Sharma's big secret is out

Anushka Sharma's big secret is outAnushka Sharma's Bollywood story - from a dream debut with Yash Raj Films to mutltiple hits - has been an incredible one. And now the actress is opening up about how it all happened. Anushka features on the next episode of Simi Garewal's show 'Simi Selects India's Most Desirable" on Star World and she shares her incredible 'secret' on it!

Anushka, who made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' revealed that she was reading the book 'The Secret' when she auditioned for the film. “When a Yash Raj movie starts, there is this logo that comes up so I used to keep watching it again and again. So when the film started and that logo played first and I was like wow... it actually happened.

Anushka added that she got very emotional when she actually got the role. “I was driving back from Yash Raj studios when Adi (Aditya Chopra) told me that I'd got the role. I couldn’t drive anymore because I was crying so I stopped the car and pulled over. I called my mother and told her that I got this film. Do you know what my mother told me? She said that there was this turtle that used to be in my room - I think its some Feng Shui thing - you open the turtle and you put a wish in the turtle. And when it comes true you take it out. She's never told me about this. But after I got the film she opened it and she showed it to me and she had written there - I hope that my daughter stars in a Yash Raj film. I swear! It’s unbelievable! I think somewhere she always wanted me to be an actress."

Here's to Anushka sharing more secrets (featuring Ranveer Singh, perhaps?) on Simi Garewal's show.

The show has already featured Ranbir Kapoor, Sidhartha Mallaya, Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, John Abraham and Abhay Deol spilling some surprising details. Watch this space for updates!

Asin: Subhaan is my new favourite

She’s considered to be Salman Khan’s favourite leading lady, and also Akshay Kumar’s. But ask Asin who her favourite leading man is, and the reply will probably be a prompt “Subhaan”. No, he isn’t an upcoming actor you’re yet to hear of — he’s just producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s nine-year-old son! Subhaan, who has accompanied Sajid on the Housefull 2 shoot, seems so smitten by the pretty Asin that he spends all his time with her, unit sources say. “During the London schedule of the film, Subhaan just didn’t leave Asin’s side. He showered her with attention and brought her everything she needed,” our source said.

Asin: Subhaan is my new favouriteNo wonder then, that Asin was overheard saying that while Sallu and Akki were the perfect gentlemen to work with, Subhaan has by far surpassed them all. Asin on her part, is quite kicked about her latest gehri dosti. “I am fond of kids, and Subhaan is no different. He’s polite and never throws tantrums,” she says.

Sulagna Panigrahi gets her big break with 'Murder 2'Mahesh Bhatt's upcoming film Murder 2, the sequel to Murder, is studded with lot of fresh things. Right from the thrilling script to hottest pairing of Emraan Hashmi & Jacqueline, it has it all. But what caught our attention is Bhatts' new find - the very beautiful Sulagna, who makes her debut with Murder 2.

Unlike other debutantes, who have less scope to show their bit with the first film itself, Sulagna has a significant role in director Mohit Suri's sequel. The delicate looking lady will be seen doing some dangerous stunts. However, she never showed a sign of panic and with full gusto performed the daredevil stunts. Everyone from the Murder 2 team swears for her bravery. After all, the pretty petite, Sulagna comes from a much disciplined army family background and well acquainted to deal with it.

Is Padukone copying Kaif?

If you receive a request from actor Deepika Padukone, what do you do? You grant it right away! This must be the exact feeling enveloping director Prakash Jha, when Deepika requested him for something. While most actors do it by reserving their demands on their directors, Deepy charmingly requested her director to get her way. Okay, now not holding on to the surprise any further, Deepika has a special wish.

Is Deepika Padukone copying Katrina Kaif?The actor wanted a song like 'Mora Piya' from the film 'Rajneeti' to be picturised on her — just like the way it was picturised on actors Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Known for the melodious music in his films, Jha, for his upcoming film 'Aarakshan', was surprised when he heard of Deepy's request. A source adds, "Deepika is a smart girl and knows exactly how to put forward her wishes. Before the film's shooting, Deepika requested via sms to Prakash Jha to feature a love ballad on her, with a happy face smiley at the end. And her wish was granted. It was bound to — as where most actors reserve peculiar demands for their directors and are in the news for their tantrums. It was clear that Deepika's charming approach to get her special song worked."

When asked about the request, Deepika said, "I remember how 'Mora piya' was such a rage. I remember messaging him (Prakash Jha) to please give me a good romantic song in his new film because Prakashji has a really good sense of music. I was really looking forward to shooting this song and it's turned out amazing. Till now, Mora piya was always played on loop on my mp3 player wherever I was travelling. But now its 'Seedhe point pe aaona', which is such a playful and cute romantic song."

The song features Deepika opposite actor Saif Ali Khan. Just like the Ranbir-Kat chemistry, there is a lot of buzz about Deepika-Saif's camaraderie, which was visible in their earlier film 'Love Aaj Kal'. But we'll have to wait and watch to know if this number becomes a hit amongst the youth... given that the song is a result of Deepika's sweet persuasion.
