No blogging, no six pack-abs, says Abhishek (Snippets)June 4th, 2008 - 3:30 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 4 (IANS) Blog and six-pack-abs are the latest fads in Bollywood but Abhishek Bachchan continues to remain averse to both of them. “I will not go for six-packs. I am not doing anything to get it. I am very happy with my one-pack and I would love to hold on to it. In fact, I would like every one to go back to one-pack,” said Abhishek.
Although his father Amitabh Bachchan blogs, but the young actor said he won’t start blogging as he does not consider himself as punctual and dedicated as his father in maintaining it.
Amitabh’s blog has, of course, drawn a lot of media attention due to his controversial remarks and satirical style of writing.
“I keep shooting outdoors and I don’t think I can update it regularly, so I don’t want to start it,” Abhishek said.
Aishwarya’s Hollywood connections flourish
Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai has a bevy of Hollywood films to look forward to.
“I have completed ‘Pink Panther 2′ and ‘Singularity’ is yet to be directed. They have sent me the final draft of the script and this development took place at Cannes.
“I haven’t had time ever since… I will go through the final draft and then of course I will look at the dates and the schedules and if all works out then the project will be happening next year. For now that’s the only thing,” said Aishwarya.
She added: “The one with Meryl Streep is still going through its English rewrite because it is a French film.”
Earlier, Aishwarya had appeared in English films like “Mistress of Spices” (2005), “Provoked” (2007) and “Last Legion” (2007).
DVDs of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ releasing soon
