Fighting back
Music CDs are now passé. Everybody wants music in the digital format now and that’s why piracy and illegal downloads are at an all-time high. Bollywood has now decided to fight this problem. The film Blue is the first to have had a digital release of its music. T- Series,along with Hungama,has launched the music in pen drives,SD cards and also made it available for legal download on your mobile and the Internet. AR Rahman,who composed the music,thinks this is a great step forward. “It is a gate-opener for future expansions,because right now the music is going to have MP3 quality and in future it could have more high quality WAV files,” says the music director. It’s time to stop those torrents and go legal on your iPod.

Just say yes
Konkona Sen Sharma is all set to have her first release under Karan Johar’s banner — Wake Up Sid. The actress is obviously very excited and fans are a little puzzled about her sudden choice of commercial films. But Sharma told us the reason of doing this film. The director,Ayan Mukherjee,is the reason that the actress didn’t even think once about adding this film to her portfolio. “I love Ayan. When he came up to me with the film I knew I would need no convincing. Then I heard the script,it was so awesome so there was absolutely no chance of refusing the movie,” says the actress.

Khaana versus Khanna
Kareena Kapoor is the new perfectionist in town. Apparently the Kapoor gal went all out to get into the skin of her character Raina Khanna in Main Aurr Mrs Khanna. Kapoor wanted to make sure she knew all the minute details,mannerisms,gestures and reactions to every situation. That’s why the actress and director went for endless dinners just to discuss the character. The entire time they used to forget about the food and ended up only talking about Mrs Khanna. Let’s hope the dedication pays off at the box office.
