Amisha Patel

Amisha Patel wants the world to know she is not ready to get married yet. Although she and Kanav Puri are totally devoted to each other, and marriage is on the agenda, it is far from being on the cards. Amisha hadn’t met her London-based beau for the last couple of months and they are working hard at their long-distance relationship. It is believed that her smitten Romeo has proposed to her, the actress has asked for some time to make up her mind. She is very sure that she loves him, but her career is important to her and she wants to concentrate on that. Patel maintains, “We are not planning marriage at all for the next two years as both of us are concentrating on work.

Long- distance relationships are never easy but we are both very supportive of each other’s work and trust and respect each other.The actress stresses that she isn’t ready to retire her make-up box just yet, “Work is my worship. I can’t dream of not being in front of the camera. I’m only married to my work. Marriage is the farthest from my mind. I haven’t seen Kanav in two months and wont be able to for at least another couple of months. But it’s okay. Work first. All else can wait.She says there is no comparison between her personal and professional life, “My career is my oxygen and love is my heartbeat. Both have to be present in my life and both make each other more enjoyable. I think everything in life needs a balance.The couple keeps their special love story through the electronic medium. She says, “It’s fun to e-mail and wait for calls. We also use the Blackberry messenger.

We work very hard so when we get a few days together we value them. We also Skype sometimes. Kanav is in London so, I have no distraction. I can only focus on work. So in a way it’s perfect. Also we are so work minded that the distance doesnt mater. What we lose out in quantity of time spent we make up in quality time and that’s far more important for any relationship to survive.

Sameera Reddy

Sameera Reddy who was recently in Kuala Lumpur to shoot for the Tamil film, Asal, with Ajith had a horrific experience with the security guards of the PM of Malaysia. The actress recalls, “I was done from the shoot and was returning back to my hotel. I was in the hotel car park waiting for the lift, when suddenly, I noticed some drama unfolding. I saw 10 security guards forming human chains and ushering someone into the lift. As I entered the lift, all of them followed me with the person they walked in with. Sensing a sensitive issue, I asked the hotel security guy escorting them whether I shall take the next ride up but he said that it was okay.Sameera adds that the trouble started after that. “We reached the main lobby floor and I was moving out when all of a sudden, one of the security guys grabbed my arm and shoved me aside hard. I was shocked that someone had the audacity to manhandle me like that so I pulled his hand off me and asked him what the hell he was doing?

He started shouting at me in Malay and when I screamed right back at him, he got aggressive. Another guard joined in and then, the whole situation got out of control, with both screaming and shouting. They tried to lift me bodily and throw me out of the lift, when the hotel guy finally intervened.The hotel personnel begged Sameera not to upset this important person. Disgusted, she she stomped off from the scene, “I was alone and I didn’t want to raise a ruckus in a foreign land where I didn’t know the language.” The issue could have turned more serious as Sameera later discovered.Sameera laughs, “I was told later that they were security guards of the Prime Minister of Malaysia. I was not scared or apprehensive but felt a bit proud that I had taken them on. No man can misbehave with me!

Soon after the incident, she returned to Mumbai but swears she will definitely go back, “I had to come back early for the promotions of my next release Red Alert. I play a Naxalite girl. Shooting in the jungles was a different experience.”

Shahrukh Khan gets nostalgic


SRK gets nostalgic while giving a lecture recently SRK played the role of a quizmaster to host the 4Ps business and marketing quiz DARE 09 and recalled his poverty/kadki days. SRK talking to the students said, ’’I’m the most successful failure. My mother didn’t live long enough to see me become a superstar. Ab pata nahin Delhi mein yeh word use karte hain ya nahin, but there were times jab meri kudki ho gayi thi.

Kudki is when you lose everything and you’re on the road. I equated poverty to failure at one point in my life. I didn’t want to be poor. So I did Deewana, a film that Armaan Kohli had refused. I did Baazigar that my friend Salman didn’t want to do.I acted in Darr because Aamir turned it down and I worked in Dil Aashna Hai because Saif refused it. These films paid well and I was working to avoid unemployment. When Dilip saab (Dilip Kumar) and I were watching my Devdas, I asked him, ‘Why did you do Devdas?

And he said, ‘Pata nahin. Tab ek lakh rupaiya mila tha’. Then success happened… My speech ends. Normally, people clap now.”
