Preity Zinta

Preity Zinta gets a rude shock as someone has been masquerading under her name on a famous networking site!Preity Zinta finally decided to join this really happening networking site to which all her celeb friends are hooked on to. But to her shock she found that there already is a fake Preity Zinta with a fan following of fourteen lakhs!

Adds our source, “Preity Zinta was shocked to find out that someone has been faking it out as her. She immediately asked her dear friend Karan Johar (who is very active on the site) to help out. He immediately put word out on the virtual world to open their eyes to the real Preity Zinta. And thanks to his reach, people are slowly realizing that the former profile was a fake one and turning to the real one.”

Preity is taking some serious damage control measures. Adds our source, “Preity has now decided to get her profile made official through the concerned website so that such a thing doesn’t happen again!”If it’s any consolation Preity has only one fake profile to worry about!


Amitabh Bachchan gets threat calls

Amitabh Bachchan

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has received threat calls from an unknown person on his mobile, the actor revealed it on his blog. Big B, who played a genie in his latest rlease Aladin, wrote: “I visit a Muslim dargah and a Hindu temple has been viciously criticised by an unknown element on my mobile. He says it is incorrect of me to do so and that I should never do it again.” Amitabh Bachchan has been paying a visit to the Haji Ali dargah in Mumbai for the past few years.The actor in his reply said: “Well dear man, if you are reading this insignificant little blog of mine, here is what I have to say to you. I am going to do it again and shall continue to do it. And I want to see how you are going to stop me.

If you have the courage and guts com and get me.”Big B, who recently celebrated his 67th birthday earlier this month, said: “I do have his mobile number and I do have a name too. I believe that there is no law that can protect such atrocious uttering. We live in a temperate secular society where we learn to respect all religions. My belief is of my own making. If the temple or the mosque or a dargah has no objection to my visits ; if my Constitution and the laws of the country give me that freedom and if I do not offend them, then who is this man to stop me or correct me ? It is elements like this that penetrate the psyche of vulnerable and innocent people and subject them to unnecessary and unjustified bias. I strongly object to it and abhor the existence of such elements in society.

This gentleman even threatens me by getting personal. He says that my film Aladin shall not have success because of this deed of mine.”The legendary actor said he will never change his routine by a mere threaten call: “At the cost of every film of mine failing, I am not going to change my routine.If I wish to go to a temple I shall go there. If I wish to go to a mosque I shall go there as well and so also to a gurudwara or a church. And I want to see who is going to stop me from doing so.” Thr actor’s film Aladin has been praised by his followers.


Katrina Kaif caught again!

katrina kaif

Just before the release of her film New York, Bollywood’s numero-uno actress, Katrina Kaif had visted the holy ‘dargah’ (shrine) of the revered sufi saint, Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti (Katrina visits Ajmer to bring luck to New York!- June 24). While on that occasion she had worn a blue scarf to hide herself from the media glares as well as her fans, this time it was a yellow one!

As per sources, Katrina was in Ajmer yesterday (Friday) to pray for the success of her friend Salman Khan’s London Dreams and also her upcoming, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. Before proceeding to the shrine, Katrina briefly halted at RTDC’s Khadim Tourist Bungalow in Ajmer and changed her dress. She then left for the ‘dargah’ but despite all the secrecy, she was unable to hide herself from the media and her fans (just like last time!) who got a whiff of her arrival and thronged the shrine, thus blocking the roads to the ‘dargah’.

She hurriedly paid her respects and left.Here’s joining Katrina in her prayer and wishing London Dreams and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani the best!


London Dreams London embarrassment


The London Dreams show (to promote Vipul Shah’s film) at the Excel Arena in London got cancelled because of a no-show by artistes and technicians. Says a source, “Intech Image had tied up for the film promotion of London Dreams and had planned a few activities for the promotion of the film. An event had been planned at Excel Arena in London, where Salman Khan, Asin and Ajay Devgn were to participate on October 28 along with director Vipul Shah and music directors Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.Ajay backed out of the event due to prior commitments and Asin didn’t have a valid visa.

