Karan Johar, Jatin Lalit spar, split
Director Karan Johar and music directors Jatin Lalit have had a falling out.
Although the musicians had worked with Karan Johar for both Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, they recently stated in an interview that they were upset with Karan's decision to use other music directors for K3G.
The director, who hasn't taken this lightly, has now declared that Jatin Lalit will never work in any Karan Johar film.
The seventh Mumbai International Film Festival will be on from February 3 to February 9, 2002.
MIFF, the Film Division's bi-annual festival, will showcase acclaimed international and national films and documentaries produced in the last two years which will compete for the Golden Conch and other awards.
The opening film Into the Arms of Strangers, directed by Marck Jonathan and Deborah Oppenheimer is an Oscar-nominated documentary about the British rehabilitation mission to rescue Jews, pre-World War II. The festival concludes with the equally acclaimed Big Mama, directed by Tracy Serekan: A saga of an 89-year-old African-American woman raising a nine-year-old kid in central Los Angeles, another Oscar-nominated film.
Fardeen dumps Ruheen
We hear Fardeen Khan has called it quits with girlfriend Ruheen. Apparently, his Kitne Door Kitne Paas costar Amrita Arora is to be blamed.
Ruheen has apparently rushed back to Delhi to nurse her broken heart while Fardeen is more than content at being footloose and fancy free again.
Sunny, My Hero
This has to be straight out of Ripleys Believe It Or Not. A certain Sunny Deol fan, Santosh Sarathe, went rolling 10 kilometres to a cinema to honour the actor. Sarathe rolled his way over potholes and through animal dung to get to the cinema!
That's not all. He claims to have watched every single Sunny film over 30 times.
