B-town celebrates Christmas with family, friends

http://www.mid-day.com/entertainment/2011/dec/261211-B-town-celebrates-Christmas-with-family-friends.htm

Bollywood celebrities extended their best wishes on Christmas Sunday. Some even shared their plans for the day on Twitter - some would celebrate with friends and family while others have jetted off for vacations.

Madhuri Dixit is off to the Maldives with husband Shriram Nene and children Arin and Rayaan.

"Excited! Off to the Maldives for some rest and relaxation...Hope everyone is having a good holiday season," the 44-year-old posted on Twitter.

Ajay Devgn, who is married to Kajol, is also on vacation although he did not reveal the location.

"Enjoying the Christmas air! Gonna sign off for the holidays an see u guys back in the new year! Ciao," Devgn posted.

Riteish Deshmukh joined good friend Arshad Warsi and his wife Maria Goretti for a Christmas brunch.

"Off to Maria Goretti and Arshad Warsi's house for Xmas brunch-She is the worlds best Bawarchi-No wonder Arshad is known as the heavy weight actor," Deshmukh, 33, posted.

Celina Jaitly is enjoying the festive mood in Dubai.

"Attended a beautiful Xmas mass at the Dubai church .. Was emotionally very moved. Was wonderful to see people from so many countries come together," the 30-year-old wrote.

"I Hate Luv Storys" director Punit Malhotra stayed at home on the occasion.

"Merry Christmas people. May the festival shower u with all the happiness and prosperity in the world. Happy holidays! Full on celebrations at home. Moms v excited, brought home a baby tree with some wonderful goodies," he posted.

Abhishek Bachchan, who was recently blessed with a baby girl with wife Aishwarya, offered good wishes to fans.

"Wish all of you a very merry Christmas. Spread the love, joy and happiness. God bless," he wrote.

Anupam Kher posted: "Happiness is the cheapest thing in the world when we buy it for someone else. Merry Christmas."

Priyanka Chopra tweeted: "Merry Xmas guys...may we all be blessed with peace and contentment..and the happiness to live and love..and be loved..Thank u all for loving me."

Karan Johar posted: "Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you!!! Its the season to forgive...to forget...to skip regret...to live and let...."

Music composer Vishal Dadlani posted: "Merry Christmas you all Jesus changed the world with love and compassion for all. Try it, it might still work."

Arjun Rampal wrote: "Merry Xmas, be free, be alive, be in love, be yourself, because everyone is beautiful. Love u all."

Bipasha Basu posted: "Merry Xmas all!Peace to the world!"

Akshay Kumar wrote: "Merry Christmas to all of you! May you be with the people you love and who love you. I am so grateful for everything! Good health, a roof over my head, great friends, people who love me, but most importantly an amazing family!"

Bollywood Stars New Year Plans

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/bollywood/news-interviews/Bollywood-stars-New-Year-plans/articleshow/11267236.cms

Here's a look at who's headed where to ring in the New Year
When it's time to say goodbye while welcoming a brand New Year, trust Bollywood junta to pick some of the most exotic destinations.

Actor Shah Rukh Khan will be at his home in Dubai with wife Gauri and kids - Aryan and Suhana. The Khans will be joined by their loyalists - Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne and their kids Hridaan and Hrehaan. Sources also tell us that Arjun Rampal will be a part of this group, along with wife Mehr Jessia and two daughters Mahika and Myra.

SRK's bete noire Salman Khan and his khandaan are also expected to be in Dubai for New Years. Of course there could be a change of plan if Salman feels Dubai is too crowded to house him and SRK on the same dates. Ajay Devgn, Kajol, his children - Nysa and Yug and family also flew to Dubai last night.

Sanjay Dutt, his wife Manyata and their twins Shahran and Iqra are in Bali. It is said that Sanju will fly out to India on December 30 to shoot for Big Boss and then fly back to Bali, just when the 2012 lights come on.

