Shilpa Shetty finally admits dating married man Raj Kundra
Shilpa Shetty has finally admitted that she is dating married man, Raj Kundra. Earlier the latter's wife Kavita had made a huge cry in the media, holding Shilpa responsible for breaking her marriage. However at the time both Shilpa and Raj denied their relationship. Shilpa states "I'm not denying, it's him (Raj) but I hope when this comes out, it doesn't frighten him off." Raj Kundra is a UK based NRI, he is also a producer and has helped Shilpa to launch and promote her perfume line.
Shilpa's publicist Dale Bhagwagar defended Shilpa's home breaker tag and said "Shilpa came to know Raj four months after his wife had parted with him. Now the couple is seriously in the dating phase." Shilpa spent New Year with Raj and her family in Las Vegas. So obviously Shilpa's parents too approve of Raj, so will it be wedding bells for Shilpa Shetty soon?

Rakeysh Mehra's Dilli 6 delayed further
After director Rakeysh Mehra's hit film Rang De Basanti, naturally there are high expectations from him. Rakeysh's next film Dilli 6 has taken a long time to take off. First there was a problem with the casting of the male lead, the role was offered to several actors like Hrithik, Akshay etc. Finally after much deliberation Abhishek was chosen as the male lead and Sonam Kapoor was chosen as the female lead. The casting had already delayed the film quite a bit.
The shooting schedule recently began in a small village in Rajasthan, however the film already seems jinxed and has again been stalled. This time the problem was that Abhishek's grandmother Tejii Bachchan had expired and hence he had to cut short his shooting and return back to Mumbai. Meanwhile Rakeysh decided to shoot some portions with Sonam Kapoor, however unfortunately Sonam too received news of the death of her maternal grandfather and hence she too had to return to Mumbai. Finally Rakeysh had to cancel the shoot and return to Mumbai. He is now patiently waiting for his actors to get back to shooting.
