Aamir, Kiran

You must be wondering why Aamir Khan has not been blogging all this while. Well, he has a reason. He and his wife Kiran Rao are trying to come to terms with the lost of their first baby due to miscarriage.Aamir revealed the tragic news after keeping silent for two months. “I have bad news folks. Kiran and I lost our baby.

Despite our best efforts we were unable to avert a miscarriage. The last 2 months have been a struggle for us and that is one of the reasons I was absent from the blog in more ways than one. K (Kiran) and I need time to heal,” he wrote in his blog. It was earlier reported that Aamir and Kiran were expecting their first child after they were spotted checking into a hospital.


Shahid-Priyanka kiss leaked for good


Having being in Bollywood for a few years now, Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra seem to have learnt the art of marketing. Just a few days before the release of Kaminey, the news broke out that Priyanka allowed Shahid to kiss her for a special scene.As expected, the duo has neither admitted nor denied the news.

They know the fact ‘the more the hype around the film, the better,’ as it will help sell more tickets. So, Shahid-Priyanka kiss was leaked for good and at the right time. After all no publicity is bad publicity.It was earlier reported that Priyanka was reluctant to lip-lock with Shahid in Kaminey, as she was not informed in advance.

However, she realised the need for kiss after director Vishal Bharadwaj made her to see the lovemaking scene that looked dry without a kiss. Well, Kaminey is all set for release this Friday, 14th August. Shahid plays a double role in it. Watch out guys!


I am unsocial by nature: Shahrukh


Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan may be known for his gift of gab and witty one liners during his press conferences but the actor states that he is unsocial by nature.The ‘Baadshah of Bollywood’ says that he is not a member of social networking sites and does not blog frequently (apart from his posts on Kolkata Night Riders website) because he does not consider himself socially capable.

I don’t have social etiquettes. I am socially not very capable. I really cant do that ‘Hi how are you.. I am shopping here…here is a pic of my dog…’,” said the actor who was in the city recently to host a MBA quiz show organised by IIPM. My friends, Karan (director Karan Johar) and all are deeply into it but not me. I don’t even us a phone,” said Shahrukh.

But the actor revealed that he uses Internet to download online books as he “enjoys knowledge”. Shahrukh said that with e-books it has become convenient for him to read even while he is on the move. The actor who recently downloaded about 300 books online advised to his fans to absorb as much knowledge you can.

“Whatever it takes, read a lot in whichever medium you feel comfortable. Personally, reading is the nicest thing which can happen to me,” Shahrukh said.


Hrithik’s chemistry with Aishwarya

Hrithik, Aishwarya

Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan’s first pairing happened with Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom 2 and their sizzling chemistry rocked the box-office. Ashutosh Gowariker’s mega epic Jodhaa Akbar saw them coming back together and taking their chemistry a step further. Now they are back together for the third time with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish and if our unit sources are to be trusted then these Bollywood’s hottest on screen pair displayed amazing rapport when they got shooting together again.

Though Guzaarish went on floors from July 31st, Ash just recently joined them after coming back from Mani Ratnam’s Raavan shoot. Our unit sources reveal, “There was instant chemistry between the two as they caught up with each other after a long time. From their first shot together, they were right on cue. It is learnt that all their shots, which were rather intense, were canned in the first take itself, much to the delight of the director. And as soon as a dramatic scene would be wrapped up, the two would be cracking up about something they said to each other.

It’s their personal rapport that makes their acting seem so effortless on screen,” our source added. Apparently Ash had also brought homemade food for the entire unit and was instrumental in making the sets cosy for everyone.


Swine flu scares on the sets of Veer


On Monday night, the shooting of Anil Sharma’s Veer in Pune was cancelled at the last minute because of the wide spread of swine flu in the city. Last week, the schedule of Karan Johar’s Qurbaan too was postponed because of the rising cases of flu in the city. Says a source, “It was a three-night shoot which required almost the entire star cast consisting of Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Zarine Khan, Jackie Shroff and Puru Rajkumar.

Producer Vijay Galani consulted Salman Khan and decided to call off the shoot as a precautionary measure. Galani confirms, “Yes, we decided to cancel the Pune schedule because of the swine flu. We have been reading about it but we were going ahead with our shoot. We were to leave yesterday afternoon for Pune and shoot for five nights till August 15 at a college campus. We had booked two options — the Pune Engineering College and the Agricultural College campus but yesterday morning we took a call not to go there. My crew had been telling me for the last few days to cancel the shoot. Salman said it’s up to me. So for the safety of my cast, crew, and technicians, I have cancelled the shoot.

Galani is now looking for a similar location in Mumbai, “I will try to manage the Pune schedule in Mumbai. I have to look after the safety and interests of my cast, technicians and crew.” Director Anil Sharma says, “We decided it is better not to go as our was a big unit and it would attract huge crowds. The Pune administration is busy with the swine flu and it would be unfair for them to look after us too. We didn’t want to take an unnecessary risk and have our unit exposed to swine flu. Salman also wanted it to be cancelled as he said this is the right decision.


