Vote online for Indian Idol 3

User Rating: / 213
Indian reality Shows are catching up fires. Indian Idol was one of the few first ones. And now we have so many reality shows, Big Brother, Cricket Star, Deal ya no deal and soon there will be Soccer Star and Bigest Looser - Jeetaga

But what I dont like about this reality shows are voting system. It is basically focused only for indian viewers. Only Indian viewers can vote using SMS. What about viewers abroard ? And because of this SMS voting, loosers like Sandeep (Indian Idol 2) wins the game. Everybody knows that Karunya was the best but because of this SMS lobby, people from Rajasthan made Sandeep win the Indian Idol 2.

And now who knows what is he doing? But what I know is Karunya got to sing in two big movies like Lage Raho Munna Bhai.

The Bollywood hottie has beaten the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Aishwarya Rai on web search.
As I mentioned that in my previous post "Shilpa Among top 15 queries", India has reason to be proud of Shilpa Shetty once again. The bad press that her 'kiss-episode' with Hollywood's Richard Gere generated has only made the Bollywood hottie a force to reckon with on the international marquee. Shilpa has beaten international celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria, and back home even Aishwarya Rai, to become the uncrowned queen of the cyber universe.
As of today, she's the number one actor on a leading international search engine while she ranks number two in the overall search, second only to American Idol. On the IMDB website, the actress is at number 21, having moved up 23,261 per cent within a week.

Its funny when you see some discussions like this. Today I just stumble upon this wikipedia article where there is a big fight going on between the user who wrote the article and the admin(may be) of wikipedia.
So out of curiosity I found out more details about this "discussion". Apparently when you go to and find out the "Preity Zinta" page, you will see a message saying
"This page is currently protected from editing until disputes have been resolved. Protection is not an endorsement of the current version (protection log). Please discuss changes on the talk page or request unprotection."
On that page if you click on a discussion tab, you will see a "Debate" going on for preity zinta. Few topics that are being discussed
  • "Zinta has worked with the biggest stars in the Indian industry, including four times with Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji." People can count. Why is that information interesting? The articles of the movies should include that. 
  • "They appear to be very much in love, and there is a lot of speculation whether the two will marry soon." Both are just speculation. She is seeing him. Enough information.

The big day has finally arrived and the bride Ash and groom Abhi are contented and happy to tie the knot. The festivities began on 18 April and will culminate with the wedding on 20 April. There was revelry and celebration bollywood style for the sangeet, mehndi and now for the wedding too. Only a select few like Ajay Devgan, Kajol, Sanjay Dutt, Preity Zinta, Suniel Shetty, Sonali Bendre etc from bollywood were invited for this happy but private occasion. The media and crazy fans were kept at bay. However no one could exclude themselves from this joyous occasion and fans from all over the city trooped in to catch a glimpse of Ash, Abhi and other bollywood celebs.

The sangeet was complete bollywood style with both the Rais and Bachchans as well as their friends putting up dance performances. The highlight of the sangeet was a dance performance put up by Ash-Abhi and another dance performance by Amitabh-Jaya. There was plenty of laughter, food and happiness all around the couple.

Jahnvi Kapoor


All the news channels this morning were featuring Jahnavi Kapoor alias Naina Rizvi. No, not Sridevi's daughter, but a "model and actress" (if a 10 second apppearance in the title song of Dus makes you one) who claimed that Abishek had promised to marry her.


The Abhishek-Aishwarya impending wedding almost claimed a victim on Thursday night when a smalltime actress alleged that Abhishek had ditched her after promising to marry her.

Shilpa Shetty was kissed several times by Richard Gere during an AIDS-awareness event.The pair had appeared at a press conference in New Delhi as part of a campaign to preach safe sex to truck drivers in India, the country with the world's largest number of HIV sufferers.However, following the kiss, members of the right-wing Hindu nationalist group Shiv Sena beat burning effigies of Gere with sticks.However, most people preferred to set fire to the glamorous shots of Shetty. People demanded an apology from her and threatened to ban her movies in the state. (Source:WikiPedia)
So what's her excuse on this?
Shilpa: "I know it is a trivial issue. Somebody is trying to do something for your country and you are treating him so badly."
Shilpa Shetty is outraged by the Hindu rightwing Shiv Shena's violent reaction to her striking a "dancing pose" with Hollywood superstar Richard Gere and says they were overreacting to an absolutely trivial issue.
