Purab Kohli’s e-Valentine’s Day plans

Mumbai, Feb 13 (IANS) Moving on from flowers and cakes, actor Purab Kohli will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with his fiancée Lucy Payton and their daughter Inayat with a “romantic dinner” via Skype chat.

As Purab is currently shooting in Mumbai for “Rock On 2” and Lucy is in London, instead of spending time away from each other, the couple decided to make the most of the virtual medium.

“Well, this Valentine’s Day is very special for both Lucy and me as we plan to celebrate it with our little one. It’s just that one day of the year that we get a little extra fancy about saying ‘I love you’.

“Since I am currently shooting in Mumbai, we plan to have a romantic meal face-to-face on Skype and chow down together by the flickering glow,” Purab said in a statement.

The actor, who is enjoying the success of his latest Bollywood film “Airlift”, will get married to Lucy next year. The couple was blessed with a daughter last December.

Deja vu college moment for Arjun Kanungo

Singer and music composer Arjun Kanungo, known for popular track “Baaki baatein peene baad”, says going back to his college after garnering fame was special for him.

Kanungo, an alumnus of R.D. National College in Bandra West here, performed in his college on February 11 as part of the ninth edition of Cutting Chai festival.

But the interesting part is that Kanungo had formed Cutting Chai during his college days. And going back to his Alma Mater and performing there was a happy moment for him.

“My most memorable moments in life are from the National College days and after so many years going back to perform there was a great feeling. It was like homecoming. That too when it’s for Cutting Chai, it makes it even more special.

“It is amazing to see how it has become one of the popular college fests today in Mumbai. It has come a long away from where we started this,” Arjun said in a statement.

The festival is known for its long list of celebrity judges — from A.R. Rahman, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Varun Dhawan, Shabana Azmi, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui among others.
