Madhuri Dixit is one star Bollywood is proud of and can never get enough of her. Post marriage Madhuri has kept away from cameras devoting her time and attention to kids and family. Her last film was ‘Aaja Nach Le’ which failed to create a spark at the box office but this has not faded the lady’s adoration in any way.
Now, the reports have it that she may play the role of Sonam Kapoor’s mother in Anil Kapoor’s remake of the Hollywood film, ‘Freaky Friday’. The film revolves around a mother and daughter who magically swap roles for a day...

Bollywood actresses like Shabhana Azmi, Rekha and Kirron Kher had been previousle approached for the role but they all gave a no to the project due to date problems. Now, Madhuri is being considered for the role and if she says yes, it would fulfil Anil Kapoor’s wish which was expresses when he said that he would like to work with his former leading lady again.
Her secretary and previous manager, Rakesh Nath has said, “She has got four-five very good offers. She will definitely do another film soon, but this time we have to be very careful. I’ve worked with other actresses, but Madhuriji is Madhuriji.”
Well, some part of the story definitely seems to be true as Madhuri has tweeted, “Meeting with Anil Kapoor today. Lets see what happens….”

Katrina Kaif rocked the nation with her sexy avatar in ‘Tees Maar Khan’ and especially her item song ‘Sheila Ki Jawaani’. Now, the actress will be seen in a role in dire contrast to what she played in TMK. This Prakash Jha film titled ‘Satsang’ will see Kats as a woman clad in an ochre robe and in search of spirituality. This upcoming film exposes the multi-billion global religion factory in India.

Her role in Satsang is so complex that even Jha was not sure, initially, if the actress could deliver. “It would be the most challenging part of my career so far,” says Katrina.
She plays the central character in the film which is semi-autobiographical in nature and is that of a woman from the West in search of Oriental spiritualism. Katrina will be seen sans makeup for the film and will have to get informed on the intricacies of the multi-billion religious industry in India.”
Katrina is already geared up for the role and says, “Prakashji and I have discussed the part in detail. This is one film that I’ve do the most preparation for. I’m open to the challenge.”

Chetan Bhagat’s novel ‘2 States’, which is going to make a big screen entry in Bollywood, has now got new hero, new director and may be a fresh heroine too! Initially, when Sajid Nadiadwala was the only producer for the film, Siddharth Anand was supposed to direct the movie with Priyanka Chopra and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles..

Later Saif opted out of the project and Shah Rukh entered the scene with the dual role of a lead hero as well as of a co-producer. Now, the film will be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj of Kaminey fame. When Vishal got the project, he fled to Berlin, where SRK and Priyanka was shooting for Don 2. Both of them were impressed with Vishal’s narration and agreed to be a part of the project.
However, things changed when SRK returned home in Mumbai. He went to meet Vishal and said that Priyanka will not be suitable for the role as the story demands a fresh face. The director also agreed and thus Priyanka was out of the film.
Now, they are in search of a fresh talented face, who can do justice to the role. Well, Priyanka has already done two films with King Khan so she should not mind on this decision. It will be interesting to see who becomes lucky to get an opportunity to share screen space with Shah Rukh in 2 States.

Salman Khan the good looking Bollywood hunk turns 45 today the 27th of December, he has been in the headlines for most of 2010. Let’s find out why?

