ON A HIGH: Himesh Reshammiya
After scoring music for 100 films, 500 songs and huge shows worldwide, singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya still feels like a newcomer

HARSHADA REGE Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; December 3, 2009)

It’s time to tune into Himesh Reshammiya once again as the composer turned-singer turned-actor prepares to step on the silver screen for the third time with Radio today. Himesh, who has been there and done it all, says he feels like this is debut. “Everything about the film is new. Be it my look, music, subject or the sensibilities. It’s something that people will relate to. It’s something that I would watch myself,” he says. The movie is about Vivan, a radio jockey, who gives people advice on their relationship troubles, but doesn’t know where his relationships are heading. The film apparently has already covered its cost through music sales, video and satellite rights. “Yes, the movie is a profitable venture even before its release, but I am looking forward to the audience’s reaction. I have worked a lot on this character and I crave for recognition as an actor,” admits Himesh. Of course, the composer, who has scored music for 100 films, 500 songs and has been part of many shows worldwide, is happy that the music has been appreciated so much and has been rocking the music charts. “Yes, the music is completely different. It’s a new sound, a new voice,” he says. Despite some people putting him down, Himesh has managed to brave the odds. And this time around he has gone for a makeover all over again. He will be seen sporting short hair and in a casual avatar. But this isn’t anything new for Himesh. “Be it my music or look, I have always believed in experimenting. People have appreciated my look in the promos too,” he says.

Shilpa-Raj marriage delayed again; this time due to lack of a classy venue for the ceremony

They were supposed to get married this month. But the Shilpa Shetty-Raj Kundra wedding has been postponed again for the lack of a proper wedding venue.

Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty

This month, after Shilpa’s schedule for her only pending Bollywood film, The Man with Sunny Deol, got cancelled for the third time, Shilpa and her fiancé Raj Kundra decided to finally wed officially. A source close to Shilpa says, “Raj and Shilpa decided that this was a good time to get married. Coordinating her dates with those of Raj’s for a long pre-planned wedding seemed more and more difficult for Shilpa. So, they decided to get married at the first available opportunity. But there was just one obstacle, the venue.”

Apparently, not a single classy venue was available in Mumbai during this wedding season. Revealed the source, “Raj and Shilpa had decided the wedding would be in Mumbai and not in London. Ideally, they would have liked to have it at their new home in Juhu, but it isn’t ready yet. The couple didn’t want to put off their wedding plans any longer.”

A frantic hunt began for a suitable alternative venue. Shilpa tells us, “I don’t know where you heard this. All I’ll say is, Raj and I are ready for marriage. Nothing is keeping us from taking the plunge except proper timing. Once that’s in place, we’ll get married.”
