Now for some oven-fresh news.

Ashutosh Gowariker's SWADES, starring Shah Rukh Khan, will be released in August/September this year, not June.

“We're through with 80% shooting at the moment,” Ashutosh informs me, before flying off for a 10-day shoot to U.S.A.

Rajkumar Hirani is working on two scripts simultaneously. The first to roll is MUNNABHAI L.L.B. for the same producer [Vidhu Vinod Chopra] and starring the same cast [Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani], Hirani enlightens me. That should silence all those who feel that the idea of making the sequel was a publicity ploy.

Om Puri is signing films, left, right and center. The latest is that the veteran has replaced Anupam Kher in STOP, being directed by Ajai Sinha. Indiafm
