Uday Chopra signs Nicole Kidman

YRF Entertainment CEO Uday Chopra has announced he is joining forces with Pierre-Ange Le Pogam of Stone Angels to produce and finance the upcoming Nicole Kidman vehicle, “Grace of Monaco”.

The film, to be directed by Olivier Dahan (“La Vie En Rose”), starts production this fall in South of France. YRF Entertainment’s development head, Jonathan Reiman, will serve as executive producer, along with the film’s writer, Arash Amel. Inferno is currently selling foreign rights to the film at the Cannes Film Festival.

The movie tells the story of efforts by the late Princess Grace of Monaco (the former Grace Kelly, played by Nicole Kidman) to make peace between her adopted country and France. Grace, just 33 years old and having just given up an acting career to become Monaco’s First Lady, maneuvered through a political minefield to resolve the situation, as detailed in the film.

The project is the latest move by YRF Entertainment, a Beverly Hills-based production and financing company that is a subsidiary of Indian studio Yash Raj Films, to develop, finance, and produce English language films for the U.S. and global market. Both Uday Chopra and Pierre-Ange Le Pogam are particularly pleased to be teaming up to bring “Grace of Monaco” to the big-screen.

Chopra says, "'Grace of Monaco' is the kind of movie that has a perfect blend of talent and sensibility that YRF Entertainment is proud to be a part of. We look forward to a great partnership with Olivier and Pierre-Ange."

Le Pogam says, “When I first read the script written by Arash Amel, I thought it was a great story to tell, with a lot of artistic, historical and emotional potential. This is why I invited Olivier Dahan to become the director because he has this artistic vision. When Olivier and I met with Nicole Kidman for the first time, we felt immediately she was the right artist to portray Princess Grace. When I then met with Uday, I had the same feeling after our conversation. He was obviously the right partner because of his beautiful vision of the movie. We are very proud and enthusiastic to be sharing the experience of working together with YRF.”

YRF Entertainment is currently also overseeing post-production on Peter Glanz’s upcoming comedic feature, “The Longest Week”, starring Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde, and has a slate of films in development.

Ever since the first 'A'-certified trailer of the film became an online rage, there has been no looking back for the huge fan following that the film has garnered. Taking the entertainment quotient to a new level, in the film Tusshar will be seen spoofing John Abraham in the Shut Up & Bounce track from Dostana

A la Abraham, Tusshar will be seen emerging from the sea in tight trunks, mischievously flashing his derriere. (see picture attached).

Even though the scene is a spoof, Tusshar was keen to look his best in it, and went on a high protein diet and eliminated sugar for almost two months to buff up.

His co-star Neha Sharma and onlookers on the beach in Goa (where the scene was shot) whistled as he shot for the scene. 

Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum stars Riteish Deshmukh, Tusshar, Neha Sharma, Sarah-Jane Dias, Anupam Kher, Chunky Pandey & Kavin Dave. It releases worldwide on August 2.

In the dark world of intelligence and espionage… there are shadows without faces… and faces without names…

Governments fight shadow battles through these soldiers of the unknown… Battles have no rules… No limits.

Nobody on the outside knows what goes on in these secret organizations… All information is guarded in the name of National security…But some stories escape the fiercely guarded classified files… stories that become legends.

This is a film about one such story, a story that is spoken about only in hushed whispers… a story that shook the very foundation of this dark world… But like all reports that come out of this uncertain world… nobody will ever confirm those events… It may or may not have happened…

This story is about an agent named TIGER… It may now be told.

Directed by Kabir Khan and Produced by Aditya Chopra, Yash Raj Films’ romantic-thriller “EK THA TIGER”, starring Salman Khan & Katrina Kaif, is slated for an EID 2012 release.

Catch Salman Khan in the teaser trailer of “EK THA TIGER” in theatres with “ISHAQZAADE” releasing today.

Katrina Kaif and Meera blacked out by moral police in Pakistan!

