Nandana refuses to go topless

nandanasen Nandana refuses to go toplessAfter the controversial nude scenes in Ketan Mehta’s Rang Rasiya Nandana Sen has been getting a lot of offers from Hollywood makers. The scenes are apparently not obscene but shot aesthetically

The actress rejected two Hollywood projects recently. But clearing the air sources close to Nandana say , “She rejected those movies as they had few nude sequences to be shot and she wasn’t comfortable shooting for those sequences.”

Nandana was even offered the role of a protagonist in an Italian film based on Mahasweta Devi story titled choli ke peeche. The film was to be directed by Italo Spinelli, produced by RAI, and shot by Blasco Giurardo, the cinematographer of Cinema Paradiso.

But once again Nandana rejected to do this movie as she was asked to do nude scenes. Although the film had a powerful story and a brilliant script Nandana had no other option but to reject the International flick. Nandana decided not to play this part “It’s a powerful story and although I support it fully I feel the subject matter is such that the tribal girl’s nudity cannot avoid becoming unintentionally voyeuristic and eroticized even though that is definitely not the objective.”

Celina Jaitley faces hate mails for support of gay community

img 6326 200x300 Celina Jaitley faces hate mails for support of gay communityJust recently, Celina Jaitley had expressed her support for the gay community at the re-launch of the magazine for the gay community ‘Bombay Dost’. She had also participated in the Gay Parade in Mumbai and called for the abolition of the laws that treat homosexuality as a crime.

But seems, Celina’s support for homosexuality did not go down well with the people, for the lady has been flooded with various hate mails and messages after the launch party. Some even questioned Celina’s sexuality and wrote that she too is a homosexual.

But strong as she is, Celina is unperturbed by all this. Celina vehemently conferred that this is a human right deserved by every person. During the launch itself she had stated: “It saddens me that people have so much hatred towards sexual minorities and people who show them support.

It’s also unfortunate that people have not stopped their hatred against the gay community but have only learnt to mask it.”

Why Karan Johar is turning blogger

Like his colleagues Amtiabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, ace filmmaker Karan Johar has also started blogging, but says he is doing it to put his thoughts into writing rather than vocalising them all the time.

“I’ve always been a closet writer. I’ve been offered newspaper columns that I almost did, but never got down to,” Karan told IANS.

“I feel a blog would be a good way to express my thoughts on cinema. Things that don’t routinely get space in the traditional media outlets these days,” added the director who is all set to direct his next “My Name is Khan” with Shah Rukh Khan.

Karan promises to be regular.

“But not compulsive. I don’t see myself blogging from my sets when I start shooting ‘Khan…’ or when I’m abroad for my various events.”
