What Gifts Will Vidya Balan Get On Her Wedding Day?

The actor is all set to tie the knot with her beloved beau SRK- Siddharth Roy Kapur – on December 14. And since the couple has already decided on the guest list, we wonder about the kind of gifts Vidya’s friends and well-wishers are going to shower her with.

Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur will be pronounced husband and wife very soon. The bar is brimming with champagne, the tables are set, Balan’s designer friend Sabyasachi Mukherjee has given his stamp of approval to the bridal trousseau – and now the only way we can make this event even spicier is by speculating on the presents the to-be-bride will receive on her big day. The Kahaani babe is the industry’s sweetheart. And don’t forget that she’s also a great sport, which is one of the reasons we feel that Vidya’s admirers will take absolute liberties to get a li’l cheeky with the sexy dulhan.

It’s not very often that you get Aamir Khan talking about films that he isn’t promoting. The actor, who has just returned from a trip to Bali to celebrate wife Kiran Rao’s birthday, was shocked to hear the story that he would play the lead character in the next Munnabhai movie, replacing Sanjay Dutt.

“It’s not true. I don’t even know whether Rajkumar Hirani is making Munnabhai 3 or not,” said Aamir in an interview. “As far as I’m concerned, I think only Sanju can do full justice to the character of Munnabhai. He is the ideal casting for Munnabhai. The way Sanju played the character in part one and two is extremely commendable. It has left an indelible impression on my mind. I wouldn’t want any other actor to do Munnabhai.”

I am not competing with Sajid, says Farah Khan

They are both into filmmaking, but there's no room for rivalry between Sajid Khan and his sister Farah Khan. Instead, choreographer-turned-director Farah, who often directs dance sequences for Sajid, says their work gives them a chance to spend quality time together.

"When I go to choreograph for him, I feel I get to spend some more time with my brother because now I am busy with my children while Sajid has his own life," Farah said here Monday at the launch of TV show 'Veera'.

"So, at least when we work together, we spend quality time with each other. I don't think there is any competitiveness where Sajid is concerned," Farah said.

Farah has directed films like 'Om Shanti Om' and 'Main Hoon Na' while Sajid is credited for entertainers like 'Heyy Babyy', 'Housefull' and 'Housefull 2'. Farah says they share mutual admiration for each other's work, and Sajid even stands up for her whenever someone attacks her films.

Durga Puja Made Happy For HIV Patients

Imagine you waking up to the rhythmic beatings of dhak on a hospital bed. Imagine the smell of delicacies and hit numbers from Bollywood flicks filling the air when you're surviving on IV drops. And imagine screams of "aschhe bochhor abar hobe" from the immersion procession making you think whether you can endure the pain for another year.

What makes you shudder even in your imagination is the life of a group of patients undergoing treatment at the School of Tropical Medicine, which primarily treats HIV cases. Most of them don't hope to do what everyone does on Puja days any more as they're fighting a losing battle against the killer disease.

"So what they cannot step out, we can always step in," thought D Ashis, general secretary of Medical Bank. Thus began a unique initiative in which the organization started carrying the spirit of Durga Puja on the hospital campus. On the occasion of Panchami on Friday, doctors, attendants and members of the group shared some light moments with the patients to lessen their burden of pain. Sarees, dhotis and sweets were also distributed to bring a feeling of newness to their otherwise agonizing lives.

"With so many people caring for us, I feel like living again. Otherwise, the way we - the HIV patients - have been stigmatized makes me feel like a burden on the society," said Asmina Begumwith pain creased all over her face.

Yash Chopra: The Director With A Musical Soul

Yash Chopra: The director with a musical soulYash Chopra was one of the first to tell the story of an anti-hero – Amitabh Bachchan in Deewar – a path many were afraid to tread in the 70s. When Salim-Javed wrote the script, they did not leave any space for songs. But Chopra insisted on having at least three songs in the film. The songs were the only let down in the tight narrative. Apparently Chopra told Salim-Javed, ‘Film sookhi lag rahi hai’, and the writer duo replied, “Then let us name the film geeli deewar (wet wall)!”

It’s not that Chopra never made a songless film. His 1969 film Ittefaq with Rajesh Khanna had no songs. But he was someone who always wanted his work to be remembered as much for its music as for its script and characters.

Almost two decades after Deewar, he cast yet another upcoming actor as anti-hero – Shahrukh Khan in Darr – and this tale of an obsessive lover was underlined by great music, including the superhit song Jaadu teri nazar sung by Udit Narayan.The soundtrack of 1981 love triangle Silsila was a runaway hit, but the film was one of Chopra’s biggest duds at the box office.

An Australian politician has questioned Prime Minister Julia Gillard's decision to award an Order of Australia to iconic Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar for his contribution to sport.

Federal Independent MP Rob Oakshott who expressed his love for Little Master, said the special award should not be used for diplomatic gain, the ABC news reported. 

"I love Sachin Tendulkar, I love cricket. But I just have a problem with soft diplomacy as you call it," he said, adding "Getting in on the act of the Australian honours." 

Oakeshott said the Order should be focused on recognising Australians doing community work instead. 

"I'm not going to die in a ditch over it...but it's about the integrity of the honours list which should be for Australians," he said.

Doesnt Jab Tak Hai Jaan Song Saans Sound Like A Mouth Freshener Ad?

After hearingSaans, we think it easily qualifies as a potential deodorant or mouth freshener advertisementAs Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif get into an intense romantic mode in Saans from Jab Tak Hai Jaan, we are quite amused with the way Gulzar has played around with the wordsaans(breath) and khushbu (smell) in the song (with all due respect to the veteran lyricist).And imagine the amount of fun we had translating it into English and dissecting the lyrics! So while we aren’t quite sure if the song is a breath of fresh air, we think it could definitely qualify as a cool jingle for a mouth freshener or deodorant commercial!

But as the ever sweet and charming Katrina said in a recent press con that Saans is a song that you need to hear over and over again so that it grows on you, we think we will give this romantic track benefit of the doubt, just for you darling!

So, why is Aishwarya not talking to the Indian media? Why is she not appearing on prime chat shows on Indian television? Does she think people back home are too obsessed with her weight, and those abroad are not talking about that aspect of her physical appearance? Or is it the big bucks here?
