Deepika to shoot a special number?
We hear that Deepika Padukone is considering shooting for a special dance number for her close friend Dinesh Vijan's directorial debut Raabta starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon. Apparently, she will be back in Mumbai soon, since she has already wrapped up her Hollywood project with Vin Diesel. She will be doing this dance number as a goodwill gesture for her friend Dinesh.

Why would you do that, Abhishek
The Bachchans and the Rais were in full attendance for the premiere of Sarbjit in Mumbai. But it looks like Abhishek Bachchan was in a grumpy mood that evening. He was asked to pose with his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan by the photographers, but he kept himself busy by talking to other family members. He did join his wife eventually, but walked away after a few seconds, leaving Aishwarya alone to pose for the photographers. Aishwarya looked stunned by his rude behaviour. So were we. His PR machinery was quick to jump in saying this was a thoughtful gesture from his side, so his wife could be the centre of attention that night. Right, like we believe that.


Why did Abhishek leave Hera Pheri 3?
We were shocked to hear that Abhishek Bachchan is not part of Hera Pheri 3 anymore. We remember going to the sets of this film in Dubai last year, John Abraham and Abhishek seemed excited about this comedy flick. When he was prodded about why he left the film, Abhishek said, "It just didn't work out." We hear that makers were not ready with the bound script and were shooting the film in bits and pieces. Whereas John was more than willing to adjust his dates according to the needs of the producers, Abhishek was not happy with the slow development of the film and decided to walk away.

SRK works with the super women team
Recently, a picture from the sets of Gauri Shinde's next directorial starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt went viral on social media. We were so pleasantly surprised to see an all-women crew from Gauri's film. There was a time when the only women present on a Bollywood movie set would be the heroine, her mother and the hairdresser. But now women are exploring direction, production, camera, scripting, costume and almost every department of filmmaking. Cheers to girl power!


Season of getting back
There are reports that estranged couple Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan are willing to give their marriage a second chance. We also hear that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are back together. Anushka was spotted at a restaurant with Virat's team members for a celebratory dinner of Royal Challengers Banglore. Also, Ranvir Shorey and Konkona Sen Sharma might give their relationship a second chance for the sake of their child. We hope to hear many such happy news from B-town.

Guess who
 
Bollywood has always been accused of nepotism. This star-son recently went to a comedy show to promote his upcoming multi-starrer film. One of the other leading actors (self-made actor) is much more successful than him but the star son demanded a special entrance for himself. Apparently his co-stars gave in to his demand without a word and ended up having more fun on stage. Guess who we are talking about?
