That’s a twosome

Aloha my peachy melbas. What gives? Not much happening in show town right now besides the usual shenanigans.

Everyone’s bitching out the other and blaming it on the media. Ho-ho-hum. Wish they’d take a look at their reflections in the mirror.. without make-up, of course. Chalo, jaane bhi do yaaron.

Okay, usually I wouldn’t blow my own trumpet, but today, when everyone’s taking credit for the work done by others, I’m not left with much choice. After breaking the news of Pooja Shetty and politico Milind Deora, I have some more khabar on that front for you dahlings.

The shaadi at Oberoi Trident on Sunday evening was a low-key affair. Mantriji Murli Deora, father of the groom, wanted it that way, and Manmohan Shettyji, father of the bride, was happy to oblige. So apart from the two families, their relatives and ekdum kareebi dosts, the only other invitees were from Deora’s inner political circle.

Shetty had informed his friends from showbiz town that later this month, he will host a grand reception for them so they can bless his beti and daamaad. Till then, it’s badhaai ho badhaai to the newly-weds. Gotta run, my jeweller has finally dug out a Kohinoor worth my dekko. If I like it I’ll get it mounted on a tiara to salute the Deoras with at the blingy bash that we show girls are just waiting to pencil into our dairies.

Ghar ghar ki kahani
Is there no limit to his superstitions. I’m talking about Govindaji. Who did you think? Dadoo Amitabh Bachchan? Oh puhleeeez! There are more happening celebrities in the industry my sweetsums.

My jasoos from Juhu tells me that Uncle Go Go, as he’s amusingly called, is shifting boriya bistara into his bungalow.. which is bang opposite his current residence, Jal Darshan Apartments. Kyun? Kyunki, his guruji has just told him that his present address is inauspicious. And that’s why he’s hit a blue patch. What a catch!

Anyway, Guruji has suggested that the bungalow, which Uncle Go Go was using sparingly as his office, is more suitable and will help him go up, up, up again. Really now! Wasn’t he living in Jal Darshan when he was giving hit after hit?

Will someone please knock some sense into Go Go Uncle’s head to do some sensible movies instead of going from one ghar to another in search of that elusive hit. As Mots often says, “Vaham ka koi ilaaj nahin hota.”

Naach meri jaan
The saying, ‘Charity begins at home’ has become quite passé now. The new mantra is: ‘Competition begins at home.’ Thank Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif for that sweeties.

Sallu has confirmed to perform at Sahara Star on New Year’s Eve. Of course, he is being paid a couple of crores to do his hippy hippy shake shake at the paanch sitara hotel. He had even roped in brothers, Arbaaz and Sohail, to burn (or break?) the dance floor. Only Kat won’t be there.

Katrina Kaif will be bringing in 2009 at the J W Marriot. And she’ll pocket a couple of crores for her special appearance. Me thinks Sallu should have paid Kat a crore himself to be by his side at the New Year bash.

Then many more might have wanted to catch the Yuvraaj in action. But as I said, these days competition begins at home. Tsk, tsk!

Never on a Sunday
Oi oi.. I do know that Akshaye Khanna is still rather shy and reserved types. Still, this tiddy-bitty surprises me. On Sunday morning, at the Willingdon Club, Akshoo, who regularly plays squash, was enjoying a game of badminton for a change.

He was sporting a beard which I’m told is going silver just like my Vijjy’s. Anyway, a middle-aged gent spotted him and asked his two sons if they recognised the dude with the daadhi. Akshoo ran off before the bachas could say, “A.” Really now, why can’t some people just let my Akshoo be! Meanies.

Run Purab run
Hmmph, now Mottu wants to add her two bit. She’s rambling about some Purab Kohli. He was the fourth guy in Rock On!!, after Arjun Rampal, Farhan Akhtar and Luke Kenny. Can’t expect anything better from Mottu, these days.

Anyway, on her early morning walk, Mots spotted this Kohli running like his life depended on it. Turned out he was carrying breakfast for wife Yamini.. and he didn’t want the khaana to go thanda. Really now!

Next, Mots will tell me about Razzak Khan’s exercise regime. Ooof! But then, such is life dearies.
