“Searching for Sugar Man,” the heartwarming chronicle of a forgotten musician’s rediscovery, has won the Academy Award for best documentary.

Directed by the Swedish filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul, “Searching for Sugar Man” tells the story of the Detroit singer-songwriter Rodriguez who disappeared from public after releasing an album in the early ‘70s, but developed an unlikely cult following in South Africa.

Alia Choses Karan Over Deepika

Alia choses Karan over Deepika...

In one of the recent Award functions, both one of the Hot actress in B - Town Deepika Padukone and new comer, Aliya Bhatt happened to meet each other and were involved in a animated conversation. Deepika ended up talking about everything, right from how to maintain looks to what diet to follow to beauty and acting tips to Aaliya. But Aaliya seems to distracted with the conversation. When Karan Johar joined these two ladies, Aaliya chose to hear Karan with more attention that with Deepika.

So, this what means how karan has trained his ‘Student of the year’s heroine to listen only him.
Hope Deepika got this point right and the actress chose to not to involve in giving any free advice, here after.

Reteish Geneilia

All not well with Reteish - Geneilia??? 

All not well with Reteish - Geneilia???

One of the B - Town ka celeb couple who tied knot in 2012, Reteish Deshmukh and Geneilia who seemed to be very much in love in almost all their public appearances, post marriage, behaved a bit different in the recent CCL ka match.

When Reteish was playing a perfect host in the current season of CCL and what introducing his team, he requested Geneilia to the dais, but the actress chose to stay away from all these at first. After Reteish repeatedly requesting front of one and all and taking her name, the actress made her presence on to the dais, joined the team, posed for the photos, smiling, but gave a back shoulder to Rteish. As soon as the photo session was done, the lady just moved out of that place.

These gestures between Genei and Reteish are leaving a sign on every one’s mind that all is not well between the couple. Hope these issues would sort out sooner, and both will be happy like earlier again.

Sonkashi is replaced by Nargis

Sonkashi is replaced by Nargis...

Sonkahsi Sinha is no doubt a star heroine today with n number of offers in her way and soon making a starry T - Town debut opposite Mahesh in T - Town as well. But the actress is really disappointed by one act recently. The Star heroine like Sonakshi being replaced by a new comer, one film old Nargis Fakri… when it comes to the career perspective both these heroines have no comparison with each other ka career. But all this was possible only because of Salman’s Camp Ka decision.

It is official now, this year in Salman’s CCL Mumbai Cricket team; it is not Sonakshi but Nargis who would be representing the team.

Though Sonakshi is a bit okay with she being replaced, but being replaced with a new comer like Nargis is what bothering her more…

After a series of successful films and luck being on her way, this act is really disappointing for Sonakshi

Well when another South Indian Actress who is just one film old in B – Town, Ileana owns a crore value property at a same location, why does not Shraddha.

But the actress dismisses the rumor stating, ‘I have not earned that much to invest in a property that too in a location like Andheri. I only own a small flat in Mumbai and more over a single bedroom in a location like Andheri alone costs more than a crore. I am not that rich enough to invest in a property now. But yes, investing on a property that too in a location like Mumbai is a Shraddha.wise decision’ states the actress.

It has been close to 2 years, Yuvraj Singh, who is equally famous for his Cricket and being a noted name amongst P3’s is back in lime light now.

The star cricketer has seen gelling up with close friends in a party at Mumbai, recently. His ex Kim Sharma was also present at the event but both chose not event meet and greet each other. Instead, Yuvi bonded with Sushmita Sen throughout the party. Before you jump into conclusions, according to the eye witness, both Sush – Yuvi’s interaction and conversation was more or less like a mother talking to the son…

But, one aspect that really raised lot of questions is the bitterness amongst Yuvi and Kim. Despite of Yuvi’s ill health and he recovering from such a chronic disease, Kim chose to stay away from him not even maintaining a courtesy to ask about how he is.
