Although Bipasha Basu confessed her love for beau Harman Baweja on Twitter and even re-tweeted a few messages on love tips and advice, the actor took a good fifteen minutes at an event on the same day to admit that he is dating the Bengali diva. Several journalists kept asking Baweja to confirm his relationship status, but the actor just didn’t budge, while stating that such things are extremely personal. But the media persons persisted and kept asking him the same question repeatedly, adding that Basu had already made things public. Baweja simply stood there, blushing and smiling like a boy who was truly, madly and deeply in love. No matter how much he tried to avoid the question, Baweja ultimately agreed and said, “Bipasha has been very generous with her words and yes, we are dating each other. She is being modest by saying that I am a better person. But, we all know who is the best.”
At the launch of the new Magnum ice cream, Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is the newly-appointed brand ambassador of the ice-cream, was asked if she cooks for her hubby Saif Ali Khan. The beautiful actress retorted cheekily with “Main apne haathon se banati nahin hoon, par apne haathon se khilati zaroor hoon!” Even as everyone burst into peals of laughter, the actress went on to say that she is a good cook. “The sign of a good cook is making good dal and I make it very well! My mom (Babita) and sister (Karisma Kapoor) tell me that I make excellent dal,” she chirped.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra was on cloud nine during the promotions of her first production venture, Dishkiyaoon. Although the actress was at her vivacious best, one could see her getting misty eyed while talking about her new venture. “Trust me, turning producer is no easy task. Working as an actor was, hands down, so much easier. I was just telling someone that kisiko punish karna ho toh producer bana do. But after looking at the final product, I can say that at least film toh aachi lag rahi hain na,” she quipped. One couldn’t help but notice an interesting bullet pendant that she has been sporting for quite sometime now. Shetty adds, “I have been wearing this ever since we started shooting for the film. It has the Dishkiyaoon effect.” Now that is one producer who is taking film promotions to a whole new level, isn’t it?
