|Chikni Chameli was a challenge|
Description: Katrina Kaif has a legion of fans jigging to the dance moves of _Chikni Chameli_, the item song inAgneepath. However, the dance moves in the song were difficult to execute for the actress.
_The response to Chikni Chameli has been fun so far. It was hard work. It was very fast and it was not a style I was used to, but I took it as a challenge...I think we all went for it as a team and did the best we could. I am happy people are liking it,_ Katrina Kaif said
When told that her former boyfriend Salman Khan is floored by the song and Katrina_s dance in it, Katrina said: _He has not told that to me but I think that's a great thing. He has a great taste in music and songs. So, if he likes it then it's great._
The 27-year-old actor is happy about how the year 2011 has turned out for her. She has two more hit films, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, in her filmography.
_2011 has been a really great year for me. All the goals I had in hand, I think everything turned out really well. I am very grateful for that...The best I could have wanted to come out of every project has come true this year,_ Katrina said.
The coming year will see the release of her film Ek Tha Tiger with Salman. She will also shoot Dhoom 3 with Aamir Khan and do a film with Shahrukh Khan as wel
|Shahrukh Khan wants to marry Vidya Balan?|
Description: Shahrukh Khan had recently expressed his desire to marry Vidya Balan and even add her surname 'Balan' after his name!
Hey, wait! Before you let your imagination fly, here's the story....
Praising Vidya Balan's performance in The Dirty Picture, producer Ekta Kapoor referred to Vidya as Vidya Balan Khan. Ekta only meant that Vidya had carried the entire movie on her shoulders. Vidya too joked and said she would love to be called Vidya Balan Khan. The talented actress further said, _Saare Khans ke naam kea aage Balan Laga dete hai (lets add Balan after the names of Khans)._
Shahrukh Khan was apparently the only actor who reacted to this and said, _If Vidya Balan gets married to me, I won't mind to putting her surname after my name._
Well, as you can imagine....this statement by Bollywood baadshah created quite a stir among the media. Quick to realise it, Shahrukh Khan added that Vidya has achieved a lot because of her talent. And for that reason, she should be recognised by her own name and so there is no need to call her Khan.
|Priyanka Chopra give a miss to SRK's party|
Description: Shah Rukh Khan decided to celebrate the release of Don 2 at Mannat on Saturday night. And while all his friends including Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, Chunkey and Bhavna Pandey and Mushtaq Sheikh chose to join in his celebrations, lead actress Priyanka Chopra was conspicuous by her absence.
A source from the party informed Mumbai Mirror, "Everybody at the party were heard whispering about Priyanka's absence. She is a very good friend of Shah Rukh Khan. She has been by his side for all the promotional events of Don 2. She had been a part of most of the parties at Mannat as well. It wasn't that she was traveling on Saturday. She was very much in the city. And till date, she has never missed SRK's parties."
At the last party held at Mannat during Eid, Priyanka was there from the very beginning. The actress had also cheered for Khan's IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders throughout the cricket season. Thus, her absence at the party last Saturday did raise a few eyebrows.
While industry insiders believe that there could be a bigger reason behind her non-attendance at the Don 2 party, a very close friend of the actress reasoned, "Priyanka was busy shooting at Madh Island. Then she had to come back to Versova. Her parents were leaving town. So she was busy."
|Bipasha wants to lie harmlessly|
Description: _I am going to lie a bit because sometimes it helps. I tried in 2011 but failed, so this time I am going to try to perfect it," said the Bong beauty
"I want to be a harmless liar,_ said Bipasha
Bipasha is enthusiastic with Player, an official remake of the Hollywood blockbuster The Italian Job, for more than one reason.
The dusky diva said: "The biggest USP of the film is, it_s an Abbas-Mustan film. They make entertainment films and it_s a movie you can enjoy and have a blast._
_Abbas got me into films; I did my first movie (Ajnabee) with them, so we share a very special bonding,_ added Bipasha.
The action thriller is directed by the Bollywood duo Abbas and Mustan, who are brothers. It is billed to be one of the most expensive films in Bollywood.
The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sikander Kher, Omi Vaidya, Vinond Khanna and Johnny Lever.
_The movie is not exactly Italian Job. In Players, the action is bigger, the characters are more dynamic and there are more twists and turns, _said Bipasha.
