Aamir Khan was left starstruck after meeting one of his favorite Hollywood stars Arnold Schwarzenegger at a summit in Delhi a few days ago. Aamir tweeted “It was a bizzare feeling! I looked up when the door opened and I see THE TERMINATOR walking into my room!.” He wasn’t shy about his feelings towards the Hollywood star and continued to show his admiration for the actor in a series of tweets. Awwww!

Veteran TV writer and stand-up comedian Sanjay Shah has just sold an autobiographical sitcom to NBC television. The show will center around the experiences of an immigrant family running a fast food restaurant in Sacramento and focus on the two different sons in this family. Sanjay’s own family owns a Burger King restaurant in Sacramento so he will be culling from his own experience.

Sanjay took a circuitous route to Hollywood himself and originally graduated from Berkley. He began doing stand-up and opened for Russel Peters, then co-wrote a widespread video service called Badmashi which did parodies like ‘The Singhsons’, and then moved on to writing for such acclaimed television shows as ‘King of the Hill’, ‘Cougar Town’, ‘South Park’, ‘Enlisted’, ‘and most recently ‘1600 Penn’.

No word on casting or a possible air date as of yet.

Hollywood Director Brett Ratner Huge SRK Fan!!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It looks like there’s a mutual love-fest going on between bigtime Hollywood director Brett Ratner and Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan as the two have exchanged messages on Twitter.  Fresh on the heels of Hugh Jackman voicing his admiration for SRK’s work, Ratner took to social media to let King Khan know he’s also an ardent admirer.

Ratner, who’s known for directing the ‘Rush Hour‘ series along with ‘X-men: The Last Stand‘, posted “@iamsrk I would love to work with you one day!! Big fan!!!” on SRK’s personal Twitter page.  SRK let Ratner know that he’d love that by tweeting back “@BrettRatner Would be my honour. I am an avid follower of your work & a huge fan of your films. Would love to come & see you work on sets one day.

Ratner is currently producing ‘Hercules: The Thracian Wars‘ on location and tweeted back “@iamsrk It would be an honor to have you on one of my sets. I am shooting Hercules now in Budapest for another month. Please be my guest!“. The film stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the legendary strongman and is slated for a July 25, 2014 release.

No word yet on if SRK has taken up his offer, but we (like most fans) would love to see SRK and Bret team up together for an action flick that would truly bring Bollywood and Hollywood (with lots of explosions, of course…) together!

Eva Mendes Launches her First Fashion Line

Eva flashing her personal style at a premiere, but the star was initially hesitant.

Hollywood star Eva Mendes is expanding her brand with the addition of a vintage clothing line in a joint venture with New York and Company.  The ‘Sin City’ superlative went on ‘Good Morning America’ to share the new project.

When asked for the focus of the line Eva saidIt offers simple, sensible clothes for the everyday woman. I love a bargain. I am always shopping at thrift shops. I will go and buy a $6 dress, then I will get a coffee, and there are always women who are like, “Where can I get your dress?.”

The line will cater to women of all shapes and sizes as clothes range from size zero up to 18.  Eva’s sister and friends  suggested to her that she share her unique flare for fashion with everyone through a fashion line.

When asked how her line came about Eva saidNew York and Company came to me with the opportunity, and I have been a fan of theirs for years. My first reaction was nervous, I was like, ‘I’m not sure I have anything to offer’. But I accepted the challenge with one goal: to make women look good.

Eva’s line will also be affordable to the masses as pants will be around $50 and dresses $80.  As for who she’s targeting Eva offeredMy customer is not a fan of the way tabloids cover celebrity style, “Who wore it best.” It’s disastrous for women’s self-esteem. With fashion, there is no right or wrong.

No word on which stores will carry Eva’s clothing line, but you can next see her in her boyfriend Ryan Gosling’s acting/directing debut ‘How to Catch a Monster’.

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!

Seal Explodes in Twitter Tirade Against Australian Media!

In an interesting bit of news crooner Seal exploded in a Twitter rampage against Australian media after his good friend and fellow ‘The Voice Australia‘ judge/Good Charlotte guitarist and backup vocalist Benji Madden was kicked out of the Australian casino hotel he was staying in after authorities discovered a small amount of marijuana in his room.

Seal tweeted “Way to respect a guest in your country trash media, way to make us feel welcome” through his Twitter account on June 13th and followed that up with “Keep it up…. sure we’ll be back next year. And yes, I say we, because it’s just a matter of time before you gun us all down.  I for one will not stand by and watch you attempt to destroy my Brother, you gun one you gun us all!.”

After that Seal wasn’t quite done with his tirade and continued by slamming the Star Casino in which Madden was staying by tweeting “Shame on the Star…you ask him to meet n greet a cancer victim in your hotel room then send police to his room? Nice….very classy…keep it up Judas. I’m done here.”  He later backtracked furiously with a tweet blaming his earlier rant on being away from his children for 11 weeks and voiced his love for Australia and ‘The Voice Australia‘ along with it’s Aussie talent.

This story has everything, cancer patients, drugs, angry Seals.  Maybe the cannibas belonged to the cancer patient visiting Madden who was using it as medical marijuana and just happened to leave it behind?  Perhaps Seal should follow the advice of one of his earlier hits, “Don’t Cry.”……

Bollywood actress Jiah Khan was found dead at her residence last night around 11 pm.  The actress whose real name was Nafisa Khan, was reportedly depressed about her career and love life.

The body of 25-year-old Jiah Khan, was discovered on Monday evening at her home in Mumbai. She shared her house with her sister and mother, who reportedly found her body hanging.

Police are investigating and hoping to get answers after the post-mortem test reports arrive. Although an investigation is currently underway, Indian media suggests the reason Jiah took her life was due to a failed relationship with Suraj Pancholi, whom she had dated last year. The actress was supposedly heartbroken and wasn’t too happy with her career either.

Khan was the daughter of Indian-American Ali Rizvi Khan, and and Rabiya Amin a Hindi film actress from the 1980s. According to her website, Ms Khan was born in New York but the family moved to Chelsea area of London. She later returned to New York at 17 to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

Khan’s Bollywood debut came in 2007  in the  controversial film Nishabd, based on the Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita.

RIP Jiah.
