    In Memoriam – Rituparno Ghosh

    The acclaimed director passed away today due to a heart attack
    The world of cinema is a much poorer place after the passing of Rituparno Ghosh today at the tragically young age of 49. Bollywood will remember him for his Raincoat, starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ajay Devgn, Chokher Bali, starring Aishwarya again, alongside Prosenjit and Raima Sen, The Last Lear, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Preity Zinta and Arjun Rampal and Antar Mahal, starring Jackie Shroff, Abhishek Bachchan and Soha Ali Khan, but the auteur’s oeuvre was much more than just films starring actors from Hindi cinema and spanned a multitude of genres.

    Annu Kapoor: ‘Vicky Donor’ is a fearless film

    Annu Kapoor: ‘Vicky Donor’ is a fearless film

    A light-hearted take on sperm donation, Vicky Donor is not a serious film though at the core it deals with taboo topics like infertility and masturbation – which we fear to discuss openly, says Annu Kapoor
    “If a man wants to donate his sperm, he must ejaculate without sexual intercourse, right? So even before infertility and artificial insemination, we are discussing masturbation here, aren’t we?,” asks Annu Kapoor, who will be seen playing sexologist Dr Chaddha in the new John Abraham production, Vicky Donor. “Self-pleasure is a normal thing. Why then are we Indians afraid to talk about something that is very natural, something we are born with? We are raising all these questions in Vicky Donor and our take on these taboo subjects is tongue-in-cheek,” says the veteran actor as he sets the tone of this interview. Click here to read more

    Ajay Devgn, happy birthday!

    Ajay Devgn, happy birthday!

    The Singham star – who turns 43 today – started out as an action hero, but in his two decade long career he has proven that he can do a whole lot more than break bones and pack a punch
    In 1991, a tall, dark and lean actor made an impressive entry with Phool Aur Kaante, not just with an iconic opening scene (remember Ajay Devgn standing atop two moving bikes?) but also at the box-office. After a steady track of hit action films, fight director Veeru Devgn’s son explored other genres and excelled in most of them. Click here to read more

    When it rains in Bollywood…

    When it rains in Bollywood…

    Our filmi folk come out in full force to do the song and dance routine with great enthusiasm. And some of those songs make history, adding colour to the cinematic skies
    Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky. – Rabindranath Tagore
    Bollywood songs speak of clouds that are full of joy, replete with tears, touched by nostalgia and coloured by romance. In the monsoon season there is nothing better like a rain song to add to the mood, the weather gods and the lords of music joining hands to make magic. Click here to read more
