A surprise treat

There was a lot of excitement at the Sinha household as Poonam Sinha turned a year older. What added to the excitement is the surprise by Luv for his mom.

Since Shatrughan Sinha was away in Delhi due to his work commitments, Poonam planned to keep the birthday a quiet affair.

However, Luv, without his mother’s knowledge, planned to fly down his dad for a
special dinner that he had organised for the five of them.

The dinner had all the favourite delicacies of his mum, but of course, the icing on the cake was the surprise arrival of Shatrughan.

Luv says, “I know how important it is for my mother that all of us are together on birthdays and other special occasions. She was not aware of what we had planned and it took some effort to make sure that it was a complete surprise for her.”

A film on the slain prisoner

Film-maker Subhash Ghai is planning to make a film on slain Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, who spent 22 years in a Pakistan jail on espionage charges. Although the lead has not been finalised yet, the film may have Sonakshi Sinha in the role of Sarabjit’s sister, Dalbir Kaur. Fellow inmates in the jail killed the death row convict, a native of Punjab. “It’s a sensitive story and we feel it needs to be told. We have spoken to his family and they are okay with it. They have given their approval for the project,” Subhash says.

On Sonakshi featuring in the film, Ghai neither confirms nor denies the news. “We are yet to cast the actors. We are in the process of casting and shall let you all know soon,” he says. The film is likely to go on floors early next year. Meanwhile, Subhash has also launched his first Punjabi film titled Double Di Trouble starring Dharmendra, Poonam Dhillon and others. The film will be directed by Smeep Kang and produced by Ghai’s production house Mukta Arts.

In a different look

Hrithik Roshan will sport a never-seen-before look in Shuddhi,” says film director Karan
Malhotra.

About the movie, for which he is bringing Hrithik and Kareena Kapoor Khan together on the screen nearly after 10 years, Karan says, “It’s too early to reveal anything right now. But I can assure that Hrithik will be seen in a never-before-seen look in the film. His look will be something new and different, and I am not allowed to speak much about it at this point of time.”

Rumours are rife that once size zero actress Kareena will aim for a six-pack for her role in Shuddhi. Rubbishing the same, Karan wonders, “I don’t know from where these rumours come from. Why does she need to get six-pack abs? It’s absolutely false. All I can say is that Kareena will look as beautiful as ever in this film. We will start shooting the film in December.” The superhit on-screen jodi was last seen in Sooraj Barjatya’s Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon.
