"I know it can be intimidating, and it may be easier to just say, 'Eh, maybe tomorrow,' Trust me, I get it. I know what it's like to juggle a lot of things: family, friends, work.

A rocky phase for Lara-Mahesh?

It's almost four months (February 19) since Mahesh and Lara tied the knot in Goa. However, sources reveal that everything isn't exactly hunky dory between the tennis star and the B-town actress.

Tension over Lara's ex-boyfriend Kelly and the fact that they are still in touch has put their marriage onto a rocky terrain. Even though matters haven't got out of hand, we are told that constant fights over professional and personal matters have put a big question mark over their relationship.

A source close to the couple spills the beans, "Lara and Mahesh have been having arguments over an array of things. Firstly, it wasn't a great idea to be working partners. Mahesh co-produced her first home production Chalo Dilli and they had major stress during the promotion and publicity of it. She felt he wasn't devoting enough time to their first joint project, while he wanted to stay out of the whole thing. Even at the press event during promotions, there was visible tension between the two."

Another reason for fights between them is the fact that Lara is still in touch with her ex, Kelly Dorjee. A common friend of Lara and Kelly says, "Lara isn't the sorts to dump someone with whom she had a seven-year long relationship. She is still friends with Kelly. Mahesh, however, isn't too happy with this and has expressed his displeasure. Also, Lara's social life and her set of friends don't go hand-in-hand with Mahesh and his set of people. There's natural clash between the two and it's something that needs to be addressed."

Mahesh told BT, "The only trouble we are having is figuring out which city to meet in. Both of us just got back from Paris. I head to London and she, to Toronto and we'll meet again during Wimbledon." Adds a friend of Lara, "This rumour started because Lara gave an interview saying she might not co-produce her next film with Mahesh."

Rajinikanth gets 24 cr for Rana!

Rajinikanth fans, the world over, are immersed in prayer. Ever since the Tamil superstar and one of Asia's most famous actors landed himself in a Singapore hospital with a kidney ailment, the South industry is deeply concerned.

Rubbishing rumours of a kidney transplant, the superstar's son-in-law and this year's National Award winning actor Dhanush told media persons that, "The superstar is fine. He will be out of hospital in a week or in 10 days. And, he will start shooting for Rana."

Ironically on one side, Rajini's health is of prime concern. And on the other side, the trade is talking about how Rajinikanth has reportedly been paid 24 crores as just his first installment on Rana. A source says, "Rajini Sir is still India's highest paid actor. Besides the reported 24 cr that he has already received, the family will also have a stake in the IPR because Rajini's second daughter Soundarya is a partner in the project."

Meanwhile, Dhanush who is Rajini's elder son-in-law (married to the superstar's daughter Aishwarya) has in recent times become the official spokesperson for the family. Many in Chennai see him as the "son" of the superstar. He is the one to whom the film industry and Rajini's fans have been turning to for the latest updates on the ailing star's health.

Priyanka, Abhishek bond big

Dostana and Drona co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan have ironed out their little tension, that's what a little birdie tells us.

The two bumped into each other at Mannat where Shah Rukh Khan had thrown a party post his team's cricket match with the Mumbai IPL team and bonded galore.

Buzz was that PC and AB jr had little issue with each other post Dostana. Though the reason for the stress remains unknown to date, we are glad to see the two laughing and having a good time. Do a movie now you two!

Is Ranbir Bipasha's best buddy?

Ranbir Kapoor and Bipasha Basu actually got along like a house on fire while shooting for their film Bachna Ae Haseeno and they continue to share a healthy respect for one another.

In the three years since Bachna, the Bengali bombshell and B-town's most sought-after bachelor have constantly stayed in touch sharing secrets of their personal relationships and chatting like real buddies do. They would go for long drives and dinners. Sometimes John joined them too. Today, however, both are single. Bips has ended her nine-year-old relationship with John and Ranbir, who is reportedly wanting to spend some 'me time', is also alone.

In fact, he is currently in London, reading books at the Hyde Park; walking around without an agenda and doing his own thing. But one hears that he is always there to lend Bipasha a shoulder.

A source says, "Even when Ranbir was dating Deepika and Katrina, he usually confided in Bipasha about everything. Likewise, she would also share her innermost thoughts and fears with him. At that point, she was blissed out in her relationship with John and would actually tell RK Junior how lucky she felt to be in a steady relationship. Obviously, post her break-up, one of the people she has been confiding in is Ranbir.

Bipasha, however, told BT, "I don't need no shoulder to cry on please! Yes, Ranbir and I are friends, but we are busy all the time. So we meet once in a while.''

I'm No. 1 in the industry: SRK

Shah Rukh Khan isn't called the Badshah Khan for nothing. After his team's favorable performance in the IPL, Shah Rukh is confidence personified, and he still has something to tom tom about - himself!

Yes, at a recent event where Shah Rukh Khan launched the first theatrical promo of his much ambitious project Ra.One, SRK went on to say that he plays the superhero 'G1' in the movie. And just what does G1 stand for? The witty and immodest SRK explained, "G stands for Gauri and 1 is my position in the industry!"

