Not Dutt way..

Wassup my strawberry pies? Vyjjy has sent over his private jet and has been pleading with me to join him in South Africa for the Indian Premiere League that flags off tomorrow. But I refused yet again, because the drama leading to the forthcoming elections seems far more interesting.

Achha listen.. seems all’s not so well in Maanyata bhabhi and Sanjay Dutt’s paradise. And the tremors have been triggered off by Sanju bhai’s statements that he will campaign for behna Priya Dutt in the forthcoming elections.. if she asks him.

Manya bhabhi isn’t too pleased with this display of brotherly affection since she doesn’t exactly get along with her nanand. Now that he’s with the Samajwadi Party, why would he want to campaign for the Congress, she reasons.

Apparently, she voiced her displeasure to her Dutt saab, as she calls him, and requested him to reconsider before coming out in open support of Priyaji. Bas, aur kya? Baba told her that he knows best.. and she should stick to the kitchen and making kebabs instead of questioning his decisions. Phew!

Of course, all this tu tu main main happened behind closed doors.. but my informer managed to listen in.

Ab dekhte hain, aage aage kya hota hai kya?

Hot therapy
For those who’re are still interested in the life and times of Manisha Koirala, here’s a tiddy bitty on my mamma’s once-upon-a-time favourite actress.

At long last she has decided to go slow on the sprits. Now, it’s just a glass of red wine.. aur woh bhi just once in a while.

Now that’s healthy!

What’s more, she’s hooked on to Heat Yoga or something such, which is all about doing asanas in a closed room where the temperature is set at 45 degrees.

Satyajit Chaurasia, who helped Aamir Khan build his famous eight-packs for Ghajini, is now helping Koirala shed her excess kilos. Chalo, better late than never, hai na?

Golden girl
Guess who’s the newest gift horse in tinsel town, wonders my Rapchik Rajni. I’m not interested in silly guessing games, so she mumbles, Arbaaz Khan. Yawn da yawn!

A saheli told her about how Arboo surprised her with a beautifully wrapped present during the shooting of Prem – The Game in Karnataka some time back. She later learnt that everyone in the unit had got a tohfa from him. than Arboo.

Kyun? Just like that, the unitwali was told. Of course, everyone was thrilled with their perfect presents. Needless to say that the best one was for biwi Malaika Arora.

Arboo had purchased exotic gold jewellery for her. So the next time you see Malaika loaded down with gold, you’ll know where it came from. So no speculations meanies.

It’s time for my lopchu but there’s no sign of Madhu my Mottu Maid. Excuse me while I answer this call on my kaaliberry. Turns out to be Mottu, speaking from Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri. Before I can ask, she tells me that she’s visiting Neetu Chandra, who got herself admitted there yesterday morning.

Seems Neetu had hurt herself while playing basketball last week, but chose to ignore it. It wasn’t until Tuesday evening, when a sharp pain brought her workout to an abrupt end and she decided to take it seriously.

When the dukh-dard didn’t subside, she checked into the hospital and got a x-ray done. She was told that she’d suffered a hairline fracture in her rib and needs to rest.

But Neetu had to get herself discharged later in the afternoon.. since she HAD TO shoot for Jagmohan Mundra’s film because her co-actor Anupam Kher didn’t have another date in the near future to spare. Really, some people just won’t take a chill pill, I tell you.

Prison diaries anyone?
Oi oi.. A kauwa from Karjat has just dropped by to give me some khabar that is not likely to make Jahaan Panaah Ashutosh Gowariker’s day.

Point is that his – Gowariker’s not kauwa’s sillies – set of the Amer fort in N D Studio is not the way he had left it after completing Jodhaa Akbar.

Although he had told Nitin Desai to let it remain as a tourist spot, Madhur Bhandarkar had turned the qila into a jail for his next film and is making alterations everyday.

Crow says I shouldn’t be surprised if Gowariker accuses Bhandarkar of damaging his fort.

Oof, does it look like I care? But then, such is life dearies.
