Priyanka Chopra seems to have a tendency to fall in trouble every time. The actress, who has been making rounds in and out of the hospital, met with a minor accident on the sets of her upcoming film ‘Anjaana Anjaani’. The actress is nursing a foot injury and has been advised complete bed rest for over a week.
Though the actress has sustained no serious injuries, she has been advised not to step her foot out of her room. Said a source, "It was a minor accident and thankfully, with no major injuries to Priyanka. In Bangkok, Priyanka was required to do a scene in the ocean, where she unknowingly stepped on a pointed rock. As a result, she lost her grip and ended up getting bruised on her foot."
"Director Siddharth Anand and the crew ran to her rescue, but luckily, nothing major had happened. The shoot wasn’t stalled. Priyanka just applied an ointment and was back on her feet for the shot. Ranbir Kapoor, reportedly, was not required for the scene and so wasn’t present. Priyanka is currently shooting in Pattaya, Thailand with the rest of the cast and crew," the source added.
This isn’t the first time that Priyanka has had an accident. In the past too, the stunner was hurt while doing stunts for ‘Drona’ and ‘Kaminey’.

"My older sister said, “How you gonna do all this? Don’t you know nuns don’t get paid?” And I was like, “What?”, the actress has quoted.
Otherwise, Mendes felt a convent career would have been perfect for her.

VJ turned actress Shenaz Treasurywala, who plays a simple, sweet girl in forthcoming flick ‘Radio’, says she has rejected quite a few roles requiring her to wear bikinis and do item numbers.. not that she doesn’t wear swimsuits in real life.
"I did reject quite a few offers that required me to wear a bikini and do item numbers. That is not where I want to go with my career. Also, there are lots of bikini and item girls out there. They are fabulous at what they do; I don’t judge them at all. But then I don’t want to join them or compete with them”, said Shenaz.
"I’ll do what the role requires me to do. I am professional. As long as it’s required and the film really needs it. It should not be there just to sell tickets but to tell a story. I am talented, I have a personality and this is my strength," the actress said, while maintaining that she isn’t saying an outright no to donning a particular costume.
Even though she has acted only in a handful of films like "Ishq Vishk", "Hum Tum" and "Aagey Se Right", she feels that being an item girl is not really her goal.
"You get into exposing if all you have is a sexy body; or may be if you are a magnificent dancer and being an item girl is your career goal. It’s just not my thing or my talent," she said.
"I am a good actor and I am a brilliant host. I write well too. I want to concentrate on these three interests and talents," she added.
While Shenaz isn’t keen on wearing skimpy clothes on screen, she isn’t someone who shies away from wearing a bikini in real life. In fact, Shenaz prides herself in being the proud owner of a closet full of bikinis.
"I swim every day and swimming is my salvation. Nothing in the world makes me feel more relaxed. I am a complete water baby and wear a bikini in the pool every day. In fact I have a whole collection of bikinis. So, I’m not prudish or anything," the actress said.
This is the reason why she believes in the saying “never say never”.

I didn’t care where I had to go - I knew the musicians I wanted to work with, the producers and the writers. Wherever my creative energy was at that moment I went," she said.
"London - most of my creative energy comes from there. Every time I’m there, I get really inspired, really creative. It’s crazy because I just get a really good vibe when I’m there."
"Paris - we were shooting my album cover shoot and doing Fashion Week. We were in Paris so we had to. New York - I spent most of the summer here so again we recorded here. LA - I live there and a lot of producers and songwriters live there too. It was just a matter of timing and the people I wanted to work with," she said.

Singer Seal wants to officially adopt wife Heidi Klum’s daughter with Formula One boss Flavio Briatore.
The “Kiss From A Rose” singer is eager to take legal guardianship of five year old Leni - and has already begun the legal proceedings.
"Heidi, Seal and the kids have always been a happy family - in everyday life and in their hearts. Then they should also be happy on paper”, said Heidi’s father Guenther.
Seal - who has three children with Heidi, Henry (4), Johan (3), and 6 week old Lou - has been given the go-ahead by Flavio to adopt Leni.
Seal has always classed Leni as his own daughter, even though he did not father her, and he got together with Heidi while she was still pregnant with Leni.
Seal has previously said: "Leni is my first child. Just like Henry I saw her take shape and move in Heidi’s body. And I was present at her birth, too.
"Leni is my daughter and Henry is my son. I am happy to have two healthy children and that Henry will soon be saying papa to me just like Leni does already," he added.

