I would like to marry again: Jwala Gutta

Jwala Gutta says she's open to working in films, but hasn't got any offers yet

Jwala Gutta, the left-handed Indian badminton player, has constantly made headlines for things apart from her game: her personal life, her looks, alleged link-up and the ability to call a spade a spade when needs be. But despite the controversies around her, she's still a topnotch player of the game - a gold medalist at the Commonwealth Games, who won Indian a bronze in women doubles at the World Championship. And Jwala insists she's concentrating on her game currently, an item song in a Telugu film recently notwithstanding.

'Andaz Apna Apna' sequel with Ranbir, Shahid Kapoor

Rajkumar Santoshi has been planning to make a sequel to his 1994 cult classic 'Andaz Apna Apna' for quite some time now. However, to get Aamir Khan and Salman Khan--who immortalised the characters of Amar and Prem in the rib-tickling comedy--on board is proving to be a major challenge. And now it seems Santoshi might just replace the two.

With his Shahid Kapoor-Ileana D'Cruz starrer, Phata Poster Nihkla Hero, almost ready for release, Santoshi is eager to put the sequel on floors. Mirror has learnt that instead of waiting for the two Khans, the director has decided to revamp the film with a contemporary storyline and a younger cast.

Audience watches a film in totality, critics in parts: Ajay Devgn

The jury is still out on the fate of Ajay Devgn's latest offering 'Satyagraha' but the actor looks far from perturbed as he enters his Juhu office. A cigarette break is on top of his mind and after a quick smoke, Ajay sat down with Mirror for a candid conversation.

The Prakash Jha film detailing the fictionalised life of an Anna Hazare like figure opened to a split verdict from the critics but the actor says that he is rather indifferent to the opinion of that lot. His Himmatwala was savaged by the critics and the latest one was met by accusations of sticking to the Jha formula, a mix of contemporary politics, romance and intrigue.

The question about this observation is met with a smile before the actor denies allegations of Satyagraha being formulaic.
