…says actor Yash Pandit after bashing up model girlfriend in nightclub. After slapping his companion and dragging her out by her hair, Yash Pandit claimed he was merely trying to take her home. The battered model says they were simply very drunk
Beating up girlfriends and creating ruckus at public places is not just the ‘privilege’ of Bollywood A-listers. Some of the strugglers can give the big boys a huge run for their money. Around 2.45 am on Saturday at Aurus restaurant in Juhu, an argument between TV actor Yash Pandit, who also has a few forgettable movies to his name, and his model girlfriend Amruta Mane turned violent to such an extent that the place came to a standstill.
The restaurant bouncers got involved and cops were called in. But then, in a typical Bollywood style happy ending, the duo kissed and made up.

The drama began after Yash began screaming at Amruta, asking her to leave the place. Onlookers said both of them were heavily drunk, and so were around five of their friends. After a bout of yelling at each other, Yash slapped Amruta, who screamed back in rage. Abusing incessantly, Yash caught Amruta by the back of her head, twisted her arm and began dragging her out of the restaurant.
Eyewitnesses said Amruta too was hurling abuses at Yash on top of her voice and refused to leave. In a matter of 15 minutes, Yash must have slapped Amruta at least 15 times, onlookers said. At this stage, the restaurant bouncers stopped Yash and asked him to leave the place. Suddenly, freeing herself from his clutches, Amruta stormed out of the restaurant and sat in autorickshaw. This only enraged Yash further and he began dragging her out of the vehicle, onlookers said.
The fight was now taking place in full public view, on the pavement. An abusive Yash pushing his friends who were trying to pull him away, a hysteric Amruta crying for help. The restaurant minders, worried that the incident could have serious repercussions, tried to persuade Yash to leave, while one of the patrons dialled the cops.

Senior Inspector Madhukar Chaudhary from Santacruz Police Station confirmed his team did reach the spot where the couple were fighting. He said, “The girl refused to file a complaint. Since it was an internal dispute, we did not pursue the matter but our men did warn the couple to refrain from creating a scene.”
On Sunday, Amruta defended Yash and took the entire blame on herself. She said, “My mom wanted me back home as it was well past 2 am. I was drunk and she called Yash, who was only trying to help me.” And what about the thrashing he gave you, we asked Amruta. “No thrashing. He just grabbed my arm and later took me home. We are very much together. Yash was just being nice and trying to help me.”
Yash said he was not drunk, nor did he hit Amruta. “It was my duty as a man to take her home. Her mother was so worried, I was only trying to help,” he said. There were also reports of Amruta getting close to another guy in their group that enraged Yash. Both of them rubbished the claim. “I wasn’t getting close to anyone. Yash was supposed to drop me home, we were too drunk. That was it. We have apologised to each other and all’s well between us.”
WHO IS YASH PANDIT
Yash Pandit played Johnny in the comedy flick Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai, released in 2002. His most prominent role was in Sunny Deol starrer Rok Sako To Rok Lo, released in 2004. He played Siddharth in TV serial Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann, aired on Zee TV, and also appeared Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
He is currently seen in TV serial Hum Dono Hain Alag Alag on Star One. Amruta has appeared in a few commercials, and is trying to get a foothold in Bollywood.
His “17-flop Guinness Book of World Records” quip at MAMI was merely a joke, he says
Three days ago, Prahlad Kakkar’s statement against Abhishek Bachchan at MAMI was the talk of the town. Kakkar, when attacking Bollywood’s nepotism, cited Abhishek Bachchan, saying, “Abhishek Bachchan has 17 flops in a row and is still going strong. He is unique and should be in the Guinness Book of Records.”
By evening on the same day, Abhishek had already retaliated to this bitterly via his tweet: “I love Prahlad Kakkar; he should be a stand-up comic not an ad-filmmaker. Maybe then someone will take him seriously! This coming from a man who makes commercials with his own son. Hmmm. Oh ya, Prahlad, I’m already in the Guinness book of world records and a very proud son. I hope you give your sons an opportunity to say the same someday.”
|Prahlad Kakkar||Abhishek Bachchan|
Kakkar’s outburst must have come as a big shock to the Bachchans since Kakkar has always had friendly relations with them, especially Aishwarya, with whom he shot many commercials in her early days.
