Take on luv
In city, Imran Khan and Punit Malhotra talk about the mush quotient of I Hate Luv Storys
Lights, camera, action…enter Imran Khan and Punit Malhotra. They settle down without taking much time and before beginning with the interaction, a trailer of their upcoming flick, I Hate Luv Storys (IHLS) is shown. Then comes the first line from Imran, first time in the city with Punit, the first time director to promote the film on Saturday, "The trailer is over. Please clap, Punit needs support for his first film. It wasn't that bad " It certainly wasn't. In fact, it sounds rather interesting, a story of a girl who believes in love, played by Sonam Kapoor and a boy called Jay (Imran Khan) who doesn't believe in love.

Picks & piques
All that glitters...
Mani Ratnam's much-beleaguered Raavan has finally hit the screens and it's merely a true feast for the eyes. The troubles that haunted it right throughout - its shooting schedule - has left its indelible mark on the cohesion and coherence of the film. First cinematographer V Manikandan begged-off due to unspecified reasons and ace Santosh Sivan was brought on board, then came Mani's health scare mid-way through the shoot followed by several other niggling incidents plaguing the film. And it all shows right through the film. 

Calling it quits
Veteran actor Anupam Kher has walked out of the movie Dear Friend Hitler to respect the feelings of his upset fans.

Role model
