Tanvi, in her address, revealed how hard it is to make it big in Bollywood.

But Tamil cinema is different and I am hoping to do more projects here," she said.

The much-anticipated 84th Oscars Awards ceremony kick started in the US today.

This year, it is The Artist that swept the Oscars with five awards. The Artist was adjudged as the Best Motion Picture. The crowd gathered gave huge round of applause when Tom Cruise announced the film as the winner.

Interestingly, the Best Actor award went to Jean Dujardin for The Artist and another honor for The Artist with director Michel Hazanavicius receiving the Best Director award. The Artist also bagged the Best Original score award which went to Ludovic Bource.

Best Actress in a leading role went to Meryl Streep for starring in The Iron Lady.

The award for Best Documentary Feature went to Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy for Saving Face. Sharmeen is a Pakistani and reports say that this is the first time a Pakistani is winning a Oscar award.

The Descendants won the Best Adapted Screenplay. This film is based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings. Screenwriter and director Alexander Payne along with Nat Faxon and Jim Rash had written the screenplay for The Descendants.

Now that the shooting of 'Ek Tha Tiger' has wrapped up in Cuba, Salman Khan is back in the city and is all set to switch on to the avatar of Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg 2 directed by his brother Arbaaz Khan, who is busy as of now searching for the most suitable cast for the movie.

News is that there have been a few drop outs from the prequel.

Not just that, in Dabangg2, there are reports of a few additions to the already existing cast. But buzz is that baddie Sonu Sood will not be seen in the movie while Sonakshi Sinha will continue to be Salman's lady love.

The music of the sequel will be composed by Sajid-Wajid.

The shooting is likely to go on floors in March.

The makers of the sequel of last years’ hit film, Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster, have roped in actor Soha Ali Khan in the role of Irrfan Khan’s tormented wife.

Soha's role would borrow quite a lot from yesteryear film, Anupama, in which her mother, actor Sharmila Tagore, was seen as a suppressed daughter.

“Nothing and no one is ever how they seem. I’m very excited about the role,” Soha was quoted as saying.

Sunny Leone, the famous Indo - Canadian pornstar, whose claim to fame in India was Big Boss 5, is now very much a part of our Bollywood fraternity.

Mahesh Bhatt, known for his keen eye for fresh faces, noticed Sunny on the show, and now the sensuous actor will be making her Bollywood debut with Mahesh Bhatt's JISM 2.

Sunny Leone has also found a fan in ace director Ram Gopal Varma, who wants to cast her in his movie as well. Expressing this desire to her so called 'guardian' Mahesh Bhatt, RGV was requested to go ahead, but on two conditions; that his movie be released only after JISM 2, and to give an equally sensuous role to Sunny in his movie.

It is found out that RGV has not taken Bhatt's demands kindly, and is extremely annoyed with the Bhatt camp. He is now completely rubbishing news of approaching Mahesh Bhatt, to cast the sensuous soon to be Bollywood actress!

Looks like Mahesh is definitely looking after Sunny Leone's best interests. After all, she is his discovery!

These are thoughtful times for actress Chitrangada Singh. After her critically acclaimed roles in films like HAZAARON KHWAISHEIN AISI, KAL - YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW and SORRY BHAI the actress is currently going through a phase of regret.

This phase of regret has to do with her last film DESI BOYZ in which Chitrangada tried to go for some image makeover but did not quite make it.

Now, we hear the actress is going through a low phase for working against her "serious actor" image with her last film DESI BOYZ that did little to help her in any way. While she is trying to get back to doing some serious, hard hitting roles again, meantime her act in the upcoming film JOKER will be another attempt by her to fiddle with her image.

According to reliable sources, "Chitrangada has fully realized the folly of trying to move away from her serious image as an actress. The audiences have not accepted her despite many filmmakers going gaga over her sensuous looks. Now, with JOKER, in which she has a fun loving character too, chances are slim that Chitrangada can look convincing in such a role after being associated for breaking the stereotype with her earlier films."

