Kareena Kapoor has given the last hit with ‘Bodyguard’ and with her forthcoming ‘Ek Main Aur Ek Tu’ set for February 10 release, the lady is busy these days with various promotional events. She was in Dubai with co-star Imran Khan to promote the film. Imran looked dashing in a beard and Kareena Kapoor looked stunning as ever in a black Burberry dress.
Kapoor was at her usual easy going and bubbly self. “Wow, I’m watching the promos of our film again after maybe a month and it all just looks so refreshing,” she said adding, “The character I play in “EMAET” is one that I haven’t played in a while. In my recent films, such as “Bodyguard”, I play your typical desi girl. And here I am playing this modern, fun-loving girl, which probably comes closest to my character in “Jab We Met” (2009).”
EMAET is the story of two strangers who get drunk one night in Vegas and wake up the next morning to find themselves married to one another. The film is said to be inspired from a Hollywood flick but Imran denied any similarity to it.
“We’ve been asked that before, but the only similarity here is that both films are based in Vegas,” assured Khan adding, “Come on, who doesn’t go to Vegas and get drunk. Even “The Hangover” had a similar premise.”
Salman Khan is known in Bollywood for his softer side despite a tougher outer appearance. He has done his bit for the society through his charitable organization ‘Being Human’.

Being Human organization has written to the jail authorities offering to pay the fine for some 400 inmates so that they can claim their freedom. The jail authorities have now sent the letter to the legal section. Jail authorities are awaiting clearance from the administration and once all permissions are granted, Salman’s foundation will submit about Rs 40 lakhs that will be used to set free about 400 inmates in jails across the state of UP.
“In about 63 jails in UP, there are 400 such inmates who have completed their jail term but are still inside because they cannot pay fine due to financial problems,” says Vijay Kumar Gupta, Inspector General (UP).

Deepika Padukone seems to be heading for another add on to her long list of breakups. She last had her breakup with Ranbir Kapoor and since past two years she seemed to be on close terms with Siddhartha Mallya and two made quite a few public appearances together. Be it the warm kiss at a stadium, their ‘couple entry’ at Arpita Khan’s party or a private dinner at a mid-town restaurant- the two seemed to be in perfect harmony with each other.
However, the two strangely seem to be quite cold and aloof since a couple of months. Sidhartha was conspicuous by his absence at Deepika’s apartment on his birthday earlier this month. Again, Deepika was not by Sid’s side when he threw a New Year bash.

We would like to clear that none of the poster on net are even remotely close to the actual designs,” Aamir told a daily.

Says Priyanka, “It’s one of the biggest achievements of my life. I’d always wanted to be a singer. My father (Dr Ashok Chopra) inspired me big time. And now, everything has fallen into place. We should be bringing out our first single around spring-summer. Then, we’d drop another single in a month or two and so on. We won’t be releasing the entire album together because that’s not how music artistes function in the US. They bring out singles.”
Elaborating further on her decision to bring out singles, the actress says, “There’s nothing wrong with bringing out singles. We all enjoy it when an international artiste cuts one. Why can’t I?”
