Is Parineeti Chopra dating Jackky Bhagnani

If rumours are to be believed then it seems like Parineeti Chopra has found a trustworthy friend and confidant apart from her cousin Priyanka Chopra
According to a source, the 24-year-old befriended Jackky Bhagnani, son of producer Vashu Bhagnani, a couple of months ago. Ever since, the two have been virtually joined at the hip. Despite being caught up with promoting her latest movie ‘IshaqzaadeParineeti has been trying to include Jackky in all her plans. She has allegedly been paying a visit at Jackky’s residence on a regular basis. Just recently the vivacious actress set many tongues wagging when she was spotted with Jackky in an office above Jackky’s sister, Honey’s, shop.
The source confessed to a tabloid that only some people were aware of the blossoming friendship between the actors and that they want to maintain a low profile about their supposed relationship. Nevertheless, it is obvious that Jackky couldn’t control his excitement when he took to twitter and got busy tweeting about Parineeti’s film ‘Ishaqzaade.’
This is not the first time Parineeti has been in a relationship. Before her Bollywood debut she was supposedly dating Harman Baweja’s cousin Maninder Singh.
Well, now that we have got a peek into Parineeti’s colourful love life we are wondering if Jackky was responsible for all the strong emotions Parineeti so effortlessly portrayed on screen for ‘Ishaqzaade.’

Nargis Fakhri’s new man

Tired of being linked to Bollywood heartthrobs Nargis Fakhri recently gave the media a piece of her mind. In an interview with a tabloid, the model turned actress said that the fabricated stories about her love life with men had annoyed her so much so that she wanted to scream from rooftops and announce to the world that she wasn’t interested in men at all!

Arjun Kapoor disappoints daddy Boney Kapoor

While Arjun Kapoor is basking in the glory of the success of his debut film ‘Ishaqzaade’ we know one man who is regretting not launching him, namely his father, Boney Kapoor.
According to the grapevine, after a lot of effort Boney Kapoor has found a suitable script for his son but Arjun will not be able to commit to the project because he has signed a three-film deal with Yash Raj films.
An industry insider stated that Boney took his time to come up with the right script for Arjun because he wanted his son to feature in a well-written movie with strong characters. It was just a few days ago that the concept of a contemporary romance saga struck Boney and he immediately broached the subject with his son. Unfortunately Boney had to leave with a heavy heart because Arjun had already signed a contract for three Bollywood movies with Yash Raj Films and couldn’t say yes to his father.
The insider added that YRF was stunned when their film ‘Ishaqzaade’ starring two relatively new faces, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra, registered Dhs3.75 million at the BO on its opening day. YRF naturally seems keen to cash in on the opportunity and work on their forthcoming films with Arjun Kapoor.
The 26-year-old actor is apparently being roped in to star in another Bollywood film with Parineeti Chopra which will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar (‘Lafangey Parindey’). There is to be another project which will be helmed by Shimit Amin (‘Chak De! India’). By the end of the month, the projects will possibly be finalised.
Well, it looks like Boney Kapoor will have to wait for a long time to fulfill his dream of working with his son.

Did Karan johar call Katrina Kaif boring?

It seems like Karan Johar may have developed a penchant for flirting with controversy as the usually diplomatic filmmaker was supposedly overheard criticising Katrina Kaif for her boring poses recently. However, later in a complete volte-face, he stunned everyone when he took to twitter and announced that he had not said anything about Kat.
His tweet read “Absolutely crazy media report suggesting I have said something about Katrina!!! I HAVE NOT!!! It’s totally baseless and a lie!!! Katrina is not only a dear friend but also a supremely talented and hard working Bollywood megastar!!! And all this reportage is ridiculous!!!”
For the unaware, the story goes like this. At a recent party, K Jo was heard telling his posse that Katrina’s look remained the same regardless of the theme of any commercial shoot and that she had the most monotonous and predictable poses.
Well, we wonder if Kat is going to react to this controversy strongly and if this bad blood is going to get in the way of her Bollywood upcoming movieDostana 2’ which is being produced by K Jo
