Katie Holmes Broadway play 'Dead Accounts' flops

Katie Holmes Broadway play 'Dead Accounts' flops

Katie Holmes' Broadway play 'Dead Accounts,' which opened last month will bring down its curtain on January 6- a full seven weeks ahead of schedule and just 44 regular performances.

The play opened on November 29 to mixed reviews, and reports say that the show's closure is due to poor ticket sales.

The Post's theater critic Elisabeth Vincentelli said of Holmes' performance that the 34-year-old actress had got one note - shrill, impatient - and she yelled it at top volume, which made a vein bulge on her slender neck.

She also said that with its cardboard characters and implausible developments, 'Dead Accounts' felt like a rough first draft, the New York Post reported.

The show had been touted as a comeback for Holmes after her high-profile, divorce from Tom Cruise earlier in the year.

Leonardo DiCaprio regrets not cashing on 'Titanic' fame

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio says he should have done more movies post his successful 1997 film "Titanic".

The 38-year-old rose to fame after playing the role of Jack Dawson in the epic love story. However, the actor feels he could not explore the new found fame then.

"I probably should have done more movies during that time period. I took a solid break. I didn't even understand what a hit was, you know?.

"That movie came out and people were like, 'This movie is doing amazingly well!' and I'm like, 'Good, that's great'," DiCaprio said on "Today" show.

Vidya Balan should wear Emerald: Astro-Numerologist

Vidya Balan should wear Emerald: Astro-Numerologist

After a stellar performance in 'Kahaani' and getting hitched to her beau just recently, she couldn't have had a better 2012. Astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi what the future holds for Vidya Balan (now Kapur) on the eve of her 35th birthday?

He says, "Vidya is a truly a 'new year' baby born on the 1st of January 1978 which makes her a Number 1 (Sun) person in numerology. Her sun sign is Capricorn (ruler Saturn - Number 8) and her destiny number adds up to Number 9 (Mars)" explains Bhavikk. "Speaking of her traits, Vidya is an extremely powerful, an achiever of sorts, does not fear struggle and a go-getter in life. Although she was lucky in to her entry in films, she has come a long way as a model and worked really hard, until she became a familiar face and a name to reckon with. If the impact of 'shani' made her go through a fair amount of struggle, it is the same planet which catapulted her in to one of the most promising actresses in the industry right from her first film. The 'mangal' effect brought some delays in her marriage life, but that's sorted now".

He adds, "Vidya will now be enter the 36th year of her life which indicates that her streak of good luck continues and she is here to stay even post marriage" predicts Bhavikk, adding that the actress' next release 'Ghanchakkar' will once again win her a lot of critical acclaim and even the film will do well at the box office.

"On the personal front, her match with producer Siddharth Roy Kapur is a good one and they are likely to have a blissfully wedded life ahead" he adds further. "Wearing an 'Emerald' on her smallest finger on a Wednesday morning (two hours after sunrise) will bring speed and stop delays in her life whatsoever" recommends Bhavikk very strongly before signing off.

Radhika Pandit considers 2012 lucky

Radhika Pandit considers 2012 lucky

Radhika Pandit is very thrilled that she has had two of the biggest hits of 2012 falling under her kitty. The actress was first seen in the film Addhuri, which is arguably the biggest hit of 2012 and then followed it up with a successful Drama.

"I couldn't have had a better year. With two of my films doing extremely well, it makes me feel very content," says Radhika, who also had her film Sagar releasing this year, which was an average performer at the box office.

Radhika recently signed a new flick Dilwala opposite Sumanth Shailendra Babu, where she is rumoured to have paid an amount much higher than the last film that she has signed, considering the fact that her release Addhuri, where she was teamed opposite newbie Dhruva Sarja, did exceptionally well at the box office.

Radhika, meanwhile, will next be seen on screen opposite Shivarajkumar in the Suri-directed Kaddipudi, which is currently in its post-production stage.

John Abraham: The ‘cage fight’ is my item song

John Abraham: The ‘cage fight’ is my item song

John Abraham talks about being sexy and edgy, and the severe action sequences which broke his bones and made him cry in Race 2, that also stars Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel.

You have performed Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in Race 2, something you have not done before...
When I was offered Race 2, it reminded me of Dhoom (2004) minus the bikes. I missed the bikes, but the mind-blowing action in Race 2 makes up for it. I had to practice MMA with stunt director Peter Hein. Two Vietnamese fighters — Son and Tun — coached me for two months to get my kicks, flexibility and agility right. When I started rehearsing, for the first few days, I had tears in my eyes as my body went through excruciating pain. I'd scream dao (it means pain in Viatnamese), but they pushed me. I almost lost faith in myself, but didn't give up.

