Bollywood Sexy Dhamaal News of the Week

Katrina Kaif sister has come into Bollywood RACEIsabel, a young starlet from the United Kingdom, is bent upon gatecrashing into Bollywood. But why is Salman Khan equally bent upon helping her out? It would be natural for anyone maybe, not only for Salman, to play godfather to a sexy young thing especially if she has a striking resemblance to his steady Katrina (remember how he cast Sneha Ullal, an Aishwarya Rai look-alike, in Lucky?). What's more, Isabel even shares Katrina's surname, Kaif! Well, she would share the surname, but not Katrina's boyfriend Salman. That's bvecause she is one of the seven Kaif sisters, and Katrina happens to be one of them READ MORE

Himesh shoots three songs for Karzzzz in South Africa

The unit of Satish Kaushik's Karzzzz came into a bit of serious scare when political unrest and widespread riot broke out in one of the film's primary locations in Kenya. The location was then shifted to South Africa.

Says Himesh, "I really don't know what had happened. But the producer, Bhushan Kumar, and director Satish Kaushik heard the news about the widespread political unrest in Kenya. So, they decided to shift the location for Karzzz from Kenya to South Africa."

Adds Satish Kaushik, "I was very keen to shoot Karzzz in Nairobi. But there was turmoil right across Kenya! I also wanted to shoot some key action scenes with Himesh involving aircrafts in Mombasa which is such a beautiful place. But we quickly had to shift location because riots broke out days before we were supposed to start shooting. So, we shifted the action scenes to Cape Town."

Himesh, recently, shot at the posh casino at the Emperor Palace in Johannesberg. Says Satish, "We shot two lavish songs in this location with Himesh, his leading lady Shweta and Raj Babbar. The first song was a party song 'Mashallah Tera Chehra' when Himesh sees Shweta for the first time. We shot with a group of ballroom dancers from a well-known troupe in South Africa. The second song 'Rab Kare Main Mar Javan' was a romantic duet with Himesh and Shweta with fifty hip-hop and cabaret dancers. I'm now shooting a background song 'Dhoom Tere Ishq Ki'."

Satish is happy with the performance of Indra Kumar's daughter who stars opposite Himesh. "I had auditioned her before signing her. She's got what it takes. I should know because I've in the past introduced Tabu in Prem, Bhumika Chawla in Tere Naam and Sheena Shahabadi in my forthcoming Tere Sang. So I guess I'm qualified to recognize talent."

Satish promises that the songs in his Karzzz would be on a scale that we've seen in Subhash Ghai's Karz. "But let me make it clear that Himesh and I aren't trying to compete with Rishi Kapoor and Subhash Ghai. This is our homage to the earlier Karz."
