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!

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….
