Kashmera Shah wants to go the Angelina Jolie way!

The latest to be hit by the calorie consciousness bug is Bollywood bombshell Kashmera Shah. Not to be left behind in the eating-right-routine, Kash has started living on fruits and salads.

Yes! You heard it right. “Mornings are for fruits and juices, afternoons for raw greens, and evenings are for”, what else, but “more raw greens,” she quips with a wink. Ooh la la!

 

 

If this goes on, we wonder what’ll happen to her famous curves! Kash seems to have that too, all sorted out! She gorges on brown bread and butter after the greens! Oh oh! Butter after greens? Then what’s the use of the entire strict regimen? “One needs some fats and carbohydrates too, to balance things out in the body, isn’t it,” she retorts. Ah, yes! We simply forgot.

“Even if I can match up to Angelina Jolie’s hot-bod, I’ll be happy,” says Kash. All this, while chewing up on lots of iceberg lettuce and baby spinach, with a few slices of tomato and cucumber thrown on top, with sprinkled Italian seasoning at her favourite snack-spot Indigo; the upmarket restaurant in Andheri, Mumbai.

Kashmera Shah’s play goes the Hollywood way!

Many movies have shot two to three different endings and climax sequences and decided which one to add in their projects at the last minute.

It’s a common practice in Hollywood to shoot two movie endings, take the opinions of focus groups and a cross section of people and retain the one more accepted. Bollywood too has caught up with a similar trend off late.

But what surprises us now is that Kashmera Shah’s latest play Tere Ghar Ke Samne has adopted a similar practice, albeit with a difference.

Over a few summer Sundays spread across weeks, Kash’s play has been running to packed houses at various theatre outlets, while experimenting with not two, but three different endings. Almost every week, the viewers get to see a different climax to her play. Whoa!

What’s more! What started as a one-off experiment is now becoming the norm. “Earlier we thought we’d do this for a couple of weeks and then stick to the end the audiences find the best. But this experimenting process gets the actors and audiences alike so kicked, that we are continuing with it,” reveals Kash.

Thanks to this, a select percentage of audiences have even returned for an extra round of the play, just to see how it will end in their second outing. We are often amazed how you manage to begin such whacky trends Kash, but it’s cool as long as you continue to amuse and entertain. More power to you and your wackiness girl!

Kashmera Shah counts her benefits after Delhi robbery!

The hoity-toity Kashmera Shah is a happy girl once again! Her belongings, including her handbag and credit cards were stolen from her car while she was shooting for Channel [V]’s show Steal Ur Girlfriend in Delhi last week. But now, the channel and the show’s production house Random Productions, has gifted her a brand new bright red DKNY handbag.

 

“They felt bad that the robbery took place outside their office and also the fact that I had not complained about it to them at all,” said Kashmera. “In fact, I spent an hour blocking my credit cards and the moment the last one was blocked, I smiled and said ‘let’s shoot’.”

 

“The production guys thought I would remain upset the whole day, but when they saw me shooting with a smile, they decided to compensate a bit for my loss,” she adds, delighted at their thoughtful gesture.

 

But one thing Kash still regrets about the robbery, is losing a precious ring that her boyfriend Krushna had gifted her. “That’s one thing which pained me a lot,” she rues. But Krushna being her knight in shining armour, has promised to buy her a better one this Valentines. No wonder, Kash is on cloud nine, and can’t stop counting her benefits from the robbery!

Amar Upadhyay breaks down on Bigg Boss!

The otherwise ‘smart player’ of the Bigg Boss House, Amar Upadhyay, broke down last evening on the show.

 

Since day one, Amar has been strong in the House, but when Akashdeep Sky Saigal asked him about his mother, his eyes went moist.

 

During the conversation, Amar told the inmates how he was once shooting for a film in Manali, when his mother called and he couldn’t speak to her.

 

Later, when he returned her call, the director called him for another shot, and he couldn’t speak to her again. After a while, in the midnight, a family member called him and conveyed a bad news. Amar rushed out from Manali, but it was too late. By the time he reached home, his mother had passed away.

