Homophobia is gross, not the picture

4Dec

POSTED BY

Picture 44

Whether this picture was altered, a film still or a causal friendly kiss; I should take a stance and say there’s nothing wrong with it. But the way it was posted on facebook sends a clear message of homophobia. This year alone, several teens/young adults have committed suicide due to being outed/teased for their sexuality. Look at Karan Johar, about 80% of the time, interviewers have to ask him about his sexuality. It’s amazing he hasn’t cracked under pressure. I love it when he mocks the interviewer right back. Good for you Karan! Frankly it doesn’t bother me if he is gay or not, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s the most sought out producer/director in Bollywood. The irony is the people who do the gay bashing, you are still spending your money to go see his films – hypocrites. In case you don’t know what a hypocrite is, here’s the definition. (UPDATE BELOW WHERE THIS ORIGINATED FROM)

Comments for the pic to far…but for the folks who didn’t post the homophobic remarks. Thank you.

Prince Aabir sala gay. salman is the man

Armaan Got Sumone yah salman is the man baki to salay homo sexualhote ja rahe hn… chee

**Update**

So this picture is actually unreleased footage from My Name is Khan, but what even with Section 377 outlawed in India, these host have no idea the type of homophobic undertone they are sending to the audience. I’m curious to see if there is more to this kiss or was it just SRK’s character in the film being spontaneous.

Jay Sean ditches the Grammy for an Oscar?

Picture 23

Not far from it, don’t worry Jay Sean fans, your boy is still going to be producing/singing, but the double platinum artist has been receiving a lot of offers from Hollywood and Bollywood. I could picture him as a gangster in a Bollywood film, what do you think? For Hollywood…hmmm. A con artist? He’s got that sexy british accent, which makes all you women go goo-goo eyes over him.

While he was in primary school, he won a lot of awards for his acting. Although he wants to be careful and not just “settle” for “any” role, it has to be a quality film, but he can easily picture himself transition from music to movies. But I believe his heart is devoted to his music.

“I think singers, especially in my genre of music, like everything around them to be really cool. They are afraid to look stupid or silly. But in my case, I’d love to do just that, to show my diverse personality. I’d love to be stupid or silly on screen, if given a chance!” says Jay.

Big Plans for POL Soundtrack

Picture 69

Russell (Uncle Rush) Simmons (left) will be taking the “Politics of Love” soundtrack under his wing along with the POL music supervisor Craig Nobles (right). With Uncle Rush’s expertise, the soundtrack is going to be off the hook. I’ve always had a soft spot for soundtracks, take Bollywood for example the movie might be crap, but the music is good. That was a statement I used to hear from a lot of my friends “the movie sucked, but the music was good” haha. I have high hopes for “Politics of Love” as of now, Mallika seems to be having a lot of fun soaking it up in La La land.

Mallika – Is it too much???

29Jul

POSTED BY

Picture 23

The press in India dismissed this photo as Mallika being “topless” but she really has on a body suit. This is one of the promo pictures for her movie “Hissss” she tweeted this photo and asked “is this too much?”

She’s very candid and honest when she tweets back to her fans, in fact someone was bold enough to ask if she would ever pose topless or nude? Mallika firmly replied – NEVER!

That probably burst the fantasy bubble of millions! Mallika is no stranger to controversy, she knows the rules of Hollywood and knows it’s just acting. In fact, controversial roles, I believe, keeps things challenging and interesting for actors. But for the wider audience in India, it’s hard to grasp. Take Aishiwarya Rai for example… one of her rules if she was going to play a Bond girl, there would be no kissing or no love scenes; those rules don’t apply in Hollywood.

So the media in India, get it right, get a grip – it’s just a body suit. She’s NOT topless.  Mallika is just doing what she does best – acting.

Ps. Mallika the picture isn’t “too much” it’s a nice shot!

Sensazn Magazine calls it quits!

When I lived in Hayes, UK… I loved going to one of shops in Southall and picking up Sensazn Magazine… just the name itself was so catchy…I loved the articles and even wanted to write for them at one point. It’s sad to see that after a couple of years, they decided to close shop. Not even maintaining their online website… media of all types are really feeling the lack of businesses willing to advertise. No advertisement = no money = no magazine. Sad but true.

here’s the letter from the editor…

Thank you for all your love and support over the past few years…we really do appreciate it! Due to the relevant slow down in the advertising markets, we’ve decided not to take Sensazn any further, both in print and online.

It’s been a very eventful and exciting time since 2008, and I personally want to thank each and every supporter, reader, and everyone that provided us with the words of kindness and encouragement to keep us going, in particular  I’d would like to thank each and every member of the Sensazn team, who put in the time, effort, sweat and blood to make and create the great content that we did.

Anyone who spared a second of their time for us. You all know who you are, and every second dedicated has been appreciated more than you think.

We made a positive impact in the music scene, and then later in other areas, but as with all good things – one day it must come to an end.

Thank you.

What Do I get out of Following Shilpa Shetty?

10Jul

POSTED BY

Picture 6

Almost every one in Bollywood is jumping on the Twitter Bandwagon, it’s no secret this is a new way for Bollywood fans from all around the world to get “minute by minute” updates from their favorite Bollywood stars. I get my daily wisdom from Karan Johar @kjohar25 , random ass tweets from Abhishek Bachchan @juniorbachchan and health tips from Shilpa Shetty @theshilpashetty .

I was a bit skeptical following Shilpa, a couple of years ago, I went on a wild goose chase with this so called “agent” that was suppose to put me in touch with Shilpa for an interview. It never happen and then the agent was caught and arrested for fraud. The twitter account got verified (a way to tell a fake account from the real deal) and I became a Shetty follower.

At the Delhi airport, I came across Shetty’s yoga video, I was tempted to buy it but took the lazy way out and watched it on youtube. When it came to “downward dog” I had this enormous laughing fit, it happen to me a long time ago, when I attended a yoga couples class with an ex. Needless to say, the ex was embarrassed, we left early and never got a chance to reach “the couples zen state of mind” platform.

It’s no secret, Shilpa is a very health conscious woman, her tweets certainly prove that. I think she was looking for her own “nitch” to use twitter, instead of posting random Bollywood tidbits, most fans thrive on. In Mumbai, Shilpa introduced a weight loss program called Inch Lost Wrap “ILW” a holistic alternative for people who want to get a tighter waist. The wrap drains out toxins that have built up inside our bodies. It shrinks the fat cells, but doesn’t get rid of the them, so the client must understand this is used to loss inches around your waist.

Currently she’s away on summer holiday in her South East home in London, with hubby Raj Kundra.
