Ayesha Takia’s Wedding Postponed


Ayesha Takia was supposed to wed restaurateur Farhan Azmi on Christmas Eve but her wedding has now been postponed to mid-2009. All this thanks to the terror attacks in Mumbai.The groom, Farhan confirmed the news saying,”Ayesha is currently in Greece shooting a song for Boney Kapoor’s Wanted. The groom-to-be confirms, “When Ayesha heard the news of the attacks, she broke down. Dad (SP party leader Abu Azmi), was in a hospital recuperating from an operation; he too started crying when he heard about the terrorist attacks. None of us are in the mood for any celebrations this year. Our mood is too grim and somber. There can be no wedding celebrations as of now maybe mid-2009 and that too it will be a small and private affair.”Farhan adds, “We are all shaken up by what happened. I saw it happening next door, as Nariman House is seven buildings away from our home and very close to the Taj and Oberoi hotels. When the Oberoi was sealed, many guests came from there to Koyla and Café Basilico (both owned by Farhan). None wanted to stay, so I took them home. On the first night from Koyla, which is 500m away from the Taj, we could see the fire burning on the sixth floor and hear women and children screaming to be let out ‘please help us’… It still gives me goose bumps to even think about it.”Ayesha had informed all her producers and directors that she will quit acting after she gets married and she intended to wrap all her committments before December.

Famous Bollywood Kisses

There was a time when kisses on screen seemed like a taboo. Today they are as popular as item numbers in movies, thanks to apni Mallika Sherawat who broke all the norms with her 17 kisses in the film Khwahish.


There have been smooches on screen time and again that hit the headlines and raised a few eyebrows. Through the course of history lets look at some of the most sensational smooches on screen.

Bobby(1973) - Way back in 1973, Bobby was declared a bold film. Raj Kapoor dared to experiment with everything from skimpy clothes to a quick smooch between Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia to rake gold at the box-office.

Dayavan (1988) - This Mani Ratnam film is much known only for its hot kissing scene between ’sweet and young’ Madhuri Dixit and ‘once-upon-a-time superstar’ (then in his mid-age) Vinod Khanna . The film was a remake of a Tamil film which didn’t do well at the Box-office.

Raja Hindustani (1996) - The Kissing scene between Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor drenched in rain came as a surprise to many watching the film in the Indian cinemas. Nonetheless, it was an amazingly shot kiss.

Fire (1996) -  One of the most controversial films in the history of Indian cinema. A super hit overseas as it told the tale of lesbian love in the heart of middle class India. Nandita Das and Shabana Azmi share a controversial kissing scene in the film.

Khwahish (2003) - Govind Menon’s Khwahish is synonymous with Mallika Sherawat’s 17 kisses on screen. Record breaking I must say!

Hey Ram (2000) - Apart from a controversial subject matter, what added to the controversy was the scandalous love-making and kissing scenes between Rani Mukherjee and South superstar Kamal Hassan.

Kyun…Ho Gaya Na (2004) - Aishwarya Rai had always been an enigma for the media especially after she broke up with Salman Khan. She was said to be dating Vivek Oberoi during the time Kyun… Ho Gaya Na released. Although the kiss between Vivek and Ash evoked curiosity, the film was a major flop.

Boom (2003) - Boom did not do well on the box-office only that it made news for its kissing scenes. The lovemaking scene that made news and the censor board go chop-chop-chop was the one between Gulshan Grover and newcomer Katrina Kaif (in her debut role). Apparently Gulshan demanded 7-8 retakes of his kissing scene with Katrina. Katrina had no complaints because she didn’t have Salman as her boyfriend then

Black(2005) - A Kissing scene in the film between veteran Amitabh Bachchan and co-star Rani Mukherjee, playing teacher and student gathered a lot of smirks.

Dev (2004) - Kareena and Fardeen Khan shared a kiss on screen for the movie Dev and that became quite controversial because it didnt go down well with the Muslim community because they both played Muslims in the film.

Musafir (2004)- Musafir is amongst those umpteen Sanjay Dutt gangster films. The only reason why this one is fresh in people’s minds is because of some sensational (and sometimes unnecessary) love-making scenes between Anil Kapoor and Sameera Reddy.

Dhoom 2 (2006) - Nothing wrong with the kiss between Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan. But someone filed a case against the Yash Raj films because he found the kiss obscene. Also the kiss is said to have upset the Bachchans who are Aishwarya’s in-laws now. Hrithik Roshan was not invited to the Abhi-Ash Wedding despite being Abhishek’s childhood friend.

Vipul Shah Buys Asin Shoes Worth 2 Lakh!


Asin, while she awaits the release of her Bollywood debut film Ghajini is also in Vipul Shah’s forthcoming film London Dream opposite another great Khan - Salman Khan. In an important scene opposite Ajay Devgan, Asin complained that the shoes provided to her were uncomfortable and they did not look good either.

But Vipul Shah was in no mood to cancel his shooting for a pair of shoes. So he kept the unit waiting and quickly drove Asin to a Shoe store in Paris and patiently waited till Asin tried on a few pairs and finally selected one.A source reveals, “The actress handpicked a lovely pair of black shoes, decorated with studs, worth 3000 euros or Rs 2 lakh approximately, and Shah, left with little option, paid for that pair and rushed back to the sets to resume the shoot with the lady.Reportedly, Asin did not even enquire the cost of the shoes, and Vipul didn’t tell her about it either. Even the director-producer doesn’t seem to be complaining. He said he doesn’t compromise on the quality in his films.”Wonder if that pair of shoes will go to her after the shooting of the film ends.

Ashish Chowdhry’s heartfelt letter


Ashish Chowdhary pours out his heart at the death of his sister and brother-in-law in the gruesome Mumbai terror attacks. Read his letter below.“Iam not yet in the frame of mind to talk about the destruction of my family and their souls. But I’d still like to pen down my gratitude to you who stood by, called, SMSed and comforted me at a time when my whole world collapsed.If there’s anything that can hold me together now, they are the two small innocent lives, who in a matter of seconds, lost the two people who were their world. Kanishq (12) and Ananaya (7), “Pokey” and “Ducky” as I lovingly call them, are our little angels, who’ve lost more than what can ever be imagined.I know, my sister and my jiju, wherever they are, will still be worried about them. An entire battalion of people cannot match up to what they were as parents. Or take their place ever. But we are going to try hard and rebuild their lives.I stood there helpless and angry while strangers came and snatched away pieces of our hearts. I could do nothing but ask one question — why them? And the answer was a cruel silence that numbed me.The gaping wound will never heal and the anger will only stay hidden. I’m angry. Really angry. And I’m sorry for all of us who suffered. But we’ve gotta get a hold of ourselves.In this horrifying game of fate, the one thing we want to tell Monica and jiju is that today their children not only have four extremely loving grandparents but also a huge family of aunts, uncles and cousins that have so much love to give. The one thing that I want them to know is that they will always have a second set of parents in Samita and me.Please don’t take my silence and withdrawal of not talking as any form of disrespect. I have still not come to terms with what is real and what is not. Thank you for being there and I really mean it…”Well we feel really sad and sorry for Ashish and his sister’s kids, we just hope that God gives them strength to cope up with the biggest loss of their lives.
