Asha Parekh to have grand 70th birthday bash
Bollywood Hungama - over 5 years
Yesteryear's Jubilee girl Asha Parekh has grown up. She is all set to turn 70 on October 2. The actress is planning a grand birthday bash at the Sun 'n' Sand where all her friends, well-wishers and colleagues from the film fraternity would gather to celebrate. But there's a problem. Asha Parekh's birthday happens to coincide with Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. And as we all know the Mahatma was anti-alcohol. In deference to the Mahatma allegiance to teetotalism, the powers-that-be have declared a non-alcohol day on October 2. Ashaji would have none of that alcoholic abstinence on her big day. She has therefore shifted her birthday bash by a day. Says the feisty forever-fun loving actress, "I've been planning my 70th birthday party for a while now. I don't host parties. The last time I had a bash was for my 60th birthday ten years ago. I want my friends and me to have full-on fun for my birthday. So I've shifted my party by a day because Oct 2 is 'dry' day in Maharashtra." Ashaji m...

Its unimaginable for me to be not working - Shammi Aunty
Bollywood Hungama - almost 6 years
At 83, Shammi Aunty, as she is universally known, loves people and acting. Unfailingly, she is the first to call on my birthday every year. Failing health and difficulty in hearing have not taken away this Bollywood survivor's spirit. After a long time, we got to see Shammi Aunty as Boman Irani's doting grandmother in Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. The attention she's getting after a longish gap is certainly welcome. Basking in the attention, the veteran actress says, "I want to continue acting. It's the only thing I know how to do. But movie offers had stopped coming for a while. I was doing television. But that too dwindled lately. So I was sitting idle. At my age to be workless is to be worthless. Lekin main aaj tak kabhi kissi se kaam maange nahin gayi (I never went to anyone to ask for work). Why should I do so now? I am happy getting what comes to me. And grateful to God I still get work. It isn't a major role in Shirin Farhad..., but it was great fun shooting the film." ...

Hangal (98 years), is extremely critical and was been admitted to Asha Parekh Hospital in Mumbai yesterday, after he fell in his bathroom and fractured his right femur (thigh) bone.

Talking about Hangal's condition, Dr. Vinod Khanna, (Orthopedic Surgeon- Asha Parekh Hospital) said that during Hangal's examination, they found that he had severe chest complications, and that's why they admitted him in the ICU. Khanna also added that his condition is still critical and he has been kept under observation. Readers may recall that Hangal, despite, his age and health conditions, braved to face the camera for the recently launched TV serial 'Madhubala', wherein he had reached the sets on a wheelchair.

Upkar The making of the biggest patriotic film
Bollywood Hungama - almost 6 years
Today, August 15, India celebrates 67 years of Independence. The year 2012 also marks the 45th anniversary of a film that is in its own league - Manoj Kumar's Upkar. Why does Upkar, Manoj Kumar's first production and also debut directorial at an official level (he ghost-directed the 1965 Shaheed, which he had also written), become the first and most important film when we look at patriotic cinema? In the long annals where we have seen variegated epics on loving the motherland from a Mother India to a Haqeeqat, Manoj's own Shaheed and Purab Aur Pacchim, Border, Sarfarosh, Lagaan and many more, but this film about a farmer still in its own class as an epic benchmark in patriotic motion pictures. The inspiration - the Prime Minister! Lal Bahadur Shastri, the then-Prime Minister, inspired Manoj Kumar at the special screening of Shaheed in Delhi. "Why don't you make a film on my slogan "Jai Jawaan Jai Kisaan"?", a slogan Shastri had coined during the 1965 Indo-Pak war. "Somethi...

KARACHI: Be it a monologue on the existential dilemma of a cancer patient or a drunkard’s confession of love for a singer at a brothel, Rajesh Khanna’s fans felt his character’s anguish. After a prolonged illness, the actor who was lovingly called Kaka by his peers, passed away at the age of 69 at the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. Kaka’s life Unlike his Bollywood verve, Khanna’s personal life was turbulent. In the late 60s, he fell in love with little known actor and fashion designer Anju Mehndru, whom he dated for seven years but didn’t marry as she was not ready. Khanna then met Bollywood bombshell Dimple Kapadia, whom he married in 1973, a few months prior to her hit film Bobby. While the actors were among the most dazzling onscreen, they could not capture that chemistry in real life and were separated after 11 years of marriage. According to Indian press reports, their relationship grew estranged as he was busy filming and Dimple wanted to pur...
