Deepika Padukone’s lungi and shirt look in Chennai Express is something never seen before and it is generating a considerate amount of curiosity about the movie.

Deepika revealed that it was director Rohit Shetty and actor Shahrukh Khan who came up with the idea.

“The idea to wear a ‘lungi’ is not mine actually. It was Shah Rukh and Rohit who came up with it. We had to quickly do a photoshoot because we were losing the light. They were like ‘Why don’t we give her this lungi and make her look modern’, “said the actress.

“That’s something new and I hope it works,” added Deepika about her look. We hope so too! The trendsetter that Deepika is, we hope that this is not going to follow suit!

The shirt that I am wearing in the posters also belongs to SRK, only the sunglasses are mine,” she said.

It was more than five years back that we saw Deepika Padukone and Shahrukh Khan together in Om Shanthi Om. It will be interesting to wait and watch if the pair is going to recreate the magic in this movie as well.

There was speculation that the actress would be working with Salman Khan in the film Kick. However Deepika denies it saying, “That’s all speculation. It probably stems from the fact that I had expressed a desire to work with Salman Khan. Maybe these stories are coming from there. There is nothing concrete on that film yet.”

Meanwhile Deepika who is riding high on the success of her film, Race 2 has three more films lined up – Kochadaiyaan with Rajinikanth, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, her film with Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela.

Plans on for a sequel to ABCD?

Plans on for a sequel to ABCD?

ABCD-Any Body Can Dance

Remo D’Souza has signed a two-film contract with UTV Motion Pictures and one of them could be a sequel to his just released 3D dance film ABCD – Anybody Can Dance if sources are to be believed.

“UTV has whole-heartedly backed my vision of making India’s first ever 3D dance film ‘ABCD’. They were kicked about the project from the word go. I’m really happy I had them as my producer,” Remo said in an interview.

“It’s important for a producer to trust his director and his vision and UTV has done just that. I’m really excited that I have been offered two more films by UTV – one of which could be the sequel to ABCD. UTV and I have had a super journey and we are only strengthening our bond now,” he added.

Siddharth Roy Kapur, managing director, Studios, Disney UTV, said: “Remo is of course a gifted choreographer.”

He added, “We have had a wonderful experience with Remo on ABCD. The film showcases his amazing ability to thrill and entertain his audience while at the same time to handle emotion and drama with sensitivity and depth.”

Released Friday, ABCD stars ace choreographers like Prabhudheva, Ganesh Acharya and Terence Lewis.

“He has worked with a team of superb dancers and brought out the actor in each of them. To shoot an arduous dance film at this massive scale in 3D is not an easy job, but Remo coupled his talent and ability with patience and perseverance to make a superb film. We’re thrilled to be continuing our association with him, and here’s to making many more great movies together!” said Kapoor.

ABCD has got rave reviews and is running to house-full crowds. However, critics have not given the film a thumbs up and have emphasized that the actors in the movie were amazing dancers, but they lacked acting skills. Let’s hope the sequel – if any – is going to be much better in terms of performances!

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bollywood sensation is going places

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bollywood sensation is going places

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the latest Bollywood actor is going places. After his powerful performances in Gangs of Wasseypoor, Kahaani and Talaash, he has won hearts worldwide. After struggling for 12 years in Bollywood he has gone from a watchman to a internationally acclaimed actor.

His acting in Patang was well appreciated in Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals, his subtle acting talent was praised by world’s most reknown critic Roger Ebert. And he also happens to be one of the very few Indian actors who has been recognized internationally.

However, it’s really sad that an actor of such caliber is not recognized in Indian film industry. He wasn’t nominated for any of the awards in India. This is the perfect evidence to show that Indian film awards are purely based on popularity looks and not on talent.

Nawaz feels formula films no longer work for the present audience who are pretty much fed up with mindless and cliche flicks. He thinks movies with proper logic, strong script and true acting are the ones which will setup the new trend.

Nawaz is now associated with three international co-productions with Dar Motion Pictures. Arun Rangachari,the Producer says, “Nawazuddin is one of the most talented actors of our time. He is also now being increasingly liked by the audiences after Gangs of Wasseypoor and Talaash. We will be working with him on Monsoon Shootout, Lunch Box and Haram Khor”
