The path to superstardom is paved with pain, they rightly said.
Take Shah Rukh Khan. The man would wince with pain before he went for his knee operation. But not once did he cancel his shooting or show commitments.
Why, Shah Rukh was to do a show which clashed with his knee operation.
The dancers swore they could see the pain written all over his face when he danced on stage. But not once did he crib. He pumped himself with painkillers as well as pain balms.
And now, Hrithik Roshan is doing the same.
He has a bothersome ankle.The docs have asked him to take rest. Hrithik continues to shoot, heedless of his pain.
Considerate Abhishek is also starry!
Others struggle for star comforts. There are a lucky few who don't need to toil fo it. One of them is Abhishek Bachchan.
His latest acquisition is a specially designed van kitted with the latest gizmos. So while his costars are sweating it out, the Bachchan baba is busy watching films on his VCD player in cool comfort.
But then, you have to give it to Abhishek for being considerate. He is constantly inviting his costars to join him in his van.
Why Abhishek makes Anil uncomfortable!
Speaking of AB Jr also brings to mind Anil Kapoor.
Did you know that AB Jr is the only hero who can make Anil Kapoor uncomfortable?
Mind you, that has nothing to do with talent. Anil Kapoor outclasses Abhishek by leaps and bounds.
The reason, then? Abhishek 'Uncle's Anil.
It happened at the muhurat of Vashu Bhagnani's Om Jai Jagdish. Abhishek kept calling out for Anil Uncle.
And every time he did that, Anil winced. Finally, he pointed out to Abhishek that he needn't do that, since they were now colleagues.
But old habits die hard. No matter how hard Abhishek tried to avoid it, the Uncle slipped out sooner than he could stop it!
The item that's here to stay!
So we have another item specialist in the offing.
Pooja Batra is going the Suman Ranganathan way rather soon.
Her marriage notwithstanding, Suman recently did a sexy number for a Venus film with Fardeen Khan, which is expected to set the frontbenchers whistling for more.
Pooja, too, after her dance number in Rahul Rawail’s Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi is quite in demand.
Her Farz number might not have appealed much, thanks to the fate of the film at the BO, but her number in David Dhawan’s Jodi No 1 is turning out to be rather popular.
And to think that Pooja was gunning for the role opposite Sanjay Dutt (which was bagged finally by Monica Bedi).
Simone's going places!
She captured the hearts of television viewers with her endearing presence in serials like Heena.
Now, this Neelam clone is set to storm the silver screen as well. For starters, Simone Singh is acting as Akshay Kumar and Juhi Chawla's younger sister in Suneel Darshan's Ek Rishta. She then warmed her way into the hearts of the Darshan brothers and landed herself a role in brother Dharmesh's film, too.
Opposite, hold your breaths, Abhishek Bachchan. So what if it is only a special appearance?
She is also playing a principal role in Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gam. So Simone has accepted one insignificant role but bagged two important ones.
