Soon, it was all you would hear — in local trains, on your Facebook feed, over lunch in the office cafeteria and in your SMS inbox — each instance starting with: this is the best Rajnikanth joke ever.
The story is one you’ve seen before — a smart-talking con man takes off with suitcases of money after tricking three very gullible women.
MUMBAI (Reuters) – Even before the interview has begun, Farhan Akhtar’s publicist has one request — please don’t ask him whether he enjoys acting or directing more, because he’s tired of answering that one.
No wonder, it’s all anyone seems to ask him these days, especially after the success of “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”.
Spending Sunday evening standing in a dusty, arid place, waiting more than three hours for one person to show up, is certainly not my idea of fun. However, when the person in question is Tom Cruise, the equation changes.
Mr Cruise was to turn up at a red carpet event in Mumbai, organised before a fan screening of his latest film — “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”
MUMBAI (Reuters) – Movie actor and director Dev Anand, known for his joie de vivre as Bollywood’s “evergreen hero,” has died aged 88, an aide said, bringing the end to an era of Indian cinema.
Anand, whose last film, “Chargesheet,” was released in September, was in London with his son, Suneil, when he died on Saturday from a heart attack, aide Mohan Churiwala told Reuters.
In one scene in Milan Luthria’s “The Dirty Picture”, the protagonist, determined to make life miserable for one particularly pesky journalist, stages an impromptu dance performance in front of the journalist’s house — gyrating atop her car and biting her lip suggestively. Soon, a crowd gathers, there are wolf whistles and catcalls, and the police are called in to control the chaos that ensues.
Wearing nothing but a skimpy, midriff-baring blouse, pants and over-the-top sunglasses, Silk, as she’s called in the film is all smiles, and it’s obvious she’s loving every moment. You could say the same about Vidya Balan in the film. She’s having a blast playing Silk and it shows in every frame of the film.
It is said that each Mumbai resident passes through the city’s iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus at least once. On Sunday, the railway station was the setting for 200 Mumbaikars to do something out of the ordinary.

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Actor Ranveer Singh was the dark horse of 2010, surprising viewers with his refreshing performance in “Band Baaja Baaraat”.
Exactly a year later, he is ready with his second film, with the same team and under the same banner — Yash Raj Films. “Ladies vs Ricky Bahl” has Singh portraying a con man who takes on different avatars to dupe women.
If you want to watch the rockstars in action in Imtiaz Ali’s “Rockstar“, look out for the “Kun Faya Kun” number in the first half — both A. R. Rahman and Ranbir Kapoor are at their best here — the lilting melody of the song and Ranbir’s range of expressions remind you of how good the two are at what they do.
They are the stars of “Rockstar” — the reason why you leave the movie with a somewhat positive feeling. Everything else, including the script, the direction and other performances are found wanting, much to your disappointment.
MUMBAI (Reuters) – In an unprecedented move, Indian TV news channels have drawn up a set of guidelines for media coverage of the birth of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s baby.
The Bollywood actress is expected to give birth to her first child in November, and the Indian media has followed her pregnancy obsessively ever since father-in-law and actor Amitabh Bachchan announced it in June.
