WHERE IS VIDHU?
Vidhu Vinod Chopra has never shouted from the rooftop about his work. So, most people in the industry didn’t even know that the director was in California to shoot his ambitious project, Broken Horses. It was only when his wife and film critic Anupama Chopra made a solo entrance at the premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan a day before Diwali that people realised that hubby VVC was in USA. And that’s where he has been for a couple of months! Broken Horses, which marks the return of Chopra to direction after a five-year gap, stars Hollywood actors Anton Yelchin, Chris Marquette and Vincent D’Onofrio. Based on the US-Mexico border gang wars, the film is being shot in and around Los Angeles, including Death Valley. Last week, he was spotted filming at the historic Tower Theatre in downtown LA where the first talkie was screened. More power to you, VVC!
Kareena Kapoor’s obsession with her BlackBerry is (in)famous. The only time the new Mrs Khan is not glued to the BBM is when she is facing the camera. Sonakshi Sinha (in picture) has a similar obsession, except that it’s with games on her iPad. Until a few months ago, the Son of Sardaar actress would either play Scrabble against the computer on her iPad or challenge co-star Akshay Kumar for a game. Her latest fixation is Rat On A Skateboard. “I gave up Scrabble a while ago. Rat on a Skateboard is childish but full of fun,” giggles the girl about the games she plays.
new couple on the block
They have been a couple for a while now but A-listers have been reticent about their relationship. Considering both their previous relationships were very high-profile, it’s not surprising that they have kept their relationship away from the public eye. Even when they attend parties thrown by their friends, they arrive and leave separately. But that has changed in the last few weeks. The couple attended the premiere of a high-profile Hollywood flick together and over Diwali they were inseparable at a party organised by the actress’s latest co-star. Looks like the couple are taking baby steps towards going public.
