45 days after Simple’s death, Dimple’s brother Munna is involved in a major accident which leaves him in a coma

By Meena Iyer (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 31, 2009)


Dimple’s younger brother Suhail (fondly known as Munna) met with a terrible car accident just before Christmas. Munna was in a car with a friend and the impact of the accident was tremendous. Both have been admitted to a suburban hospital and Munna has slipped into a coma. The car rammed into a tree and it has been damaged beyond repair.
The car is parked outside Juhu Police Station with only its bumper intact. Additional Commissioner, West Region, Amitabh Gupta confirms the news of the accident, “Yes, Suhail Kapadia was involved in the accident.”

A source provides additional details, “The car was speeding at night near Irla Masjid. They crashed into and almost climbed a tree in the middle of the road. The safety features of the car ensured that they were relatively unharmed, but the car has been damaged tremendously. But their legs were injured badly.”

The day that Dimple heard the news, she was shattered. She was shooting for Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House and the shoot had to be called off for the day.

Recently, Dimple lost her sister, Simple, and the accident has sent her into a state of shock. People who have visited her at the hospital say that nothing seems to register as she cares for Munna at the hospital. Munna is third in the line of four siblings and Dimple cares for him almost like a mother. Dimple, having lost two siblings including youngest sister Reema, is terrified of losing her brother. We sincerely hope Munna comes out of the coma.

Dimple was supposed to have been in Goa for the New Year with daughter Twinkle and her husband Akshay  Kumar. Needless to say, those plans stand cancelled.

After going through several unpredictable but similar events, Mani Ratnam’s Raavana and Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti may be released in the same month i.e. in May 2010

By Meena Iyer (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 25, 2009)


Raavana

Mani Ratnam’s Raavana, which is an adaptation of the Ramayana and Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti that is based on the Mahabharata, will release between two weeks of each other.

Initially, both the films were expected to hit the theatres in February 2010. But, due to the multiplex owners strike and a complex melee of other things the two epic films have been pushed to May 2010.

Trade circles are excited as the contemporary versions of the most followed Indian mythological tales will be pitted against one another. Raavana is very important for Aishwarya, who is playing Sita. So is Rajneeti for Katrina. An actor from the unit said, “Rajneeti is a very taut confrontation drama which will showcase Katrina in new light.”

Rajneeti

The two films have had their fair share of controversies. Nana Patekar walked out of Rajneeti three days before the film’s shooting came to an end, whereas, Bipasha Basu had to exit Raavana hours before the shoot.

Floods ravaged the sets of Raavana; and Manoj Bajpai’s accident put a small spoke in Rajneeti’s progress. And yet when it comes to the release, both films are expected to release around the same time.

Urmila Matondkar

We last saw her playing a vamp in Karzzzz (2008). Since then Urmila Matondkar has been completely missing from Bollywood. Not that the actress has given up on work but she had a more pressing domestic crisis to attend to.

Urmila has been swamped in one family crisis after another. First, her paternal uncle, who had been terminally ill for a while, passed away, leaving her father bereaved. Soon after, her father had a major accident and had to undergo three major surgeries. As though having one ailing parent to attend to was not enough, Urmila’s mother got so stressed with her husband’s condition that she too ended up in the Intensive Care Unit.

Fortunately, her parents are now on the road to recovery. Commenting on the rough phase of life which lasted a few months, Urmila says, “These were terribly tough times but one manages to cope. The strength comes from within. I have survived and learnt a few lessons.”

Now that the worst is over, Urmila is waiting to ignite the big screen again.

On Sunday, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani found acid thrown on his car, and the bizarre attack is causing him much anguish

Rajkumar Hirani

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has been a victim of vandalism. On Sunday afternoon, Raju found that acid had been poured on his precious white Honda Accord. The bizarre attack left the boot of the car and the side door charred. What’s more shocking is that his car was attacked in broad daylight.

Our source said, “These days, Raju has been editing 3 Idiots from 9am till night at producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s office in Santacruz. On Sunday afternoon, Raju was informed that his car’s boot and a side door have been completely charred. A shocked Raju immediately rushed to his car to check the damages.”

A police complaint has been registered. “Raju has had a fixed schedule since the last few days for the post-production of 3 Idiots. Police are investigating whether it is an accident or foul play. Since construction work is going on nearby, they haven’t ruled out the possibility of a prank,” added the source.

Of course, such damage can be heart wrenching. A source close to Raju confirmed the news and said, “Raju is heartbroken and worried. After the police investigation, the car has now been sent to the garage. He is waiting for the investigation results.”

Raju Hirani remained unavailable for comment.

