Get your daily dose of gossips with Honey. She writes on the glamour world and the spicy scandals of Bollywood celebs
Morning my mintolas and mintolis! Dunno why I’m feeling a little under the weather today. I don’t usually feel like this.. could be the Monday morning blues.. oh oh. Must call my masseuse to give me that massage with aromatic oils before I go for my bubble bath. But let me first give you, my dimsums, some taaza khabar of the day.
So listen.. a jasoos from Versova tells me that Bipasha Basu’s momma absolutely dotes on John Abraham. Who wouldn’t?.. he’s such a nice guy, a thorough gentleman and very caring too. A lot of people will vouch for that, I tell ya..
But you know what? Momma Basu also ensures that that whenever Johnny boy visits her, he feels completely at home, in every way possible. Suna hai, when Johnny boy drives over in his dear and precious Audi, Momma Basu insists he doesn’t leave it outside her building.. lest any passer-by (human or vehicle) gets too close to it.
So she asks her driver to park her humble car outside.. letting Johnny boy’s expensive Audi temporarily occupy her parking zone.. since there’s limited space in the compound. Wah wah.. I do love such family bonding.
A party animal friend dropped in to ask me something. Exactly what is the secret behind Kangana Ranaut and her boyfriend Adhyayan Suman’s stamina when it comes to partying?
Reason: He saw Kangy boo and Suman boy hit more than a couple of nightspots across the city recently. And not just once, but quite a few times in the last week.
First on their agenda was Dome at Hotel Intercontinental at Marine Drive. The clock had not even struck 12 when Kangy and Suman zoomed off to Aurus in Juhu. When they felt they had breathed enough Juhu air, after a good hour or so, they headed to Bling, where they burnt the dance floor for another hour.
Phew! I’m already tired listening to their pub-hopping ways. But then, can’t blame them when they have barely a couple of films in hand. Hai na?
Accent by chance
Now Madhu my Mottu maid wants me to hear something about Anil Kapoor. She claims to have heard from a good number of industry folks that Anilji has been speaking with an accent of late.
So what’s wrong with that, I asked her. Nothing, she says, but elaborates that sometimes Anilji talks with an American accent and sometimes British. Silly woman.. she doesn’t say anything when Salman Khan speaks Hindi with an Italian accent, not only off-screen, but on it too.
How does it matter what accent Anilji speaks in.. as long as no one can say Jhakaas even a fraction as well as him?
Work is workshop
Excuse moi while I answer this call on my kaaliberry. Turns out to be Manoj Bajpai, who is upset and has a valid reason.
Seems he was quoted as saying that Rakeysh Mehra cut his role in Aks, when in fact he never said anything even remotely like that. Of course, he’s a thorough professional and has always clarified his stand.
Speaking of which, Madhu my Mottu Maid tells me that Bajpai treats each role with utmost seriousness and sincerity. I’m told when he learnt that his role in Jugaad was based on film producer Sandip Kapoor’s experience, Bajpai adapted his mannerisms, body language and speech when shooting for the movie.
Itna hi nahin, Bajpai had even perfected Kapoor’s moves during a workshop. Enough to imitate the nirmata during their interactions. So much so that his flawless act often left Kapoor flummoxed.. and then they would both burst out laughing. Kya dedicated abhineta hai Manoj bhai, I tell you.
Shaadi No 1
Okay, now this is the classiest wedding invitation I’ve seen in recent memory. Accompanied by a huge platter of assorted mithai like modaks, barfis etc.. the invite is basically in white.. very sophisticated.. considering it comes from the Hindujas and the Mackers, for the shaadi celebrations of Ambika and Raman.
The first of the wedding functions was held at Aurus. The sangeet ceremony will be held at the Marriott Hotel tonight, while the reception will be held on Wednesday at the Turf Club. The couple has chosen to walk the saat pheras on Thursday evening at Param Jamuna, the Hinduja bungalow in Juhu.
Of course, the whole of tinsel town has been invited.. so naturally the Bachchans, Kapoors (Boney, Anil, Sanjay and their families, and also Randhir, Rishi and Rajeev with their parivaars) Aktars, Roshans, Johars, Khans will be attending the first mega wedding of the year. And that’s not all..
My khabru also informs me that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is also expected along with his family. Aha, could it get any grander? After all, such is life dearies.
