Behind their dostana

Amrita Arora and Kareena Kapoor’s friendship has consumed almost as many reams of paper as the latter’s romance with Saif Ali Khan. The two hang out together, and have even worked together of late (Golmaal Returns and the forthcoming Kambakth Ishq).

Amrita Arora has a simple explanation for their friendship. “We don’t bring in the ‘actor’ bit between our friendship. We are two intelligent and mature individuals who go beyond that. We see ourselves as people who love each other.”

Spotting Mahi’s talent

Mahi Gill who plays the much-coveted role of Paro in Dev D (co-starring Abhay Deol and Kalki) has been signed up for two more films with UTV Spotboy. A source told us that the production house is so impressed with the Dev D actress that they have also cast her in the Inderjit Nattoji-directed Aage Se Right opposite Shreyas Talpade, and the Tigmanshu Dhulia-directed Pan Singh Tomar opposite Irrfan Khan.

When we called up the Punjabi girl, all she said was: “Yes, I have signed two more films with UTV Spotboy, and I am very glad to be part of that group.”

Ready for fashion



Designer Alkesh Ramwani is going places these days! Leading ladies Priyanka Chopra, Mugdha Ghodse and Chitrangada Singh have all got hooked on to his fancy designer outfits. He dressed Mugdha Ghodse in a blue-grey gown for the feature shoot of a leading film magazine. In a tête-À-tête with us, he revealed: “Priyanka was planning to sport my gown for the Dostana premiere, but it seems she felt there was too much drama on the dress!” What next? A film, of course, says an optimistic Alkesh, who is all set to open his fashion studio in Bandra.
