ایک شخص نے نمازیوں کے جوتے چرانے کا ایک عجیب طریقہ نکالا، وہ یہ کہ تیتر کا پنجرہ لے کر مسجد میں چلے جاتے تھے۔ اس پنجرہ پر پردہ پڑا رہتا تھا جہاں کوئی اچھا سا جوتا دیکھا وہیں پنجرہ رکھ دیا اور نماز میں شریک ہوگئے جب سجدہ میں پہنچے تو جوتہ چپکے سے پنجرہ میں رکھ دیا، سر سجدہ میں اور جوتہ پنجرہ میں بہت دن تک گاڑی چلتی رہی جب کثرت سے جوتے چوری ہونے لگے تو لوگوں کو تفتیش حال کا فکر ہوا۔ آخر کسی نے تاڑ ہی لیا، اُٹھایا جو کپڑا اوپر سے پنجرہ کا تو چرائے ہوئے جوتے ظاہر ہوگئے اب تک جناب عالی نمازیوں کے بھیس میں چور بنے ہوئے تھے۔ چوری پکڑی گئی تو پڑا پڑجوتے پڑنے لگے۔
LAHORE: Former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik is engaged to Indian Tennis Star Sania Mirza and the two will soon be tying the knot, leading television channels in India and Pakistan reported on Monday.
While reports about the engagement started doing rounds since early evening, Sania’s father Imran Mirza, a former sports journalist, confirmed the news to a leading Indian channel, Aaj Tak, while speaking from Hyderabad Deccan later in the evening.
A few channels also quoted Sania’s agents as confirming the development, which took many by surprise. According to the channel, Shoaib’s mother met Sania’s parents in India and sought their consent for making Sania her daughter-in-law.
In Sialkot, Malik’s family sources confirmed the news and disclosed that date for the wedding would be decided in the first week of April. The valima reception is likely to be held in Lahore in mid-April.
Malik, serving a one-year ban imposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board, is currently in Sharjah for the Bangladesh League.
The all-rounder was also in the news for similar reasons during Pakistan cricket team’s tour to India in 2005. He was then accused of ditching another Indian girl, Ayesha Siddiqui, who coincidentally belonged to Hyderabad. The two had met through Internet and got married. Ayesha’s father had also threatened to sue Malik for jilting the girl. Malik later denied having any relations whatsoever with her.
Sania Mirza, on the other hand, had also hit the headlines last year after she called off her engagement with an Indian businessman and friend, Mohammad Sohrab Mirza.
Reliable sources told Dawn that Malik’s involvement with Sania had a hand in the break up of her first engagement. In a recent interview, Malik had said: “I desire to get married soon. You will soon get some good news but it depends on my family. I expect to get married this year.”
Asked if it would be an arranged marriage, he said: “No one can say what will happen, but it will take place with the consent of my family.”
Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has hiked her price like never before. If Kareena Kapoor is available for Rs 7 crore than the Bachchan Bahurani is available for Rs 10 crore. Yes this is the price been presented to Aishwarya by producer Bobby Pushkarna of Page 3 fame.
Bobby wants to make a film semblance to Jag Mundhra’s forced and wanted to cast only Ash. He wanted Aishwarya at any cost and so did not think twice to offer her the huge amount.
The filmmaker has been chasing Ash for the last few years and finally got to interact with her and discuss the film. It is known that Ash is going though the script.
News is also doing the rounds that if Ash declines that offer than the film would never see the light of the day. It would be shelved.
The April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, upon which she graces the cover, features music superstar Lady Gaga recounting an old boyfriend who doubted her.
One she's not divergent to rubbing her success in the face of now.
"I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be designated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail," the singer recounts.
Gaga adds, "I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee at the f**king deli without hearing or seeing me.'"
Some might call that quote arrogant, but it's hard to blame her for relishing that just a bit, given how hard she worked to succeed, and then stay at the top.
GaGa Ooh La La
Someone dared to doubt this.
She also says she "ate sh*t for so long" trying to make it in music and "I've always been delusional determined to the point where people don't understand me."
Hopefully Matthew Williams, her current beau, is not one of those people. He's worked with her for so long, we imagine they click professionally and personally.
Also noteworthy is the conservative lingerie she wears on the Cosmo cover.
After all, we're talking about a girl with crazy, avant garde style, who wears hair phones, masks, bulges in her pants and ...
Lady Gaga can definitely pull of a variety of bizarre and regular style choices. We expect her to show likewise flexibility and prolonged existence in the world of music, too.

