Blake Lively Wants to Have 30 Kids with Ryan Reynolds, and Who Can Blame Her?


Blake Lively's father revealed that his youngest daughter, 26, wants to start making babies.

Ernie Lively, who suffered a heart attack in 2003, was the first patient ever to undergo retrograde gene therapy for the heart – injecting a patient's own stem cells in the heart to repair damaged muscle and arteries.  The procedure took place at Utah School of Medicine's Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, where Ernie and his wife, Elain live.

Before the surgery, Ernie wasn't able to walk up a flight of stairs.  Now, he's looking forward to playing with future grandchildren.

"My youngest daughter is newly married and wants a big family," Ernie told University of Utah Health Care (via People).

"She says she wants 30 kids. I said, 'Why don't you start with one?'"

Lively's husband, Ryan Reynolds, told DETAILS the same thing this summer.

"We both come from big families — my parents did four, Blake's did five. A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know? We'll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think."

Bravo Act: Amrita tries to save woman from assault

Bravo Act: Amrita tries to save woman from assault
Thursday, November 28, 2013 13:41 IST
A shocked Amrita Rao not only watched a woman being beaten up on the streets of Versova but also tried to intervene

Amrita Rao was recently caught in a scary situation while she was on way to catch an early morning flight for the promotions of her recent release, Singh Saab the Great.

A source close to her says, `Amrita was rushing to catch her 6 am flight and had left her house at 4 am. On her way to the airport near Versova, she spotted an auto rickshaw driver beating a lady brutally and dragging her by her hair. Sensing something was wrong, she stopped her car and got out. The auto driver told her that he was beating the woman as she was a thief. Suddenly, three of his friends joined him. This is when Amrita decided to get back into the car and move away from the scene.`

Adding twist to the matter, the actress had forgotten her cellphone as she had left home in a hurry.

Adds the source, `Amrita threatened them saying that she was calling the cops but to her dismay, she realised that her cell was at home. She then went to a nearby police station, but there was no one present to register a complaint. As she could not wait any longer, she headed for the airport.`

On her return, she thought that it would be too late to register a police complain.

Amrita says, `I haven't slept well since the incident. I shudder to think what would have happened had the four men got together and attacked me and my driver. It was still dark and no one would have even heard our screams. This made me realise how unsafe the city is for women and the injustice that happens to the women in the country.`

She further adds, `Ideally, I should have called the police and informed them about the location and the rickshaw number, so that they could take action, but getting involved was too dangerous and would have only worsen things. The fact that I raised my voice against a women getting beaten up is the only satisfaction that stays with me.`


John Abraham's royal shooting schedule

John Abraham`s royal shooting schedule
The royal family of Dubai, who own a huge yacht, have made an exception for producer Firoz Nadiadwala, by allowing him to shoot on it next month.

The filmmaker admits that he didn't face a tough time seeking consent either.

He says, `It will be for the first time that this yacht will be featured in a film. It is a lavish one and has an open-air swimming pool and 50 staff members and two helipads. However, since I know the family for years now, they agreed to give it to me for a scene without charging a single penny.`

The makers of Welcome Back are going to begin shooting for a crucial scene in the first week of December.

`Director Anees Bazmee and I have visited the yacht and made arrangements. We are planning to shoot with aerial cameras. Apart from flying the crew and stay charges, we won't be spending too much money on the said location,` adds Firoz.

Arjan Bajwa to play a villain in Vidya Balan starrer `Bobby Jasoos`?

A birdie chirps to say that Arjan Bajwa has been pencilled in to essay a role with grey shades in Dia Mirza and her beau Sahil Sangha's upcoming film Bobby Jasoos starring Vidya Balan.

A source close to the unit reveals that the makers are keeping everything under wraps for now. The film's cast includes Ali Fazal and Tanvi Azmi. Vids essays a bumbling detective in the film. So can we guess Arjan -- who was seen in Fashion with Priyanka Chopra -- will throw a spanner in the detective work?