It didn’t make sense for just Salman to perform, if the other artistes were not available, so the organisers cancelled the show.”But no one bothered to inform poor Salman about the last-minute cancellation, adds an insider “Salmanbhai came in straight from Dubai where he had gone for a special show of London Dreams. When he landed in London on Wednesday, he learnt that the show had been cancelled! Fortunately, he was anyway supposed to be there for some media interaction so his trip wasn’t entirely wasted.”Vipul Shah says, “We were supposed to do one event in London but we never went ahead with the proposal. Salman has gone only for the media promotion of London Dreams to London. He is there for two days.

S Sabapaty from Intech says, “It’s kind of Mr Vipul Shah to say this but we had organised a show for LD at the Excel Arena but couldn’t gather anyone except Salman to appear on the show so we decided to cancel it. In the original agreement, we had advertised in the publicity posters that the cast and crew of LD would attend and the event would be held in the form of a concert.But the cast and crew who were to perform couldn’t make it because of the problems they had. We can’t cheat the audience so we decided to cancel the show.”

Apparently, Salman was informed at the last minute? “No, he was informed about it earlier and he was on his way to London in any case for media stuff. We got a great response for the show but had to cancel it due to technical issues. As a company, we have to maintain our reputation so we took the call to cancel the show on October 28.” Salman Khan remained unavailable for comment.

She had done the changes for a new Hollywood film that she has signed recently.Says a source, “She was waiting for the shooting of Hissss to end. After that, she was to start shooting for her new Hollywood film. Mallika wants to look the part and that’s why she had her lips done, while she was in India. She was here for more than a month.

In fact, she was supposed to leave more than two weeks ago but left for LA only last week.”Her brother Vikram Singh, refutes the charge, “What rubbish! Mallika is the same as ever before. I would have definitely known had she done something.”She is presently shooting in Los Angeles for a film inspired by San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Devi Harris.

However, Mallika remained unavailable for her lippy comment.

The Power couple of Bollywood Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor today addressed the ongoing Hindustan Times Leadership Summit. Addressing the summit, duo replied a volley of questions including their personal life, professional life and future plans.On marriage plan, Saif Ali Khan said that there is no rush to get married at this moment. Kareena backed the statement of Saif.

Saif said, “I first saw Kareena when she was 14 year-old.” Saif said that he was interested in cricket for long time but finally switched the gear towards cinema.He confessed that he has had 17 flops in a row. On the other hand, Kareena also responded positively to various questions.When asked about her size zero figure, Kareena said, “I was never size zero.” “I am what due to body of my work not due to body,” she replied.

The actress said that she always knew to be an actor. She said that her elder sister Karisma is her role model.


Kareena-Shahid no longer in touch

Kareena, Shahid

When Kareena Kapoor dated Shahid Kapur, she boldly accepted and like other actresses she did not name their relationship as friendship and now that she has broken up with him and dating Saif Ali Khan, she declared the world that she is in love with Saif. She is a woman who speaks her mind out and never feels hesitate to share her feelings to the world.

But when news is doing the rounds that Shahid Kapur’s father Pankaj Kapur is penning a script keeping Kareena Kapoor in mind, Bebo openly declared that she is no more in touch with Shahid. But added that in the past she had shared a wonderful relationship with Shahid and not in touch with him now. She also said that though they drifted apart but they could wish each other well. She always makes sure that she asks him about his well-being.

Kareena cuts off with Shahid personally but professionally she wished to link up with him. Commenting in acting on Pankaj Kapur’s script, she said, “If they have a good script and a good role and ask me to do it, I see no reason why I shouldn’t.”


Salman Khan ‘Most Wanted’ with Nayanthara?

Salman Khan is obviously elated with the success of his latest release ‘Wanted’ and he has still more reasons to smile. The producer Boney Kapoor is so excited after the success of the film that he has decided to make its sequel aptly titled ‘Most Wanted’.

Boney wanted to re-create the magic with the same star cast, but director Prabhu Deva suggested that they change the female lead and rope in the south siren Nayanthara instead of Ayesha Takia.

Interestingly, Prabhu Deva’s affair with the actress is painting the gossip columns red down south. In fact, just a few weeks back, Prabhu’s wife had come out all guns blazing at Nayan in an interview to a local daily there warning Nayanthara to keep away from her husband.

