News is out that the three film deal involving Hrithik Roshan and Adlabs for reportedly a whopping amount of Rs. 35 crore has been finally sealed and signed. Adlabs supremo Manmohan Shetty has confirmed that the deal is complete and that the three films will be larger than life subjects, however it will not include the ‘Krrish’ sequel. Hrithik has been given the freedom to select the scripts, directors and co-stars for the three films, and there is a buzz that John Mathew Mathan of 'Sarfarosh' fame will be directing the first film. The deal will earn Hrithik more than 11 crores per film, making him the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
"I'm ashamed to have married a woman who's selfish, heartless and manipulative." Producer Bunty Walia is perplexed and extremely annoyed by his wife Suman Rangathan's 'dignified silence' over their breakup. "What choice does my dear wife have but to remain silent?" he reasons wrily. "Dignified silence would've been great if she was really the victim. Unfortunately I'm the aggrieved party. She's the one who ruined our marriage by having an affair with her trainer.When I found out, I asked her to get out of sight. The truth is, silence is her only shield. She's the one who left my house, took everything she could lay her hands on. She has been playing the martyr off- screen, having played something quite different on screen."
The Bhatt camp which gave Kangana Ranaut her first break in Gangster is naturally furious. Kangana has refused an offer from the "discovery" channel of Bhatts although she has signed five new films of other banners.Does that make Kangana another Mallika Sherawat, who after the resounding hit Murder, upped her nose and price, and dictated her terms to all who she could survey, including the Bhatts? The Bhatts might think so, and true to type, might just give her the boot, as they did to Mallika. But Kangana says that the script demanded some obscene scenes which she did not want to do. She pleads not guilty and reveals that she even requested the Bhatt brothers to change the scene, but they were adamant. The Bhatt camp then went into news overdrive and lashed out at Kangana for acting too pricey.
While John shoots for Nagesh Kukunoor's Aashayen, girlfriend Bipasha Basu is generously being linked with Saif Ali Khan. It all started during the Koffee with Karan show, Bips had made an innocent statement that if she was not seeing John, she may have been attracted to Saif. Much-amused Bipasha says that Saif and her are just colleagues in Abbas-Mustan's Race, and that they get along very well. They went out for dinner just once and that too for half an hour.
