Happy Deepavali 2010

Deepavali, the 'Festival of Lights' is symbolic of 'victory of good over evil, of light over darkness'. It is also the victory of peace over conflicts and wars. Darkness symbolizes ignorance and all other negative forces and feelings. So celebrating Diwali with lights dispels ignorance and all negative aspects of life, at least symbolically. That means we have to strive hard to drive away all negative forces and enrich our lives with everything positive. Let us celebrate the 'Festival of Lights' and try to build better lives for ourselves and all others!

HAPPY DEEPAVALI!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand married in Hindu ceremony in India

Katy Perry 1
American singer Katy Perry, 26, and her comedian fiancé Russell Brand, 35, have married in a Hindu marriage ceremony under heavy security arrangements in Ranthambhore National Park, India's leading tiger park. The couple exchanged their marriage vows on Saturday surrounded by a small group of friends and family, in the Hindu marriage rituals conducted by a Hindu priest at the luxury tented camp Aman-i-Khas. Perry’s parents Mary and Keith Hudson, and Brand’s mother Barbara Brand were present.

There was tight security with private security guards stationed at the resort and other nearby hotels where guests and the couple are staying for the six-day wedding celebration.

Perry and Brand began their wedding by worshipping a statue of Lord Ganesha, the Hindu God, as practiced by Hindus before the start of any new venture, and the pair walked to a specially designed mandap, as usual in Hindu weddings, and sat on ornate thrones as a Hindu priest performed the ceremonial rituals.

As is usual in most Indian marriages, the couple walked around a sacred fire seven times reciting Sanskrit mantras and tying a special wedding scarf together to symbolize their life partnership. Brand stooped low to touch Perry’s parents' feet requesting permission to marry Perry.

According to reports, about 40 guests of the couple have been staying since Wednesday at the camp, where tents cost £600 a night, and the neighboring £300 a night Sher Bagh resort.

The celebrity guests, who attended the wedding, included comedian David Baddiel and his wife Morwenn Banks, and on the invitation list were rapper P Diddy, Jonathan Ross, David Williams and pop star Rihanna.

A spokesperson said that though the couple had a Hindu wedding and sat patiently through an hour-long havan, “The very private and spiritual ceremony, attended by the couple’s closest family and friends, was performed by a Christian minister and long time friend of the Hudson (Perry) family.”

Mallika Sherawat's Hisss - Preview

Mallika Sherawat Hiss Thrill movie

Hisss, aka ‘Nagin: The Snake Woman’, directed by Jennifer Lynch with Mallika Sherawat playing the lead role as Naagin, is slated for release on October 22, 2010 in India. Sherawat, who now lives in the United States, has been in India to promote the film. At the Cannes Film Festival, Mallika Sherawat promoted the film by posing with a giant African Rock Python (22 feet/ 6.7 meters long) python on the red carpet.

The film Hisss, produced by Govind Menon, Vikram Singh, Ratan Jain and William Sees Keenan, also features Irrfan Khan, Jeff Doucette and Divya Dutta. The film is edited by American film editor Tony Ciccone, and special effects designer Robert Kurtzman developed the look of the Snake Woman for Sherawat.

Mallika Sherawat makes her musical debut on the film's soundtrack alongside Julian Lennon, and Shruti Haasan sings and appears in a promotional video with music by Dave Kushner for the film.

The film was simultaneously shot in Hindi and English, and it will be released with other versions in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. A substantial part of the film was shot in the jungles of Kerala State in India, and the tribal leader of Thalikakal in Kerala, Mooppan Raghavan and several members of his tribe were recruited as extras for the film. The film was also shot in locations in Mumbai, Chennai, Madh Island, a near-shore island of Mumbai.

The story is about the curse of a Naagin, a shape-transforming Cobra Goddess, half-woman and half-snake, and if humans desecrate or violates it, they are doomed to suffer the curses of the snake woman with death and infertility.

