Sonam KapoorSonam Kapoor may be just two films old, but she is choosy about her roles and has drafted strict guidelines for herself to sign movies. The young actress is, however, willing to make exceptions if the man opposite her happens to be Robert De Niro or Shah Rukh Khan.

“Well, why would one actually ask questions if paired opposite Robert De Niro?” asks Sonam with a mischievous smile. “You should consider yourself plain fortunate to just share a common frame with him. In fact, I will be happy to even walk past a frame featuring him. No questions asked. Period.”

Sonam teamed up with Ranbir Kapoor in her debut vehicle Saawariya and she was seen with Abhishek Bachchan in her second film Dilli 6. She is now looking forward to a movie with superstar Shah Rukh.

“He is another man for whom I will be so very willing to ignore my rule book. I would be more than happy to go ahead and sign a film if Shah Rukh happens to be my hero,” says Sonam, a self-confessed Shah Rukh fan.

“There are exceptions that one makes about the size and content of the role when it comes to working with legendary actors; De Niro and Shah Rukh just fit the bill,” she said.

However, when it comes to working on films with anyone lesser, Sonam certainly has her do’s and don’ts in place.

“I don’t intend to do films where all I am required to do is to dance in four songs and enact a couple of emotional scenes. By no means am I looking at that kind of cinema,” she said.

Though the formal announcement of her next film is yet to take place, reports are that Sonam’s next will be for her dad’s production house. The film is called Ayesha and is based on Jane Austen’s novel Emma.

According to industry sources, Sonam will be making a complete about turn from her Saawariya and Delhi 6 image and take on a completely new ultra-chic avtar. The film will feature Abhay Deol along with newcomer Arunodoy Singh, who will soon make his debut with Sikandar.

Sonam and Imran Khan are meanwhile reportedly being considered by Kunal Kohli for his next film that would be directed by his assistant Danish Aslam. However, confirmation is still awaited around this young love story.


Pink Panther Of BollywoodPink… a colour that defines feminism! It’s not just a favourite amongst girls but hot with men too. Even some of our hottest Bollywood hunks love Pink and make no bones about sporting the ‘girly’ colour!

From Akshay Kumar to Hrithik Roshan, Pink has found a place in our actor’s wardrobes. According to our Indian designers Pink is the new Black. Pink is very much in fashion and thus no one is shy to sport it. Fashionista Puja Nayyar tells us, “One can safely say that pink is hot with men globally. I saw entire ranges of jumpers and cardigans for men in pink recently. But maybe pale pink is more a man’s color and he will not go for a hot pink.”

Now that’s a fashion designers take on men and pink… flip on as we present our hot actors in Pink and tell us what you think. Should men be wearing Pink?

Kangana RanautAfter completing Hritik Roshan’s Kites, Kangana Ranaut is hardly having any films in her kitty. Despite having scored a solo hit this year with Raaz 2, not many film makers are rushing in to sign her.

According to the latest buzz, producers who go to sign are told by her to sign her boyfriend Adhyayan Suman as her co-star as she feels she shares the best on screen chemistry with him.

But she fails to understand that though the guy is a good actor he does not suit the kind of market Bollywood producers want to target.

Ash is all set to have a baby. She revealed that she and her hubby Abhishek talk of babies and motherhood. She said that it would be a gift and blessing from God if it happens. She added that they are looking forward to have babies and would cherish the experience.

Abhi-AshSpeculations around Ash-Abhi kept going ever since they married almost two years ago. Ash proved the critics wrong by continuing acting career even after marriage and she received lots of accolades for her her recent film Jodhaa Akbar. Her Hollywood film Pink Panther 2 was also premiered in many international film festivals and she has been named the Most Bankable Indian star in Hollywood by Forbes magazine. Just when her career is beginning to boom, she has announced her desire to start a family.

Amir Khan GhajiniThe war of words between Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan shows no signs of ending. Just days after making peace with SRK on his birthday Aamir has again taken a dig at Shahrukh. On the question of him being referred to as the real Shah Rukh Khan‘King Khan’ after his performance in Ghajini Aamir said he was never interested in kicking Shahrukh out of the pedestal and never believed Shahrukh was the ‘King Khan’.

Aamir said that the only actor who can be referred to as the king in the industry is Amitabh Bachchan. The perfectionist actor added that Big B had done some fantastic work throughout his career and neither he or anyone else could expect to see the kind of stardom that the senior Bachchan has seen. Well this time Aamir is the one who is firing the shots and Shahrukh unfortunately is on the receiving end.

Kareena KapoorKareena Kapoor says plans of her marriage to Saif Ali Khan may not happen for at least two years as her career is going great guns.

Kareena Kapoor, who has received as many as four awards in just one month, says plans of her marriage to Saif Ali Khan may not happen for at least two years as her career is going great guns.

“It won’t happen for the next two years for sure. Am I crazy to get married now when so many wonderful things are happening to my career? Saif himself is ultra-busy trying to set up his production house. Marriage can wait. I’m just happy to have him by my side. I’ve got the best guy any girl can ever have.

“Right now I’m so busy I don’t have time to sleep properly. I haven’t even had time to move into my new house,” said Kareena.

Overwhelmed after receiving four awards, she said: “Who doesn’t like attention, recognition and awards? I’ve got four awards in a month beginning with the environment award I got from Erin Brockovich, then two youth icon awards from Rotary International and Stardust. And now on Tuesday I was honoured by FICCI, which Yash Chopra gave to me.

“My mother gets exasperated each time I bring home another trophy. Saif wants to know where I’m going to keep all of them. I’ve set aside a whole enclave for trophies and awards. I love looking at them. One day my children are going to look at them and be proud of me.”

Now, after a long time, Kareena will be in Mumbai for a month. “I’ve a month-long schedule of Rensil (D’Silva’s) film coming up in Mumbai.”

Saif and Kareena returned home to Mumbai this week from Delhi without completing the shooting for D’Silva’s film. “We never expected such crowds. They were everywhere. And it was impossible to shoot,” she says, sounding not the least put off. “Those people who love me out there keep me going. I love my fans and awards.”

And now Delhi will have to be fudged in the Mumbai schedule of D’Silva’s film.

The extent of the surging crowds in Delhi in the key shooting spots like Jama Masjid and Janpath for D’Silva’s untitled film was so huge and unmanageable that the unit has returned without shooting the required sequences.

Back in Mumbai after a week of futile shooting, Kareena says: “Everywhere we went there were these huge numbers of people who had come to see Saif and me. They were very sweet, very well-behaved. But unfortunately the number of people in key places like Jama Masjid and Janpath was always too high to shoot properly.”

As a result, there was almost no shooting. “We did some shots. But it was impossible to shoot with wide-angle lenses because the crowds were everywhere. We’ll now have to recreate some of the Delhi sequences in Mumbai.”

Kareena is certainly not unhappy about the attention she got in Delhi. “The people in Delhi were so warm. It just made me realise how much of a responsibility I have towards my audience. At this stage of my career I’d rather take another holiday than do a bad film.”
