Whistle Stop: Former Indian cricketer
Ajay Jadeja (in the picture) will be seen in a guest appearance in the upcoming film Kai Po Che, directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Based on Chetan Bhagat's bestselling book The 3 Mistakes of My Life, where cricket has a substantial role to play, the film will have Jadeja appearing as himself as a cricket commentator. Jadeja, a flamboyant cricketer in his heyday made his foray into films with the 2003 film Khel, co-starring Sunny Deol and Suniel Shetty, after he was banned from cricket for allegations of match fixing. Although he enjoyed immense popularity among women as a cricketer, his films failed to impress. We hope his special appearance in Kai Po Che isn't met with a similar response.
Cars — swashbuckling and spectacular — have been a significant part of James Bond's universe. As the world celebrates 50 years of the Bond legacy in movies, with the release of the latest Bond film Skyfall, BBC Entertainment's popular automobile show Top Gear focuses on Bond's cars over the past 50 years. The episode, which will be aired today, will see its charismatic host Richard Hammond talk, explore and go behind the scenes of some of the most legendary cars of James Bond movies, like the Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 and the Lotus Esprit submarine car.
Mink in the House
It has been a month since Bigg Boss went on air, and a wild card entry was waiting to happen. The wait is now over, as Mink Brar gets ready to enter the house. The Germany-born Indian actor Mink, who made her Bollywood debut in Dev Anand's Pyar Ka Tarana (2003), will enter the Bigg Boss house over the weekend. Mink did blink-and-miss roles in films such as Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain, Saat Rang Ke Sapne, Oops! and Ajnabee and also started a production house with her brother. However, she has been missing in action for a while. Mink agreed to be part of the house, "because this time the crowd is decent, in control and cool." Navjot Singh Sidhu, Vrajesh Hirjee and Sampat Pal are her favourite contestants in the house.
