In Pics: Katrina Kaif endorsing Nakshatra Jewellery





Monday, December 29

Katrina Kaif shines with Nakshatra

Very recently Katrina Kaif who voted the sexiest woman by a UK based magazine and now it seems that she is quite allured by the tag. And after dethroning beauty queen Aishwarya Rai from the high chair of a brand ambassador of a famous diamond jewellery brand (Nakshatra), Katrina surely is flying high.

So how was it like to replace Ash to grab this plum project?

"It is nothing of that sort. It's just like any other profession. Nobody replaces anyone but the people behind the brand plan accordingly, looking for a change and keeping in mind the freshness and feel of their product. Aishwarya certainly looked awesome in earlier advertisements and now even I'm happy to be associated with it," Katrina gives a politically correct answer.

So what is it that Katrina looks for while endorsing a brand? Is it money or the happiness of throwing out the existing brand ambassador or is it something else?

"A lot of offers come my way every now and then, but I am very choosy. That's the reason you see me in very few ads. I prefer to work in them only if I feel they are worth it. I take my own decisions with a little research on that product, a bit of satisfaction and finally my gut feeling. I don't consult anyone before signing on the dotted line," says she.

Katrina has surely come a long way and needs no godfathers anymore.

Aishwarya Rai says no to fairness creams

Aishwarya Rai has recently turned down the offer to endorse a fairness cream of a global cosmetic company.

She has taken a firm stand that she will not endorse skin-lightening products in a country, which is obsessed with fair skin and discriminates against women with dark skin.

After Aishwarya turned down the offer, the cosmetic company signed Sonam Kapoor to endorse their product. The cosmetic company is positioning Sonam Kapoor as a “young face”, as opposed to Aishwarya Rai who may now be called the “older face” of the cosmetic industry.

“When Aishwarya Rai refused, the cosmetic company was forced to get Sonam Kapoor into the picture. They need an Indian face for the promotion of the fairness cream and Sonam Kapoor was the next ideal choice,” reveals a source.

Yama Sushi - Japanese Restaurants in Mission Viejo

Want to go for a wonderful evening somewhere?
Want to go to a place where one can have all comforts under one roof ?

If yes, then you have to search for a place where such pleasures can be had with peace. People usually select a good restaurant. But question arises, how to get such a place, whom to ask for, where to go etc.. etc..

One can try all available resources in surrounding. If we go for a general perception, we hear that the coastal areas are likely to have great pleasure in it.

If you talk about such places, then it’s Japan which comes automatically in mind. And whenever there is a search for Japanese restaurants then the name which comes in mind is Japanese Restaurant Mission Viejo.

Japanese Restaurant Mission Viejo is provided with all the luxurious facilities which can be termed latest in the world of comfort.

Another name which is famous for the food types and comfort quality for tourists is Japanese Food Orange County.

It would be very unfair if we don’t mention the name of Sushi Orange County in the context of food and romantic environment.

And now I am leaving here a teaser idea. If you have a girlfriend or a boyfriend and you want her/ him to give a pleasant surprise then Sushi Orange County could be a destined place.

Shah Rukh Khan among most powerful in world

According to Newsweek magazine, Shah Rukh Khan ranks as the 41st most powerful person in the World. He is one place above Osama Bin Laden and one place below Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon.com.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan have been ranked among the 50 most powerful people. US President-elect Barack Obama topped the list.

Placing Mrs. Gandhi at the 17th spot, the magazine said: “Although India’s political scene is driven by factions, Congress remains the strongest national force, and the Italian-born wife of Rajiv Gandhi rules it unchallenged. In the world’s largest democracy, she’s queen.” Shah Rukh Khan, ranked 41st, was described as the “King of Bollywood.

Pakistan army chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, who controlled the country’s nuclear weapons, was placed 20th on the list of the global “power elite” at the beginning of 2009 in the magazine’s January issue.

