letter from the editor

Bouncing off ceilings Ranveer Singh is getting married. Can’t believe the energiser bunny, who dances like mad at every given opportunity, who has the tendency to wear the wackiest of clothes, is finally letting go of his single blessedness.

MALAIKA-ARJUN TO OPEN UP ABOUT THEIR RELATIONSHIP? The nudge-nudge-wink-wink brigade has always been whispering about Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor being an item. The two had kept their relationship under wraps. Not talking about it, or appearing together in public. Things seem to have changed now. The couple was recently seen at the airport holding hands. The two even attended an event together in Mumbai. In fact, they also celebrated Malaika’s birthday in Italy this year. Rumours are that the two will cement their relationship next year. The wedding, say sources, will be conducted according to both Hindu and Christian rites. We wish them all the best. DEEPIKA TO WORK WITH KJO?

guess who?

THIS STAR SON, WHO’S A COUPLE OF FILMS OLD, IS ACTIVE ON A POPULAR DATING APP, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE’S IN LONDON WHERE HE SPENDS QUITE A LOT OF TIME. HE DATES RANDOM GIRLS AND LIVES LIFE TO ITS FULLEST. YOUNG BLOOD! Now this music director can really be hilarious at times. Recently, when his name popped up as a serial sexual offender in the #MeToo campaign, guess what his first concern was! Whether he was still on the invitee list of the upcoming wedding of this heavy duty business family. He quickly called the wedding planners to find that out. More than being worried about the loss of reputation, the loss of invite surely was a matter of concern. This senior female director was extremely furious when she read stories of her…

sweet spot

“MAHESH BHATT SAAB AND I TALKED ABOUT LIFE, ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. I CAN JUST SIT AND LISTEN TO HIM ALL DAY. HE SAID STOP OPERATING FROM YOUR MIND AND START FUNCTIONING FROM YOUR HEART” Nothing tastes like fame. And Varun Mitra is savouring the sweetness behind by his recent film Jalebi: The Everlasting Taste of Love. The Vishesh Films’ love story may have opened to mix reviews but it brought in experiences, which Varun will always cherish.

The young graduate from Delhi had never given acting a thought. “All that I wanted was to don a tie, take up a corporate job and make some money,” says Varun. He bagged a well-paying job in…
