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 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.”

"I am getting completely pampered by mum and everyone at home. It's always good to be in Chennai... My love," she said. While spending quality time at home, Trisha is also happy to be back with her doggies. "It feels so good to be back home on my bed with my doggies," Trisha said. Trisha will resume work in a week to complete " Dammu".

Kareena Kapoor to Fight for Equality in Bollywood

Kareena Kapoor to Fight for Equality in Bollywood

Vidya Balan's success story has given actresses the hope for a brighter tomorrow in the Indian film industry. But they have a long way to go, says Kareena Kapoor adding that she will fight for equal "pay cheques" in filmdom.

The 31-year-old shared her side of the story in a talk about "How Does a Heroine Become the Hero?" at the India Today Conclave 2012.

"I was in Los Angeles sometime back when I got to know that 'Salt' was actually written for Tom Cruise. And Angelina Jolie was actually the second choice, it wasn't Brad Pitt or anyone else. In India, there's no such choice.

"It's always between three or four Khans or other male actors. I guess female actors are there for just dancing with them. We have to stand behind Shah Rukh and Salman (Khan) and say, 'Hey! I'm here too, give me something to do.' And the paychecks... what Salman gets and what I get... let's not even get there," said Kareena.

She is said to be the highest earning female star in Bollywood, and reportedly demanded Rs.8 crore for Madhur Bhandarkar's "Heroine". But Kareena still doesn't consider herself a hero among all heroines.

"I don't think I'm a hero because all the films like '3 Idiots', 'RA.One' and 'Bodyguard' that made Rs.100 crore-Rs.150 crore, their producers and all the three Khans took home their money. What am I left with? 'Chhammak challo'?

"I don't get a pay cheque as much as them. I am not on the same platform as them. But I am going to fight for it, and hopefully one day we will get there. But I do believe that god has been kind. Somewhere my hard work has been recognised, and I am also glad that there's been a stellar performance by Vidya Balan and she proved to be the hero of 2011 (with 'The Dirty Picture')," she added.

The year awaits a power-packed performance by Kareena in "Heroine" and she says: "I am giving it my very best."

"And for a change it is fun not standing behind or beside Shah Rukh or Salman," she quipped.

Samantha Turns a Safe Bet

Samantha Turns a Safe Bet

Filmmakers believe that this actress has a strong market in Telugu and Tamil, though she hasn't delivered a hit here.

Samantha may not have single big release or hit to her credit in K-Town but she seems to be sought-after by filmmakers here. The actress started off her career in K-Town with small films like Baana Kathaadi and Moscowin Kaveri and with Neethane Enn Ponnvasantham, has attempted to move into the big league. The actress is currently working on this trilingual with Jiiva, Nani and Aditya Roy Kapur (for Tamil, Telugu and Hindi respectively). So what makes her so saleable? An industry insider says, "Samantha's last film in Telugu with Mahesh Babu, Dookudu, was a superhit. She has a strong market in Telugu and now with her signing on big films here, filmmakers think she is the best bet for movies that will be released in both markets."

As far as her remuneration goes, Samantha is reportedly currently charging 75 lakh in Tollywood per flick. Says a source, "Samantha is probably taking home a lesser salary in K-Town as she is yet to deliver a hit as the leading lady. Plus, she has worked with only smaller actors before. NEP will be a test of sorts for her." The actress is seen as more affordable than the two other popular Tollywood girls, Ileana and Anushka, in the south. Moreover, as everyone knows, both these actresses are also extremely choosy about their projects and don't sign on a flick easily -especially in Kollywood.