Shah Rukh added, "Ra.One is a father-son love story. It's a family entertainer like most of my films are, and is meant for kids and adults alike. We have released the promotions nine months before the actual release of the movie because we would like the audience to know who G1 really is. So our entire endeavour is to introduce G1 to the masses in the best possible way. I want them to know the superhero and everything he is capable of."

SRK's 'Always Kabhi Kabhi' is also all set for release. With Morani's daughter Zoa all set to debut in that one, and with Morani allegedly being involved in the 2G scam, does SRK regret any decision. Shah Rukh simply says, "My equation with the Moranis hasn't changed at all. We remain good friends even today." Well, we guess, such controversies do happen Always Kabhi Kabhi.

SRK upset over Chammak Challo leak

Just a day prior to the unveiling of the theatrical trailer of Ra.One, the much talked about song Chammak Challo was leaked on the internet.

Many thought that leaking the song, which stars Kareena Kapoor and is rendered by Akon, was just another publicity funda to get maximum attention for Ra.One. However, Shah Rukh denied any such intention.

Expressing his regret over the leak, he said, "I am very upset that the song was leaked. We have tracked the IP address and are hunting for the person who's responsible for the leak. Also, this is not the final version of Chammak Challo. It's one of the initial recordings."

Looking at the positive side, SRK said that he was happy by audiences' response to the song. "I am glad that people have liked this one. I am now sure the final version will be a hit."

Kangna gets closer to Salman's family

It seems Kangna Ranaut has become very close to Salman Khan's family. The actress is seen at his Bandra residence very often and she is invited for most of the private dos by the Khan Clan.

Salman and Kangna are good friends and they plan to work together for Mahesh Manjrekar's Hindi remake of Marathi film Mee Shivaji Raje Bhosale Boltoy. However, more than the actor, Kangna is closer to his family.

After Arpita's birthday party, Kangna became very close to her and thus when it came to the special screening of Salman's Ready organised by Arpita, Kangna was on the special guests list.

The actress attended the special screening and was seen bonding great time with the Khandaan. We wonder what's on Kangna's mind.

Shahid's ready to take on Ranbir, Imran

As we reported earlier Shahid Kapoor's forthcoming film Mausam has been delayed to avoid clash with Ajay Devgn's Singham. Both the films were supposed to release on July 22. However, Mausam will now release on September 9.

Shahid Kapoor's film will now release with Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar and Yash Raj films' Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Both the films have a good buzz in the industry. Though Shahid avoided a clash with Ajay's film, he will not have to compete with Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan's films.

According to a source, the post production work of Mausam is going on in full swing and the first promo will release on June 24 with Indra Kumar's Double Dhamaal. The second promo will release on July 15 with Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

Though there are two big films releasing on the same day Shahid seems confident and unaffected by the competition.

Squatters take over Shilpa's estate

Shilpa Shetty's estate in Britain, along with those of a host of celebrities, has been taken over by a gang of squatters. The celeb residents of the St George's Hill community in Weybridge, Surrey, are being asked to be "vigilant".

Six squatters moved into the abandoned three million pound, six-bedroom Woodlawn Cottage on the estate in April, claiming they were not acting illegally. "It is legal for me to be here. I found the place on the Internet. The locks had been broken off, no one was living here," a squatter was quoted as saying.

Films go wrong, not filmmakers: Akshay

As he talks about his hits and misses, Akshay Kumar says he's all set to get back to action movies, doing what he loves most - dishum, dishum

In the post-" Dabangg" months, every actor worth his six pack is turning to action. The sky-diving, the kicks, the punches and the dialogue-baazi are ruling the big screen. Akshay Kumar who'd turned his back on the action genre, now wants to reclaim his crown. And the timing couldn't be better. The audiences are lapping up the dhishum dhishum. He talks about his faults, films and future plans. Read on...

You're working with newer lot of filmmakers, like Prabhu Deva and Dibakar Banerjee. Getting out of your comfort zone?
You can say that. It is a deliberate decision to work with directors with a different sensibility. I realized that I was doing the same kind of films. That happens to an actor without realising. A certain kind of film works, and you think this is what the audience likes, or wants, and you keep following that pattern. Especially, when you get success in that genre. And then you settle into a comfort zone. I started enjoying doing comedy films. The same thing had happened when I was just doing action films. Now I want to get out of my comfort zone, and that is why I have signed up with directors I haven't worked with before.

Until last year, you were said to be the highest paid actor. Are you making exceptions now?
I think every actor does that. When I began as an actor, I was very clear that I was in it for money and fame. Those were the driving factors. But that changes after you reach a certain level. For me, things changed after "Sangharsh". I really loved the part, and I accepted it. It hasn't been about money for a long time. It's not about money anymore.

