Hrithik Roshan cracks overseas market 

Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan is riding high on the success of his latest release “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”. His upcoming “Krrish 2″ is fetching skyrocketing prices for its music and satellite rights much ahead of its shooting – and is expected to be high on the overseas market too.A source close to the actor revealed that the music rights have been sold for Rs.6 crore and the satellite rights given out for Rs.38 crore. The price has surpassed superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming superhero flick “RA.One” which has been sold at a reported Rs.35 crore.The bidding for the movie is expected to be high on overseas rights too, and Hrithik is elated.“The overseas market is a hard one to crack because there’s no guarantee that a film that works in India will do well there. So, it’s heartening that five of my films (‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, ‘Dhoom 2′ ‘Jodhaa Akbar’, ‘Kites’ and ‘Zindagi…’) have conquered both markets. The breakthrough came with ‘Dhoom 2′,” Hrithik said in a press statement.“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” grossed Rs.22 crore from the overseas market within 10 days of its release, and Hrithik feels his popularity has also grown thanks to his statue in Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in London.“The statue at Madame Tussaud’s also got me a lot of attention and was symbolic of a decade-long journey that should inspire my sons to march ahead despite the hurdles,” added the actor, who unveiled his wax statue in London earlier this year.However, the 37-year-old refuses to agree he is in competition with Bollywood’s Khans – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir.“I wouldn’t want to lump Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman together as the ‘Khans’ because they are distinct individuals who have seen maximum failures, and yet, risen to great heights.“We don’t see ourselves as superheroes and walk around with crowns on our heads. We’re just actors doing what we know best. The advantage is that being the last link in the chain, we get all the eyeballs and praise,” he added.Hrithik is currently shooting for the remake of “Agneepath”, and he would start work on “Krrish 2″ in November this year.

I will never give up acting for anyone, anything: Vidya Balan

 Marriage may or may not fit in the next five years, but Vidya is not going to give up acting for anyone or anything and she also thinks that life has been good ever since she has turned 30.She says, “Acting is a part of who I am. I don’t think I will ever give it up. But having said that, if it does come naturally to me and I do feel like taking it slow at some point of time, then maybe I will. But this will never be a pre-condition to get into any relationship.”Vidya Balan will be seen soon in her latest movie No One Killed Jessica, which is based on the Jessica Lal murder case. Vidya is happy about the fact the women are not giving up their careers for their personal lives anymore.“I think women should work at every age. It is fantastic! And this is happening in every profession. I recently met a girl at a store who got back to work just after two months of delivering a child, this is known as dedication. But yes, in our profession in the earlier days, the instant you get married, you are ceased to be an object of desire, which is why most of the actresses have retired. Today, no longer! I guess this is all got to do with the fact and attitude that today if someone is with someone, it will never stop you from desiring them!”This critically acclaimed actress, who has featured in movies like Parineeta, Guru, Ishqiya and Paa is rolling high these days. Neither her performances nor her dressing sense are being criticized. However, she admits that she has turned careful and fussy.“I guess over a period of time, I think rightfully so, I have got the courage to do only what I want to do. I will never get pressurized to do anything, which I don’t want to do, even if it is a right film, or a kind of film that one should be doing. It has to excite me and challenge me. It can be a super simple film, it can be a completely mad role or it can be intense….it can be anything across this wide spectrum….but I have to feel excited,” she said.This has also been her mantra when it comes to dressing up, especially since the time she become the favorite child of our fashion police. Now one will see her wearing only designer wears by Sabyasachi Mukherjee. She has got this new elegant look, which steals the focus wherever she goes.“I will always stick to what makes me feel good. If I feel that I am looking good in something, then I will surely wear it. And if it is not, then even if it is the most beautiful crafted creation, I will not. This is the only criteria I use when I am wearing anything these days and I think this has worked for me,” says Vidya.

To put her 100 percent to the relationship she has even broke her ties with her good friends Nihar Pandya and Yuvraaj Singh. However the same was not happening from Ranbir’s side. He was still being friend with Nandita Mahtani and many other girls. And so the relationship started feeling suffocating for Ranbir, asking for a space to Deepika. While Deepika’s concern was like ‘What space? Aren’t we a couple?’

However talks about his good chemistry with Katrina only added fuel to the already messed relationship. Affected with the rumors Deepika landed in Bhopal on the sets of Rajneeti starring Ranbir and Katrina. After almost two weeks she left from the place but now with no relationship with the actor.

Soon there not being together relationship become evident at the birthday party of Shabina Khan, where both of them were sat in different corners of the room.

Revealing more about the split, a source said, “Neetu wants Ranbir to be happy. She will never go against his choice. Ranbir always treated Deepika as a girlfriend and not as someone special, basically there was no passion in their relationship.”
