"I have not done anything like that before, something that (Ayushmann) does really well. I am so glad that he is with me on stage. I know he is going to take care of all the times I slip-up while hosting the show," Chitrangada told reporters Wednesday at PVR Director's Cut in Ambience Mall Vasant Kunj here.

Though Ayushmann has anchored various shows, he is excited that he would be sharing the stage with the actress he has admired for long.

"Its a bit awkward moment when you meet a person you find extremely good-looking, you see that person right in front of you in real flesh and blood. She is an actress of all seasons," quipped Ayushmann, who is riding high on the success of his debut film "Vicky Donor".

Those performing at the fashion and musical night include Mika Singh, Neha Dhupia and music composer duo Vishal-Shekhar. Singers Usha Uthup, Hariharan and Leslie Lewis will celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema at the event.

The event will also have fashion shows by designers Varun Bahl, Suneet Verma and Masaba.

Varma added: "It's my 25th year in the world of fashion and it's a wonderful way to celebrate it with Bollywood."

Rowdy Rathore News Updates | Akshay Sonakshi

Rowdy Rathore Backend: The shooting of  Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha's "Rowdy Rathore" in Karnataka's temple town of Hampi was disrupted after activists said the minimum number of local dancers had not been used. 

The unit members of "Rowdy Rathore", directed by Prabhu Deva, had to beat a hasty retreat after a few hours of shooting Monday afternoon following objections by local activists.

A song sequence, featuring Akshay and Sonakshi, along with many dancers, was being shot in Hampi, about 400 km from here, where the mercury has shot up to over 40 degrees.

Despite the gruelling heat, shooting was in brisk progress when some local activists pointed out that the movie's production house, Sanjay Leela Bhansali Films, had not used a minimum of 30 percent of local dancers for shooting the song.

Another reason for stopping filming is that the unit had taken permission to shoot a song sequence from Tuesday to Friday, but had begun Monday itself, said activists.

Venkoba Naik, a local activist and freelance journalist, told IANS from Hampi that the entire film unit had no Kannada technicians and all of them, including the dancers, were brought from Mumbai.

It is stipulated that 30 percent of local artists had to be used for the song shoot in Karnataka.

Naik said he learnt that the archaeological department, looking after the famous Virupaksha Temple and nearby historical places, had given permission for song shoot only from Tuesday.

Senior production manager Champakadhama Babu from the Karnataka Film Workers' Federation said the "Rowdy Rathore" production unit has not used the services of a local production manager from the cine workers organisation.

Rowdy Rathore Frontend: Gorgeous Sonakshi Sinha is extensively promoting her upcoming movie Rowdy Rathore now-a-days. Sharing with you few pics of Sonakshi Sinha on the sets of Dance India Dance Little Masters Season 2 TV show which is currently being aired on Zee TV.

"I think this is the perfect comeback. What is better than the guy who wanted such a good action film, is not directing 'Rowdy Rathore'. Prabhu has action and more action. His mind is full of action and he choreographs action," he said Saturday, referring to the film's director Prabhu Deva.

"I was asked to stand in the jeep. Whatever has been told to me I will do. When I was sitting in the jeep I said many times that give me also the auto rickshaw to ride. Maybe the reason was that I don't even have a license to drive an auto. You have to follow the rules,"  Akshay Kumar told reporters.

Talking about the stress "Rowdy Rathore" has put on him, Akshay Kumar optimistically said: "Every actor is worried about his film. A little stress is always there. But if it doesn't work, the next film will come."

Dressed in a purple top and shocking pink jeans, Akshay looked more rowdy than ever.

"It's not only pink but yellow, red all are Rowdy. When I got these clothes for the first time, I was shocked but then I got used to it. A lot of people like to wear such clothes. This is just a character and I would love to play it," he said.

Talking about his "Dabangg" co-star, Akshay was full of praise for Sonakshi.

Zarine Khan hot in Housefull 2 | Wallpapers Photos

Actress Zarine Khan says she is trying to become a vegetarian, but finds it difficult to abstain from non-veg food. 

"I have been a non-vegetarian since birth, so it is not very easy. Hats off to vegetarian people... I am trying my level best to turn vegetarian," the 27-year-old told reporters Thursday at the launch of the Bhagwat Calender. 

The actress, who joined the industry two years ago with the 2010 release "Veer", got a lot of flak for her plump look. But she has since shed a lot of weight.

The actress featured in the recently released "Housefull 2". Although Zarine did not put enough light on her future projects, she thanked her fans for appreciating "Housefull 2" and making it a huge success. You like multi-starers?

Rowdy Rathore Music Review | Sajid-Wajid Songs

From the storehouse of upbeat music, Sajid-Wajid, comes another album in the form of Rowdy Rathore. Having doled out chartbusters for films such as Dabangg and Housefull 2, one would expect the musical duo to deliver yet another hit.

But though they have a lot to offer through the Rowdy Rathore soundtrack, it falls short of tall expectations.

