    Kareena Kapoor: Me as hero? All I get is ‘Chammak challo’

    The Agent Vinod actor says Bollywood is too male-dominated for her to ever be at par with her heroes
    There’s a reason that Kareena Kapoor is yet to say yes to an item number in Dabangg 2. Just think about it. The male dominated industry has labelled Vidya Balan as the next Khan, after two films with her as the solo lead – The Dirty Picture and Kahaani – became blockbusters.

    Chitrangda and Katrina are out; now it seems Sudhir Mishra is going ahead with the Dirty Picture actor
    Finally we hear some good news about Mehrunissa, even if it strikes us as strange. If buzz is to be believed, Sudhir Mishra has finalised his heroine opposite Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. And it’s none other than Vidya Balan. It’s not the age difference that makes us wonder about the casting. After all, the previous names being tossed around were Chitrangda Singh and Katrina Kaif!

    Vidya Balan took time to become Silk Smitha

    Vidya Balan took time to become Silk Smitha


    The Dirty Picture director Milan Luthria reveals that a lot of talking and costume trails went into transforming the Ishqiya actor for her latest sensuous act
    When filmmaker Milan Luthria sat down with the script of The Dirty Picture he was sure he wanted an actor who could look sexy and punch in a power-packed performance. Also, the lady to portray Silk Smitha on screen had to have the deadly combination of boldness and innocence. Since there are not many leading ladies in Bollywood who can boast of all those qualities, the Once Upon A Time Mumbaai director didn’t have great difficulty finding his Silk Smitha.
