No takers for Akki-Deepika?

What looks like a promising masala flick, Chandni Chowl To China, is rumoured to be in trouble.

The movie, which stars Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone, is proving to be the most expensive film for buyers. Warner Bros, who have made their mark in Bollywood are asking for Rs 20 crore for Chandani Chowk To China. Considering the price is double of flicks like OSO, Welcome and Singh Is Kinng's Rs 8-10 crore, buyers from the Mumbai circuit are hesitant to come forth...

One of our reliable sources has revealed, "Yes it's true. Warner Bros has put a figure of Rs 20 crore in the market for the Mumbai circuit. From the looks of it, it might be one of the coolest films ever made by Bollywood, but recently no big budget film has recovered its cost. SRK's OSO and Akki's Welcome did rake in Rs 17 – 18 crore, the highest till date. So unless they (Warner Bros) slash their asking price, they might just have to release the film themselves."

Chandni Chowk To China is releasing around Diwali and has been made in a budget of Rs 80 crore. Another Rs 10 – 15 crore will be spent on publicity.

It’s only Ranbir I am in love with: Deepika

Deepika Padukone gets candid with Rakhi Sawant and declares that she loves Ranbir from the core of her heart. She squashed off her linking up with model Nihar Pandya and cricketers Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni and cursed media for spreading wrong news about her and degrading her image. She heaved a sigh of relief when she tied up with Ranbir and media shunned her topic.

So when Rakhi Sawant asked her to clear the air, she poured her heart out, "It’s only Ranbir I am in love with. I don’t understand why the media always points a finger at me. It really unnerves me. No one ever talks about what the boy has done to me. I feel men should be taken to task equally."

Deepika is looking forward to do more films with Ranbir. Very soon, she will be seen sharing her beau with Bipasha Basu and Minissha Lamba in Bachna Ae Haseeno. Her next release is Chandi Chowk To China with Akshay Kumar .

Before Deepika, I was seeing Kim: Yuvraj

Celebrity news magazine People sits down with Yuvraj Singh for an exclusive interview about the controversies that have dogged him both on and off the cricket field. The dashing India all-rounder tells Karishma Upadhyay that he lost out on captaining the Indian ODI cricket team because of "various other reasons" and not his party-animal image.

"It is very unfair for people to judge me on what I do off the field. I love to party and I have no problems in saying this... As long as it doesn’t affect my cricket, I am going to keep doing what I'm doing. I have been playing international cricket for eight years now and that's not a joke," he adds.
'I don't fool around. Before Deepika, I was seeing Kim'

People reports that after a brief romance with debutante actress Deepika Padukone, Yuvraj is single for the first time in nine years.
"Well, she was with me and now she's moved on with another person. I guess it's her personal choice," he says.
He also reveals, "I don't fool around. Before Deepika, I was seeing Kim [Sharma] for four years and it was a serious and committed relationship."

According to him, the right woman, "not only understands how important my public image is but she should also push me towards the best that I can be in cricket".

While the left-handed batsman says that he will now "need someone stable in my life", he also tells People his big love remains cricket and his big dream, captaincy.

"I would love to captain India one day."

Deepika-Ranbir go on a kissing spree yet again!

It seems that the B-town hotties, Deepika and Ranbir can’t get enough of each other and hence, are forced to indulge into public display of affection every now and then. They do so with an √©lan and that too with no embarrassments. Recently, the much in love couple went on a ‘smooching spree’, while shooting for a promotional gig for their movie ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’.

Grapevine has it, that the two couldn't keep their hands off each other and ended up creating a nuisance for the cast and crew members on the sets.

Both Ranbir and Dips were supposed to shoot a couple of scenes together and after a few of the shots were done with, the two could not curtail their emotions and started ‘making out’ in full public view. Everyone present in and around the sets was shocked by this and didn’t know how to react to the whole situation and ended up being scandalised.

Apparently, the director of the movie, Siddharth Anand, who is also a close friend of Ranbir pounced on the opportunity to pull his pal’s leg and was overhead yelling- “Get a room! You Guys”.

But looks like the two are hell bent on making out Khullam Khulla.

'Yash Raj has taken a risk with Bachna Ae Haseeno'

After the debacle of Tashan and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, Yash Raj Films is pinning its hopes on its next venture, Bachna Ae Haseeno, starring Ranbir Kapoor [Images], Deepika Padukone [, Minisha Lamba and Bipasha Basu

Director Siddharth Anand, who gave us the hit Salaam Namaste [Images] and the not so successful Ta Ra Rum Pum [Images], will helm this film, while Vishal-Shekhar will score the music.

Shot in Mumbai, Sydney, Switzerland [Images], Amritsar [Images], Rome and Italy [Images], Bachna Ae Haseeno will release on August 15.

Nithya Ramani caught up with Siddharth, and quizzed him about the film.

What is Bachna Ae Haseeno about?

It is about the journey of a boy from the age of 16 to 30, who meets three girls at different stages of his life. What he learns from life and from the girls is what the film is about.

Ranbir plays Raj Sharma, a gaming expert. He is not a Casanova, he's like the boy next door.

Bipasha Basu is a glamourous girl from Mumbai, Minissha Lamba is a small-town girl from Punjab and Deepika Padukone is an NRI from Australia.

Why did you choose Ranbir? Do you think he will able to pull in the audiences, especially when his first film, Saawariya didn't do well? Why didn't you take Saif, who starred in your earlier films, Salaam Namaste and Ta Ra Rum Pum?

