Hasta La Vista Baby!

May 28, 2009

This has been one ending that people have been anticipating since it began. And looks like it now has the official stamp declaring it’s all over.

The KatrinaSalman love story did not have a fairy tale ending but did have it’s moments and made a good story. It had love. It had some maar-peet too. It also had the other woman to spice things up.

Salman-KatrinaKaif

Following his nasty break up with Aishwarya Rai, it didn’t take long for Salman to find Katrina who had made her debut in the disastrous Boom. The much younger actress and Salman Khan became all the rage overnight even as the guessing game of how long she would last kicked in.

Boom

Katrina is said to enjoy a good chemistry with Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani co-star Ranbir Kapoor. Though Salman Khan helped her land roles, she became  a success in the arms of Akshay Kumar. And she was miffed with Sallu for picking a fight with Shah Rukh Khan at her birthday party, thanks to which it is rumoured that she lost out on some roles.

Salman on the other hand was first linked with Zarine, who looked like Katrina and then with his London Dreams co-star Asin for whom he bought a pup. He is also vocal about his appreciation for the German model (not a nude model as reported in the media) Claudia Ciesla. And with Kat turning down his proposal to focus on her career, Sallu doesn’t seem willing to wait forever.

Who is dating Sonam Kapoor?

May 27, 2009

Sonam Kapoor may have been in the public eye for less than two years with two movies that failed to live upto expectations. However she has the rumour mills working overtime speculating who her man is.

Ranbir Kapoor was her first link up. The two grew up together, worked as assistants on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Black together and made their debut together in Saawariya. No sooner did they make their debut, Ranbir was carried away by Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor maintained that she and Ranbir were just good friends.

Abhay Deol was making news with Dev D and she was making news with Delhi 6 and they both made news for their alleged affair and that they were to be seen together in Papa Kapoor’s Ayeesha, an adaptation of Emma.

But it turns out it was not the Deol boy who scored points with Sonam. It was none other than MTV VJ Cyrus Sahukar who acted as a womanizing photographer in Delhi 6 and convinces Bittu to run away with him.

His persuasion skills are strong…he may have lost her onscreen to monkeyman but definitely has her offscreen and with his wacky sense of humour their dates must be a laugh a minute extravaganza.

No Lovin in Bollywood

May 26, 2009

Cupid seems to have resigned from Bollywood as the past week has been a quiet one.  After an overdose of couples doing it and those who stopped doing it and then again those who did it with someone else, the dust has settled.

Preity Zinta confirmed that she is single but will not get involved with cricketers, married men and actors. So you can strike off Shekhar Kapoor and Yuvvraj Singh as possiblities.

Gerard Butler is apparently going all out to woo Priyanka Chopra who seems to have nothing going on with Shahid Kapoor who now has Vidya Balan as a neighbour.

And Katrina Kaif who has not read the book How To Say No is said run to the loo every time Salman Khan pops the question.

Akshay-Katrina

May 20, 2009

Akshay Kumar gave Katrina Kaif something Salman Khan couldn’t – the big O at the box office.

Not only do they look great together, they both became each other’s lucky charms.

Namastey London and Singh is Kinng gave their career a boost.

Katrina, with her new found success tried Yuvvraj with Salman Khan but that didn’t do anything for her.

On the other hand, Akshay, who was creating a buzz about how he had dethroned Shah Rukh Khan, fell flat on his face with Chandni Chowk to China with Deepika Padukone. Nagesh Kukunoor‘s 8×10 Tasveer with Ayesha Takia also garnered average reviews.

If Blue in which both actors come together petrforms well, they may want to stick together.

Anoushka and Vivek???

May 15, 2009

The last time I looked at what I thought was Vivek Oberois non-existent love life, news was he was all tied up in knots over Vidya Balan.

VIVEK OBEROI

But then they denied it all and Vidya Balan even bought an apartment close to Shahid Kapoor with whom she has been linked in the past before his Kaminey co-star Priyanka Chopra entered the picture.

Another tit-bit doing the rounds, that called for a double take was –

aishwaryaabhishekvivekqh2

1. Vivek was going to team with his ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai and her husband Abhishek Bachchan in Tansen.

2. Vivek Oberoi is actually dating Pandit Ravi Shankar‘s daughter the sitar player Anoushka Shankar, who is also Norah Jones‘ half-sister.

He must be a man of  “hidden talents”, our Vivek Oberoi. First Miss World and now a Grammy Nominee.

Another one bites the dust!

The Adhyayan Suman and Kangana Ranaut relationship has ended on a mysterious note. Maybe not so mysterious. Guess their love was too fragile when faced with parental opposition and temptation.

Adhyayan suman

Ranaut was recently in a mud slinging match with Aditya Pancholi. The much older actor claimed that he was in a relationship with her and helped her in her career and neglected his wife for her (ha, ha). But she used him and left him behind. What goes around, comes around.

The actress is part of Kites with Hrithink Roshan, who was linked with Barbara Mori. Her brother Kintaro seems to share the seductive genes coz he seems to have won over Kangana Ranaut.

Ranaut’s career is going great guns. After Gangster and Fashion the actress will be seen in a comedy with Sushmita Sen and is off to Hollywood for a screen test.

Meanwhile Adhyayan whose debut Raaz: The Mystery Continues was a huge success, will be seen in Jashn with Shahana Goswami. The latter was seen as Debbie in Rock On and in a music video for the international star Dido.  Rumours has it that the two are an item but Adhyayan brushed it off by claiming that…………….any guesses???…………….they were “just friends”, while he refused to comment on Ranaut.

This smitten kitten is also known as the Bollywood Badshah and the King Khan. Yup, that’s right, it’s none other than Shah Rukh Khan, who can only purr when lady love Gauri Khan is around.

sangeet

Their love story is filmi and SRK pulled out all the stops to make her his.

His possessiveness drove her away to Mumbai and he followed. After a random search around the crowded city and it’s beaches, he spied her and they ran into each others arms. She wept as she had realised how much his possessiveness meant to her. And love, of course.

It took them some time to convince their parents to allow them to marry as she is a Hindu and he is a Muslim. And at last love and insanity prevailed.

After nearly 15 years, the couple are still spotted together,  as together as any couple can be, with two kids – Aryan and Suhaana – to complete the picture.

Political Love

May 8, 2009

Isha Sharvani, the actress who grew up dancing and still continues to do so, was linked with cricketer Zaheer Khan and their romance seemed to die a natural death.

glittearti_zaheer_khan_20070611

Her performance in Luck By Chance as Dimple Kapadia‘s daugher who seduces Farhan Akhtar was well received. But that’s not what people are talking about.

2009013050930101

Actresses dating cricketers is old news. But actresses  going out with one of the most charismatic and eligible Congressman who goes by the name  Rahul Gandhi!!?? That’s taking it up a notch.

glitterati_rahul_gandhi_juanita_200050912

Rahul was earlier going out with a Veronique, a Spanish woman, who disappeared from the scene as his political career started shaping up.

Isha & Rahul, seem to be turning up separately for the same parties and enjoying each other’s company.  So until they turn up together we’ll have to be satisfied with Isha taking the ‘no comments’ stance.
