Their story, In their own words (PS: We want Samir Soni back in the house and Dolly on Mars)
You’ve seen the show. You’ve seen then cuss and shout. Now that they are out of the house Samir Soni and Dolly Bindra want to tell you their story.
While Sam accuses Dolly of physically assaulting him, (that bit was not aired) Bindra denies assaulting him. Read on and decide who is telling the truth..
I am deeply hurt and am feeling bitter and cheated at being evicted. I am hugely disappointed over by Bigg Boss’ decision.
I want to know why I was evicted? I still haven’t got a satisfactory response from anyone. I was physically assaulted by Dolly after I confronted her over her rude and obscene remarks towards Shweta Tiwari.
I have bruises to prove she attacked me. No one can take the law in their hand and that was promised to me when I entered the show.
I am also disappointed by and feeling let down by Khali for who I had great respect for. He pushed me to one side when I was trying to defend Shweta.
But he was a silent spectator when Dolly was harassing everyone. I don’t wish to be like him. In the past too, I had taken a stand for Ashmit and Sara.
I have maintained my dignity in the house and I don’t wish to stoop to Dolly’s level. I couldn’t stand silently when Dolly was abusing Shweta and calling her a prostitute.
The experience of the show has taught me that deep down I am a decent guy More >
Shveta Jaishankar has found a second lease of life in love and career. So what did it take to come back on track?
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 11, 2010)
Mahesh Bhupathi’s ex-wife Shveta Jaishankar has re-claimed her energy; and it seems all’s well with her world. There was a time, soon after her break-up with husband Mahesh Bhupathi, that she had shut out the world altogether. But that’s in the past.
“I have met someone who is very lovely and grounded. I am smiling again,” said Shveta, choosing to keep the identity of the man in question a secret. She is not in a rush, but does not rule out marriage, the second time over either.
“Of course, I shall marry. I am quite young. I believe in marriage. I would even like to raise a family,” she said, adding in the same breath, “Yeah. There was a time when I felt I didn’t have any hope. But luckily, I have supportive parents. I am their only child and they encouraged me to bounce back.”yogen shah
“When I realised that all was not well in my marriage, my world crumbled. It was a sudden bolt from the blue. I felt as if someone had pulled out the carpet from beneath my feet. Why me, I asked myself? It wasn’t easy and I was angry. I was hurt. I had only questions and no answers. But today, I have put my past behind me.”
Even as she was in the thick of the break-up, Shveta thought it wise to extricate herself from all the noise around her. “I decided to slow down a bit. I More >

The Delhi High Court’s judgement in favour of homosexuals last year hasn’t had much impact on the family of actor Yuvraaj Parasher, the lead of Dunno Y… Na Jaane Kyun that has India’s first gay kissing scene in it and also shows love-making and several intimate moments between two men. Yuvraaj, BT has learned, has been disowned by his family for playing a homosexual on screen and has been thrown out of his home in Agra. Worse, his father is ready to go to court and officially cut off ties with his son.
Seen as India’s answer to Ang Lee’s sensitive drama Brokeback Mountain that boasts of remarkable acting from Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, Dunno Y … Na Jaane Kyun sees Yuvraaj partner with actor Kapil Sharma to breathe life into their bold characters. Yuvraaj’s father Satish Parasher told BT, “I feel what he has done is against the culture and tradition of our country and it challenges the purity of the relationship between a man and a woman. He kept us in the dark right from when he signed the film and told us that he is acting with a girl. When we heard about the poster and the things he has done in the film, we were shocked, hurt and humiliated. People will make fun of us and we won’t be able to live peacefully ever again.”