Banners and billboards featuring various advertisements, including ones of Indian actress Katrina Kaif and Pakistani superstar Meera, have reportedly been blacked out by Pakistani ‘moral police’ in Karachi.

According to a report in The Express Tribune, hoardings of a Lux advertisement featuring Meera and a Veet advertisement with Katrina Kaif have been replaced by black banners which scream “Sell clothes, not your honour.”

The protest campaign has been attributed to unheard of groups such as the Women Education Society and the Women Professional Forum, adds the report. Their main objection appears to be over ‘immorality’, since the advertisements feature female models in sleeveless or backless clothes with risqué necklines.

Reacting to this, Meera’s Bollywood publicist Dale Bhagwagar who has earlier, also handled the PR for Katrina's debut film Boom said, “Moral policing the roads in the age of the internet is like asking your toddler not to speak to the neighboring toddler because she has a doll resembling a sex toy. It just doesn't work.”

“In any case, showing off a little skin with a sleeveless blouse or a backless dress, couldn’t be reason enough to black out posters and hoardings,” added the PR specialist, suggesting that the protesters “grow up.”

Madhuri revisits Meena Kumari’s Pakeezah with Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 5

If dance is about grace then Madhuri Dixit is the epitome of grace. We have seen so many eras go by and many actresses have left us with a lasting impression with their addas, but one from the few have stood out and is ever green - Madhuri Dixit. From her days of dhak dhak in Beta to dola re dola in Devdas, Madhuri has always captivated us with her million dollar smile and poise. And now that she is back in India for good, it is great news for all Madhuri fans as this timeless beauty is all set to celebrate the spirit of dancing with Jhalak Dikhla Ja 5 on COLORS.

 In the first look promos for Jhalak Dikhala Jaa 5, Madhuri will be seen giving a tribute to the divas of yesteryears starting with the 60’s superstar Meena Kumari. Having popularized the dance form of Mujra, Meena Kumari is considered as one of the most prominent actresses and best dancers of her era. The song Thade Rahiyo from Pakeezah is one number which mesmerized us and now, it is with this very song, that Madhuri pays homage to Meena Kumari. The promo will see Madhuri in a shimmering pink anarkali outfit performing to the song in true Meena Kumari style. Madhuri's smile lit up a thousand faces around her and she floored everyone on the sets while shooting the promo with her poise, her mastery over dance and her cheerful and loving presence.  And when Madhuri dances, it's not just her feet… her expressive eyes, the twitch of an eyebrow, the serene smile and the swish of her all combines to truly depict what dancing from the heart really encompasses! After all, that was exactly the message she was trying to convey through the promos.

The sets replicate the Pakeezah look completely - from the fountains to the pond with floating candles, lights etc. Her expressions and style on Thade Rahiyo O Baanke Yaar is definitely going to leave everyone wanting to see more! There is no doubt that Madhuri is one actress who can do a disco and a mujra with the same finesse and élan.

What is an Indian wedding without its various functions? You will watch one this week on your television set for Sony Entertainment Television’s popular show ‘Kuch Toh Log Kahenge’. The leading couple of the show Dr. Ashutosh (Sharad Kelkar) and Dr. Nidhi (Kritika Kamra) are all set to tie the knot. Since the show is set in Lucknow, the best choice for it would be Malini Awasthi, the face of folk music in India.

Malini was invited to sing for Dr. Nidhi’s haldi ceremony and she not only lent her voice to two folk songs but even composed one of them. Dr. Nidhi, her family and friends danced alongside with great gusto.

Commenting on the same, Malini Awasthi said, “It was a great pleasure shooting for Kuch Toh Log Kahenge. I felt back at home in Lucknow, where no wedding is complete without the naach-gaana. The entire haldi function had the authentic essence of Awadh and that is brought to life with the ambience created. The cast and crew of the show were also very nice to work with.”
