Goan singer Remo Fernandez has decided to explore acting now. Mohit Suri has roped him in to play a crucial role in his Balaji-produced film The Villain. The film is quite a casting coup with even Kamaal R Khan getting an ‘extended cameo’. Remo will play the protagonist Siddharth Malhotra’s boss we hear. The film is being shot in Goa where Remo resides.

So sweet!

Strange are the ways of the world. The ways of tinsel world, more so. Do you remember the brouhaha surrounding Sonam Kapoor’s introduction into a cosmetic brand as the brand ambassador when Aishwarya Rai was already endorsing it? Now, Katrina Kaif has been roped in for another line of product within that brand, and we hear that Sonam is going all out to welcome her. Sweet and all that? Friends of Sonam say that she respects the ‘senior’ actor.

No paints, please

Girls in the industry are calling the shots and how! Anushka Sharma, always known to speak her mind, apparently has a strict policy when it comes to endorsements. We gather she has hang-ups about showing up for household products. ‘Ages you instantly’ is her reasoning. So while scooters, cameras and cosmetics get the thumbs up, it’s a no-no for mixers, pressure cookers and paints!
