Bal Thackeray Says, Send Back Veena Malik To Pakistan

Mrityunjay Singh [ Updated 20 Dec 2011, 08:15:04 ]

Mumbai, Dec 20: Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray today lashed out at Pakistani actor Veena Malik and all other artistes, saying all of them should be packed off to their country. 

In an editorial in his party's organ Saamna, Bal Thackeray writes: "Veena Malik is a blot on our country's culture. Who is Veena Malik? Why is so much ruckus being raised about her?

"She goes missing for some days and it appears to be a publicity stunt. ..Sometimes she does obscene acts in Bigg Boss and sometimes she gets herself photographed in the nude for magazines.

"Veena is not such a big actress from Pakistan that we should go on praising her.

"I think she has a temporary visa and she is staying here since months. It seems she has obtained Indian citizenship. This amounts to stabbing oneself in the back.

"There is a trend in Bollywood to hire Pakistani artistes. Pakistani actors come to India and do not want to leave. People from Pakistan come to India to watch cricket matches and suddenly vanish. It's difficult to say whether they work for terror outfits or not.

"We are so careless that we are welcoming our enemies too..

"Adnan Sami also seems uninterested in going back to his home country. Pakistani comic artistes come here in the name of improving ties and go back earning money.

"On the other side, Pakistani government doesn't even give visas to our artistes. There is a virtual ban on entry of Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle in Pakistan.

"There is also a ban on our film songs there, but we bring in useless Pakistani artistes here and feed them. ..

"Dolly Bindra says, Veena Malik has ISI connections. If that is so, the person who gave her visa should be jailed.

"Such persons should be in the same cells with Afzal Guru and Kasab.

"We should clean up our country and send Veena to hell", signs off the Shiv Sena supremo.

Salman Khan unveils campaign with History channel

Crafted by McCann Erickson, the campaign will go on-air from next week; watch the 3 TVCs here
Neha Saraiya | New Delhi | September 30, 2011
A+E Networks | TV18, a joint venture between A+E Networks and TV 18, has launched three TVCs for their soon-to-be-launched factual entertainment channel ‘History’ in India. The brand has unveiled the new campaign online first, to be followed by TV. The ad features Bollywood actor Salman Khan challenging people’s perception of ‘achievement’ and ‘newness’.
The idea for the campaign, concept-alised by McCann Erickson, came from the insight that history, an otherwise mundane topic, needed to be put in the most interesting and engrossing manner. Thus, the campaign plays with the copy reading ‘Watch History being made’,  ‘Kuch Naya Dekho’ and ‘History Bante Dekho’.
Speaking about the launch campaign strategy, Sangeetha Aiyer, general manager, marketing, AETN-18, said, “The factual entertainment segment as a whole is witnessing a growth of 30 per cent year-on-year basis. But we don’t want to cannibalise the market with any other player including Discovery and National Geographic. Thus, we have entered the market with a different approach, like we will be launching in six different languages at the same time and we have also picked Salman Khan as our ambassador as he reaches out to different target segments. We wanted to shake up the market, as history has a new contemporary side to it being made everyday by people.”
The TVC has been released in three versions — ‘Mountains’, ‘Swamp’ and ‘Samurai’ — all shot in southern France. Directed by Prashant Issar of Tubelight Films, the TVCs urge people to push the envelope, go beyond the regular, and watch something new.
Angshumani Khanna, Creative Director, McCann Erickson, said, “The idea was to communicate ‘kuch naya dekho’. Basically we believed that the channel has a fantastic content line-up.”
The agency has planned a 360-degree marketing campaign spanning outdoor in metros, activation in key shows, PR and Radio, with key emphasis on innovation on all platforms.
The channel that will go on air from October 9 will be supported by marketing initiatives worth Rs. 15-18 crore across all platforms.

