Poonam Pandey calls herself ‘stupid’
Poonam Pandey sent her fans on the virtual world into a tizzy with “Jingle b**bs”, her racy twist to Christmas carol “Jingle bells”. She says she sometimes find her videos stupid, but is glad her fans love them.
The actress, who has oft grabbed headlines for her bold nature, enjoys a wide fan following of 726,000 on Twitter, and the video has registered over one million views on YouTube.
“All my videos are getting good hits. It feels good that you upload a 47-second video which is so stupid and I’ll myself term it stupid, but people love it. Though I’m stupid, but people still love me,” she said.
Poonam, who made her debut down south with the action romance “Malini & Co” last year, didn’t expect the response to “Jingle b**bs”.
She said: “I never expected that I’ll receive such a great response. I thought it was a stupid video, it was silly. It was only done in a funny manner because I know what I’m doing. I didn’t expect it to go viral.”
Meanwhile, Poonam has also signed two “huge” projects, but she can’t reveal much about them at the moment. She also has the film “Helen” in her kitty.
Katrina Kaif believes in loving passionately
Actress Katrina Kaif, who is reportedly dating Ranbir Kapoor, says she believes in loving passionately and calls herself a “die-hard romantic” person.
The actress hopes her next film “Fitoor” puts out this message.
“Yes, I’m a die-hard romantic person. I hope it comes out from the film. May be that’s the intention,” Katrina said here.
“Fitoor”, which means passion or obsession, is the story of a budding artiste Noor (Aditya Roy Kapoor) who falls in love with Firdaus (Katrina). And the trailer paints a whimsical picture with snow and a scenic backdrop. It also hints at the politics surrounding Kashmir.
The film also stars Tabu, who is seen as Katrina’s mother in the film.
Talking about her character, Katrina said: “I think it really helps if you believe in love that way. And that’s the way I see love. I think love is life, love is passion and inherently I believe that. So for me, I think without that belief and conviction, of course it’s hard to portray a character passionately.”
Based on Charles Dickens’s novel “Great Expectations” and directed by Abhishek Kapoor, “Fitoor” is slated to release on February 12.
