Chhuti chhuti baatein

Hi my munchies crunchies. If it’s supposed to be winter, the temperatures aren’t keeping in pace, are they? Must send off an email to my favourite environmentalist Al Gore and tell my research assistant Dimwit Mirza to check out the weather bureau.. but then she’s such a bore. I do prefer my Vaziran bua who’s got her hair hennaed a shocking Nagpur narangi orange.. and Madhu my Mottu Lottu Maid.

And right now, my Mottu is saying that the only one in Bollywood who has remained unaffected by the recession (Dimwit is asking me what that is.. eeeesh) is none other than our Kangana Ranaut. After her Tea-Series movie with Sunny Deol was scrapped, I’m told that Kango has no inclination or energy to sign up another project.

For that Tea-Series (is it Earl Grey tea or what?) movie, apni Kango had reserved her dates from January to March. But no, she doesn’t want to rush into another Raaz or Baaz 3. She’s devoted all those dates instead to boyfriend Adhyayan Suman.

Eooow, doesn’t she know about familiarity breeding contempt?

And by the way, Kango like her PRni, still gets majorly upset whenever her name (Kangy’s, not the PRni’s, sillies) appears in print with that of Aditya Panscholi. Well, we all have to carry our bhoot kaal with us, no baby? No point in pouting, “But why you all are giving his name? Not right no?” Yeah, sure.

Oh my guard!
A tweety bird was flapping around the sets of Lamha in Film City, when he noticed a hatta katta guy standing guard outside Sanjay Dutt’s vanity van. Believing that the star had got himself some new security guy, tweety made some inquiries.. and was horrified to learn that the guard was none other than the movie’s producer. Also known as Bunty Walia.

Dutt’s three-day bunk from the shoot had scared the hell out of him. The producer’s so apprehensive about Duttji’s moods that he reaches the location even before the tea boys (lots of tea happening today).. and keeps a hawk’s eye on the actor till it’s time to pack up.

And my mom used to tell me that actors would hover around directors like Mehboob Khan and K Asif at one time.. really, kaisa zamana aa gaya hai!

Welcome to Shreyaspur?
What ya? I do think that Shyam Benegal resurrected this actor’s career with Welcome to Somepur or the other.. but Shreyas Talpade isn’t exactly the grateful type.Tsk.

I hear that Benegal sir wants to make a movie on the farmer suicides in Maharashtra.. and had approached Shreyas for a role.

But Talpade to chal pade.. because he believes that he doesn’t look like a farmer from any angle. Mr Benegal is refraining from making any comments. So am I.

Ek Lamba si kahani
After gazillions of denials to the media, Minissha Lamba has finally come clean about wannabe actor Sohail Rathore, the man in her life. Mottu was looking up the petite actress on Facebook, where she has announced her prem kahani.

Chhotisi Lamba updated her status from being ‘single’ to ‘in a relationship’ just last night. And in response, her dosts and sahelis have sent her congratulatory messages.

But Minissha’s still being choosy about those who can access her photo albums on the site. Rathore, meanwhile, is awaiting the release of his debut film, The Goodbye Trip, which features 20 new faces. Mottu is hoping that she recognises his.. face that is.

Tantrum time
Anyone remembers Sneha Ullal? Seems she went southwards and has earned the reputation of a Tantrum Queen in Hyderabad.. by making unreasonable demands. One of her producers, fed up to the gills, told her that he had signed her on only because he couldn’t even approach Aishwarya Rai.

In fact, after giving her a mouthful, he ousted her from his movie instantly. Immediately, Sneha has reduced her fee and demands.

The trouble is that no one’s interested.. hasn’t she ever heard of being blacklisted? But then, such is life dearies.
