“It is an upsetting thing. Media reports keep coming about some actor doing this film or has been replaced kind of stories. It’s wrong. When you don’t have clarity then do not write it. By doing all these kind of stories you give publicity to someone not needed,” Priyanka said at an interview.

Priyanka seems pretty upset with the media. The actress who has been trending in the media after expansion in her career wants media be sure before they write something. “According to media, I had all the film offers and now I am replaced again. It is not fair to do source based stories. One must cross check things,” she added.

The travails of Ram Charan’s debut Hindi film ‘Zanjeer’ appear to be unending. At a time when the unit members were happy that Sanjay Dutt who was sentenced to imprisonment in the illegal weapon possession case had completed his part, the Supreme Court imposed a stay of 6 weeks on the film’s release.

The Apex Court ordered the arbitrator to complete the arbitration proceedings in six weeks. Until then the film’s release was stayed.

With this order the film starring Priyanka Chopra and Ram Charan has once again landed in soup.

The supreme court gave this order, after the film’s producer Amit Mehra’s brothers, Sumeet and Puneet, approached it against the earlier order of the high court.

Amit Mehra is son of late Prakash Mehra who directed original Zanjeer. Amit’s brothers Sumit and Puneet allege that Amit, who had bought the film’s right from them, defaulted on payments resulting to which they terminated the contract.

The remake of Zanjeer features Ram Charan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Sri Hari, Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill. The film was slated for release this June.

Movies relating to the 90’s did not witness the strange idea of heroines acting in special songs. There were women who played special roles in item songs who were not encouraged by the heros. But the film industry of the 20’s witness quite a lot of changes in this aspect. Particularly top heroines in Tolluwood and bollywood inculcated the habit of acting as item girls in order to be successful in the industry.

The first priority would be Katrina who won name and fame for her song ‘My name is Sheela‘. In the latest film Priyanka Chopra too is in lead of this category of item songs competing with other heroines. Her item song ‘Babli badmash hai‘ might impress audience with her sexy movements. It seems that heroines of bollywood are more interested in earning around 1crore on item songs rather than looking for an action oriented movie.