Were you happy with the response to your last film, "Thank You"?
No. honestly, I wasn't. I thought the audiences would've liked it more. I still don't know why it fell short of the people's expectations. I tried to figure out the problem. With "Tees Maar Khan", I know why it didn't work. I think audiences found it too over the top. Though it's not a flop, I spoke to people who saw "TY", and have taken the feedback seriously.

About mistakes, you keep making films with directors with whom you've delivered flop films. Why?
I believe that films go wrong, not filmmakers. After "Chandni Chowk To China", Nikhil Advani made a "Patiala House", which was appreciated. You can't write off a filmmaker, because one film goes wrong. I am working with Tony again after "Blue", because I still think that no Indian film has looked the way "Blue" did. Also you can't just blame the director. I had faith in the scripts too, so I should get equal share of the blame. Actors get credit for hits, and let the directors take the fall for flops. That's not fair.

Every actor is doing action now. But you have steered away so far. Is "Rowdy Rathore" the answer?
Yes, I want to get back into the action space. I haven't done one in the last few years, and I have been missing doing stunts and I am itching to get back to it. I want to do fight scenes, chase scenes, crashes, jumps, kicks... There is a newness to it. Action has been redefined since I last did it, and that is exciting. It will be challenge to push myself to perform those scenes. I have always done my own stunts, and I am looking forward to some challenging sequences.

There were reports that you and Shah Rukh were working on a joint production. What happened?
There was no such project. We have never talked about it.
Salman Khan hasn't worked with director Kabir Khan and producer Aditya Chopra before and we hear that the situation is kind of awkward for the duo who will soon start filming Ek Tha Tiger which also stars Katrina Kaif.

Since Salman is not a phone person, Adi seems to have decided that the best way to communicate with his hero is through Kat.

Since Kat shares a good bond with the having worked with them before, she doesn't mind playing the messenger between them and her ex-boyfriend. Buzz is that both Khan and Chopra haven't really opened up to each other. Perhaps it has something to do with the producer being close to his rival SRK. We are sure things will improve once they begin shooting for the film.

Ash dashes to the sets

Aishwaya Rai Bachchan is a workaholic. She came back to Mumbai from Russia late at night, did some meetings that very night and was seen shooting for a commercial early morning.

Ash is back in town from Russia (she flew there after she dazzled the red carpet at Cannes) after pleasantly surprising her hubby Abhishek Bachchan, who is busy shooting for Players, refused to relax even after a hectic travel schedule and cancelled her weekend off too, to hit the sets. She has been shooting for back-to-back five nights.

Sheila's Jawani gets revived!

If you thought Katrina and her Sheila's Jawani has been done with, you are mistaken! BIG Star IMA awards on Star Plus will see a completely revamped avatar of Katrina as Sheila.

Ace choreographer Ganesh Hedge came up with an innovative Broadway version of Sheila Ki Jawani to keep this chartbuster number alive. Katrina will be seen in a sizzling new look that will take your breath away.

Says Ganesh Hedge,' Sheila ki Jawani is an extremely popular number even after months of its release and I wanted to use this song for the awards. However I wanted to create something that has never been done before and thus the Broadway version. It's all about some interesting choreography and Katrina just adds the right spice to it."

Garam Masala girl gets hitched

The " Garam Masala" girl, Daisy Bopanna who played one of Akshay Kumar's love interests in the Akki-John Abraham-starrer directed by Priyadarshan, has tied the knot with Priyanka Chopra's former secretary Prakash Jaju's son Amit.

Amit, a senior manager in the fraud and investigations wing of an advisory company, married the actress in Indore on Saturday.

Considering Daisy couldn't make much headway in Bollywood after her debut movie, maybe her father-in-law can now take charge of her career. After all, he has had some practice with one of the A-listers of today! What say?

Nikhil's the new baddie in B-wood

Bad is the new good and none another than Nikhil Dwivedi is trying to revel in this fact.

He will be leading in not one but two back-to-back films with grey shades. The success of "Shor In The City"has finally done this talented lad some good, and he is raring to go again. Our sources have given us a whiff that the first venture with which the " Raavan" and "SITC" actor goes on the floors is a sort of '"Bunty Aur Babli" on acid', our very own answer to "Bonnie And Clyde".

Nikhil is actually being lauded by many as somebody who has waited out patiently for interesting roles in different films rather than going the mainstream way, where he did not meet with much success after his debut film, "My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves", even though his performance got noticed. Says noted trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "I was really surprised to see his performance in "Raavan", and he has taken it a notch above with " Shor In the City." These two films have brought his talent to the fore, but this needs to be further tapped. It should be noted that both the films had multiple characters, despite that Nikhil registered a strong impact in both films. He's certainly here to stay.

Madhur Bhandarkar's reclusive heroine

Madhur Bhandarkar's star cast for his much talked about project, Heroine, is about to get bigger. The director has envisioned a new supporting character, based on the life of the late actress, Nadira.

And so, his search is on for a 70 to 75 year-old actress to essay this Bollywood diva, who retired from the industry and lived a reclusive life, as she reveled in her former silver-screen glory, in her small apartment.

