The latest buzz is that an insecure Salman Khan called up Rajkumar Santoshi and asked him to drop Shahid Kapur from the Shahid-Katrina Kaif.
Recently, Salman was upset with Katrina for signing a film with Shahid Kapur. A little birdie tells us, “Salman Khan told Santoshi to drop Shahid! He does not want Katrina to do a film with Shahid.
Salman Khan is unhappy with Katrina making her own career decisions. Our source says, “Because of Salman, Katrina was able to establish herself as an actress.
Few know that when an unknown Katrina came to Mumbai, she was first introduced to Govinda by Boney Duggal. But somehow film offers did not materialise for Govinda then.
Duggal then introduced Katrina to Salman. And she has clung to him ever since then.”
Our birdie further says that Santoshi has plans to approach Ranbir Kapoor for the same film. “Santoshi is keen to approach Ranbir for Shahid’s role,” reveals a source.
Will the director replace Shahid with Ranbir? Rajkumar Santoshi diplomatically replies, “I am still working on the script! Once it is ready, I will decide on the cast of my film. The only thing I can say is that Shahid and I are keen to work together but right now Ashoka is the focus of my attention. I want to finish that film first. I will start work on this film later.”
When asked if Salman has forced the director to change the male lead of his film, Santoshi says, “Salman is a thorough gentleman. He never indulges in petty politics! I have worked with Salman before and I know the kind of person he is! Salman will never interfere with a director’s casting decisions.
While Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor went all public on a chat show with their likings and disliking about Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina prefers to keep mum. The actress does not like entertaining questions regarding her ex Ranbir Kapoor.
Katrina Kaif allegedly declined Ayaan Mukherjee’s next film as Ranbir Kapoor was cast opposite her in the lead. Reportedly Katrina clarified that she opted out due to date problems, but preferred not to answer any questions on Ranbir Kapoor.
Bollywood bad boy Salman Khan indeed proved himself really a bad boy with his third girl friend Katrina Kaif departing from him. Even before, he finds his 4th one Katrina has proved she is too fast and smart to trap her second one Ranbir in no time.
Now, she not only glued to this chocolate boy Ranbir all the time, but also recommends him for all her films. When, directors and producers approach her with Salman films, she is spitting fire on them. She says that, she is no more interested to act with him and if any one comes with such proposals, she threatens to put them in black list.
On the other hand, she is insisting her new boy friend Ranbir to handle the bad boy Salman in his own style, which he honestly agrees is a difficult task for him. It is learnt that, though he is interested in her he is not in a position to marry her as he is facing stiff resistance from his family members. But, if he prolongs their affair few more weeks or months, undoubtedly this hot chick Katrina is going to jump for some other guy who has guts to tie holy knots in her neck. Anyway, she also very well knew that her chocolate boy can’t handle the six-packed bad boy Salman Khan. But, she has to glue to him until she finds another six-packed. Perhaps, like John Abraham who is looking for a new girl friend?
Rumours say he is still sulking over the alleged break-up
While Katrina and those close to her have maintained that she and Salman are friends, recent reports suggest otherwise. According to a tabloid, Salman isn’t exactly happy with the way she is being linked up with Ranbir Kapoor.
It is a bit hard to believe, but apparently he is making sure that Kat’s soaring career is affected. Apparently, he is asking those close to him not to work with Katrina. Two such examples are that of ‘Ready’ where Salman got Zarine Khan a cameo when the role demanded an A-lister and Kat could have easily fit in. The reports also say he has asked Kabir Khan that he would not want to work with Katrina in his film.
Now, we all know the clout that Salman has in the industry but will he be this vengeful? Of course, nobody has quite forgotten the way he took digs at her in Bigg Boss. Some suggest it is because he has done a lot of help Katrina find a footing in the industry and indeed, she owes a lot of her success to him.
But the Salman the world knows is the one with the large heart and he would be there for his ex-ladylove if she ever needs him.
