Kangna Ranaut replaces Vidya Balan in ‘Shootout At Wadala’
The Rascals actor is slowly getting her career back on track after a couple of duds
You have to hand it to Kangna Ranaut. The gal didn’t have a very good 2011 – Tanu Weds Manu and Double Dhamaal were hits, but she had three big flops in Game, Rascals and Miley Naa Miley Hum. Her only other release is the action film Tezz, which is more about Ajay Devgn and Anil Kapoor’s characters than hers. While that would have made it tough for any other actor to reenter the race, Kangs was not deterred. Click here to read more
Finally, the ‘Delhi Belly’ director takes the spotlight
Abhinay Deo’s Game may have tanked at the box office, but he has certainly redeemed himself with the cracking film that is Delhi Belly
When Cineswami was offered a first class ticket to fly to London to attend the world premiere of Delhi Belly, which opened the 2nd London Indian Film Festival, it was an offer CS could not refuse. And it was a worthwhile experience indeed. For weeks now India has been inundated with Delhi Belly promotions, all featuring the ubiquitous Aamir Khan and his nephew Imran Khan and indeed the other actors in the film with nary a mention of the man who directed the film – Abhinay Deo. Now, Deo’s Game may have tanked at the box office, but he has certainly redeemed himself with the cracking film that is Delhi Belly. Click here to read more

Happy Birthday, Abhishek Bachchan!
Abhishek, who turns a year older, hopes for better luck at the box office in 2012
Abhishek Bachchan turns 36 today. And guess what he’s got on his wish list? To act in a film made on an environmental issue! Abhishek was recently awarded the Green Globe Award for his contribution to creating environmental awareness. The actor recently gave up his Bentley for a greener environment. And now is waiting for the arrival of electric cars. The year 2011 was a milestone for Abhi as far as his personal life goes. It brought Beti B into his life.

Is Kangna Ranaut inspired by Sonam Kapoor?
The Krrish actor declares that she’s absolutely fine with people noticing her style more than her acting prowess
We understand when someone like Sonam Kapoor says something like that because she’s an actor who’s well aware that her fashion acumen is way better than her emoting capability. We also think she does an intelligent job by not delving too much into the scripts and stories arena. Instead she continues sticking to the nuts and bolts of fashion – something she’s really good at. But when someone like Kangna says this, it does shock at least a li’l bit (not that we care much!). Click here to read more