Our source revealed, " Madhur Bhandarkar has changed the character's name, but she is clearly modeled on Nadira. It's a role of a yesteryear actress, who led a lonely, isolated life, without family and friends.

She simply relived her glorious days as a screen queen with people who visited her. It's the frightening face of Bollywood - the other side of the glamour business, much after all the star attention fizzles out."

Nadira's performances in Sri 420 and Aan made her an icon of the 1950s. And so, Bhandarkar's search has not been easy, as many of the actresses of that time have passed away. However, the director is reportedly keen on one of the two surviving divas Nimmi or Shyama. When contacted, Bhandarkar remained unavailable for comment.

Big B - Arjun team up for a thriller

Amitabh Bachchan and Arjun Rampal will be seen together in Pritish Nandi Communication's (PNC) untitled film. According to an industry insider PNC's has revived its shelved project with Big B with a completely new script.

Pritish Nandi's son Kushan Nandi will make his directorial debut with this thriller. It can be recalled that a film based on Bollywood starring Mallika Sherawat opposite Big B was announced last year. Unfortunately, the film got shelved in the scripting stage and it is believed the same film has been revised with a complete new script.

Arjun and Big B have been signed to play the key roles while the leading lady is yet to be finalised. The duo has earlier worked together in films like Aankhen and Ek Ajnabee. Their next thriller will go on floors by late 2011.

Arnie never touched me: Ex-nanny

A former nanny to Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Shriver has claimed that the governator had a wandering eye, but never got physical with her or any other female staffer.

The nanny - who worked with the couple during the Mildred "Patty" Baena years – told TMZ the actor was a strict one household staffer type of guy.

Arnold "was a flirt, but he never touched me inappropriately, or anyone else that I could tell," she said.

The former staffer believes Patty must have aggressively pursued Arnie since - as far as she could tell - he was "respectful" of all the other female staffers.

Ben Kingsley to act in Lankan film

Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley would star in a movie made by Sri Lankan filmmaker Chandran Rutnam that would depict a terror attack on the capital city.

The movie "A Common Man" revolves around the character played by Kingsley. The plot features an attempt by terrorists to blow up Colombo, Rutnam told Xinhua.

The film is a co-production between Hollywood and Sri Lanka.

"The story is adapted from a concept that has been done before. But I have taken that concept and turned it around into a situation in Sri Lanka. This is a rare opportunity for Sri Lanka because this is the first time we are directing Hollywood actors. We shot the whole movie within 27 days," said Rutnam, who also wrote the script.

Rutnam's company - Film Location Services - has in the past facilitated international movies being shot in Sri Lanka including " Indiana Jones: The Temple of Doom" starring Harrison Ford.

But this is the first time he or any Sri Lankan is directing a Hollywood movie.

Rutnam said the doors have opened for Sri Lanka to be used as a film location, and he expects a lot of movies being shot in the country.

He urged Sri Lankan filmmakers to look beyond just the domestic market and think of the international audience as well when making a film.

Snooki’s car crash sends 2 cops to hospital

'Jersey Shore' star Snooki was questioned by the police after she allegedly sent two Italian police officers packing in hospital after she rammed into their patrol car.

The 23-year-old was driving the Fiat Multipla with co-star Deena in the front seat and production crew at the back when the accident happened.

Police denied reports that she had been 'taken into custody' but they revealed that she might face charges at a later date, reports the Daily Mail.

The accident happened in the Renaissance city of Florence where the crew arrived earlier this month to film series four of the hit MTV series that will be screened later this year.

According to an insider source, drink and drugs were not believed to have been the cause of the accident and a test for both was carried out.

Olsen twins to open their first store

Actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who co-run two fashion ranges - The Row and Elizabeth, and James, are keen to open their first store.

"I think every designer would say they'd love to open their own store, just because when you produce a collection, this whole room will be filled with God only knows how many racks and 150 pieces.

"What hits the stores is maybe ten pieces, in different colourway. So it would be nice to be able to represent it in your own way," contactmusic.com quoted Ashley as saying.

"But it's all a matter of timing and when it makes sense, and it's a really big undertaking, so it depends," she said.

Salman Khan in trouble again

The actor may have unwittingly bought land which legally cannot be bought or sold as it belongs to the entire village.

On Thursday, more than 250 villagers gathered at the talathi's office in Panvel, protesting what they say is an illegal sale of their land to a political leader and actor Salman Khan.

The actor, who is embroiled in two other court cases, may be looking at a protracted legal battle again, because according to the rule book, buying or selling of land which belongs to any village is a cognisable offence.

The sleepy Vaje village near Panvel, home to 307 families, is putting up a spirited fight for 83 acres of surplus land they were given by the government to be tilled.

The Panch along with the villagers were joint custodians of this land till it was sold off to Congress leader Harbhans Singh and Salman. Villagers allege they were conned into parting with their land by the Panch, who convinced them that the alternative to selling was allowing the government to confiscate the land.

