Celebrity Gossip Relationship Woes

No Comments

The world of celebrity gossip will collapse like a deflated balloon if you take out stories that have something to do with illicit relationships! The celeb gossip lover’s dream news is the story of a favorite actor getting caught in the act. The Hollywood rumors doing the rounds always find takers among the lovers of entertainment news items. And they receive added impetus when there is some relationship issue involved the news story. Lovers of gossip would give away their right arms to know who is dating whom in the tinsel town!

So what triggers the love of celebrity gossip lovers for relationship stories? The prime reason could be the love for personal details that we can get about favorite celebrities. Celeb gossip reports which feature the love affair or more often than not, lust affair of the celebs of glamour land. Hollywood rumors are fed on the personal lives of the celebrities and famous personalities. Web portals and websites, which deal with entertainment news, give priority to stories having a relationship angle. This is especially true of stories which are immoral and illegitimate. A wife’s terminal illness is not a big story on these pages, a mistress’s common cold is.

Relationships are sometimes dictated by celebrity gossips! Yes, that is sometimes the case when the celebrities keep an eye on the entertainment news sections themselves. There are recorded instances of celebrities breaking up their existing relationship when they found their partner’s picture in the celeb gossip columns. Many a cheating partner was brought to the book in the pages of the Hollywood rumors. The changing face of relationships is well documented in the web portals and tabloids dealing with such news items. If you are following a story with some diligence, you will definitely get updates to piece together a complete picture.

But all is not good in the world of celebrity gossip. Sometimes yellow journalists fabricate entertainment news stories. These harm the reputation of the personality concerned and there are libel suits flying thick and fast. Celeb gossips have been known to wreck many homes in the tinsel town. There is a dearth of trust and loyalty among the celebs anyway, because of the high profile lives that they lead. When they are faced with the allegations of entertaining different partners their relationships fall apart like nine pins.

The paparazzi scoops that are contained in the pages are sometimes not as correct as they propagate themselves to be. With the coming of web portals and online entertainment portals, the popularity of celebrity gossip columns are now on the rise. Hollywood rumors are steadily becoming accurate with the coming of digital technology to ascertain information that they publish.

Pran – First Super Star Villain of Hindi Cinema

No Comments

If Pran would have been alive, he must say “TUMNE THIK HI SUNA HAI BARKHURDAR. PRANO KE BHI USUL HOTE HAI. EK DIN NIKAL HI JATE HAI PAR MARTE NAHIN. MARTA TO SHARIR HAI.”

After prolonged illness he died on Friday (09.07.2013) at Mumbai. He has worked almost in 375 films as lead hero, character artiste and villain. It is said, time would never wait for anyone but time used to be waiting for him in 60s and 70s. Meanwhile Pran made the films memorable with his extraordinary performance with real acting. The films that made Harivanshrai Bachchan’s elder son as Amitabh Bachchan – Majboor and Zanjeer. Pran made these films saleable on the box office with his incomparable styles and real performances.

Who one could have played better than Pran as Malang Chacha in Upkar, Sher Khan in Zanjeer, Jailer Raghubeer Singh in Kaalia, Kishanlal in Amar Akbar Anthony, Raka in Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai, Rana in Victoria No. 203, Rai Saheb in Parichay, Mohan in Kashmir Ki Kali….sorry the list is endless. Most of characters he has played become evergreen.

It was just coincidence for him to becoming an actor. One day Wali saab saw him at Pan shop and he got influenced with his way of talking and attitude and called him to Pancholi Studio. Then DM Pancholi was owner of well known production house in Lahore and Wali Saab used to work with him. Pancholi Saab so much influenced with the Pran’s style that he cast him as lead hero in Yamla Jat (1940).

After partition he came to Mumbai and so much of confident that he booked room in five star hotel Taj Mahal because he was sure he would get the job in the films. Ultimately he got the film Ziddi with help of Sahadat Ali Manto. He had been getting film offers as well as stardom. After that he never turned back.

It is also coincidence that Pran Saab died on such time when Bollywood is all set to remake his milestone film Zanjeer (1973). At the time when Pran was working in Zanjeer he was big star and Amitabh was newcomer with six flop films and this number grows up to 11 by the time film completes. But the film’s success has changed everything and prepared new background for Bachchan’s career.

Pran has worked with almost five generations in the Bollywood starting from Dilip Kumar to Salmaan Khan. I remember in my young age, that the films were a hit only by his name. Lead actors name were written on film posters in small font while his name used to be printed on bold letters of big font. This was the style. …… Actors: a,b ,c and PRAN.

Hats off to you Pran Saab. Bollywood will always remember you as good person as well as good actor who portrayed bad characters with full commitment.

After the success of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan watching Katrina sing would definitely be a treat for all her fans and we hope all goes well for her!

Katrina Kaif, who had been planning to sing for Ali Zafar’s music album has yet been uninitiated into the region of music. However, this will be the first when Katrina Kaif will sing for herself in a film.

Besides singing, Katrina Kaif has to work on other lot of things including her look, body language, spoken language and behavior of her character in the movie Dhoom 3. But right now, Katrina Kaif is working on her singing skills.

Katrina Kaif has a task cut out for herself in Dhoom 3. She will be required to do a lot of challenging things in the movie.

If getting trained in scuba diving or learning to ride a bike wasn’t enough, Katrina will now reach for the sky and try to learn para-gliding for her role in Dhoom 3 to be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya whose first film as a director, Tashan, failed to make a mark at the box office.

However, the director and producer (Aditya Chopra) have big plans for Dhoom 3, not the least of which is Katrina’s makeover in the movie.

Buzz is that Katrina will be doing incredible stunts in the movie, and her fans will be particularly pleased to know that she might even sing a song. Katrina has already taken her baby steps into the realm of music by learning to play the guitar. Well, at least she can strum after a fashion.

Ironically, though the actress is taking on new challenges, she is a bit squeamish about kissing or donning a bikini.

The movie will have Katrina paired opposite Aamir Khan. This would be their first film together, and considering the lengths to which the punctilious Aamir goes to slip under the skin of his character, Katrina better pull up her socks.
