The Roskilde Festival will be taking place from July 2 through July 5. Now on the surface this just sounds like a regular old enormous gathering of artists to perform. It's cool but what's so special? Well Roskilde happens to be one of Europe's biggest concert events. Every year in July 170 bands play for around 80,000 visitors in Roskilde. Even though Roskilde is among the oldest is rock festivals of the world, Roskilde is well known for constant development presenting a mix of well establish music names and new talents. In 2007 the festival presented: Beastie Boys, Bjork, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tiesto and The Who.

'Kambakkht Ishq' at Cannes Film Festival?

April 20 2009 PST

There's no denying that Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor's upcoming film, 'Kambakkht Ishq' is one of the most highly anticipated Bollywood films of the year! The film's producers are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to the film's promotion and are eager to promote it as an international film. The film will also release worldwide with the biggest amount of prints ever, even surpassing hits like, 'Ghajini' and 'Singh is King'!

Now we hear that the film may also be released at the popular Cannes Film Festival! If all goes as planned the stars of the film, Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor will be walking the red carpet in May in the south of France for the big festival! If you recall, in the past, stars like Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked the red carpet at Cannes when their film, 'Devdas' premiered there.

We hear the film is already being cut to shorten the running time and is being dubbed in English for the special screening at Cannes. It's not really surprising why producer Sajid Nadiawala would want the film to premiere there, as it's big on Hollywood glamour and style. It even features appearances by Hollywood stars such as Sylvester Stallone, of 'Rambo,' Denise Richards who starred in 'Wild Things' and Brandon Routh, the young star of the latest 'Superman' film.

It's apparent that both Nadiawala and the distributors, Eros International want the film to premiere at Cannes and see it as the perfect international publicity stunt to drive more curiosity. While the 'Kambakkht Ishq' team says the plans are going strong, the premiere has yet to be confirmed.

So are you guys hyped up to see the film? And what do you think of a possible Cannes Film Festival premiere? Drop us a comment below!

Barack Obama Chooses Aneesh Chopra as CTO

April 20 2009 18:05 PST

President Barack Obama has chosen Aneesh Chopra as Chief Technical Officer. The choice for some
has been surprising since many suspected that Obama would choose someone out of Silicon Valley.
Aneesh Chopra however hails as Virginia's Secretary of Technology.

Nevertheless, Chopra has been getting praise at his position, according to Alan Davidson, Googles
director of government relations and public policy, "As Virginia's technology czar Aneesh has been
relentless in applying technology to make government work better for citizens -- from requiring state
government agencies to make their sites more crawlable, to integrating iTunes with the state's
educational system." Barack Obama chose Aneesh Chopra because he hopes that Chopra will "promote technological innovation to help achieve our most urgent priorities -- from creating jobs and reducing health care costs to keeping our nation secure."

Chopra graduated with a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of
Government in 1997. He then served as Managing Director with the Advisory Board Company, a
publicly-traded health care think tank serving nearly 2,500 hospitals and health systems before he
went on to serve Virginia Governor Tim Kaine as Secretary of Technology.

On discussing his Barack Obama's choice, Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures, says "This man is a
'do-er,' plain and simple. He is a visionary leader and executive who can bring people together around
a vision to get the job done. Aneesh is a passionate advocate of how technology and innovation can
positively impact the lives of millions of our citizens through improved education, health-care, helping
better protect our environment and so much more."

So what do you think about the latest pick or Barack Obama. Are you familiar with Aneesh Chopra or
has the President of the United States put him on the map? Do you think he will have a positive impact

Slumdog Millionaire's Rubina Ali Almost Sold

April 20 2009 16:10 PST

Rubina Ali is back in the spotlight. After appearing as young Latika in the Oscar winning film "Slumdog
Millionaire," the child actress is in the middle of some family issues. "News of the World," an
organization known in the journalism world for setting up stings claims to have set one up with
Rubina Ali's father, Rafiq Qureshi. According to "News of the World" the sting was set up in which
journalist acted like a wealthy Middle Eastern family wanting to adopt Rubina for a sum. The price for
nine year old Rubina Ali was set at around $300,000.

According to Rafiq Qureshi "We've got nothing out of this film." However Danny Boyle and producer
Christian Colson has set up a trust that will aid in Rubina's education. Along with that, the young actress
will also get proper housing and help in dealing with media attention. In fact, sound engineer Rasul
Pookutty for "Slumdog Millionaire" has given Rubina Ali and co-star Azharuddin Ismail each a luxury
apartment in Kerala, South India.

But the luxury apartment isn't finished, and even if it was, Rafiq Qureshi wouldn't have moved. He
cites that Mumbai is his childhood home and has no intention of leaving it. At the hotel where the sting
went down, Rubina and her uncle Rajan More were also present along with father Rafiq. Recent
reports however have Rafiq Qureshi denying the reports. "This is just an attempt to malign her name.
After all she has become world famous now, hasn't she?" says Qureshi. As of now police are
investigating into whether the reports are true.

So Desi Hits! Readers, what do you think about the shocking allegations? Think there's any truth
behind the whole set up or is this just a media stunt by "News of the World." If it is true, do you think
Rubina Ali would be better off with another family? Let us know here at Desi Hits!
