Paanch ka dum
Morning my mushroom quiches! Since the crack of dawn, I’ve been bombarded with calls from Vyjjy. He’s bought an island in the Pacific and is insisting I, his eternal lucky mascot, should be the first to land there. If that’s not enough, he’s also threatening to produce a movie and wants me to do a cameo.
Now I don’t have any problems with visiting his island but I’m not going to step in front of the camera for any Tom, Dick, Harry or even Vyjjy. No way! I told him to approach Katrina Kaif instead. After all, for most producers, she’s the lucky mascot whose fleeting presence can make a movie a surefire hit.
Talking of luck and all that, I’ve just been informed that Kangana Ranaut has developed a superstition for the number five. Suddenly, she wants everything which is connected to her to revolve around paanch.
Producers and directors get a jolt from the blue, if the date doesn’t add up, she suggests they meet on the fifth day of the week, at 5 am or 5 pm, for five minutes etc etc. And if the filmmakers protest saying that would be late, Kangy starts making calculations again.
The only person who’s exempt for five ka funda is beau Adhyayan Suman. Can’t blame her really.
Kangy boo does seem need help with calculations, na? And it’s not like Adhyayan is way to busy doing with too many movies that he doesn’t have the time for maths. So over to more additions and calculations.
Aa gym karen zara
Alrite, we do know that most of our movie stars are particular about fitness but not everyone would go that extra mile.
One of those who do it is Bipasha Basu.. she ensures that even when she’s away on outdoor shoots, she doesn’t miss her gym.
Apparently, she first sends a member of her staff to check if the hotel where she’s going to stay and ensure that there’s a state-of-art health club in the premises. Then, if required, this staff member sets up a treadmill and elliptical in Bipsy baby’s suite.. so she can start working out as soon as she’s settled in.
Aha, now we know the secret behind her looking a trillion dollars, always.
Love’s labour lost
These two could well be the Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja of the small screen. I’m talking about Anita Hassanandani and Eijaz Khan. Yeh aur baat hai ki they’re still trying to make it big on the bada parda. But that’s besides the point.
Right now, Anita and Eijaz have called their relationship off yet again. It happened at a party in the suburbs recently when baaton baaton mein the couple got into a major tu tu main main. A lot of bitter bitter words were exchanged.
Bas, aur kya? Since the heated jhagda showed no signs of cooling off, Eijaz stormed out in a huff. After a few minutes, Anita followed, predictably. Last heard, Anita and Eijaz haven’t spoken to each other ever since. Good, silence is always welcome between couples who can’t make up their minds.
Don’t wanna partner
Oi oi.. Madhu my Mottu Maid is back in my life or so it seems. I’ve just got a text message from her, claiming that all’s not well between Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Ronnie Screwwala.
Kyun? Kyunki the head honcho of UTV is not too happy with the way their recent collaboration, Delhi 6, toplining Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor, fared at the ticket widows. Seems, the corporate production house now isn’t too keen on continuing their association for another movie in future.
According to Mots, UTV has conveyed its plans to dissolve their multi-movie deal with Mehra.. before any more of their crores are dissolved. Tsk, tsk!
On a clubbing spree
Oof! Now I’m getting mails about Rahul Dev. Ab yeh kaun? I’m told he’s a model-turned-actor specialising in character roles and will be next seen in Aa Dekhen Zara, toplining Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bipasha Basu.
Still doesn’t ring any bells. Anyway, I’m informed that he’s expanding his business. Huh? He started a health club called Breath Gym in the capital some time ago and is now looking for space for branches in Mumbai and Hyderabad.
Yawn da yawn! Does it look like I care even if this Rahul Dev opens a health club in Timbaktu or Jhumritalaiya? But kya karoon? After all, such is life dearies.
