Why Gauhar Khan is opening up way after Rocket Singh’s release

All this while, Gauhar Khan preferred to remain mum about Rocket Singh and the buzz about her so-called ‘cold war’ with Shazahn Padamsee who also features in the film.

“I was under contract with Yash Raj not to speak till the film releases. I wanted to respect it even though others may not have,” says the model-turned-actress. “I did not want to have any bad vibes around nor upset anyone. I only wanted my performance to do the talking which I am glad it did.”

At a private screening she received compliments from Yash Chopra as well as her co-star Ranbir Kapoor’s parents Rishi and Neetu Singh. “They telling me that I had done well in the film was huge for me. I was so jittery but the response has been overwhelming.”

She states that after the screening, she went up to Shazahn and wished her luck for her first film. “I don’t even know Shazahn and we didn’t share screen space. Nor were there any film-related events that we would be together. So I really don’t know where all this crept up? Guess this is what happens when there is a PR machinery at work.”

At the moment, it’s only acting for her. “The fashion world and ramp is out for me now. I only want to concentrate on movies.”

She was picked up for Rocket Singh during her television outing Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa. Most viewers would remember her as an extremely emotional contestant who cried often. “But that’s how I am, even off-screen. I always get emotional. I cried even after Rocket Singh’s screening!” she says.

Dil Bole Haddipa gets U/A certificate for Rakhi Sawant and Sherlyn Chopra’s skimpy outfits


By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; September 16, 2009)


Yash Raj Films, known for its clean romantic entertainers and their candy floss films, was extremely upbeat about Dil Bole Haddipa’s release. However, the film has got a U/A certificate and not the U certificate which they would have liked, as that would have enabled them to reach out to family audiences. The U/A has been given because they have two sexy sirens, Sherlyn Chopra and Rakhi Sawant, doing what they do best — flaunting some serious skin.

Vinayak Azad, Regional Officer Censor Board said, “The film has been given a U/A certificate due to Sherlyn’s onscreen clothes and Rakhi Sawant’s dance number.”

When asked if there are any intimate scenes, he said, “There are no high-voltage intimate scenes and no kissing scenes as such. But it features one intimate scene with Sherlyn and the other problem is Rakhi’s clothes in the dance number.”

Incidentally, both Rakhi and Sherlyn have painted the town red speaking about their roles in the YRF banner film, which stars Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukerji in lead roles.

Sherlyn says, “Well, Manish Malhotra is to be blamed for that… He’s dressed me in bikini tops and shorts which ooze effortless sensuality. And that’s exactly what’s expected of the super model that I play in the film.”