There was a time when Salman and Katrina hogged limelight for their steady relationship, but post their splitsville, they are hitting the bull's eye for not being with each other.
According to the multiple tabloid reports, Katrina is quite unenthusiastic about working with her ex beau, Salman Khan, in Yash Raj Films' forthcoming project, and wants to work with either Shahrukh Khan or Hrithik Roshan.
SRK and Hrithik turned down the offer Well, Katrina was roped in as the female lead in Yash Raj Films' new venture, to be directed by 'New York' fame director Kabir Khan and SRK was the initial choice. However, due to “date problems”, he refused the project.
Similar was the situation with the second choice, Hrithik Roshan. And finally, the filmmaker approached Salman Khan for the same.
Interestingly, Salman Khan did not refuse the venture, rather he's adjudicating the price with the production house. And if all turns out well, then Salman and Katrina will soon be seen sharing the silver screen.
An industry insider revealed, "Katrina has worked with Salman before. She was looking forward to working with some new actors. Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan would've been a great opportunity, she thought.”
We completely understand your stance Katrina. Hope Ranbir is fine with this?
Katrina tired of her link-ups with RK Pissed off with the reports about her link-ups with Ranbir Kapoor, Bollywood bombshell Katrina Kaif rubbished the reports and alleged that there are no photographic evidence related with it.
And surprisingly, Mumbai Mirror disclosed certain pictures showcasing the Kapoor lad and the Sheila lasso enjoying date at a 5-star hotel in Santacruz East.
Though there were no confirmation reports by the duo, no wonder, what they have to say about this.
Well, Kat, as a suggestion, you should never under-estimate media.
Changing partners is very oldy vogue in Bollywood and when it comes to super-spoilt-stars like Salman, the trend hits its most effective zone. Thus when the news of Salman adding spice to his life with the Brazilian model Bruna broke out, Katrina felt alarmed.
But Katrina must have taken a sigh of relief after Brazilian model Bruna dismissed the rumours about her relationship with Salman Khan. The model turned VJ has stated that there’s nothing cooking up between her and Bollywood’s spoiled brat Sallu Mia.
The gimmicky date between Salman and Bruna fueled up more after the news of Salman again slapping Katrina on the sets of Subash Ghai’s Yuvraj hit the media.
But Bruna had quoted that Salman is totally devoted towards Katrina, who had been with Salman whenever she met him.
Meanwhile, Bruna also added that she is involved in a relationship with a restaurateur named Sunny who owns two resto-lounges in Mumbai.
Apart from Subash Ghai’s Yuvraj, Katrina is also busy shooting for Siingh Is King with Akshay Kumar and Rajkumar Santohi’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
But all the while bechari Katrina’s concentration has more been with her flamboyant boyfriend. And with such a confirmation from Bruna herself, Katrina can now peacefully pose her gaud for her directors.
Well, the relief for Katrina is for sure, if in the meanwhile Sallu doesn’t get anyone else worth gazing at!
Like her beau Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif too has plans to launch her own fashion line.
Katrina, unarguably one of the best-looking actresses in Bollywood, has been known for her fashion sense. Now, she is set to share her fashion tastes with her fans through a fashion line in her name.
However, the actress won’t be designing all her clothes. She plans to tie up with designer Rocky S . Katrina and Rocky S have worked together for a long time. They together designed her outfits in Namastey London and also did shopping for her costumes in the upcoming film Singh Is Kinng . Katrina says Rocky understands her fashion style very well.
The line that Katrina plans to launch with Rocky will have both Indian and Western outfits. Even Kat’s boyfriend Salman Khan plans to launch his fashion line with his sister Alvira. Bipasha Basu has also expressed her interest in launching her own clothes line. However, she is averse to the idea of roping in a designer for her fashion line. She wants to design herself.
Well, who says good-looking people don’t have talent?
