Salman Khan, who is presenting Atul Agnihotri’s upcoming next film, O Teri, starring Pulkit Samrat and Bilal Amrohi, recently shot a promotional song for the film.

Salman, who has been constantly connected with the making of the entire film from the beginning, came up with an idea for the special song that he was shooting.

The star Khan was very keen to shoot the song with old radio sets as props as they were just appropriate and matching the whole look on the sets.

So, the production team landed up buying all the old radio sets available in Chor Bazaar overnight.

The idea came just before shooting the song and so the production team managed to get everything arranged for the song in an overnight visit to the chor bazaar.

The sellers there were more than happy to help the production team with the radio sets when they got to know it was for Salman Khan’s shoot.

O Teri talks about two boys, Prantabh Pratap (PP) & Anand Ishvaram Devadutt Subramanium (AIDS, in short) who are ordinary journalists doing ordinary stories
facing ordinary pressures of life when a quirky turn of events changes their lives.

The film is slated to release on 28th March 2014

When contacted Atul Agnihotri, he said, “Yes, it was Salman bhai’s idea and our team managed to get most of the old radio sets for the shoot.” He laughed and added, “Don’t know if there are any more left there.”

Sunny Leone’s sex tape to-be leaked

The Baby Doll of B-town Sunny Leone seems to be working very hard on changing her image from being a porn star to a mainstream Bollywood actress. However, this change seems to be more of a farfetched dream for the sexy siren. Repeated attempts made by the actress to steer clear of her past profession are of no use when Ekta Kapoor has taken up the mantle of promoting her upcoming movie!

zoOm found out through reliable sources that an un-cut sex video from Ragini MMS 2 is scheduled to go viral on internet soon! Keeping in mind the censor board and sensibilities of the Indian audience, a scene from Ragini MMS2 involving explicit sex scenes was dropped off. However, Ekta Kapoor and her team will now leak this video on internet in the name of “Sunny’s New MMS”. Though Ms. Leone may be unaware, but as part of film promotion, this video will be used as a weapon to garner traction towards the movie. Ekta Kapoor is popular in the industry for her promotional strategies and there is a high possibility of this uncut video to be a well-planned marketing gimmick.

Though Sunny Leone, in the past, has reiterated that she would not like to be labelled as an ‘adult star’, this uncut video will definitely resurface her old porn star image; which she has been running away from! Well if Sunny wishes to make a mark in the industry, she will have to try harder to stay away from the explicit scenes.

Meet the solar engineers from Rajasthan. #ThisWomensDay”

Women’s Day has always held a special place in Dia’s life. A photoshoot, 14 years ago for a Women’s Day edition, played a stepping stone in the gorgeous actor’s career. Since then, the actor has been making her presence felt every year with her work and appearances, on this globally recognized day.

Dia Mirza, the woman of substance, has been making a difference to the society in whichever way she can. Women need to appreciate and take care of themselves, along with being respected by others. This act of Dia, on this special day, reiterates that.
