It would be a great combination to see father and son dancing on the same track and on the same set. Yes, we are talking about hot Ranbir Kapoor and legendry actor Rishi Kapoor. Director Siddharth Anand is planning to shoot a special number with son and father but at the same time he is feeling scared to approach Rishiji. Siddharth said, “We have used the track from ‘Hum Kissi Se Kam Nahin’ by Kishore Kumar at the beginning of the song. Then we got Kishore and Leena Chandavarkarji’s son Sumeet to sing the rest of the song as an original composition. So it would be quite an emotional and nostalgic trip. Kishoreda’s son sings for Chintujii’s son”.

Bachna Ae Haseena is one of the most highly anticipated films of the era as it has love couple Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone along with Bipasha Basu in the lead roles. Siddharth who is optimistic about the success of his film has roped in music director duo Vishal-Shekhar to frame the music. At first Siddharth zeroed upon Ranbir to sing the song but later he dropped the idea as his voice will not go along with the song.

Children of a few orphanages here were treated to a memorable evening when Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji and other members of Yash Raj Films’ forthcoming movie ‘Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic’ sang and danced for them.

Children from eight orphanage homes across the city Friday evening gathered at Bhaidas Hall here to meet Saif, Rani, Amisha Patel, director Kunal Kohli and music directors Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.

‘Thoda Pyaar…’ is about four destitute children.
‘Film stars perform at every event. This time, I decided why not give these children a chance to have fun and make them stars of an evening,’ said Kohli, who has also co-produced the film.
The evening was marked by a soulful performance from the film track by the composer trio who have scored the music for the movie. Saif, who plays the lead character in the film, also performed for the children.

‘It is a dream come true. I could never think that Rani didi would dance with me on the same stage. Saif uncle offered me gifts. I will never forget this evening,’ said a 12-year-old girl from an orphanage. Rani, who personally interacted with many children and offered them gifts, was an instant hit with the children. Commenting on the event, Rani said: ‘Children always fascinate me and I enjoy being with them. They are the most beautiful creations of god.’

Highlighting the basic premise of the film, Kohli said: ‘The film’s story revolves around four orphaned children and has the elements of magic, love, emotions and fun.’
Added Rani: ‘It is also about a business tycoon who never got love in his life, four children who are in need of love and an angel who can’t love. My rolea is of an angel sent by god who comes there to bring smile and happiness in their lives.’ situation comes when the four orphans come under the same roof with the business tycoon played by Saif.

‘The film also stars Rishi Kapoor and Amisha Patel in a special role,’ Kohli said.
Compared to Yash Raj Film’s earlier movies, this one is made on a low budget. The cost of the film is less than Rs.200 million and has been shot in Delhi, Los Angeles and Bangkok. It is scheduled to hit the theatres June 27.

It’s official. Bollywood’s “it” couple Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are engaged to be married.Deepika confessed that Ranbir proposed to her at the time of their debut releases in November last year. “And I happily said yes.”

The couple met a few months earlier. She said she accepted because she was happy, deeply in love and the couple had the blessings of their parents.

“Our parents are happy with our relationship.” With their parents blessings it looks like history may just be repeating itself. Ranbir’s parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh met in 1975 on a film set and were married five years later.

She laughed off rumours that her schedule had put a strain on their love. The two squeezed in quality time a few days ago when Ranbir flew to Bangkok where she was shooting Chandni Chowk to China. “We read about the rumours of our split and had a gala time laughing.”
“We had a great time in Australia working together for Bachna Ae Haseeno. We spent some quality time together.” They met through mutual friends when Ranbir was shooting Saawariya and Deepika was filming Om Shanti Om.

“It was love at first sight. We were introduced by a mutual friend and we liked each other but we needed time for our love to grow before we could make a commitment.”

She said they still had a ways to go before they tie the knot. “We are on the threshold of our careers and have a long way to go.”

Deepika Padukone will appear in a film together with Rishi Kapoor, the father of current boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.

“We’re going to be working together. We read a script together recently. He’s so passionate about cinema. I’ve so much to learn from him,” Deepika told IANS.

The film, to be directed by Imtiaz Ali and produced by Saif Ali Khan’s Illuminati Films, will feature Saif, as the male lead opposite Deepika rightly as sources have been buzzing around the past months and Rishi has just been recently added into the film. So everything is pretty much confirmed.

The utter admiration for Rishi. A bit nauseating if you ask us.

THIS YEAR ITS ALL ABOUT THE KAPOORS…not a single Bachchan anttended the show.

Cringe how much you like about her winning the Best Actress trophy at the recent Filmfare Awards. She has won and there is nothing you can do about it. Many were complaining about the biasness and how faux the Filmfare has become. I mean, she is competing against Aishwarya Rai and Rani Mukherjee, two Filmfare Award winners and Madhuri Dixit, five time Filmfare Award winner all in the Best Actress category. And her role in Jab We Met was less than award-winning to say the very least.

Well, we do not know whether this formula is true or false but we think we have found the right answer to her winning.

It is simple. Tashan her movie is coming up. It is under Yash Raj Productions. Obviously Yash Raj wants this movie to do well having seen UTV’s Jodhaa Akbar’s immense success and Red Chillies Om Shanti Om, the biggest blockbuster in history of Bollywood. Therefore surely the production house wants to propel the upcoming movie into a blockbuster too no? And besides Yash Chopra has wuite a following in the Filmfare Awards right? How to get people talking? Get controversy, get publicity any thing to get people talking. And people are talking about her undeserving win. Wait, isn’t Kareena Kapoor in Tashan?!?!?!

Go figure.