While it would be interesting to watch how Chitrangada fares in her item girl image in JOKER, the fact is that going back to doing some serious roles is the best counsel she can take home.

Vidya Balan, whose film count includes mostly female-oriented themes, says the film industry changed over the years and co-incidentally she has become the face of this change.

"I believe that change doesn't happen overnight, it takes time. I am lucky that today when we are feeling the change, it's a co-incidence that I have become a face of this change," she said in an interview.

Vidya gave strong performances in "Ishqiya", "Paa", "No One Killed Jessica" and " The Dirty Picture". The 33-year-old, who will be seen next in Sujoy Ghosh's "Kahaani", feels lucky to be present at a time when such stories are being written.

"I am lucky to be a part of Indian cinema at a time when such stories and roles are being written and I am getting a chance to be a part of such good films. I try to do my work honestly. It feels great to get so much love from the people," said Vidya who had stormed the industry with her very first film "Parineeta" in 2005.

Releasing March 9, "Kahaani" is a thriller and shows a pregnant woman's struggle to find her missing husband in Kolkata.

While most actors usually shy away from discussing their cosmetic surgeries, Shruti Haasan - the 26-year-old daughter of veteran actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika had no problem in admitting that she went under the knife for a nose-job before her Bollywood debut.

"I had a common disorder involving a deviated septum and I underwent Septoplasty, a corrective surgery in the United States avoiding further breathing problems," revealed Shruti Haasan on BIG CBS Love’s show “India’s Glam Diva” adding "Life has become a lot easier post-surgery and I am now able to sleep and sing peacefully without any difficulty. It was a minor procedure and I am greatly relieved."

Shruti, who made her Bollywood debut with “Luck” in 2009 is also a singer and was apprehensive about undergoing the surgery for the fear of the procedure affecting her voice.

Thus clarifying that the procedure was performed for medical reasons.

Director Bala is planning to rope in his Naan Kadavul heroine Pooja for Eriyum Thanal.

The director is to conduct a test shoot on Pooja and is expected to officially announce her as the heroine in the film.

The film also star Vedhika as a female lead with Atharva as the hero.

Music for Eriyum Thanal is being scored by GV Prakash. The film is based on a Malayalam novel, say sources.

The producer further expressed his excitement towards the amazing response that Ambuli has been receiving since day one of release. He further added that Ambuli's success has encouraged him to produce the film's sequel too.

Ambuli 3D, the first ever stereoscopic Tamil 3D film has been received very well with more positive reviews. The film that ended with a open climax for a possible sequel is now about to be materialized and the same producer of KTVR Creative Reels will produce this venture too.

While in Ambuli the directors Hareesh Narayan and Hari Shankar had only used the technical expertise to reach the public, in the second they are planning to rope in some top stars. While the first part was set in a village, the sequel will be set in a city.

The directors said that they will announce the lead star very soon.

The stunts for the film has been choreographed by Gareth Milne, the stunt co-ordinator of 'Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer' and 'National Treasure: Book of Secrets' . Tezz was earlier titled 'Bullet Train'.

The first look of Hate Story promises a steamy journey ahead.

A mystery girl with her bare back and the titillating setting of a gun and a tattoo - the poster of Vikram Bhatt's Hate Story is bold, daring and different.

The identity of the girl is being kept under wraps.

The movie, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, features Nikhil Dwivedi, Paoli Dam and Gulshan Devaiya.

Bengali actress Paoli Dam is known to have done one of the boldest scenes in Bengali cinema in Chatrak. But it is uncertain if the girl in the picture is her.

Actress Lakshmi Rai has come a long way after her debut in 2005 with the Tamil film Karka Kasadara. She is indeed considered as one of the actors who are ready to bare. Sizzling as usual, "What is wrong in wearing a bikini?," she asks stating "If you have a good body, you might as well want to flaunt it!”