 

We thought nothing could make Amar sad or cry on Bigg Boss. But as the actor went back in time, he was full of tears.

 

The Secret Room is being missed in Bigg Boss 5!

Throughout the entire season of Bigg Boss 5, if one has missed anything it’s the trademark ‘Secret Room’, where a participant is kept in alienation, with a special privilege to watch others in action inside the House.

 

Though Season 5 is nearing its finale, celebrity publicist and Bigg Boss specialist Dale Bhagwagar, says its not too late to introduce the ‘Secret Room’ even it is for two-three days. “This could escalate the drama manifold and give the privileged contestant in the room an insight about who is his/her real friend and who is not,” ideates Dale.

 

The Bollywood publicist, who has earlier handled the media for maximum number of controversial celebrities on reality shows including Shilpa Shetty (Big Brother), Ashmit Patel, Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sherlyn Chopra, Diana Hayden (Bigg Boss), has also spoken to contestants Juhi Parmar, Shakti Kapoor and Mahek Chahal before the show rolled this year, and is officially handling Amar Upadhyay during Season 5, and Pooja Misrra for a specific period after she completed her second innings on the reality show.

 

Asked who could be the best bet for getting into the Secret Room at this final stage, Dale says, “It could be anyone from Akashdeep Sky Saigal to Juhi Parmar to Siddharth Sid Bhardwaj. Its obvious, that the other Housemates will gossip about any contestant who goes, least realizing that he/she can come back and beat the daylights out of them just before the finale.”

 

About the Secret Room:

The Secret Room is a special room near the Bigg Boss House. There are times when Bigg Boss directs a Housemate to this room, while other Housemates are given the impression that the person has been evicted or has left the House for good. The Housemate kept in isolation, is given access to past episodes of the show as well as the privilege to secretly watch what is going on in the House. Equipped with all this knowledge, when the Housemate re-enters the main House, all hell breaks lose.

 

Is Sunny Leone scaring off Bollywood actors and producers already?

After being evicted from Bigg Boss, pornstar Sunny Leone targeted contestant Amar Upadhyay, alleging that he kissed her hand and picked her up against her wishes, while carrying out fun tasks assigned to Housemates on the reality show.

In an interview to a prominent newspaper, the pornstar fromCanadamounted a scathing attack on the Indian actor and claimed, “It’s the first time in my entire career that I’ve had to tell a man (Amar) more than once not to be a certain way. That’s why I didn’t exactly know how to handle the situation as it was coming, other than talking to him as an adult. In my real life, no one comes near me or no one even tries to get fresh or do anything – it just doesn’t happen.”

Amar Upadhyay’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar clarified that the actor’s ‘acts’ of kissing Leone on her hand or picking her up during a rain dance on the show, “were strictly part of the ‘entertainment tasks’ given to the Housemates on Bigg Boss.”

Replying to Sunny’s bizarre claims, he said, “Sunny Leone a respected pornstar! She should be careful before uttering such words against a family man and an actor who has been admired and adored on Indian television for his role of the righteous Mihir Virani in Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, which even propelled him as a superstar on television with a huge fan following.”

“Sunny is planning to enter Bollywood. Showing such disrespect for a family man and massacring the reputation of an Indian actor even before she officially signs her first Bollywood movie, could reflect badly on her and scare off most reputed Indian actors and producers,” the publicist pointed out.

Indeed, Sunny seems to have committed professional hara-kiri.Indiais a country of great morality and culture and this frivolous accusation could make her career in Bollywood an uphill task now.

It can be noted here that Bigg Boss co-host Sanjay Dutt, who had rightfully come to Amar’s support during one of the elimination rounds earlier, was said to be planning to work with Sunny. But the rumours have been denied. Quoting a source, a prominent newspaper clarified, “Sanju wouldn’t be comfortable working with Leone and has no interest in signing her on whatsoever.”

The other Bigg Boss co-host Salman Khan, who was said to be considering Sunny for a film, hasn’t announced anything; while Mahesh Bhatt is yet to officially sign her for Jism 2, a movie he discussed with her on entering the Bigg Boss House as a guest last month.
