Ash and Abhi’s impromptu jig in Rio
The entire cast of Dhoom 2 was shooting in Rio including Hrithik, Bipasha, Ash and Abhi and it was almost the end of a grueling shooting schedule. The entire cast was shooting for a night sequence on the streets of Rio and there were several other junior artistes also present. Everyone in the cast was exhausted and feeling stressed out when suddenly they began hearing the song ‘Kajra Re’ blasting from the speakers. All the actors were immediately so revved up that they all began to dance and shake along. Ash and Abhi even performed the entire dance sequence from their hit song ‘Kajra Re’ together. All the dancing took place amidst cheers from the onlookers who also enjoyed themselves along with the actors. Actor Uday Chopra came up with the idea of blasting the song in order to liven up the atmosphere.
Uday Chopra claims “that on the sets of Dhoom 2 we were either working or having fun.” The actors had a lot of fun as Hrithik, Abhishek and Uday have been childhood friends and always have fun when they are together. Well we hope to see all that hard work and fun while watching the film.

Saif Ali Khan finally quits smoking
Many celebrities claim that they want to quit smoking, but due to their high profile lifestyle and all the pressures that go with it, it is indeed not an easy feat for most of them. King Khan, Shahrukh too has claimed several times that he wants to give up smoking, but has to still get around to doing it. Well Actor Saif Ali Khan is one of the actors who has finally given up smoking. According to sources “Saif is a very good and caring father and ever since photographs of him and Amrita smoking were published during a school function of their children, he was concerned how his children would react and hence this is what made him give up smoking.” Now that’s what we call a doting dad who would do anything for his kids. Let’s hope that this inspires Shahrukh and other bollywood actors to give up smoking too.
Producer Kumar Mangat is also producing a film titled ‘No Smoking’ which will star John Abraham and so the producer also decided to enforce the rule of no smoking on the sets in accordance with the title of the film. However anyone, including directors, actors etc will have to pay a fine of Rs 500 every time they break the rule and smoke. Director of the film Anurag Kashyap and even co-producer Vishal Bharadwaj have already paid fines several times. The money that will be collected will be donated to a charity organization. Now this one is certainly a novel and interesting idea, perhaps other producers and directors should follow suit.
Ash hogs the limelight while Vidya is relegated to the background
Actress Vidya Balan made her mark with her debut film Parineeta and she received loads of praise for her performance in the film. Vidya was extremely happy when she was first approached to do a role in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Guru’. Vidya claimed that she had a small but pivotal role in the film. However now that the film has been completed Vidya is unhappy about the way her small role was further slashed. In fact she has been relegated to the background while her co-star Ash is busy hogging the limelight. Sources claim that Vidya is unhappy with the way her role has finally shaped up in the film and she is extremely hurt and upset that a director of Mani Ratnam’s caliber has given her such a raw deal. In fact even during the music launch of the film Vidya’s absence from the event was quite prominent.
Well with the queen of bollywood playing the lead actress in the film, Vidya was bound to be relegated to the back benches.