Satish believes Yuvraaj will never get a girl to marry him. “His mother is totally devastated,” said the aggrieved father. “We are a respected More >
Salman Khan has risked life and limb for brother Arbaaz’s film
Mark Manuel | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; August 23, 2010)
It is late night at Galaxy Apartments, Bandra west. Salman Khan and I are discussing cinema over a drink; at least, I am drinking, he is talking. This is the holy month of Ramadan, he doesn’t touch alcohol. But he is high on our conversation. And his words flow easily. First, on Sylvester Stallone’s film The Expendables, the new worldwide hit; then, his own forthcoming film Dabangg, an Eid release. Salman’s last big hit was Boney Kapoor’s Wanted, which released last Eid. It’s not that he’s superstitious, but well, London Dreams, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna and Veer after that all failed to rattle the box-office tills. Now he’s got a gut instinct that Dabangg will do well. The promos have excited people. “It’s entertaining,” he said carefully, “there’s more heroism in the action, and the action itself was strenuous, bahut mehnat ki hai.”
He’s in that countdown period to the release that actors dread. Firstly, there’s the uncertainty over how well the film will do. Will the critics junk it, the audiences appreciate it, the box-office rate it a success? But there’s no time to think, because he’s busy promoting the film. “I’ve not worked so hard on the film itself,” he grumbled. “But everybody’s doing it. This is now part of an actor’s job. It’s the hero who gets the jhaapad if his film nahi chali. First there used to be More >
A bit too involved in enacting a running sequence for Anjaana Anjaani, Ranbir didn’t notice that Priyanka had fallen and hurt her head and leg very badly
Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; August 09, 2010)
Ranbir Kapoor is living up to the title of his next film Anjaana Anjaani, but in an odd way. Clueless, that while shooting he was running hand in hand with Priyanka Chopra, who had long tripped, fallen and hurt herself, Ranbir continued acting.
Only later did he realise that Priyanka, who had stopped running with him a while ago, was actually lying mid-way on the ground with a bleeding leg and an angry look on her face, we presume.
Obviously, Ranbir was caught up, either with acting or something we’re not aware of. Otherwise, such things are unheard of in the industry. Sure enough, the actor was seen apologising profusely to Priyanka later.
Our source from the unit says, “Ranbir and Priyanka were shooting for a scene where they were trying to get away from a situation. Priyanka was wearing high heels and running. Ranbir got involved in the scene and with increased speed, started pulling her, when she suddenly tripped and fell.
On turning around later, he saw that Priyanka had fallen down and her leg was bleeding. He obviously went out of his way to make her feel comfortable after that.”
Director Siddharth Anand too was witness to this incident and in his version there is an added staircase. He says, “They were running holding hands and there More >
Anupam Kher has walked out from the film Dear Friend Hitler after fans, following a Mumbai Mirror report on it, flooded him with calls and urged to abandon the project
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; June 18, 2010)
On June 5, Mumbai Mirror carried a story saying that Anupam Kher had been signed to play Adolf Hitler in Dear Friend Hitler which will be directed by Rakesh Ranjan Kumar. The latest development on this front is that Kher has walked out from the film.
Kher’s refusal to do the role stems from the fact that several Indians from all over the world made personal requests to him in the last week saying, “How can you play Hitler, who was responsible for the massacre of millions of people?”
“Yes, that’s exactly what I was told by several people,” said Kher, when talking to Mumbai Mirror yesterday from Scotland, where he is shooting with Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor.
“Initially I thought that since I am an actor, I should be up for any role. But after seeing that so many people were reacting against it, I realised that I should not hurt people. Kyun kisiko bhi dukh pahunchaun? Human emotions are bigger than cinema.”
“There is one more reason why Kher was averse to doing Dear Friend Hitler. “I disagree with the director’s (Rakesh) statement in the media saying that Hitler was responsible for India’s independence, or something similar that he said. Being one of the better actors of Indian cinema, this is one film I can definitely do More >
Alyque Padamsee and Sharon Prabhakar’s daughter, Shazahn, who made her Bollywood debut in Shimit Amin’s Rocket Singh, had an accident at Marine Drive yesterday.
The incident in question happened around 6 pm when Shazahn was enacting a scene with Ram Charan for a commercial. Shazahn says, “Ram Charan and I were sitting on the wave breakers for the shoot. Everything was fine till almost the end of the shoot. Just when I was getting up, a huge wave suddenly hit us and I lost my balance. I fell on the rocks.”