Now, it turns out that Kakkar is in repentant mode, claiming that his comment was merely raillery and nothing vicious. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror last evening, the ad man said, “I am going to apologise to Abhishek.”
When we asked why, Kakkar nonchalantly said , “It was meant to be a joke. Abhishek is a very dear friend.”
Subah ka bhoola agar shaam ko ghar laut aaye, toh use bhoola nahin kehte. What say, Bachchan Jr?
The much-awaited MAMI festival got off to a bit of a false start, with an opening ceremony that left a lot to be desired
One cannot dispute the exemplary lineup of films at the Mumbai Film Festival (MAMI) this year, which holds much promise. The opening ceremony held on Thursday (October 21) at Chandan cinema, Juhu, was quite memorable, albeit in a different fashion from what was intended.
Starting late, as we all know, is a pardonable offence in India. What is not, are goof-ups. At the ceremony, these were aplenty: some bad, few outright unacceptable.
The acoustics of Chandan cinema were disgusting. Those sitting in the balcony where left stretching the human limit of their hearing. Two huge speakers in the two corners were silent, and the two below were good enough to carry sound only to those sitting below.
All this, however, did not deafen the audience enough for them to ignore some embarrassing bloopers.
Starlets Minissha Lamba and Prachi Desai proved themselves unworthy to host the event as they made an unpardonable mistake. After calling out the names of four members of the all-woman jury, they forgot the fifth: our very own Suhasini Maniratnam.
A barrage of apologies followed, but only after Academy Award winning president of the jury, Jane Campion, called out for Suhasini correcting the mistake made by the two hostesses. The smiling Mrs. Maniratnam not only forgave the oversight, but graciously made Yoon Jeong-Hee feel at home telling audiences how she and husband Mani Ratnam enjoyed her film Poetry at the Pusan film festival. Atithi Devo Bhava, as we say in India.
The only performance in the event, a loose dance-drama by a Mumbai-based dance troupe, proved to be an eyesore for the viewers with a cacophony of loud sounds and faltering steps. After their performance, Minishaa asked Prachi rhetorically, “Wasn’t it the most mesmerising show we have seen?” The crowd, especially the hard-of-hearing ones in the balcony comprising mostly cinema writers and critics, shouted out a loud ‘No’ unanimously. This had to be one of those rare occasions that the Indian critic was brutally honest.
Thankfully the opening film, the much-awaited The Social Network, began soon. Although for a few minutes a mysterious light shone on the screen and blurred the view amidst hooting from the disgruntled viewers, everything was soon forgotten under the spell of Aaron Sorkin’s masterful screenplay and David Fincher’s adept direction.
Despite a not-so-desirable opening, the festival would prove itself if the shows of the exemplary films selected are not ruined by such mishaps. Bloopers provide temporary comic relief but a festival is, after all, remembered by the films that were screened.

Ram Gopal Varma, who will surely go down in history as a lateral thinking director, is all gung ho about his recently released Rakht Charitra. But just like all his past films, this one had to come with its share of controversies. The new one being the protests carried out by Telugu Desam Party (TDP) asking the director to delete certain scenes that project former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N.T. Rama Rao in poor light in his film.
After the protestors took to the streets and even stopped screenings in certain theatres, that Varma, agreed to delete the scenes and dialogues that are deemed to be found objectionable.
Though Ramu felt that the people staging these protests were ones who hadn’t even seen the film, he did say that he himself was a big fan of the former CM and that if seen in a larger context of the film, one would grasp the essence of those scenes and dialogues in the film.
Protestors in Anantapur, Hindupur, Eluru, Visakhapatnam, Karimnagar and other towns gathered outside theatres, raised slogans against Varma and burnt his effigy. They demanded a ban on the movie.
