Raj Santoshi is a very happy man.

Belying all rumours of a fall-out with Ajay Devgan Raj Santoshi is all set to make another film with his favourite actor.”

We’re just about to zero- in on the subject. It’s a contemporary film, not the two period films on Emperor Ashok and the Ramayan that we were planning to do together. Those are on hold right now.

For now Ajay and I getting ready for another film, though I’ll definitely make Ramayan and Ashok with him. But we haven’t fallen out just because a couple of our films together haven’t clicked. That’s not how we work.”

For now Raj is on another trip. “I’m finally starting Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani with Ranbir and Katrina from tomorrow (Wednesday). It’s my first love story, though people seem to think it’s an intense love story. Which it is not. It has lots of very light very humorous moments. I haven’t worked with Ranbir and Katrina before. So I’m really looking forward to that.”

Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is to be shot in Mumbai (from tom) then Goa and finally Italy.”A lot of elements in Ranbir’s character will remind people of his grandfather Raj Kapoor. I’ve worked with Ranbir’s father in Damini. When I saw the boy in Saawariya I wanted to work with him immediately. Katrina and I were supposed to do a film that had Shahid in it. That didn’t work out. This is a totally different subject.”

Ask the director about Ranbir’s reported remuneration of Rs 7 crores, and Raj shrugs. “That’s between Ranbir and the producers Tips.”

Oh one more thing. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani also stars Upen Patel.”

It’s a pivotal role. Upen expressed a desire to work with me. We met up. When I narrated the subject he fell in love with it. I’m working with an entirely new team including music composer Pritam.

At first Kajol and Ajay was disallowed for the music premiere event, becuse the director does not want Kajol And AJay to have the limelight, but sources have mentioned that despite all that KAJOL has agreed to feature as a cameo appearnce in Haal E Dil.
Our source said, “Ajay and Kajol are extremely close to Mangat and Haal-e-Dil is Mangat’s daughter, Amita’s debut film. So, when he requested Kajol to play a cameo in the film, she immediately agreed.”It’s a known fact that Kajol only works with established banners like Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions, and is usually extremely selective about her roles. In Haal-e-Dil , she will play a small, but vital role.

The Phoonk De habit is passé with many Bollywood stars who have begun to put their health before their nicotine addiction.

We don’t know how much of it actually is the Ramadoss effect, but the fact is that actors and directors from Bollywood have genuinely begun to say no to smoking.

The first one to kick the cancer stick was Saif Ali Khan , who did not quit smoking so much out of will as out of sheer compulsion of maintaining his health after a minor heart attack last year. Saif was hospitalized for a few days and vowed never to touch cigarettes again. However, of late, he has forgotten his vow and has begun lighting up on rare occasions.

Ajay Devgan has been a heavy smoker for many years and he never even pretended to quit cigarettes. So heavily was the actor into addiction that it had actually begun to make his body and face look frail. Ajay’s body gave him an alarming jolt a few weeks back when he fell ill and finally decided to mend his ways and kick the butt. The actor is now looking forward to recovering his health.

Aamir Khan , who has struggled with his nicotine addiction for years, shocked many of his fans late last year when he disclosed on his blog that he had resumed smoking heavily after a long hiatus due to nervousness before the release of Taare Zameen Par . Aamir also made a New Year resolution to kick the habit from Jan 1, 2008. However, he failed to do so, but finally managed to live up to his promise after a few weeks. Since then, the actor is not learnt to have resumed smoking.

Despite so many real-life examples, one man who refuses to stub the carcinogenic stick is Shahrukh Khan , who surprisingly continues to remain hale and hearty despite his habit. And when asked by the health minister to quit smoking, SRK has responded back by saying that he doesn’t like to be told what to do.

Ajay Devgan’s brother Anil Devgan has directed ‘Haal-e-Dil’, and Ajay’s secretary-turned-Producer Kumar Mangat’s daughter Amita makes her debut in the movie. Considering the great rapport that the Devgans share with Kumar Mangat, on would have expcted to see Ajay and Kajol be the guest of honor at the music launch event of the movie, which was initially on the cards as well, but however there was a last minute change to the plan initiated by Kumar.

Based on sources close to the production, Kumar visited Kajol and Ajay’s bungalow at Juhu a couple of hours prior to the event and asked the star couple if they would be fine with not being a part of the event; explaining his point of view Kumar expressed that the presence of big stars like Ajay and Kajol at the event might potentially overshadow the debutantes especially when it’s their first opportunity to present themselves in front of the media.
In his very convincing explanation to the Devgans, Mangat shared the example of Jackie Chan and Mallika Sherawat, who outshined Kamal Hassan at the recent ‘Dasvaratham’ audio launch in Chennai.

Apparently, the latest in her kitty is Ajay Devgan’s second directorial venture which he’s going to announce very soon. The actor-turned-director whose U, Me aur Hum with wife Kajol generated a mixed response from the audience, is reportedly all set to direct another film and this time, he has opted for Kareena instead of Kajol.

“Ajay and Kareena’s jodi was a hit in Omkara. Distributors want to cash in on their chemistry. Ajay, too, wants to recreate that magic with his second directorial venture,” says an insider.

The two are also starring in Golmaal Returns. And that’s not all. If the industry is abuzz with Bebo doing Ajay’s film, then there’s yet another story that’s creating ripples. It’s rumoured that Kareena has stepped into Kajol’s shoes yet again. “She is being considered for Shah Rukh Khan’s much awaited film, My Name is Khan,” says the source.

Now that is not the only variable in this twisted tale… the only person to gain out of Kajol’s predicament is current Bollywood favourite Kareena Kapoor, as Karan Johar has made it clear that if Kajol doesn’t sign up for his film opposite Shah Rukh Khan, then he will take on Kareena. And only yesterday Ajay Devgan said the same in not so many words… Ajay has said that he would prefer to direct Kareena in his next.

The movie is called Mehbooba. It stars Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala. This movie supposedly was supposed to be released circe 2002.

Man, that was six years ago.

Guess a stinker will never see the light of day…But alas, this movie is coming into theatres near you this year.

Watch Ajay and Sanjay look reasonably younger and look at how Manisha is still a old hag then.
