Time to get hitched!!!
Imran Khan and Avantika cannot wait to tie the knot. The
two got engaged in January this year and if buzz is to be
believed, they are now set to get married in January 2011.
If all goes well, Imran and Avantika are planning an
extraordinary wedding in Thailand. The ceremony will
reportedly take place sometime in January, and the venue
would be a palatial resort that will also house the guests
who will fly from Mumbai and elsewhere for the grand
From what we hear, Imran is hoping to keep himself free for
a month or more to be able to fully commit to the marriage
and the honeymoon that will follow. He has even requested
Karan Johar to shift the dates for the film Short Term
Shaadi so that he could have his own shaadi (not short term,
we hope) or nikaah without any hitch.
|What did Rajinikanth tell Nayantara?
Whenever Nayantara faces trouble, Rajinikanth never fails to
give her advice. When Nayantara broke up with Simbu, the
media went to town covering pages about the broken romance.
That time, Nayantara was acting with Rajinikanth in
Chandramukhi. Seeing the saddened girl Rajinikanth often
consoled her as well as advised her. Now that Nayantara is
again in trouble for her new romance, Rajinikanth has again
offered his advice to her.
Nayantara recently shot for an ad at Kelambakkam.
Rajinikanth was in a hall nearby, giving an interview about
Endhiran to Sun TV. On hearing of this, Nayantara met him.
He told Nayantara that he had heard of her love for Prabhu
Deva through the media, advised her not to hurt Prabhu
Deva’s wife Ramalath and finally wished her all the best!
