Indian origin US filmmaker Krishna Shah, is planning to cast Bollywood stunner, Priyanka Chopra in the lead role in a biopic on late prime minister Indira Gandhi. The film will be titled ‘Mother: The Indira Gandhi Story’. It is gonna be a big budget flick divided into two parts. Shah is working on the casting with Academy Award winning make-up artiste Jenny Shircore.

Shircore believes that Priyanka is the only Bollywood actress whom she can make look like Indira Gandhi after some prosthetic work on her face, Shircore says Priyanka’s face matches that of the late prime minister.

Shah said in a statement, “Yes, I am in conversation with Jenny who thinks that Priyanka is the one who can fit in the character of Indira, but it will be too premature to talk about casting as we have not approached anybody as yet,”

Shah is reportedly also in conversation with other actors like Albert Finney, Emily Watson, Tom Hanks and Tommy Lee Jones to play other characters in the film.

There are several changes made in the script of the movie.

“The script has been reworked after I got my hands on Richard Nixon’s personal tapes related to the 1971 Bangladesh War. My research has changed the script a lot and now we are looking at casting an appropriate face for Indira Gandhi’s character,”
said Shah.

Waow!! Now this flick sounds super interesting. I am sure Piggy Chops will do an amazing job.

Priyanka Chopra launches her official website

Priyanka Chopra is bugged with the fake websites and imposters using her name in social networking sites. So, the actress has now decided to communicate with her fans directly through her official website where she plans to talk about her films, her work, interact with her fans and help them download her pictures.

The website named ‘Iampriyankachopra.com’ was launched by her at Yashraj studios and Priyanka also plans to activate a feature in her website, which will enable her fans to directly communicate with her.

At the launch, Priyanka spoke only about her website and not about her forthcoming films like ‘Anjanna Anjaani’ or her television debut on reality show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’.

“If I will speak about my films and stuff, people will say ’self promotion’, so ‘no self promotion’,” said Priyanka.

Bollywood proves its name

Anjaanaanjaani

This is shocking and rediculous!!! it gets really annoying when you find out that the very poster of an upcoming and most awaited film, produced by a prestigious production house and starring two top stars of the industry, is copied from a Hollywood film that came out just last year. Though Bollywood might sound corny, it is totally appropriate, given the Hindi film industry’s habit of copying Hollywood films, sometimes frame to frame.

The posters of Anjaana Anjaani, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra is ditto copy of director Lone Scherfig’s film An Education (which was nominated for Oscars this year).

Not only are Priyanka and Ranbir in the same pose as Peter Sarsgaard and Carey Mulligan, Ranbir’s shirt and tie is also the same as Peter’s. Poster apart, the film’s plotline itself is learnt to be inspired from the French film La Fille sur le pont (The Girl On The Bridge).

The songs perhaps are the only thing orignal….

Anjaana Anjaani Upcoming Movie


Though Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor will be seen together first time on-screen in ‘Anjaana Anjaani’, their chemistry is already getting rave reviews. Releasing on September 24, the movie is about two strangers Akash (Ranbir Kapoor) and Kiara (Priyanka Chopra) who meet in very ordinary circumstances, fall in love and then realize that they have to part as strangers. The flick witnesses their hilarious, contemporary yet poignant journey of stumbling into all that is worth living for. Made under the banner of Nadiawala Grandson Entertainment, the movie is directed by Siddhartha Anand.

Check out the posters of the flick….