"The government gave the land to poor farmers for cultivation. Sometime back our Panch told us that government was planning to take the land back and in order to meet the expenses of putting up a fight, we need to sell a part of the land.

Recently we found out that 2.5 acres of the land had been sold to actor Salman Khan without even seeking any clearance from us, which is mandatory. Nobody knows where the money went," said Vishnu Patil, a resident of the village.

The villagers allege that the remaining 81 acres was also sold off unscrupulously. "The Panch gave us the same story and we agreed assuming that it was in our interest. We were conned into signing documents.

It was much later that we found out that the land was being sold to a political bigwig for profit," said Ganesh Patil, another resident, adding, "Though we did get some money from the second sale, we are all against letting outsiders grab it. We want all our land back."

The resolute villagers have filed complaints with Collector of Raigadh district who in turn has ordered an inquiry into the transactions. The inquiry is based on a circular dated January 2009 issued by the Raigadh District Collector, which says this about the vast tracts of lands owned by villages: "Since names of all the villagers cannot be put on the land records only names of Panch are put on them.

However, it has come to our notice that Panch or their kins sell off such land claiming to be theirs. These vast stretches of land are for the benefit for of public at large and not property of handful of people."

It further states, "It has been found that not only such sales have taken place but local Talathis and Circle Officers have given clearances to such sales. In some cases even the names of new owners have been added to land records.

This is a cognisable offence. In future no such sale or purchases should be allowed and would be considered as offences and action would be taken."

The panch however claims to be ignorant of the existence of any such rule. Bhagwan Patil, a member of the Panch, said, "We had no clue this circular. We are uneducated villagers. The officials who registered the names of new owners should have at least warned us. If we are being held responsible for this, so should they."

Patil also maintained that the decision to sell the land was taken in order to meet the expenses incurred during taking care of government formalities. "Every penny from both the sales was accounted for," he added.

The 7/12 land extract bearing Salman Khan's name
The Collector's office confirmed that an inquiry has been ordered. "Land belonging to the entire village cannot be sold or bought. In this case the villagers allege that they were conned by the Panch. Now we are hearing out the villagers, next we will question the Panch and buyers," said Chandrasen Pawar, Nayab Tehsildar of Panvel.

"We will finish the inquiry and recommend for both the deals to be scrapped. There is no doubt that the deals are in violation of the law," said a senior revenue department's official.

When Mumbai Mirror contacted Harbhans Singh, he said, "I had no idea of any such law. The deal was cleared by the then Tehsildar and even our name is on 7/12 extracts. I have paid the entire value of the plot to the village and I should not be blamed."

Several attempts to get in touch with Salman and his father Salim Khan, who manages the actor's property matters, did not yield any results.

Meanwhile both Khan and Singh have started work on their plots. A trip to the village revealed that they were constructing compound walls to demarcate their properties.

Who will romance Aishwarya?

Madhur Bhandarkar is having a tough time deciding on an actor to play Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's young lover in Heroine.

While Arjun Rampal has been signed to play a male lead, there's another role for a younger actor who Ash romances and gets into a serious relationship with, in the film. The three actors in running for this role are Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan and Prateik.

A source says, "Ash has a very interesting track with a young actor who falls in love with her. He basically uses her to climb the social ladder and make it big in the industry. There are also a few romantic scenes between the actor and Ash. It's a role that's being battled for between the three actors."

While Imran and Ranbir were the two obvious first choices, Prateik's name has given the development an interesting twist. None of the mentioned actors have worked with Ash and the pairing would be a first time. The source adds, "The decision is yet to be made but it will be one of these three guys. Madhur is still in the process of casting and will be making his decision in the coming weeks."

Madhuri buys a mall in Florida

The industry is abuzz with the news that Madhuri Dixit has invested in a mega property in the US. An insider swears that the dhak dhak actress has bought a mall in Florida worth millions of dollars.

The source gives details, "The mall is in downtown Miami. Though Madhuri lives in Denver, she decided to buy the mall in Miami, Florida as it is one of the hottest places for recreation and sees a lot of tourists which means shopping, and good business for a mall! It's purely for investment purposes. She doesn't plan to run it herself. She has also taken a loan from a bank. Big businesses may be taking a hit in the US, but she is determined to make it a profitable venture. Madhuri's children are growing up and she wants to establish herself as an entrepreneur as her acting career is already on the wane."

The source adds that for accounting reasons Madhuri's mall project is under wraps. "Madhuri has been instructed by her financial advisors not to talk about it. She has been signing TV reality shows and is keen to sign films to pay interest for the bank loans every month. Her husband, Dr Sriram Nene, is a major source of support for her and he's also an advisor in the project."

Madhuri's business manager Rikku Rakeshnath however maintains, "Madhuri hasn't invested in any property at all in the USA or India."

Meet the gossip boy 'Abhay Deol'

Those who think Abhay Deol is the sort of guy who is above gossiping, and someone who takes himself seriously, you are mistaken.

Despite the type of roles and his brooding image, friends of the actor reveal that Abhay's a party animal and also loves to update himself on the gossip in B-town.

