Ayushmann stumbles in front of Deepika Padukone!

VJ, actor Ayushmann Khurrana is living his dream literally. As a collegian, he played cricket at a competitive level and even tried his hands at Ranji Trophy but destiny had other things in store for him. He stepped foot into the glamour world but always carried cricket up his sleeves.

Buzz up!
Life has been kind to Khurrana and while he couldn’t play the game, the VJ gets to be a roving reporter at the Indian Premier League 3. Ayushmann has been traveling from venue to another, sweating it out in temperatures in excess of 40 Celsius. However, as he puts it, ‘it’s worth the effort.’

“For me it’s been like a one hell of a ride getting close to the world’s best cricketers. You’re travelling overnight with no sleep only to land in another hot venue but there are no complaints. The atmosphere is such it makes you forget all ills,” said Khurrana

For those who’ve watched Khurrana keenly, it’s apparent that the VJ has been a bit of mixed bag on the cricket field. On occasions, he’s been good while sometimes, Khurrana simply doesn’t know what’s coming out of his mouth. A couple of days back, Khurrana seemed all lost while speaking to Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone and Siddharth Mallya.

“Honestly speaking, I’d like to forget about that Deepika interaction. God knows what happened to me then. Live interactions straight after the match are never easy. Though, we’re connected through a mic, at times you really don’t know what to ask.”

One has observed that Ayushmman tends to be comfortable with Harsha Bhogle. The Chandigarh lad doesn’t hesitate in agreeing to it.“Harsha is a gem of a person. He can sense that you’re jittery and then he takes charge of the situation enabling you to soothe your nerves. I’m so touched by his humility. He keeps encouraging me to take to the commentary box but somehow, I don’t think I’m made for it. I’m happy being a roving reporter,” Khurrana sighed.

One man who the roving reporter can’t stop praising is Daredevils wicket-keeper and Vice-captain Dinesh Kaarthick. Khurrana says, “He’s perhaps, the only cricketer who gets very friendly with us. He carries his diary and updates it daily. I was really surprised when he showed me his diary. He’s been writing it since 2006. Here, you’ll find all his good and bad moments on and off the field. Dinesh is such a professional that he avoids distractions. Yesterday, his team lost and while quite a few of his colleagues were there at the party, Dinesh chose to skip it as he was upset about Delhi’s loss.”

Lageraho Ayushmann bhai! Unravel more secrets of our elusive cricketers.

Sonam Kapoor is dating her director Punit Malhotra

Manish Malhotra's nephew- Punit Malhotra is Sonam Kapoor's latest squeeze. Though the dainty lass is paired opposite Imran Khan in Dharma Productions' 'I Hate Luv Storys' but she developed a liking her director on the sets of the film.

The two became serious during the New Zealand schedule. They used to go out for dinner together and enjoyed each other's company.

According to a source, "Punit was constantly taking Sonam's photos and telling her how gorgeous she looked. Whenever they weren't shooting, the two would go out and try new places for dinner. In fact, Sonam even told her sister Rhea about Punit."

However their public display of affection didn't go down well with Mama Manish Malhotra and producer Karan Johar who told Punit to "concentrate only on his work".

The crew of the film is also aware of the closeness between Sonam and Punit. A source adds, "The relationship is rather new, and at this early stage, tiffs are normal. In fact, Imran keeps teasing her about it all the time."

Punit has earlier worked assistant director in Paheli (2005), starring Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukerji; and Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), starring Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta. Not surprisingly, Manish Malhotra will design the costumes for the film.

I Hate Love Stories is said to be a film about a film director, Sammir and his assistant director and production designer played by Imran and Sonam.
