A friend of Salman Khan, who wishes not to go on record admits that one of the qualities in Aishwarya Rai that her lover boy admires is her guts and her tenacity.
While former girlfriend Somy Ali, would take all his alleged brutalities meekly, Ash is not one to keep mum.
A woman of today, she believes in giving an eye for an eye; is quick on the uptake and gives every snarl back.
Recently, when the two had a fight at Bandra, Ash, who was at the wheel, reportedly used all her strength to throw out Salman and drive on ahead.
A stunned Salman went back to her meekly.
So, as long as Ash displays her muscle power she can be assured to have Salman tied to her pallu.
Aamir: Not resting easy!
No, Aamir Khan is not sitting in his plush office, enjoying the adulation for Lagaan.
While wife Reena is touring the cinema halls in Bombay, Aamir has parked himself in Delhi. With the capital as his base, Aamir and team visit theatres screening his film.
All this, only because it is in these centers that Gadar - Ek Prem Katha is doing better business.
Now, taking the advice of an industry know-all rather seriously, Aamir is doing road shows and making appearances to boost Lagaan.
All for the son
Though he claims he doesn't interfere with son Abhishek's career moves, Amitabh Bachchan is worried after the runaway success of Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai.
Apparently, Amitabh is personally supervising the publicity campaign of Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai, which, to put it rather mildly, is cold as a turkey at the BO.
The publicity campaign has been changed, the publicists reshuffled and hurried press conferences called for and parties thrown.
No go. Abhishek still doesn't seem to be getting the required media blitz, while Amitabh's Aks The Reflection has the curiosity aroused to the skies.
Akshay Kumar and Sunil Shetty may not see eye to eye. But they are professional enough not to let these differences come in the way of their commitments.
Sunil Shetty’s Popcorn Entertainment will take Akshay Kumar on a world tour in the coming months.
And why not? Akshay has realised that he was getting the best deal from Sunil’s company. And where the buck is green, there's always the need to develop a good bond.
Is Rekha finally playing her age?
Seems like it, considering she is willing to play mother to heroines like Mahima Chaudhary and Preity Zinta.
Now, this is a film being directed by Kundan Shah, based on the script by Rajkumar Santoshi.
Originally, it was Sharmila Tagore who was approached and almost signed up, too.
But then, Sharmila had been showing a marked indifference towards the project. So Kundan thought it best to replace her. And the first thought that came to his mind was Rekha, though he was sceptical whether or not she wsould accept the film.
Apparently, once she heard the script and also the fact that she was replacing Sharmila Tagore in the film, Rekha signed on the dotted line and has been cooperation personified.
Shekhar Suman on a big screen comeback trail
Want to know the real reason for Shekhar Suman's exit from the Movers And Shakers show?
A little bird close to the host of the once popular show admits that the popularity of KBC and the serials that followed after the quiz show, Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki and Kyonki Saans Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi shook Shekhar up good.
And though he tried to get the show back on track, he didn't succeed. Now not wanting to get the rap, Shekhar is opting out quietly, laying the blame squarely on the shoulders of the channel for not boosting the show.
But then, there is another reason, too. Shekhar is confident that if Amitabh, with the popularity of KBC can stage a second coming at the BO; so can he. That's the reason why he wants to concentrate on getting muscle and making a silver screen comeback.
Of Deepa, Mahesh and Namrata
One would have expected Deepa Manjrekar to have thrown a fit when rumours of Namrata Shirodkar's alleged involvement with her husband Mahesh Manjrekar made news.
And seen to it that he did not cast her in any of his future projects.
However, Deepa does not involve herself in these petty matters. "Who Mahesh works with is his problem. And these rumours do not in any way effect me," she says, coolly.
Well, if that were so, why is Deepa always present on the sets where Namrata has been cast by Mahesh -- -- -- when she never visits the sets of films that don't have Namrata in the cast?
