Pooja Bedi Blasts Salman Khan

Image
Ever since her eviction from Bigg Boss, Pooja Bedi has taken to her microblogging site to discuss the reality show.

Apart from sharing her experiences in the house, she has been bashing the show's co-host Salman Khan.

Reacting to an episode in which he entered the house and interacted with the contestants, Bedi said, "It's clear Salman went in there to demoralise, confuse, hurt and lie to Sky.

Any guesses as to why he would misuse his position to do so?" She later went on to add that Salman's aggresive behaviour towards the participants was uncalled for.

"Salman previously had threatened Sid, and said, he would kick his arse. Hosts cannot intimidate contestants! Wrong. if contestants are bad, they get nominated and if public dislikes them, they get eliminated.

That's reality TV, not hosts threatening, if Salman can get aggressive with contestants, why is he upset they do so with each other?" Wonder what will happen when she comes face-to-face with K…

John Abraham To Get Engaged

Image
Abraham plans to make it official with girlfriend Priya Runchal next year.

Bipasha Basu waited nine years for John Abraham to commit to marriage before eventually parting ways with him earlier this year. But new girlfriend Priya Runchal seems to have done the impossible by getting him to finally mend his ways.

Sources say John is very serious about his new lady love and wants to make it official by getting engaged as early as April 2012, followed by a wedding at the end of the year.

Post his very public breakup, the 38-year-old actor has suffered an image-bashing over stories of how he left Bips in the lurch after all these years, with some even claiming he had been unfaithful.

And now, when she's clearly moved on, John wants to prove a point to the world. In recent times, he's often been quoted saying he's looking forward to settling down soon.

Sources insist he is totally smitten by his 26-year-old financial analyst girlfriend and wants to show the world he's not the…

Bipasha Basu Visits Rana in Hyderabad

Image
The actress flew down to surprise her "friend" on his birthday on December 14. Bipasha Basu flew down to Hyderabad on Tuesday evening to bring in the birthday of her "special friend" Rana Daggubati (December 14). It was a surprise visit for the birthday boy and Bips made sure no one told him about her imminent arrival.

Says a source, "Bipasha and Rana were in Goa last week shooting and hanging out with friends. Once Rana left, she decided to make a surprise visit to Hyderabad for his birthday. She left from Mumbai the evening before to bring in his birthday with him.

Bips is scared of flying, but that didn't stop her from wanting to spend some quality time with Rana.

Even though she'd bought him an expensive present, for Rana the best gift was her surprise arrival." Bipasha remained unavailable for

comment, but we hear she flew to Bengaluru from there yesterday.

Players Movie Music Launch

Image
A lot of hype was created for Players' music launch. All the lead actors of the movie were to perform stunts in front of a live audience. But it was Bipasha Basu and Abhishek Bachchan who stole the show.

On Friday evening, Bobby Deol, who plays an illusionist in the movie performed the opening act-he disappeared from two different towers. He was followed by Sikander Kher, who blew up a car. Omi Vaidya and Neil Nitin mouthed some dialogues from the film, while Sonam drove a truck and broke a wooden wall. But the most daring stunts were performed by Bipasha and Abhishek. Bips was riding pillion as she crossed a ring of fire and blew up a bus while Abhishek drove a car through a glass wall.

But, strangely when the entire cast of the movie was present, Bobby was nowhere to be seen. His co-actors and director duo Abbas-Mustan failed to give an explanation. Check out 15 more images after the jump.

Vidya Balan watches 'The Dirty Picture' in burqa

Image
With all the critical praise being showered on her, Vidya Balan wanted to witness the audience reaction in a theatre to her performance in The Dirty Picture.

The puffy reviews by critics are one thing, but what matters for an actor is how the aam janta reacts to their act.

To see that first hand, Vidya Balan decided to watch The Dirty Picture incognito at the Gaiety Galaxy theatre in Bandra.

To conceal her identity, Vidya Balan wore a burqa and took a seat in the upper stall of the theatre.

Well, everything went well until the interval point, when Vidya Balan dropped her guard for a moment and lifted the veil to speak to her father. It took just that much glimpse for an onlooker to spot her and scream “Vidya Balan”.

Now, before the order of the theatre could turn into pandemonium, Vidya Balan acted wisely and made a hasty exit.

Chalo! We hope Vidya got the reactions she was looking for!

Veena Malik - FHM Veena Malik Photo

Image
Veena Malik's controversial nude shoot with the ISI mark has trigged off a controversy on both sides of the border.

While Veena is claiming that she has been taken for a ride, the editor of the FHM magazine, Kabeer Sharma, has gone on record to state that Malik had done everything with her full consent. Mahesh Bhatt, who was recently in the news for having cast Sunny Leone in "Jism 2", has now spoken to both parties to ascertain what the confusion is all about.

"I had never spoken to Veena before and didn't know her at all. But since so much is being said about her shoot and I too have been asked to share my views on it, I decided to speak to her. She was surprised to get my call and told me that though she had told a shoot but had never been so bold. She felt she was being victimized and that people were believing that she has done something like this because of her otherwise controversial persona.

I told her three things - If you feel you are being violated, d…

Male attention is not something she is not used to. But this time, Bipasha Basu had a tough time dealing with it.

A member of the film unit told Mirror that Bipasha was exploring a few shops that deal with jackets, when she realised that she was being followed. "She had spent some time inside a shop and had stepped out only to realise that someone was watching her.

In a few minutes she realised that this person was following her wherever she went," said the unit hand. Initially, the sultry actress did not bother, but when it became clear that the man was refusing to let her out of his sight, she panicked. She tried walking faster, but he kept up with her pace.

"I like being out there, exploring, meeting people, but being closely guarded was very difficult. Imagine, I had no family no friends, I was all alone and only working. Those days I would cry. It was an emotional struggle (whoosh)," she says with a sad face.

But then, Nargis had found friends in two people from the shooting unit - her leading man Ranbir Kapoor and director Imtiaz Ali. "There were only two people in my life and I got attached to them," she says. "But now when I look back I appreciate the kind of life I led because it taught me to get to know myself and love myself," she adds.
