Genelia D'Souza is the lead cast opposite John Abraham in the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster Kaakha Kaakha. First it was Asin who had been signed. But then she chose to give away her dates to the Salman Khan starrer Ready directed by Anees Bazmi. Desperate for a heroine, Vipul Shah's spirits soared when his London Dreams heroine Katrina Kaif was suddenly with free dates after the postponement of Dostana 2. But she chose a Yashraj film with Imran instead. Matters came to a point where the team was ready to shoot without a heroine in the hope that a suitable match for John will show up next. Luckily Genelia d'Souza has now stepped in to the empty space. Lately things have not been moving too smoothingly the perky Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na actress. John and Genelia got to know one another well during the cellphone ad that they did together.

It's just that it happens so very rarely. After all, it isn't everyday that you hear of the synopsis of an under-production Hollywood flick being startlingly similar to that of a 2005 Bollywood flick. Now, we're not saying Just Go With It is copied or inspired by Salman-Sush-Kat starrer Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya, just that the coincidences are quite a few. Consider this... Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya starred Salman Khan, Sushmita Sen, Katrina Kaif, Arshad Warsi and Eesha Koppikhar. It released in 2005. It is about about Samir (Khan), a successful doctor who is a ladies' man. Afraid of commitment, he tells every girl who tries to get close to him that he's married. They back off. The tables are turned when he meets Sonia (Kaif), who learns that he's 'married' and wants to meet his family. He gets his dutiful nurse, Naina (Sen) to stand in and pretend to be his wife and her nephew and niece to be his kids for a short while and even arranges for a 'fake' divorce to take place so he can marry the girl he loves. Just Go With It releases in 2011 and stars Adam Sandler, Brooklyn Decker, Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman and Heidi Montag.

In spite of the security threat Ram Gopal Varma is at this very moment moving around in Hyderabad unescorted. He is visiting his mother in the city. And won't stay away because of the threat.  He isn't being brave, just practical. “This is not the first time I'm under threat. It has happened to me on several occasions. When in the history of assassinations have security guards been able to save anyone? The one who is determined to kill you will do.” Supporters of an alleged outlaw Ubala Reddy who figures prominently in Rakta Charitra are not amused by the way they think their leader must have been portrayed in Varma's film.

As reported earlier that Additi Gupta who is seen in Zee TV's 'Sanjog Se Bani Sangini' gets irritated when asked to wear a heavy costume and recently in the sequence of Pihu's wedding, she was asked to wear such a heavy costume which was a terrible problem for her to carry it. But as the scene demanded, she had done with that costume. As the costume was not comfortable, her temper was somehow not with her and Additi failed to keep control on her temper. Talking about her lost temper Additi says, “It was horrible to wear such a heavy costume and extension to hair, I was totally irritated as the track was going on for past two days. But everyone used to pamper me when I was in the costume because it was really very unmanageable to handle the costume for whole day and in that irritation, I use to scold my poor hairdresser. As whenever I feel uncomfortable with the hair or with the dress, I use to yell at her for making me more uncomfortable.” added Additi Gupta.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra of Munna Bhai series and 3 Idiots fame, has signed Hollywood star Nicolas Cage for his next film titled 'Broken Horses'. The movie is slated to start shooting by early next year. A source was quoted stating that Vidhu Vinod is now in Los Angeles for some work on 'Broken Horses'. During his stay in Mumbai also, the filmmaker was in touch with his Hollywood contacts for signing the cast and crew. Chopra will be producing the movie in association with Reliance Big Pictures and it is said to be a gangster film. There is a report that American actor Mickey Rourke has also been approached to play a vital role in 'Broken Horses'. The movie is supposedly inspired from Vidhu Vinod Chopra's award-winning 1989 Indian movie 'Parinda', which starred Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.