Well, to begin with his film released earlier this year Veer, had a very pretty new girl Zarine Khan who was the splitting replica of Salman’s girl friend at that time Katrina Kaif. Now even before Salman himself realized that Zarine looked exactly like Kat, the gossip mongers worked in full swing to make him also agree ultimately that yes, Zarine did look like his girlfriend Kat a lot. Even though the movie was a disaster at the box office, Salman Khan’s popularity did not wane.
His second release Dabangg was one of the few super hit blockbusters of the year and his role as Chulbul Pandey was just the talk of the nation for a good year.
Then came his stint on the small screen. The ‘Bigg Boss Season 4′ which started in October has been one of the most popular reality shows on the television and having the dude Salman Khan hosting it in his own style has made it even more popular with the viewers.
Salman Khan’s other claim to the being on the most popular celebrity of the year was his charity organization ‘Being Human’, where he has contributed in various ways to help out the kids in need. His efforts to raise money by holding fashion shows, launching the brand ‘Being Human’ watches, giving a watch each to each inmate of the Bigg Boss house eviction are all reasons enough to make this hunk the most talked about star of the year.
Then there is his growing closeness to SRK’S friends like KJO, who is supposed to pay Salman for coming to his chat show ‘Koffee with Karan’, where the money will go to the ‘Being Human’ foundation, to his growing fondness to SRK’S once good friend Farah Khan with whom he appeared on various TV shows as a guest, all made headlines during the year. The one breaking news was when Shahrukh had said in a show that probably his enmity with Farah and Salman were his own fault, which all again had Salman grabbing attention from media. Then there is the news about his alleged wedding to co-actor Asin, which of course turned out to be a squib.
Well, since Salman Khan’s birthday is today, he was wished well in advance by Katrina Kaif, as she had had been spotted going to his Bandra home to visit him and his family to wish him on Saturday night itself. She was reportedly there for more than an hour. This gesture from Kat has once again proved their detractors wrong as the two share a great friendship even now, as opposed to what was being said.
We too wish this star a very Happy Birthday and a fantastic year ahead!

Bollywood star Anil Kapoor has appeared in different avatars in different movies in his more than two decade long career in the industry. He is one Bollywood hero, who has ruled in the industry as a lead hero in the 80s even with his signature moustaches..

We have not seen him much experimenting with his looks and even with hairstyles. Now, there was a buzz since last month that the actor is planning to go bald for his role in Rajkumar Santoshi’s movie Power, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan. Anil is turning villain for this film and wanted to look very fierce villain like Amrish Puri’s ‘Mogambo’.
Anil was seen clean shaved in the film Lamhe, which showed him in teenage during the first half. He even got his chest shaved for the role but the veteran star is in two minds now when he is supposed to go bald for his character in Power.
The actor said that he is still thinking about other options to make his character look best. Well, Anil has come a long way in his Bollywood journey so it will not be very risky if experiments with bald head now! He has even got recognition in Hollywood following his appearance in the Academy Award winning film Slumdog Millionaire.

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is soon becoming the preferred face for films which boast of sexual content and skin show. After reports that she has been chosen to portray the real life character of South Indian siren Silk Smitha in an upcoming Bollywood project, Vidya Balan has also been roped in by Balaji Telefilms for their upcoming film Ragini MMS, a film based on the MMS video clip that was shot at a school in New Delhi.
It was just a few days ago that the media was abuzz with reports of Kangana Ranaut walking out of the movie after she developed cold feet on performing bold scenes and shedding to the bare minimum onscreen. Ekta Kapoor had confirmed reports of Kangana Ranaut leaving her project because she was uneasy about the explicit content that was part of Ragini MMS. Kangana Ranaut was the initial choice of Balaji Telefilms because Ekta Kapoor has already delivered a hit with the actress in her 2010 release Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. ....

With Kangana leaving the project, Ekta Kapoor was on the lookout for a new leading lady for Ragini MMS. And though representatives from Balaji Telefilms are reluctant to make any comments about Vidya Balan agreeing to play the role that was disowned by Kangana Ranaut, the media is abuzz with reports of the femme fatale of Bolly

An incident which took place yesterday night in Mumbai proved to the media that the Rishi Kapoor – Karan Johar spat which had started from Karan’s Koffee couch is far from over. According to reports in the media, Rishi Kapoor and his wife Neetu Kapoor walked out of an event after the name Karan Johar was mentioned in the questions which were asked to them by the media. The erstwhile star couple were guests at an event promoting the empowerment of women in India....

