Ooh la la la.. Thank God it’s Saturday, that time of the week when I zoom off, away from the shor-sharaba of the city. Never mind if the sun is sizzling outside, for Chomas Took, my travel agent has made thanda thanda cool cool arrangements for me at my weekend getaway on a lakeside hill. Blissola!
But before I keep my eyes on the road and my hands on the wheel, let me share with you some of the spiciest news from glamour gaon. For starters, a jasoos from Juhu dropped by to tell me a funny anecdote about Imran Khan’s attempts to lift Deepika Padukone. Nah, fiancé Avantika Malik need not worry, her man was shooting with the abhinetri for Kunal Kohli’s Break Ke Baad recently…
And a scene required him to lift Deepi. Seems a couple of days before the scene was filmed Padukone apparently told Imran that he wouldn’t be able to carry her weight.
Agreed that Deepika looks a bit taller and heavier than Khan, but that doesn’t mean that she could tease him about not being able to lift her. No? So Imran wanted to prove her wrong by lifting her. But just as he was about to do the needful, Deepi burst out laughing. And if that weren’t enough, she’d laugh each time Imran tried to lift her. Naturally, he got upset and let her be, recalls my khabru.
And wonder of wonders! When Kohli finally filmed the scene, Imran actually lifted Deepika perfectly, much to her surprise and amazement. That too, not once, but a couple of times till nirdeshak Kohli was pleased with the shot.
If you’re thinking how the actor could manage it so well, then my informer claims to know the secret. And the raaz ki baat is that Khan worked hard at the gym for two days, before he shot the scene that required him to lift Deepika.
Chalo, badhiya hai. But I do hope that he continues gymming with as much gusto, so he has no problems even if he has to lift someone like Lara Dutta in a movie. Hai na?
