Abhay news

Yes we have a google alert set on Abhay.
Yes we are unapologetic about it :D

We are breathing a huge sigh of relief that his move to the NYC is temporary, where he has been attending the DIlli-6 premier. He continues to make movies, and this one sounds like it'll be fun .: the movie features Dharam, Sharmila, and Bobby with Soha playing Sharmila's youth and Abhay playing Dharam's- what brilliant casting- everyone except Bobby- ah well.

OMG! This is the film from dream world!! Dharam+Sharmila together and their look-alike descendants to play their younger roles!!! This can only happen in "family-oriented" Bollywood. :-D Please, please, please, Sangeeth Sivan make a nice movie with such a brilliant cast...

Wow this sounds interesting. Soha and Abhay makes perfect couple. And I am loving new improved Dharam (Metro and Johnny Gaddar). Sharmila is always adorable. Love to see all together.

Bollyviewer & Darshit: The worst part of this is the wait until the movie gets made! ugh- sometimes knowledge hurts.. :D

Abhay Alert! Abhay Alert! Don't worry, no judgment here--I am totally in the fangirl corner. :-) That film does sound like fun.

Ajanbi: yes, so embarassing :P The idea of the movie sounds great- but I honestly dont want to see any more of Bobby :D

Can totally understand you being on Abhay alert. Love your new look.

As for Bobby, I do like him. I thought he was really cute and fun in 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'. I think he needs a good director. Me?? :-)

Banno: Thank you! You are right about Bobby and JBJ- I did remember it briefly when righting those words, and felt a tiny bit guilty :D Maybe when you direct Bobby, you could also use Alyy? He is so underutilized as well :)

Abhay makes me feel old...since I could BE his mother, I don't feel comfortable being fangirly :) (maybe that's why I mostly stick to the older films)...but he is just darling and this looks like oodles of fun. Hope it does get made!

And agree with Banno re: Bobby. I think he's just never gotten the right parts/directors/whatever. Go, Banno, direct him in something!

Memsaab: Really??? you musnt! IMDB says the dude is 41, so I'm sure ur OK there :D He has a new movie coming out called "Ek" which sounds like rehashed "Bicchu"- yeah someone needs to get him a role alright :)

I enjoyed Abhay and Soha in Ahista Ahista. This cast sounds like fun! As others have noted, Bobby's not bad at all for what he's been given to work with, I've liked some of his performances (*not* the one in JBJ, which to me is in the same bucket as Tashan, Love Story, Drona -- maybe I'm just missing it, oh well)!

Shweta Mehrotra Gahlawat said...

TBF! really???? (my jaw hung open in astonishment, so I promptly closed it before I scared ppl) you need to tell me what performances u like of Bobby, so I can behave myself and stop mocking him. I liked him in JBJ (im not a big fan of the movie, alas) cos he seemed to FIT that role.

theBollywoodFan said...

The ones I can think of right away are Apne, Heroes, Nane Jaisalmer, Naqaab, Tango Charlie. As is the case with you and JBJ, I'm not saying all these movies are good, but I do appreciate his work in them. :)

TBF: To each his own my friend :D I definitely enjoy our diff POVs :D
