Size:  6.7 KBJohn, Abhishek shoot an additional song for Dostana
It's customary for two stars to be pitched against one another in real life whenever they are paired on screen. The last time we heard murmurs of discontent was when Bipasha and Deepika apparently couldn't stand one another while shooting Bachna Ae Haseeno.

But John and Abhishek get along like a house on fire. To their regret, they had to shoot a music video for Dostana separately.

Producer Karan Johar who just landed in Mumbai after two weeks of location hunting in Los Angeles says the song 'Maa Da Ladla' was shot during his absence. "I left it entirely to my director Tarun Mansukhani and to the choreographer Feroz (who's been Farah Khan's assistant for ten years). So you'll have to ask Tarun what happened."

Tarun Mansukhani has his own explanation for why Abhishek and John shot the song separately. "I deliberately didn't shoot the song with John and Abhishek together. I wanted at least this one song 'Maa Da Ladla' to look different from the rest of the film where they're constantly together, fooling around, chumming it up. They shot individually, so the masti of the rest of the movie was missing on the sets." Tarun trails off sadly, and then perks up. "The last shooting before this was for 'Desi Girl' where all of us were together. It was so much fun."

The 'Maa Da Ladla' song was shot on 15, 16 and 17 October at Filmistan studios and onlookers watched Abhishek and John arrive on separate days. "This is a music video which we'll use for promotion and probably for the end titles," explains Tarun.

Says Abhishek, "It was wonderful to shoot with John Abraham again after Dhoom. It was fun on the sets because we were all friends."

Adds John, "Abhishek is not co-star or colleague. He's a friend. I dote on him. I love him to death. We never compete. We complement each other in Dostana. We share a great chemistry. Abhishek and I are a couple in the film."

If you happen to switch on the TV anytime of the day or night, chances are bright that, you will be treated with is some sort of a 'reality' show, wherein all that the judges do is fighting and quarrelling much for the TRPs! Well, in such a television scenario, NDTV Imagine has come up with a show called 'Oye... It's Friday', which truly promises to be one of its kind.

The show will consist of one hour of sheer cutting edge humour, dazzling performances; news making guests etc... And to host the show, the channel has roped in none other than the 'Rocking' Director cum actor Farhan Akhtar, who, about his association with the show, said, "This show is something I want to watch... it has no rules and no boundaries... and its only aim is to entertain. I've done a lot of different things in my life and career and the reason I want to be a part of 'Oye... Its Friday' is because it is so excitingly unconventional.

There will be other celebrities hosts too who will switch and swap over the course of the series! If the pre-show hysteria is anything to go by, then, it only becomes needles to say that Fridays will just not be the same again! What say Farhan!

The British Capital, London, has been a favorite of many Bollywood filmmakers. In recent past, films like Cheeni Kum, Namastey London and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom have been shot majorly in and around London.

With a view to improve the working relations between the U.K. and Indian entertainment industry, the U.K Film Minister Barbara Follett signed a bilateral co-production treaty with the Hindi film industry aka Bollywood.

Filmmaker Vipul Shah and actor Ajay Devgan who are filming their latest project London Dreams in the British capital were present to launch the treaty. The treaty gives Indian producers benefits such as easy access to tax breaks, fresh funding sources and practical support.

Vipul Shah, for whom London has always been a favourite shooting destination, seemed pleased with this treaty as it would only further ease shooting in the British capital. The deal will also help the British movie industry withstand the economic downturn and hence indeed seems like a win-win situation for the film and entertainment industry of both nations.

Madhur Bhandarkar is known for making hard-hitting and realistic cinema; hence facing controversies around his film's release is something which is not new to this talented filmmaker. His latest film Fashion starring Priyanka Chopra, Kangna Ranaut and Mugdha Godse in lead roles opened across cinema halls yesterday (Oct 29) and this time too, Madhur had to deal with a fair share of controversies.

Firstly, there were rumors that Kangna's character in the film has been inspired by noted Delhi based model Geetanjali Nagpal. Then the censor board irked Madhur by giving him an 'A' certificate as they felt the film had certain objectionable scenes for kids.

