Duttaboy, Girl!

What do you do if you are starry-eyed, think you can act, but your debut film sinks without a trace at the box-office? Ask ex-Miss Universe Lara Dutta. After Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost’s nightmare, it seems like the Dutta girl’s taking things in her own hand. Literally. We hear Lara’s ‘threatening’ to do her own stunt scenes in Vikram Bhatt’s action flick Yuddh. And guess what the industry is talking about these days: of course, Lara’s ‘heroine’, John Abraham!

Evergreen Plot

Seems like Dev Anand is busy finalising his next big thing. Our resident little birdie flies in with the news that Devsaab, with son Suniel, was spotted in California’s exclusive Beverly Hills hotel last week. And who were they talking to on the fifth-floor suite—soul man Stevie Wonder and singer Frieda Paynes. Rest assured, it’s got nothing to do with Norah and Ravi Shankar.

Born-Again 61

The Big B’s emotion-filled, back-from-the-dead story formed a fittingly filmi backdrop for a do celebrating the return of the now debt-free and relaunched abcl on AB’s 61st birthday. Bollwyood came in hordes, among them, Dharmendra and Sanjay Dutt. The inner circle too was there: Amar Singh and Anil Ambani.

Sweep To Fine Leg

For those who are happy to litter, guess who’s cleaning up after you? Shahrukh Khan, with the charitably over-dressed former Miss World Priyanka Chopra in tow. King Khan bent his ailing back last week to flag off a ‘Clean the City’ campaign in Mumbai by sweeping at the Gateway of India. You don’t get any bigger ambassadors to take the message home. Especially the buzz that the Khan is sweeping back with his new Anand-inspired flick, Kal Ho Na Ho.

Cruise Control

This flight couldn’t have been any smoother. Indian Airlines’ golden jubilee celebrations in the capital last week had a good news for Hyderabad’s A. Joseph—civil aviation minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy pulled out his entry as the Mega Lucky Draw winner with IA chairman and managing director Sunil Arora looking on. And the prize? A brand-new Merc. Happy cruising!
