Audiences have to piece together the Jackpot puzzle!

It is not easy winning the Jackpot. More so, when there are three diverse personalities pitting their wits to make their moolah.

Set in a nonlinear storytelling style, Kaizad Gustad’s Jackpot, releasing December 13, moves back and forth in terms of time, hooking the audiences to travel the treasure hunt with Naseer aka Boss’s tenacious persona, Sachiin aka Francis’s cool cat stance and Sunny Leone aka Maya whose sex appeal blinds your senses from her true colours…

Says Kaizad, “this is an aage-peeche story. Everything goes forward and backwards over one monsoon. It is like a puzzle that has to be pieced together by the audiences.”

The makers of Dhoom 3 have decided to keep no preview of the movie. To maintain integrity of the movie, the movie will not be shown to anyone.

The makers want the content to be in high security and keep the mystery around the movie. That is why only 30 sec teasers were out not the entire song or clips.

A preview or a special screening feel will give out the curiosity of the movie.

The movie will not have any screening even for the cast and crew, which is the usual trend.

Each and everyone will only be able to watch the movie after its release.

The spokesperson of the film says, “No previews are been organised at all.”

Evelyn Sharma to match dance steps with Arshad Warsi

Evelyn Sharma seems to have all the luck by her side. From starting out as a fashionista and graduating to Bollywood success with super hits like Nautanki Saala! and the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD), she’s now turning a new leaf.

Evelyn has been signed by director Neeraj Pathak for Bhaiyyaji Superhit starring Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta and Arshad Warsi.

Pitted as the leading lady opposite Arshad, she plays a cute, sexy but traditional Indian girl. But what the actress is most excited about is matching dance steps with him!

Apart from being a powerhouse performer, Arshad is well-known for being a great dancer. And Evelyn feels this gives her a great chance to hone her dancing skills too. Nowadays, the gal is often spotted at a dance rehearsal hall in Andheri, Mumbai. We wonder if that has something to do with the challenge of dancing with Arshad.

Meanwhile, having bagged a role with various shades, comedy, songs, dance and all, Evelyn is glad to work with director Neeraj Pathak. “He spotted me in YJHD and invited me to his office for a meeting. He compliments me for my talent and thinks I am a quick learner. I feel honoured with the praise.”

And what does her hero Arshad think of her? “When I first shot with him in Jaipur, it was a scene where I was performing a puja in the house. And Arshad was quite amused by my Hindi accent,” she winks.

Divya Khosla Kumar: “We women are stronger than men and need not feel insecure.”

Former actress turned director Divya Khosla Kumar, who will be making her directorial debut with ‘Yaariyan’, claims that if the film succeeds, it will prove beyond all doubts that women can achieve whatever they want.

Talking about her experience, Divya says, “It’s difficult to be a mother and even tougher to be a director. I was doing both together. If it succeeds, it will not just be the success of the film, but of the principle that a girl without stooping down and compromising on her morals, keeping her dignity intact, can do it in this man’s world. And that if you are intelligent and talented, every woman can reach where she wants to. We women are stronger than men and need not feel insecure.”

Produced by Bhushan Kumar under the banner of T-Series Super Cassettes Industries Ltd, ‘Yaariyan’, which is slated to release on January 10, 2014, is a contemporary and youthful film that takes audiences through the trials and tribulations of the best years of their life.

Veena`s beau is a George Clooney Doppelganger

Veena Malik`s boyfriend Umar Farooq and George Clooney have a lot in common. It`s very evident that both of these hunks have similar looks but, a close look into their personal life too, evinces that the two actually have many things in common.

As per the sources, both of them have extraordinary lives. Though, Clooney`s life is already under the scanner of paparazzis. Umar`s life too, is slowly going down the same route after the revelation of his relationship, through media. Both of them have a penchant for good rides. George owns a Tesla Model S, while Umar owns a Rolls Royce. Both have beautiful girls by their sides (George Clooney is reportedly dating Stacy Keibler). Both of them sport pepper salt hairstyles.

Though the starlet insists that nothing is going on between them and they are just good friends, shutterbugs have enough to prove her wrong. They have already being spotted at Mumbai Airport a few weeks ago. Also, he escorted her to a high profile award ceremony in UK. And were even seen getting cozy in his car.

Another source informs us that,Veena had as many as 71,000 entries for Swayamwar but, turned it down for obvious reasons. Also, she has been declared the most beautiful actress by a British website in a recent internet survey.

The stars are shining on Veena and her beau, it seems.

Sandip Soparrkar and Jesse Randhawa steal Sonal Mansingh’s show

Very often renowned dancer Dr Sonal Mansingh comes up with her unique productions, be it Mukti, Sundari, Nayikaa, Krishna katha or even the devi katha all have been interesting and fascinating for the audiences for years. This year she celebrates her golden years on the Indian floor, her concept titled ‘Swarnika’ rejoices her completion of 50 years of dancing on the Indian shores.

Padma Vibhushan awardee Sonal Mansingh’s new show ‘When the Gods Meet’ celebrating the same premiered in the cultural city of Kolkatta in presence of eminent dance and political people. We followed the interesting and remarkable show to other cities of India like Guwahati and Delhi. This show is a superb idea of Mansingh mixing Indian and Greek Mythologies, and bringing alive the age old the stories from both the myths. The 90 min of this Indo- greek show had all the elements from entertainment to education. The sound and lights used in the show to enhance its legendary tales had a distinct appeal and proved that Dr. Mansingh and her creations are different from the rest of the dance community.

The best part her new show was the Greek myths ably choreographed and danced by internationally renowned dancer choreographer Sandip Soparrkar and his super model dance partner Jesse Randhawa. Every move they both made matched the capabilities of Mansingh and her abilities, the dancing duo were the true stars of her show. It was beautiful to see the best dancing Jodi of the country come and dance on the joyous occasion of ‘Swarnika’ for Mansingh.

The Indian dancers dancing the traditional myths choreographed by Mansingh herself did their best to match the capabilities of Sandip and Jesse, but the romantic mood that the couple always create was unmatched. Mansingh made a wise choice this time round too to choose India’s best dancing Jodi on her show to celebrate her golden years. We wish her all the very best for her future and hope to see many such wonderful shows by the graceful dancer.

Akshay Kumar the face of a Campaign for Mumbai Police

Recently Akshay Kumar had invited the police officers to train in his personal gym.Now we hear that Akshay Kumar has stepped in to encourage people to ride safety and the Mumbai Police has made akshay kumar the face of the campaign.

Akshay Kumar says:Stars are considered icons. So we should all be socially responsible… Actors really aren’t qualified to preach, but we do have a sense of humanity; all of us do. If we can make something better, we try to.”
In Particular about this cause about wearing a helmet Akshay says A lot of people wear a helmet wear a helmet not to save their lives many wear it so that cops don’t pull them over. I see youngsters riding recklessly,I personally feel like telling them that its not cool.
Akshay himself loves bikes He only rides it when he drops his son to school or when he takes his wife for an ice cream.As far as people say that films wrongly influence youngsters .In all honesty its not about the films its the lack of punishment that makes them think they can get away with it.
We all should wear helmets while riding bikes.
