Model turned hottie actress Sonali Bendre is making a comeback with producer Ekta Kapoor`s ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’. One-time top gun Bendre reportedly says she is comfortable with the production team and feels like she’s returning home. Bendre is married to filmmaker Goldie Behl. Bendre describes her role as a great one. Bendre has also worked with director Milan Luthria before. ‘Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2’ is a sequel to the 2010 film ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’. Sonali was last seen in a guest appearance in 2003 film ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’. A special role has been chalked out for her comeback by Luthria. Sonali is gorgeous and a terrific actress, but more than that suits the role, says the director.

Poisonous rendezvous

Tinsel town’s real life couple Neil Nitin Mukesh and co-star girlfriend Sonal Chauhan were in for a bit of a shock recently while shooting in Fiji. The film ‘3G’ required underwater shoot and the two actors got surrounded by water snakes in the underwater sequence. The unit had assured the actors that the snakes weren’t poisonous. The actors agreed to the shot. Reportedly, the snakes coiled around their legs but that didn’t perturb them. It was only after the shot was done that Neil and Sonal came to know the truth that the underwater snakes were actually very poisonous. A petrified Neil was grateful for being alive.

Literally, all of Bollywood turned out to wish newly-weds Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani but Eshsa’s half brothers actors Sunny and Bobby Deol were missing. Dad in common Dharmendra welcomed all guests at the daughter’s big day and was really a gracious host with wife and mom Hema Malini. Reportedly, Dharmendra lost his temper when some in media quizzed him about the missing sons. A news channel reporter asked about the missing half brothers and veteran Dharmendra mimicked the reporter and walked away without answering the question. Soon enough, another reporter asked him the same question. This time Dharamendra lost his cool and said “Aap bakwaas mat kijiye”, which is translated into English as ‘Don't talk rubbish’. Family sources said Sunny was busy shooting and Bobby was in London with his family. Sunny had attended Esha’s engagement party in April. An over-protective Dharmendra at Esha’s wedding is now fuelling speculation that all is not well in the family.

Veteran actor and former BJP Minister, Shatrughan Sinha, was admitted to a hospital July 1st, 2012, following a respiratory disorder. Doctors said Shatrughan was on July 2nd in stable condition and recuperating. The 66-year-old actor-turned-politician was rushed to the Kokilaben hospital after he complained of breathlessness due to some ongoing paintwork at his residence. He had severe respiratory allergic reaction but came out of it, said Dr Ram Narain, Chief Operating Officer of Kolkilaben Hospital. Sinha's actress daughter Sonakshi tweeted about her father's health "Making mountains out of mole hills (baat ka batangadh) about someones health is NOT cool. My father is hale and hearty...Thanks for the concern, but pls... KHAMOSH!!"