Whenever he's at a party, he makes sure he is kept abreast on what's happening in the industry. We hope that he manages to keep the gossip to himself and not pass it around.

Salman: 'Politically incorrect'

Salman Khan in a candid chat with TOI

You seem to drive interviews pretty much on your own track, with the interviewer being a bystander.
At home, when I give interviews, I make sure that I don't say anything that is rude or offensive; I run it according to what the sense of humour (acceptable) in the family is. They shouldn't get offended, shouldn't think yeh badtameez hai, I run it that way. My father could not whistle in front of his father. Today my father gives me the right to have a drink with him. These are the guidelines I follow in interviews or in other things.

And then there are questions on things – on a song that has nothing to do with me, because the song's lyrics go "Character Dheela Hai". There are questions on and on about marriage – nobody knows when they will be born, when they'll die, what will things be like tomorrow, but I'm expected to declare when I'll be married. These are just questions to egg people on... There are hazaar ways of making interesting interviews. You don't need to cheapen it.

This has been happening quite a bit with the "Character Dheela" song. I have no contribution to the song. The music director has made the song; I thought the lyrics were funny. Now, I have to make up things. I am asked – haan toh bataiye, iss industry mein kiska character dheela hai? Now, do you seriously think someone like me will ever comment on that?

In an earlier interview, you spoke of people egging you on like kids teasing a lion in a zoo, to get a reaction.
Yes, but I tell them, I will give you something for your promo anyway if you simply ask me. Don't need to ask silly stuff. I am not boring because I will say what I believe, I say things which are very politically incorrect – which is the most correct thing to do. The whole world would be knowing something and still pretending that it doesn't happen – that's all bull****. I'll be honest.

In some questions the degree of honesty has to be restricted because on TV or in a paper there's no "A" certificate. If everyone who read or saw what I had to say was my age group, thought like me, I'd give a completely honest reply to all questions. But there are kids following us. Eventually everyone's gonna grow up, but it's good for them not to grow up before their time.

This is the same argument you have used when you were angry at someone clicking you with a cigarette?
Yes, it happened in Delhi itself. I said, why do you want to glamourise it with a cool photo? It's the worst thing ever. Once you think it's cool and start it, it's the most difficult thing to quit. Everyone says cancer, cancer – but everyone keeps on smoking. You know, a friend said this to me – the guy who's given you your first cigarette, you always hate that person for the rest of your life. The guy, and it's always a senior guy, who said "oh, come on, come on, just have one" – at that point, to fit in, people start. And then, it's with them for the rest of their life.

Do you disagree with this?
No, not really.

Two years back, in an interview to DT, you said you get tired of the same questions, about why you are 'misunderstood' and how the media has decided that you're the 'bad boy, but with a heart of gold'. Has anything changed?
Nothing. Nothing. Now it is, "Character Dheela Hai". When are you getting married? Sometimes you feel sad for those asking. I don't mind them, I see it as a timepass thing. There is no meaning to this. It is the same as the baba and bhoot stories on channels. Everybody knows it is bull but they still watch it.

I heard from a cine source that for all the branding Salman has got because of the black buck case, the reality is that in a group of people, all of whom were equally involved – or equally not involved – one guy chooses to say, I'll carry it all on my head, you can walk off.
(Silence for a minute)
I don't know the jungle. I am from Bombay. If you put me in a forest, or if you even put me in a street in Mumbai itself – Kandivili, Dharavi, Virar, Kolaba – I may not know how to get back. You're expecting me to go 30-40 km in the middle of the jungle, in the middle of the night, driving a Gypsy, with a searchlight in my hand, without a driver, without anybody. While driving, find the animal, chase the animal, shoot the animal, put it back. So it's night, I'm driving with one hand, I'm holding the searchlight with the other, and I'm shooting with which hand?

I don't even know the route back to the hotel if I am in the middle of the jungle. There is nobody to ask at midnight. And, in the middle of the same forest, they have some 370 witnesses. Come on... And it's sub judice for me. And for others, whatever information they want to spread, they can spread, true, false, anything.

How come you haven't got mainstream political offers?
I've got offers, but I'm not interested. I am very keen to take Being Human to a different level. I've friends in various political parties whom I have known for the longest time. If I know 15-20 people and they are doing good for their people in their own constituencies - it's more than enough.

I've also gone to canvass for elections for people whom I have known. If a wrong person for a 5-year term, the people suffer hugely. Even if I could bring in one extra vote, it's a social thing for me. For me to leave my house, take planes all over the country, go and stand with them – when I could instead spend that day at work and make loads of money for myself - I must believe in the person. And I think a candidate should be made to sign a legal document to make him commit that he will actually do all the things he promises to do.

So you'd rather do your own stuff than enter the political field full-time?
Ya, my projects. From watches and t-shirts, now we're starting off pens...

What's the structure of Being Human? People know it's to do with you, but there's a grey area about charities...
See, it's a charitable trust, which is the Being Human charitable trust, which is totally separate. Then there are the watches, the profits that come in from them comes into that account, then after tax is paid, whatever is there goes into that specific trust.