Fresh with the success of Kanchana, Lakshmi Rai is ready to entertain the audience with her latest film Adhinayakudu starring Telugu Superstar Balakrishna in the lead.

Lakshmi Rai, about her film with the Telugu superstar, has shared her excitement of being part of the prestigious project directed by Parachuri Murali.

Talking about the experience of working with Balakrishna, Lakshmi Rai has praised the actor to heavens for his simplicity and down-to-earth attitude. Despite being a star, he never shows his tantrums and behaves like a gentleman on the sets, claims the actress.

Lakshmi Rai further adds that she has a good role in Adhinayakudu. Parachuri Murali has written a wonderful script, which has scope for every actor in the film.

Lakshmi Rai hopes that the mega-budget film Adhinayakudu also featuring Jayasudha, Sukanya, Saloni, Kota Srinivasa Rao and others in the cast manages to impress the audience as expected.

Karthi has signed up a project with Jayam Raja.

Following the huge success of Velayutham, Director Jeyam Raja is working on a family subject and has roped in Karthi for the lead role. It is not immediately known if the film is a remake, as Jayam Raja is known for handing remakes well.

Karthi, who is currently busy with Alex Pandian is awaiting release of Saguni this April. He is expected to join the sets of Jeyam Raja's upcoming film soon after his prior commitments are over.

Sources say that Priyamani has been roped in to play Riteish Deshmukh’s leading lady in a Hindi film.

After Mani Ratnam's Raavan, Priyamani has been looking for a good opportunity to make a mark in Bollywood and the actor seems to have found a good opportunity in a script narrated by Chandrakant Singh, says sources close to her.

Priyamani currently has a couple of Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada projects on hands and will move over to this Hindi flick as soon as her presence is required there.

After Renigunta, Sanjana Singh opted to perform for item numbers and make cameos in few films like Ko, Veyilodu Vilayadu and Mayanginen Thayanginen based on the request of some friends in the industry.

Sanjana, however says that she is in no hurry to accept offers as she is looking for good roles that requires award-winning performance.

The actor mentioned of her opportunity to play the female lead again in a film titled Yarukku Theriyum directed by Ganesan Kamaraj and of another untitled film to be directed by Athiyaman.

Sanjana is expecting a break through C.S Amudhan’s Rendavathu Padam (2nd film), an upcoming Tamil film written and directed by C. S. Amudhan that has her playing a pivotal role.

Following the success of the trendsetter Tamizhpadam, 'Rendavathu Padam' stars Vimal, Aravind Akash, Richard and Santhanam along with Vijayalakshmi. The film is currently in its filming stage and scheduled for a mid-2012 release.

Director Ahmed has said that Trisha did not walk out of the film that he is to direct with Jiiva in the lead.

The director has said that Trisha liked the role very much and has agreed to join the project only after completing her Telugu film Dammu and Tamil film Samaran.

Ahmed said that though the actress has not signed the dotted lines yet, he is expecting her to do it in the near future. He added that shooting of this yet-to-be-named will begin in May 2012 and by the time he would have completed the pre-production work.

Trisha has been camping in Pollachi for the past week shooting of her Telugu flick Dammu with Jr NTR in the lead.

"The heat in Pollachi is so unbearable and its extremely difficult to maintain my complexion and skin care has become the need of the hour," said Trisha ruing of requiring re-takes unable to beat the heat of the scorching sun.

It may be mentioned here that Trisha flew down from Thailand where her Tamil project 'Samaran' with Vishal was being shot to Pollachi joining the crew of Dammu.

With the ongoing strike, shooting schedules of many upcoming movies are being held outside Tamil Nadu.

The shooting of A.L Vijay's Thandavam starring Chiyam Vikram and Anushka is currently carried out with a few flashback scenes and songs being shot in and around Delhi.