On Christmas Eve Saif wrapped up the shoot of Agent Vinod; then headed to the Christmas mass with Kareena, Babita Kapoor and his son Ibrahim. "After Christmas dinner, Saifeena flew to Switzerland," says a source, who adds, "Incidentally, this will be Kareena's last New Year as a single woman."

Vidya Balan has taken off for her annual vacation with family. Our source tells us, "Siddharth Roy Kapur will reportedly join her on New Year's Eve. Vidya has promised producers that she will look at new scripts after she returns."

Mr. Nokia girl Sana Khan speaks

http://www.indiaglitz.com/channels/telugu/article/75987.html

When she debuted in that forgettable movie Katthi, Sana Khan was no non-entity. She had already acted in over 70 ad films and opposite the likes of Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar in a couple of them. She savours her career as a model, but Sana Khan looks forward to making it big in films.

She was recognised for her acting talent for the first time, prominently in Nagarjuna-starrer Gaganam (Payanam in Tamil). Since then, she has acted in Aayiram Vilakku and Saandhupottu in Tamil. Kool - Sakka Hot Maga in Kannada was her first major South Indian film. Cast opposite Ganesh, the film fetched her instant fame in Sandalwood.

The actress now awaits her first break in Manchu Manoj's Mr. Nokia. The model-turned-screen diva admires the qualities of humility in others. For example, in her Katthi co-star Kalyan Ram, she liked his modest attitude, despite hailing from a big family (the Nandamuris). She likes goodness in other personalities and raises toast for hard-working people.

Coming to her personal favourites, Sana likes Madhuri Dixit, Kajol and Rani Mukherjee, the "all-rounders."

Adieu To The Aces

http://www.thehindu.com/life-and-style/metroplus/article2754564.ece

September 13: Gautam Rajadhyaksha

Ace lensman Gautam Rajadhyaksha was only 60 and suffering from no ailment when he passed away at his Mumbai home. Celebrity portraits were his forte and not a single leading film industry icon of our times had escaped Gautam's lens. His was a glamorous life, but his simple manner and soft-spoken nature never failed to surprise a first-time observer. He was a writer as well and had scripted a few films, including Kajol's debut “Bekhudi” and Madhuri's “Anjaam”. The man reportedly died with the camera in his hands, just as he had wanted to.

It's Family Holiday Time

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/channels/showbiz/bollywood/it%E2%80%99s-family-holiday-time-093

Bollywood seems to have found a new way to establish their camps. First it was Shah Rukh Khan and Arjun Rampal who went off to Dubai for a holiday, and now it is his arch rival Ajay Devgn, who has invited Sanjay Dutt and Manyata to join him and Kajol in Bali for New Year’s. While Ajay and Sanjay have always maintained cordial relations with each other, it was only after Rascals that they found a confidante in each other.

Our source says, “They are buddies; their friendship is not based on need or greed. They are genuinely fond of each other and it was Ajay’s idea to spend the New Year together in Bali.” Looks like the debacle of Rascals seem to have had no negative impact on their friendship. And Sanjay seems grateful to Ajay for that. “Ajay is a very dear friend who has always been there for me.”

Well, good for you, Sanjay!

Doggy Bag Trouble For Kajol's Sis Tanisha And Mom Tanuja

http://www.bollywoodlife.com/news-gossip/doggy-bag-lands-kajol-sis-tanisha-and-mom-tanuja-in-trouble/

A fracas at a restaurant has left the two Mukherjee women red-faced

We hear that Kajol’s sister Tanisha and mother Tanuja are upset over an incident that occurred in a suburban restaurant in Mumbai a couple of days ago. Apparently the two women had dinner at a tony Chinese restaurant and were left with extra food. However, they were not permitted to take it back with them, as the restaurant’s global policy has a strict rule against doggy bags – the chef firmly believes that his creations have to be eaten at a specific temperature and degree of doneness, so will not allow them to be taken out of the eatery under any circumstances. This did not go down well with the two women. And there was a bit of a hoo-ha that ensued. At this point, versions of what happened next differ. Tanuja claims she was shocked that the establishment was planning to throw away the extra food, while she wanted to give it to the needy – the best-fed needy we have heard of! When she conveyed this to the manager, he brought in bouncers and allegedly said that she should direct them to the people she wants to give the food too and they would do it, but she wouldn’t be given doggy bags. However, the restaurant has a different version. The head honcho claims that it was the veteran actor who got extremely drunk and started throwing the food around, breaking trophies and generally creating a nuisance. He also claimed the restaurant doesn’t employ bouncers and they have the entire incident recorded on CCTV cameras. We don’t know which version is true, but we do know one thing: If Kajol, the third Mukherjee woman, now turned Devgn, had been on the scene, this would not have happened. She’s one actor who has a sane head on her shoulders. Too bad she missed some family time and the fracas.

