On June 25th 2011, Nayantara had her last day in front of the camera at Ramoji Rao Film city in Hyderabad. She wrapped up the shoot of her most ambitious film Sri Rama Rajyam, a film in which she plays Sita the most revered character in Hindu mythology.

In an exclusive chat, Nayan said: "I consider Sri Rama Rajyam as a blessing and it will always remain a film close to my heart. The last day of shoot was indeed a very emotional moment for me, as my director Bapu sir, is a living legend and I consider working under him as a great experience".

Trisha, in a recent interview to a Tamil magazine, has said that she agreed to star in Mankatha only because the film had Ajith playing the lead.

The actress said that she loved to work with Ajith and hence decided to sign the dotted lines despite her role being small.

Trisha made it clear that her role in Mankatha will not be as significant as it was in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya or Manmadhan Ambu but still she did it for Ajith.

On Ajith’s cooking at the Mankatha sets, Trisha said that he is a wonderful cook and Shalini is lucky to have him as her husband.

Anushka Sharma, Bollywood babe was detained by custom officials in Mumbai airport when she flew back from Toronto. Apparently she was held for 10 hours and interrogated by customs officials. All this, because she was carrying jewelry and expensive watches that have been estimated to be worth more than 20 lakhs!

The actress received the best actress award for Band Baaja Bharaat at the IIFA awards held at Toronto. But her luck turned soar after that, and she had to go through this ordeal which is still not over. IT officials have now stepped into the picture and they also have questions for her about her earnings and tax returns.

Anushka's representatives have claimed that the jewelry and watches were given to her by brands she endorses and she had declared them while leaving from India. The pretty and talented actress seems to be having a rough time of it currently.

Kajal Agarwal was supposed to do the Telugu remake of Dabangg with Pawan Kalyan. But due to certain differences with her director, she was shown the door. This altercation worked out for Shruti Hassan, as she was immediately offered the meaty role which catapulted Sonakshi Sinha, who did the Hindi version opposite Salman Khan into superstardom.

Shruti also has a film with Jr. NTR and another film with Siddharth. The singer/actor's career in Telugu films is red hot right now. In Tamil, she has 7am Arivu with Suirya directed by Murugadoss.

Things are looking less bright for Kajal as she seems to have become controversy's favorite child and this is affecting her career adversely.

It has emerged that James Bond star Daniel Craig and his girlfriend Rachel Weisz have tied the knot evading the public eyes in an undercover ceremony.

According to reports, the pair got married secretly in New York State last week in front of just four people.

The guests included Daniel's daughter Ella ,18 and Rachel’s son Henry, 4 along with two other family friends who acted as witnesses.

"Daniel and Rachel insisted on having a small, quiet wedding. They are madly in love and couldn’t wait to be husband and wife - but they wanted minimum fuss," quoted our source.

The pair has always kept their relationship undercover since they got together last year on the set of forthcoming movie The Dream House.

Jennifer Aniston has honoured the death of her beloved dog in a unique way - with her first tattoo.

The actress was spotted strolling through New York, revealing a tattoo on the inside of her right foot that read 'Norman'.

Norman was her Welsh corgi-terrier mix, who aged 15 and died in May.

Elizabeth Hurley fell victim to her sky-high heels as she took a tumble at a village fete in the Cotswolds in front of cricketer boyfriend Shane Warne.

Hurley, accompanied by Warne, was opening the Ampney Crucis Village Fete near her home in Gloucestershire in front of hundreds of villagers when the incident happened, reports the source.

Normally the epitome of elegance and poise, the model and actress was walking down some steps moments after cutting the ribbon to declare the fete open when her nude wedges got the better of her.

She lost her balance making a dive for the railings in a bid to stay upright and seemed to topple over on her left foot.

She did not appear to have hurt herself though as she was seen back on two feet within no time leafing through second hand books.

However, she did clutch Warne’s hand for the rest of the afternoon just in case she took another tumble.

It has emerged Cheryl Cole has obtained a new high court injunction, which threatens anyone who takes her photo with jail.

The order granted is so wide-ranging that a fan who has snapped her in the street and does so again runs the risk of prison.