Rumours are that Salman Khan is not too happy with Katrina Kaif working with certain co-stars.
Buzz is that due to this, Salman insists on accompanying Katrina for most of her film assignments.
Salman even recently even accompanied Katrina for the dubbing sessions of Namaste London which has Akshay Kumar opposite Katrina.
Sources claim that Salman is not too happy with Katrina working with certain co-stars and that is why he seen tagging along with her for her shoots.
Is Salman feeling insecure about his beautiful girlfriend?
'Not at all, claims an insiders and adds "Salman is merely being extremely supportive of Katrina’s Bollywood career."
At the dubbing of ‘Namaste London’ Salman was reportedly giving Katrina tips on voice modulation and emoting in Hindi.
Sources also claim that Salman has done a cameo in the film and he is extremely interested with the way Katrina’s character shapes up.
Katrina is seen playing a character, which is similar to her real life character as she plays a girl who hails from London in the film.
Director Vipul Shah confirms Salman's presence on location.
"He has been coming to dubbing sessions but he has been interested in the project right from the beginning. Katrina is a crucial part of the film and she is playing a character that is close to her as she hails from London," he said.
Salman and Shahrukh make Katrina’s birthday special
Katrina Kaif’s birthday on Saturday was made special by both Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. How? Read on...
Katrina herself had no plan to party on her birthday on July 16. But on the eve of her birthday, she met up with both Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. Katrina promoted the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara on Friday evening and then went to an Oshiwara pub where she is reported to have met Salman Khan. After meeting Salman, Katrina headed for a special screening of the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara organized by Shahrukh Khan at his residence Mannat.
The screening was followed by an impromptu party to celebrate Katrina’s birthday. Everyone from the film -- Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol -- enjoyed fully.
But that was not it. We hear that the next day, Katrina’s birthday, she was invited to Salman Khan’s residence Galaxy Apartments for a lunch. Katrina reportedly spent quality time with the Khans and pampered her taste buds without thinking about her diet regimen going for a toss.
It was her birthday and the lady was in a mood to let go. What’s worth appreciating is that it was made special by both Shahrukh and Salman who, we all remember, had ruined her birthday bash in 2008 by their fight. One only wishes Shahrukh and Salman too had shaken hands and come together on this birthday of Katrina. Well, next time, may be.
'Aaya Re Aaya Bodyguard'....that's the item song which Katrina would be joyously gyrating to in Bodyguard. Even as Katrina gears up for the challenge of outdoing her 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' number she has a bigger challenge to meet up to.
Salman Khan aka the King Of All He Surveys, will also be part of the song. Apparently, he reasoned that since the song is about his character, Bodyguard ka hona to haq banta hai, boss. Now Ganesh Acharya has been asked to incorporate Salman into Katrina's elaborate item number.
Apparently, Salman wants the number structured like 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' where Akshay Kumar joins Katrina. That is easier said than done.
Says a source, "Salman likes to do his own thing in the dance numbers. Everyone knows in 'Munni Badnaam' he didn't follow Farah Khan's instructions. Katrina will be rigorously rehearsing her steps for 'Aaya Re Aaya Bodyguard'. She wants it to be as perfect as 'Sheila Ki Jawaani'. Salman's improvisations are bound to distract her. But the there is not much she can do about it. Because as Salman pointed out the song is about him, so he has to be part of it."
Bodyguard producer Atul Agnihotri confirms that Salman would be part of Katrina's item number.
Salman Khan takes a keen interest in Katrina’s bollywood career
Salman Khan is up to his old antics once again, he seems to be tagging along everywhere that girlfriend Katrina Kaif goes. On most of her film shoots, Salman is always seen accompanying the actress. Is Salman feeling insecure that his beautiful girlfriend will be working opposite some of the most eligible actors in bollywood or is he merely taking a keen interest in his girl’s career? However Salman is doing his best to encourage Katrina’s budding career in bollywood.
