News of the day - Ranbir deaf and mute?

Ranbir Kapoor exercised his vocal chords for Anjaana Anjaani. Music directors Vishal-Shekhar have been deliriously happy with Ranbir's singing abilities and plan to rope in Priyanka Chopra to playback in the film as well. Meanwhile, we have heard that Ranbir is playing a deaf and mute character in the yet untitled project helmed by Anurag Basu.
OUR TAKE - why Ranbir? Why the DVD xeroxing Anurag Basu?

Akshay-Suniel-Paresh out of Hera Pheri 4
This may come as a shocker but sources reveal that director Anees Bazmee has decided to do away with the original cast of Hera Pheri. Instead of Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal of the original Priyadarshan venture, the film will now have Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar anchoring the roles.
OUR TAKE - maybe it will not be so stale anymore?

Rahman and I share a silence, an ehsaas
So Sonu deliberately ‘hiked’ his price to distance himself. “Instead of doing 50 songs a month I decided to do just two songs. The rest of the time I wanted to spend in silence and in seeking who I am,” he says adding, “Music composers today have understood that money lies in events. So they have either started singing songs themselves or giving songs to
those who will perform in their shows. The entire game has changed. Composers come to me only for special songs, barring a few like Sajid-Wajid, Shantanu Moitra and A R Rahman with whom I have worked consistently.” Interestingly, Sonu and Rahman, both dubbed as soul-searchers, are not really comrades in conversation. “We share a silence of sorts. He knows that I know what he knows. He is quite like me — detached from things. We meet each other cordially, we do the song and I leave. We don’t connect via emails or talk on the phone. I think it’s good this way. Rahman and I just share an ehsaas (feeling),” Sonu decodes the equation.
OUR TAKE - stop trying to be a rock star Sonu, and just sing!!
