We Are Looking For The Following:
Johnnie Blackwell (Male) 19 - 22. Very good looking, brooding and street-wise, Johnnie can’t get a job without a work visa, so he takes up busking in the subways for cash. But when he meets classical dancer Ruby during a hip hop battle gone wrong, they immediately clash but he can’t deny the chemistry between them. »

These past few years Bollywood changed a lot regarding the picturisation of songs. A lot of songs were used in the background describing the situation while the video showed you every emotion that goes with the song. This year Bollywood went back to the big, beautiful, and mesmerising picturisations that this industry is known for.
Just take a look at some of the songs that have left an everlasting impression …
Nagada Sang Dhol – Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela
Bollywood is known for its larger than life dance sequences and with a director like Sanjay Leela Bhansali at the head of Ram-Leela one can only expect nothing less. Nagada Sang Dhol, featuring Deepika Padukone, is a song that belongs in the larger than life category.
The grandeur of the song with the huge sets, color coordinated clothes and the folk madness captures the essences of the rich Gujarati culture on the big screen perfectly. »
- Charla Manohar
Directed by Adam Wingard (VHS, A Horrible Way to Die) and set during a family reunion in a remote part of the countryside in the Us, You’re Next sees the moneyed Davison family besieged by lunatic killers in creepy animal masks. Fortunately, it turns out that Erin, the girlfriend of one of the eldest brother is something of a total bad-ass herself and is soon rallying the family around to fight back with makeshift weaponry and traps. Thus begins a small scale war with their attackers. Who will survive and what will be left of them?
Despite my initial excitement, I was actually fairly nonplussed by You’re Next at first. It seemed fairly stolid, with broadly drawn characters and an uninventive set up. »
