I’m disappointed with ‘Kidnap’: Minissha Lamba (Film Snippets)October 29th, 2008 - 4:23 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Oct 29 (IANS) Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba, whose much-hyped last venture “Kidnap” bombed at the box office, says she is disappointed that the film didn’t turn out well at the box office. “I am disappointed that ‘Kidnap’ didn’t turn out well. It really feels sad when you work so hard for a film and which is so close to you and it doesn’t do well,” Minissha said.
The actress shaved off seven kg for her role as a 17-year-old teenager in the film following a rigorous regime over a period of eight months. However, Minissha says she would never go to the extremes of putting on mass for a character in any film.
“I am never ever going to put on weight for a character in a film. I am one of those body types who find it very difficult losing weight and so I am never going to do that. Putting on weight is a nightmare for me,” she said.
There is no leaning towards comedy in my career: Sharman Joshi
Bollywood actor Sharman Joshi who made a mark for himself with his comic timing in movies like “Style”, “Golmaal” and “Dhol” denies that his career is only comedy centric.
“There is no leaning towards comedies as such in my career. If the script interests and excites me, I do a comedy but people are appreciating my roles in other films too. My role in ‘Life in a…Metro’ for that matter was a serious one and much appreciated. I enjoy doing every genre,” he said.
He added: “It is not a role that is important for me but the content of a film.”
Sharman was recently seen in box office dud “Hello” and has a platter full of projects in his kitty with films like “Sorry Bhai”, “Three Idiots”, “To Baat Pakki” and “Allah ke Bande”.
No mini-skirts for Riya Sen
Actress Riya Sen, who made her Bollywood debut in 2001 with “Style”, a sex comedy and later went on to wear revealing clothes in “Jhankaar Beats”, says that people will hardly find her wearing a mini-skirt.
“I am very fussy about my clothes and very moody as well. One will never catch me in a mini-skirt just like that,” Riya said after walking the ramp for designer Ranna Gill at a recently held Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) here.
The surprising fact was that she sashayed across the ramp wearing a “mini-skirt” with a short jersey top teamed with a big necklace to jazz up the look.