Where TDP chief N. Chandraprabhu demanded that the director apologises, NTR’s second wife Lakshmi Parvathi also felt that the scenes were in bad taste. Family of Obul Reddy, one of the characters in the film also feels that even his own projection in the film isn’t right.
The film, based on the factional war between two families in Anantapur, is the talk of the town as the followers of both the families waited to see if their leaders are projected right and as heroes or villains.
Locals even had an issue with Varma using the name of the district in the film. They forced him to change it too Anandapuram.
With RGV giving into the demands of the protestors, one just hopes that the film goes on from here without any more hassles.
An enraged posse of mediapersons staged a walkout at a press conference recently because the couple arrived at the venue a good two hours late; Saif apologised
Bollywood and punctuality don’t go hand-in-hand. In fact, some stars consider being late even stylish. Arriving late at shoots, not making it in time to inaugurate events, is a done thing.
But recently, Saif Ali Khan and his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor were not spared for keeping the media waiting at an event. They were stuck in traffic, they claimed. But by then, it was too late.
On Monday evening, at a five-star hotel in Juhu, the media sat waiting for Saif and Kareena to arrive for a press conference on a brand of shoes they endorse.
The actors arrived at the venue two hours late. Never in their wildest dreams had they expected the entire media to walk out on them. All press people boycotted the event and walked out the moment the two lovebirds entered.
An eyewitness says, “The event was to start at 8 pm and the entire media had arrived a little before time. After waiting for a while, they asked the organisers of the event about the whereabouts of Saif and Kareena. They were told that the couple was on its way to the venue and should be arriving any time. But that never happened.”
Apparently, the media decided to boycott the event at 10 pm. While exiting, they saw Saif and Kareena enter but none of them waited for the couple. The eyewitness adds, “The media people were fuming by that time and they refused to stay back. Saif did apologise to them, explaining that they were stuck in traffic. But none of them understood why it took Saif and Kareena over two hours to reach Juhu from their Bandra residence. The distance can be covered in half an hour.”
Riddhi Walia, media relation manager of the event, adds another interesting insight into what happened, “Yes, the media did boycott the event. It was very unfortunate. Saif and Kareena were genuinely stuck in traffic and the media were constantly being updated about the same.
But one particular photographer, who had personal vendetta against them, instigated the entire media to leave.” Must be a popular photographer!
While Kareena remained unavailable for comment, Saif said, “Yes, we were late as we were stuck in crazy traffic due to visarjan. However, the most important part is that the event went off very well. The client was very happy and I am aware that certain press people were a little fed up, as we were late. But I apologise for that. I even apologised to the organisers. Sometimes one does get late in Mumbai traffic.”
If not the weatherman, blame it on the traffic cops.

“If anything so enamoured of hatred can be called a peace offering, then yes I’m releasing Rakht Charitra 2 on the same day (November 19) as Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish,” chuckles Ramu.
For the first time in his entire career as an outspoken critique of the Bollywood denizens, Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) has apologized to a fellow-filmmaker for offending him.
After posting a nasty comment on a social network on Guzaarish, Ramu realized he had gone too far this time and profusely apologized to Sanjay Leela Bhansali (SLB).
Ramu’s SMS to SLB reads, “I’m sorry if I offended you. I just have this habit of constantly saying something funny on Twitter about every happening out there. Most of the comments are on me. I make more comments on my own films than anybody else’s. I’ll take back my remark publicly asap. Sorry again.” SLB immediately chose to forgive and forgot and move on.
Uncharacteristically gracious on this occasion, one wonders what brought this generous spirit out of Ramu! Says the director, “I guess it’s the nervousness of my own release. I’ve never been more anxious about any of my films than Rakht Charitra.”
Ramu admits it is a violent film. “It does to the action genre what K3G did to the family film. But the violence is dictated by the theme. You can’t say it is excessively violent. The Telugu version was censored this week with just two minor cuts for Adults Only.”
Ramu will release the sequel to Rakht Charitra three weeks after the first part on November 19 on the same Friday as Guzaarish.
