Howdee doo hoo my honey-fried noodles? How was Valentine's Day? All happy pink and red I hope. Mine was fantabulous.. my beau Vyjjy took me to an island in the middle of the Pacific ocean and apart from the usual red rose bouquets.. a 100 of them.. caviar, champagne and a seven-course banquet, he also gifted me the biggest diamond and platinum ring you've ever seen. No wonder, I'm so sunny this Sunday morning. But Vyjjy's gloomy because I've turned him down again.. after he went down on his knees for the millionth time.

Anyway, enough about me. I've some interesting news for you, my dimsums. So listen, my jasoos from Juhu has dropped by to update me on the blossoming friendship between Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori. The two have hit it off ever since they started shooting for his home production Kites.

And now that she's in town with her family to complete the rest of the shoot, Duggu boy has been dropping in frequently at Oakwood Premiere, a service apartment in Juhu where the Mori family has been put up.

On Friday night, at about 10:30 pm, he arrived in his white Mercedes. He was there for quite a while before driving away homewards. Now, now, don't get any naughty thoughts. For all you know, they could be discussing the script and the rest of the schedule.

Remember Hrithik is a perfectionist to the P? What did you think now? That they were bringing in Valentine's Day together? Now, now, there's Sussane to think about, dahlings.

Sword play
Now just when I was feeling all nice and chirpy, here's Madhu my Mottu Maid arriving with a cup of apple blossom tea and a tiddy biddy on Sonu Sood's obsession with martial arts.

Seems these days he's fascinated by something called Jianshu. I'm told it's a Chinese form of sword fighting that Sood is
learning for one of his forthcoming movies.

According to my khabru from Dubai, where Sood is shooting for a film these days, the actor starts brandishing his talwar first thing in the morning.. hours before reporting for sword duty. Once, the unit was even kept waiting by His Royal Highness and his practice sessions.

On when he completed his talwarbaazi, Jodha ka Bhaisa drove up to the location in a sedan. Thank God he didn't ask for an elephant. Otherwise, the unit would be still waiting. Tee hee.

Home viewing
The day my Mottu Maid stops pakaoing me with info about the chhota motta types, will surely be the most memorable days of my life. But until then, I must endure her bak bak.. now she's blabbering about Amrita Arora.

Mots was strolling along Carter Road in Bandra the other evening when she felt like renting a couple of DVDS from a store there. While browsing through the titles, she spotted a familiar face trying desperately to hide behind a cap and a scarf.

She was hoping it wasn't a die-hard Himesh Reshammiya fan, when Mottu spotted another familiar face.. and realised that it was just Amrita Arora checking out DVDs with her fiancé Shakeel Ladak. Thought they would be busy with shaadika preparations instead of scouting out home viewing options? Guess they just want to cosy up. Mmm, must ask Vyjjy to get me a DVD of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I do so adore Marilyn Monroe.

Getting knotty
Excuse me while I answer this call on my kaaliberry. Turns out to be a bitchy singer friend of mine, reporting from Duke's Retreat in Lonavala. She's there to attend Kailash Kher's wedding.

He tied the knot with Sheetal Bhan, niece of director Ashok Pandit. Nah, it's not a prem vivah, I'm told his parents fixed the match. Only a select few from movie nagariya were invited for the Rajasthan-theme sangeet ceremony on Friday night. Hopefully now Kailash will stop hitting on girls, laughed my singer saheli.

Before I could stop her, she went on to talk about Bhumika Chawla and her hubby, the self-styled yoga guru Bharat Thakur, who were up and about, strolling on the verandah early Saturday morning. Singer saheli is getting worse than my Motti. That's why I hung up on her!

Crooning comeback
Oi oi oi.. she's really crossing all limits, this Mottu. Now she wants me to listen to a song rendered by Cleo Issacs. Is she a new singer on the block? Mots tells me that she was an aspiring actress who entered the industry nine years ago.

But when she couldn't make it big, even after being seen with some of the most influential men in tinsel town, she packed her bags and returned to London, where she took up singing.

Mottu's become a fan of this Cleo and is humming her Tu hai wohi non-stop.. God, the agony! But then, such is life dearies.
