who can forget the immortal scene of

 

but didn’t Kate  look lovely in that jewelry? I wonder if she got to keep it…

 

Ladies, eat your heart out!    :-)

 

but with our vegetarian Amitabh Bachchan presiding during this visit of Grandmaster Spielberg, I am sure the menu looked somewhat different.

Katrina Kaif sprints into action: who needs romance?


googled and found koimoi.com

Katrina is excited about her two new action movies “Bang Bang” and “Dhoom3”

but nobody could be more excited than her fans who admired her sprinting through Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan. (why wasn’t that the most successful movie of all times? I LOVED IT, but then, I am a huge Katrina fan and I love her in all her movies. she just always shines so bright).

I googled and googled and googled my heart out but I couldn’t find the scene where Katrina shows off her action skills. But if you saw the movie, you know this girl can RUN! :-)

Katrina Kaif excited to take up action genre

Katrina will next be seen in action flick Dhoom 3.
Katrina Kaif has usually done love stories but the actress says she is looking forward to go beyond her romantic image with action films Dhoom 3 and Bang Bang.The two films, starring Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan, involve hardcore action and Katrina herself will be seen performing some dare devil stunts.”Bang Bang is inspired by Hollywood film Knight and Day but we have re-done the story to suit Indian audience. It is an action comedy and I haven’t done anything like this in a long time.

“All my previous movies have more or less been love stories. This also has a love angle but with a twist. It is a huge change and I am really excited about it,” she told PTI. Katrina is currently busy filming Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3 in Switzerland.

“We are still shooting… Still have a lot of work to do but it is shaping up well. It is a very glamorous and bold role at the same time. I am having a good time working with Aamir. He is a wonderful actor, extremely supportive.”

The Singh Is King star recently joined the list of actresses who have worked with the top three Khan’s (Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir) of the industry.

Though she feels lucky to have worked with the three superstars, Katrina says beyond a point name does not matter more than the work she is being offered.

“The big deal is they are legends and have been in the industry for the longest time… I am very fortunate to have got an opportunity of working will all three. It has been a learning and informative experience but beyond that I think it is not whom you work with but the kind of movies you do and what are you interests. What matters to me is the script and the director I am working with,” she said.

Coming from a non-filmy background and considering her non-fluency in Hindi, Katrina has achieved a lot by delivering hits like New York, Raajneeti, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Besides movies, she is also a part of many endorsements. She recently shot for an all new campaign for Mango drink Slice, titled the Slice taste challenge.

Katrina returns to her seductive look in the commercial, which she feels has a very poetic feel to it.

“Slice has been one of my best associations. When they started, their ideas just clicked with me. I believe if the base of the project is strong be it movies or ads, half of the work is already done.

“Also what I like is the sensual and visually appealing look of the ad. The quality is so poetic and it has a story with a message. All of this makes the journey of being with them more special and exciting,” she added.

Commenting on the recent reports about her younger sister joining the film industry, Katrina said, “Isabelle is currently in LA completing her acting course. She is happy there and has no plans of coming to Bollywood as of now. So as and when she completes her course and if she wants to come she can come.”

and here is her juicy Slice ad:

okay, Katrina you got us to eat the pound of sugar hidden in that drink. what else?

almost as yummy is her performance in the song Sheila Ki Jawaani

oh sorry, that was her body-double

Air India bumps into Jet Blue at JFK


If that raises your eyebrows, try to spend one day on Indian roads with all those suicidal truck drivers, forget about trucks, ANY drivers! and it will come to you as no surprise. Or try to get on or off a train in India. or buy a ticket to a movie or a ticket to anything. or line up for food the “British” way and you’ll get the last scraps.

Standing patiently and politely in line is not India’s favorite passtime. You cut lines by pretending not to see that there is somebody standing in front of you. No eye-contact, just show them your back. eye contact  maybe just maybe after the fact, and then very briefly and preferably indifferent. (and that little flash you get from your line cutter is just to check if you intend to kill them. Once that danger is averted, you may get a quarter or half of a smile, if ur lucky)

This was just a gentle nook, a way of Air India telling JetBlue, hello buddy,  move,  get going… we desis have no time for kids play.

Hey, no harm done. I love Air India, especially their food and the movies they show. It’s my favorite airline and India my favorite destination. Who needs West Palm Beach? Go to Goa!  :-)

 

 

Air India jet bumps passenger plane at New York airport

Associated Press | Updated: March 09, 2013 21:29 IST

New York: Two commercial jets have been damaged in the aviation equivalent of a fender-bender at New York’s Kennedy airport.

Nobody was reported injured in the accident, which happened at around 6:15 a.m. on Saturday.

A JetBlue spokesman says a plane carrying around 150 passengers bound for West Palm Beach, Florida, had become temporarily disabled due to a problem with its tow bar and was sitting near a gate when it was bumped by an Air India aircraft.

The JetBlue plane suffered some damage to its rudder.

Airline spokesman Mr Alex Headrick says the passengers were loaded on to another plane. The departure was delayed at least 3 and a half hours.

Messages left for Air India officials in New York weren’t immediately returned.