According to sources, Salman has been seen accompanying Katrina during most of her shoots; he recently even accompanied her for the dubbing sessions of Namastey London. Sources claim that Salman is not too happy with Katrina working with certain co-stars and that is why he seen tagging along with her for her shoots. However others claim that Salman is merely being extremely supportive of Katrina’s bollywood career. In fact Salman was the one to give Katrina’s bollywood career a boost after her debut film Boom flopped. Katrina was seen in Salman’s home production alongside the actor. Salman also tried to replace his co-star Priyanka Chopra in Rajkumar Santoshi’s film with Katrina.
Katrina will be dubbing for the first time for her film Namastey London herself which is claimed to be a remake of Purab Aur Paschim. Salman is reportedly giving Katrina tips on voice modulation and emoting in Hindi. Salman has seen most of Namastey London and is hoping that this film will give Katrina’s career in bollywood a boost. Sources also claim that Salman has done a cameo in the film and he is extremely interested with the way Katrina’s character shapes up. Katrina is seen playing a character which is similar to her real life character as she plays a girl who hails from London in the film. Director Vipul Shah confirms that Salman has taken a very keen interest in the film right from the beginning and hence he often accompanies Katrina to dubbing sessions.
After Shahid and Kareena another cute bollywood jodi is heading for a split. According to latest buzz things are not going well for Salman and Katrina and after almost two years of togetherness the duo has decided to call it quits.
The couple had been arguing and fighting a lot in recent times and it all started at Sallu's birthday bash this January. He had pushed Katrina aside when she tried to stop him from drinking too much. Then, Salman's excessively possessive behaviour just made things worse.
We hear that Salman hadserious reseravtions about Katrina's hit jodi with Akshay Kumar and then he went furious when she signed Rajkumar Santoshi's film with Shahid Kapoor too.
Katrina found herself in a very awkward situation, thanks to Sallu's possessiveness. An insider claims, “After seeing the promos of Welcome, Sallu called up Nadiadwala and demanded that some changes be made.
He categorically told Feroze that he was unhappy that Katrina's skirts were really short, and that he didn't want him to publicise the film that way.”
Nadiadwala immediately called up Katrina to tell her about Salman's phone call. Katrina told Nadiadwala that he need not make any changes as she was quite comfortable with whatever she had worn in his film.
The source also reveals that last week things worsened between the couple when Salman called Katrina up to question her about the films she’s been signing with stars he’s not comfortable with. This upset Katrina and she banged down the phone on him.
Salman was hurt by her behaviour and cancelled his shooting. After that, he tried calling her but she didn’t take his calls.
Both Salman and Katrina were unavailable for the comments.
Salman KhanBollywood superstar Salman Khan has reportedly replaced Kareena Kapoor by Katrina Kaif for his next film. Salman's brother Sohail Khan was planning a film revolving around a wedding and he finalized his brother and Kareena for the film.
So Kareena was earlier set to play the female lead in Sohail's film My Punjabi Nikah and supposedly it was Salman who suggested Kareena's name for the film. Kareena and Salman are said to be friends and they get along quite well. They have also done a film, Kyon Ki together and although the film was a flop their pairing was appreciated.
Salman is known to also promote his friends careers and Kareena being a friend he recommended her name for the film. However, now it seems Salman has probably changed his mind and decided that Katrina should be paired opposite him in the film. So when it came to choosing between friendship and love, obviously Salman an emotional guy chose love, hands down.
So, Kareena has now been replaced with Katrina. Salman and Katrina were seen together in brother Sohail Khan's production Maine Pyar Kyon Kiya and the film too was quite a hit.
My Punjabi Nikah is centered around the theme of marriage and Sohail probably hopes that both Salman and Katrina will be inspired by his film to actually tie the knot in real life too.
