Abhishek applies sindoor on Ash’s forehead
Ash, Abhi and the entire Bachchan family recently visited the Vindhyachal temple in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh along with Samajwadi party leader Amar Singh. Ash and Abhi also took part in a spiritual ritual where 51 other couples were married in a ceremony. The ceremony was organized by the members of the Samajwadi party and was their gift to Amar Singh. When Ash came out of the temple she was seen with sindoor on her forehead which is the sign of a married bride, this left several onlookers stunned and wondering if Ash and Abhi had secretly tied the knot like they had done for their engagement.
According to sources, the sindoor was applied by Abhishek on Ash’s forehead during the rituals held in the temple. However a head priest at the temple stated “The rituals were part of a pooja and there was no marriage.” The Bachchan family claims that they have still to decide a date for the wedding and will announce it to all after it has been decided. Ash too seemed unconcerned by everyone’s gaze at the sindoor on her forehead and did not even seem remotely interested in clearing any speculations. In fact she seemed to be enjoying her status of playing the devoted wife and daughter-in-law to be.
Amitabh was bored with KBC and shares a healthy competition with SRK
Amitabh Bachchan is very happy about receiving the Legion d’Honour award from the French Government. However recently Shahrukh has begun to host Kaun Banega Crorepati which was earlier hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. When Amitabh was replaced with SRK, the organizers of the show claimed that Amitabh did not want to continue doing the show after his illness as he was busy with his other pending assignments and could not devote ample time to doing the show. However Amitabh finally speaks up on why he did not want to do KBC anymore.
Amitabh says “I could not do KBC because I feel ill and needed time to recover; my health problems disturbed even the shooting schedule of my films. Many of my films were left unfinished at a critical point and I had to finish them first. By the time I got down to thinking about KBC, time had passed, it was in fact getting a bit monotonous and routine for me and it was a bit boring for me to keep doing the same thing again and again. There was no anxiety getting into the same chair again, so I decided not to do it.” Big B also claims that he shares a healthy competition with SRK which he feels is a good thing. However Amitabh has not yet had time to view any episode of KBC hosted by SRK.
Vivek Oberoi hits on Sanju baba’s girl Manya
Vivek Oberoi has been hiding himself ever since his break-up with the now soon to be ‘bahu’ of the Bachchan family, Aishwarya Rai. After his break up he claimed that he just wanted to concentrate on his films and was busy shooting for his upcoming film Shootout at Lokhandwala. However sometime back there were reports that Vivek was dating an Australian girl and now it seems that he was trying to hit on Sanjay Dutt’s girl Maanyata. This however according to sources was before Sanju and Maanyata’s relationship became public. According to sources “Vivek was besotted with Manya and kept calling her up, but Manya didn’t give it too much importance until he called her up in the middle of the night. Manya who was then irritated by Vivek’s behaviour complained to Sanju.”
Sanjay was extremely upset and disturbed by Vivek’s behaviour and wanted to thrash him for it. The two met face to face on the sets of Shootout At Lokhandwala and Sanjay made his ire apparent to Vivek. Apparently Vivek did not want anymore pangas with any senior members of the film industry as his last fiasco with a particular Khan rubbed many in the industry the wrong way. Hence he pleaded with Sanju to forgive him and claimed that he was unaware of his and Manya’s relationship. After much persuasion Sanjay agreed to forgive Vivek and patched up with him. However as usual all the concerned parties deny this and claim that these are nothing but malicious rumours against them.
Preity’s not keeping her promise to boyfriend Ness
Preity Zinta’s professional career has been going great with two hit films ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’ and ‘Jaanemann’ doing well last year. However there seems to be a lot of speculation on Preity’s personal life with beau Ness Wadia. First there were rumours that the couple had split, then there were rumours that Preity and Ness’s mom Maureen weren’t getting along with each other, next the whole episode of Ness allegedly beating up some laborers etc. However the couple has managed to come through all of this and is still together. Preity has always been open about her relationship with beau Ness. According to sources Preity it seems even promised Ness that she would soon give up smoking as no doubt her beau was concerned about her health. But it seems that Preity finds it extremely difficult to keep her word on this particular promise.
Sources claim, Preity constantly finds excuses to smoke when she is in her personal vanity van. Her constant promises of giving up this bad habit had even become the source of jokes on the sets of her next film Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Well Preity even stars are allowed to have a few vices but hey girl, you shouldn’t make promises you can’t keep. May be Preity needs to catch Anurag Kashyap’s forthcoming film ‘No Smoking’ which stars John Abraham, who knows it might just help!!!
Salman congratulates Abhishek on his engagement with Ash
Salman Khan has definitely moved on after his relationship with Aishwarya Rai and he recently proved this when he sent a congratulatory SMS to Abhishek Bachchan on his engagement with Ash. Salman and Ash had earlier shared a volatile romantic relationship, but after their split have never ever spoken to each other despite coming face to face. However Abhishek and Salman continue to share a fairly friendly relationship with each other in spite of the fact that Abhi and Ash were seeing each other and are now engaged to be married.
However Salman was definitely not amongst the guests invited for the fairly private engagement party organized at the Bachchan family home. So now there are speculations whether Salman will be invited for the wedding between Ash and Abhi. Considering Ash has made her displeasure quite clear when the topic of Salman comes up, we doubt that he will be one of the esteemed guests at the wedding. So how is the politically correct Bachchan family going to circumvent this one, considering they share a friendly relationship with Salman and his family? Everyone’s curious to know, but let’s wait and watch.