What kept you going?
I want to set a certain benchmark for raw action in Bollywood. I believe in stunts that are real and believable. I've done a cage fight in the movie without cables. This is my item song for Race 2 ! I have fought with a 300-pound South African professional fighter, Andrew, in the film. He was a sweet, docile guy otherwise, but once he entered the ring, I had to fight to save my life. The reality of action is very evident when you see us bashing each other's guts out. You can tell it's not fake.

Given the intensity of the fight, the injuries must be severe...
My back was bleeding, I had a 14-inch gash. I cracked my shin bone and navicular bone in the ankle area. I had to take a two-week break from action. My orthopedic surgeon joked about putting me on a retainership in his hospital, given the number of times I visited him.

You work hard on your body...
I train and eat differently for every film. My body is like a machine. When you are muscled, achieving flexibility is not easy. I've still managed a split and 145-degree kicks in the film. Sylvester Stallone has been a great influence. He defies age.

From a sexy guy to an action hero, are you changing your territory?
I look at myself as a commodity. Cinema is a visual medium. I want to draw a balance between my sex appeal and the rawness of the stunts I perform. I like being edgy. Normal is boring. It's all about attitude; you either have it or you don't. I play an anti-hero in Race 2. Bad has never looked so good.

Race 2, produced by Tips Industries Ltd and UTV Motion Pictures, releases on January 25.

Deepika Padukone: I wish, I was a part of 'Rockstar'

Deepika Padukone: I wish, I was a part of 'Rockstar'

If Deepika Padukone is satisfied after doing romantic comedy 'Cocktail' in 2012, she wishes she had been part of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer 2011 musical hit 'Rockstar'.

"I am more than happy I was part of 'Cocktail'. It was the most satisfying experience to do the film. The audience really appreciated me a lot in 'Cocktail'," Deepika told IANS.

"So this year, I am extremely happy about 'Cocktail' and have no regrets. But if you ask me about last year, then yes, I would say, I wish I was part of 'Rockstar'."

The actress had dated Ranbir for some time and even featured with him in the hit movie 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' before parting ways.

'Rockstar', a musical extravaganza that rocked the box office, was helmed by Imtiaz Ali who roped in Pakistani American Nargis Fakhri as Ranbir's love interest in the movie.

If Deepika pats herself for doing 'Cocktail', she candidly admits that some of her films disappointed her.

"I don't regret anything but, yes, I have been disappointed with two to three films that I did in the last two years," the 26-year-old said.

"I put equal amount of effort to each and every film but when it doesn't work, it is very disappointing. All of us face ups and downs in our lives, but all we can do is we can learn from our experiences."

However, she refused to name those disappointing films, saying it would be "unfair to name any films because ultimately it's me who had chosen the film ... so I would never name them".

Top Malaika Arora Khan item numbers

Top Malaika Arora Khan item numbers

Malaika Arora Khan is indeed the item queen of Bollywood. With smashing hits like Chaiyya Chaiyya and Munni Badnam in her kitty, her absolutely stunning looks and sensational dance moves make her one of the most sought out item girls in Bollywood.

A R Rahman's composition, Sukhwinder Singh's voice, a running train, hills and to add to the sight you've Shah Rukh and Malaika. Yes! We're talking about Chaiyaan Chaiyaan from Dil Se. The song not only highlighted Malaika's curves she also came across as an raunchy beauty in the song. So much so that people still remember her as 'Chaiyaan Chaiyaan girl'.

Malaika's desi avatar has always been a hit and right from day one the song raked up at the chart busters. Her zandu baam step became so famous that almost all the actress' performed at the song at various shows. The song was one of the biggest hits of the year.

Malaika escalated the hotness meter with her scintillating performance in the song. Not only Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor, we all swayed to her moves.

For the second time Malaika was paired up with King Khan for an item number and once again took away the lime light. Malaika was at her sexiest best in the song.

Malaika's oomph factor in the song was a treat to the eyes. We can't expect anyone else to do this number with so much of panache and elegance.

She had thirteen other girls to match up with but Malaika outnumbered all others with her panache and elegant dance moves. In her diva avatar she had all the men saying 'jee lene de is pal ko'.

Richa Sharma's soulful voice and desire in Malaika's eye made this song one of the most popular song of the year. Although the star cast in itself was the highlight, the song made huge waves.

Mahi Gill has to weight and watch

Mahie Gill has to weight and watch

In Tigmanshu Dhulia’s sequel of Sahib Biwi aur Gangster, she has a rustic, yet royal look. The filmmaker has asked her to gain weight to suit her character in the film.
Mahie Gill has been on a yo-yo diet. The actress has been following a cyclical pattern of repetitive loss and gain of body weight.

As she is shooting for two films simultaneously, one that requires her to be fit as a fiddle and the other a slightly heavy look, Mahie Gill has been maintaining her body shape according to the shoot schedules.

