Sambhavna Seth shrugs off Sara Khan with style and dignity!

A casual comment from dancing queen Sambhavna Seth has got starlet Sara Khan’s feathers all ruffled! What’s more! The ex-Bigg Boss contestants even seem to ignite more sparks compared to the current lot in Bigg Boss 6.
Reacting to an interview quote of Sambhavna that the Ali Merchant-Sara Khan marriage in Bigg Boss was a “gimmick’, Sara exploded, “Who the hell is Sambhavna to talk about my personal life? Before talking about others she should look at herself. What is she… only a C-grade film item dancer.”
Sara further lashed out, “I wonder if she made this statement to milk some free publicity for she could never achieve what I have done at such a young age.”
Though we wouldn’t dare comment on Sara’s achievements, Sambhavna’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar reciprocated, “I don’t think my client needs to get into this, so let me tackle it myself.”
He said, “First of all, I don’t think Sam knows Ms Khan in personal life. She might have just reacted to a question asked in an interview. Secondly, though a marriage ‘on screen’ is hardly a personal affair, of course, Sara’s marriage couldn’t have been a gimmick. After all, we all know, Bigg Boss doesn’t do gimmicks – it’s a ‘reality’ show, right?”
So that leaves us with Sara’s allegation about Sambhavna seeking “free publicity”. Looking amused as we bring that up, Dale remarks, “If Sam wants to generate publicity; she has the best publicist in me! Why would she need anyone else?”
Now that’s some fitting and dignified response from Sambhavna’s publicist which Sara really needs take tips from! In fact, we won’t be surprised if Sara seeks this smooth-talker for her publicity next time!

Vikram Bhatt turns lyricist for 1920: Evil Returns

Aftab Shivdasani who plays a poet in the horror 1920-Evil Returns, will be mouthing poetry penned by none other than the film’s producer Vikram Bhatt, who is quite the closet poet.
While the producer-director had toyed with the idea of publishing a book on his poems ,he was very keen on using excerpts in the film,especially since the lead plays the character of a poet.
Originally penned in English,the lines have been translated by writer Sanjay Masoom in Hindi to fit into the film’s context.
Says a source “Vikram Bhatt has donned the hat of a writer for several films and writing has been a huge passion of his.He even has a collection of poems he has penned ,accounts of his personal experience.A few excerpts from them have been used in the film since they perfectly fit the situations in the movie.”
Talking about how the sequel will be entirely different from the first film of the franchise says producer Vikram Bhatt “We have seen that when we make sequels, the story should be different, actors should be different. Nothing should be similar except the name. Since we make such films here, we have continued with that trend. 1920: Evil Returns has nothing to do with the first part and it's a totally unique film,".
