Ek nayee kahani

Hi hi hi my currant buns, I have to be brisk today. Which is why I don’t have a minute to spare to grumble about my research assistant Dimwit Mirza (she’s becoming fatter than Madhu my Mottu Maid) or about Vaziran bua who’s eating tambaku paans nowadays.. ewww. And my cat Laraboo who keeps running away for deep-sea diving or some such, or maybe to see if anyone in the world went to see big bore Dino Morea in a murder mystery. His performance is murder, the rest is mystery.

Anyway forget all that. Get this. Our Dia Mirza actually has a new man in her life.. which is why I’m even bringing her up. Eeeee and all that. So, this naya guy is one Saahil Sangha, former assistant to director Nikhil Advani (who that, please?). Anyway, our Saahil bhai went to narrate a script to Diaji.. and thunder, lightning, bhoochal.. she approved of the script as well as its narrator.. and intends to piece the project together for him.

Now that may well happen when young Saahil celebrates his 50th or 60th birthday. Phir bhi, whatever, hope he knows what he’s getting into. And please, will anyone actually go to see a Diaji movie? Don’t make me laugh, please. Ha, ha, ha, ha, haw, haw, can’t stop, excuse me for a min-min.

Ek doosron ke liye
Yeah, so Inder Kumar got married the second time around last week to a homely Punjabi girl at Malad, a match approved by both their families.

Think Inder (not Indra the director) wanted to get married before his former pyaar-ishq-mohabbatni Eesha Koppikkar (Eshha Khopkhaaar.. oof I’m not even going there) became Mrs Timmy Narang. Actually, I quite like Eeeasha (Eeesha?), she’s an underrated actress. I’d even booked tickets for something called Shrubbery but it never showed up.

Okay, Eesha (Eashaoo) becomes Mrs Narang in March-April. And will take to interior designing and start a sports clothing line. And will act only if she gets good roles, scripts and all that. Shudder. I just hope Ram Gopal doesn’t plan a Shrubbery 2. He’s like that only.

Late late night
Well, well. I don’t think they’ve become as familiar as Aarti and Kailash Surendranath at those first night screenings. In fact, they do keep away from all the sosha parties and movieland functions, soirees and what-suffer-you.

On the other hand, whether it’s an animation, sci-fi, comedy, dramedy or just a plain Hollywood movie, Imran Khan and Avantika Mallik are out there at the premieres, looking very lovey-dovey. But you know what, with all those late late night shows, they should grab some beauty sleep, no? Or is Imran not doing that for his look in Delhi Belly or whatever. Really, what is this look thing? Whatever happened to that good ole thing called acting? Siiiigh.

Another baal game
Aha. I do love eccentricities, kinks and loyalties. And Irrfan Khan seems to have all of these qualities by the truckload. Since he’s also heavily into the let-me-get-a-deadly-look-thing, he’s experimenting with his hair style all the time.

Only his stylist is no designer hair snipper. No Adhuna’s sciccors for him. It’s his old barber at Bhayander who still gets Irrfan’s look into place. No wonder I rather like Irrfy. Love these guys who don’t forget their roots unlike half of show biz. Ooof.

Hey but think Irrfy found his match in Payal Rohatgi. Both broke into a movie item number recently. And no one could tell which one of them was the item and which the number. Sad.

Wednesday juniors
Aha. Efforts were on by Manmohan Shetty to cast Imaad Shah with Sikandar Kher. The sons of A Wednesday, so to speak. These young dudes would be pitched against each other, the way dads Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher were.

But you know what? Both Imaad and Sikku didn’t get into this Jawani ki Wednesday. Sikku’s on but not Imaad. But then such is life dearies.