Recently, the song 'Oru Paadhi Kanavu Neeyadi' was shot with Vikram romancing Anushka Shetty. It is worth mentioning her that these actors are reuniting with UTV motion pictures and Director A.L Vijay following the success of Deiva Thirumagal.

The crew of the film along with Amy Jackson of Madarasapattinam fame will fly to US to shoot for other portions of the film once the schedule at Delhi is wrapped.

Katrina Kaif was the initial choice to play Rajinikanth’s pair in Kochadaiyaan.

The film’s director Soundarya had said that she was in talks with Katrina Kaif to get her onboard. Eventually, the offer fell on the hands of Deepika Padukone.

Talking about missing the opportunity to share the screen space with Rajinikanth, Katrina said that she has agreed to star in a film alongside Shah Rukh Khan and had given a 10-month call sheet for this film. Therefore, she was not in a position to allot the call sheet that Soundarya had asked.

While Deepika Padukone has made it clear that she will not be a part of Race II as the producer has wasted her call sheet last year, producer Ramesh Taurani is set on having none other than Deepika playing the female lead.

As a result of this, Ramesh had filed a complaint at the actors’ association in Mumbai.

Replying to the complaint, Deepika said that her dates have been wasted by the producer several times before and she has no intention of starring in Race II.

The actress, however, maintained that she has due respects for the producers but cant do anything about the crisis now.

Kamal Haasan is planning to revive the mega budget project Marudhanayagam.

Kamal had earlier began the film with much fanfare in the year 1997 but after a few days of shoot, it had to be shelved due to various reasons.

Some said that Marudhanayagam is not commercially viable and that was the major reason for the project put in the backburner. Now, the situation is much better and Kamal is looking forward to revive the project.

Kamal Haasan is reported to have said that there is a particular role in the film which would be very apt for his dear friend Rajinikanth. He is looking to rope in the Superstar and if he does, Marudhanayagam cannot get any bigger ..

There is a buzz that a popular director is trying to get Silambarasan and Nayantara onboard for his next.

Nayantara has made it clear that she is looking to revive her acting career and has already signed Vishnuvardhan's project alongside Ajith and Arya.

A popular director in Kollywood is said to be in talks with Nayantara for a film that is to have Silambarasan as her lead pair.

It may be mentioned here that the two had fought bitterly during the making of Vallavan and vowed never to share the screen space again.

Sources close to the actor say that Nayantara is now keen on getting good offers in Tamil films and is expected to patch up and pair with STR if the role convinces her.

Well, there are no permanent friends or enemies in the film industry.

Asin recently said that she would love to work with Shah Rukh Khan as she has already worked with the other two Khans in Bollywood -Aamir and Salman.

It looks like Asin's wish to act with the King Khan is now about to come true as she is all set to sign on the dotted line for a film with Shahrukh Khan himself.

The film will be based on the book - Two States: The Story of My Marriage by Chetan Bhagat.

Sajid Nadiadwala would be producing this venture with Vishal Bharadwaj wielding the megaphone to direct this film.

In the book, the female protagonist is a Tamilian and Asin's Southern roots make her an apt choice. Besides she is very comfortable with the producer having worked with him earlier in the sequel of Houseful.

After Ajith, it's Suriya who joins hands with Venkat Prabhu.

According to industry sources, Suriya and Venkat Prabhu will be working on a bilingual multistarrer movie to be produced in both Tamil and Telugu.

Sources reveal that there will be an ensemble star cast including the Telugu star Ravi Teja in the movie with Tapsee as his love interest.

Sonam Kapoor will be making her Tamil debut opposite Suriya.

Suriya has given a go ahead for the script and Venkat Prabhu has started pre-production work for the movie, the same sources aver.

It is also learnt that Venkat Prabhu will start scouting for locations and finalize other cast members and technicians for the movie soon.