Ranbir is great actor, with a great fan following. He can easily look like a 16 year old as well as a 30 year old. I do not consider him a newcomer. He has the potential and of course, tremendous acting talent in his genes. Ranbir suited the character more than Saif.

Did you conceive the film's title from the old R D Burman classic?

No. The song was thought of later. The very fact that the film has three leading ladies and one hero called for the title. This title aptly suited the theme of the film. Only after half the film was shot, we decided to add the song in it.

Did you cast Deepika because she is seeing Ranbir?

Ranbir and Deepika started seeing each other after the film was shot. According to me, a star's personal life makes no difference when it comes to making films.

They look good together onscreen and off-screen.

How was your experience working with the cast?

I was a wonderful experience. I generally become friends with my actors, and am more formal with my actresses.

I am in awe of Bipasha. Everyone will go weak on their knees on seeing her [in the film].

This film has a lot of resemblance to Shahid Kapur's Dil Maange More.

I have not watched that film, so I do not know if Bachna Ae Haseeno bears any resemblance to Dil Maage More.

Katrina was a part of the film too. Why was she dropped?

We had to drop Katrina because the film was getting too lengthy. The film was going way beyond three hours, and we did not want to extend it. That's why we dropped her. But I'm sure I will do a full-fledged film with her.

What do you have to say about the film's music?

Vishal and Shekhar have done an outstanding job with the music. I only hope the film does as well as the music. I am sure the music will be a hit. My favourite song is Khuda Jaane. The songs have been sung by Shankar Mahadevan , Sumit Kumar [son of Kishore Kumar], KK, Shekhar, Shilpa Rao, Himani Kapoor, Lucky Ali, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chuhan, Hard Kaur and Raja Hassan.

What do you think went wrong with Ta Ra Rum Pum?

I think people did not understand the message. They could not connect with poverty in a foreign land. That could be why it didn't work. Personally, I am very proud of the film.

Who do you think is to be blamed if a film does not do well?

The director. The film is the director's baby. If there is any mess anywhere, the director has to be blamed. If Bachna Ae Haseeno goes bad, please blame me.

Yash Raj Films have had quite a few flops recently. Do you think Bachna Ae Haseeno will do well?

It is not the banner's fault. You should blame the story. If the story isn't good, no banner can make the film a hit. YRF has taken a risk with Bachna Ae Haseeno.

What kind of films would you like to make?

I would like to do an action film. I tried different things with my earlier films. I want to move out of that and try a different genre.

Which actors would you like to work with?

Kapoor Bahu in the making: Deepika Padukone

With her very first film Om Shanti Om she has given Dard-e-Disco to millions of hearts. Right now undoubtedly she is the hottest face of Bollywood. TWF correspondent Sreya Basu catches up with Deepika Padukone in an exclusive tete-a-tete.

So post Om Shanti Om producers are running after you with bagful of roles and sackful of moolahs?
Yes I am getting my share of attention and quite a number of roles as well. But I have a long way to go and need to groom myself constantly to meet the expectations of my producers, directors and fans.

Don’t you think that your success was assured the moment you signed your first film opposite the box office badshah Shahrukh Khan?
I am really lucky that every thing fell in place perfectly in my very first step to Bollywood. Of course I will always remain indebted to director Farah Khan and Shahrukh for considering me for the film. But give me some credits as well (laughs).
In what ways have the film Om Shanti Om affected your private life?
I am still to register all that has happened to me post Om Shanti Om. The overnight fame, awards, millions of fan mails, interviews being taken, being called the ‘Bollywood sensation’…all these is new to me.

Despite being the daughter of badminton champ Prakash Padukone, and being a model for quite some time I was not used to so much media exposure and attention.

You too used to play badminton like your father. So why did you suddenly change the stream?
Initially I followed my father’s footsteps and started playing badminton. Most people do not know that I even played badminton at the national level. But after sometime I realised that my heart is on modelling.
But I never thought of becoming an actor at any point of my life. It was only from my second year in modelling that I started getting film offers. But I was only 18 then and decided not to jump into films till I am serious about it.
You are only 22. Don’t you miss doing normal things a girl of your age does?
I moved out of home in Bangalore to work in Mumbai at a tender age. So that naturally has made me a lot more mature than my contemporary girls. But there is a price to be paid for every thing. I do normal things and have a life outside the studios as well.

Your off-screen chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor is the most talked about affair at present. Any comments?
This is the first time I am truly in love and hence we decided not to hide our feelings from public. Being in love is the loveliest of feelings. Besides I am not a person who is frivolous in relationships.

But there were news of your multiple affairs. Even you broke off with Ranbir once before restarting your relationship!
As I told you this is the first time I am in love. Having lunch with someone doesn’t mean that I am having an affair with that person.deepika at IIFA
As for Ranbir and my relationship, initially we were good friends. But the media linked us together when we were not even sure of our feelings for each other. Before we could spend enough time together to sort out things we got busy with our debut films and hence parted.

It was only during shooting together for a flick Bachna Ae Hasenon in Australia that we got the chance to know each other and fell in love. But there is no baggage from the past, as we never parted bitterly. We started our relationship like two new people.
So when are you getting married?
Not in the next three years, at least.
Kapoor bahus are not allowed to work in films. So if asked will you quit your career for Ranbir?
It depends on the situation. Right now neither Ranbir, nor his family wants me to quit my career. So abhi se sochne ka kya fayda!
