    Khoobsurat- Royal pain in the neck :MOVIE REVIEW

    Khubsoorat
    Director: Shashanka Ghosh
    Actors: Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan
    Rating: *1/2

    It’s one thing for a smart, carefree, sassy kind of girl to enter an uptight sort of household to loosen things up and have fun along the way. That was Rekha in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Khubsoorat. It’s quite another thing altogether when that same chilled out character comes across as a certified imbecile (Sonam Kapoor), perpetually prone to behave like an over-friendly dement, because her Punjabi mom, who she calls by the first name Manju (Kirron Kher), behaves even more demented.

    This film is as much a remake of the gentle, warm Khubsoorat (1980) as Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan was a nod to Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s subtly charming Gol Maal (1979). The film is produced by Disney. Most people who have even seen its trailers will liken it more to the American hit, girly, teen franchise The Princess Diaries (2001).
    Sonam plays a physiotherapist in the movie. She gets appointed to treat the jobless king of a mythical empire in the desert. Aamir Raza Husain plays this sombre king. Those who’ve grown up savouring the vibrant theatre scene in Delhi will know Hussain as the master director of stellar productions like The Fifty Day War (2000) and The Legend Of Ram (2004). It’s great to see him on the big screen. He looks and behaves every bit a blue-blooded royal, although talking in a decidedly UP accent, which is only mildly strange for an ‘emperor’ from contemporary Rajasthan.

    Stranger by far is the Rajput king’s son. Together with the father and the bored mom (Ratna Pathak Shah), this thoroughly serious looking, busy as hell prince dude (Fawad Khan) lives in a massive palace that, by all accounts, appears to be located quite far away from urban civilisation. I suspect he works in the hospitality business, though it’s very hard to tell. Throughout the film and all through his day, all you can see him do is strut around in an astounding range of super-formal designer suits and bandhgalas, walking around all alone, inside his own house, between the drawing room, study or perhaps the restroom. No, seriously, who are these people?

    I am delighted with the feedback on my bikini shot: Sonam Kapoor

    Sonam Kapoor, who is sporting a bikini onscreen for the first time, is flattered by the reactions of her fans.

    "I’m very delighted with the feedback I’ve been getting  from the time the pictures came out. It’s a simple shot that has become a huge talking point. I am happy that fans have loved it," says the actor, who had once vowed never to wear a two piece on the big screen.

    "Sonam has experimented a lot with her clothes, but she was keen to know how her fans would react to her bikini look. As soon as the promo was released, many fans shared it on their social networking accounts," says a source close to the actor.

    Interestingly, around two years ago, the actor had said that she would never wear a bikini as she does not have a perfect body to carry it off. "I will never wear a bikini on screen, because I am not confident enough. I know that I will not look good. I don’t have the best body," Sonam told PTI in 2012. - See more at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/entertainment/bollywood/my-bikini-shot-has-become-a-talking-point-sonam-kapoor/article1-1184978.aspx#sthash.jYcAabts.dpuf

    Sonam Kapoor Hot scendal with Shahid Kapoor

    There is no kissing scene in Mausam."Sonam Kapoor had said that. But Mumbai Mirror has just found out, that there is indeed a passionate lip-lock between the actress and her co-star Shahid Kapoor in the said film.

    And the man who made this kiss possible was none other than Shahid's father, the director of the film Mr Pankaj Kapur. Looks like the actress who had once denied the existence of any such embrace in the project, couldn't refuse the director's command.

    Initially when Pankaj Kapur had informed Sonam about the kiss, she had put her foot down. Her refusal had sparked off some real drama on the sets of the film. Kapur had even called up her father Anil Kapoor in desperation. But the actress refused to budge even then. She had even told sections of the media that there was no kissing scene in the film.

    That however, is a thing of the past. Much like her days of not being too friendly with her co-star Shahid. With the thaw in their relationship, even the kissing scene seems to have worked itself out. In fact, when contacted Sonam told Mumbai Mirror that she and Shahid do have a kiss in Mausam. When asked about her initial refusal regarding the scene, she said, "Says who?" So was the scene diluted? "No. Jitna hona chahiye tha, utna hi rakha gaya," said Sonam.

    Sonam surely seems to have had a change of heart.Mausam producer Sheeta Talwar said, "Sonam is a fantastic actress. She had a very comfortable equation with Pankaj and Shahid. If there were any aspersions whatsoever, they were cast aside during the course of the shoot."
