Hearing Zayed Khan talk is a revelation. I mean, this man doesn’t have to try too hard. He isn’t making up stories and he isn’t talking bull****. Zayed Khan the actor loses himself in every role – thus the consequences – He’s a flirt and women love him and that makes him the ‘most hunted’. Then looking at his body language you can surely debate that he is some kind of a messiah who’s been sent on the planet for some reason. The slack, smiling mouth was made for pulling on beers and backseat snogging, which ?ts his prom-king manner of speech: a rugged tumble of casual phrasing. He exudes the effortlessness that got him here – an all-star’s easy lope from obscurity to fame. And yet he knows what he has got, and he’s happy to share; in the middle of conversation, almost as a gift, Zayed will spring up a surprise. He will sip his coffee, as if treating you to his most prized possessions: the women he is surrounded by in his world. UK’s Harrow Observer columnist and Bollywood Hungama‘s London correspondent brings you Zayed Khan on women, more women and his cute little baby boy Zidane, who too, is walking in his father’s footsteps. Presenting you Part 2 special of Love Breakups Zindagi, Zayed style!

It’s not Salman she’s waiting for. She’s in love with Ranbir and will forgive him his flirtations as long as he mends his ways
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; March 24, 2011)
Katrina Kaif’s got the jawaani and she’s got the hits. What more can an actress ask for? Love, actually.
A close friend says the heartthrob of millions has been rather lovelorn since her ajab prem ki ghazab kahani with Ranbir Kapoor hit rough weather. While there’s been talk of her getting back with boyfriend of many years Salman Khan, the one she would actually consider returning to is Saawariya Ranbir.
A friend said she was still in love with him and willing to take him back as long as he mends his flirtatious ways.
Ranbir has been linked with Rockstar heroine Nargis Fakhri and is now warming up to Anushka Sharma of Band Bajaa Baaraat fame. The source said, “He’s been socialising with both the newcomers too frequently in the recent past for comfort. This has not gone down well with Katrina”.
Kat and Ranbir were a couple for over a year even though they did not admit to it, sources close to both said. They fell apart after talk of his philandering refused to die down. “These transient attractions are common in Bollywood. But they can’t go on forever.
The boy has to mend his ways. If he does, she’s still committed enough to take him back. Her feelings for him are genuine,” the source added.
And what of her renewing her relationship with Salman Khan? “Katrina and Salman parted More >
That all his girlfriends supposedly make good use of him and then dump him…

After the Sanjay Dutt-Bipasha Basu starrer Lamhaa turned out to be a box-office turkey, producer Bunty Walia has suffered another blow.
Model-actress Debi Dutta, who was dating him for two years, has now left him. They parted ways three weeks ago.Bunty Walia with Debi
Walia, the head honcho of G S Entertainment, was apparently quite in love with Debi, who was seen as a childhood friend of Ranbir Kapoor’s in Rocket Singh: Salesman of The Year.
Says a source, “Bunty and Debi were very happy. She had even moved in with him. They were very open about their relationship and would often pose for photographers at parties. But they started fighting three months ago and Debi walked out.”
But don’t take this as a typical ‘they grew apart’ kind of love story; it’s a more Bollywood one.
Grapevine has it that Debi was waiting for the day when Walia would launch her as a heroine in films. But Walia, they say, didn’t want to launch her in a project that he wasn’t really sure would benefit her.
But considering Lamhaa only ‘momentarily’ benefited its actors (if at all, because Kashmir is indeed beautiful), Debi soon started feeling her needs were not being met - unfortunately, the comforts Walia provided her with, including his personal car, did not qualify as needs.
We hear, Debi is now talking to other filmmakers for a role. When More >
Ali Zafar, who has bagged a nomination for best debut, tells us why a section of Pakistan is averse to his Indian ambitions

