Bollywood lets its hair down as 2009 comes to an end and raises its hopes for 2010

TEAM BT Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; December 31, 2009)

AMITABH BACHCHAN: In the New Year, the entire family is hoping to do the kind of work that would please the audience and carry the company forward. Our New Year wishes? May 2010 bring peace and well-being. May it fill us with pride as a nation. May our glory spread further. May we progress in all walks of life. And may the year keep me alive to witness the country, the film industry and my family prosper and progress. I look forward to the coming year passing peacefully.
KATRINA KAIF: I couldn’t hope for a better New Year’s day. I’m in London with my sisters and brother having the time of my life. We have lots of fun when we all are together. After I started working I have hardly seen my siblings. So meeting them is always special and a festival to mark our meeting, is the cherry on the cake. My mother forced me to leave my cell phone behind in Mumbai, so I’m almost cut off from Bollywood. What hopes for 2010? Lots of hard work and hopefully hits.


SHAH RUKH KHAN: I will be at home (Mannat) with Gauri, Aryan, Suhana and a couple of close friends like Karan Johar. Being with close family is the one thing I truly cherish.


AKSHAY KUMAR: Tina, Aarav and I are in Goa. I normally take a vacation from December 29 to January 2 because it includes a double celebration. Tina’s birthday on December 29, and then the New Year’s eve party. Honestly what can be better than spending time with your loved ones? This is a commitment I have made to my family.


DEEPIKA PADUKONE: I will be home in Bangalore with my parents and my sister. Then I go to Goa to wrap up the last fortnight on Ashutosh Gowarikar’s film. Every year I hope that the following year is as exciting as the previous year and I’m very happy with the way my professional life is going. Hope 2010 is the same.


RANBIR KAPOOR: I start shooting for Siddharth Anand’s film in the US from January 2. Since I didn’t wish to be in an aircraft on New Year’s eve, I left India on December 27. My entire family is in Dubai as tomorrow is my paternal grandmother’s birthday and the family is treating her to a one-week holiday there. I wish I could join them!


KAREENA KAPOOR: Saif and I are in England. We are catching up with Saif ’s Oxford batchmates and their spouses. I’m dying to wear my fur coat and sniff the English chill… looking and feeling every inch a diva. We work hard all the year around to make this happen, so let me enjoy myself.

BIPASHA BASU: I’m performing tonight. Then there will be a small get-together with friends. I always like to keep my New Year’s plans uncluttered. Home is the best place to be on any special occasion. And New Year will be a nonfilmy evening at home. Beyond that my only resolution for 2010 is, love yourself.

VIDYA BALAN: I bring in 2010 with my birthday tomorrow… no one can forget it! What hopes do I have for 2010? Oh plenty! After watching Mr Bachchan at work in Paa, I realised being focussed on your work to the point of shutting out everything else is not something I need feel guilty about. Now I’m all set to be seen as this full-blown, seductive, sexually-charged woman in Ishqiya. It brings an entirely new perspective to my personality for the audience. That’s what I’m hoping for in 2010… to find new aspects to my personality through the roles I play.

AJAY DEVGN: Kajol, Nysa, my parents, cousins, sister and her family and I will all be at our Karjat farm house. We’re planning an extended holiday. I start work only from January 2, so does Kajol. So in the meantime it is going to be a huge, long party.


AMRITA RAO: I wonder what 2010 has in store for me… Resolutions sound nice to the ears but adhering to them is a matter of destiny!


AMISHA PATEL: I have a show in Dubai. I will be working and then I will take a holiday. I always like working on New Year’s day because I feel you will then be working throughout!

RITESH DESHMUKH: Friends and I are contemplating how to ring in the New Year. It’s not compulsory to indulge in anything fancy, even a quiet time with good friends does the trick!


ARSHAD WARSI: I am looking forward to three releases in 2010. Will start Raju’s film next year so it’s going to be an eventful year. I haven’t a plan for New Year as yet. I’ll be with family and friends.


ANUSHKA SHARMA: I don’t do much for the New Year. Actually I do nothing. I just wish my family and go to bed.


SHABANA AZMI: As usual I’ll be with my family and a few close friends for the New Year.


IRRFAN KHAN: On every festive occasion I try to visit my mother in Jaipur. But for the New Year I made plans to be home. Beyond the New Year I’ve made no plans. I’ve noticed every time I’ve chalked out a plan for myself, life has humbled me. I leave all my plans to God.


MUGHDA GODSE: I am dancing at a live performance in Delhi tonight and will spend New Year with family and close friends. I’ve a horror film tentatively titled Help coming up for release. My co-star Bobby Deol is such a sweetheart. I hope to find a guy like him this year. Where are all the gentlemen?”


HEMA MALINI: I won’t be doing anything much for New Year. I’ll be with my family and rehearsing for my dance show which is on January 2.


POOJA BEDI: I’m having a small get-together on the terrace of my beachfront penthouse with flowers, candles and an incredible view of the entire city, with my father, my children and a few loved ones.

SUSHMITA SEN: I normally travel overseas. However, Alisah, my younger daughter, can’t travel abroad yet because she doesn’t have a passport. Hence it will have to be a beach resort in India.

ASIN: For me it will be a quiet New Year with family. I wanted to make it for Christmas itself, however I will ring in the New Year at my family home in Kerala.

After making up with her brother Ashmit, Amisha Patel patches up with her parents. She finally puts the bitterness behind her

By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 15, 2009)

It’s always hard to patch-up after an acrimonious split. Amisha Patel had a very public and very nasty fall-out with her parents five years ago when she accused them of misusing her money.

Recently though, Amisha has been trying to mend her relationships. After making peace with her brother Ashmit Patel, she has now reconciled with her parents. On December 1, Amisha and Kanav Puri attended a cousin’s mehendi where she met her parents.

