Ah yes, dahlinnnn… we are back to do­ing shava shava with PeeCee and her ‘Nick’elodeon. Sup­pos­edly, after that grand roka cer­e­mony in Mum­bai, a spec­tac­u­lar wed­ding is in the off­ing. But sur­prise of sur­prises, it’s not Priyanka who is in a hurry to get mar­ried but the com­pletely be­sot­ted Nick who wants to have the world at his feet by mar­ry­ing this ex-Miss World. Noth­ing makes the world go ‘round bet­ter than love, right?

Talk­ing about love, we can’t help but smile at the lovestruck Deepika Padukone and Ran­veer Singh. Sup­pos­edly, they threw cau­tion to the winds, and like care­free lovers, strolled through the ro­man­tic paths in the US, smoochin’ and hug­ging like all lovers. And when a fan caught sight of them, though Ran­veer sported a frown dark as thun­der, it was our dim­pled Deepika who sweetly smiled and coaxed Ran­veer to pose for a selfie with the girl. Deepi sure has tamed the Simm­baa.

As for the su­per hot Ran­veer Singh… he sure is go­ing places. As a strug­gler, he had once ex­pressed his de­sire to work with the gor­geous Ka­reena Kapoor Khan. And now voila, KJo played God­fa­ther and got the two ac­tors to­gether for his ensem­ble film Takht. Ran­veer is of course over the moon, as for our Bebo, she gra­ciously tweeted all nawabi style that she was “hon­oured” to share screen space with the Simmba ac­tor. This is one film that’s go­ing to hot up the sil­ver screen, we say!

Okay so we said, ‘Ka­reena’ but that doesn’t re­ally mean that we’re go­ing to start rav­ing about the cute as a pud­ding Taimur. But it is a fact that the celebrity sta­tus that li’l Taimur has is un­matched by any­body else in the fa­mous Pataudi clan. The story goes that a whole host of shut­ter­bugs lay in wait for the Pataudi fam­ily to arise out of their ivory tower. But guess what, though Ka­reena with hubby Saif Ali Khan, his daugh­ter Sara and son Ibrahim got the pho­tog­ra­phers go click­ety click. It was Taimur who got the paps’ in a tizzy. In fact, his nanny and he got mobbed more than the other Pataudis. How’s that for pre­mium celeb sta­tus?

Talk­ing about the Kapoors, let’s go to the other Kapoors. It seems like the bond be­tween Ar­jun Kapoor and Jan­hvi Kapoor is grow­ing stronger by the day. Right from shut­ting up shamers on the so­cial me­dia, to shar­ing cute pics on in­sta, the duo seems to be gelling re­ally quite well. And to think Ar­jun had just con­fessed last year that he had ab­so­lutely no re­la­tion­ship with Jan­hvi and Khushi. Time sure changes things.

Aha, talk­ing about Ar­jun, we can’t help but spec­u­late about the hot vibes be­tween him and the smokin’ hot Malaika Arora. Of course, ru­mours of a hush hush al­leged af­fair has been do­ing the ‘rounds for quite some time. But the duo set tongues re­ally wag­ging for sure when they chose to sit to­gether dur­ing a fash­ion show re­cently. They seemed to be hit­ting off very well and were even joined by Ar­jun’s sis­ters Jan­hvi and Khushi. All eyes in fact were firmly on them rather than the ramp!

By the way did you know that papa Boney Kapoor is com­pletely against Ar­jun hav­ing any­thing to do with the svelte Malaika. For one, he thinks that his ladla beta should con­cen­trate on his ca­reer at this junc­ture. But more im­por­tantly, he be­lieves that Malaika be­ing Ar­baaz Khan’s ex wife and a part of the Sul­tan Sal­man Khan’s fam­ily, is off lim­its. But does Ar­jun care? Naah, he’s busy singing ‘Papa don’t preach’ on the top of his voice.

