Terrible terrible news! Christmas was never so black. An hour or so back (2:15 pm), Asheem Chakravarty, singer and percussionist of our favourite band Indian Ocean,  passed away.

In october 2009, Asheem suffered a heart attack at the Doha airport on the last leg of Indian Ocean’s US and Middle East tour. And then he went into coma. In the last few days, he condition was better and there was news of him slowly recovering from coma. But it seems his condition was still critical. And nobody ever expected this. RIP.

And here is  what we will all miss….video from one of the last concerts where Asheem performed his famous Kandissa alaap. The video and audio quality is not good but those who know their music, well its Indian Ocean.

Govinda 2If Manoj Night Shyamalan ever decides to make a sequel to The Sixth Sense, we would pray hard that Govinda gets the title role. Cole Sear can grow up into a chubby & funny man. Why ? Because Govinda is born to say that popular line – I see dead people! Believe it or not, but Govinda believes so.

Check out this story in today’s Mid-day. How Govinda and his brother Keerti talk to their dead mother. Ripley’s Believe It or Not or ROFL! For more colourful & bizarre Govinda stories, click here , here and here. All about Govinda slapping, abusing, cancelling shoots for the weirdest reasons you have ever heard.

And this is not the first time. The stories are many and here is one of your recent favourites. Govinda was in London shooting for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s King Con, which he wanted to name Show Man. One day suddenly Govinda called up the dialogue writer close to him, slapped him hard and asked him why he is conspiring to kill him. WTF can be the only natural reaction of any normal being. The writer complained to Dhulia and walked out of the film.

That was just the beginning. Next day,  there was a metal pole by the roadside at the shooting location of the film.  Govinda demanded that the pole be removed or he will not shoot. Why ? Because the pole is giving bad vibes. Now how to explain to Govinda that London is NOT India and he can’t just remove anything from any public place because its giving you bad vibe. Pole remained there. Shoot cancelled. Location change.

And more such incidents followed. He felt that the name King Con is not lucky and when Dhulia decided not to change the title, Govinda walked out of the film. He also refused to shoot in front of the Buckingham Palace because he was a sitting MP then and so he would not dance in front of London’s Royal Family Palace. Hehehehehohohoho! He even refused to dance in front of a Queen’s lookalike. In this scenario, calling him “Insane” will be under-rating him.

Last we heard, Dhulia has patched up with Govinda and have decide to work together. Terms and conditions will be according to Govinda’s ghostly interpretations. Boo!

Feroze Khan RIP

He was the original dude of bollywood, the desi cowboy. Always high on style quotient and surrounded by damsels. Even at 70, he was still the same. Unlike others, he never try to hide anything that he loved.

News just trickled in : Feroze Khan is dead. He passed away at his Bangalore farmhouse on sunday late night. He was 70 years old and was battling cancer for more than a year.

Just a few days back(friday, i guess), he was discharged from Mumbai’s Leelavati Hospital. He wanted to visit his Bangalore farmhouse, was missing his pets, specially the horses. May be, he knew it all. The end was just too close.

Qurbani, Jaanbaz, Dayavan and Dharmatma were some of his big hits. The actor-director-producer was last seen in 2007’s blockbuster Welcome.
