Indian actress Aishwarya Rai waves as she arrives for the screening of the film "Asphalte" (Macadam Stories) at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, southeastern France, on May 17, 2015.   AFP PHOTO / BERTRAND LANGLOIS        (Photo credit should read BERTRAND LANGLOIS/AFP/Getty Images)Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Sonam Kapoor had their red-carpet moment at the Cannes 2015. They all wore couture gowns and pouted for the paparazzi. Katrina Kaif was the first one from Team L’Oreal at the French Riviera. She wore a nude Oscar de la Renta gown and a red Elie Saab mermaid gown but who the hell suggested that reddish tinge on her hair??? It was such a disaster. And that ‘selfie’ moment with Jullianne Moore – all you see is Kat’s long nose.

They beat Sunny Deol’s ’21/2 Kilo ke Haath’. Sonam Kapoor’s pictures were later hurriedly photoshopped by L’Oreal to take-off inches from those butter-chicken fed arms but by then it was too late.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dd some valuable work at Cannes. She joined in Salma Hayek and Parker Posey leading a call for greater gender equality in film at Cannes on Saturday. Speaking at the forum organised by trade magazine Variety and UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, the actors spoke of their own experiences of institutional sexism and called on studios, audiences and journalists to alter the discourse.

Upen Patel Blames The ‘Khan(Daan)’ For His Exit From Bigg Boss 8

upen-patel-biggboss8The NRI Gujju guy – Upen Patel is finally out of Bigg Boss Season 8.The wooden-faced actor survived 15 weeks and that itself is surprising. But Upen Patel believes his exit from Bigg Boss 8 was ‘engineered’ by none other than the host of the show – Salman Khan.

Amrita Arora and Upen Patel shown to userkatrinakaifandupenpatelinanoldphotoshoot-smallDuring his first lackluster stint in Bollywood, Upen dated Amrita Arora for a while. Now since Amrita Arora Ladak is related to the ‘Khan(daan)’ by virtue of her sister, Malaika Arora – Salman’s bhabi, Patel is ensuing that Amrita got him evicted for their failed relationship. In fact Katrina Kaif and Salman relationship too came in way of Upen because long time back Upen and Katrina worked in a Tamil movie and some unsubstantiated gossip linked Upen with Katrina Kaif. Upen is dumb and doesn’t know that Katrina only falls in love with ‘winners’ and not ‘losers’.

And Malaika Arora Khan is not really very close with Salman Khan. In fact if B-Town buzz is to be believed then there’s a strong under-current between Sallu and Malaika. Malaika’s sister, Amrita Arora influencing Sallu is far-fetched. In fact Amrita and Shakeel Ladak’s best friends are Kareena and Saif. Anyway let Upen Patel enjoy his bliss that he had been evicted under conspiracy and not the fact that he was the biggest bore in Bigg Boss’ House!



Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt Are Dating

Ranbir Kapoor_Alia BhattRanbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif love-story is over for sure. I believe the breaking point was over the word ‘commitment’, which Ranbir shies away from. Now the lady who occupies all the space in Ranbir Kapoor’s heart is the dainty Alia Bhatt. I am sure many will laugh this off but that never had deterred me from posting facts. And in no way this news is based on the fact that Ranbir is actively promoting Alia-Randeep starrer – Highway.

ranbi-alia-highwayNor is the news of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt based on their mutual admiration for each other, which both have voiced openly. My source is more reliable than so called ‘tabloid gossips’.

Arjun_MalaikaArjun-Kapoor-Alia-BhattYou may ask what happened to Arjun Kapoor. He was linked with Alia Bhatt. Folks Arjun Kapoor is loyal to madam Munni . I had written about it way back in April 2011 and the saga is still on, though very discreetly. Link to the earlier post is here:

Sexier in Bikini – Katrina or Nargis?

nargis-bikini-uday-maldivesNow that we have images of Uday Chopra with the bikini-clad Nargis Fakhri holidaying in Maldives, it is but natural that most of us will debate who looked sexier in bikini – Nargis Fakhri or Katrina Kaif?

katrina-bikini-ranbir-ibizaRanbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif were snapped by paparazzi while they were holidaying in Ibiza.

My vote goes to Nargis Fakhri. Her bikini is sexier than two-toned one donned by Katrina and more so because Nargis looks perfectly curvy in these images.
