Anurag Kashyap impresses legendary Martin Scorsese


Anurag Kashyap, who has become the most versatile director of Bollywood by making movies Dev D, Black Friday, No Smoking has now got acclamation from none other than the legendary Hollywood director Martin Scorsese after watching his Gangs of Wasseypur Series.

For Anurag Kashyap this is for sure the most special moment of his life because a decade ago he saw Martin Scorsese’s movie ‘Taxi Driver’ and got inspired to become a script writer and then eventually he evolved into an outstanding director.

Anurag also mentioned that his “Gangs of Wasseypur” series is inspired from Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” which is still one of the most influential movies in Hollywood. GOW was screened at 65th Cannes film festival in the prestegious director’s fort night section which is an ama ing achievement.

Kashyap also mentioned that he sent his movies personally to Scorsese and got a letter of appreciation from him saying “I thoroughly enjoyed Dev D and Gangs of Wasseypur and found them exciting and inspiring.
And the best part is Scorsese wants to meet Anurag personally for which Anurag is truly honoured and said “I actually got the letter in December, but I had kept quiet about it. I don’t know why I felt like posting it today. It was a great feeling to receive a letter from Scorsese. I was invited to be on the sets of his film, but I couldn’t go. I just want to watch him work someday. He has been a great inspiration and I really think this letter is the biggest award I have ever got.”

India needs directors like Anurag Kashyap who truly defines the beauty of a cinematic experience. Kudos Anurag!

Run Run Run, don’t walk to watch the new video by Dragonette


Dragonette is hands down one of the most danciest bands out there with dance floor jams like Hello and Big In Japan out there and now we have Run Run Run the first track off their latest album Bodyparts. The video follows Martina walking through New York City, partying, performing, getting covered in red blood-like liquid, getting drenched in water, and basically having an all-around party-for-one rager. If I was Martina, I’d probably be covered in a lot worse than fake-blood or ketchup… wait, that sounded weird. Yeah just watch the fast paced video, would you?

Dragonette is up for Dance Album of the Year at the 2013 JUNO Awards. Do you think they deserve it? Tell us in the comments section below and check out their video for Run Run Run here.

Harry Potter alumni up for magical new roles

Harry Potter alumni up for magical new roles

Harry Potter Trio 2

The last Harry Potter film may have ended two summers ago, but for us fans, the magic lives on through Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. So here’s your update on their upcoming projects.

Radcliffe continues to surprise us by choosing unexpected characters. Since Harry Potter ended, Radcliffe has played a singing and dancing entrepreneur in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, a gay poet in Kill Your Darlings and a father in The Woman in Black. If that wasn’t enough to change his image of the boy wi ard we grew up with, Radcliffe is in talks to play the hunchbacked Igor in Frankenstein.

Watson tackled an American accent and shared a romance with Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Coming up, she steals from celebrities in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and faces an epic flood in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Her next possible role could have her wearing glass slippers. The actress is in talks to star in Kenneth Branaugh’s live action adaptation of the fairy tale, Cinderella.

Grint’s film projects have not been as high profile as Watson or Radcliffe’s, but fans will still see their favourite red-haired wi ard. This time, Grint will be heading to the small screens. Grint is set to star in Super Clyde, a television comedy where he plays a fast food employee-turned superhero. Considering it’s a CBS sitcom, it’s safe to assume he will be using an American accent.

Based on these film choices, the trio of actors is trying to shed the image they’ve held for ten years. But for those of us who grew up with the series, they will always be Harry, Ron and Hermione.

What do you think of their upcoming projects? What characters do you want to see Daniel, Emma or Rupert play next?

Watch the first trailer from The Hangover 3

Watch the first trailer from The Hangover 3


The final installment of The Hangover won’t be released until late spring, but today you can watch a sneak peek of the absolute insanity that will take place during the conclusion of the trilogy. That’s right, the movie that started with Mike Tyson and a missing tooth is now grouped into films like The Hobbit and Batman. It’s awesome.

Thankfully, this sneak peek of the third film already looks like an improvement from The Hangover 2, which made no qualms about using the exact same script as the first film. The usual suspects reunite for a funeral, which for some reason inspires them to burn down Las Vegas. Oh, and Heather Graham is back and Melissa McCarthy has joined the cast. So that’s pretty sweet.

The Hangover 3 hits threatres on May 24.

Justin Bieber goes on Twitter rant against media

Justin Bieber goes on Twitter rant against media


Justin Bieber needs a blog. The Canadian singer has gone on a Twitter rant to share his feelings towards the media, which resulted in a series of 13 tweets last night. Or for most people his age, a proposal for an essay.

The pop star has been having a string of bad luck while on the UK leg of his Believe Tour. First the Biebs had his ‘worst birthday’ after some of Justin’s underage friends were denied admission in the club where he was throwing a party. Later that week, Justin was met with boo’s when he took the stage at London’s O2 Arena for this concert after arriving on stage 45 minutes late.

