The Wedding Album

December 1, 2009

November saw two high profile weddings when two Bollywood beauties decided to tie the knot with men in business.

Have a look –

Shilpa Shetty looked ravishing and some say almost Aishwarya Railike in her bridal finery. Her designer of choice: Tarun Tahiliani. And the groom? London based businessman, Raj Kundra.

Isha Koppikar, the Khallas girl, married Timmy Narang, a restaurateur.

That’s two down and several more to go!

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.

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 –

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.

V for….

April 15, 2009

Amidst rumours of break ups, there is news of one new couple on the block. A very unlikely one at that. Vivek Oberoi has risen out of the ASHes to pair up with Vidya Balan.

Vivek Oberoi was involved with a model, I think, whose name I can’t care to remember. Then he landed the Miss World Aishwarya Rai, on the rebound after breaking up with Salman Khan. Oberoi wandered around with a love sick look while Rai barely acknowledged her relationship with him.

And then Ash tied the knot with Abhishek Bachchan leaving Oberoi, an angry and broken man. And now he has Vidya!

Vidya Balan on the other hand is a woman who is linked with any and every actor she works with. Bipasha Basu must be thrilled with this piece of  news. Atleast now her man John Abraham is safe from the clutches of  Balan and she can breathe easy. Until Priyanka Chopra entered the picture, Vidya Balan was linked with Shahid Kapoor.

Whether it is a publicity generator or something more remains a question.

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.
