Must watch: Hottest ad ever; Rakhi's new butt

Last updated on: August 6, 2011 09:37 IST

Is this the hottest ad ever?


This video of Bipasha posing topless has emerged recently and raised many an eyebrow.

The dusky actress featured in the New York Lotto commercial, along with Vivek Oberoi , in the initial days of her modelling career. Since the ad was very bold, the question remained whether the actors had indeed shot for it.

In a statement, Bipasha's manager confirmed,"Bipasha had done this ad in 1999 when she was modelling for Ford Modelling Agency in New York. It was done as an international assignment and was meant for the international market. I don't know why such an old ad has surfaced now."

The ad was reportedly shot by Ken Nahoum in India .Like Sherlyn Chopra's nude posture, Bipasha's ad is also likely to create ripples on the net.

Nagesh Kukunoor may not have made brilliant cinema he's known to make in his latest works (8X10 Tasveer, Bombay To Bangkok) but the director isn't done with films yet.

He recently launched the trailer of his latest movie, Mod, which is a suspense love story. The film stars Ayesha Takia and MTV veejay Rannvijay.

''Mod is my first love story," Kukunoor said at the launch in Cinemax, Versova, a suburb in Mumbai. "I had always said I would never make a love story but here I found something worth telling."

Mod is a love story between two unlikely people, set in the backdrop of a small hill station.

"I usually like to set my stories in these little towns, a kind of Utopian India where everyone is nice and everything is fine," Kukunoor explained.

Mod is the official remake of a Taiwanese film called Keeping Watch.

In the film, Ayesha runs a small clock-repairing shop. She meets a stranger Rannvijay, who comes to the shop daily to repair his wristwatch. A romance starts, which leads to a dramatic turn of events.

"Mod returns to the space I dealt with and enjoyed a lot of success with, like Dor," Kukunoor said. "Not only are they three-letter words but I'm using the same tag line as well: How far can you go to save your love."

Ayesha, who was last seen in the 2009 blockbuster Wanted, makes a comeback to the movies with Mod.

Prev     Next

Seems like it's just another day, another eyebrow-raising news from Rakhi Sawant these days.

Rakhi has now declared that she wants to get butt implants to promote her line of C-Strings. She also wants to get her butt insured, just like Jennifer Lopez.

Just last week, the camera-loving item girl had claimed that she wanted to marry none other than yoga guru Baba Ramdev, and that she was attracted to his eyes.

She said that she used to be in love with Rahul Gandhi ,but has now moved on to Ramdev.

The item girl was at a promotional event for her new television show Gajab Desh Ki Ajab Kahaaniyaan.

Speaking of which, the producers of the show are facing a tough time, courtesy its anchor, Rakhi Sawant. Apparently, she wants her producers to buy her C-string panties and has given an ultimatum that she wouldn't shoot without them on.

The controversy queen has demanded C-string panties in red, green and purple colours, which are very popular in Hollywood but rarely available in India.

Moreover, her constant demands for exorbitant clothes and accessories, leading to sky rocketing bills, have also miffed the crew.

It's hard to tell where Ms Sawant is headed to with her C-string and yoga guru fascination.

'You stare at me not because of my clothes but because I'm a woman', read one of the placards as the now famous 'slutwalk' protests against sexual violence reached New Delhi.

Cutting across age and gender, protesters marched to the Jantar Manter under the 'Slutwalk Arthaat Besharmi Morcha' campaign to raise their voice against the attitude of blaming rape or sexual harassment on any aspect of a woman's appearance.

In Delhi, the name of the campaign was changed to 'SlutWalk Arthaat Besharmi Morcha' from the original 'Slutwalk' after activists protested the use of the term 'slut'.

The wannabe model Poonam Pandey who promised to strip were India to win the World Cup, was also a prominent participant in the Besharmi Morcha.

The organisers believe that the 'Slutwalk' was a success and that they had "partially" achieved what they were aiming at.

"Our aim was to get our message through to the people and we are elated to see such a massive response from people and the media. We are getting even more support online. It's an awesome feeling," said Karan, who is a part of the organising team.
