Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya
is as all set for release tomorrow. Tomorrow will decided the fate of the acting career of Ranbir Kapoor
and Sonam Kapoor's
acting career. Apart from Ranbir and Sonam, Salman Khan and Rani Mukherjee
also make a special appearance in the film. Here is an exclusive interview of Salman Khan with Screen India talking about his future plans and about his role in Bhansali's Saawariya.
After giving you a miss in Devdas, how did Sanjay Leela Bhansali convince you for Saawariya?
Sanjay Leela Bhansali just called me up one day and told me he was making a love story and wanted me to be a part of it. Before that we were to work on Bajirao Mastani but there were some date problems and the film got postponed. SLB decided to direct the love story with Sonam and Ranbir Kapoor first.
Your character in the film remains a dark mystery still.
I play a Muslim character called Iman. I love the name because my father wants to name my son Iman. You know it sounds good, Salim, Salman and Iman! But I would love to call my son prince Salim or Changez Khan (laughs). Iman is a mind-blowing character. He is a little khadus, speaks harshly but there's a lot of humour in him. He is romantic and flirtatious.
This is your third film with SLB. How has your association changed over the years?
I remember he came to me with Khamoshi - The Musical when nobody was willing to do his film. When I read the script I realised it was not commercially viable, but I loved it anyway. I had nothing much to do in the film but I took it up only because of the script. I incorporated humour in my character which SLB didn't like because he wanted my character to be serious. Eventually, he shot both ways and on the editing table liked my light-hearted character and retained it. SLB hasn't changed at all. Even when he didn't have a penny in his pocket he made lavish films and he's doing that even today. Many a times he goes over-budget and it shows in the film. It shows what a fine technician and director he is.
With Saawariya and Om Shanti Om (OSO) releasing on the same day, don't you think it will cut into each other's collections?
No, I think it's a good thing for both the films. If Saawariya came first, it would have affected OSO and vice versa. In any case I have a special appearance in OSO, so it's good for me that are both releasing simultaneously. I am concerned though for Ranbir and Sonam as they are both simply fantastic. God forbid, if the film doesn't do well they can take heart that they were pitted against a SRK starrer and start again.

The former Miss India who jumped into the world of Bollywood hasn't found much success with her films in tinsel town. Life hasn't been so easy for Tanushree as far as her career goes. Apart from her debut film, Aashiq Banaya Aapn, no other film of the sultry beauty has managed to make it big at the box office. Her this year's two releases Dhol and Raqeeb have been washouts at the box office. Tanushree has seriously got to do something about getting out of the sex girl image and give acting a serious shot.
Here is an exclusive interview with Tanushree Dutta, in which she reveals about her future plans, about her love life too and whether she has any marriage plans.
Rumours suggest that you are back with your old lover Aditya Dutta. Tell us the truth?
I am really tired of hearing this trash. There is no substance in all these false allegations. I just have friendly relations with him and that's it. Next question please...
But isn't your reunion with Aditya gives enough fodder to this rumour?
There is no bar on speculations. If someone misunderstands our friendship for love affair, I just can't do anything about it. So the best thing is to keep mum.
So what's your take on love now?
I don't have time for love at this moment. I am single and definitely not ready to mingle with anyone. Falling in love again and again is not my cup of tea. I want to concentrate on my work assignments at this point of time.
Chak De India
has become this year's biggest hit. Not only is it running to packed theatres, it has also won the critics over completely. The Chak De song has become an anthem of sorts for all sport events.
One man though who will be ruing the success of Chak De India
, will be Salman Khan. The actor was initally offered to play Kabir Khan's role in the film, but he refused it as he wasn't pleased with the climax. Shah Rukh Khan grabbed the role and the rest as they say is history.
Salman Khan rues his decision and candidly explains what prompted him to commit the gaffe.
“I had an issue with the climax of the film. Adi in fact told me that he would make this [the film] into the biggest hit and you don’t know what you are missing out on,” he says
“I was fortunate that ‘Partner’ did as well.
Shahid Kapoor is a dejected man. Having lost his love Kareena Kapoor while he was off in Toronto shooting for Lucky Charm
, Saif stole his love from him. Shaihd could do nothing but accept this harsh fact.
Shahid who had been quite until now opened up in an interview with a national daily, days after his former love Kapoor confirmed that their four-year relationship had ended and she was seeing someone else.
