Sanjay Dutt does some special Banking
Actor Sanjay Dutt and his wife have joined the list of celebrities who have used LifeCell to preserve their children’s umbilical cord stem cells. The actor’s wife Manyata gave birth to twins – one boy and one girl – in October this year, and the couple then decided to preserve the stem cells as they feel it is “the best gift which parents can provide to their children for a secure future”. Other B-town stars who have used this service include Hrithik Roshan, Raveena Tandon and Southie star Madhavan.
Sexiest Man Alive…
People India magazine have named actor Salman Khan as the “Sexiest Man Alive”. Contrary to popular belief, he is not a gym-lover – he says that he works out because he has to! What are your thoughts on Salman Khan?
Bhansali signs Abhishek
Abhishek Bachchan, son of Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, and a talented actor in his own right, has been signed for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next venture. SLB recently released Guzaarish which stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Abhishek will be the third of the Bachchan clan to work with SLB, after his father did so with Black, and his wife worked with the esteemed film-maker for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and most recently, Guzaarish. No real details about the plot have been disclosed, but SLB says that it is not a period film, and it tackles the issues that are thrown in the path of a young person, by the government. Let’s hope this film fares better for Abhishek, as his current release Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is not going down too well with audiences.
Vidya Balan’s “Dirty Picture”
Actress Vidya Balan is to star in a film entitled “A Dirty Picture”, and will play a character based on “Silk” Smitha; a South Indian actress who was known for her raunchy item numbers and sensual scenes. The film will be directed by Milan Luthria (who also did 2010 film “Once Upon A Time in Mumbai”), and he has said that the film will show “Indian sensuality at its best”. Vidya recently showed a slightly more sensual side to her usual demure character in Vishal Bharadwaj’s “Ishqiya”, but it seems like this new project will venture even more into the realms of sensuality! Perhaps the gorgeous saree shots from her shoot for the November issue of FHM India give us a little taster…?
