Lips dont lie koena mitra

Lips don’t lie! -nor do pics

Why was Koena Mitra housebound some time back? Was
it a case of lip surgery gone wrong?(or to much head)

Looking good comes with a
price! We've heard that Koena
Mitra was housebound
until a few days ago, after a
recent lip job(what job) went terribly wrong.
She went through a silicone implant
surgery, but the result was a
far cry from what she had expected.
The actress now intends to get
a correction surgery done to get
rid of her swollen lips.
Says a source close to the actress,
"She got a lip job done about
10 days ago but the result is far
from pretty. She has almost locked
up herself in the house and doesn't
want to meet anyone."Close
friends of the actress inform that
she has been craving for a perfect
pout. After having consulted a few
high profile cosmetic surgeons in
the city, she decided to get lip implants
done, instead of collagen
The procedure was painful and
expensive. With the not-sofavourable
results she will have to
go under the knife very soon and
bear the pain again. A reliable
source says, "She used to complain
about her thin lips. But her lips are
completely swollen now."When
quizzed about it, the actress refused
to come clean. She denied
having got any surgery done. She
said, "I have not got any lip surgery
The actress has been mired in
similar controversies before. Her
fellow colleagues have alleged that
she has had other cosmetic surgeries
done including a rhinoplasty.
A reliable source says, "She
has definitely worked on her nose.
She is very careful when her make
up artist applies make-up on her,

Sexual favors in Bollywood !

Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam in 'casting couch' sex scandal
Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam in 'casting couch' sex scandal
If rumors have even a little bit of the credibility factor in them, then it wouldn't be wrong to state that more than half of our Hindi Film Industry is involved in what we call - "immoral acts", going by the society norms. Be it extra-marital affairs, underworld connections, monetary cheating and last but not the least, the most controversial sin of all, "the casting couch".

From the bottom most pit to the high-handed actresses have been linked to this tainted term; performing sexual favors for those who "matter" in the industry and in some cases, innocent souls turned into Bollywood prostitutes just so they could hear the famous words, "Lights, Camera and Action".

However for long there was this perceived notion that only women are subjected to the matters of casting couch and this could be in Bollywood, Fashion Industry or the Television Industry. But over the years, the number of cases concerning male casting couch have also been over-whelming.

The very recent one (which did manage to make to our daily-tabloids) being popular Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam accusing renowned Film Critic, Mr. Subhash K. Jha of holding a personal vendetta against him just because he refused his sexual advances. In his retaliation to Jha's article "It's a nosy affair" in Times of India, where the accused in many words hinted the singer to not whine over his nasal rival aka. Himesh Reshammiya's mass-popularity, the not-so-happy Sonu Nigam decided to set the record straight.

Let me spill the beans open for you. I've kept quiet for too long just hoping that his conscience will overcome his vengeance for me.

It's not a secret in the industry that he is a homosexual. God bless him for homosexuals are normal people with just different sexual preferences, just like men lusting for women is not a taboo. But a man punishing a woman for not complying with his sexual advancement is an issue right? So why isn't a man imposing upon another man an issue? Isn't this a free world?

Am I supposed to reciprocate to something that I am not interested in? And do I have to be subjected to this kind of DADAGIRI for no fault of mine? He further goes on to state his justified reasons. What is my fault in this? No one is obligated to interact with people who make one feel uncomfortable! And especially when someone would constantly talk either negative, or suggestive! I am not just an artiste but also a reader of your newspaper from the time I gained consciousness to this world. I demand you to treat me like a common man. I am not alone in this world; I have a close knit family, friends and admirers who feel deeply hurt when this kind of unaccountable bashing is inflicted upon me. I want to be left alone. I don't want to be subjected to this strange kind of sexual assault where all that I did like a phenomenon some time back has become something so hateworthy for this sick man.

