New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) Actress Katrina Kaif, who features in the promotional video of Vijay Mallya’s Indian Premier League (IPL) team ‘Royal Challengers’, surprised everyone when she played a prank while shooting the song. She took the mike, changed her voice and announced that Katrina had fainted due to the non-stop shooting in the sweltering heat.

The shoot had started at 7 a.m. at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai owned by the Cricket Club of India (CCI).

The whole unit panicked and frantically started searching for her but couldn’t find her for nearly half an hour. Director Sanjay Gupta and choreographer Bosco were tense since they had to finish the shoot in the limited time allotted by the authorities.

Everyone heaved a sigh of relief when they saw Katrina emerge, having a good laugh.

When contacted, Gupta laughed and said: “Hey who told you that? Katrina was lovely to work with.”

Last year Katrina gave hits like “Namastey London”, “Apne”, “Welcome” and “Partner”, and this year her film “Race” has done well at the box office.


‘Kismat Konnection’ to release in July

After delivering hit film “Race”, Ramesh Taurani’s Tips Films is now all set to release its next big project “Kismat Konnection” on July 11, 2008.

Directed by Aziz Mirza, the film stars Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan and is expected to become a big hit with audiences.


Sikandar Kher’s debut scene cost Rs.15 million

Newcomer Sikander Kher’s introductory scene in his debut film “Woodstock Villa” reportedly cost a whopping Rs.15 million to shoot.

Director Hansal Mehta confirmed that the producer spent quite extravagantly for the introductory scene, which is expected to be similar to Tom Cruise’ entry in the 1990 classic film “Days of Thunder”.

In the scene, Sikandar is seen riding an imported Yamaha MT 01 bike with smoke in the background. The scene required three days of shooting.

Mehta feels that Sikandar, son of actors Anupam and Kirron Kher, is a powerhouse of talent and a natural born star. He is however not surprised by Sikandar’s capabilities, as he believes that the actor has a certain pedigree, given the work of his parents.