How has life changed post Tere Bin Laden?
I wrote an email to my director Abhishek Sharma stating that he has completely changed my life and for the better.
Was Bollywood always on your mind?
Like everyone else I also grew up watching Dilip saab and Mr. Bachchan’s films and later on Aamir and Salman and Shah Rukh Khan. I started as a model and also did TV shows but didn’t enjoy acting then. After that I got busy with my music albums. Then I wanted to do something bigger and better so I came to Bollywood.
We keep hearing about the rift between Imran and you?
Whenever I read such stories I call up Imran and ask him what’s happening. He says, ‘don’t worry people try and create rift between actors, don’t take it seriously.’ We have a very good relationship. We went out partying recently.
You didn’t come for his wedding?
My brother-in-law was getting married the same day. In fact, I just got a text from Kiran (Rao). She is hosting a party for Imran and Avantika’s wedding.
You were experiencing a lot of visa issues.
Not at all. I have a multiple entry visa. Normally it takes 40 days to renew it. I am thankful that the officers grant me the visa pretty quickly.
Do you see yourself shifting base to India?
Ali: I don’t know. The decision depends on policies.

Talk about dropping hints and Anushka Sharma takes the cake. In recent media interviews on her relationship status with Ranveer Singh, the coy actress gives umpteen hints about her fondness for him without actually admitting that she is serious about her Band Baaja Baaraat co-star. Even as their relationship has become the talk of town.
When BT pointedly asked her to explain if the two stars were seeing each other, Anushka replied, “I’m very fond of Ranveer and we are very comfortable with each other… but I can’t answer your question, because then people will start asking about marriage and the media will report any differences creeping in us or if we are caught flirting with other people. I can’t confirm if I’m seeing Ranveer. But I’m not denying it too.” There is also the belief that the actress, who is riding high with hits and critical acclaim but is yet underated by the industry, wants people to notice her acting and doesn’t want to attract attention because of her relationship.
An aspiring actor and director Onir of My Brother Nikhil fame in a face-off over an intimate encounter that brings the industry’s taboo subject out in the open
Bharati Dubey (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 15, 2011)
One of the seldom-discussed aspects of the film industry’s casting couch syndrome is the exploitation of young men by a clique of powerful men who are gay. But in a first, an aspiring young actor, who recently acted in a film based on the theme of homosexual love, has alleged that he was molested by film director Onir.
It’s a charge the director forcefully denies, giving compelling reasons to suggest that his encounter with the actor was by mutual consent.
However, the nature of this public allegation has created a stir in scandal-saturated Bollywood. Largely this is due to Onir’s reputation as a filmmaker of sensitive films like My Brother Nikhil, Bas Ek Pal and Sorry Bhai. He is also one of the few directors who are out in an industry that is surprisingly coy on the subject.
Ranged against him is a 28-year-old struggling actor Yuvraj Parashar from Agra. Parashar got his break in a recently-released film Dunno Y Naa Jaane Kyun which strangely featured the likes of Zeenat Aman and had Lata Mangeshkar warbling its title song, Dunnowhy…naajaanekuuu. Indeed! The film was a box-office fiasco.Film director Onir; (right) aspiring actor Yuvraj Parashar
Undaunted by that Parashar decided to show his work to directors like Onir and More >
Ajay and Emraan talk of emotions and temptations
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; January 11, 2011)
In their last outing, Milan Luthria’s Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai — one of the biggest hits of 2010, intense lover-boy Ajay Devgn and serial-kisser Emraan Hashmi rocked. Different as they are in acting styles, looks and screen mannerisms, these actors portrayed their ‘screen lover act’ with precision. Ajay was his brooding self, making women go weak-kneed with just the flip of his eyelids and the passion in those searing dark eyes; Emraan was the louder, more robust lover, using his physicality to convey his feelings. The outcome was terrific. Both men managed to strike goals in their individualistic style.
Guess what, now they’re back in Madhur Bhandarkar and Kumar Mangat Pathak’s naughty comedy Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji releasing on January 28.
Says a trade consultant, “This time the magic will be a little different. Ajay and Emraan play lovers with a difference, but the bottom line is that they’re both men seeking love, who’ll do anything to keep that emotion alive.’’ According to trade circles, DTBHJ is a film that is targeted at the youth. Distributors feel that while the 18-25 year old target group is keen to check out this slice-of-life romantic comedy with an interesting babe quotient (three hot girls), there is also tremendous curiosity about this film in the 25-40 age bracket because each of the heroes is giving his own love More >
Veena Malik says what she is like on TV,is what she is like in life – hot and seductive!
Prithwish Ganguly | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; December 26, 2010)
Pakistani hottie Veena Malik is not scared to go back to her country,which is known to be conservative towards how women should behave in public,even after her bold display of flirting (sometimes physically) with multiple men and sexy dance moves on the Indian reality TV show. Veena says, “It is my country and I have to be there. I do a lot of work there and it is true that I got life threats from people. But that wont deter me. I’m going to Pakistan despite all this.”
She says that many women in Pakistan are like her and they, too, dont feel shy to be themselves. “The way you have seen me in Bigg Boss is just the way I’m in real life. And I know many women in Pakistan who, like me, live for the moment and have fun,” she shoots. But was she over exposing and being extra seductive to grab attention? “I know that I’m hot and sexy and I get attention, but what can I do? I wasnt trying to do anything. It was just me,” she retorts.
Ask her if she has found love in India and she replies, “I’m a worshipper of beauty. I will always say if I like how someone is looking – girl or boy. I find Hrishant (Goswami) very good looking and Ashmit is a gem of a person. I’m very fond of him. He is battling thalassemia and I care for him. I’m the ambassador of an association that works towards thalassemia More >