Media reports claim that Rishi Kapoor had requested the media from asking any personal questions and since they had chosen to ignore his requests, the actor too thought it better to walk out on them! The Rishi Kapoor – Karan Johar first started when celebrity guests Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, both linked to Rishi Kapoor’s son Ranbir Kapoor, had some very interesting things to say to the audience of ‘Koffee With Karan’ about the philandering ways of Ranbir. Daddy Kapoor is of the opinion that it was in the hands of Karan Johar to stop such comments from being aired on national television. Though Ranbir Kapoor himself admitted to the fact that he cheated on his partner in the past in yet another episode of ‘Koffee With Karan’, relationships between some Bollywood families had already started rotting by then.
Though it was reported a few days back that Karan Johar had made up with the actor by sharing with him a warm hug, Rishi Kapoor’s and Neetu Kapoor’s behavior last night clearly showed that the troubles are far from over.

The King Khan of Bollywood still has more to learn even after an extremely successful career spanning more than two decades. According to reports in the media, Shah Rukh Khan will learn gymnastics for his 2011 Diwali release Ra.One. It is true that SRK is known for his romantic appearances onscreen, but this time he wants to do something never seen before in his forthcoming home production Ra.One for which he is presently taking fitness lessons from physiotherapist Dr Ali Irani, the man who is known to have trained the Indian cricket team as well....

Reports from the sets of Ra.One claim that Shah Rukh Khan will not only be performing gymnastics through the course of the science fiction film, the actor will also perform some trapeze stunts for a song sequence. And the key to performing these difficult stunts is gymnastics, feels the actor. The special song sequence will have stunts, a horde of girls, a circus set and a fully clothed Shah Rukh Khan! Contrary to reports which suggested that SRK will again appear shirtless in Ra.One like he did for Om Shanti Om, director Anubhav Sinha has said in a statement to the media that Shah Rukh Khan will not remove his clothes.
Ra.One is definitely one of the most awaited releases of 2011 and with so much preparation going into the film by Shah Rukh Khan, his fans are waiting with bated breath for the film to hit the theaters.

There has been enough discussion about Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s marriage! We have come across lots of comments from both of them but none of them have given real indication about the time when they will tie the knot...

Saif has already taken the marriage vows once and is happy with two kids from his former wife Amrita Singh. So, it seems there is no hurry from his side and Kareena is also at peak of her career and is only 30 now. The hottest couple of Bollywood does not seem to be interested in tying the knot at this moment considering their career is going great these years.
However, Saif is quite intelligent and shifted the question towards Kareena saying that he is ready for taking the vows once Kareena is comfortable and happy with this. The couple has been dating since last three years and the question has been haunting them since last two years. Saif once made it clear that Bebo is not required to convert herself before getting married to him so there is no problem in this aspect. She has also reached a comfort level with his two kids and family, so no barrier here too.
So, why is Kareena waiting to say yes for marriage to ‘chote nawab’? She has given enough to Bollywood and can easily continue her journey in the industry even after turning ‘choti begum’ considering the fact that Saif’s mother and sister are actresses themselves.
Saif says that he will remain committed the same way even if he is not married to Kareena but we think the lady should come out with a serious decision very soon. In 2009, Bebo was quoted saying that she would get married by 2012 with Saif and would like to have two kids! We hope she sticks to her decision.

Sameera Reddy had a triple bonanza this year on her birthday. She celebrated her birthday in Mumbai along with her most parents and she was in for a big surprise when her parents gifted a latest brand new white color BMW 5 series car. Not just that they also gifted to her a posh and exclusive deluxe flat. She of course felt wonderful. And lo… her birthday surprises did not end here because director Priyadarshan surprised Sameera on her birthday by signing her for his Hindi film with Ajay Devgn.
However, Sameera was to have celebrated her birthday on 14th December in Chennai on the sets of her untitled film with Vishal directed by Prabhu Deva. However Prabhu Deva gave her a break from the shoot so that she could fly to Mumbai and take part in a  “surprise birthday celebration” party which was being arranged by her parents and friends....
Sameera tweeted “Just landed from Chennai back to Mumbai. Good to be back home for my birthday.” About working with Prabhu Deva, the actress tweeted “He is such an awesome director. He insisted I be home with family today. My mom and dad are thrilled.”

