Filmi Forecast: Breakaway/Speedy Singh.

Let's chat a bit about the much ballyhooed (at least in any interview that Akki gives) so-called Hollywood venture by producer Akki. First off, the titles (plural) are stupid. I don't care for the Amrikan or the desi versions. On the poster - why oh why did you go and use that tired old pseudo-devanagri font style? Hideous.
This movie stars a random assortment of Hollywood has-beens and wanna-bes (Rob Lowe, Camilla Belle) as well as good ol'Anupam who we can always turn to for the role of the fatherly sardarji (it's almost as if he's reprising his role in Bend it Like Beckham). The film's biggest selling point in my opinion is that it includes Russel Peters in the cast. The guy really is hysterical (at least when's he's not recycling material over and over), but his acting chops are totally untested. Clearly he needs to work on how to pose for photos. The star of the movie is an unknown: Vinay Virmani. I don't know what this movie is about but I am guessing it is a hockey version of Bend it Like Beckham with a male lead. Also, I am told that producer Akki couldn't resist putting himself in the film as a cameo. I do not have high hopes for this venture and have zero desire to actually watch this movie.

I don't want to watch it either. If Akki really has some cash to spare, he could donate it to us bloggers. Blogging = not exactly a high paying job. LOL

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…
