Cannes 2013 Part 2

As Cannes continues we get to see more of Sonam, Vidya and Mallika.

Aishwarya and the directors of Bombay Talkies are also now in Cannes.

I have to say I am kind of getting tired of Sabyasachi.  It’s summer and all I see is back/maroon/brown/gold Sabyasachi creations! First Vidya and then Aishwarya.  Sonam is the only one who provided us with some summer color in her Dolce and Gabbana dress (the white one with flower print).  Plus Sonam’s jewellery is to die for! Her mom is a jewellry designer so I guess that is a given (pretty much every girls dream right?!).

Time to Hit the Road Kyunki Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara

Who says that Aamir Khan is the best at promoting his productions/films? Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are not far behind.  The founders of Excel Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. took the cast of their production Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara on a road trip.  The road trip was from Mumabi to Delhi, with stops in many cities in between.  Katrina Kaif, Abhay Deol, Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Zoya Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani were the travellers on this “promotion road”.  Kalki Koechlin joined them in Delhi.  Below are some pictures from the trip:

Farhan is going all out to see that his sister’s second directorial venture is a huge hit.  What a sweet brother!  I watched an interview of his in which he said the monsoons are supposed to bring prosperity so, I hope the monsoons bring the people to the theatres to watch ZNMD.  I really hope that it plays in my city because I have been waiting a while for this film.  I will be very disappointed if it does not play but if it does I’ll go first day, first show for sure.

ZNMD Promo – Kwahbon Ke Parinday/Music Review

If you have read my other posts on Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara then you know that I am VERY eagerly waiting for this movie’s release.  This song promo just makes me more impatient! Katrina and Hrithik’s chemistry is MIND BLOWING!!!  I always thought they should do a film together and now they finally are. 🙂 Besides Hrithik, the song is also very beautiful (hehe).  The music is so soft and subtle. Shankar Eshaan and Loy have outdone themselves with this album.  All the songs are unique and great listens.  I love Senorita, Dil Dhadakne Do, Ik Junoon (Paint It Red), Kwahbon Ke Parinday and Sooraj Ki Baahon Mein.  Which, is pretty much all the songs.  The lyrics are beautiful and the music complements them very well.  Shankar-Eshaan-Loy are master craftsmen (remember the music of Kal Ho Naa Ho, My Name Is Khan, etc?).  The music is not overly loud but rather is melodious.  It is albums like these that remind us why music is such an important part of Hindi cinema, because if the music is good it makes the film even better.

Here is the promo:

Senorita – New Song Promo From Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara

There was a sneak peak of this song in the theatrical trailer.  It has been sung by the three leads Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol.  I think they did a pretty good job and I have had this song on loop for almost 2 days now.  With every trailer I get more and more excited for this film.

Maybe if this song is successful, more actors will try singing in their films.

SRK Throws His BFF KJo a Birthday Party

KJo always says how SRK is such a great friend (like a brother from another mother).  Well, SRK showed he feels the same way about Karan by throwing KJo the party of the year.  The biggest stars in bollywood were present.  Here is a list of some of them and some possible awkward situations:

Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Karishma Kapoor – AWKWARD!!! Karishma and Abhishek were engaged at one time and ended their relationship on a sour note.  I’m sure not one of the three were delighted to see each other.

Shahid, Priyanka – I am not sure if this on again, off again couple are broken up yet again but if they are broken up then that just makes the situation weird!

Arjun Kapoor (Boney Kapoor’s son) and Mallaika Arora Khan – Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN reported in Open Magazine that these two were having an affair.  Soon after he reported this, Mallaika and Arbaz stopped making appearances together and rumours of a split up began circulating.  While Arbaaz insist all these rumours are false, if there is any truth to this then this would be a VERY awkward situation.

Other guests were Genilia D’Souza, Sanjay Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Abhishek Kapoor (director of Rock On!), Zoya Akhtar, Sajid Khan, Nadita Mehtani (designer and rumoured fiancee of Dino Morea), Dino Morea, Neelam Kothari, Ayan Mukerjee (director of Wake Up Sid), Rahul Khanna (swoon), Avantika Malik (Imran Khan’s wife and a make up disaster in this case), Farhan Akhtar, Raveena Tandon, Sonali Bendre, Goldie Behl (Sonali’s husband), Ekta Kapoor, John Abraham, Rani Mukerjee, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Punit Malhotra (director of I Hate Luv Storys) and Imran Khan.

Wow, what I wouldn’t do to be a fly on the wall at that party!!  Anyways, happy Bday KJo, hope the year brings you much love and success!
