Highlight Story


Sonakshi Sinha has backed out of an endorsement deal with a clothing brand owing to her weight issues. When the curvy actress was asked to shed some flab, she reportedly refused to do so.

"She has been the face of the brand for some time along with Hrithik Roshan. However, for the latest ad campaign, the makers needed someone slimmer. So they asked Sona to work on losing a few inches," a source told Mumbai Mirror.

The Rowdy Rathore star has opted out of the campaig. "She is no more the brand ambassador. So, I can tell you for sure that she is not doing the new campaign. Her contract with the brand had expired and we have decided not to renew it. Hrithik is the other brand ambassador with Sonakshi. We don't know whether he is still on board or not," her spokesperson Bunty Sajdeh told the tabloid.

Deepika Padukone, who's known for her fab body, is most likely to replace the Sinha girl.

Malaika Arora to make appearance in Dabangg 2 item song
She danced in Munni Badnaam Hui alongside Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg (2010). And Malaika Arora-Khan’s item number went on to become a chartbuster. Now, she is back in the sequel with the song, Pandeyji Seeti Mare. Even though Malaika and her actor-director hubby Arbaaz Khan are tightlipped about it, we have learned that her presence in the film was never in doubt.

"Malaika has wrapped up her portion of the song. Arbaaz and Salman (actor Salman Khan) had always wanted to retain her in the film since Munni Badnaam Hui had become such a huge hit. They think she is their good luck charm, but she won’t be there in the entire song. However, it will surely remind audiences of Munni’s madness, colour and energy," says an insider close to the unit. The song is being wrapped up at Mehboob Studio in Bandra. Besides Salman and Malaika, Sonakshi Sinha, who plays Chulbul’s wife in the film, is part of the number. FULL STORY
