Sameera Reddy to go de-glam for Nagesh Kukunoor

Sameera Reddy’s career has been facing a slow down since a couple of years. Lately, the hot siren has signed a project with Nagesh Kukunoor titled ‘Yeh Honsla’ in which she will be seen in a de-glam avatar.

She will portray the role of a Rajasthani village belle in this one without makeup and with a ghoonghat. Talking about her character in the film, Sameera says, “I’m looking forward to Yeh Honsla. Of all the roles that I’ve ever done, Nagesh Kukunoor’s film is ‘it’. It’s where I’ve done my best. I’m a Rajasthani girl, who takes on all the Panchayats. She’s a very strong girl – her name is Rani, and it’s this woman’s story.”

About her de-glam look, she adds, “It’s like you’re bare – you have nothing to work with except your character – and the focus is just on your emotions. Being glamorous is actually much easier!”

Sameera was also seen in a new makeover in her previous film ‘Red Alert’ where she played a tribal woman-cum-Naxalite.

Sameera had won the hearts of millions with her oomph. How much she is admired in her de-glam look, is to be waited and watched.

Ameesha Patel and Kanav Puri no longer together

After spending many lonely years post her breakup with Vikram Bhatt, Ameesha Patel found solace in her NRI boyfriend Kanav Puri and they were into steady relationship for the past three years. However, since past eight months, trouble has been creeping into their relationship.

The reason for this trouble is that while Kanav wants to settle down with marriage, Ameesha wants to give another try to her sinking acting career. In fact, he had proposed marriage to her when he had come down to India to celebrate her birthday in June last year but to his dismay, Ameesha has been evading this topic by and again. Currently, there is so much tension that both have stopped speaking altogether.

Insiders also say that since Ameesha has patched up with her parents, she is feeling emotionally secure and does not need her boyfriend’s shoulders any more. So, while Ameesha wants to concentrate on her sinking career, Kanav wants to move ahead of a relationship which seems to have no destiny.

I won’t say sorry to Shiv Sena : Bollywood Actress SRK

SRK who is currently in US is clearly upset with the reaction of Shiv Sena against him for supporting Pakistani cricketers inclusion in IPL.

SRK says, It makes me feel that activities like this are unhealthy, undemocratic, its insensitive but this is the world is and you can only say what you believe in and stand by it and hopefully I will have the strength to do so.”

“As an Indian I’m not ashamed, guilty or unhappy about what I said neither am I sorry.Whatever I said, which has created an issue… I said it because I am an Indian… I think that every Indian would say the same that we have a good country and that everyone is welcome as a guest. Every country has tension on its borders but for that tension we can’t teach our children and young people the wrong thing… X is wrong, Y is bad and C is dirty,” he added.

Meanwhile shiv Sena are in no mood to forget and forgive the IPL issue and are hell bent on disrupting My Name is Khan’s release in Mumbai unless and until SRK apologizes.

Shiv Sena leader, Manohar Joshi said, “Whether it’s Shah Rukh or anyone else, the Shiv Sena says he must take back his comments, so he’ll have to do it. It’s better if he understands this well.Shah Rukh Khan will have to apologise or else we will not let his film release in Mumbai.”