The story depends on the civilizations that flourished in the Indus Valley, where the inhabitants sculpted the image of the shape-shifting snakes that were said to inhabit a mysterious temple far away deep within the jungles in the legendary spice forests of the Malabar Coast. And according to Hisss, from here the legend travelled across India, and the Far East along the silk route. In 2008, an American man George, packing high tech gear and evil intentions, traveled into this forbidden forest, here he captures a male cobra of the size of large python when he is at his weakest while mating. But George does not realize horror and destruction awaiting him.

Hisss: Mallika Sherawat's best on-screen kiss


Mallika Sherawat's best on-screen kiss has been with a snake, the most out-spoken actress tells NDTV's Anupama Chopra in this video about her soon to be released movie ‘Hisss’. Chopra asks to Mallika about her transition from a Bollywood actress to a slimy slithering snake in Hisss, an Indo-American film produced around the very popular Indian myth of the Nagin.

Balenciaga, a fashion house founded by Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga in 1918, is known for their uncompromising standards, and is now owned by Gucci, a subsidiary of PPR, the French multinational company.

It is said that Jacqueline Kennedy upset President John F. Kennedy by buying Balenciaga's expensive creations; because he feared that the American public might think the purchases were too lavish, and hence Jackie’s haute couture bills were discreetly paid by her father-in-law, Joseph Kennedy.

Now Balenciaga is the favourite of many Hollywood celebrities, for instance, they designed the dresses worn by Jennifer Connelly and Nicole Kidman to the 2006 Academy Awards, and the wedding gown Kidman wore for her recent marriage to Keith Urban. Another celebrity, singer Kylie Minogue, also wore a Balenciaga dress for her ‘Slow’ and ‘Red Blooded Woman’ music videos and for her concert tour.

Currently the brand Balenciaga is most famous for its line of motorcycle-inspired handbags, with their retail outlets in New York, Los Angeles, Costa Mesa, and another one in Las Vegas inside Caesers Palace, selling only accessories. In recent times the Balenciaga line also included jodhpurs, fitted blazers, beaded embellished scarves and other multicultural mixes.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in India

Photo: HRH The Duchess of Cornwall met with the staff at the British High Commission and Department for International Development (DFID) in New Delhi on Monday, 4 October 2010.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are in India from 2 to 5 October 2010.

The 63-year-old Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall is the second wife of Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.

On 4 July 1973, Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, at the Guards Chapel, Wellington Barracks in London and the couple had two children, Tom and Laura. Andrew Parker Bowles initiated divorce proceedings against Camilla following the admission by Prince Charles that he had been in a long-term extra-marital affair with Mrs. Parker Bowles, and the divorce was finalized on 3 March 1995.

The relationship between Camilla and Prince Charles began when they met at a polo match in 1970. The engagement of Camilla and Prince Charles was announced on 10 February 2005. After the wedding, the couple travelled to the Prince's country home in Scotland, Birkhall, and carried out their first public duties as a couple during their honeymoon.

After becoming Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla automatically acquired rank as the second highest female in the United Kingdom Order of Precedence, after the Queen. Initially, the Duchess of Cornwall's royal duties involved accompanying the Prince of Wales on his official obligations.

Based on her marriage status and other considerations, Camilla has been referred to as Miss Camilla Rosemary Shand (17 July 1947 to 4 July 1973), Mrs. Andrew Parker Bowles (4 July 1973 to 3 March 1995), Mrs. Camilla Parker Bowles (3 March 1995 to 9 April 2005), and from 9 April 2005 as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall (in Scotland from 9 April 2005: Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Rothesay).

Because the title 'Princess of Wales' remains strongly associated with the late Princes Diana, the Princess of Wales, Camilla is referred to with the feminine form of her husband's subsidiary title, Duke of Cornwall.

The Enthiran Fever Grips Rajini Fans

And finally waiting for Enthiran is over for Rajinikanth fans who flocked to theaters in thousands right from the early morning. The most important question being quoted as making the rounds in Chennai is who has got a ticket for Enthiran and who has not!

Enthiran (Robot in Hindi and Robo in Telugu), reported to be the costliest ever film in Asia, was opened to a global release on Friday at 3,000 screens across the world, making it the first Indian film to have been launched globally on such a scale.