However, the director could have got himself into more trouble had he included a gay kissing scene in the film. The scene had actors Samir Soni and Anil Kumar share a kiss in a car but Madhur decided to drop the scene at the last minute as he didn't want any further complications. However, for all of you who indeed want to have a dekko of the same, the director is planning to include it in the DVD of the film. Must say, Madhur has already started promoting the DVD of Fashion in a smart way.

Size:  5.1 KBDarsheel's dad in TZP to play Ashmit Patel's father in a Hollywood project
Vipin Sharma, who was recently seen as Darsheel Safary's dad in Taare Zameen Par, has been signed for a Hollywood project titled Florida Road. In the film, he would be playing the role of Raaj Shekhar, an Indian who has moved from India to Durban. Ashmit Patel would enact the role of his son Shaan.

Confirms Vipin who also played Emraan Hashmi's dad in his second successive hit Jannat early this year, "In Florida Road, I play the role of an Indian who has settled in Durban and is a successful Laywer. Ashmit plays my son who is 20's-something with a heart of gold and has a desire to write the next great Hollywood screenplay."

Florida Road is an independent movie being produced by Brad Glass, from Hollywood, California, that centers in the culturally diverse city of Durban, South Africa. The movie is a heartfelt story about love, culture, family values and following your dreams.

"My character in the film has difficulty understanding his relationships with his son. When an untimely health issue hits me, secrets are exposed and Shaan is forced to come to terms with life itself. This is when I also understand the turmoil Shaan is in and his dreams", elaborates Vipin who sees himself as a part of yet another complex role.

Florida Road is written by Fred Fontana, a Hollywood veteran, who has been a producer on US hits like Soldier (Kurt Russell) and Vegas Vacation (Chevy Chase). His other feature credits include The Specialist with Sylvester Stallone and The Next Karate Kid with Hilary Swank.

"I am looking forward to the shooting of Florida Road which is expected to take place in February/March timeframe. We all would be traveling to Durban for the film's shoot", reveals Vipin.

Meanwhile, he has also been signed by Rahul Dholakia for Lamha where he plays a very important role of an army officer who is closest to Sanjay (Dutt). Both these characters work on a plan to fight the unrest in the valley. Shooting in Kashmir would begin soon for the film.

Size:  7.9 KBSohail and Vatsal to play brothers in Vicky Chopra's Season's Greetings
Vatsal Sheth who seemed to have come out of the state of eclipse after his distorted debacle in Tarzan-The Wonder Car, has found an unlikely one-man support-system in Sohail Khan.

The two worked together and hit it off like a house on fire while playing traveling- companions in Samir Karnik's Heroes. Since then, Vatsal has been getting a hand-up from his adopted 'Bhaiyya'.

After Heroes, Sohail has been recommending Vatsal for other films. He got him a plum role in Subhash Ghai's production Paying Guest. And now Sohail and Vatsal play brothers in Vicky Chopra's Seasons Greetings.

Says Vatsal, "It's good to have someone look out for you. After Tarzan-The Wonder Car, I didn't want to do any and every film. I waited. In Heroes, Sohail bhai and I play friends traveling together. He put me so much at ease that I forgot I was years younger than him. We actually became buddies as we traveled together through the film. With Heroes, I feel I've come of age. And now he plays my bro in Seasons Greetings."

And that bonding persists. Says Vatsal, "In an industry where actors are known to steal scenes and roles from under your nose, Sohail bhai has been going out of his way to be good to me. It's true he got me Subhash Ghai's Paying Guest. The role was offered to Sohail bhai. When he couldn't do it he recommended me."

Vatsal is still remembering for his long stint as the teenage pinup boy in the serial Just Mohabbat. "Back then when they had done a popularity survey, Shah Rukh and Hrithik were in the first two places. My character Jai in Just Mohabbat was named third," says Vatsal.

Any regrets about his career? "Just one. My film Hostel which was gritty raw film about ragging in student campuses featuring students, who had actually been through the ragging, got shelved. I'd have liked that film to come out. I had worked really hard on getting the character right. But it's okay. I've lots to look forward to. I'm patient. I proved it by waiting for three years after my movie debut in Tarzan-The Wonder Car for the right offers."

Sohail who's shooting for David Dhawan's Do Knot Disturb in Abu Dhabi adds, "Vatsal is a lovely boy. I'm really fond of him."

