It’s a Friday in Bollywood! Ek Villain releases today, and we know it’s a big one – the buzz surrounding it is great (they went all-out with promotions, after all), and going by early figures, the opening has been huge. Team MissMalini caught the film as well, so stay tuned today for our review of the film.
In fact, a special screening was held yesterday, and the lovely Genelia Deshmukh posed for photos next to her husband, Riteish Deshmukh, in the poster:
In other news, Preity Zinta‘s neighbour has come forth to say that he saw bruises on her arm on May 31st, a day after the alleged Wankhede showdown between her and Ness Wadia. Her neighbour, Danish Merchant, is apparently one of the four key witnesses and has already given his statement to the police.
There also seems to be an update in the Salman Khan hit-and-run case from all those years ago. According to the prosecution, Salman spent some time drinking at Rain Bar during that night back in 2002. However, the manager of the bar has claimed that he is unsure as to whether Salman consumed any drinks himself, as the glass he was holding had a “colourless liquid like water.” He also said that when he escorted him to the door, the actor did not smell of alcohol and he was walking straight.
In better news, everyone’s favourite bauji has joined Twitter! Alok Nath registered on the social networking site yesterday, and released a statement saying, “I’m excited to join Twitter since people have popularised my character on it and I’m happy to now finally share the real Alok Nath with the world. It feels like there was a party thrown in my honour and I didn’t attend. So I’m attending now, fashionably later than never and I’m looking forward to engaging with my fans and friends in real-time.”
Go forth and take your blessings, Twitter folk, and make sure you stay tuned to MissMalini all day for more Bollywood news stories!
