No plan to enter IPL: Kareena Kapoor (Film Snippets)March 15th, 2009 - 9:33 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 15 (IANS) Bollywood beauties Preity Zinta, Juhi Chawla and Shilpa Shetty are trying their luck in the business of cricket through the Indian Premier League (IPL), but Kareena Kapoor says she has no such plan as she doesn’t have a business sense.
Asked if she planned to enter IPL like other actresses, Kareena said: “I have no idea about business. I only know how to act. As for business, I will think about it five years later.”
Kareena, who was last seen with superstar Shah Rukh Khan in a song in “Billu”, is busy working for forthcoming films like “Kambakth Ishq”, “Main Aur Mrs. Khanna”, “Three Idiots” and an untitled Renzil D’Silva project.
While Preity co-owns IPL team Kings XI Punjab, Juhi is part owner of Shah Rukh’s Kolkata Knight Riders and Shilpa Shetty joined the cricket bandwagon this year with beau Raj Kundra by buying a stake in Rajasthan Royals.
Nana Patekar’s fetish for skull caps
Actor Nana Patekar has developed a fancy for skull caps, so much so that he insisted that the director of his forthcoming film “Ek - The Power of One” allow him to wear different skull caps in various scenes of the film.
In the Sangeeth Sivan-directed film, Nana sports a toned and young look as a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officer.
After some brainstorming, Sivan decided that whenever Nana’s character was to give his visiting card in the film, he would pull them out of his skull cap, said a source close to the film.
Nana was happy and he will now be seen wearing skull caps of different shades and designs in the movie.
Neetu Chandra upbeat about lead roles
Neetu Chandra has come a long way from doing bit roles in films like “Garam Masala”, “Traffic Signal” and “One Two Three” to doing a lead role in “Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye”. The actress now has four films in her kitty and she can’t stop thanking God for her success.
“I am doing lots of films. Four of them are lined up for release. I am getting solo leads now and it’s all because god has been so kind to me,” Neetu told IANS.
Among her forthcoming releases are “Khussar Prasad Ka Bhoot”, “Mumbai Cutting” and a film each with Vipul Shah and Raj Kanwar.