A good singer and a terrific dancer, Hrithik Roshan now has his finger in another pie. He’s turned singer for his papa’s production Kites in which he pairs up with Mexican hottie Barbara Mori.
From what we learn, the film’s director Anurag Basu heard Hrithik singing in a jam session after dinner one evening. Convinced that Hrithik would be able to croon a song, Basu prodded him to record a number for the film.
Reluctantly and nervously, Hrithik agreed and sang the song ‘Kites in the sky’. The track is composed by Hrithik’s uncle Rajesh Roshan.
“I was nervous to make my debut as a singer considering I come from a family that is well known in the world of music, but for this very reason my chacha (Rajesh Roshan) and Anurag were most certain that I could sing,” Hrithik said in a statement to the media.
The film’s music will be launched on 40 TV channels simultaneously as part of a roadblock marketing with the airing of the song ‘Kites In the sky’ on March 29 at 9.30 pm.

Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor will be hitting the road and travelling to different cities in India in the month of April. However, it’s not a recreational tour or a fun getaway, but a nationwide promotional campaign to promote their upcoming movie Raajneeti by director Prakash Jha.
Since the movie is a political thriller, Ranbir and Katrina will visit college campuses in different Indian cities and debate with students over political issues. The question, however, is - are the two well-versed in the politics of the land to engage in a meaningful debate and discussion about the subject.
We hear that Katrina has already started brushing up her knowledge of current affairs and politics. Ranbir, on the other hand, feels confident enough to be able to speak extempore.
Moreover, Jha, who is well-informed about politics, is going to guide the young duo.
During their visit to Delhi, the film’s promotional team will be joined by Rahul Gandhi, who’ll speak about various subjects related to politics, including the role youth can play.
After this pan-country promotion in eight cities and towns, Katrina and Ranbir may be travelling across the world for the premieres of ‘Raajneeti’ in New York, London, Bahrain, Muscat, Delhi and Mumbai in the first week of June.
That’s too much travelling together.
Neil Nitin Mukesh isn’t moping over his long-lasting love affair with childhood sweetheart Priyanka gone kaput recently. Rather, the alabaster complexioned lad is hanging out with pretty damsels of tinsel town.
First he went out with Deepika Padukone to watch her movie Karthik Calling Karthik. Now, on Friday, he was spotted having dinner with Asin in a five star hotel in Mumbai.
Confirming the dinner date, Neil tells a tabloid that he and Asin have been desiring to have dinner together for some time but could find time only last Friday.
Neil and Asin were apparently very comfortable during the dinner and were seen engaged in an animated conversation.
So, do we see something brewing between the two, or are they already dating?
Neil tells the tabloid: “I am not dating anybody. I am single and enjoying my single status.”
Well, that is more than apparent.

