Kristen Stewart: Love to Work with Shah Rukh

Hollywood’s fascination with Bollywood stars continues with the latest to join the list, Twilight actress Kristen Stewart, who is a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan. She calls him an “epitome of romance” and says she would love to work with him.

She said if given a chance, he would be the one with whom she would love to do the second part of her movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

“And not just Hollywood but I would love to work with him in Bollywood movies too and for that I am also looking forward to learning Hindi,” said the 21-year-old actress who rose to fame with her role as Bella Swan in the vampire saga Twilight.

“I have also seen the promos of his latest movie Ra.One, which are very impressive and I just loved his look in the movie. I’ll definitely watch the movie also. He is truly an inspiration to me,” she added.


Excited About F1, Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga

As India hosts motor racing extravaganza Formula One for the first time, B-town celebrities are getting all set to sizzle for the event.

The Indian Grand Prix also has international pop star Lady Gaga performing in it.

“Everyone seems to be happy with Ra.One in Los Angeles... I feel so touched and happy. Now off to Delhi for Formula1 and Lady Gaga show!! (sic),” Shah Rukh Khan wrote on twitter.

Actor Arjun Rampal said, “In Delhi released RA1 now for F1, the setting looking awesome, will send pics through this weekend, as sport and glamour come together. Kids met Lady Gaga, and are over the moon. She was amazing with them. Can’t wait for her performance.”

“On my way to the F1 qualifying. It is going to be incredible,” actor Fardeen Khan said.

“Good morning people of the world... I am in Delhi and I can’t make it for the F1, how unfortunate is that...” actor Arshad Warsi tweeted.


Most Kissed at Madame Tussaud’s

Hrithik Roshan

Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan’s wax figure has reportedly made it to the list of top ten most kissed statues in London’s Madame Tussaud’s museum.

Though the museum is yet to make an official statement a source confirms that he has indeed made it to the top ten, adding that last year, actor Shah Rukh Khan had made it to the top ten list.

At least 20 percent of total kissers are males and the rest are women, mostly under the age of 30, sources said.

Hrithik, 37, is the youngest Indian actor to have a wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s.Among other actors who have wax statues, are Shah Rukh Khan, 45, Salman Khan, 45, and Amitabh Bachchan, 69.


Sizzling Malaika

Malaika Arora Khan

After “Munni Badnaam Hui” in Dabangg, Malaika Arora Khan will be seen in yet another item song, “Anarkali Disco Chali” in the Akshay Kumar-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer Housefull 2.

In the song, Malaika could be seen wearing six different outfits ranging from desi to western. She says, “It’s been over a year since Munni happened and everyone has been asking me about my next song. When Sajid (Khan) offered me the Anarkali song, I fell in love with it and said yes.”

What did she like about the song? “I liked the fact that Anarkali is completely different from Munni . . . What’s similar is the choreographer, Farah Khan. She and I have a superb track record and we intend to keep it going strong.”

Farah says, “Malaika looks like a million bucks in this new song. She’s a mixture of Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce.”

Sajid Nadiadwala on why Munni was chosen, “Malaika’s a part of Sajid Khan’s trilogy and a lucky mascot for us. She always adds a touch of class and grace to any item song and who better than Munni to become Anarkali?”

Not Sheila for sure!.
