Hello my honey-friend noodleys! I don’t think I’ll be going to South Africa for another weekend. There’s only so much cricket I can take in my life, no more. So I’ve categorically told Vyjjy that his pleading won’t make me change my mind. Anyway, why bother going there when there’s a lot more interesting stuff happening here in our glamour gaon?

Achha listen.. for all those who are wondering whatever happened to Barbara Mori, who will be seen with Hrithik Roshan in his ghar ki film Kites.. and why hasn’t there been any news about her, I’ve some andar ki baat to share with you dahlings. Ms Mori returned to her home a few weeks ago.. but that wasn’t the last we saw or heard of her. She’ll be back early next month.. just in time for the last remaining patchwork of the Roshan production, scheduled to start on May 6. Now, you don’t really want me to go into the details of why she flew back home.

Haan, so I’m told that Ms Mori will be back in apni Mumbai nagariya by May 5.. and will be staying here till she wraps up her shoot and the dubbing for Kites. Meanwhile, Roshan boy is growing his beard for the shoot.. which he had shaved off to make an appearance for an event of Macro Man, the men’s innerwear brand that he endorses. Nahin toh look reveal ho jaata na. Anyway, I’m just waiting to see what happens when Mori returns. Sounds a lot more fun than.. ahem, never mind.

These two might be saat samundar paar from our tinsel town.. but they continue to deny that their heart goes dhak dhak for each other.. and that they’re just good friends. Well, I’m talking about Dev Patel and Freida Pinto.. who dumped her fiancé, Rohan Antao, post Slumdog Millionaire.

I’ve just been informed that last week, Patel and Pinto were enjoying an intimate lunch in Israel (of all places, I tell you). Aur pata hai kya, his mother Aunty Patel is believed to have told the media in the UK that life couldn’t get better for her son.. and also that she’s happy for them.

And it seems Dev boy keeps his family in the loop every time he meets her.. because Aunty Patel also told the media there that they knew he was flying off to Israel to meet Freida. Now it remains to be seen how long she.. Freida, not Dev’s mummy sillies.. keeps their relationship going. Because I’d hate to see him become another Antao. Shudder, shudder.

Madhu my Mottu Maid is maha upset. Reason: she refuses to believe that the Harman Baweja she has been interacting with on Facebook isn’t really Priyanka Chopra’s ex man. “How could anyone else know the things he did?” she protests.

Anyway, I’m much more impressed with John Abraham. Although some of his impersonators have created profiles in his name, he’s been officially invited to launch his own page on it soon. So that his admirers are not misled into assuming that they are interacting with him when it’s actually a fake.

Itna hi nahin, the sitewalas are also eager that his profile have a link to his personal website.. since that would further be a proof that the fans are communicating with the real John Abraham.. unperturbed by worries that they’re sharing anything with a stranger. So cool, no?

Friendly company
Rapchik Rajni, who was meeting her new boyfriend over the weekend, wants to share a tiddy-bitty with me and you. Nah, before you assume anything, it’s not about her beau sillies.. but about Urmila Matondkar. Aah, where has she disappeared all these days? Must call her after I finish my column.

Anyway, before I digress any further, Rajni tells me that she spotted Urmi at the Glass House in Hyatt Regency in Andheri the other evening. My Mehbooba gal was dining in the company of her good dosts, Tusshar Kapoor and Manish Malhotra. Hmm, badhiya hai, I remarked. But Rajni is still surprised when I tell her that the trio are thick friends. Kyun? Kyunki, whatever happened to Celina Jaitly, she wonders.. adding that till just a month ago, Tushki and Celin were regularly catching movies together in suburban multiplexes. Really now!

Khair, seems it had been quite a while since Urmi, Tushki and Manish had caught up recently.. due to their busy schedules.. so they chose the weekend to do so. Alright!

Break kebaad
Now my Mottu Maid wants me to hear some news about Shiney Ahuja. Must say it’s been quite a while since we last heard or saw of him too.. hai na? Not that I was missing him all that much either.

Haan, so Mots tells me that Shiney has signed up for a movie.. at long last.. finally. And guess what? To be helmed by southside director, it’s an ekdum scary horror film, also featuring Chitrangada Singh.. who has done two out of her three movies with Shiney. Bachche log, taaliyaan.. because its not everyday that Shiney signs a movie. But then, such is life dearies.
