Mumbai, March 23 -- It seems like they were just not destined to soak in the colours of the festival this Holi, remarks Safedi Lal as he brings my dry-cleaned linen. Who are you talking about, I wonder, and he says, Sonam Kapoor and Aamir Khan. I didn't know they were planning to celebrate Holi together?

So my washerman explains that Sonam, who has never celebrated the festival till date, was looking forward to playing with colours to promote her forthcoming film, Thank You. But unfortunately, she was asked to report for the shoot of Abbas-Mustan's Players.

Reason: Vinod Khanna had an extra day to spare, so the men in white decided to utilise it to shoot his scenes with her too. Okay. So where does Aamir come into the picture? Safediji says that the actor was invited, along with wife Kiran Rao, nephew Imran Khan and biwi Avantika Malik Khan to celebrate the festival at Rakeysh Mehra's bungalow in the neighbourhood. But after the earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, apna sentimental actor-filmmaker has decided to skip all celebrations. Hmmm... Points noted!