Our space had given you the Pictures of Sonakshi Sinha in a hot black dress for the covers of Maxim’s latest issue. However, the website of India Today published the same news with a fake twist with Sonakshi in a white bikini for the magazine’s cover.
The news obviously did not go down well with the actress who retorted back saying, “Quite shocked to see India Today carrying an article on me appearing on Maxim in a bikini!! Yeah right,” Sonakshi wrote on microblogging site Twitter.
“These guys generally have their facts and figures right! Got the fact that I’m on Maxim right, but the figure (pun intended) completely wrong! Would’ve been smart if they checked out the magazine before writing whatever they felt like. It’s not about me anymore but about their credibility,” she added.
Salman Khan, the mentor and first hero of Sonakshi Sinha, too is irked by the bikini clad pictures of Sonakshi doing rounds among the media circles. Check out the fake pictures of Sonakshi in the bikini…………

Priyanka Chopra is the reigning queen of Bollywood, yet she is known for her humility and simplicity. She is all support to the new comer Sahil whom she is working with in ‘Don 2’. When the actor was struggling for a bit to come to grips with the demands of this mega-project, Priyanka gave him tips and helped him get a few things right.
Also, when Priyanka Chopra was to attend and launch the ‘PEARLS WAVE 2′ press conference at Hotel Grand Hyatt in Kalina, her car broke down. However, the actress did not hesitate in hopping into an auto rickshaw and made it to the event at the right time.

Vidya Balan is known for the ease and poise with which she plays various complex characters but the role she is set to play in Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Kahaani’ is such which not many Bollywood babes would dare to play. She will be seen as a six motnhs pregnant woman with a belly in the entire film. In the flick, Vidya’s husband travels from London to India for work. However, he goes missing and she comes to Kolkata in search of him. Shot in Kolkata and London the film will be out some time mid 2011 and the Kolkata schedule of the flick has already been wrapped up.
Says Sujoy, “It’s the story of a woman who’s six months pregnant and her journey. I had written the script keeping Vidya in mind. I wouldn’t have made the film without her. For me she’s a perfectionist who has beautifully brought the character alive.”
He adds, “She made it look so effortless. She never compromised on any aspect of filmmaking. Since cinema is a visual medium it was very important for her to look the part. There is lot of simplicity in her character and at the same time great turmoil within...

Also there were boundaries because a pregnant woman isn’t Batman or Superman. She can’t do much, there’s only so much you can make her do. But the beauty lies in the vulnerability and subtle nuances that she’s used to play the character.”

Trainer Yasmin Karachiwala, who has her fitness centre in Bandra, has already taken Kareena Kapoor, Imran Khan, and Karisma Kapur under her grueling workouts. Now, it is Sonakshi Sinha’s turn to take the hard training session from her in order to look fit for Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’.  The movie has Akshay Kumar as her co-star and goes on the floors early 2011. Her role demands a fit and toned body.
Sonakshi says, “I heard about Yasmin from a friend and was tired of doing the same old workout, so I made the switch! She’s very good and I’m enjoying my workout, feeling and looking better! It’s good to be fit and Yasmin is helping me achieve exactly that!”
Now, that Farah Khan made Katrina Kaif hit the gym with a vengeance to have the perfect curves for Sheila Ki Jawani track in Tees Maar Khan and the results are more than rewarding, we do not have to point out here where the motivation to Sonakshi comes from!!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been the brand ambassador of Longines for 11 years and she recently walked down the ramp in a Gauri and Nainika Karan designed blue gown at Taj Palace hotel for the promotion of Longines Dolce Vita watch collection.
Ash shared her experience of shooting the ad in Rome along with Kate Winslet and Chi Ling Lin saying, ” I had a great time shooting for the Dolce Vita commercial with Kate Winslet and [ Taiwanese model and actress] Chi Ling Lin as we’ve tried to recreate ancient Rome in modern times,” she said. She added that they had “so much fun” shooting that ” it did not seem like work at all”....

The theme of the Rome of 60s was adequately brought out in the Durbar Hall of the Taj Palace as Italian jazz numbers were performed and two dancers took the stage during the event too.
While Aishwarya flaunted the gown in rich blue the other models were clad in rich hues like burgundy, wine red, dark shades of green, black and white. However, what was more prominent was the fact that Ash looked just too happily married as the extra kilos showed on her arms and the flab on her face.

