No problem going topless: Jennifer Aniston

Posted: 19 Feb 2012 10:56 PM PST

Actress Jennifer Aniston, who appears topless in her latest project " Wanderlust", says she was unfazed about baring her chest.

The 43-year-old says she really enjoyed filming in Clarkesville, Georgia, where no one batted an eyelid about nude actors getting make-up applied to their entire body, reports

"You do get nervous when there's a day where it's oops, I'm naked. I wouldn't go topless for a cause, going to such an extreme to make a difference. But we've been among these people in this environment for almost two months. The topless scene was nothing compared to what happened in the two months prior," said Aniston.

"There was an actor naked the whole time getting his touch-ups and everybody else just having a normal conversation," she added.

Aniston says filming "Wanderlust" was as fun as shooting long-running US sitcom " Friends".

"There was a real community feeling. We were in the middle of nowhere and we were all a hop, skip and a jump from each other peppered around this lake. The farthest people were 20 minutes away. After work we had dinner together and we spent the weekends together," she said.

Santoshi at Bachchans’ door, asks for his money

Posted: 19 Feb 2012 10:53 PM PST

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi must have been in a real fix.

To recover the money that he had already given the Jr Bachchan and his wife for his film Ladies and Gentlemen, Santoshi did not rely on mere letters or even film governing bodies. Mumbai Mirror learnt that Santoshi went knocking at the Bachchan residence to get his money back.

Santoshi was spotted coming out of Jalsa last week. Inquiries revealed that Santoshi had paid Rs 25 lakh each to Abhishek and Aishwarya for his film Ladies and Gentleman. However, the film couldn't take off because of Aishwarya's pregnancy. According to a source close to the filmmaker, to recover his lost money, Santoshi went to Abhishek's bungalow and even though the Bachchans were not amused, Abhishek didn't keep him waiting and returned the signing amount.

Confirming that he has received his Rs 50 lakh signing amount for Ladies and Gentleman, Santoshi said, "But I will make a new film with them, perhaps next year."

Ladies and Gentleman was supposed to go on floors in July 2011 in which Aishwarya was supposed to play the lead. When the actress was pregnant, Santoshi had said, "The fact that Aishwarya and Abhishek are going to be parents is far more important than my film. The role will no longer suit her."

According to reports, Preity Zinta was approached to step into Aishwarya's shoes. Zinta being a good friend expressed her inclination to star opposite her Jhoom Barabar Jhoom co-star. However, due to various reasons Santoshi decided not to pursue the film altogether.

What gives Nargis Fakhri cold feet?

She has been walking the ramp for years now, but even after such a vast experience model-turned-actress Nargis Fakhri gets cold feet when she sees a huge crowd sitting in front of her.

Czech Pakistani model Nargis, who was introduced to Bollywood by director Imtiaz Ali as Ranbir Kapoor's love interest in the hit movie " Rockstar", walked the ramp at the final day of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Sunday as the showstopper for designer Sakshee Pradhan. She wore shimmery trousers with a long flowy asymmetrical top.

After the show when Nargis came out for the press conference, she was heard saying: "It freaks me out to see so many people in front of me."

Walking the ramp as a showstopper is a completely different experience, Nargis told IANS, adding that "it is a very different experience."

"Words cannot describe what you feel when you get on to the runway and you transform to something else. With this outfit, I feel like a glamorous diva," she added.

Pradhan's collection was urban and chic and included outfits like gowns, shorts, shimmery trousers, tunics in nude colours.

The models symbolised urban and free-spirited women when they walked the ramp in her creation along with headphones and spectacles.

No skin tanning for Deepika Padukone

Posted: 19 Feb 2012 10:47 PM PST

The co-producer of 'Kochadaiyaan' refutes reports claiming that Deepika's skin tone will be darkened by two shades to facilitate use of motion capture technology in the movie.

Deepika Padukone has recently been in the news not just for the controversy surrounding " Race 2" but also because of the supposed preparations being taken to ensure her skin tone compatibility with Rajinikanth for "Kochadaiyaan".

Recently, reports had surfaced about how her skin tone will be darkened by two shades to facilitate the use of 'motion capture' technology (MOCAP) in Soundarya R. Ashwin's directorial debut starring R Sarathkumar, Rukmini Vijayakumar, Shobana, Nassar and Jackie Shroff, among others. While the truth is that though MOCAP is being used for the first time in India for this Tamil film, this technology needs no skin tone compatibility of the actors. The process being used doesn't need any superficial makeup trick but involves a great deal of technological precision to generate a larger-than-life image of Rajinikanth.

Says Dr Murli Manohar, the co-producer of "Kochadaiyaan", "There is no question of darkening Deepika's skin tone to assist in MOCAP. Deepika had come down to Chennai for a look ad texture test. But somehow, people got wrong ideas. We will begin shooting the film from the middle of March at the Pinewood Studios in the UK."

"I'm lucky to have someone like Sanjay who is so protective and caring.
