.

These days it looks like entire hottie brigade of Bollywood is piggy backing on the pony called 'versatility'. Now the newest hottie who seems to be on experimental spree is none other than sensuous hottie Mahi Gill.

If reports are to be believed then these days, Mahi is opting for such roles which are thoroughly diverse in nature.

Posters which Enraged the Masses

1. Nasha

Poonam might be on the 'Cloud 9' because of her upcoming cine flick Nasha, but it looks like just before the release of her movie she has annoyed a sect of moral cops who have failed in accepting the boldness that Poonam has shown on one of the cine posters of Nasha.

If reports are to be believed then the new poster of Poonam's debut flick has invited the vengeance of saffron brigade which pulled down and burnt the posters of Nasha in Mumbai. 

2. Hate Story

In the recent past even the poster of erotic thriller Hate Story where Bangla bombshell Paoli Dam appeared in a dare bare act infuriated certain sections of Bangla origin.

Reportedly soon after its release the poster was painted blue by the masses in the Bengal region and an appeal was also filed at Calcutta High Court against it's display. 

3. The Dirty Picture

There is no denying the fact that the excellence with which The Dirty Picture showcased the life story of Silk Smitha, no other movie could have done so.

But when the first look of the movie was launched where Vidya posed seductively along with her co-stars, it offended Silk's family which perceived that the movie would portray Silk in a bad way.

4. Jism 2

Even the poster of Sunny Leone's debut flick Jism 2 which was inspired by Felix Bendish's visual for a fashion show faced the charges of obscenity.

5. Kurbaan

Some may say that poster of Saif and Kareena, starrer Kurbaan was not that audacious as it was perceived by a few, but unfortunately it also enraged self styled moral cops who created a lot of fuss over the boldness showcased on the poster.

Good Heaven! Salman's angel/devil look in 'Bigg Boss 7' is revealed

Good Heaven! Salman`s angel/devil look in `Bigg Boss 7` is revealed

Salman Khan's angel-look in the promos of his show Bigg Boss has been inspired by his mother and sister.

While designing the angel look, I kept his mother and sister in mind as they are the two angels in his life.

Talking about the fabric, Ashley adds, `Salman loves soft and light fabrics; so keeping that in mind we have used only soft fabrics.

For the devil look, it was Salman's idea to add the trench coat.`

Big Setback: Salman Khan to be tried for culpable homicide in hit-and-run case

Big Setback: Salman Khan to be tried for culpable homicide in hit-and-run case

A Mumbai court on Wednesday framed new charges against Bollywood actor Salman Khan in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

According to reports, Khan will now be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

Khan has pleaded not guilty to the charges. However, if proven guilty, the actor might be sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Khan on Friday appeared before the Mumbai sessions court in connection with the case.

The court deferred the hearing into the case till July 24.

Khan was earlier facing the trail for rash and negligent driving, which awards the convict with a maximum sentence of two years.

However, the court handling his case, in January, accepted that the police have provided evidence that merits trying the actor for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, which awards the convict a punishment upto ten years in prison.

The case was then transferred to the sessions court as the magistrates' court did not have the jurisdiction to hear the same.

In February, Khan challenged the order and filed a revision petition, pleading that the stringent charges against him be dropped.

In 2002, the actor driving a SUV had run into a bakery in suburban Bandra, and the accident took the life of one pavement dweller while injuring four persons sleeping on the pavement outside.

After comedy, Priyadarshan-Mohanlal team up for horror

After comedy, Priyadarshan-Mohanlal team up for horror

After teaming up for numerous slapstick comedies, Malayalam film industry's legendary duo of director Priyadarshan and actor Mohanlal is for a change working together on a horror thriller.

Titled "Gitanjali", the film is already on the floor and is being shot on the outskirts of the city.

"Yes, this is a different one and we are feeling it too. But as far as an actor is concerned, his job is to act and I am doing just that. Now that we have waited this long, its just a few months more, " Mohanlal toldwhen asked about his expectations from the film.

Priyadarshan too admits that the film is certainly different from previous ventures.

"All what I have done is that I have taken four characters from the 'Manichitrathazhu' and the similarity ends there. I repeat, this is not a sequel to that, " he said while trying to manage things for the next shot.

