Kareena Kapoor is quite a card enthusiast, as she discovered when she went to Otters’ Club in Bandra on Tuesday evening for a coffee date.

Home alone?
HeyLo my kesariya kaju katlis! How is the taazi Thursday morning treating you? I’m off for an udaan with Vijjy. This time he wants me to join him on a test flight aboard some plane he intends to buy. Not that I’m impressed.. but a hawai sair once in a while is good for health. But until he reaches here, I’ll finish with your dose of daily goss.

Ahem, what is this I’m hearing now? That Twinkle Khanna is very much in town but staying strictly indoors?

Apparently, she’s being so cautious that she is not even venturing anywhere close to the windows and balconies lest someone spot her.

Kyun? Kyunki she was supposed to go to Vakola police station a couple of days ago, in connection with the obscenity case filed against her and hubby Akshay Kumar.. because she had unbuttoned his jeans at the Lakme Fashion Week.. in full public view. Last heard, Twinkle has still to visit the cop station.

According to reports, Tina is supposed to be away in Cape Town with hubby.. since he’s shooting a commercial there.
But unfortunately for her, the grapevine continues to insist that she is actually home.. alone.. waiting for Akki to return so they can go saath-saath to meet the cops. Yawn da yawn!

Rummy queen
Madhu my Mottu Maid is now asking me why don’t I have taash parties at my abode. How do I explain to her that I don’t like gambling shambling? Anyway, Mottu says that if I ever decide to host a card party, I must surely invite Kareena Kapoor.

Reason: Bebo is quite a card enthusiast, as she discovered when she went to Otters’ Club in Bandra on Tuesday evening for a coffee date. Mots tells me that Bebo was giving tips to mommy Babita, about how to pay rummy.. what card to pick up, what to discard and all that blah.

Then Mots says she doesn’t know what happened, but Babitaji asked Bebo if she also wanted to play and wanted to hand over her cards to the beti. But she politely declined, saying she would be leaving before their game got over. Oof, Mottu bhi na!

Aao gup karen
Guess who was spotted gossiping non-stop, asks my birdy from Bandra who’s just dropped in. Before I could respond, she quipped, ‘Karisma Kapur and Reema Jain.. they were dining shining at Royal China in Bandra on Tuesday night.’

Tweety, who’s always on the lookout for gupshup, tried to pick up some by taking the adjacent table. Seems Reemaji and Lolo were highly excited about a piece of news and couldn’t believe their ears.

According to my birdy, the two ladies just couldn’t stop discussing their scooplet. While one wondered, ‘What are you saying? Is it really true? I just can’t believe it,’ the other was quick to retort, ‘Of course. From what I’ve heard from my ever-reliable informer, there’s not even the slightest doubt about it.’

Koolio.. I’ve already assigned Tweety to find out the details and report to me pronto.

Romance interrupted
Oi oi.. what is this zaalim zamana? Such a pyaar ka dushman, I tell you. Looks like all the reports about their ‘very special friendship’ have affected them. Yeah, I’m talking about Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza, who have attended many a recent event together.

Until Tuesday evening.. when they opted to keep an hour’s gap between their appearances at the opening of the Evolve Spa in Bandra.

Rapchik Rajni learnt that Riteish and Genelia had spoken to each other earlier in the day and ensured to keep some gap between their entries and exits, lest they’re snapped together and their pictures are splashed in the next morning’s papers.

Really now!
