STARS & SWIPES

Aal is well! Stories of Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapoor’s marriage being on the rocks have been doing the rounds for some time now. While most sources close to the couple insist there is not a shred of evidence of trouble in paradise, Vidya and Siddharth seem to have decided that a few appearances together should be enough to quell all rumours. Last week, the couple made two appearances together, starting with Karan Johar’s 42nd birthday party. “Vidya and Siddharth were almost inseparable most of the night. They were holding hands and whispering to each other,” says a fellow guest. The next night, Vidya and Siddharth stepped out to watch Hansal Mehta’s Citylights in Mumbai. The love fest continued at the movie screening too with Siddharth playing the attentive, loving husband through the evening. Here’s hoping the rumours die a quick death now.

Hair today, gone...

Ayushmann Khurrana is fast joining the ranks of Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor when it comes to being obsessed about his hair. Word coming from the sets of Dum Laga Ke Haisha, a YRF film that was being shot around Rishikesh is that Ayushmann won’t let his hairdresser out of his sight. The actor spent as much time in front of the camera as he did on the monitor checking if every strand was in place. Director Sharat Katariya, who is making his first film for the heavyweight studio, had no choice but to give in to Ayushmann’s demands of extra takes every time he thought a strand was out of place.

Both Saif and Shahid are similarly fixated about their hair. In the past, Saif has walked out of outdoor photo shoots because “the sea breeze was blowing his hair the wrong way”. As for Shahid, a few years ago, director Vishal Bhardwaj had famously said that if Shahid didn’t focus so much on his face and hair, he could become a superstar. Is there a lesson here for newbie Ayushmann?

A for aamir

If you become Aamir Khan, anything you’ve ever touched would find takers. Apparently there is one film of his that has remained unreleased in theatres. That has now been snapped up for telecast by &pictures, the Hindi movie channel from the Zee network. The film will be beamed this Sunday at 8pm. And Mr Perfectionist, who is known for suave marketing of his films, wants to go big with the tele release. Lucky winners of a contest being run on the channel will be flown over from across the country to watch the film with him. He will be also be taking live call-ins and answering questions of fans during breaks in the broadcast. The channel is keeping the name of the film under wraps. Keep guessing, till Sunday!

Dangerous liaisons

This prominent actor’s wife is living it up in his absence. Being away from her husband has given the former item girl a chance to rekindle her romance with a friend’s much-married brother. The affair has been going on for some time and now even her in-laws and husband know about it. The last time her husband was in town, he caught his wife and her boyfriend in a compromising position. The actor is said to have beaten the living daylights out of both the boyfriend and his wife.

The mother of two stayed by her husband’s side while he was in town, but now that he is gone, she is back with her old beau. The couple are making no attempts at being discreet and have been spotted at various parties around town together. This is the A-list actor’s third marriage and he has been determined to make it work, but friends don’t believe the relationship will survive the test of time.
