Oh.. I’m just not in the mood to wish anyone good morning and hello-howdee-do today. Reason: well.. I’ve been hearing foul cries about my super efficient mulazims.. Rapchik Rajni and Madhu my Mottu Maid.. from everyone in town.. my kaaliberry is still ringing and I don’t want to attend to those lousy.. full of complaint SMSs.
It seems they’ve been showing extra affection to some highly unwanted fellas in town and supplying me tidbits lifted from them. So, I’ve had to take the first flight out from Greece and be here. I’m gonna surely take some action. But right now, I’m tired and still working.. something I so don’t want to do when I’m jet-lagged. But with such ‘efficiency’ around, I have to slog. Oof.
And what do I get to hear when I get back? Something about my dearest Salman Khan which makes my heart sob. Poor guy. He’s brought sunshine to the lives of so many.. even the women in his life who don’t care two hoots about him. I’m told.. by some reliable khabrus.. not the mulazims I have.. that the doll-like Katrina Kaif is acting too big for her boots with Sallu.. someone who’s lifted her standards professionally. Apparently, Kat’s air-laden behaviour upset Sallu so much at Amrita Arora’s Aurus bash that he simply left the do. No salaams and duas there.. so unlike him.
My dear Sallu was enjoying his drinks at the do. He had a peg and followed it with some more. Kats warned Sallu not to drink too much.. she thinks he doesn’t know how much to drink. Huh? Methinks success has hit Kat’s head too badly. Someone just tell the high flier that she still has a long way to go.. in the acting department at least.
Leave of absence
Awww. I have this super soft corner for my Chhote Nawab Saif Ali Khan. He’s such a darling.. not seen too many like him around. Now, some director called Imtiaz Ali, who’s been hired to direct Nawab sahib’s first home production, has been holidaying a bit too much for comfort.
I’m told it has been nearly two months that the team shot for the movie. They completed the north shoot and ever since then directorji has been on a never-ending chhuti of sorts.. but wait.. he’s still in town. Is that what we call a vacation?
At least not in mine and Nawab’s lingo. My poor Saifu.. whenever he buzzes the director for the next schedule.. the director tells him to wait for some reason best known to him. And we thought producers and actors threw tantrums. Ouch!
Dudes and gals.. do you’ll remember the tall and hot model-turned-actress Dipannita Sharma? Yes.. she’s the same pretty face who debuted in 16 December with Milind Soman (errr.. whatever) and then featured on Khatron ke Khiladi.
My li’l birdie chirps that the girl is looking fit and fine.. in just the best shape ever.. maybe even better than Kareena Kapoor’s (???).
She’s now ready to enter B-town again. Girlie… this time it’d better be with a bang.. haan!
As per schedule..
I’m anyway very upset with Madhu Mottu. And with this piece of news, I’ve decided I’m gonna sack her.. no notice and no three-month salary.
Moti deserves the treatment for believing the trade sorts. She can’t help it sometimes. She told me that Boney Kapoor was upset with Salman Khan because the actor wants to release Veer before Wanted Dead or Alive. Boneyji rang me up this morning. He denies the news. He’s threatening to prove everyone, who’s spreading these sickening rumours about his much-talked-about project and the delay in its release, wrong. But I’ve told him to lie low for now and blast the trade and the fake-trade kinds when the film releases on July 3.
It’s my time
Okay.. the hard-working Nikhil Dwivedi is a happy man these days. He’s shooting in Kolkata with Abhishek Bachchan and his wife Aishwarya. And well, they’re having a good time.
Now, the boy is going places.. he’s signed a film which Revathy S Varma will direct.. and it will feature granny-o Jaya Bachchan.
I don’t know if Dwivedi really wants to get up, close and personal with the Bachchans. But I’m told that the naya navela ambitious actor has been expressing his wish on Mani Sir’s sets to work with Bachchan Sr too. But then such is life dearies.
