Imaandaar No 1
Honesty is the best policy. But few from our Bollywood brigade can boast of being more honest than apna Hero No 1, GOVINDA. Not only has he admitted to his die-hard latecoming habit and chaotic time management, now he has gone one step further and even confessed to having fed movie halls showing ‘Anari No 1’ to ensure that the film appears to be a big hit. Of course, he has his reasons too. Like, how about "the film was not properly marketed”? Then Govinda goes one step further and elaborates on why he was forced to do it. “The distributor chose the worst theatres... which is enough reason to make the audience stay at home. In such cases, it is the done thing to feed the theatre. If the distributor doesn't do it on his own, we help him along.” There, he's given away the trade secret of so many of his colleagues. So now we know why some movies, however.
Back to the future
The future's so bright, she'll need shades. Tomorrow belongs to AISHWARYA RAI who seems to have finally proved her detractors wrong. The stiffness is gone, as you will notice in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. Instead, there's warmth in those eyes once described as cold and distant. With ‘Taal’ she may not have raised eyebrows, but has established once again that she’s no mannequin...
And if anyone thought this was the end of her rainbow, they've got another thing coming. Soon she'll be spotted playing Shah Rukh Khan’s sister in Mansoor Khan’s ‘Josh’. Then, she’ll team with Aamir and Shah Rukh both, for Rajkumar Santoshi’s next. And before the end of 2000, Ash will have featured in Aditya Chopra’s ' Mohabbatein’ along with Shah Rukh once again. Well, so Ash is on a roll now and it's all thanks to God and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Bal in your court
And we hear Rohit Bal that fashion designer is all for the ban of mobile phones. For this is
what he has to say: “Driving while talking on mobile phones are very unsafe. The driver is obviously not concentrating. In fact, it is physically impossible to do so. In fact, whole lot of other things like using seat belts, not seating children on the front seat should be made mandatory.”