Declares Ramu, “I’m hoping that Sanjay Bhansali, Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya won’t kick brush my film’s teeth. On a more serious note, they’re two completely different genres. Guzaarish is about love. Rakht Charitra is about hate.”
That one stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the other Vivek Oberoi is purely coincidental.
That, says Rekha, is her biggest catwalk of fame these days
Mark Manuel | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; October 19, 2010)
I owe her an apology. This interview was done long ago. Much before her birthday. Or her last film, Sadiyan, released and sank at the box-office. Ahead of the rains. Even earlier than she got the Padma Shri. But it never got written. Months ago, we spoke at the health club of a suburban five star where Rekha religiously works out every evening. “Sundays included,” she told me over a cup of herbal tea. The tea was awful, but she was on her second cup. And, at whatever her age, from reaching out and touching distance she looked like the proverbial million dollars. Still. Even in baggy tracks and sweaty tee. Perhaps, it was the workout. “I’m not into heavy duty stuff. I listen to me in everything I do,” she said. “No weights but freehand exercises. I do yoga and also cardio. And in between, I dance, stretch myself, there’s no set rules. That applies to my life as well. It’s important to utilize every bit of your being. Not on a daily basis. I try to on a second basis. But time doesn’t exist in my life. When you savour and relish every moment, then you learn the art of preserving yourself. I don’t use or overabuse myself, don’t do drugs, I eat simple vegetarian food, my mind is not polluted, my mother’s values are imbedded in me. I’m a perceptive person. I know what’s good and I don’t venture into what’s not good. I’ve discovered my own khazana. Everybody should. Before you realise it, life goes by. For me, every day is a rebirth.”
I had gone not to talk about films, because Rekha isn’t active in Bollywood anymore, but to find out how she survived. And kept the world’s interest in her alive. Was she lonely? Did she miss the fame of the screen? Wasn’t she afraid of old age, illness? Yes, she’s known for claiming that she’s God chosen one. But even God’s chosen one has to pay bills. “Survive,” she asked imperiously. “I’m not a survivor. I live life to the fullest. But I’m a loner. I don’t network or meet people. It’s tacky for a person to talk about herself. For me, luxury is all about my privilege… to meet who I want, where I want, when I want. And how much do you really need? Life is high maintenance the more you acquire. I’m happy with little things that I can take care of, value, and put to use. I rarely do movies. In fact, I’ve got to remind myself that I’m an actor. Time was when I was zero in the bank. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve saved for a rainy day. All the jewellery I have is my Amma’s stuff. It’s been around 40 years. Just a few sets. But I’m very creative. I wear it differently. Clothes, I mix and match. Twenty years ago I collected a lot of designer wear. Now it’s absurdly expensive. Depending on who’s wearing it, it’s entirely possible to match a tee bought off the road in Europe with something from D&G. I don’t go on dates, I don’t attend parties, visit exotic spas, so what do I have to dress up for? My ultimate dressing is for ghar se airport tak… that’s my biggest catwalk. Sounds pathetic? But that’s my secret!” The secrets were tumbling out. This was Rekha unplugged. And, maybe on an OD of adrenaline from her workout, she was talking uninhibited and from the heart, grateful to be in the moment. Of course, she is offered films, ads, reality shows, her own TV show, she’s invited to dance at weddings for cash. All of which everybody in Bollywood is doing. “I know what I want to say and when I do it – I’ll do it, but I don’t know when,” she said about television. “I never thought I’d last four decades in the film industry and do the things I’m doing now. Whatever is in store for me will happen. God chose to make me a woman. I’m privileged. Women have a lot more interesting experiences than men. Good, bad and ugly, perhaps not many more, but certainly more indepth and intense, because as women we take it all too much to heart. I chose to be single. Everything is my choice. But I’m far too evolved than to my liking. Reality is not what is shown on TV. Life is what happens in between when you’re planning what you want to do. What is scripted is not reality. Old age, illness don’t scare me. What is there to be afraid of ? Don’t waste a single second worrying about what is not in your hands. Just as you didn’t know when you were in the embryo stage, you won’t know when you’re dying. So, you see, I’m living life. Not surviving. Or fighting it. I never read newspapers but don’t miss a thing about what’s happening in Bollywood. I don’t use a cell phone because for me luxury is not being on a leash. I enjoy gardening though I don’t have a green thumb. I write poetry, paint, do charcoal sketches… anything else you want to know?” I did: what would she like to see on her gravestone? “…That she made me smile,” Rekha said. And smiled, finally.
