Alia Bhatt has changed her role model from Kareena Kapooor Khan to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. When she was asked early on in her career about her role model, Alia would always name Bebo. But recently when she was asked the same question, she replied saying she considered Ash as a her role model. A insider says, "There's a reason for Alia's volte face. When Kareena was asked what she thought of Alia, she replied with a non committal 'She's okay.' That didn't go down well with Alia. She expected the love to be reciprocated. so she changed her answer."Or maybe her changed stance has something to do with it the fact that she has recieved some Bachchan love. we hear that Big B send her a bonquet of flowers after watching her performance in Highway and sent her a note praising her.
An unlikely dosti
Sonakshi Sinha and Kangana Ranaut have been bonding. an industry khabru reveals. "When Kangana had a trial for Queen last week people were suprised to see Sona there. not many people know that she was there as a personal guest of the Queen. What do they have in common? Nothing really. They haven't even worked together in a film. Maybe that is why they are friends." Actually there is one connection, if you really want to see it. Kangu was part of Once Upon a Time and Sona acted in the sequel.
Bye, Bye Kalki?
We wonder what director Anurag kashyup means by his latest status on a social networking website. He wrote: "Moving on...From the past, from the present and moving on from what could have been the future...mera ho gaya."
Ranveer Singh was spotted in Goa to his friend Manav and Kashmira's wedding along with music director Sulam Merchant. The actor was seen in good spirits living it up and dancing merrily to A Mein toh ainvayi loot gaya.

The Dippy effect?
At an event, we caught Ranveer Singh snapping pictures of Shah Rukh Khan along with other photographers. Apparently Ranveer has been a long-term fan of SRK and this was his way of trying to get up close and upfront with the star. Now now Ranveer, we know your good friend Deepika Padukone is also close to Shah Rukh. Maybe that's why.
After SRK and AK it's RK
Yo Yo Honey Singh's appears to be trying to set a record of sorts. He will soon be seen dancing with Ranbir Kapoor for the thriller Roy. Producer Bhushan Kumar wants to shoot a special song for the film with Ranbir Kapoor. After Party Night with Akshay Kumar and Lungi Dance with SRK, this will be his third big screen outing.
Ashmit's charity act
Salman Khan's Jai Ho, in which he also actred seem to have changed Ashmit Patel. He is willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Says a source, "Ashmit is shooting in Coorg, which has many elephant herds. One such herd caused a little disruption near the shoot one day. In the melee one of the local family's hut was completely destroyed. when Ashmit heard of this, he offered to pay for the rebuilding their home." Isn't that nice? Salman would be proud.
Dilip Deo who has edited films like Wanted and Khelein Hum Jee is turns director with a thriller. The film that will go on floors next year and will star Emraan Hashmi in the lead.
Abbas-Mustan will be directing Saif Ali Khan in one of their next, a thriller. Saif will star in the film along with Amitabh Bachchan. This is the first time they will be sharing screen space. In the past, Big B has actred with his mom Sharmila Tagore in many films.

STUFF FROM THE INTERNET

We Support Deepika Padukone because she is my SANSKAARI Co-actor in my next film 'AASHIRWAD EXPRESS'
Arshad Warsi and the makers of The Legend of Michael Mishra are leaving no stone unturned to get the perfect look for the actor who plays the title role. They had a very specific look of Arshad's character, which needed him to wear a wig. Arshad has never worn a wig in a film before, so it was important that he be convinced about it. So producer Kishor Arora ordered 12 custom-made wigs from
Germany, which cost them close to 5 lacs INR. When the wigs arrived all trio (actor, diretor Manish Jha and producer) did look test to close in on the right one.The film team is believed to be sticklers for perfection and have been taking extra care to ensure Arshad's look from the film set is not revealed. They've even banned the use of cell phones, iPads by the crew on set. Well, the wait better be worth it.
