Saturday Spotting…

Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan and Ibrahim

Ohhh so I saw X-Men Origins Wolverine on Saturday night and spotted Saif Ali Khan at the cinema at PVR Juhu, Mumbai he was so unassuming and hanging with his kids Sara and Ibrahim so I felt bad invading his privacy and took this picture from the vantage point of my seat (even though I was super tempted to take a close up on the way out near the elevator!)

On Sunday I finally went to the super jazzed Mocha Mojo in Bandra, and dude that place is psychedelic! Kinda feels like you’ve walked into an Austin Powers movie.) They even serve beer by the pitcher so definitely worth a revisit for Sunday afternoon drinks.

Later that night I had dinner at Cafe Goa (they’re going to launch a new Mediterranean menu soon, that chef means business!) and spotted Ash Chandler and girlfriend Junelia Aguiar having drinks with close friends TC & Nathalie Ressencourt De Sousa, Kishore Bajaj, Kishore F.D. Shamita Singha and Fahad Samar (who somehow managed to do the MidDay brunch at the Oberoi and still made it across town to Bandra for drinks. What troopers!)

P.S. They do singles night with free house cocktails from 8:30pm -9:30pm every Thursdays drop by and grab a drink!

Saif splurges on a luxury holiday for Kareena

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, are currently in New York (on their slightly delayed holiday) shooting for Rensil D’ Silva’s film. They finish in a few days after which Saif plans to whisk Kareena off on a 10-day luxury (is there any other kind for Bollywood’s hottest?) holiday in Italy’s exclusive resort the 16th century Villa D’Este, on the shores of Lake Como in Cernobbio! Don’t you just hate them?!

Psst… I hear, “Kareena has not been keeping well so Saif decided it was time for her to take a break. He called their business manager Zahid and canceled all her work commitments for the next two weeks. Except for a brief Swiss holiday in Christmas, the actress has been busy with her films, shows and endorsements for a major part of the year. Kareena also some big releases coming up this year including Karan Johar’s home productions directed by Rensil D’Silva and the one with Kajol and Raj Kumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots.” So Saif has made all the travel arrangements. It will be their first time in Florence. Seeing Michelangelo’s paintings in Florence is also a part of the itinerary. The source adds, “Although it is super-expensive, that was not an issue. Saif feels it’s a well-deserved break and wants to make the trip special. Last time, he had booked an entire chalet in the Swiss Alps. Saif has made Bebo understand the importance of balancing her private and professional life. She won’t be taking any phone calls during the holiday. It’s all about fun.”

Kareena confirms, “Yes, it’s true Saif and I are shortly leaving for our Italian holiday soon but it’s private and I wouldn’t like to divulge the details of our stay.”

Didjya Know?

The villa has housed celebrities like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Greta Garbo, Gregory Peck, Clark Gable, Eddie Murphy, Liza Minelli, Sylvester Stallone and Bing Crosby.

Alfred Hitchcock shot his first movie The Pleasure Garden here.

The Villa d’Este was built in 1509. From 1550 to 1572, when the villa was nearing completion, Cardinal d’Este created a palatial setting surrounded by a spectacular terraced garden in the late-Renaissance style, which took full advantage of the dramatic slope but required innovations in bringing a sufficient water supply, which was employed in cascades, water tanks, troughs and pools, water jets and fountains, giochi d’acqua. The result is one of the series of great seicento villas with water-play structures in the hills surrounding the Roman Campagna.

Actress Amrita Arora wed longtime boyfriend Shakeel Ladak in a lavish Catholic wedding at the Olive, Mumbai earlier this week. They even had a sangeet choreographed by Bollywood choreographer Farah Khan and hosted by Alvira Agnihotri (Salman Khan’s sister).

Amrita was dressed in an off-white vintage wedding gown designed by fashion designer Ashley Rebello, the actress will have her formal Nikaah today and then the couple will then proceed on their honeymoon.

The wedding was attended by Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Ness Wadia, Urmila Matondkar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Farhan Akhtar, Gul Panag, Karishma Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Kim Sharma, Amrita Arora, Shakeel Ladak, Raveena Tandon, Malaika Arora Khan, Salman Khan, Aftab Shivdasani, Aditi Govitrikar, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Suzanne Roshan Khan, Dino Morea, Neelam Kothari, Alvira Khan, Karan Johar, Sajid Khan and Arbaaz Khan. (Shah Rukh Khan, for obvious reasons, didn’t show up  Salman Khan was there) but Gauri Khan more than made up for his absence. Amrita’s Kambakht Ishq co-star Akshay Kumar and his wife Twinkle were also missing in action.

Amrita’s bridesmaid  and best friend Kareena Kapoor was the first to come and the last to leave. A little birdie tells me Saif was seen holding Kareena very close as if to say ‘Marry me right here, right now, Bebo’. Apparently Wardha and Karishma Kapoor almost didn’t make it to the wedding as the zippers of both their gowns came undone just as they were about to leave home. Fortunately, fresh zips and damage control allowed them to make it, unfortunately they missed they actual wedding.

Saif and Kareena in a film called Jihaad?

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Psst… everyone who’s googling “Saif and Bebo” like crazy for updates here’s the latest… Rensil D’Silva’s upcoming flick starring Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi is apparently a super intense thriller potenitally titled “Jihaad” in which either one (or both) Saif and Kareena play terrorists.

Although last I checked Rensil says, “No…my film is not called Jihaad. It’s a name that the media seems to have given the film but it’s not the official title. I can’t reveal plot points or character sketches at this point of time. It’s a romantic thriller set against the backdrop of global terrorism.” (Hmm anyone wanna swap this one for Fanaa?) I do know that Salim-Sulaiman will be doing the music and it’ll hit theatres by the end of 2009.