Barack Obama, who scripted history by becoming the first black-American to be voted to the White House, was followed by Chinese President Hu Jintao, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, German Chancellor Angela Markel and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. A surprise inclusion, which the magazine admitted was subjective, was Osama Bin Laden, termed a “global terrorist.” North Korean dictator Jim Jong II also found a place.

Others on the list include the Dalai Lama, the former U.S. president, Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary, Iranian strongman Ayatollah Ali Khemenei, Saudi King Abdullah-bin-Abdul Aziz-al Saud, American General David Petraeus, Iraqi leader Nouri al-Maliki, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Pope Benedict XVI, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and popular show host Oprah Winfrey.

Schools for Medical Assistants

A Medical Assistant is not new to us. In fact, it’s a post which used to be there since very early days, but the name is revised. It may be named as ward secretary to some places; but the kind of job responsibilities are the same.

Medical Assistants are responsible for the routine administrative and clinical tasks in the hospitals and clinics. They are responsible for the smooth running of the healthcare departments, hospitals etc.

A Medical Assistant shouldn’t be confused with a physician assistant. Medical assistants don’t have any duties related with the diagnosis and treatment of the patients whereas physicians do have that sometimes.

In many countries, Medical Assistants are taken on the basis of their past experience/ tests/ training program. But there are some countries which require the candidate who has fulfilled a formal course designed for the medical students only.

Medical Assistants who can deal with both the administrative and clinical duties are called as generalists. Hence, medical assistants have very clearly defined job responsibilities.

There are schools which provide certificate courses for such purposes. The courses are provided online too. The school which is well known among such Medical assistant schools is St. Augustine School of Medical Assistants. This school is provided with the provision of saving time, money and resources.

Model turned actress Anushka Sharma, who debuted opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”, reveals that she would like her dream guy to be like Surinder Sahni, the middle-class nice guy played by the superstar in the film. She also says she never dreamt of becoming an actress.

“I would love to have someone like Surinder. He should be a nice man. I believe in having a man who is beautiful and strong from inside. Inner beauty is most important. But I found Suri to be handsome and good-looking too,” Anushka said.

The model-turned-actress considers herself “fortunate” to have landed a debut with Yash Raj Films and, that too, opposite Shah Rukh, but Anushka says she had never planned to become a Bollywood heroine. “I never dreamt of becoming an actress; so it is not a dream come true for me,” she said.

Anushka, who is under a three-film contract with the Yash Raj banner, said she would be concentrating on those projects for now. “I have signed a three-film contract with Yash Raj. But I am free to do any other project if I wish,” she clarified.

Mohanlal becomes Lieutenant Colonel in Territorial Army

48-year-old, Malayalam super star, Mohanlal has been made an honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Territorial Army.

Mohanlal will be the first actor in the country to get such a prestigious title from the army. The only other celebrity to get this title is former cricket captain Kapil Dev.

The age limit for joining the TA, which has been fixed at 42, has been relaxed for the star who is 48. There is precedence for this as Kapil Dev was too over aged when he was commissioned by TA.

It is perhaps the two army roles that he donned - in Keerthichakra and Kurukshetra - that led to this new development. Keerthichakra depicted the army’s anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir, while Kurukshetra dealt with the Kargil war.

According to Major Ravi, who has directed both the films, “It will be a great honour. It is also heartening to know that I have been instrumental in Lal getting the honour”.

The director will soon start working on a film on the Kandahar Hijack, featuring Mohanlal and Kamal Haasan.

The Territorial Army is a voluntary part-time civilian force that plays a key role in the defence of the country. It provides an opportunity to civilians to receive military training and also provides the country with a reserve force that can assist the regular army during operations.

Lakshmi Rai involved with M S Dhoni

Lakshmi RaiOne of the hottest gossip now is about Southern sensation, Lakshmi Rai’s affair with Team India’s captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Apparently Lakshmi Rai was spotted dining with M. S. Dhoni in a hotel in Chennai few days back. But the actress denies being in any sort of love relationship with the cricketer and claiming all the rumors as baseless, which carries no truth.

Lakshmi accepts that both are only good friends. “We struck a chord during the IPL, but just like any other friends, we don’t need to keep in touch every day since we understand each other’s professional commitments,” she says.