Should Rajesh Khanna's Anand Be Remade?

http://ibnlive.in.com/news/should-rajesh-khannas-anand-be-remade/216131-8-66.html

New Delhi: 'Anand', one of Rajesh Khanna's most memorable performances, needs a remake, feel Twitter users as the veteran Bollywood actor and the reigning king of the 70s celebrates his 69th birthday on Thursday.

There is a series of remakes lined up in 2012 including that of 'Agneepath', starring actors Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chouhan and Sanjay Dutt as Kancha Cheena. 'Anand' tells the story of a reticent and introverted doctor treating a terminally ill patient.

Director Hrishikesh Mukherjee left the narrative of the poignant story to protagonist Amitabh Bachchan, then a rising star. Bachchan as the jaded Dr Bhaskar Banerjee develops a close bond with his patient Rajesh Khanna playing Anand Sehgal, the main lead who suffers from lymphosarcoma of the intestine.
Should Rajesh Khanna

The response to an IBNLive question - which Rajesh Khanna classic should find its way back in present day Bollywood as a remake - was in favour of Anand. Interesting options were offered for the role of the lead protagonists.

Aradhana, Bawarchi and Kati Patang were the obvious choices for some.

"Anand remake? Risky but prefer to go with Aamir Khand as Anand and Abhisek Bachhan as Dr.Banerjee," tweeted user Jaal Mohon using the handle @mtanmay. His choice was seconded by @vigneshwar, Rimjhim Ray (@GlobeSlother) who would prefer to see the character of Anand played by Ranbir Kapoor and 'Babumosai' by Ajay Devgn.

But Anand is not the only film the Twitteratti wants remade. At a time when three major classics of Bachchan are getting a makeover, they feel it is only fair that Khanna gets his due.

Actor Viveck Vaswani who uses the Twitter handle @VIVECKVASWANI pitched in sportingly, suggesting a modern day Amar Prem starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead roles. Vaswani's second choice was another Khanna hit 'Kati Patang' with Khan and Aishwarya Rai.

Given a choice, Twitter user Aditi Sen (@senaditi) would remake 'Mehbooba' with Sanjay Dutt in the lead role and IIM graduate @jurnoleast revive the Red Rose with Emraan Hashmi. Mehbooba is a 1976 Shakti Samanta film dealing with afterlife and rebirth. Beside Khanna, it starred Hema Malini and Prem Chopra. The thriller Red Rose had Khanna and Poonam Dhillon in the lead roles.

Author Diptakirti Chaudhuri (@diptakirti) who blogs from Calcutta Chromosome and communication professional Saurabh Rathore (@SauReal) both wanted an Aradhana remake with the former suggesting Ranbir Kapoor and Vidya Balan for the lead roles.

If Namak Haram is remade, @TheBitchnessman wants Amir Khan to play the role of Khanna, Kareena Kapoor as Rekha and Saif Ali Khan as Bachchan.

@Gablu said: "I will remake Aap Ki Kasam with Sharukh Khan (in Place of Rajesh Khanna), Kajol & Ajay Devgan (in place of Sanjeev Kumar)."

Three of Bachchan's cult films – Don, Agneepath and Satte pe Satta have been chosen for remakes. Khanna, a towering star in the 70s, have given inspired performances in many of the films mentioned by the Twiteratti. A revamped Aradhana or Amar Prem may just be the films Bollywood is missing.

Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan return from Dubai after welcoming 2012

http://truthdive.com/2012/01/05/salman-khan-and-shahrukh-khan-return-from-dubai-after-welcoming-2012.html

Mumbai, Jan 5 (TruthDive): Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan returned to Mumbai in the morning hours of Wednesday, January 4.

Salman was accompanied by sister Arpita Khan. Also spotted at the airport were his brothers Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan.

Salman had left Mumbai for Dubai on Wednesday, January 28, a day after his 46th birthday, which he celebrated at his Panvel farmhouse partying with friends and family.

In Dubai, Salman booked a place for Dh75, 000 a week for his stay at an island with his entire family. After having a week-long vacation in Dubai, welcoming New Year in a grand gala meet, Salman returned to India. He was wearing a black long-sleeve button down shirt, paired with faded blue frayed jeans and black dress shoes.

Shahrukh Khan too returned from Dubai with his wife Gauri Khan and his kids Suhana and Aryan on January 4. His entire family with wife Gauri, daughter Suhana and son Aryan with friends Arjun Rampal and Hrithik Roshan, celebrated New Year in Dubai.

Shah Rukh took a well derserved break after working round the clock for both ‘Ra.One’ and ‘Don 2′. He had also tweeted: “Last day of holiday with kids. Rides in desert. shopped lil girl thingies. fed them. trivial pursuit & generally lots of hugs. happy day & nite.”

But playing soccer with his daughter Suhana in the beach has cost him an injury. SRK hurt his ribs during the match. SRK tweeted again, “Have hurt ribs. Holiday soccer career nipped in the bud…bah!! Now to indulge in reading & videogames. Hurts only when I laugh or breathe.”

Other Bollywood celebrities spotted in Dubai included Ajay Devgn and Kajol with children and Madhavan with family.

“What a lovely time of the year in Dubai. Weather is great and most of my friends and family are here – Wish you all a fantastic last day in 2011,” Madhavan tweeted yesterday.

Is 'Heroine' Why Kareena Kapoor's Wedding Is Being Delayed?

http://www.bollywoodlife.com/news-gossip/is-heroine-why-kareena-kapoors-wedding-is-being-delayed/

Speculation about the much-awaited Kareena Kapoor-Saif Ali Khan wedding has been on for a long time now. Kareena too has been keen on walking down the aisle for a while, or so she has said. Early 2012, was what the actor had been looking at. Yet, the wedding has been constantly getting delayed. While earlier Saif’s ambitious production Agent Vinod was being touted as the reason for the postponement, now yet another film project has come in the way of the couple’s marital bliss…well, the legality of it, at least. Buzz is that the mid-year release of Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine is what is causing all the problems. Kareena has had a terrific last two years at the BO, with big hits like 3 Idiots, Golmaal Returns, Ra.One and Bodyguard to her credit. And the trade has been quite gung-ho about how this will work in favour of Heroine when it hits the screen. But the trade pundits are skeptical about Kareena suddenly turning into a married lady and they believe that she may not continue to be a crowd puller at the BO after that. Chances are that Heroine might end up a damp squib if it releases post her marriage. The paranoia seems to have affected Bebo too, as she seems to have pushed her wedding date even further for the sake of the film. Well Kareena, we don’t expect this, at least not from you, especially considering the fact that your to-be mother-in-law Sharmila Tagore did some of her most memorable roles and films after she was married and a mother of two! Also, we wonder why the trade is still paranoid about married heroines. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kajol have proved repeatedly that marriage need not affect the BO standing of a Bollywood heroine! Guess, B-town has a lot more growing up to do. What do you think?

Shah Rukh Khan film back in cinemas after two years

http://www.digitalspy.com/bollywood/news/a358712/shah-rukh-khan-film-back-in-cinemas-after-two-years.html

Shah Rukh Khan's 2010 release My Name is Khan has been given a theatrical release in Hong Kong.

The Karan Johar-directed project had its original worldwide box office release almost two years ago.

