One of the first big releases from Bollywood in the upcoming summer season is Shootout at Wadala, which first caught my attention because of John Abraham’s gritty turn as a Hindu gangster. Now there are 2 item songs from this film which are dominating radio airwaves. The first one stars Priyanka Chopra as Babli Badmaash.
Now if I hadn’t seen the videos, I would have guessed that Priyanka’s song would be the better one but there’s something that Sunny Leone has that gives her the edge. Perhaps being new on the item song scene makes her win this round? So tell us who’s item song you prefer.
If you’re wondering why there’s been a dearth of movie reviews on the blog, I’m going to go ahead and blame Bollywood. There haven’t been any big movies released recently and this isn’t surprising considering most movies are lined up for the post-IPL season.
The good thing is the trailers for the summer biggies are slowly coming out and one of the movies I’m super excited for is Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
Thank god its Thursday A.K.A. TGIT – that means the weekend is just around the corner! And we bring you a little spice to kickstart that weekend!
If there is a common theme in the TGIT series, it’s hunky shirtless men. However this week, it’s a fully clothed man who makes the cut – John Abraham on the March 2013 cover of GQ India.
There’s no denying that John Abraham has a fine body under those layers – just watch Desi Boyz or Race 2 for that proof. But John absolutely kills it with his outfit on the cover of GQ. We’d love to see the men of Dubai inspired by the checkered suit paired with a striped tie and polka dot pocket square. Who said formal wear has to be dull?
And if you need an extra dose of John Abraham, check out the behind the scenes clip from the GQ shoot.
As much of a Bollywood fanatic I may be, I’ll be the first to admit we don’t do serious movies well. There are very few thrillers or realistic dramas that have done well in the past. However, every so often a director takes a risk and a gem is released. One such gem was the 2008 thriller drama, A Wednesday. Now director Neeraj Pandey returns with his second film, Special 26, starring Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpayee and Jimmy Shergill in pivotal roles.
Special 26 is inspired by the true story of a group of conmen robbing corrupt businessman and politicians by posing as CBI inspectors and income tax officers. They manage to get away with each crime since no one wants to confess to hoarding large sums of black money.
Akshay Kumar stars as Ajay Singh, the leader of this group of 4 conmen from cities across India, including Anupam Kher as P.K. Sharma. They successful rob a corrupt minister in Delhi by convincing police officer Ranveer Singh (Jimmy Shergill) to assist during the raid. After being made for a fool, Ranveer Singh joins forces with the real CBI officer Wassim Khan (Manoj Bajpayee) to catch these conmen. Continue reading →
Another major Bollywood Awards Night took place this past week – the Stardust Awards 2013. Again we were let down by the lack of major stars. What’s going on with Bollywood this year? I can normally pick out the best and worst dressed off of any red carpet but this one was so “blah.” Let’s see if you agree.
Starting out with the neutrals. Sophie Chaudhray looks very pageanty while Alia Bhatt opted for a simple gown. Considering she’s only 19, I wish she’d take some fashion risks and go for something bright and short. Rageshwari won this round with her body-fitting halter gown – wish I could see a photo of the back detail.

Not many sarees spotted at this event but of course Vidya Balan came in her trademark Sabyasachi – not her best but not bad at all. Mini Mathur looks very fresh, thanks to the gorgeous cobalt blue saree and top-notch makeup. Definitely a pleasant surprise. Continue reading →
