When asked about the rumour of Anushka not playing the lead in his next with Ajith, Siva said that there are few problems with Anushka's dates, but he is sure that it can be sorted out.

The film will go on floor after Ajith completes his shoot for the Vishnuvardhan project.

One of the reasons for the buzz around the film is that S.J Suryah himself is composing the music for the film following the advice of A.R Rahman, who told Suryah that he had what it took to be a music composer. So after Isai is wrapped up, Suryah will try to prove his versatility with Puli.

"The script was revised and my character had no scope to perform than merely be a glam doll. Moreover a second heroine had also been included," said Karthika about opting out of MGR.

"I would work with Sundar C in the future if he came up with something interesting," she added.

Sundar C's MGR has been confirmed to be a two - heroine project and the other heroine's part is likely to go to Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar who is making her debut with Poda Podi or a newcomer.

'Daruvu,' a Ravi Teja starrer also directed by Siva is an out and out masala entertainer and falls in the socio-fantasy genre in the lines of Superstar Rajinikanth's yesteryear film 'Athisaya Piravi (1990)'.

Siva's last Tamil outing 'Siruthai' with Karthi in the lead was also a remake of Ravi Teja's 'Vikramakoodu' that went on to become one of the biggest hits of the year.

Sonakshi Sinha's act in a red saree in the song 'Chammak challo chail chabeeli' from Rowdy Rathore has forced people to draw comparisons with Kareena Kapoor's Chammak challo in RA.One. However, the actor brushes it off as mere co-incidence and insists the two not be compared.

"I am not just Chammak Challo, I am also Chail Chabeeli. I would like to say that Ra. One had not released when we had shot for this song and we had not seen that Chammak Challo in a red saree. It's just a co-incidence," said the 24-year-old belle in an interview.

Sonakshi insists that the two songs are completely different.

"Both the songs are different, it was westernised but our song is full of Indian melody. So you should not compare the two," said Sonakshi, who made her Bollywood debut with Dabangg.

Having said that, 'Chamak Challo' Bebo had agreed to sizzle for a hot item number in ‘Rowdy Rathore’ as a friendly gesture for producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali and co-producer Shabinaa Khan.

The diva is reported to have raised the oomph wearing a glamorous black outfit to dance on the song.

Director Prem created buzz when he roped in Yana Gupta to sizzle for an item number in the Kannada film 'Jogi' starring Shivarajkumar. The director met his fans expectations later getting Mallika Sherawat to shake her hot body in 'Preethi Yeke Bhoomi Melide'.
The filmmaker is now back in news. According to sources, Prem is all set to bring in Sunny Leone for a special number in his forthcoming film 'Prem Adda' that is touted to be the Kannada remake of the Tamil hit 'Subramaniapuram'.

Rumour mongers were agog with news that Sunny might be seen in an item number in the film. But a confirmation from Prem suggested that Sunny will indeed be present in the film.

"Apart from Sunny, we had a couple of options. But now that the news about Sunny has broken out, it is better to finalize her in the film. We have already contacted her and have asked for her dates. She has responded positively and has confirmed to be a part of the item song. Now that she is busy acting with 'Jism 2', we will get her dates once she finishes off her assignments" said Prem.

With this item number, Sunny Leone will mark her debut in Sandalwood.

It's going to be Love Aaj Kal again for Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in their latest offering, Cocktail, directed by Homi Adajania.

The film, which is a story of three friends, also stars model Diana Penty. Homi had made his directorial debut with Being Cyrus, starring Saif and Dimple Kapadia.

Here's a look at the film's first trailer:

British model Scarlett Mellish Wilson, who has done item number Imported Kamariya in the forthcoming film Shanghai, says she relates the Hindi film industry to Aishwarya Rai.

Scarlett is also a big fan of Aamir Khan.

"I like Aamir Khan, I have seen a few of his movies. I saw Taare Zameen Par and I loved that. There's another movie I watched, I can't remember the name," she said adding that she also "loved other Hindi films like Housefull and Dostana."

The actor started with agreeing that he is a great lover of Ajith films.

“Ajith is a thorough professional and has no ego that comes with the star status. He is very kind, humane and interacts very well treating everyone from co-stars to a bottom level technician in the sets equally,” said Arya who was all praises for Ajith.

"Every word that Ajith speaks will be filled with concern and affection. When I wished Ajith on his birthday, Ajith excitedly said that we will rock together in Vishnuvardhan's film."

 “Vishnu is my very good friend. I wouldn’t mind even being a junior artiste if he asks me to be,” said Arya about director Vishnuvardhan, whom Arya worked with for 'Sarvam'.

Lakshmi Rai is very excited about her role in A.L Vijay's 'Thaandavam' which has Vikram, Anushka and Amy Jackson in the lead roles.

Lets await to see what 'Thaandavam' can do to the luscious belle and her blooming career.

The sizzling queen of item girls who is all set to turn a full fledged actor said that she will be better than the National Award winning actress Vidya Balan.

"The film is based on the life of an item girl and it is only befitting that I take on the role as I am the original item girl of Bollywood. I admire Vidya a lot. I think she is a great actress and she did a great job in the film. But now it is my turn and I will do a better ooh lala than her. After this film I am hoping that everyone will chant only my name," said Rakhi Sawant, the 33 year old sex siren.

"Although I'm best known for my bold image, I'm very nervous and thrilled about filming intimate kissing and love making scenes that I've never done before. I have only done item songs and done small parts in films."

