Yes, believe it or not! Abbas Tyrewala has just finished the 20th ( yeh yeh 20th) draft of his next script 1-800-Love.  After the super duper success of his debut film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, he knows that there is huge expectation from his next film. And so, he doesnt want to take any chance.

The script is written by his wife Pakhi, who also stars in the film opposite John Abraham.

Mumbai Mirror has a story on how Salim Khan helped Abbas fine tune the script. Here is the link

Dibakar Banerjee is going big after Khosla Ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky Lucky Oye.  Two films which we absolutely love. Well, the buzz is that Dibakar got great casting this time. Abhay Deol and Imran Khan. Yes, the new age heroes prefer those directors who have a new story to say and not the Kunal Kohlis of the world. ( Btw, Kunal Kohli has been rejected by every possible actor, whoever he approached for his new film) Talks are on with Katrina Kaif for the female lead.

Dibakar was earlier planning a film based in pre-independence Bengal. Looks like thats not happening soon.

Update on Gadhvi’s next –  Doom director Sanjay Gadhvi has finally managed to convince Imran Khan for his next film.  Here is the real dope – Post Kidnap, Imran wasnt interested in working with Gadhvi anymore. But this doom Gadhvi knows where to pull the strings.  He is quite close to Studio 18 boss Vandana Malik, whose daughter Avantika Malik is Imran’s girlfreind. Now thats not difficult puzzle to solve.  Saansu-Ma ho to aisi ho!

Here is the dope on Balki’s new film Paa. In the film, Amitabh Bachchan suffers from a disease called Progeria, a rare genetic disorder in which a person ages three times faster than a normal person. So, Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan will play parents to Amitabh Bachchan, their 13 year old son who looks 39. Woohoo….we are waiting!

Amitabh Bachchan has put out the first pictures of him and Ben Kingsley on his blog, direct from the sets of Leena Yadav’s Teen Patti. The film is currently on floor in London. The rumour is that its based on the Kevin Sapcey starrer 21. Hav a look.
