Anurag Kashyap is a happy man. While his movies have always achieved critical acclaim, they have not necessarily sent the cash registers ringing. But with Gangs Of Wasseypur, Anurag Kashyap has managed to prove that he can make commercially successful films as well. The movie has managed to collect Rs. 17 crores in its first week only.
“We thought that people were liking the film, but in the first three days, we didn’t collect so much. But even that has been the biggest of my life. The kind of film this is and the kind of actors there are, the collection was big,” Anurag Kashyap said at the success party of the film.
Talking about crossing 100 crores at the box office, "100 crore is too much of an expectation. If it happens, it is good. All I want is whoever has worked in the film should earn a lot of money. It is a film where barring Manoj, people don’t know anyone. In addition, the film had everything going against it – the two parts, one part being an incomplete story, the kind of language and adult certificate. People see the negative points more. So, even if we don’t cross Rs 100 crore, it is fine with us,” he said.

A few months back, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor were the buzz in tinsel town. Their romance was the talk of Bollywood. But just within a flash the news spread out that they are no longer couples.
Deepika Padukone, in a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror revealed the reason why she broke up with Ranbir Kapoor. The super hot beauty said that she was not very happy with Ranbir’s conduct with other women. This left her feeling insecure.
Here is what Deepika, who is rumored to have broken up with Ranbir because of his closeness to Katrina Kaif during the filming of Rajneeti, had to say: “If my man gives me my security, why would I be possessive? Then I wouldn’t ask him where he is, what he is doing or even who he is with. If my partner is doing things, which betray my trust, then I will become possessive. You become possessive only when you know there’s something going wrong, not just for the heck of it. It’s not about the kind of person I am, it’s about the person I am with.”

Ayesha Takia must have broken a million hearts when she decided to tie the knot with her long time boyfriend Farhan Azmi. The cute damsel is now back from her honeymoon and here is her latest interview for all you readers.
So how was the Honeymoon trip?
“We went all over Europe for our honeymoon. Farhan (her hubby) knows London well because he studied there. We relaxed, walked the streets, went into cosy cafes. Now we’re back in the heat of Mumbai,” says Ayesha.
So how is she finding life after marriage?
“Honestly, I can’t see the difference between before and after the wedding. My husband Farhan Azmi has been an integral part of my family for five years now. I’ve no close friends. For me, my mom and sister are the closest people in my life.”
Even now, Ayesha and her husband spend more time with Ayesha’s family than with Farhan’s!
“That hasn’t changed. I was without my mom and sister for a month. Now again, we’re together doing what we always did, chatting, joking, and having fun while mom cooks for all of us. Since Farhan has been part of my family, I can’t remember what my life was like before him.”
After winning accolades and awards for the historic film Jodha Akbar, Ashutosh Gowariker is back with a rather light film. The movie titled What's Your Rashee

