Aamir Khan hopes ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ beats ’3 Idiots’ success

 Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani starrer ‘Ferrari Ki Sawari’ hits the theatres today and Aamir Khan hopes that the film does so well at the box office that it beats the success of their movie “3 Idiots”.
“I am here to wish the entire team. I am sure they have made a good film and Sharman is a nice actor and our wishes are with them. We want everyone who watched ’3 Idiots’ to watch ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ also. We wish that this film goes far beyond ’3 Idiots’,” the 47-year-old said here Thursday at the premiere of the film.
‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ is Rajesh Mapuskar’s directorial debut and has been produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Rajkumar Hirani, who has edited the film, stated that the intention was to make a film for under Rs.100 crore.
“The film has not been made with the intention of crossing the Rs.100 crore mark. If that had been our intention, we would have been making at least one film a year. I take three years to make a film. If money was the intention, then every year we would have been making two films,” said Hirani.
“Ferrari Ki Sawaari” tells the story of a father who will go to any length to fulfil his son’s dream of becoming a cricketer.

'Ninja Turtles' Reboot Gets Delayed Due to Script Issue

 Michael Bay-produced "Ninja Turtles" is facing a trouble. Paramount Pictures has decided to delay the production of the effects-heavy film project, which was originally set to be released in the U.S. in December 2013. The movie, which was in pre-production stage in Vancouver, has now been pushed back to May 2014.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the abrupt decision was made due to the script issue. Insiders said that Paramount is now temporarily laying off the film's crew and telling them that the work stoppage is "indefinite." Another source revealed that the project has been pushed by ten weeks.

"Ninja Turtles" is a joint production between Paramount and Viacom's Nickelodeon. Back in May, when announcing the project, Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman gushed, "Our pipeline is extremely strong. We're developing more new [episodes] of our popular series and more exciting series. And of course, we're particularly excited about the revival of the [Teenage Mutant Ninja] Turtles franchise."

While Bay served as the producer, "Wrath of the Titans" helmer Johnathan Liebesman was tapped to direct the live action/CGI combo movie which was predicted to cost an estimated $100 million to produce. Providing the script, meanwhile, were Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec.

The project had grabbed attention from fans, especially since Bay revealed his plan to put some twists to the original plot line. Instead of presenting Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael as mutants, the "Transformers" helmer said that the quartet will appear as aliens in the planned film.

"These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable," so he said while attending the 2012 Nickelodeon Upfront in March. "When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie."

As for Paramount, this is not the first time the studio halts the production of its potential tentpoles. The studio, which recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, has delayed the release dates for Channing Tatum's "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and Brad Pitt's "World War Z" due to script issue.

Lindsay Lohan Is Fine After Doctor Is Called to Her Hotel Room

 Lindsay Lohan was rumored to be found unconscious in her hotel room on Friday morning, June 15 and sent to hospital, but the story was denied by her publicist Steve Honig. The representative said paramedics indeed checked on her, but she was never hospitalized or collapsed. She is fine and resting now, the rep insisted.

The doctor was called to Lindsay's room at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey by "concerned" producers "as a precaution" when she did not come out of her room. She reportedly was due to continue filming her new movie "Liz & Dick" that day, but she informed someone on set that she wasn't feeling well and needed a break.

The doctor reportedly called ahead to the hotel and had someone from the hotel check on the 25-year-old actress. When she didn't answer the door and the staff couldn't get in, a 911 call was made. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's office later described her condition as "groggy," but she's "OK as far as we know."

Honig explained that Lindsay didn't answer the door because she was falling asleep. "Lindsay worked a grueling schedule the past few days. She was on set last night at 7 pm and worked through the night until 8 am this morning. She took a nap before shooting her final scene," the rep explained.

The publicist confirmed Lindsay, who's involved in a car crash recently, was indeed "examined" but she's "fine." He added, "[She] did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. Lindsay was never taken to a hospital; reports to the contrary are false. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon."

Her attorney Shawn Holley additionally told Eyewitness News, "As I understand it, she was exhausted, after shooting non-stop for 2 days." The lawyer added, "They determined that she was fine."

Kim Kardashian Has Had Enough of Dating Younger Guys

 When visiting the Kardashians, Oprah Winfrey had a one-on-one chat with one of its famous daughters Kim Kardashian. The host grilled the estranged wife of Kris Humphries with questions about her failed marriage with the NBA star and her relationship with her new beau Kanye West, 35.

"I feel like I've had an epiphany," Kim said of how her divorce changed her as a person. "A lot of my friends, people that I love to just sit and talk to and spend time with, are wiser and a little bit older than me. Before, all my boyfriends were younger. I always dated five years younger. My whole thing was completely different."