The ‘crackpot’ order was pinned to lampposts outside her former home in Enfield, north London.It states it has been issued against “XYZ and others”, explaining that means anyone who has photographed her at her home and in the street during 2011.

And in stern block capital letters, it threatens: “Any person who knows of this order and disobeys this order...may be held to be in contempt of court and may be imprisoned, fined or have their assets seized.”

Employees, bosses and even friends of the ‘defendants’ are also restricted.

Legal experts blasted the granting of the order, pointing out Cheryl has used the press throughout her career to build her fame and fortune.

Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif topped the '100 Sexiest Women 2011' list of an entertainment magazine, edging out fellow star Deepika Padukone, who grabbed this title last year.

The list is based on short messaging service (sms) and online voting. The Bollywood actress got a whooping 35,000 votes.

According to the online poll and the sms votes, by the Indian edition of men's magazine FHM declared that the actress's average rating was ahead of the legendary cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar.

This is the third time that she has topped the sexiest woman poll. She won the same title in 2008 and subsequently in 2009.

While growing up, Katrina was very fascinated by this title and added that it would be interesting to show the magazine covers to her grandchildren after 50 years.

"Every one knows I have grown up in London, and out there was a very famous kind of you know the '100 most attractive women list'. And it was a lot of fun for me; I would see the people I would really like. So when they launched this in India, I was like that's quite interesting.

"First time I got this title, I was very shocked. Second time I got, I was like it's a lot of fun. And now this year, I think it's been a wonderful shoot. It's always nice, because I would say that when you have grandchildren and you look back over those years, I mean 50 years from now, I could have those magazine covers on a wall and I can say one time I was considered sexy," said Katrina Kaif.

The actress also features on the cover page of the latest edition of the magazine.

She also informed the media that she was never considered attractive. She feels indebted to her audience and fans for supporting her throughout her career.

Katrina seems to be the flavour of the season - she was the only Bollywood actress to feature on a magazine's 'Elite Power' list and is also the most searched Indian celebrity on Google.

It has emerged that Scarlett Johansson and Justin Timberlake were getting cosy with each other during their stay in New York.

Johansson, who worked with Timberlake in a video for his track ‘What Goes Around... Comes Around’ a few years back, was spotted laughing and flirting at posh club Kenmare. Later on they both turned up at the actor’s lofty apartment in New York.

“They were very touchy feely and sat close to one another in a VIP booth along with a few other pals. They hardly looked at their mates when they went to dance because they were so into one another,” said the source.

Johansson split with Sean Penn just a few weeks ago, while Timberlake also had broken up with Jessica Biel recently.

Congratulatory messages have been pouring in ever since Amitabh Bachchan revealed that his 'bahu' Aishwarya Rai is pregnant, but filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma had more than just good wishes for the would-be parents.

In a tweet to soon-to-be father Abhishek Bachchan, Varma, who is known for his caustic sense of humour tweeted "@juniorbachchan I hate beautiful women becoming pregnant but since she's ur wife I will make an exception.. congraaaaaaaats (sic)," Varma posted on the micro-blogging site.

"I worship beautiful women and I hate to see them ever become mothers and in case of aishwarya since she's the most beautiful I hate it even more (sic)," he added. But Varma said he is happy for the couple who are expecting their first child.

"Thait's me as a fan of the most beautiful woman on earth but being close to the so loving couple if that makes them happy it makes me double happy (sic)," he further tweeted.

Amitabh has worked in a number of films with Varma, who cast the Big B alongwith Abhishek and Aishwarya in Sarkar Raj in 2008.

Actress Anushka Sharma was seen running around at Toronto’s Pearson international airport on Wednesday afternoon looking rather upset?

The reason being that on arrival she couldn’t locate one of her bags for 15 minutes. Actress Kangna Ranaut, who was present with the actress was seen comforting her at the airport, as Anushka kept running from one officer to the other at the airport in search of her missing bag.

There have already been a few earlier reports of her being a tantrum queen and losing her cool at the drop of a hat.