By now you must have got the breaking news that Sahara Group won the bid for the IPL team Pune for a staggering $370 million yesterday.
Along with Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor there was another Bollywood couple who participated in the bid. Both Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif were present in Chennai for the bidding of the new IPL teams but they placed the bids separately.
The Barbie doll of Bollywood was there representing Matrix along with the Adani Group from Ahmedabad and was vying for Pune team, as was Salman. However, Salman made a separate bid. Why?
Katrina clarified this to a tabloid: “I wasn’t bidding with Salman…I was not bidding at all. Salman had put in a separate bid.”
But as things turned out, none from Bollywood could grab the golden opportunity of owning an IPL team.
Salman, who was quite confident about his win, reportedly had a party planned back at home to celebrate the victory. Par yeh ho na saka. And the man is now reportedly upset, and suspects “foul play by vested interests.”
Who are they? you must be wondering. Well, expect the unexpected from the maverick director Vishal Bharadwaj.
First, he finalized Naseeruddin Shah as one of Priyanka’s husband in his next ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ and now he has reportedly signed Naseer’s youngest son Vivaan Shah as another husband.

Imaad Shah, the big brother of Vivaan confirms this to a daily, “Yes, my younger brother Vivaan is doing Vishal’s film along with my father, but I don’t know what role he’s playing.”
Reports are that Vishal has even signed a Russian actor for the film, but the man’s identity is kept under wraps. Now the list of Priyanka’s husbands includes Mohanlal, Naseer, Irrfan Khan, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anu Kapoor and Vivaan.

Apart from media's prying eyes Ranbir and Katrina's love story had one special witness to it as well. And she was none other than Priyanka Chopra!
Last year when Karina's New Year holiday stint with Ranbir was exposed by a tabloid, she became extremely cautious and managed to prove everyone that she was in her home all the time and the rumours were all lies.
But one night, on her date with Ranbir, poor Kat ran into Priyanka Chopra. She panicked and assumed that now the news would get back home. Since then two actresses are not on talking terms.
Kat asked Kapoor to speak to her and convince her to keep their little secret. And no one found out.
Although Katrina's spokesperson refuted the news calling it 'ridiculous' and 'sheer rubbish' but it's now more than confirmed that Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina are in love and it was one of the major reasons for the actor's break-up with Deepika Padukone.
We also hear that the two visit each other's house very often but they are totally tight-lipped about their relationship.
Now that's what we call Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani.
Seen the glow on Kajol's face, lately? It's not just about the success of her latest film My Name is Khan. We hear that the dusky beauty is reportedly pregnant again and the entire Devgan family is extremely ecstatic.
Kajol has already wrapped up a a major portion of Kumar Mangat's Toonpur Ka Superhero with Ajay and has finished shooting for Karan Johar's StepMom.
According to sources the promotional track of StepMom that was to be shot later is being wrapped up from March 20 in Mumbai because Kajol is participating in the song shoot. The film is slated for a July release and sources say the music video could very well have been shot later. However, keeping in mind Kajol’s decision not to do any work after March, the track is being shot now.
Adhering to the advice of her dearest hubby, Ajay Devgn, Kajol is managing her time well. Meanwhile, Ajay has also promised to work only in and around Mumbai, so that he could be within reach of his wife. Their first child Nysa is now 7 years old.
Here's wishing lots of luck to Ajay and Kajol.

Shahrukh Khan may be the arch foe of her beau Salman Khan, but that didn’t stop Katrina Kaif from opening up her arms and giving a warm, friendly hug to SRK at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on March 14.
It was a match between SRK’s team Kolkata Knight Riders and Vijay Mallya’s Bangalore Royal Challengers whose brand ambassador Katrina is. Though they were rooting for rival teams, Katrina and SRK met and exchanged pleasantries like two friends.
Katrina stepped forward and hugged SRK. The latter reciprocated with equal warmth and hugged her back. There was no discomfort or awkwardness apparent between the two.
Since it’s rare to see Kat hugging SRK, shutterbugs present at the venue did not miss the chance to click the image. We hope Salman won’t fume when he sees his arm candy embracing his foe.