"And now I just love that I'm with someone that's a couple years older than me," the 31-year-old reality TV star added. "I love that my friends are sometimes even 20, 30 years older than me. That I can just enjoy their company and their experiences."

"It's like how Kourtney had this epiphany when she had her baby and she changed into a different person, I feel like I've had an epiphany over the last year," she continued. "For what I've been through I am that changed person, just from my own experiences."

In the next episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" that will air June 17, Oprah also asked Kim about the persistent rumors that her fairytale wedding with 27-year-old Kris was a stunt. Some other burning questions included "is Kanye West the new fairytale?" and "do you think you'd be here if you hadn't had a sex tape?"

Kristen Stewart Wants Bella in 'Breaking Dawn II' to Be the Best Vampire

 After playing clumsy teen Bella Swan in the first four "Twilight Saga" films, Kristen Stewart will finally have a drastic transformation as a vampire in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II". Admitting that she's excited by her new form, Kristen gushed that she wants her famous character to be the best vampire.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 22-year-old actress shared that she learned from her "Twilight" co-stars about how to play a vampire. "I knew every single version of vampire, and I took a little bit from everyone," she said. "But I wanted her to be the best."

Kristen went on recalling the unforgettable moment where she had to film a scene where vampire Bella hunts a mountain lion. "I leaped through the air and tackled a crazy huge tube of foam shaped like a mountain lion," she remembered. "I ripped that mother to the ground! For the first time I was like, 'Wow', I'm, like, really playing a vampire now."

Though happy with Bella's vampire transformation, Kristen did feel uncomfortable when adjusting herself to the makeover. Her co-star Robert Pattinson said that Kristen always complained about the red contact lenses that she must wear when portraying the bloodsucker.

"Kristen complained about 500 times more than I have," the Edward Cullen depicter said. "She condensed four years of complaining a few months," the actor joked to which Kristen responded with a sigh.

On the other hand, Taylor Lautner gushed that Bella's transformation is something that Twi-hards have been eagerly waiting for. "That's kind of the huge thing that fans are waiting for - to see the clumsy teenage Bella that Kristen did so well suddenly become this super-sexy vampire who's athletic and graceful," he gushed. "She took it very seriously and pulls it off."

"Breaking Dawn II" focuses on a perilous chain of events after Bella gives birth to Renesmee. Along with her husband Edward and his family, she now must face an all-out battle against the Volturi, which is the fearsome council of vampire leaders.

Joining Kristen, Rob and Taylor in the final installment of the famous vampire film series is Mackenzie Foy, who will make her debut in the franchise as Renesmee. The movie will make its way out onto the U.S. theaters on November 16.

Justin Bieber to Release Second Perfume 'Girlfriend'

 Following the massive success of his first fragrance for women "Someday", Justin Bieber is gearing up to release a second perfume for his female fans called "Girlfriend". He is going to release the scent on June 18, a day before his new album "Believe" makes its out in the United States.

While the first one is bottled in a clear glass with its lid featuring overlapping heart petals that form into the shape of a rose, this new one comes in a pink-and-purple spray bottle. It's additionally caged in a multi-colored criss-crossed cocoon.

To promote the fragrance, Bieber launched a sing-off competition. He invites his fans to send a video of them covering his single "Boyfriend" and changed every "Boyfriend" word with "Girlfriend". The chosen ones will get their video aired during his NBC Special on June 21. A few special selects will be included in an commercial for the scent.

Bieber became a world idol at record time, and at the age of 18, he's now stepping into adulthood. "Adult artist? Just because he's legal now doesn't mean he's an adult," his manager, Scooter Braun argued to Billboard. "He still needs guidance; he's still finding his way. He's no longer a boy, but he's definitely not yet a man."

He then praised the teen for handling the media scrutiny quite well. "No one in the history of the world has ever grown up with the pressure that he has, being a solo artist that young, that famous, in a world with technology that exposes us 24/7," he gushed.

"He was literally going through puberty in front of the entire world, with everyone expecting something from him and a lot people waiting for him to screw up. He's a fighter. I'm proud of him - how's he's stayed true to himself and taken control of the entire situation."

"[The Twilight cast is] all around the same age and we're really not polite to each other anymore," the Edward Cullen depicter says in an interview for the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.

As for Kristen, the Bella depicter opens up that she developed chemistry with the young star since both of them have physical similarities. The 22-year-old actress gushes that their "hands [even] look similar. It was kind of strange. But it's funny how it actually helps. It's like, 'Oh, hey, you look like me, kid! Come on!' "

Along with her husband Edward and his family, she now must face an all-out battle against the Volturi, which is the fearsome council of vampire leaders.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Mourns the Loss of Her Mother Patricia

 Jennifer Love Hewitt is grieving the loss of her mother and best friend, Patricia. The 67-year-old speech-language pathologist lost her battle against cancer on Tuesday, June 12, the actress' representative confirms to the press.

