Jon Cryer Reacts To Ashton Kutcher Joining ‘Two And A Half Men’

Jon Cryer is finally speaking out about “Two and a Half Men” and he said he is thrilled his hit comedy will return to CBS.

“I’m jazzed about the news this morning that ‘Two and a Half Men’ is coming back! For all the rest of the cast and crew I’m sure they are equally excited,” Cryer, who plays Alan Harper on the series, said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Friday.

Cryer, who, for the most part, kept quiet following Sheen’s very public spat with CBS, the show’s parent company, and Warner Bros., the studio that produces the show, also offered praise for his departing co-star as the show carries on without him.

“I want to express my enormous gratitude to Charlie Sheen for eight great seasons,” Cryer’s statement to Access Hollywood continued. “I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done together and I will miss him. But I’m also looking forward to this new beginning.”

On Friday, it was confirmed that Ashton Kutcher will join the hit comedy series from creator Chuck Lorre, and Cryer had nothing but praise for his new co-star.

“Ashton is an extraordinarily talented guy and his presence will be an asset to our show,” Cryer’s statement read.

“We are old friends from our male-modeling days and we’re both looking forward to being judged for our comedic artistry, as opposed to our exceptional physical beauty,” Cryer added, making a reference to Ashton’s pre-TV and movie career as a model.

Shagird Review – Unpredictably good

Have you heard of Shagird before? You might have but it probably didn’t stay in your mind for long just because the current big stars are not in it. But Shagird is certainly a dark horse with thrilling story. It has lots of twist and turns, and just a blink of the eyes could cost you an important plot. It brings to light the true nature of people in power, like politicians, gangsters and police officers.

Shagird is about a police officer, who does his duties dutifully in his own unusual ways. He has good rapport with corrupt politicians and gangsters. He does anything to let his family lead a lavish life. In the meantime, he cleans up the scum in the city. However, problem crops up when an honest police officer joins his team.

Shagird is a hard-hitting film that reflects the true nature of Indians in power. It keeps you on your toes all through. ‘Unpredictability’ is the USP of the film. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia has proved that he is an efficient storyteller. He has handled the plots beautifully. Nana Patekar is a gem as always. He fits perfectly into the character. Other cast of the film Zakir Hussain, director Anurag Kashyap, Mohit Ahlawat, Rimmi Sen, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Khan Jahangir and Virendra Saxena too have done justice to their roles.

On the whole, Shagird is a well-made film with power-packed screenplay and wonderful performances. You should not miss this unconventional film!

Director : Tigmanshu Dhulia
Cast      : Nana Patekar, Anurag Kashyap, Mohit Alawat, Zakir Hussain, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Khan                         Jahangir Khan

Ragini MMS gets mixed reviews

The hype around Ragini MMS was huge. Its raunchy posters and the subsequent protests added more publicity to the film. But this Ekta Kapoor-produced film is unlikely to live up to the hype, as it has got mixed reviews from the critics. Some gave good reviews while others gave not so impressive ones.

Popular film critic Taran Adarsh is in all praise for the film and thinks that it’s a trend-setter. “Ragini MMS is a fine amalgamation of horror, paranormal activity and sex. In simple words it is a creepy, spine-chilling date movie that imparts a story which is daunting, imaginative and unconventional. It is an innovative form of sex and horror, which will impress the Gen X. Have a panicky weekend with Ragini MMS,” he wrote.

Gaurav Malani also thinks Ragini MMS has the elements to send chills down the spine. “Ragini MMS is amongst those contemporary horror films which don’t delve much into the past of the ghost, yet trying to present some chilling moments,” he wrote, adding, “While it’s not absolutely original or the scariest film ever, it’s not formulaic either, like most Indian face-horrors. Ragini MMS stays true to its genre and does induce some spooky moments.”

