WEEK OUT

Knotty issues with Hollywood
Hollywood and its love for all things exotic never ends. So, when star-couple Russell Brand and Katy Perry decided to come to India to exchange vows, things heated up and got a tad bit out of control. Their extravagant hush-hush affair that featured a Hindu guru and a fortune-telling parrot, was spoken in the media for all the wrong reasons. Brand and Perry, who tied the knot had to board a helicopter near Ranthambhore National Park and leave for Jaipur, from where they had an onward journey to the Maldives for their honeymoon. The chopper, it seemed, was issued to ferry a critical patient out of Ranthambore to Jaipur but was used by the couple for their personal use. And if that wasn't all, the couple's security guards also roughed up photographers and enraged district officials by causing unprecedented levels of noise pollution.

Hisss is history

The recently released and poorly rated Hisss, starring Mallika Sherawat, sank without even creating a buzz at the box office. And if a snub wasn't enough, the film ran into fresh controversy with David Lynch's daughter Jennifer Lynch, who was directing the film, abandoned both the project and India before it reached the edit table. Jennifer says that she was miffed with producers who wanted a different version from the original. She also added that the film that she concieved and wanted to be made was a love story, but it ultimately took the shape of a 'horror film' thanks to the whims and demands of the producers. Looks like there is more than bad script and acting that plagues Hisss.