She said, “There are not many things about me that are like a normal teenage girl. But the one normal teenage girl thing is that I think Zac Efron is the hottest person in the world. I really, really like him.
“And it’s weird. It’s weird because he’s my friend. I think also the reason he is so sexy is because he and Vanessa Hudgens have been together since the first “High School Musical” and I think that’s really cool."

Thanks to the internet. Only because of the internet it has become possible to shop for your desired items while sitting at your home. There are hundreds of online shopping stores where you can choose your desired product and order it for home delivery. These online stores just sell anything. You can buy here goods to be used in daily life to electronic items such as mobiles, televisions and computers to autos also.
Virtually you can shop for anything from these stores but I would like to talk about Sams Club, an online shopping store dedicated to sell electronic items specially televisions and computers.
It has been observed that while buying televisions, more and more people prefer plasma tvs. This could be because of the technical aspects of these tvs. Sams Club is one such shopping store where you can find your much desired plasma tv at a cheaper price. These tvs are from branded and worldwide known manufacturers like Samsung and Panasonic.
You can select a Samsung plasma tv according to your budget. The products have been placed in two categories according to price. First category displays tvs in the range of $501 to $1000 while second category has stored tvs that are priced between $1001 to $5000.
In the similar fashion, if you are planning to buy a Panasonic plasma tv, you can find it according to price, screen size, native resolution as well as contrast ratio. According to screen size, these tvs are placed in two categories- 37’’ to 49’’ and 50’’ and above.
I have tried to elaborate the categories because these categories help us to find the right plasma tv that fits to our need and budget.
You can find more info about plasma tv, how to choose them, viewing distance and something more at the site. And above all, you will find your plasma tv from Samsung or Panasonic.

Bollywood hottie Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapur have apparently not been too willing to be associated with each other, of late. But now, it’s a mobile number which has perhaps gone against their wishes!
In Madhur Bhandarkar’s blockbuster flick ‘Fashion’, there was a scene where Priyanka, who played a model, displayed a mobile number on screen at every audition. And now, Shahid, who plays a film aspirant in Ken Ghosh’s ‘Chance Pe Dance’, has been spotted displaying the same mobile number in the theatrical trailer of the film.
Well, this reportedly happened because both the films have been presented by the same film corporation (UTV), which mistakenly got Priyanka and Shahid displaying the same mobile number!
According to a source, “If it had struck Shahid that the number he was holding on the slate is the same one that Priyanka had used in ‘Fashion’, he would probably have asked the writers to change it. Now he has just to live with the fact that what was once Priyanka’s is now his by default, if not by design.”

Nursing a broken heart post her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor, sassy Deepika Padukone has finally decided to take a break from her hectic schedule. Looking forward to calm her nerves and escape the prying media glares that follow her around in hope of a breakdown, the stunner will be taking a short break and head for a holiday with her family to US.
What’s more is that this will not be a typical ‘lone-time’ vacation; the actress will use the break to attend a cousin’s wedding in US.
Talking about her vacation to a news daily, a close friend of the beauty said, “Deepika has been working incessantly since the last three years. Also, she just broke up with Ranbir, so the break is a welcome relief for her. She signed ‘Om Shanti Om’ in 2006 and the back-to-back shooting schedules for other films left her with no personal time. Even before ‘Om Shanti Om’ released, she was working on ‘Chandni Chowk to China’. As soon as she completed these two films, she got busy with ‘Love Aaj Kal’. Recently, she completed shooting for Farhan’s ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ and Sajid’s ‘Housefull’. When the rest-deprived Deepika got an opportunity to spend time with family, she immediately grabbed it.”
As of now the sassy belle will be spending ten days in US. “Since there is a lot of speculation about her personal life due to her break-up with Ranbir, she wants to come back rejuvenated,” added her friend.
Deepika said, “My brother is getting married. It is the first big wedding in the family and I am looking forward to it. I believe it is very important to make time for family, no matter how hectic one’s life is.”

