Who is sitting in the doghouse now?

(I had to revive this blog-entrance from trash after i got called out on it. ok so there)

When SRK says  he cannot tell his kids of the tender age 14 and 11 years old  “the whole story”  … and ” it’s difficult to explain to them”… that’s sending Shirish Kunder pretty much to the doghouse, I would say.   Woof woof.   Now we are ALL aware that  Shirish behaved inappropriately enough so we can’t explain to our kids either, which then seems to give credence to Miss Malini‘s ‘eye witness report‘ that had made the rounds. gossip-the-shah-rukh-khan-and-shirish-kunder-story-blow-by-blow  

(I wonder how Miss Malini keeps up with everything that’s going on..)

The fact that SRK keeps his silence but hints that he wouldn’t be able to explain it to his kids is all for sudden the big white elephant in the room.  That’s what I call a verdict.

Oh,  I love Bollywood gossip.  Such drama.  Last year we had Romeo Shahid slinking out of Priyanka’s crib at five in the morning (don’t hold me to the dates and timeline). The year before we had Aamir  calling his dog Shahrukh, Remember that?   it escalated almost to a national crisis.. We had Salman crashing a party after things didn’t work out with his sweetheart Katrina.  And what about poor Ranbir Kapoor getting dissed by Sonam and Deepika? wasn’t that a juicy little scandal?

I don’t know how it feels to be the target of gossip, in my town we cultivate small potato gossip.  these stars, on the other hand, see their stories being printed in tabloids, with the whole nation watching and gasping. Every desi beauty parlor sizzles with hypotheses..  the sky is the limit of our  imagination!  The stars’ compounds are probably under siege as we speak… Paparazzis, insider spies, gossip is s a whole parallel  universe  in Bollywood, where movies are only one side of the coin and the stars lives the other.

From history we know that whoever sits in the doghouse of the public domain will sit there only for a limited amount of time.  Especially in India, redemption is always just around the corner and part of the life cycle,  masala the spice.

Accha accha, we got a new scandal. thik hai!!! It will keep us guessing at least two more weeks, what was that slap all about…  And while that’s being sorted out, we’ll make the doghouse nice and cozy for whoever needs to chill there for a while… :-)

The good news is, it’s already kinda old news.


Shah Rukh refuses to give his version of brawl with Kunder

Refusing to give his side of what happened during Sunday night’s fracas, Shah Rukh Khan today said he did not want to give “two versions” of the incident.

The 46-year-old actor made the comments on the margins of a function a day after the patch up with Shirish Kunder, husband of director Farah Khan. Kunder had accused SRK of slapping him at the party hosted by Sanjay Dutt.

“My children think of her as Farah aunty and it has been difficult for them to understand this whole issue. I do not want to give two versions of the incident. This is an entirely personal issue. “My children will get confused if they hear one thing from me inside the house and another thing in public. That is why I don’t comment on my personal life,” the actor said.

It is for the first time that SRK, who kept mum as the incident snowballed into a major controversy two days back, has spoken about it in public.

“It is very embarrassing for me to talk about this incident in front of my children. My son is 14 and girl is 11 and half years. It is difficult to explain it in the family,” he said.

Farah and Shah Rukh, whose friendship had soured few years ago, also sorted out their issues at the patch up meet initiated by director Sajid Khan.

“Farah is a very old friend. A lot about us has been written in the past two years. It has been very difficult for me to sit with that. It is nice to have friends back home. I am happy about it,” SRK said.

“Outsiders think that whatever people in Bollywood do is fun, even if it is personal,” he added.



and soon I’ll be sitting in the doghouse here…. :-)