Bipasha Basu talks about the three important Fs in her life

Bipasha Basu talks about the three important Fs in her life
Films and fashion go hand in hand. So, it did not come as a surprise when Bollywood's dusky beauty Bipasha Basu recently came up with her accessory brand. CS chats up with the actress on her style quotient

Accessories matter
All of us know that accessories are so precious for girls. No girl feels complete without that one earring or matching footwear. Amongst the stuff that will come under this label are shoes, belts, bracelets and all things that find a fascination with women. It's interesting how different accessories can make a single outfit look completely different and striking. Trinkets, bracelets, anklets and belts give a finishing touch to a dress.

Fashion sense
I wear a lot of maxi dresses. I complement them with a lot of long chains. Also, what goes with it beautifully are bracelets which I call as chin chins (laughs). They can be of different materials like beads, stones and chain bracelets too.

Following dreams
In my life, there are three important Fs--fitness, fashion and food. I have already ventured in the fitness genre with my fitness DVD. I wanted to venture into fashion which is finally happening with my accessory brand. Since I was a model earlier, I have a bank of fashion knowledge. Also, I have a lot of designer friends who add to my fashion sense. In this regard, I would say that online shopping is a big boon for people who want to look great but don't have the time to shop. With this launch, I am taking a step ahead in realising my dream of venturing into the fashion arena. As for the food industry, that is one dream that I plan to fulfill in the near future. I am contemplating opening a restaurant.

Fashion tips
There are some simple tips that needs to be kept in mind while dressing. A heavy dress should be accessorised with minimal and simple accessories. Otherwise, it would be inviting trouble because the end result would be an over-the-top ensemble. In contrast, a simple outfit should be accessorised with a heavy statement piece that will give the outfit a character and make heads turn in the bargain.

Competition review
Most of my contempories are extremely well turned out. But if I had to gift an accessory from my label to someone, it would definitely be Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor. Not only are they close friends but also because they are style icons and I would like to get their opinion on my collection. They wear the most trendy stuff and carry it off with so much style and attitude. Young girls following fashion and the latest in style can get a tip or two from them.


War Getting Nastier: Ajaz vows revenge on Kushal and Gauhar

War Getting Nastier: Ajaz vows revenge on Kushal and Gauhar
Today's the day for role reversals and all the members of the Virodhi team are looking forward to giving tasks to the Hukumat team Taking the game sportingly, Ajaz challenges the opposing team to go ahead and present difficult tasks for them, to which Gauahar tells him that she will ensure it is the worst task day for him. Ajaz agrees to even do the push-ups and weight-lifting tasks. Kamya butts in saying that their team will not target the injured contestants like Andy and Tanisha targeted Armaan.

Andy plots with the team that together they would waste time and utilize this strategy to win the task. The team agrees with his strategy because the task rules do not put a time limit. Only with the intension to tease, Kushal tells Sangram that he will make him dance to an item number to which Sangram immediately responds that he will not do it.

Once the task begins, the new Hukumat team steps into the store room to strategize the first task. Ajaz runs behind them and overhears that the first task is being planned for him. In order to avoid the task, Ajaz rushes to the washroom and locks himself inside.

The Hukumat team, however, changes their strategy and gives the first task for the day to Andy. He is asked to carry out 50 push-ups while doing a handstand. Hearing the task, Andy tells the Hukumat team that the task is impossible and that he, along with his team, will discuss this task with the captain. Andy then calls his team members and asks them to waste time. Realizing that this is their strategy Gauahar complains about this and picks fights with the opposing team for wasting time. In the heat of the moment, Armaan yells at Tanishaa and she yells right back at him. Hearing this, Armaan gets shocked, but Gauahar calms him down. Finally, Andy gets ready to perform the task. However, once he starts, the overall situation gets very noisy. Because of this, Sofia intervenes as captain and decides to not award any points to either of the two teams.

The next task is assigned to Ajaz and he is told to shave his head within a span of 5 minutes. Ajaz refuses to do the task and as per the team's strategy, starts wasting time again. Sofia intervenes once more and tells him that since the task is not impossible, he will be required to do it if he wishes to earn a point for his team. However, Ajaz blatantly refuses to shave his head and the Hukumat team wins a point.

