Pogo might NOT premiere GOF

As you all know, most of the HP movies are telecasted at Pogo. And I think Pogo might NOT telecast GOF as it has PG-13 (U/A in India) rating. But always pray for the good, keep your fingers crossed until May, in which most of the dubbed HP movies are shown.

New Gallery: UPDATED

I've updated my web-album with some high-res pics. To view full album, click on the image.

There are two news for Dan for today. In first-one, Telegraph newspaper posted an interview with Dan in which he told about Equus, his career choices as an actor and taking on a part in this serious play.

According to Newspaper,

"JR Maiming a horse is a far cry from riding a hippogriff, isn't it?
DR Completely. There came a point on the third Potter film when I thought, acting is what I want to do. I thought it would be a bad idea to wait till the Potter films were all finished to do something else. There are certain people who will be more than happy to see you in any other role you like, and there will be some who will never, ever see you as anything other than Harry Potter. Once you've accepted that, it's fine - you just do whatever you like. With this, they can say I'm good or terrible but the one thing they can't say is I haven't challenged myself."

In the second news, Forbes mag has released "Young Hollywood's Top-Earning Stars", in which he has been ranked at No. 2, earning over$13 million USD (around 574 crores) for OOTP movie.

Rowling sues over Pirated editions of Potter

After unscrupulous sellers used the Indian version of the website to sell unauthorised versions of Jo's books, she is suing online auction site

JKR has obtained an injunction which "prohibits eBay from listing illegal copies of her works.The court order is a setback for eBay because it is the first time the company has been obliged to police its sellers’ auctions for copyrighted material."

According to TheTimes,

"Neil Blair, Rowling’s legal adviser at the Christopher Little Literary Agency, said that she welcomed the court order. “Over the years eBay has appeared to be unwilling to control sellers on their site offering pirated or forged Harry Potter items for sale to innocent fans,” he said. “We have asked eBay on numerous occasions to assist by taking preventative steps to avoid these sales – steps that we are aware they can introduce. As these requests were not heeded we had no choice but to seek judicial intervention.
“J. K. Rowling has previously warned fans on her own website about the sale of fake signed books and other pirated Harry Potter e-books on eBay.”

Gambon: Dan is growing up

In a recent interview, Michael Gambon aka Dumbledore talked about Harry Potter and Daniel Radcliffe's west-end debut, Equus.
He said : "I was in the makeup chair recently, and someone brought in two kids. I peeled the beard off, and they started crying. They couldn't believe what they were seeing."
Talking about Dan he said: He's growing up. He's a proper theater actor now. He's naked in this thing, so all the girls will go out and see it. I'd be frightened running around the stage with nothing on at all. When you stop running, one thing keeps moving. I bet he didn't think of that."