The Biebs has reached his boiling point, taking to Twitter to denounce what he says are false reports in the media about his actions. Here’s a summary:

rumors rumors and more rumors. nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt now im just gonna be positive. cant bring me down. im focused on the good things in life. im blessed and not forgetting it. im giving back every day for it. cant phase me. fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u cant tell me different. we know the truth as long as my family, friends, and fans r with me u can say whatever. we are all equal in God’s eyes & we have a responsibility to each other.

So make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive….or say when i came out of my show with my shirt off because after performing for 2 hours i might be sweaty i was going into a club (really?) or any girl i stand next to is my girl or that i dont care, or that i dont feel, or that a 19 year old going to a club in europe is wild…

and be careful of the judgement u pass but know this…im only judged by one power, and i serve him. so yeah I will continue being me. i will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing…and u are welcome to join, because i carry no hate. We got to much love for that. Im about the music.

If you can get past the grammar and punctuation, it looks like Justin manages to stay positive for the most part while voicing his frustrations over what he describes as “rumours”. Justin’s final tweet was “back to the music”, which consists of continuing his UK tour. No word on whether said shirt will be on or off.

Hello friends, I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin’ Tom.

It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.

I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future.

I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done.


Your Friend always,

Stompin’ Tom Connors

Shahrukh Khan says, ladies first

Shahrukh Khan says, ladies first

Shahrukh Khan

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, falling on 8 March every year, Shahrukh Khan is taking a laudable initiative towards women.

King Khan has taken a pledge that henceforth in all his films the heroine’s name would appear ahead of him in the credit titles.

“I would request to all those who I am working with, starting with ‘Chennai Express’ (to do it). I don’t know whether this is going to bring a change but the point needs to be raised,” said SRK.

“With the mark of 100 years of Indian cinema and Women’s Day coming up, it would be a nice combination. In ‘Chennai Express’, Deepika Padukone’s name will appear first,” he added.

Deepika Padukone is cast opposite Shahrukh in Rohit Shetty’s “Chennai Express”. On hearing this announcement, Deepy was happy yet kept calm. Shahrukh said: “She was not jumping on the roof top. She said, ‘It’s great, but I hope even others start following this.’”

This Women’s Day TATA Tea’s “Jaago Re” campaign has started a new initiative – Women First – with Shahrukh Khan.

The superstar unveiled the ad, directed by R. Balki. The actor just like Big B, stressed on the fact that no matter what, “women’s position in every field needs to be respected”.

“Right from my mom to all the actresses I work with are the most important women in my life,” he added.

The latest commercial of Slice will see Katrina Kaif stuck in a love triangle. The actress is very excited about the new ad. The actress had showcased her seductive side in an earlier campaign — Aamsutra, and this time, the ad captures her playful nature.

Katrina, who endorses the brand, said in a statement, “As always, I am very excited to be part of the new Slice campaign – it’s an interesting concept that highlights the taste and superior experience of Mango Slice.”

The new Slice Ad will go on air this Thursday. The commercial starts on a light playful note with Katrina, a young man and another woman taking a brisk walk in the beautiful, lush green meadows of flowers. A foot-tapping remix of evergreen Bollywood number “Haal kaisa hai janab ka”, sung by Shalmali Kholgade, sets the mood.

The playful side comes out when Katrina blind folds the young man and asks him to choose between Slice and another mango drink. “The playfulness about the story is quite infectious and for the first time there is a hint of a love triangle,” said Katrina.

Crowd will clap during Ajay Devgn’s entry in Himmatwala

Crowd will clap during Ajay Devgn’s entry in Himmatwala

ajay-Devgn (2)

Ajay Devgn ’s “Himmatwala” has been making huge bu in the B-Town especially because of its unique theme of revival of the 1980’s magic in Bollywood cinema. It is directed by Sajid Khan who delivered blockbusters like Hey Baby and Housefull series and is all set release on 29th of March.

Sajid Khan started the bu again saying Ajay Devgn’s intro in the movie is a highlight and he’s confident that people will clap for that scene and if not he is ready to refund the ticket money!

He said “If you talk about the 1980s – what used to happen in 1980s movies – it doesn’t happen any more – the hero’s entry. Except for a couple of Salman Khan’s films, no importance is given to the hero’s entry. The kind of entry that Amitabh Bachchan had in ‘Coolie’, for me, it’s the entry of all time,” and added he liked Ajay Devgn’s entry in ‘Phool Aur Kaante’.

This is an open challenge that if viewers won’t clap on Ajay’s entry in ‘Himmatwala’, I will refund the ticket money.” Said Sajid.

“I have designed such an entry for Ajay Devgn that I was clapping while I was writing it, I was clapping while I was shooting it. I have given a lot of stress on entry,” he added.

The movie stars Tamannah as the female lead who is a southern actress and music is composed by Sajid-wahid which is already a big hit.
