We told you about this film, now Upen Patel has to spoi the whole plot.
Love triangles formulas have been working in Bollywood for years and now Upen Patel has joined Ranbir-n-Katrina in Raj Kumar Santoshi ‘Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani’. Ranbir Kapoor plays the leading role in the movie and Upen claims that ‘if Ranbir is like Aamir (Khan) in ‘Andaz Apna Apna’, I’m like Salman in that film.”

Upen said that when he listened to his role he fell in love with it and the actor confirms that it is not a special appearance as he says “I have forty days of work’ in the movie. Katrina is also one of the reasons why Upen agreed to do the movie as the two are from London and they got along big time. The two had earlier acted in “Namaste London’ but this time Katrina and Upen will be seen romancing in the comedy.

Raj Kumar Santoshi is attempting a comedy after fourteen yeas and his last ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ had left audiences in splits so lets hope the ‘Ajab Prem’ with his ‘Gazab Kahani’ can recreate the humor.

flop flop flop…ALL BECAUSE OF UPEN PATEL

The hunt for the next Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai arrives today in the UK, when the first British acting school dedicated to training future Bollywood stars opens its doors for applications.
The Ealing-based project is the first overseas branch of the Mumbai stage school Actor Prepares, founded by the Bollywood star Anupam Kher, who appeared in Bend it Like Beckham. He aims to address the exodus of talented British Asians who move 4,500 miles to India in search of fortune after finding opportunities here limited to bit-parts in soap operas.

Kher chose to launch Actor Prepares in London partly because of the popularity of Bollywood films in Britain; they have long been a source of nostalgia and, for second-generation immigrants, a means of connecting with their heritage. The school aims to be an Indian cinema version of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (Rada), with professional actors coming in from Mumbai to pass on their knowledge.

Auditions for the first batch of students will take place in July; applicants must perform an X Factor-style act in front of a panel of judges including Kher and Tannishtha Chatterjee, who played the lead role in the film version of Monica Ali’s Brick Lane. Around 30 students will be selected to join the course, and the three months of classes begin in September: successful candidates will be trained in Bollywood dance, martial arts and diction, and can choose to study in English or Hindi. Students will also learn yoga to help them better control their bodies and minds.

Bollywood is notoriously hard to break into and the full-time course costs £6,000 per student.
But there are also scholarships for candidates from west London the school is part of the Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College. Actor Prepares also runs a talent agency, which will represent students after their studies in return for a percentage of their fees.
“Bollywood is making its presence felt all over the world,” said Hemendra Bhatia, the international dean of Actor Prepares. “In India, we have students from London, the USA, Germany and Canada.”

If the London school succeeds, the management of Actor Prepares plan to expand the franchise to Durban and Sydney.

Sabina Sheema, 23, from west London, was part of the second intake of students at Actor Prepares in Mumbai, which she joined in 2006 after meeting Kher at a function in the UK. After the course, she won the Indian reality TV talent show Zee Cinestars. She has since made a Hindi movie, Fast Forward, and is currently working on a “South” film one which is dubbed into the languages of India’s southern states. At the end of the month she will return to London to shoot another Bollywood project.

“You learn different ways you can put a character into a situation,” she said, “how to be an extrovert and how to do it from the inside; how to use your body in different ways. You start from basics of how to walk properly, how to sit, what to look out for when you’re working with a camera.”

British Asians who made it big over there :

*Upen Patel
Patel, 27, grew up in Brent, north-west London, and studied computer science at the University of Hertfordshire. As a student he was spotted by a model scout and appeared in campaigns for Hugo Boss and Paul Smith, before landing his first Bollywood part in the thriller 36 China Town (2006). The following year he appeared in Namastey London, a box office hit about British Asian youngsters who do not conform to their parents’ more traditional expectations.

*Katrina Kaif
Born in Hong Kong in 1984 to a Kashmiri Muslim father and British mother, Kaif began modelling jewellery in London at the age of 14. Her first Bollywood film was Boom (2003). Despite her good looks, Kaif was hindered by speaking Hindi with a heavy accent, so many of her films had to be dubbed. But she has since taken dancing and Hindi lessons to better assimilate into Bollywood culture.

Suddenly, all the entertainment world seems to be flooded by steamy pictures of Deepika Padukone with Upen Patel. These pictures, which are apparently some three years old had been taken as a part of some photoshoot. The question here is: Why are they all over the net now? It could be some prank from a naughty mind. Some also blame Upen for it saying that since Deepika is a hot property now, he has deliberately released these pics as a part of cheap publicity and to revive the rumours of him and Deepika.
Says a source close to Deepika, “Why are these pictures coming out now? After three years? Right now Deepika is hot property; it can’t be a co-incidence that these pictures are suddenly popping up in everyone’s mailboxes.”
Upen has defended the allegations by being blissfully aware, “The pictures are something from the past. I don’t even remember them, if you know what I mean. I did some photo shoot with her for Wendell many years ago. Who ever is behind spreading these pictures has an agenda to spoil my image in the public eye but I am not at fault here.”
Whoever may be at fault, you guys treat your eyes with some hot pics of a hot chick with a hot model.

March 26, 2008

Bollywood hunk Upen Patel is dating two ladies, Tabu and Tanisha at one time. The only difference between his two love ladies is that one is young and the other is older to him. It seems Upen wants to taste the flavor of both the ages.

He developed a special feeling for Tanisha while shooting for One Two Three. They are spotted close to each other on the set. The two also shared some hot scenes in the film. Tanisha’s name was also linked up with Uday Chopra after Neal N Nikki. The news that they will get married soon went far and wide. But, it died mid-way.

Few days back, Upen had smooch Tabu at a party in the presence of all and simultaneously praised her personality. The duo was totally involved in love and enjoying each other’s company to the fullest. The way they were together openly, it was almost decided that Upen is Tabu’s ultimate man. Now that he has started a new affair with Tanisha, his relationship with Tabu has become doubtful. Still Upen is heard praising Tabu in front of his close friends. It seems, he is confused between Tabu and Tanisha.

Stupid sluts I tell you, to be hanging around with HIM. Not attractive, not a good actor, always bordering on C-list. Seriously Tabu, get someone older. Let the other slut Tanisha be with him. He looks so greasy.
