Known for his penchant for dark thrillers, director Sriram Raghavan is super-excited about his fast-paced spy film Agent Vinod, starring the currently-controversial Saif Ali Khan and his lady love, Kareena Kapoor

Iqbal Sharma’s wife Tarina is a Bollywood starlet!
The South African entrepreneur who got into the infamous brawl with the Agent Vinod actor says he doesn’t watch Hindi films and had no clue about Saif Ali Khan’s celebrity status. Amusing, coming from the man whose wife herself has been acting in Bollywood films

Salman Khan to Saif Ali Khan’s rescue in assault case
The hotel staff may not be on the Nawab’s side, but his morale if not his case gets a fillip as the Bodyguard Khan stands up for him
The news about Saif Ali Khan’s complaint losing ground is still trickling in, thanks to witnesses at the restaurant of the hotel where the fracas took place. An employee of the restaurant has reportedly said that Saif was the one who provoked and then punched Iqbal Sharma, and not the other way around. The Mumbai police have so far recorded statements by fifteen people, including waiters of the hotel and, according to them, prima facie there is a “strong case” against the actor.

Saif Ali Khan: I never use negative publicity for my films
The actor was caught in a brawl recently says it was not put a stunt for his film Agent Vinod
A day after being embroiled in a police case following a scuffle with an NRI businessman from South Africa, actor Saif Ali Khan has publicly said sorry for the incident. He also clarifies that the incident has nothing to do with the promotion of his forthcoming film Agent Vinod. “Whatever I had to say, I had cleared yesterday. It shouldn’t have happened. It was an unfortunate incident. In a way I would like to say sorry for whatever happened,” Saif told reporters at a press conference in Mumbai on Thursday. Click here to read more
Saif Ali Khan’s counter complaint doesn’t stand
The Saif Ali Khan punchgate gets a new twist as the cops say that his counter complaint against Iqbal Sharma doesn’t hold good as there is no medical proof for the same. In his complaint, late last night, Saif alleged that Mr Sharma’s father-in-law punched him first and abused the women who had accompanied him at the restaurant. He further alleged that his eye was swollen after he was punched. Owing to the lack of medical certificate, the Nawab’s complaint doesn’t stand any ground. Saif is now banking on the CCTV footage, which is probably the only way he can prove his innocence. The Agent Vinod actor is asking people not to form an opinion against him, just because he is a celebrity. He has repeatedly said that he was just trying to defend himself. Do you believe Saif’s version?

The press meet was held to announce the strategic alliance with World Series Hockey, but the only thing everyone was interested in knowing was, what exactly happened at the restaurant at the Taj hotel and who exactly was guilty.

The award for the best repartee on Saif Ali Khan’s brawl goes to…
The cyber world has been taken over by an urge to punch in a quip or two about the Nawab’s violent streak, but we found something which takes the cake, baker and the entire bakery!

The stand-up comics have taken on the unfortunate brawl between Saif and a guest at the hotel as a source for new material and have been going all out at it since the news broke. Some digs were good, some average and many were outright nasty and uncalled for. Click here to read more
