|Saif Ali Khan with Bipasha again
They say that, in Bollywood, history and success repeat itself at frequent intervals. Well, we would like to add a bit more to that. We would like to say that, in Bollywood, it's not just history and success, but also a successful jodi that repeats itself at frequent intervals!
After 'Race-ing' ahead of everyone, the successful pair of Saif Ali Khan and Bipasha Basu will now be seen in a different avatar. This time round, they will be seen promoting the to-be launched mobile handsets called 'Wynn Mobiles', as they have been roped in as the brand ambassadors.
Sources said that the said brand will be having a grand launch by mid 2010, as they feel that it's the right time to hit the market and reach the consumers. As far as the reason why they zeroed down on Saif and Bipasha is concerned, our source said, "The company was scouting for every single hit actor. But they chose to zero down on the Saif-Bips pair as they felt that it's a safe bet to bank upon, as this pair has already delivered celluloid hits like Omkara and also Race.” When asked about the commercials involved, our source added that it was indeed a practical way of saying 'Sky is the limit'.
Repeated attempts to reach Saif and Bipasha and also their spokespersons proved futile.

Priyanka tweeted about her visit to the headquarter where she met Biz Stone, Twitter co-founder.
"My day was really interesting because I was invited to Twitter headquarter in San Francisco! Had a great time. Thanks Biz and team for the wonderful hospitality," she posted.
The 27-year-old, who has been shooting in US for Sajid Nadiadwala's "Anjaana Anjaani", is going to cross the 200,000 mark as far as her followers on Twitter are concerned.
At present, she leads the Bollywood bandwagon on the site with 196,903 followers and has left stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Shahid Kapoor far behind.
"Priyanka was in the US for her movie shoot. She had to drop by at a studio for the NDTV Indian of the Year programme and there she met the Twitter team.
She was invited to the headquarter office in San Francisco since she is so popular among the Bollywood celebs on Twitter," a source close to the actress told.
|Katrina Kaif refuses to do The Italian Job without Saif
Katrina Kaif is reconsidering taking on Abbas Mustan’s remake of ‘The Italian Job’. This is because her role is apparently rather unimportant.
Katrina is having second thoughts about the film since she read the script, even though she readily agreed at first. According to sources, since she started giving hits, she has become picky about her roles and won’t sign on anything just because it has big names. She also doesn’t want to sign on the film because she believes her role has no scope.
She was keen on doing the film at first because it starred Saif Ali Khan. But she lost interest in the film as soon as Saif left it.
This is not the first film she has turned down. In fact, in recent months, it’s the third film she has refused after agreeing to be a part of it initially, the other two being Sanjay Gadhvi’s ‘7 Days In Paris’ and Anees Bazmee’s ‘Thank You’.
However, she may agree to be a part of ‘The Italian Job’ if the necessary changes in the script are made.
|No Kisses, No Bikinis: Katrina Kaif
New York kiss episode seems to have left bad taste in Katrina's mouth. Perhaps that’s why the pretty lady has declared loud and clear that she wouldn't kiss or wear bikinis in the future. She has even made it official and told the producers and directors categorically about her decision.
According to reports Katrina has decided not to lock lips even if people use the oldest trick to persuade her: the script demanded it. Sources also says that she has made it clear to producer Karan Johar and director Tarun Mansukhani that she wouldn't do kissing and bikini scenes in Dostana 2.
Katrina admitted that she did scenes in the past that she wasn't comfortable but she is not going to repeat the mistakes in the future.
Confirming the story Kat told, “I don't deny I've done scenes in the past where I did things that I wasn't comfortable with. But now I won't. I just don't feel comfortable doing kissing scenes, or for that matter, wearing a bikini on screen.”
It is also said that Katrina refused to kiss Ranbir Kapoor in both Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Rajneeti in spite of the persuasion from the directors. All the intimate scenes in Raajneeti are between Ranbir and his American girlfriend played by Sarah Thompson. In the Indian portion of Ranbir's story, there's no intimacy with Katrina.
She convinced the director that the character of the dignified politician would not go down well with the audience doing intimate scenes.
“It's true. I'm not at all comfortable doing kissing scenes. Call me a prude or conservative. I just don't feel kissing scenes jell well with our audiences. So no kissing scenes for me, ” she adds.
