NEW DELHI - Tamil superstar Rajnikant is set to hold a special screening of his new film “Robot” for the Bachchan clan.

“Rajnikant coming over to Mumbai to show us ‘Robot’ which incidentally has become a storm all over the country,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on microblogging site Twitter.

The film also stars Aishwarya Rai in the lead. Made at a budget of Rs.175 crore ($38 million), it’s the costliest Indian film ever.

When Ajay Devgn kicked Paresh Rawal

It seems Ajay Devgn took his role in “Aakrosh” too seriously and ended up kicking co-star Paresh Rawal.

Based on honour killing, “Aakrosh” will see Paresh Rawal as a cop. The film also stars Bipasha Basu and Akshaye Khanna.

While shooting, there was a scene which required Ajay to kick Paresh, who was seated on a revolving chair. But as the camera rolled, Ajay got so much in character that he hit Paresh so hard that he fell down. Later Paresh was in pain.

Ajay immediately apologised, but it was all taken in good humour by Paresh.


Vidya Balan in ABCL’s next venture?

Vidya Balan is considered as a lucky mascot for the Bachchans’ production house and it is being rumoured that she may feature in their next venture too.

AB Corp Ltd’s “Paa”, which starred Vidya along with Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan, not only received rave reviews, but also won four National Awards - best actor for Big B, best supporting actress for Arundhati Nag, best make up artist award for Christein Tinsley and Dominie Till and best Hindi film.

Vidya is also said to be one of the favourites of Jaya Bachchan. According to a source, when the two met at Shabana Azmi’s birthday party, they greeted each other warmly.

“At Shabana’s party, Jayaji hugged Vidya and was so glad to see her there. She is very fond of Vidya and considers her to be lucky for the production house since ‘Paa’ did extremely well,” said a source.