Later in the day, as Sofia gives the teams a washroom break, the Hukumat team professes their anger. They complain to Bigg Boss that their captain, i.e. Sofia is unfair and that they immediately wish to elect a new captain, without which they will not continue the task. The Virodhi team goes to the washroom for their break and wastes more than an hour there. Seeing how everything is moving, the Hukumat team decides to boycott not only the captain, but also the task on a whole.

They stomp into the living room while expressing their frustration towards the opposing team. They also decide that they will not make food for the 'Bigg Boss 7' housemates on that day. Seeing the heated situation, the Virodhi team keeps out of it all and remain calm. However, after some time, Ajaz gets aggravated because they pass some personal comments about him. The rest of the team calms him down and asks him to take his revenge later.

As the luxury budget task comes to an end, Andy's team is declared the winner. Hearing the good news, Sofia does a quick victory dance.

As the day draws to a close, Ajaz speaks out about him feelings. He says that the 'Bigg Boss 7' house and his fellow contestants have taught him a lot of lessons about life. He goes on to say that Kushal and Gauahar have hurt him and he will ensure that he gets his revenge before he leaves the house.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest flick "Goliyon Ki Raasleela - Ram Leela" was banned in Uttar Pradesh by the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court Thursday.

A bench of Justice Ashok Pal Singh and Justice Devi Prasad Singh passed the ban order while hearing a petition filed by Maryada Purshottam Bhagwan Ramleela Samiti from Bahraich.

In their petition, the Samiti claimed that the film, starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone and released Nov 15, had controversial and objectionable dialogues and had sought the cancellation of the Censor Board certificate to the film.

The petitioners also pleaded that since the film also hurt the sentiments of the Hindus by its name and other things portrayed in the film, it should be banned from exhibition.

The union and state governments as well as the state chief secretary, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Eros International and Bhansali had been made parties in the petition.

Britney Spears Swaps Spit with a Hottie

Britney Spears totally made out with a male model on the set of her "Perfume" music video yesterday in Los Angeles.

The pop star, whose Britney Jean album is scheduled for a December 3rd release, and the sexy Norwegian Alexander Kjellevik kissed and looked a bit flirty as they filmed a video for Brit's latest single. Hopefully the steamy video will provide a much needed boost for the track, which debuted at a lackluster #76 on Billboard's Hot 100 last week.

Is Hrithik Roshan going to US for treatment?
Thursday, November 21, 2013 12:28 IST

On July 7, Hrithik Roshan underwent a brain surgery in Mumbai to get a blood clot removed. Looks like his woes are not yet over. If sources are to believed, the superstar will be going to the US for another surgery as he has had a relapse. This, unfortunately, might

According to sources, the shoot of Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang starring Hrithik with Katrina Kaif was to begin from November 27. It has now been postponed to January.

Karan Malhotra's Shuddhi starring Hrithik and Katrina Kaif was to start in the first week of December, but now it has been pushed indefinitely.

A source close to Katrina informed that Katrina's films Phantom and Jagga Jasoos are also on the floor which is why it might be difficult for her to accommodate her dates later for Bang Bang.

A source on condition of anonymity also told us that Katrina apparently even met Hrithik and later his father Rakesh Roshan to discuss things, but she was told that Hrithik cannot take a risk and will be leaving soon for his treatment. He will only start shooting after his treatment is completed.

Hrithik and the production house remained unavailable for comment.

A few days back while talking about the success of his recently released movie Krrish-3 Hrithik had said that he is still suffering from headaches. He said, `Right now I have a huge headache. Even the vibration of my voice as I am talking to you gives jolts to my head. I take it as a part of my life.

In time I will be fine. I was supposed to be okay now if I had taken rest as the doctors recommended, but I got busy with Krrish 3 promotions. Now I have 10 to 12 days and I plan to rest, before I start shooting for Bang Bang. Then there is Shuddhi also. I plan to get that on the floor too. I have to get them both started. I don't want to give them more stress because of my health.`

When asked about Hrithik's trip to the US, Rakesh Roshan texted, `No, it's not true.` When we asked if the shoots of his movies are being postponed, he chose not to reply.