So from each type of activity that I do under this – I plan to open Being Human cafes, for example... My appeal is, you in any case will buy a t-shirt or a watch, so why not buy this? Instead of the money going to one guy, it goes back into helping someone. You can buy something and do charity at the same time.

People have this impression that Salman ke paas bahut paisa hai so we don't get too many donations directly for the charitable trust right now. Friends and all come in and put in money. I have put in a lot of my own money into it.

Apart from the impression that you already have the money, what hassles are you facing?
Even before we launch properly, there are fakes out in the market! In the interiors, when I go for shooting, I find people wearing fakes. I feel the biggest kameena out there is the one who is doing something like this – the money which should go to a trust, he is keeping it, which is not his idea, not his product, nothing. I get so angry when I see people selling fake tees on the road, I want to stop the car, take my lighter, thwack the hell out of them and burn all the t-shirts. But then, I say, what the...

"Dabangg" rocked, you're the star of the moment. Did the industry stand by when things were not so rocking for you?
Everybody's got their own lives to go back to. Eventually, from where I see it, it's often all about the votes. This guy is so popular...If you've actually done something, you deserve to go inside. But if you've not done anything, then what is the thing?
Two people tearing posters or fifty people tearing posters is shown as if the whole country has gone against you. But what about all the other people who are in support, who are praying for you? That's not taken in account.

You'd said to us you'd buy an IPL team if it came up. A team did come up, but you didn't even bid?
I was not interested by then. I was selfishly thinking of it as a Being Human activity. But then I realized I wouldn't be able to handle that business model.
Sohail has picked up a team, the Celebs League. They play serious cricket.

Cricket apart, you had become the ambassador for football in India. Phir kuch suna nahi uske baare mein. What happened?
Nothing, I don't know. But I believe in the next 5-6 years, football is going to be a huge sport in our country.

Arre, if you're keen on it, how come nobody's utilizing your services to promote it?
Abhi cricket-cricket itna hai ki if you go football-football, it won't have that hype, it'll just be a waste. There has to be the right time to get into it. Like we have so many stars in cricket right now, we don't have any in football.

" Wanted", "Veer", "Dabangg", now " Ready"...
Cinema like this keeps you fit, rather than doing romantic comedies.
I never thought these characters would turn out to be superheroes. I never thought that a Radhey Mohan or a Veer or even a Chulbul Pandey would be the character it finally became...

The typical Salman entry anywhere, hands in pocket, that stride, the shades - even when you're not posing, just stepping out at the airport, the pictures scream "star". Acquired or natural?
That's the way I always walk, even when I was in school...!
Do people write roles for you, the current action hero?

Everybody, when he comes to you for a film, is not going to say that I had offered this film first to so-and-so and he refused to do it so I came to you. He'll come to you and say, this is a script written just for you, and if you don't agree, we won't make it. I've tried that, ok, so I won't do it. Now you won't make it? And they are like, arre, sir, picture toh banani hi padegi. Sab bolne ki baatein hai. We are family, we are friends...

Who are your friends?
My family are my friends first. Sanju and me don't meet very much but we're still very close. Aamir, Monish Behl. We don't meet for months and months, but when we do, we connect hugely.

Your friends in their 20s, your gang – how differently do you see them, how do they see you, now that you're this big?
You know, when people make it, they say I had this instinct, I had this intuition, it's all humbug. Things don't happen just because you're sure it will happen. Nobody knows what the future holds.

Did your friends then think you would get this far?
Nobody believed it. Nobody believed I was going to make it. But today, when you speak to them, it will all be – 'oh, we knew he worked so hard, he was so dedicated, we always knew...' But I remember the conversations of that time!

A lot of celebs seem to take to rather fancy models of stress management, breaks, and so on. You still sleep for just 3-4 hours a day?
Ya, that's the amount of sleep I get. And I don't understand this – people study or work their a** off to succeed, to become what they have to become, and when they make it, and suddenly they go, 'Oh, man, so much work, so much stress.' What is the other side of it? No work. How would you handle that stress? So if you're doing something you like, you shouldn't be stressed about that.

How has the body handled the stress and the ageing, from the day you first did that one-handed push-up on screen in " Maine Pyaar Kiya"?
I've done that again in "Ready". After "MPK" the first time I tried it was in "Ready", and I've done that in the movie.

How much effort does it take now?
A lot more; a lot more. You have a lot more energy in your twenties. You are more energetic, more agile. Now, every year, you're expected to compete with what you did one year earlier. That one year, very soon, for me has added up to twenty years – and I'm still expected to compete with that year, 20 years back. To do at 45 which you did at 25 is very difficult – but then, all the guys are managing it. There's Aamir, there's Shah Rukh, there's Akki, there's Sanju.

What's the industry's response to the Morani's name coming up in the 2G scam?
I've done a huge number of shows with them. In fact, all actors have done a lot of shows with them. They've been very good to everyone. If there is something, if there are documents or whatever, there should be an enquiry, and if they are innocent, their name should be cleared.

