Bollywood into Websites and Blogs

October 9th, 2007


Read an article in today, about Aamir Khan launching his website tomorrow. But same time he has stopped writing for his blog and had said “Alvida” to all his readers, fans and friends that he made during his bloging period. It was nice to see busy actor sharing his daily experience with all his fans, felt like he is one of us and not a big super star. Though his blog was just about his films but still….


As I was so interested in what Aamir Khan had done with his website or how will it look like and bla-bla. So just woke-up and straight went on his website, wow was my first word because the website-cum blog is very simple and nice. Website is still under construction.
Now I know why he said bye to his lagaan blog, he has started his own blog as Aamir Khan’s Blog. It’s nice to have him back in blog world.

Recently it seems like a trend or a kind of status symbol to be called as an internet savvy. So all our Bollywood stars are grabbing on their original name domains and making their way into internet world. To be very honest I went on all (I think so) the websites that our B Town people own. And only few could impress me – reason, all of them have very heavily flash loaded websites which takes minutes to load completely, some have stupid music starting with their websites, some have just left the half baked website in middle and vanished, some don’t even bother to check what’s happening with their websites and some have horrible web-designs with metal looks.

But there’s a website which has completely touched my heart and I love to surf it again & again. It’s very simple and touching, revealing every little detail about the whole family of the website owner i.e. Shammi Kapoor. And you would be surprised to know that unlike all our B Town people he has not paid a huge fee for making of his website. He has created all his pages himself and is very proud of it. So many people have asked him to redo his website for him, but Shammi wants to keep his website as it is. It’s true that things created by your own are close to your heart, no matter how they look to others. I truly loved spending my time on his website. I think Kapoor’s are one big happy family.

Second website actually it’s a blog, which I came to know today through rediff is Shekhar Kapur. I nearly spent my half day going through his blog and reading all his articles. I must say, he really has very interesting posts and his life experiences on his blog. Can’t believe that he poured his heart out on his blog for his readers and be so true. My favourite article on his blog is “The Fruit Seller“, actually everything that he has written has a kind of depth and originality to it, so his total blog is my favourite.

  1. We r looking for potencial company for India’s biggest Film Market.

    On behalf 4th INDIA INTERNATIONAL WOMEN FILM FESTIVAL 2008, Ms Shaymali Banerjee, Festival Director, speaking.
    This is in reference to the 4th India International Women Film Festival 08 slated to be held in New Delhi from7th to 14th Dec’ 08 at SIRI FORT AUDITORIUM COMPLEX & NCUI Auditorium, supported by the Govt. of India, Ministry of I &B & Ministry of Culture & Ministry of External Affairs . Around 140 films had been screened & 42 countries will be participating in this festival 08.
    We are the pioneer of such a new initiative where women are being showcased not as an object to be looked at on the screen rather women behind the camera. It relates to women issues in Film, which is very relevant in a developing country like India where we do talk about women empowerment but little do we practice.
    Your keen penchant for art, literature & film does make us believe that you wont disappoint us this year. Your kind participation as Market Participation would lead us to a world of better understanding. It would help this festival stand steadfast & survive. This is going to be a major breakthrough in the history of Indian Cinema & Indian Film Industry as well. India’s biggest Film Market.
    Without corporate support nothing is possible to be implemented in reality.
    Our objective is to give boost to promising women film directors working independently all over the world. Because film is no longer a mode of entertainment only rather an internally acclaimed visual text capable of exposing all that lies behind a transparent rendering of the real film festivals have become an indispensable event for those involved in this media. India International Women Film Festival, first ever in India, is expected to highlight the budding talents that remain otherwise unnoticed & their experimental works. Our slogan is the Women Behind the Camera. For further details please check our web site : We’ll keep you updated later this month.
    For sure, India International Women Film Festival which is a part of the Women Empowerment Project is going to create an epoch making history in the world of Indian Cinema. Thriving in a situation when film viewing was considered a vice it is really a hard task to offer a complete film festival meant for the women directors alone.

    Please revert to us as soon as possible. We do eagerly wait for your positive response.

    Best regards

    Yours Sincerely
    Ms Shyamali Banerjee
    Festival Director
    Ph ; 92 39 41 94 88 / 92108 40152