In Tigmanshu Dhulia's sequel of Sahib Biwi aur Gangster, she has a rustic, yet royal look. The filmmaker has asked her to gain weight to suit her character in the film.

While in Apoorva Lakhia's remake of a 1970s Amitabh Bachchan film Zanjeer, she plays an extremely glamourous character the one that was essayed by Bindu in the original. As she will be seen in a sexy avatar, the director has told her to be in shape to carry off the skimpy outfits.

A source said, "She has been following a diet to lose and gain weight to suit her two diverse roles. Recently she also had to be in top shape to shoot for the cover of a men's magazine."

The source added, "The most difficult part about shooting for these two films is not only that they are being shot in different cities but maintaining the drastically different looks in both the projects. It could take a toll on her health but she is balancing both with a proper diet and exercises with professional help. But she does not seem to mind as both films are giving her a chance to portray diverse roles."

Priyanka Chopra upsets Katrina Kaif!

Priyanka Chopra upsets Katrina Kaif!

Priyanka Chopra, who has been selected for Ali Abbas Zafar's movie Gunday, has miffed Katrina Kaif. Katrina Kaif was the first choice for Gundey starring Arjun Kapoor and Ranvir Singh. But the news that Priyanka Chopra was approached first for the movie has made Katrina Kaif angry.

A source told a leading daily, "News of PC bagging the film right under her nose is not true. Katrina loved the script of Gunday, but she had given her dates for the Hindi remake of the Hollywood film Knight And Day with Hrithik Roshan already. And that's why she couldn't do the film."

Priyanka Chopra upsets Katrina Kaif!

The source further added, "She wanted to be part of the film. Kat has worked with Ali in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and the two get along very well. She is also a close friend of Arjun (Kapoor), who's in the film. Even though she let go of the film, she hangs out with Ali Abbas and the gang. News of Priyanka being the first choice is not true."

Well, Katrina's loss is Priyanka's gain!

Sridevi: I am very sensitive & get easily hurt

Sridevi: I am very sensitive & get easily hurt

Oye! FM Sabse Filmi, went 'English Vinglish' with Bollywood star Sridevi as she spoke her heart out on renowned host Sid K's show Oye! Talkies.

When Sid probed her on the secret behind her young look at this age, Sridevi replied, "The reason I look young is because I have Rasam and Sambhar everyday."

She further revealed about some interesting incidences while filming for 'English Vinglish'.

While she was shooting for 'English Vinglish' in Pune, a guy dressed up like a groom chased her in the middle of the road with a garland in his hand. She of course was terrified until she realised that he was only a fan who was about to get married but saw her on the road and left his wedding in between just to greet her.

She went on a confessing spree on the show, saying "I am a parrot. I just mug up my lines and I have done that all my life as I am not that fluent in any of the languages whether it is Hindi, English, Malayalam or Tamil."

Sridevi poured her heart out about her family life saying that she gets very upset with her two kids and her husband Boney Kapoor when she cooks affectionately for them, but they refuse to come to the table for dinner as her hubby is always busy on the phone and her kids are always playing video games. She then howls at them and the moment she does that, they quietly come and take their seats on the dinner table. She claims that she has now sorted out her family members.

She also confessed that she is very sensitive and gets hurt easily. Though, in front of her family, she is a joker and her family members keep pulling her leg on small things and she makes them laugh, even when she is serious as they don't take her seriously most of the time.

She further added, "I have a problem with numbers, I remember only 4 numbers. My husband's, two kids and my sister's number, besides that I don't have a clue who else to call."

Sid told her that he found out from sources close to her, that she is terrified of cats and runs in the opposite direction when she sees one. To this, Sridevi emotionally replied, "When I was kid, my pet cat that was my heart and soul passed away. Since then I feel sad when I see cats."

When Sid brought the topic of Ram Gopal Varma and how Ramu was obsessed about her and publicly said that he was envious of Boney Kapoor because he married Sridevi. Sridevi blushed saying that, "When I heard Ramu's statement initially I was very embarrassed. But when I thought about it, I realised it was one of the best compliments I got."

When asked to her who among the new actresses had the potential to be a superstar? Without batting an eyelid, the diva said 'Deepika Padukone though Vidya, Priyanka and Sonakshi are also very impressive.'

Sid told her that he has watched her song 'Kaante Nahi Katte' from MR. INDIA a thousand times, to which Sridevi said that it was not known to anyone that while filming that popular song she was running high fever at 103 degrees.

Asked about her idea of a perfect romantic date, Sridevi giggled saying "My idea of a romantic date is a long drive, soothing music and a quiet dinner."

Mamta Mohandas Hikes Up Price Post Wedding

Mamta Mohandas Hikes Up Price Post Wedding

Actress Mamta Mohandas has received her highest pay cheque yet for her first signing post wedding. The actress will star opposite Dileep in the East Coast Vijayan-produced film My Boss.

