Hritik’s return in Krrish with spectacular stunts proves that Bollywood is no less than Hollywood.  Krrish was one of the most awaited film of the year and comeback film after Farhan Akthar’s Lakshya two years ago.   It is the third film made by the Roshan father-son jodi, after the box office superhits, Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai and Koi... Mil Gaya

Going by the dismal fate of the latest Rock Stars concert abroad, it may be a long time before any organizer or Bollywood celebrity dares venture into a world tour. The last stop for the Rock Stars entourage - Salman Khan, John Abraham, Mallika Sherawat, Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor - last week turned out to be a nightmare that the stars aren't likely to forget. "The show at Wembley in London had to be cancelled because there was hardly anyone there to see   so-called Rock Stars. 500-600 people turned up to watch great entourage.

As popular Bollywood playback singer Udit Narayan is keen to arrive at a compromise with a woman who claims to be his first wife, Bihar state women's commission Wednesday gave him more time to depose before it to respond to her charges. Udit Narayan Wednesday failed to appear before the commission for the fourth time in two months after the commission registered a case of breach of marriage against him and issued a notice on the basis of a complaint filed by Ranjana Narayan in April. Ranjana, a resident of Nirmali village in Supaul district, claimed that she is the first wife of the popular singer. According to her, they had married in 1984 and his second wife Deepa Narayan was not his legal wife.  Udit Narayan, on his part, has denied Ranjana's allegation. He has told media that he did not know "any Ranjana Narayan" and had never married her, saying it was a conspiracy to defame him.

Saif and Rosa always seemed like a cozy couple to everyone but now we hear that Chote Nawab is getting insecure about his lady love. Saif has also recently been seen alongside girlfriend Rosa in an advertisement. The beautiful Italian model Rosa has been offered quite a few ad films; unfortunately Saif does not seem too happy about his sweetheart getting involved in the glam industry. Even though he has studied abroad and is very liberal in attitude, in his heart of hearts he continues to be a traditional Indian male who would want his girl to stay away from the glare-of-the-world.   However Rosa seems in no mood to comply and is quite interested in being a part of bollywood. 

The Pakistani embassy in New Delhi has cancelled veteran Bollywood lyricist and writer Javed Akhtar's visa.  Akhtar was to be a part of a 20-member Bollywood delegation who were to attend a television channel's show in Pakistan in aid of earthquake victims. " I don't know the reason why my visa was canceled," said a bemused Akhtar. Among the many other members whose visas were accepted were Saif Ali Khan, Shabana Azmi and Urmila Matondkar.   "I was singled out and the best person to answer this question (why his visa was cancelled) would be the Pakistan foreign office," said Akhtar. All other members of the delegation have decided to cancel their visit after this move, as they felt it was wrong for the Pakistan government to cancel Akhtar's visa.

A local court in Madurai has issued arrest warrants against Bollywood actresses Shilpa Shetty and Reema Sen in connection with the publication of their 'obscene' pictures in a Tamil eveninger.  City Judicial Magistrate Elangovan has directed the Mumbai police commissioner to arrest the actresses as early as possible and produce them in court. Dakshninammorthy, a city based advocate, had filed a case against the actresses, and Murugan, the editor of Tamil Murasu, for publication of the 'obscene' pictures, thus violating laws including Section 109 of the Indian Penal Code (Indecent representation of women),  The actresses, through their lawyers, contended that they were not in a position to come to the court as they were busy shooting. They also claimed that they were not aware of the pictures published in the eveninger without their permission.

Protestors belonging to Christian organizations staged a noisy demonstration in front of Prasad's IMAX theatre in Hyderabad and broke the booking counter's glass panes, forcing the management to stop screening the controversial film The Da Vinci Code on Friday afternoon.  A group of 50 volunteers of All India Christian United Front gathered in front of the theatre, holding placards and raising slogans. Theatre management cancelled the show that was to begin at 3.15 pm. Incidentally, Prasad's IMAX was the only theatre to start showing the film today, as other theatres in the city and elsewhere in the state could not take up screening at short notice