“She has not got one of her bags and she is unhappy about it. I have already gotten in touch with the airlines and they are trying to trace the bag,” said an officer at the Pearson international airport, who was baffled with the fact that how a “15-minute delay could become such a huge issue with a passenger.”

Ranaut had walked up to her and even waited with her as Sharma glumly stood at the start point of the conveyor belt waiting for her bag. “We have told her that this is very normal and the bags might take a little longer than expected. Anybody who has travelled international before knows about this,” the officer added. “This is not the first time this has happened. I am waiting for so long and there’s no clue about what is happening. Everybody’s bags have arrived and only mine is taking so long,” she was heard complaining to her assistant who was accompanying her.

However the bags ultimately arrived and Sharma rushed out of the airport with her assistants, while Ranaut left a few minutes before her.

Sharma was so upset with her bags getting delayed that she didn’t even stop to pose for photos and give autographs to the screaming fans who had gathered outside the airport to catch a glimpse of the stars arriving at the airport for the event.

Nithya Menon is super excited that she had one of the biggest releases of her career so far, this weekend. And the actress is obviously eager to talk about it.

“180 is a film that I’m extremely delighted be a part of. I was really fortunate that my first Telugu film, Ala Modalaindi, was a massive success. Now, I have my fingers crossed for this one,” she says.

“I play one of the two leading ladies in the film opposite Siddharth. While Priya’s (her co-star Priya Anand) part is set in the United States, mine is in India. Accordingly, my character is rustic and more Indian. It is a fabulous story and our director Jayendra Sarma has ensured he’s pushed himself to deliver a film that’s really something different for the viewers,” says Nithya.

The actor is happy to be considered one of the most promising new faces in the Telugu and Malayalam film industries and says “I was fortunate that the films that I ended up signing have become big hits. It is heartening to see that people have accepted me and my films despite the fact that I have had no training as an actor.”

Incidentally, Kannada films are on Nithya’s career plan too. “I have just done small roles in films that have appealed to me. I am most comfortable speaking in Kannada. I am from here and the city is to my heart. While I do have a release, Aidondla Aidhu, where I play a character in just one of the five stories in the film, I want my Kannada debut to be big. I haven’t really gone about looking for big films to sign on. But, I’m hoping for one such in Kannada,” she signs off.

Shriya Saran might well have got herself in trouble again. The actress has said that it is really absurd to raise the legal age for drinking to 25 when people are allowed to vote and get married when they are 18 years of age.

Shriya has said that she is not advocating drinking but matured people should be allowed to make their decisions.

This statement from Shriya has raked up a controversy, no doubt.

Shriya has said that she does not want to discuss this issue again and has put an end to by saying sorry.

Ileana who is the highest paid actress in the South, has just booked herself a first-class ticket to Bollywood!

Ileana will be starring opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Anurag Basu's Barfi playing a very interesting character as the story arc for this role starts with her being a teenager and finishes at 60!

Ranbir will be a deaf-mute in this film. There is another meaty heroine role and word is that it will either go to Asin or Priyanka Chopra.

The Nanban heroine would have preferred a solo launch but she accepted as the role allows her to perform while showing off her glam side as well.

This is certainly an unconventional launch but Ileana is quite sure of making it work for her.

Sri Rama Rajyam , a Telugu epic film based on Ramayana has Nandamuri Balakrishna playing the lead role as Lord Rama with Nayantara as his Sita.

Nayantara is reported to be very dedicated towards this role by being on a vrat during the entire shoot of this movie following a strict vegetarian diet. She has also been avoiding her 'Sweetheart' Prabhu Deva and other social events respecting the impact of her powerful role that is esteemed as the standard setter for wifely and womanly virtues for all Hindu women.

Nayantara may be grabbing the marital rights of Ramlath in real, but in reel, the actress is sincerely doing the role of Sita.While the shooting of this film is nearing completion, sources reveal that the actress is to announce her retirement once Sri Rama Rajyam is wrapped.

Bollywood legend Naseeruddin Shah clarified that he is not imitating Rajinikanth in The Dirty Picture, a film chronicling the life of the late sex icon Silk Smitha.

