Sanjay Dutt resigns from White Feather Films Production Company
Sanjay Dutt is a partner in White Feather Films production house along with Sanjay Gupta who runs the administration part of the company. Recently though there were rumours that Dutt was very upset with Gupta over some non-payment issues to employees and even had a verbal showdown with the latter. However there is speculation that it is not just non-payments of some employees but also some other financial irregularities within the production house that has upset Dutt. Now Dutt has resigned from the company however using the convenient excuse that due to his legal pending court cases he cannot be a part of the company.
Sanjay Gupta confirms Dutt’s resignation, Gupta states “Sanjay Dutt’s resignation arrived in the afternoon and I immediately called him up and asked him what it was all about. He explained that for legal reasons, he cannot be shown to be part of a corporate company like White Feather. I totally understand that. Sanju’s decision to quit the company has no bearing on our personal relationship. He is and will be my friend.” Although Gupta is well aware that people will misunderstand the reason for Sanju quitting the company, he is not extremely bothered. In fact Sanjay will soon be shooting for the company’s next production ‘Alibaug’. Gupta admits that there were minor problems in the company but also claims that the people who were responsible for the problem were removed. Recently Gupta’s brother-in-law Dharam Oberoi resigned from the company and sources maintain that Oberoi took the fall for Gupta. So is this one more friendship gone sour in bollywood?

Star son Ranbir Kapoor has not yet made his debut, but his personal life seems to be already making news. Ranbir Kapoor has been linked with Deepika Padukone who will also be making her debut opposite Shahrukh Khan in Om Shanti Om. The two have been seen together on several occasions. Recently Deepika also mentioned her close friendship with Ranbir to the media; unfortunately this didn’t go down to well with Ranbir’s parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor. Ranbir and Deepika were apparently already having problems with their relationship and this was the last straw. Ranbir supposedly called off the relationship due to parental pressure.
Prior to dating Ranbir and their short lived relationship, Deepika was dating model Nihar Pandya for two years. She was also living at his home and he was extremely heart-broken when she left him. Now apparently after her split with Ranbir, Deepika has already gone back to Nihar and is living at his place once more. However Deepika says “Nihar and I are good friends and we continue to be so. But I am single, and the only love of my life right now is Om Shanti Om and my new house.” Both Ranbir and Deepika’s films will be releasing at the same time during Diwali. Director J.P Dutta hopes that he can bring stars Rish and Neetu Kapoor along with son Ranbir together for a film project.
Italian millionaire smitten with Lara maybe responsible for Lara-Kelly spilt
Our bollywood babes have many admirers across the world and Lara Dutta seems to also have an admirer in an illustrious Italian millionaire. Recently Lara Dutta and boyfriend Kelly Dorjee have reportedly split after seeing each other and living in together for eight years. Reportedly Kelly was not very happy with Lara’s proximity to her co-stars. Well it seems Kelly may have been right to be insecure as Lara is supposedly quite close to the Italian admirer. Lara had met her Italian admirer at a charity event in London and though he did not know anything about her filmi status he was quite besotted with her.
At first though Lara was reluctant to start a friendship but later she seemed to have caved in to her Italian admirer’s charm and persistence. Lara has supposedly grown quite close to this Italian stranger and perhaps drifted apart from Kelly for this reason. However sources claim Kelly is unaware of Lara’s Italian admirer and right now Lara and her Italian admirer are just good friends. Lara has met with her Italian friend quite a few times when she makes trips abroad. So will this friendship turn into a romance, let’s wait and watch.

Their family portrait is complete now as earlier they had a girl named Raasha and now a little boy has completed their family. Raveena says “We’re very happy and I think he looks like me and my father.” Raveena reveals that earlier they thought the baby was going to be a girl and hence had thought of the name ‘Ananya’ but now they have to think of names for a boy.

Prior to the birth of their son though the couple were hardly seen as they were traveling extensively. Their daughter Raasha too is extremely excited as she feels that she has now got a new playmate and she loves to be around the little one at all times.
