etc : The world according to Americans

Posted: June 24, 2009 by moifightclub in etc, pics

Obama or No-bama, we guess few things will never change. Just look at the map. A friend mailed it to us and we are ROFL. No cinema here. Just some etc.

The world according to americans

Priyanka Chopra ( Best Actress - Fashion )The T-list is becoming longer. At this rate, Twitter will soon replace facebook. The new actor to join the T-Club is Priyank Chopra. Here Twitter address is All you Piggy Chops fans, now stay connected.

Also, regularly Twittering since sometime is her Kaminey co-star Shahid Kapoor. His Twitter address is

Why is Shah Rukh Khan digging his own grave ? Is it difficult to get the star quotient out of your head or is it impossible to hear anything beyond the voice of your cronies! That’s what it looks like. Reminds us of the film Luck By Chance and Hrithik Roshan talking to his image.

Raj Kumar HiraniRaj Kumar Hirani – Greed killed it. Hirani approached Shah Rukh Khan for Three Idiots. Khan offered to produce the film, pay him Rs 25 cr for writing-directing fees and asked Hirani to leave Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Lil did he expect that some people have the guts to say NO to Rs 25 crore. And a NO to Shah rukh Khan. Vidhu Vinod Chopra even asked Hirani to take the offer if Hirani wants it. But Hirani knew what he wanted. When Hirani said NO, Chopra wrote a letter to Shah Rukh Khan and made his views clear. Then the twist happened,  Hirani got Aamir Khan for the same film. Who is having the last laugh ? Need we say more.

Vishal BhardwajVishal Bhardwaj – Ego killed it. Some time back, Bhardwaj approached Shah Rukh Khan for a film. He narrated the script. Khan wanted changes. Disagreement. Vishal was trying to find a way. But Khan’s cronies made it ugly. As if the world moves according to Khan & his cronies, the script should be exactly what the King wants. Vishal left him. According to today’s Mumbai Mirror, now Hrithik Roshan is doing a film with Vishal Bhardwaj. We are waiting to hear more.

ashutosh gowarikerAshutosh Gowariker – Dumbness killed it. We are not great fans of Shah Rukh Khan – the actor. We love him for his intelligence & the great rise from being an outsider to the top. Swades & Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na – are the only two films of Khan which can tolerate. Rest is beyond us. But it seems Shah Rukh doesnt think so.  He wants commercial success.

According to this report, Shah Rukh doesn’t want to work with Ashutosh Gowariker anymore. Has he really lost it ? We think so. And hope that Gowariker gets someone better soon.

That leaves Shah Rukh Khan with only three directors – Karan Johar, Farah Khan & Aditya Chopra. And they will recycle him in same kind of dead boring roles.

Now compare it to Aamir Khan & the the directors that he has worked in recent past..

1. Raj Kumar Hiri – Three Idiots

2. A R Murugadoss – Ghajini

3. Amole Gupte ( writer/creative director ) – Taare Zameen Par 

4. Kunal Kohli – Fanaa 

5. Rakeysh Omprakash mehra – Rang De Basanti

6. Ketan Mehta – The Rising : Mangal Pandey

7. Farhan Akhtar – Dil Chahta Hai

Its not very difficult to guess that Aamir is willing to work with anyone who can convince him. Unlike Shah Rukh, he is not looking for “freinds” who can direct him. He is looking for “directors” who can direct him. And this is surely working in his favour. Shah Rukh, are you listening ? 

And the credit goes to Shiney Ahuja. Kanti Shah ? Shiney Ahuja ?

RapeWhat ? You don’t know Kanti Shah ? Never heard of Kanti Shah !! He is the director who made the cult classic Gunda. If you are a cinema buff, Kanti Shah’s Gunda is a must watch. Lambu Ata, Pote, Chutiya, Ibu Hatela, Bulla, Bachubhai Bhigona – they are all legends. The film is rated 8.0 out of 10 on IMDB

Now, the Shiney Ahuja connection. Indiafm has done an interview with Kanti Shah where he Chamak - The Shinyhas confirmed that his new film Rape is inspired by Shiney Ahuja’s rape case. And it has the hero raping the heroine. 

 And there is more. One more R-grade film is inspired by the same case. Its titled Chamak – The Shiny.  The film exposes the darker side of Bollywood, how people are exploited for roles in the films. Oh yeh, we are waiting! Gimme R-ed! Gimme more!

BTW, for all of you who havent seen Gunda yet, here is a scene from the film. Munni meri behan Munni! Enjoy!
