Miss India is no ticket to Bollywood: Pooja Chopra
It is always intriguing to hear challenges from different people, then you say to yourself “ok it isn’t just happening to me”
Hope you guys enjoy this Q&A xoxo Rose
Though she shares the same surname with Priyanka and Parineeti, bagging a role in Bollywood was not easy for Miss India 2009 winner Pooja Chopra.
The sexy lass, who made her debut with a special appearance in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion, in 2008, had to wait for four-long years before bagging a lead role in Commando. In Ranchi, for the promotions of an apparel brand she endorses, the model-actress talked about her injury, her upcoming movies, life, career and so on. Excerpts:
So, how’s your Bollywood career shaping up?
It was a good start for me in Bollywood, with Commando, but then I injured my leg and everything went for a toss. However, my life is back on track now. Commando 2 is in the scripting stage at the moment. Soon, I’ll be shooting for Roopnagar Ke Cheete. It’s a rom-com, also starring Freddy Daruwala, who played the villain in Commando and popular Bengali actor Samadarshi Dutta. Besides, Suketu Parikh’s Zindagi Ek Pal is going on the floors next month.
Since none of your films are releasing this year, aren’t you a bit apprehensive?
I had got injured in the leg a few weeks before the Miss India finale. The second injury though, was a bit serious as the ligaments were torn. I had to undergo an operation to set everything right. Even then, the restlessness got better of me and I attended a few events on crutches and walkers. I had to go for yet another operation. Now that I’m alright, I’m going to be back in Bollywood with a bang!
Don’t you think that a Miss India title is a sure-shot ticket to Bollywood?
Everyone thinks so. But then it is not the reality. Of course, the Miss India title makes you a celebrity overnight. You get to meet everyone and everyone is willing to meet you. However, the fact is, Miss India or no Miss India, you’ll bag a role only if you are suitable for a certain character and can work hard on it.
Why is it that most of the pageant winners land up in tinsel town?
If you’re in class first, you’ll move only to class two unless you fail. So, after winning a pageant of this magnitude, it’s not possible for anyone to go back to college or do a normal nine-to-five job. You’ll be spoilt with all the attention. And since Miss India already makes a celebrity out of you, acting is only a natural progression as I see it.
Tell us about your fitness regime?
There is no way to maintain the same regimen now as that training was way too disciplined. You had to get up at six in morning and hit the gym. With all the travelling and shooting now, its simply not possible to maintain that schedule but with all the knowledge I got during the training, I still try to keep myself adequately nourished.
What kind of roles you’re looking forward to doing? I’m a die-hard fan of romantic comedies. Even though Commando was labelled as an action film, my character was different. I’m looking forward to more such roles in the future.

The Psychology of a ‘Human Barbie
Lolita Richi, a 16-year-old from Ukraine, is the latest (and youngest) “Human Barbie” to emerge.
Lolita has a 20-inch waist, a 32F bra size, and wears color contact lenses to emulate the wide-eyed doll-look of her fictional idol. The teenager insists that she hasn’t gone under the knife and that her photos haven’t been digitally manipulated, but her proportions seem to indicate otherwise. Dr. Anthony Youn, a Michigan-based, board-certified plastic surgeon who has not treated Lolita, told Yahoo Health that it would be “virtually impossible” to look the way that she does naturally.
The high school student isn’t the first person to transform herself into a living Mattel doll. Valeria Lukyanova, 23, is probably the most famous and was recently featured in a GQ profile, while 34-year-old Justin Jedilca is considered to be the “Human Ken doll” and has undergone more than 150 plastic surgeries. But it’s Lolita’s age that makes the whole situation all the more shocking. In the United States, cosmetic procedures cannot be performed on those younger than 18 without parental consent and many doctors simply won’t perform elective surgeries on younger patients even with the parents’ consent. Youn said he finds it disturbing that another physician would perform these kinds of invasive operations on a child. “She’s not done maturing both physically and mentally,” he added
Congrats to my cuz Harris and his lovely wife Stasha on the birth of their beautiful baby girl Scarlett

Anaconda” was co-produced by Da Internz and Polow Da Don. Forthis song she flipped Sir Mix-A-Lot’s enduring classic “Baby Got Back” into “Anaconda,” a swan dive back into the gleeful raunchiness of her early mixtape days.

This story is heart breaking. There are so many women out there who would love to become a mother but due to circumstances beyond their control they are unable to. While some others who have the blessing to become a
mom do such horrible things to their kids.
