Bang Bang

In a year that has created a record of sorts for women-centric releases in Bollywood, Sonali Cable and Mumbai 125 KM have ended it on a mighty low. Not that any of the two films were expected to do much, but the manner in which they opened and then folded up inside a week was pretty disappointing. Sonali Cable was still expected to bring in some moolah due to the name Rohan Sippy attached to it – however, none of that helped as even 1 crore came at a bargain. On the other hand, Mumbai 125 KM did slightly better due to the 3D, horror and sex factors, but is still a disaster nonetheless.

Haider

Haider

In between all this mayhem, Bang Bang added some more to its collections, hence coming close to the 180 crore mark. Haider found some footfalls too, hence rounding up around 60 crore. Between the two films, around 240 crore have come in which is the highest that Bollywood has seen in the case of a much-hyped clash. Also, this has been the biggest haul ever for pre-Diwali releases, hence bringing an end to the myth that films arriving at this time in theaters do not work.

Jugal Hansraj is the flavour of the month at the MissMalini HQ. Seriously, it’s like everyone is suddenly obsessed with him here. Mallika from Team MissMalini saw him thrice in a row (at Noodle Bar, no less), I saw him walking around Pali Hill the other day and got suddenly, inexplicably excited, and of course Mohabbatein is practically a Sunday TV staple, so… you know. Basically, we’re all going a little crazy here so I’ll just finish this article and hopefully all of us will find someone else to obsess over. But still, Jugal (as a kid, especially) was a definite cutie so he is totally worthy of this attention. Check it  out!

1) That one time he showed off his glorious crooked baby teeth

So cute, so smiley.

2) That one time he showed us how beautiful his eyes are

Adorable kid. #MasoomIsBestMovieEver

3) That one time when he was the reason behind Kim Sharma’s expression

That’s a special kind of smile, given only by a special kind of person.

4) That one time he added more meaning to the term ‘scenic beauty’

Look at the mountains and seas, all glittery and shiny because Jugal is smiling.

5)  That one time he gave us the blues

Blue is indeed the warmest colour when Jugal is around!

So what do you think? Isn’t Jugal worth all the love we give him out here? Isn’t he?

How Salman Khan & Sonam Kapoor Broke The Ice! http://www.missmalini.com/2014/10/24/salman-khan-sonam-kapoor-broke-ice/ http://www.missmalini.com/2014/10/24/salman-khan-sonam-kapoor-broke-ice/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 12:21:39 +0000 http://www.missmalini.com/?p=341477 Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor make for quite an odd pairing.

Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor

Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor make for quite an odd pairing. So when the two got together on sets of Sooraj Barjatya‘s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, there was a lot of ice to break. Salman had seen Sonam growing up, and later when she would come on her dad Anil Kapoor‘s set during No Entry where Salman was his co-star. At that point in time she would address him as ‘sir’.

Of course, a lot has changed now that she has to romance the same man! So, for this film, Salman imposed a ‘no sir’ rule – basically, she had to treat him like an equal, despite the staggering age difference between them!

I have been told that papa Anil Kapoor also helped thaw out things between the two by giving a lowdown to his daughter about Salman’s working ways and how not to get intimidated by him. He also narrated several stories about the pranks Salman has played on most of his co-stars and how to be wary of that!

Apparently, the director of the film – who has worked with Salman in so many films, as you know – also told Sonam how to deal with the star that is Mr Khan. With so much talk about this, I hear Sonam was quite nervous on the first day and it seems several retakes were done for a scene that just required them to exchange glances.

In fact, Sooraj Barjatya purposely didn’t keep any romantic scenes between the two in the initial shooting days as he wanted their chemistry and comfort level to increase with time! The two have worked together before briefly for Saawariya, but a Barjatya movie is a different story entirely!

We all have our deep dark secrets we’d never want anyone to know, EVER! Thankfully (if one is smart and sneaky enough) most of us can hide certain blasts-from-the-past if we’re discreet enough. But what about our celebrities? Our wonderful Bollywood icons who seem perfect to us! They have some dark secrets too, which, like most of us, they guard with their lives. Unfortunately for them, their dark on-screen past always catches up! More than anything else, WE love to catch up with the embarrassing stuff they’ve done on-screen, just to make us feel a little about ourselves. Don’t you? So let’s refresh our memories and check out the ‘sidey‘ movies our stars have done before they made it big in B-town! Read on.

1) Katrina Kaif – Boom

I see you babyyyy...Loved the soundtrack of Boom, not the movie so much. Never thought Katrina Kaif would go on to become the superstar she is now, but must say she’s always been one of the prettiest faces ever! Also, I have a feeling she’d like to delete this movie from her memory, forever.

2) Aamir Khan – Tum Mere Ho

Aamir Khan

Yes, I know about this movie solely due to the fact that it was reviewed by Kanan Gill and Biswa Kalyan Rath (guys please come up with a new review already!). Yes, I also know that I cannot unsee Aamir Khan charming snakes and girls together.

