Sonam Kapoor feels much relieved and happy that Aditya
Chopra has finally found a girl opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab De Bana Di Jodi.
"Since the film was announced speculation started about me being in the
project. Arrey baba, I was never offered the film! I don't know where this
whole thing started, honestly. I did visit Adi a couple of times like any other
actor. But not for any particular role. Maybe people saw me entering Yashraj.
Nowadays even if an actress passes by Yashraj she's rumored to have signed a
film with them." But the girl Anushka Sharma who has been signed opposite
SRK in Adi's film does resemble Sonam. "Does she? Hmmmmm ….Is that a
compliment to me or to her? I had never even approached Adi for this role and I
had a reason for it.I know it required someone very Punjabi and young. I've
just played a full-on Punjabi kudi, salwar-kameez sharara-gharara and all, in
Rakeysh Mehra's Dilli 6. Even in Saawariya I was in full elaborate Indian clothes.
Now I need change of pace and grace."
In his latest blog, actor Aamir Khan talks about a certain
Shahrukh licking his feet. The perfectionist star is in Panchgani, with family
and kids. Aamir writes: "I’m sitting under a tree, on the edge of a
valley, approximately 5000 feet above sea level. The river Krishna
flows far below us snaking its way among the Sahyadri mountains. A cool breeze
is blowing, jannat ki hawa (breeze from the heavens), as my mother calls it.
Ammi, Ira and Junaid are by my side and we are in the middle of one of our
favourite board games ‘Settlers Of Catan’. Shahrukh is licking my feet and I am
feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for?Now, before
you jump to any conclusions let me add that Shahrukh is the name of our dog.
And before you jump to any further conclusions let me add that I had nothing to
do with naming him. In fact Shahrukh is the dog of the caretakers of our house.
When I bought this house it came with the caretakers and their dog! Apparently
Shahrukh (the actor) was shooting for a commercial in this house a few years
ago, and that very day the caretakers bought a pup…, and named him Shahrukh.
What are the chances of me buying a house which comes with a dog called
Shahrukh!!! Some of my friends claim that I bought the house just because of
the dog. I would have to be a serious fan of Shahrukh’s to want to do that.
Your guess… All I can say is I’m waiting for him to come over. Getting back to
Settlers of Catan, it’s a wonderful game. You must try it if you are fond of

A sessions court in Mumbai today acquitted Bollywood actor
Navin Nischol and his brother Pravin from the charge of abetting in the suicide
of Navin's wife, Geetanjali. Additional Sessions Judge B D Kamkhedkar acquitted
them, saying no case was made out against the brothers. Geetanjali had