Aditya Pancholi and Kangana Ranaut have finally split ways. And it is time to throw around the muck. Aditya Pancholi reveals in an interview the bad side of the sweet innocent looking Kangana Ranaut.
“We have stopped seeing one another for a while now. Some time back she called me to say she wanted money, about Rs 1 crore, to buy a house. (This, after she had complained against me to the police.) I called up a banker-friend and stood as her guarantor and got her a loan of Rs 50 lakh.
Then, I gave her Rs 55 lakh cash from my pocket. Of this, she has returned Rs 25 lakh. She still owes me Rs 30 lakh. I’ve also spent Rs 10 lakh on her sister’s plastic surgery, after the acid attack. But I’m not asking for that back. I paid all the bills. When Mukesh Bhatt asked back for her signing amount of Rs 50,000, I paid that for her too. I’ve written all that off. But I’d like to have the money that I lent her for her house.”
The bitterness has now made way for a calmer acceptance of the situation. He says, “We were as good as husband and wife. I was actually building a house for both of us on Yari Road. We lived together for three years at a friends’ place. I used to show her a lot of movies.” He continues, “Kangana didn’t have a penny when I met her. I saw her the first time on the road. She was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. It was June 27, 2004. She was drenched, and sitting on a bike with a guy from the Asha Chandra Acting Institute. I was supervising the construction of a building.
Kangana Ranaut And Aditya Pancholi's Relationship
Aishwarya Rai is perhaps in one of the best phases of her life both professionally and personally. Her marriage into the Bachchan family has bought in a lot of happiness in her life. Also professionally her movies are doing great. what with her last three movies, Guru, Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar declared as super hits.
But post marriage with Abhishek Bachchan , Aishwarya has been pretty choosy about the roles she accepts. She reportedly turned down Karan Johar's offer
to be in his next flick titled Dostana, as she thought it was too bold for her to do post marriage.
Here's an exclusive interview with Aishwarya Rai about why she rejected a great role opposite hubby Abhishek and John Abraham in Karan Johar's Dostana. Aishwarya also talks about her upcoming projects like director Mani Shankar's Robot
First things first. Did you turn down Karan Johar’s Dostana?
Yes. I opted out of Dostana because the inter-personal relationships among the three of us made me uncomfortable. Now that Abhishek and I are married the kind of quirky situations shown in Dostana, albeit in a comic vein, wouldn’t have worked.
But Dhoom and Jodhaa-Akbar worked although you were paired with Hrithik and not Abhishek?
But Dhoom happened before the marriage and there was no triangle in Jodhaa-Akbar. Now the audience can’t see me sharing my affections for Abhishek with another guy. I can’t tell you why it wouldn’t have worked for me and Abhishek as a pair without giving away the plot. Karan Johar wasn’t bothered with all these personal considerations. But I felt otherwise. I thought the audience would wonder, ‘She likes John and Abhishek equally? No way!’
Now you’ll be romancing Rajnikanth in Shankar’s Robot?
It’s a total Rajni/Shankar styled entertainer. There’s no logic to why I agreed to do it beyond the urge to work with Rajnikanth. Shankar and Rajni Sir have approached me for so many films
, it’s embarrassing. Ever since Jeans (Shankar directed the film), Shankar’s approached me for all his films except Boys. Rajni Sir approached me for his last five films. My refusal to do his films was never misconstrued by him. I admire him for never taking offence to my refusal. It speaks volumes about his seniority.
Dostana Too Hot For Aishwarya To Handle
Normally stars like to keep their love affairs all hushed up and under wraps. But newcomers Deepika Padukone
and Ranbir Kapoor seem to have no qualms to publicly declare their love for each other. After Ranbir Kapoor expressed his feelings
for Deepika in an interview, it was Deepika's turn to reciprocate.
How did your romance with Ranbir begin?
We met while we were shooting for our respective debut films (Om Shanti Om and Saawariya). At that point of time it was very different because he hadn’t been in the limelight at all. It was a completely new thing for him whereas I was used to it, having been a model. We were both very involved with our films then. So we didn’t really get too much time to spend with each other. We went our separate ways after our movies were released and we just disconnected. Then we got together again when we were doing Siddharth’s (Anand, director) movie (Yash Raj Films). We were together for a month and that’s when it started.

What's New In Amisha's Love Life
Vidya Balan may have had a super hit in Sajid Khan's Heyy Babyy but more than her acting it was her wardrobe that made more news. The ghastly costumes that Vidya adorned in Heyy Babyy drew some rather harsh comments from the critics and a big thumbs down from her fans.
Even Shahrukh Khan and Saif embarassed an almost about to cry Vidya Balan at the Filmfare Awards by awarding her a Na-Real Award for Worst Wardrobe. Vidya Balan who was mega embarassed at her wardrobe being ridiculed about shifted the blame onto her director Sajid Khan and her fashion designer Manish Malhotra.
Manish Malhotra was taken aback by Vidya Balan putting the blame on him. Says a furious Manish, who is currently in Milan, “In my 17-year career as a designer, never before has any actress made such an issue about it.
She has been blaming me for her bad outfits and I have been quiet for a year. Not any more! Vidya has been talking about me at public events.
She feels I gave her a bad look in Heyy Babyy! Pray what about the make-up, hair and outfit (Abu-Sandeep) she sported at the Filmfare awards? It was something like what people used to wear in the 1980s! And what were those horrible gaudy tassels that were hanging down her dress?” he sneers.
Manish adds sarcastically, “According to her, I screwed up her style. If she thought my styling wasn’t right, why didn’t she put her foot down or simply call me and say ‘Manish, please send something else?’”