It was also her mother Asha’s birthday. She later went over to her mother’s Churchgate residence and spent time with her family and close relatives.

It finally seems that the public bickering is a closed chapter. Washing dirty laundry in public is never pleasant, and hopefully the Patels have put the bitterness behind them.

Asha Patel

Five years ago, she had accused them that they misused her finances. Back then, her parents also didn’t approve of her relationship with then-boyfriend Vikram Bhatt. Maybe the new man in her life has had a calming effect or maybe brought out of the more forgiving side of Amisha.

A close source confirms, “Yes, Amisha was present at her mother’s birthday.”

Amisha declined to comment.

Amisha Patel is suffering from a gastro infection

By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 08, 2009)

Amisha Patel is suffering from a gastro infection and has been feeling down. Presently, she is undergoing treatment at a suburban hospital.

Incidentally, the same doctors are treating her who treated Amitabh Bachchan when he was admitted two years ago.

Amisha Patel, in her weak state, said, “I was to digest food due to a gastro infection. I went to meet Dr Barve who also treated Mr Bachchan and Saif, who suffer from a similar problem.

Thankfully, my problem is not severe. My family doctor Dr Gadhval advised me to take some treatment by Dr Barve. I had to undergo CT scans and a couple of other tests. Right now, I am being careful and am on a liquid and pure vegetarian diet.

I am feeling weak but on the road to recovery. My condition is not so serious that I need to be admitted to the hospital. The doctors are fantastic.”


Katrina walks the ramp for Salman in a dress hand-painted by him

By Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 14, 2009)

For the Couture week on Tuesday night, Katrina Kaif flew in from Bhopal for a day just to be part of the event and walked the ramp in a dress that Salman had hand-painted. The face on the fabric was of a saint.


On her arrival in the morning, Salman showed her the black-and-white fabric painted with the saint’s face. Katrina was completely dazed.

Salman has never painted a dress for anyone before. Trying to contain her excitement hours before the event, Katrina said, “Within hours in the morning, Shane and Falguni Peacock took my measurements and stitched the dress for me. It’s got an amazing feel, flow and look. Almost surreal. I feel different wearing it. I can hardly wait to walk the ramp in it.”

Fashion correspondent Mitali Parekh reports

Salman Khan’s show was a show of power as he got almost every A-list male star to walk the ramp. Saif Ali Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, Govinda, Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan all walked. The only female star walking was Katrina Kaif.

Seen in the first row were Preity Zinta, Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan, choreographer Farah Khan, Amisha Patel, Seema Khan, Manish Malhotra, Amrita Arora, Twinkle Khanna and Salman’s mothers Salma and Helen. Sushmita Sen was also seen, though not in the first row.

Aamir Khan’s wife Kiran Rao was spotted before the show started but was not seen in the front row with the stars and star wives.

The clothes were designed by eight designers, Gavin Miguel, Shane and Falguni Peacock, Rocky S and Rohit Gandhi among them. The show was styled by Aki Narula. The gowns were designed from prints of Salman’s paintings. Katrina’s gown was by Falguni and Shane Peacock. Each gown had one painting. There were about 9-10 gowns including Katrina’s. The transfer of the painting onto the fabric and the stitching was all done in three days.

Overall, the show was rather stiff and macabre. It began with children playing on stage. Some of them lay on the ramp while the other kids drew their body’s outline with a sketch pen. Then they retreated to the back of the stage where the kids played on the wooden grid. Towards the end of the show, the kids joined the stars on the stage. Again, all the kids lay on the ramp while now the stars drew the outline of their body with a pen as if they were homicide victims.

Ameesha Patel talks about shaadi and romance with Kanav

OMAR QURESHI Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; May 31, 2009)

Ameesha Patel is in a brutal mood. She’s not about to sit down and take any questions. She’s ready to punch back. And in a no-holds barred, rocking interview with BT, she tells us of her current mood, her hot new avatar, marriage plans and romance with beau Kanav

Some friends have let you down. Do you regret any relationships now?
• None at all. I know there are some mistakes I’ve made in some decisions. But it’s okay. I’ve learned from every one of them. And as far as my relationships and friendships are concerned, I haven’t regretted a day of anything.

Don’t look now, but Ameesha is changing — from cutie-next-door to hot new sizzler! So why not do a hot-hot, full-fledged role, rather than just an item song (Lazy Lamhe)?
• I guess I was testing the waters. I played a dumb bimbette, whose only interest in life is to be fashionable. It was a brand new avatar I had to present. Remember, I was this demure Gadar girl that you take home to your parents. A sweet, salwar kameez-wearing girl. And my audiences liked me like that. I had to change to see whether I fitted in and whether I’d be accepted as a hottie. I was scared to completely take on a full fledged hot role. Today I’m confident to take on any sizzling avatar.

How did you find true love with Kanav?
• Kanav is from London. He’s a hotelier and shuttles between Delhi and London. On one of his business trips, I met him through a common friend. We had coffee over casual conversation. Then about seven-eight months later, we bumped into each other again when I went into Delhi, and we just clicked. We exchanged telephone numbers and that was it. We realised there was a hell of a lot of chemistry happening here and we’ve never looked back.

Who was more intense and which of the two, more romantic?
• There is a huge amount of intensity between us. In every which way. I mean, physically, emotionally, personally. Surprisingly, for a guy, he’s actually very romantic and very caring and realises little-little things, and does the little things that make all the difference. That doesn’t just mean taking me on great holidays or giving me great gifts. All that is, actually, easier to do. It’s the little things that matter, that you have the depth to understand and give to that person.

So marriage is definitely on the cards?
• Aah yes! Eventually marriage is on the cards!