The actor was shooting for Houseful when he accidentally injured his ear

By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 23, 2009)

Over the years, Akshay Kumar has performed some of the most daring stunts in Bollywood and has escaped unhurt. Unfortunately, he wasn’t so lucky while shooting at Madh Island for a fairly simple scene for Sajid Khan’s Houseful on Wednesday night. Akshay had to dive into the deep end of a swimming pool when his timing went awry and water entered his ears. Although Akshay immediately came out of the pool, the damage was already done as the water had reached his ear drums.

Initially, Akshay didn’t realise the impact of the injury. He suddenly complained of excruciating earache at 4am and was immediately rushed to a hospital. A specialist was called for, who asked Akshay to either rest for an entire day in the hospital or at home. Akshay chose to rest at home.

A source said, “Akshay has to report to the sets of his new film Khatta Meetha at Baramati today. A special chopper has been hired to take him there as he isn’t feeling too well due to his ear injury.”

Sajid Khan, director of Houseful, confirmed the news and said, “Yes, Akshay did injure his ear but there is nothing to worry about now.”

‘MY MAN IS INNOCENT’: Anupam Ahuja, wife of actor Shiney Ahuja, comes out of court on Thursday after her husband was granted bail

Swati Deshpande | TNN (THE TIMES OF INDIA; October 2, 2009)

Mumbai: “He never admitted it was consensual sex,’’ said Anupam Ahuja, Shiney’s wife as she recalled the day of his arrest when their world exploded in “all directions.’’ “I had flown down from Delhi and saw him only in court. When his face was unmasked for the first time, he searched around for his family and on seeing me gave an ‘imperceptible shake’. I immediately knew he was being framed. He is innocent and time will prove that,’’ said Anupam.

For the family the bail order has come as an emotional high. “I can now go back and sleep without worrying,’’ Anupam told TOI in a long
post-bail chat. “Its our daughter Arshiya who got her papa home. It was her birthday on September 28. She was in Delhi with her grandparents since June. But a day before her birthday, I felt she should be in Mumbai and since she has come, she has brought good luck,’’ smiled Anupam.

“Shiney is an introvert and a family man. He would come home every evening and play with Arshiya or we would all go for walks, movies. He even cancelled parties if Arshiya, who has turned two, would just say ‘papa’,’’ she added.

What about alleged differences between the two? Anupam laughed, “I was in the US for two years, but Shiney encouraged my work. We
would together read stories about our failing marriage and laugh. But yes this incident has brought us together like never before.’’

Anupam’s grouse is that the laws are gender-skewed. “The law cannot be a weapon in the hands of a woman,’’ she said, adding “I say this with responsibility because I am a woman who has a daughter.’’

There are more questions left unaswered for the Ahujas. “We are still asking ourselves, how and why this (the charge) is happening? The lawyers said there are lots of inconsistencies. And we have a lot of blessings from our neighbours and other maids in the building where we have lived for six years,’’ she smiled.

Family ecstatic, film industry cautious

Mumbai: Shiney Ahuja’s family can’t wait to see him and plans to visit a temple first. Wife Anupam said: “The first thing I want to do when Shiney comes back is hold my daughter in my arms and open the door for him. I’m not even thinking of what to cook, though his favourite is paneer and paranthas. His mother plans to make kheer.” The forced shift to Delhi also did not seem to matter much: “We began our lives there, we will simply go back home.’’

But the film industry is cautious.
Director Anurag Basu said, “The charges are serious and the industry will wait for the decision first.’’ Pritish Nandy, who is waiting for Shiney to complete his film Accident feels it will be time before the actor re-establishes himself. He added, “I will start shooting when he is up to it.’’ Nandy has two days of shooting left with Shiney, which he will do in Delhi. Producer Vinod Pande, for whose film Chalo Movie Shiney has to complete the dubbing, said, “I was not aware Shiney has been externed from the city, nevertheless I can get the dubbing done online.’’
Ronit Roy had to undergo surgery after his co-star accidentally punched his nose while shooting for Udaan
By Ruhail Amin (MUMBAI MIRROR; September 25, 2009)

While shooting for his forthcoming film, Udaan, one of Ronit Roy’s co-actors, Rajat Barmecha punched his nose so hard that he had to undergo surgery.

A source said, “While shooting in Jamshedpur recently, Rajat, who plays Ronit’s son in the film, accidentally punched his nose too hard. Although Ronit was immediately given medical aid, the severity of the injury was so bad that he had to undergo nose surgery.”

Actor Ram Kapoor, who is also part of Udaan, said, “When this incident happened, I was not in Jamshedpur. I was busy shooting in Mumbai. So I really don’t know the exact details of the incident.”

When asked about the incident, Ronit said, “I don’t want to talk about this.”

The source added, “Ronit has now completely recovered.”

Udaan is directed by Vikramaditya Motwani and is produced by Anurag Kashyap.
