Mugdha on a car hunt

Mugdha Godse had recently been involved in a nasty accident on the Pune expressway resulting in her car being damaged beyond repair. So this leggy actress had to scrap her old car and look out for a new set of wheels. But her subsequent schedule in Goa for Ajay Devgan Films’ production All The Best directed by Rohit Shetty left her with no time at all to buy a new car.
And now that the actress is in Mumbai for five days for a short schedule of Madhur Bhandarkar’s Jail, she is making the most of it. Sources say that the Fashion star wants to look at as many cars as possible before she heads back to Goa.
Since the actress is on a tight schedule, she apparently checks out auto magazines and calls for various models of cars for trial on the sets of the film. “I have already checked out a lot of models and will mostly be settling for an SUV.
I have been reading up so much on them, that now I’m much more clued in about vehicles and their technical specifications,” the actress mused. Now who said cars and girls don’t share a bond?
The actress is also full of praises for director Rohit Shetty of All The Best.
“Rohit is extremely considerate about my physical state and is making sure that I don’t have any issues while shooting for All The Best. Not that I have any reason to complain in any case but still Rohit keeps asking me if I am comfortable shooting for the film,” she says.
While she is still recovering from the injury that she got due to this road accident that she met with a few weeks back, Mugdha has been advised to wear some precious stones around her arm.
Apparently, these stones are medically proven to aid in faster healing process and in general are good for one’s physical being. “Even Ajay and Kajol wear these stones,” tells Mugdha. “I took their advise and started wearing them myself. My other medication is in progress in any case and I should be able to get 100 per cent well soon.”
Incidentally, Mugdha is
already preparing for a
double whammy ahead since both Jail as well as All The Best are slated to arrive
during the same time period. While All The Best has
already pencilled in October 16 as its release date, Madhur Bhandarkar too has gone on record to state that Jail would most likely arrive in either September or October.

Two people sat in a coffee shop and believed that they will make a film which has never been seen before on the Indian screen.” This line by Sujoy Ghosh on his blog is enough to arouse the curiosity of cinema lovers. The talented film-maker, whose debut film Jhankaar Beats became a landmark film is now on his way to creating another benchmark in Bollywood.

And the film in question is none other than Alladin a film that takes a contemporary look at the classic fairy tale. And as a first-of-its kind initiative, Sujoy has created a special blog to give movie enthusiasts an insight into the magnanimous task of making an epic film like Alladin.

He will tell the readers about how Alladin came  into being, how he managed to put together such an extraordinary star cast and what’s more on the anvil. The blog will also contain some exclusive pictures taken on the sets of Aladin, which will further give an insight into the entire experience of making such a colossal film.

Beauties love belly dancing

Bipasha Basu’s arch rival Kareena Kapoor has piped the Bong bombshell to the post. Not long ago, Bips had expressed a desire to learn belly dancing. But she never actually got down to doing it.

And now, Bebo is learning the same for her performance at an international film awards event that will take place next month in Macau.

Says a source, “Bips proclaimed that she was learning belly dancing. But she didn’t have the time to learn it though she did learn swimming and driving before she left for the shoot of ‘All the Best’.”

Now Kareena will be one up on her as she is taking belly dancing lessons from Shiamak Davar, who is also choreographing her act. Says a source close to Kareena, “Apart from the fact that Bebo is being paid a whopper, she is easily the highest-paid actress in the show line-up.”
