The show goes on

Poor Hansika Motwani, remember her debut film with Himesh Reshamiya, called Aap Ka Suroor? Anyway that's not why we are sympathising with her. The girl was recently shooting in Delhi for a scene that required her to play polo and, as luck would have it, fell off the horse. Needless to add, Hansika was playing the sport for the first time. Story goes that the girl, who hurt her leg badly, picked herself up and went on to complete the scene as only a little of her act was left. This even when she had not got first aid. How committed!

Soapy affair

Katrina Kaif's fans are in a soap…err…we mean soup. Last week Lux, that has always roped in top actors as brand ambassadors, brought Katrina Kaif on board for the launch of a new variant. That must be happy news for Kat but we'd like to know what happens to the soap brand Dyna that Kat already peddles on television. For Kat followers, it is a question of which soap to use and which not. Or does it really matter for the brand ambassador, as far as the money is coming in.

Timely endorsement

Speaking of brand endorsements, Chitrangada Singh, who may have advertised for a few brands before, but never really thought of endorsing any was recently signed up by Titan. Apparently, the actress, also a National level swimmer, bought her first water-resistant watch from Titan and the fact that her favourite actor Aamir Khan endorses the brand, won her over. Did we mention a huge sum of money as well?
