Kareena shoots for the item number – Fevicol – TOI

Barely a month since her wedding and Kareena Kapoor is already busy shooting. And the first assignment she has taken up post marriage is the much publicised item song in Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2 – Fevicol

Bebo along with the crew had been busy shooting the dance number that promises to be more ‘entertaining’ than Munni in Dabangg for the last two days in Mumbai’s Mehboob Studios when Mirror lensman Raju Shelar managed to get a sneak preview of the actress on the sets. 

In the studio premises, we spotted the actress sporting a nose ring and a 70’s style bouffant. On investigating further, we learnt that the song will have a very ‘Lucknowi’ flavour to it. A source told Mirror, “The sets for the song has been inspired by the ‘gallis of Lucknow’.

The dancers are also dressed accordingly. Manish Malhotra, who designed Bebo’s wardrobe for the song flew down to Lucknow specially to acquire elements for the dress.” 

Though the picture, taken in between the shots shows the actress sporting a oversized shirt, in the song, Bebo will sport a black lungi similar to the one her sister Karisma wore in the 90s’ chartbuster Sarkailiyo Khatiya. “Manish has taken special care in the detailing of Bebo’s attire,” added the source. 

According to sources, the song has a very rustic look and feel. We also learnt that Bebo would complete the dance number before leaving for her honeymoon. Now that’s what we call dedication.

After Katrina, will Salman Khan take over her sister Isabella career – emirates247

Considering he has played godfather to Katrina, it’s only natural that he’d step in for gen-next

He’s known as the man with the Midas touch, miraculously altering the fate of any actor from doom to super-stardom.

From his “ex-lover” Katrina Kaif to little-known South Indian star Asin, Salman Khan has been instrumental in taking newcomers under his wing and transforming them into big stars.

And, now with Katrina’s kid sister Isabelle gearing up for the spotlight, opposite veteran Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan for a crossover project, we are certain that Salman is gearing to play godfather.

Considering he did it for her big sister, he’d do it again for Isabelle.

When Katrina and Salman had parted ways, industry insiders had speculated that Katrina would step in as producer and use her Bollywood clout to help her sister.

There were even talks of a big budgeted movie directed by Ayan Mukerjee, but now that she has reconnected with Salman post ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, it does appear that he will play a crucial role in Isabelle’s Bollywood career.

With the movie industry not favourable to newcomers, Katrina will surely ensure that Isabelle gets the “Khan” backing that she had once enjoyed.

Initially there were reports of Isabelle kick-starting her career by being a part of the Indian reality show ‘Big Boss4’, but that never materialized with industry insiders claiming Salman was reluctant to put her through the grueling test.

Apart from an international degree in acting, Isabelle has also had her share of ill-fortune in B-town, with an MMS scandal surrounding her. It was, however, cleared after big sister stepped in to prove the video was fabricated.

Controversy isn’t new to the Kaif household, with Katrina’s debut in the raunchy ‘Boom’ being rebuked by critics and the audience. She was even shunted to do obscure South Indian movies.

It was only until Salman stepped into her life, and movies with David Dhawan’s  ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’ in 2005, that Katrina started making giant leaps in her career.

From then on, she has made the right movie choices with back-to-back box-office hits, pitching her in the top league today. “Had it not been for Salman Khan, she would not have made it in Bollywood,” reveals a source.

“It’s evident that the tag of being Salman Khan’s girlfriend helped her in bagging films of top directors.”

Although his influence is evident, Salman has never taken credit for it. “Katrina is what she is because of her hard work and I don’t feel I have contributed to her success,” he had told the Indian media.

From dictating what dress to wear, to what movies to sign, Salman still controls her movie choices. “I don’t want her to start doing heroine-oriented roles just yet. No point doing it just for the sake of it,” he insists, during a media interview.

“She is making the right choices now. She can take on heroine-oriented roles later in her career, when the roles have some meaning,” he adds.

Looking at how Salman has converted Katrina into an overnight success, it’s evident that Isabelle will only stand to benefit from this legendary ‘Khan’ connection. http://goo.gl/UGYYU
