Last week after the music launch of Ready, Salman Khan decided to hold an impromptu bash at his house. Leading lady Asin, as well as Zarine Khan who has done an item song in the film, got the invitation at the venue itself. Others received calls from Salman to join in the celebrations. Sonakshi Sinha joined the revellers at the Dabangg actor’s pad later that night.
It has been reported that Sonakshi is super possessive about the actor and doesn’t like other actresses cosying upto him. But this time she made a show of her anger. An eye-witness reveals, “She pushed Zarine, while walking past her, and then pretended that she hadn’t even realised it!” It is known that Salman has a soft spot for both Sonakshi as well as Zarine and has been recommending their names to filmmakers. He is partial to them because they debuted with him — Zarine in Veer and Sona in Dabangg.
The insider continues, “It was such a sight. We thought a catfight would break out. We didn’t know where to look and whether to laugh. When Sona first walked in, she walked past Zarine, without greeting her. Later when she saw that ZK was bonding with Salman and he was introducing her to all her friends, the Dabangg girl couldn’t hide her irritation. Also the fact that Sallu got his buddy Sajid Nadiadwala to cast Zarine in Housefull 2 was still bothering her. Never mind the fact that he was instrumental in getting her a role More >

Ever since we were old enough to talk about men and women getting intimate, see them on screen shed their inhibitions, we learn to keep our literature hidden from our precious beloved in our lives. But those days no longer exist. Or do they? Times have changed. Girls have moved on and so have the boys. We plan a date, sip red wine, relish the grilled food, and end our day with a pleasant kiss and a warm hug. But it’s not all the delicacies on the dinner table that makes an evening special. It’s the talk. Do you talk about deleting your search history each time you’ve indulged in a pleasant afternoon of one handed web surfing? Do you eye another striking figure or a handsome hunk while dining? Do you have to hide? Do you talk about your ‘ex’ with him or her? Do you get ‘hit’ on by a girl when you are with your girl? Does a man come up to you and ask you for a dance when your man is standing there ordering the second round for you? Surely, in this post modern world, ‘talk’ is something we can now share. But how? Ladies might not like to leave their husbands with her, but I’m sure most guys would like an introduction. Welcome Aarti Chabria! She could strip her name down to her initials ‘A.C’ and the summer heat would perpetually go away. Classic and quirky, sleek yet curvy, optimistic and ambitious: Aarti has been around and stayed around, been there and done that, and proving herself to be a consistent winner More >
Eighty years ago, singer and actor KL Saigal vowed to sing only for himself and no one else. Farhan Akhtar, it seems, is determined to strike a similar chord. Farhan’s company Excel is producing Reema Kagti’s thriller with Aamir Khan in the lead role.
Reema, who has been Farhan’s protégée for five years, was very keen that Farhan lend his voice to at least one of the songs picturised on Aamir in the film. But Farhan refused.
Says a source, “Reema has a fabulous music sense. The songs in her directorial debut Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd were big chartbusters. She has big musical plans for the Aamir starrer. In fact, the film has a theme song just for Aamir’s character.”
Last year, Farhan turned down A R Rahman’s offer to sing a song for Blue. Farhan also declined Rohan Sippy’s offer to play the lead and sing his own songs in Sippy’s Dum Maaro Dum. And now, the singer-turned-actor has declined Reema’s offer as well.
Farhan takes pride in singing only for himself and insists that there has to be an inherent connect between the character and his voice. “I enjoy singing,” he says, “It is true, I haven’t sung for anyone else on screen apart from myself. But it’s not because I am possessive about my voice. I don’t know if my voice will work on anyone else. My singing adds to my performances. I don’t know if it would do the same for the other actors.”

While declaring that his obsession with his ex Hanisha Melwani is finally over, Pratik admits that it was not an easy task
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 18, 2011)
Love pushes you to the brink, we agree.
Who but Pratik Babbar would know that better? Not too long ago, the actor came under the media glare for all the wrong reasons; he had a heated argument with his ex-girlfriend Hanisha Melwani at a restaurant, which got quite out of hand (Mumbai Mirror, November 5, 2010).
And sure enough, at the time, a heartbroken Pratik had told Mumbai Mirror, “Hanisha and I were together for nearly three years. I am still fond of her. But she doesn’t want me in her life anymore.”
But there was light at the end of this tunnel. While looking forward to the release of Kiran Rao’s Dhobi Ghat, Pratik has managed to do a bit of soul searching.
He has finally managed to get over his failed relationship with Hanisha and is brimming with confidence.
On Monday evening, he told Mumbai Mirror in no uncertain terms that Hanisha was not a part of his life anymore. “That’s over. I am not chasing her anymore,” he said.
And how did he get over Hanisha? “Well, if you immerse yourself in work, you can,” replied Pratik but not before adding, “It wasn’t an easy task.”Hanisha Melwani
When asked if he is a possessive lover, Pratik defended himself and shot back, “Giving space to your partner is important but I think every lover gets possessive, especially if More >
When he was in school, he wanted a cycle. When he was in college, he wanted a bike. While Ranbir Kapoor’s father Rishi was okay with it, his mother Neetu was not. As a protective mom, she was naturally concerned about the hazards of her son riding in the crazy Mumbai traffic.
Explaining Neetu’s objection, a source very close to the family said, “Neetu always felt that it is too risky for her son to drive a two-wheeler on the congested roads of Mumbai. Mumbai roads are always dug up, which makes it an even more risky affair.”Ranbir Kapoor
Neetu apparently tried reasoning with Ranbir saying that since he has a car, why does he need a bike? But Ranbir refused to give in. Whenever he got an opportunity, he used to coax Neetu to let him buy a bike or cycle.
Using every trick in the book to convince Neetu, late last year, he finally bought a cycle. Apparently, Neetu relented. “Ranbir would never disobey Neetu or Rishi,” said the source.
“Ranbir has bought a hi-tech cycle of foreign make. He has ridden it, but only for a few days before he left for the US to shoot for Anjaana Anjaani,” revealed the source.
And what happened to his Segway obsession, we asked? “That’s very much there. But the cycle is something that he wanted for a very, very long time. Since he More >

Priyanka Chopra has everything going in her favour — success at the BO, awards, and now there’s also the possibility of making it to the Guinness World Records. And for that, she has filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker to thank. It’s in his, UTV Motion Pictures and AGPPL’s film, What’s Your Raashee? with Harman Baweja, that she’s played 12 different characters, something that no female actor has ever done before. “It’s great. I hope it happens. The paper work’s going on,” said Priyanka, who’s played a character from each of the 12 zodiac signs. But Ashutosh has other concerns. “If she makes it, it will go down in history. But my focus now is on how the audience will accept the film. It’s the first time I’ve done a romantic comedy,” said the producer about his film which has Harman playing Yogesh Patel who’s forced to choose a bride from out of the 12 proposals that he gets, all played by Priyanka, of course. “Playing 12 characters from 12 raashees was quite tough,” said the actress, who in reality is a true blue Cancerian. “I’m homely, emotional, possessive and very protective… but I’m also very moody. Sometimes, even I’ve no control over my moods,” she said, also confessing to her biggest fear, “I’m scared of heart More >
