Kaho na
birthday hai

Howdy my cupcakes, how are thee? I just had the sneakiest preview of Dostana last evening, Kjo was super enough to send over a print for Vyjjy and me at our private multiplex.

I cuddled V furiously. Vaziran bua, cat Laraboo, Madhu my Mottu Maid, I have had enough of. So they weren’t allowed in.

Neither was my research assitant, Dimwit Mirza, who in any case will be fired very soon.. imagine she wanted to be on the board of my Pigeon Protection organisation called White Weather Co. Such cheek really.

Since I just haaaaad to see Dostana, I had to miss out on Harman Baweja’s 28th birthday (28?) at Priyanka Chopra’s apartment in Versova.Surprisingly, PC’s mom and dad were missing.. maybe they just went out for an evening walk and didn’t want to return to the sosha. Sensible of them, methinks.

So who landed up for the 28th salgirah? Well, if you must know the assembly included Minissha Lamba (not in a bikini), Anusha Dandekar (who she?), Ashish Chowdhry (who he?), Amrita Rao (cutie she is) and the big blue teddy bear (kept out of sight mercifully) from Love Story 5020.. 2505.. 2050.. 0502? I forget yaa.

Cake was rather tasty am told. But you know something? Hrithik Roshan should have been invited. Then Dugs would have got all the birthday wishes, bumps and gifts. Can’t tell the difference between Dugs and Harmu actually.. why don’t they do a double role ya.. something sweet like Kaho Na Puri Halwa Hai?

Haseena Manyata Jaayegi

So Manyata bhabhi was sensible. She didn’t jet off with Sanjay Dutt Uncle to Srinagar for the shoot of Lamha. Bipasha Basu fled from there.. and now the shoot has been shifted to Kulu-Manali. Aunty Manya has already packed her woollens to take off for the hilltown this week. Mufflers, topis, shawls and all.

Ewww, but I do hope Uncle and Aunty Dutt don’t demand a swimming pool in their suite the way they did in Bangkok. They won’t get one.. because the weather bureau says that all the pools, ponds and lakes in Kulu-Manali are currently frozen. No hotel allows barfeela pools, it seems. Sad.

All Greek, just no Latin
When I was in kindergarten school, I’d be told about a certain Meghna Reddy who was a stunning model.. but didn’t want to be in the movies here (her sister Sameera did but that’s another lambiiiii kahani). So, she went off to find fame and modelling fortune in New York.

Anyway, now I hear that she.. Meghna not Sameeraji sillies.. is engaged to be married to a Greek gentleman called Ariel Monis. Ariel? Could he be the heir to a fortune in washing powder? Jo bhi..he’s an artist (who isn’t?) and an estate consultant.

Sameeraji is refuting the talk as rumours. Still my sauces and vinegars say that Meghna and Ariel (not Nirma) have been engaged for about a year now. Marriage is just about six months ago. Okay, whatever, let Dimwit Mirza know. She researches such things.

Jaaye to jaaye kahan?
My heart doth melt when I hear sad stories. Like the one about director Saurabh Kabra (EMI was his first effort). The movie didn’t do well.. and so he was sloshed at a friend’s place. He talked about the effort he had put in and said that he couldn’t go home.. because he had lost his keys somewhere. Neither could he go to his parents’ home, presumably because they saw the movie and wanted nothing more to do with him.

Saurabhji was still at the friend’s house at the time of going to press. Fortunately, the friend hasn’t seen EMI yet.. if he does you know what’ll happen. Bahut dukh hua sun ke.

Feedback to the future
Meanwhile at the Dostana cast and crew show, it seemed all the Bachchans had turned up in full force.. and what do you know? Feedback is that they were very impressed with Abhishek’s performance.

But aren’t they always? Whaaatever. I’m in the middle of my own expensive and exclusive Dostana screening right now. Can’t tell you anything about Abhi or anyone. Main kaun hoti hoon? Baba, I’ve not studied cinema history. I don’t even blog-shlog I’m not one of those critics-vritics types, you know. But then such is life dearies.
