The very pretty and promising Angela Johnson seems to be in the news for all the wrong reasons. First there was all those link-up stories with Ranbir Kapoor which were stoutly denied by the Kapoor camp.
Then came reports—not unfounded—that Salman Khan had taken Angela under his wings and that she had been signed for an exclusive 3-film deal with Sohail Khan Productions. The fact that she had, was confirmed by Sohail to this writer.
But now comes reports that Salman is “pissed off” because Angela is “seeing” Tiger Shroff. There is one problem with this obviously-planted mischievous report. Forget seeing her, Tiger has literally never seen Ms Johnson.
Says the obviously-baffled and very shy Shroff, “I’ve never this lady in my life. I don’t know where these reports come from, and what they mean. I’m just wondering why my name is out there. I am no star-kid. Just a kid working hard, minding my own business. ”
A little further probing reveals that the only connectivity between Master Shroff and Baby Johnson is a film that was being planned by Aamir Khan Production as Jackie and Ayesha’s son launch pad. It was felt Angela fitted the bill. ”
But after the recent inane reports the potential screen jodi has been hastily nipped in the bud.
Ayesha Shroff is not amused by recent attempts to link their son Tiger with Angela Johnson.
Says the concerned mother, “My son has never met Angela. So it’s anyone’s guess where these rumours are coming from.
We plan to take very serious action against any attempts to sabotage Tiger’s career even before it’s taken off. He’s such a hard-working boy, never seeks any attention from anyone. Please, I request everyone to leave him alone. ”
Ayesha admits Angela was considered as a potential co-star for her son. “There are no girls around whom we can see as co-stars for Tiger. One day I saw Angela’s picture.
She’s pretty and I thought she’d make a compatible pair wth him. But then we heard she was under contract with Salman. And we quickly dropped the idea. ”
Though Salman was not available for comment someone very close to him poohpoohed reports of him acting over-protective about Angela.
“Do you really think Bhai cares about what she does or doesn’t do? He treats her like a kid. He has hardly exchanged anything more than an absent-minded smile and a hello with her. We wonder where these stories are coming from!”
A word of advice for nubile newbies who make a wanna-beeline for Bollywood. Getting talked about through talked-about actors may get a few headlines. But they don’t amount to any headway in the entertainment industry.
