We love new locations, and we love shooting pix. You know.. the candid kind.

So when Vaziran


, Honey’s confidante and informant, jetted to Cape Town, she concentrated on clicking pix.

Vaziran didn't make conversation with Dia Mirza because she thinks that the actress (ACTRESS???) is as fake a seven–rupee note.

Change of heart

In a sudden outburst of objectivity and being fair even to lousy actresses, Vaziran did return with a picture of DM’s.. which is actually pretty nice, far superior to any of DM’s performances.

Next Vaziran was quite happy to shoot pix of Shabana Raza aka Neha because now there’s a girl who’s looking super-cool and should return to the movies asap. She’s playing a cameo in Acid Factory, which is why she was there.

Oh, Neha’s husband Manoj Bajpai, was the most intelligent as well as the most convivial guy on the location shoot. Danny Denzongpa for some strange reason was in search of a “harem” (in vain), Tinnu Anand narrated XXX-rated stories, Dino Morea kept running at the oceanfront. And Fardeen Khan sulked because of Honey’s items about his wife Natasha.


maun vrat

was pretty welcome though, especially remembering the kind of positive publicity given to him by Vaziran bua when he was in prison for a drug charge. Magazine covers were given to him.. pyaar se. But memory is so short, no? And gratitude, ha ha, what’s that?

And Sanjay Gupta hosted a party every night. Vaziran went to sleep at one of those parties because, well, she’s Cinderella and turns into a pumpkin at night. She can’t pole dance either.

Now we hear Sanjay Gupta is so pleased with Vaziran’s photos that he has invited her to the outdoor shoot of



Vaziran has agreed to go only for one reason. Dia Mirza won’t be there. Touch wood, plastic, aluminium.
