Karan Johar Notwithstanding the box office failure of Kurbaan, Karan Johar, Rensil D’Silva and UTV Motion Pictures would be making another movie together. In fact, work has already begun on the scripting of the film and Karan has declared that the trio has a point to prove this time around.

“At Dharma Productions, one of the prime virtues is that of loyalty. Our track record shows that. I have never doubted Rensil’s capability even though the film hasn’t worked at the box office. This doesn’t stop me from having him direct another film for my production house. Similarly, our association with UTV has been great too. I am thrilled with the kind of support they gave to Wake Up Sid and Kurbaan. This is why it is imperative that we all come together again”, says Karan Johar.

After Kurbaan, Karan admits that quite a few lessons have been learnt and he is sure that they won’t be repeated.

He comments, “With our next outing together, we have to prove to one and all that we can come up with not just a critically acclaimed film but also a commercial success. I have in fact already told Rensil to go ahead with his next film. I am sure he would be rocking again and come up with a quality outing.”

Kurbaan, although a well made film, saw some brickbats coming it’s way due to it’s serious theme and stark execution. Looking at the film’s fate, is the team of Karan, Rensil and UTV looking at playing safe and coming up with an out and out commercial outing? Or are they still going to follow an offbeat route?

“It is not in Rensil’s DNA to play to the gallery”, smiles Karan, “He is not into quintessential routine Hindi cinema. Yes, he would be making something unique this time around too though the bottom line would be to keep things commercially viable for sure.”

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
