Katrina Kaif dazzles at Nakshatra event

That Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai lost the deal of jewelry brand Nakshatra to Katrina Kaif a few months back had already been informed to you at our space. And undoubtedly, the decision of the company seemed to be apt as we saw Katrina sizzling and dazzling at the promotional event for Nakshatra.

Katrina Kaif has been tagged as the Goddess of Luck for promotions and brand endorsements in the industry. A firm believer in destiny, Katrina feels anyone can be what he wants to be and destiny plays a major part in it. God has of course been very kind to her, adds the actress. In a recent interview Katrina had also confessed that she is most comfortable in front of 300 people on a set. Otherwise, she is lost, says Katrina.

However, even after replacing Ash, Katrina feels that she is no comparison for the Bachchan Bahu as she has an iconic status. Katrina has a series of projects lined up for the coming year - there’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani , De Dhana Dhan and the soon-to-be-released New York with co-stars Ranbir Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham respectively.

Sonam Kapoor signs her first endorsement deal

Her first film ‘Saawariya’ was a disaster, but she managed to get a huge fan following owing to her freshness and beauty. Talking about Sonam Kapoor, the gal has had no other releases as yet post ‘Saawariya’. She is busy doing Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Delhi 6’ opposite Abhishek Bachchan and has just signed in her first endorsement deal.

Now, the young actress will be the brand ambassador for international cosmetic brand L’Oreal and will launch its new range of products targeted at the young generation. Aishwarya Bachchan has been the brand face of L’Oreal for three years now. However, looking at her age and status, the company has decided to sign in young face Sonam Kapoor for their new product to be launched soon.

Ash will continue to be with the brand but she will represent only women of her ages and Sonam, the younger groups. Sonam was signed for a huge amount commensurate with what the actresses of today like Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra are charging. The deal was brought about by celebrity management company, Atul Kasbekar’s Bling. Sonam has already shot for her first L’Oreal ad which will be launched sometime in January next year (2009).

When Sachin came to see Aamir’s body


Rumors were rife recently that Sachin Tendulkar was so impressed by Aamir Khan’s new buffed up body that he turned up at the premiere just to check out Aamir’s body, however the perfectionist Khan denied the silly rumors.He said, “No, no, he came to see the film. He wanted to see the film. It was a media thing that he wanted to see the body, that he asked if it is real, aisa kuch nahi hua tha.”Aamir also revealed the idea behind his new body, “I have always been fond of sports, but training, hitting the gym is not something I have been fond of, and when I’ve done it, it hasn’t lasted more than a couple of months. But the director wanted a particular kind of look for the character, so I jumped into it. I’d no idea how far I’d go, I started from zero and went at it hammer and tongs. When I started, I hated it. But after a point, I began enjoying it… Ironically, just as I reached peak form and completed shooting, about seven months ago, I had to start undoing what I did, because for Raju Hirani’s film I have to have a very non-muscular look. So for the last seven months, I haven’t been training. That has been more traumatic than building it. I worked so hard to reach there and then I said to myself, oh God, I have to undo it all! But that’s my job as an actor…”Well that’s Aamir for us - A true perfectionist.

Deepika doesn’t want to be compared

Deepika Padukone’s latest film will see her doing some really great stunts with Khiladi Kumar Akshay Kumar. However the leggy lass doesn’t like it when she is compared to any other actress.She says, “I’m different… Don’t compare me with Priyanka Chopra just because she’s done stunts in Drona and I’ve done action sequences in Chandni Chowk to China (CC2C). Each person is unique and so am I. I worked hard for six months to learn those stunts and was specially trained by experts from Hong Kong.I’m glad filmmakers recognise my talent… I will be playing a dual role once again in CC2C, after Om Shanti Om. I’m happy filmmakers find me capable of portraying different roles. It’s given me confidence and satisfaction.Wearing those tight wigs for CC2C was painful… One of the two roles I play in the film is that of a Chinese girl. Which is why it was necessary for me to wear those tight wigs with a fringe. Even my eyes had to be stretched out for the role. It really hurt.I feel fortunate to have worked with some of the top heroes… From Shah Rukh Khan to Akshay Kumar. And now I’m working with Saif for Imtiaz Ali’s next film, after which I will be working with Akshay once again. Akshay is a fantastic guy with many years of experience. I’m glad I’ve got to work with all of them so early in my career.”So are you ready for some action?
