Frieda Pinto Set to Have Two International Releases in 2010

The dusky beauty from India, Frieda Pinto, who shot to international stardom with last years‘ multiple Oscar winning film ‘The Slum Dog Millionaire’, is embarking on her international career in a big way. She has reportedly finished shooting for two hugely hyped Hollywood films both of which are set to release in September this year.

One is titled ‘Miral’, a love story set in Israel which finished shooting on location in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Frieda plays the title role of Miral, a girl brought up in an orphanage in Jerusalem in a story spanning over many decades. Written by Rula Jebreal who authored the book with the same name, the film is directed by Oscar nominated writer director Julian Schnabel.

Other film of Frieda that’s already in post production stage is the celebrated filmmaker Woody Allen’s next ‘You will meet a tall dark stranger’ which circles around a family, their love stories and their efforts to try to figure out their troubles. She is starring in this romance cum family drama along with an array of huge international names like Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins, Naomi watts, Josh Brolin, Antonio Banderas etc. Woody Allen recently stated that there is lots of substance in Indian actors and called it worthy working along with them. Coming from such an esteemed source that’s high price for one film old Frieda.

Coming up next she will start shooting in April for a Greek mythology based film ‘War of The Gods’ directed by Tarsem Singh. She is also rumored to be cast in “American Empire’ directed by Andy Armstrong.

Mumbaikars Also Should Work Hard - Asha Bhosale

It seems that after the SRK and Shiv Sena stand off, Bollywood is beginning to find the courage to voice their true opinion regarding the issue of being a Marathi and a Mumbaikar.

‘Mumbai belongs to all’ was the emphatic comment made by the legendary singer and Maharashtra born Asha Bhosale, when asked about the contribution made by migrants coming to Mumbai. The words became all the more significant because the MNS chief Raj Thackeray was sharing the stage with her.

The venue was an event ‘Swar-Asha’ organized in Pune on Sunday by channel Mi Marathi’. Raj Thackeray made a speech before Asha in which he made the claim that even though the songs sung by Asha are accepted by people all around India as their own, it all happened because she is a Marathi.

Later in the show Asha was interviewed by television anchor Sudhir Gadgil, who asked her to comment on the Mumbaikar versus migrant issue. That’s when the singer made the comment and emphasized that nobody is justified to snatch jobs from people who work in Mumbai from morning to evening and instead of such acts, Maharashtrian people should also be ready to work hard. As a singer she worked hard, and that’s why nobody could deny the success and recognition that was due to her, she added.

Raj Thackeray chose not to respond to Ashaji’s words. MNS spokesperson Shirish Parkar also refused to comment when questioned about it. Asha Bhosale is reported to be close to both Raj and his uncle Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray. In such a case, what reaction her words bring about is yet to seen.

Recently, industrialist Mukesh Ambani and cricketing legend Tendulkar faced the wrath of Shiv Sena and MNS for making similar statements.

Do politicians have a sense of humour ?

This is something that happened quite sometime ago, but worth reading

It is about an enterprising prankster, who wrote to American Senators asking them for their favourite joke. The responses are amusing, illuminating and, in some cases, really rather charming.

Posing as a 10 year old boy doing a "government project" at school, the prankster sent a scrawled note to 100 American Senators. Right off the bat, he discovered that getting a response from a top elected official is not an easy task, even for a ten-year-old boy. Weeks passed, with no response.

The reason for the delay, apparently was due to the fact that all 100 joke letters were screened for traces of chemical residue as per regulations. Federal marshals wearing protective suits held the prank messages up to ultraviolet lights, with long tweezers. Trained dogs sniffed hungrily over the letters, their keen noses able to detect anything except the scent of a practical joke.

Finally, the letters went through, and it pestered the nation's Senators until, finally, the responses started coming in. Senators actually took time from their busy schedules to write a joke, and send it to a lying ten-year-old kid. The results are sure to both amuse and amaze you. You can discover which of the Senators are funny and which are not, you will be moved to such a degree that you might even be tempted to vote [if they are participating during the next election ]

There are letters from such luminaries as John McCain and John Kerry. The jokes they chose reveal much about their personalities. And, against all odds, some of them manage to be quite funny too.

The senators who fell for it are listed at The Senator Prank
