Brand AB Jr
Others are winning awards for their acting prowess,whereas Abhishek Bachchan wins them for endorsements. Junior B was recently declared the winner of the ‘Best Brand Ambassador of the Year’ Award at the NDTV Techlife Awards,for Idea and Motorola. At the ceremony,he said,“The Idea campaign carries a socially relevant message in today’s commercial environment and the brilliant concept of encouraging two-way communication between the government and people has connected with millions across India.” All that is very well,but we’re sure AB’s baby would be jumping with joy if he won awards for his movies. Never too late.

Dialect queen
Divya Dutta has proved her versatility time and again and left the audience as well as the critics spellbound with her performances. It’s safe to say that her voice-modulation skills are unmatched in B-Town. Her ability to voice different dialects with ease has won her a lot of praise. Sporting a Pakistani Punjabi dialect in Veer Zaara,a Haryanvi accent in Delhi-6,a Rajasthani accent in Haat: The Weekly Baazar,a Malayalam accent in The Last Lear to her latest Gujju accent in Subhash Ghai’s Hello Darling,Divya has done it all. Subhash was apparently very happy with Divya’s performance and was heard saying that she brought the house down with her perfect take on Gujjus. But will that be enough to garner an award or two? Going by Tinseltown standards,we guess so.

No-no to nudity
While we’ve been busy speculating that Kangana Ranaut will be doing a nude scene in Telugu film Ek Niranjan,the petite actor has stated that she has no nude scenes in this or any of her upcoming films. In the film,directed by Puri Jagannath,Kangana essays the role of a guitar instructor opposite South Indian actor Prabhas. She’s also clarified that she will not be taking up any role that requires her to shed clothes.
