Dallas Takes a Pregnant Pause
Looks like the big-screen version of Dallas is being pushed further off the starting line, thanks to the just-announced pregnancy of director Gurinder Chadha. She tells the Associated Press in a story that just moved that she's expecting twins -- "and plans to name them after Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced their engagement," which is, uh, cool. But more to the point, the maker of Bend It Like Beckham and Bride & Prejudice tells the AP, "No film experience can compare with this [pregnancy]. In fact, I've put my big project Dallas on hold until the babies come." They're due in June. --Robert Wilonsky
