Kunal Khemu not comfortable shooting intimate scenes

Even before the start of the promotions of Mahesh Bhatt's Blood Money, the film hogged limelight for a leaked intimate scene between Kunal Khemu and Canadian girl Mia. The actor says it was not a publicity strategy and he is not comfortable doing such scenes.

Many feel that the film has garnered some extra bit of promotion and much needed controversy with the leaked video, but Kunal said: "We as a team don't think it's the right publicity strategy. We don't know who has done that. That's not what the film is about and we don't want to mislead the audiences."

"Whether you are in a relationship or not, it is always difficult and makes you nervous to do intimate scenes. If you are in a relationship, communication is the key," said Kunal who is dating Soha Ali Khan.

Govinda to start production house to launch daughter

Bollywood Actor Govinda, who has successfully completed 25 years in showbiz, is right now trying to settle his daughter's career in the film industry and says that he will start his home production to launch Narmada.

"I am starting my production, which I never wanted to do. Film production is very tough. Initially when I started, I was not successful but my wife and family members supported me... you should not give up," Govinda, who produced the movie Ssukh in 2005 which didn't do well, told IANS.

"So finally I am starting my own production and I will start for Nammu (Narmada). I have a good subject for her and I have worked very hard on it (script)," he added.

For quite some time, Narmada was trying to get into Bollywood but things didn't work out for her. There were reports that she will make her debut opposite boxing champ Vijendra Singh in director Lovely Singh's Manchali.

Now Govinda wants to ensure that his 22-year-old daughter is launched in such a manner that she carves a niche for herself.

"I want her to create the best with whatever she has got. She should become confident in life that she should create a correct situation for herself," the 48-year-old said.

Blood Money not similar to Blood Diamond,Naam : Bhatt

Bollywood Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says that his upcoming movie 'Blood Money' is not inspired by Hollywood movie, 'Blood Diamond' and has no similarities to own directorial film 'Naam'.

A film Produced by Mahesh Bhatt, the film stars Kunal Khemu, the protagonist, who migrates to South Africa due to a lucrative job offer but ends up finding himself in the middle of an organised white collar crime syndicate.

The story line of this film seems similar to Oscar winning film 'Blood Diamond' starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Connely. Also, 'Blood Money' is touted as a remake of Bhatt's own film, 'Naam' starring Sanjay Dutt. But Bhatt denies all these talks.

“No, our film is not the Indian version of 'Blood Diamond' or anything of that sort. 'Blood Diamond' dealt only with the industry of diamonds...that particular trade. Our film is a journey of a middle class Indian who dreams of getting the best in the world and how this man suddenly finds himself in the company of people who deal with notorious activities," Bhatt said.