Enthiran has many more firsts to its credit: It is the first time that Rajnikanth has paired with Aishwarya Rai, the first time Kalanidhi Maran has produced a film, though the Sun TV chief has been buying and distributing films. And Enthiran is the first Indian film to blend the latest in Hollywood film production technology with an Indian film.

The Hong Kong martial arts choreographer and film director Yuen Woo-ping, the stunt coordinator for Enthiran, makes his entry into Indian cinema with this Rajnikanth film. Yuen Woo-ping has been action choreographer/ stunt advisor for successful films such as The Matrix (1999), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), The Matrix Revolutions (2003), Kung Fu Hustle (2004), House of Fury (2005), Fearless (2006) and The Forbidden Kingdom (2008).

The animatronics in Enthiran is taken care of by Stan Winston Studios, founded by Stanley Winston (1946 - 2008), who was best known for his work in the Terminator series, the Jurassic Park series, Aliens, the Predator series, Iron Man and Edward Scissorhands. Films such as Terminator Salvation (2009) and James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) were also given animatronics by Stan Winston Studios.

Industrial Light & Magic that took care of the visual and special effects of Enthiran is an Academy Award-winning motion picture visual effects company founded by George Lucas, when he discovered that the special effects department at 20th Century Fox was shut down after he was given the green light for his production of the movie Star Wars. Industrial Light & Magic has been behind the special effects of recent films such as Confessions of a Shopaholic, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Surrogates and Avatar all released in 2009, and Iron Man 2 and The Last Airbender released in 2010.

News reports say that Rajni fans were queuing up for the first-day-first-show tickets from 5 AM in the morning, and tickets costing between Rs 80 and Rs120 were being sold in black markets for anything between Rs 2,500 and Rs 3,000.

Sci-Fi: Endhiran and Terminator Salvation

Rajinikant in Enthiran

Christian Bale in Terminator Salvation

This seems to be a case of BLATANT COPYCAT act! But who is copying whom? The answer is obvious!

The Indian Sci-Fi film Enthiran co-written and directed by S. Shankar, and featuring Superstar Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles, is going to be released worldwide on 1 October 2010 along with its dubbed versions: Robot in Hindi and Robo in Telugu.

But the American Sci-Fi film “Terminator Salvation” directed by McG and starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington (The fourth installment in the Terminator series), was released on May 21, 2009 in the United States and Canada, followed by early June releases in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

So, obviously Enthiran did not exist when Terminator Salvation was produced or released!

This is not the only picture that looks similar in appearance in both the films. You can find many more on the internet, especially on photo-sharing sites like Flickr.com

Enthiran (Robot) Exclusive HD Movie Trailer


The city of Chennai is getting ready, like the rest of the country and various other centers in the world where the fans of Rajnikant films are waiting for the release of the science fiction movie Enthiran (Robot). The tickets have been sold out within minutes of opening booking and fans are scrambling for tickets.

The film is full of special effects, animation and the latest technologies in Sci-Fi film production technology. Excepting a few scenes of dance and songs, the entire film has plenty of special effects. The producer Shankar has opted for 'Light Stage', a technique adopted in filming Hollywood blockbuster “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in which 80 lights were used to capture a series of shots. Additionally, “Animatronics”, a kind of mechanical puppetry, a never before attempted 3D animation is used in the climax of 'Enthiran', said Director Shankar to the media.

Written ten years ago by Shankar, and the production started three years ago after many hurdles and postponements in the production of the film, the mere thought of the scope of such a highly technical film stunned the Indian industry, especially in view of the huge production costs, about Rs 190 crores, according to the latest reports.

The film will not fall into the usual genres of a Shankar film as it is quite different for the Indian film audience, technicians, and the director Shankar himself. Shankar says, "It is a film which will have a linear narration, with plenty of action, and far fewer dialogues… Go watch the film without expectations, and you will be stunned. Go with expectations and you will enjoy the film."

Lindsay Lohan released from jail


This video is a mosaic of the best pictures of Lindsay Lohan, the troubled, jailed, drug-addicted American celebrity who is the heartthrob of millions of her fans.

For those who are eagerly looking for news on her jail term and release, here is the latest scoop on the former teen sensation’s tryst with drug-and-alcohol-stricken destiny.

