Salman orders 150 pizzas during shoot (Movie Snippets)

Saturday, August 28, 2010

NEW DELHI - When Bollywood star Salman Khan went to the sets of Zee TV’s “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar”, he couldn’t help but order his favourite Jain pizza from Haji Ali. But the actor went overboard and gave a bulk order of 150 pizzas.

“Salman proved that he believes in sharing and caring as he ordered pizzas not just for the participants but also for the audience watching the shoot,” says a source from the sets.

He didn’t even let the channel officials pay the bill and said: “This is on me”.

He even threatened to leave the sets if the team of the reality show didn’t allow him to pay the bill.

The actor, awaiting the release of his film “Dabangg”, will be seen on the show Saturday.


My wife is Pakhi, says bugged Abbas Tyrewala

Director Abbas Tyrewala is annoyed! No one seems to get his wife Pakhi’s name correctly.

“Haan, so now that the promo is out, let’s clear up a small thing. She’s not Palki, Pankhi or Paki. She is Pakhi,” Tyrewala posted on his Twitter page.

Pakhi will soon be seen in her husband’s directorial project “Jhootha Hi Sahi”. She will be featured alongside John Abraham in the romantic comedy.


I’ve been cheated in Bollywood: Rakhi Sawant

Item girl Rakhi Sawant claims she has been cheated in Bollywood and now wants to strengthen her foothold on the small screen.

“I don’t want to work on the big screen anymore. I don’t have the heart to work in Bollywood now… mere saath wahaan bahut cheating ho gayi (I have been cheated a lot there). I only want to work on television,” Rakhi said.

Rakhi, who has done bit roles in films like “Main Hoon Naa” and “Dil Bole Hadippa” and item numbers such as “Dekhta hai tu kya”, has also done several reality shows like “Nach Baliye”, “Rakhi Ka Swayamvar” and “Pati, Patni Aur Woh”.

She says the end result of her role in Yash Raj Films’ “Dil Bole Hadippa” was disappointing.

“I gave my six months to ‘Dil Bole Hadippa’. But when the film released, my entire role was chopped off. So then I said namaskar (goodbye) to the big screen. I am very happy with my television work. What I have got from TV, I have never got from the big screen. But if I get good offers from Bollywood, I will still consider them,” she added.

The actress, who will soon be seen on Imagine TV’s new reality show “Rakhi Ka Insaaf”, is also open to item numbers.

“I would always do item numbers. I don’t see any wrong in doing item numbers. Go to a discotheque and people are dancing for free, so why shouldn’t I do it on screen. God has given me this talent and I love dancing,” she said.