وفاقی دارالحکومت اسلام آباد میں برطانوی سفارت اہلکاروں کے مطابق صوبہ پنجاب کے شہر جہلم سے گزشتہ دنوں اغوا ہونے والے پانچ سالہ پاکستانی نژاد برطانوی بچہ ساحل سعید بازیاب ہو گیا ہے۔
اسلام آباد میں تعینات برطانوی ہائی کمشنر ایڈم تھامسن نے منگل کی صبح ایک مختصر بیان میں ساحل نقاش کی بازیابی کی تصدیق کی۔ انہوں نے اس امید کا اظہار کیا کہ اس خبر سے ساحل اور اس کے خاندان کی کوفت اور پریشانی ختم ہوئی ہوگی۔
اس موقع پر برطانوی سفارت کار نے برطانوی اور پاکستانی حکام کے درمیان تعاون کی تعریف کی۔ انہوں نے جہلم پولیس کا بھی بچے کی بحفاظت بازیابی میں کامیابی پر خصوصی شکریہ ادا کیا۔ تاہم بیان میں یہ نہیں بتایا گیا ہے کہ بازیابی کیسے ممکن ہوئی۔
پولیس اہلکاروں نے پاکستانی میڈیا سے بات کرتے ہوئے کہا ہے کہ اغوا کار ساحل کو منگل کے روز جہلم سے بیس میل دور واقع قصبے ڈنگہ کے ایک سکول کے قریب چھوڑ گئے۔
ساحل کو چار مارچ کو نامعلوم افراد نے والد کے ساتھ گھر سے واپس برطانیہ کے لیے روانگی کے وقت اغوا کر لیا تھا۔ ان کے رشتہ داروں کا کہنا تھا کہ اغوا کارروں نے پہلے گھر کو لوٹا اور جاتے ہوئے بچے کو بھی ساتھ لے گئے۔
بعض اطلاعات کے مطابق اغوا کاروں نے بچے کی رہائی کے بدلے بڑی تاوان کی رقم کا تقاضا بھی کیا تھا۔ تاہم یہ واضح نہیں ہوسکا کہ آیا یہ رقم ادا کی گئی یا نہیں۔
وفاقی وزیرِ داخلہ رحمن ملک نے میڈیا سے بات کرتے ہوئے ساحل سعید کی بازیابی کی تصدیق کی اور کہا کہ بچے کے اغوا سے پاکستان کو بری پبلسٹی مل رہی تھی اور ’ہم اذیت کا شکار تھے۔‘ انھوں نے بچے کے اہلِ خانہ کو مبارک باد دی اور کہا کہ ’ہمیں اصل لوگوں کا (جو بچے کے اغوا میں ملوث ہو سکتے ہیں) پتہ چل گیا ہے۔‘
ساحل سعید کے خاندان کے ایک ترجمان نے بتایا ہے کہ ساحل کی والدہ عقیلہ نقاش نے ٹیلی فون پر اپنے بیٹے سے بات کی ہے۔ ترجمان نے بتایا کہ ساحل کی بازیابی سے پورے کا پورا خاندان بے انتہا خوش ہے۔
ساحل کو اغوا کرنے والوں نے بچے کی واپسی کے لیے بظاہر ایک لاکھ پاؤنڈ کا زرِ تاوان طلب کیا تھا لیکن ساحل کے خاندان نے کہا تھا کہ وہ اتنی زیادہ رقم کا انتظام ہرگز نہیں کر سکتے۔
اولڈھم سے تعلق رکھنے والے ساحل کے بارے میں پنجاب کے وزیر رانا ثنا اللہ نے ایک مقامی ٹی وی چینل کو بتایا تھا کہ ساحل کی بازیابی کے لیے تاوان کی رقم ادا کی گئی ہے۔ منگل کو جب ان سے پوچھا گیا کہ کیا ساحل کے والد نے بچے کی رہائی کے لیے تاوان ادا کیا ہے تو وزیر کا کہنا تھا کہ رقم ’برطانیہ میں نہیں بلکہ کسی دوسرے ملک میں ادا کی گئی۔‘ رانا ثنا اللہ نے یہ بھی کہا تھا کہ بچے کے اغوا میں ایک بین الاقوامی گروہ ملوث تھا۔
ریجنل پولیس افسر جہلم اسلم ترین نے صحافیوں سے گفتگو کرتے ہوئے بتایا کہ بچہ اچھی حالت میں ہے۔ ’اسے ہم نے کھلونے مہیا کیے ہیں۔ وہ کھیل کود رہا ہے۔’ تاہم انہوں نے کسی رشتہ دار کے ملوث ہونے کی افواہوں کی تردید کی ہے۔ ان کا کہنا تھا کہ نہ باپ اور نہ کسی اور رشتہ دار کے اس میں ملوث ہونے کے ثبوت نہیں ملے ہے۔ ’ابھی ہمیں نہیں معلوم کون ملوث تھا اس اغوا میں۔‘
ان کا کہنا تھا کہ انہیں کسی نامعلوم شخص سے صبح فون موصول ہوا جس میں بتایا گیا کہ بچہ فلاں مقام پر ہے۔ ان کا کہنا تھا کہ ان کا اغوا کاروں سے کوئی رابطہ نہیں ہے۔تاہم پولیس اہلکار نے اغوا کاروں تک پہنچنے کی تحقیقات پر روشنی ڈالنے سےگریز کیا ہے۔ ان کا کہنا تھا کہ بازیابی کے بعد اب تفتیش کا تیسرا مرحلہ جاری ہے اور جب مکمل ہوگا تو تب میڈیا کو آگاہ کیا جائے گا۔