The actor clarifies, “I am not playing Rajnikanth in the film I’m simply portraying an ageing superstar, modelled on many people. I will be using my own observations of Hindi stars for the part, since I am not very familiar with most of the southern actors.”

Talking of south Indian actors, we asked him about sharing screen space with actress Sneha, who is to make her Bollywood debut in the movie Mad Dad, alongside him.

Double Cheers for Vijay fans, if what we heard from the closer sources is believed to be true. It is time for Vijay to rock as he’ll be joining hands with filmmaker A.R. Murugadoss.

The film that is likely to be produced by Aascar Ravichandran and Vijay’s father’s S.A. Chandrasekhar on first copy basis with to release the film worldwide.

Soon after Fox Star Studios signed up A.R. Murugadoss as the creative producer, Murugadoss mentioned that more movies would be made under this collaboration and if things work out well, he might wield the megaphone for a film.

Murgadoss, who has been keeping busy with the post production work of his Suriya starrer 7am Arivu has met Vijay recently and narrated a oneliner that floored Vijay to have given his nod to the director.

Hold your breath now, the director is in plans to cast Bollywood beauty Sonam Kapoor opposite Vijay in this film. However the official announcement on this is yet to be made.

It was recently learnt that Sonam already had plans to star in South Indian films as well ever since her arch nemesis Sonakshi signed up Kamal Hassan's Viswaroopam who would not just be romancing the actress but also be directing her for the film.

The official announcement on this vijay-Murgadoss project would be made once the duo finalizes the script and other crewmembers.

Kajal Agarwal who paired with Karthi in Naan Mahan Alla says that Ranjini is the perfect match for Karthi.

At that time, when there were news about Karthi's personal relation with actress Kajal Agarwal about their chemistry on and off the screen - both the actors brushed the news to be mere rumors.

At this point of time, when Karthi is engaged to Ranjini who hails from Erode District. Their marriage is to take place on 3rd July and Kajal Agarwal while speaking about this marriage said, “Karthi is my close friend. I have shared lot of things with him when we were working on the sets of Naan Mahan Alla. Karthi is a wonderful person and has selected a bride that is best for him and his family," ended Kajal wishing the couple in advance.

Kajal Agarwal recently clarified the misconception that sparked off the controversy stating "I didn't consider myself as just a South Indian actress as I desire to continue acting in both North and South Indian films."

The actress who was really shocked at the impact of one's misunderstanding on her statement expressed her likeness towards South Indian films that gave her the opportunity to start her career as an actress. Although this clears the air, Kajal is still waiting for a response from the film fraternity towards her clarification.

With her Bollywood debut with 'Singham' opposite Ajay Devgan hitting theatres very soon, Kajal is expected to join K V Anand's crew for the shooting of 'Maatran' opposite Suriya that will commence only in the second week of July after his younger brother, Karthi's wedding.

The shooting of Mahesh Babu’s ‘Dhookudu’ is presently progressing in Hyderabad with some action scenes that would come before the interval being shot at the Chiran Fort.

Mahesh Babu’s character traits in the film is doing and getting what he wants and at the same time very easy going nature. Hence the tagline for the film is ‘Daring and Dashing’.

With Samantha cast opposite Mahesh, Sreenu Vytla is directing 'Dhookudu' under the banned 14 Reels Entertainment with SS Thaman scoring the music for the film.

Hits and flops are a part of an one's career. Putting the debacle of Nenu Naa Rakshasi quickly behind him, Director Puri Jagannath plunged into making his debut film in Hindi 'Bbuddah..Hoga Terra Baap' with Amitabh Bachchan and a group of Telugu actors.

Amitabh Bachchan, who was heard to be very impressed with Puri's working strategy has expressed his desire to work with him again for a home production with Abhishek in the lead.

"The director who was always inclined to work with Abhishek for a very long time readily accepted the offer, reports the source.

In all probability, this combination could go on floors some time next year and the director who is scheduled to direct Mahesh Babu for 'The Businessman' has already zeroed in on the project's Hindi version with Abhishek Bachchan.

