Aamir Khan gives Kangana the cold shoulder at a recent event
Aamir Khan is glowing from the success of his directorial debut Taare Zameen Par. He recently attended an event and was his usual casual, charming self until actress Kangana Ranaut decided to greet the actor. Kangana was also at the same event and as she spotted Aamir, she decided to greet him. However Aamir seemed least bothered and merely cold shouldered Kangana.
Aamir was earlier considering Kangana for a part in his film Ghajini, but when the actress started making public announcements to the media; Aamir dropped the idea of casting her. Hence when Kangana spoke to him at the event congratulating him on his recent directorial success, he merely said 'okay' and turned his back on her. Kangana was extremely embarrassed and upset with Aamir's off-handed behaviour and simply walked away.

Anil Kapoor refuses to replace Amitabh Bachchan
Anil Kapoor has decided not to do 'Johnny Walker' with Percept Pictures as he does not want to replace Amitabh Bachchan. Percept had earlier announced the film with Amitabh and Tabu but the film apparently never took off. After that the film's director took the project to UTV which upset Percept as the rights to the film were still with them. Percept themselves then decided to go ahead with the project and wanted Anil Kapoor to replace Amitabh. But after Anil Kapoor turned down the role, Percept too decided not to go ahead with the project as two films on the same subject would simply eat into each others business.
Meanwhile Anil Kapoor turned confirmed turning down the film and said "I don't want to be part of the film which Mr. Bachchan was supposed to do, I don’t feel right about it. I am too small an actor to be a part of something that Mr. Bachchan was supposed to do. I am on very good terms with him and I don't want to stir up controversies." However Percept Pictures also hopes that UTV will eventually drop the idea of making the film as it is rightfully theirs.
Abhishek Bachchan has recently purchased a spacious four-bedroom flat bank opposite his family home, Jalsa. It is not known whether the actor and his wife Aishwarya will move in to the flat once it is ready or have bought the place merely for investment purposes. Meanwhile actress Shilpa Shetty and several other celebrities have purchased flats in the same building 'Pinnacle Dreams'.
Ironically the building is being constructed by film producer Vashu Baghnani who also owns a construction business. Vashu has been to construct a building in the JVPD area ever since Amitabh Bachchan came to reside there and now finally he is fulfilling his wish with the construction of this building. A striking feature of the building will be that each floor will have its own parking space. A source also adds "There's a car lift to accommodate cars, adjoining the flats on each floor." Ashwin Gor who is a part of Bhagnani's team confirms the news of Abhi and Shilpa purchasing flats in the building; he says "It is true that Abhishek and Shilpa have invested in flats in Pinnacle Dreams."
