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.

Everything that is old is new again in today’s Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan‘s 1992 musical romance ‘Deewana‘ is no different.  The original version starred SRK as a man who falls in love with a widow and overcomes many obstacles to win her hand.  Rishi Kapoor played the widow’s murdered husband and the late Divya Bharti played the widow.

Guddu Dhanoa, who produced the original, announced his plans to remake the classic but insists it will share only the name and romantic subject matter with the original.  He elaborated by saying “We are making a romantic film but it is a completely different story. We are using the title ‘Deewana‘ but something would be added to the title. It is like how Bhatts are making films like ‘Murder‘ and ‘Jannat‘. I am also doing something similar.”

Although the script is ready, no word on castings yet as Dhanoa said “We are in talks with actors but nothing is finalized yet.

It’s also unknown whether SRK himself will be involved in the project, but audiences can next see the star with Deepika Padukone in ‘Chennai Express‘ coming out August 8th.

For those feeling nostalgic, here is the song ‘Aisi Deewangi‘ with SRK and Divya Bharti:

We’re hoping the wardrobe, hair, and everything else stay true to the original as it’s 90’s-tastic(!), but it’s not likely.

Simon Cowell to Launch ‘Got Talent’ in Afghanistan?

Not sure if this will even happen but we thought it was interesting enough to announce (ya never know.)

Simon Cowell’s next stop? Afghanistan of course! This man believes there’s talent “everywhere” and although, there is a war going on in Afghanistan, he see’s no reason why the reality show shouldn’t launch in the country. Simon has always believed `Got Talent` can work anywhere, because no matter where you are, people have amazing talents,” a source said. “There may be a war raging in Afghanistan, but people are still living their lives and they enjoy watching TV just like anyone else. Rules are being drawn up, but there is a possibility troops will be allowed to enter assuming they can get permission,” they added.

The 53-year old Mugol wants to bring entertainment to the people of Afghanistan just like he has in other countries such as: Brazil, Ukraine, India, South Korea and Kazakhstan, to name a few.

Any idea on who the celebrity judges should be??  Good luck with that one Simon ;)