The film stars Bollywood icon Khan as an autistic man who travels across America to win back his wife Mandira (Kajol) in the aftermath of 9/11.

The movie also recently opened in South Korea in eight cities across 200 cinemas.

Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots saw a revival last month when it opened in the Chinese market. The 2009 production has been screening in the territory with 900 prints.

My Name Is Khan at one point held the UK record as the biggest Bollywood film of all time.

Great news, I think Very Happy

Actresses are too thin to be healthy: Raveena Tandon

http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2012\01\07\story_7-1-2012_pg9_11

Actresses are too thin to be healthy: Raveena Tandon

Raveena Tandon, who started her career with ‘Patthar Ke Phool’, says the current lot of actresses are under a lot of pressure to look slim and in the process, are compromising on their health as a result unable to withstand the rigors of the job. “After coming to this industry, we actresses face so much pressure to look thin all the time. We are working at erratic hours, we also go through such strict diet plans, it is important to have a strong base,” she said.

“These days we get to hear news of actresses fainting due to dieting or working non-stop for 24 hours or for 36 hours. But touchwood, I have never fainted in my life till now,” the 37-year-old actress added at an event to announce her as the brand ambassador of Seven Seas Cod Liver Oil.

Raveena feels actresses of her generation were a lot healthier as compared to the current crop.

“I did `Patthar Ke Phool` when I was 16 and from that day onwards I have been shooting. That time people were not conscious about their looks to such an extent. We were very healthy back then. Me, Kajol, Manisha (Koirala) – when we had come, we were strong, we looked like we belonged to healthy families,” said the actress last seen in ‘Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap’.

Raveena had taken a sabbatical after her marriage to Anil Thadani in 2004 and made a comeback last year with ‘Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap’. Now she has signed a couple of projects and is currently shooting for ‘Gin Liya Aasmaan’.

She will also be seen in ‘E-dil Sambhal Zara’ and ‘Shovna Seven Nights’. daily times monitor

B'wood Loves 3D, But Do We?

http://www.mumbaimirror.com/article/30/20120109201201090209146876f2ff693/B%E2%80%99wood-loves-3D-but-do-we.html

After Don 2 in 3D crashes at the plexes, theatre owners and filmmakers tell us why the format is failing to lure the masses

Hollywood has always inspired Indian cinema with their technical forwardness — be it animation or the more recent phenomena of the 3D films. And often, filmmakers have not really concerned themselves with the Indian cinegoers' choice in the matter. And thus, animation films like Jumbo, Roadside Romeo and Toonpur Ka Superrhero have failed despite the presence of A-list stars like Akshay Kumar, Saif-Kareena and Ajay Devgn-Kajol respectively.

3D films have met with a similar reaction from the audience. While Hollywood films like Avatar and Tintin have drawn multiplex audiences, Indian attempts to master the very technical art have fallen flat. The most recent example being that of Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 2.

The film, Don 2 has managed to rake in the moolah at the box office. But its three-dimensional version has fizzled out. The last minute conversion of the film from 2D to 3D took a lot of time and effort. But the sleepless nights couldn't somehow convert into houseful theatres. In fact, 3D prints of Don 2 were removed from almost all theatres across the country.

A representative from a leading multiplex said on the condition of anonymity, "You can't do 3D just for the sake of making a 3D film. In the second week of Don 2, we reduced the 3D shows and in the third week, we removed it altogether. You can't add 3D just for the shock value. We have seen films like Tintin, which was brilliant in 3D. As far as Bollywood is concerned, Haunted that was shot in 3D brought in the necessary footfalls."

Anand Vishal, head of operations of Fun Republic said, "In all our theatres, we had more audience for 2D version of Don 2 than 3D. That is when we decided to discontinue it."

A source close to BIG Cinemas added, "We removed some prints of the 3D version since we had to accommodate another film. In any case, the film was in its third week. Once cannot expect to get the same revenue as the first week."

Utpal Acharya, the head of distribution and acquisition for Reliance, the makers of Don 2, said, "In the first week we had 3105 prints. This included 400 odd pirnts in 3D. The 3D prints were retained in the second week. This week the prints are reduced."

