The director of course refutes this saying that his movie is nothing like the one featuring Julie Andrews. Giving Saif and Rani company in Thoda Pyaar? will be four cute kids. The film is scheduled to release on June 27.

While on Rani, the latest buzz is that the actress will be stepping into Bipasha Basu’s glamorous shoes in Dhoom 3. Grapevine also has it that Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan will be doing Hrithik’s and Abhishek’s roles respectively.

It’s destination Miami for two of the hottest couples of Bollywood! First Abhishek Bachchan had his wife Aishwarya join him there to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. Now it’s John Abraham and Bipasha Basu who are soaking in the sun ‘n’ sand, albeit for just three days. The two heroes are in Miami, Fla., shooting for Karan Johar’s new film Dostana.

Incidentally, the buzz is that John is playing a gay character in Dostana and, yes, this is the same movie that Aishwarya turned down after she married Abhishek. “I would have been embarrassed doing the role,” the prim ‘n’ propah lady had been quoted as saying. Karan then offered the role to Priyanka Chopra who was quite happy to accept it.
