Farah Khan 'kidnaps' the media
Here's what your favourite celebrities have been up to.
The Tees Maar Khan music launch was a signature Farah Khan event with pomp, show and innovation. The team launched the music on a train ride from Mumbai's Chhhatrapati Shivaji Terminus to Lonavla.
"Since the movie was about a train robbery, we thought we would kidnap the media in a train," Farah Khan said.
The highlight of the Tees Maar Khan music track seems to be Sheila ki Jawani, a song that is already making waves like Dabangg's Munni Badnam Hui. "It is a part of the film; not an item number," Farah said. "Katrina is playing a wannabe actress, who is offered a movie called Sheila Ki Jawani."
The director couldn't stop raving about Katrina's efforts for the song. "Let me say it on record that, Katrina is the most-hard working actress; she worked very hard to get the body required for the costume," she added.
"I was initially extremely nervous," said Katrina, "but later she (Farah) was co-operative and didn't shout at me even once. I don't know whether I performed that well or she is being sweet to me."
The actress added that working with the team was a pleasure. "When I fell ill because of the work, they were really sweet and took care of me," she said.
Akshay, Farah said, was in his prankster mode on the sets. "Akshay took my cell, and sent 'I Love you' messages to random people," she recalled.