Regarding the news that she met him at the time of the recent test match, she quipped, “No. I didn’t meet him during this tour since I was busy shooting elsewhere,”

“The rumours are baseless. They started when I participated in a couple of events with Dhoni during the IPL campaign. There were more rumours after he came for my birthday party”, she explains.

Well, what is being said is just a rumour or something else, you decide it. I am giving you a hint here. When a media fellow asked her, “what would be your reactions if Dhoni proposed you?”
And the beautiful actress was left wordless!!

Is ASIN the next Bollywood Queen

The race for the top slot among the bollywood actresses seems to be getting hotter and hotter day by day. Till few weeks ago, the field seemed to be clear for Katrina Kaif. But that was before Fashion and Dostana happened and Priyanka Chopra was back in reckoning.


Now with the release of Ghajini around the corner, the film's heroine Asin, seems to be tipped to be the next big thing that has happened to Hindi cinema. Even before the release of Ghajini, the actress has already been signed on by Vipul Shah for his London Dreams where she is paired opposite Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan.

It reveals quite a lot for the actress, who has already made waves without a single release whatsoever. She has already started acting like a B town heroine she is believed to have sat through the entire shooting of a song which was being picturised on Ghajini's second heroine, Jiah Khan. Could be she was checking out the competition.

But with reports of her having endeared herself to all her co stars, the actress seems set to go places. We are sure that Katrina will be feeling a little insecure. And there is one more top class contender whomwe can’t ignore and she is Deepika Padukone.

Now Deepika, who has been the face of countless brands, graces the fashion and lifestyle magazine- The Man. While she is lending her pretty face to the latest edition of the famous lifestyle magazine 'The Man', within inside pages she reveals some facts about her day to day life.


The Padukone babe speaks about how she manages to stay fit despite a hectic schedule. Not just that, she also shares some of her beauty tips with the readers. Besides all of this, she gives the readers the actual reasons for her to be associated with a million brands that she is endorsing.

Deepika surely knows what it means to be seen at the right place at the right time. After all, being the cover girl of a top class fashion and lifestyle magazine, weeks before the release of her next flick Chandni Chowk To China will surely get her all the attention that she deserves.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and John Abraham in Hook Ya Crook

Director, David Dhawan is going to opt a U-turn from his genre of comedies and has decided to direct a serious movie titled Hook Ya Crook. The movie stars John Abraham and Indian Cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Hook Ya Crook is an Indianised version of the famous 1981 hit Escape to Victory which was penned by Rensil D’ Silva. Escape to Victory focussed on a football match and featured the football legend Pele.

Hook Ya Crook revolves around Cricket. The prison set is currently being built by art director Samir Chanda in Hyderabad. ‘Hook Ya Crook’ features a big cricket match as the climax. Dhoni is playing a leading role in the film.

Sources reveal, “UTV, who had earlier made Goal, a football-based film, want Hook Ya Crook to be an authentic cricket film. The climax will be a huge cricket match like Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan. Indian cricket captain Dhoni is being brought on board to share the field and cinema space with the rest of the cast and also to help his teammates give a believable spin to the game.”
According to the director of the film David Dhawan, “Cricket does play a very important part in my film. This would be my most uncharacteristic film, very different from the comedies I am associated with”.

The irony is that even if they forget, the cine goers and the Box-Office collections' record will just not allow them to do so! We are indeed talking about the smash-hit and the iconic film Jab We Met and its supersonic director Imtiaz Ali, who is the 'cover-guy' on the latest edition of the lifestyle magazine 'Andpersand'.

At first, one is kind of surprised and puzzled as to what made the 'Andpersand' guys choose Imtiaz Ali as its cover-boy. But all your surprises and puzzles get laid to rest when you read the interview, which is more of an inner-view of this man called Imtiaz Ali...truly, like never before.

On his own admission, "Maybe it's because I just can't stop being fascinated by women. I am in love with them".

