    Oscar Awards 2012 winners: Bollywood tweets

    Oscar Awards 2012 winners: Bollywood tweets

    Bollywood wrote about the 84th Academy Awards winners on social networking site Twitter

    Looks like most people in Bollywood were asleep during the live telecast of the 84th Academy Awards. Some enthusiastic ones were wide awake though, and tweeted as the award ceremony was being aired. Amitabh Bachchan did not tweet but wrote about the winning film The Artist on his blog before the Oscars. He said, “I watched a lovely film ‘The Artist’ via the UFO set up in the house and it was a delight to see a black and white, silent movie in February of 2012!! In an age when color and music and speech and sound play such an important role in cinema today, it was most innovative on the part of the makers to present something like this. I believe it is up for the Oscars, which are out tomorrow on Sunday.” The others who tweeted included Neil Nitin Mukesh, Celina Jaitly, Shreya Ghoshal and Rajat Kapoor. Some film journalists were also tweeting incessantly. Amongst all the buzz, we liked what a music channel tweeted. Take a look at Click here to read more

    Vidya Balan in ‘The Dirty Picture’: Will Bollywood have more ‘real women’ like her?

    Vidya Balan in ‘The Dirty Picture’: Will Bollywood have more ‘real women’ like her?

    It’s naive to believe that the success of The Dirty Picture will radically enhance female clout in the Hindi film industry
    Game-changer. That’s the word I’ve heard most often with reference to the Ekta Kapoor-Milan Luthria-Vidya Balan juggernaut, The Dirty Picture, which steamrolled the box office, making over Rs 52 crore in week one. Incredibly, the film opened better than hero-led projects such as Singham and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Vidya oozing sexuality 1980s-style got more first-day, first-show viewers than Hrithik Roshan’s chiselled many-pack abs.
    The Dirty Picture is a woman’s story. It has a superb lead actor, old-school dialogue-baazi, and, critically, no A-list male stars to prop up the narrative. Yet, it defied Bollywood naysayers and became one of the year’s biggest successes. Which has led many industry observers to ask: does the film pave the way for more women-centric stories? Is Bollywood going to create more fleshed-out female characters? Are we going to see more ‘real women’ and fewer assembly-line Barbie dolls? Click here to read more
