'Rock On' - Farhan Akhtar's new movie

Guys this trailer has totally blow me away (no puns intended). Its super hot! You must have a dekko. This is the latest from the makers of the 2001 cult movie 'Dil Chahta hai' (Ritesh Sidhwani & Farhan Akhtar) and its aptly called 'Rock on'. Staring Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai in a trendy new look (contrary to the TV star's sad
avatar), VJ-turned-actor Purab Kohli , Channel 'V' music guru Luke Kenny and Farhan Akhtar. Yup, the director-turned-producer is now debuting in this home production as the lead actor. And whats more Farhan has also sung a song in the movie.

'Rock on' is based on four passionate friends and their unsuccessful rock band. So, where's the twist in the script – after ten years when everyone has moved on in their lives, as faith would have it their rock band get a second chance... but can they come back together as a group? Well, you'll have to wait till August for the answer when the movie is released.

For now enjoy this teaser and remember to 'Rock on'!

Porsche's Posh New Phone

In an exclusive event held recently, Porsche launched its swanky new mobile phone - the P'9521. And yes you heard me right. Porsche – the German firm that makes super expensive, super performance cars like the 911 and the sexy Cayenne, (phew) – has now launched a super sexy mobile phone. Seems like the sports car makers want to cash on their brand name some more.

The phone is designed and produced in association with French-based Sagem Mobiles and has space-age features like fingerprint recognition, 3.2 mega-pixel camera and loads of other feature. The sexy flap phone is available in two colour options – dark brown (it looked more black to me) and white. Priced at a whooping Rs 77,000!! yes, now you can pull down your eyebrows back to your forehead.

The event was graced by actor Arbaaz Khan, model Upen Patel and hottie Kim Sharma. And yes did I mention they all were gifted a phone each by Porsche! Some people have all the luck.

Honda to launch a stunning new bike on June 30th 2008

After R15 - Yamaha's mini super bike, Mr. Dependable - Honda India, is all set to launch a brand new stunner themselves. Check the pictures on top, its from Honda India's website. It is speculated that the new bike will be based on the internationally successful CBR125s. Rumors are that it will have the following specs;

Engine: 125cc
Power: 11 bhp
Brakes: Front Disc
Tyres: Front & Rear Tubeless
Design: Half-fairing, Sporty Foot Pegs
Seat: Split-seated Design
Odometer: Digital

But I have my fingers crossed and hope they tweaked the 150cc engine which can pump up to 17 BHP with a twist of wrist.

During the Auto Expo, earlier this year the concept bike that was on display at the Honda stall. I guess it was done on purpose to get a feeler from the public about the displayed model. Compare the my Auto Expo Photos with the images from Honda India website.

The pictures above are the concept CBF Sports from the Auto Expo 2008...

...and this is the CBF Racing version!

Now that the Yamaha R15 has triggered so much of action in the Indian motorcycle industry, Honda too want a share of the pie and more importantly don't want to be left behind.

According to Honda's website the new bike will be launched on June 30th 2008... that next Monday. So hold on to your knickers coz Honda's new has gotta be a Stunner!
