Akshay Kumar is back in Action!!

You might say that Akshay Kumar was always present in the Industry and has been recently seen is Houseful 2. Well, you are right, he was always in the limelight. But this time the Real Khiladi  is Back in Action.

This time Akshay will be back to do what he is best known for… ACTION, ACTION and ACTION. He will be soon seen in a power packed action movie named “Rowdy Rathore”. This Bollywood action film is directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ronnie Screwvala. Akshay Kumar and the Dabangg fame Sonakshi Sinha will be the main cast of the film. The film is a remake of Telugu film Vikramarkudu and is scheduled for release on 1 June, 2012.

So what is this movie all about? Here you got a little sneak peak of the story:

Shiva (Akshay Kumar) is a small time conman in love with Priya (Sonakshi Sinha), a pretty girl whom he met at a wedding he wasn’t invited to. Into this picture perfect world enters six year old Neha who inexplicably believes Shiva to be her dad! And if this wasn’t bad enough, Shiva also becomes the object of a series of life threatening attacks by a gang of deadly criminals who seem to know something he doesn’t. While trying desperately to save his life and love, Shiva stumbles upon a deadly secret. A secret that will take him to a small town in Bihar state in India; a town terrorized by its ruthless MLA and the mafia he controls; a town whose inhabitants’ only hope for redemption is…Shiva!

Do check out the Official Trailer of  Rowdy Rathore :

Akshay Kumar was born in Amritsar, in a Punjabi family. His father was a government employee. Kumar was raised in Delhi before moving to Mumbai where he studied at Don Bosco School and then Guru Nanak Khalsa College. He studied martial arts in Bangkok and worked as a chef.

Indian Idol is back again !!!

Indian Idol… The name itself brings back lots of amazing moments that Indian Television audience has witnessed. It was a craze amongst all the sections of the society, right from kids to senior citizens. It started airing in India with the first season in 2004-2005. The last season i.e. Season 5 of this singing talent show was aired in 2010. The following year Sony had replaced it with another singing talent hunt show called the X Factor. The show had singers Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal along with film-maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali playing celebrity judges. But somehow the TRP’s of X Factor were not that impressive and did not create a lasting impression on the audience.

Indian Idol Season Six is preparing to hit the small screen in April on Sony Entertainment Television, just before the fifth IPL season kicks off. In fact, the auditions for the show will begin in February. So are you exited to have Indian Back on Television? Who can forget the winner of the first season of Indian Idol was Abhijeet Sawant, from Mumbai. Do you know who were the winners of Season 3 and Season 4 ?

Season 1 – Abhijeet Sawant

Season 2 – Sandeep Acharya

Season 3 – Prashant Tamang

Season 4 – Sourabhee Debbarma

Season 5 – Sreeramchandra Mynampati

Season 6 –  Well, you will have to wait for it 😉

Indian Idol is incomplete without the amazing judges who have been the backbone of the show. But almost every season judges were replaced with a new one… except Mr Anu Malik. Yes, he is the only judge that has been in all the 5 seasons 😉

Will Mr Anu Malik be in the 6th season as well….? Speculations are high on the following singers – Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu. And the race to host his show is also on, with Hussain Kuwajerwala and Mini Mathur being considered as the clear favourites.
