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.

Anil Kapoor Bringing ’24’ to India!

Bollywood/Hollywood actor Anil Kapoor originally played a supporting role as Islamic leader Omar Hassan on the last season of the U.S. version of ‘24‘, but he’s taking on the leading role of everyone’s favorite anti-terrorism agent Jack Bauer on the Indian version of the show. Anil bought the rights for ‘24‘ in late 2011 with the intention of adapting it for Indian audiences so it only makes sense that he will play the lead role of protagonist Jack Bauer, originally played by Kiefer Sutherland.

24‘ was a show that covered a 24-hour period in Counter Terrorism Unit agent Jack Bauer’s life using a real time method of narration in which a prominently displayed ticking clock coupled with split screens depicting different, simultaneous occurences heightened the audience’s sense of drama and peril. The original ‘24‘ ran for eight critically acclaimed seasons in the U.S. and also has the distinction of being the longest running espionage-themed show in history, beating out the original ‘Mission: Impossible‘ show and British show ‘The Avengers‘.

Anil took to Twitter to tweet “”First look of 24 India! The teaser looks great. Can’t wait to show it to you guys!“. Famous Bollywood writer Niranjan Iyengar, of ‘My Name is Khan‘ fame, will write the dialogue with Rensil D’Silva also writing and Anil acting/producing.

Anil and his writing team have hinted that the Indian version will be different than the Hollywood version, but they’ve been sparse on particulars. The American version of ‘24‘ sometimes came under attack for its depictions of Muslims and accusations that it glorified torture, but was on the whole a well-received show. No word yet if Anil’s Indian-version of Jack Bauer will flip the script by torturing Caucasian terrorists (perhaps Checnyans and others?) but we’ll keep you posted!

Porn star Sunny Leone’s Husband Daniel Weber Not Interested In Acting

Sunny Leone’s manager, husband Daniel Weber, says he doesn’t have any Bollywood aspirations and isn’t interested in acting.

Porn star, turned Bollywood diva, Sunny Leone is taking the industry by storm.  Her recent move to India has been both exciting and a challenge for the couple.  Although the couple is taking Hindi language classes together, Daniel says it’s simply to help him run his business in India.  “As we have shifted our base to India and are currently staying in Mumbai, it is very important to know the language of the country. I am not learning Hindi because I want to have a career in Bollywood.”

Daniel does play a cameo role in wife Sunny’s latest flick, Jackpot.  He says he only agreed to do it, because director Kaizad Gustad insisted he did.  “I don’t have any Bollywood aspirations. I don’t want to act in films. I own a production house in the US and I look after the business by sitting here. I also have to manage Sunny’s schedules. I am quite busy in managing all these commitments.

We were shooting Jackpot in Goa and Kaizad needed someone for a cameo role. He approached me with the offer and I couldn’t say no. I am playing the role of a conman and also share screen space with Sunny,” he added.

Weber has been featured in Adult films in the past, but has no interest in breaking out in Bollywood.

Sachiin Joshi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tamil actor Bharath, are also starring in the film.  The film will be released sometime next year.

Lindsay Lohan Seeks a Sperm Donor

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly ready to be a mommy. According to sources, the 26-year old is in search of a sperm donor.

Although Lohan is currently in Malibu’s Cliffside Rehabilitation center, the star is eagerly seeking a donor and has been asking her male friends if they would be willing to donate (sounds like someone is desperate.) It’s rumored one of her friends replied “See if you can take care of yourself before you think about bringing a kid into the world.”  Which in our opinion is excellent advice!

We’re told Lindsay is ready to start shooting her eight part documentary for the Oprah Winfrey Network, which is suppose to air sometime next year. She also expressed her interest in opening up a shop in the Big Apple once she’s completed rehab.

Looks like things are looking up for Lindsay. Let’s hope she keeps out of trouble!

Summer just keeps getting hotter with Johnny Depp‘s latest film ‘The Lone Ranger‘ set for release on July 3rd!  Gore Verbinski, who directed Johnny in ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean‘ franchise, teams up with Johnny again along with Armie Hammer as the Ranger himself. Although some critics have been rather harsh on the film, it remains to be seen if this will scare away summer audiences looking for a bit of old Western escapism this weekend.

The action packed adventure should be perfect for those looking for a dose of summer fun.

Here’s a trailer to wet your appetite:

 

And for the kids we have ‘Despicable Me 2‘ which stars Steve Carell as evil-genius-turned-good-guy Gru, his cute adopted children, and his loveable yellow henchmen as well.  Kristen Wiig jumps on board this sequel as a special agent who enlists Gru’s help in tackling a new super-villain. The first movie was a fantastic bit of animation with some laughs and heart, let’s hope the follow up is just as good!

Here’s a trailer for ‘Despicable Me 2‘:

 

Have a great Holiday weekend folks!
