Top Bollywood stories of the week


The world of Bollywood is always buzzing with the news of new alliances, fresh events and rather juicy gossips and this week have provided a fair mixture of all the ingredients. One of the interesting stories is that the standup comedian Kapil Sharma has been offered a role in a Bollywood movie to be produced by Y Films which is an arm of YRF that concentrates on more youth centric films. The news is not welcome by superstar Salman Khan who once considered the comedian his friend. The ill feeling stems from when Kapil backed out at the last moment from hosting the inauguration program for CCL4.

In other news, actress Preity Zinta candidly talked about what went wrong in her comeback film, Ishqk in Paris. She confessed that everything that she could do wrong had done wrong. In addition, circumstances proved to be very awkward. Temperatures fell to -23 in Paris and Europe experienced the most severe winter for 60 years. In addition, the train to be used for shooting broke down and someone of the team even committed suicide. Whatever be the reasons, the movie has proven to be a failure at the box office.

The wedding of Ahana – the youngest daughter of Dharmendra and Hema Malini got married this week to Vaibhav Bhora. Everything from the Mehndi function to the ceremony was carried off in the traditional style and the mother of the bride was reported to be very happy. Elder sister Esha was present with her husband Bharat Takhtani. The guest list included a vast portion of the Bollywood glitterati, but brothers Sunny and Abhay were conspicuously absent.

The exact status of the relationship between Ranbir and Kat is another story of Bollywood. Though the two stars never officially confirmed their relationship, their photos and appearances suggested that they are involved with each other. But now the two seem to be intent on creating a distance. The two appeared distant on the sets of Jagga Jasoos. They even arrived separately for a party thrown by Aamir Khan where both were invited.

Another rumor going strong in Bolywood is that Lulia Vantur who is rumored to be the latest girlfriend of Salman Khan is all slated to make her Bollywood debut in a film by Atul Agnihotri. It remains to be seen if Salman will lend his guidance to his (alleged) girlfriend as he had done to many leading ladies in the past.
