Tashan might have failed to show it’s tashan on the box office, but the actor Saif Ali Khan still considers it to be his favourite movie. The reason is obvious, the moviegifted him his current girl friend, Kareena Kapoor.

“It was great fun making ‘Tashan’ and something really positive came out of it. I met Kareena during ‘Tashan’. That’s enough for me,” says Saif. He also says that he like the script but the end product wasn’t something he expected.”

Oh, so when your movie flop, don’t blame on your acting abilities, but blame the crew or even the edititng people, who stay up day and night to edit the film as best as possible. Wah Saif !

Yash Raj banner’s next film after the much-hyped but flop Tashan is Kunal Kohli’s Thoda Pyar, Thoda Magic. And the most pertinent question, as of now, is whether Kunal’s next will be Yash Raj’s next hit too or will it fall flat on its face like Tashan?

Kunal answers that question himself, “ Fanaa was my last film. In the meantime, I haven’t cared about anything else. Honestly, I haven’t been very concerned either. I didn’t make Tashan and its not doing well at the BO shouldn’t affect my film or me in any way. Whether it worked or failed as a film isn’t a statement on my next! I’m busy with my film and am waiting for it to release.”

The director who confesses his loves for making love stories has always managed to rope in big names for his films. Whether it was the Rani-Saif jodi in Hum Tum, Kajol-Aamir pairing in Fanaa or Rani-Saif in Thoda… again, his films have never been low on star quotient. “Call me lucky,” laughs Kunal, adding, “In fact, in Thoda… both Rani and Saif are playing characters they’ve never played before. Rani plays an angel who can’t love and there are four orphans who need a lot of love – that’s the basic plot.”

How does he think his film will do considering Bollywood isn’t going great guns this year? “The last year wasn’t good in the initial phase either. IPL is high on action as of now and no producer would like to risk taking it on.” And what about rumours of Rani and Aditya Chopra’s link-ups – do they affect their work equations? “Rani is a pro and so is Adi. We all know better than bringing any rumours or controversies on the sets. Also after ‘Light, camera, action’, it is only work that matters and nothing else!” he says.

We hope Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic does well too Kunal. Yash Raj does not need another stinker in his kitty.

We can’t help to notice that these two videos are SO SIMILAR. Yes, we’re talkin about Kareena-Shahid-Saif videos.
The first video was a recent flop TASHAN, Dil Haara. Saif-Kareena

Anothe video was few years back, Kareena-Shahid in FIDA.

Before the film released, director Vijay Krishna Acharya who wrote the Dhoom series for Yash Raj Films kept extremely mum. Finally, after the film has released to bad reports and collections, he speaks up.

Firstly, he refutes the fact that Tashan hasn’t worked with the masses. “I have seen the film in 12 different places. I have found the audiences reaction to be pretty good,” he says. Explaining why Tashan may not have impressed critics, he defends, “Tashan doesn’t follow a set formula–the narrative style. The film is for the masses. I had hoped that probably the sharper brains would also like it. But I was wrong.”

Many are wondering why the film wasn’t promoted to its full extent. Victor, as he is fondly called, explains the promotion strategy, “We were underplaying the film for sure. We had a lot of confidence that the film would do well. We thought if we hyped the film, the expectations would be huge.” Unfortunately, we hate to break it to him, but expectations were huge anyway!

Speaking on the no-show of the film at multiplexes, he states, “The figures are still to come in. Let’s just wait a little more before we say that the film has done miserably.” And finally, is he discouraged? “Not at all. I will continue making films that do not follow the set pattern of filmmaking,” he signs off positively.

When Saif Ali Khan tattooed her name on his arm, it was only a matter of time until Kareena did something in return. And news is that she has gone topless for him in Greece.
Sources from the sets of Tashan have reported that Saif wanted the film to have a slight edge, and suggested the topless scene. He first put the idea to Kareena, who immediately agreed, and then went to the film-makers with the plan.

Kareena is expected to be seen top-less, but only her back, while from the front she will be seen wearing just a bikini. She will be seen coming out of the swimming pool and undressing. The scene was kept under wraps and not many were present on the sets when it was filmed.
There were slight reservations from Kareena, as she thought her figure was not the best at the time, but Saif told her she was perfect and it would be great for her career and the prospects of the film at the Box Office.

We went to watch the movie Tashan. At this scene (pictured above), it seems that she was topless with saif, but we don’t know because the camera can TRICK US.

The latest one hears is that Tashan might not release at multiplexes at all. “No meetings have been held on this front since Thursday,” says Pune exhibitor Abrar Issak.
Three vital days are already lost and coupled with such adverse reviews, exhibitors are well-aware that Tashan will be a losing proposition, hence no compromise formula has been sought.
Importantly, exhibitors have vowed to teach Yash Raj a lesson by giving them a hard time for their future releases – including the upcoming Kunal Kohli film.

“We needed a big film right now, since there were practically no good releases all this while. But YRF played hard to get. But with all their future releases, there are other big films releasing simultaneously. We’ll see then,” says Abrar Issak, Pune exhibitor.

Before he didn’t knew what to name this Rani and Saif Ali Khan duo movie. FINALLY, Kunal Kohli has named his new film Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.

Our lives are filled with ups and downs, tears and joy. It’s during those periods when we’re down and out we all need a little help, a little love and a little magic. Magic that will wipe those tears, magic that will help us fight the bad times, and love… Do we ever need to explain why we need love? Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is about people like you and me who wish for a little bit of magic in our lives, and don’t realise the angels who bring it to us are right amongst us.”Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is slated to release on 27 June. The director has earlier made Hum Tum (Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherji) and Fanaa (Aamir Khan and Kajol) for YRF.

This will be the second movie from the YRF stable in 2008 after Tashan, which is releasing this friday (25 April).
