Bollywood Garam: Seems like even the makers of the movie ‘Gandhi to Hitler’ did not know what to convey to the audience through it. It was obvious that even the audience could not get the idea of the movie.

The involvement of Gandhi seems as if it would be about world peace and then suddenly some sympathy is shown towards Hitler. On one side Hitler is shown to be a great patriot he was and on the other side Gandhi is seen disheartened by his ways.

No particular direction has been chosen for the movie in terms of message. Just for a change a small love story of Hitler has also been narrated which involves his mistress, Eva Braun.

Raghuveer Yadav, who plays the role of Hitler has failed to impress the audience with his portrayal of the character. The movie has several moments where the idea clashes between Hitler and Gandhi have been shown. There are also possibilities that the movie may not even be interesting for those few people, who are curious to know about Hitler and Gandhi. Right from the beginning the movie fails to grab attention. Actress Neha Dhupia, who is seen in a very small role, also seems lost.

Gandhi to Hitler is good for those who want to get bored.

Bollywood Garam: After making waves with  ‘Swayamwar’ on television, Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant is now all set to appear in another tele-series called ‘Gajab Desh Ki Ajab Kahaniyan’. But since the actress is now quite popular, she has kept her own conditions with the production unit.

Sawant has demanded for clothes and accessories and also C string. Her latest demand has reportedly left the crew members baffled and miffed as the wardrobe of the actress will cost the production unit a whooping Rs 70 lakhs.

Moreover, Rakhi has also made it clear that she wants the C string also be included in her wardrobe. C string is a recent adaptation of G string. The Indian market at present does not have the range but is already popular abroad.

Rakhi has even threatened that unless her wardrobe is ready, she won’t begin shooting for the show. Currently, the whole crew is trying their best to assemble the wardrobe for the show host. C-string is a range of lingerie that does not have strings and is available only abroad currently. Rakhi has reportedly told the production house to arrange the lingerie in three colors, purple, pink and red and will not be shooting unless it has been arranged.
