Emerging from an azure blue swimming pool like a glamorous mermaid is actress Sonam Kapoor on the cover of GQ magazine’s August 2013 issue.
While her red bikini top is hot enough to set the mercury rising, her brown leather skirt actually looks like it could be a mermaid’s lower body (which ends in a swishy tail).

By: Rabbi and Zain Mirza Shefat

Zain Mirza, a host and video jockey party with Amir Khan and Faryal in paradise on the roof, a celebration to welcome you back from your honeymoon for close friends. Some of the celebrities including Frank Sanctuary Hotel owner and Brandon Freid and Million Dollar Listing star Ryan Serhant. This unique event also celebrated the birthday of Frank, drinks and snacks are served, it began to rain, but that just made the evening more intimate.

King Khan told Zain that he is planning his next boxing match for December, which will potentially be held in Dubai. He loves married life, the couple went to Singapore, Malaysia, and UAE for their Honeymoon. The World Champion got hitched in May at the Waldorf Astoria, celebrities including Jay Sean and Russell Peters attended the million dollar royal wedding. The fairy tale reception took place in UK for about 4,000 guests with a 14ft high cake, a Helicopter entrance and exotic cars lined. Over £1 million worth of Sound, Lighting and Visual equipment was used

VJ Zain also had the pleasure of interviewing the beautiful, Faryal Makhdoom, who would like to continue modeling and build her brand, she is planning to launch her make-up line very soon. When asked, you’re from Staten Island and he’s from Bolton, how did you guys meet? She responded, “Amir was in New York doing a photo shoot for Prada and then that same night I had met him at a dinner with mutual friends and he thought I was really pretty.” She started laughing when Zain said “So it was love at first sight just like Bollywood movies.” 21 year old, Faryal thinks a good age to get married is after college, she was able to finish 2 years of Political Science & Journalism at Rutger’s University in NJ due to her wedding festivities. Some have compared Mrs. Khan’s jaw-dropping good looks and style to Kate Middleton, you be the judge, but it’s for sure that England has a new Pakistani Princess in town.

Neil Nitin get is an invitation to Hollywood?

Yes you read the title right! Neil Nitin Mukesh was invited to head to Hollywood IIFA! But who invited the Bollywood actor? Nothing then himself Jean-Claude Van Damme superstar!


Neil Nitin Mukesh at the recent concluded international Film Academy (IIFA) awards met the Hollywood superstar, Jean-Claude Van Damme. When Jean-Claude Van Damme saw Neilwalking the ramp he was impressed enough to go back stage to meet Neil immediately and invite him to act in a film he wants to produce. But this news about the invite and meeting would have remained a secret if Van Damme had not posted his picture with Neil on his website. On his conversation with Van Damme says Neil,
“He met me in Macau and offered me a film. It was a big honor for me that he came up to me and spoke to me at length.”
Ask him about details of the film and Neil says,
“It is in initial stages and nothing is finalized yet.”

Guess this is a project we will have to keep our eye on as Bollywood makes waves into Hollywood which we know is nothing new!

The boys are back – Jay Sean, Juggy D and Rishi Rich!

The moment has finally arrived! In recent years the music industry has long awaited the long awaited joint declaration by Jay Sean, Juggy D and Rishi Rich, formerly known as Rishi Rich Project.

Fans will be pleased that they are working on a brand new collaboration and are set to regain some of his old magic of the good ‘ol days!


Recognized as the “Holy Trinity of the British Asian” music scene, the awesome threesome established and steered an entire movement of Bhangra-R&B fusion.  The boys are now working hard to reignite the music scene and create some more hits for their unique and much-loved genre. Famous for classics such as ‘Dance With You’ (Nachna Tere Naal), ‘Eyes On You’ (Remix), ‘Push It Up’, ‘Stolen’ and ‘Dil Mera’ from the Bollywood film ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum’, the musical maestros have recently been spending time in Rishi’s studio in London.

The 3 Londoners were the first Asian lads as a group to perform at the MOBO’s, on Top of The Pops, on CDUK and at MTV Lick parties in London and Ireland.
Commenting on the exciting venture, Jay Sean says:
“The three of us had a really special thing together, an amazing vibe. We toured the world and had a lot of fun. Life takes you on different journeys sometimes, but all of us always knew we’d do something again eventually. We’re brothers so it would be inevitable!”

Meanwhile, on the solo front, Jay Sean’s fourth album ‘NEON‘ hits stores and iTunes today in the UK!  The album features the hit single ‘Mars‘ featuring Rick Ross, which is currently climbing US radio charts rapidly,’Breakadawn‘ featuring Busta Rhymes and ‘All On Ya Body‘ featuring fast rising star Ace Hood.  Jay Sean was the first Asian artist to go to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in America, and is to date the only British artist in history to have number 1 Billboard songs on both the English and Spanish Charts!


