Simi's crazy request to Shahid

Simi's crazy request to Shahid

Simi Garewal's new chat show features most desirable actors and actresses, who talk about their single hood status and romantic affairs.
Shahid Kapur, one of the actors, was happy to be on the show, but he was amused to get a terse command from the lady — "Wear the Mausam airforce uniform and come on the set!"
Shahid was taken aback by the instruction and checked with his producers if they could get permission from the Air force authorities to do so. However, the officials turned down the request saying the uniform was only allowed to be used on a film set. Hence, Kapur will be seen in his regular casuals on the show.

Actor Shahid Kapoor has finally resumed shooting for Mausam after recuperating from the hand injury he had sustained on the sets of his dad Pankaj Kapur’s directorial debut. The actor even tweeted, “Back on set Mausam... Last 5 days. 25th I wrap the film...”
Having completed eight years in the industry recently, the actor had earlier tweeted: “Today I complete 8 years as an actor.... Thank u all for all the love.. I’m here only cause of u ... So thank u again !!” But celebrations apart, the actor seems to find his name being dragged into one controversy after another of late. And the star is surprised when he sees his name popping up from unexpected quarters, even as are the other names involved.

For instance, when the actor was away shooting for his dad’s film, there was some buzz about him having approached actor Ajay Devgn to push forth the dates of his action film Singham to avoid it clashing with his own romantic drama. However, an insider reveals that all such reports are not true at all.
“Neither Shahid nor anyone else from the unit of Shahid’s film ever approached Rohit Shetty or Ajay to change their release date for Singham. We do not know who or where these reports come from,” said the source.
In fact, Shahid is totally engrossed in his film and has little or no time to think about anything else. “So it’s funny how rumours of either his link-ups or such other ones originate from,” the source added.
“Shahid has been eating, breathing and living only this film since the last year. He has pushed himself as an actor in this film too,” said another unit hand, as he recalled shooting for a particular scene in Switzerland.
“We were to shoot in knee deep snow. But it could be dangerous to health, so we wanted to shoot with fake snow. But Shahid refused to give in and shot continuously for six days in the knee-deep snow. We had to have ambulances on stand by,” he revealed adding that they may not be surprised to see Shahid having withdrawl symptoms post the wrap up.
But lucky for Kapoor, soon after he wraps up Mausam, the actor will plunge into his next two projects including Heer Aur Ranjha and Kunal Kohli’s film with actress Priyanka Chopra.

Angela Jonsson admits to going out with Ranbir Kapoor, but not with Shahid

Ranbir And I Have dated, Says Angela Jonsson

Angela Jonsson admits to going out with Ranbir Kapoor, but not with Shahid
While she's more famous for being Ranbir Kapoor's arm candy at recent events, Angela Jonsson is also a calendar girl. Her link-up to the Casanova actor recently made headlines as did her tryst with Shahid Kapoor.

Says a source close to the model, "The last couple of weeks have been traumatic for Angela and her family.

She has been caught up in one controversy after another, apart from being accused of linking herself to hot and happening stars only for publicity and to get a foothold into the film industry.

Angela is a well-behaved and soft-spoken girl from a decent family and was aghast to find herself in the spotlight with negative stories piling about her.

While she has dated Ranbir, has attended parties and has gone out with him in public, Angela has not interacted with Shahid at all beyond meeting him a few times at parties, one of which Ranbir accompanied her to."

The source adds that what bothered Angela was when stories of her dating Ranbir started getting leaked to the media and was then blamed on her. "Angela has little knowledge about B-Town so it came as a shock to her when there were reports that she was spreading these stories."

Angela says, "I have always refrained from commenting on my personal life so far but the news reports that have been doing the rounds have caused immense and unnecessary stress to my family and to me.

Therefore I need to set the record straight once and for all. Yes, Ranbir and I have dated. We have gone out to dinner like two normal adults in the city.
As any gentleman would and should, he asked me out for the record. Since winning the Kingfisher Calendar Hunt, my modeling career has done better than I ever expected. None of the successes can be attributed to anyone other than to my hard work and that of my agents."

On Shaks, Angela says, "I have met Shahid socially and haven't spoken much to him at all. I've met him at Anushka Sharma's birthday, which Ranbir took me to and again at Ranbir's house party as well. I do not have his phone number and have never texted him."

Ranbir remained unavailable for comment.

Shahid's version
A source close to Shahid says, "Shahid has met Angela socially a few times ” at his birthday party, Ranbir's house party and Anushka's party where Angela came with Ranbir. They have never chatted or met beyond that. There is nothing more to it. In fact, Shahid was very upset to hear about stories linking him and Angela."