The album kicks off with "Chinta ta ta", crooned by the man with the midas touch, Mika Singh, who has been giving hits after hits. The catchy phrase just lingers onto your mind even though you may not be hooked on to it after hearing it for the first time.
The track is not a runaway hit and it takes time to grow on you.

Next up is "Chammak Challo Chel Chabel", which marks the comeback of Kumar Sanu. With over 17,000 songs to his credit, Sanu has sung this duet with Shreya Goshal and their melodious blend, surprisingly takes you back to the romance of 1990s. It is an absolute delight to hear Sanu, who has returned to his forte of romantic numbers after six years.

Since the film is christened Rowdy Rathore, it would be unfair to not have a fitting song that justifies the title. "Aa re Pritam Pyaare" does that and it is said to be the 'rowdiest song of the year'. Custom-made for the voice of Mamta Sharma, your frown at the lyrics quickly metamorphoses into some foot-tapping.

Another song reminiscent of the past is "Tera ishq bada teekha". The number also takes you back to the 1990s. A duet by Javed Ali and Shreya Goshal, the song's male vocals eerily remind one of Sonu Nigam. It is just the perfect song for some nostalgia!

Next up on the playlist is is "Dhadang dhang dhang", sung by Wajid and Shreya Goshal. The beginning of this song is inadvertently similar to the beats of the hit song "Aaila Re Aaila Re", filmed on Sanjay Dutt and Shilpa Shetty in the film "Jung". "Dhadang..." is a conversational song, but doesn't elicit appreciation. The composition is quite average and lyrics are disappointingly mediocre. A big thumbs down for this one. 

It is followed by a lullaby that comes in the form of "Chandaniya" (Lori Lori) sung by Shreya Goshal. It is the lone soothing number in this over-the-top album. However, the strums of this song have close resemblance to A.R.Rahman's music in "Roja". An absolute delight to hear.

Last but not the least is the title track "Rowdy Mix", which opens with Akshay Kumar creating a statement with "Jo main bolta hun woh main karta hun, jo main nahin bolta woh main definitely karta hun". Sarosh Sami is good with the backing vocals but what makes you groove are the beats, which couple well with the rowdy style.

By and large, the album, despite the good songs, leaves a sense of discontentment. Having produced hit albums in the past, Sajid-Wajid definitely could have churned out something better.

Chitrangada Singh still struggling to get over 'Geeta Rao'

Actress Chitrangada Singh, whose performance in her debut film "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi" was acclaimed by critics and audience alike, says even after nine years she is struggling to get over her character of Geeta Rao.

"I don't know if I have still managed to make people forget Geeta Rao and remember another character that I have played," she told reporters here Monday at the launch of the Indian issue of Vogue magazine. 

"...I am still kind of struggling to get over it and make people remember me by something else that I have played. I think it's still the most special one," added the actress who has also featured in "Sorry Bhai", "Yeh Saali Zindagi" and "Desi Boyz".

Chitrangada, who took a break after her first film to start a family with golfer-husband Jyoti Randhawa, says that being an actress was never her ambition.

"I started with something like that and I didn't plan my Bollywood career. I did not want to be an actress, never thought I would be here. It came my way and it just went off really well," said the 35-year-old. 

Talking about her upcoming films, she said: "My next release is 'I, Me Aur Main' which has John (Abraham) and Parachi (Desai) with me in the film. It is about a woman who kind of realises the man is not quite committed to the relationship and what does she do about it."

"My second film is actually a very strange love story. It is opposite Arjun Rampal and directed by Sudhir Mishra. It is set in a sexual harassment case but it's about two people who have been in love but are now stuck in this case and what happens to them and their life."

Mishra has already praised the chemistry between Arjun and Chitrangada in his yet to be titled film.

Jannat 2 Movie Review | Emraan Hashmi Esha Gupta

Everyone knows that Jannat 2 is based on ‘arms trafficking’ but film’s opening credits reveal that you can trade guns for a cause, which according to our hero Sonu Dilli is - if everyone in the world owns a gun, everyone will be equal and the world will be a happy place!

There begins Jannat 2, another Vishesh Film’s prototype that’s engaging in a few parts but predictable in many. Jannat 2 is the sequel to Jannat (2008) with precisely no similarities with the prequel except the director and the leading man, but is that logic good enough to market a film as a sequel or just a way to cash upon prequel’s success. But was Jannat a hit?

The story of Jannat 2 bears traces of Nicolas Cage’s Lord of War, but is totally desi, as it’s based in Delhi with characters influenced by jaats.  

Musically, Pritam’s songs are already topping charts. Background score is impressive. The dialogue-baazi is crude but goes with the theme of the film.

Jannat 2 is an average story, remarkable performance and a super hot heroine, you can watch Jannat 2! Else, wait for the DVD!

Read complete Jannat 2 movie review here.

What's your opinion about Jannat 2 - Will it raise eye-brows? OR Will it be lapped up by curious audiences? Mention via@comments.

Before leaving would like to know your thoughts about the many stars you would give to Emraan Hashmi's Jannat 2? Does Jannat 2 live up to your expectations?