The snake looks like this:

  3) Shah Rukh Khan – Guddu

Have heard that Gauri Khan walked out of this movie… or was it Shakti? Don’t remember, but this movie was the worst. THE WORST! And I am a Shah Rukh Khan fan, so there.

4) Rani Mukerji – Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat

5) Saif Ali Khan – Aashik Aawara

To be honest, all Saif Ali Khan movies were kinda embarrassing before Dil Chahta Hai happened.

6) Salman Khan – Biwi Ho Toh Aisi

Sallu bhai was always cool, even before he made Bhagyashree so drunk in his love that she sang/made conversation with a pigeon.

7) Rekha – Gora Aur Kaala

Rekha wasn’t always the gorgeous diva she is now…

8) Karisma Kapoor – Prem Qaidi

… nor was Karisma Kapoor (formerly known as Karishma Kapoor, the lady whose eyebrows spoke louder than words).

9) Sanjay Dutt – Johny I Love You

I think I’d rather spend a night in jail than watch Johny I Love You.

10) Urmila Matondkar – Shreemaan Aashique

Urmila Matondkar

I’m sure Urmila Matondkar chants ‘Rangeela is my first movie as an adult‘ every night to the universe so that it comes true (she starred as an adorable kid in the wonderful Masoom, remember?). Someday this might come true… but till then we always have Shreemaan Aashique to annoy her with!

Feel free to add more embarrassing movies of the superstars we know and love!

Dekhi lakh lakh pardesi girl, ain’t nobody like my desi girl’! These lyrics speak to every single Indian woman! This week, Elton J Fernandez, YouTube sensation and professional make-up artist, works his magic on MissMalini and shows us how to get the perfect look for a desi night out!

Step 1

Prep your skin with Maybelline Clear Stick BB Glow, to hide any imperfections. Get MissMalini’s flushed cheeks with Cheeky Glow Blush in ‘Creamy Cinnamon’.

Step 2

As Elton rightly stated – a kajal is every Indian woman’s birth right! Dip an angled brush into a gel liner pot, like EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner, and apply it to your upper lids. For an exotic look, line your lower waterline too!

Step 3

Coat your lashes with a volumizing mascara, like The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara.

Pro Tip: Wiggle the mascara wand at the base of your lashes, to separate lashes and prevent clumps!

Step 4

A deep shade of lipstick is essential for a glam look! Apply a deep red shade, such as Maybelline SuperStay 14 Hour Lipstick in ‘Timeless Crimson’.

Pro Tip: Smack your lips together, and blot with a tissue, to get a softer look!

So Brad Pitt was the esteemed guest at Zach Galifianakis‘ hilarious talk show (where the guests don’t really talk that much) Between Two Ferns, and it was obviously the funniest five minutes of my life. Seriously! Zach went all out and asked one of the sexiest men in the world whether he showered enough, and whether he and George Clooney wore tuxedos together and felt like a couple. He also introduced his guest as Bradley Pitts. Yes.

Louis CK also made an entry and performed a stand-up act for a few seconds right before Brad Pitt could answer a question, but obviously the best part was reserved for the last.

Brad, Zach and Louis CK

While asking Brad about his love for Angelina Jolie, Zack asked him if he felt the same way Ross felt for Rachel when he saw Jolie for the first time (Rachel was played by Jennifer Aniston in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Brad’s first wife in case you had forgotten!). He completely ignored the fact that Brad had turned red by now, either due to laughter/embarrassment/anger… one will never know.

Zack then went on to play the theme song of Jennifer’s show F.R.I.E.N.D.S and by now I was laughing so hard, my mom thought I was having an attack! On that note, let’s listen to it again!

I love this song. This show. The cast. Chandler Bing. All of it!

Coming back to the interview (or whatever it was), it ended with Brad spitting his chewing gum on Zach’s face.

That’s the gum. Wonder what gum it is!

It could have been worse, though.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Earlier this year, Singham 2 took the best opening of the year with over 32 crore coming in. Now, it is certain that Happy New Year would comfortably surpass this mark. In fact, it won’t be surprising if 35 crore is crossed, too. And if there is an opportunity for history to be created with a 40 crore day one, this film has it. There is unprecedented curiosity to check out the Shah Rukh Khan-Farah Khan affair. Deepika Padukone is on a career high. Abhishek Bachchan is coming across as good value add for the film, while Sonu Sood and Boman Irani bring on a reliability factor too. As for Vivaan Shah, he could surprise!

Moreover, ever since the promo went on air, there have been relentless rounds of all-around publicity. The momentum has never once slipped while the buzz surrounding the music has escalated too, although one does miss a Sheila Ki Jawaani in there. Still, that has been compensated with an aggressive promotion that Happy New Year has embarked on both nationally as well as internationally.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

The film is arriving with zero competition as there is nothing from the past, present or future to disturb its juggernaut. All of this would make sure that an ample weekend is pretty much confirmed. What matters, though, is how the content works for the film, as that would decide its run beyond the 150 crore mark. Since SRK’s last, Chennai Express, had surpassed 225 crore in total, it is the minimum that this multi-starrer heist-musical would be aiming for.

All said and done, a hefty weekend is pretty much on the cards.
