Drumming up the tempo

A magical spell was cast on the people who were present at a luxury hotel in Mumbai where the cast and crew of the upcoming family entertainer Aladin directed by Sujoy Ghosh, came together to launch the music of this eagerly awaited film.
Gracing the music launch was Amitabh Bachchan himself, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sunil Lulla and Biren Ghose of Eros International, director Sujoy Ghosh, music directors Vishal-Shekhar and singers Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan.
Sanjay Dutt could not make it due to prior commitments, but he addressed the crowds and wished the team good luck through a special AV clip. Actor Sahil Khan who also stars in the film came to cheer the team.
Despite the event taking place on the occasion of Dasara, the media turned out in full force to get a glimpse of the stars who made a joint appearance for the first time. Needless to say, the guests at the launch were yet again impressed by the excellent music score given by the talented duo Vishal-Shekhar, which consists mostly of peppy numbers.  The romantic track ‘You May Be’ in which Riteish serenades Jacqueline also happens to be the personal favourite of the Sujoy, Riteish and Jacqueline.
Big B who plays a genie called Genius, also said a few words on his experience of working on this movie. Riteish Deshmukh, known for his wit had the crowd in splits with his one-liners. However on a serious note, he shared his experience on working in this movie and fulfiling his life-long dream of working with his favourite ‘uncle’ Mr Bachchan, who has been an iconic figure in his life.
Aladin is the story of a young boy and his adventures along with genie and Jasmine played by Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez. The evil Ring master is played by Sanjay Dutt who wants to kill Aladin, and take back the lamp and reclaim his powers as the Ringmaster was once a genie. Hitting the screens on October 30, the movie has been the talk of the town for quite some time now and has been creating a rippling excitement amongst the audiences.

Work turns pleasure

Chunky Pandey might have spent his birthday away from family but nonetheless he had many friends around him. Chunky celebrated his birthday in Macau with the cast and crew of his upcoming movie Housefull. It was work-cum-pleasure for Chunky as not only did he have few of his closest friends like Akshay Kumar and Sajid Nadiadwala with him there, but they were also on the sets with him working on the same film.
Also known as the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau is the perfect place for some fun especially for a person like prankster Chunky, who also loves to gamble a bit. Besides, who wouldn’t enjoy an all-paid international trip on his or her birthday?

Katrina’s new nickname

The delicately boned Katrina Kaif showed a completely different side of hers while shooting for an action sequence on the sets of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. A source said, “The scene required Ranbir to save Katrina from a bunch of goons and escape on a jet ski. The two then had to climb a rope ladder that interestingly was at a height of 200 feet.”
While director Rajkumar Santoshi and the unit were sure that Ranbir would be able to climb the rope ladder swiftly, they were apprehensive about Katrina and wondered if she would be able to complete the shot successfully. But much to the unit’s surprise, something else happened. “Katrina climbed the ladder swiftly, while Ranbir was way behind. When he looked up, he was stunned to see Katrina, comfortably perched on the top. The entire unit stared at Katrina’s act with amazement,” said a source. Ever since that day, Ranbir has a new name for Katrina — Rambo’s sister Sambo.