Gautham Menon has released the promo trailer of Nee Thaane En Pon Vasantham. The trailer, which runs for about one minute, has the Ilayaraja number from Ninaivellam Nithya which begins with the lyrics Nee Thaane En Pon Vasantham…

Interestingly, the maestro has been signed up to score the music for this film and being a soft romantic flick, the king of melodies is expected to spin magic with his music baton. Nee Thaane En Pon Vasantham stars Jiiva and Samantha in the lead roles and the film is being made in Telugu and Hindi as well with Samantha being the leading lady in all the three versions.

Gautham Menon's Ek Deewana Tha has turned out as something very unique because the director has revealed that the film will be released with two very different climaxes.

It may be recalled that Gautham Menon's Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya and Ye Maaya Chesave, the original Tamil and Telugu versions respectively had two different endings.

In VTV, STR and Trisha part ways whereas in the Telugu version the lovers Naga Chaitanya and Samantha are united. Since both were very successful, it was wondered what the ending could be for its Hindi version.

Gautham has decided to go with a popular version and a director's cut which will be played in elite screens. Theatre listings will reveal which ending will be played and the ticket - buying audience can choose accordingly.

Looks like Upendra is headed for a make-over. If his actress-wife Priyanka has her way, Uppi will soon be seen in a new avatar in her first directorial.

"People often ask me how Uppi is as a person. Through my film, which will revolve around life and relationships, I intend to bring out his other side. He is often cast as the rough and tough guy but I want to show him as a romantic. Uppi seems to be impressed with the characterization and the story. But he will take a call only after I give him the final reading," she says.

Whether Uppi will act or not, his involvement is a given at every stage. "I am not all that much for escapist cinema and want to make one that is realistic and relatable. As I am trying to do something new, Uppi's inputs will be required at every stage. He will be helping me with the translation of the script from English to Kannada and the dialogues of course," she adds.

More than anything he is a great source of moral support she feels. "He was the one who gave me the confidence to direct. He felt only that way would the film shape up the way I would have conceptualized it while writing it."

Priyanka will also be turning producer with this film. Will she multi task by acting in it as well? "Not this time. And somehow I have a feeling that direction will give me greater satisfaction."

The film is likely to go on floors in April. "As my children have their summer break around that time, I can concentrate on the film. If all goes well we should start filming in April with Uppi in the lead," concludes a hopeful Priyanka.

"If we are taking about female population, now we know that we have a female hero here with us who has taken over. I think with all the Khans and the Kapoors, we have Vidya Balan now," Shekhar, of the Vishal-Shekhar duo, said at the music launch of their latest film 'Kahaani'.

After being down and out for a while, Vidya resurfaced and showed her Versatility with 'Ishqiya', 'Paa', 'No One Killed Jessica' and her masterstroke came in the form of 'The Dirty Picture'. The film was not only a commercial success, it also received all-round acclaim.

Right now Vidya is on a winning spree with most popular best actress awards falling in her kitty.

The duo had composed the music for 'The Dirty Picture' and Shekhar says they have tried to match the audiences' expectations with 'Kahaani', which is coming out March 9, as well.

" 'Kahaani' is really very special for us. Whenever people talk about this combination (me and Vishal), they always expect something really mad, crazy and beautiful and this has happened again with 'Kahaani'," said Shekhar.

They are also busy composing for 'Arjun - The Warrior Prince', 'Student of the Year' and 'Shanghai'.

Nila aka Meera Chopra who made her acting debut in the film industry with S.J.Surya’s ‘Anbe Aaruyire’ in the year 2007 bid farewell to the film industry sometime ago, with the perception of not fitting well in the film industry.

The actor who has earlier acted in many films in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages and has now decided to make a comeback by taking the Bollywood route.

On asking about this, Meera said that, “I’m gearing up for 'Bhaiyaji Superhit' with Sunny Deol, Arshad Warsi & Tusshar Kapoor and 'Hera Pheri 4' in Bollywood that is to go on floors later this year. I also have a Telugu film in hand!”

