Bhandevanop "Mom Noi" Devakula has postponed work on his remake of the erotic film "Jan Dara" because he can't find the right actress for the role filled by Hong Kong's Christy Chung in Nonzee Nimitbutr's 2001 version.
Mom Noi’s giving himself an extra month, presumably to “try out” different actresses to play opposite Mario Maurer and Chaiphol
Pupart, and if he can’t find the perfect babe here he’s willing to fly all the way to South Korea or Japan with his casting couch.
In the meantime we must gossip. One rumour has it that Marsha Wattanapanich might get the role, but Mom is staying mum. Asked
about Marsha, he would only say no decision yet.
What about Japan, then?
A lot of male moviegoers are rooting for Maria Ozawa, and not because of her emotional range.
Picking on Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra over her Bt20-million collection of eight cars is small beans. A better target is Deputy
Prime Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung, even if the only vehicle he’s officially declared is a Porsche Cayenne.
Chalerm is occasionally seen riding around in a pink Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed that, according to ASTV Motoring, is one of
only two in the world – the other one belonging to Paris Hilton. Yes, hers is pink as well, to match her pet Chihuahua, but Chalerm went for pink because he was born on a Tuesday, which is the pink day.
Chalerm also owns a Bentley Mulsanne that’s worth around Bt33 million
and a BMW 760I, also pink, valued at Bt18 million. Now there’s a Bt12-million Jaguar XJ too.
Add it all up and you’ve got Bt88 million worth of wheels. None of the four cars was declared as a personal asset, ASTV observes,
and then helpfully points out that none of them is bullet-proof either.
Who would want to shoot at a pink car? And who would dare shoot at
Chalerm? He’d climb out and verbally tear you into little pieces. Guy’s as safe as a house.
