might not have thought that her hasty comment about wanting divorce would spread like a fire in the jungle and media, reporters, , family would chased her crazily to enquire about the truth. She had to pay a heavy price for her remark updated on Facebook. Now her parents are coming forward to clear the weather about her divorce.
Thursday, November 25, 2010
She says, “My six sisters and I shared a couple of dolls between us. We had our tea parties and our fights too. I remember one time, when my sister, the one who’s a year older than me, and I were tugging at a doll and ripped her arm off. That Barbie was never replaced. It remains one of my most poignant memories.”
Meanwhile, Katrina is gearing up for the release of her next film, Farah Khan’s much-anticipated Tees Maar Khan (TMK). “These days, I’m being called Barbie and Sheila, half and half,” she laughs, referring to the sizzling song from the film, ‘Sheila ki jawaani…’. “Yes, I’ve worn a half-sari, but the song is not so much about clothes as it is about the attitude. That’s Farah’s strength,” she points out. It’s an item song featuring a struggling actor with big Bollywood dreams.
Did Sheila bring back any memories of her struggling days? “Nooo,” she chuckles. “It’s a tongue-in-cheek take on our item songs and Sheila is a naïve and not-too-clever girl. There was no emotional connect. But I had a blast shooting it and the train sequences.”
Rumours have it that she’s done a Chaiya chaiya… atop a train. “I didn’t,” she retorts. “But there are key visuals of the train and the climax was shot around it with me hanging out and Akshay (Kumar) supporting my weight. No, I wasn’t apprehensive because action scenes with Akshay are always safe. He’s experienced and careful and I trust him immensely. In fact, Akshay and I have had an amazing run at the box-office with films such as Namaste London (2007) and Singh Is Kingg (2008) and I hope it continues with TMK. It would be a great way to end the year!”
The Christmas release, however, has thrown Katrina’s holiday plans for a six. “I’ve made no plans since TMK opens on December 24 and I may be required to do a bit of work promoting it during the New Year too,” she reasons. “So Christmas will be here this year. May be one of my sisters will join me.”
Will she be seen on reality shows to promote the film; KBC, MasterChef, or Bigg Boss? “Maybe one or two, but we won’t overdo it. I have no idea which ones we’ll be on.”
There’s talk of a sequel? “It’s the current fad and Farah’s call,” she says. “I’d love to work with her again. But for now, the only sequel I’m doing is Dostana 2 and I’m really excited about it.” No Race 2? “No,” she clarifies. “Remember I was killed in a car crash at the end of Part 1? And since the follow-up has no ghost track, I really can’t make a spirited comeback.” Touché!
The total money invested in the film is Rs.18 crore. Co-produced by Kunal Kohli Productions and Reliance Big Pictures, the movie is releasing across 750 screens in India.
‘It’s true that ‘Break Ke Baad’ has already recovered its production cost including marketing costs. Being a hyped project, the digital rights (satellite, music and video) were sold at a lucrative price,’ said Priti Shahani of Reliance Big Pictures.
‘Break Ke Baad’ also had marketing tie ups with brands like Kit Kat and Close Up. The brands have spent close to Rs.2 crore on TV spends in prime slots for the movie.
Directed by debutant Danish Aslam, the romantic comedy about space in relationships, also stars Sharmila Tagore, Navin Nischol, Shahana Goswami and Lilette Dubey.
”Break Ke Baad’ is the youngest film of the season. The youngsters of today will definitely be able to relate to ‘Break Ke Baad’. It’s a fresh, fun film,’ said Kohli.
The family is totally devastated by this awkward revelation by the oldest member. Sheila says that she loves to have sex and make men happy and so enjoys doing it as a prostitute and she is proud of it. The lady, who got married twice and got widowed twice, says that there is nothing to feel ashamed about it.
Katie’s sister Natalie was quoted saying that they were totally shocked on hearing this and they have disowned her. But, Sheila says that the family is over-reacting on such a simple issue and Katie’s mom and her daughter Diana has behaved very badly with her. She says that it is Diana, who wants her daughter Katie to win ‘X-Factor’ and is using the news to get some public sympathy for her daughter.
