Heroine wanted
Hey ho my honey-fried noodles! How are you coping with the rising temperature? I’m planning to jet off to the Swiss Alps because the heat is getting unbearable with every passing day. And Vyjjy’s been pleading on bended knees. I just have to tear myself away from my kaaliberry and khabrus which is kinda difficult because they have been flooding me with sizzling tiddy bitties.

Anyway, remember Prashant Chadda? The director of Aap Ka Suroor.. The Real Movie or some such which unleashed Himesh Reshammiya’s acting aspirations.Deepika

Anyway, point is that he.. Prashant, not Himesh sillies.. wanted to launch Deepika Padukone as an actress.. after she featured in the music video with HR. Yeh aur baat hai that she made a more impactful entry with Om Shanti Om, opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

So, Deepika na sahi, uska boyfriend hi sahi, so thought Chaddaji. No we’re not talking about Deepi’s current beau Ranbir Kapoor but ex–steady Nihar Pandya. The scion of a diamond parivaar is pretty keen to light up the marquee and has been networking for an appropriate debut.

According to my trade khabru, Chadda believed that the Pandya lad was apt to play the lead in his next movie.. and met him for a script narration. One doesn’t need to be an Einstein to figure out that the wannabe actor loved the script.. and committed his dates without a second thought.

And now that he’s found his hero, Chadda is looking for a nayikaa. If he could only get the nod from Deepi it would be the casting coup of the year.

But I’m pretty sure Ranboo would veto the idea. Sigh! Why can’t be just love.. and let live?

Ooof! Looks as if I’m being flooded with an overdose of information on the Priyanka Chopra-Shahid Kapoor love story.

At the rate at which they’ve been spending airtime on their mobiles, they could very well buy the service provider in partnership, remarks Rapchik Rajni.

Seems every time one of them gets a couple of minutes off, the other’s number is speed-dialled.. and then Shahi and Priyanks are busy whispering sweet nothings into ek doosre ke ears.

Itna hi nahin.. Shahi not only calls her when he’s working out at his akhada.. but also when she’s running on the treadmill. What’s the hurry, man?

Daddy’s boy
We’ve heard of youngsters wanting to buildup a physique like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Aamir Khan, etc.. But Adhyayan Suman is more inspired by papa Shekhar Suman, who has been pumping iron religiously to build himself an impressive pack of abs.

So Suman junior has hired the services of a certain Craig Scott and categorically told that he wants a body like Suman Senior.. nothing more, nothing less. Daddy’s boy, huh?

And to ensure that he isn’t disturbed in the middle of his kasratbaazi, Adhyayan has enrolled at Elixir in Andheri.. because it’s open till about 4 am and he can workout there after the other members have left.

Now who would notice Adhyayan anyway even if the place was full? Or shouldn’t I ask?

Pet fancies
Aaw, this one is making me real senti. Seems Salman Khan was really cut up over the untimely demise of Myson, his pet French Bullmastiff.

More so since his other pet, Myjaan, was also feeling rather akela-akela without his buddy.

Suna hai, Sallu recentlygot not one, but two little bull mastiffs to make up for Myson’s loss. My Sandra from Bandra tells me that it didn’t take Myjaan much time to get friendly with the two new jaans.

And Sallu is smiling again. Now, isn’t that a heart-warming story?

Cranky pranky
For a change, Madhu my Mottu Maid is cribbing about her chhota motta types. Remember Payal Rohatgi? Yeah, Rahul Mahajan’s ‘good friend’ who stayed at his Worli home for a few days till the renovation at her own abode was complete, so she would move back in.

Haan, so she got over a dozen threat calls on Wednesday. Hearing the kinds of things the callers were threatening he with, she freaked out and consulted her family and close friends.. and late that afternoon decided to lodge a police complaint.

But just as she was leaving home, her friends revealed that they were playing an April Fool prank on her.. and even her brother and parents were in the loop. Really now! But then, such is life dearies.