Now if you ask me, I think by outing Mr. Jha's alleged scheming tactics (if one goes by the letter's every word) Sonu did the right thing. If the so-called film critics have the official license to rip apart anything and everything concerning the Film Industry, I believe everyone else, even those remotely involved have the very same rights to justify or defend their intentions (even if it means getting "personal"). Agreed, for many Sonu Nigam may appear to be jealous of His Himeshness's stardom, be it as a singer or an actor. But tell me something wouldn't you be pissed off as well on watching your competitor raking-in recognition, not out of talent but simply out of the mass absurdity - frankly speaking, I am and I am not even a bathroom singer.

A good friend, who doesn't agree on Sonu's approach, however raises a valid point.

For all their talk of "industry" and it's ills, Jha - a journalist who's only connected peripherally to said industry, with very limited power over the careers of upcoming actors/singers - remains the only one to be directly named. If we're having an indepth examination of people in the film industry taking advantage of male newcomers, then why not start talking about people who actually make the movies? Producers, directors, financiers, actors, actresses.

Seriously one wonders if Sonu Nigam would have done the same had it been a popular director or a honcho from a powerful production house. But then again, this is Bollywood we are talking about - here friends become enemies in no time and enemies best friends even quicker; don't you remember the Anu Malik and Alisha Chenia episode.

Male model accuses Bobby Darling of sexual abuse,bollywood

Male model accuses Bobby Darling of sexual abuse

OH BOY! Bobby Darling has been accused of sexually harassing a model named Surjit Jagdish Singh.

New Delhi: Just days after singer Sonu Nigam accused a film journalist of sexual harassment, similar allegations have been levelled against Pankaj Sharma, better known as Bollywood's Bobby Darling, by a male model.

Bobby has been accused of sexually harassing a model named Surjit Jagdish Singh.

Singh has alleged that Bobby promised him modelling assignments in return of sexual favours, and on refusal threatened to boycott Singh in the television and Hindi film industry.

“Bobby Darling has told me that she would never let me come up in the industry. She also told me that she would not let me work anywhere and even if I get an opportunity she will make sure that I am out of the project soon,” Singh said.

A case has been registered against Bobby in Mumbai's Oshiwara police station under Sections 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code.

Bobby, in fact, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons off late. Last month, television actress Dolly Bindra alleged that Bobby had conspired against her in a case of cheating with actor Koena Mitra.

According to Bindra, she had approached Koena with a role in her film. After the initial talks, Bindra gave Rs 5 lakh as a token amount to Koena in November. But later, Koena refused to work in her film and avoided her phone calls.

According to Bindra Koena was misguided by Bobby and director Alok Shrivastava.

Bobby who played herself in filmmaker Santosh Sivan's National Award winning film Navarasa was conferred with the best supporting actor award at the Monaco International Film Festival last year.

Degree awarded to Bollywood star shilpa shetty

Shilpa Shetty with her cap and gown Shilpa Shetty was awarded an honorary doctorate Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was praised for her "dignity and poise" as she received an honorary degree at Leeds Metropolitan University.

The actress collected her doctorate of arts as graduation ceremonies for more than 4,000 students began on Wednesday.

The university was a partner of the International Indian Film Academy Awards, held in Yorkshire last month.

Miss Shetty was praised for the way she handled the Celebrity Big Brother racism row earlier this year.

Addressing the graduands, Vice Chancellor Professor Simon Lee said: "There are some parallels between the challenges faced in any house and student life.

Someone at some time will behave badly, not necessarily to you but to others or the wider community, to someone or some group who cannot defend themselves.

"In Shilpa Shetty you are graduating with someone who rose to that challenge with great dignity and poise, making a difference."

Shilpa Shetty launches India Now festival London

Shilpa Shetty joins the London Mayor, Ken Livingstone, at 11am, Tuesday 17th July at London Bridge Pier, as one of the cultural ambassadors to unveil India Now – a three-month festival of events and exhibitions dedicated to Indian art, film, theatre, music, fashion, food and business.

