Bollywood stars put on their student hats
The B-town folks have gone back to class. From Kareena to Koena, from Aamir to Abhay, everyone is learning something or the other, be it for their films or to ‘expand their horizon’.
The latest is Kareena Kapoor, who is taking belly dancing classes for her IIFA stage show. Aamir Khan is learning skiing and his Ghajini co-star Asin is trying to kick a**. While Koena Mitra is learning ‘deep’ secrets, diving under the sea, superstar John Abraham is taking lessons in acting. And Abhay Deol is learning metal works in New York!
The petite southern siren is learning martial arts for a new movie. Her spokesperson confirms, “She is being trained by professionals for her Telugu film 19th Step.”
The actor will get a private pilot licence after a 12-day course. “The flying school is near Bhopal. I’ve been crazy about planes and wanted to do this for a long time,” he says.
Though she played a beach babe in Dhoom 2, Bips has actually only just learnt swimming! “She only got down to doing it properly just a while ago,” her spokesperson says.
He has enrolled in an acting workshop for his film 1:800 Love. He plays a London-based character and the workshop will change his body language and speech pattern.
He has taken a fancy to skiing while on holiday with his kids. “It is absolutely one of the best things I have done in a long time,” Aamir writes on his blog http://www.aamirkhan.com.
