After Wazir Bejoy Nambiars next a web series for Eros
Wazir has opened to a heartening response and its director Bejoy Nambiar is very happy. The reviews have been mixed but Bejoy is unperturbed. "That's how it has always been with my films. I am told the box office numbers are good. And that's what counts."

Just before Wazir released Bejoy married his steady girlfriend Sheetal Menon.

And life couldn't look any better for this director of dark urban tales. Interestingly Sheetal figured in the cast of Bejoy's first two films Shaitaan and David but not in Wazir. "That's because she got busy with wedding plans," says the newly-married filmmaker who has already moved on to his new project.

"It's web-series for ErosNow. There will be 12 short films, all unrelated, but each with a spin at the end," reveals Bejoy who has also done an hour-long film in and Indo-Pak omnibus produced by Shiija Kejriwal on behalf of the Zee channel.

Wazir director Bejoy Nambiar ties the knot with girlfriend Sheetal Menon
Bejoy Nambiar who made his directorial debut in Bollywood with Kalki Koechlin starrer Shaitaan, recently tied the knot with girlfriend Sheetal Menon. The wedding that was held at Kairali Heritage in Kochi, was a private affair attended by only family and close friends. The Kerala style wedding had the couple dressed in a Malayali ethnic attire with Bejoy sporting the traditional mundhu veshti and Sheetal in a cream and gold saree. From what we hear, the couple has taken off to Europe for their honeymoon and will bring in the New Year in there. Apparently, Bejoy met Sheetal on the sets of his Bollywood debut Shaitaan and since then the two have been dating.

Emraan Hashmi's Adhuri filming!

Intro: Beginning this week, we bring you another weekly column that dwells on the intricacies of Bollywood and the people who make it. Sometimes funny, sometimes informative, always downright forthright!

Hashmi's Adhuri filming!

This is epic. Not jumping on to Balan's lips must have been a frustrating time for Emraan Hashmi in Hak. It's his haq, you see, of smooching every heroine he is paired up with. In a few films he has also flaunted this 'license' he has been supposedly given by over-enthusiastic directors and ever-willing heroines with some cheesy lines. Every time in Hak, he has gotten dangerously close to Vidya Balan's lips, and then like a good boy, gone for a traditional hug.

Surely, he must be feeling that this was adhuri shooting.

Balan is big when it comes to lip-locks

Speaking of Vidya Balan, she is not averse to kissing, or is in anyway a bad kisser.

Matrabhoomi director turns actor for Bejoy Nambiars David

Matrabhoomi director turns actor for Bejoy Nambiars David
Bejoy Nambiar has been left with no choice but to film the three stories of his new film David in reverse. He has just completed the third story featuring Tamil star Vikram and Tabu. Now he moves into the second story this July with Vinay Virmani and Lara Dutta in the cast, though the two are not paired together. The first story with Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead has been the most problematic. Though Neil green lighted the project, he has yet to find dates for it, as he's busy shooting for a horror thriller with his lady-love Sonal Chauhan. Says a source, "Neil favoured 3G, the film that was shot in Fiji. Away from prying eyes in Mumbai, Neil and Sonal got to know one another really well." Back home, rather than twiddle his thumb, Bejoy Nambiar has decided to shoot another story with a very unusual cast.
