Gossips Popular in India…

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

In this post, I would be writing about some gossips popular in India from decades. We all know gossip is the idle talk or a rumor, so please no offence. These are the gossips which everyone in India wants to read and talk.

1) Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, and Lady Edwina Mountbatten-A lot have been talked about the close friendship between Lady Mountbatten and Nehru. Both of them had a tender and an emotional attachment. Mountbatten’s daughter Pamela also wrote about Nehru’s relationship with her mother in her memoir “India Remembered”. Richard Hough’s biography “Mountbatten: Hero of Our Times” also talks about this affair.

2 )Lady Diana –Priness of Wales always dreamt of marriage that would be happy lasting marriage.But unfortunately her dreams were shattered when her husband Charles returned to his long time mistress Camilla. Her loneliness made her attracted towards her body guard Barry Mannakee.But this attraction did not last long , he got fired from Charless and later died in motorbike accident.Then came James Hewitt,riding instructor in her life.But that relationship also ended in a disappointment when he published about their affair in the book ‘Prinecss in Love’.Then another rumor of Lady Diana’s liking for the heart surgeon Hasnat Khan,but this was also short lived.After sometime her affair started with Dodo Al Fayed.Both of them showed their love in public and gave a great sensation to press.Unfortunately,this love affair ended in a tragedy on the roads of Paris.

3 )Amitabh Bacchaan and Rekha -The sizzling affair between 'Superstar of the Millennium' Amitabh Bachchan and the Bollywood's eternal temptress Rekha remains unparalleled.
The offscreen chemistry between the two was very evident on screen. Their love story began on the sets of 'Do Anjaane' - the second film that they did together. The pair provided hit after hit together - 'Khoon Pasina', 'Ganga Ki Saugandh', 'Suhaag','Muqaddar Ka Sikandar', 'Ram Balram' and 'Mr. Natwarlal'amongst others. The on-screen chemistry generated in the many films they made together, led many to suspect that there was a real life romance happening.Both the super stars have never spoken about their intimate friendship ever in public.

4 ) Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky –President of America, Bill Clinton and his intimate relationship with with young and beautiful Monica Lewinsky has been the talk of the town always. Clinton's impeachment was acquitted after a lengthy senate trial. The sexual scandal excited the world's media and made Monica Lewinski into a minor celebrity that was famous for being famous. Clinton was found to have lied about his sexual relations with Lewinski. Bill Clinton was charged with perjury or lying under oath about his sexual relations with the 22 year old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky to gain advantage in a sexual harassment case brought by Paula Jones, a case he later settled by paying Paula Jones $850,000. A Federal judge found Bill Clinton also to be in contempt of court for lying in a deposition and ordered him to pay a $90,000 fine. This contempt citation led to disbarment proceedings similar to Richard Nixon's. To avoid these proceedings, Clinton surrendered his law license. Later Clinton’s wife forgave his husband and he remained a married couple.

5 ) Ashiwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan- Abhishek the son of the superstar Amitabh Bachchan is married to former Miss World Ashiwarya Rai.This couple is the most talked about couple not only in India but internationally.Before marriage Ashiwarya ‘s relations with bollywood actors Salman Khan,Vivek Oberio were the discussed. Their wedding was a private affair intended for the Bachchan and Rai family and friends, the involvement of the media made it a national extravaganza. Abhishek is 2 years younger than his wife. After marriage their has been number of rumors about Ashiwarys on the way to motherhood. Bachchans’ have being denying these rumors.This fact remains unchanged that when there is news in the media about this young couple, readers just love to read it.

6) Ambani Brothers- The two sons of Dhirajlal Hirachand Ambani, Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani and the suuccessors of the Reliance empire.
The fact that differences continued to simmer was evident by the approach of the two brothers after mid-2003, when Anil was reported to have admitted to the presence of 'constructive tensions' between the two. There furious battle for the Reliance empire was the part of top stories in media. Everyone wanted to know how this battle would settle between brothers. The Reliance empire was divided between both the brothers but their confrontation on various issue erupt from time to time. Media adds some spices to the story and gives it to the public.

7 ) Rajkapoor and Nargis – The superstars and the romantic pair of Bollywood has still imprints on the mind of their fans. Nargis was romantically linked with Raj Kapoor whom she was casted in most of her films. Off-screen, her affair with the already married Raj Kapoor was a matching of soul and spirit. Nargis was finest artistic asset he had under his RK Films banner. This became clear after the two broke up around 1957. Nargis went on to make Mother India that year, considered by many to be the zenith of her career. In contrast, not a single film of note came out of RK Studios after Nargis left. Later in 1960’s RK Flims offered Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai which was a complete shift of Raj Kapoor’s cinema approach.

Nice blog and some philosophy to ponder about.
"Har kissi ko mukkammal jahan nahin milta,
Kissi ko zameen-kissi ko aasmaan nahin milta'
Falak pe sitare to bahut hain magar,
Kissi ko chaand - kissi to tara nahin milta".
Almighty has balanced everyone's balance sheet in such a manner that there is always something missing in everyone's life. A rose plant of any colour always has thorns. Had Raj Kapoor got Nargis he would have been on cloud Nine.
Rekha is beautiful, gracious, wealthy - but marriage is not in her portfolio.
The rumour with AB was an advt. gimmick (HT centre page coln.) to mint money from Silsila.
A very nice post Meghna.
