Bomb squad called in on Thursday night after the car was found mysteriously parked in a housing society. Upen Patel’s neighbours allege he parks randomly to evade creditors
Lekha Menon (MUMBAI MIRROR; June 05, 2010) Actor Patel, who is at present in the UK, has denied he is a defaulter
A mystery BMW, parked at a housing society on 25th Road, Bandra (W), sparked a bomb scare on Thursday night necessitating the arrival of a bomb squad and creating panic in the area. The dark blue BMW convertible attracted much attention on this road, not just for its sleek lines, but also for its missing owner.
Residents of Hindustan Society were flummoxed to find the car parked in their backyard last afternoon, but they began to panic when no one came to claim it till late night, and none of the residents reported a visitor with a BMW.
Adding to their apprehension was the sight of two large plastic bags in the backseat. What followed was a riveting four-hour-long drama involving cops, the bomb disposal squad, and wanna-be actor Upen Patel.
The car was traced to Patel when the bomb squad, togged in full gear, tentatively opened the car door and retrieved the plastic bags only to find not explosives, but some film contracts that led them to Upen Patel.
As it turns out, Patel, over the past few months has allegedly been “parking” his car with the help of friendly mechanics and Man Fridays at various locations in and around Bandra.

I am out of the theatre and still thinking, “Is this the same Rajkumar Santoshi who gave some hard-hitting and intense films for a long time?”. Yup, he directed Andaz Apna Apna but that was like some 15-16 years ago. Post-AAA, he came up with close to dozen intense and almost realistic films. A certain image of Santoshi was carved out thanks to his kind of films. But with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, he breaks that image and proves that he STILL can come up with solid youthful entertainers! Sweet, witty, little absurd… Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani succeeds completely in making you laugh!
The story of the movie: Prem (Ranbir Kapoor) lives in a town called Mount Valley and runs ‘Happy Club’ in the coffin shop of one of his friends’ father! He is carefree, happy and wants to make others happy. A case of mistaken identity leads him to meeting Jenny (Katrina Kaif). He soon falls in love with her but doesn’t profess even though both he and Jenny become thick pals. The reason-both are as different as chalk and cheese. To begin with, Prem is the son of a staunch Hindu while Jenny is Catholic. Jenny wants her dream man to be literate and who works hard for his family. But Prem is 9th standard pass and doesn’t work at all. And lastly, Prem is a vegetarian and Jenny is not (or is she?)! And does Jenny feel the same for Prem? Or does she love someone else?
Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is a different entertainer, esp in terms of storytelling and execution. Every More >
