This week's Column by Rajeev Masand has some interesting gossip about Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor and also a blind item.

Read on

Kareena Kapoor reportedly googled the adult film actress' name to check what all the fuss was about.
On reading tabloid reports that Bigg Boss housemate and Indian-American po*n star Sunny Leone had emerged the 'most searched' celebrity on the internet recently (beating such regular favourites as Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone), Kareena Kapoor reportedly googled the adult film actress' name to check what all the fuss was about. Curious about why Leone's name was being bandied about by the papers daily, and aware that filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt had personally visited the Bigg Boss house to offer the young lady a role in his controversial new production Jism 2, Kareena is believed to have gathered her friends at home one evening and got down to business.

Having chanced upon Leone's personal website, Kareena and her friends allegedly clicked on a video, only to discover to their surprise that the young lady was in the business of 'seriously adult entertainment'. After a few minutes of uttering "chhee" and "yuck" while keeping their eyes peeled to the screen, the actress and her friends logged off, and are believed to have spent the next ten minutes chuckling away conspiratorially at their discovery.

Shahid's Self Love

Anyone who so much as passes the street within a three-kilometre radius of Shahid Kapoor is forced to look at shirtless pictures of the actor on his cell phone, say industry insiders. Obsessed with clicking pictures of his flat stomach and six-pack abs, the actor happily flaunts his body shots to anyone who's willing to take a glance.

Turns out Shahid has a collection of pictures of himself in various poses, sporting no shirt. He chooses among these to use as his display picture on his BlackBerry, and dutifully replaces the picture with a new one every day. In the gym, reportedly, he'll grab a buddy, make him stand alongside himself facing the mirror, and insist that both of them lift their tank tops and take a picture together.

Even assistant directors on the sets haven't been spared. While shooting director Kunal Kohli's film recently, virtually every AD was given a long lecture on health and fitness by Shahid, and was asked to lift his shirt, so the actor could lift his own and make the poor assistant feel bad about his body.

The Lady Who Hijacks Lunches

South Mumbai's ladies-who-lunch appear to be cheesed off with a well-known suburban jewellery designer, the wife of a has-been male actor, who they claim has made it a habit recently of hijacking their brunches and turning them into business opportunities for herself.

For one, they insist the lady in question—a former model—doesn't actually design the jewellery, merely acquires readymade pieces from Dubai and shamelessly passes them off as her own, adding a hefty commission for herself to the price of the piece. At parties and brunches, she'll reportedly pull a rock out of her purse and pass it around the table, cooing: "Only one lakh rupees", in an attempt to lure his swish crowd into parting with their money right there. On more than one occasion, guests are believed to have complained to their hosts that they are not comfortable having this lady around at social gatherings for this very reason.

The lady, however, is routinely invited to every significant party and lunch because of the elite company she keeps. She's very tight friends with the wives of two of Bollywood's biggest superstars, and at least a few top actresses too. The South Mumbai swish set is unwilling to jeopardise their friendship with the Bollywood Women's Club by leaving this lady out of their gatherings, and hence continue to invite her despite her bad manners.

Kareena did play the role of Chameli before and surely must have met some sex workers to know more about that role. Surprised she said 'cheeeee' to Sunny Leone who is way above her class!

    shame you are comparing extreme hardcore porn with some hot movies screen I bet Askshy and Kareena's scenes don't involve a double penetrative gang bang.

    Yes Maheep is on Twitter. Did you see her Display Pic of her and Gauri Khan?? It's been there since she joined twitter....And she refuses to take it down, even thought the fans ask her many times to put a New Display Picture of herself only. Gauri is helping her friends bring in followers even though she is not on twitter. Someone should get Gauri Khan to join twitter too.

    The blind item is pretty easy this time too.
    Has been actor - Sanjay Kapoor
    Jewellery Designer wife - Maheep Kapoor who used to be a model years ago & even took part in the Miss India contest.
    Wives of Bollywood's two biggest superstars - Gauri Khan & Susanne Roshan.
    You always see a bunch of wives together ....Gauri Khan ,Susanne Roshan , Deanne Pandey & Bhavana Pandey, Neelam & Maheep Kapoor. To me, it looks like the rest of the lot with their lesser known actor husbands have caught exactly the right people to sponge off on. But why pass off someone else's work as her own?

    when did maheep kapoor start designing jewelry?
    And what income does sanjay kapoor have to support maheep's designer clothes, handbag, luxury lifestyle?
    Even when he was a actor, he was a small time actor, the only hit film he had was with Madhuri in Raja

    Maheep Kapoor, Neelam's family is into jewellary design since ages. She is also professionally trained in bangkok for this profession. Also, Maheep has been a model, not Neelam.

    Yes, She is always everywhere with Gauri Khan. Gauri is dragging all the Wives everywhere she goes, whether it's Dubai, New York, or London, all at the expense of Shahrukh. All of them benefited more from Shahrukh and Gauri's Marriage. Let's see when Shahrukh Divorces Gauri and she is nobody if those Friends will still want anything to do with her. Gauri is not the one with the Cash, so I doubt Maheep and the others will hang around her for long after Shahrukh left her. YOU KNOW THAT SAYING...'MONEY DONE, FRIEND DONE, FUN DONE' ?? MAHEEP IS A CHEAP WOMAN, AND A USER.

    Lulz. What was Kareena expecting to see when she googled Sunny Leone? A pornstar site will have porn videos, d'oh! What's with the "yuck" and "chee"? Isn't everyone a little dirty down there? :P

    The Kareena thingy is hilarious...I wonder where does Masand gets to know all of this.

    Btw ,Rajeev Masand--- Katrina is the most googled followed by Aishwarya and then i think, next is Kareena ..Deepika comes nowhere in the 10 Most googled Indian people :P

    Must u always mention aishwarya's name whether she's there or not?

    The last one I think is farah khan Ali, the jewellery designer (Dj aqils wife) she is best friends with sussaane roshan

    Suzanne Roshan, Laila Khan, and Zayed Khan are her siblings. Farrah was never a model to begin with.

    It is Maheep Kapoor. Just checked out her twitter; anon your right ... she comes across as very desperate housewifeish and she is definitely leeching off Gauri Khan. Btw she is Anil Kapoor sister-in-law too, (and sonams aunt)

    It's definitely Maheep Kapoor. She always comes across as a Desperate Woman to me. Maheep has a Picture of herself and Gauri Khan on Twitter for over two years now and she is not even changing it. I always taught she was keeping that Picture of Gauri to Bring in Fans. No one knew who Maheep Kapoor was when she first joined Twitter, but when people saw her picture with Gauri then Shahrukh's Fans started Following her. So she Used Gauri to gain Followers.

    I totally beleive that Maheep doesn't design the Jewellery herself, but passes them off as her own. I always sense she is a CUNNING Woman. That's why on Koffee with Karan , Eka Kapoor called all the Filmi Housewives "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES", except Gauri Khan. The Group consists of Bhavna Panday, Maheep Kapoor, Neelam, Seema Khan, Suzzane Roshan, and a few others who joined Occationally. You can see these are all some big, strong, and desperate women.