The director of the commercial, Bhaskar (who directed the Genelia D’Souza Tamil super hit Bommarilu), organised medical aid before the young actress was taken to her car.
She has been advised rest for a couple of days. “I have hurt myself rather badly on my hands and knees.
I am shaken up as I almost fell into the sea,” adds Shazahn.

The prolific Priyadarshan’s reputation after his television appearance calling the conflict between the Shiv Sena and Shah Rukh Khan a publicity stunt, has put him in the ‘block’ list of many important cell phones in Mumbai.
Predictably, Priyan pleads innocence. “I was quoted out of context. I’d never speak like that about Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar. They’ve both been very nice to me. If I’ve hurt either of them I apologize to them publicly, and would like to add that in any conflict between filmmakers and politicians I’d naturally and inevitably support my own fraternity.”
Priyadarshan wanted to call his new film with Ajay Devgn, Bipasha Basu and Akshaye Khanna Ishaq. In fact he had all but finalized the title when to his horror Priyan found out that a film entitled Ishqiya is already out.
“Vishal Bhardwaj beat me to it!” laughs Priyan. “He took the title Ishqiya. And once that was out, there was no point in calling my film Ishaq. So we’ve named it Garam Hawa after M S Sathyu’s classic.”
Priyan hopes to live up to the title of Sathyu’s film. “I’m not such a bad filmmaker, you know. If I’m the director of De Dana Dan I’ve also made Kancheevaram.”
Pritam Chakraborty’s anguish at not being part of Imtiaz Ali’s Rock Star is evident; AR Rahman to compose music for the filmBy Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 16, 2010) Imtiaz Ali
After composing chartbusting scores in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal one would think music composer Pritam Chakraborty is an integral and indispensable part of Imtiaz’s cinema. Surprisingly, that’s not the case any longer, at least not as far as Imtiaz’s next film, Rock Star is concerned.
The emotional composer tried to hide his hurt as well as he could and said, “I haven’t been approached for Rock Star. I’ve heard that Rahman is doing it. Am I hurt about not being part of Imtiaz’s new film? I’ve been too busy to think about it. I’m sure we’ll work together again in the future.”
Although Imtiaz remained unavailable for comment it is no secret that the filmmaker is known to let his head and not his heart rule when it comes to deciding his cast and crew. For instance, despite creating magic with Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met he signed Deepika Padukone for Love Aaj Kal although Kareena, incidentally the film’s producer Saif Ali Khan’s lady-love, was very keen to be part of the film.
Kareena too couldn’t hide her hurt when she publicly admitted while receiving the best actress award for Jab We Met that she was upset with Imtiaz for not casting her in Love Aaj Kal. Even after Love Aaj Kal, Imtiaz chose Ranbir Kapoor over Saif Ali Khan in Rock Star although More >
Bharati Dubey & Ambarish Mishra | TNN (THE TIMES OF INDIA; February 7, 2010)
Mumbai: Both parties in the Shiv Sena-Shah Rukh Khan feud appeared to climb down a little on Saturday without backing off from their ideological positions amid talk that a Bollywood actor and a senior state politician had played mediator between the party and the actor.
The Sena, despite insisting that Khan was a “traitor’’ for taking up the cause of Pakistani players who were not picked by any team for IPL, said on Saturday that it was not interested in disrupting the screening of his next release, My Name Is Khan.
The first Sena official comment—on not wanting to disrupt the film—came, significantly, a day after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi declined the safety of a helicopter and travelled by Mumbai’s lifeline, the local train, through some traditional Sena bastions, sending out an unmistakably strong political rejoinder to the Sena and its agenda.
Khan’s comments, too, after he touched down in Mumbai on Saturday morning, were much more guarded than those he had made abroad. Not once did he say he had said anything wrong—when he commented on Pakistani players not being picked for IPL teams (his own team did not pick any)—but he made the right noises to indicate that he was not interested in taking the war of words forward in the run-up to the release of his film on February More >