Nila also adds that, “I’m not ecstatic about my B-Town innings. It’s just another job. The only difference is that I will be working in a language I’m familiar with. In recent times, a number of actors from the south have made their Bollywood debuts, but I’m not interested in any competition of sorts. The industry is big and there is space for everyone!”

Ambuli, for the first time in the history of Indian cinema, has released a motion poster. The specialty of this 3D flick is that viewers do not need to go to 3D theatres to watch the film as the 3D effect can be enjoyed in all theatres.

Vanessa Taylor, who is known for her work in films like Harry Potter, has worked in Ambuli as a DI Colorist.

Ambuli has been directed by Hari Shankar and Hareesh Narayan. It stars Parthiban in a pivotal role.

Actress Nithya Menen seen in films like Nootrenbathu and Veppam is in trouble as she may be banned from Malayalam films.

Two of Nithya's Malayalam films 'Bachelor Party' and 'Ustad Hotel' have been directly affected.

Apparently the Producers Council slapped the ban on Nithya Menen when she refused to meet some producers who had dropped in to discuss a project with her while shooting for another Malayalam film 'Tatsamayam Oru Penkutty'.

However, the Actors Association and the exhibitors have stood by her saying that her behavior and conduct have been above reproach. They added that actors and films should not be punished over petty issues.

Looks like things are heating up in Kerala over this ban.

Salman Khan and Shriya get along splendidly over their shared passion for fitness.

The Bollywood superstar is very impressed with Shriya's talent after Gali Gali Mein Chor Hai and has been promoting her in a big way.

It may be remembered that Salman also promoted Katrina Kaif and as a result she is one of the leading heroines in Bollywood today.

Sonakshi Sinha is also a Salman discovery and her career is also rocking these days.

Will Shriya also follow suit? Let's wait and watch!

Esha Deol got engaged to businessman Bharat Takhtani at a very private ceremony at Hema Malini’s bungalow in Mumbai. Only very close family and friends were invited to this engagement ceremony. Notable among those who attended this event was Aishwarya Dhanush.

Esha is the daughter of Bollywood star couple Dharmendra and Hema Malini. Her debut film was Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe for which she won the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award. She has Ghost Ghost Na Raha, Raaz 3 and Kaanch - The Broken Glass in her kitty right now.

Speaking about the engagement, Hema said that it went off well and she finds her future son-in-law a very handsome guy. She added that the wedding date has not been finalized yet and once this is done she would make an announcement.

Kajal Aggarwal it seems has decided to focus on her Southern language films now we hear.

The actress was offered a new Hindi film by Maneesh Sharma, the director of Ladies vs Ricky Bahl but the actress turned him down as she is busy in Tamil and Telugu films and is working with some of the biggest names in the business.

The actress earlier received some bad press where she was criticized for not being grateful to the Southern Film fraternity for giving her a break in her career and bringing her fame and fortune by calling herself a Bollywood actress and not a South Indian one.

Kajal made a strong return by signing Maatran with Suriya and Thuppaki with Vijay and also delivering a super hit in Telugu with Business man with Mahesh Babu.

Ulaga Nayakan Kamal Haasan has recently bought a new Range Rover Evoque. The white colour Range Rover is the talk of the town.

The actor is known for his penchant for SUV’s and the brand new Range Rover Evoque is a new addition to his collection of cars.

Prior to this he was using a white colour Prado.

In March last year Kamal Haasan's Audi A8 L was in the news after he purchased the flagship model sedan introduced into the Indian market by the German car maker.

It seems there’s no limit to the creative talent of Prabhu Deva and he never gets bored of doing several things at a time.

The multi-talented choreographer-turned-actor-turned director is all set to release his music album and prove his mettle.

Prabhu Deva has been working on his album titled ‘Boruda’ for quite some months.

According to sources, the launch of the album will take place soon.

Interestingly, Prabhu Deva has shaken his leg to some of the tunes in the album. So this album is going to be a double treat!

