Rani Mukherjee to turn scriptwriter?
Ohhh ohhh, all my fabulous fans and air-conditioners, gotta tell you I woke up with a sudden sense of dread this
morning (albeit at 11.30). Rumours have been flying thick and fast that Rani Mukherji now wants to become a writer and wants to start off by taking over my column.
Talk all over the Yash Raj omelette special canteen is that Queenji has developed this overnight talent for writing, and
idolises me. Oof, koi aur nahin mila kya?
Trade analysts and research assistants (Dimwit Mirza types who was last looking for a job with Apoorva Lakhia.. poor ding) point out that Raniji often gives her inputs for scripts whenever she feels she’s more creative than the director. This came to the fore, it seems, when she was shooting for a movie with Shahid Kapur, Anupam Kher etc etc being directed by one Anurag Singh.
Canteen news also is that Raniji intends to write her own full-fledged script shortly. Now didn’t I hear such an announcement from Lara Dutta too?.. till she found Dino Morea that is.. or vice versa.
With script writing proving to be the easiest option today, I have sent a message to Dimwit. Forget Lakhia, just learn how to write.. never mind if she can’t spell her own name. Tsssssk.
To B or not to B.. Subhashji
Eoooow. Vaziran bua has just entered, showing off her new Naki Irula-designed sharara and chewing a new wonder paan which makes her look a thousand years younger. But all that was a waste because she soon started gabbing about one B Subhash, a name which most of us youngies, don’t have the foggiest notion about.
Bua was very upset at my indifference, sulked, and so I heard her out. Seems B Subhashji is planning a film on the 26/11 terror attacks, and asked his former hit Disco Dancer Mithun Chakraborty to portray a role resembling that of martyr Hemant Karkare.
Mithunda didn’t break into a dance about this. So Subhashji is hoping to sign up my Dadoo B next. Both bua and I don’t want to comment on this bit of news really. Because Dadoo B is now showing off posters from his past movies. Heavens, what next?
Aaaah, I do think her grey cells — and I can tell you she has more than any gal I know with the possible exception of
Shabanaji Azmiji – have been ignored all these years. But she can talk books, music, art, sports and politics.. and knows even when it’s the right time to call off a relationship. Have never seen her glowing so much after the Yuvraj Singh break-up.
And now Kim Sharma is re-glowing. She’s single all over again.. her boyfriend Oren Gahaly, security advisor to the Israeli consulate, has returned home. From what I hear, they could have married.. but then Kim didn’t want to.. she’s an independent-minded girl.. just like you know who! Moi.
It’s a boy
Mottu, Vaziran and I send our heartiest badhais and love to Baby Chaudhary.
Early on Friday morning, around 2. 30 am at Breach Candy Hospital, Ashish and Shamita Chaudhary became parents of a baby boy. It’s the first kid for the couple who married two years ago.
Wise wise baby
Bua whose hobby it is to see whose car is parked outside whose house reports that she sighted Aftab Shivdasani’s Merc-Benz (huh?) outside the Lokhandwala skyscraper where Aamna Sharief lives.
I tried to convince bua that there are many Benzes in the city, it could be anyone’s (even Vyjjy’s) but she says she investigated the matter and it was Affy’s Affy’s Affy’s.
And bua has also heard that Affy wants to get married to Aamna.. but she doesn’t want to get married to him. How wise is that! But then such is life dearies.