Though Aamir Khan tried to play peacemaker, Resul Pookutty is at war with a multiplex for botching up the screening of Rajni’s hit
It’s ironic that at a screening of Robot, of all things, the machines failed to work. Rajnikanth’s power show for his film at a suburban multiplex was full of glitches. And the sound editor of the film, Resul Pookutty, was certainly not amused.
Dissatisfied with the sound quality three hours prior to the show, Resul had voiced his discomfort too. But apparently, the theatre officials paid no heed and started the show. Sure enough, the sound crashed in the second half of the film, which had to be stalled as a result for over 30 minutes. Pookutty was livid with the organisers and only on Aamir Khan’s insistence was he pacified.
He felt that what happened on Monday night was unfortunate and symptomatic of how theatre owners are lackadaisical about the technical finesse involved in screening films. Said Pookutty, “We had a show for the biggest people in the industry but the sound quality was so inferior. I spent 45 days to design the sound of the film and this is the result we got. If this happens in the presence of the cream of the industry what must the common man be going through? This is like Husain making a classic painting and somebody throwing ink all over it.”
Pookutty feels that theatre owners are only interested in making their money and nothing else. “All our hard work goes down the drain. I hope that the government makes certain guidelines for the exhibition sector of our film industry, or else their licenses should be cancelled. I believe that every viewer who spends money to watch a film should get the best and nothing less than that. The Robot show was a blatant example of the entire system and the problems in it.”
Aamir Khan played truce-maker and the film was thus screened after this forced interval. Pookutty added, “I had predicated that something would go wrong. The sound was blown up and then we had to do a lot of damage control. We apologised to the invitees.”
For justice in the wake of this humiliation, Pookutty has drafted a letter to the Indian Motion Pictures and Producers’ Association. “I hope that the association, which is also aware of this, does something about it. I feel angry and humiliated at what is happening and I will continue my struggle to get these things sorted out,” he concluded.
Resul Pookutty to file RTI against multiplexes for poor sound & picture quality
By Subhash K. Jha, October 6, 2010 – 10:59 IST
On Monday evening, Rajinikanth’s warm and unparalleled gesture of bringing Robot to Mumbai personally for a special screening before his Bollywood friends, culminated in a horrendous mess with the sound being completely disrupted in the 7th reel, leading to a long and embarrassing and unscheduled break just before the crucial climax of the film.
The screening, it might be mentioned was, was leading man Rajinikanth and director Shankar’s belated but critical attempt to familiarize Bollywood’s who’s-who with Robot which had already swept the nation. Its disruption has hurt the film’s crew in both emotional and more practical ways.
And now heads will roll. The team behind Robot plans to sue the chain of theatres and also approach the government to specify quality-control methods to check sound systems in the multiplexes of Mumbai.
Speaking about the evening’s nightmarish, fiasco Robot’s bitterly disappointed enraged and now redressal-seeking sound designer Resul Pookutty says, “From the start of the screening I knew there was something seriously wrong. Then I came to know three sets of speakers were not working. I was so upset that I immediately wanted to stop the screening. But Aamir Khan pacified me, explaining it would look very improper in front of all these stalwarts to stop the show.”
Then Resul’s worst fears came true. “After seven reels with 40 minutes of playing-time to go, the sound collapsed completely. It was a nightmare. When finally the screening was restored the sound was worst than before. It was one of the most humiliating evenings of my life. I haven’t slept the whole night. And now I won’t sleep until I receive justice on behalf of all the technicians of Indian cinema, not to mention the average patron who is not aware of the deplorable standards of sound and projection provided by almost all the multiplex chains in Mumbai.”
