Hello friends! It's clearly a week where headlines were ruled by celebrities. While actresses like Vidya Balan, Aishwarya Rai and Freida Pinto were a shame at the festival with their Indian outfits, actress Sonam Kapoor was a breath of fresh air, although I did not like her clothes either. The other names that caught my attention this week were, Madhuri Dixit, Angelina Jolie, Sanjay Dutt and now Michael Jackson. Folks, the dancing diva, Mohini aka Madhuri Dixit is back, with her expressive, vivacious, energetic, dance steps. Unfortunately, she has been misused as an item girl. A lady with such grace and dignity has also stooped to this level. How unfortunate! I know Ranbir had a desire to work with MD, but what was he thinking- really? The song does not work as RK and MD do not look good together. This goes to prove that chemistry is a vital part between a pair in a song, dance sequence. And with a name like "Ghagra" to the song, one would expect MD to wear gorgeous Manish Malhotra designed heavy Ghagra cholis. Alas! I was disappointed with the tacky outfits. I know its because the song is taking place at a brothel. I still could not digest this in the case of MD. The song however, is growing on me. I noticed that the word Via-Agra is chosen very intelligently. Vishal and Shekar do justice to the tune. I liked Rekha Bhardwaj's voice in the song "Namak" from her "Omkara" days. She is sounding good here too. Judge for yourself. I have posted it as the Song of the day below.
It's women power all the way. As if adopting so many children and taking care of them was not enough of an achievement, this gorgeous lady called Angelina Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carried a gene that increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Not only that, I heard this morning on the radio, that she is considering another surgery to remover her ovaries too! True definition of a diva. Beauty with brains all the way. A pioneer! It must have been a tough decision for a girl known for her beauty to go under the knife for the "right" reason for once And Brad Pitt deserves a honorary mention here for great support. An unusual couple for sure.
Poor Sanjay Dutt, finally surrendered to serve the remaining three-and-a-half years of his prison term today for possessing illegal arms in a case linked to the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case. In the end Cine stars are real people with emotions. A 53 year old man, who had finally proved to become a good citizen, is behind bars now, when so many real criminal are freely roaming the streets of India. So sad the Indian Judicial system takes so long to give a verdict. Like Mahesh Bhatt said "To assert that Sanju must be totally cut off from society because he is absolutely evil amounts to saying that society is absolutely good". Hmm something to think about. Sanju Baba, hope you come out of jail stronger. Three-and-a-half years will fly by.
Wade Robson, a dancer who frequently visited Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch as a child, called MJ a pedophile and a child sexual abuser" in an interview Thursday on NBC's "Today Show. He said Jackson "performed sexual acts on him and forced him to perform sexual acts on him" from ages 7 to 14. The question remains why is wade revealing this today, after MJ's death? MJ's Nephew Taj Jackson is defending MJ on Twitter. I am sure, time will shed more light on this mystery. Till then. lets all stay glued to the idiot box. I can't stand the gossip of celebrities' lives, all the time! Every minute! Ok, who am I kidding. It's hard to find normal celebrities. That's what makes them interesting. Shub Ratri folks.
