On spotting a co-passenger taking pictures of his former girlfriend, Ranveer Singh lost his temper
Not too long ago, Anushka Sharma parted ways with boyfriend Ranveer Singh. Cest la vie, life moved on. And turns out, Ranveer will soon be launched with Anushka in Yash Raj’s next Band Baaja Baaraat.
But this article won’t work wonders for his image. Recently, Ranveer got into a scuffle with a co-passenger on a flight from Mumbai to Delhi and the fight got violent.
Though the Delhi Police insist that no formal complaint was lodged, Ranveer was indeed present at the police station outside IGI Domestic Airport for over an hour and a half.
An eyewitness reveals, “Ranveer and Anuskha were flying business class to Delhi for promoting their movie. Ranveer suddenly spotted his co-passenger clicking pictures of Anushka. Ranveer got angry and a heated argument with the passenger followed. Things got sorted out when the cabin crew intervened. Just before landing, the captain asked the ground staff to arrange for security.”
Apparently, when transport was ararnged for the passengers to reach the terminal, Ranveer’s co-passenger requested the ground staff for a separate vehicle, saying he did not want to travel with Ranveer. That’s when Ranveer walked up to him and said, “Tu jaanta nahi mein kiska beta hoon”, until the staff intervened and took them away.”
The eyewitness adds, “Both of them went to the police station to lodge a complaint. In the meantime, a few calls were made and Ranveer’s car arrived to take him away.”
Confirming the story, the official spokesperson for Yash Raj said, “The matter now has been sorted out amicably and no complaints have been lodged.”
According to Inspector Suresh Chand Verma, Domestic Airport Police Station, Palam, Ranveer Singh and Uday Sahay (a 30-year-old, employed with a MNC) came to their police station to register a complaint. We have not lodged any complaint.”
Verma discounted any possibilities of a fistfight between Ranveer and Uday. “If there was any physical evidence we would first of all have put both the actor and Uday through medical test. Ranveer Singh is no star. He is no Ranbir Kapoor. Law will be equal for everyone.”
Anushka Sharma is single again. She has parted ways with her boyfriend, actor Ranveer Singh from Yash Raj’s forthcoming film Band Baaja Baarat. The two actors were dating since April this year.
Says a source, “Anushka and Ranveer felt that they should concentrate on their careers now. Any distractions whatsoever could prove detrimental. It was a mutual decision. There is no animosity between the two.”

Added the source, “The couple had been catching up for private dinners and outings, even though Ranveer has been given strict instructions by Yash Raj to lie low and not make any public appearances.
They were very much attracted to each other-but all that is now a thing of the past.”
Anushka remained unavailable for comment. Think of it, she never admitted to Ranveer being her boyfriend. When a scribe quizzed her about Ranveer, she freaked out saying, “Don’t you guys ever hang out with your colleagues? Does that mean you are dating them?” Before Ranveer, Anushka was linked with Shahid Kapoor, her co-actor in Badmaash Company, another Yash Raj Film. Come on Anushka, pyaar kiya to darna kya.
After their fallout in 2007 and a recent patch up, Nikhil Advani is making extra efforts to get back in the Karan Johar camp
After working on Kal Ho Na Ho (2003) with Karan Johar, director Nikhil Advani went on to make Salaam-E-Ishq (2007) with another producer. Karan was left high and dry and was hence upset with him.
The two were not talking to each other for a long time until they finally patched up. Karan then directed the mahurat shot of Nikhil’s next, Patiala House.
The latest is that Nikhil has now decided to tread very cautiously with his mentor Karan. With his last film Chandni Chowk To China (2009) having bombed at the box office, Nikhil wants to show Patiala House to Karan, in the hope of criticism. The film is almost ready and stars Akshay Kumar and Anoushka Sharma. And Nikhil wants to ensure all goes well with the film.
So, a few days ago, Nikhil showed at least a good half hour of Patiala House to Karan Johar. The meeting took place at Karan’s Dharma Productions office in Khar.
When contacted, Nikhil confirmed and said, “Yes, I did show parts of Patiala House to Karan. He saw them at his office.”
As for constructive criticism, Karan loved Anoushka’s look in the film, Nikhil told us. He added, “Karan also felt that there is some very good drama in the film and Akshay has delivered a very fine performance.”
Bygones are indeed bygones now. Nikhil added, “We had a misunderstanding in the past. We are reconnecting big time now.” Good decision, Nikhil. Who knows, kal ho na ho…

