    hehe I felt so bad when I came across the news of Abhay Deol complaining about huge cost on dresses worn in the movie. I feel it was totally worth it.
    As I scrolled down, I really wanted to see gossip girl in the list even when it’s not a movie. How can anyone miss it?
    And Devil wears a Prada is my FAV!
    Have you read the book?
