German actress and supermodel Claudia Ciesla says that she is shocked by Abhishek Bachchan’s statements that she is a nude model and that he has never met her. The actress, who was in the Capital to promote her film Karma says, “I met many Bollywood personalities at Cannes and Abhishek was one of them. I met him for two minutes and we talked and shook hands. I didn’t go running to him...and if someone clicks our picture, it’s not my fault.” Ciesla says that Abhishek’s claim that he never met her is “ridiculous”.
“I don’t know what’s the relation between him and his wife and I don’t want to get involved either, but calling me a nude model is a lie. Maybe Aishwarya said something when our pictures came out, but that doesn’t give him the right to call me a nude model.” Claudia had done a topless shoot for a magazine four years ago but she says, “You cannot compare topless with nude”, she says. “It’s common in Europe. But it’s different here.”
Since a lot is being written about her close association with Salman Khan, we ask her whom she would pick given a choice— Salman or Abhishek? “Of course Salman,” she says. “I am not Abhishek’s fan. How can he call me his fan when we don’t know each other personally? He’s a good actor but I love his father. When Amitabh Bachchan talks, I am just fascinated. His eyes play and he is like a guru.”
What about the question everyone is asking — is she Salman’s new babe? “I’m Salman’s friend and Katrina is his girlfriend. There’s a huge difference. Salman and Katrina are very nice people. Salman is gentle and Katrina is very down to earth. She gave me a lot of advice. In fact, Salman told me how Katrina made it big in Bollywood. He promised that if I needed anything, he’ll help. It was so nice of him to call his father especially to meet me. He also made me talk to his uncle in Germany. I felt so welcomed.”
