Priyanka Chopra to do an item song in Shootout At WadalaThe Chopra chick has finally given her nod to an item song is Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala, and we wonder why

‘Agent Vinod’ premiere to be held at Oman
Following the trend of holding film premieres abroad, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor will be seen attending the film premiere of Agent Vinod outside India
It has become a norm for Bollywood films to be showcased for an international audience even before it is shown in India.

Dinesh Vijan: ‘Agent Vinod’ will appeal to classes and masses!
The producer of Saif Ali Khan’s next film, an espionage thriller, is confident that it will connect with the audience
Dressed in a casual tee and ripped jeans, Dinesh Vijan, who is not just a MBA in finance but also a creative brain, spoke to us about his ‘boutique’ production house, his equation with the directors and the ‘Pyaar ki pungi’ song rip-off controversy
Sriram Raghavan told us that he decided the shooting locations of Agent Vinod based on his fantasy holiday ideas. How did you react to that as a producer?
When we make films, the primary idea is to first agree upon a script and then ensure that the director gets everything that he wants that the film demands (justifiably so). We are not thinking about saving money all the time. Our previous production, Love Aaj Kal, was supposed to be set in Delhi, but I suggested that if we set the film in London it would give it a better look and Imtiaz agreed. So it isn’t about saving money; the final product should be great. Creative as I am, I have also done a MBA in finance and I am good at number crunching, so it helps making decisions which are balanced. Click here to read more

AGENT VINOD music review: Forget mujra, pick the pungi!
Music director: Pritam
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
The so-called hip version of the mujra sticks out like a sore thumb in the otherwise slick soundtrack
Agent Vinod has only four songs and one theme track. It’s supposed to be an action-packed thriller and more songs would have surely ruined the pace of the film. Keeping the genre in mind all the tracks are slick and edgy, except one – Dil mera muft ka. If this song had not been promoted as a mujra and had been treated like just another item song, it could have worked better. Click here to read more