She has allegedly been paid `15 lakh for her role, a huge amount for a local star, who also happens to be married.

"It's a plum, performance-oriented role and Mamta was the only actress in Mollywood who fits the bill. Also, since it's a full-length role, she has allotted close to 30 days exclusively for the film," says a source from the unit.

The deal, which was inked before her wedding in December last year, elevates Mamta to being one among the very few top paid actress in industry, second only to Kavya Madhavan, who has reportedly been paid `17 lakh for her next film. Of course, actresses from other film industries who bag roles here get paid a lot more - anywhere between `15 lakh to `30 lakh.

My Boss will be directed by Jithu Joseph, of Mummy and Me fame. Dileep plays a software engineer from Kuttanadu, and Mamta plays his boss who works out of the parent company in Mumbai. "Mamta's character is that of an Australian citizen and it is the cultural clash between them that adds colour to the love story," reveals director Jithu, who has also scripted the film. The rom-com, which also stars Lena, Salim Kumar, Sai Kumar and Suresh Krishna, is scheduled to begin filming in May and will mostly be shot in Mumbai.

Now, when a self-proclaimed billionaire like KRK says he has signed on Katrina Kaif for his next film, we can only stare at the post in disbelief and realize only too soon that it is an April Fool's joke. KRK's attempt at humour unfortunately falls flat as his Twitter followers were'nt fooled.

The producer, actor and reality show star posted: "Good morning and kiss to Katrina Kaif for accepting my offer of Deshdrohi 2. Now for sure #Deshdrohi2 will be blockbuster. Love u Kat. Muaah." Wait till Katrina hears of this, KRK!

Jacqueline Fernandez Wants to Play Safe, Choosy

Jacqueline Fernandez Wants to Play Safe, Choosy

Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez is just three films old in Bollywood, but she is already being choosy about her projects. And rightly so! She says she has set long-term plans for herself.

"If you have long-term plans set for yourself, I think it's really important not to rush into things and to know exactly what kind of a graph you want for yourself and your career, especially with the kind of roles that you choose," the 26-year-old said here.

"After 'Murder 2', I feel, unfortunately most of the actors get stereotyped," added the actress, who started her Bollywood career with "Aladin" in 2009.

For now, she is looking forward to the release of "Housefull 2".

Jacqueline, who plays Bobby, one of the four brides, in the Sajid Khan comedy film, says in real life wedding bells are far from ringing for her.

"I have pretty much just started with my career and things have just about started working for me and I have signed a couple of projects.

"When I think it's the time (to get married), I will definitely be able to talk about it. I don't think there is anything to hide about it, but it's not really on the horizon," said Jacqueline.

Besides "Housefull 2", Jacqueline is also working in "Race 2", a sequel of the 2008-hit "Race", and "Total Dhamaal". "Housefull 2" hits the big screen April 5.

Rani Mukerji Snaps at Journalist

Rani Mukerji is known for her short temper and is definitely not media's favourite child! Rani has once again upset the media when she recently lost her cool and snapped at a reporter.
Rani Mukherjee's anger is not unknown in the media circles. So we were not surprised when Zoom reported that Rani became very angry and snapped at a reporter who was trying to click her pictures in chappals!

Not long ago, Rani Mukherjee had made a big fuss when a few journalists took pictures of her with Aditya Chopra and family at the Mumbai airport. It was even reported that Rani Mukherjee had once even snapped at India's Most Desirable host, Simi Garewal when Simi kept trying to prod about Rani's relationship with Aditya Chopra.

Well, well.....guys, do you think we can make a movie on Rani Mukherjee and name it 'Rani ko gussa kyon aata hai'?

Porn Movies should be Legalised in India: Poonam Pandey

Porn Movies should be Legalised in India: Poonam Pandey

In a conservative society like India, where topics like 'sex' and 'pornography' are a taboo to discuss, controversial model Poonam Pandey thinks it in the other way. During an exclusive interview with OneIndia, Poonam said that porn movies should be legalised in India.

Poonam said, “There is nothing wrong in legalising porn films in India. Everyone has porn clips in their cell phones, but no one has the guts to watch it in open. Sex films are always watched under a hidden situation in India. It's new generation, so whats wrong in watching it openly?”

Poonam, who has gained fame with her stripping acts, also defends porn star Sunny Leone who has been chosen to play the female lead in Jism 2. “What's wrong if Sunny Leone is working in a Bollywood movie? She deserves it, hence I appreciate her.”

Hansika Motwani is one actress who wears her heart on her sleeve. The 20-year-old had earlier celebrated her birthday by adopting 20 street kids in Mumbai. Now the actress has been signed up as a brand ambassador for an old age home in Mumbai.
