The story of Deepak Sawant, Amitabh Bachchan’s make-up man for the past four decades has been one of unflinching loyalty and service. At an event held recently to unveil the first look of his film Leader, produced by Sawant, Bachchan said, “Sawant meri chehre ki dekhbaal chaalis saal se kar raha hai”. To which Sawant, while seeking Big B’s blessings humbly said, “The Bachchans, right from Amitji, Jayaji, Abhishek and everyone, have given me so much love and respect over the years. Amitji is my Lord Ram while Jayaji is Sita and I am their Hanuman. I shall always stay loyal to them.”

Meanwhile, Gulshan Grover who was also present at the first look launch of Leader had an interesting tale to narrate.
Grover who lives at Versova Andheri in Mumbai had anticipated the Sunday traffic, and left home well in time, only to be caught in the traffic jam at the junction near Hotel J.W. Marriott where the event was held. As the traffic moved at a snail’s pace, Grover aware that Amitabh Bachchan is always punctual, sprinted out of his car, much to the surprise of his driver as well as people on the streets. But, even as he headed towards the hotel’s gate, he was stopped by the security guard who did not realise that he was indeed the bad man of cinema and quickly frisked him like he would do to any other commoner.
Guess, even celebrities have to go through the drill of living a common man’s existence once in a while.
The reading bug has bit Sunny Leone. She was recently seen engrossed in the book titled She Devils: True Stories of the World’s Most Notorious Female Serial Killers written by Anne McDuff and published by Magna Books. The book examines the cases of the world’s most notorious female killers, revealing the horrific stories behind their crimes and the inner workings of the twisted minds of women who kill. If sources are to be believed, the bestselling book, that is available on the stands now, will be made into a movie.
After Ragini MMS 2, maybe Leone will be comfortable doing this film.
