Mumbai, Aug 26 (IANS) Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who made a style statement with her hot pants and halter tops in 'Dostana', wasn't allowed to wear a pair of jeans at home.
The 27-year-old actress, who was brought up in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, faced these restrictions at home after returning from the US, where she had gone to do her high school.
'I wasn't allowed to wear short skirts and then my jeans were also confiscated. And my mother got 12 salwar kameez sets made for me so that I wore only those because when I used to go to school, guys used to follow me,' Priyanka revealed on Farah Khan's chat show 'Tere Mere Beach Mein'.
But that phase is over for Priyanka who is counted among the most glamorous actresses in Bollywood today.
She will be seen with boxing champion Vijender Singh on the show on STAR Plus Saturday 9 p.m.
No exercise without trainer for Sophie Chaudhary
Sophie Chaudhary doesn't do her workout sincerely unless her gym trainer coaxes her to push her limits, says a source close to the VJ-turned-actress.
'Sophie usually gives up her workouts after a few counts. And the only one person who can push to her to do extra number of counts is her gym trainer Satish. In fact, Satish knows Sophie so well that she can't even make any excuse and wriggle out of those extra workouts. Also Satish is the only one Sophie listens to,' said the source.
Apparently Sophie was also heard saying that if she obeyed any other man the way she obeyed Satish, she would land up with a boyfriend.
The actress will soon be seen in Big Picture and Maruti Picture's 'Daddy Cool'.
Nauheed Cyrusi happy playing small roles
Actress Nauheed Cyrusi, best remembered for her sweet and demure looks in the song 'Piya basanti re', says she prefers small parts in movies rather than a full-fledged lead role.
'I think it doesn't make any difference if an actor is playing a tiny part in a movie. Times have changed. You don't need to be the lead heroine to be noticed. I feel it's better to play small roles in a good film rather than play a lead in a film that the audience will never go to watch,' Nauheed told IANS.
She has recently grabbed a part in Rensil D'Silva's project starring Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan and is also playing Sohail Khan's love interest in the forthcoming film 'Kissan'.
Nauheed will also be seen performing daredevilry in Colors' action adventure reality show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi - Level 2', which is hosted by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar.
