Kareena Kapoor declines international endorsement offer (Film Snippets)January 13th, 2009 - 12:28 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 13 (IANS) Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor, who is fast turning into an advertisers’ delight, has declined to endorse an international cosmetic brand because her hands are full. “The international brand is a trademark to reckon with. Any other actress in Kareena’s place would have jumped at it,” said a source who refused to reveal the name of the brand.
“Kareena is endorsing brands like Anne French, Globus, Lux, Boroplus, Vivel and Kurkure and clients are very happy with her. Their product sales have shown a rise so it is obvious that they want Kareena to continue to endorse their products,” added the source.

Now, Tusshar Kapoor sports a moustache
Tusshar Kapoor is following in the footsteps of Shah Rukh Khan. While the superstar was seen with a moustache in his recent hit “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”, Tusshar sports one in his forthcoming film “Life Partner”.
“I am playing a married man for the first time. My character of a Gujarati NRI requires me to sport a moustache,” said Tusshar.
“I’ve been paired opposite Prachi Desai who is a Gujarati. She was a huge help in terms of learning the acts and behaviour required for my character. She also helped me a lot in speaking the language with the proper accent,” he added.