"Her family mourns her loss," the publicist says in a statement. "She was an angel to all who knew her and they are grateful she is now in a better place. They ask for privacy at this difficult time. No further details are being provided."

33-year-old Jennifer flew to Monte Carlo on Monday for an appearance in a TV and film festival to promote her new TV series "The Client List". The ex-girlfriend of Alex Beh reportedly headed back home on Tuesday before her mother passed away.

Jennifer and her mother were very close. They moved from Texas to L.A. in 1989 for her to pursue a career in show business. She starred in TV show "Kids Incorporated" in the next year, and continued to score roles in small- and big-screen projects in the following years.

Patricia was very supportive of Jennifer's career, and found her daughter's role as a prostitute in the "Client List" hilarious. "[She said] 'For 15 years people have been talking about your boobs. Earlier this year, you wrote about your hoo haw in a book. Now you're playing a crack ho on TV.' She was like, 'Do you think maybe you could do an animated movie next?'," the actress opened up.

Jennifer herself explained her decision to reprise the role she played in the 2010 TV movie of the same name because she "needed a little bit of a re-creation." She told The Times, "I looked at my career and thought, 'Let's shake it up a little bit. Let's have butterflies in our stomach'."

Patricia is survived by Jennifer and a son, Dr. Todd Hewitt.

The movie will mark Lee's first 3D creation. The "Brokeback Mountain" helmer once admitted that he had an "intimidating" experience when shooting in the hi-def format. "I was very intimidated," so he confessed. "We're still novices at this. It's hard to shoot in 3D, but it makes it more interesting. The experience is more intense."

An adaptation of Yann Martel's bestselling novel, "Life of Pi" will make its way out onto the U.S. theaters on December 21. The movie is also supported by Tobey Maguire, Tabu, Irrfan Khan and Adil Hussain.

"I never thought I could be loved this much...," Justin said to his fans in the two-and-a-half-minute video, which was taped via smartphone on the backstage of his Mexican gig. Donning a white shirt paired with a hooded blue vest, the 18-year-old singer gushed, "I can't say how thankful I am."

Justin stopped by Mexico City as a part of his "All Around the World" tour to promote his upcoming album "Believe", which is due in the U.S. on June 19. After perfoming in Oslo, Paris, London and Berlin, he took some time to throw a free gig for a crowd of nearly 300,000 people in Mexico.

Lindsay Lohan Cast as Materialistic Girlfriend in Sexual Thriller 'The Canyons'

 Hot on heels of her involvement in TV movie "Liz & Dick", Lindsay Lohan snatches a new job in a big screen project. The 25-year-old actress has been tapped to star in an indie sexual thriller called "The Canyons", which script is written by "American Psycho" scribe Bret Easton Ellis.

Taking to his Twitter, he shared, "James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will star in THE CANYONS," before adding, "And I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in THE CANYONS by BEE."

Bret, who recently admitted he's strongly interested in adapting "Fifty Shades of Grey", went on revealing when "The Canyons" will kick off its production. He tweeted, "Shooting THE CANYONS starring James Deen and Lindsay Lohan: July 9-31 in L.A. Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it..."

Later on, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the new project, which has just closed its funding via Kickstarter, will be directed by Paul Schrader.

The source added, "The appeal of this role for Lindsay is getting to work with Paul Schrader. He's an amazing filmmaker and it's an amazing role for her. She couldn't be happier. Although if she's had a problem with James Deen, she wouldn't have pursued the role."

New 'Brave' Clip Shows Unruly Triplets Performing Hilarious Play

 Walt Disney Pictures has revealed another clip to promote its forthcoming summer tentpole "Brave". Being titled "Triple Play", the snippet features a hilarious scene where Queen Elinor introduces her unruly triplets, Harris, Hubert, and Hamish, in a war play which soon becomes a mess as the three start to deliver performances with their fake weapons.

The naughty triplets are the son of King Fergus and the younger brothers to Merida, a Scottish princess who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Determined to carve her own path in life, the princess defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land.

Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces the princess to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

"Brave" is slated for a June 22 release in cinemas across the United States. Rounding up the voice cast ensemble are Kelly Macdonald as Merida, Billy Connolly as Fergus, and Emma Thompson as Elinor.

In text messages obtained by TMZ from Miss USA organization sources revealed that Sheena complained to a pageant official named Randy about the inclusion of Marybel and Erika on the list. "This is f***ing rigged," she allegedly confided. "Seriously? Colorado? South Carolina?"