However, Sheila sounded very caring and loving towards her granddaughter Katie saying that she also wants her to win because Katie has inherited the singing talent from her.
Sheila has claimed sleeping with a guy as young as 23 years of age and also with a man of 66 years. She said that she started this profession two years back because she started feeling very lonely after the death of her husband Noel Coupe in 2004.
The lady says that men are satisfied with her service and for this she maintains her body by undergoing regular exercise under the guidance of her trainer. She said that her family’s behavior has hurt her very much as she expected an unconditional love and support from them.

Amisha whenever she hit's a low, she bounced back with one major hit that saved her the blues. Be it Gadar or then Humraaz. Now she is reapeating this in the form of historical The Rising a Ketan Mehta and Aamir Khan's projects. Amisha Patel was born on 19th June 1979 in Mumbai. For studies she went to abroad. Determination has been one of her strengths. Even when she was in Standard IV, Amisha was sure that she wanted to be the head girl of the school. When she told her mother about it, she laughed it off. Amisha worked towards her goal by improving upon her academic record and by the time she reached Standard XII, she became one. While doing Economics in the United States, Amisha kept herself busy teaching classical dance in her free time. She did join a financial company but a regular nine to five job couldn't hold her for long. She joined Satyadev Dubey's theatre group and started doing plays after convincing her parents a process that took a year. Armed with a foreign degree and an ultra respectable family background Amisha Patel was to be the CEO of the family business. Fate have something to do with her. Director Rakesh Roshan had already signed Kareena Kapoor opposite his son and had even started shooting with her. When that association did not work out Roshan remembered his fascination with his school friend Amit Patel's limpid-eyed daughter at a sangeet celebration. Rakesh Roshan even remarked that if he ever made a film with his son he would take her as a heroine. And this way she got her debut film Kaho Naa Pyar Hai. After that she had given other hits also like Gadar, Humraaz. In 2003 she had a Parwane which was a flop. Amisha Patel believe what is in destiny no one can take away from you. She replaced Priyanka Chopra in Humraaz. In her debut film 'KNPH' she replaced Kareena. Amisha Patel has the best collection of bags and belts in tinselville. Whenever she goes abroad she shops for expensive accessories. Her collection includes from Louis Vuitton, Salvotore Feragamo, Christian Dior, Gucci and Versace. Her forth coming films are Vikram Bhatt's Elaan in which she is playing a journalist. Then The Rising for which she is very thrilled to work with Aamir Khan. She is playing an innocent bengali girl, Jwala who gone through a devastating time before a Britisher comes into her life. These days her personel life is also has a lot going on. She had Vikram Bhatt eating out of her pretty palms in venice and now when back home its Abhishek Bachchan who is showing a lot of interest in her. Both tuned in Morocco when they were there for Film Festival few months ago.

International Stardom Devdas, in which Aishwarya joined Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit, was a huge hit, lavishly produced as it was. The film attracted overseas attention as well, receiving a special screening at the Cannes Film Festival.
Rai was becoming an international star rather than simply a Bollywood one. In 2003, Rai was a member of the jury at Cannes. In 2004, she was chosen by TIME Magazine's Asian Edition as one of Asia's "100 Most Influential People." Rai was the subject of a 60 Minutes profile on January 2, 2005 - "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World." A month later she appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, and on April 25, 2005, she was featured on Oprah's "Women Across the Globe" segment. A wax figure of Rai is on display in London's Madame Tussaud's wax museum.
Although frequently the subject of gossip column speculation about an imminent Hollywood career, it was only in 2004 that Rai finally acted in a foreign film. British director Gurinder Chadha hired her to play the heroine in Bride and Prejudice, a Hollywood-funded but Bollywood-ized version of Jane Austen's classic novel, Pride and Prejudice. The movie did well at the box office and Aishwarya's Hollywood profile rose a notch.
Rai is now said to be signed for another Hollywood movie, Rolland Joffe's project Singularity. She will star opposite Brendan Fraser.
She is in the cast for The Last Legion co-starring Colin Firth and Ben Kingsley.
She recently (summer of 2005) completed filming on director Jagmohan Mundhra's film Provoked. She is co-starring with Nandita Das. The film was shot mainly in Britain.
