Mumbai, March 10 (IANS) Everybody is talking about Bipasha Basu! Her hot look, especially the eyes, in “Race” is a turn on. The smoky look of the extended eyeliner a la Sophia Loren has sparked off a trend not only in the film industry but also in the modelling circle. Bipasha said, “Eyes speak volumes! You don’t have to say anything at that point of time! It is the eyes that talk! They say, ‘Samjhnewale ko ishara kafi hai!’ Anaita has done a great job of styling me in ‘Race’ and trying the new make-up trend by extending my eye liner.”

Yesteryear glamour icon Sharmila Tagore was the first actress to have started that trend.

Bipasha has also been open to experiments and is always willing to try out something new when it comes to her looks and character in films. “Race” gave her that chance.

Also starring Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy, the high paced action thriller is set to hit the marquee March 21.


Sonu Sood’s strange obsession for jackets

A penchant for collecting jackets might sound strange at the start, but that’s what exactly Sonu Sood, who was seen as Aishwarya Rai’s cousin in “Jodhaa Akbar”, likes to do. He has collected 150 jackets from all around the world.

His last expensive purchase was in Australia during the shoot of “Singh is King”.

Ask him about it and he says: “It is a strange obsession but jackets are my biggest weakness. I have a collection of 150 jackets. All my friends call me ‘Jacket-man’ and make fun of me, and ask me how I would use them in a place like Mumbai city. But being in films our work takes us travelling, I try to make use of them whenever possible.”

So happy jacket-collecting Sonu, let your obsession soar to newer heights.
