Recently I read about Sobhaa De’s ‘overwhelming experience’ aboard Vijay Mallya’s luxury yacht, Kalizma on her Blog. India Forum readers had a lot to comment about it. This is what Sobhaa wrote, “On a personal note, thanks to our host Vijay Mallya, my husband and I were fortunate enough to spend a few nights on the same bed Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had shared on their splendid yacht, the matchless ‘Kalizma’, which Vijay now owns! As you can imagine, it was an overwhelming experience!!” Well this is not the first time Sobhaa De and her compulsory baggage, dear hubby, Dilip De had enjoyed Mallya’s hospitality aboard his luxurious yacht. Sobhaa De has a weakness for junkets – a scribe’s parlance for all-paid-for-trip! A few years back De was with Vijay Mallya on his yacht holidaying and the beauty was anchored in Monaco. No sooner did Sobhaa De discover it was Ronaldo Luiz’s yacht anchored next to Mallya’s, she hopped on to Ronaldo’s yacht. Ronaldo was partying with his buddies and babes and had run out of champagne. Star-struck Sobhaa De found it to be the most opportune moment and volunteered to organise some champagne. She quickly got back to Mallya’s yacht and asked a deck-hand to bring over a case of Dom Perignon to Ronaldo’s yacht. Poor Mallya must be cursing under his breath.
Then we have this gold-digging NRI Aunty – Kanika Chandhok, who post her divorce insists to be called Kanika Kapoor. She was at the nightclub – Project in London where incidentally the biggest soccer star – Lionel Messi dropped in. Kanika jumped all the velvet-ropes and almost landed on Messi and smothered him with kisses. Poor guy was just dealing with her as yet another crazy fan. Kanika literally offered herself on a platter but Messi wasn’t interested in a old hag. But the gold-digger managed to get a snap of hers with Messi, which she flaunts, garnished with some spicy story.
We also have B-Town girls running into soccer stars. Most recently it was Priyanka Chopra who met Cristiano Ronaldo in Miami and she too didn’t miss on the the photo-op. which was promptly posted on Twitter. Bollywood Gandu gave the best description on Piggy Chops’ outfit that she looked like the goal-post in that netted ensemble. Bipasha Basu ran into Cristiano Ronaldo in Berlin and they smooched too. It was the final straw that snapped her years old affair with John Abraham.
