Bollywood newcomer Amy Jackson is following the footsteps of other B-town celebs, by shooting a campaign with PETA to help encourage people to adopt homeless animals.

Bollywood has been on the PETA wagon for a while now and it seems the trend is only growing. The purpose of the campaign is to promote animal adoption and to stop animal cruelty all together. The actress is featured in the ad with a cat, which she rescued when he was just 6-weeks-old.

“We can stop the cycle of animal homelessness and save lives by opening our hearts and homes to a loving cat or dog from an animal shelter instead of buying animals from breeders or pet shops.”

“Every time someone buys a cat or a dog from a breeder or a pet shop, a cat on the streets or in an animal shelter loses his or her chance at finding a good home,” says the British model-actress.

Stars like John Abraham, Shilpa Shetty, Ayushmann Khurrana and Imran Khan have also supported PETA causes in recent years.

Right on, Bollywood!

Hollywood has approached the busy director with a remake project for a popular foreign film. Gupta who was already working on movies, ‘Mumbai Saga‘ and ‘Khotey Sikkey‘ has to now make time for a third project.

“I am contractually bound to not reveal the details.” “All I can tell you is that it is a thriller like many of my previous films. But while the others were male-centric, this one has a woman protagonist and two important male characters. These guys approached me after seeing my body of work,” says Sanjay.

When asked who he will cast for the films, Sanjay says he may approach Bollywood actors John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan for the job. Maybe even Shahid Kapoor? He isn’t too sure about who he will cast for the female role but we’re sure the co-producer will reveal more as they move closer to production.

It’ll be a star but not the ones you are expecting. I’ll spring a big surprise,” said the 44-year-old. “I’ll finish it in one 35-60 day schedule. The city is important, we can easily film it in Mumbai. In fact, after struggling with the Mumbai of the 80s and 90s in ‘Mumbai Saga’, I would be happy to shoot the city as it is today,” he continued.

It is a universal theme with a taut screenplay that can be easily adapted to the Indian scenario. It won’t take me long to write it. I just need to work on the dialogue. It’s such a thrill to be finally doing a woman centric subject in Hollywood. Wow!

We agree with Mr. Gupta! Bollywood could use a little refresh ;)

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.

Surprise! Hugh Jackman was chosen to be the brand ambassador of Micromax, an Indian mobile handset company.

The Hollywood star has openly expressed his love for India.  He supports Indian brands and is delighted to be the face behind Micromax.

I am extremely thrilled and honoured to be part of the Micromax family. I am a huge lover of India as it is one of the most exciting countries in the world and we also share our love for cricket,” said the 45-year-old actor.

Born in Sydney to English parents, Hugh Jackman is better known for his roles in:  X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine and Les Miserables, to name a few. 

The actor is super supportive of the brand. “Phones are genuinely time saving devices that can help you live a better life while juggling around with different situations.
