December 29th, 2008 - 6:09 pm ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, Dec 29 (IANS) Just when you thought horror movies were based on real-life incidents and spine-chilling stories, “Raaz - The Mystery Continues”, a take-off from 2002 hit “Raaz”, is inspired from Sufi saint Kabir’s couplet.”The story is weaved around saint Kabir’s idiom ‘Bura jo dekhan main chala, bura na milya koi; jo dil khoja apna, ta mujh sa bura na koi,’ meaning that the evil is within and that is the message of the film,” screenwriter for the film Shagufta Rafique told IANS.

Directed by Mohit Suri, the film has Kangana Ranaut, Emraan Hashmi and Adhyayan Suman in the lead. The film is slated for release Jan 23.

No sleazy item numbers for Mona ‘Jassi’ Singh

After setting the stage on fire and bagging two awards from dance reality shows, TV actress Mona Singh is yet to be seen shaking a leg on celluloid. The reason, she says, is the offers that come her way are way too sleazy for her.

“I have received offers for doing item numbers in films but they are vague. I can’t dance around with 20 weird men while wearing revealing clothes and pouring alcohol on myself. That’s just not me,” Mona told IANS.

“I have never ever had that sort of image and I don’t even think I can carry it off well,” she added.

Sambhavna, who now features in dance reality show “Dancing Queen”, says she is particularly happy since a lot of women have started appreciating her.

“I had never thought that ladies would appreciate me because I tend to be rude at times but that is actually just due to my Punjabi accent. But whatever happened in ‘Bigg Boss’, people have told me I shouldn’t change,” she added.