Sushmita Sen who is known for frequently moving on with her choice of men has taken a U-turn this time. The former Miss Universe has dumped Mudassar Aziz, who directed her in Dulha Mil Gaya, for her ex-flame Manav Menon.
The duo have been spotted together a couple of times in the past few days across the city. The ad filmmaker and Sush had broken up in 2007 due to 'incompatibility'. But now it seems the duo are back to being compatible.
Aaccording to an eye witnesses, Menon and Sen clearly seem more than just friends again.
"Sushmita and Manav were seen at a suburban restaurant in Khar. An eyewitness said, “Both looked very comfortable in each other's company. They were discussing something very animatedly.” he told a leading daily.
However, friends close to Sush reveals that Sushmita’s approach towards all ex-boyfriends including Vikram Bhatt, Sanjay Narang, Randeep Hooda, Manav Menon or Mudassar Aziz, in her life is that she always manages to keep them as friends even after breaking up with men them.
Talking to a newspaper Sush also said, "I always try to remain friends. Sometimes I succeed. But I am very single. If I wasn't, you would not have to figure it out.”

An Israeli nationalist group has urged Bar Refaeli to dump American boyfriend, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, and settle down with a Jewish husband, says a report.
Contactmusic.com reports that Baruch Marzel, an Israeli politician sent a letter on behalf of the Lehava organisation.
"It is not by chance that you were born Jewish. Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family's future generations from the Jewish people. Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people," stated the letter.
Marzel added that he has "nothing against Mr DiCaprio, who I have no doubt is a talented actor, Come to your senses, look forward and back too and not only the present. Don't marry Leonardo DiCaprio, don't harm the future generations."
The supermodel, who has been dating DiCaprio since 2005, was forced to deny rumours about her engagement earlier this month after she was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger.
Actress Minissha Lamba admits her ultra-glamorous look in "Kidnap" opened a whole new range of opportunities for her. But the young actress, who will be seen in Shyam Benegal's new film, feels that at the end of it talent plays an important role.
"My looks in 'Kidnap' helped open a whole new and different range of opportunities for me. It is something I cherish. Being good looking is important, but not always. You need talent as well. If you have talent, people accept you regardless of the way you look," Lamba told over telephone from Mumbai.
She also feels being short is not a disadvantage in the film industry.
"If you are a model, having height is imperative, but cinema is a medium where it doesn't matter. You are on a platform where being tall or short loses relevance," she said.
After her glamorous avatar in "Kidnap", Minissha will be seen in a non-glamorous role in Benegal's forthcoming film, "Well Done Abba".
"At first I was really scared to work with Mr. Benegal. But once we started shooting, he turned out to be a really calm, jovial and humorous person. We never saw him upset on the sets," she said.
"Well Done Abba", a political satire, narrates the story of Armaan Ali (Boman Irani), a driver working in Mumbai.
He takes a month's leave to find a husband for his teenaged daughter, who lives in a small neighbourhood near Hyderabad. But he returns to his job after three months. His young employer wants to sack him, but is persuaded to listen to the reason why he got so delayed.
