- Amitabh was born Inquilab Shrivastav. Inquilab was also the name of a film he worked.

- The star, who once enjoyed his drink and smoked 200 cigarattes a day, has given it all up!

- He loves gorging on gulab jamuns, especially from Jhama's in Chembur, Mumbai.

- He hates self-service and wants his meals to be served by Jaya. He'd rather not eat than serve himself.

- AB uses the Lomani perfume brought out in his name. In fact, his entire family uses it and he's just run out of stock!

- A strict vegetarian, he loves aloo puri, pakodas, dhoklas and parathas and prefers a penne or a risotto anytime, mostly at the Mezzo Mezzo at the JW Marriott. He has one meal a day with the family, ideally dinner.

- On a normal day, he works out for an hour-and-a-half starting off at around 5 a.m. Earlier, he used to work out at the JW Marriott. Now he has a hi-tech gym installed in his bungalow.

- After he was injured while shooting for Coolie, he was clinically dead for 11 minutes till doctors plunged adrenaline injections into his chest saving his life. Jaya saw his toe move and said, "He's alive!" The scene was incorporated in Major Saab, with Ajay Devgan mouthing the same.

- His Lexus is bulletproof and has Formula 1 style radial tyres worth Rs 2.5 lakh each. The car's global positioning system keeps him on track!

- He has 11 cars; a Rolls Royce Phantom, a Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes SL500, a Porsche Cayman S, a Range Rover, a Lexus LX470, a Mercedes E 240, a BMW X5, a BMW 7 Series, a Mercedes S320 and a Ford Mondeo.

- Amitabh was a good athlete. He used to often win the 100, 200 and 400 metre races, besides the broad jump. He also won a boxing championship once in Sherwood, Nainital. Remember how Jaani wins the boxing bouts in Naseeb?

- In 1983, he burnt his left hand during Diwali and had to get it reconstructed, wrist upwards.

Review: 'Delhi-6'

BY FRANK LOVECE | Special to Newsday
February 20, 2009

(2 1/2 STARS) (unrated)

PLOT A first-generation Indian-American discovers his roots and finds love in Delhi amid Hindu and Muslim tensions.

CAST Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Om Puri

LENGTH 2:20

PLAYING AT Broadway Multiplex Cinemas, Hicksville; Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas

BOTTOM LINE Despite montages set to songs, and a Times Square fantasy sequence, this is a drama of cultural identity and not a bright, bouncy Bollywood musical. Some insights and authenticity, but no "Slumdog Millionaire."

Departing from the Bollywood recipe of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink cinema, "Delhi-6" instead addresses the cultural confusion of a New York desi (first-generation Indian-American) - spending time in India with his dying grandmother. Except for a beguiling musical sequence set in Times Square, its several songs play under montages.

Thirty-something Roshan (major Indian star Abhishek Bachchan) dutifully takes his dying dadi (Waheeda Rahman) home to the old, walled part of Delhi - a neighborhood known by its postal code as Delhi-6. Half-Muslim, half-Hindu and all American, Roshan can't help but patronizingly clod his way through the neighbors' ancient traditions - and less ancient ones, such as bullying police slapping people around and taking bribes.

The neighborliness subsides after a rash of burglaries and mysterious sightings. They're initially blamed on the mythical "Black Monkey," and the media has fun with it at first. But when the local Muslims realize they're the main target, half-breed foreigner Roshan finds himself amid a religious riot - a plot turn more compelling than his unconvincing romance with the lovely Bittu (Sonam Kapoor).

Unvarnished and surprisingly tough on the excesses of both religions, "Delhi-6," nonetheless, remains vague about both America's appeal and the motherland's pull.

Ash defeats the Khans

By: Bollywood Mantra Staff on 20th February 2009

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one such actress in Bollywood who has proved time and again that she is the best. Her popularity has helped her to find a prestigious place in the Forbes list. According to the new Forbes list - Aishwarya Rai is listed as India's most bankable star in Hollywood. Her raking is 387th among 1,411 actors from across the world and ranked much higher than the three Khans who are considered the gems of Bollywood. Aamir ranked 540th in the global list, followed by Shahrukh (735th), Salman (753rd), Irfan Khan (825th) and Hrithik Roshan (1059th). Hollywood star Will Smith bagged the top position.

Ash's demand in the international market never fell down instead it keep on multiplying day by day. She is not only precious in Bollywood but equally valuable overseas. She has again been able to steal the limelight by casting in Pink Panther 2 and by moving across the world with Hollywood stars, Steve Martin and Jean Reno. Recently, Ash attended the premiere of Pink Panther 2 with her family and looked gorgeous as she walked the red carpet in pink gown.

Ash has made a mark in the international market and she is also a winner of many international awards.
