Sambhavna Seth shrugs off Sara Khan with style and dignity!

A casual comment from dancing queen Sambhavna Seth has got starlet Sara Khan’s feathers all ruffled! What’s more! The ex-Bigg Boss contestants even seem to ignite more sparks compared to the current lot in Bigg Boss 6.

Reacting to an interview quote of Sambhavna that the Ali Merchant-Sara Khan marriage in Bigg Boss was a “gimmick’, Sara exploded, “Who the hell is Sambhavna to talk about my personal life? Before talking about others she should look at herself. What is she… only a C-grade film item dancer.”

Sara further lashed out, “I wonder if she made this statement to milk some free publicity for she could never achieve what I have done at such a young age.”

Though we wouldn’t dare comment on Sara’s achievements, Sambhavna’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar reciprocated, “I don’t think my client needs to get into this, so let me tackle it myself.”

He said, “First of all, I don’t think Sam knows Ms Khan in personal life. She might have just reacted to a question asked in an interview. Secondly, though a marriage ‘on screen’ is hardly a personal affair, of course, Sara’s marriage couldn’t have been a gimmick. After all, we all know, Bigg Boss doesn’t do gimmicks – it’s a ‘reality’ show, right?”

So that leaves us with Sara’s allegation about Sambhavna seeking “free publicity”. Looking amused as we bring that up, Dale remarks, “If Sam wants to generate publicity; she has the best publicist in me! Why would she need anyone else?”

Now that’s some fitting and dignified response from Sambhavna’s publicist which Sara really needs take tips from! In fact, we won’t be surprised if Sara seeks this smooth-talker for her publicity next time!

Sachiin Joshi tries to break Dahi Handi; almost breaks head instead!

‘Oops!’ That might be how Aazaan star Sachiin Joshi might have reacted this week, when he tried to do a stunt for his forthcoming movie Mumbai Mirror where he plays a tough but quirky cop.

Image

During a song picturisation, against the wishes of his unit, Sachiin refused to use a body double for a shot where his character had to break a Dahi Handi with his head in a fit of frenzy.

Image

It was an energetic Govinda song with vigorous dancing, amidst 200 dancers, 250 Dahi Handi professionals and 500-strong crowd.

The mukhda went, “Poster phatega, toh hero hi niklega, mathey se phodega handi… Govinda aala re aala re, Govinda.” But our hero got so carried away in the passion of the shoot that while dancing with abandon he banged his head on the Handi real hard. But alas! It did not break. Instead Sachiin’s forehead started bleeding. Oh oh!

Confirming the incident, the actor’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar admitted, “Yes, Sachiin did get injured a bit. But even after the accident, he was sporting enough to carry on with the shoot, of course after a bit of first aid and medication.”

We checked on this with our khabri and realized Sachiin really hadn’t learnt his lesson! Our source informed us, he did continue to finally ‘break’ the Dahi Handi with his head in one of the retakes, even as the renowned choreographer Chinni Prakash looked at him in awe, admiring the young gun’s zest and determination.

What can we say about Sachiin’s dabangg attitude but ‘Kamaal karte ho Sachiinji’!

Nithyananda not “sacked”, but ‘stepped down’ from Madurai Adheenam!

Contrary to media reports, spiritual leader Paramahamsa Nithyananda, popularly known as Swami Nithyananda has not been “sacked” as the 293rd pontiff of the Madurai Adheenam; the oldest Saivite mutt established more than 1,500 years ago in South India.

Instead, he voluntarily offered to step down, after which the current pontiff Arunagirinatha Desikar announced Nithyananda’s exit.

Reacting to incorrect reports that the controversial self-styled godman was “sacked” as the next pontiff of Madurai Adheenam, his spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar clarified, “Nithyananda had himself offered to resign from the post. His exit seems right as he understood that technical issues surrounding his anointment could be taking its toll on the elderly senior pontiff’s frail health, peace of mind, or his position as the current head of the mutt.”

In view of the recent submission of the Tamil Nadu government that under the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Act, two individuals cannot jointly hold the position of pontiff of Madurai Adheenam, the senior pontiff agreed to revoke the appointment of Swami Nithyananda.

Refuting rumours that the Swami’s supporters could cause trouble to inmates of the mutt, the spokesperson remarked, “Nithyananda advocates peace and happiness. He would never want any untoward incident. Through his ashram Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam in Bangalore, he will carry on and continue with his work and mission to serve humanity”.

Nithyananda is also rumoured to be on the current season of Bigg Boss to spread his message. However, Bhagwagar refused to confirm or deny that.
