Tabu has had a lot of link-ups in the industry including Sajid Nadiawala and Sanjay Dutt. The latest addition to this list is Sushmita Senâ€™s ex-boyfriend Randeep Hooda who was seen in the recently released flick â€˜Riskâ€™. Sources say that they met at a discotheque in Juhu.

Dia Mirza got a shock of her life when she did not get to dub for the scene shot by her for â€˜Shootout At Lokhandwalaâ€™. Her role has been cut shot and this has been done by none other than her boyfriend and filmâ€™s director Apoorva Lakhia. Apoorva says that the decision to cut the scenes was taken during editing and an actor must think about the movie more than his or her role. On the other hand, Dia says that the scenes were cut without intimating her and this will definitely hamper the movie rather than benfitting it.

She has also donned a new role as a reality TV host for IIFA along with Anil Kapoor, Karan Johar and others for the show â€˜Star ki Talaashâ€™.
She feels the reality shows are all tears, laughter, jubilation along with disappointment. She says, â€œI loved the idea when it was told to me. It gives an opportunity to reach out to your audience. It’s amazing to see the change in personalities. It’s a gift. That’s why I shall try and ensure that the contestants don’t have jittersâ€.

â€œIt was shot before I debuted in this serial,â€ says the 23- year old who is hoping Bollywood will notice her new avatar. â€œI would love to do glamorous roles though I donâ€™t believe in exposing just like that,â€ she states. Is that the bare truth?
