I wanted to be a lawyer: Kim Sharma
Kim Sharma, best remembered for her role in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Mohabbatein”, says she never wanted to be an actor.
“I wanted to be a lawyer and I was working towards it, but suddenly modelling happened and then I got film offers. So I’m acting and enjoying it,” she said.
Currently, Kim is looking forward to two comedies “Loot” and “Daddy Cool”.

Katrina upset about not continuing cello lessons
Katrina Kaif learnt to play the cello for her role in recently released “Yuvvraaj”, but couldn’t master the instrument. She says she would love to take more lessons but her busy schedule doesn’t allow her to do so.
“I have learnt how to play a bit of the cello. In terms of making the correct sound, it needs more time, but it is not possible for me to dedicate three years to master it,” Katrina said.
The actress explained that the film didn’t require her to master the art of playing the cello, as it wasn’t a biography of a cello player.
“My character happened to be a cello player in the film and I just had to get the right posture for it to look visually correct,” she added.
The film, also starring Salman Khan, Zayed Khan and Anil Kapoor, didn’t appeal to the audience.
