Cut it out
Howdee doo hoo my Kiwi cheesecakes! How goes it in your world? I’m back to lazing about in my boudoir.. after checking out some luxury villas in Mexico. You know my beau Vyjjy will never buy any property until I’ve checked it out. He’s kinda superstitious about it. Anyways, enough about us.. since I’ve some really garma garam gup shup for you today.
Let me begin with the sensational Sushmita Sen. Seems her list of problems with Karma and Holi doesn’t end. Yeah, it was called Karma Confessions and Holi earlier, and no, the confessional part wasn’t edited at Sush’s behest.
Anyway, point is that Sush now wants her liplock with Randeep Hooda to be deleted from the final cut. And that’s not all. She also wants the producers and director to edit an intimate bedroom sequence shot with them.. her and Hooda, not the producers and director sillies.
Kyun? Kyunki I’m told she feels that such scenes don’t show an Indian woman in good light, instead they draw unwarranted attention and rake up unwanted controversies. It’s another thing that she didn’t have any problems shooting these scenes while she was in a relationship with Hooda. Really now!
Last heard, Sush has given an ultimatum to the nirmatas and the nirdeshak.. that unless they cut out her liplock and the intimate scenes, she won’t promote the film.
All this, after refusing to participate in promotional events with Hooda. Wonder what tantrum is she gonna throw up next.
Chhaiya chhaiya time?
Alrighto.. here’s another incident to further re-affirm that the panga between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan doesn’t extend to their families.
I’ve just been informed that Malaika Arora has been roped in to be a celebrity judge on Knights and Angels, the television dance show produced by SRK’s company to select cheerleaders for his IPL team.
I’m also told that in one of the episodes, Malaika will dance with the contestants. Now now, that’s a bit too much for the participants, no?
Considering Malaika’s hippy hippy shake shake will give them a major complex. You may think I’m digressing from the SK-SRK tiff.. but then, isn’t that ancient history now? Tsk tsk.
Reshoot kiya jaaye
For a title like Shortkut, the movie is taking a bit too long. A jasoos in the industry tells me that director Neeraj Vora is reshooting certain scenes at the behest of Akshaye Khanna in his desi version of the Hollywood comedy, Bowfinger.
Reason: he’s not too happy with some portions where Arshad Warsi is mouthing funny lines while he speaks his dialogue with a straight face.
Can’t blame him since Warsi is replaying Eddie Murphy’s role while Khanna is stepping into Steve Martin’s shoes.
Apparently, Akshoo wasn’t too pleased as he felt there weren’t too many light-hearted moments for his character and wants to add some more fun to it.
Now now, I just hope Amrita Rao doesn’t expect her role to be increased next. Ooooof!
Scaling new highs
The world might change overnight, but Madhu my Mottu Maid will always have her twenty-two bits on the chhota motta types of tinsel town.
Like now she’s pakaoing me about Ranvir Shorey and his rangeen raatein.
Mottu says that she was just about to bite into her dessert at China House when Shorey staggered in at 1 am, soaring in high spirits.
The actor was supported by his pal, who was equally sozzled and barely able to walk two steps straight.
The two didn’t care about their drunken state and headed directly to the bar.. and ordered another round of drinks. Mots wants to tell me more about their slurred talk, but I’m just not interested. Does it look like I care about the likes of Ranvir Shorey?
Wheel of misfortune
Oh no! Now Mottu is raving about Rajneish Duggal’s driving skills. Nah, he’s not into Formula One and all that, but he avoided a mishap while filming a scene for Phir in London recently.
A scene required him to drive with Roshni Chopra by his side, but snowfall had caused the roads to become slippery. Consequently the car was slipping out of control.
Thankfully, before they could drive into the unit and the set-up, Duggal managed to turn in the nick of time and slam on the brakes, bringing the car to a halt.
Of course, everybody around rushed to pat his back for averting a disaster. Yawn da yawn! But then, such is life dearies.