Although she is shuttling between Bollywood and regional movies, Asin seems to be landing plump roles in Tamil as well.

After her last year hit Kavalan, if rumors are to be believed, Asin might be in the Shankar directed Thalaivan Irukkiran. Speculations are abuzz in the internet that she will play Kamal’s lead in Thalaivan Irukkiran.

It’s also reported that Telugu actor Prabhas, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and Hollywood star Jackie Chan will also be part of the movie. Produced by Aascar Ravichandran, the movie is in its pre-production stage.

Suraaj has titled the Karthi starrer that he is directing right now as Alex Pandian, say sources.

The director did not announce the title of this project till date though the shooting commenced last September. But now, sources in the tinsel town say that he has decided to name the film Alex Pandian.

Apparently Alex Pandian is the name of the character that Karthi plays in the film and Suraaj has decided that it would be appropriate.

Anushka plays Karthi’s pair in this film.

Devi Sri Prasad will be scoring the music for Alex Pandian.

Whitney Houston, who found fame as one of Pop’s biggest voices has died.

Whitney who was 48 died Saturday afternoon on the eve of the Grammys and on the night of Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy gala, at which she performed last year.

Houston, a formidable force in R&B/pop known for her powerful multi-octave range and sweeping ballads in the 1980s and '90s, was beset in more recent years by reports of drug use, erratic behavior and a volatile marriage to R&B singer Bobby Brown.

The superstar singer and actress's publicist, Kristin Foster, broke the news of Houston's passing. She was found and pronounced dead at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Saturday afternoon; thus far, no cause of death has been revealed. In recent years, she struggled with drug abuse.

Her self-titled debut album, released in 1985, sold 25 million copies worldwide. In total, she released seven albums and three film soundtracks; a winner of six Grammys, Houston sold over 200 million albums and singles worldwide. She earned 30 Billboard Awards, 22 American Music Awards and two Emmy Awards.

Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor aren't the only ones making drunken mistakes... The only difference is, their mistake was onscreen.

But B-town's latest IT couple Prateik and Amy Jackson made a shocking confession while interviewed of their latest outing 'Ek Deewana Tha' and about their candid 'smooch' picture that had leaked online.

Prateik confessed, "It was New Year's Eve and we were having a lot of fun. It was almost like 'Group Love'." And before our jaws could drop, Amy quickly added, "We were celebrating and Goa makes you do things. We were high, and it was a mistake. We woke up realizing what we'd done and had a conversation about it. It was no big deal."

We love their honesty... while most B-town couples try their best to 'cover-up', here's a jodi that isn't afraid to tell

Katrina Kaif has been sexy but never the sensuous Yash Chopra heroine. And thus, she has decided to devote a major part of the year to her upcoming YRF project co-staring Shah Rukh Khan.

"I shot with Shah Rukh for five days before my Ek Tha tiger schedule in Cuba. We had never worked before. And I tend to be a bit reserved on the sets. Shah Rukh has shot several times with Yashji. This is my first. But I was made to feel at home from Day 1. Shah Rukh is very helpful. He is helping me understand my character better," said Katrina speaking about her experience on the sets.

Katrina, who has donned the quintessential chiffon saree a couple of times in her previous films, will be seen as the archetypal Yash Chopra seductress, the unattainable beauty in this one.

"The role requires Katrina to work on her body language. Shah Rukh, who has seen several heroines including Kajol, Juhi Chawla, Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta transform into Yashraj goddesses, is helping Kat with the same," informed a friend of the actress. In fact, Katrina, revealed the friend, wants this film to do for her what Chandni did for Sridevi.

Responding to the intense speculation about her southern projects, Katrina said, she is devoting all her time and attention to the film at the moment. "I can't take up any other assignment till this is over. I would be doing injustice to this film if I did. It is best that I surrender completely to this film. I can feel it will be special," added Katrina.
