Actors tripping on sets is a sign of good luck for KJo

Stars tripping on film sets are a common occurrence in B-Town. It is a source of both amusement (to see how the mighty can collapse) and horror (when there is no one to catch the falling star in the nick of time).

For Karan Johar, however, it is a sign of good luck. He believes that if one of his actors trips and falls during the making of the film, then it will be a hit at the box-office. Those in the know say that deep within his heart he hopes (and perhaps silently prays) that one of his stars accidentally trips -- perhaps in the maze of wires criss-crossing the sets or on one of the props. Because once the actor falls, the producer-director is convinced that his film will be a winner!


Ken Ghosh admits there were differences with Shahid

Director Ken Ghosh admits he had arguments with Shahid Kapoor on the sets of his forthcoming film "Chance Pe Dance". He said it had to do with the actor's saturated schedules.

"For the first time in his career, Shahid was doing three films at the same time - 'Kaminey', 'Dil Bole Hadippa' and my film 'Chance Pe Dance'. Naturally, there was a conflict of interest," Ghosh said.

"I'd ask for three days. He would have only one day to spare. I'd naturally be upset. Then understandably, Shahid wanted time off. He couldn't be seen on my set straight after shooting for one of the other two films. This naturally led to heated arguments."


Ranbir fails to charm audiences with 'Rocket Singh'

Ranbir Kapoor's attempts to highlight a salesman's life through his latest outing "Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year" have gone awry, as the film has fallen flat at the box office.

Produced and distributed by Yash Raj Films (YRF), the film has been directed by Shimit Amin and written by Jaideep Sahni of "Chak De! India" fame.

Made at a shoe-string budget of around Rs.5 crore, "Rocket Singh...", however, couldn't bring in anticipated footfalls, say experts.


It's official, Ranbir and Katrina are in love

Exchange of text messages and gifts, constant phone calls and Kaif's visits to the Kapoor house...

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have taken their so-called friendship to the next level. The two bonded instantly when they first met on the sets of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani last year. And later on the sets of Prakash Jha's Rajneeti.

When their closeness was reported last year, they were both in relationships and they restrained themselves. But now that they are both single, they are rediscovering each other without looking over their shoulders and minus any guilt. Close friends reveal that they are totally into each other and find it extremely hard to keep their growing fondness for each other under wraps.


Shruti Hassan will perform for the first time at an awards event

After her thanda debut flick Luck, Shruti Haasan disappeared from the B-Town scene. The singer-actress is now back and will be performing at a films awards gala for the first time.

Kamal Haasan's daughter gets jiggy for the Sabsey Favourite Kaun awards at a suburban hotel tonight.
While rehearsing for the Star Gold event she says, "I have performed as a singer in front of a live audience. But dancing is something new. I don't want to rate myself on how well I can do it but I try and improve with every step."
