Mumbai, Aug 21: “Zilla Ghaziabad” director Anand Kumar has been blessed with a baby boy on Eid and he has named him Tiger. He says that his son’s name is inspired by the success of Salman Khan’s “Ek Tha Tiger”.
“Salman bhai is synonym of Eid. Every year he gives us such great films on this festival and this year too he took our hearts away with blockbuster film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. When I got this very special gift on the auspicious occasion of Eid (Monday), I decided to give the name Tiger to my newborn son,” Kumar said in a statement.
Salman’s Eid releases – “Wanted” and “Dabangg” – have been blockbusters.
Kumar has earlier directed films like “Delhi Heights” and “Jugaad”. His “Zilla Ghaziabad” features Sanjay Dutt and Vivek Oberoi.
For Hema, Dharmendra is Bollywood’s ‘original’ dancer
Dharmendra has two left feet, but for his danseuse and actress wife Hema Malini, he is the ‘original’ dancer of the Hindi film industry.
The duo came together on the sets of singing reality show “Indian Idol 6″.
When Amit, a contestant, crooned Dharmendra’s evergreen song “Main jat yamla pagla deewana”, Hema went down memory lane.
She revealed that when she first saw Dharmendra while shooting for this particular song in Nasik and performing his signature “Yamla pagla” step, she fell for him.
The 63-year-old actress also said Dharmendra is the “original” dancer of Bollywood and everybody else just copies his style, said a source from the sets.
