High-Pricers Hrithik Roshan Abhishek Bachchan seem to lose ground

Post the box office duds like Raavan and Kites that starred Bollywood biggies like Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan respectively, the two have lost their ‘pricy status’ so to speak!

According to a buzz, it has been found that, both Abhishek and Hrithik, who’ve been two of the most sought-after Bollywood male stars, have sort of lost their charm and are really not in demand like they used to be.

Ra.One Clashes with Raavan

As strange as it sounds, the by now released Abhishek Bachchan starrer Raavan sounds similar to the forthcoming Ra. One by Shah Rukh Khan.

SRk quite naturally found himself in a bit of perplexity when the fans were at first confused between the two titles. Apart from the spelling, the plot and even the star casts and the story are very dissimilar. Ra. One is a science fiction film while Raavan was more of a modern version of the heroic tale.

OUATIM should take one of the best openings of 2010

In a year, there are those 8–10 films that give out right signals right from the time the first promo hits the air. Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai is one such fortunate films that has treaded just the right path to reach the kind of comfort stage that it finds itself in today. Just about everything seems to be going positively for this Milan Luthria film as of now. Whether it is it’s casting (Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi), edgy look, and dramatic premise and, of course, the music which is topping the charts – everything is contributing to ensure that Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai takes a very positive start at the box office.

Abhishek Bachchan Wins ‘Best Anchor Male Award 2010’

Abhishek Bachchan is definitely following the footsteps of his legendary father Amitabh Bachchan as he has bagged the ‘Best Anchor Male Award 2010’ for his debut show ‘National Bingo Night’ in Colors.

Raavan, the latest release of junior Bachchan, could not make it big at the box office but he got noticed as an anchor for the game show.

Ashwini Yardi, the programming head of Colors, has handed over the award to Abhishek at the event in Mumbai. He has got this talent inherited from his father and gave the game show a feel of larger than life. This achievement must have made Big B proud of his son.

Abhishek bonded with the ‘Chak Dhoom Dhoom’ kids very well and enjoyed fully. Even while at stage, he did not forget to mention about these talented kids of the dance show, who performed at the ceremony.

Colors will air the awards function today. These awards were given to recognize and salute the brilliance amongst the debutantes in television.

Abhishek Bachchan is Neck-Deep in Action Flicks

After three back-to-back action films – Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, Ashutosh Gowariker’s Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se and Abhinay Deo’s Game – Abhishek Bachchan has had enough action to last him a while. He’s all set for a complete change of pace with three comedies to be directed by Tarun Mansukhani, Anees Bazmi, and Vipul Shah.

The decision to move away from grueling, back-breaking and physically exertive action for a while is a conscious one.

Disasters go Unreported in IHLS Frenzy

With I Hate Luv Storys being the flavour of the season and brickbats still coming in for a debacle called Raavan, the newer releases were royally ignored. Films like Krantiveer – The Revolution and Mr. Singh Mrs. Mehta were never expected to change the face of Indian cinema. But the least that the makers would have expected was to have a face-saving release, if not an opening.

Crucial Nine Months ahead for Abhishek Bachchan

When ‘Raavan’ opened to below average houses on Friday, it was mauled by the audience as well as the critics and showed no improvement over the weekend, it was certain that this Mani Ratnam film won’t even become a respectable disaster like ‘Kites’. Respectable? Because ‘Kites’, despite all its negatives and nothing much to write home about, still managed a good first weekend for itself that helped it come closer to the 50 crore mark as the lifetime total. This means that the film had the ignominy of being the biggest disaster ever with the highest total for a disaster/flop tag. Before ‘Kites’, the ‘position’ was held by ‘Chandni Chowk to China’, ‘Delhi 6′ and ‘Tashan’ which were the ‘highest grossing flops’ ever with a final total managing to cross 30 crores.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on Raavan, Abhishek Bachchan and Mani Ratnam

Raavan has been a gruelling experience for you?

Why just me? Everyone in the film has gone through an equal amount of hardships to create a film we all believe in. There we were, getting drenched in the rain, and Mani Ratnam , Santosh Sivan …everyone was there facing the weather. We were all friends in the project. Everyone was there for one another. We could joke say it was like an adventure sport, or a video game while we were making our way through the most impossible conditions. But we knew what the truth was.

aishwarya rai

Were you prepared for the severe hardships when you read the script?

It was still a bit of shock and surprise when we had to face the climactic conditions in the jungles. On top of that Mani loves to make on-the-spot changes . He improvises all the time. He doesn’t want to strictly follow the written word. He’s a master of creating magical moments out of the seemingly ordinary. What he does is incredible. Just the pleasure of working with him again (after Iruvar) was amazing.

Tejaswini Kolhapure Gets the Rawest Deal Ever in Raavan

If Govinda thinks he got a raw deal in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan then he can seek solace in the savage butchering of Tejaswini Kolhapuri’s role.

Padmini Kolhapur’s pretty baby sister was signed on for a prominent role as Ravi Kissan’s wife. She spent 2 ½ gruelling months away from home and husband (filmmaker-actor Pankaj Saraswat) in the jungles shooting for Raavan.

The end-result…one passing shot lasting no more than 5 seconds in a wedding song.
