Kenya: Badmaash Mika Singh to Perform in Nairobi

Bringing you exclusives is what we aim for and we kick-start this year with a bang as we announce a grand concert by the Badmaash (bad man) of Bollywood, Mika Singh.

Mika is a singer, composer, performer and songwriter and has pelted out many chart-busters from his private albums and Bollywood films. He has courted controversy with the very famous kiss that he shared with Rakhi Sawant on his birthday, who promptly made a big huge hue and cry about it in the media and also went to the police. There were conference calls between the two on live television to talk about this and cheeky Mika went on to record a song called Pappi with Meet Brothers which actually had the whole incidence captured hilariously in a song. Mika Singh will be in Kenya for his first official concert on January 26 at the Carnivore grounds. You can keep it with East FM for more information and exclusive chances to win.

Amitabh Bachan Angry With Media

The Delhi rape case has been splashed all over international media. A young lady took a bus home with her friend after watching a movie. Six men who were on the bus raped her and brutally injured both of them and it led to people in India to protest and demand death for rapists. The demonstrations have been held all over the country, but mostly in Delhi, the capital of India and Amitabh Bachchan has been keenly following this whole ordeal. His disgust at the way the media has handled this whole affair is pretty evident on his personal blog and other social media. People were critical about the young girl being moved from India to Singapore for treatment. Media houses seemed intent on serving this up as breaking news as the hospital authorities and her family were trying to take her out of the hospital.

Big B recalls when he suffered from a heart attack and needed urgent medical attention, it took the ambulance about 20 minutes for the medical personnel and his family to rush him to the hospital because the media had blocked the gates of his house to get extensive coverage of this 'event'. More so, Bachchan expresses further disgust when a journalist managed to sneak into the hospital dressed as a doctor for exclusive' coverage while he lay helpless in bed.

Unfortunately the young lady has died from her injuries and as a result there has been a lot of pressure on the government to revise its laws. Bollywood personalities have taken to social media to express disgust and show support for the cause. The government has promised that the six rapists will be punished severely.

What To Expect From Bollywood In 2013

We had an exciting 2012 watching some amazing blockbusters. Several of them even crossed the Rs 100 Crore mark, ensuring their films superhit status. Looking at the calendar of releases slated for 2013, I could see that we are in for quite a treat - a mixed bag of sequels and perhaps a few original stories. So what can we expect this year?

This year we will see Hrithik Roshan in his superhero avatar in Krrish 3. He has extensively trained for this role and has also put in his all in this prject seeing that it is a Roshans home production. We will also see Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3 in his antagonist role that will chill many. Then the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan will do what he does best - romance - in the romantic comedy Chennai Express. Besides that there is quite a mixed bouquet of movies lined up in 2013 and the box office will determine if they're going to be a hit or a miss.

Happy New Year from the Just Bollywood team. Thank you for your support in 2012 and we look forward to bringing you all the latest gossip from Bollywood and beyond.
