He cannot compete with Charlie Sheen for a troubled life, but for local stardom via reality TV he has done well for himself in using infamy as currency.
It all started with the drug overdose scandal in which he almost died, months after his dad was assassinated by his uncle. This brought in the tabloids. Shortly after Rahul was accused of bashing up his pilot wife Shweta.
This made him eligible for the newly-introduced concept of reality TV here. During Bigg Boss he was obsessed with Payal Rohatgi and Monica Bedi, the former moll of Abu Salem.
Flash forward to another reality show in which Rahul was offered a line-up of prospective brides to choose from.
He chose Dimpy the girl you see in these picture but soon she too, in July this year, raised a lament that he had been physically abusive.
Within three days, a Michael Jackson-lookalike doctor, Sachin Patkar, was conjured as the saviour of this troubled alliance.Raju shinde
Rahul and Dimpy were working on their collective stress levels, audiences of this ongoing saga were told.
From what we see here, at a public ceremony to celebrate their ‘first wedding anniversary’, at which press was obviously called, Rahul and Dimpy look a far cry from allegations of bashing up. Wonder if the Michael Jackson-lookalike ‘doctor’ was breakdancing to Billie Jean in some corner…
Shoot stress and personal insecurity makes Bollywood couples opt for working holidays
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; February 25, 2011)
Till the end of 2010 Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan took five vacations annually. And this superstar couple hid their exorbitant travel bills from their immediate family because they didn’t want to get lectured on how “they were blowing it all up.” In 2011 though, the star couples are getting more prudent in their approach to their breaks. “Earlier stars would hesitate to join their partners during work. Landing up on a film/commercial set wasn’t considered an ideal way to spend quality time with one another. However, now, there seems to be little choice. Even the most established actors are working around the clock this year,” says an insider. “And vacations will have to be ruled out unless they happen on the shooting location.” On February 23, Kajol boarded a flight to Bangkok to ring in her wedding anniversary (February 24) with Ajay Devgn. The actress is going away till March 5. “We take a holiday every year for our anniversary,” says Ajay. “This year I don’t have the privilege because I’m shooting back-to-back.” Kareena Kapoor flew to Bhopal to squeeze in three days with Saif. Says Bebo, “Aarakshan was planned as a one schedule film. It is set to release in August. It has a heavy duty combination of Amitabh Bachchan, Saif and so many other actors. It’s impossible for Saifu to fly down to More >
Bollywood’s high-profile couple Akshay and Twinkle say life is bliss
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; February 14, 2011)
Akshay Kumar is flight-hopping from Dubai to Patiala gathering critical acclaim for his sensitive performance in Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House. Despite such a hectic itinerary, the actor has made it a point to return home to wife Twinkle Khanna on Valentine’s Day.
This handsome couple has spent a decade in marital bliss and Valentine’s is yet another occasion for them to seek each other out. Says Akshay, “Days like Valentine’s and our wedding anniversary definitely have a special significance. But honestly speaking my wife and I celebrate Valentine’s every week.”
The Bollywood A-lister explains that it is 10 years since they married, but Twinkle and he do not take each other for granted. Says he, “When planning a vacation I bring the plastic globe in our home and rotate it in front of Tina (Twinkle). She has to just put her finger on a place and we fly there for our next holiday with our son Aarav. Twinkle knows her every wish is my command. Whatever she desires, be it diamonds, a car or a villa; she has to ask and it will be hers. But the beauty of the whole thing is, that in the decade gone by, I have realised that what my wife really craves for, is my time. She has made me promise that I will always spend quality time with her and Aarav.”
So the Kumars have a set routine. Every weekend is a do-not-disturb More >
The four-month old babies will join in their parents’ wedding anniversary bash
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; February 6, 2011)
Sanjay Dutt and Manyata’s babies Iqra and Shahraan have just received their passports. They are expected to travel abroad for the first time.
The twins who were born premature (October 2010), are now nearly four months old and this will be their first official outing. Iqra has light eyes but she looks like her mother Manyata and Shahraan is quite like our Sanju baba. And the reason why they will board that flight to Bangkok is because Mr and Mrs Dutt want the babies with them for their wedding anniversary on February 11. It so happens that Sanju is in Bangkok for the shooting of his home production Rascals. Mana is keen to join her husband there. However she wasn’t happy at the thought of leaving the babies back. Our source says, “Mana first checked with the doctors whether it is safe for the twins to travel. Since she got a go-ahead from the doctor, she has decided to take the kids, their nanny and the whole shebang that goes when you travel overseas with babies-in-arms.”

