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!

 

Salman Khan looks to ‘Kick” SRK out of Top Spot on Eid!

Looks like Salman Khan is trying to regain his spot on top of the Bollywood mountain as his new movie ‘Kick‘ has opened to stellar box office returns already since its July 25 release. Many Bollywood movies look to capitalize on the traditionally strong release date of Eid, a festival that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and Shah Rukh Khan was no different last year with his box office hit ‘Chennai Express‘. Salman probably felt a bit slighted as his films usually ruled the Bollywood screens on Eid, with his past films ‘Wanted‘, ‘Dabaang‘, and the 4th highest grossing Bollywood film ‘Ek Tha Tiger‘ representing his recent stranglehold on the holiday. Well, ‘Kick’ is off to a good start as it has already made 86 crore (roughly $14.5 million) in its opening weekend. 

 ‘Kick‘ is an action-romance hybrid in which Salman plays a character named Devil who seeks to truly seize the moment everyday, resulting in action packed scenes that even have Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan taking notice. Amitabh was so impressed with ‘Kick’s chase sequence, supposedly the longest ever in a Bollywood film, that he took a shot at Hollywood when he stated “Did you see the trailer of ‘KICK’..baaadooom !! Compares with anything that the other ‘wood’ brings out from their high end films ! See for yourself” and linked to a trailer of ‘Kick’. 

 Here’s that trailer of ‘Kick’, which also features co-star Jacquline Fernandez….

 

 
Well, what do you think folks? Will Salman take down Shah Rukh on Eid in this battle for Bollywood supremacy? Will ‘Kick‘ put ‘Chennai Express’ on a slow train to nowhere? I guess you’ll just have to stay tuned….

Did a Bollywood Actress Cause the Banderas/Griffith Split???

Did a Bollywood actress, who is known for stirring up controversy in B-town, take her drama to Hollywood?

Mallika Sherawat is the target of a scandalous rumor that may have rocked the foundation of one of Hollywood’s longest running power couples. It seems the diva is being accused of having extramarital relations with actor Antonio Banderas and some are saying she’s the reason for his split with actress Melanie Griffith earlier this month. The Hollywood couple had been together for a good 18 years when rumors started flying after Mallika was seen dancing with Banderas in a recorded video taken a couple of years ago in Cannes. Was this merely an innocent twirl between friends or did this signal the beginning of an illicit relationship that has carried on for years?

Mallika tells E! news that she has nothing to do with the couple’s break up and that Antonio was simply an “acquaintance” to her. “Antonio Banderas is a wonderful man, a great dancer and an acquaintance of mine. I did not go on any vacation with him, and I’m sorry he’s going through a divorce.”

Either way, you know what they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity! ;)

Bollywood megastar has been found taking time to regroup after his notoriously high profile divorce from wife of 14 years Sussanne Roshan. But the couple go even further back as the 40-year old ‘Krrish 3’ star had known Sussanne since he was twelve and they had officially been together for 17 years.

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.

Former Miss Universe Lara Dutta says she’s definitely doing films again! The beauty had taken sometime off after giving birth to her baby in 2012, with husband Tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi. Now, Lara says she’s eager to get back to work!

We think that’s a terrific idea! And we’re not just saying that because she’s one of the most beautiful Bollywood actresses in the industry ;)

Lara Dutta made a statement during a recent interview saying, “Right now I am focusing only on doing films. I am definitely going to be back in films, you will see me soon. I am shooting this year, the release is not in my hands. I can’t talk about which films I am doing. Everyone knows that we are doing a sequel to ‘Chalo Delhi’, that is in pre-production stage. I am quite excited about it. Besides this, there are films that I am doing outside my production house.

The beauty was crowned Miss Universe in 2000, which led to her Bollywood debut in 2003 with the film Andaaz. She married Tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi in 2010.

King Khan Richer Than Tom Cruise!!!

In some surprising news, Bollywood’s biggest star topped anything Hollywood has to offer as the latest figures show that Shah Rukh Khan earned $48 million dollars last year alone on his way to a personal net worth estimated at $600 million. SRK earned this mostly from endorsement deals as King Khan earned $5 million for last year’s hit ‘Chennai Express’. 

Tom Cruise, in comparison, comes in at an almost paltry by comparison $400 million. As for others on the list hailing from Bollywood, Salman Khan is second with an estimated $200 million and Amir Khan is not far behind with $180 million.
 
Bollywood finds itself in good company in the global wealth race as Shah Rukh Khan is topped only by comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s $820 million fortune and tied by Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor’s $600 million fortune. 
 
Others on the list include Mel Gibson at $425 million, Jack Nicholson at $400 million, Johnny Depp at $350 million, Keanu Reeves at $350 million, and Tom Hanks at $350 million.
 
How does King Khan feel about being more than halfway to a billion dollars in a country where 11.8% of the population falls below the international poverty level of $1.25 of income daily? Shah Rukh says he overcame humble beginnings to become the financial behemoth he is today and was accused of borrowing from author J.K. Rowling when he told an audience “Let me tell you, poverty is not an ennobling experience at all. Poverty entails fear and stress and sometimes, depression. I’ve seen my parents go through it many times — it means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships.”
 
Well, we’re sure Shah Rukh has made sure that neither he nor his family will ever experience those hardships again with 600 million reasons why! Hooray for Bollywood?!?

Sunny D Taking Her Talents to Juhu Beach (Or Bollywood in L.A. at Least!)

You heard it here first folks, perennial favorite RJ Sunny D has taken her radio hosting talents to Bollywood as she spearheads an infusion of fresh, new talent to Indian radio station Mera Sangeet LA. Mera Sangeet is an Indian-centric radio station being brought to the Los Angeles airwaves by Bollywood star Pooja Batra and film director and producer Anshuvijay Rode, that seeks to better serve the Hindi-music seeking masses here stateside.

Sunny D, A.K.A. Sanna Khan, will be brightening up your radio dial through an online streaming show called “Ready, Steady, Go!” from 7-8 AM every morning beginning May 15th! Although the name seems more evocative of ‘60’s British pop-culture (invoking thoughts of Mods, Who records, and British flags on everything…), Sunny D will use the platform to play an eclectic variety ranging from Bollywood and songs to modern day pop fare all with a dash of her own sparkling personality and roguish wit thrown into the mix.

Sunny D joins such Mera Sangeet on-air talent like RJ Karan on Mera Sangeet’s line-up with rumors claiming Pooja Batra may even lend her talent to Mera Sangeet’s programming. Is there any truth to these rumors? Only time will tell, but make sure to tune in to Mera Sangeet LA online at http://www.Merasangeet.com or download their iPhone app so you can get the station streaming by finding the Mera Sangeet App at the Apple App store.