Luella Bartley, the young British designer whose quirky yet feminine designs have adorned model Kate Moss and singer Lily Allen, has become the latest fashion casualty of the recession.
Bartley’s label, Luella, ceased trading after its ready-to-wear producer closed last month and its main financial backer pulled the plug on any further investment, the company said in a statement.
Luella Bartley Ltd said its key producer in Italy, Carla Carini, unexpectedly closed last month, leaving the brand unable to fulfill its spring/summer 2010 orders.
VSQ Ltd, which also distributes for Armani, advised Luella that it had decided not to invest further in the label, the statement said.
Bartley won Designer of the Year at last year’s British Fashion Awards and her Luella-branded designs are popular with a number of celebrities.
"This is a very disappointing situation for everyone involved with the brand," Luella Bartley said.
Bartley, a former British journalist who founded her company a decade ago, has attracted continued adulation from the fashion press and her celebrity fans.
"We have a number of options open to us and are considering these over the coming months," Bartley said.
Known for its idiosyncratic and humorous mix of punk details and party dresses, Luella is the label of choice for the streetwise British girl-about-town and is regularly worn by London gossip-page regulars Alexa Chung, Allen and the daughters of singer/campaigner Bob Geldof.
The designer once described her look as "the kind of clothes you can get drunk and fall over in."
Luella handbags, hair accessories and leather goods sell well: the dresses - around 500 pounds ($800) each - may not be cheap but they are popular in boutiques as well as in up-market high street stockists and her range of graphic T-shirts provides a "way in" to the brand at a lower price.
Bartley launched Luella in 1999. Her fusion of traditional British influences - Crombie coats and hunting jackets - with quirky modern details chimed with a revived "Cool Britannia" movement. She opened her flagship store on Mayfair’s Brook Street in 2007.
Bollywood actress Lisa Ray will undergo a stem cell transplant to treat her multiple myeloma, an incurable form of blood cancer.
The 37 year old star was diagnosed with the cancer of the bone marrow in June and has been undergoing chemotherapy since July.
Toronto born Lisa made this announcement while visiting the Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School where her film "Water", directed by Deepa Mehta, was screened.
Ray, who was born to a Polish mother and Bengali father, said the process for a stem cell transplant would begin next week in a city hospital.
The procedure would begin by releasing her own stem cells into her blood, then collecting them and later freezing them, she said.
Calling it a "reboot" of her system, she said the process would take up to two weeks to complete.
After this, she would put on a waiting list for a stem cell transplant.
"Healing isn’t just about the physical procedures.
"You need to be emotionally and spiritually and psychologically in the right frame of mind".
She said she was taking a break from acting to complete the treatment.
Multiple myeloma destroys the red blood cells in the body. With advancement in treatment, a multiple myeloma patient can now live up to 20 years.
Ray, who lives in the Etobicoke suburb of the city, has been sharing her experiences on a blog called The Yellow Diaries.
Ray recently appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) gala of her film "Cooking with Stella", directed by Deepa Mehta.
Shot mostly in the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi, the film is a hilarious comedy featuring Ray as the wife of a Canadian diplomat (played by Don McKellar) posted in New Delhi.
Seema Biswas plays the role of the wily cook Stella who tries to fool her Canadian masters.

And they be in the form of flowers, perfumes, game consoles or electronic items like mobile phones, digital cameras, laptops etc. It all depends upon the gift buyer.
Here I would like to talk about a web portal which is meant to fulfill this purpose. At Save Buckets, you will find a collection of gifts and gift ideas for every occasion. It seems the portal is dedicated to people to select a right gift for an occasion. For example, if you planning to buy a gift for a boy, you can visit toys and games section where you can choose from top toys products for boys like Bakugan Battle Pack, GX Racers Tightrope Terror, Transformers Movie 2 Voyagers Figures. Similarly you can choose from Go Go Pets Hamsters, Hasbro Monopoly City 3D Board Game, or something else if you are looking for a gift for a girl.
It’s not always necessary to buy a gift for someone else. You can buy some gifts for yourself too. What about buying a digital camera for yourself. At Save Buckets you find some suitable and cheap digital cameras to choose from. Some of the products in digital cameras category are Kodak Easy Share, Olympus X-42, Samsung S1075 and Vivitar V4090.
There is one electronic product which has influenced everyone’s life. That is computer. These days laptops are replacing desktop computers. This is because of their portability. At Save Buckets, you can shop for laptops and netbooks. Some of the popular buys at this shopping portal in the laptops and netbooks category include Aser Aspire One, Disgo Net Browser etc.
And one more plus point that I noticed about this online gift shopping store is price comparision about the products. You can compare price of your selected products with the market price. You can compare price of similar products from different manufacturers too before selecting your desired one.

