No matter whether he is attending some social parties or not, But actor Shahid Kapoor always manages to be in news. Whether its break up with Kareena Kapoor or link ups with Amrita Rao, Sania Mirza or Vidya Balan? However the actor is not worried about it and instead takes it easily.

Ask him about the weirdest rumour he heard about himself and he will say, “The weirdest rumour that I have heard about myself till date is the story of Amrita Rao and I going to watch a film together! I had gone with my family – dad, brother, friend Sreeram – at a suburban multiplex, and next day I read that I was watching the film with Amrita! I thought since it was a multiplex she might be in some other screen but the poor girl was in Delhi, promoting some film of hers!”

Well, Shahid that’s what every star has to pay for the stardom.

Actress Amrita Rao takes director Shyam Benegal on a high esteem. She worked with him for Welcome To Sajjanpur and since then she took Benegal as khaas. But it was surprise to know that she turned down a role in Benegal’s next film Abba Ka Kua.

It seems that Amrita don’t want to cast in similar kind of role (a rural girl) all over again. When asked to her, she replied angrily, “I dare not say no to Mr Benegal.”

“Working with him has been the biggest high of my career. It also got me a nomination at one of the awards,” added Amrita.

So the truth is that Amrita has not been offered the role at all. Instead, Minisha Lamba has been signed for the film. Minisha was so excited about the role that she immediately jumped into the offer.

Kareena did a typical star kind of thing recently. She was supposed to perform at award ceremony, but opted out of the event at the last evening of the show leaving the organizers surprised.

Kareena rejected to perform with four other actresses- Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone. The organizers get surprised by her decision, which were running promos of the show with Kareena and four other actresses.

A source said, “The organizers had planned back to back performances with Kareena, Katrina, Priyanka, Deepika, and Bipasha. Kareena who has done many more films than the other four who are performing in the finale did not want to be clubbed with them. She wants to do bigger, better and exclusive stuff.”

The source later added, “As a policy Kareena has decided not to perform at weddings and New Year bashes and she made this public too. As for this particular function, she was in two minds for some time but later decided to stick to her decision.”

However the director of show Mohammed Morani confirmed, “Kareena is out from the function. Her name will have to be pulled out from the TV promos. We did that yesterday.”

Aamir was previously staying at a star hotel, but when he came to know that his other co-stars Sharman Joshi and Madhavan were put up at the IIM-B hostel, he requested director of the film and joined them at the hostel.

One IIMite said, “The star actor meets students regularly during mornings and evenings and chats with them about their routine studies and way of life. He enquires as to how an IIM-Bian student thinks.”

One more thing we came to know that Aamir is a regular jogger. A student of IIM who is a regular jogger said, “Aamir is one of the first to go for a jog every morning. I am a regular jogger inside the campus. But, to my surprise, I found Aamir too jogging. When Aamir saw me, he said ‘hi’ and continued his jogging”

The actor is also a great chess, badminton and tennis player. One student added, “When I was playing chess with my friend, Aamir just walked in and joined me for a game of chess. It was a hard game to beat him.”

The students also acknowledge that Aamir is always the first to say hi. “Aamir always greets us with a smile though he doesn’t know us,” added another student.

Aamir always ready for a photograph and had seen regularly playing badminton and tennis. However the cast and crew of the film have taken responsibility that none of their shoot will affect the routine class sessions. The actors are on a three month long shoot.

The film is being directed by director Raj Kumar Hirani and being produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Music for the film will be given by Shantanu Moitra, while Swanand Kirkire has written the lyrics. Raju Hirani and Abhijat Joshi have written the screenplay for a film.

Anil Kapoor is one of the versatile actors who did different kinds of roles like Lakhan in Ram Lakhan or a negative role in Taal. The actor recently also acted in an international venture Slumdog Millionaire directed by Danny Boyle and he learned some new characteristics about himself.

Director Danny Boyle said that Anil is a ‘over the top’ actor. On that note Anil Kapoor says, “Unlike our popular opinion, Hollywood is much more dramatic than us.

Anil enjoyed doing the film and this international venture would sure be a topping on cake for the actor.
