Asin to star opposite Shahrukh Khan

 Mumbai: Looks like South Indian actress Asin Thottumkal is all set to play the female lead in Vishal Bhardwaj’s screen adaption of bestseller ‘Two States’. The film is based on the book by Chetan Bhagat and Sajid Nadiadwala is producing it. What more, superstar Shah Rukh Khan is going to play the lead role.

Asin is already working in Sajid’s other production, ‘Houseful 2’. The actress has apparently met the producer and director Vishal Bhardwaj to discuss the story of the story. Needless to say, the actress is very excited about the offer.

If all goes well, then Asin would be the first amongst her peers to have worked with all the three Khans. She has previously worked with Aamir Khan in ‘Ghajini’ and with Salman in ‘London Dreams’ and ‘Ready’.

There were rumours about Priyanka Chopra being offered the role and later Deepika’s name was also mentioned.

Speaking to a daily, a source said, "Asin is already a part of ‘Housefull 2’ and hence she often featured in the discussions about the casting for ‘2 States’. Sajid and Asin share a comfortable relationship and the actress was excited to be a part of the film, which not only features Shah Rukh but also will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. She is currently out of town but is expected to sign the papers as soon as she lands back in city.”

The source further added, “Vidya Balan too was being considered for the role after Priyanka Chopra, since the female lead in the film is South Indian. Asin fits the bill for the same reason.”

When contacted, Sajid Nadiadwala and Vishal Bhardwaj, both remained unavailable for comments.

Aamir's Delhi Belly budget 30 crores

Dear Aamir, is bad the new good in selling films?

Actor Aamir Khan's production venture 'Delhi Belly' has gone way over budget...

One would think that Delhi Belly starring Imran Khan, Veer Das and Kunal wouldn't be a very expensive venture. However, Aamir Khan insists that movie will cost as much as a whopping Rs. 30 crores. When we caught up with the actor, he told us, "The budget has gone way overboard. But that happens with every movie we produce, be it Lagaan, Dhobi Ghaat, Peepli Live, or even Delhi Belly. We thought 'Delhi Belly' would be around 20 crores. Now, I see it easily costing us about 30!"

Aamir cites creative decisions as the reason for this. "I'm more of a creative person than a business person. So I tend to spend more once the creativity is justified, rather than curb creativity to stick to a limited spend."

When asked if the delay has caused an up in the spends, Aamir is quick to say, "Not at all. There was no re-shooting done. Yes, there has been a delay, but that has just affected the release date of the movie, and not the cost."

The delay in releasing Delhi Belly Aamir attributes to his busy schedule.

Salman's jungle Adventure film in 3D!

"First of all I am not playing Tarzan in the film and it has got nothing to do with the character at all. It is an adventure film based in a jungle," clarified Salman Khan about his next endeavour with his brother Sohail.

While he dismisses any link to the famous man of the jungle in Sher Khan, the brothers are reportedly toying with the idea of making the film in 3D.

Our source told us, "It is Sohail's idea to make it in 3D. However, Salman bhai is still in two minds about this. Shooting in 3D is very difficult and going by the standards of special effects expected these days, the Khan brothers want everything to be sorted before they take the final call.

However, Sohail is quite confident given his technical finesse. He is known to be very hands-on, as far as his films are concerned. Plus the film is a jungle adventure and so it will be fun watching the film, if it is in 3D."

When asked about his scepticism to make the film in 3D, Salman explained, "As far as 3D goes, I am not sure. We are definitely thinking about it. However, 3D films have not worked in India and I am not too sure about its market."

When contacted, Sohail said, "I am still working on the script and only after the script develops, we will decide if it has 3D scope or not."

Salman Khan and Katrina in ‘Ek Tha Tiger’

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif literally join hands and wrap arms for the upcoming Yash Raj Film Ek Tha Tiger.

The duo surely harbours no grouse against each other after the break-up last year and was completely at ease shooting for a special photoshoot for the film at Salman’s house. The images from the shoot are out and we present them to you.

Ek Tha Tiger is based on a story written by Aditya Chopra. This is Salman’s first film as a hero with the Yashraj banner.