Juggy D has been touring the world over the past few years and has gained an amazing following.  His collaboration with US’s G-Deep “De De Gera” stayed steady on the BBC Asian charts during the summer.  His face adorns advertising hoardings across the metro cities in India and he is a regular sight on TV across the sub-continent. He enjoyed global success with his recent album aptly entitled ‘Punjabi Rockstar‘ and has collaborated with the creme de la creme of the music industry.

Almost 2 decades on and Rishi Rich still mesmerizes audiences with his stupendous productions.Rishi is currently working on completing his latest album, for which he has garnered much support from established international and UK-based artists.

How excited are all of you for the boys come back?  Will they be able to recreate the magic of the past?  Let us know your thoughts below!

“Tum Hi Ho Arjun (you got bad Remix) feat. Rekha Sawney”

The award-winning British Asian singer, composer and producer of “Arjun” has become synonymous with the word “soft”. True to his trademark style fusion of sounds pop / R & B recognized contemporary Bollywood hits, returns with another reworking Arjun incredibly unique. His views on ‘Tum Hi Ho’, the chart topping ballad Bollywood movie ‘Aashiqui 2’, is a modern and fascinating version, which skillfully combines his own lyrics in English as well as Usher’s “You Got It Bad “and supporting vocals from Rekha Hindi Sawhney.



Arjun’s version of ‘Tum Hi Ho‘ features him singing in Hindi for the first time and the video is almost at 1 million views!  In a short span of time, Arjun’s grown in popularity and has solidified his place in the music word.  He has now amassed in excess of an incredible 22 million YouTube views on his channel and picked up the Best Urban Act accolade at last year’s Asian Music Awards.  He is managed by leading UK music management agency Crown Talent (Jessie J, Sugababes, Talvin Singh etc).
To his fans, Arjun says:
 “Thanks for the amazing response to the Tum Hi Ho remix! I think it’s important to push yourself to try new things and as I’ve had a lot of people asking me to sing in Hindi, I thought I’d give it a go! ‘Tum Hi Ho’ was probably the most difficult remix I’ve done because to me the original song is so incredible.”
He adds:
 “It’s one of those songs that is really pure and minimal in terms of production yet full of emotion, meaning that it is very difficult to remix without taking away the beauty of the original song. I decided to experiment and once again push myself to do something different musically, and as my background is in R&B/Pop music, I applied my own formula to the song and decided to incorporate elements of one of my favorite R&B ballads – ‘You Got It Bad’ by Usher. To me the two songs are both equally meaningful and therefore work really well together.”

What do you think of Arjun’s cover?   Do you have it bad for his mix, or are you loyal to the original rendition from the movie?

July 30th: Happy Birthday, Sonu Sood!


Akshay Kumar, Prakash Raj, Sonu Sood
Sonu Sood has some sort of connection with Bangkok! Did you know that this is the third time in four years that he’ll be spending his birthday there, while shooting for a film? This year around, he’s shooting for It’s Entertainment with Akshay Kumar, and the team had a mini-celebration on sets with cake (lots of it).

Akshay Kumar, Sonu Sood, Prakash Raj
It’s a 40-day shoot, and it seems that Akshay and Sonu have actually been bonding quite a bit while there. Apparently, all they can discuss is their fitness and diet regimen, but we’re hoping they kicked back and relaxed at least for Sonu’s birthday.
Here’s hoping the actor’s day has been fantastic so far. Happy birthday, Sonu!

Akshay Kumar Reminds Al Pacino of The Godfather

Al Pacino
This has gotta be a compliment of epic proportions for Akshay Kumar! Apparently, Al Pacino saw the promo of Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai that featured Akshay’s villainous character, Shoaib, and was immediately reminded of his Godfather days!


During an informal discussion, Pacino’s business associate Barry Navidi showed him the trailer of the film, which got Pacino reminiscing about The Godfather.

AL PACINO SAYS:

“My friend Barry Navidi showed me a promo for an Indian film with Akshay Kumar. It brought some fond memories back from my Godfather days.”
Akki, for obvious reasons, was quite touched by the gesture, especially considering that he’s a fan of the actor.

AKSHAY KUMAR SAYS:

“A touch of appreciation is always held dearly in an actor’s arms, even if it’s from the simplest of people like our beloved spot boys. But to have your work spoken of so kindly by the world’s most admired gangster Al Pacino himself – I had goose-bumps thinking about him watching the promo! I was so humbled, not only as an actor but as a fan of his legendary work. I pray he enjoys the final piece as much as he enjoyed the promo!”
Looks like someone’s going to be on cloud 9 for a while!
