Kahani idli ki
Hi oh hi, what’s happening my gorgeouz guyz and dollz? I’m just about fed up with batty Vaziran bua and Madhu my Mottu Maid as well. Don’t even ask about my former research assistant Dimwit Mirza.. she’s history even though she keeps popping up like a needless piece of geography. Just has to squeak on the phone and the world shrivels.
Right now, my senses are incensed with both bua and Mottu because they’ve emptied the fridges in the house.. because they want to lose weight. My figure’s size-zero or thereabouts, but they’re so self-absorbed that they’ve filled the entire house — tiffins, boxes, kitchen drawers and cupboards, shelves and attics — with idli powder, chutney spices and steaming utensils. Really, my house is looking like something out of an Idalian nightmare.
After severe questioning, I have finally detected the reason for their idli obsession. Seems both want to be like
Aishwarya Rai who is not allowing Abhishek to eat anything but idlis while shooting for Mani Ratnam’s Raavan in Kerala.
News of the day is that he didn’t quite relish the idlis served by the hotel where they are staying. So Ashji told the chef the recipe that Abhi likes. No use. Ash had to go to the kitchen and mix the batter herself.. and only then would the idlis meet with Abhi’s approval.
As I write, bua and Mots have placed a mountainful of idlis before my nose, made from various recipes across the world. Yum, the gals do have their uses. I’m gonna try out a Chinese fusion version: Idli Chopstick Suey. Lovely.. soon I’m sure it’ll be available everywhere, from Chandni Chowk to You Know Where. Burp.
Raat aur dine
Wow. This Mots does keep tabs on Himesh Reshammiya.. she even knows what he ate for dinner and with whom and why.
So she’s singing that she caught Himsie bhai dining with TV actress Sonia Kapoor at Hyatt Regency’s Italian restaurant Stax. They came in at 9.30 (in the night.. what did you think?) and left only way after midnight.
But hellooo, a kabab mein haddi popped up and wouldn’t leave.Surprisingly this haddi, Himsie and Sonia stuck to vegetarian food. And the bill came to over Rs 10,000. And what do you know? They were given discount vouchers before they left.. which Himsie must surely preserve.
If Bhushan Kumar sells Himsie’s film at an inflated rate all over again, then those vouchers will come very much in handyzzzz, no?
So criss cross
Aha, I’m told that I’ve finally met my match.. in sheer brilliance.. of the mind that is. Soha Ali Khan is known to solve cryptic crosswords in a flash..and is addicted to crosswords since donkey’s years.
Cool. Last I heard was that she was seeing Kunal Kemmu (on the quiet). Now that’s one puzzle I just can’t solve.
Spotboy ke liye
And it’s even more cool to know that Sanjay Dutt has promised to do a film for his spotboy Sooraj, no matter what!
Huh, does that mean, come politics or the diktats of Manyata Dutt (you can see I’m verrrrry careful to add her
surname), Sanju Uncle will do this film for a guy who has served him for years and years.
Now that’s the only upbeat thing I’ve heard about Uncle in days. I’m gonna read this time and again to believe what I’ve written. Yea!
But so seriously
And Juhi Babbar is also set to make a serious go at her career in theatre and films. You’ve heard that before? Maaf
karna, sweeties, it’s just that there has been some development on this front.
She’s been back in her Juhu-Vile Parle home with her parents for six months now.. meanwhile, ad filmmaker husband Bijoy Nambiar has moved to America.
Chalo, Juhi can make a serious go at her career in theatre and films.. oops did I say that earlier? But then, such is life dearies.
