Halle Berry Injured, Rajesh Khanna Dead

18 Jul

Halle Berry Injured on Movie Set – the Oscar-winning actress has been taken to hospital after suffering a head injury on the set of her latest movie.

She was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Centre in LA by ambulance after receiving an injury while she was fighting a fight sequence for The Hive. Reports have been a little confused as to what exactly caused the actress’s head injury with some saying she fell and hit her head on a concrete floor and others saying that she was hit by a hard object.

The injury was thought to be serious enough at the time that the movie set was temporarily shut down. Thankfully after being checked over by the Cedars Sinai medical team Halle has now been released from hospital.

Her representative said:”Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set of her film, The Hive. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released.” It has also now been confirmed that she will continue with her role in the film.

The Hive is a thriller directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist) and Halle Berry plays an emergency operator who helps a young woman (Abigail Breslin) who has been abducted by a killer from her past.

Halle has already dropped out of The Hive once when she was unable to fit filming in with other roles she had committed herself to. The producers then changed their schedule to make sure that they could still have the Oscar-winner in the lead role and she joined back in again.

The 45-year old actress is currently engaged to Kylie’s ex Olivier Martinez and has been married twice. She also has a 4-year old daughter with the model Gabriel Aubry.

Rajesh Khanna Dead – the man described as the First Superstar of Bollywood has died at the age of 69 after several months of illness.

The actor began his long movie career in the mid 1960’s and played the romantic lead in around 120 different films during his career.

Although his first role in a major movie came in the 1966 film The Last Letter (Aakhri Khat) it was not until his part in the massive 1969 hit movie Worship (Aaradhna) that he really hit the big time.

He can truly be said to be the first of the huge Bollywood stars and when screaming fans followed him and women wrote professing their undying love to him it was a phenomenon that was unheard of before in India. In some of the more bizarre happenings during this time some women actually went through a form of marriage with Khanna’s photograph and others wrote him proposals of marriage using their blood for ink.

It is not surprising that such a level of fan devotion made Khanna a huge box-office hit and as a consequence a favourite of Bollywood movie directors.

The actor, who was born Jatin Khanna on 29 December 1942 in the North Indian town of Amritsar, broke millions of hearts when he announced in 1973 that he was marrying Dimple Kapadia, a young Indian actress. Although the couple had 2 daughters together it was not to be the fairytale romance form Khanna’s movies and his wife soon moved out of the marital home with their daughters complaining of the actor’s terrible mood swings and his bad temper.

His movie career was also destined to not end as many of his films and he turned to alcohol in the late 1980’s when younger actors started to take the roles which he used to be given without question. At this time he started to avoid going out in public and became something of a recluse for the rest of his life.

After Khanna became ill his wife moved back to take care of him and she and both of their daughters were with him when he died at his home in Mumbai.

Khanna was still seen as an important enough figure in Indian culture that when news of his death was announced the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sent his condolences to Khanna’s family and fans in a Twitter message.
