Even his star power can't save Sanjay Dutt. The mighty Bollywood actor has been sentenced to six years imprisonment for his personal involvement in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. The coordinated terrorists' attack - the most devastating in the Indian history, had killed more than 250 people and left 700 others seriously injured. "Sir, I made a mistake 14 years ago. Please give me some time to surrender," a shocked Sanjay pleaded for leniency in a special court in Mumbai. The 48-year-old actor was also fined Rs25,000 [RM2,144] for his crime.
While a devastated Hans Isaac is spilling the beans [the hunky actor has given more private photos of him and Erra Fazira to the press just to prove that he's not making up stories about their hush-hush romance], his cheating ex-girlfriend is seemingly playing hide and seek. The popular Malaysian singer/actress has reportedly cancelled several of her public appearances, including a major road show in support of a beauty product she's endorsing, just to avoid meeting her fans and the press.
The latest photo released by Hans to several local publications.
"Erra doesn't want people to ask her about her love triangle with Hans Isaac and Engku Emran [the COO of SuriaFM] anymore," reveals an insider. "So she's pulling out of her shows. A lot of sponsors are upset with her."
Emm.. I wonder what Erra's excuse will be this time....
First, he was accused of beating up his son's best friend. (And the case is still pending) Now, Datuk K is in the news again for allegedly beating up his beloved wife of almost a year, Siti. Rumour has it that the Malaysian pop darling had to check herself into a hospital due to the alleged beating! When confronted by the press, Siti vehemently denied having any domestic trouble, saying "I could take whatever rumours flung at me then by keeping quiet and being patient. However, this time, I need to publicly deny it so that people do not view my husband in a negative manner," she told Harian Metro.
Like a durian, I'm tougher on the outside, but tender inside.
So the rumour is true -- Ella of S.H.E has got a boyfriend now! But the lucky guy isn't Wu Chun, her love interest in Hana-Kimi as you and I would have wanted it to be. (But she did grab his butt at a press conference in Taiwan) "Let's just called my boyfriend Mr Sagitarrius, ('coz he is a Sagitarrian)" the cute singer lets Galaxie in on her well-kept secret. "We are still in the process of getting to know each other better," Ella adds. "But it's good to be in love. Apart from my bandmates Hebe and Selena, I got another good friend to share the ups and downs in life with."
Ina's two men have one thing in common -- the goatee!
Yes folks, Ina Naim -- Mawi's famous ex-fiancee, has found herself a new man! The lucky guy is her fellow Hijjaz Records label-mate, Mohd Suhaimi Saad [far right], formerly of the nasyid group, In-Team. The discreet couple, who've known each other for slightly over ayear, are now officially engaged.
Asian drama fans, get ready to scream your lungs out -- Wu Chun is coming to town! The Brunei-born, Taiwan-based heartthrob, who is a member of the boyband Farenheit, is scheduled to touch down at KLIA at 1pm this Friday (25 May). You may want to jot this down: his flight number is CI 655. He’s scheduled to meet his fans at the main entrance to Berjaya Times Square at 3 PM on Saturday. We bet it’s going to be a frenzy there! The singer-turned-actor is here to promote his latest hit teen series, HanazakarinoKimitachihe, which co-starred tough cookie, Ella of S.H.E. Already generating a huge buzz around this region, the drama will be aired on 8TV, under the Asian Hours slot, 7 – 8PM, beginning 24 May. So make sure you tune in, OK.

Well, who needs John Woo when I can have Johnny Depp!
When a key person in the Hong Kong movie fraternity recently accused Chow Yun-fat of "forgetting his roots", I refused to believe him, coz I personally met Fat Kor [as he is fondly known] and he was genuinely nice. But when the Hong Kong superstar shockingly pulled out of John Woo's epic, The Battle Of Red Cliff on Tuesday, I had to give Fat Kor the benefit of the doubt. It's a known fact in the Chinese movie industry that John Woo and Fat Kor are [or is it were?] firm buddies. Woo made Fat Kor a bona fide star through classics like A Better Tomorrow and Once AThief.
The duo also did a Hollywood project, Windtalkers together. Along came Red Cliff, and Fat Kor agreed to be Woo's leading man again last year. But now, the actor has turned around saying he opted out because he only got the script last week. He didn't have time to prepare. Emm.. I wonder how much time does an incredibly gifted actor like Fat Kor need to prepare for his army general role in Red Cliff? Sources in Woo's camp denied this, saying they couldn't work with Fat Kor due to his unreasonable demands. A US$5 million paycheck and personal trailer aside, Fat Kor had reportedly demanded royalties from box office takes.
Ash darling, you're definitely hotter than Liz Hurley in saree
As we wait with baited breath for Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan to tie the thali, Mumbai is abuzz with news that their wedding cards -- embossed with two entwined As and delivered with a box of chocolate meringues, have already reached some of their close pals, including filmmaker/talk show host Karan Johar and veteran actor, Anupam Kher. Even though the handsome couple, their families and friends are keeping mum about details of the nuptials, it is strongly believed that Ash, 33, and Abhishek, 31, will wed in a private ceremony at the Bachchan's family mansion in Mumbai on April 20 as reported earlier.
Handsome couple Abhishek and Ash are sure crowd pleasers!
Once again, it was a night Bollywood fans were anticipating and journos, dreading. As it turned out, however, the 10th Zee Cine Awards held at Genting Highlands on 1 April surprised everyone, especially journos, due to the impeccable time keeping. (Alas, I was disappointed that Zee TV refused to arrange any press conferences or interviews.) This must have been the first Bollywood award show that (relatively) started and ended on time. And I must stress that this must have also been the first Bollywood event where everyone who promised to turn up actually did! From Abishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Shilpa Shetty to Saif Ali Khan to Priyanka Chopra and Preity Zinta. Even those who were not promised to us like Urmila Matondkar, Rekha and Sri Devi came, along with some has-beens. Everyone, except for the best actor and best actress winners Aamir Khan (he doesn’t do award shows!) and Kajol. The sweetest moment of the night must have been when Abhishek Bachchan (he won the best supporting actor award) got his fiancee Aishwarya Rai to dance along with him. For more juicy details on Zee Cine Awards, check out the 16 April issue of Galaxie magazine’s Hello Bolly.
Shah Rukh, seen with Priyanka Chopra, proves he can still do it!
