no prude, but...
IN Bollywood, it is not easy for a
heroine to stick to her principles and that too at the
risk of losing out on a prestigious film. But Suman
Ranganathan has her priorities straight: When she says
no, she really means no.
Yes, this long legged, dusky damsel
created quite a furore in filmland by refusing to wear a
bikini for the picturisation of a song in one of her
movies. The nonplussed producer (a top financier) has
reportedly threatened to replace her. But Ranganathan is
sticking to her guns reiterating that theres
absolutely no justification in being asked to strip
When reminded of her revealing dresses in Aa ab laut
chalen, Suman fires back: Sure, the story, the
setting and the character were backing me up all the way,
so everything was appropriate and very natural. But I
have no intention of dropping my clothes just because of
film-maker wants to sizzle up some scenes for the heck of
it, thank you! Otherwise, everybody knows that Suman
Ranganathan is no prude.....
What is it about Aishwarya Rai that makes her keep
signing on some of the biggest movies? It is almost as if
she has a personal angel perched on her shoulder...
ensuring that Ash has her hands full always.
And this, despite the fact that she has yet to claim the
dubious distinction of having given a hit film. Besides,
most folks would agree that, all said and done, Aishwarya
is, at best, a beautiful face and little else! She tends
to leave one rather cold when it comes to high
During the last couple of weeks, out of twenty odd movies
finalised Aishwarya is the leading lady in more that
Fried eggs galore
If theres one thing Sanjay Dutt simply cannot
resist, its fried eggs! Maybe it is a lingering
conditioning from his high school days at Sanawar (near
the Shimla hills) where Sanju studied for many years and
where his favourite dish in the extras (to be
paid out of pocket on the spot) was to gobble down as
many fried eggs as he hurriedly could.
Not that it was easy. The head cook had to be coaxed so
that even at lunch or dinner time, a generous
under-the-counter helping of the delicacy was always
available for Dutt Jr. and, since Dad Sunil Dutt kept
sonny on a pretty tight financial leash, the invariably
cash-strapped Sanju to had devise just about every method
to ensure that he got what he relished in plenty.
This woman refuses to be cowed down. Webbed in by a
pending case against her for pornographic
photographs on the cover of Stardust some years
ago, shed been avoiding coming to court all this
time. But, on May 31, she surrendered herself
before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate. KH
Holambe-Patil two days before her legal summons
Obviously, Mamta had expected to beat the publicity and
the press by doing so, but she was in for a (rude)
surprise! Clearly a step ahead, the journalists,
photographers and the TV teams were swarming the place
much before Mamtas limo screeched in. So, poor Ms
Kulkarni had no option but to keep her cool and smile as
best as she could.
The excitement in the courtroom was over even before
having begun. The criminal charge of violating the
provisions of the Indecent Representation of Women Act
attracted a petty fine of a few thousand rupees.