For all the style quotient associated with Alia Bhatt, the actress admits to being quite the opposite in real life

She says `Unlike my character in Student of the Year, I am not at all fashion conscious. I am quite simple and don't dress to the hiltregularly. My idea of fashion is 'less is more'.

If you speak of fashion and style, then Sonam Kapoor has an amazing sense of fashion. I simply love her dress sense and the wayshe carries herself is truly amazing. She's a style-icon in the truesense of the word.` We couldn't agree more.

CAUGHT! Priyanka Chopra’s Fashion Fiasco!

Miss World turned Bollywood star and now a singing sensation Priyanka Chopra is always dressed to impress; but this time around she let the fashion police down, in a mix of two completely different styles. 


Priyanka Chopra was caught at the Mumbai International airport, wearing an old stone washed blue jeans clumsily folded around her ankle, a flimsy printed white tee, a ripped jean sleeveless jacket over the tee and black shades; all of this paired with classy chic black stilettos.

However, the fashionista didn't quite impress in her mixed up wardrobe, but she did manage to look fresh, cute and lovely. The top half of her mis-co-ordinated attire looked hip and stylish, not to mention the disaster around her feet.

Priyanka Chopra is currently working hard on Gold Medal winner Olympic boxing champion Mary Kom's biopic, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali set to release in 2014, and is also side-by-side working on Gunday produced by Aditya Chopra. Where she will be sharing screen space with the extremely hot Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, the film is based on coal thieves who later join the mafia.

OMG! Shruti Haasan attacked by a stalker

OMG! Shruti Haasan attacked by a stalker

Actress Shruti Haasan was attacked Tuesday morning at her residence by a stranger who has perhaps been following her for quite a while now, a socurce close to her said.

"The stranger has been following her ever since she started shooting for 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya'. Three days ago, he had also come on her sets. At the moment, she is very stressed and for her safety, she has moved to her friend's place," the source said.

SHOCKING: Tanishaa, Armaan Caught Naked In ‘Bigg Boss 7′

This is the worst thing that could have happened in Bigg Boss 7. Tanishaa Mukerji and Armaan Kohli were 'CAUGHT NAKED' in the house. This is one reason why Kushal Tandon's entry has now been pushed by few hours. 


There is sheer chaos in Lonavla, amongst the Bigg Boss 7 crew members and creative team, while we file this report. According to one of the crew members, Tanishaa and Armaan were caught naked, in a very "awkward" position, right inside the house. Their entire act has been recorded on tape.

Keeping in mind, the time slot and censorship issues, the same will never be aired. But the fact of the matter remains: that their "intimate moments" have been captured on tape. What comes as surprise is that, both, Tanishaa and Armaan are adults. They are well aware of the eighty four cameras around them. Then why did they do what they did?

Their closeness and intimacy is something that cannot be hidden, even in portions which are aired on TV. They should understand that there is life beyond the reality show, and they could well do all the things post the show. What's the hurry?

Also, if insiders are to be believed then, Tanishaa has been requesting the production crew to let her talk to her mother Tanuja. The production crew was shocked and surprised, when Tanuja bluntly refused to comply to any of their requests.

Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan are trying their level best to put pressure on Colors, so they can evict Tanishaa. But the channel is trying to hold her back as long as possible, for reasons best known to them.

We had reported about Tanishaa's eviction on October 26, 2013 here, and also the entire account of what actually happened at the last moment is here. Asif Azim was evicted last minute then.

As we file this report, the production crew in Lonavla has gone in a tizzy. Kushal was supposed to make entry inside the house tonight (Wednesday, November 20, 2013), mostly at mid night. Now, after catching Tanishaa and Armaan in this awkward position, this has been delayed by few hours. Now, Kushal will enter the house tomorrow, Thursday, November 21, 2013 very early morning. The telecast is deferred by a day.

Do come back here tomorrow, for more updates and details about Kushal's entry. Meanwhile, do let us know, what you think about Armaan and Tanishaa's this act on Bigg Boss 7.

Did Salman meet Iulia in Romania?

Salman Khan was in Romania recently to shoot a song for his upcoming film, Jai Ho, along with his leading lady Daisy Shah. It looks like during the brief schedule of the film, the star might have managed to meet his estranged Romanian girlfriend, actress and TV presenter Iulia Vantur.

