The actor, who recently hurt his forehead, fractured his finger while playing cricket with the cast and crew of Rohit Shetty's Bol Bachchan in Jaipur Abhishek Bachchan has been calamity prone of late. A few days ago, the actor hurt his forehead, while shooting for Bol Bachchan in Jaipur. On Wednesday, the actor hurt himself yet again. A source informed that the Abhishek, who was taking some time of work playing cricket with director Rohit Shetty and other crew members, fractured the ring finger of his left hand. The source explained that when the actor was fielding, he tripped and landed on his left hand. The source said, "His body weight landed on the hand. He immediately got up, but soon felt pain in his fingers. Sensing that something was definitely wrong, he went for an X-ray, which revealed that one of the fingers had been fractured."

Agneepath’s Tezz challenge at the BO
 
After convincing the producers of Reema Kagti's untitled film to reschedule their release date, the Tezz producers will now have to negotiate with Karan Johar, who has postponed the release of the Hrithik Roshan starrer Agneepath to January 26 It seems that apart from investing in the action-thriller Tezz, the film's producers have spent much of their time negotiating with other filmmakers for the coveted Republic Day release. On September 7, 2011 Mumbai Mirror, had reported that director Priyadarshan and producer Ratan Jain were trying to convince the producers of Reema Kagti's untitled film to re-schedule the release of the Aamir Khan starrer. And just when the filmmakers of the Ajay Devgn starrer Tezz managed to avert a box-office clash with Aamir, they have another filmmaker to contend with. A source informed that now Karan Johar wants to release his Hrithik Roshan starrer Agneepath on January 26. Initially, the film was supposed to release on January 13. Interestingly, the industry has been abuzz with speculations that Dibakar Banerjee is also vying for the same release date for his film Shanghai. Reportedly, Jain has already called Johar and the two have decided to meet to discuss how to work around this clash. "One of them needs to bend. It would be ridiculous if both Tezz and Agneepath release on the same date. In such a scenario, they would definitely cut into each other's business," explained the source. While Jain and Johar have decided to work it out, many in the industry are questioning KJo's reasons for postponing Agneepath's release. The source added, "One fails to understand why Karan decided to push Agneepath by a fortnight. Even though January 26 is a National holiday, it is not a commercially wise decision to have all three films release on the same day." When contacted, Jain confirmed that he will be meeting Johar soon to discuss a way out of the box-office clash. When asked if he would reschedule the release of Tezz if Johar was adamant to release Agneepath on January 26, the producer said, "Woh dekha jayega. I haven't thought so far. But if we hit the theatres on the same day, both the films would definitely incur some loss."

RA.One first, party later
 
SRK who prioritises work, still attended his good friend’s birthday bash All work and no play seems to be Shah Rukh Khan's new mantra. The actor has dedicated most, if not all of his time to his ambitious project, RA. One. Reportedly, SRK, who was supposed to host a party for Paris like he does for all other international celebrities, decided that work was more important than socialising. However, even then, the actor did not forget his promise to his good friend Yogesh Lakhani, the owner of a major outdoor advertising company. A source informed us that SRK had promised Yogesh that he would attend his birthday bash at a suburban five-star hotel. Even though the actor was caught up in meetings and was unable to make it by midnight, he still paid a visit at 3:30 am. When contacted, Lakhani said, "SRK had promised me that he would come in by midnight. He was delayed due to an urgent meeting, but he still came in around 3.30 am. I did not cut the cake till he arrived." SRK, however, remained unavailable for comment.

Russell’s Ash joke gets Speedy apology
 
At a promotional event last week, the stand-up comedian’s comments about Aishwarya’s inability to act has sent co-producer Ajay Virmani on a damage control mission Russell Peters has made a living out of his bawdy, politically incorrect humour. Even his impersonations of different accents which taking potshots at a community’s quirks have had his audience in splits. But probably for the first time in his career, nobody was laughing. Reportedly, Russell, who debuted in Akshay Kumar’s Speedy Singhs, made a dig at Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s acting abilities at one of the film’s promotional events, last week. And now we hear that the Speedy Singhs producers are on a damage control mission. At a recent promotional event, Russell joked, “Aishwarya is the biggest example of bad acting. She has proved it time and time again that in Bollywood, people can become superstars just by having a pretty face.” A source informed us that the stand-up comedian’s statements have hugely embarassed the film’s co-producer, Ajay Virmani, who is also the father of Speedy’s Singhs’ debutant actor Vinay. Ajay has apparently taken it upon himself to apologise for the bad blood that Russell may have created with the Bachachan family. “After Russell’s comment the Virmanis hastily left india.The remark against Aishwarya has considerably embarrassed the Virmanis. Ajay Virmani has played host to Aishwarya at his home, in Toronto, in the past. She is someone he respects. The last thing he needed was to have his son’s career in Bollywood jeopardised by an ill-behaved comedian,” explained the source. When contacted, Ajay, who is promoting his son’s debut film in London, said, “I have no control over what Russell says. What he says is not reflective of our opinion or what the film is all about. Aishwarya is a fantastic actress and a legend. I apologise for his comments.”
