Sanjay Dutt has finally married his long time girl friend girlfriend Manyata (Dilnawaz Shaikh) on February 7. The wedding, which was attended by close friends, was performed under the Special Marriage Act in Goa.  This is Dutt's third marriage after his divorce proceedings against former model Rhea Pillai was formally completed last month. Manyata, a small time actress is mostly known for an item number in Prakash Jha's Gangajal. Last month Dutt shocked everyone when an advertisement in Saamna, a Shiv Sena mouthpiece appeared pronouncing him and Manyata as Sanjay Dutt and Manyata Dutt, while congratulating Shiv Sena Supremo, Bal Thackeray on his 82nd birthday.

It was in 1996 that Tabu and Abbas acted as two young collegians in love in Kadhal Desam. The film was a huge hit with both the Tamil and Telugu audience. Now, after 12 years, the two are coming together again -- this time as husband and wife in the Telugu Friday (February 22) release, Idhi Sangathi.  Abbas says of the film, "The script was good and so was the team. The director is portraying me not in the usual chocolate boy way. I play Tabu's husband, a man in his mid-30s which is why I look different in the film." On his attractive co-star, Abbas says, "Tabu is very professional and is amazingly natural and effortless as an actor."

Writer-director Anees Bazmi who delivered one of the biggest hits of 2007 Welcome is very angry and upset by the fate of his film in Pakistan. Speaking on the subject frankly Anees said, "I had no clue my Welcome was to be released in Pakistan! Nobody told me anything about it…not even producer Feroz Nadiadwala. I guess once I direct and deliver a film it's no longer my intellctual or commercial property. Fair enough. But what was the harm if I was told about such a big event in my life as filmmaker?" What hurt and offended Anees even more was that one of his main characters played by Feroz Khan has been totally obliterated in Pakistan. "I understand Feroz Khan Saab had some problems with the local authorities in Pakistan when he visited there and made some remarks they didn't like. But why should my film suffer for that? His role is very important in Welcome. He's there for nearly an hour of the film's 2 -hour playing time. By cutting his track in the plot, you're reducing my film to incoherency! I find that hard to accept."

After leaving cinegoers as well as people from the film world teary-eyed with a poignant tale of 'carefree childhood lost under societal norms of perfectionism' in his debut directorial venture 'Taare Zameen Par', Aamir will go bald for his latest production venture 'Ghajini', shooting for which resumed yesterday. Writing on his blog, Aamir, whose directorial skills in 'Taare Zameen par' as well as his portrayal of the art teacher Ram Shankar Nikumbh earned him accolades galore from cinegoers and critics not only in India, but also abroad, said he would be shaving off his head for 'Ghajini', which features him in the lead. ''I will indeed be shaving off my head for Ghajini as around half the film requires me to,''Aamir said. Aamir said shooting for 'Ghajini', a remake of the South Indian hit 'Pokkirri', which resumed yesterday in Mumbai.