"I'm done. This is ridiculous," she reportedly continued her rant. "It's obviously rigged so the girl they want can shine; they kept several beautiful girls out for that reason." According to the insiders, the text messages proved that her "rigged" accusation was emotionally-motivated, not based on any facts

Sheena accused the Miss USA organizers of fixing the Top 5 before the final show when she resigned her position as Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012. She claimed a fellow contestant "saw a folder lying open to a page that said 'FINAL SHOW Telecast, June 3, 2012' and she saw the places for Top 5 already filled in."

Joe Jonas and Marilu Henner, who served as judges along with Rob Kardashian, Arsenio Hall, Ali Fedotowsky, Dayana Mendoza, Cat Cora and George Kotsiopoulos, denied the allegation. Presenter Giuliana Rancic also called it BS.

Donald Trump demanded Sheena to take back her "utterly baseless claim". When the retraction request was ignored, the business tycoon who is also the owner of Miss Universe Organization sued her for defamation.

Lindsay Lohan Suspected of Lying About Car Crash

 Lindsay Lohan reportedly has fed police with lie. The 25-year-old troubled actress told police investigating her car crash that she didn't sit behind the wheel, but her male companion contradicted her statement. The man, who was in the car when the accident happened, testified to the officers that she's the driver.

Several witnesses at the scene told TMZ that Lindsay and her companion both got out of the car on the passenger side after the wreck. Police reportedly will include her alleged lie in their report, which could trigger a probation violation in her shoplifting case. If she's convicted of giving false information, she could face the possibility of jail on 2 fronts.

The actress, who plays Elizabeth Taylor in TV movie "Liz & Dick", reportedly was questioned while she was still in hospital getting checked out "as a precaution" after the accident. She and her companion were treated for minor bumps and bruises, but nothing was serious. She was later released and was back to work.

Lindsay previously claimed the accident happened because she was cut off by a semi-truck and when she tried to stop her rented Porche, the brakes didn't work. The trucker, meanwhile, said Lindsay was "flying" on the highway and there's no way he could cut her off because he was already in the right lane when the accident occurred.

The trucker also accused the star of trying to bribe him, which she strongly denied as well. He reportedly has hired a lawyer to go to court in an effort to seek compensations for his pain and trouble. He previously said he was fine, but later confessed he was actually injured in the car crash and saw a doctor Sunday, June 10.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' Unveils Action-Packed B-Roll Footage

 Promoting its summer tentpole pic "The Amazing Spider-Man", Columbia Pictures unleashes a set of B-roll videos for the Marvel superhero movie. In a total of around 25 minutes, the clips unveil behind-the-scene footage that highlights the making of various fight and action scenes involving Andrew Garfield. Scenes featuring Rhys Ifans and Emma Stone are also included in the promotional videos.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" promises to reveal "the untold story" of Peter Parker a.k.a Spidey. Like most teenagers his age, he is trying to figure out who he is and how he to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together, he uncovers a secret that his father held. The secret will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man.

Director Webb once explained that he wanted to explore Parker's secret story which is connected to his origin. "I wanted to treat Peter Parker in a more naturalistic way," he said. "I think there are a lot of things from Spider-Man canon that haven't been explored cinematically."

"This movie really starts off with Peter Parker and his parents, which is something we've never really seen before," he gushed. "And I think that was something we were all really interested in exploring as filmmakers."

Due to arrive in cinemas across the U.S. on July 3, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is also supported by Sally Field as aunt May Parker, Martin Sheen as uncle Ben Parker, and Denis Leary as Captain George Stacy.

Trucker Said Lindsay Lohan Tried to Bribe Him After Accident

 While police are investigating who was at fault in the wreck between Lindsay Lohan and a dump truck driver, the latter gave his side of story. The trucker said the actress was responsible for rear-ending his vehicle on the Pacific Coast Highway on Friday, June 8 but did not want things to go out in the media.

Lohan was driving her rented Porsche with her assistant as passenger while a Cadillac Escalade followed her from behind. The driver, James, said Lohan exited her car and moved to the other vehicle after crashing her Porsche onto the back of his truck. Lohan's assistant and Escalade driver then approached him but he already called 911.

James believed Lohan was at fault because she was "flying" on the highway. James claimed he saw the assistant stuffing something into a pink bag and covered it with clothes. The assistant and Escalade driver also attempted to give him cash in order for him to keep quiet.

"Him and the guy took me across the street and told me this was some kind of famous person and they didn't want to be in the media," James told TMZ. "But I'd already called 911 because they were trying to get away from the scene. But they packed a bag and then the limousine driver told me, 'Don't mention the bag to the cops'."

Lohan has been released from hospital since the accident. Her rep, Steve Honig said, "Lindsay is cooperating fully with law enforcement. She has answered all their questions and provided them with everything they have asked for."