In fact earlier this year there were reports about him having a bike specially made for himself with the style and design of the bike all assembled in exactly the same way that he wanted it to be.

Well, so well known John for his love of his bikes that at a recent chat show on the telly he had confessed about an incident.

John had said that once when he was giving his girl friend Bipasha Basu a lift on his bike he had asked her to be careful with her heels lest they would make scratches on his bike. Then when she was trying to close up to him on the bike he told her to sit back lest the helmet would get scratched. Well, so offended was Bips that she got off the bike and asked him to go saying that she would manage to go home on her own! Well, such love for his bikes has never really had any bad effect on John's and Bips relationship. The two are still one of the greatest couples in Bollywood...

Infact Bips has gone and posted a cute pic of John as a child on her twitter and she has posted a message saying that this cute kid's birthday is on the 17th of December and he has grown up to be a very handsome man. As John has not opened his own twitter handle, Bipasha has even thanked everyone on John's behalf for wishing him on his birthday.

Now John, a girlfriend like Bipasha is the best gift you can ever get - what say? Happy Birthday in all flavors to John Abraham

Looks like Dabangg has worked wonders for Sonakshi Sinha. The one film old actress has raised her fee to Rs 1 crore, thus joining the league of highest paid actresses like Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor.
We hear that for one of her upcoming projects, the actress has already taken an advance payment of Rs 91 lakh . A trade analyst is quoted as saying by a daily, “Since Sonakshi has kept herself exclusive only to big hero projects, the girl’s market price is being negotiated very carefully.”
No other newbie has ever hiked her/his fee so astronomically as Sonakshi has, even considering the likes of Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, or Kangana Ranaut. Industrywallahs are finding it hard to digest this fact, as Sonakshi is just one-movie old.
Sonakshi is rocking this season…

On the chat show Koffee With Karan, when Saif in the rapidfire round was asked to name a celeb who’s had a bad Botox job, The Chote Nawab’s instant answer was “Poor Koena (Mitra). I can’t think of any one else.”
Koena Mitra on hearing this remark, reacts to the Saif Ali Khan’s comment saying she never expected the comment from Saif. “I think it’s an act of desperation.
If it had been another actress’ comment, maybe it would have been seen in a different light. But for a guy to call out a girl’s name when talking about Botox is really sad!”
The actress, is currently in America seeking modelling and acting assignments.
She goes on to add, “Saif has definitely lost out on an admirer,”. I used to think highly of him.
He’s called a Chote Nawab (as he’s a descendant of the Nawabs of Pataudi), but after listening to what he said I feel he’s more of a ‘Gareeb Nawab’.

If I was in his place I’d give up on twenty such Koffee hampers but wouldn’t take anyone’s name on such a topic.”

When asked if she feels Saif himself has taken the aid of Botox, she says, “There are actors above 40 who have got rid of their wrinkles and other blemishes.

It’s perfectly alright to do that. I think Saif looked drastically different during Love Aaj Kal and everyone noticed the sudden change in his appearance. But it really isn’t in my interest to sit and pick on people.”

After confirming that she hasn’t resorted to Botox yet, she cheekily adds, “When I reach Saif’s age and have two grown up kids, maybe then I will dial him and ask for Botox advice.
Till then I am happy with the way I look!”

The 14th anniversary issue of Elle features Aishwarya Rai one its covers who looks truly eternal and enigmatic in her Victorian-era gown accompanied with her pristine looks and piercingly dazzling eyes. The price of the magazine at Rs.75 is nothing compared to the cover story which gives a detailed account of how Aishwarya covered her journey to fame. The Bachchan Bahu is seen bewitching her fans wearing a Rohit Bal ensemble which is styled on the Victorian age and highly assuages her impeccable charm.
The Magazine rightly admires the star quoting, “They don’t make stars like her anymore. She is ethereal, enigmatic and casts a spell wherever she goes…”