The disappointment and sense of betrayal is so enormous that Resul chokes with emotion while talking. “We (the Robot core crew) had decided on the show after seeing the impact it had made in the South. Down there I have fought a relentless battle to change the sound quality in theatres. And now patrons in the South are so conscious of their rights to get optimum-quality sound and visual value that in Kerala, audiences broke seats and disrupted screenings at theatres with sub-standard technical value.”
Resul wants to create the same value-awareness among audiences in Mumbai, and a critical step ahead in his fight against sub-standard projection and sound in Mumbai’s multiplexes is an RTI being filed before the government.
Says Resul, “After that evening’s experience I have already approached the IMPPA (Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association) on behalf of the sound association of the Indian film industry. I’m next filing an RTI (Right To Information) with the government seeking to know what are the yardsticks applied before multiplexes are granted licences for operation. Are sound and projection quality a part of the licensing checks?”
Resul won’t sit easy until the matter is resolved. “After Slumdog Millionaire and the national and international awards, I at least have voice about sound in our movie theatres. While in South India the sound-quality in theatres has been drastically upgraded, in the North I am sorry to say theatres continue to use an inferior technical infrastructure. Sometimes smuggled machines are employed. I’ve often bribed projectionists to do their jobs better. During Black, Sanjay Bhansali and I went personally from theatre to theatre to check the sound. What we discovered was shocking. Does the average patron who pays Rs.150 for a ticket know how he’s being cheated? This is why I’m filing an RTI with the government.”
Legal action against the multiplex chain that was behind the Robot team’s shame on Monday evening is also being taken.
Says Resul, “We were already fighting an intense battle against the quality of visuals and sound provided by the multiplexes. After being so humiliated and shamed in front of the film industry on Monday evening, it’s an all-out battle for our rights and the rights of the cinema-going audience. Actually what happened on Monday evening was a shame not just for the Robot team but the entire Indian movie industry.”

He then addressed everyone and showered all his good wishes, great luck to them for their movie and wished that the movie is a big Hit just like the big ticket given to him.

When asked whether he would be inviting Salman to his wedding this October, Vivek Oberoi walked out
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; September 18, 2010)
Vivek Oberoi left a TV reporter stranded midway during an interview and stormed out of the club, which was the venue for the interview, in a huff. The reason: Vivek did not appreciate the reporter asking him if he would invite Salman Khan for his forthcoming wedding (Vivek is to wed Priyanka Alva on October 29, 2010).
Explaining what exactly transpired, an eyewitness told Mumbai Mirror, “Yesterday, Vivek had a few interviews lined up for Ram Gopal Varma’s forthcoming film Rakta Charitra.
The actor was very exited about the interview session, which was to extend over two hours. Vivek even came dressed like the character from the film, Paritala Ravi; he wore the same black kurta he wears in most scenes of the actual feature.”
Added the witness, “During her array of questions, the reporter asked Vivek if he plans to invite Salman for his wedding.
Vivek stepped out of the frame and his entourage requested the reporter to shut the camera. The reporter did as she was told.
Vivek demanded that the reporter should apologise to him since she had caught him off-guard. The reporter argued that this was a very natural question since his wedding is round the corner, and in the recent past Vivek had no issues talking about Salman. So why now suddenly behave so differently? The reporter asked her crew to pack up, but did not apologise. Meanwhile, Vivek left the premises.”
However, another witness had another perspective. “Vivek shouldn’t have stormed out. There were channels which were supposed to interview him after that. His wig-out led to those two interviews being cancelled.
He could have merely said that he doesn’t want to answer that particular question about his wedding. The reporter in question was just doing her duty,” said the other source.
FENIL SETA’S VIEWS:
Dont know how much of this article is true. But the last line, “The reporter in question was just doing her duty” doesnt make sense. It is obvious that if interviewer asks that whether Vivek plans to invite Salman for his wedding, Vivek isnt going to answer that he will be inviting the superstar. While Vivek’s behaviour wasnt justified too, the journalists need to be responsible while asking questions and see to it that they dont cross their limits.
