Further talking about the latest problem with singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan…. He says,” I would not like to comment on this issue. I do not know what exactly the matter is. All I can say is that this is not a very pleasant situation and no one would ever like to get indulged in such happening.” He averts the query smartly.

Getting into a bigger bracket with the likes of YRF and Karan Johar he adds,” I think I was lucky enough to get recognition through my first flick “Tere Bin… and offers started pouring in thereafter.”

Given a chance Ali will choose singing over acting.” Ya! I am passionate about singing. I shall surely choose singing over acting but if I am bestowed upon a chance to work for both I shall definitely jump for it.” He gushes smilingly.

Coming back to his latest film”MBKS ,Ali Zafar who seems to be very enthused for he is the fiancée of Kathrina Kaif. Don’t you jump to conclusion he is the fiancé on reel. He adds, “Imran and I are brothers in “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. While Katrina is my fiancée. I am a very charming and flamboyant person but confused about what I want from life. It was not only fun working with Kat and Imraan but also a great learning experience.” the Pakistani actor gives away some details, giving a sneak peek into the film.

Ali Zafar also clarifies about not being miffed with Imraan on the sets.” I fail to understand as to where from such stories pop up. Infact Imraan Khan is a very humble guy. We get along pretty well. Whenever we have time we surely meet up on a coffee and enjoy discussing various subjects.”

Meri Brother Ki Dulhan is being directed by debutante Ali Abbas Zafar. The film. is a musical romantic-comedy set around a love triangle. The film is likely to release in July.

Getting personal we ask his take on metro sexual man.” Showing off his painted nails he gives away a secret,”Actually, before I could take the flight to India my father-in-law was doing pedicure and manicure. He just called me and asked me to clean up with my nails. The only regret is that the nail polish I am wearing is too shinnying. There is no harm in cleaning your nails. Even we guys can be prim and proper with our body parts.

Since Ali is the field of Glitz n glamor and also married will he prefer getting into an extra marital affair we quiz? Laughs aloud and quips,” Well! I am totally a family person. Not that I may not get attracted to any female actor while working. But I will always think twice to get into any relationship cause I am of the opinion that why spoil your family life just for the sake of enjoying only for 45 minutes. Family is more important than any other momentary link ups. So I better be away from it”

Alis take on love is,” Love sees no boundaries… love happens .. no one tries to fall in love intentionally. I.E at times love is one sided. Yes! Attraction and meeting any opposite sex often may develop likings for each other but love also may happen instantly at the very first sight… Love is an unusual happening which definitely puts your heart above your mond.” Ali Zafar adds philosophically.

After 3 Idiots and Raajneeti, if there is one film which has won all around appreciation for itself, is Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.

Bollywood at the World Cup Finals

At first, it seemed that like actor John Abraham, Anil Kapoor too would not be able to make it to the World Cup finals. By Saturday evening Anil Kapoor had still not left for the World Cup. And it was unlikely that he would do so.

Finally he did make it.

Sighed Anil, “Some work had come up. It looked like I wouldn’t be able to go to Johannesburg although I was booked packed and had seats in the stadium. But I finally did make it. I am the brand ambassador and this is the biggest sports event. I somehow made it”, said Anil on Saturday evening as he left for South Africa.

Fifa World Cup 2010 South Africa

Another football enthusiast Dino Morea too seemed unsure of making it to Johannesburg. “I’m in London all set to go. But my air ticket is not confirmed. If it doesn’t happen I’ll just have to watch it on television here in London.”

Dino is a huge football fan. “I play football and I love watching it. I was supporting Italy because I am half-Italian. Now I’m supporting Spain because they’ve never won the World Cup.”

The football fever has never been more pronounced in Bollywood. With the World Cup Finals around the corner many stars have taken off for Johannesburg to witness the grand finals.

Sanjay Dutt left his pregnant wife in Mumbai to be with his two non-filmy best-friends from South Africa (name withheld on request) for the finals.

Says Sanju, “I wouldn’t miss the World Cup for the world. I’m a huge football fan. I place it above cricket in my scheme of joy. I watched the silliest of games in the semi-finals. For the finals I had to be here (in Johannesburg)”.

Dutt is rooting for Spain all the way. So is Jackky Bhagnani. Producer Vashu Bhagnani’s son has apparently secured some of best seats in the stadium for himself and his five friends from Mumbai.

Speaking on the eve of the match from Johannesburg, Jackky exulted, “Man, I’ve the best view possible! I could never afford these seats. They are among the best in the stadium. An industrialist friend from Russia got me these seats. I can’t express my excitement. I feel like an 8-year old who has got his favorite toy. My friends and I have our tee-shirts, caps, and flags ready. We’re rooting for Spain all the way”.

Adding to Jackky’s excitement is the fact that this is the first World Cup match he’s attending.

Shah Rukh Khan and Imran Khan have already tweeted about their presence in Johannesburg for the World Cup finals. Shah Rukh’s best friend Karan Johar couldn’t make it. Other football enthusiasts from Bollywood who had to miss the event are Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor who are shooting in Colombo and Delhi, respectively.

IHLS Success Translates into Better Prospects for Aisha and Break Ke Baad

Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor can heave a sigh of relief. Despite a terrific weekend that boasted of 23 crores coming in, there were cynics who were waiting for I Hate Luv Storys to fall on weekdays. Bandh on Monday didn’t help the cause as theaters were closed till evening. Despite that the reception continued to range between decent and good. Approximately 10 crores were added in the next four days that resulted in a collection of nearly 32 crores for the film in the very first week. These are good collections by industry standards and instantly put Imran and Sonam in the top bracket.

I Hate Luv Storys

The benchmark of 50 crores seems a clear possibility for I Hate Luv Storys. It is a hit affair for Dharma Productions and UTV Motion Pictures.With this latest hit they would be willing to forget the debacle of their earlier project Kurbaan. Also, in one stroke the film has ended up doing much better business than Wake Up Sid which was again a Dharma-UTV collaboration. Yes, there are voices around I Hate Luv Storys that label it as clichéd and just a repackaged affair going right due to some aggressive marketing and promotion. However, when instant coffee is the name of the game and movie making strictly stays a business affair, a fast inflow of cash is the demand of the situation. In that context, I Hate Luv Storys has done truly well.

The film is expected to have some positive impact on the future projects of Imran and Sonam which are Break Ke Baad and Aisha respectively. Of course, it’s the product that ultimately matters, something which many actors would agree (Salman Khan’s Main Aurr Mrs Khanna came after Wanted, Ranbir’s Rocket Singh – Salesman of the Year came after Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani). However, it’s the general positive energy in the air that counts and for both Imran and Sonam this is something that would indeed matter most.