Katrina (Sheila) Kaif might be flying high with her latest item number rocking the charts and having a Barbie doll dedicated to her. But seems like she’s sure going to face some tough competition from another hottie this Christmas eve. It’s none other than Loveena – the Miss Toonpur!
‘Loveena’ is the most popular damsel in Toonpur – she’s hot, sexy and can drive you crazy with her ‘adaas’. She is also a diehard romantic who falls in love with Ajay Devgn the moment she sets her eyes on him. Loveena lives and breathes romance, flirting openly with Ajay much to the chagrin of his wife Kajol, who warns Ajay to stay away from Loveena.
This 24th Dec, there is much to shake and move too. While on one hand we have Katrina Kaif dancing on ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ in Tees Maar Khan, there’s Loveena on the other side matching her steps with Ajay Devgn on the groovy number ‘Let’s Go To Toonpur‘ from Kireet Khurana’s Toonpur Ka Superrhero, India’s first live animation film.
Pakistani drag artiste and Bigg Boss contestant Begum Nawazish Ali feels that her nation is crumbling but sexuality there is a non-issue
Vishwas Kulkarni (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 04, 2010)
• Will you be in women’s clothing throughout the show?
It will have to be a 50-50. I’ve made it clear that we’re unique individuals. There are two atmaans in me: one male and one female. But playing a woman 24/7 is physically impossible. At the same time, playing the male full-time is not feasible, because the man in me can be boring. I know it’s going to be a tight ropewalk for me. It’s a balancing act.
• Will you flirt with the men on screen?
Main chote-mote baccho ke saath flirt kya karoongi? There is only one person jo mere standards ko match kar sakta hai and that is the Bigg Boss himself!
• The show must also be an escape from the horrific realities of Pakistan.
In the last few months, I’ve been extremely depressed about Pakistan. Hundreds of people dying, from floods, from fundamentalist violence, and that’s all you hear about in the news. I have to confess that I have been selfish in accepting this opportunity.
Being locked up for those many weeks might allow for some introspection in terms of how I can give something back to Pakistan, how I can play a slightly more proactive role in repairing it. But yes, I am escaping the bitter, unpleasant realities of a troubled nation.
It’s important for my own sanity.
