Kareena is raring to come back

Even though its Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt etc., who are stealing the limelight in Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor is slowly lining up a great set of movies. Currently she is waiting to break box office records with Bajrangi Bhaijaan opposite Salman Khan. She is also all set to explore the dark side of a schizophrenic in RajKumar Gupta’s next project. After that she will be seen in Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab, which revolves around drug culture in Punjab; apart from that she has R Balki’s next with Arjun Kapoor, which deals with the issues of contemporary marriage.

Parineeti with Salman?

There was great curiosity as to whether Deepika Padukone or Kangana Ranaut would bag the the leading lady role opposite Salman Khan in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan. Now an entertainment daily from Mumbai has reported that Parineeti Chopra has grabbed the coveted spot. Kangana recently gave a statement saying that she did not have enough dates in her schedule to allot for the shooting of the Salman starrer, which explains why she is not part of the film about the life of a boxer. Parineeti has been lying low for a long time after her recent spade of flops. Sultan is being produced by Yash Raj movies, and she has been a Yash Raj girl much before she entered the acting world, hence we will not be surprised if she is finalised in this much talked about project. We will still wait for the official announcement because we know that major changes usually happen in big projects.

RanveerDeepika to get engaged?

Rumors are rife that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are all set to make their relationship official early next year. Apparently the Ram Leela couple who displayed their love in full force at the recently held IIFA awards in Malaysia will exchange rings next Febuary. They have taken consent from their respective families, we hear. In recent times both Deepika and Ranveer have been spotted with each other’s family members and it is believed that the couple is extremely serious and sure about each other. Well, if the news is true, our best wishes to them.

Alia hurts Homi and Sushant

It was announced with much fanfare that Alia Bhatt would act with Sushant Singh Rajput in Homi Adjania’s next Raabta. But now the Highway star has quit the project to accommodate the big budgeted Shuddhi with Varun Dhawan. Raabta was to go into production in May. Saif Ali Khan’s business partner Dinesh Vijan was to co-direct this film with Homi. Dinesh spoke to us about his passion project in detail when he came to Dubai a few months back to promote his production Badlapur. They had written the script keeping Alia in mind, but the young actress has bigger plans in her mind. We hear that Homi, Dinesh and Sushant are very upset with Alia’s sudden exit. The pretty actress has her plate full with Vikas Bahl’s Shandaar, Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab, Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons and Karan Malhotra’s Shuddhi. There are rumours that this project will be shelved but we hope that they look for more options instead.
