Bollywood is not Trisha's cup of tea

Bollywood is not Trisha`s cup of teaMaybe, the actress is literally disappointed with the mixed reviews she received for her performance in Bollywood debut Khatta Meeta.

But the actress strongly admits that Khatta Meeta isn't a flop movie as the media channels are projecting. Well about losing some of the Bollywood offers, Trisha isn't worried as she says that Hindi film industry was not her main concern.

Says Trisha: 'I am looking forward for the best offers irrespective of regional factors. I am really surprised to hear about media stories that claim that Khatta Meeta was a flop movie. Well, I have got nothing to do with the film's results as everyone has their own roles in determining the film's results, not just the actresses.'

The actress also utters that she has now started signing films that delineated her in a substantial character. It was very much illustrious with her previous film Abhiyum Naanum. The actress has now signed Ajith Kumar's 50th film Mankatha and

While Aamir Khan has pretty much created a world of his own, especially so after '3 Idiots', Salman has come back with a bang as well after 'Dabangg'. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh is waiting for the kill with 'Ra. 1' and 'Don' lined up. So does one see some good battle beginning once again in 2011 between all these actors when it comes to occupying that top slot?

"There are no battles or wars but I'm sure the media will make it a great adventure for us. It's going to be lively for sure", laughs Akshay when asked to comment.

Turning serious, he goes on add, "I think all of us are past the 'fight for the top slot' stage. We have created our own

Kareena is not happy with Rohit Shetty

Kareena is not happy with Rohit ShettyDirector Rohit Shetty has carved a niche for himself in the industry with his blockbuster Golmaal series. The last two films were super hits and he made the characters of the film very popular with his unique comedy timing.

However, there is one actor or say actress, who is not very happy with the director and she is none other than our very own Kareena Kapoor, who has been associated with the series since the second film.

In Golmaal Returns, the second part, Bebo was portrayed as the television serial freak wife Ekta, who keeps on suspecting her husband, played by Ajay Devgn. Their chemistry rocked and the film was a big hit of the year.

However, Kareena does not seem to be very happy with the development of the third film. She found the treatment of the film very boring and comic situations very repetitive. She was fed up shooting at the same locations again and
