Aamir Scores Over Imran

Kareena Kapoor, who is teaming up with Aamir Khan and his nephew Imran Khan in two separate films respectively, was in a super tricky spot. 

The first schedule of her film with Aamir, Reema Kagti's untitled project, was found to be clashing with the second schedule of her film Short Term Shaadi with Imran that is being made by her close friend Karan Johar. But Kareena simply had to find time for Aamir, as she couldn't let this film go — not after audiences hailed their chemistry in the blockbuster 3 Idiots. 

TOI has learned that Kareena picked up the phone and asked Karan to be her saviour. She asked the numero one filmmaker if he could rework her dates with Imran so that she could give those dates to Aamir instead. Ever the gentleman, Karan obliged. So now Aamir's first schedule with Kareena will roll ahead of Imran's second schedule with the actress. 

Bollywood's heavyweight mamu has pipped his bhanja. Bollywood sources say Karan would not have done this for any other actor. Also, he shares a special equation with Kareena. All is well. And not even Imran is sulking.

Priyanka-Shahid Break Ke Baad!

They remain one of Bollywood's biggest mysteries. Were Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor dating? Bollywood says yes, of course, but the stars themselves never accepted the situation and screamed their single status from the rooftops. 

Though when the fever was reportedly at its pitch, Priyanka and Shahid sizzled in Kaminey, and the world which always loves a pair of lovers, sighed in satisfaction at this new jodi. For the media, of course, this was all grist to the mill... and from every sighting of the couple to their recent alleged break-up, it all made news. Now comes the twist in the tale. 

Enter Kunal Kohli, with a script for which he has signed Shahid and now wants Priyanka. Not so long ago he was miffed with Priyanka because her hectic schedule didn't give her dates to do his film with Saif Ali Khan. But Kunal is ready to forget the past. He is meeting Priyanka to talk about his film that will bring Shahid and her back onscreen. The filmmaker will also approach three other actresses because his film has two female leads playing pivotal roles. Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha and Deepika Padukone are on top of the list. 

But will Priyanka agree, given that she is sick of people always talking about her equation with Shahid and ignoring her work? And that every story about her somehow brings Shahid into the picture? 

There will be curiosity to see the actors working together again. Plus the movie is a love story so one can imagine the chemistry that will be on offer in case the two team up. Kunal, however, remained tight-lipped. "It is true that Shahid has been signed on. It is a love story spanning a 100 years. I cannot comment on the actresses as we haven't started casting yet," is all he said. Shahid told BT, "I have enjoyed Kunal's works in the past whether it's Hum Tum or Fanaa and I'm looking forward to this love story. Whoever he decides to be cast opposite me, I'm okay with it."

Hrishant Goswami evicted from Bigg Boss

However, not many will deny that post Dolly's exit last week, the show has gone very quiet. Her behaviour on screen was crass but her volume directly proportionate to the show TRPs: with one the other rose automatically.

But Bigg Boss loyalists may soon be in for a shock. Dolly is most likely to return to the Bigg Boss house on Saturday and this is supposed to be a big surprise for the contestants.

Of the five people nominated, Hrishant Goswami will be asked to pack his bags.

There's not much drama in the Bigg Boss house with Dolly having been shown the door. However, it's Friday, the day of eviction, and five people – Sameer Soni, Shweta Tiwari, Ashmit Patel, Veena Malik and Hrishant Goswami – have been nominated to go from the house. 

We hear it's Hrishant Goswami who is going to be asked to pack his bags tonight. One less person means that much less drama. But on Saturday, the entry of Dolly Bindra is going to spice up the Bigg Boss house all over again.

Our source said, "Dolly Bindra was the lifeline of the show. Ever since she came on the show as the wild card entry, she made life miserable for the contestants, especially Shweta Tiwari.

Let's wait and watch for the drama to unfold as Hrishant leaves and Dolly enters.

Diwali is a festival of celebrating the blessings bestowed on us by Goddess Lakshmi and Diwali Puja is a way of commemorating the Goddess. Well Diwali is also celebrated for many other mythological reasons like the coming of Lord Ram to Ayodhya along with Sita and Lakshman. Whatever may be the reason for celebrating Diwali but the Diwali Puja is regarded to be a perfect way of thanking the Gods especially Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha for all the peace, prosperity and blessings showered by them on us and the mention of the Diwali puja can be found in the history of Diwali also.

The general things required for Diwali Puja are uncooked rice, paan leaves, kumkum, sweets, camphor, dry fruits and idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha. The Puja is performed in the evening when hundreds of diyas are lighted to illuminate the evening. The diwali puja is then followed by presenting each other with ideal Diwali gifts, offering delicious Diwali sweets to the guests, presenting beautiful Diwali cards to the loved ones and greeting each other with nicest Diwali greetings. The process of Diwali Puja is further divided into different pujas in the honor of different Gods like Ganesh Puja, Lakshmi Puja, Kali Puja and Diwali Aarti. 

Recognizing the importance of Diwali Puja amidst the celebrations of Diwali we have come up with a proper section of Diwali Puja under which we have discussed and have given information regarding the different pujas to be performed at the time of Diwali.
