Madhuri likes Tanu weds Manu, SRK appeal, Kareena , Race2

Madhuri loved 'Tanu Weds Manu'

Bollywood actors R. Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut are on cloud nine after their favourite actress Madhuri Dixit praised their movie "Tanu Weds Manu".
Madhuri, who came along with her family for the special screening of the romantic comedy, considered the movie a fine body of work as she could relate to the movie for its Indianness and connect to cultural roots. On knowing this, both Kangana and Madhavan are extremely happy.

An excited Madhavan wrote on microblogging site Twitter, "I met THE MADHURI DIXIT NENE today...she said she love my work .. MY YEAR IS MADEEEEe.. YIPEEEE (sic)."

Shun corruption, SRK tells youth

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan Wednesday urged the youth to stay away from corruption and make India a better place by being honest citizens.

"The negative has to change. There is so much corruption around and the future can be bettered by young boys and girls only, so that the generations to come can be proud of the country," Shah Rukh said while addressing students of the Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) here. "It is my earnest plea - do not indulge in scams or corruption. Everyday there are new scams in newspapers and TV. So I request the young generation to do things that do not leave the new generations embarrassed. Just make the best of opportunities and I wish all of you all the best," he added. Shah Rukh, who had hundreds of students waiting to catch a glimpse of him, had other words of wisdom to share before hosting IIPM's annual international business and marketing quiz DARE 2011.

"A lot of people ask me what advice I have to give to them. But I'll tell you honestly. I was at an award function with Bachchan once and before going to the stage, I asked him - 'Sir, do you have any advice to give?' He said- 'Before going to the stage, just check if your zip is up or not!'

"So I did that before my performance! And that's all I have to advise you youngsters - make sure all your zippers are intact when you do anything in life, and all shall be well," said the actor.

The 45-year-old also repeated his dialogue from "Om Shanti Om", and said: "Agar end mein sab kuch theek na ho, to woh the end nahi hain dosto...Picture abhi baaki hai... (If something does not end well, that's not the end, friends...the picture is still pending)".

His nearly three-hour delay left the students and media drained, but Shah Rukh's grand entry in a blue Bentley lifted everyone's spirits in no time. Sporting his deadly, new look for "Don - The Chase Continues" - complete with long, unkempt hair and a beard, the actor left the girls asking for more.

The audience at the Parkland Exotica were enthralled as Shah Rukh hosted the quiz show in his trademark, witty style. He joked, laughed, pulled the contestants' legs and even took a dig at IIPM dean Arindam Chaudhary's long locks.

"I am sporting long hair for my new film...but I should really learn how to keep them shampooed and straight like Arindam's hair...," he quipped. His witty and naughty one liners didn't spare some international students too. When one young girl from the US said she loved Indian saris, Shah Rukh commented: "Oh well...I am quite good at untying saris!"

Race 2' ready to take-off

Producer Ramesh Taurani and director duo Abbas-Mustan have finally locked the star cast of the much-awaited sequel to RACE. "The casting has to be perfect, once the script is okayed.

The expectations from RACE 2 are humungous and we plan to make it bigger and better than the first part," Abbas-Mustan had remarked quite some time back.

Well, the casting of RACE 2 is almost complete. While Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor have been retained from the first part, the makers have signed John Abraham to enact the negative role in the sequel to the successful film. Rumors are rife that Abhishek

Bachchan will also appear in a significant role, although his presence in the film is being kept under wraps. "Not true at all! Abhishek isn't part of the film," the producer clarifies. The leading ladies will be different as well. "Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha have been confirmed. We need to finalize one more leading lady opposite Anil," he divulges. Filming of RACE 2 begins in August this year.
