Akshay Kumar has rejected the best popular actor award that he recived at the Nokia 15th Annual Star Screen Awards. However, Akshay was in a happy mood when he came with his wife to attend the award function. But later on when he was presented the Best Popular Actor award he refused to accept it saying that Aamir Khan had done much better than him in Ghajini and deserved it. Akshay said that he had watched Ghajini recently and he felt that Aamir Khan had done a lot better than him or any other Bollywood actor this year. He said that he believes that Aamir Khan should have won the award irrespective of the fact that he attends award functions or not.

Akshay Kumar said

It is Aamir Khan who deserves this award. I will request Aamir to accept this award instead of me

However, many people also think that the best actor award won by Hrithik Roshan although Aamir Khan and Akshay were nominated might have hurt him. But everybody appreciated this show of appreciation by Akshay Kumar. Akshay’s gesture was a bit weird but everybody believed that Aamir had done far better than anybody else and deserved to win the best actor award for Ghajini without any doubt.

Hrithik with Aishwarya Rai in upcoming Bhansali film

January 5, 2009 by  
Filed under Featured, News

Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has already given two big Bollywood hits Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar. They are regarded as a hot couple even now but both of them have become selective in their movie roles after their marriage with Suzzane Khan and Abhishek Bachchan respectively. Aishwarya’s mother also confessed that she used to like Hrithik’s attitude and looks before her marriage with Abhishek Bachchan. After her marriage too, she was supposed to have been told by her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan that she would not kiss anybody in the big screen like she locked her lips with Hrithik in Dhoom 2. But this hot pair has been brought together once again by ace director of Bollywood Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has decided to cast them in his forthcoming movie. Sanjay has worked with Aishwarya Rai in two of his biggest hits Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas but this would be his first movie with Hrithik Roshan. The movie would be in English for the international market and Bhansali would expect to re-establish himself at the top after his last movie Saawariya was a huge disaster.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali said

I am

directing another film with Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And, I am very excited about this project and so is my team. This is important to make films for our market but it’s the time when our cinema should reach the remotest corner of the world. Moreover, language is no more a barrier today. This is not the first time that I am making a film in English. My ‘Black’ was in English too

Good luck Sanjay and hope this hot pair creates a dhoom again with their great chemistry.

Hrithik Roshan perform item song Dhol Baaje in Luck By Chance. Farhan Akhtar is a good friend of Hrithik and has directed him in Lakshya. It is heard that Aamir Khan also does a special appearance in this Farhan Akhtar home production Luck By Chance. Farhan is a very good director and actor and now it seems that he is trying to make Luck by Chance another surprise hit after the success of Rock On. Great going Farhan and Hrithik also looks great in the song.
