Ashustosh Gowariker is one name to reckon in Bollywood. His last three movies have been fantastic to say the least. Each being a hallmark in its own right.

With Harman having a disastrous start to his career with Love Story 2050 and Victory, both being massive flops, surely Ashustosh Gowariker’s What’s Your Rashee will be something that Harman will be looking for to boost his career.

Ranjan Negi : Life Post Chak De India

Ranjan Negi’s real life story may have been Shimit’s and Jaideep Sahni’s inspiration to make Chak De India. But post Chak De India, Ranjan Negi’s story was just known in the hockey circuit. The movie made it sure that Ranjan Negi’s feats be acknowledged my the country.
Disappointed time and again by a game he so passionately lives for, Negi’s home went from light to dusk to stark black within no time.

That day in 2005, once again, his home was engulfed in the darkest darkness, oblivious to the dawn that was about to slip through a crack in the door — an offer from Yash Raj Films to coach the all-girl squad in hockey for Chak De! India

Today, two years hence, Negi has not only redeemed himself in hockey, he has also achieved what few 50-year-olds have been able to — fame, and some fabulous dance moves.

The ways of Negi’s life were strange from the very beginning. He’d be catapulted to success and almost immediately be unapologetically thrown back on the ground.

The defeat of the men’s hockey team in 1982, the charges of treachery, the victory lap as coach of the men’s hockey team that after 32 years won the Asian Games gold in 1998 and the women’s team that won the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games gold, the offer to coach the men’s Olympic squad, the dismissal soon after and the death of his son at the same time.

Hardened by fate and unable to pull away from his family that needed him the most at that time, Negi tried to duck the offer. But as usual, fate demanded more.

“I was emotionally blackmailed into taking up the offer from Yash Raj Films,” he remembers with a hint of smile in his voice, “One day when I visited the studio, Jaideep Sahni talked to me of his desire to revive women’s hockey through this film. Despite his contacts in the industry he hadn’t been able to generate even Rs 10,000 for the team.”

A few days before he was to meet Aditya Chopra, Negi woke up one night to find his wife missing. “I searched and found her in our son’s room, playing his instruments.”

This was a time of emotional turmoil, a time when the family needed to face harsh reality together. And so, Negi put forward a condition to Chopra — he would work with them only if his wife would be allowed at every shoot. It was shot down instantly. Family members were not allowed on the sets. Negi offered to quit and the condition was met.

Video : Scenes From Lagaan DVD

“Every Indian should have Lagaan DVD,” said , Aamir Khan at the launch of DVD/ VCD of Oscar nominated film Lagaan and the making of the movie titled Chale Chalo (directed by Satyajit Bhatkal) at an event in Mumbai yesterday. Aamir, along with director Ashutosh Gowarikar, Gracy Singh, Javed Akhtar, Satyajit Bhatkal and other members of the Lagaan team watched a special screening of Chale Chalo. “It brought tears to my eyes while watching Chale Chalo at several occasions,” he said.

Noted scriptwriter and lyricist Javed Akhtar summed up the Lagaan experience succinctly. “How time passes. Seven years have passed. In retrospect I have learnt how to write a script. For, here is a film that breaks all norms. When Ashutosh Gowarikar came to me first and narrated the script, I had tremendous sympathy and compassion for him. Here was a man planning to commit suicide. I sent an SOS to Aamir sahib stating the same. A film with a rural background, hero wearing a dhoti, rural folk music, heroine wrapped in a sari, cricket was a poison for box office….this film was exactly the opposite. But after Lagaan I have realized that there’s no formula, no law. Only law is instinct, passion and love for cinema. What is admirable is the passion, the junoon that went in making this film. Hats off to Aamir and his team for the junoon that is a rarity these days,” Akhtar said.

Aamir on his part as a producer clarified that he couldn’t release the DVD for six years after the release of the film as he was under a contract which stated that he can’t bring out the DVD of the film in the market for five years after the release of the film. “People say that I take a lot of time in taking decisions….Log kahte hain ki abhi tak soch raha hoga….but it was nothing of that sort,” Aamir said. And why did he choose Excel Home Videos? “I chose Excel because I wanted high quality. I also realized Excel can give me commitment, care and passion.”

Video : Shilpa Shetty and Richard Gere Kiss

Shilpa Shetty who suddenly came into the limelight and stormed the London and Indian markets after her Big Brother victory, is in news again. But this time it’s negative publicity. But as they say in Bollywood, any kind of publicity is always good.

From talking about India’s vastness and diversity to highlighting the increasing problem of HIV/AIDS in India, a cause that she is closely associated with, Shilpa Shetty has done it all.

However this time, the actress may receive less of bouquets for talking about HIV/AIDS, and get more brickbats for being kissed by Hollywood actor and AIDS activists Richard Gere.

At a function, held as a part of the ongoing Seena Taan Ke campaign by the Truckers Corporation of India Foundation (India’s largest surface transport organisation) to reduce unsafe sexual practices among the trucking community, Gere hugged and kissed Shilpa during the event Delhi on Sunday.

The act by Gere and Shilpa hasn’t gone down well with most of the Indian audience, and they demand an apology from both the actors.

Also present on the show was Bollywood actor Sunny Deol, who joined hands with Gere and Shilpa to instill in truckers a sense of pride in their work, raise their self-esteem and encouraged them to adopt healthy behaviour. But due to Shilpa and Gere’s kissing antics, Sunny Deol went totally unnoticed. Seems these are bad days for Sunny. Neither did his movie Big Brother get him the fame that Shilpa’s television Big Brother got. And now Shilpa has again stole the show from him :)
