The Mumbai police Crime Branch is probing a complaint about alleged mafia threats to well-known industrialist Nusli Wadia related to a complaint filed against his son Ness by Bollywood actress Preity Zinta.  An aide to the 70-year-old Nusli Wadia Monday received calls and a message purportedly from absconding gangster Ravi Pujari, following which a complaint was lodged with the N.M. Joshi March Police Tuesday. "Don't run around Preity Zinta. Give my message to Wadia, otherwise his business will be in trouble," said the message to the aide, which was given to police in the complaint.  Bombay Dyeing Group chairman Nusli Wadia is a grandson of M.A. Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, who lived and worked in Mumbai before Independence.

A six-degree black belt holder in martial arts, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar's dream is to make martial arts a compulsory subject in school for both boys and girls, saying it is as important as physics or maths. "I feel a certificate in martial arts is more important than a certificate in physics or mathematics. I am in talks with the government to have martial arts as a compulsory subject for boys and girls. I look forward to the day every student would learn martial arts for at least three years. It is my dream," said Akshay.

Richa Chadda had recently flown to Delhi for work and while returning to Mumbai, she was apparently questioned for two hours at the Delhi airport. A source says, "Richa wanted to meet her family and cater to a work commitment in Delhi last week. She has been following an Ayurvedic beauty and skin care routine. Instead of taking tablets, she prefers talc; on this trip too, she had carried the same in her bag.” This seems to have created problems for the actress, as she was interrogated by customs officials at the Delhi airport. "The officials thought that the beauty powder was a suspicious item. After a gruelling session, where the actress was questioned for over two hours, Richa was allowed to fly out. This incident has shocked the actress as she didn't think she'd face any trouble due to the powder."

Actor Riteish Deshmukh, who is known for films like 'Housefull' and 'Grand Masti', says he is bored of doing comedy. Riteish, 35, is known for his comic timing and has won several awards for best performance in a comic role. "I am bored of doing comedies and more than that, I don't understand what new should I do. I don't know what should I do which will be different from all that I have already done," the actor said in an interview. Riteish, who will be seen in Sajid Khan's upcoming film 'Humshakals', said he has tried doing different genre of films in the past like 'Naach' and 'Rann' but the movies did not work and hence he did more comedies, which were accepted by the audience."'Humshakals' is exciting for me because I get to work with Saif, whose comic timing is totally different from mine, so our combination is interesting. I also got to work with Ram Kapoor and Sajid has given me great films, so this was the exciting part," he said.

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is entering the fiction space on TV with "Yudh", no proposition is safer. He says it's a "gamble you have to take when you are in this field" and that "only best content will succeed". In 2000, when the big screen's big hero decided to descend upon the small screen as the host of "Kaun Banega Crorepati", people were doubtful about his decision. But his risk paid off and over the years the game show's popularity hasn't diminished at all.Now, once again his decision to do fiction show for TV is raising questions.When asked is it a safer preposition, he said: "Nothing is safe in this world. Whether you are doing little creativity or little performance on stage, or doing cinema or any kind of art, how would you know what the result is going to be?" "We take sufficient precautions but at times we fail, at times we succeed. So this is a gamble that you have to take when you are in this field," he added.