In an online interaction with his friends, Salman had revealed recently that he is still friends with her.
So, when Salman visited Romania, it seemed obvious that he would try and catch up with Iulia. According to a unit member, "Salman is quite popular in Romania. The video of him checking into a hotel has gone viral. A lot of fans would gather around the shoot location to catch a glimpse of him."

"I have worked with all the Khans in more than one film, which means I have a good chemistry with all of them. With Imran too, this is my second film. As far as the Khans are concerned, I would now love to act with the youngest, Azad. I hope I get the opportunity to work with him too," said Kareena while addressing a press conference. Kapoor was here in connection with the promotion of her film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein with Imran Khan. Kareena, who will be seen playing a social activist in the film, said, "In my last film, which was Prakash Jha's Satyagrah, I played a journalist.

However, Kutcher has now agreed to hand over a chunk of his multi-million dollar fortune to Moore as well as some shares in his technology business.
"Demi and Ashton's divorce has cast a cloud over his and Mila's relationship because it's dragged on for so long. Thankfully Demi's turned a corner. She's no longer bitter and she wants the divorce over and done with as soon as possible so she can get on with her life too," a source told The Sun newspaper.
"She's agreed to a settlement of several million and some shares in Ashton's various technology start-ups after he persuaded her to attend a tech conference with him to see for herself how much they'll eventually be worth. They're all happy and the papers are signed and with the lawyers now, so Ashton's free to officially propose to Mila," the source added.
Meanwhile, Kutcher and Kunis sparked speculation of their engagement four months ago after the actress was spotted wearing a gold band on her ring finger.

It's about two inches above my shoulders now. The minute I cut my hair I want it back. Always. It's a guarantee. I'm trying really hard to love this one," she said. Aniston's hairstylist Chris McMillan revealed that she wanted something modern. "She cut her hair.
She just wanted something new and modern and wanted to cut her hair. That's all," he said.
'We're the Millers' star's new haircut is reflecting her own personality. "She likes to look natural and easy and effortless. She's a low-maintenance girl when it comes to her hair and makeup. She definitely takes time to get ready. But it doesn't take her an hour," he added.

"I don't feel comfortable flaunting my body that much yet. I don't need to do that to show I'm grown up. I don't want people to talk about my choices or how little I'm wearing. I just want the conversation to be about the music and what I'm creating," she added.

Ram-Leela has been most difficult movie I had done

Ram-Leela has been most difficult movie I had done
Actress Deepika Padukone, is a traditional persons when it comes to love and romance. Her sizzling onscreen chemistry with Ranveer Singh in Ram-Leela notwithstanding, she is of the view that her notion about love is traditional. `I don't carry the baggage of real life when shooting for reel life.` she adds.

The 27-year-old actress is playing heroine opposite Ranveer in the musical adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy 'Romeo and Juliet'.

"I believe in the old school form of love, which I have seen growing up with my parents and my extended family. I am very traditional when it comes to love, marriage and relationships. This is because I do not know any other way as I have been brought up like this," Deepika said.

For the actress, who has collaborated with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the first time, has been the most difficult film in her career.

"'Ram Leela' has been the most difficult film that I have done. This is because I had to go on the shoot like a blank slate everyday and he (Bhansali) would mould me. I would go on the sets and take the day as it came. So, it was unnerving because you don't know how the day would go," she said.

Deepika has given powerful dance performances in the film but she did not undergo any formal training to polish her dance moves.

"Fortunately or unfortunately I have never needed to take any kind of formal training. I learnt Bharatnatyam when I was in school. It's not that I learnt it specifically for the films.

"Before 'Om Shanti Om', I went for Kathak classes for about six months, after that I think with every other song that I have done in movies, I rehearse before we go to shoot but there is no formal training," she added.

It has been a busy year for Deepika, who has given back-to-back hits with 'Race 2', 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' and 'Chennai Express'. However, she does not intend to take a break and would be filming her third film with Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Happy New Year'.