Kajol Mukherjee (Devgan)
Acting runs in her blood and her natural bent for acting is well reflected in the ease with which she plays variety of roles. Yes, we are talking about Kajol, daughter of Tanuja and Shomu Mukherjee. Be it her maternal aunt Nutan Behl or her maternal grandmother Shobhna Samarth and maternal great grandmother Rattan Bai, they wee all yesteryears movie stars. Kajol’s younger sister Tanisha has also joined the industry and has films like ‘Niel and Nikki’, ‘Sarkar’, etc to her credit.
Kajol was born on 5th August 1974 in Mumbai and has a happy and comfortable childhood. She debuted with the film ‘Bekhudi’ in 1992 which was a box office disaster. The came her film ‘Baazigar’ with Shahrukh Khan and the industry started talking about this not-so-glamorous girl who seemed to have acting potentials. Her next flick ‘Udhar Ki Zindagi’ truly brought out her flair for acting. In 1998 she again had a hit with Shahrukh Khan in ‘Kara Arjun’.
Kajol was best paired on-screen with actor Shah Rukh Khan and both make a magical romantic pair. In fact, each of her five movies with him (Baazigar, Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and Kabhi Khushie Kabhi Gham) have all gone on to become super-hits and blockbusters. She has appeared with her husband Ajay Devgan in movies like ‘Hulchul’, ‘Gundaraj’, ‘Raju Chacha’,,, ‘Ishq’ and ‘Pyar to Hona Hi Tha’ among which the last two were commercially successful.
In her short filmi career, Kajol has got rave reviews along with a lot of awards. The latter includes Filmfare Best Actress Award for ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ (1995), Filmfare Best Villain Award and Zee Cine Award Best Actor in a Negative Role for ‘Gupt‘ (1997), Filmfare Best Actress Award and Zee Cine Award Best Actor- Female for ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ‘ (1998), Star Screen Award Best Actress for Dushman (1998), Filmfare Best Actress Award and Star Screen Award Best Actress for ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ (2001), Zee Cine Special Award for Outstanding Performance- Female for ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ (2001).
Her marriage to Ajay Devgan in February 24, 1999 was a quiet affair where only a few close friends and relatives were invited. The newly wed couple went on a two month honeymoon traveling the world visiting such places as Sydney & Cairo. The couple has carried off their marriage well and compliment each other perfectly as Kajol is known for a bubbly, cheerful and extrovert nature and Ajay is shy, serious and introvert. Post marriage Kajol has cut down the number of movies to spend more time with her family. She had a miscarriage but was blessed with a baby girl in 2003 whom she named Nyasa.
The films which were released after the marriage include ‘Raju Chacha’ (2000), ‘Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi’ (2001), Karan Johar’s ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ (2001) and ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ (2003). She gave a brilliant performance in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’. After this movie, she stayed away from the film industry for a while. In 2006, she came back enacting the role of a blind Kashmiri girl with Aamir Khan in Kunal Kohli’s ‘Fanaa‘ which again showed that the journey is not over for this talented gem of Bollywood...

Juhi Chawla
Innocent, sweet and bubbly Juhi Chawla was the first child born to Punjabi father Dr. S. Chawla and Gujarati mother, Mona. She has one brother named Sanjeev. She graduated from Sydenham College, Mumbai, Maharastra. She was crowned Miss India in 1984 and she won the best costume award in the Miss Universe contest that year.
From beauty contests, she moved into film - with her movie debut being “Sultanat” in 1986. The film was not a huge success at the box office. Her next project was the Kannada film “Permaloka” which was a superhit. Her next Bollywood appearance was the superhit film “Quayamat Se Quayamat Tak” where she starred next to Aamir Khan. The pair went on to be one of the most successful on screen couples industry has ever seen.
The next few films were not very successful for Juhi. Love Love Love, Goonj, Kaafila, Swarg all bombed at the box office, but Juhi Chawla hit the hotspot with Dharmesh Darshan’s “Lootere”. A song on the beach in just a plain white shirt was enough for her to be labeled hot.
Her second innings in Bollywood started with a series of hits starting with “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” in 1992 followed by “Bol Radha Bol” (1992) and “Lootere” in 1993. Next came Yash Raj’s “Darr” which was a blockbuster hit and one of the greatest hits of the 90’s. With this performance she was suddenly placed right at the top and became one of the toughest contenders for the no. 1 title. Darr was followed by another hit “Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke” for which she won the Filmfare Best Actress award.
Her pairing with Shahrukh has also been successful. Together they gave Bollywood hits like Ram Jaane, Yes Boss, Duplicate etc. Together they also started a film production firm Dreamz Unlimited. The first movie by the production house was “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani” released in 2000. Her best performances between the period 1997 and 2002 included “Ishq” and “Arjun Pandit”.
Recent years have not been that successful for Juhi and her career seems to be on a low. Lately she starred in “My Brother Nikhil” in 2005 which was not commercially successful but critically acclaimed, “Bas Ek Pal” (2006), Salaam-e-Ishq (2007) etc. Her forthcoming releases include “Swami” and “Bhoothnath” both of which are set to be released in 2007.
Juhi is married to the famous industrialist Jai Mehta. She gave birth to her first child, a girl, on February 21, 2001. Her daughter’s name is Jhanvi. Chawla later gave birth to a son called Arjun.

