Mr. Moon’s Scoops & Whoops!


Aamir Khan mysteriously bowing out of Salute… the numerologically sound date for Padmavati’s release… a 16-year-old marriage falling apart…and all the other highlights this week, exclusively on


Without any warning, Aamir Khan bowed out of Salute, the biopic on cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to fly into space. Now his role has apparently been offered by producer Siddharth Roy Kapur to Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.

Doing a Taylor Swift?

Adhyayan Suman’s debut music single was apparently a bittersweet memory of the tumultuous relationship he had with Bollywood temptress Kangana Ranaut. What, she’s still his claim to fame??

Intimacy Woes

In his first ever video interview, the understandably upset Dennis Nagpal spoke about how it felt watching his girl, Bandgi Kalra redefine romance in the arms of ‘Bigg Boss’ housemate Puneesh Sharma.

The long and the short of it…

Peeping exclusively learned that Aanand L Rai’s SRK-Kat-Anushka starrer will be called Bauaa. This is a term of endearment for a much loved person. Names like Bandhua, Katrina Meri Jaan and Batla are still doing the rounds for this flick which will see SRK playing a dwarf. Oh wait, don’t use that word - according to the director, SRK is just a short man in this December 2018 release. Whatever you say, boss!

Who’s a jolly good fellow?

…Neither! Amidst reports of Akshay Kumar and Arshad Warsi coming together to take on the baddies in Jolly LLB 3, we got you the truth – there is to be no such sequel as of now. The director claims he hasn’t even thought about the script yet!

Parting Shot

Kiran Karmarkar confirmed that he and wife Rinku Dhawan have separated after 16 years of marriage. “Divorce has not happened yet, but yes, there were some differences between us and so we decided to not stay together,” he said.

Roll out the carpet!

Returning to home shores, our very own Miss World 2017, Manushi Chhillar is expected to pay tribute to 26/11 victims. She will also be introduced to Bollywood – and will most likely be made irresistible offers then and there! We brought you her choc-a-block itinerary…

Epic Controversy

The Padmavati updates were constant…
Several Bollywood heroines signed a petition to be sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing their angst over the death threats that Deepika Padukone was facing over the film.

…And then the producer of the besieged film stopped the petition from going ahead, fearing a further backlash!

…An ominous note was struck with the body of a 40-year-old man found hanging from the outer walls of Nahargarh Fort, with the message “‘Padmavati’ ka virodh” – in protest against the film Padmavati. The matter is under investigation.

…With the film not keeping its release date of December 1, 2017, numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani advised, “Going by the science of numbers, I would like to tell the filmmakers that 12/1/2018 is the best possible date for the film’s release.” Just as long as it has a release, we say!

Bachcha Party!

Pics from inside li’l Aaradhya Bachchan’s ‘Enchanted Meadow’ birthday celebrations… AbRam’s delight over ‘buddhi ke baal’ which won Amitabh Bachchan’s heart, daddies Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan having a blast on the Ferris Wheel, and the birthday gal and her mommy in their princess frocks…wow!

Partying with Ed

Farah Khan’s star-studded bash for Ed Sheeran… Details from the all-nighter that had everyone from Shah Rukh and Katrina, to Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput, Abhishek Bachchan, showing the Brit sensation how to move his booty Bollywood style!

Law-breakers Inc.!

Varun Dhawan got pulled up by the traffic police for obliging a fan with a selfie at a traffic signal. His crime? Supposedly risking lives. An e-challan was also despatched promptly with the message, “Next time, we will be harsher.” What fate awaits Ranveer Singh, who launched a new store on Linking Road in Bandra by getting onto the roof of his car and bringing traffic to a standstill?!
