Kareena Kapoor and Abhishek BachchanAfter Refugee, they’re back again
After a long hiatus, Kareena Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan are likely to work together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Hira Mandi, a lavish period film based on the red-light district of Lahore. Says an insider, “Earlier, people thought that SLB would ask Hrithik to do the film, considering he has done Guzaarish with him and likes to repeat actors.” However, Abhishek seems to be better suited for the role given that he has already done period film like Umrao Jaan with Aish. Heera Mandi is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s most ambitious and expensive venture, and might star two other heroines besides Kareena. The ace filmmaker is keen on casting Aishwarya Rai and Preity or Rani and Preity with Kareena. Well, we look forward to watching this multi-star cast offering.

MugdhaMugdha dares to bare
After her stunning performance in the movie Fashion, model-turned-actor Mugdha Godse dares to bare it all in her upcoming movie Help opposite Bobby Deol. Mugdha is said to have done some bold scenes for this horror thriller and had no problem getting into a bikini either. She thanks her modeling background for helping her feel comfortable in the attire. Her debut film too required her to be in a two-piece bikini. When asked about her bold shots, Mugdha said, “I wasn’t conscious about wearing a bikini as it was the demand of the script. But I had to work quite hard to keep my body in shape.” She preferred wearing a plain white bikini than to a fluorescent colored one designed by Ashley Rebello, who designed her dresses in the film. The difficult part was playing two different characters. She said, “What was tough for me to portray the two looks I have in the film — at certain times it was glamorous while other times it had to be ghastly.” The film Help is planned to release on August 13, “It’s Friday the 13th and considering its subject the makers wanted it to be out on that day,” says Mughda

Anil KapoorKapoors set to rule Bollywood
After the father played Mr. India, his daughters seem to befit the crown of Ms. India, rather Ms. Bollywood. Anil Kapoor’s family is all set to rule Bollywood. The proud dad’s daughters are carrying forward his successful legacy with their skills in both acting and production. While one of Kapoor’s daughter, Sonam, is flying high with her sweet smile and inherited acting quality, his second daughter, Rhea, appears to one of the youngest and hottest producers in Bollywood with her upcoming film Aisha. Rhea’s film Aisha is the directorial debut of Rajshree Ojha and features music by Amit Trivedi. Her sister Sonam Kapoor, Abhay Deol, Cyrus Sahukar, Amrita Puri, Lisa Hayden, Arunodhay Singh and Ira Dubey also play a role in the film, which will be released on August 6. Just as Sonam Kapoor is flooding television screens with promos of Aisha and I Hate Luv Storys, sister Rhea, the producer of Aisha, says she will always stay behind the screen. Rhea admits she studied theatre in the US, but acting will always be a hobby. “I may have given it a shot if Sonam had not become an actress. But now I have experienced everything almost first hand with her. And I don’t think I will enjoy doing it for my life,” says Rhea. “Production however suits me better as I am a control freak. I might also try directing in a couple of years,” adds this younger sister. While both sisters are quite different, they are both similar in one aspect – both would like to direct. In fact Sonam even assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali before she started acting.
