Desi Boyz completes London schedule

Film Desi Boyz which has the ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Chintrangada Singh and Omi Vaidya has completed its forty day schedule in London.

Akshay happy with the outcome of the film and the way Rohit Dhawan [son of director David Dhawan] shot it threw a lavish party to celebrate the completion of films schedule in London. The party took place at London’s one of the famous exclusive restaurant/ lounge-bar, Nobu last night.

Everyone from spot boy to the technical department of Desi Boyz was invited by Akshay Kumar and were taken care of by the Hera Pheri star.

Usually it is the producers who are associated with throwing bashes but off late the trend is changing; Amitabh Bachchan threw a bash to celebrate Aarakshan’s completion and as was the case with Imran Khan who did to his unit of Short Term Shaadi.

Apart from the films cast and crew the wrap-up party also witnessed Akshay’s good pals Farah Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala attending it. The party coincided with their work in London.

With actors throwing bashes producers will be certainly happy. A welcome trend.

When Deepika said No to 4 crores

Deepika Padukone who is currently in London for the shoot of  Rohit Dhawan’s first directorial venture Desi Boyz has apparently turned down an offer which promised her to pay Rs 4 crores.

The news goes like this, Ms Padukone was asked by a big shot family in London to perform for the iconic song that she enacted in Dum Maro Dum [DMD]. The offer was also specific as the concerned Punjabi family over here asked her to do the DMD number only. Though regulations like wearing the same attire that she sported in the song for the performance came inn, the actress politely refused to do it by citing that she won’t be performing for private events.

“As a result the family got disappointed as they already booked the club for her performance”, said a source.

This is not the first time that the Om Shanti Om actress rejected such private offers when her industry colleagues such as Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif, Mallika Sherawat etc have done such acts many a times.

On the whole we can say one thing that Dee has her own reservations when it comes to performing for such shows. Cool Dee.
