Saif Ali Khan:”I would not like to kiss onscreen because I think it’s not required”

Actor Saif Ali Khan has expressed his disinterest in kissing scenes in Bollywood movies.

The 43-year-old who has locked-lips on-screen in films “Hum Tum” and “Salaam Namaste,” says that Indian films can do without love scenes because it doesn’t “suit” them.  He made this statement during an interview when asked about his views on a comment Kareena Kapoor had made before their marriage. The actress had said that the couple had made a commitment not to do on-screen kissing scenes anymore. When asked, the actor responded: “No. I wouldn’t even say that’s in place. I don’t think it’s a function of being in a relationship. I have done films like ‘Salaam Namaste’ a long time ago. In India, it is not required in our films to have kissing scenes. I don’t think it’s required to be overly sexual. It doesn’t suit us.”

He continued to say that his current wife Kareena has also smooched in a few movies and that “it doesn’t work on-screen.”
Nobody looks comfortable doing it. And slowly, slowly reports filter through that when somebody has tried to be a little risque, that people don’t seem to like it. I think the kind of cinema we have, we are a hypocritical culture. You can talk about things, you can see Hollywood movies, but if a kiss or a lovemaking scene is presented in a way that doesn’t make you uncomfortable, it’s much easier for everybody to watch,” the actor told TV host Anupama Chopra.

Saif feels really strongly about no on-screen kissing.  Could it be that he doesn’t want Kareena making out with other male actors? Is this some possessive behavior leaking through the superstar facade?  Guess we will have to wait and see if the newly weds live up to their promise.

‘Fruitvale Station’ Opens Same Weekend as Trayvon Martin Verdict Reached

In a weekend that saw ‘Despicable Me 2‘ beat out newcomers ‘Grown Ups 2‘ and ‘Pacific Rim‘ for box-office supremacy, but Sundance Film Festival favorite ‘Fruitvale Station‘ also opened to great reviews and good returns given it’s limited release.  The Forest Whitaker produced debut from 26-year old debut director Ryan Coogler deals with the events that culminated in the shooting of  unarmed African-American youth Oscar Grant by a police officer at a San Francisco transit station in 2008.

Grant died of his injuries and the officer who shot him was convicted of involuntary manslaughter but only served 11 months in jail.  The movie came out on the same weekend that a Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, causing some critics to draw parallels between Grant’s death and Martin’s.

Here’s a trailer for ‘Fruitvale Station‘:

The film won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and the Audience Award as well.  Michael B. Jordan‘s portrayal of Oscar Grant is already causing some to speculate that he may be up for an Oscar come awards season.  The film was released July 12th and BET is going to air a special about the film in the coming weeks.

Jackie Chan said he would like to see more co-operation between the Indo-Chinese film communities and is looking for a role to feature him in a Bollywood film.  The martial arts expert and action star is currently in Delhi for the China Film festival. He even mentioned that he was “looking for a good script” and that he was looking for collaborations for a role “for my acting and not my action. I am a pretty good actor.”

What’s Mr. Chan’s favorite Bollywood movie?  Why, ‘3 Idiots‘ of course!  The 59-year old star added that he would love to use Indian choreography, but sorry fans, he says he can’t dance.

Chan is currently in India touring and promoting his musical film ‘My Life in Action‘ and is in talks to perhaps star in Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables 3‘.  Let’s hope Mr. Chan gets a chance to bring China to Bollywood!

Eva Longoria has a Wardrobe Malfunction at the Cannes Film Festival

Eva Longoria left little to the imagination at Cannes on Saturday when she lifted her green Atelier Versace gown at the premiere of Jimmy P: Psychotherapy Of a Plains Indian.

The 38 year old actress  mistakenly pulled up her dress (a bit too much) as she was walking up to pose for the cameras.  Exposing her naked bottom half to the world and then simply laughing it off, Eva tweeted the next day:

Here’s my dress for tonight!” sharing a  photo of herself in a skin-tight, sheer black gown. “No wardrobe malfunctions tonight!”

Well–that’s one way to get everyone’s attention…

Here the beauty walked the red carpet in a black Elie Saab Couture gown for the screening of the film ‘Inside Llewyn Davis‘ at the 66th international film festival. Keeping her tresses long and flowy with simple nude lips. The actress certainly redeemed herself from last years fashion disaster.

The queen is back! Better watch out Sonam Kapoor….you’ve got competition ;)
