Shaadi.. coming up
How dee doo hoo my dahlias? I just don’t have the time to do any khit pit with Vaziran bua who’s threatening to host a post-Diwali bash for Akshay Kumar. Like it was Akshay’s first party (better late than never, na?), it’ll be bua’s first mehfil complete with qawwalis, cabarets and daredevil stunts. Bua wants to personally jump into a Film City pond, and not even use a duplicate.
All this for a script she’s doing called Bua is Beggum (super-hot in the trade) and another one titled Chandni Chalk to Chunabhatti. She’s gone off her rockers truly.
So without much more buagiri, let me get to the hard news of the day. I’ve just been informed of a big time wedding that has been scheduled for the next weekend. Some are saying it’ll be in a distant weekend. I don’t care which weekend it is actually.
It’ll be an alliance between show biz and politics. According to the buzz vine, Pooja Shetty, daughter of the Adlabs founder, Manmohan Shetty, is sure to exchange wedding vows with MP Milind Deora, son of netaji Murli Deora. Sooner, very sooner. Later, maybe later.
It’s no secret that Pooja and Milind have been seeing each other for over a year now.. and their parivaars have been pretty okey-dokey about this.
Although both the families are trying to keep the maybe soon-maybe-later wedding low-key so far, talk about a series of functions is intensifying. I’m also told that Milind hosted a party at his Peddar Road residence on Wednesday night for Pooja’s pals and gals. Aah, I do love such wedding stories, be it kal, parso or tarso.
I’m feeling so inspired actually that I might just start a company called Madlabs, it’ll be too funky.. just like me.
Me, me.. only me
Oi, Aamir Khan now wants everyone to be hush-hush about Ghajini. He has sent this chup-raho message to all and sundry (even I got an sms, if you please). He insists that only he and he alone will be the movie’s spokesperson during its promotion.
Hey, but what about Jiah Khan and Asin?.. aren’t they in the movie too? And, can’t they speak too?
Jo bhi hai, only Uncle Aamir was present at the ‘first look’ function of this Ghajini (which I hope isn’t copied from Gaj Ghamini).
Jiah and Asin as well as the official director, A Murugadoss, were conspicuous by their absence. So predictable, no?
Tu wahan, main yahan
As soon as Boney Kapoor lands on Mumbai soil from his travels, I will go and celebrate a belated Diwali with him.
Seems our BK was cooling his heels in New Zealand, waiting and waiting for Salman Khan to fetch up for the shooting of the kabhi-complete-hogi-yaar? Wanted: Dead and Alive.
Salluji was scheduled to fly to NZ straight from London.. but didn’t. Instead, he landed in Mumbai to celebrate Diwali with the family. Ab Boneyji ka kya hoga, pyaare?
Ma ma karte
Uh huh, I was kinda missing her. I mean I see her pix on Page 30 parties. Hey what about some acting-shacting though? But nooo.. at the last minute, Poonam Dhillon backed out of the movie being produced by Sanjay Kapoor (still a newcomer, it seems). She was supposed to play the biwi of Nana Patekar and mom of Harman Baweja.
Perhaps realising that a combo of Nana-Poonam couldn’t possibly be the biological parents of Harman, she said thank-you-but-no-thank-you.
Back to the bhavishya
Hey, and you know what? I’m so thrilled that I collided into Neha (of Kareeb) in Cape Town, the other evening. I never say this about other girls except Madhu my Mottu Maid occasionally, but Neha was looking wowee.
She.. Neha, not Mottu sillies.. is returning to the movies with Alibaug and a cameo in Acid Factory, which also features husbandji, Manoj Bajpai.
According to Mots, she can make chhuti of simpering, no-talent heroines like Dia Mirza instantly. But then, such is life dearies.