RGV announces the mammoth starcast of his next directorial venture - Rann

Now that you all know RGV is getting busier with his next big release Rann - A News Story...what's new huh? We'll tell you. Remember RGV saying that Rann will be a high voltage drama and then the speculation about the starcast in the biggie? So if Aamir Khan decided to unveil the first look of his film Ghajini on Diwali day, RGV has decided to unveil the principal starcast of Rann after the D-day, and as usual, Bollywood Hungama brings you the exclusive list of the who's who of Bollywood featuring in Rann and their character sketches.

Harshvardhan Malik
Cast: Amitabh Bachchan

The founder of the first ever private news channel in the country INDIA 24/7, the Harvard-educated Harshvardhan Malik is India's most respected media personality. He is a hardcore upholder of journalistic ethics. No wonder his Channel is battling for survival!

Jay Malik
Cast: Sudeep

A go-getter and highly aggressive and ambitious son of Harshvardhan Malik, Jay looks at his feather's news channel purely as a business enterprise that must make profits to justify its existence. He hates that his competition is doing better than him.

Purab Shastri
Cast: Riteish Deshmukh

Armed with a degree in journalism, Purab Shastri truly believes that the media should be the check point for the people of a country, and therefore, it should report news, instead of manufacturing news. Purab's thinking sets him apart from most youngsters of this country. While everyone is chasing their individual dreams, Purab aggressively wants to work towards a better India. Needless to say, a clash between Purab and the powers-that-be looks inevitable. It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong!

Mohan Pandey
Cast: Paresh Rawal

It is every politician's dream to become the Prime Minister of his country. To that extent, the leader of the opposition Mohan Pandey is no different from his contemporaries. The only difference being - if the need arises, Pandey can and will kill to get the coveted chair.

Amrish Kakkar
Cast: Mohnish Behl

Amrish Kakkar was the first to have the VISION and the foresight to realize that even the business of delivering NEWS can be made ENTERTAINING. Amrish therefore can be safely held singularly responsible for taking the television news industry to the dogs, or to the heights, depending on how you see it. His channel is no less than a shady brothel, the content that is NEWS is no less than a cheap hooker, and Amrish Kakkar - the most powerful pimp around.

Nalini Kashyap
Cast: Manisha Koirala

Nalini Kashyap is the programming head of Harshvardhan Malik's news channel, INDIA 24/7. Having been in the industry for long enough, she has developed a practical view of how things operate here. And this comes in direct conflict with what her boss, Harshvardhan Malik, thinks. Juggling the cut-throat world outside with the idealistic universe of her boss, Nalini Kashyap has her job cut out.

Naveen Shankalya
Cast: Rajat Kapoor

Naveen Shankalya, apart from being the son-in-law of Harshvardhan Malik, is also one of the topmost industrialists of the country. Despite this, he is the most insecure man on earth, and won't rest till he becomes the number one industrialist in the country. His best buddy Mohan Pandey becoming the Prime Minister of India will surely help his cause.

Nandita Sharma
Cast: Gul Panag

The assistant of an ad filmmaker, Nandita Sharma someday hopes to bag an independent feature film. She is in a live-in relationship with her boyfriend Purab. Nandita is smart, educated, and intelligent. She is also highly indifferent to what's happening in the country, and first thinks about herself and her man, before anything or anybody else. On both counts, she represents the youth of India.

Yasmin Hussain
Cast: Raima Sen

An ex-model, and fiancée of Jay Malik, Yasmin watches TV, reads gossip columns, and for most part, takes everything that is dished out to her, AT FACE VALUE. She does not understand the intricacies of power games, and hidden motivations behind actions of people. The resources at her disposal to know what is true and what is not, are limited. She is not innocent, and she is not clever either. Yasmin therefore epitomizes the 'common man'.

Anand Prakash Trivedi
Cast: Rajpal Yadav

A creative editor, Anand Prakash Trivedi has a knack for sensationalizing even in the driest story and making it sound like the story of the decade with super catchy headlines. More than any filmmaker, he makes far better movies. Only, he calls them NEWS.

Well, looking at the starcast of RGV's Rann, one can say that this in itself is a 'breaking news'.
