With benchmarks like Satya & Company, not sure if we need any more 70′s gangster story! But the posters do look impressive!

Kangna RanautNo, dont get us wrong. To be an actress in bollywood, you dont need great IQ. Actually what you need, nobody still knows. You can play any role you want. But…

…Read this news story in today’s Mumbai Mirror about Mani Shankar’s new film starring Sanjay Dutt and Irfan Khan. Kangna Ranaut have been signed to play the role of a tv journalist in a prominent tv channel. Her character is similar to Barkha Dutt ( read character = hair style). Remember Preity Zinta in Lakshaya ?

Now, everything is fine. But Kangna as a tv journalist in a top notch tv channel ? With a diction like hers, that make us love her for the way she shouts out “Baastaard” in almost every film, we wonder which tv journalist can be so bad on air!

After watching Anurag Basu’s Life in a Metro, filmmkaer Anurag Kashyap also could not control himself and gave some tips to the actress..

Kangana, work with Dubeyji ( Satyendra Dubey) to control your lisp, practice your dialogues while biting down on a pencil.. it helps.. she grew on me slowly.. first few scenes, that voice bothered me..

That lisp still continues! We are ROFL wondering how she will report/anchor news. Wish someone could honestly tell her about it. Otherwise, we think she is one gutsy actor who has great potential. The expressions are always right. The problem begins only when she opens her mouth!

For those who care, here is the full list of the winners of IIFA Awards 2009, Macau. It doesnt bother us much. We just go through the list once to check how many winners have “Bachchan” surname or how many surnames are “FOB”, ok thats  Friends Of Bachchans,  thats our cheap thrill !

If there is something called Bollywood Bravery Award, hand it to Kangna Ranaut this year. Because not many actors in bollywood would dare to do so. And its more gutsy if its coming from someone like Kangna, who is single, working and without a godfather in the big bad bollywood! We love her! It might be good publicity for her official website/blog www.kangnaranaut.com , but its still a brave step. Here is the direct link to the blogpost.

Compare it to Amitabh Bachchan’s blog, whose non stop ramblings appear almost everyday. But he has no confessions to make. Just political correctness. Nothing personal to share. Its all oooh-i-love-my-EF’s…extended family… on and on. Whats the point of having a blog if you cant open up and write honestly.  And knowing his track record, we can bet that he will never write on any controversial issue of his life.

The news of Kangna Ranaut’s split with her boyfreind Adhyayan Suman is already out. But to make it official on the blog, it hasnt happened before. We are loving it! Now thats what you call Bold & Beautiful!
