Bolly Waxing and Washing
It's been a week of Bolly Waxing ‘n Washing for us – what do we mean ?
Well we just hope it’ll all come out in the wash! Last week saw the release of Yamla Pagla Deewana and it’s a double dhamaka for the Deols. Their first family trio starrer – Apne – was a hit and now YPD is bringing in the dollars for the Deols as the film is a world wide hit. Director Samir Karnik told us all about working with the magical trio and how wonderful Dharam Ji is. He also revealed he must have been a Punjabi in a previous life as he loves all things to do with the state. He even took Salman Khan to the Golden Temple in his last movie Heroes.
We also chatted to the girl who is taking Bollywood by storm, the effervescent Sonakshi Sinha. Success has not gone to her head despite wining awards for Best Newcomer at both the Star Screen Awards and at last week's Zee Cine Awards in Singapore. The Filmfare Awards take place next month so will she be able to get the hat trick? She told us it's brilliant to be acknowledged and she'll be in Race 2 and there's a sequel to Dabaang – Hurrah! Do listen to our podcast and a massive thanks to Sonakshi for tweeting about us!
Waxing is a painful chore as many people know but not for our friend Hrithik Roshan who arrived in London on Thursday to unveil his statue at Madam Tussauds. Every inch the humble superstar, Hrithik was amazed at the result. The waxwork cost £150,000 and is based on his look – six pack and all - from Dhoom 2. Hats off to Hrithik who was superb in Guzarish – can't wait for Zindagi Na Mile Dobara.
Washing is a chore for Aamir Khan or so jokes his wife, the lovely Kiran Rao. We cheekily asked them about why she made a film about Dhobis if that's the case. Their reply? Well you'll have to listen to Saturday’s show for the full interview. Have to say they make a wonderful couple and their hilarious banter is on par with us. We also spoke to Prateik Babbar – he plays the underclass Dhobi in Dhobi Ghat – and mark our words he is going to be huge!. The late great Smita Patil’s son has been a friend of the show for a couple of years now and if you listen on Sunday you'll hear him talk about growing up with his grandparents and what fame really means to him.
Love Bollywood, every Saturday and Sunday from 9am.
