While Preity Zinta’s legal tussle with Ness Wadia isn’t showing signs of abating, Bollywood seems divided and people want to know who is standing by Preity at this time. She has accused her ex-boyfriend of indecent assault, which he has denied. Vidya Balan has stood in support of Preity and now Salman Khan has joined in. Just last week, during the launch of Kick trailer, when Salman was asked to comment on Preity Zinta’s ongoing battle, the actor began an impromptu dance and ignored what he was asked. But now, looks like the right time has come for him to reach out to his friend. Salman Khan called up her and asked her to reach out for him if she needed any kind of help.
Says a close friend of Salman Khan:“There are two Salmans. There is the loving caring Salman in private. That Salman, I believe, rang up Preity and spoke to her offering all help and support. Then there is the public Salman which thrives on ridiculing people and their problems. This is his way of entertaining his fans.”
ICONIC ‘SHOE THROWING JOURNALIST’ OFFERS ASSISTANCE
The iconic Iraqi 'shoe-thrower' journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi, who hit global headlines when he threw a shoe of protest at George Bush, has gotten in touch with Mahesh Bhatt and actor Imran Zahid offering to negotiate on behalf of the Indian government for the release of the 40 abducted Indians who've been taken hostage by Iraqi militants.Muntadhar has a special affinity to India, especially since Mahesh Bhatt wrote the play The Last Salute in which Imran Zahid played Muntadhar's role. Muntadhar has since then maintained close ties with Bhatt and Imran.
Muntadhar has clearly stated to Imran Zahid, "I am ready to go to go to the conflict zones and negotiate with the kidnappers. I'm ready to go to Iraq to mediate for the release of hostages and wait for the power of attorney from the Indian government. And I will make every effort to free hostages I hope to see them return to their families safely."
Now Imran and Mahesh Bhatt are in the process of informing the Indian government of Muntadhar's offer. Says Mahesh Bhatt, "Muntadhar is an icon in that part of the world. It is the duty of every Indian to rise to the occasion and do his bit to tide over this bizarre crisis."
Bhatt saab intends to inform the Indian government of Muntadhar's generous offer. "All one can do is to put Muntadhar in touch with those who are handling the crisis and leave them to decide how they can effectively use his services to resolve the tragic deadlock," states the film industry's most vocal and effectual representative.
There was a time when Amitabh Bachchan was busy romancing actresses half his age and couldn’t get away with it. Soon his movies started flopping and then he eventually came back with Yash Chopra’s Mohabbatein as a strict disciplinarian and head-teacher. Shah Rukh Khan still manages to get away with romancing the likes of Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor but for how long?It's been reported that Anil Kapoor has gone "missing" while shooting for Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do. The reason why Anil has done a Mr India is because he'll be sporting an entirely grey-haired look for the first time in his career. Says a source close to the project, "Anil has so far been playing guys far younger than his real age. When he was 30, he was playing 20-year old characters. Now when he is 57 he plays 40-45-year old characters because that's how young he looks. For her film, Zoya insisted he should look like Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh's father. She wanted him to sport a completely grey-haired look."
For a very long time Anil Kapoor was in two minds about doing the role.Says the source, "There he was playing the action hero in Race 2, Shootout At Wadala and in his TV serial24. Anil wasn't sure how playing his actual age would affect his image. He finally took the plunge because his children Sonam and Harshvardhan told him he mustn't miss the opportunity."
But Anil insists this is the only father's role he will play until something as exciting as Dil Dhadakne Do comes his way.

I was thinking about adopting a kitten… Hmmm
Been feeling a bit down lately so I decided to paint my living room yellow. And who would (have) thought it be the color I needed! The subconscious/intuition knows. Color Therapy – Yellow Healing properties: Yellow helps strengthen the nerves and the mind.
Sonam Kapoor tweeted a pic and said “Still searching! and hash tagged it ‘Eternal Romantic and Single life’. Nargis retweeted that..
The pic said: According to Greek Mythology, we are all born with four arms, four legs and a head and two faces.Fearing their power, Zeus split them in two seperate beings, condemning them tos pend their lives in search of their other halves.

She posted a song titled Yotuh that goes like this:
"Shadows settle on the place, that you left.Our minds are troubled by the emptiness. Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time. From the perfect start to the finish line. And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one, ’Cause most of us are bitter over someone. Setting fire to our insides for fun, To distract our hearts from ever missing them. But I’m forever missing him.."