This year’s Christmas is surely going to be very special for Kareena Kapoor. The actress is already looking forward to the release of her much-awaited flick ‘3 Idiots’ on December 25, and now the latest news suggests that she’s also awaiting to receive a special X’mas tree that will come shipped in from UK.
Reports reveal that recently when Bebo was in London to promote her film ‘Kurbaan’, she indulged in shopping at Harrods, and the actress fell in love with a huge fir tree. So, she decided to ship it back, instead of having an artificial tree in parlour this time.
Kareena said, "I am very excited about the natural fir tree I chose from Harrods. They have a wonderful Christmas department there. I did all my X’mas shopping there. For the last 20 years, we’ve had Christmas plum pudding shipped from there, as it’s my mom’s favourite and the best in this world. Normally, we have fake fir trees for Christmas at home. They are not too large and look synthetic. So when I saw this huge, beautiful, lush green, natural tree, I couldn’t resist it! I bought it and had it shipped back through Karan’s production team as I couldn’t carry it back myself."
Meanwhile, Kareena is looking forward to the release of ‘3 Idiots’, also starring Aamir Khan.
Singer Dannii Minogue, who had vowed never to marry again, has had a change of heart and is considering to tie the knot with model boyfriend Kris Smith.
The X-Factor judge admits that the previous relationships had shaken her faith in love but the 38 year old singer believes that she has found the man with whom she wants to live "forever" in Smith.
Minogue was previously married to actor Julian McMahon and was engaged to racing driver Jacques Villeneuve.
"It’s (marriage) a possibility. I never thought I’d be saying this but I’ve found the guy I want to be with forever."
"I’d given up on love but then, as a few girlfriends had told me, it’s when you’ve given up looking that you meet that special someone," she said.
The Australian beauty said she was too scared to approach Smith, when she first saw him and it was a friend who introduced the couple.
"I wouldn’t have even spoken to him on that fateful night had the friend I was with not caught us looking at each other, finally saying, I can’t stand this anymore. I’m going to invite him over.”
"I was mortified, saying “Don’t! I won’t speak to him if you do!” And even when Kris did introduce himself, I acted really cool, thinking we’d have nothing in common. It just goes to prove how wrong you can be."
Victoria Beckham asks husband David Beckham for advice on her fashion range and says he fancies "dresses" designed by her.
According to reports the singer-turned-fashion designer’s fashion range and dress designs are popular with celebrities including Elle Macpherson, Dannii Minogue and Heidi Klum.
"I show him the dresses. He’s incredibly supportive - he finds the dresses sexy because they are leaving something to the imagination, as opposed to being overtly sexy," she said.
Speaking about her recent appearance on the cover of elite fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar, the 35 year old admitted that she wanted the photographs to turn out well so she could look back at them with pride when she is older.
"I didn’t want to rely on retouching. I wanted to look at the pictures in 20 years’ time and say, “Wow, look - after three kids, I don’t look bad.” I’m not a supermodel, I make the best out of what I was given and work hard.
"I felt vulnerable. I’d never known nerves like it in my life. The night before, I got nodules in my throat. I’d never felt such anxiety," said the mother of three sons - Brooklyn (10), Romeo (7) and Cruz (4).

Vidya Balan seems to be extremely excited about her upcoming flick ‘Paa’, and the actress recently talked about her experience of working with the two superstar Bachchans.
Vidya, who plays Amitabh Bachchan’s mother in ‘Paa’, has revealed that she’s very impressed by Abhishek’s caring behaviour towards his father. According to the actress, during the shooting of the film, Abhi used to take such good care of Pa Amitabh that she herself wishes to have a son like Abhishek in real life.
"I would prefer a son like Abhishek. I have seen him with his father on the sets, he was so nice to his father that I was touched," said Vidya.
Talking about the film, "The film is all about Auro and all through the film there is a certain sensibility about Auro, but no sympathy is shown towards the 13 year old progeric child in the film," said Vidya.
When asked about her experience of playing a mother of a progeric child, Vidya confessed that she wasn’t really sure about doing the role when was approached by the director for the same. Vidya says, "Initially, I wondered how to do the role as I didn’t have that motherly instinct. But while working on the film I realised what motherhood is."
However, Vidya added that playing Amitabh’s mother wasn’t difficult at all. "I was a bit concerned initially but it was smooth sail once we started working together," Vidya says.
The secret to supermodel Elle Macpherson’s ageless beauty is simple as she believes loving and laughing keep her healthy.
The 45 year old supermodel says that she has maintained her immaculate looks because she spends time on her own to relax, meditate and laugh.
"I take time for myself, I meditate and reconnect and it keeps me healthy. I want to be around for a long time and I need a healthy body, and a healthy body means making sure I get enough sleep, enough vitamins, eat properly, laugh a lot and love a lot," Macpherson said.
"I have less time than I used to, that’s for sure. Physical fitness is important to me and not because I need to maintain the shape people think I should be, but because I enjoy being physical from a deeper perspective. When I’m in London I work with my trainer James Duigan at Bodyism, otherwise I surf, ski, water ski and hike," the model added.
The supermodel is a mother to two sons 11 year old Flynn Alexander and six year old Aurelius Cy Andrea with her ex-boyfriend Arpad Busson.
