Tabu is bad, but in a way it is good!

16 June 2015 5:26 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Hindi cinema boasts of some iconic villains like Kanhaiyalal, Ajit, Amjad Khan, Amrish Puri Prem Chopra, Ranjeet, Danny, Shakti Kapoor and Gulshan Grover, to name a few, but the trend changed somewhat in the 70s-80s, where some of the top stars essayed characters having shades of grey. In case of ladies, there were the occasional Shashi Kalas and Lalita Pawars, but not many.

However, it was Urmila with Kaun, Kajol in Gupt, Priyanka via Aitraaz and Aishwarya in Khakee, who shocked and awed with brilliant negative portrayals. And one was forced to sit and admire such beautiful leading ladies going chillingly grey with a vengeance. But now one of the best actress of recent times Tabu has made it a habit.

Yes, the highly versatile Tabu made one jump out of the seat in Sunny Deol's Jaal -The Trap. Recently she wowed the audience with another stellar performance »

Here's why Drishyam is a winner for Ajay Devgn

5 June 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

The trailer of Ajay Devgn and Tabu starrer Drishyam has just been unleashed and here is one word to describe the entire feel of the film - Gripping! The well cut first trailer has already impressed us and it seems Drishyam will be a profitable venture for all. Well, there are reasons enough that prove Ajay Devgn truly has a winner in hands with Drishyam. Take a look:

Ajay Devgn as 'common man':After displaying his snazzy and stylish side in last few flicks, Ajay steps slips into the character of 'common man'. He plays an 'aam siddha saadha aadmi', a 4th grade dropout cable operator, who leads a happy life with his family until struck by some unforeseen events. It's a refreshing change to see Ajay as common man on-screen and the audience would well connect with him.

Abhishek Kapoor's next Fitoor, has been in the news since the film commenced shooting earlier this year. However now we hear that the cast of the film has undergone a major change. In fact we hear that Rekha, who was to play the character of Miss Havisham in Kapoor's adaptation of Charles Dicken's novel Great Expectations, has walked out of the film.

Apparently, Rekha chose to walk out of the film since she was unhappy with the rushes of the film shown to her. When she approached the production house regarding her decision, the makers of the film went into tizzy. However, the day was saved when the Haider actress, Tabu accepted to play the role. The problem however now is that Rekha's sequences will have to be reshot with Tabu, Aditya and Katrina and getting the dates of the lead actors isn't going to be easy.