The film, produced by Reliance Big Pictures, is inspired by two short stories - "Narsaiyyan Ki Bavdi" by Jeelani Bano and "Phulwa Ka Pul" by Sanjeev.
Benegal had said in an interview that Minissha hasn't got her due in Bollywood, but the 25-year-old says she has no regrets.
"That's extremely generous of him to have said that, but it's all right. I hope with this film my talent gets appreciated and I get more opportunities to show my potential," she said.
Minissha started her journey as an actor from the critically acclaimed film, "Yahaan", alongside Jimmy Shergill in 2005. She was later seen in "Corporate", "Shaurya", and Yash Raj Films' "Bachna Ae Haseeno".
"It has been a great journey. There were disappointments and heartbreak, but I am grateful for where I am today. There is a lot more I need to do and work even harder," she added.
Releasing March 26, it also stars Samir Dattani, Ila Arun, Ravi Kisshan, Sonali Kulkarni and Yashpal Sharma.

This would be director James Cameron’s first visit to India and guess what he is going to do here? He reportedly will come and talk movies and that too with Bollywood’s talented actor-director Aamir Khan.
In New Delhi on March 13 there is going to be a conclave for which Avatar’s director James Cameron is invited to speak on the future of cinema. Yes, the cinema that uses state-of-the-art technology. And, giving him company would be Taare Zameen Par director Aamir Khan. The two speakers will not only discuss their films but will also address the topic of “changing environment in filmmaking”.
And as a source tells a tabloid, Aamir is excited about this opportunity and “Like everyone else, he too is dazzled by the special effects and 3D technology of ‘Avatar’. He plans to sit with Cameron and talk to him about his views...”
He also has plans to discuss with him how to market Indian films in the west.
Now that’s business, Aamir!

As she walks graciously on the ramp for designer friends Shantanu Nikhil on the third day of Lakme Fashion Week 2010, must say Deepika looked drop-dead gorgeous in that new ‘Motochic’ creation with a fuller figure.
Once India’s top ramp model and also a Kingfisher girl, Deepika proudly shuns the size zero fad as she asks, “Correct me if I am wrong, but I personally feel that the Indian body type is not cut out to be size zero. I am not size zero and I don’t believe in that either.”
And she further answers herself. “I believe that it’s nice to be little full and have a nice shape,” as she tells a news agency.
Well, couldn’t believe the words coming from a girl who was once pencil thin, but the shapely change on her is better for sure. In fact, her recent Maxim shoot also proved that.
The actress, who is also looking the same curvaceous self in the movie Housefull believes that, “an actress gets a role for her performance and not the body type.”
Well said, Deeps!
They may not be dating any more but country singer Taylor Swift still thinks that Taylor Lautner is the most "hot" guy around.
When the 20-year-old singer was asked who she thinks is hot, she shyly replied: "Um, well, Taylor Lautner." The duo dated casually last year before calling it quits in late December, reports people.com.
Swift also shared the difficulties that come with her celebrity status.
"I've had countless opportunities to do some really bad things. And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny," she said.
She admitted that constant media spotlight creates extra challenges that she has no control over.
"Like, if I go to a bar, even if I'm not drinking, who's to say that a source isn't going to say that I was doing something I shouldn't have been doing? So it's not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don't know," she said.
