Director zameen par
Hiya my darling dewdrops! How goes it in your world? On a Saturday morning, I would ideally like to laze around under my woollens till late afternoon, watching my billi boo Laraboo chasing titlees on my terrace. But a girl’s gotta work to party over the weekend.. so I shall not waste any more time talking about my plans with my ear lobe nibbler Vyjjy.
Oops, he’s done it again. But it’s a little bit different this time. The last time was with London (name of the film, not the city sillies), which he took over after differences with original nirdeshak Gurindar
Chada. Now, I’ve just been informed that Sunny Deol has become the official director of his next home-production, The Man.
Okay, Sunny’s initial idea was to jointly direct The Man with Neeraj Pathak (who’s he?) but not anymore.
Reason: Pathakji’s debut film as a director Gumnaam went gum. And seeing the fate of Gloomnaam, (featuring who else but the wooden Dino Morea) Sunny paaji felt that two many cooks would spoil the broth. Especially if one cook has done more wrong than right. Bas, aur kya? Paaji is believed to have thought over the prevailing scenario and opted to take charge of the situation in the best way he can.
Now, I only hope Pathakji doesn’t go all over town, cribbing about being relegated to the sidelines a la Amol Gupte. Eeeeesh, I’ve resolved to not talk about that perfection-obsessed actor-filmmaker.
Rajeev gaya kaam se
What is the world coming to? Madhu my Mottu Maid is feeling for Rajeev Khandelwal. The actor was raring to go on his second film Peter Gaya Kaam Se, but will now have to restrain his enthu.
First the film got delayed due to the holiday season in Goa, where it’s set. And now, it has been further postponed.. since UTV, which is producing it, is busy cutting corners.
Khair, on the plus side, Khandelwal has bonded big time with the production guys.. so he hangs around at Red Box in Andheri, wining and dining away regularly with Ewww TV staffers. Chalo, film na sahi, dost toh bane. But that makes me wonder what cost cutting is You We and Double Eeew TV is talking about.
Shoo the chickens
Excuse me while I answer the phone, it’s demanding urgent attention.. ringing constantly.. for the last five minutes. Even that seems like eternity to moi, dahlings. Haan, so it turns out to be my poultrywala from Juhu.. raving and ranting about some Urvashi Sharma. Who is she?
I’m told she’s a wannabe actress who tried her luck in abhinay with Naqaab.. but ever since it bombed big time, she’s only been making appearances at events. Anyway, point is that at a party recently, Urvashi freaked out when a waiter offered her some starters.
Assuming that the starlet didn’t like the particular item, another chap offered her something else. But there was no stopping Urvashi.. she screamed that she’s allergic to chickens and can’t stand one even within a foot’s radius around her. Really.. how much more stranger can anyone get now?
Thodasa PR ho jaaye
Eeeew! The kind of events Madhu my Mottu Maid attends! I wouldn’t even be caught dead within a kilometre’s radius of the venue. Now she’s pakaoing me with info about Nikhil Dwivedi. I’m told, he’s been bonding big time with Sadaa, his heroine in Ali bali chali maili Khalbali.. so what if the film is yet to see the light of the day.
The other evening, he took her along to some television awards show.. and was overheard giving her tips about doing her PR well.. and how she should go about to ensure regular coverage in the media and all that blah blah and more blah and blah and blah and blah. Uff, so many blahs.
Really now! All this gyaan from someone who needs some tips and guidelines himself. Tsk tsk.
No photos with biwi
Oof! Now Mottu wants to complain about Nikhil Advani (too many Nikhils happening today). But then, who doesn’t? So can’t snap at her for this na? She’s furious with the nirdeshak for sternly refusing to pose for pictures with his wife Suparna whenever she accompanies him for any event in town.
And this is not just a one-off incident. It’s another thing that Advani is more than willing to pose with actresses and wannabes, as if they’re long-lost buddies. Mottu points out that she must tell him to learn something from her favourite director, Uncle Madhur Bhandarkar. Despite his partiality towards his heroines, from Priyanka Chopra to Mugdha Godse, at least Uncle Bhandarkar doesn’t shy away from clicking pictures with his biwi Renu. Kya karun? But then, such is life dearies.
