Bipasha’s Kashmir-Urdu Causes Linguistic Trauma

At this very moment Bipasha Basu is going through the biggest challenge of her career. She has to drop her anglicized-Bengali accent and diction completely to sound like the Kashmiri Muslim girl she plays in Rahul Dholakia’s Lamhaa.

Even when Bipasha had done a Bengali film Sob Charitro Kalponik by Rituparno Ghosh, she had been forbidden by the director from dubbing her own lines although Bengali is her mother tongue.

And Now a Sequel To Prince

Lara Dutta, Bipasha Basu, Sushmita Sen…These are the names that would be offered the lead parts in the sequel to Prince which is all set to go on the floors early next year.

Kookie Gulati, the young director of Prince is in a daze. He just can’t believe the opening that his film Prince has received. And before he could even begin to let the whole idea of a potential hit sink in, he’s all set to create a sequel to Prince.

Confirming this, Gulati says, “We had left the ending open, suggesting there might be more to the plot than what we had just seen. But there was just a hint of a fear. What if Prince fell flat on its face? What would people say about even suggesting a sequel?”

Luckily the response to the film has been overwhelming. Kookie who had never directed a feature film before, has locked the plot. “I have an idea for the sequel which I’ll now develop. Since it’s the plot that has worked in Prince we’ve to make sure the sequel is even stronger in terms of content.”

While Vivek Oberoi will of course play the title role in the sequel the rest of the cast specially the leading ladies will all change.

Says a source close to the Prince project, “When we approached the top leading ladies they all either said a straight no nor or begged off with the date excuse. They had no faith in the project. More importantly no top leading lady wanted to work with Vivek. On the day after Prince opened Vivek began to receive congratulatory smses from some of the leading ladies who had declined to work with him in Prince.”

Vivek Oberoi laughs . “I wouldn’t like to dwell on the past. All is good now. And I’d just like to concentrate on the positive things. Yes, we are making a sequel.In fact when we put in a suggestion of it in the first film we had finally decided to edit it out because it was vain at that point of time to think audiences would like our film enough to see a sequel.”

Adds Kookie Gulati, “It’s been a three-year uphill climb for me and Vivek. I was making music videos for the Tauranis’ Tips It took me a great deal of effort to convince them that I could pull off a feature film. During the last three years I have had no time to do anything else but the film.My 3-year old son thinks I’m a stranger in the house. I’m much better prepared for the sequel. I’m more confident now.”

Producer Kumar Taurani also confirms plans for the sequel.

Cosmo thinks SRK and Ranbir are Females?

Cosmopolitan Fearless Female Awards were held recently, and some of the winners I know are Bipasha Basu, Sania Mirza, Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor.

Don’t even think that I have mistakenly included Shahrukh and Ranbir in the above list… both won the Fearless Female Awards for real (photo proof). I don’t know what’s the story behind the awards, but I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw them holding those trophies shaped as a high heel (ladies shoes or whatever they are called).

Have they included Shahrukh and Ranbir in the Female list? Hope Shahrukh and Ranbir don’t fight, because each got just one high heel and what if they would like to try it out. Yeah, I think the high heel is quite wearable… you just have to knock the bottom stand off. Me and my crazy imaginations! Whatever guys, this is quite funny.

If you know the real story, you can always leave them as comments.