Basu, who will share screen space with Sonam in the film, praised her saying: "She is a wonderful girl, we like to hangout with each other._
Speaking about her expectation from the film, she said:"I am not a person who likes to expect, I b
|Why is Katrina 'Chikni Chameli'?|
Description: After Sheila, Munni, Shalu and Jalebi Bai, 'Chikni Chameli' is the latest item bomb in Bollywood. Katrina Kaif has outdone her 'Sheila ki jawani' act in the song, and "Agneepath" director Karan Malhotra believes she has done full justice to it.
"I think the way the song was made, it was so wonderful, that only a topmost actress could have done justice to the song. And as far as Katrina is concerned, her USP is that she has never been seen in any film in that kind of zone that 'Chikni Chameli' is in. So which is why she also stands out in that atmosphere and that is why the song is catching a lot of eyeballs," the director said at the music premiere of "Agneepath" at a radio station here.
The men behind the song are composer-brothers Ajay-Atul, primarily known for their work in Marathi films and serials. "Chikni chameli" is a song inspired by their own Marathi song "Kombadi palali".
Meanwhile, Katrina's fast, rhythmic 'Chikni chameli' act has set many eyeballs popping. "Agneepath", a remake of the 1990 film of the same name, is set for release Jan 26 next year.
It stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead with Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra and Rishi Kapoor in key roles.
|Vidya Balan says No to films with Emraan Hashmi|
Description: The Dirty Picture actor is offered two films opposite the serial kisser. But she isn_t jumping with joy to sign on for them
Ever since the unlikely pair of Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi got raves for their smoldering chemistry in The Dirty Picture, filmmakers have flocked outside their respective condos to sign them on together. Maybe there are more projects in store for them together, but as of now we know two filmmakers who are trying very hard to get the TDP actors into the same frame again. One is Vishal Bhardwaj (for Daayaan) and the other is Rajkumar Gupta (for Ghanchakkar). Contrary to reports, Vidya hasn_t said no to either to the Saat Khoon Maaf director or the No One Killed Jessica maker_s next films. She is considering both, but stuck with a terrible dilemma to decide on. Vidya doesn_t want to do both films with the same star as hero, since she believes that doing too many projects with Emraan will kill the sizzle and the surprise element of their pairing. And we agree with Ms Balan on this one. Repeating actors who have struck gold in their last film doesn_t mean guaranteed success. Our filmmakers desperately need to get innovative and, as for creating crackling onscreen chemistry, we think Vidya will manage to do it with any actor. Remember in TDP she managed to evo

'Most stylish actress! I think Sonam dresses pretty well, but they all doll up pretty well, but Sonam looks pretty good,' Siddharth said here at the red carpet of an award ceremony.
When asked about Deepika's style, the Kingfisher scion nonchalantly said: ''She has not got a bad sense of style either.'
But Siddharth played it safe when asked to choose the most stylish person of 2011.
'I've always actually said this that Prateik Babbar is pretty stylish. He has got his own sort of quirky sense of style. So he is pretty cool,' he said.
Siddharth has reportedly been dating Deepika for a while and the duo has been spotted together on several occasions

|Aamir can't get Enough of his Newborn|
Description: If there's anything that actor Aamir Khan loves doing these days, it is spending time and playing with his newborn son, Azad.
"It's a great joy being a father again. Both Kiran and I are so overjoyed with our baby being born and I just can't get enough of Azad," Aamir said at an event here.
The 46-year-old and his wife Kiran Rao were blessed with the baby boy Dec 1, through IVF to a surrogate mother. Aamir is simply in awe of their little bundle of joy.
"I tickle his little toe and then I snuggle up to him. Right now he doesn't even know who I am. He's too young but he knows that somebody comes and troubles him everyday. Every two, three hours somebody comes and troubles him. So, when he gets a little older, he will get to know that I am the guy," said Aamir, who already has two kids from his first wife Reena - a son, Junaid, and a daughter named Ira.
Aamir and Kiran spoke at the launch of the CDs and DVDs of the latter's directorial project "Dhobi Ghat", and were in a bit of a hurry to be back home.
"For the first time Kiran has left the house since the baby was born. So, we are also keen to get back fast. It's a miracle. A baby being born is a miracle and nothing comes close to it," said Aamir.
