Amitabh Bachchan celebrates His Birthday Today

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is celebrating his Birthday today, the 11th of October 07.

Amitabh Bachchan was born on October 11, 1942 in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. He is a renowned Indian film actor. He is immensely popular, in the Indian sub-continent and the Middle-East, due to his acting style and also his signature voice. He has been constantly voted as one of the top actors in the Indian film industry. He is the winner of best actor award in 3 different decades and is one of the few Indian actors enjoying international fame, as indicated by his
statue being in Madame Tussauds wax museum in London.

As usual there was a huge crowd of reporters, journalists, public and fans outside his bungalow in Juhu "Pratiksha" early in the morning today. The crowd went totally bersek as soon as the big B made an appearance outside to greet his fans and have a word. So much so, that things got a little ugly as there was a lot of jostling and the women journalists were molested in the whole affair.

Dozens of other fans in his home town, Allahbad,lit firecrackers and danced on streets alongside Bachchan's posters to wish their hero a happy birthday and offered prayers for his good health and happiness.

Apparently, Amitabh wanted a very low key affair and tried to evade the public. But, being a superstar of his caliber, he just cannot escape from it, can he? Well, it's tough being a superstar.

Mumbai Mirror caught up with Ranbir and Sonam Kapoor on the sets of Saawariya and you have to read this highly entertaining article.They’re 20-somethings, and evidently don’t believe in restraint. “Hell, I gave a TV interview where I said that my sister believes the sun shines from my nether regions,” laughs Sonam. “They will edit it, won’t they?” Chances are slim, you reply. Which draws whoops of laughter. “At least I didn’t say a#*e!”Is this pressure talking, or joy? “No, Ranbir has truckloads of pressure on him, I don’t have that much pressure,” she replies cheerfully.But she too has a lineage to live up to, with Anil Kapoor as father. “I don’t have to live up to anything as much as Ranbir. He has the whole Raj Kapoor banner to hold up,” she insists.

Though the movie didn’t do well in India but it has got an entry to the Oscar’s.There were many other good movies that could have been nominated instead!)The movie depicts a violent family saga starring Amitabh Bachchan, and has been nominated as India’s official entry for Oscar award for the best foreign movie category.
This is the third time that a film by Vidhu Vinod Chopra will be going to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Earlier his short non-fiction film ‘An Encounter with Faces’ was one of the first Indian films to be nominated for an Oscar in 1980. In 1989, Parinda was sent to the Oscars as India’s official entry. This definitely is not one of his best films!

This is going to be his first directorial Debut. Will this movie be as hit in the hindi version as the Tamil one? Guess only time will tell.

Shahrukh rains gifts on co-stars

Shahrukh Khan is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that his upcoming release Om Shanti Om stay in the news till its release this Diwali. He uses every occasion to promote the film, and the Om Shanti Om T-shirt he wore at the recent T20 Cricket World Cup final between India and Pakistan is one such examples. He is in the news again for giving gifts to the cast of his much-hyped film Om Shanti Om.

It is said that Shahrukh is sending expensive gift hampers as a token of thanks to over 35 actors who acted in Om Shanti Om. It is said that many actors acted in the film for free, and hence Shahrukh has decided to thank them in his own style.

Kareena Shahid Kapoor Break up! More Media Hype

Everybody knows by now that before every movie is released, the main acter and actress will be talked about, with either break ups or involvements or some other such publicity stunt to garner interest for people to go and see the movie.
They have tried this formula for ages now and we all can see through it. Is it all really necessary? Whom are they trying to fool, specially with a couple like Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor! They are both so much in love with each other that it's impossible to get them separated. I really find this ridiculous! With her new movie "Tashan" slated to release soon, These rumours have been floating around for quite some time, pairing her opposite Saif Ali Khan! Poor guy has enough controversy in his life already, not to add another one. It's really difficult to even imagine him with anyone like Kareena kapoor. She's too young for him anyway!
Don't you think it's time Bollywood tried some different tactics to showcase or advertise their movies with?
