ShilpaA new Soni Mahiwal?

Fresh news of the day is that all may not be exactly hunky dory in the world of Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra. My sauces (tomato, chilli, soya) tell me that Raj K is away in cold, cold London. And there’s a new friend called Soni (hers, not Raj’s sillies) who frequently drops by at the Shetty residence in Versova.

This Mr Soni is super-rich goes the story. And so, Shilpaji and he must surely be having meetings on how to deal with the global meltdown types. I just hope Raj K is okay about this. After all, he quit his wife and kids to be with the girl with the hour-glass figure. Oh well, unpredictable are the ways of the heart. Ask me.. I just can’t let go off Vyjjy even though he’s been away in London for weeks. No one cuddles quite like him.. sob!

Ranbir KapoorJab they munched

Oi. These dudes are getting soo serious about their two-in-one project. It has to be a romantic comedy it seems, and like everyone they want it to be on the lines of Andaz Apna Apna.. oof let an original be, no?

Now the story is that on Friday, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan came together for a gupt lunch meeting with Imitiaz Ali at the Otters Club. This meeting was over lunch at 1 pm and ended around 4:30 pm.

Here are minutes of the meeting according to my Agent Vinod in the Otters Club. One, Imtiaz bhai will first finish Saif Ali Khan’s film (naturally, then what!). Second, meanwhile Ranboo and Imran will brainstorm and come up with an appropriate subject (romanchak comedychak). And last and also the least, Imtiaz bhai will develop the script.

Is this what filmmaking is about these days? By the way in this item, the cook at Otters deserves a special mention, the lunch was delicious.

Maska maar ke
Oho. See what Ghajini has started. Once it was just Boney Kapoor and Priyadarshan (without each other) but after Aamir Khan also went the south route, more are following in his elevator-shoe steps (elevator means, Khan sir often wears heels inside the shoes.. try that.. it’s possible).

Aiyyo, I lost the plot because of those shoes. To return to the news, our beloved Akshay Kumar is also looking southwards. Akshayji has asked producer Ratan Jain (who wears superb suits) to get the rights of the huge Telugu hit called Maska (I’m not translating that.. eee) which has Ram, Hanssika Motwani and Sheela in the lead. It’s supposed to be an action comedy and will be shot everywhere except in China. Don’t ask me why.

Gaadi galoz
Mottu says there was a time when Ram Gopal Varma’s chauffeur Ashok was the Big Boss of show biz.. and should have started an union to protect the rights of the driving staffers of filmmakers.

Ashok the Great didn’t. And so Shekhar Kapur’s driver who was fed up of waiting for hours and hours and hours while his master went off for dinners, meetings and lunches, just couldn’t take it any more. He put in his papers and so Shekhar saab is now driving his own Mercedes-Benz through Mumbai traffic. Horn Ok Please?

Just see, Vaziran who’s been goofing off with her Non Resident Nawab has finally woken up to get me a news item.. and it’s this. Arpita Khan and Nihar Pandya of Deepu Padukone fame are dating each other. Really bua should mind her own business, no? But then such is life dearies.