Amala Paul recently got the opportunity to act with Prithviraj in a Malayalam film. The actress was very happy as Malayalam is her mother tongue, and Prithviraj is a huge star.

Unfortunately Amala couldn't accept the offer as the production crew wanted bulk dates from her in July and she had already given those dates for Mupozhudum Un Karpanai with Atharva.

The pretty actress had no choice but to refuse.

She said that since her career in Tamil films is looking good, she intends to stay focused and make Tamil cinema her priority for the moment.

All her forthcoming films are good projects that offer her plenty of scope to perform, so Amala Paul says she is very happy and content.

Suriya and the 7am Arivu team were shooting in Mumbai, recently. Priyanka Chopra was present in the vicinity and she came over to say hello to cinematographer, Ravi K Chandran, since the two of them have worked together.

Priyanka enquired about Suriya, and said that she has seen him on the cover of a lot of magazines.

Apparently, Priyanka thinks Suriya is really hot and one of the best looking men in the country! Looks like Suriya has even more fans than he knows!

Ajith will sport a new look in Billa 2 and for this purpose an experienced makeup man from Hollywood has been signed up.

Billa 2 being a prequel to the earlier released Billa, focuses more on Billa’s early life requiring Ajith to essay a role of a 20-year-old.

The star is undergoing rigorous exercises to tone down his body and look like a 20-year-old. Moreover, the makeup artiste will give several tips to perfect his look in Billa 2. The first photo shoot of Billa 2 took place recently, sources in Kollywood reveal.

This movie is being directed by Chakri Toleti and has newbie Huma Quereshi as Ajith’s onscreen pair.

Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul play sisters in Vettai, says report from Kollywood. Interestingly, it is Sameera playing the eldest sister of the two.

The two heroes in this flick are Madhavan and Arya. While Arya plays the youngest and Madhavan is the one elder to him.

According to grapevine, Vettai is a family saga with loads of sentiments, action, romance and emotions.

Lingusamy is directing this flick, which is produced by his home production Tirupati Brothers. Yuvan Shankar Raja has scored the music and Nirav Shah has handled the camera for Vettai.

Dhanush and Selvaraghavan have decided to pen the lyrics of Irandam Ulagam themselves. There are six songs in the album altogether and the brothers have written them all. Selva began Irandam Ulagam several months ago but the film is progressing slowly due to various factors.

Not wanting to wait for the lyricists to come out with the songs, Selva and Dhanush have decided take it upon themselves. GV Prakash is setting the tunes for these songs.

The shooting of Irandam Ulagam has been put on hold because Dhanush had to stay by Rajini’s side owing to his health concerns and now because of Selva’s impending marriage with Geetanjali.

Director Arivazhagan’s upcoming project has been titled Vallinam. The director shot to limelight with the trendsetter Eeram and began his next project with Nakul in the lead.

Vallinam revolves around a basketball player and Nakul underwent special training to ensure that he lived the role rather than act.

Nakul is extremely positive over the way this project is shaping up and declared Thaman's music to be the highlight of Vallinam. He added that he is sure Arivazhagan will give him the much needed break in Kollywood.

"Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez will soon have a star with her name on it on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in recognition of her musical career" announced The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce that grants this honour.

Lopez is scheduled to be one of the artists to be honoured with a star on the walkway in 2012, although those selected to receive stars have five years to set the dates for their star placement ceremonies.

Besides Lopez, Mexican singer Pepe Aguilar is also on the list of those selected to receive a Walk of Fame star. “The committee has selected a fabulous slate of stars to add sparkle and luster to the Hollywood Walk of Fame over the next year" said John Pavlik, the chairman of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Selection Committee.

Among those on the list of honourees for 2012 are Jennifer Aniston, Vin Diesel, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet, Matt Groening, Mariska Hargitay, Walter Koenig, Adam West and Boyz II Men, and Richard Burton and Barry White are scheduled to receive posthumous stars.

Lohan, who was once considered one of Hollywood's most promising actresses got her career fallen on hard times due to her personal and legal troubles.

Starting with the 2007 drunk driving case that she has been dogged for years, Lohan has served several stints in rehab and jail for violating her probation.