Directed by Fazil, 1993-release "Manichitrathazhu" won the National Film Award for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment. Shobhana won best actress National Award for her portrayal of Ganga in the movie.

"All along what I have done is that I have adapted stories for my films, so this time I decided that I will do something different. This is in fact a horror film and it tells the tale of a girl whose marriage is fixed and ahead of that she develops serious mental disorder. Like in 'Manichitrathazhu', where Mohanlal makes an entry at the stroke of intermission, here too, he is doctor Sunny Joseph, a psychiatrist."

Shobana appears in just one scene where she suggests cranky psychiatrist Joseph's name after learning about the problems faced by the girl, played by Keerthi, who is about to get married and develops complications.

The other two characters from "Manichitrathazhu" adapted for "Gitanjali" are Unnithan, played by veteran character artist-comedian Innocent, and film star-turned-legislator Ganesh Kumar, who has the screen name of Dasappan.

"There are four songs and to ease things up a bit for the audience, I have included a slice of humour, " added Priyadarshan.

However, for the 56-year-old director, who is making his 86th film after starting his career in 1978, the only hindrance is incessant rain.

Looking worried, hoping to take a shot of Mohanlal before it starts pouring again, he said: "See, the continuity shot after this scene will be filmed only in August and it would be in the background of the sea, hence I have to be very careful because the sky would not be this overcast then."

The film is expected to go into post-production by the end of August and is slated for a release in October.

In 2011, the duo made a comeback of sorts when they did comedy "Arabyium, Ottakavum P. Madhavan Nairum", after a gap of eight years. It did good business at the box office.

The Priyadarshan-Mohanlal team churned out hits like "Boeing Boeing", "Thalavattam", "Vellanakalude Nadu", "Chithram", "Vandanam", "Kilukkam", "Mithunam" and `Thenmavin Kombath" and they are listed as the biggest earners in Malayalam filmdom.

Now all eyes are on "Gitanjali" -- whether it would re-create the same magic that the duo is known for.

My biggest down was 'Shoebite'

My biggest down was `Shoebite`

Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar, who got an opportunity to direct megastar Amitabh Bachchan in "Shoebite", says his biggest down is that film, which is Big B's milestone performance, is not getting released.

So far the director had two releases - "Yahaan" (2005) and "Vicky Donor" (2012) and his "Madras Cafe", a political thriller, is coming out Aug 23. In between, he made "Shoebite", which is trapped in controversy over its rights putting its release in peril.

"My biggest down was 'Shoebite'. It is very close to my heart, " Sircar told.

"Whenever it comes out, I can say it is Mr. Bachchan's milestone performance. This is one of his best performances. It's unfortunate it didn't release, but after that down I don't care about anything."

If not for me, they should do something for Mr. Bachchan, he feels.

"Our film is like our child and I feel even production house should treat them the same way. For me, 'Shoebite' not getting release is like a miscarriage. I had cried a lot and I was very upset about it, " he said.

Although he got his due with his film on sperm donation "Vicky Donor", he takes accolades with a pinch of realism.

Taking a pragmatic look on success and failure, he said: "The industry dances with you in your success, but if your next film fails, again you come down to zero. So, I don't care much.

"Everybody started respecting me after 'Vicky Donor'. Now I don't know...if I'll make a flop film, the respect will be gone and to regain that respect, again I will have to make a 'Vicky Donor'."

His "Madras Cafe", his second film with producer John Abraham as a producer, is his maiden attempt at a spy film and he is confident of showing new things in the film.

John plays lead role in the film.

He said: "I personally feel people have not seen real spy film yet, so I think the audience will get to see real spy film through 'Madras Cafe'. John is not the hero, he is playing a character in the film. It's a very serious movie."

"I don't say I am a master of such genre. This is my first attempt to make a real spy film... For the first time, the Indian audience will see how a real intelligence or RAW works. How much I will be successful I don't know, but I want people to educate a bit about Sri Lanka before watching the film, " he added.

What about the unusual title "Madras Cafe"?

He said: "There was a lot of debate with the title but I was adamant and I have cleared that in the promo itself. 'Jaffna' was earlier title, but when we were working on the script, I thought 'Madras Cafe' is apt and goes with the plot."