It’s not a secret that Bollywood handsome hero Salman Khan, who is known as ‘Bollywood bad boy’, has been romancing with Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif for a long time. Bollywood media is buzzing that now they were separated due to differences. This is where, Bollywood sex bomb Rakhi Sawanth has entered the scene. She has expected that her sensational realty show ‘Rakhi ka Swayamvar’ may flood her with Bollywood offers. But, it remains a dream for her and she is still striving for film offers.
Rakhi, who is aware of their separation, plans to utilise this opportunity wisely and takes Salman Khan’s side. In a recent press meet Rakhi Sawanth said, “I personally know Salman is a gentleman. When, Katrina Kaif enters the industry, Salman has helped her lot all the way to reach this present status. In the beginning, Katrina also made rounds around Salman Khan for film offers. But, when she reached top position, she now finds wrong with Salman khan and bid good bye to him. Is this fair for her? “
“This is not first or last time for Salman Khan. He has been cheated by several girls in the past. Earlier, there were number of girls who were very eager to hold his hands only to find their way into industry. Later, all those girls depart from him. Katrina despite knowing him for several years separates from him for unknown reasons. She also utilises his popularity and influence to climb the ladder and kicks it now. Frankly speaking Katrina Kaif is also an opportunist. Salman always remain generous with such persons. He has no complaints about anyone in the industry. I strongly believe that he is one of the best in Bollywood.”
Can she please and trap Salman Khan with her praising?
Salman makes way for Ranbir and Imran at the Box Office
Bollywood has seen industry heavyweights clashing at the Box Office time and again. Aamir Khan-Sunny Deol and Ajay Devgn-Akshay Kumar have had their blockbusters released on the same day several times. And now it’s the turn of the Tinsel Town kiddies.
Imran Khan’s ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ and Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Rockstar’ is slated to release on 9th September. The Kapoor kid’s film was earlier planned for an Eid release along with Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’. But considering Sallu’s previous Eid releases, ‘Wanted’ and ‘Dabangg’, producers of ‘Rockstar’ decided to push back its release.
Talking to a daily, a source close to the Ranbir starrer film said, “Imtiaz Ali who is working with AR Rahman on the music of ‘Rockstar’ had to push his release date back from July. The producers apparently, decided they would either come with Salman Khan`s ‘Bodyguard’ on Eid (August-end) or a fortnight after that. The trade advised them not to clash with ‘Bodyguard’ because Salman`s last two Eid releases ‘Wanted’ and ‘Dabangg’ have proved that he is invincible at that point.”
However, Yash Raj scion Aditya Chopra had decided much earlier on the date of release of his film ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’.
Interestingly, ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ has Ranbir’s ex-ladylove Katrina Kaif romancing his foe-turned friend and competitor Imran, while ‘Rockstar’ will see RK romancing Nargis Fakhri.
Who will shine brighter at the Box-Office? Ranbir or Imran?
Katrina flies to London to find cure for her broken heart
Bollywood bombshell Katrina Kaif took off to London recently for a short while. Her friends insist it was due to work she was travelling to London. However, buzz is she went to London to spend time with her family as she really needed a change of mind to uplift her spirits and feel better after her break off with Ranbir Kapoor.
A friend of the actress said to a daily, “She is heartbroken. She needed time to recover from the depression. Her family`s concern was obvious and they ordered her home. Even before she left, she remained confined to her house.” The fact that both her relationships with prolific stars haven`t worked out “is hurting her to no end,’ says the friend.
Katrina was in a relationship with Bollywood’s dabangg star Salman Khan for a long time until she broke off with him and started dating the Casanova of B-town Ranbir Kapoor.
But their love did not last long as junior Kapoor is a compulsive flirt, who does not want to be leashed by any woman just yet in his life. This sure has left Katrina heartbroken. And in times like this, family is the best one looks up to.
However Katrina maintains, “I was in London for an event of an airline I endorse.” The actress returned on Tuesday and is shooting in Agra for Yash Raj`s ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’.
