Hot hot hot...,gossip corner

Hey ho my raspberry jujubes! How are you coping with the summer? I’ve decided to fly down an Eskimo for some inputs to make my penthouse a pleasantly cold place, and beat the sizzling heat this summer. Considering the way the temperature’s rising these days, I might as well take some precautionary measures.. before it gets worse.

John AbrahamBut Hyderabad surely seems to be hotter compared to apni Mumbai, says my informer from the Charminar city. Why else would John Abraham suddenly take a couple of days’ break and return to town, he wonders.

I’m told Johnny boy suffered sunburn, while shooting a marathon spell for David Dhawan’s Hook ya Crook on the sprawling sets at Ramoji Rao Film City. Can’t blame him ya.. because most of the filming is done during the day.. and that too outdoors in the hot sun.

So Abraham is taking it easy for the next few days. Besides, he’ll also be spending quality time with girlfriend Bipasha Basu. She’s been busy with work and couldn’t fly down to Hyderabad to catch up with him.

She’s also chilling, before heading to Goa later this weekend to shoot All The Best with Ajay Devgan and Fardeen Khan.. and that’s when Abraham also joins his team of Hook ya Crook and resumes filming.

Nah, my dahlings, the shoot hasn’t been halted in the interim. Director Dhawan is canning scenes in which John doesn’t feature with the other actors.

So now Madhu my Mottu Maid, who was planning to fly down there to lose weight under John’s training has dropped her holiday plans altogether. Kool kool.

Sallu-HrithikDosti in Dubai

Seems the two hunks are bonding after a long long time. I’m talking about Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan.. who haven’t done any movie or show together so far.. but are currently in Dubai.

I’m told Sallu and Dugs also did a photo shoot on Tuesday afternoon and seemed to get along very well, au contraire to what the naysayers have been claiming off late.

My saheli from there reports that they’ve flown there to be the guests of honour for a polo match being organised by Cartier at Arabian Rances on Friday.

Until then, Dugs will be moving about in the city, says my khabru, adding that he.. the Roshan dude, not my informer sillies.. will also be visiting the property he’s reportedly acquired there. As for Sallu bhai.. he’ll be in his usual ‘Just chill chill, just chill’ mood.

KanganaStill naaraaz

Okay, so Kangana Ranaut hosted her birthday party at the Leela on Monday night.. and beau Adhyayan Suman was not only the first to arrive, but also the last to leave. He seemed to be so happy for his Kangy that he didn’t budge from the dance floor until 4 a m, when it was time to shut the place.

But if you ask me, I’m amazed by his unlimited enthusiasm for Kangy’s saalgirah bash. Kyun? Kyunki his father, Shekhar Suman, wasn’t invited, says my jasoos, reminding me that he’s not exactly pleased with his sonny boy’s prem kahani with Kangy.

And Kangy is also believed to have taken his stand in her stride.. and doesn’t make any effort to win his approval either. Looks like she’s taking pyaar kiya to darna kiya a little too seriously. Hai na?

Neil Nitin MukeshHis closest shave

Now, now.. if it had been Vyjjy, his jaw would have hit the floor if he were suddenly told that he couldn’t be the special guest at a promotional event.

No wonder Neil Nitin Mukesh was stunned when he was called to be told that Gilette’s association with him can’t work given his trademark stubble look. They reasoned that keeping in mind their product range, the forever stubble sporting Neil couldn’t be their khaas mehmaan that evening.. unless he chose to sport a chikna look for their event.

Bechara Neil.. he was so embarrassed at the thought of being spotted clean-shaven.. that he chose to go in for a very close trimming of his stubble. So he would not look too out of place for a shaving products range.. and not go the chikna route so suddenly either. All’s well that ends well, thankfully.

Weight and watch

Neetu-ChandraHmmph! My Mottu Maid is back from the supermarket, after shopping for my groceries. And now she wants me to hear about Neetu Chandra. Mottu and her chhutputs can never part, I tell you.

Anyway, Mots is cribbing that Neetu doesn’t seem to get tired of stopping everyone who has time to listen to her.. to brag about how she works out regularly for hours for her svelte (?) body and is very particular and strict about her diet and all that blah blah blah.

It’s another thing that she’s bursting out of her couple-of-sizes-too-small clothes and needs urgent help in revamping her wardrobe.

And if that’s not enough, Neetu doesn’t seem to mind the attention from anyone and everyone who hangs around in her building compound.. just to have a glimpse of her. Really now! Does it look like I care? But then, such is life dearies.
