The Annual gala event held every year at Cannes attracted lots of media attention this year. India was adequately represented by a string of celebrities like Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor Anurag Basu, Mallika Sherawat. Bollywood bombshell Mallika Sherawat had made elaborate plans to attract maximum number of balls (eyeballs) with her revealing outfit this year.
How does she end up kissing another girl, Amy (played by Kalki)?
Tanya doesn’t want to kiss Amy. They’re playing truth and dare. Amy is a cool girl who likes to try different things. It’s her turn and she ‘dares’ to kiss me.
How do you rate Kalki as a kisser?
It was hardly a kiss.
Is it the only time you have been kissed by a girl?
(Laughs) Yes. And it will be the last time ever.
Has any girl made a pass at you?
Yes. In Standard 10, there was a girl in my badminton team. I think she had the hots for me. Though she never said anything, the way she used to talk and give me attention, made her intentions very obvious. She would feel very jealous if I talked to guys…
Were you told that you would have to kiss a girl?
No. Bejoy told me about everything else but the kiss. Well, he did bring it up once, but I thought he was kidding. It wasn’t until we were rolling, that Bejoy announced that the scene was on. Kalki kisses me in that scene.
Did you enjoy it?
I was traumatised. Thankfully, it was just one take. The reaction in the film was what I was actually going through at that time. I haven’t even kissed a guy onscreen. And I did my first kiss with a girl! That was an experience.
What is your take homosexuality?
To each its own. I like to kiss a guy and want to be kissed by a guy, but I have nothing against people who have homosexual tendencies. I have gay friends.
Actor Rahul Bose is heard to be upset with producer Vipul Shah for his alleged bias towards his actress-wife Shefaali during the promotions of their movie `Kucch Luv Jaisaa`.
Rahul Bose is betting big on this movie as he claims that he has a meaty role in the film but the producer Vipul Shah is more focussed on showcasing his wife Shefaali during the first round of promotions.
A film with the title Visible Bra Straps is bound to grab the eyeballs. Add to that the bit that it’s a story of two lonely women and you already have the curiosity sparked.
The film stars Indian model Reeth and foreign actress Petra Khruz in principal roles.
Directed by Ajitesh Sharma, the film is an Indo-Italian collaboration. It is a story of two women: A young Italian corporate professional Sandra (Petra Khruz) and a young Indian college student Sanjana (Reeth).
Sandra has lost her job and Sanjana has lost her love. Their solitude brings them together, not in person but in virtual, through web chat. They are entirely different as individuals; their cultures and way of lives are poles apart. It is their difference that connects them more and more. Sandra is shocked to see how Sanjana can restrict herself to constraints, which seems so ridiculous to her. Sanjana is equally shocked to see the joy Sandra finds in her own body.
Visible Bra Straps is their point of reference to the Sandra’s freedom and Sanjana’s bounds. But not all freedoms bring solace. Life has not connected them only for fun…
The film has made rounds of a lot of festival and was also showcased at Cannes Film Festival.
What was disheartening was that a firnagi model and a newbie to Bollywood Candice Boucher outshined the Bollywood actress and reportedly, made more heads turn than Mallika Sherawat.
“Mallika did wear a revealing outfit with her undergarments quite visible but it was Candice Boucher who walked in minutes before her in a see through gown and the photographers went berserk,” revealed a source.
Candice was walking the red carpet since her film Azaan was to be showcased. She walked in with director Prashant Chaddha and the lead actor of the film Sachin Joshi. Mallika was obviously fuming but what could one do,” informed an insider at the event.
Although Mallika remained unavailable for comments, her spokesperson said, “Nothing like this happened.”
