Abhishek Bachchan, who has rapped in two of his movies, Bluffmaster and Dum Maaro Dum, has time and again made his love for hip-hop music very evident. Following in junior’s step, is Amitabh Bachchan grooving to a hip-hop number with Honey Singh in Bhoothnath Returns. It won’t be wrong to assume that Big B, may have made Abhishek hear the number. “Yes, Abhishek heard the song even when it was in scratch form, and later, when it was finally ready, and he’s loved it!” says Bachchan. Now, won’t it be a treat for the fans to see father and son rapping away together, soon?
It was delightful to see two former title holders, Miss Universe Sushmita Sen and Miss Asia Pacific International Dia Mirza bonding at the party held by producer Vashu Bhagnani to celebrate 25 films during his 20 years tenure as a producer. The anchor happened to call Dia first on stage to say a few words about Bhagnani. Instead of heading for the stage, Dia prodded Sushmita, who is her senior to go on stage first. The gesture touched Sen and after both finished the formalities, were seen sitting next to each other and chatting away like old friends.
It was amusing to see the pretty Preity Zinta happily reach for a samosa at a small gathering in her building. The petite actress tucked into the food item, that is laden with calories and generally a taboo for all actors who are always conscious of their waistlines and figures. On seeing our amazement and maybe shock, the actress chuckled as she relished the sumptuous snack. “I travel so much around the world and don’t get to eat samosas, so I dabao them when I see them.”
