It has been rightly said that Bipasha Basu is high on the list of every young man wishing to get married with her. But only stars have an opportunity to get married to her and that too in movies only. In Pooja Bhatt's production 'Jism' even the Bollywood's bad guy Gulshan Grover plays the role of her husband.

Bipasha is becoming very popular these days. She has a crowd of fans hanging around her and thus creates a law and order problem. During her recent visit to the pink city, Jaipur in Rajasthan, the actress became a target of manhandling. The incident took place at Planet M, where Bipasha had gone for the premiere of 'Jism'. The film crew visited the music store for promotion of the movie. After the interactive session, miscreants broke through the cordon and started harassing Bipasha. The actress had to rush to the manager's room to escape from hooligans. Meanwhile, the police arrested a youth identified as Waaris for harassing Bipasha. Later the police cleared the crowds after which the movie crew moved out. Despite this some youths followed Bipasha's car and compelled her to seek protection again in a nearby police station.

Even as Anil Kapoor ages, he moves on from young to younger female leads.

January 25, 2003. What is it with Anil Kapoor that he still manages to run around trees with young girls? Even as his contemporaries like Jackie Shroff have moved on to parallel roles, Anil gets to date heroines half his age.

He has had his trysts with Kajol, Raveena Tandon, Aishwarya Rai and Rani Mukherjee. Recently, Anil has been paired with the Kapoor sisters. He got to star opposite the elder Kapoor girl, Karisma, with Indra Kumar's Rishtey.

Now, it's his turn to date Karisma's younger sister Kareena. And that too in a forthcoming film to be produced by his one-time hit heroine and now bhabhi, Sridevi.

From Sridevi (now Kapoor) to Kareena Kapoor, it's been a long trip for Mr Kapoor.

Director Agathiyan has to his credit an accomplishment which no other Tamil director has. He is the only Tamil director who has won a national award for direction. So when he comes to Telugu there are bound to be expectations. Agathiyan, whose national award winning Kadhal Kotai which was dubbed in Telugu as Premalekha (Ajit, Devayani), is coming to Tollywood with a new romantic subject.

Agathiyan who is a master in writing taut screen plays loves to experiment, both in content and language. As far as his new Telugu film goes, the cast is still being finalised, and it will go to floors this Valentine's day. The film has four heroes and two heroines. Yes, it is not a typical love story, says Agathiyan.

In fact, the four are not friends at all. That is the surprise of it all, he says. "The film is for the youth. It is a sensitive film within the parameters of commercial formula," he says without sounding contradictory.

But why love again? "Why not?" he asks. "Love is the only thing that never goes out of fashion."

Is it Ash or Diya Mirza, Katrina Kaif or Amrita Arora? Phew! Salman Khan may have lost his popularity among the ordinary mortals but he clearly is not short on the women, who fall for him like nine pins. In fact, Khan's natural charm ensures that he is constantly surrounded by a bevy of beautiful damsels - not always in distress though.

After model-turned-actor Katrina Kaif went to town disowning her friendship with the unfortunate Khan (rumours insist that she lost a role in the next Mukesh Bhatt venture after her liaison with Khan became public knowledge though Mukesh Bhatt denies it), now it's Amrita Arora's turn to face the music.

The grapevine is abuzz that the new heart throbbing for Salu bhai is none other than that of the svelte and sexy Amrita! Malika Arora's baby sister (the former veejay who has one flop Kitne Door Kitne Paas to her credit), has off late been spotted at all the parties and hotspots in the city along with the enfant terrible from Bollywood.

Well, well, wonder who's kitni door and who's kitne paas as far as Khan bhai is concerned?

And one thought all star kids aspire to be stars, eh? Well, star sons, in particular, find it rather easy to get into their father’s shoes early on, not having known any other profession. But Ranbir Kapoor, the strapping 20-year-old replica of his mom – the yesteryears’ bubbly actress Neetu Singh – has consciously kept away from the onscreen razzmatazz of the tinsel world.

Being a part of the Kapoor Khandaan has rubbed off on him also but not because he wants to be an actor but 'coz he wants to make a mark behind the camera. For if there’s one thing that interests young Ranbir it’s the process of filmmaking and that explains his two-year stint at learning direction at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.

Ranbir admits to being "clueless about acting as yet" but if he does plan to face then arclights ever, rest assured his entire family – everyone ranging from grand uncles Shammi and Shashi, to uncles Randhir and Rajiv, papa Rishi and extended 'family'uncles such as Rakesh Roshan, Jeetendra, Boney, Anil and Tutu Sharma, would be ready with scripts to do the needful.

Karan Johar too has evinced an interest (acting wise only) in the shy star son, at a party recently. Well, the only production house left out now is AB Corp. Any guesses as to why offers may not be forthcoming from there?
