Love once more?
Before festivities for the New Year begins, it seems Janhvi Kapoor has decided to rekindle her old flame. Sources claim that the Mili actor has got back with ex-boyfriend Shikhar Pahariya—grandson of former Maharashtra chief minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde. The two had broken up a few years ago, but got talking again earlier last year. After a couple of months of mulling over, the two have decided to get back together. Interestingly, Shikhar also attended Anil Kapoor’s birthday bash last month, and was later spotted leaving with his ladylove. Moreover, at the celebrations of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s engagement last week, Janhvi and Shikhar were seen hanging out together for most part of the evening.
South side story
Talk in Tollywood is that Aamir Khan is likely to join director Prashanth Neel’s next film with Junior NTR. The filmmaker is currently preoccupied with the post-production of his upcoming action thriller, Salaar, starring Prabhas, Shruti Haasan and Prithviraj Sukumaran. After its release, he is slated to take the Jr NTR-starrer on floors later this year. Though Aamir stated a couple of months ago that he is taking a year-and-a-half’s break from acting to spend quality time with family, it looks like he will return to face the cameras earlier than expected. While not much is known about film’s subject, we hear Prashanth had first conceptualised it about 20 years ago and is excited to bring it to the big screen.
Chilling times for Manav
Manav Gohil literally had the chills while shooting for his television show, Main Hoon Aparajita, starring Shweta Tiwari in the titular role. He recently filmed the sequence that required him to be stuck in a frozen truck. Manav admits that he was a little worried when he was briefed about the scene. “I had to shoot the scene in a compact deep freezer truck. On top of it, the script required dry ice smoke, which is so uncomfortable as it was a confined space. It was difficult,” says the actor, adding that he finished the scene in five hours. “It was indeed an experience to remember. Doing something new only adds value to our craft.”
On a signing spree
Nana Patekar, last seen in Rajinikanth’s Kaala (2018), has signed a film. The actor is set to play the lead in Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War and just begun shooting for the it. Sources say Nana is having a great time on location, shooting and bonding with his co-actors and the crew. The actor, who has just been signed for a series with Prakash Jha, will be seen in Anant Mahadevan’s The Confession next.
Ever since his marriage to investment banker Priya Runchal, John Abraham has preferred to keep his personal life private. While on rare occasions, he has spoken about her playing a key role in the finances of his production house and other businesses, he doesn’t post anything related to wifey on social media. On the plus side, Priya marks special days with their pictures. She recently shared a family picture with John’s parents Abraham John and Firoza Irani, brother Alan. Interestingly, the actor’s moustache look in the picture seems like his new look for his next project.
SS Rajamouli is in the midst of securing nominations for his blockbuster magnum opus, RRR, at the upcoming Academy Awards.

The film is said to be a jungle adventure thriller and in the same space as the Indiana Jones franchise. The yet-untitled film is slated to go on floors later this year. Interestingly, the father-son duo are rumoured to be planning their Mahesh-starrer as a franchise, which was later confirmed by Prasad when he said in an interview that the film could have sequels in future. “The central characters will remain the same, but the storylines will keep changing.”
A February wedding?
Even though Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani were spotted at the airport separately, they reportedly flew out together to welcome the New Year.

Rumours are rife that the pre-wedding functions— mehendi, haldi, sangeet—are scheduled for February 4 and 5. Apparently, Sid and Kiara will take the pheras on February 6, at a palace hotel in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
