This monsoon, it's raining movie trailers!

It was a day when three new and very different movie trailers were launched: Rascals, a comedy, Tell Me O Khuda, a drama, and Soundtrack, a dark and gritty film.

Director David Dhavan is back doing what he does best. The king of comedy has directed an out-and-out-comedy in Rascals starring Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn.

Amitabh Bachchan came to unveil the first look of Rascals at PVR Juhu, a multiplex in suburban Mumbai, even as controversies continue to swirl round his film Aarakshan that released today. Amitabh readily agreed to be a part of this promotional activity after a phone call from Sanjay Dutt.

Speaking to the media, he said, 'Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) is always a part of my family. It's always a great honour to associate myself with people of my own fraternity. I am happy as our film industry is going through such a wonderful phase thanks to people like Ajay Devgn, Sanju, Salman Khan and many others and I wish them all the luck."

Since the film's leading lady Kangna Ranaut will be seen in a bikini for the first time, David Dhavan was naturally asked how he had convinced her to don the skimpy outfit. "There is nothing wrong in wearing a bikini as all the actresses do it today," he replied.

Ajay was more witty: "David went and told Kangna that you must wear a bikini because if you don't then we will have a problem with the censors."

Aarakshan's director Prakash Jha was also expected at the event but did not turn up. When asked about this cross-promotional activity, Ajay immediately replied, "Aarakshan is our film. We are all together. I share long and good relations with Prakashji. If we can help each other and support each other, what could be better than that?"

Rascals is slated for a Dusshera release. Lisa Haydon and Arjun Rampal will also be seen in the film.

Esha Deol was both nervous and excited about her film Tell Me O Khuda, since this will be her first release in three years. It will also be her mom Hema Malini's second film as director since Dil Aashna Hai in 1992.

At the trailer launch of the film Hema Malini, Esha Deol, Arjan Bajwa, Madhoo, Richa Sharma, and Sudhanshu Pandey spoke about the high hopes they have of the film.

Esha said her mother was quite tough on her. "My mom is a very hard task master when she directs, but as a mom she pampers me a lot. I believe that my mother is a wild woman, she knows how to get what she wants."

Her father Dharmendra was not present for the launch because he was out of the country.

Esha claimed that working with her father was "a dream come true". The first time they were to shoot a scene together she had a sleepless night, and next morning she came to know that her father too had not slept too well. Their first scene together was a very emotional one, and they both started crying after it was over. But after that, she was not scared of shooting with him.

She said her father helped her with her performance, gave her tips and once when she was caught yawning in front of the camera, he yelled at her and said 'you can't yawn when you are working'.

Hema Malini is directing a film after nine years. "I am passionate about making the film, it is a great experience being behind the camera. I am a very creative person whether it is dance, acting or directing," she said.

Did she have any difficulty directing Dharmendra? "I had no difficulty directing him because he is mine," she replied.

Initially, she had approached Amitabh Bachchan for the film but he was not available. "Yes, he was approached for the same film but I am glad that it did not work out since that is the reason Dharamji is in the film."

Hema Malini wants this film to be a big hit for her daughter. Hence the item number by Salman Khan which he agreed to do because "Salman is Esha's good friend and he respects me too."

She clarified that the film is not a copy of Mama Mia as has been rumoured.

It is a trend to add a bad word in songs. We've had Ishq Kamina, Nikam Kiya tere dil ne and recently, Bhag DK Bose. The latest in this trend is What the F from Soundtrack sung by Anushka Manchanda and composed by Midival Punditz and Karsh Kale.

Director Neerav Ghosh explained that 'F' stood for a character in the film called Fakhira. Looks like adding expletives to a song is the best way to ensure it becomes a hit.
