Freida’s Men

March 31, 2009

Overnight success = Freida Pinto.


While stars like Aishwarya Rai had to pull all kinds of manouevres before getting Hollywood offers, all it took Freida Pinto was Latika’s role in Danny Boyle‘s Slumdog Millionaire, the movie everyone loves to hate or love.


It brought in a big change in the star’s life. Fame came barging in and boyfriend was shown the door.  This hot potato went by the name Rohan Antao. Reports said they were married. Some said they planned to marry. Another said that Facebook was responsible for Antao getting the boot. Pinto didn’t like it when he changed his relationship status to “Committed”. Now there’s a commitphobic for you.


And then there was the crackling chemistry between her and her much younger  co-star Dev Patel who lives in New York. Freida Pinto went packing to New York before you could say Yo!

Now that she’s the darling of the glitterati of the West and has many people to meet, many places to see et al, Dev Patel’s chances of remaining her beau is slim.

Dostana Once More

March 24, 2009

John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan who shared an undeniable chemistry in Dostana as the pretending to be gay couple may appear together yet again in the sequel Dostana 2 minus Priyanka Chopra.


From their outrageous costumes to body language to their bickering both the actors gave a convincing performance, becoming one of the  hottest jodis onscreen in Bollywood, with their fans asking for more. And more is what we may get if Tarun Mansukhani gets a nod from the two actors.

Tango with Ash

March 16, 2009


Ash may titter all she wants about how she is Abhishek’s Padma Shrimati but when it comes to the big screen her chemistry with hubby has close competition with her equations with other actors.

She gave a convincing performance with her once upon a time beau Salman Khan in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.


Her onscreen chemistry with Hrithik Roshan was surprisingly hot in Dhoom 2 and then again in Jodhaa Akbar.



Her item number Kajra Re with pa-in-lawAmitabh Bachchan sizzled.


Her chemistry with Vivek Oberoi was zilch onscreen and offscreen. Kyun Ho Gaya Na sank without a trace.


After playing King Khan’s sister in Josh they were seen in Mohabattein.


With a cold war in full swing with most of her co-stars, she needs more Inspector Clouseaus.

Wedding Bells Ringing

March 9, 2009

The past two weeks saw two Bollywood stars tying the knot with their non-filmi other half.

Dor’s Ayesha Takia kissed good-bye  to movies (or so she says) when she said manzoor hai to Farhan Azmi.


Amrita Arora, from Golmaal Returns,  took her wedding vows many times over  with Shakeel Ladak. Round One, a Christian ceremony in which best pal Kareena Kapoor and big sis Malaika Arora were the bridesmaids.