Ali's smash-hit Jab We Met offered the viewer a romantic reel walk-through the slice of life, while his interview offers the reader a real-life walkthrough the slice of Imtiaz's life! Imtiaz speaks all about his start toll where he has reached today, the process of fulfilling his destiny, his first hand count of being in love with love, his experience of many journeys and cultures etc.

Aishwarya does insignificant role

There has been too much discusison in recent times over Aishwariya Rai's decision to play such a insignificant role in the latest Pink Panther Series. The film is ready for release and our wonderful Ash is quite excited about having starred in it.

When the first posters of the film, Pink Panther 2 were out, Ash hardly even figured in them. One wondered then, why the actress agreed to play such a minor role in a Hollywood film. But the star has broken her silence on the matter and said that the only reason she agreed to do the movie was because she loved Peter Sellers. In fact, Sellers happens to be one of her favourites since she was a kid. She admits that the film did not require her to do much and hence she enjoyed just hanging around and being part of the project. She candidly admits that the project is not about her and she is quite comfortable with that.

Well said Ash!!
This is what we call, “Bade Log Badi Baten”!!

Kareena Kapoor plays a surgeon in Kambakth Ishq

Kareena Kapoor plays a surgeon who moonlights as a super-model in Kambakth Ishq.

A surgeon who's a super-model? It sounds nonesense. "Yeah my character flies to Italy to become a super-model to support herself financially. I didn't want to play the character looking like an international model because she's basically in another profession. So she can't really have the figure of Victoria Beckham, can she? I had to look more filled up. Again, for my next release Main Aur Mrs Khanna with Salman, I play a wife. So I wanted to look more filled up. Not that wives can't be curvaceous. The one I played in Golmaal Returns certainly was."

For her forthcoming films 'Size 0' is out. No more international anorexic looks for her. Kareena Kapoor is down to a healthy normal desi girl's model-like figure.

Reason? "My forthcoming releases required me to get back to a fuller shape."

Now Kareena has decided to hold steady with her new weight. And its 54 Kg.

Diana Penty replaces Deepika Padukone for Maybelline

Gorgeous and uber hot Indian model Diana Penty has become the latest buzzword that’s taken the modeling world by storm. Diana has recently replaced Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone as the new face of international cosmetics brand Maybelline New York. With this, she joins the ranks of international supermodels like Adriana Lima and Christy Turlington.

“I feel great to get this opportunity to endorse a brand that is so vibrant and truly multi-ethnic. For me it is not only about whom I am replacing but it's about being on the same platform as international models and get international exposure,” said Penty.

Penty is a student of the Elite Model Management and its CEO Sushma Puri was all praise for the young model.

'Diana has a face that is very versatile and appeals to both Indian and international markets and she is also young, beautiful and confident. This makes her the ideal choice for any international brand,' Puri said.

Deepika Padukone was named the brand ambassador of Maybelline in June 2007.

First concert in Mumbai after terrorist attacks

British Rock band Jethro Tull and Indian Musician Anoushka Shankar are to perform in a concert, the first to be organized in Mumbai since the terrorist attacks that killed over 183 people.

Another concert, The Live Earth concert had been cancelled in the wake of the attacks.


“Some people might consider it disrespectful that we are having a concert but hopefully a majority will realize what this is about and what it says,” Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson said at a press conference.

The band, on a tour of New Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore, was scheduled to perform in Mumbai last week. The Nov. 29 event was postponed following the attacks.

Proceeds from the Mumbai concert would go to a charity set up for victims of the attacks.

For Anoushka Shankar, the concert is a sort of catharsis.

“As a musician, this is how I speak, how I express the anger within me,” she said.

“Our entire tour has been changed by these events and even though the structure of the concert may remain the same, emotionally perhaps we are saying a lot more,” she said.

Recognized as a consummate performer and composer of Indian classical music and forward thinking genres, Anoushka is a unique figure in world music. Taught by her father and musical guru, Ravi Shankar, Anoushka continues to blaze new creative trails, performing across the globe in settings ranging from jazz and traditional Indian ensembles, to symphony orchestras.
