Yash Raj Films sink?

Written by on December 13th, 2007

With every rise can just as easily arrive a tumultuous fall. Such is the case for Yash Raj Films this year, as they have literally gone sliding downhill after some mediocre films, horrible promotion and dare I say—overconfidence.

Why We Love Aaja Nachle

Written by on December 11th, 2007

Who’s Hot Who’s Not (2nd November – 10th November)

Written by on November 11th, 2007

Amisha Patel was seen at the much anticipated Saawariya premiere wearing this sheer pink sari. Soft pink is a nice colour on her, although I don’t particularly like the sari in general. The blouse is extremely shiny and revealing. I know that many actresses have been wearing these miniscule sari blouses lately, but Amisha seems […]

Who’s Hot Who’s Not (24th September – 20th October)

Written by on October 24th, 2007

Sadly, Neha Dhupia wore this hideous outfit to MTV’s Style Awards. For starters, the top is way too tight for her which makes the blouse look so stretched as if the buttons are going to pop off any minute. The belt is simply ugly and the rose looks so random hanging off her breast. Not […]
