Kat excited to be an item girl

Katrina Kaif has never been known to raise her voice, let alone act aggressive, in public.

But the actress is set to change that and more for Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan, in which she plays an item girl.

Suddenly, Katrina’s manner and speech have become loud and demonstrative.

Even early in the morning at Malshej Ghat, where the film is currently being shot.

The schedule begins at 5am every morning and the actress is not letting up in her own effort to look different.

In each of the item songs, being choreographed by Farah and her assistant Gita.

In fact Katrina has even shopped for her character’s look, right from clothes to accessories.

In small shops that sell cheap stuff. Commenting on her shopping frenzy, Katrina says, “It is a challenge doing.

A complete look for my character. I guess I learnt that from Raajneeti. Every accessory makes you feel more like the character.”

Katrina has also been catching up on the best item numbers in Bollywood, right from Mumtaz’s Tik tiki tik mera dil bole.

In Humjoli (1970) to Bipasha Basu’s Beedi jalaile in Omkara (2006), to get.

A more comprehensive understanding of the typical Bollywood item girl. Akshay has been teaching Katrina the art of losing one’s inhibitions while dancing on camera. Katrina says, “I’ve always wanted to freak out on camera, to just get wild. This is my chance.”

Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif or Kareena Kapoor - Whom would you zip your lip with?

Bollywood boasts of many beautiful actresses who have set the male pulse racing with an electrical speed whenever they do.

A raunchy scene with their oh-so-lucky male co-stars. But, if you get an opportunity, then whom would you zip your lip with:

1. Katrina Kaif- Katrina has won some coveted awards in the honour of her luscious lips.

That are said to be Bollywood’s Best Lips of the current times. Even her commercial.

That highlights her wet lips yearning for a drop of a soft drink makes us almost tear into our TV screens.

2. Kareena Kapoor- She has smooched in many films and has toppled Mallika Sherawat (who is having a quiet time hissing about somewhere) from the throne of Miss Kiss. Her extremely penetrative kisses with Hrithik, Shahid, Saif and even Aamir have made her the queen of sealing lips. All you need to do to ensure a lip deal with her is to get yourself.

3. Aishwarya Rai- No Bollywood list is complete without her. Though, she is touching 37, still her lips are as inviting as they were 16 years back when she was crowned Miss World. And my crystal ball says that all of you male guys, at some point of time, must have fancied yourself sharing a lip-to-lip with the Goddess of Beauty.

Katrina Kaif injured while dancing with Akshay

Katrina Kaif ended up getting hurt while shooting a groovy dance sequence with Akshay Kumar for Farah Khan’s film Tees Maar Khan at Malshej Ghat.

A few hours’ drive from Mumbai.It appears that both Katrina and Akshay were in a groovy mood and wanted to put.

Their best foot forward while filming a ballet-like dance sequence on Friday. However, due to some mistiming in the dance move or perhaps they got too close, Katrina’s head bumped into Akshay’s jaw and teeth.

Strangely, nothing happened to Akshay but Katrina got injured on her head and felt dizzy and disoriented after the bump.

While Farah Khan rushed to look after her, Akshay was in a jocular mood and scared Katrina further by saying that she would have to get a few stitches.

Katrina was attended by a doctor and given all medical attention. She’s learnt to have resumed the film’s shoot now.

Just a few days back, Katrina had fainted on the sets of the movie. Before that she battled a series of health scares including food poisoning and surgery.

Priyanka Chopra comes between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif

Now here’s a piece of news that is bound to end all speculation of an awaited love affair between Ranbir and Katrina on the sets of ‘Khamoshi’.

The gorgeous stars, who are often linked with each other, will have little chance to get up-close and personal on the sets of their forthcoming movie.

As the dainty Priyanka Chopra will be on location too. And no, Miss Piggy Chops is not playing any spy role but will be present on the sets as a part of the movie.

Reports suggest that the much talked about Anurag Basu flick ‘Khamoshi’ will not only have Ranbir and Katrina but also Priyanka in the lead role.

Thereby, leaving little or no chance for any romantic alliance between the dishy Kapoor scion and his latest fixation Kat. Confirming the news a source said, “Anurag Basu is currently trying to finalise.

The dates as Priyanka is also committed to Don 2 with Farhan Akhtar and Shah Rukh Khan”.So even though the duo will have no chance to get personal.

On this one, sources state that Katrina is giving Imtiaz Ali’s offer opposite Ranbir a second thought. The stunner had initially refused Imtiaz for Basu’s film but considering that Imtiaz is known to give his actresses a centre role in his films, Kat might just hop on the opportunity.

Genelia wins the heart of Aussie minister

External affairs minister SM Krishna might have hard times dealing with Australian racism attacks, but now he has got a new ambassador in Genelia D'Souza.

Charming Genelia, recently had a great time in Australia, shooting over her latest Telugu film Orange. Genelia, who has a huge fan following in the south.

As well as north, was invited for a lunch in the parliament by The Australian Minister for Education. But unfortunately.

She couldn't attend. It is said that minister visited to the sets and he spent some time chatting about racial attacks and Tollywood films. Guys, with the beautiful smile and expressions she can even win a devil's heart, isn't it?

Aishwarya Rai-A natural stunner in the age of fake beauties

Even though Aishwarya has often been termed as ‘plastic’ by some, there is no iota of doubt that Aishwarya’s beauty is all natural and god-gifted.

It has often been claimed that Aishwarya is probably the only actress who has got best features and that too, perfect.

She has often been termed as the most beautiful woman of the world. Fellow actress Priyanka Chopra once commented that.

She thinks god was on a vacation when he made Aishwarya, whereas we, the mortals, were made in a day.

This complement itself speaks volumes about the beauty of this gorgeous lady who is now married to actor Abhishek Bacchan.

In fact, her hubby, in an interview claimed that she looks as much perfect when she gets up in the morning after the night’s sleep, as when she is making people drooling by appearing in front of the camera.

She did a non glamorous role in a Bengali film called”Chokher Bali “where she was draped in a white sari for most of the time. Even though she was not allowed to wear make-up, the beautiful lady looked absolute fresh and radiant in the movie.

She earned much critical acclaim and praise for her role as a widow in the movie. The ravishing beauty was ready to go without make-up once again in the film’Provoked’and received rave reviews for her role of a battered housewife.

Bollywood today has very strict notions of what is beautiful and what is not. Actresses today don’t think twice to get under the knife to get that very perfect look. Even though the results have been disastrous in case of some actresses, the popularity of cosmetic surgery has not diminished even a bit.

Aishwarya, on the other hand, can be an example of how a natural beauty can be so stunning. She is 36 today, but does not look like. She has maintained herself well and her still gives off the same radiance and warmth even after so many years. No matter she has been called plastic by some, this elegant woman gets our vote for being a natural beauty.

Ash needs a break

Bollywood rumours, once again, of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being pregnant, were delightfully laughed away by the Bachchan bahu. I think it was triggered off by that ad with Abhishek and me,” she said. The ad has the couple saying, “Ek khush khabri hai ... (there’s good news).” Ash added, “But there’s no truth to it.
So, that puts to rest the buzz about her walking out on Abhinay Deo’s Crooked, in which she teams up again with Abhishek, and also stories of her aim being to complete Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Mani’s Raavan and Rajinikanth’s Endhiran as early as possible. A friend of Ash said, “It’s a very tough balancing act. She needs a break.”
