Judging by The lover
Kareena Kapoor has lately been in the news for supporting Saif Ali Khan through his imminent legal troubles. However, unbeknownst to her, a cosmic justice system, much swifter than our own, has struck. Apparently, the scripted dialogues of her movie Heroine have been stolen with the laptop of its writer Niranjan Iyengar. One can only hope she doesn’t have to bear more of her boyfriend’s karmic imbalances.
Sonu Sood, dreamy beefcake from Dabangg and general sport, is apparently going to play Dawood Ibrahim in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala. We support every villainous role he takes because, as always, there is a startling need for layered ‘negative’ roles. More than anything else, we expect him to overshadow John Abraham and Anil Kapoor, the other two male leads of the film.
The immensely talented and deliciously genre-abiding filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia has finally cast something close to an A-list star. But, we suspect the rewards will be reaped by Imran Khan. He will play a Bollywood fan in a small town, who makes pirated copies of big movies. Apart from the indie credibility that is sure to appeal, he is desperately in need of roles other than the slightly castrated male lead in a romantic comedy.

(True. Being more rich and famous helps people want to be you)
Gay For Sale
Careful research into news stories over the past year will show the birth and evolution of the PR campaign to turn Hrithik Roshan into a “gay icon”. The flaw in this otherwise sure-shot plan is Hrithik’s non-compatibility with the image of the classic gay icon. (Very, very strong gay rumours are generally a requirement). Now, finally his PR have taken the last possible step: platitudes about equality. “Being gay is NOT a disease we need to fear!” says Hrithik.