"It has definitely been an exhausting year. I had been juggling 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', 'Chennai Express' and 'Ram Leela'. But the results of these movies have been great and I am happy about it. In terms of the amount of work I am doing or the pace at which I am working, I am loving it. I think I am almost workaholic.

"There is no point in a day when I am not thinking about work, or something that is related to work. The only thing I regret is not spending enough time with my family," she added.

Tanishaa is said to be the only contestant on 'Bigg Boss 7' who didn't get any Diwali gift from her family 

No Diwali gifts for Tanishaa?

Tanishaa didn't seem to have a great Diwali in the Bigg Boss 7 house. She was the only contestant in the house who didn't get any gift or even a message from her family outside on the festive occasion. A crew member of the show says, `It was an activity which we had planned for all the contestants as they have been away from their family for long. Most of them are missing their parents, partners and kids. So on the occasion of Diwali we decided to send comedian Bharti Singh to surprise the inmates with gifts and messages from their family members.`

Adds the source, `The production team started approaching family members of the contestants to give some kind of gift or message for their family members inside the house. Tanishaa's family, however, did not get back with anything. Tanishaa's mother Tanuja and her sister Kajol apparently ignored the production house's request and chose not to respond. So Tanishaa did not receive anything in the special episode. She was upset but she preferred not to display any emotion in front of the cameras.`

Kajol's spokesperson, however, said that the family was not contacted for the gifts.

At the start of the show, Tanuja had expressed her displeasure at Tanishaa participating in the show.

Saif and I are in touch with reality: Kareena Kapoor

Saif and I are in touch with reality: Kareena Kapoor

It's easy to be carried away by the glamour of the film industry but Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor says she and her husband, actor Saif Ali Khan, are very much in touch with reality.

"Saif is still in touch with his professors and teachers. These days people party with the same industry people and want to be with them but we don't attend many parties. It's important that we should meet normal people too," Kareena said at an interaction here.

"We don't like to only be in touch with the industry people. We work, but we are in touch with our college friends too. So we are in touch with reality, or else in this industry and in this glamour world, one can easily get carried away," she said.

The actress, who comes from Bollywood's famous Kapoor family, says she has never chased success in her life.

"I am very dedicated to my work but at the same time I have also lived my life. Each actor gets so lost in the competition and the glamour of this industry that they are always chasing success. I don't think I have ever chased success.

"I have lived my life along with my career. My parallel life is always there with me. I don't go away from reality," added Kareena, who made her Bollywood debut in 2000.

Kareena is currently busy promoting her film "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein", directed by Punit Malhotra. Releasing Nov 22, the film also features Imran Khan.

Besides steaming it up, which is the most obvious thing you would associate with adult star Sunny Leone, the actress has also been kicking around in her new action film.

And, it's said that during one such high-octane moment, a car stunt, Sunny injured herself. A stuntman banged into her and hurt her solar plexus and ribs. While the injury isn't too severe, she will be out of action for a few days.

Kat, along with several other Bollywood folk, was watching a private screening of the recent Hollywood film, Captain Phillips. After the movie was over, RK reached the spot along with friend Ayan Mukerji, but when the duo noticed that there are some photographers present at the venue, they took a hurried U turn and made a quick exit from the theatre. Minutes later Katrina left the place in her own car.

Katrina Kaif
Says a source, "It was well past midnight when Ranbir arrived at the preview theatre. He did not step in. He had apparently arrived to pick up Katrina. Probably RK, Kat and Ayan had some late night dinner plans. But when they realised they might get caught on camera, Ranbir decided to drive away."

Katrina Kaif's car
Adds the source, "He was spotted when the screening was almost complete and when people were stepping out. It was obvious that he had not come to watch the film, but only to pick up Katrina."
Director Kabir Khan and his wife Mini Mathur, Arjun Kapoor, Vidyut Jamwal and choreographer Bosco Martis were also present at the screening. The special viewing of the action thriller starring Tom Hanks was organised for these select few. The buzz is that Kabir Khan is planning a project on its lines.
Of late, Ranbir has been driving around Kat late at night quite often. Looks like he loves being Kat's chauffeur with her car tailing RK's vehicle.
