This past week, Shilpa Shetty could not judge the dance reality show on TV as son Viaan had taken ill and was hospitalised. Guess who stepped in for her? Choreographer Saroj Khan! Saroj, who was the first judge on the show, was called in at the eleventh hour as a replacement for the mom-in-distress, and the veteran had no hassles. There were some initial rumours about Shilpa having left the show due to a fall-out with the producers but those were laid to rest when the actress tweeted about her son’s improving health and thanking the producers.

Poll disasters

He’s won awards galore for his acting and then some for his fashion sense and also for being the most eligible bachelor around! But here’s one that he may have not been prepared for. Ranbir Kapoor has won the ‘perfect husband material’ award in a special poll conducted by a matrimonial website. If that makes him feel good (?), then there’s more. People voted for his-ex Deepika Padukone to be most suited as his partner. Katrina Kaif was behind her by almost two-thirds of the votes. One glitch here, though… Ranbir is reportedly seeing Katrina currently.

Drink and solve

Official permissions are often required to shoot at guarded locations and Bollywood is not new to it. But the makers of Neil Nitin Mukesh’s upcoming film 3G faced a unique problem. They wanted to shoot the film on the picturesque Fiji Islands and the local village elders of some smaller islands initially refused them permission! They were reportedly concerned about any possible disturbance and damage to their habitat. The unit had a seven-hour long chat with them and things were finally sorted out when the two parties shared the local drink ‘kava’. As they say, a lot can happen over a drink. The film has been shot on the Denarau Island, capital Suva and Sigatoka town, besides the smaller islands.
