It's election time. Celebrities are being used to urge citizens to come out and vote. But Indian cinema's icon Amitabh Bachchan, for whom publicity has been a way of life, says a democratic right like voting doesn't need to be promoted. The Bachchan family has always flaunted its election ink-marked nails with pride. "I don't think voting needs to be promoted. It is a democratic right, and we should do it," said the 71-year-old actor, who once won the Lok Sabha election from Allahabad in 1984.

Sources say that Hrithik Roshan pulled out of Karan Johar's upcoming film 'Shuddhi' as he was eyeing a substantial portion of the film's profits. Karan Johar's dream project 'Shuddhi' has faced enough hurdles by now. The film has had its share of casting problems right from the start.  For starters, Hrithik Roshan, who was earlier signed to play the lead in the film, decided to quit the project. It is said that he left the film due to personal reasons, but sources now say that this is not the case."The actor quit the film as he was not happy with the profit-sharing deal between him and Karan Johar. Hrithik had asked for 40 per cent of the film's total profit. But Karan Johar didn't agree to this. This prompted Hrithik to opt out of 'Shuddhi'," says a source. It may be pointed out that the KJo has still not finalised the film's cast, even though the project was announced more than a year ago. 'Shuddhi', to be directed by Karan Malhotra, is supposed to go on the floors in the mid-2014 and is slated to release next year.

Producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala wants to dedicate the opening song of his upcoming film 'Heropanti' to all the flute players. Nadiadwala, who is introducing Jackie Shroff's son Tiger in his home production, wants to dedicate the first song of the film - 'Whistle Baja' to flutists. The filmmaker feels that they (flute players) should be given some credit for keeping the tune alive for last 30 years, which could have been forgotten.
