Madhuri Dixit, a typical Indian mother!
Madhuri Dixit attended a wedding reception with her children at the Marriott on Saturday evening. Seeing the hosts waiting to welcome her, she instructed her kids in Marathi to touch their feet and seek their blessings.entertainment Updated: Feb 21, 2009 18:25 IST
Hello hello.. wassup my banana-walnut cupcakes? How goes it in your world? Blame it on the Monday morning blues.. I'm a little under the weather.. so I'll continue lazing around under my gulabi satin sheets.. till Madhu my Mottu Maid serves me some piping hot soup.. black mushroom and asparagus, to make me feel a little more cheerful and chirpy.
Until then, let me start off the day with some khabar on Shah Rukh Khan. Okay, so the entire duniya knows that he's undergoing surgery for his troubled left shoulder at Breach Candy hospital tomorrow. What no one knows is that initially the idea was to conceal the information about date, time and place from the media.
But SRK being SRK, revealed it to the media in all honesty. Itna hi nahin, he also told them to do go about their work peacefully. According to my informer, he requested them to "please be patient and keep your cool. Vahaan pe aur bhi patient honge, so ensure that you don't disturb them in any way."
And if that's not all, he also asked them to maintain the peace outside the hospital gates.. and not to be the cause of traffic jams, lest the people residing around there and passing by are inconvenienced.
Khan, who had gone to London for a carnival, is returning today.. in time to be admitted for his shoulder treatment. Aah, must send him a bouquet with a note wishing him the speediest recovery.
Maa ho to aisi
Apart from my solva saal, another reason why I keep turning down Vyjjy's proposals for marriage is that I've still a long way to go before I can become a mother like Madhuri Dixit.
A jasoos from Juhu dropped by to rave about Mad's motherly ways. She attended a wedding reception with her children at the Marriott on Saturday evening.
When she realised that she had skipped walking through the metal door-frame security check, she apologised and led her bachchas through it.
And seeing the hosts waiting to welcome her, she instructed her kids in Marathi to touch their feet and seek their blessings.
My khabru is maha-impressed that despite staying in the US, Mads is bringing up her children with apni Bhartiya sanskriti. Wah, maa ho to aisi. What say?
Picture perfect, please!
Aha.. just what I've been waiting for. Finally Mottu has brought my soup. One reason why I can't even sack Mottu for good is that she does the right things in the right way at the right time. Hmm.
And now she's raving about Abhishek Bachchan, whom she had gone to meet at R K Studio in Chembur.. where he was promoting Delhi 6. Seeing him drive in, the photographers rushed to shoot his pictures.
I'm told Abhi asked them to wait while he freshened up and changed since he was coming straight from the gym. While everyone obliged, one particular lensman insisted on going clickety click click. Maintaining his cool, Abhi called him and repeated that he would give them enough time for the snaps, so he should delete those he had already clicked. Pleased with the offer, the photographer couldn't refuse.
If only some other stars were as courteous and charming as AB Junior, moaned Mottu.. and went on to crib about those who would first flex their muscles for the snaps, and then for the lensmen. Anyway, Abhi ki baat hi aur hai, no?
When Himesh Reshammiya chose to go for a different, cropped look, he might have not anticipated that he would suffer an identity crisis. That's what he discovered when he went to Cinemax near Andheri's Lokhandwala Complex.
While many may not have given him a second look, one particular guy owned up his confusion and went to the composer-singer-actor, asked, "Are you the real Himesh Reshammiya or just his duplicate?"
Himsy merely smiled and replied, "I'm the original one." It's another thing that HR didn't have to sing there and then to prove his originality.. but he certainly made his fan's day by giving him an autograph.
Chalo, badhiya hai.
Denim ne bana di jodi
Now Mots wants me to hear about Ayesha aka Sangeeta Bijlani and Mohammed Azharuddin's Valentine evening. She was just leaving from PVR in Juhu after a dekko of He's Not Just That Into You with her date when she saw Sangy and Azhar walking in to check out Billu.
Sangy looked stunning in a white shirt over blue denims while Azhar sported a canary yellow T-shirt and equally blue jeans, beams Mottu.
Then as if she remembered something, she tells me that the Govitrikar sisters, Aditi and Aarzoo were sitting behind her in the auditorium. Before she ruins my day with useless info about such chhota-motta types, I shooed Mots away. Kya karoon? But then, such is life dearies.
