Ram Gopal Varma Ramgopal Varma thinks out of the box. When it comes to movies or story concepts or even casting actors, RGV has never followed rules. Now here’s more on this maverick film-maker. While everyone may’ve received the standard new year messages from family and friends, the one sent by RGV catches you by complete surprise.

Let me quote the message verbatim: “Since we never ever really learn anything from the old years that have gone by and yet we stupidly keep on wishing each other a happy new year and this we keep on doing year after year, inspite of knowing that last year’s new year wishes didn’t give us even an iota of extra happiness ever and also none of us ever believe even for one second that neither our wishes nor anybody’s wishes will never ever amount to our’s or anybody’s happiness ever, I hereby declare that I am not going to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!”

RGV’s new year greetings are a shocker as well, right?

Priyanka Chopra wants to be cast opposite Abhishek Bachchan again, extends the olive branch through messages to Rohan Sippy

By Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 05, 2010)


Priyanka Chopra is a sharp woman with a firm business head on her shoulders. Knowing that her jodi with Abhishek Bachchan had proved to be popular, she sees no reason to let a little tiff come in the way of another hit together. So, she has decided to extend the olive branch to Bachchan Jr. The actress has been sending feeler messages to Rohan Sippy to be cast in his next opposite Abhishek Bachchan.

The Abhishek-Priyanka jodi became quite a hit in Rohan Sippy’s Bluffmaster. The duo worked in a couple of movies thereafter and was appreciated. But it may be recalled that the friendly bonding between the two had been strained last year at a film award event when the two wanted to dance to the same number and a misunderstanding ensued.

Abhishek, who had even jokingly called Priyanka his heartthrob on national television in the past, hadn’t taken kindly to Priyanka’s obstinate behaviour at the event, and thereafter the two never crossed paths again.

A source reveals, “Priyanka has sent feelers to Rohan and is keen to work on this project. She has heard the gist of the script and she liked it. Moreover, Abhishek Bachchan’s presence has attracted her to the film. She finds him fabulous as an actor and loves their on-screen pairing.”

The director, of course, takes the diplomatic route. Rohan says, “I would definitely love to work with Priyanka, as she is a fabulous actress and I really enjoyed working with her. However, I have not yet approached anyone for the female lead for this film till I lock in some other critical casting.”

Even if he hasn’t made up his mind, has Priyanka been artfully bringing herself to his attention? He says, “That’s totally flattering. She is one of my favourite actors.”

Om Puri now directs his anger at wife’s publishers

Nandita & Om Puri

Om Puri blasted his wife Nandita through this paper for exposing some of his most private and sexual experiences in her biography, Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri.

However, Om, now regrets his decision to have spoken out so bitterly against his wife and her book.

“I was very angry and admit that I said things that I shouldn’t have said. I deeply regret my impulsive nature. It has hurt my wife and my son Ishaan.” While Nandita has been angry and grief-stricken, Om, who is still in Chandigarh said, “Nandita has been bombarded with calls, messages and visitors inquiring about what I said.

What’s worse is that my son Ishaan too has come under scrutiny. I’m not in Mumbai to protect them from the damage I’ve caused. I can’t sleep or focus on my work. I don’t want our child to suffer for the mistakes I have made. I therefore sincerely apologise to my wife and to my son for being so rash.”

Om is livid with the book’s publishers and says that they are to be blamed for sending out such sensitive aspects about his sexual encounters to the media. Om said, “My anger should have been projected at the publishers for trying to pre-sell my wife’s book by leaking out only the sexual episodes. My story doesn’t need this kind of publicity.”

It was coincidentally Nandita’s birthday yesterday and Om felt miserable. “My son has been crying over the phone. I beg my wife and son’s forgiveness.” Well Om, your life is certainly an open book now. You and she have said it all indeed.

Minissha is being harassed with lewd calls and messages by a man with a track record of stalking actresses

By Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 11, 2009)


Yesterday, we reported that Katrina Kaif was being hounded by a stalker at a multiplex. Now, Minissha Lamba is being stalked by a man who has been calling and sending her lewd messages.

The man turned out to be the notorious serial stalker who has hounded a lot of popular actresses and a star wife in the past.

A source close to Minissha reveals, “The actress started receiving abusive messages and calls early this month. She blocked his number, but the man continued to call her from different numbers. The actress lodged a police complaint at the Versova Police Station after two continuous days of harassment.”

The source continues, “The SMSes sent were extremely obscene. The stalker has no control over his language and gets extremely abusive. He used to call her from different numbers, and when Minissha would not answer, he would send her abusive SMSes, asking her to pick up his call.”

DCP KMM Prasanna at Versova police station confirmed the news. He says, “Minissha has filed a non-cognizable complaint (NC) with us on November 5. We asked her if she wanted to register a police complaint. She refused and just wants us to call and threaten the stalker. We will provide all the help she requires.”

Minissha did not respond despite repeated attempts to contact her

Adhyayan Suman is frantically trying to call Hrithik Roshan for Jashnn’s trial show tonight. Hrithik refuses to respond to his calls and text messages

Adhyayan Suman

Hrithik Roshan

Adhyayan Suman is getting desperate after delivering a flop like Haal-e-Dil. Never mind that Raaz 2 fared averagely. He didn’t really have much to do in it. Now that Adhyayan has pinned his hopes on his forthcoming film, Jashnn, he has decided to have a trial show at a suburban multiplex tonight. And to increase the film’s brand value, he has been inviting the biggest stars from the industry. Much to his dismay, Hrithik Roshan does not seem to be interested.

A source said, “Adhyayan has been trying to call Hrithik since yesterday morning but Hrithik refuses to take his call. Adhyayan has already called him quite a few times and even left several text messages. However, Hrithik neither took his calls nor called him back.”

Incidentally, Adhyayan was introduced to Hrithik by his former girlfriend, Kangna Ranaut, who stars opposite Hrithik in Kites.

Adhyayan admitted that he has been trying to call Hrithik. “Yes, I want Hrithik to see the film. However he has been busy shooting so I couldn’t speak with him. I will try and speak to him now. I spoke to his mother Pinkyji and hopefully he will be there for my trial.”

When asked if he has been calling people from the industry, he said, “Yes I just had a trial for Ashu (Ashutosh Gowariker) as well and I am calling all my friends from the industry.”

Will Hrithik attend the trial show or give a miss to co-star Kangna’s former boyfriend’s film?