The future looked dim for this diva when this was followed by other flops like Aawara Baap, Swati, Hifazat etc. The year 1988 was the turning point in her career when she was re-launched by Subhash Ghai in the legendary hit. This was followed by Dayavaan and Tezaab. She starred next to Vinod Khanna in the former and the dashing Anil Kapoor in the latter. Tezaab made her a dancing sensation in India and the Ek-Do-Teen girl with her sensational dance and sensuous facial expressions started a new cult in Bollywood.
“Dil” added another accomplishment to her list when her performance in the blockbuster movie won her the Filmfare Best Actress Award. Again the movie was appreciated both by the fans and the critics for years to come and the film completed its Golden Jubilee.
Dil was followed by “100 Days” and “Saajan” in 1991 which were huge success at the box office and established Madhuri Dixit as the crown princess of Bollywood. Then came Indra Kumar’s “Beta” in 1992 which again was one of the biggest box office hits. The film won her the Filmfare Best Actress Award. Her sensuous dance number in Dhak Dhak karne laga established her as the ‘Dhak Dhak’ girl who stole the hearts of millions.
Her famous item number ‘Choli ke Peeche’ in Khalnayak in 1993 placed her in the centre of a huge controversy and again brought her in the spotlight. She was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actress Award for the same movie. 1994 was perhaps the best year in the career of Madhuri with two of her biggest hits “Anjaam” and “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun” releasing that year. While her role in Anjaam, where she played a vengeful damsel, was greatly applauded by the critics, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun recorded the single greatest hit ever breaking the record of Sholay. The film won her the Filmfare Best Actress Award for the 3rd time.
Indra Kumar’s “Raja” (1995) was another one of her hits. Though the film had many flaws her role won the critics recognition. Unfortunately after that had been downhill for Madhuri with a series of flops like Prem Granth, Koyla, Mrityudand etc. Critics commented that it was time for Madhuri to pack her bags and leave the industry but then came her performances in Dil Toh Pagal Hai (1997) which once again who her the Filmfare Best Actress Award. She once again starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Devdas” in 2002. The film was commercially successful and she proved once again that she has neither lost her acting talents nor her dancing skills.
After her marriage in 1999 films have moved down the priority list for Madhuri and she is devoting more time to her personal life taking care of her two sons Arin and Ryan. She is though starring in a few films the most recent in line being ‘Aaja Nach Le’. Let us hope that we get to see more of this dashing diva of Bollywood...

Vishal Bhardwaj offered Bollywood director Karan Johar the role of a sex manic and wife-beater husband of Priyanka Chopra in ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’. KJo was bewildered to get such an offer and said, “From what angle do I look like a wife-beater? And how could I enact a scene making love to Priyanka Chopra! And that too as a sex maniac! There is no way I could do this.”
News has it that KJo was horrified at the character he was offered to play, but his horror did not stop Irrfan Khan from playing that role! It is believed that had Karan been a part of the film, it would have been the most unusual casting.

As soon as Karan heard about the casting offer, he was mighty amused initially. But then wondered how on earth he could essay a wife beater!”karan johar
