Shahid to reprise Shammi, Dev
In what is a double whammy for Shahid, he could be paying a tribute to Dev Anand as well at another awards soiree. “It’s a privilege to pay homage to such greats like Dev saab and Shammiji. They are both made invaluable contributions to Indian cinema, and if I can even recreate a fraction of their magic, I’d consider it an accomplishment,” gushed Shahid.

Buzz is that Shahid Kapoor will play the second male lead in the sequel of 'Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai' while Kareena Kapoor is no more a part of the project.
The only casting certain about Ekta Kapoor's sequel to Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai is Akshay Kumar. While other members of the cast have to be finalized, there is a strong buzz that Kareena Kapoor who has earlier touted to be the female lead of the film will no longer be a part of the project. And Kareena Kapoor's ex-love Shahid Kapoor might just join the cast as the second male lead.
However Kareena's exit has got nothing to do with Shahid Kapoor being considered for the film. A source close to the film reveals, " Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2 is not a solo-hero project but has two male leads like the first part. While Akshay Kumar is confirmed to play the character loosely modeled on the lines of underworld gangster Dawood Ibrahim, there is a second male lead who challenges Akshay in the film". Names like Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were being considered for the part though there's more probability of the former signing the dotted lines.
For the female lead however, Kareena Kapoor's name never surfaced after the initial hoopla. "Also there are two female leads in the film", adds the source but Bebo's chance of being any one of them seems bleak. Director Milan Luthria has also put speculations to rest that he is casting his Dirty Picture heroine Vidya Balan as the second female lead citing the reason that the character doesn't suit her.

Sajid and Wajid have scored the music for the film, teaming up with Prasoon Joshi for the first time.

Shahid to Dance with Shakira Instead of Hrithik?
|Daijiworld Media Network – Entertainment|
Mumbai, Nov 10: Now since Mexican pop-star Shakira has requested to share the stage with an Indian actor for industrialist K P Singh’s birthday bash in Udaipur, the organizer’s first choice was Hrithik Roshan. However, due to his slip disc problem, the actor backed out. It is learnt that the organizers are now planning to approach Shahid Kapoor to step in to Hrithik’s shoes.
But since the offer is being made at the last moment, it is uncertain if Shahid will accept the offer.
A source close to Hrithik said, “Hrithik had agreed to dance alongside Shakira for the event, but his back is giving him too much trouble these days.” It was only during the final stages that Hrithik decided to opt out of the event as he felt that he would not be able to sustain himself on stage for long.
“The contract required him to dance. If it had required him to go onto the stage for a brief while or do a small skit, he would have done it. But they wanted a full fledged performance from him. He ultimately had to say no to them,” said the source.

Why is Shahid Kapoor doing ‘Knight And Day’ remake?
After the brief impersonation of Tom Cruise in Top Gunfor Mausam, Shahid is supposed to lead the official remake of the Hollywood superstar’s last film. We wonder if it’s really that big a deal!
- While Hollywood star Tom and Shahid are on the same plane as far their height goes, our Bollywood hero is far from being an action man- an image associated with Tom Cruise.
- Knight And Day wasn’t really a blockbuster like Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible series and neither was it his finest work for us to jump on it
- And last, but the most important reason is this: why would the Indian audience want to watch a very recent release (2010) that was in any case dubbed in several local languages.
So do you get the point we are trying to make? Moreover, it seems Bollywood is running low on originality. After regional remakes and sequels we now have to deal with official remakes!

Mausam earns Rs 22 crore over weekend
and how after 10 years of separation they reunite and live happily after.
Made at a budget of Rs 35 crore, Mausam was released across 1,900 screens and earned Rs 22 crore over three days - Friday, Saturday and Sunday. People liked Shahid's performance and the story, but they found the film lengthy.
"The weekend has been good. We had 90 percent occupancy although it dropped on Monday. People are liking the content but the duration of the film is very long which acts as a deterrent," Puneet Sahay, senior manager for programming and operations at Spice Cinemas told IANS.
Some film critics have praised it, others have found the film an average one. Despite the average reviews, the film has got a decent response, says Munish Sharma of Satyam Cinemas.
"Although Mausam hasn't got a bumper start, the response to the film has been decent. The average reviews don't seem to have affected it as the response at the box-office has been good. Both Shahid and Sonam's acting is being appreciated," said Sharma.
Yogesh Raizada, corporate head (Cinemas) of Wave Cinemas, feels that the film lacks flow. "The film goes criss-cross. It lacks flow. Moreover its 2.45 hour duration makes it a tough watch although both Shahid and Sonam have played their parts nicely. The film has received a decent response in the NCR as both the actors have a good fan following, it failed to impress people in Uttar Pradesh," said Raizada.

Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan snub Shahid Kapoor
On September 22, Mumbai Mirror told you how Shahid Kapoor, who along with his father Pankaj Kapur chalked out the guestlist for the Mausam premiere held on Thursday night, had invited his ex-girlfriends Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan.
The actor however, had decided to give Kareena Kapoor the royal snub. Looks like the actor got paid back in his own coins, albeit by the two ladies he had invited.
Despite the absence of his two ex-flames, Shahid's much-awaited movie of the year did manage to draw most tinsel townies out of their homes. Genelia D'Souza, Bipasha Basu, Sonakshi Sinha, Amisha Patel, Kangna Ranaut, Tabu, his Dil Bole Hadippa costar Rani Mukerji, Aayesha Takia and even Amrita Rao (who happens to be Shahid's ex-love as well) added some razzle dazzle to the show held at iMax Wadala.
A source informed Mumbai Mirror, "Vidya Balan was shooting for Dirty picture at a studio in Goregaon on Thursday evening. Though her co-star Tusshar Kapoor did take a break for a couple of hours to attend the birthday party of his Hum Tum Shabana producer Sunil Chainani, Vidya decided not to follow his example. She continued shooting for the film. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra chose to perform with SRK at an awards function in Delhi and skip Shahid's movie premiere."
And it was not just his ex-flames who gave the premiere a miss. Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan, two actors Shahid has been bonding with really well of late, were conspicuous by their absence.
"It was shocking to see that neither Ranbir nor Imran turned up for the Mausam premiere. Everybody was talking about their absence in hushed whispers at the event," informed a source. Imran's wife Avantikaa however, did make an appearance with director Ayaan Mukerji.
Though some speculate that Ranbir might have given the premiere a miss because of Sonam Kapoor, the leading lady of the film, a friend of the actor defended him saying, "Shahid knew Ranbir wouldn't make it for the premiere. Ranbir was busy shooting in Chandivli."
A source revealed, "People at the event were speculating whether Imran missed the show because Mausam's first day collections are higher than Mere Brother Ki Dulhan." Distributor Aditya Choksi confirmed, "The collections of Mausam are 15 per cent higher than those registered by Mere Brother Ki Dulhan on day one."