He said it upsets him to see photographs of Kareena with her new flame, actor Saif Ali Khan.
“It will be dishonest to say that this doesn't affect me. I am human, it hurts to see and read this all the time,” he said.
“I guess I have no choice but to live and deal with it,” Shahid added.
He also said he wishes Kareena happiness and is trying to move on.

The bold Kareena Kapoor who was shying from the media regarding rumors of her affair with Saif Ali Khan is now taking it in her stride. Here is an interesting interview of Kareena Kapoor with Khalid Muhammed in which she talks about her past love Shahid Kapoor, her upcoming movie Jab We Met
with Shahid Kapoor and about the new man in her life : Saif Ali Khan.
Define your relationship with Saif Ali Khan.
There’s great chemistry between us.
What yes? He’s a great co star, a friend.. I’ve known him for a while of course.. but I got to know him really well only when we were shooting for Tashan in Ladakh..we hung out together.. today we hang out at coffee shops and restaurants. Is that a crime? So much noise was made about us being together at a Delhi discotheque. With my brother-in-law (Sanjay Kapur) there, what do you think we were doing? Eating dinner, laughing and hanging out..
Didn’t you delete photos of Saif and you at this restaurant?
Sanjay was upset because we weren’t being allowed our privacy.. so he and I.. and the others asked the photographer.. to please allow us our evening out.
Is Saif Ali Khan boyfriend material?
What? (Pause) Ha, ha, ha.
What does that mean?
It means I just went ha ha ha.. give me a break.. Khaled.
It’s Khalid. What about Shahid Kapur and you now?
What about Shahid Kapur and you now?
We’ve been together for four and a half years.. and things between us are just not the way they are being reported. I will not say anything to anyone.. I am all set to promote our film Jab We Met .. it’s really a lovely romantic film.. but I’ll be making it very clear, “No personal questions please.”
Farah's one busy mom, what with Om Shanti Om releasing in a month's time and with the fact that she is expecting not one, not two but three kids . Yes, if you hadn't known then Farah Khan is expecting triplets.
So with one film and three kids to deliver, Farah has a big task at hand. And what does she want, boys or girls? Two boys and one girl, that's what Farah wants. With the kind of luck, she has, do not be surprised if Farah's wish becomes true.
Here's Farah Khan's interview with Mumbai Mirror where she talks about her married life, Om Shanti Om and her expected triplets.
• Did the news of triplets come as a pleasant surprise?
Yes. At 40, I didn't know whether I'd have even one kid. At 43, I'm going to have three. It's not something that I was dying for, but now that I'm expecting, I like the idea. For Shirish (Kunder, her husband, maker of Jaan-E-Man), who's an introvert, the idea of having a big family is even more important.
• Was it Shirish who wanted kids, then?
Yeah, he told me right at the outset that I should see him only if I were ready to get married and have kids. He asked me not to do 'time-pass' with him. Left to myself, I'd have happily settled for just such a time-pass relationship.
• How does he handle a high profile wife, who always speaks her mind and has Shah Rukh Khan for her best friend?
He doesn't care. He doesn't talk much because he doesn't feel the need to express his opinions, that's all. Also, being eight years younger to me, he comes from a more irreverent generation. I'm the conservative, sometimes I get shocked at the amount of money he asks for his work. But he goes ahead and gets these huge amounts.
• Have you both thought of working together, as in making a film together?
No thanks. Shirish would kill me if we worked together. His vision is completely different from mine, and he's so dominating. We almost killed each other when I choreographed for him for Jaan-E-Man.
• Are you shopping for the kids?
I'm not allowed to go shopping. Kids apart, I need maternity clothes for myself too. Karan (Johar) is doing that for me. He travels a lot, and travels with my list. Recently he called me from London, saying that he couldn't believe he was standing in the lingerie department of Marks & Spencer, buying maternity bras for me!
• Isn't Shirish shopping?
I've told Shirish to hang on, otherwise he'll go berserk, shopping. And he hasn't the faintest idea of what to get. He's buying things like computers, etc - for the kids.
• That's an exaggeration.
It isn't! The other day, he actually bought a keyboard for the kids. I'm trying to tell him that the kids are going to be very small for a while!
• How excited is your brother Sajid?
Sajid is now too excited about the success of his film, Heyy Babyy, to think or talk of anything else.