So, this suggestion from the director suggests a tint of truth in the rumors. Whatever may be the case, we would definitely like to see our Sallu Bhai romancing the sexy siren from the south.


The cat-woman and mermaid Kareena Kapoor

There is no denying that fact that Kareena Kapoor is at present the hottest star to bank upon in Bollywood. So, when the Italian watch brand ‘Chronotech’ came in to launch their brand in India, Bebo was the obvious choice as their brand ambassador and what made the promotion a novelty is the fact that Kareena has donned upon two very different looks for the ad.

In the first look, she is a cat woman quite similar to that of Lara Croft with a black jumpsuit, tightly coiled hair and whipcord body. In the other look, Kareena is a mermaid in a blue attire. Doubtlessly, Kareena looks ravishing in both the looks.


Shilpa Shetty to get committed to Raj Kundra today

They had been courting each other for nearly two years now and they never tried to hide their finally. Finally, they have decided to get into the commitment mode and Shilpa Shetty is getting engaged to Raj Kundra today with a “very private affair” to be attended by “immediate family members” of both Shilpa and Raj.

Raj had proposed Shilpa this Diwali by gifting her a ring. Shilpa consulted her parents and in a hush-hush everything was finalized. For her engagement ceremony Shilpa will be wearing a pink chiffon sari and a dull gold-colored blouse designed by Manish Malhotra, and jewellery designed by a store in Bandra.

It is unfortunate that Shilpa’s younger sister Shamita Shetty will not be able to attend the ceremony as she is locked up in the Big Boss’ house at present. The wedding will take place sometime in December after Shamita comes out of the house.


Asin opposed to skin show and vulgarity on screen

At a time when even established actresses are resorting to skin show to grab big deals and projects, Asin, the new comer from South, is very particular about the fact that she will never go for roles which demand vulgarity and exposing.

“I would never do something that is baseless, vulgar and indecent… something I am not comfortable doing and therefore can’t do justice with,” Asin said.

She also added that her criteria for selecting films include script, role, director, producer and then co-artist. “Language or financial issues never determine what film I want to do,” she said.

Just one film old, this pretty and talented actress from South selects her roles very carefully. At present, she is awaiting the release of ‘London Dreams’ opposite Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan where she plays a rock star. She is busy these days with a line of endorsements and a Disney film titled 19th Step.


Personal items of stars fetching huge amounts at Farah Khan’s chat show

A new trend has been set by Farah Khan’s chat show ‘Tere Mere Beach Main’, where stars auction their personal items for charity.

Superstar Salman Khan donated his famous yellow towel from ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ autographed by him. He also jived to the popular track of ‘Jeene ke hain chaar din’ with this towel on the show. The towel has been bought by a fan for a whopping 1 lakh. All the proceeds of the celebrity memorabilia auctions will benefit the NGO SNEHA (Society for Nutrition, Education and Health Action).

Again, the Kolkata-based Riddhi Nair, a 33 year old housewife, decided to bid for Olympic gold-medalist Vijender Singh’s boxing gloves auctioned on the show because she was moved by the way his mother brought him up. She spent Rs.17,800 for the item and says she will treasure it like “heirloom” forever.
“I happened to see the repeat telecast of ‘Tere Mere Beach Mein’ where Vijender’s mother spoke about how she never bought a new sari for herself for a long time so that she doesn’t have to compromise on her son’s training. It left me very emotional.

“I was touched to see his rising - from a remote village to being a world champion. It’s very thought provoking. It is the perfect example for my daughter that she must always do something big in life,” said Nair.

Nitin Jain, a 39-year-old investor, bid for Priyanka Chopra’s autographed Gavin Maguel designer dress auctioned on Farah’s show and paid Rs.50,000 it.

“Recently, there were several items that were auctioned on ‘Tere Mere Beach Mein’ - the chat show on STAR Plus. We had bid for many of them and were, in fact, the second highest bidders for Bipasha Basu’s shoes. But my daughter is a Priyanka Chopra fan - so she also wanted it,” said Jain, who is based in New Delhi.

Other items sold through the show include Shahid Kapoor’s cap for Rs.28,500, Kareena Kapoor’s blue dress for Rs.22,300, Yusuf Khan’s cricket bat for Rs.60,750, at all.