A judge last year ordered Lohan to court for missing alcohol education classes for which she did time at the rehab center in southern California. She was then released from that facility in January only to land herself in trouble again, stealing the necklace from a Los Angeles jewellery store.

In a sheer violation of probation terms, Lindsay Lohan now runs the risk of landing behind the bars as she has yet again tested positive for alcohol while under house arrest.

Lohan, who is already under 35 days house arrest for a previous probation violation, has been summoned to appear in front of Judge Stephanie Sautner at the LAX Courthouse for a probation hearing.

The 24-year-old troubled actress has tested positive for alcohol twice last week, which may be termed as a direct violation of the terms of her probation.

Sources report that the Los Angeles County Probation Office may just ask the Judge to cancel Lohan’s house arrest and put her straight back in jail.

Lohan had been seen having a party on the roof of her Venice beach house on the 13th June, one of the days she reportedly tested positive for alcohol. However she denied taking any alcohol that day.

“I had these great people come over who I hadn’t seen in a while. It was a nice day to go outside. I should be able to utilise the space I’m limited to,” quoted Lindsay.

“When my friends come over, they’re not drinking. Alcohol is not in my house, so it’s just not part of my life,” she added.

Actress Eva Mendes has been granted a three-year restraining order against a man who has allegedly bothered her since 2008.

Mendes was given a temporary restraining order against John C Luna, after telling a judge that she has been living in “constant fear” of Luna, who claims to be engaged to the actor.

He had showed up at her Los Angeles home in May this year, reported Contactmusic.com.

Luna, 39, who last showed up at Mendes's home at LA has been given a restraining order by a judge at the Los Angeles Superior Court to stay at least 100 yards (91 metres) away from the 37-year-old actor for the next three years.

It has emerged that Mad Men beauty Christina Hendricks is most likely to play the role of Wonder Woman in an upcoming movie.

Director Nicolas Refn said that Hendricks, who plays Joan Harris in the hit TV drama, would be perfect for the role. He also added that the project was one of his ambitions for the future.

"If I ever get to do it, she's going to be it," stated Nicolas.

"I've been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life," said the flame-haired beauty, who won the best supporting actress award for her role as Joan in Mad Men.

It really doesn’t matter whether Priyanka's ongoing problems with actor Shahid Kapoor have been sorted out or not.

The actress Priyanka Chopra has once again gone back to her usual ‘no talk about my personal life’ space. Her relationship with Shahid Kapoor thus enters into a thanda zone, where both will deliberately continue to remain aloof from each other.

“Priyanka and Shahid had fought bitterly on the sets of a film, when he felt being targeted, says the source.

"He wondered how stories about him crop up continuously, when only ‘professional stuff’ about Chopra was doing the rounds. They had an argument following which Priyanka clarified to others that both were still friends in spite of all the speculations,” added the source.

However, now that Shahid has moved to his films - the two are reportedly not interacting for over a month now. Priyanka has apparently instructed her staff to ensure that she is not troubled with the any question that has anything to do with her personal life again.

“Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra might now act in a few more movies and even agree to give interviews together because both have agreed that they have reached a zone of no return. Shahid is a little jittery about working with Priyanka although she seems fine with the idea,” the source adds.

Actress Neetu Chandra, who has a versatile personality and has done more than 20 films, including two national award-winning ones, feels proud of the projects she has been a part of. The actress reveals that the journey has been worth taking only because of the ‘good’ people she met in the industry.

Talking about her projects, she says, “I am currently working on some projects and I have signed a big banner film which will be announced soon.” She adds further, “I am not the kind of person who runs behind people to get a role. If I feel I suit a role, then I pursue it or else I don’t. I also believe that being at the right time at the right place helps a lot. But what has really helped me is my work and being able to work with some amazing directors.”

Ask her about turning producer with a Bhojpuri film Deswa, and she replies, “Firstly, it’s a bilingual and I don’t know why people feel it’s just Bhojpuri. It could be because I am from Patna. I decided to produce this film because of the story.

