Guess who's getting tips from Shah Rukh Khan lately?

Zayed KhanOn the sets of Main Hoon Naa, Zayed Khan got dollops of help from SRK. The latter is going out of his way to help the Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne star.

Director Farah Khan who has signed him on for her directorial debut Main Hoon Naa says, "He is as different from SRK as chalk and cheese. That's what I needed for my film. Once this film is released, everybody will sit and take note of this boy!"

From posing to clicking!

Model Ranjeev Mulchandani, better known as Aishwarya Rai's former boyfriend, makes an entry in Bollywood in a rather unconventional manner.

Aishwarya RaiCurrently a deejay settled in Goa, Mulchandani is clicking photo stills of Farhan Akhtar's Lakshya (Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta) in Ladakh. He has been there for a month.

Buzz is that the pictures are so good they may even turn it into a book.

"There is only one take and nothing can help you, if you flub it. You have to be more alert and with it." Her character in the film, which is due for an August release, is glamorous and modern.

Bhumika Puri"All five boys woo me. That would be a dream come true for anyone, " she laughs.

Bhumika says she fell in love with her role, "When I got the script, I just kept reading it till the last page. The role was so interesting."

What made the producer sign her over a bevy of beauties according to her, was the "the attitude I walked in with." 

But Bhumika loves emotional death scenes. "I can cry without any glycerine," she adds.

Milap's new beat

The man to benefit most with the response to Sanjay Gupta's Kaante and Sujoy Ghosh's Jhankaar Beats is writer Milap Zaveri. The 23-year-old penned the dialogues for the above mentioned films.

Juhi Chawla and Sanjay Suri in Jhankaar BeatsZaveri has eight films on hand, including Pritish Nandy Communication's Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam and Ramesh Sippy's next.

Zaveri is also venturing into writing screenplay and story besides dialogues. "They both have their own structure and merits. But the screenplay is the soul of the film." 

The young writer enjoys scripting romance and comedy and plans to turn director soon.
