The S Factor!

Sachiin J Joshi to romance Sunny Leone in Kaizad Gustad’s next!

They are the unconventional pair. He is Sachiin J Joshi, the young dynamic actor-entrepreneur-visionary rolled into one and she is every teenybopper’s heartthrob. Now, Sachiin J Joshi and Sunny Leone are coming together in a casting coup of sorts in director Kaizad Gustad’s next. A little bird tells us that Sunny was the choice as there is a certain vulnerability about Sunny that made the maker zero in on her. Also the fact that she is every young man’s heartthrob while she has a certain innocence that is part of her persona. At the same time, Sachiin J Joshi whose flex appeal is as exciting as his histrionics is surely an actor to watch out for.And now with Kaziad Gustad’s trust in the ‘S’ factor, looks like this is one pairing one should watch out for!

Sachiin Joshi shot into fame with not just his keen business acumen, but also for his roles in Azaan and Mumbai Mirror. Kaizad Gustad is best known for his comedy Bombay Boys and debut novel Of No Fixed Address, while this will be Sunny’s third mainstream full-length role after Jism 2 and Ragini MMS 2. She last did the Laila number for Shootout At Wadala. The details of the film are still under wraps.

Comparisons between Jiah Khan and Viveka Babajee unfair?

“Although there are many similarities between the tragic deaths of Jiah Khan and Viveka Babajee, it would be unfair to compare the two incidents, simply because Viveka’s family never admitted to her case being a suicide,” said PR specialist Dale Bhagwagar, who was roped in as a spokesperson by the Babajee family to address media misinterpretations after her demise.

“The Babajee family always maintained that they wanted the Police to investigate and the truth to prevail,” Bhagwagar pointed out.

The similarities include both the personalities found hanging from a ceiling fan at their apartments. Both hung from a piece of cloth. Again, in both cases, a lover was involved. While stockbroker Gautam Vora was the last person to visit Viveka at her residence, actor Aditya Pancholi’s son Suraj was the last person Jiah Khan is said to have spoken to.

There was a ‘depression theory’ which followed both deaths. Viveka was initially written about in the media, as a person who was depressed, was on anti-depressants and suicidal. But as soon as Bhagwagar took charge, he called Press conferences on behalf of the Babajee family and revealed that her family felt, this was completely untrue. “This fabricated depression theory is being floated by Gautam Vora’s friends after her demise,” he had clarified.

Now in a shocking turn of events, Jiah’s mother Rabia Khanand sister Karisma have described a similar situation. “Reports that my daughter was depressed because of work are all rubbish,” said Rabia Khan. The Khan family also denied reports of traces of alcohol and anti-depressant pills in Jiah’s stomach. Karisma stated she expected Suraj to come and tell the truth of what really happened that night and what forced Jiah to take her life.

This is yet again reminiscent of the statement the Babajee family’s spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar had made after Viveka’s demise in 2010. “The Babajee family wants Gautam Vora to come up with the truth and nothing but the truth, about the death of Viveka,” he had said.

Meanwhile, the Police is reported to have taken the Viveka Babajee demise as a reference case study to further learn and investigate Jiah Khan’s case.

Deepika Padukone’s latest release, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD), is doing great business at the box office. And apart from her chemistry with ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, her bespectacled look has also become a topic of discussion. We’ve learned that the actor — who maintains that her character, Naina Talwar, is very close to her real self — wants the glasses she wore in the film as souvenirs.

When asked, the actor says, “Naina is a special character for me. The glasses helped me live that part. I’d like to keep them as a memory of her.”

An insider close to her adds that Deepika asked Karan Johar (the film’s producer) to send her the glasses: “She’s emotional about the character, and the glasses were an important part of it. Also, people kept calling her ‘chashmish’ (a term she was addressed as in the film too).”

The spectacles are currently with the team at Dharma Productions, but Karan has already given them instructions to send the pair to Deepika. “She has never worn glasses in her other films, so she wants to keep

these as a souvenir. She’s also relieved that the audience liked her bespectacled look,” says the insider.

YJHD, which is directed by Ayan Mukerji, is having a great run in theatres. it had made 100 crores.

Ayan’s on a holiday high
The director will leave for a vacation covering Istanbul, Barcelona and a few cities in the US

Although Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani looks like a holiday in itself, for director Ayan Mukerji it was a result of a lot of hard work. And as his high-on-energy film has reached the 100 crore mark, the filmmaker has planned an elaborate vacation in Europe with his close friend Aarti.
We can now confirm that, in a few days time, Ayan will leave for Istanbul, and after soaking in the historical capital of Turkey, will move on to the Spanish city of Barcelona.
But that’s not where the talented filmmaker’s sojourn ends. After this fanciful European tour, Ayan will fly off to Canada where he will meet a few friends in Montreal, and then conclude his trip in the land of Hollywood, Los Angeles.
Once back, the director plans to set-off on another holiday, but this time with his parents. A well-deserved outing, we say.
