If reports are to be believed, Kareena Kapoor was offered the sequel to her first hit -- Satish Kaushik's Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai -- but apparently, she turned it down.

Tusshar Kapoor, who made his debut with this film, clarified on the matter: 'The film, a 3 heroine film, was never offered to her. The article seems to be concocted to make news. I hope things stand clarified now. For all those who read the article about Kareena refusing to do Satish ji's film, let me inform you that it's totally fabricated,' he tweeted.

The grapevine also says that Tusshar would be playing a double role in the sequel. But we'd rather wait for Tusshar's tweet confirming this one.

Abhishek Bachchan, who met with an accident on the sets of Bol Bachchan in Jaipur last week, is now back in action.

'Touchdown Jaipur. Back to the pink city and back to work :-) The cut heals and the stitches have been removed. All due to the wishes and prayers of all of you. THANK YOU!' he tweeted.

The accident has left a scar on his face and wife Aishwarya is trying to downplay it, or so believes Abhishek.

'The father and mrs. In an attempt to make me feel better told me that a scar on the face adds character and apparently even looks sexy!!! Not too sure about that. The airhostess on my flight to Jaipur refused to serve me and when I disembarked from the plane had the look.... Of sheer horror on her face. Let's see how it goes down with the female co-stars tomorrow,' he added.

Akshay Kumar is in a fix. The actor, who had hired MTV to promote and tweet about his film Speedy Singhs, has ended up offending many Sikh fans with anti-Sikh comments and jokes in the film.

Akshay sprung to damage-control mode as soon as it came to his attention.

'Dear All, I set out to produce #SpeedySinghs coz I love sports and always take an initiative to do my bit in that direction. I have recently come across a third-party promotion of the film on social media by a TV channel that has offended some fans. Let me assure you that has not been done by us as part of the film's promotion and I have already spoken to the channel to withdraw this immediately. Even though not deliberate, I deeply apologize if this has offended any one. I remain completely respectful of all sentiments,' he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Shilpa Shetty praised the film. 'Watched "SPEEDY SINGHS" at a trial really enjoyed it, gr8music too.Vinay Virmani was so endearing. Must watch tweetos,releasing 23rd Sept:) :)' she wrote.