Ar­jun sure is a fave with us this month… He got us dou­bling over with laugh­ter when he cap­tioned a su­per sexy in­stapick of the stun­ning Ka­t­rina Kaif hold­ing her lus­cious locks with: Do you have dan­druff, Ka­t­rina? We don’t know what gaalis Ka­t­rina gave Ar­jun, but we say, this Pun­jabi munda has a rib-tick­ling funny bone.

As for Kat, seems like she has found a new BFF in B-town. And it’s not the ‘BFF turned boyfriend-grab­ber’ Alia Bhatt any longer. No sur­prises, it’s the Sul­tan Sal­man Khan’s sis­ter Alvira Khan. Sup­pos­edly, on her re­cent shoot sched in Malta, the Chikni Chameli posted an aww wor­thy cosy pic­ture of the two of them hug­ging each other and cap­tioned it: My heart. Seems like Miss Kaif is mak­ing fur­ther in­roads into the Khan-daan once again!

Talk­ing of the Khan of the Khans, Sal­man Khan. He’s got a strange pen­chant …and it’s a ha­tred for the Sanju boy Ran­bir Kapoor. Not only was Sal­man ex­tremely can­did about Ran­bir be­ing the wrong choice to play San­jay Dutt, he was also very vo­cal that San­jay Dutt should have played him­self in the older avatar. Won­der what has made Ran­bir tick off Sal­man Khan, any guesses, Kat?

Kat’s-ex, Ran­bir Kapoor, how­ever, doesn’t re­ally care. He’s too in­volved with his love and lat­est muse, Alia Bhatt. And this time ‘round, he seems to have turned into her per­sonal pho­tog­ra­pher. The Raazi bomb­shell keeps post­ing pretty pic­tures of her­self on so­cial me­dia and gives the cred­its to her beau Ran­bir. That’s a cute love story un­fold­ing…

And guess what… a lit­tle birdie in­formed us that the 25-year-old Alia Bhatt sup­pos­edly will most prob­a­bly be ty­ing the knot with her 36-year-old boyfriend Ran­bir Kapoor in 2019. Mama Neetu and papa Rishi Kapoor love Alia and is all for Ran­bir get­ting hitched to her. As for the Bhatts, we don’t re­ally know whether they ap­prove or not. Papa Ma­hesh Bhatt when asked gave such a long wind­ing and con­fus­ing an­swer that we too were left scratch­ing our heads.

An­other be­wil­dered and un­happy man is film­maker Tig­man­shu Dhu­lia after Sa­heb, Biwi Aur Gang­ster 3’s colos­sal flop. When he re­port­edly asked about what was wrong, Tig­man­shu ap­par­ently said that when his films don’t work, he switches off and feels de­pressed. He ap­par­ently also took the blame of the flop on him­self and ex­pressed un­cer­tainty of a se­quel too. Hmm… hope you feel well soon Mr Dhu­lia.

As for San­jay Dutt who was bank­ing on Sa­heb, Biwi Aur Gang­ster 3 more so as it came close on the heels of the stu­pen­dous suc­cess of Sanju, was ex­tremely

de­spon­dent that the film flopped too. Iron­i­cally, the suc­cess of Sanju did mar­vels to every­body’s ca­reer ex­cept the real San­jay Dutt. Dutt is the way of life, we say!

As for a way of life, after dodg­ing all those queries about her sur­prise mar­riage and preg­nancy, Neha Dhu­pia has at last come out in the open and spilled the beans. She is eight months preg­nant. So why on earth did she lie at all? Didn’t she know her baby bump would pin­point her ear­lier lie sooner than later?

By the way, did you know that crick­eter Yu­vraj Singh and An­gad Bedi are friends no more… And it’s all be­cause Yuvi was not in­vited for An­gad and Neha’s sur­prise wed­ding. Come on, Yuvi be a sport… this mar­riage was so se­cre­tive for a rea­son… and it’s taken nine months for it to come out.

The very forth­right Taapsee Pannu, how­ever, prefers no fil­ters. When asked about some tan­gled con­tro­ver­sies re­gard­ing her film Mulk, she can­didly re­torted, “That is ex­actly what we wanted, not the
