Have you heard?
Katrina Kaif with husband Vicky Kaushal
Cooling in the pool
While they were dating, Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal kept everything hush, hush. Since their wedding in December, they’ve been painting the town, or more like social media, red with their PDA. Kat posted a picture from her swimming session with hubby and sent the Internet into a tizzy. She captioned the post, “Me and mine” with heart emojis. While fans loved a peak into their lovey-dovey life, fraternity friends, Priyanka Chopra reacted with a love emoji and Hrithik Roshan responded, “So nice.” We can’t agree more.
For all those who feared that Kartik Aaryan will be left in the dust after his tiff with Karan Johar will be relieved to know that he has a packed year ahead. After Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik will resume filming Shehzaada. Post which, he will shoot for Hansal Mehta’s Captain India in September.
Golden jubilee celebrations
Karan Johar, who turns 50 on May 25, is planning a big bash to ring in his birthday. The theme of the party, we hear, is black and bling; and will have directors and actors associated with his production house in attendance. We hear the three Khans—Shah Rukh, Salman, and Aamir—apart from Twinkle Khanna, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, among others are on the guest list.
Pooja in Vijay’s next?
What was originally supposed to be Janhvi Kapoor’s Telugu debut— JGM, starring Vijay Deverakonda, is now seeing a shuffle in the cast. Latest buzz suggests that the Puri Jagannadh-directed film will now feature Pooja Hegde opposite the Liger actor. There is no word on why Janhvi couldn’t take up JGM; the actor is currently working on Nitesh Tiwari’s Bawaal, also featuring Varun Dhawan. This will be Vijay and the Radhe Shyam actor’s first collaboration.
Adieu, Mohan Juneja
Kannada actor Mohan Juneja, recently seen in KGF: Chapter 2, passed away on Saturday. He was 54. Sources inform that Mohan had been unwell for long and was undergoing treatment. The actor has over 100 films to his credit in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. The producers of KGF tweeted, “Our heartfelt condolences to actor Mohan Juneja’s family, friends and well-wishers. He was one of the best-known faces in Kannada films and our KGF family.”
Dostana duo reuniting soon?
It looks like the Dostana duo—Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham—will team up again after 14 years. After Arjun Kapoor’s exit from Jagan Shakti’s remake of the 2020 Malayalam film, Ayyappanum Koshiyum, we hear the makers are now in advanced talks with Jr Bachchan. Incidentally, Abhishek had opted out of the film last year. We wonder what convinced the actor to reconsider the film. Once the Dasvi actor signs the contract, John, who is also producing the film, will set the new schedule and logistics in motion