However, Mihir Fadnavis is not impressed by the film. “Ragini MMS is a gigantic, rubbery wad of badness — it is just another derivative, unpleasant exercise in cliches being passed off as horror,” he wrote. “Ragini MMS is never terrifying. Worse, it ends with a silly twist that’s much more likely to raise eyebrows than goosebumps. Budget limitations are no excuse for sloppy, nonsensical writing, for as busy as this movie is, you’d think it would have more going on,” he added.

Shubhra Gupta too thinks that the film has nothing unique to offer. “Ragini MMS’ is strange mix of Hollywood horror influences and old-style Bollywood ghost stories. The film forgets a basic axiom : what you cannot see is far more scary. `Ragini MMS’ borrows its voyeuristic thread, and a face too heavily from previous Ekta production Love Sex Aur Dhoka, and goes about showing us too much,” he wrote.

Well, Ragini MMS, directed by Pawan Kripalani and starring Raj Kumar Yadav and Kainaz Motivala, has received mixed reviews from the critics, but we will come to know its final verdict after a few days

I haven’t been on any dates recently because I have been working so hard and I get very bored very quickly with men.

Told Mallik to Mid Day, “He had the guts to approach me for a sequel to that song ‘Saali Bitch’. He wanted me to ‘debut’ in his music video that he plans to come up with and is calling it Saali Bitch 2,” said Malik. I’m someone who supports women’s issue and causes, and this guy Ishq Bector just approached me to feature in his next video. He is destroying today’s youth with such messages. For me it’s a straight decline.”

Bector’s songs, time and again has raised a lot of questions related to Censor Board with its obscene lyrics and videos. On the other hand Veena is also not abandoned by controversies, so guess this will be a good pair for their next venture.

Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai keeps it simple in pretty brown dress at Cannes

It must be difficult having to come up with outfits for every single occasion ahead of the Cannes Film Festival.

So Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai can be forgiven for going for a plain outfit as she attended a photocall for the festival yesterday.

However, while Aishwarya’s dress was absent of any glamour, it flattered her lithe figure and complemented her brunette hair.

The 37-year-old actress teamed the dress with a pair of black strappy sandals as she posed on the dock.

Aishwarya, who is arguably one of the most recognisable Indian actresses, was at Cannes to announce she would be signing on for a new project – a tale of a fictional Bollywood star entitled Heroine.

Asked if the film would be at all autobiographical, Aishwarya replied: ‘That’s what the viewer will probably be searching for, but very honestly, as an actor, it’s your professional responsibility to give to your characters with absolute commitment.

It’s not just about you going out there and doing your own thing and creating your own character.

‘It’s the director who wrote it and that’s the way it gets read and that’s the way it gets eventually brought to life.’

The movie, from director Madhur Bhandarkar, is billed by the production company as an ‘entertaining, daring, emotional, shocking, glamorous, scandalous behind-the-scenes account of the reality behind the world of glitz and glamour that our stars inhabit.’

Aishwarya posed at the photocall with director Bhandarkar and producer Ronnie Screwvala.

The actress has been keeping busy during the Cannes Film Festival, and also made an appearance at the opening night ceremony and screening of Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris looking stunning in a nude asymmetric beaded gown.

A release date for Heroine has yet to be announced, but production is due to commence in June.

Lady Gaga Almost Shows Off Her Little Monsters In Sheer Dress

Consider this NSFW, please! It’s just another day and another outlandish outfit for Lady Gaga, but Mexico City got more of an eyeful than they bargained for! At a photo call held to promote Born This Way, Gaga rolled in wearing a super-sheer, skin-tight, electric blue dress with only two pieces of tape preserving her … modesty. All the attention may have gone to her torso — which you can view in all its glory in out gallery below — but if anyone managed to drag their eyes away, they’d see that she had the most insane pair of platform shoes on. The craziest she’s ever worn (which is saying a lot)! We’re stumped as to how she could possibly walk in those? And with regards to that outfit, this was just two of her “gagas.” Way better than what Gaga pulled out in Harpers Bazaar, right?
