Mim-Oh, aah, oouch! We knew that Ashutosh Gowariker was looking for an actor to play the lead in his big budget international film Buddha. But we had no clue that he would settle so close! Film critic Rajeev Masand tweeted about the casting news today evening. Its not confirmed yet but seems he is surely there.

Yes, we also want to know the same. What has he seen in Mimoh ? From which angle ? Where and how ? Or is it gonna be Har-Man/Hurr-Man/Whatever-Man casting redux and one more Whats Your T-rashee ? And if it is all about a star kid, then why this talent hunt ?

Also, Gautam Buddha must be turning in his grave. If you don’t believe us, click here. Why suddenly after 1000 years ? Or is it just a coincidence! We guess it has to do something with Mim-OoH….aah…ouch! We have already started Buddhist chanting!

After lot of psycho-blabbering, Shekhar Kapoor finally making headlines for the right reasons. First, he made it to the Cannes Feature Film Jury and now the news is that Oscar winning actor Chritoph Waltz might be one of the leads of his long-in-the-making-magnum-opus Paani. Wow! This is what Shekhar Kapoor tweeted recently –

Christoph Waltz, who won the Oscar for his brilliant performance in Inglorious Bastards is very likely 1 of lead parts in Paani

And talking of Christoph Waltz, have you seen this brillant hump video featuring him. If not, do watch it!

Moving from SK to SRK. The news doing the rounds was that Shah Rukh Khan has patched up with Vidhu Vinod Chopra and will soon will be starring in VVC’s next production titled Ferrari Ki Sawaari.  To be directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, the script of the film has been ready for quite sometime. But recently Shah Rukh Khan denied the news on twitter. He tweeted…

have not been asked for ferari ki sawaari/mukesh mills havent shot there for a while/business decision only based on passion/

Yes, SRK’s tweets are always like MCQ’s, rather Answers. One tweet, multiple answer. So, focus only on the first answer – have not been asked for ferari ki sawaari.

And the third casting news is about Amitabh Bachchan & Mohanlal. Lots have been said about these two acting giants coming together in a film to be directed by Captain Ravi. But to spoil the part a  bit, it seems Bachchan’s role in the film is only guest appearace. Seems Bachchan is  Teen Patti’s Ben Kingsley this time. This is what Amitabh Bachchan blogged recently…

Its a small guest appearance and I had agreed. They had come over to officially sign me on and make payments etc.. Ha..!! Payments ? Fees ? Remuneration ? For a guest appearance of 3 days ? With MohanLal who has always had my greatest admiration ? No way !! I don’t charge money for such acts. And told them so.

I shall just gloat in the honor that I shall derive by working in a Malayalam film and that too with the exceptional MohanLal !! Respectfully declined their offer, gave them some home made tea, shook hands, embraced and saw them off. It will probably be shot in Ooty, the picturesque and quaint hill station in the beautiful Nilgiri Range of mountains down south.
