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.

A dead-drunk, rich daddy’s girl barged into Salman Khan’s private party and slapped him in front of everybody. This after she had abused Sushmita Sen and Sohail Khan

He may be notorious as the bad boy of Bollywood but Salman Khan is anything but disrespectful toward women. How else would one explain his unfazed demeanor despite being provoked to the extent of being slapped by a girl? The shocking incident took place during a recent private party held in Delhi where a rich builder’s high-spirited daughter Monika allegedly barged into Salman’s private party and slapped him.

According to sources, she also ended up abusing Sushmita Sen, Sohail Khan and other guests who were present at the party. Ignoring the hullaballoo, the actor kept his cool and asked the security guards to show a sozzled Monika the way out.

A source from the party says, “After the fashion show by Sanjana Jon, a private party was being held at a five-star hotel in Delhi. Present there were Salman, Sohail Khan, Sushmita Sen, her brother Rajiv Sen, Raima and Riya Sen, Amaan and Ayaan Ali Khan, Shibani Kashyap, boxing champ Vijender Singh, a few Bollywood biggies and prominent politicos. The party, which went on till the wee hours of morning, was not without its fair share of drama. A sloshed Monika accompanied by a male friend first tried to forcefully enter the party venue. She was too loud and completely out of control because of her inebriated state. Sohail Khan, who was standing close to the entrance, saw the hungama and asked the security guards not to let Monika in.”

“Meanwhile, Salman heard the commotion and walked to where Monika was making a fuss. She was misbehaving and started bragging about her connections and abused Sushmita Sen. When Salman very politely asked the girl to leave, she suddenly slapped the actor,” adds the source.

A crowd gathered and the guards whisked away the girl. “Known for his infamous temper, surprisingly, Salman did not retaliate even once. He kept his cool and went inside with Sohail after the girl was taken away,” says the source.

Despite repeated attempts at trying to talk to Monika’s friend, he said he was busy with somebody’s marriage and would be free to talk only after 15 days.

Aditi Gowitrikar signs on as a brand ambassador of a contest, accepts Rs 5 lakh from the organisers and abandons them to get locked in a reality show

By Akela (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 16, 2009)

Aditi Gowitrikar’s popularity has seen a major upheaval since she entered the third season of the reality show Bigg Boss.

This might work wonders for her career, but has definitely put event organiser Musha M Mollick in a tight spot. Aditi signed as a brand ambassador for the event company, The Red Star Network, for a local beauty pageant show. She was paid Rs 5 lakh for it. However, the actress got herself trapped in the reality show, resulting in a lot of alterations in the contest.

The contest, which was initially scheduled for November 8, is now postponed to November 17, solely because of Aditi’s absence. The organisers have suffered huge monetary losses due to this change of plan. The furious organiser Musha tells us, “We paid Aditi Rs 5 lakh as the signing amount, but she joined a reality show, leaving us in a lurch. Her unavailability and non-professionalism has resulted in the event’s sponsors and participants labelling me as a fraud. Later, I decided to go ahead without her. I had no other option.”

The contest has 24 models vying for the title and has a mix of industry people as judges and guests. Singer Anoop Jalota, musician Monty Sharma, actresses Preeti Jhangiani, Aditi Sharma and comedian Navin Prabhakar are among the many who are on the list.

The channel that airs the reality show Aditi is participating in did not revert to our messages asking for Aditi or their take on the story.

Lyricist Prashant Vasl has filed a complaint against PNC in the court for not being given credit for a song in Meerabai Not Out

Pritish Nandy

The Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Borivli, has issued an order to conduct an inquiry against Pritish Nandy Communications Ltd (PNC). Lyricist Prashant Krishna Gaur Vasl had filed a plea against PNC and six others.

Vasl has filed a complaint alleging that PNC and its employees – Bobbie Ghosh (Chief Operating Officer), Ishita Pritish Nandy (Vice President, Creative Services), Yatender Verma (Vice President Finance), music composer Sandesh Shandilya and Sony BMG Music Entertainment Pvt Ltd have committed punishable offences under section 420, 463, 464, 465, 467, 468, 471, r/w 34 of the IPC and the under section 63 of the Copyright Act 1957. According to Vasl, PNC had asked him to write lyrics for their film Meerabai Not Out in January 2007. Sandesh Shandilya, who is also accused, had assured Vasl that his name would appear first in the music credits. Since Vasl was assured ample publicity, he did not demand any monetary compensation.

To Vasl’s dismay, his name did not appear anywhere in the credits. Worse still, although Vasl had not given any NOC for using the song, the accused forged the NOC format while finalising the deal with Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Vasl said, “Earlier, I had filed a complaint with the Film Writers’ Association and the Charkop police station, but so far, no action has been taken against the accused. Now the honourable court has issued an order to inquire into the matter.”

“After the order was issued, I have received threats on my Facebook account by Rangita Nandy. My car was also damaged by unknown people,” claimed Vasl.

The order has been forwarded to the Charkop police station to inquire under section 202 Cr.P.C. and to submit report on or before August 7, 2009.

Ram Kamal Mukherjee, Vice President of PNC, said, “I have no idea about the court order. If you are talking about Vasl, his problem is not with PNC but with music director Sandesh Shandilya. Perhaps, Sandesh had signed on the NOC. We have all the required documents to prove that. And we have given Vasl enough publicity.”
