It's a different energy altogether when actors like these are pitted against each other. This time around it is 'Genius - The Genie' (Big B) v/s 'Ringmaster' (Sanjay Dutt)," director Sujoy Ghosh said. »

Sharmila Tagore and Soha Ali Khan to star together in an English film

27 April 2009 4:02 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It's always a pleasure to see Bollywood's current generation of star kids share screen space with their real life parents on screen. So, after the Deols who created some frenzy courtesy Apne, it's now the turn of mother-daughter duo of Sharmila Tagore and Soha Ali Khan to be seen on the big screen together for the first time. Sharmila and Soha will be seen in an English film directed by Sangeeta Datta (erstwhile assistant to Rituparno Ghosh). We got in touch with Soha who confirmed the news. "Yes Mom and I are doing a film together. It's an English film by a British production company and directed by Sangeeta Datta. It's an absolutely lovely script and shooting starts in May in London." The as yet untitled film is not your typical boy-meets-girl love story and is in fact a family drama revolving around a father and his three daughters. Besides Sharmila and Soha, »

Vidya Balan signs Nikhil Advani's Chand Bhai and Bhansali's Chenab Gandhi

26 February 2009 1:50 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Download image as wallpaper The graceful Vidya Balan who turned a year older on January 1, has turned a new leaf. After her abortive attempts to revamp her wardrobe in Heyy Babyy and Kismat Konnection, Vidya has decided to go easy on the glam ramp. "It's not as though I am disowning my efforts to do glamorous roles. I'm proud of Heyy Babyy and Kismat Konnection. But this year I'm doing films that don't need me to stretch my personality. I'm very happy doing roles that come naturally to me. That's what I decided about my career this year." Vidya has just given the nod to Nikhil (Chandni Chowk To China) Advani's next film which would surprise many. Advani's Chand Bhai is a raw realistic song less film on juvenile delinquency. Says Vidya, "It's nothing like the high-flying glam-wham stuff that one expects from Nikhil after Chandni Chowk. Chand Bhai is »

Mickey Rourke to Gee Up for Broken Horses

30 January 2009 7:40 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Gangster film Broken Horses is to be the American film debut of Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and Indian director who certainly likes to plan ahead. His official site lists no less than five films. Okay, Rodriguez and Del Toro style, his slate is full of many projects he only intends to produce, not direct, but it sounds to me like he has a different pie for every finger.

Here’s the official blurb from Chopra’s site and, after the break, more info and the pre-shoot publicity poster.

Vinod Chopra’s Broken Horses, with a screenplay based on an original story by Chopra himself, is the work of award-winning writer Abhijat Joshi (Lage Raho Munnabhai, Eklavya and 64 Squares) and script consultant Jason Richman (Bangkok Dangerous, Swing Vote). The film is in pre-production and will go on the floors later this year.

With a series of acclaimed films to his name, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is ready to mark his directorial debut in Hollywood with his ambitious project Broken Horses and his hunt for the lead actor is finally over. The filmmaker has signed on this year's Golden Globe Best Actor winner and Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) for this film. Chopra also revealed that he had seen a special screening of Rourke's The Wrestler before the awards fever began. "I was bowled over by his performance. Both of us had an instant connect when we met in Los Angeles. He was my first choice and was finalized even before he won the Golden Globe; it's great to have him on board for one of the key roles in the film. Mickey deserves all the acclaim he is getting and I hope he wins the Oscar as well," said the maverick director. »