I've been to jail, Sanju's been to jail, many people in the industry have faced court cases, etc. Making money out of somebody's misery is the biggest profession right now. As soon as you are stuck, it just goes on, goes on. Even if you are innocent, people are scared to let you go. They say: If we let him go, the press will say they are big people, you must have taken money. Decisions about anyone should be made on facts, not under pressure.

You'd got some things installed in Jodhpur jail?
No, I wanted to do that, but I couldn't. I'd submitted details of what they needed, of what we could do. But they didn't want it. I offered to get solar heaters, to build bathrooms. Because I know the way people live inside. The human rights activists should go into jails to realize how people live inside.

And the tragedy is that I hear that in monsoons, poor people do petty crimes to be put in jail, because their life out of jail is worse, inside at least they have a roof and three meals a day. The conditions inside jails are the worst.

I'd even offered that people who are eligible for bail – for a bail amount of four, five thousand rupees, he can't afford it, so he is in jail – we could arrange those amounts. I asked, if the person is such a criminal, surely he can arrange that money? But he can't. And when we offer to, the argument is that, what if he he comes out and does something else? Arre!

This is the sort of thing I really want to do, but somewhere, I've not been able to pull it off. But there will be a time when I will do this, I will pull it off.

It's stayed on your mind.
Yes. I'm asked why do you want to do things only for jails? Why? Because I've been there. And while there are criminals, there are also a lot of innocent people in jails. There are guys who are in jail for 20, 30, 40 years, they don't know what to do if they come out! A jail official told me that 70% of the people behind bars are innocent. And the ones who are the real crooks – they say, we will go back and continue to do this, but why are these people in here, who have no idea what crime they committed? People are picked up as terrorists who have no idea what they are in for.

They should do a survey someday on how many people have given how many government officials – from judges to income-tax to police to others – how much amount of money. The masses do it to make their lives slightly easier, and now, the other side has got used to it.

Am assuming stuff about your relationships and your rivalries doesn't affect you – but when you speak on something like 26/11, and people begin to tear into you, surely that must be unnerving?
Yes, and all these things are raised at the time of the release. Obama came and he said the same things. Obama ko bhi jaa ke pakarte na. Who am I to give a clean chit to anybody, yaar? What I'd heard in the news, I was saying exactly that. If by me saying that I am sorry if I've hurt your sentiments, it helps, I will do it...
We live in India. Born, brought up, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents. We are facing terrorism here. People there are also facing it. I am talking about the common man. I'm not talking about the politicians. If the politicians had the capability to sort it out, they'd have sorted it out a long time ago. I am talking about common people working from morning to night to support their families.

Would you keep quiet on things that impacted you, worried that it may lead to another controversy?
No, if it matters to me, I will speak out. I think people who do adulteration of food and drink should be hanged, I feel very strongly about that. And I think the press should be more worried about such things than the great national issues of when is Salman Khan getting married, Salman and another actor don't get along, Salman has broken up with his girlfriend. These things people know

Rahul Bhatt's tell-all on Headley

Rahul Bhatt is writing a book. Now before you ask who Rahul Bhatt, perhaps the context of the book will help.

The younger Bhatt, who suddenly grabbed headlines for his association with dreaded terror-mastermind David Coleman Headley, is now in the process of putting this whole experience in a tell-all.

Entitled 'Inside Lashkar-e-Taiba: How I Befriended The World's Deadliest Terrorist', the book is touted to give a blow-by-blow account of Headley's growing fondness for the Bhatt boy. Little wonder then that Headley had confessed in his interrogation that he wanted to train Rahul to be an ISI agent.

"As I look back I wonder how I came close to this man without ever suspecting what he was really up to! So much has been said about what happened. I'm writing the whole sequence of events down so it would help me to understand the situation better," says the reticent Rahul.

The news itself has got Rahul "tempting offers" from three publishers. But he hasn't yet decided on anything. "It may be of great curiosity-value for others. But my experiences with Headley are not just a story for me. It is that part of my life which has forever determined my relationship with the outside world. I trusted and believed in Headley completely without knowing who he was and what his intentions were. Now I can never trust anyone I meet. I've become wary of human contact."

No wonder he's now spending all his time writing the book. Apparently the book will chronicle details about Rahul's interactions with Headley, that have yet not been revealed to the outside world. "I'm trying to piece together the entire period of my life when I knew him. While we interacted I never guessed what his intentions were. Headley kept saying he sees a reflection of himself in me. It was only later that I realised he was trying to create a replica of himself in me. In hindsight it is a very scary thought. I could've been completely destroyed by the experience."

And with a book coming, can a movie be far behind? Rahul Bhatt's book 'Inside Lashkar-e-Taiba: How I Befriended The World's Deadliest Terrorist' will also be the basis of the script that Rahul will write for a film where he'll play himself. Rahul wants his mentor Salman Khan to play Headley. Now, that would really be deadly
