Salman Khan’s new female avatar in Jaanemann
Salman’s forthcoming film Jaanemann will see the actor in several different looks. He actually sports five different looks in the film. But the one look which has got everyone excited is his new female avatar. For his female avatar Salman sports a shoulder length wig for his hair, he dons long eyelashes, eye make-up, lipstick and the works. He even wears a pretty feminine dress to complete the look. However Salman was a tad reluctant at first to sport a female avatar as he takes great pride in his macho image on-screen. But after director Shirish convinced him he agreed without much fuss. However it was a bit difficult to give Salman the female make-over as he has a huge muscular body, nonetheless the actor looks quite cute in his female get-up. In the film another avatar that Salman Khan is seen playing is that of legendry singer Elvis Presley and he looks like a complete rockstar in this avatar.
Shahrukh Khan’s loo is his second office
SRK may be known as the King Khan in bollywood but when the actor wants some peace and quiet time for himself the first place that he goes is his loo. In fact according to sources the actor’s loo is almost like a second office just without a secretary. The actor has an entire collection of books stacked in his toilet to indulge in during his time-out. When Shahrukh is catching up with his peace and quiet he does not let his wife, kids and even his staff’s incessant knocking bother him. Shahrukh also never switches off his cell phone but instead keeps it in the loo when he is resting and during his visits to the loo in the night he checks up on messages and calls. Another habit of the actor is that he is always two hours late on the sets of his films but the charming actor always makes it a point to apologise to those around him for his tardiness.
Priyanka Chopra insecure about sharing screen space with Kareena, Isha Koppikar
Recently according to rumours, Priyanka Chopra is feeling a tad insecure and is angry with the producers of her soon to be released film Don. The reason for Priyanka being upset is that she feels she is not being promoted as much as her other female co-stars in the film Kareena Kapoor and Isha Koppikar. Priyanka plays the female lead in Don but she has hardly been seen in the promos of the film. On the contrary Kareena who just has a cameo in the film has been receiving praises for her sensational dance to the song ‘Ye Mera Dil’ and even Isha too looks hot in the promos of the film. But Priyanka who is currently out of town refutes any rumours of insecurity saying “Do I look insecure? I’m so proud to be a part of Don and I am proud to have worked with all the talented people in the film.” Priyanka also says “I have worked with Kareena before; she’s wonderful and adds to the star value of a set-up. Even Isha is very good in the film.”
Incessant phone calls for Ash from die hard fans across the globe
The phone has been continuously ringing at any time of the day or night ever since a film magazine published a phone number and address stating that it belonged to actress Aishwarya Rai. Unfortunately the number that has been given out is not that of Aishwarya Rai but her secretary Hari Singh. The poor man has been harrowed with Ash’s fans calling up at all hours of the day and night and gushing about how much they admire the star. Ash too is a bit upset that her poor secretary has to put up with the calls but now Hari Singh has found a way out and he just diverts the calls to a pre-recorded message. The promos of Ash’s film Umrao Jaan are on air and the actress looks exceptionally gorgeous. JP Dutta's Umrao Jaan is his adaptation of Ruswa's famous Urdu novel Umra-O-Jaan-E-Ada written in the 19th century published in the year 1899 by Mahadeo Prasad Publishers of Lucknow.

Other films based on the novel are Zindagi aur Toofan, Mehendi and Muzzaffar Ali's ‘Umrao Jaan’. In the 50's O P Dutta the script writer of Umrao Jaan and J P Dutta's father had also started making his version of the film starring Nimmi but that film could not be completed. So in a way by making this film J P Dutta has lived his father's dream.
Abhishek Bachchan voted sexiest Asian male
A Britain newspaper has voted Abhishek Bachchan as the most sexiest Asian male amongst fifty other candidates. Last year Abhishek was number three on the list but in 2006 he has managed to top the list. Abhishek Bachchan says “Oh God really! That’s interesting, shocking actually. But seriously I would like to thank everyone. I don’t agree with them but it is sweet.” Abhishek topped the list amongst other bollywood hunks like John Abraham, Saif Ali Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Upen Patel and Arjun Rampal. A reporter from the publication that published the list says “Abhishek was on top of the list because of his appeal to the thinking woman. Having successfully stepped out of his father’s shadow as an actor in his own right, he will surely build on that with roles in ‘Umrao Jaan’, ‘Dhoom 2’ and ‘Guru’ this year.” Well Abhishek surely seems to be rocking at the moment.