When inquired about the audience feedback on the 3D version, he said, "People will always have issues. It happens with Hollywood films as well. The theaters who have only one 3D screen have removed the prints."

Filmmakers are however, undaunted by the audience reaction to 3D. Vikram Bhatt, who shot Haunted in 3D and is in the final legs of shooting his second 3D venture Dangerous Ishq, said, "It is bound to fail. Conversion of 2D into 3D takes a long time if it is done well. When it's done in a hurry the result is bad. I have not seen RA.One or Don 2 to comment on their 3D merit, but I know that I am the only one in India who is shooting films in 3D. The audience will get smart soon enough to realise the difference between converted 3D and real 3D."

Incidentally, Shirish Kunder who has just completed shooting for his film Joker with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha is in the process of converting his 2D film to 3D.

When contacted, Kunder said "The most important thing is that Joker is not an after thought 3D film. We had shot the film with wide angles. There will be depth and so we will get all the right effects for 3D. Also, it is very important about who is doing it in terms of technique. Even Chronicles Of Narnia was a conversion and may be the others films you talking about are not up to the mark."

A Song And Dance About Everything Rhythm Divine

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/A-song-and-dance-about-everything-rhythm-divine/articleshow/11457401.cms

Bella Jaisinghani, TNN | Jan 12, 2012, 07.51AM IST
The chorus of sweet voices rising from classrooms of Sangit Mahabharati in Juhu breeds more than musical technique. A lineup of small kids greet their guru once they finish their lesson and head out into the world of academia, more sensitised to art and culture than their peers.

Mumbai has an abundance of options for children in theatre, music and dance. Stalwarts like Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia, Nayan Ghosh and Suresh Wadkar run gurukuls and music schools, encouraging children as little as six and seven to seek their calling in the classical arts.

Actor Kajol, who has two young children , advocates the gainful use of leisure time for the young generation. She recalls her own childhood with fond nostalgia. "I remember how much I used to play with my cousins," she says. "Now we live in very competitive times and it reflects in what children do in their leisure. They hardly consider outdoor games or the arts, they merely sit in front of the TV or computer." Kajol believes parents need to organize their kids' lives a little more 'in balance' . "I make sure my daughter Nysa gets lots of physical and mental exercise. Last summer I put her into ballet class, now she has taken up gymnastics. Most importantly , she loves to read, which in itself teaches her so much."

A new generation of parents is seeking out creative leisure options for their young. The National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) has a full calendar of events for children under various heads including music, dance and drama. "Our annual Summer Fiesta is a month-long festival where we host 30 events related to children's films, workshops and plays," says Khushroo N Suntook , chairman of the NCPA. Last May, the festival drafted Naseeruddin Shah, Amole Gupte and Divya Dutta to interact with the participants. It also initiates children between eight and 12 into Indian classical music under its programme MusiKi.

"In western classical music, we have established the Suzuki Project, introducing players as young as four to the basics of string technique. It provides a solid foundation for their future musical development. We currently have 300 children from nine participating schools, being trained by our international teachers under this project," he says. Every two years, the NCPA also organises a concert featuring these kids at the Tata Theatre, providing a much-needed showcase for talent.

The suburbs have the advantage of the Prithvi Summertime Festival that drew participants by the score thanks to the untiring efforts of Sanjna Kapoor. Raell Padamsee's workshops are extremely popular as well. "Other groups and individuals like Akavarious and Jehan Maneckshaw, and young director Shivani Sawant are doing a lot of theatre for children," says theatreperson Shaili Sathyu who started a troupe named Gillo two years ago for this target audience. She says, "At Gillo we strongly focus on content that is Indian and try to produce age-specific work."

In Matunga, the Sri Shanmukhananda Fine Arts and Sangeetha Sabha is a favourite retreat for students. Vice-president Santhosh Rajan says, "We have a theatre group for children which has staged four short plays in English and Tamil. We have revived the classical arts in various ways, by teaching them to dance and reciting old folk songs that our grandparents taught us. They look forward to this activity so much that they can barely wait for school to end."

