Abhishek is special: Kareena

NDTV Correspondent

Tuesday, August 21, 2007: (New Delhi):

From Enemy No 1 to Hero No 1, Abhishek Bachchan seems to have come full circle in Kareena Kapoor's life.

No matter what the public perception about Kapoors and Bachchans going to war after Karisma's broken engagement, Bebo insists she has no problems with AB Jr.

"You know he is my Hero No 1. When I entered the film industry, I did my first shot with him. I have seen him learn the ropes as an actor. I have seen him do takes and retakes and I cannot forget shooting with him for Refugee. I have so many unforgettable memories of Abhishek from those days," she said.

While Kareena's mellow response may shock many, it will come as no surprise to those who have always blamed Abhishek for causing the real damage.

If reports appearing in the media are true, AB Jr made it a point not to work with anyone from the Kapoor clan and maintained a distance from Kareena, who was a good friend before.

She also lost out on a Karan Johar project because Abhishek apparently raised a stink. The feisty Kapoor kanya retaliated by turning down Apoorva Lakhia's next film with Junior Bachchan.

Animosity takes backseat

However animosity has since taken a back seat. Rumours even suggest a possible Kareena-Abhishek casting in Randhir Kapoor's new film under the RK banner.

"Your never forget your first hero. He remains special to you. After Refugee, I have worked with many actors, but Abhishek is still special. I am glad to see he has grown so much as an actor," said Kareena.

"He has really struggled to reach where he is today. It was not easy. I have known him from the start of his career and he has improved by leaps and bounds. He has blossomed into a wonderful actor.

"I don't have any grudges against Abhishek for refusing to work with him. It's his personal decision and I bear him no ill will for that. Everyone is free to work according to his or her own choice. He will always be Hero No 1 for me," she said.

With Kareena holding out the olive branch, it remains to be seen if Abhishek will grasp it or choose to continue the battle that has broken so many producers' hearts and kept this hot pair from joining up on screen.

Superstar Amitabh Bachchan and diva Lata Mangeshkar, Indian showbiz' most formidable twosome, have lately discovered a mutual love and admiration for each other.

The bonding between the two is evident from the fact that Amitabh makes it a point to attend any function Lata invites him to.

On Thursday, Amitabh flew down to Pune to inaugurate the cancer wing of Lata's hospital, Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar Memorial Hospital.

The mega-star had flown in from Bangkok just two days ago for a special screening of his new film "Sarkar".

On Thursday evening, he was supposed to attend the premiere of "Sarkar" with Abhishek Bachchan in Hyderabad. After attending the Mumbai premiere Wednesday night he left for Pune Thursday. After attending Lata's function he proceeded the same evening to Hyderabad on a chartered plane.

There was no other way he could attend the event in Pune and the "Sarkar" premiere in Hyderabad on the same day.

This camaraderie between the two started at lyricist Javed Akhtar's 60th birthday bash in January where they were seen laughing and bonding together.

Then when Lata shyly invited Amitabh to receive an award at a function marking her father's death anniversary, the mega-star graciously took time out to be there.

Before leaving for Pune to inaugurate a wing of Lata's hospital, Amitabh said: "It can't be helped. When Lataji asked me to inaugurate a new wing in her hospital I instantly agreed.

"We had spoken about it a month in advance. And there was no question of refusing. No one says no to Lataji. Yes, I had to make special arrangements to attend both her function and the premiere in Hyderabad. The effort was definitely worth it for her sake."

Speaking on the discernible new bonding between them, he observed: "We've always had tremendous respect and love for each other. Maybe now we've more occasions to interact and get to know each other better.

"I adore Lata Didi's sense of humour. There's always a mischievous smile hovering on her face and a twinkle in her eye. She has a joke for every occasion. Does she really say all those wonderful things about me? She's just being kind. She is far ahead of me in every respect."

She is obviously very desirable in the West because of her beauty. She has definitely come a far way since Miss World.

I have enjoyed this piece on Aishwarya Rai and since I am Indian it will be refreshing to her beside Steve Martin in Panther 2.

18 August 2007 (Sawf News) - Bollywood's glamorous couple, Abhisek and Aiswarya Bachchan, announced that the Bachchan's Unforgettable Tour will open in Toronto, while speaking at a press conference in Toronto, Friday, 17 August 2007, attended by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.

Earlier the newly weds were greeted by a large number of their fans outside Toronto's Royal York Hotel, where they made the announcement.

"If all goes well, and God willing, we will premiere the Unforgettable Tour in the city of Toronto because we feel that it is the best city to premiere the tour in," CBC quotes Abhishek Bachchan as saying.

The Unforgettable Tour, first announced in June, during the International Indian Film Academy Awards in Sheffield, England, will begin in summer 2008. It will consist of on stage re-enactments of popular Bollywood song-and-dance items.

The tour is promoted by the Bachchan family - Amitabh Bachchan, 65, his son Abhishek Bachchan, 31, and Abhishek's wife Aishwarya Bachchan, 33, all of them top ranking stars of Bollywood.

Other stars participating in the tour include Lara Dutta, Bipasha Basu and Ritesh Deshmukh.

The tour will transit through 18 countries around the world with sizeable Indian populations and include stops at Vancouver, New York, Los Angeles, London, Cairo, Sydney, Singapore and Hong Kong.

The overseas market, with its comparatively deeper pockets, is becoming increasingly important to Bollywood stars and producers. Besides, promoting themselves and their future films the stars will also attempt to raise awareness about Global Warming

"Terrible, terrible things are happening to this Earth of ours and we want to use this platform to try to acquaint people about what it's about and what they can do," said Abhishek. "We're using this opportunity to spread the word."

A TV special is being contemplated that will focus on the off stage activities of the stars during the tour.

Amitabh BachchanAt 66, Big B still does his own stunts
21st Aug 2007  20.45 IST
By ApunKaChoice  


Amitabh Bachchan insisted on doing his own stunt while shooting a scene for Ravi Chopra's film Bhootnath .

Despite being 66 years of age, Big B still gets charged up while doing challenging scenes. This was evident on the sets of 'Bhootnath', which is being directed by Vivek Sharma.

A scene was being shot in which Mr. Bachchan is shown diving from the first floor over the staircase of a house. Even though a duplicate was ready on the sets to do the scene, Big B insisted that he would do the stunt himself.

Sources from the sets say that the superstar was harnessed with safety cables before doing the stunt. And then he jumped off the first floor. Since the shot had to be taken many times, Big B remained suspended in the air with the help of cables in between the shots.

Not only did he show courage in doing this stunt, he also cracked jokes in between.

After the scene was fully canned, Big B got applause from everyone on the sets.

The film's director says even though he was very concerned about Mr. Bachchan's safety, he let him do the stunt as he (Big B) insisted on doing it. After the shot Sharma did heave a sigh of relief but he also had admiration for Big B's stamina and energy.
