Morning my mushy mushroom quiches! Don’t ask me about the ongoing Indian Premiere League.. I’m bored already.. The teams I initially rooted for, have been falling like nine pins. Anyways, enough about these wicked wicket ways. There’s a lot more interesting news happening in apni movie nagariya, I tell you.
For starters, a birdie specialising in trade gossip stopped by to tell me about a closed door meeting held some days ago between the producers-distributors and multiplex owners that turned into a heated discussion thanks to Aamir Khan.
Yeah, I know AK’s currently holidaying with biwi Kiran and bachchas, Junaid and Ira, in the U S.. this kissa happened before he left for his vacation.
According to my parinda, Khan took off on a particular theatre owner who also has an interest in the real estate sector. I’m told the actor-filmmaker made one two many unsavoury remarks about the high-handedness with which the multiplexwalas were doing business. He was told to refrain from going overboard but Aamir would have none of it, informs my khabru. Apparently, he went to the extent of saying that they were no different from goondas who indulge in goondagardi at the drop of the hat.
Bas, aur kya.. the owner of the multiplex chain at whom this remark was directed, had enough of Khan’s khunnas and staged a walkout.
Consequently, the meeting was adjourned.. and the stand-off continues. Now, knowing Aamir as well as I do, I don’t believe the kahani even though my birdie swears by it. I’ll just wait for Aamir to get back and question him about this.
Hot, hot, hot
Hmm, here comes Madhu my Mottu Maid with my Ethiopian kawah.. and a request for a salary advance. Huh? She tells me that something for which she had never planned has suddenly come up.
A little probing and Mots reveals her fascination with Hot Yoga. She reminds me that Manisha Koirala has been practising it regularly and the result is showing in her shapely figure.
Now, the sensational sisters, Riya and Raima Sen, are kicked out about it.. and have taken to it like fish to water, exults Motti. In fact, the two sisters have even been recommending its virtues to very Tom, Dick and sundry. And now Mots wants to cash in on it. Silly girl!
Looks like Emraan Hashmi is in a relaxing mode ever since Percept Picture Company chose to dillydally over the remaining item song still to be shot for their film Raftaar 24 x 7.
He has chosen to party the nights away. Over the weekend, Emmy, along with biwi Parveen and some close friends let their hair down at Aurus. My jasoos from Juhu, who’s a regular at the nightspot, tells me they were there till the wee hours. Take a chill pill.. and let Emmy take one too.
Oi oi.. not only does he exist, but when it suits him, he can be a warm and friendly too.
I’m talking about Aditya Chopra, who had shunned the media since Mohabbatein. Love’s labour lost or what? Anyway, a couple of days ago, a bunch of friendly photographers spotted Adi bhai sauntering into the Marriott hotel and wished him a Hi and Hello.
And surprise, surprise, he returned the greeting with a wave and a smile. So unlike the time he had dashed off at the sight off their cameras when he was at the PVR multiplex in Juhu checking out a new release some months ago.
Before you wonder what brought about the change in Adi bhai, no, Rani Mukherji was nowhere around. So he had no ulterior purpose to be friendly. Tsk tsk!
Mottu’s back.. with an item on Neetu Chandra’s brother Abhishek. Really now!
Seems, after getting his degree in Delhi, Abhi has came to Mumbai to pursue his MBA.. and had rather diligently enquired about how to go about getting admission to the city’s best management institute.
But somewhere along the way, he felt that since didi was an actress, he should follow in her footsteps. So now he’s decided to get himself enrolled in an acting institute instead.
Mottu tells me that television is a strict no no for this Abhishek.. he’s requested Neetu didi to put in a word for him to Ram Gopal
Varma, in whose Rann she’s working aaj kal. Oh brother! Does it look like I care about these chote mote types? But then, such is life dearies.
