Mumbai: Didn't know that Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor were such great buddies. The two stars have resorted to their micro-blogging sites to display their friendship. Sonam states, "Priyanka Chopra and me are high school mean girls apparently! Peecee what say you?" While PC tweets, "I say people need to start doing real journalism than actually making up things for the lack of news! Hey... at least they were hot!" The cause of their ire was the buzz about how they behaved at an awards event with each other. Apparently when Sonam was on stage, Piggy Chops was cracking jokes at her expense and when Priyanka went on the dais, Sonam decided to say her goodbyes and walk out.
Kajol shoots for a short film about education and literacy
Kajol recently shot for a film with a children's charity Pratham primary school in Hanuman Basti in Mumbai. The short film about education and literacy in India will be screened at the Pratham UK gala later in the year where the star will be the guest of honour. "I believe that literacy is the way forward for India and children are our future," says the actress who has pledged her support to the charity. "I just love to read. It helps me through the bad moments in my life. I was at boarding school for five years and that's where my love of reading began. We had a fabulous library and I was the one who took out all the books!" She adds, "I love kids. I think they were just amazing and wonderful."
John feels SRK's detention is 'good as well as bad'
John Abraham was in New Delhi recently for a media meet of his upcoming production. When asked about Shah Rukh Khan’s detention at a US airport, he said it's a good as well as a bad thing. After reading reports that he justified SRK's detention, Johnny boy sure found himself in a soup! He states, "The US is doing whatever they can to make their country safe, so it is justified. It all depends on how personally you take the issue, and Shah Rukh handled it with a lot of grace." Wonder why he did not make himself clear by what he meant was 'good' and 'bad' at the event itself? He adds, "I have been in that detention space where the Federal Bureau of Investigation was called in because I had Afganistan mentioned in my passport, as I had shot there for two months for my film 'Kabul Express'. And of course, Shah Rukh would agree that racial profiling could be a pretty much correct term for it (interrogation) because it's mostly coloured people who are detained."