Emraan Hashmi to shun all award functions

http://www.hindustantimes.com/Entertainment/Bollywood/Emraan-Hashmi-to-shun-all-award-functions/Article1-795939.aspx

In 2011, he delivered back-to-back hits like Murder 2 and The Dirty Picture. But despite his successes, actor Emraan Hashmi has decided that he won’t participate in any of Bollywood’s award functions. As for organisers who have approached him with invites to various events, he has apparently put forth a condition — ‘arrange for a pay cheque or I will be unable to attend’.

Emraan Hashmi“For me, money is more tangible than accolades,” says the actor, adding, “So, if someone is giving me money to perform, I will happily do it. It’s as clear that.”

Though his statement sounds very politically incorrect, Emraan makes it a point to defend his reasoning. He says, “Firstly, I strongly disagree with the nomination process at most award ceremonies. And I have felt that since the start of my career. Some nominations are highly undeserving.”

However, the actor, who is better known for his on-screen Casanova aka 'serial kisser' image in Bollywood, than for impressing the critics with his acting chops, insists he doesn’t expect to see his own name on the roster. “It’s not that they should include me. I would rather be declared the people’s champion than the darling of award ceremonies.

But I have a strong difference of opinion on the merit and credibility of the nomination process. And a lot of people agree with me,” says the actor, who confesses that he can’t bring himself to sit through an award ceremony again. “I tried doing it once, but then I was like, ‘that’s it. I can’t do it anymore.’”

Emraan is currently shooting for Mahesh Bhatt’s Jannat 2, which is a sequel to the hit 2008 original film.

They’re no-shows too
Aamir Khan stopped attending award ceremonies after he didn’t receive the Best Actor award for his performance in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, losing out to Anil Kapoor in Beta.

Naseeruddin Shah, who featured in the 2011 chartbuster ‘Ooh la la…’ and is being pitched as the favourite for the Best Supporting Actor award for his performance as Suryakant in The Dirty Picture, says he will “not be in town” when ever there is an award function coming up. The National Award-winning actor has shied away from these galas even when he’s been promised a popular award.

Salman Khan performs at an award ceremony
Nana Patekar accepted the Best Actor award for his performance in Krantiveer, but in subsequent years, was disillusioned by the nominees and winners, which resulted in him staying away.

Ajay Devgn, the limelight-shy actor, was recently seen performing at the Big Entertainment Awards. But Ajay has not even accepted the National Awards personally. His wife Kajol accepted the Best Actor award on his behalf for The Legend Of Bhagat Singh (2002).

Salman Khan would always say that he was ready to perform at any award function, if the organisers paid his price, the money going to his charity, Being Human. Even for Dabangg, it was brother Arbaaz, who accepted the Best Actor awards on his behalf.

Ajay Devgn Gave Away Chikni Chameli To Karan Johar

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/bollywood/news-interviews/Ajay-Devgn-gave-away-Chikni-Chameli-to-Karan-Johar/articleshow/11475030.cms

While most people think Ajay Devgn is not particularly fond of his wife Kajol's gang of friends (Karan Johar included), that's far from the truth. The star recently gave away the rights of Chikni Chameli when he heard KJo wanted it for Agneepath.

Says a source close to Devgn, "Director Rohit Shetty and he had signed on the music directors of the original Marathi song as they wanted an item song for Bol Bachchan. The song also featured AD and Abhishek Bachchan in it. Rohit was planning to approach Katrina Kaif or Kareena Kapoor for the same. This would be the first time that a Rohit Shetty film would have an item song. But everything changed when Karan approached Ajay-Atul to do Chikni Chameli for them in Agneepath."

The music duo also requested Devgn for permission to do the song with Karan instead as the film was releasing before Bol Bachchan and doing a film with KJo would mean a lot to them. "Ajay was moved by their request and immediately told them they could go ahead. Now Rohit and Ajay have decided to scrap the song from the film altogether. It was a gesture few know about, including Karan himself."
