Ramu accommodates Mrs. Thakur

Kabhi Suchitra Krishnamoorthy Haan Kabhi Naa star and Shekhar Kapur’s ex-wife Suchitra Krishnamoorthy will return to the silver screen in Ram Gopal Varma’s version of yesteryears hit Sholay, titled Ram Gopal Varma ke Sholay, where she would be playing Thakur’s wife. Interestingly, the original version did not have this character and it sure will be a Chunauti for this damsel to portray the role so as to make it just as legendary as the rest of its cast. With Suchitra choosing a mature role for a comeback, all we can hope is that, like wine, time has only benefitted this lass too.

Amping up the ramp!
To many,Saif Ali Khan it might sound as an extension of their job, but if the man in the thick of it – Pataudi Jr. – is to be believed, then he is quite nervous about his maiden walk down the ramp. Saif is due to debut on the ramp, for endorsing a fashion brand, in a show to be choreographed by Mehr Jessia. Though Saif couldn’t make it as a cricketer, he could still learn a few tricks from Pataudi Sr., for Mansoor Ali in his heydays did carry a fair bit of panache on and off the ramp, easily overshadowing the current crop of cricketers and actors.

Dunst is no Miss Muffet!
WhetherMiss Muffet Spider-Man 3 left you thrilled or simply bored, the third installment of this most-loved super-hero flick did set cash registers ringing with over $140 million in its first weekend collection. Now, we’re unaware whether Tobey or Ms. Dunst are up for the next one, but if the leading lady of the movie had her way, then the next version of the movie would be more of a horror flick that would have the couple having eight children, symbolic of the number of spider legs! While the cast for the next movie remains a mystery as yet, let’s hope Sam Raimi is not listening to Mary Jane harp about her maternal dreams!
Meet Ms. ‘Sen’sible
With a Konkona Sen Sharma,promising line-up of films like Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Planman Motion Pictures’ Sunglass and Life in a... Metro, things are looking pretty buoyant for Konkona Sen Sharma, especially after missing out on Mira Nair’s The Namesake. Quiz her on her choice of films and she quips on how it depends on the director, his vision and his financial backup to transform his vision into reality that gets a nod or a nay from the lady. Well, here’s one lady who knows how to play her cards...

The Game continues!
Curtis Jackson, Curtis Jackson,better known as 50 Cent, insists there is no ‘Game’ going on between him and the The Documentary rapper. According to reports, the rapper was furious with Compton rapper, The Game, when he didn’t give 50 Cent due credits on his album, for which he claimed to have penned six songs. The rift emerged in 2005 and much has transpired since, but now 50 Cent says that the fallout is a one-way deal and has nothing to do with him, for he has his own commercial interests in mind. For The Game works for him and the more his albums sell the mo’ money 50 Cent makes!

Pregnant with hope
British supermodel Kate MossKate Moss is anxious to start a family with beau Pete Doherty. The dainty lady already has a four-year-old child from her previous liaison with Jefferson Hack – editor and co-founder of Dazed & Confused – while Pete Doherty – member of the band Babyshambles, known for his drug dalliances and frequent visits to rehabs – has a son from his previous love Lisa Moorish. Back on track, professionally and even cocaine free, Moss sure seems ready to go down the path of motherhood once again.

Christina does a favour
From essaying Christina Ricciroles as a child artist in movies Casper, Now and Then, Stand by Me, to playing roles as an adult actress in movies such as Sleepy Hollow, The Ice Storm or The Opposite of Sex, Christina Ricci has played her characters impeccably! Whilst other Hollywood beauties sign handsome deals with reputed product makers to represent them as their brand ambassadors, Ricci is set to represent the Abuse, Incest and Rape network by meeting members from the United States Congress and discuss issues related to sexual abuse and victimisation of women. Considering her proclivity for precision, we are certain Christina would essay this new role to perfection too!
