Can I have my Merc logo back, Big B asks media!

A dinner with Hollywood's maverick filmmaker Steven Spielberg cost Amitabh Bachchan the logo of his Mercedes -- and he wants it back!

"Thank you media for mobbing my car after dinner for Steven Spielberg. Can I have my Mercedes logo back please, you broke it... twice over," Big B posted on Twitter.

The 70-year-old dined with Spielberg at a party organised by Indian business tycoon Anil Ambani and his wife Tina in the filmmaker's honour Tuesday night.

Spielberg, maker of films like "Extra Terrestrial" and "Jurrasic Park", was here to celebrate the success of his film "Lincoln", a co-production between his banner DreamWorks and Anil Ambani's Reliance Entertainment.

Big B had even anchored Spielberg's masterclass with as many as 61 Indian filmmakers here Monday.

Arjun in phone mess

Actor Arjun Rampal has lost a lot of his contacts on his mobile phone after the device went dysfunctional after a dip in water.

Now he is contemplating investing in an iPhone.
"My Blackberry drowns in water, lose most contacts and all BB messenger (contacts). Is this a blessing in disguise? Time to maybe just be on iPhone," Arjun posted on Twitter.
The actor recently wrapped up his first schedule for Prakash Jha's "Satyaragha" in Bhopal.

Shekhar only has 'Paani' on his plate

Grapevine is abuzz that filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has signed up as creative producer of a project tentatively titled "Indian Sherlock". But he says that he is not thinking beyond his ambitious project "Paani" as of now.

"'Paani' is my next film. It is so hugely complex and important that I don't have energy for anything else, no matter what the media speculates," Kapur tweeted.

Reports indicated that after "Mr. India", Kapur was teaming up with Anil Kapoor. However, Kapur's reactions to the same prove otherwise.

In the meantime, speculations are also rife about the actors he is going to cast in "Paani", which is being produced by Yash Raj Films. The movie requires a strong Indian and western star cast, headed by a young leading actor from India and a young leading actress from the west.

"Never made a film where media is so obsessed with its cast. Even Heath Ledger ('The Four Feathers') and Cate Blanchett ('Elizabeth') were (fairly) newcomers when I cast them," he added.