Shilpa Shetty and Ken Livingstone will join other ambassadors of the festival, including actress Joanna Lumley and captain of the Indian national cricket team, Rahul Dravid, as they launch the event with a visual spectacle, receiving a replica of the Taj Mahal as it comes to rest at London Bridge Pier, following a sail down the River Thames, past London’s most iconic landmarks.

Commenting on the India Now festival Shilpa says, “The India Now season of cultural events taking place across London this summer is an apt reflection of the city's enriched diversity of ethnicities. London is a unique melting pot of cultures, providing a space for people from a multitude of backgrounds to come together and share with each other the wealth of their experiences.

“Cultural respect and encouraging a deeper understanding of Indian traditions through a celebration of diversity, art, dance and food is obviously an issue close to my heart, which is why I am delighted to be a part of these events. Celebrating India in London is an opportunity for all Londoners and visitors to London to see, taste, hear and experience some of the amazing gifts India has to offer.”



On her current visit to India, international star Sienna Miller, the green ambassador for 'Global Cool' - an organisation that is committed to creating awareness about the harmful effects of global warming - met IIFA brand ambassador and Indian cinema's first citizen, Amitabh Bachchan.

IIFA is partnering with Global Cool in its initiative to educate people to join the effort to save the earth. The two 'planet savers' discussed global warming at a press meet held in Mumbai, today, at the J.W. Marriott poolside where they posed for the photographers sporting IIFA and Global Cool T – shirts and umbrellas.

Global Cool has a ten year campaign to get a billion people worldwide to reduce their carbon emissions by a ton a year.

Sienna comes to India with the aim to spread awareness against the growing harmful effects of global warming and to remind us about our duty as global citizens towards Mother Nature. The agenda in association with IIFA included easy tips on how to protect the earth from increasingly damaging effects of global warming.

Sienna is excited to be in India. Her excitement was evident as she spoke about India, "For a country like India, environmental awareness is crucial. I'm glad to know that an international platform like IIFA with tremendous reach has taken up this responsibility to make Indians aware about global warming. It makes me immensely proud to be partnering global superstars like Mr. Bachchan for this serious cause. We need to understand that, we have to stand together and work together to conserve the bounty of nature. Hence, it is my sincere request to my friends, fans and citizens of India to do their bit to keep global warming from harming this beautiful country."

Speaking at the meet, Amitabh Bachchan said, "IIFA has been the frontrunner in promoting Indian cinema and culture around the world. And this year marked an important addition to IIFA's message to the world – the concern for environment. IIFA is partnering 'Global Cool' in its endeavor to save the planet. The concern that IIFA has shown for the environment is something we, as world citizens, should adopt and work towards. UN research has shown that even if the developed world reduces its greenhouse gas emissions dramatically, growth in emissions from rapidly emerging economies like India will drive up emissions beyond the climatic tipping point."

Mumbai faces a serious threat due to this. Dharavi will possibly be the first place in India to go underwater due to rising sea levels! Sienna Miller during her Mumbai visit will also visit the Dharavi area and various other areas that are likely to be affected by global warming.

With climatic challenges looming large, IIFA has decided to address the concerns that the world has towards the hazardous effects that human activities are causing. Hence, was born the association with Global Cool - a movement across the world to create consciousness about the issue of global warming and to find new technologies to make our lives more eco efficient.

Now and Then- Kareena Kapoor

Kareena recently revealed that she has turned vegetarian and is apparently following a strict workout regime. Perhaps some of the flak she received for her Yeh mera dil song in Don had something to do with it.

But does the new look work for you?

Walt Disney pictures to invest with shahrukh khan

It is believed that Walt Disney Pictures, the bigwigs in the Hollywood's entertainment business, have approached Shah Rukh Khan.

The company is keen to invest in SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment.

According to sources, they want to invest $30 million in the deal. When SRK was holidaying in London with his family, it is believed that representatives of the company flew down from Hollywood to meet him and strike a deal.

Other international companies like Sony Pictures and Rupert Murdoch's company have also expressed interest in investing in Red Chillies. So far, the actor has not confirmed anything about the deal.
So one will just have to wait and watch.
