The showbiz lights are dim. There are no new releases at the multiplex because of the stalemate with the producers and distributors forum. No new projects are going on the floors because of the recession. Moreover the films that are ready for release are being kept in the cans till the IPL gets over.

Everything is S-L-O-W!

So it’s a good time to find out what is keeping our superstars busy.

Well,most stars are taking it easy. Those who are shooting at present are mostly giving finishing touches to projects that have already rolled. Like Amitabh Bachchan,who is shooting in Madh Island for Ram Gopal Varma’s tentatively tiled India 24X7. Son Abhishek Bachchan and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai are amidst the last schedule of Mani Ratnam’s Ravana.

Shahid Kapoor is busy wrapping up the Yash Raj film where he co-stars with Rani Mukerji. Saif Ali Khan is gearing up for the post production of his maiden production,Love Aaj Kal. Salman Khan is another star shooting round the clock. He has just returned from a marathon schedule of Veer in Jodhpur and is now off to London to film the remaining portions of the Anil Sharma directed venture.

The stars who aren’t filming are busy with commercials and vacations. Aamir Khan for instance has taken off for a two month vacation to Los Angeles with his kids,Junaid and Ira. His nephew Imran Khan is busy reading scripts by the dozen in his Pali Hill home. Imran’s good friend Ranbir Kapoor is shooting commercials round the clock after wrapping up Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani with Katrina Kaif.

Hrithik Roshan has just returned after a commercial shoot in South Africa. The actor is busy giving denials about rumours of a rift in his marriage with wife Sussane after a Mumbai tabloid reported that Hrithik’s proximity to his Kites co-star Barbara Mori. Just for the record,Mr and Mrs Roshan maintain all is well in their household and that it was because of a termite problem that Sussane had moved out of the Roshan family home. As of now,Hrithik and his family have made JW Marriott their temporary home.

Akshay Kumar,who got into a spot with his unbuttoning act at the Lakme Fashion Week,is in South Africa shooting for the second season of his show Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. His wife Twinkle was arrested for two hours and then let off on bail for that ramp stunt that her husband made her a part of.

Talking of South Africa,soon you might mistake it for Film City what with the likes of Shah Rukh Khan,Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty camping there for the second season of IPL. Out of the three,SRK will be milking his air miles the most since he intends to fly his family and friends for most of the Kolkata Knight Riders matches and also make fleeting appearances in Mumbai to shoot for My Name Is Khan.

Meanwhile,Ajay Devgan is waiting for the next schedule of Rajniti to begin after work on his home production All The Best is held up because of Sanjay Dutt. who is busy campaigning for the Samajwadi Party. Don’t be surprised if Ajay also shoots a commercial here and there since there is so much little work happening any which way.

Bollywood needs some action,seriously!
