Mobilink to Charge Rs. 2 for Every Helpline Call

Mobilink has announced that every call made to its helpline will be charged at Rs. 2 plus tax (Rs. 2.42 including taxes) from November 15th, 2010.
It merits mentioning here that Mobilink had introduced this idea of charging helpline calls back in August 2008, which was then followed by all other cellular companies. You may know that Pakistan is the only country in the world where helpline calls are being charged.
Mobilink had then imposed 50 paisas on every

Freida Pinto wants people to praise acting skills, not beauty

Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto said that she was smitten by her own beauty earlier in life but now doesn't think too much about her good looks.

The Mumbai-born actress, who has been dating her co-star Dev Patel since 2008, was once big-headed about her beauty and used to take compliments too seriously, Contactmusic reported.

"When I was small, a lot of people would say I was a cute chubby little baby, with light blue eyes, and my mum said initially I let it go to my head. But by the time I reached college, I kind of toned it

Bipasha agrees to lock lips and hot scenes!

Bipasha agrees to lock lips and hot scenes!With Hollywood hottie Josh Hartnett in Roland Joffe's Singularity

While it is known that Bipasha Basu has been signed for Hollywood film Singularity with Josh Hartnett. The big news is that she will shoot for some hot scenes with her hot co-star kissing.

The actress, who flew off for Roland Joffe's 35 million dollar shoot last week admits, there will be kissing and lovemaking scenes in the film, and that she's comfortable doing them.

Bips argument is, "If I can do kissing scenes in India then why not for a Hollywood film? I have only kissed John (Abraham) and Ranbir (Kapoor) in Bachna Ae Haseeno - though I tried to wriggle out of that."

Singularity is a passionate love story about an Indian bodyguard and a British soldier set apart in two time zones.

The actress however has some entirely different worries, "I am a bit unnerved about working with a Hollywood team for the

Golmaal 3 vs. Action Replayy: And the winner is...

Golmaal 3 vs. Action Replayy: And the winner is...Aishwarya Rai, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Ajay Devgan, etc. etc- we had loads of stars fighting it out this Diwali as two big and promising flicks hit the theatres together. While Action Replayy came with a baggage of retro feel, Golmaal 3 ushered in lots of chuckles and guffaws.

But who has won the box office war? Though, it's too early to declare the final result, if the initial reports are anything to go by, then, certainly, Action Replayy has been licking dust amidst the giggling Golmaal crew.

Golmaal 3 promises laughter and a 'paisa vasool' entertainment despite being mindless and stupid at times. So, the public (smeared heavily in Diwali colours) are flocking in with their tub of over-priced popcorns munching on to every one-liner thrown in by Shreyas, Ajay, Tusshar and the likes. With Johny Lever and Mithun Chakravarthy joining the wagon wheel, the starry ensemble of G3 has only got bigger.

Action Replayy, on the other hand, has failed to lure the spectators. The 70s world has, surely, not been an enticing invitation and the threadbare storyline and mediocre performance has marred the

Bhansali's Guzaarish in a plagiarism conflict

Bhansali`s Guzaarish in a plagiarism conflictWith only days left for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish to hit the theaters it seems that the movie has run into a bit of a copyright storm of its own. As we all know by now the movie deals with the moral and emotional implications of euthanasia and mercy killing. The movie stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead roles.

Recently a noted novelist Dayanand Raajan accused the writer of Guzaarish for lifting the core theme of his new book for the plot of the movie.

Dayanand said that Guzaarish has a striking similarity to the plot line and characters of his movie and it seems like a complete rip off. Dayanand also said that he read his new novel to some Bollywood personalities and the writer of Guzaarish must have lifted his idea through a common friend.

The makers of Guzaarish have been served with a seven-day notice period after which Dayanand will go to
