Being sweet and cute suits me best: Minissha Lamba

Minissha Lamba says she’s looking for a lover boy so she can fall in love, get married and have kids. Rein in your imagination — she’s talking about her character Mahi, in the forthcoming release Bachna Ae Haseeno.

“I play a young girl from Amritsar and her wishes are very innocent. All she wants is to find the love of her life,” says Minissha. There’s a bit of Mahi in all of us, she feels.

“We all are looking for our partner, consciously or unconsciously, to have a fulfilling relationship,” she continues. Is she yearning for it, too? “I think life would be incomplete if you don’t experience it,” Minissha replies, blushing.
While she’s unwilling to pursue that line of talk, she’s just plain stumped about finding the words to sing co-star Ranbir Kapoor’s praises. “He is born talented, a natural charmer, just like his role in the film,” she finally says.

“We share a rapport… there’s an unspoken understanding between us.”

Bachna Ae Haseeno is her first romantic comedy, and Minissha admits it was the light, youthful concept that drew her to her role as Ranbir Kapoor’s first love. And the fact that she could play up her cute factor. “Being sweet and cute suits me best. I left the sexy image for Bipasha and Deepika,” she says with a laugh. She has no regrets about not wearing any Western outfits.

“Bipasha and Deepika didn’t get a chance to wear Indian outfits. I was the only one who wore them,” she points out. Her look isn’t that of a typical Punjabi girl, she adds. “It’s a lot of mix and match, with kurtis and capris, tops and patiala salwars with spaghetti string tops.”deepika  padukone

Her look isn’t the only thing that Minissha is thoroughly pleased with; she’s also in awe of the film’s director Siddharth Anand. “He is not tough, but very focussed. He is the first director I’ve called by his nickname, Sid. This shows how cool he is,” she chuckles.

As preparation for the film, she watched Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge 17 times. “Because Mahi is inspired by the film and is looking for her Raj. I had already seen DDLJ 10 times before this film and would not mind watching it ‘n’ number of times.” But that’s not going to be the case with her movies. “I am my biggest critic, as I critically analyse every single frame. I believe that helps me learn and improve.”

Deepika Padukone new BSNL ambassador


State-run BSNL has appointed Deepika Padukone as its new brand ambassador replacing Preity Zinta.

BSNL, country's largest telecom operator with 74 mn customers, has not renewed Zinta's contract that ended last week as it was eager to associate the brand with a younger face.

Padukone has been contracted for a year, a Bharat Sanchar Nigam official said.

According to industry sources, Depika has been hired at a higher fee than Zinta.

Among the handset companies, BSNL's rival Airtel has cine stars like Vidya Balan and Madhavan as ambassadors. Besides, Spice has hired Katrina Kaif, Nokia has Shah Rukh Khan and Amir Khan joins Samsung Mobile phones.

BSNL has off late been very aggressive in its marketing exercise in order to shed the typical PSU image and be seen as a lively brand for all categories of users.

The company is learnt to have a Rs 100 crore ad and marketing budget.

Deepika's new avatar


We hear that Akshay Kumar has inspired Deepika Padukone, his Chandni Chowk To China co-star, to perform her own stunts.

Deepika bravely took up the challenge and performed a dangerous stunt without using the precautionary measure of wires.
Nikhil Advani, the film’s director vouches for Deepika’s courage, “Though it was a novel experience for her, Deepika sailed through the sequence without a flutter. She did it well and did it without using the safety precaution of wirings. We were all bowled over. Of course, Akshay was an inspiration. She worked really hard to get the posture and power right. Those who have seen her in Om Shanti Om will be in for a shock.”

Akshay seemed to have rubbed off some of his love for martial arts to Nikhil as well. He informs, “Before I started making this film, my knowledge of martial art was restricted to Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee and the crouching tigers of the world. But Akshay brought out the hidden dragon in me. He made me watch a lot of action films before we left for China.”

Deepika's a Grand Marshal


The mantle of Grand Marshal for the India Day Parade in New York has fallen on the beautiful Deepika Padukone this Independence Day. More than the honour, what’s exciting for the one-film-old actress is the fact that 30 years ago when this tradition was started in NY by the Federation of Indian Associations, the first Grand Marshal was Bollywood’s original showman – Raj Kapoor. “I’m privileged to be part of a ceremony that was started with Ranbir’s grandfather,” said Deepika, the most promising future bahu of the Kapoor khandaan. The Parade will be held on August 16 and 17, but Deepika will be alone in New York. The reason being Ranbir, who is otherwise inseparable from her, will be busy with the release of their new film in India.
