Two weddings and a controversy! Even as the most talked-about wedding of recent times—Ajay Jadeja tying the knot with Aditi, J&K chief secretary Ashok Jaitly and Samata Party president Jaya Jaitly’s daughter—was solemnised in the capital on March 30, the father of the bride is now busy with his own marriage. The popular bureaucrat is reportedly finalising last-minute details of his own marriage to Sabina Sood, a PR consultant, on April 7.
If it’s a murder mystery, what’s an overweight Shashi Kapoor got to do with it? A lot, it seems. The sexagenarian is busy shooting for a soon-to-be released small-time Hollywood production called Nicobar with Kitu Gidwani and Gulshan Grover as co-stars. Directed by a relative greenhorn in the movie business, David Knauff, the film is said to be an exciting murder mystery based in Nicobar. Wonder what excited Kapoor—director, script or location?
From medals to masses. Jyotirmoy Sikdar has decided to take her leap in politics—she’s contesting the Ranaghat assembly polls on a cpi(m) ticket. Now, if her sprint abilities are any indication, Sikdar will surely give her rivals a run for their money. Over to the finish line.
Sonali Bendre was arrested and released on bail last week based on what could well be one of the weirdest pils. Two years ago she posed on the covers of Showtime wearing minimal saffron clothes with Hindu symbols. It was deemed offensive. After two years of hearing, the court ordered her arrest. Interestingly, Bendre didn’t do the photo-shoot exclusively for the magazine—it was part of her portfolio. Showtime was just another mag which used the pictures! Bendre, apparently, is very upset about the whole thing. Why not?
This could well be her second innings in Bollywood. Delhi’s own glam girl, Neha, is now waiting for the box-office life of her latest film Rahul. After a back-breaking schedule in tinsel town, Neha is these days relaxing in the capital. And no prizes for guessing who’s accompanying her. That “bundle of talent” Manoj ‘Bhai’ Bajpai. Now, you are free to jump to conclusions.
