Kareena Kapoor to play Marilyn Monroe in Madhur Bhandarkar's next film. The movie is about the life of the successful hollywood actress whose career goes spiraling downwards.  Apparently, Madhur had wanted to make the film for very long but things weren't working out. Now that they have, he is ready to start off with it. He didn't want anything to go wrong with the film. Marilyn has had a controversial life but he didn't want it to come out looking wrong. However, Madhur seems confident that he won't go wrong now, thanks to all the research he's done on the actress. He read up as much as he could about her life and also watched a lot of documentaries based on her.  Once he was certain that he could make her story into a film well, he signed on Kareena for the role.

Bipasha Basu gets to do 9 different looks in her new film Pankh. She says, “It's not nine roles as has been wrongly reported. It's just nine looks.I play a character that doesn't really exist. I'm the young hero Maradona Rebeillo's fantasy figure. Every look is a reflection on his mood. When he's mellow I come out looking like an angel. He sees me the way he wants to see me. I loved the script and the director Sudipto Chattopadhyay's passion.” The director wanted to name the character Bipasha Basu. " Yes, he was very keen that I be called Bipasha in Pankh. But I'm not at all comfortable with my name being used for any character. I'd rather stick to the character's name Nandini, ” says Bipasha.

Deepika Padukone can pretty much be complimented for the variety of roles that she has been picking up ever since playing the dual role of a Diva and a bubby girl in 'Om Shanti Om'.  This was followed by a confident single working woman in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', a model/fighter in 'Chandni Chowk To China', an independent girl who takes some time to listen to her heart in 'Love Aaj Kal' and very recently, a young urban corporate woman in 'Karthik Calling Karthik'. What has been noticed though, especially in her last couple of films, is the entirely non-filmy style that she has adopted for her character. Has that been a conscious move? "Yes, whether it is 'Love Aaj Kal' or 'Karthik Calling Karthik', the performances were meant to be very real and relatable. That was the requirement of the film and the characters. I had to adapt to a different acting style which was quite a task, especially while working on 'Karthik Calling Karthik' because I was also working on 'Housefull' around the same time. Now 'Karthik Calling Karthik' was a little understated,” says Deepika.

The word was finally leaked out that Hrithik had crooned for his latest offering, Kites, the fans obviously are  eager to hear him. He admits that he had tried to improve his singing skills and was nervous when it came to singing. Apparently he is also worried by the audience reaction! "It was time to face the music, literally!" the actor says. "I have tried to sing for Kites and the idea was to be honest to the grammar and hence there is no lip-syncing involved here. I was quite embarrassed and obviously nervous. I am hoping that I will not judged by the telecast sound quality, " says Hrithik. The actor usually looks up to his director dad for opinions and acting advise. This time around he had his uncle there to guide and tutor him. Music composer Rajesh Roshan is touted to be usually brutal with his opinion but before he could say anything post-release the audience has already passed a judgment! They have fallen for it hook, line and sinker and are praising Hrithik for his singing.

 Ranbir Kapoor has played many different characters starting from a lover-boy to a Casanova to an honest salesman; but for the first time ever he will be seen in a fantasy-adventure act in Pepsi The Game's Level I that went on air this week on TV. In an industry where it is easy for stars to demand for body doubles, Ranbir chose to perform his own stunts, something that he has never done before. Sources reveal that in spite of having a water phobia, Ranbir performed an entire underwater sequence, which took over 4-hours to shoot, with ease and like a true professional. In fact, he did not even let the production crew know about his phobia till after the sequence was completed. While performing yet another tough sequence of climbing a high wall to pull out a few daggers, Ranbir hurt his hand.
