Seeing red over blue
Hi da hi my dahlings! My phone has been ringing incessantly since early morning. My wafadaar readers are calling, smsing, mailing and even faxing to say how they absolutely looove my take on our glam glamwalas. Some even want to start a fan club, soon. Not a bad idea, what say? But there’s time for that, yet. For now, let me update you on aaj ka garma-garam gupshup.
If recent developments are any indication, Blue, toplining Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Zayed Khan, will soon be in the red. The latest is that director Anthony D’Souza, who’s making his debut as a director with this so-far-no-expenses-spared extensively underwater adventure flick, has been unable to procure more dates from Dutt.
Reason: Dutt feels he has already given extra dates to the movie and it’s not his fault that Anthony bhai couldn’t complete the film. According to a dost of the abhineta-turning-neta, Dutt could have wrapped up another movie in the additional days he’s allotted for Blue.
He empathized with the filmmakers’ and extended his complete cooperation to them. Unfortunately, they’re not reciprocating the cooperation, laments my informer.
Dutt was mighty miffed with them for letting Kumar hog all the limelight during Kylie Minogue’s visit to Mumbai to shoot a song and scenes for the movie.
This only added to his ire over Khiladi Kumar’s reported interference in the making of Blue. Now forget Blue, he’s seeing red! I think I’ll stop here too.
Aha, here comes Madhu my Mottu Maid, with my lopchu.. and an announcement that Abhay Deol is planning to go the Hollywood way.
She claims that whenever he had time off from his metallurgy and weilding classes in New York, Abhay would meet up with various agents to discuss his prospects.
Keeping in mind that Rome wasn’t built in a day, the Deol dude isn’t undeterred that nothing has materialized yet. Mots asserts that he will resume the discussions once he returns to the US later this month.
Hmm, my best wishes to the dude. At least he’s not pretentious like some others who vehemently deny that they’re even remotely trying to get a break in Hollywood. Cheers!
You remember Sonal Chauhan? Yeah, the Jannat girl who refused to kiss Emraan Hashmi in another Bhatt production and is yet to be seen in another film since.
Khair, Miss Chauhan learnt that someone was using her name to run the website, sonalchauhanworld.com and was even selling her pictures on it, she hunted out the brains behind the fraud and sued him.
But before the case could come up for hearing, the offender chickened out and pleaded for an out-of-court settlement. Chalo, badhiya hai. Last heard, Sonal is planning to start her own official website.
But the question is that with no films in her kitty, what is she going to upload on her site? Or shouldn’t I ask?
A jasoos from Juhu called to express his sympathies for producer Ramesh Taurani. Kyun?
Kyunki the nirmata had no one to accompany him for a show of Gulal at PVR on Monday evening.
Bechare Tauraniji was sitting akele-akele, envying those who had come with their partners and friends.
My khabru claims that Tauraniji had a dukhi-dukhi expression on his face when he went to get himself a huge tub of popcorn and an equally large serving of cola to wash it down with.
Such a show off
God help me please! Mottu’s back and is now cribbing about how Rakhi Sawant’s been showing off. Showing off what? See what Mots has done, she’s made me go down double meaning lanes. Anyway, this is a different kind of show off that Mots is
Seems Mottu, who’s in a hurry to shed several not-needed kilos had gone to inquire for membership at Gold’s Gym in Oshiwara, where she stays.
She was pleased with the amenities and was about to enlist for a lifetime membership,when she spotted Rakhi.
The item girl looked like a walking-talking brand store.. arrogantly bragging about her fetish for anything phoren.. from her headband and wristband to her sneakers. She yakked and yakked about how she had an enviable stock of sportswear etc etc.
Bas, aur kya? Mots stormed out vowing never to step into that health club again. For once, I agree with Mots. Kya karun? But then, such is life dearies.
