The Liquor Baron, Vijay Mallya, chairman and CEO of Kingfisher Airlines and Dutch entrepreneur Michiel Mol look set to become the new owners of the Spyker Formula One team, which was bought from the Midland Group only a year ago by sportscar makers Spyker Cars.

Reviews of "RGV Ki Aag"
September 1st, 2007
After months of hype, controversy and court cases, Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag finally arrived in theaters this week. But this unofficial remake of the 70s masterpiece Sholay failed to convince critics. Going through media reports, I can say that Ramgopal Varma must be regretting his decision to remake Sholay.

Media Reports on "Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag" Mid-Day - Kitne Aadmi Teh ( Theatre mein) It’s a mockery of Sholay. The direction is sloppy, the background noise is too ...

August 29th, 2007
  Bob Houghton's India will aim to give a big push to the football's rising profile in the country when they take on Syrian in the ONGC Nehru Cup Final encounter at the floodlit Ambedkar Stadium in New Delhi. The task is definitely not easy by Syrian having the psychological advantage of beating India by 3-2 in the league encounter a couple of days ago, if you goes by FIFA rank, Syria is ranked at 112 whereas India is at 151. Indian players looked a bit complacent after getting an early lead in Syria match, would be interesting to see if they have learnt any lessons from league match. India had a good run at the ONGC cup improving its performance match ...

Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapur Split?
August 28th, 2007
Is it true or just a rumour? I hope it’s a rumour, b'coz after three years of togetherness and a kissing SMS of Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapur, it will be stupid to see them split. Well! I always knew that this relationship will never survive, for a tough girl like Kareena she needs someone very macho and grownup (atleast in looks). I think she should have stuck with Fardeen Khan, they would have made such a cute and gore-chite couple. Never mind, Saif Ali is not a bad choice “if” he commits. As we all know Saif has got 'commitment phobia'. I mean first his wife Amrita Singh,  then long relation with Rozza, little bit of Bipasha and now Kareena. If he can pull head-strong Kareena ...

Official Websites of ICC Cricket Test Nations
August 27th, 2007
  There were lot of talks going on about the - Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the richest cricket body in the world, does not have its own website?