Talking about the film, Salman says that he and Aditya have talked about various projects in the past, but nothing materialized.

“In the past Adi and I have met a few times on various projects but somehow, when Kabir and he came to me with this particular story, we all just knew that this was the one. It is a very ambitious project and will be a challenge for all of us, but that's exactly what makes it such a big draw. Above all this, I’m honoured to be working with Yashji, who has worked so closely with my Dad in the past,” Salman is quoted to have said.

The film’s shoot will begin in July. Its music will be by Pritam and cinematography will be by Aseem Mishra (DoP of Kabir Khan’s New York). The screenplay and dialogues have been penned by Kabir Khan along with Nilesh Misra.

Dhobi Ghat (Trailer)

Written and directed by Aamir Khan's wife, Kiran Rao, the Aamir Khan produced movie Dhobi Ghat follows four different characters who all live and work in the washer area known as Dhobi Ghat near Mahalaxmi Station on the Western Railway in Mumbai. The washers, who are called dhobis, work with local hotels and hospitals and their job consists of washing clothes in the open air. This 'outdoor laundry' has even become a tourist attraction.

Dhobi Ghat stars Prateik Babbar, Aamir Khan, Monica Dogra and Kriti Malhotra. Aamir Khan plays a painter named Arun, Prateik Babbar portrays Munna, a washer, Kriti Malhotra plays a Muslim girl called Yasmin and Monica Dogra portrays a banker named Shai who is only in India on holiday.

The movie follows these four individuals and shows how their lives are intertwined. "Dhobi Ghat is my homage to Mumbai and its people - people on the trains, in the boats, stuck in traffic, perched on the construction sites, sitting by the sea, thinking of tomorrow," director Kiran Rao told reporters. "What started five years ago as a vague idea is now a 100-minute reality and I am most excited and very nervous," she added.

Shai and Arun meet during the opening of Arun's new art show. They end up sleeping together but in the morning they part ways thinking they will probably never meet again. Munna, a young dhobi whose job it is to wash Shai's clothes, dreams of becoming an actor. He convinces Shai to help him with his portfolio and in return, he promises the banker to show her the real city. They become friends but Munna soon falls in love with Shai.

Dhobi Ghat hits theaters on January 21, 2011. Check out the trailer here and let us know if you think it will be a hit or a miss.

Salman Khan out, Sanjay Dutt in : Dus Ka Dum

Negotiations have fallen through with Salman. He is out of Dus Ka Dum.

Sanjay Dutt whom Salman has acknowledged as his mentor and guru in the past, will step into Salman's place. This would be Dutt's first tryst with television.

So far Dutt has shied away from television arguing that the medium would cramp his style. It was Dutt's good friends the Bachchans who convinced him to go for it.

The Big B whom Dutt considers his mentor and is a pioneer among celluloid stars on television, is at this very moment ready to sign on for another season of Kaun Banega Crorepati with Sony Entertainment even before the current season is half-done.

A source said, "Sanju was in two minds. One look at Amitji's track-record on the home-viewing medium convinced Sanju to go for it."

Negotiations between Salman Khan and the channel have fallen through due to "irreconcilable financial differences". The channel has quietly moved on.

They've zeroed in on what they think would make for an even more interesting host on Dus Ka Dum.

A very reliable and unquestionable source from the channel confirms that discussions with Sanjay Dutt have reached a final stage.

"We've also been in very serious discussions with Anil Kapoor. Neither Sanjay Dutt nor Anil has done television before. That's what places them above Salman Khan in our list of hosts," a source said.

Apparently Anil who played a Kaun Banega Crorepati-styled game-show host in Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire was the channel's first choice to host Dus Ka Dum after Salman.

However Anil would be busy shooting for Mission Impossible 4 at the time when Dus Ka Dum is slated to go on air. So Dutt it is.

Apparently the channel is willing to pay Sanjay Dutt a hefty amount of money to get him to do television. But no one is willing to disclose the sum being offered to Dutt.

A channel source said, "We're just happy to have him on board. At any cost."
