Actress Payal Rohatgi and wrestler Sangram Singh, who have been dating each other for the past five months, are planning to take their relationship to another level, or so it seems, with the way things are happening with respect to both the stars and their families.
A month back, Sangram met Payal’s family members and now Payal is coming to Delhi to meet Sangram’s sister. Confirming the news Sangram said, “I stayed at Payal’s place when we came back after completing our new reality show.” Is he okay with the kind of image Payal has in the industry, and with her numerous link-ups, especially the one with Rahul Mahajan? “Who is Rahul Mahajan? I don’t know him and I’ve even told Payal that I’m not interested in her past, as long as we are happy in the present,” said the wrestler.
Payal was a little diplomatic. She said, “Yes, I am coming to Delhi on October 4, but I am coming to meet my dad. Sangram’s parents stay in Rohtak, so I’ll be meeting only his sister who stays in Delhi.” On her relationship with Sangram, she said, “Sparks flew while we were shooting for the reality show and we started dating soon after. He is a very down to earth person and his simplicity is what attracted me.” So are they both looking towards taking the next step and settling down? “Well, in the long run we might, but right now, we both want to concentrate on our career, for at least two years,” she said.

She describes herself as a “Normal girl residing in Dehradun”. Giving credit to her mother for introducing her to music, she says, “She is my first teacher, my first audience and my inspiration.” The Class XI science student, who belongs to a family of musicians, says she wants to be a rockstar. “I want to see myself standing in Justin Bieber’s place, or even higher. I know my dreams are really big, but I believe dreams are fulfilled only if you have the power to see them.”
But as they say, with fame comes criticism, Shraddha too had to face criticism with comments like — ‘She is just a pretty face’, ‘Her guitar playing is fake and she makes weird faces’. She answered her critics by More >

Suruchi Sharma (BOMBAY TIMES; May 22, 2011)
The superstar, who was recently hospitalized for allergic bronchitis and viral fever, would not have imagined even in his wildest dreams that his hospitalization would result in fake news of his death circulating all over the internet. As soon as the news spread, Rajini fans, thronged to online forums and sites to find out the truth. Such was the impact of the rumour that “Rajinikanth death” and “Rajinikanth died” became the top two most searched for keywords online last Sunday . Some websites even went to the extent of posting fake pictures of his death, with the message – Born on December 12, 1950, Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, famous as Rajinikanth, died at the age of 61. Expressing shock over such false reports, Rajnikanth’s family finally released an official statement on May 16 that said he was fine and had to take some rest following his recent hospitalization. “I don’t know where these rumours started from. These are false. He is in good health and is resting at home,” his wife Latha said in the presence of media.
Though heaving a sigh of relief following the confirmation of their star being well, Rajini fans are not willing to take this as ‘just another joke’. Shaleen Asghar, a die-hard Rajini fan, said, “Bloggers should be careful in spreading news without verification. Rumours are not good. It is quite annoying to note that More >
Chitrangda Singh goes sexy to play mutant, loses weight, gets pierced
Suruchi Sharma (BOMBAY TIMES; April 29, 2011)
Chitrangda Singh can’t wait to be seen as Bollywood’s first female mutant, and that too opposite Hrithik Roshan in Krrish 2. Chitrangda recently returned from Hong Kong, where she underwent training for her fight sequences in the film. The Yeh Saali Zindagi actress says that she is having the time of her life, doing all sorts of crazy stunts.
“I have just come back from my action workshop, where I was getting trained under experts, as my role requires me to do a lot of dhishum dhishum and maar dhaad,” she says laughing, and adds, “I did a lot of training on ropes, harnesses and even did a little bit of kick boxing.”
So is she excited or nervous about working with Hrithik? “Of course I’m excited. He’s such a cool person. In fact, he and I were in China together some time back, to prepare ourselves for the movie. He also wanted me to get the hang of the character. He told me that I have to look and act and prepare myself in a certain way. He’s even given me tips on how to handle action sequences. I am super duper excited, but I can’t talk much about the film right now. Let the right time come,” says the actress.
Receiving compliments for having lost weight from those around her, Chitrangda seems ready to play a sexy mutant. She’s even got a new piercing, one on her tragus (see pic). Is that for the film? “No yaar. It’s More >

Just three films old and a huge fan following among girls. Do girls drive you crazy as well?
• Oh, they drive me nuts, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I like girls and girls like me.
Do you have that ‘someone special’ in your life?
• I would say the status currently is bewitched.
So you’re not single…
• I’m usually never single. I’m always either involved with somebody or about to get involved. I’m okay being alone, but life makes me meet too many interesting women.
You were doing theatre in New York before you moved to Mumbai. Are you happy with the transition?
• Mumbai’s treated me very well, and I consider myself very fortunate that I met some wonderful people here. After Yeh Saali Zindagi, if I get more work of this quality, I’ll stay in Mumbai. But if I don’t, then maybe I’ll think about going back to New York.
22 kisses in one film…
• Is it really 22? I never realised that. I came from a place (New York) where kissing is very casual and common. I see no big deal in kissing so many times. It feels strange that there’s so much hype being created around it.
So how many retakes did it take you to get the kissing scenes right?
I don’t remember. Frankly I’m new to a country where kissing is an event! This is beyond my wildest amusement. No offence meant but people see kissing on screen and they go like ‘wow’! I mean, don’t people kiss in real life? So why More >
THEY STILL ROCK: (L-R) Arindam Chaudhuri, Rishi, Neetu and Ranbir Kapoor
They were once called India’s sweethearts – now they’re back!
Suruchi Sharma (BOMBAY TIMES; October 13, 2010)
They were last seen together on screen in the movie Dhan Daulat way back in 1979, just before they got married. And now, after 30 long years, the power couple of Rishi and Neetu Kapoor is back to win people’s hearts. Do Dooni Chaar, which released on October 8, is also being described as Neetu’s big comeback. The movie, in its very first week, has seen a good response and is being described as a celebration of the common man’s life in a heart warming and entertaining manner. Debutant director Habib Faisal has also garnered praise for his first venture from scriptwriter Jaideep Sahni and others. Jaideep says, “After contributing to many directors’ films with his writing, Habib has made his mark with a lovely film.”
The producer of the film, Arindam Chaudhuri, managed to pull off a coup of sorts to bring back yesteryears’ superhit jodi after 30 years. How and why did he think of bringing them together? “The reason was the novelty factor. Once the script was ready, we thought of getting Rishi Kapoor for the lead actor and almost simultaneously, Habib, the director, Shubho, the executive producer and I thought of getting Neetuji too,” shares Arindam. Was it difficult getting both of them together? “Not very difficult,” says Arindam, adding, “Rishiji agreed More >
