Is Mahie Gill getting typecast as a drunk?
The Dev.D actor is gearing up to play an alcoholic in her new film Gangs of Ghost. But hasn’t she done it already?
Versatile is a good way of describing Mahie Gill, say most critics. After all, she managed to be a feisty Paro in Dev.D, a seductive mistress in Gulaal and a bloody (that’s not a gaali, promise!) murderess in Not A Love Story. And then there is the Mahie Gill Click here to read more

Mahie Gill’s ‘Mona Darling’ will do sex scenes!
The actor will reprise Bindu’s iconic role in the Zanjeer remake
Bindu’s iconic ‘Mona Darling’ act in Zanjeer in 1973 is now being taken over by Mahie Gill, who admits the role is challenging but says she will pull it off. Ajit had played the arch-villain Teja in the original; for the remake, Prakash Raj has been roped in. Southern actor Ram Charan Teja, son of superstar Chiranjeevi, will step into Amitabh Bahchan’s shoes to play the Angry Young Man. “I was initially apprehensive about doing the part. I wondered if I’d be able to carry it off. It was director Apoorva Lakhia who convinced me. Now I’m very excited. To recreate the original vamp ‘Mona Darling’ of the 1970s for today’s audience is a challenge. And most of my scenes are with Prakash Raj who is a very good actor. I think I’ll be able to pull it off,” said Mahie, who recently wowed audiences with her bold avatar in Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster. Click here to read more

No James Bond for India, but Tom Cruise will visit for ‘MI4’
Cineswami talks about Hollywood’s India connection, and also Shahrukh Khan’s RA.One
Bond, James Bond. But Daniel Craig won’t be uttering those lines any time soon on Indian soil as the James Bond producers haven’t managed to reach an agreement with Indian Railways on permissions. Surely, there’s something black in the lentils as there have been protracted discussions on a part of the shoot happening in India. The Railways say that on their part everything was hunky dory and the decks were cleared for the world’s most famous secret agent to return to India for the first time since Octopussy. February would have seen a motorcycle-riding Bond, the very antithesis of Gandhian values, jump on a moving train near Sabarmati. That jump will now happen in the fallback location, South Africa.
At least Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt has no such issues. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol had a hush-hush shoot in India and also cast Anil Kapoor in it for good measure. Cruise will visit Mumbai for a fan screening of the film ahead of its world premiere in Dubai. This begs the question, if the film plays before the public in Mumbai first, shouldn’t that logically be called the world premiere? On such weighty semantic matters do the world revolve.
Meanwhile, the ubiquitous Shahrukh Khan is pulling out all the promotional stops till we have RA.One coming out of our ears. Click here to read more
