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.Yash Pandit and Amruta Mane
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 More >

Rahul Mahajan’s second wife, Kolkata model Dimpy Ganguly, left his Worli house in the early hours of Thursday after what she has described as a night of violent abuse.
Mumbai Mirror met up with Dimpy at Dadar on Thursday, just hours after she left Rahul’s house vowing never to return. There were bruises on her shin, right and left hand, while her left cheek was swollen. There was also a lump on her head.Dimpy Ganguly (from left) shows a bruise on her leg and one on her arm; (right) with her cousin Dipankar Roy
Dimpy said Rahul beat her up early on Thursday morning after waking her up to know the contents of a message that had just beeped on her phone. Since the phone had the key-pad lock on, Rahul was unable to operate it.
When Dimpy asked him to let her sleep, he flew into a rage and began hitting her. She said he punched, kicked and dragged her by her hair.
When she could not take it any more, Dimpy pushed him, picked up her phone, ran down the stairs and hid in the passageway. This was 3.30 am. Dimpy then called a friend, who picked her up around 4 am.
Her father arrived at Rahul’s house at 4 pm after she related the incident to him over the phone. That’s when she returned to the house, packed her bags and left.
When contacted, Rahul denied he hit Dimpy. “It is not true at all. I just More >
Though veteran actor Om Puri and his wife Nandita were recently seen together at the Jaipur Literature Festival, walking around hand in hand, reliable sources close to the couple reveal their 16-year-old marriage is on the rocks.
Evidently the couple has been having problems for some time but the last straw was the sexually explicit revelations made by Nandita in her biography of her husband, Unlikely Hero: Om Puri.
The references to Puri’s many sexual relationships, especially with his maid and caretaker, became a key talking point for the media, and the actor and his biographer wife had a very public and bitter spat over it. However, at the subsequent launch events, the Puris literally kissed and made up in public.
Close friends, however, say the people named in the biography were not at all amused by their names being dragged through the muck and Puri has had to shell out a pretty penny to settle with them. In fact, in an interview to a website, Om Puri confessed that some of his college friends were upset at the revelations about his early life in the book, and accused him of being publicity hungry. “This embarrassed me,” said the actor.
Another bone of contention is that Puri’s first wife Seema Kapoor, who he was in love with for a long time before marrying her and who was a huge support during his turbulent early days, has not been mentioned in the More >

Today when there are well above 250 films releasing every year in Bollywood, finding a unique concept can be a task, and every now and then, there are claims of copyright infringement being made. The latest film blamed for copyright infringement is Veer, and the makers of the film are accused of lifting some concepts from a certain book without any approval from its author.
The Salman Khan starrer that released recently has been dragged to court for copyright violation by author Pavan Choudary. The plaintiff claims that the idea and concept that India should not be a ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ but ‘Baaj’ (hawk) has almost been identically copied and adapted from his book ‘Trilogy of Wisdom’ and that the makers of Veer are using the same for their commercial gains.
Justice V. K. Shali of Delhi High Court has since asked actor Salman Khan, the film’s producers and also director Anil Sharma to file their response on the allegation levelled by author Pavan Choudary, who has sought damages of Rs. 20 lakh from them. The author also pleaded that the court should stay the screening of the film.