Various news media report that Lindsay Lohan is released from jail on Friday night after spending around 15 hours behind bars for evidence of another failed drug test.

The 'Mean Girls' star Lohan, 24, was led handcuffed from a Beverly Hills courtroom early on Friday morning for a third time in three years when a judge found evidence of substance abuse that makes her a criminal, and ordered Lohan, to be kept in prison until an October 22 hearing, but his decision was later reversed by a supervisor and Lohan paid a $300,000 bail to walk free again.

The former teen idol and star of films like Freaky Friday, Lohan, now released, was in the Century Regional Detention Facility in the Los Angeles suburb of Lynwood just before midnight, according to the celebrity website TMZ.

In late July and August, the Mean Girls actress served two weeks of a 90-day jail sentence and then 22 days in drug rehabilitation for violating probation on charges of drunk driving and cocaine possession.

However, Lohan's release cannot be termed as being let free unconditionally, as she will be required to wear an ankle alcohol monitor for nearly a month and she cannot go anywhere that alcohol is the main thing that is being sold.

The Hollywood actress and singer Lindsay Lohan is due back in court on Oct 22, when the judge who curtly sent her to jail will decide what her punishment will be for failing a drug test roughly two weeks after he released her early from rehab.

'Ms. Lohan cannot be released early because this isn't a jail sentence. She's being held by court order until her hearing,' contactmusic.com quoted jail sources as saying before Lohan was released.

Lohan walked free Friday night after posting a $300,000 bail, after Lohan's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley appealed to Judge Elden S. Fox's to remand the actress in custody without bail until October 22.

Endhiran (Robot) to hit screens on October 1

Super Star Rajinikanth Aishwarya Rai Enthiran Tamil Movie Stills Images Photos Gallery Robot (6)

The much awaited science fiction Tamil film Endhiran (along with its dubbed versions Robot in Hindi and Robo in Telugu), which was scheduled for release on September 24, has again been postponed for release on 1 October 2010, in view of the expected verdict of the Allahabad High Court on the Ayodhya-Babri Masjid issue. Yet another mega-budget movie Anjaane Anjaani, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, was also scheduled for September 24 release but now postponed for release on October 1 for the same reason.

The Tamil Sci-fi movie Enthiran, directed by S. Shankar and produced by Kalanidhi Maran and Hansraj Saxena starring Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles, has its soundtrack and background score by the Oscar-winning composer and music director A. R. Rahman. Though the initially planned production budget of Endhiran was Indian Rupees 150 crore (US$ 32.55 million), now it has been reported that the final budget of the film is Rs 190 crore, making it the most expensive Asian film ever made. The film is also slated to make the largest worldwide opening for an Indian film.

The release event of the Telugu version, Robo, was held in Hyderabad on 6 August 2010. The event was attended by Chiranjeevi, D. Ramanaidu, Mohan Babu, Srinu Vaitla, Kajal Aggarwal, Kamna Jethmalani and many other celebrities. The Hindi version, Robot, released in Mumbai on 14 August 2010 was attended by guests such as Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and many other celebs of Bollywood, apart from the film's sound mixing engineer and Oscar winner Resul Pookutty and Danny Denzongpa, who is also featured in the film.

Meanwhile there are reports of the fans of superstar Rajinikanth praying to make Endhiran a huge success, while Rajinikanth himself is planning to go for his usual pilgrimage to the Himalayas, a usual practice of Rajinikant before any of his films hit the screens.

The final stage of the sound mixing of Endhiran was completed on September 20, and A. R. Rahman, Resul Pookutty and the film's director Shankar and the technical team of Enthiran were present for the stage.

The film's soundtrack was released on 31 July 2010, coinciding with a promotional event held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Co-hosted by Vivek and "Punnagai Poo" Geetha, the event was attended by Kalanithi Maran, S. Shankar, Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai, A. R. Rahman, Santhanam, Karunas, Vairamuthu, R. Rathnavelu, Anthony, Sabu Cyril, and Yogi B, as well as invited guests including Dayanidhi Maran, Radha Ravi, Vadivelu, Shriya Saran, Jayam Ravi, Ramya Krishnan, S. A. Chandrasekhar, Aishwarya and Soundarya Rajinikanth, Krish, and Sangeetha Arvind, while Silambarasan Rajendar, Vijayalakshmi Agathiyan, and Poorna made stage performances.

