Recently one of ourstaffers was strollingalong the famous Linking Road area of Bandra in Mumbai, a veritable shopper's paradise. And guess what he saw?

Salman'sfather Salim Khan was getting out of his car to enter one of the many jewelry shops there.
Seeing him, thewatchman and salesmenrushed out to give him a helping hand.

A dashingKhanSr, whohad a gold earring inone ofhis ears,
went on to select somejewelry. We don't know whatthe occasion was, but we do know he was not shopping for himself.Consideringthat Salmanwill turn 40 this December, could it be that he is about to tie the knot?

Has it got anything to dowith his girlfriend Katrina Kaif who has moved closer to the Khans' home and has bought a new flat nearby? We hopewe are right. And if it turns out so,rememberyougot itfirst on!

Amisha's love saga

Poor Amisha Patel! She is always in the news for all the wrong reasons.

The latest one is about singer Adnan Sami's alleged affair with her.
The actress has so much to offerand wehave seen herperform so well ininnumerable films. Butthe media takes greater interestinher personal life orherfalling out with her parents over money.

Now when things are going good for her, comes the news of the Adnan Sami thing.
How cananyone spread such rumours?

Anyway, weknowAdnan isno longer in the news, as his songs have hit a record low. Therefore,he (perhaps) is fanning the rumour for the sake of publicity.
If you are in love with someactress it is fine, Adnan. But why do you need toutter half-truths?Come up with your lover's name orjust keep mum. Whyrake inpoor Amisha's name? It seemsAdnanis desperate.After all, negative publicity too isgood publicity, isn't it?

Govinda's lesson

Film personalities must never takeon the media. This is the lessonactor turned member of Parliament Govinda must havelearnt.

A few months ago, when India TV was carrying out its sting operations against actors,there was no need for the out-of work actorto support the'victims', actors Aman Verma and Shakti Kapoor.But
Govinda felt it was unethical, inappropriate and unjustified on the part of India TV, and voiced his opinion.

Salman Khan toostood by Verma and Kapoor butthat's another story. For,the media has always bashed him up to kick upnewspapercirculation andTRPs.
Be it the killing of a black buck,his famous hit and run,and more recently boasting to Aishwarya Rai overphonethat he has underworld connections, Salman has indeed kept the media busy.

Of course,thefilm industry stood bySalman irrespective of his alleged wrong-doings.

Now that it is Govinda's turn to face the music over the Dawood tape, let's hopehe gets the same support from Bollywood too.

Is Ramu okay?

What is happening to Ram Gopal Varma?
Too many of his friends have turnedfoes.

Is his arroganceto blame? Or is it that his co-workers expect too much of him? We don't know.

Manoj Bajpaieyeda hero's rolein Satyaand Ramu was keen he play Bhiku Mhatre, but Manoj wasn't happy.T
he list of Manoj Bajpais seems to be growing. Director of James, Rohit Jugraj, has fallen out with Varma and so has (we are told)actor Randeep Hooda, the protagonist in D.What is more shocking,evenco-producer K Sera Sera has called it quitswith Ramu.The duodidabout a dozen films together.

Ramu, wehave great respect for your capabilities, and
hopethings work out well for you in future.