Anushka Sharma, who made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, would be seen on the big screen yet again in Band Baaja Baaraat. This fun flick coming from the house of ‘Yash Raj Films’ releases all over on 10th December. However, call it sheer coincidence or a part of the plan but the fact remains that history would be repeating itself for the pretty girl. This is because Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi too had come around the same time when it released on 12th December 2008.
Says a trade observer, “This should be one lucky coincidence for the makers and Anushka here. After all Anushka has been enjoying a good innings so far in Bollywood. Her first film was a blockbuster while Badmaash Company, which was again a YRF production and had released earlier this year, was also an average success. She would well be looking at making a hat trick with Band Baaja Baaraat.”
While one looks forward to that happening, here is a hitch. While in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Badmaash Company she had Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor respectively to spearhead the show, in case of Band Baaja Baaraat she has (ironically) turned out to be the senior-most of the lot.
“That’s right”, continues the trade observer, “This time around, it appears to be Anushka all the way. Director Maneesh Sharma is a first timer though he was an Associate Director on Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. As for her leading man Ranveer Singh, he is a complete fresher with no modelling or acting experience. However, he managed to impress Aditya Chopra and hence he was on board without much ado.”
Still, one can’t help but wonder about the sudden release announcement of Band Baaja Baaraat. While the production house always had year end target in mind for the release of their fourth film this year (after Pyaar Impossible, Badmaash Company and Lafangey Parindey), 10th December arrival means that it would be stepping into an already cluttered season.
Starting this Friday, there is at least one biggie arriving practically every week. In fact there are also weeks when more than a couple of big films are anyways clashing with each other. In the month of December itself, there are confirmed plans for Ashutosh Gowariker’s Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Anees Bazmee’s No Problem and Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan to arrive.
“Well, the situation is still better in December when compared to October, November or January’11″, argues a trade expert, “December still has a reasonable breathing space. There was no point in even thinking of January since there is already a huge volume of releases in the form of No One Killed Jessica, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji, Game and Saat Khoon Maaf. It’s better to arrive in a relatively opened up space in December. One now just hopes that there is not much spill-over of movies from October and November though.”
Meanwhile Anushka can expect her lucky charm of the month of December to come handy yet again!

Yash Raj Films’ next Band Baajaa Baaraat starring Anushka Sharma and debutant Ranveer Singh is all set for release on December 10th this year. The film is produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by newcomer Maneesh Sharma (who was an Associate Director on Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi). The music has been composed by talented duo Salim-Sulaiman.
Debutant Ranveer Singh, a complete fresher with no modelling or acting experience, was selected after his very first audition, having impressed Aditya Chopra instantly.
Band Baajaa Baaraat is the story of Shruti (Anushka) and Bittoo (Ranveer) who are just out of Delhi University. A chance and inopportune meeting brings them together to reluctantly start a tumultuous entrepreneurial venture as Wedding Planners. Their business enters the ups and downs of the lavish world of the glamour and glitz of Delhi baaraats and weddings that will test their friendship over time.
This is Anushka’s third film with YRF after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Badmaash Company.

While Nikhil Advani is super busy with his Akshay-Anushka starrer Patiala House, the director faced a tragedy when his Bandra office was reportedly burgled on Saturday.
Apparently, the contents that have been stolen consist of a laptop and two cameras worth Rs. 1.12-lakh. A complaint that had been lodged with the Bandra police station points at an 18 year old boy named Abdhullah Shaikh as the main accused.
Nikhil Advani remained unavailable to comment.
Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor have all refused The Italian Job. Abbas-Mustan are wondering why casting women has been so tough
Abbas Mustan’s The Italian Job has run into trouble yet again. The film is said to have a male-dominated cast and has Abhishek Bachchan playing one of the lead roles, apart from Neil Nitin Mukesh, Omi Vaidya and others.
After Katrina Kaif walked out of the film ostensibly because she was not too happy with the script, Sonam followed her footsteps. However, Sonam’s reason for quitting the film is different; Pankaj Kapur told her to concentrate on Mausam and that is why Sonam chose to quit The Italian Job.
The latest development is that even Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have refused to come on board. “The reason is that the role is not exciting enough for the female actors,” says a source close to the film.
We hear, that even Kareena Kapoor had refused a role in the film. While one may assume that she too wasn’t excited about the role, there could be another angle to her refusal. She may hav been reluctant to work with Abhishek. But a source close to Kareena says, “In fact, Bebo was the first choice.”
The film sure seems jinxed with casting its ladies but apparently Abbas-Mustan are now in advance talks with Anushka Sharma. What say, Anushka?

While the promos of Yash Raj Films’ next big release Lafangey Parindey is on in full swing, the production house is also busy with its forthcoming film starring Anushka Sharma and newcomer Ranveer Singh. The untitled film tells the story of two just out of Delhi University students, Shruti (Anushka Sharma) and Bittoo (Ranveer Singh) who reluctantly set out on their tumultuous entrepreneurial venture. Together their friendship and business enters the ups and downs of the lavish world of the glamour and glitz of Delhi baaraats and weddings!
There have been a lot of speculation doing the rounds on the title of the film with the latest being that the film is titled Band Baajaa Baaraat. When we got in touch with Rafiq Gangjee, VP, Marketing and Communications at YRF, he said, “This is one of the titles being strongly considered for the film. We will be taking a final decision by the end of this week.”
