Short Takes

• After the debacle of Hum Tum Aur Ghost, Arshad Warsi has decided to concentrate on his acting career. Though he was in conversation with several corporate houses for co-ventures, he’s put all that on the back-burner till infinity. Der aaye durust aaye…

• Remember Shashilaal Nair??? He’s back from a long hiatus after making the controversial Ek Chhoti Si Love Story. Soon, he’s going to start a big venture. And his favourite actor Jackie Shroff will be part of it for sure.

• Vikram Phadnis, who’s been toying with the idea of turning director for ages, has finally made up his mind. He’s cut down on fashion assignments and is working on a script and will soon announce a project. Earlier, Phadnis wanted to remake Stepmom but Karan Johar bought the rights, officially.

• Vipul Shah dreamt of remaking south blockbuster Khakha Khakha and managed to rope in the original director Gautam Menon. But Menon got busy and the leading man of the film, John Abraham, turned saviour. Abraham, who was committed to doing a film with the talented Nishikant Kamat, convinced him to fulfill Shah’s dream. Everything was going smoothly till we heard that the budget was too high and no one was keen to join forces with Shah. Hope it happens eventually!

• Anees Bazmee’s Thank You made headlines when the director decided to cast Sonam Kapoor instead of Katrina Kaif. Now we hear that Sonam stars opposite Bobby Deol in the film and Rimmi Sen opposite Irrfan. Akshay has no heroine but towards the climax, one big name will make a special appearance, portrayed as Kumar’s girl. No prizes for guessing, it’s Katrina!