Deswa has an amazing story which I felt people will like but many feel I turned producer because I had no work. I don’t want to say anything to them, my films and work will speak for me.”

Chandra feels proud to be a self-made actor. “I feel every industry has nepotism and I personally don’t think it’s wrong. Today, I am an actor and tomorrow if my kid wants to be one, I don’t feel there’s anything wrong in it. However, I feel happy that I made it here without any Godfather. It wasn’t easy but then do you value the things you achieve easily?” she ends.

Emma Watson has admitted being 'a bit scared' during the filming of the final installment of the Harry Potter Franchise, The Deathly Hallows II.

"It was a bit scary at times when all the fake bombs were going off as We didn't really have much training or much warning sometimes," she explained.

"Although they can prepare you and put stunt doubles in there, there's a certain amount that you have to do yourself. You can't get away from doing nothing."

So what was the scariest stint that she had to do herself? "I threw myself off the top of a vault onto the back of a dragon. But it meant that I was doing a sort of... I mean I had crash mats. I don't want to exaggerate, 20 or 30 foot drop. I just had to dive off into my stomach."

Emma explained, "Your body's saying, 'No,no,no!'. And you have to just do it. And the pyrotechnics. There were lots of bangs and explosions."

Well not many people know that I am a professionally qualified computer engineer. Yes, I’m pretty studious as a person. Guess it came from my mother who is a teacher.

Contrary to what people think, I love to spend time home alone or with my family and don’t like partying much. But yes, when I do go out to party I like to make the most of it and party real hard.

People usually mistake me for being a total party animal who loves to socialise, but the fact is that I’m actually quite the opposite. I love to spend time at home with close people and as much as possible I always try and avoid parties unless there is a prior commitment.

People who get to know me over a period of time realise how different I really am from the persona or the image that the industry has created of me. The real Payal is a complete homebody, who’d rather stay home than party.

J.K. Rowling finally unveiled her highly-anticipated Pottermore website Thursday.

Beginning this October, the seven Harry Potter novels will be released on eBooks, and an interactive community will launch online. She hopes it will encourage more people to begin reading.

But fans were a little confused about the site on Twitter, where Rowling's initials, #JKR, quickly became a trending topic Thursday morning.

It seems that Pottermore is both a social network and the encyclopedia, an Interactive Online Experience.

While there were a few jokes about Pottermore, some really made a lot of sense given that Rowling has sold more than 400 million copies worldwide and the Harry Potter movies are the most profitable franchise of all time. Overall, the fans were excited and the jokes started as follows:

"Obama declared war against the UK because Pottermore didn't accept his email address."

However, the 25-year-old star says that although he "loves making" the sci-fi movies, his days of fighting Decepticons are over for good.

"I just don't think there's anything [left] to contribute - there's nowhere to take Sam," stated Shia at the "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" premiere in Moscow on Thursday, when asked if he would be on board for a possible fourth installment. "I think creatively we've taken it as far as we can, and to do another one is purely a profit motive.

"I've given it my all and I'm proud of these three movies - I'm most proud of this third movie," he continued. "I feel like it's really hard to top this!"

Asin has officially entered a golden era in her career. She is one of the lucky few to have worked with two out of the three Khans in Bollywood. Not only that but she has delivered blockbuster hits with them that have smashed records at the box office and made her the lucky mascot for the Khans.

With Aamir Khan, Asin had Ghajini which exceeded all expectations and propelled her into the highest echelons of stardom. And unlike other Bollywood wannashines, she did not grab every offer that came her way though there were offers aplenty. She bided her time and released her second film with Salman Khan, London Dreams which crashed and burned at the box office. Insiders wrote her off as a one-film wonder. But then Ready with Salman Khan came along and went on to become one of the biggest grossers in Bollywood history.

Asin has consolidated her position in Bollywood, and is all set to become the reigning Queen Bee. Her next project is Housefull 2 with stars like Akshay Kumar and John Abraham.

The big news for Asin is that of Vishal Bharadwaj's adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's Two States with Shahrukh Khan, who is very keen on working with Asin. With the Khan triumvirate by her side, Asin definitely has an impressive triumph in Bollywood.
