Priyanka’s Post-Engagement  Party Was A Very Intimate Affair

No Karan Johar, No Ranbir Kapoor at Priyanka Chopra’s very intimate get-together on Saturday night attended by a handful of selected guests.

One of the very special invitees said, “Priyanka had personally phoned and invited just about 15-20 guests for dinner. She wanted the people who matter in her life to meet the love of her life. She personally took Nick Jonas around and introduced him to every guest at the  get-together”

The guest list was surprisingly small. While filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Alia Bhatt along with Priyanka’s cousin Parineetiwere prominently present, conspicuous by his absence was everyone’s favourite party animal Karan Johar, leading to whispered innuendoes on all not being well between Praiyanka and the Shah Rukh/Johar team.

Guest were surprised when Salman Khan’s sister Arpita showed up. Priyanka lately walked out of Salman’s film Bharat, a move that Salman expressed public disapproval of.

Ranveer-Deepika, Katrina-Ranbir and no member of the Bachchan parivar was present.

 “It was a very small get-together meant to introduce Nick Jonas to Priyanka’s special guests. She personally introduced Nick to each guest. He came across as very courteous well-behaved and most importantly, attentive and devoted to Priyanka. She only had to signal for him to be by her side to meet one of her guests, and Nick was right there,” says the invitee.

Manmarziyaan Movie Review: It Is Kashyap’s Moun Ragam!

Manmarziyaan Movie Review
Manmarziyaan Movie Review: It Is Kashyap’s Moun Ragam!

Manmarziyan

Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Tapsee Pannu, Vicky Kushal

Directed by Anurag Kashyap

Rating: **** ½(4 and a  half stars)

Imagine if Mani Ratnam had sex in his mind for Moun Ragam. Yes, the same story that Sanjay Leela Bhansali made into Hum… Dil Chuke Sanam about a marriage of inconvenience where the kind patient husband desists from consummating the marriage until the wife comes out of her earlier relationship.

Imagine if the wife can’t come out of her stuporous obsession with her first love because, hell, the sex with Vicky (Kaushal) is toooooo good.

The girlfriend-wife is played by Tapsee Pannu who seems to get more confident with every film. Her Rumi is no walkover for sure. Nor is it someone you would want as your wife, or your son’s wife or even as son’s friend’s wife. She is an unabashed epicurean and the fact that Tapsee can play this super-annoying selfish woman without making us cringe is in equal measures a triumph of writing (Kannika Dhillon) and performing.

Take the sequence where Tapsee’s Rumi rides a mobike to her future husband’s home and tells him, sorry, she can’t marry him. But hey, she can talk to him on Facebook. And she rides off.

Outrageously self-absorbed Tapsee plays Kangana’s smalltown harridan from Tanu Weds Manu multiplied by 10. She is vixenish yet spontaneous, arrogant in her selfishness and yet not unlikeable. Tapsee brings out all the contradictions in her character. She spares us none of Rumi’s churlishness. By the time she heads to Kashmir for her honeymoon with her husband on the rebound, I was hoping someone would slap this unapologetic self-server hard.

Fate does that. The trouble with a pleasure-seeker like Rumi is, she is given a lot of leeway by the people around her. Her Punjabi joint family consternation at her sickeningly self-gratifying behaviour with Vicky comes through in spurts of hurt and indignation.

Not that Rumi cares. She is arguably the most annoyingly self-absorbed romantic heroine seen on screen. Vicky Kaushal as her cheesy DJ lover has worked hard on looking his part. The hair and the clothes and the body language exude a sense of self-limiting rebellion. It is never very clear whether the passion between Vicky and Rumi is all about sex, or something more.

While Tapsee and Vicky give bust to their robust parts, it is Abhishek Bachchan, whose quiet character creates a space in the heart of the plot and lodges itself in the library of the luminous by respecting the character’s need to remain noble without seeming over-sweetened or simply stupid.

Trending: Are Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani the New Couple?

Manmarziyan takes the traditional love triangle to a new level of expression, articulating an idiom that cannot entirely avoid tedium. After Rumi marries Robbie the narrative runs out of steam. There are repetitive scenes in the second-half which could do with some serious pruning. In spite of its flawed flow due to its extended length, Manmarziyan is a winsome romantic tale which dares to ask a very basic question from diehard romantics: love is all very well, but what else?

Why Are Tabloids Still Writing About Aishwarya & Salman?

Why Are Tabloids Still Writing About Aishwarya & Salman

A story doing its lascivious rounds says Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan “avoided” each other at an event.

This is as ridiculous as it can get. Why would they not avoid each other? Should the two blow air kisses and hold each other’s hand in public while the cameras go berserk? The truth is, Aishwarya is too dignified to indulge in attention-getting tamashas. We-are-still-friends gimmicks are not for her.

In any case, why is a section of our media so obsessed with seeing ex-es together in public? Whether it is Shahid and Kareena or Ranbir and Katrina, not all partings are what a great man picturesquely described as “sweet sorrow”. Not every couple is as comfortable running into one another after their split as Deepika-Ranbir and Hrithik-Sussanne.

And are Deepika and Sussanne really as happy and comfortable seeing their ex-es—both of whom are known to  indulge in excess, and we shall not elaborate on that—as we see them being? How painful is it for these two ladies to be reminded of their past even as they keep up appearances of normalcy with their former partner who betrayed them deeply.

Aishwarya’s parting with Salman was not pleasant. She has moved on in life, far ahead. Today she’s a happy wife and an ecstatic mother. She has left her past behind. Why can’t the more inquisitive sections of the media also do the same? Let the past be? I know ex-es make great pictures when they are both celebrities. But have a heart. Even celebrities need that freedom to not have their pasts breathing down their necks.

Forget sweet-sorrow, some partings are just dreadful. And they can’t even be discussed as partings because their togetherness was not discussed in the public space in the first place. In fact, some of the most celebrated liaisons of filmdom have been kept a secret by the entire media because there were wives and children involved.

Not that the inquisitive media suddenly got sensitive. It was the fear of repercussions that kept the nosy parkers off-limits regarding certain high-profile liaisons in Bollywood. We all pretend Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are the  freshest couples in town and that she never looked for love anywhere else.

With Ranbir Kapoor, the search never ends. And boy, isn’t that fun for the paparazzi. No fear of sacked for reporting whom this guy is seeing every year.

Shatrughan Sinha & Family Every Week In Theatres, Wife Poonam Sinha To Make a Comeback

Sonakshi and I both make a guest appearance for my dear friend Dharmendra in Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se. And then the week after that on September 7 my son Luv Sinha would be seen in J P Dutta’s war epic Paltan.”

Shatruji has seen his children’s work in the above-mentioned films. And he is proud of them. “Sonakshi is a very sorted actress. She understands the craft and today she can carry a film on her shoulder as she did earlier in Noor and Akira and now in Happy Phir Bhaag Jayegi. My son Luv had made an unsuccessful debut some years ago. JP Saab’s Paltan will be his real introduction to movie-going audiences as Shatrughan Sinha’s son.”

The Sinha family’s binge in the theatres doesn’t end there. If all goes well. The matriarch of the family Poonam Sinha will be back on the screen with her husband in a film to be directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi.

Laughs Shatruji, “I guess we are the consummate showbiz family. Nobody can keep us away from our first love. The cinema is where we have received the maximum fame and love. Poonam and I have worked years ago in Sabak when we were not married. We’d be constantly fighting During the shooting of that film we were not even on talking terms.”
