Katrina becomes biker-chick for Blue

For those of you who have seen Katrina Kaif in Blue, must have noticed Katrina’s completely new and different avatar. Katrina sports a hip look in the movie, with tattoos, dreadlocks and stud piercing below her lip. A source says, “Katrina was excited about her look as it’s absolutely different from whatever she has done before this.” However the dreadlocks were not easy to adjust for Katrina, as her hair became quite rough after sporting the hairdo. “She’d immediately go for a hair wash once the shoot would be over,” said the source.katrina-kaif-blue-look-wallpaper

Himesh’s film is earning before its release

Himesh Reshammiya in Radio Musician-singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya’s forthcoming film Radio has already earned its initial investment even before releasing. Thanks to the business perspective of the actor and his producer of the film. Talking about his plan of the film, Himesh said, “I requested Ravi to go in for a very different release strategy as the film has been made for a target audience. The theatrical release will be in sync with the sensibilities with which Radio has been made. It has been treated with a very fresh approach and that’s what makes it very different or else, it’s a very simple love triangle set in 2009 with the backdrop of a radio station and an RJ as the protagonist.” No doubt Himesh has become a wealthy musician in recent times due to his creativity and business strategy. Even though he had fights with Asha Bhosle on the popular singing show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, what he talks has point. His talks do not include a single wasting word. He talks straight to the point and correct. His creativity and business strategies go in co-relation with the changing marketing strategies, which we can clearly see by looking at his growth from musician to singer to actor. Himesh has not only become a busy musician but also a busy actor. After the release Radio, he is coming up with three back to back releases- Pooja Bhatt’s Kajraare, John Mathews’ A New Love Ishtory and Ishk Unplugged.

He also admits that he has learned from his past mistakes. Talking about his past failure Karzzzz, he adds, “After going wrong with Karzzzz, I felt that the release strategy should be right. When you talk about a multiplex audience, then Radio cannot be released in a thousand theatres, right? Everything today is about price. Is it a price hit or a price flop? Now that the cost of this film has already been recovered, everything that comes from theatre will only be a profit.” Seems like Himesh is one those who still has reasons to smile even in the recession time.

Preity Zinta turns Item Girl for Salman Khan

: It’s been a while since we’ve seen Bollywood Actress Preity Zinta on the big screen, and now she is all ready to make a comeback of sorts. Bollywood’s dimpled beauty has reportedly agreed to do an item number, or what she calls ‘a special song’ for the Salman-Kareena starrer Main Aur Mrs Khanna. Interestingly, the visual composition of the song and Preity’s outfit is strikingly reminiscent of Ash’s Kajra re. Preity, however, is quick to clarify that she actually has a role in the film, and therefore the song is more than just an item number. According to the grapevine, like the title of the song, Preity Zinta is looking Happening.