Sushmita helps Kangana shed driving phobia

Sushmita, Kangana

Known in the industry circles for their independent personas, Kangana Ranaut and Sushmita Sen are doing a film together for the first time. The film is Anees Bazmee directed No Problem which is produced by Anil Kapoor. Presently the shooting for the film is on in South Africa with the entire ensemble cast present including Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Akshaye Khanna, Sushmita Sen, Kangana Ranaut, Neetu Chandra and Paresh Rawal. Our unit sources reveal both Sush and Kangana have bonded so well that Sush is now seen encouraging Kangana to take up driving more seriously.Kangana is known to have driving phobia.

Though the independent actress owns a car she hates driving and the reason is she doesn’t feel that she is confident enough to drive around the Mumbai city. When in South Africa, Sush came to know about this and started taking extra efforts in encouraging Kangana to try driving in South Africa as much as she can. She even started hoping into the car herself and sitting next to Kangana began giving her instructions as she drove short distances around their hotel there.Now this has begun to work wonders slowly and Kangana has started to enjoy driving.

Well it’s a heartening thing to see that two actresses are bonding so well that they are helping the other to overcome their phobias that too on an outdoor shoot when in today’s time we only get to hear about cat fights and bitchy anecdotes whenever two actresses shoot together abroad for a film.


Sanjay Dutt is upset with Ajay Devgan

Sanjay Dutt

Ajay Devgan is planning to shell out Rs 50 lakhs if he wants his film All The Best, to hit the theatres on October 16, the same day as Aladin, Blue and Main aur Mrs Khanna. Even a few tabloids have reported this today. However, this decision has not gone down well with Sanjay Dutt who stars along with Ajay in the comic caper All The Best directed by Rohit Shetty.

Reveals our source, “Sanjay Dutt already has two major releases Blue and Aladin this year lined up on the same date, October 16th during Diwali. Now he is in no mood to have a third release on the same day too. He is very upset with Ajay Devgan and is discouraging him from releasing the movie on Diwali.”

Anthony D’Souza’s Blue will see Sanjay Dutt in an action role where as in Aladin he will be seen as the bad guy called Ringmaster. Both the scheduled films are big budget starrers and Sanjay Dutt does not want to take any chances with them. He has been banking on these films for quite some time now, especially after a hit-less two years.


Shahid’s all praise for Saif-Kareena

Shahid Kapoor

Nearly two years after his official breakup, Shahid Kapoor keeps getting quizzed about ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor. While Bebo and Saif have since then become one of the most talked about couples in town, Shahid too has been in the news for his alleged link-ups.But it’s impossible for Shahid to escape questions about Kareena. Now whatever be his off screen equation with her, Shahid seems to have made it a point to talk positively about his ex in front of the media.At a recent event when Shahid was asked about his favourite co-star – Kapoor diplomatically mentioned all his heroines including Kareena. “Kareena and I had great chemistry in Jab We Met”.

Shahid also had words of praise for Saif Ali Khan. When asked to compare Kaminey and Omkara, Shahid said, “Kaminey is Vishal’s first out-and-out commercial film. But Omkara was phenomenal and Saif was fantastic in the film.” Kapoor made it a point to single out Saif’s performance in the film.According to a recent report, Saif too has gone on record saying that he doesn’t see Love Aaj Kal and Kaminey as rival releases. And is in mood of playing up his recent claim that Kaminey was offered to him before Shahid.

We don’t know whether this admiration is for real but it is certainly a smart move by him to avoid any controversy.


Salman Khan sponsors 10 cancer patients

Salman Khan

Much has been written and spoken about Salman Khan and his ways. But the man simply doesn’t cease to amaze me. A little birdie tells me that Salman Khan has agreed to sponsor the treatment of 10 cancer patients recently. Apparently top doctors from the famous Tata Memorial Hospital had approached Khan to attend the World Lymphoma Awareness Day function.

While last year the patients had requested Katrina Kaif to come over and spend time with them, this year Salman Khan is their preferred choice. So Sallu has not only agreed to drop by but has also promised to sponsor the treatment of 10 patients suffering from cancer. What’s more Salman has even promised to dance with them during the evening!


Salman-SRK-Vivek avoid face off!

Salman, SRK, Vivek

Juicy Mausi has a great piece of gossip from the 25th wedding anniversary bash of Ramesh Taurani (TIPS Films head honcho) at a suburban five-star hotel last night in Mumbai. It was a grand A-list affair with the who’s of who of Bollywood and the music industry coming in to greet the Taurani couple. However, what left me amused was how Salman Khan avoided coming face-to-face with Shah Rukh Khan.What’s more, as soon as Salman arrived, Vivek Oberoi slipped out immediately.Shah Rukh arrived driving his car, puffing his cigarette.

Sohail Khan was already present when he went in. King Khan didn’t hang around much and left after greeting the Taurani couple.Just minutes after SRK left, Salman Khan arrived from the back door entrance of the hotel. Now I don’t know if Sohail called up his elder brother to tell him the ‘coast is clear’, or whether he kept Salman waiting to arrive to avoid a face off with SRK.But funnily as soon as Salman made a back door entry, Vivek Oberoi who was present at the party immediately rushed to the front door to make an exit. He was in such a hurry that he told his driver to shift to the next seat and he himself took to the wheel.

Salman, too, left in exactly five minutes from the front gate. Luckily, Vivek’s car was out of the hotel premises by then. Incidentally, SRK and Salman stay just few metres away from Taj Lands End. Well, here’s hoping that both do better than Khan’s last effort Billu!
