Vindoo Dara Singh won Season 3 of Bigg Boss on Saturday night, richer by Rs 1 crore and, to his surprise, a Chevrolet Cruz (no less).
But also confused because only his little daughter and his brother had come to fetch him from the Bigg Boss house in Karjat on the outskirts of Mumbai.
“Where are my sister and my parents?” Vindoo kept asking. “But my daughter is here. And I’ve kissed her a thousand times already. God, I’ve missed her so much.

Actually I had no friends inside the Bigg Boss house except Ismail Durbar. My first week was my worst week. If it wasn’t for Ismailbhai who supported me initially I’d have never survived in there. He had predicted that I’d win. I kept asking him how he knew. But he just…knew. I love him for that.”
Vindoo also has fond memories of Raju Shrivastava and Poonam Dhillon from inside the House. “Whatever happened with Raju before he left in nine weeks I still would like to think of him as a friend. He made me laugh. He kept us entertained As for Poonamji in the closing weeks she was a great support. She guided me to the end. I’d like to keep in touch with these three. As for the rest of the housemates I wish them all the best in life.”
As for the ceasesless spats with Pravesh Rana, Vindoo chooses to look at the brighter side. “I saw a tremendous change in him in the last three days. He was actually heard saying he hoped I won. Did I hope to win? No matter what people think I wasn’t working towards winning. I just did what came naturally to me.”
Now that Vindoo is out of Bigg Boss house Vindoo hopes to take his career further. “I’ve a great father(Dara Singh)’s name to live up to. I’m hoping to consolidate my position in the industry. I want to work towards making the position that Amrish Puriji had made in our cinema. Let’s see. This victory has re-charged all my batteries.”
Shakti Kapoor’s wife Shivangi Kolhapure prefers Canada over Mumbai. She even got her Canadian citizenship three years ago. But she is now in Mumbai to support her daughter, Shraddhaa, who debuts with Teen Patti. A source close to her family said, “Shivangi spends a lot of time in Canada. She is in Mumbai because the release of her daughter Shraddhaa’s film Teen Patti is round the corner.”
Shivangi is quite excited about Shraddhaa’s film. She said, “Shraddhaa got offers from many filmmakers, but she refused them all. Most of them wanted to make quick films to be released before Teen Patti. It would have been unethical to sign those films.”
But why did she move to Canada? Shivangi said, “It’s an open economy out there. I want to make movies in Canada. I am very excited about my plans.” Doesn’t she miss her family? She said, “They certainly miss me. But they know I want to structure my life this way. Shraddhaa was studying in Boston, so she was near me. My son Siddhanth was busy studying in London. So, there was no problem until now.”
Did the decision to spend time in Canada stem from her discomfort over the media glare? After all, her husband Shakti Kapoor is no stranger to controversy. Shivangi replied cautiously, “Not at all. I am not running away. I really like it this way. Think about it, there was a controversy around Siddhanth too. In fact, he was the only guy who tested negative in that party that was busted by the cops. Did anybody write about that?”

Shahid Kapoor’s mother, Neelima Azim’s has finally found a producer for her directorial venture – Paul Mukul Taneja, who is based in London.
Interestingly, it’s Shahid’s Kaminey co-star, Chandan Sanyal and not Shahid who will play the lead. What’s even more interesting is that Neelima has cast Shahid’s ex-girlfriend Bhavna Pani opposite Sanyal. Shahid and Bhavna went to the same college and were more than good friends for nearly two years.
A source says, “Neelima was impressed by Sanyal’s histrionics in Kaminey. As for Bhavna, she treats her like her own daughter and thinks she is a good actress.”
Ustad Raza Ali Khan, grandson of music maestro Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, will compose the music.
Talking about her role, Bhavna says, “I play a playful nautanki dancer. I am very happy that I am doing this film.”
Neelima says, “Bhavna is a terrific dancer. However, I will need one more hero and heroine, who I will cast very soon.”
Neelima will play Chandan’s mother.
|If you thought Farah Khan will make Akshay Kumar play an unsophisticated street smart conman in her next directorial venture Tees Maar Khan think again. Contrary to popular belief, Akshay plays a sexy and stylised international conman in the film. No prizes for guessing that Akshay’s new best friend Farah Khan is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that he has women swooning right from his first scene in the film.|
While well-known designer Aki Narula is working on Akshay’s costumes in Tees Maar Khan, Farah is also getting some international make-up artists and hairdressers for her lead actor. Farah’s first choice is that Akshay should sport long hair in the film. “I will take a look test with him wearing extensions, but if that doesn’t work, then he’ll have short hair throughout the film. But one thing is sure that I will show him as a pucca hero. He is a gorgeous looking man. He plays a Muslim and wears very trendy clothes, mostly ganjis. He has loads of attitude in Tees Maar Khan because of which I have also planned a grand entry scene for him,” said an excited Farah.
“Akshay will also be wearing jewelry in the film, maybe a bracelet or an amulet with TMK embossed on it,” added Farah.
And who will be the lucky girl who will rub shoulders with Akshay? “Well, I am doing a nationwide hunt for a new girl but if I don’t find the right one, I will go in for an established actress. The heroine’s name in the film is Anya, which is actually my daughter’s name. She will go by the name Anya Khan,” revealed Farah.
Farah further said that Tees Maar Khan happened when her husband Shirish Kunder showed her one of his scripts. “It was too funny. When I told him that, he said he would love to produce it if he gets a good director. I immediately offered to direct it and things quickly fell into place. The film is very close to Shirish’s heart. He had registered the title three years ago,” said Farah.
Commenting on who suggested Akshay’s name for the title role, Farah said, “Shirish suggested it.”
Goes without saying, Tees Maar Khan will be a typical racy entertainer, which is Farah’s style. “Yes, it will be my kind of film,” Farah laughed and said.

Recently, a middle-aged woman (name withheld on request) from Indore landed up at Rajeev Khandelwal’s house in Goregaon West to persuade the actor to marry her 20-something daughter, who stays in Mumbai.
A source says, “The lady in question stays in Indore. Ever since Mumbai Mirror broke the news about Rajeev Khandelwal dating Manjiri Kamtikar (Rajeev’s moment of truth, July 22, 2009), the lady has been persuading the actor to marry her daughter. Last month, she visited Rajeev at his home to convince him. Rajeev, of course, refused to hear her pleas and politely declined her offer.”
However, the lady is bent on succeeding. The source adds, “A few days ago, she visited Rajeev’s house again and this time she brought her daughter along. Rajeev was flabbergasted but stuck to his stand and asked them to leave the house. While leaving the house, the adamant woman insisted that Rajeev meet her family in Indore since she is sure there is a karmic connection between Rajeev and her daughter.”
Confirming the incident, Rajeev says, “Aisa bhi hota hai. I was surprised but there is little that I can do about it.”
