After morphed Sunny Leone images, actress Arshi Khan haunted by fake profiles on Facebook

This time over Mumbai-based, Bhopal-born 25-year-old Sunny Leone-look-alike Arshi Khan is not taking things lying down. After Arshi complained to the Mumbai police Cyber Crime cell, about fake, morphed images bearing her face and Sunny Leone’s nude images, now fake profiles on Facebook have started making an appearance. The actress has been running from pillar to post for the last one month to get the fake morphed nude images removed from some pages on Facebook and the web. But every time she manages to convince Facebook to delete the images, they appear elsewhere on some different page. Now she is plagued by fake profiles as well.

Says Arshi Khan speaking to content agency Newz66.com, “About one month ago, a friend informed me of some images on a couple of Facebook pages that bore my face with the body of some porn star. First I did not believe him, but then he downloaded the images and mailed them to me. After that I began to scout for the images on Facebok and located them on three semi porn pages. I reported those images to Facebook and requested all my friends to do so. And surely enough after about a week the entire page disappeared, only to appear again after ten days in a different avatar. There are about 100 images of Indian women in different states of undress, some of them almost nude and 2-3 photographs amongst those bear my facial image. Every time I report the page or my morphed images, the get pulled down by Facebook only to appear again on a different page. The pages bear names like Indian bhabi or something like that. A social media expert I spoke to opined that these morphed images have got circulated to a gang of delinquent or rogue social media people who earn money by creating fake pages with semi nude images on them and generating “likes” on them. The likes generated are transferred to clients pages using scripts and other programming. They then charge unsuspecting clients huge sums for such fraudulently generated ‘Facebook Likes’.”

The actress is busy mentally tuning up for India’s first commercial bollywood 4D historical film, which goes on floors in March 2014. “It is a Rs 120-crore project featuring big names and I want to make sure I am in the best frame of mind. Right now I do not want to be disturbed as I have to psyche myself for the project.”

A flustered Arshi Khan finally approached the Mumbai police Cyber Crime cell for help. “ Earlier, I did not want to go to the police as it involves a lot of paper work and several trips to the police station to record statements, hand over printouts, etc. I am busy with my shoots, two Tamil films and the two beauty pageants I am participating in this year. However, enough is enough. I have decided to bring the police into this matter. I want to send out a stern message through the media to the scoundrels behind the prank – cease and desist or else you will be behind bars very soon,” a visibly angry Arshi Khan told Newz66.com.

Arshi Khan was born in Afghanistan but came in India when she was just 4years old as her parents migrated back in India to Bhopal, she finished her school and college in Bhopal itself, and was attracted towards theater since her early childhood. Acting brought her to Mumbai where she bagged many assignments in a short span of six months. She was introduced to the famous stage personality Janab Ehsaan Chishti, a famous director in theater in Bhopal. Says Arshi, “Ehsaan ji thought that I have a attractive face and figure and if I try I can possibly make it as an actor.” He used to instigate me, and it was at Ehsaan ji’s provocation that I started acting in various dramas in Bhopal city. I started get offers for modeling, and that’s how got assignments for modeling for “Madame”, “Diesel Genes”, “Pepe Jeans”, “Agarwal Jewelers” and many more.” She simultaneously got a break in a Tamil Film “Malli Mishtu” where she played the lead role opposite Tamil Star Naresh.

Tusshar Kapoor Plays the perfect Host To his US University Legal Guardian.

Actor Tusshar Kapoor, who studied in Michigan before making his foray into acting, has a visitor from United States-his legal guardian and the actor is going out of his way to play the perfect host.

The actor is busy taking her out to different eateries in Mumbai, to give her a taste of Indian cuisine. “Tusshar is keen to treat Pramila to different Indian delicacies. He is taking out time to show her some of the unconventional restaurants in Mumbai, which normally don’t get listed in city guides,” says a source close to the actor.

It seems that Pramila was the 37-year-old actor’s legal guardian when he was studying for his MBA programme in Michigan. Over time, Tusshar became very close to her and considers her a close friend. “Pramila visits India every three to five years and ensures that she meets Tusshar,” says the source.

Not only this, the actor also made sure that she was put up at his place so that she has a comfortable stay in Mumbai. When asked about this, Tusshar says, “She is a lovely lady and I had a very nice time having her as my legal guardian in the US. She used to stay half-an-hour’s drive away and I used to visit her quite regularly. She loves India so I am showing her around now.”

Priyanka Chopra wows all with her Moulin Rouge act in Gunday’s Asalaam e Ishqum.

While Priyanka Chopra set temperatures soaring in Ram Chahe Leela that went on to receive an unprecedented reception,the actress and international artist now turns on the heat in Gunday’s Asalaam e Ishqum,where the headturner sports several outfits ala Moulin Rouge.

Inspired by the chic burlesque acts of the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret of Paris ,Priyanka Chopra styled by Shubarna , looks smoking hot as she sets the dance floor ablaze sporting everything from a bikini crop,risqué corsets,fishnet stockings to Chicago-inspired outfits .If that wasn’t all,the actress trained and rehearsed with French cabaret dancers,who were especially flown down to be part of the song.

And while Priyanka makes it look easy, the actress in fact had a tough time shooting for the song as her father passed away 10 days before the shoot,leaving Priyanka no choice but to work around the clock and rehearse for the song during the night.The costumes too had to be created overnight .

All praise for the actress says director Ali Abbas Zafar, ““ I really admire Priyanka for the courage and determination that she displayed during the shooting of the song. She put in all her pain and converted it into an intense energy, which has reflected in Asalaam e Ishqum”.

While Shraddha Kapoor has been getting a lot of positive feedback for her secret temptation deo advertisement from friends and family, there is a special person who loves the advertisement the most.

Yes, it is the pretty, young actor’s mother, who loves the advertisement the most. Shraddha’s mother personally loves the song that has been used in the background of the advertisement.

The song has always been Shraddha’s mom’s favourite and now that her daughter features in the advertisement makes her like it even more.

Mommy Kapoor gets a smile on her face each time she watches the advertisement on television.

Also Shraddha Kapoor was the perfect choice for the advertisement as it required someone young, likeable and relatable. The actress looks absolutely stunning in the advertisement.

Her simple, girl next door image has worked very well for her. Be it the massive success of Aashiqui 2 or her recent advertisements. She has managed to bring a lot of energy and freshness to the projects she has taken up.

We all know how Arjun Kapoor lost oodles of weight before he entered the show business some years back. However, when the actor heard the script of Gunday he was thinking how he would do so much running that was required in the film.

In the beginning days of the shoot, when Ranveer and Arjun used to run together, Arjun realized how running was his shortcoming vis-à-vis Ranveer Singh who has always been an athlete.

Arjun Kapoor would start panting in the first minute of running itself. He surely did lose a lot of weight but physical fitness was something he worked on after taking up Gunday.

So, Arjun started training extensively to first start running for longer duration and once he achieved that, he started working on his performance while running as an actor.

On the last day of shoot, when they were doing a running sequence, Arjun overtook Ranveer Singh and felt very proud about it.

Running in films is an art that needs to be learnt and mastered. On the last day of the shoot when I was able to run neck to neck with Ranveer Singh, I was happy that I had finally achieved something.
