Now that Hrithik Roshan is unattached, he’s not wasting any time chatting it up with the ladies. Here he is photographed with Paris Hilton at a hot spot in Dubai. The heiress was all smiles as she posed for the cameras with the Bollywood superstar. She’s quoted as saying “Hrithik’s a gentleman, very sweet and charming, and we hung out all night. I have heard so much about Bollywood and Hrithik represented India in the most elegant and romantic way! I can’t wait to go back to India.”  

Interesting. We wonder if Hrithik ended the night with a “bang bang” ;)

It looks as though the rumors circulating around Bollywood bombshell Jacqueline Fernandez are true after all! The Sri Lankan babe is set to star in the upcoming Canadian-British thriller ‘Definition of Fear’, directed by filmmaker James Simpson. 

James Simpson has worked with some of Hollywood’s brightest stars, such as Al Pacino and Penelope Cruz. The film is reportedly going to be shot in Canada and Jacqueline will head over once she wraps up her current project in Malaysia. This project marks James Simpson’s directorial debut and features a script that the nascent helmer also wrote. 

The story surrounds four girlfriends who take a weekend trip for the holidays to a cabin and discover they are not alone.

Oooh, we wonder how long Jacqueline’s character will survive in this hot horror mess!?!

Terminator going to Chennai for ‘Ai’ Opening Experience

The film that has everyone in Bollywood hyped up is now attracting Hollywood as well. Venu Ravinchandran’s film ‘Ai’ has pulled in Hollywood/Hong Kong stunt master Yuen Woo-ping, the stunt guy for critically acclaimed films such as ‘Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon‘ and ‘The Matrix‘. 

We hear Arnold Schwarzenegger is also flying out to India for the film’s audio launch in Chennai. The Hollywood icon is quoted as saying “I want to congratulate a great director Mr Shankar for making such a spectacular film, ‘Ai’ with great visual effects so I will be in Chennai to celebrate the grand audio launch of the movie. I am sure the event will be fantastic and I look forward to attending it,” in a short clip he shared with fans on YouTube. We hear the movie was originally shot in Telagu, and is now being dubbed in Hindi. It was originally called ‘Manoharudu’.

The film, which was said to be shot mostly in China over a period of 2 years and 8 months, is directed by S. Shankar and stars Tamil actor, Vikram and British actress Amy Jackson, while also featuring music by the one and only A.R Rahman. Other talent included in the film are Suresh Gopi, Upen Patel and Santhanam, to name a few. The film is said to be an “action thriller” with an hint of romance, of course. It also has a reported $30 million budget and is said to heavily feature special effects and extended action sequences. Let’s see if Bollywood can impress Hollywood as much as it has the Terminator! The film is set to be released around the Diwali festival. 

Bollywood Takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

It looks like B-town celebrities are joining their Hollywood brethren in the ongoing Ice Bucket Challenge trend!  Check out Bipasha Basu as she takes a tiny silver bucket and dumps it on herself. Superstar Abhishek Bachchan proudly accepted the challenge from friend Riteish Deshmukh and took the icy plunge in a bathtub. He also challenged his father, Megastar Amithabh Bachchan, along with the entire Happy New Year film team.

Bipasha tweeted “Accepted my best friend suzie’s ! i am nominating RockyS and Raj Kundra!” yesterday. Supposedly, it was athlete Sania Mirza who initiated the craze in India after it started in the U.S. in support of ALS research. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. There is no treatment or cure for the disease.

Actors Akshay Kumar, Siddharth Malhotra, Pulkit Samrat and Ashish Chowdhry were also dared to take the challenge through actor Riteish Deshmukh, but no word on if they’re up to the challenge.

We’ll just have to wait and see if they accept!

Hrithik recently released a photo showing him relaxing Indian style with sons Hrehaan (8) and Hridhaan (4) at the Magic Kingdom. He released a photo showing him seated Indian style with the caption “On the road less travelled u must sometime stop and take a picture”. Audiences can next expect to see the Bollywood headliner in ‘Bang Bang’ opposite co-star Katrina Kaif.

It’s been a busy year for Hrithik with a recovery from brain surgery following an on-set accident, let’s hope that he really can enjoy some R & R with his sons while soaking up all the magic and sunshine Disneyland has to offer.