Despite giving their marriage a second chance, Om Puri can’t reconcile his differences with wife Nandita and has asked her for a divorce
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; July 24, 2010)
After all that has been written about Om Puri’s troubled relationship with his wife Nandita Puri, the marriage is now headed downhill. Om Puri has started the divorce proceedings against his estranged wife.
Early this week, Nandita and her lawyer received a letter from Om’s lawyer asking her for a divorce. The letter also requested her to agree to sign it so all proceedings could be finished amicably and with mutual consent.Nandita and Om Puri
If Nandita does not sign the papers in the next two weeks, Om will file a petition in the Family Court. “It would be better for Om and his family if things do not reach that stage. Else, it would amount to washing dirty linen in public,” says a source.
Om and Nandita had parted ways rather acrimoniously some time ago but had later reconciled with each other. But things have now reached a dead-end, at least for Om.
According to the source, both Om and Nandita love their son Ishaan a lot. Neither of them wanted the marriage to end. So, they gave it another shot. And they publicly declared their reunion with a party for close friends to celebrate their wedding anniversary on May 1, 2010 (as per Mumbai Mirror report, May 3, 2010).
“But lately, Om and Nandita have been quarreling a lot. Om has finally decided to More >
// // // The last few months have been a game of musical chairs for Om Puri.

They even celebrated their wedding anniversary together with close friends recently. But clearly, the actor wants now intends to keep Seema in his life as well.
On Wednesday night, Om was seen at Seema’s birthday bash at a suburban hotel. A source who was present at the party reveals, “Om and Seema looked very much in love and were clearly enjoying each other’s company.Nandita Puri
Om was in a chirpy mood sang a beautiful Punjabi song for his ex-wife. Later Jaspinder Narula also joined him. After that, Seema sang a song for Om. After the party, Om and Seema left together.”
Seema’s younger brother Anu Kapoor was conspicuous by his absence, but her elder brother Ranjit Singh was present with his wife and daughter. The source adds, “There was no one from Om Puri’s side. Some of the others spotted at the party were Divya Dutta, Yashpal Sharma and Sarika, who was accompanied by her youngest daughter.”
Though Seema Kapoor confirmed that she celebrated her birthday on Wednesday, she refused talk about Om Puri.

Ranbir has been messaging Deepika to say that he wants her back while there are indications that Shahid and Priyanka may kiss and make upBy Subhash K Jha and Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 25, 2010)
There are strong rumours within the industry that Ranbir Kapoor has been frantically sms-ing Deepika from the US where he’s shooting, saying that he wants her back in his life.
Though a friend of Deepika says her dignity dissuades her from talking about her past, there’s a distinct possibility of reconciliation. Says the friend on condition of anonymity, “It was Ranbir who told Deepika that the relationship was off. She took it on her chin and moved on, keeping the hurt to herself. But the minute Ranbir heard about rumours linking her to Shahid Kapoor, he started sms-ing Deepika and their mutual friends, asking if the rumours were true.”Ranbir Deepika
Shahid, on the other hand, has been mulling over other matters. His relationship with Priyanka Chopra ended on a rocky note a few days before Christmas last year, but both are apparently in the mood to rekindle their ‘friendship’.
While they had never officially announced that they were dating last year, their fondness for each other was obvious, if their very public interaction on social networking sites is anything to go by. However, things are a tad different this time as the two are not opening up about rediscovering their feelings for each other. And now they More >
// // // After breaking up with Lara Dutta around eight months ago, Dino had gone back to dating former flame Nandita Mahtani.
The couple has been seen getting comfortable with each other at many events. While Dino was seen with Nandita again at her brother Bharat’s wedding last week, equations between them aren’t as smooth as they once were.
Dino had a tough time explaining his extra friendly encounter with Kangna Ranaut at Sanjay Dutt’s wedding anniversary, which was reported on February 15 in Mumbai Mirror.
Says a source, “Nandita was shocked when she saw the pictures. She asked Dino to explain what was happening. But Dino managed to convince her that there is nothing on between Kangna and him.”
However when contacted, Nandita said, “Hmmm…nothing like that. I don’t have anything to say,” and hung up.
Despite repeated calls and text messages to Dino and his official spokesperson, the actor remained unavailable for comment.Dino Morea Nandita Mahtani
Dino Morea turned the charm on for Kangna Ranaut at Sanjay and Manyata’s wedding anniversary party; take a look at the smoking hot goodnight peckBy Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 15, 2010)
// // // Dino Morea is certainly living up to his Casanova image. At the second wedding anniversary party of Sanjay Dutt and Manyata on Friday night, Dino had eyes only for Kangna Ranaut. And watching the PDA in action, it didn’t seem like the single again Kangna was minding the attention one bit.
While the party, held at Sanjay’s and Manyata’s residence, was off limits to the press, a source at the party reveals, “It was a well attended affair and several couples like Shilpa and Raj Kundra, Sunil and Mana Shetty, Fardeen and Natasha Khan, David Dhawan and wife Lalli, besides some others like Kirron Kher and Amar Singh were present. Dino, who made an appearance sans his steadiest girlfriend Nandita Mahatani, had lots to talk about with Kangna Ranaut. Before long, they were chatting away so intimately that it was difficult to believe that this was their first proper meeting at a private party.”
The source continues, “During the course of the evening, Kangna was seen mostly around Dino and they were overheard discussing movies, especially their common interest in Hollywood films. Dino flattered her with many compliments about her best roles. Interestingly, when they both decided to leave at the same time, they hugged each other rather warmly and the peck on the cheek More >
