War of words
Hiya my rose petals, how goes it in your garden? Mine is very pretty and placid right now, even though I get thunderous news all the time which I try to confirm via vivacious Vaziran bua and Madhu my Mottu Maid.. but even these two war horses haven’t been able to get a signed affidavit on this yet. Neigh, neigh, neigh.. they go.
And it’s to do with a mega feud on Monday between big bro Sanjay Dutt and Priya Dutt.. naturally over political issues.
It’s said that Priya pointed out that he has always depended on the family when he is in distress (which has been very often). Now that he isn’t in any crisis, he’s doing his own number.
Shaken by the war of words, Priya couldn’t attend a Republic Day function she was committed to at Juhu.
Indeed, intense talk is circulating that Sanjay Dutt would like sisters Priya and Namrata to be out of Imperial Heights at Pali Hill where they all have different Dutt family apartments on different floors.
Now, now, get this. It seems he even wants to check out the tapes of the interviews given by Priya Dutt to the media in the last fortnight. Oof.
Bobby mil jaaye
Oi.. me is toooo happy for Dev Patel and Freida Pinto. Seems the twosome have become quite coosome and are currently in Los Angeles at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.
My Hollywood snoop even told me that there’s some serious romance brewing between them.. and Freida tends to baby him.
Whenever Dev’s nervous and tense about the awards, Freida’s there, telling him, “Come come, main hoon na!” So chweet.
But the most spot-on quote about the two comes from none other than Anil Kapoor. Referring to the huge interest in Dev-Freida.. and AK too, he ha-ha’s, “Hey, in the west Dev and Freida have become like Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia after Bobby. And I’ve become like Premnath!” Ha!
Luck kiya jaaye
Trust Shah Rukh Khan to get into the whirl right away. As soon as he landed in Mumbai from the L A shoot of My Name is Khan, he was at Film City’s Adlabs for a show organised for him and friends.. of Luck by Chance.
And immediately after the show, late at night, an impromptu party was on at Mannat for Zoya and Farhan Akhtar. Bhavana Pandey, Kaajal Anand and Sanjay Kapoor were there. So was Farah Khan.. who, by the way, refused to talk about Ashutosh Gowariker. Hmmm.
Main bhi hoon.. na?
Now Vaziran bua, who’s quite a trade ki keedi, tells me that Kunal Kemmu (her types) is mighty upset with the producer, director and even the spot boy of some movie called Jai Veeru (great grandsons of Sholay or what?).
And that’s because only Fardeen Khan has been projected in the promos. Funny.. that producer, director, spot boy are.
Do they think Fardeen will get the crowds in or what? Vaziran for once agrees whole-heartedly with Kemmu. Bua is growing old methinks.
Heera hai Heera
More trade chatter from bua. At this rate, she’ll turn into a trade analyst, no? So, anyway, she says that Guzaarish — not the song from Ghajini, but Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie — with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan has been delayed because of unavoidable circumstances.
So Bhansaliji will start with Heera Mandi for which he has an actor and an actress on board from Pakistan.
A replacement is being found for the late Begum Para. And the workshops for the movie are about to start any day.
So much vital info bua is getting me. I should give her a medal. Bronze. But then, such is life dearies.
