The audio launch for the eagerly awaited movie will be held at Putrajaya International Convention Centre.

Bollywood superstar Rajinikanth had confirmed his attendance earlier while Aishwarya arrival was kept under wraps as requested, reports the Star Online.

But sources in Astro, the official Malaysian partner for Sun Pictures, have assured The Daily Chilli, that the former Miss World will be arriving in time to witness the audio launch of ‘Enthiran’.

Music album of the much-awaited Bollywood film, ”My Japanese Wife”, was released here on Wednesday.

Present on this occasion were My Japanese Wife’s director Aparna Sen and actors Rahul Bose and Moushumi Chatterjee.

The film shot mainly in English is based on a novel authored by Kunal Basu and includes 16 songs.

Japanese actress Chigusa Takaku plays the title role of the Japanese wife in the film.

While interacting with the media at the music launch, Aparna Sen described her film as a ”modern-day fairy tale”.

“When he (Kunal Basu) told me the story, I thought it was so bizarre. It was so absurd and it was so charming. I found it utterly innocent…I mean, as I keep saying…they have quoted me on the book cover…. The story is almost surreal in its innocence. It is like a modern-day fairy tale,” said Sen.

Meanwhile, actor Rahul Bose, who has earlier worked with Aparna Sen in her offbeat films, ”15 Park Avenue” and ”Mr and Mrs Iyer”, said his character in the film is quite romantic.

“The character Snehmoy has stubbornness. He is writing a letter for the past 17 years to his lover, whom he has never met. During these 17 years of relation, he even marries her after eight years through letters, and they even live together like husband and wife in the same manner. One has to be really romantic for this. There is a stubborn and a strong man hidden behind the peace-loving and introvert man. Nobody can even imagine it. It was a beautiful character to play,” said Bose.

”The Japanese Wife” tells the tale of Snehamoy, a schoolteacher played by Rahul Bose in the interiors of Sundarbans, West Bengal, and Migaya, played by Chingusa Takaku. They start off as pen pals, fall in love and even get married through letters. And although they have been married for 15 years and live together, they have never met each other.

The film is scheduled for release on April 9.

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has chosen the House of Commons as the venue for her UK wedding celebration this week, say sources.

The Celebrity Big Brother star tied the knot with jewellery tycoon Raj Kundra in Mumbai in November, reports The Mirror.

A source reveals: “The celebrations have been organised partly by MP Keith Vaz and they are thrilled to be holding their special day at such an iconic British location.

“Shilpa’s having a ceremony in India too but the British celebrations are going to be big and they’ve spent a lot of money ­organising a grand affair.”

Shilpa and Raj got together in early 2007 and share a seven-bedroom house in Weybridge, Surrey.

Bollywood star Madhuri Dixit is set to play late Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in new film, ‘Mother: The Indira Gandhi Story,’ it has emerged.

Filmmaker Krishna Shah will direct the film, which will be released in two parts.

The first part will come up at the end of 2011 and part two about seven or eight months later.

Shah mentioned that the film would be multilingual.

“It will be in Hinglish,” Variety quoted him as saying.

He added: “It”s such an exciting, dramatic story. The canvas of her life is too big to be contained in one film.”

The filming is set to kick start in India in April next year.

Some parts of the film will also be shot in the U.S., U.K. and Russia.

Shah has apparently been writing the script for 23 years.

When asked about the budget he replied: “It”s bigger than ”Paranormal Activity” and less than ”Avatar’.”

kurbaanBollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have said the theme of their upcoming film Kurbaan (sacrifice in Urdu language) is global terrorism and its effect on society.

The duo launched an online game of their film in Mumbai on Friday.

Set in the United States, ”Kurbaan” is a romantic thriller with terrorism as its milieu.

“There is no connection to whatever happened in Taj and Oberoi. This is a horrible thing that happened to our city. No one can forget the attacks in Parliament, London and New York. Global terrorism is a horrible thing that has become a part of our lives. So this film is about things like that. But it”s got nothing to do with 26/11 and I don”t think we would ever make a film to try and capitalise on something like the anniversary of something horrible,” said Saif Ali Khan the lead actor of this flick.

The film tries to illustrate the post bombing consequence on the daily lives of Muslim populace living in the US after September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Kareena Kapoor uttered that her role in the film is one of the most powerful one in her acting career.

“I am playing the role of a university professor in the film. Saif and we are professors in Delhi University. We fall in love and end up marrying each other. Then we leave for America and how the girl”s life changes there, that is what the story of Kurbaan is. I think its one of my most powerful roles in my career. I really hope that people will like it,” said Kareena Kapoor.

Directed by a debutant Rensil D”Silva, Kurbaan stars Saif Ali Khan, Dia Mirza, Kiron Kher, Vivek Oberoi and Om Puri.

Salim Merchant and Sulaiman Merchant have composed the music for the songs penned by lyricist and screenplay writer Prasoon Joshi.

The film is slated for release on November 20.