Filmfare - Priyanka Chopra : Girls just wanna have fun,. I’m a big fan of Dolly Bindra too

Filmfare - Priyanka Chopra : Girls just wanna have fun

In matters of the heart and craft Priyanka Chopra chooses the tricky trail. Filmfare chats up B-town’s girl on the go
PC_1An actor recently remarked, ‘Priyanka Chopra is the female Shah Rukh Khan!’ And knowing PC’s admiration for the King Khan she is probably jumping through hoops at this one. The girl has energy and a distinct brand of joie de vivre that’s unwavering. Come rumours of heartbreak or her father's ill-health, nothing can numb her energy. She survives heartbreak and box office thuds with equanimity. We at Filmfare were witness to her gusto as she laughed with Imran Khan to court the camera for our photoshoot. She may have given away her beauty pageant crown a decade ago, but this B-town princess is here to reign…
You’ve been experimental in your choice of roles in films that didn't do well at the box-office. How difficult was it to do that in a male-dominated industry?
It is a male-dominated industry but I’ve been fortunate to get plum roles. Fashion, for example, completely rested on my shoulders. I’ve reached a point where directors feel I’m capable of playing heavy duty roles. Whether Saat Khoon Maaf did well or not, at least Vishal Bhardwaj felt I was competent to do it. No One Killed Jessica was based on women and it did so well. Times are changing for sure.
You play an autistic in Barfee. That must be tough…
Barfee is one of my toughest roles. I play an autistic character. There’s a very thin line between being autistic and mentally challenged.
Imran_Priyanka_1Your look in Kunal Kohli’s untitled film has created a buzz…
I’m doing a romantic comedy after a while. So being in this light space is refreshing. It’s too early to talk about the look but you know me na, I can’t do anything normal. (Laughs)
You’re working with Shahid Kapoor in Barfee again after Kaminey.
Shahid is a great co-actor and a fantastic actor. He’s also someone I know really well. Amidst jokes and laughter we don’t realise how time passes.

How easy or difficult is it being friends with your ex?
It’s a individual thing.
Reportedly, you had problems with your co-actress Illeana D’Cruz in Barfee.
I’ve never even met her.

Reportedly, Katrina Kaif was signed on for Illeana’s role but later she walked out. Were there some issues between you two?
I don’t have any trouble with Katrina. I don’t know what happened and why she walked out.
You had signed three films opposite Saif Ali Khan but none have seen the light of day…
Yes, but somehow they didn’t work out.

Does it have something to do with Kareena’s proximity with Saif…
I don’t think Kareena would be so petty or small-minded. The films didn’t work out due to professional reasons.
Imran_PC_2If you were a film journalist, which celeb would you follow and what secrets would you unravel?
The greatest challenge for me would be to get a quote from Priyanka Chopra about what’s happening in her personal life as she never talks about it.
If you were to interview Shahid, what would you ask him?
Just before a shot he becomes very quiet and goes into a zone for like four minutes. I always wonder what he’s thinking about then.
If you woke up as Salman Khan one morning…
Oh I love Salman! I love the way he lives his life on his own terms. Just being Salman Khan would be enough. The only thing I’d do is take out his Harley Davidson and go riding around Bandstand.
If you were to pick 10 men who’d compete in Priyanka Ka Swayamvar, who would they be?
It’s difficult to choose 10 men but I can give you an idea of what he should be like. He should be confident and successful. A man’s confident only when he’s successful. (Laughs) I have a really long list but there’s no harm in wishing.
Which 10 people would you like to watch in the Bigg Boss house?
I’d like to watch Ashu sir (Ashutosh Gowariker) and Sajid Khan, Rakhi Sawant and Mika Singh. Also Rekha. There’s a mystery about her. I’d like to know what she does on a regular day. I’m a big fan of Dolly Bindra too. My ears would turn red whenever she’d talk. I love Daler Mehendi. And in the midst of all this I’d love to see Shashi Tharoor, Kamal R Khan incessantly, Jitesh Pillai and Karan Johar.

If you were stuck in a lift with Kareena what would you do?
Whenever we meet we discuss vacations. I’m jealous of her holidays because I never take any.
If you could go back to an era, which would it be?
The ’60s. I’d like to be like Mumtaz. Asha Parekh mam was telling me how there would be so much politics but still they spoke so kindly of each other. They’d behave with adab (respect), tehzeeb (etiquette) and tameez (manners). But actually in their heads they’d be thinking something else. That was the era of the stars. Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna… they were larger than life.