This will be the very first time that Rakhi Sawant would be seen performing in a full fledged film with dialogues, song and dance besides numerous item songs and TV shows. 

"I have already done an item song in Shatabdi's film 'Om Shanti'. I am learning Bengali because I want to dub for myself. I have asked the director to give me the full Bengali script written in Hindi," boasted the item girl turning actor who is all set to get more tongues wagging than the original.

Asin remains the only actress from the South to have made a successful transition to Hindi films in recent times, having tasted success within just three years of being in the Hindi film industry.

Three out of the four films she's done are in the list of the top 10 highest grossers of all time. " Ghajini", "Ready" and "Housefull 2" have all crossed the `100 crore (net collections) mark.

Asin has an enviable career success ratio in B-town when compared to contemporaries in the `100-crore list who have been in the industry for a decade or more.

Asin's next film is Rohit Shetty's "Bol Bachchan".

 Says the actress, "I am thrilled to have three films in the coveted 100-crore list. It is a function of luck, working with good people, growth in Bollywood and to some extent, my picking fun and emotional stories, which tend to do well. For me, it is not about the crores in collections, but entertaining such a big number of people. If the audience is happy, the rest follows. Collections are one factor, but more than anything, I'd like to work in films I'm passionate about. I love the new generation of filmmakers and hope I get to work with them."

She has also kept a relatively low profile compared to her peers. "I have to admit, my PR and networking skills suck!" she says, "I may get all self-righteous about it, but the fact is that PR matters. I come from the South, where self-marketing isn't naturally in the culture, so I've been deficient in that area. The good thing about downplaying myself is that when achievements come, people are positively surprised. I believe my work should do the talking."

Asin says her family is her support system. "It may sound like a cliche," she says, "but my family defines who I am and is my strongest support base. My parents have given me the right amount of independence to pursue my dreams, but at the same time, brought me up well and kept me grounded. There are absolutely no starry tantrums allowed at home! And that is why I don't have them on the sets." What about Mr Right? "Ah! Good men and good scripts - two things I'm looking for," she smiles, "So far, I've been lucky with the scripts. It's perhaps time to focus on finding the man."

Beside proving her talent as an actor, Kangana Ranaut is making a mark in the fashion world too.

The actor has set a trend with the different looks and designer clothes she adorns at events and functions. In fact, young gals are aping her style and religiously follow her fashion sense in trendy and film magazines.

Director Milan Luthria, who worked with Kangana in 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai' described her as someone versatile and creative.

"Kangana looks radically different with each look she tries yet looks stunning in all. In addition, she's extremely well prepared and knowledgeable about fashion. Plus she has a unique sex appeal that has given her a different identity altogether. Last but not the least, Kangana has a very fine bone structure making her face a photographer's delight," said the director laughingly adding "My nickname for Kangana is chameleon."

Talking about 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai', "I distinctly remember her walking into my office with a complete bound folder of each and every look she planned to have in the film. And she was spot-on. What's more, Kangana is deceptively professional. She'll party hard with all the crew but will be the first to report on set," recalled Luthria.

Tena Desae and her prior films - 'Yeh Faasle' and 'Sahi Dhande Galat Bande'in Hindi - may have gone unnoticed, but her third film was not just noticed but also attracted the international attention being directed by John Madden, whose previous work includes Oscar Winner 'Shakespeare in Love.

John Madden's 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' features an ensemble cast, with Judi Dench, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Bill Nighy, Ronald Pickup, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson and Penelope Wilton as a group of British retirees staying in an ancient retirement hotel in India run by Sonny played by Dev Patel.

Tena Desae, the pretty Indian model turned actor adds the Indian flavor to the film as the beautiful Sunaina, with Whom Sonny is madly in Love with..

Fresh from the positive reviews that the film has generated, Tena is ecstatic as she says, "I was so edgy prior to the release, because this film was going to be seen all over the world. While I had experienced the excitement of working with an ensemble cast, seeing myself on the big screen was going to be a totally different affair! And I must say, the initial reactions have really made me happy."

As the young actress is excited with her debut international film, ask her how she's dealing with comparisons being made to Freida Pinto and she says, "We both may have started the same way, but obviously we are different individuals and will chart our film journeys in our own ways. Honestly speaking, the comparisons with Freida don't really rattle me. I was almost prepared that this will happen!"

And now that Tena will be flooded with film offers, does it mean bye-bye to modeling?

"Why should I have to say bye to one thing to do another? I can do lots of things at one time and as much as I love to do films, I'd love to do ads as well!," said the gorgeous belle of her desire to continue modelling while she acts.

'Kalakalappu', a comedy caper directed by Sundar C with Vimal, Shiva, Santhanam, Anjali and Oviya in lead roles is running packed houses and those who have seen the flick would have also noticed the glamour quotient in the film besides laughing their f#cking a$$es out.

"I did not force Anjali and Oviya to wear glamorous costumes in Kalakalappu. I just explained them the demands of the script and the thorough professionals understood it," said Sundar C about the two leading ladies who were seen with an extra dosage of glamour.

Initially titled 'Masala Cafe', the film was rechristened as 'Kalakalappu' before its release worldwide. Following the stupendous response, the producers of the film have decided to go ahead with a sequel with exactly the same team.

Sundar C is currently busy filming Madha Gadha Raja with Vishal and Karthika and would turn his attention to the Kalalalappu II once this project is wrapped up.

Shooting for Kalakalappu 2 is scheduled to begin in October and Sundar C is expected to return with exactly the same team with Vimal, Shiva, Santhanam, Anjali and Oviya reprising their roles.