After the second day of release of Endhiran's soundtrack album, it became #1 on the Top 10 World Albums chart on iTunes in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, a first for an Indian album to reach the top spot.

Endhiran: Theatrical Release

Anjaana Anjaani delayed to avoid clash with Babri Masjid verdict

On September 24 the Allahabad High Court is expected to give a judgment in controversial Babri Masjid Demolition case, and it has given film makers cold jitters. Two of the mega budget movies, “Robot” and “Anjaana Anjaani” earlier scheduled for released this Friday, have been postponed to October 1, 2010.

The comedy- romantic flick “Anjaana Anjaani” now will hit theatres on 1st October instead of 24th September. The main reason given is the Ayodhya verdict which will be declared on 24th September. Gossip sources report that the film’s hero Ranbir Kapoor had a talk with the producers on this serious issue and the Babri Masjid Demolition case verdict should be respected and it is not wise to release the film on a date to clash with it. The director Siddharth Anand said that he doesn’t want to risk the film’s release and it won’t be a big deal if it is delayed by a week. The film took about a year to produce and surely the producers do not want to risk its fate at the box-office by clashing with Ayodhya-Babri Masjid cases.

Anjaana Anjaani, directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala (under his Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt. Ltd banner) and Sharan Kapoor (under his IBC Motion Pictures banner) features Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Zayed Khan. The film’s music is by Vishal-Shekhar and cinematography by Ravi K. Chandran.

The romantic comedy film is about Kiara (Priyanka Chopra), based in San Francisco, while Akash (Ranbir Kapoor) is a New York City boy, both trying to find luck after several failures in their careers and in love lives. Both are fed up and they decide to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge (Brooklyn Bridge? Remember the poem by American poet Carl Sandberg?), and they land up on the same bridge at the same time, when instead of killing himself, Akash stops Kiara from jumping and tells her to travel with him to Las Vegas, the sin capital of the world, to make it big (from gambling?).

Dabangg

Dabangg, the 2010 Hindi action film directed by Abhinav Kashyap and produced by Arbaaz Khan, features Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha (daughter of Shatrughan Sinha) in lead roles. It is the debut film of Sonakshi Sinha as an actress, for Arbaaz Khan as a producer and for Abhinav Kashyap (brother of director Anurag Kashyap) as a director. The movie Dabangg also features Om Puri, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arbaaz Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Mahie Gill, Malaika Arora (item number) and Sonu Sood (main antagonist) in supporting roles.

Dabangg was released on 10 September 2010, and the film broke many records at the box office within the first week of its release. The film set the records of the highest opening day grosser and the highest weekend grosser of all time at the Indian box office, breaking records set earlier held by 3 Idiots. It is now the third highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time and the highest-grossing film of 2010.

Sonakshi Sinha went on a special diet and trained for two years in order to get into shape for her role of a village girl, reports said. The film was mostly shot in Maharashtra and a song and some other portions were shot in UAE.

The film Dabangg received mostly positive reviews from critics and was welcomed by audiences in packed cinema halls. Dabangg also received positive response in the overseas markets such as USA, UAE, UK, Australia, Mauritius, South Africa, Fiji, and some other territories of Europe, Asia and Africa.

The film was produced at a budget of Rupees 42 crore (US$ 9.11 million) and it could collect a gross revenue of Indian rupees 104 crore (US$ 22.57 million) as the initial 10-day collections. Producer Arbaaz Khan and elder brother Salman Khan are on cloud nine as the film did exceptionally well at the box office and they plan a sequel, Dabangg 2, about which Arbaaz Khan said, "Yes, there's a 110% possibility that we will start Dabangg 2, but when that will happen is yet undecided. See, Salman has several commitments to fulfill, so Dabangg 2 will take some time to start. But it's definitely on the cards."
