A fortnight ago, she was clarifying to every second person that her voice in "Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya" was not dubbed. And now the same rumours have surfaced about her voice in Ram Gopal Varma's "Sarkar", reports Bollywood Trade.

Things have reached such a pass that the actress, who hails from London, is now said to be planning to make an official announcement that her original voice has been retained in both the films.

She recently said in an interview that she was conversant with Hindi, though her diction wasn't as good as seasoned actors like Amitabh Bachchan. The actress has signed films in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.

Shilpa Shetty's dilemma

With two major releases, "Dus" and "Fareb", on the same day, Shilpa Shetty is in a fix on how to make it to two premieres.

She says "Dus" offered her a great opportunity as an artiste while "Fareb" is important because it is the first time she gets to work with sister Shamita, reports Bollywood Trade.

"'Dus' is an intrigue film, very intense, stylishly shot in which I am playing more of a hero. I have never looked the same in any other film and never essayed such a role in my career... On the other hand, the character in 'Fareb' has totally different shades to it, of a doctor involved in social service who dotes on her family," says Shilpa.

She denies rumours that she took the initiative in doing "Fareb" to give a boost to Shamita's career. "On the contrary, I had to literally plead with her to do the film since she was reluctant to take up the role at the first go... She doesn't need anyone to boost her career prospects."

Anuj Sawhney goes places

"Naina" may not have been a hit, but the film has proved to be lucky for its hero Anuj Sawhney with some prized assignments coming his way. To begin with, he has been signed by a major production house in Hollywood for a project that is scheduled to go on the floors in September.

Anuj, who was in London recently to discuss dates for the film, will be seen playing the role of an anti-hero for the first time on screen, reports Bollywood Trade.

On the Hindi film front too, Anuj has been signed by three big banners, one of them being Harmesh Malhotra, who returns to filmmaking after almost three years.

"It is a big project but I cannot divulge details at the moment about either this film or the other two films. I have seen that there's many a slip between the cup and the lip and it's best to talk about a film only after it is half way through," he smiles.

Right now, Anuj is eagerly looking forward to "The Postman And The Prostitute" with Sushmita Sen. According to Anuj, the two have become the best of friends after the time they spent with each other during the making of the film.
