Ileana D’Cruz to act in Dhoom:6?Yes, that’s what the babe thought when she was offered a role in Barfi!

What does UTV have in store for 2012?
UTV has a rather limited slate lined up for 2012, comprising only six films. But clearly, the company believes in quality over quantity. But are the films really going to work? Let’s take a look
First up is Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, due a February 10 release, a co-production with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The synopsis goes thus: EMAET is a lighthearted, tragicomedy about a guy in his mid twenties, going through a breakdown in his personal as well as work life. Rahul Kapoor (Imran Khan), 26, loses his job as an architect in Vegas and by a twist of fate he meets Riana Braganza (Kareena Kapoor), a quick-witted hairstylist, who is everything he isn’t. Will this friendship turn to love? The film has a great title that has an instant nostalgia name recall value besides a killer cast and music by the brilliant Amit Trivedi. Since it’s also releasing in the Valentine’s Day frame, it’s likely to be a winner. Click here to read more
JHALAK DIKHHLA JAA 5: Is Ranbir Kapoor trying to ape Karan Johar?
When Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz popped up on the sets of the dance reality show to promote Barfi!, everyone present put their quirkiest foot forward. Curious to know what happened next? Read on…
A little while ago the Barfi! team comprising of Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz visited the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5. On reaching there they sprinkled some Barfi! magic on everyone present, or so it seemed. Click here to read more
Why did Katrina Kaif refuse ‘Barfi!’?
Rumour suggests that the babe was not too keen to share screen space with Priyanka Chopra and hence when she was approached for the role she initially agreed, but after a couple of days opted out and cited her busy schedule as her reason for the exit
The best part is that amidst all this to-ing and fro-ing, the one person who has benefited big time is South actor Ileana D’Cruz. And if Kat hadn’t been reluctant to take up the project, Ileana may or may not have had the opportunity to work with Ranbir Kapoor in her first Bollywood film. So while Anurag Basu has been emphasising the fact that Cruz was an instant choice after Kat refused, we personally feel that Kat has missed out working on an extremely interesting project.

Tamannaah grabs limelight in Tollywood
Six years ago when Tamannaah started her career in the south, she was just one of the many glam dolls who dotted the horizon for the chauvinistic leading man to take his pick. However, the success of her last two movies has changed this perception forever
Though the dainty south actor, Tamannaah has been appreciated in the past for her acting, her scintillating performance in the Junior NTR starrer Oosaravelli has grabbed audience attention like never before. Essaying the role of a girl with a traumatic past, Tamannaah captured the imagination of Tollywood. “Such roles are rare and I am glad that I got the opportunity to play such a strong character in what was a hero-dominated movie,” she says and adds that unlike in the past where friends would complement her on ‘looking pretty or cute’ , this time everyone loved her acting. Coming immediately after the success of 100 Percent Love where she managed to steal the spotlight from Naga Chaitanya, this is one lady who is truly leading the way. We wonder if her arch rival Ileana’s fall in Tollywood is making Tamannah’s success even sweeter?Click here to read more

Ileana cuts salary to Rs 1 crore
From being the lucky charm of Tollywood, why has the actor suddenly become the untouchable in Telugu cinema?
‘What goes up must come down’ is a law of physics that our superstars seldom believe in. The latest to realise this hard truth is Ileana, who had become the darling of the masses and her directors, thanks to a series of hits.
It seems like the actor has now hit the trough now, as most of her hyped releases including Shakti with Jr NTR and Nenu Naa Rakshasi with Rana Daggubati, have fallen flat at the box-office. So, where does this leave the pretty bombshell? Click here to read more
First Priyanka, now Kalki: Katrina’s cold wars continue
With three of her last six films being flops, it looks like Kat’s beginning to feel the heat
There is a lot of buzz about Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin not getting along while promoting their upcoming film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Female actors in the same film seeing each other as rivals is nothing new – whether it was Karisma Kapoor and Raveena Tandon battling it out on the sets of Andaz Apna Apna, or B-town’s leading ladies, from Kajol to Urmila Matondkar, refusing to accept the role of Nisha in Dil To Pagal Hai as they did not want to be sidelined by the film’s heroine, Madhuri Dixit.
