Aankhon aakhon mein
Howdee doo hoo my plum cakes! How goes it in your world?
Mine is full of fireworks. I returned from my holiday in Greece a little ahead of schedule and found Madhu my Mottu Maid and Rapchik Rajni have been up to all kinds of badmaashi in my absence. I’ve just given them the tongue lashing of their life. Anyway, enough about moi and my garma garam gussa.. I’ve more sizzling things to tell you about.
Like Priyanka Chopra’s dosti with Shahid Kapur. A jasoos spotted the two Kameenay stars (they’re acting together in a movie titled thus) at Aurus, a nightspot in Juhu, on Friday night.
My khabru sniffed around a bit and learnt that they had sauntered in, hand-in-hand, at around 11 p m and headed for the furthermost corner table available.
Seems they had eyes only for each other the two hours that they were together. And if their body language was anything to go by, the twosome looked like they more than ‘just good friends’. Hmm.
So what happens to Harman Baweja, you might ask. Well, I told you a couple of weeks ago that Pranks and Harman had mutually agreed to part.. but had chosen to keep their split under wraps till the release of What’s Your Raashee? since Harman is banking on it to salvage his fast sinking career.
In that case, I must say that Chopra’s pub-hopping with Shahi has only blown the lid off her supposedly secret breakup with the Baweja boy. Tsk tsk.
Excuse me while I make a note in my already full date diary. As soon as I get some time off, I must go gift shopping for my chahiti Kareena Kapoor.
Of late, she’s been pretty preoccupied decorating her new home in Khar’s Rose Queen Apts.. more so after mom Babita had the house-warming ceremony of her part of the apartment recently.
Bebo is putting the last minute finishing touches to her new pad. And mamma is helping her out having opted out of all social gatherings for the time being till beti has a proper griha pravesh.
I’m also informed that Bebo and Saif Ali Khan are planning a badhiya house-warming party to which everyone will be invited.
To market, market, I have to run.
Don’t talk about her
A birdy from Hyderabad has just dropped by with a tiddy bitty on Pam Chopraji. Seems she was invited for a seminar there and the organisers wanted her to interact with the panelists.
Now Pam Aunty didn’t have a problem with that but, I’m told, she put down one condition. None of the panelists could ask her anything about Rani Mukherji. Itna hi nahin, she also reiterated that no one should even mention her name.. Rani Mujherji’s, not Pam Aunty’s sillies.
Do I smell saas-bahu problems already.. and this even before the sagai.
Main chup rahunga
I always thought that Ayaan Ali Bangash was the coolest dude,” says my Sandra from Bandra. So what made him fume suddenly? Apparently, Ayaan was at Café Basilico with a couple of friends but didn’t speak a word.
When his dosts asked him what the matter was, he maintained that he was just not in the mood to talk. After a prolonged silence, it was time to place the order. But Ayaan wasn’t in the mood to eat. So his friends reluctantly ordered something for themselves.
Some more khamosh minutes later, before his friends’ order could arrive, Ayaan called for a chicken Caesar’s salad. Luckily for the restaurant staff, Ayaan was his usual polite self with them.
Sandra claims she left before his salad arrived.. coz she couldn’t bear the thought of him attacking it in anger. Really now! What have I returned to? Kissa gussa ka and salad days.. really now!
What’s with this zaalim zamana my dahlings? Now I’m getting sandeshas on my kaaliberry about the likes of Bappa Lahiri and Karishma Tanna. Must be Mottu up to her usual chhota chhota bites. Who are they please? I’m told he’s Bappi Lahiri’s son and she’s a television actress aspiring to make it big in the movies.
My messenger tells me that Karishma has got back with Bappa after breaking up with him briefly. On Sunday evening, she sauntered into a party at Hotel Sea Princess in Juhu, arm-in-arm with Bappa.
Not surprising, says my informer, considering that she went all around town talking about how alone and lonely and all that blah, blah, blah she was feeling after they split. Does it look like I care about these little known lovebirds! But then, such is life dearies.
