Katrina Kaif was diagnosed with ‘chocolate cyst of ovary’ for which she underwent an hour-long surgery

By Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 18, 2009)


Katrina Kaif has not been keeping well for almost a month. Few days ago, the actress was admitted to the hospital due to low haemoglobin count. After several tests, the doctors attending on her identified the cause of her persisting illness as endometrioma, for which she was operated.
Katrina was admitted to a South Mumbai hospital and was operated on Wednesday morning. A source reveals, “Katrina had an operation on Wednesday morning and the surgery went on for an hour. It is a one-time surgery and there are no after-effects. She is fine now and has been advised rest for two days. She will be discharged today evening and can return to work after that.”

About Endometrioma

Endometrioma is caused by endometriosis, and is formed when a tiny patch of endometrial tissue (the mucous membrane that makes up the inner layer of the uterine wall) bleeds, sloughs off, becomes transplanted, and grows and enlarges inside the ovaries.

GAME FOR IT: John Abraham
John Abraham joins the Indian cricket team to play opposite South Africa in his sporty film

SUBHASH K JHA Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; December 2, 2009)

John Abrahan’s ankle’s more or less healed now and his doctor’s told him to go ahead and play for David Dhawan’s Hook Ya Crook. So Dhawan has decided to rope in the Indian and the South African cricket teams to play against one another for the grand climax of the sporty film.

A source from the production house said, “We will shoot as soon as we get the dates of certain members of the Indian team.” John, of course, will be part of the Indian team. “I’ve always been a sporty guy. I love all kinds of athletic activity. I’ve always loved football and now cricket. But my favourite sport is the Motorcycle Grand Prix. Some day I hope to do an entire film based on mo’bike racing,” said the actor.

At the moment, the only work he has on hand is the cricket match. “Abbas Tyrewala’s film 1-800-Love is over and after we shoot the climax of Hook Ya Crook, my slate is going to be clean except for a film with Nishikant Kamath,” he said.

ON A POSITIVE NOTE: Aashish Chowdhary
Aashish Chowdhary, who lost his sister and brother-in-law in the terror attack in Mumbai last year writes

I feel humbled by all the strength my friends and this fraternity gives me. Also, I do realise how I must let go of all that, that is buried inside me. I also am aware that there are plenty of others who have gone through a lot too. But, I am in the hope that all of you will understand me when I tell u that it is not the right moment for me to come out and say absolutely anything regarding the issue.


My sister’s kids are living with and being taken care of by their paternal grandparents. I haven’t spoken about it much because I feel that my family needs to be left alone. I have been misquoted on this sensitive issue recently, and I wish people would stop doing that.

I just want to request one and all to help each other for a start. Whether it’s the government, the doctors, teachers, the common public, whoever. We all need to help each other. Have love, respect for each other. There are so many incidents like these with really poor people too. We can start with some charity if nothing else. The revenue of all the events and programmes that are held on the pretext of the anniversary of 26/11, for example, should be given to charity. Lots more can, and should be done.

And finding the problem and curing it is not the end all. We’ve got to cure it from the root. It is not only people like Kasab. He is a victim himself. A victim of wrong preaching, false teaching. Kids are being brainwashed from a really young age to commit felony in the name of religion. It’s sad. But it’s true. My dearest friends are Muslims and they have a totally different meaning of Jihad. I do not think it’s the religion. The Islamic religion is beautiful in my eyes. It’s the select few, who are on an entirely different zone. All of Pakistan is not as its being perceived. It’s just that the cockroaches in that home have to be removed. All homes have some pests or the other. Crimes are committed in India, too, my friends.

I know I’m saying so much despite of starting by saying I don’t want to. But, what I’ve said is what I think all should know. We are all humans. We should love each other. Hate is a big, bad emotion. It’s got to be eradicated. Religion is not the be all and end all. I say all the internal religious problems in our enchanting, multi-faceted India too should be thrown in the back seat. We have to unite. It’s the need of the hour. For me — as a fellow human to all — I’m a human being first, then an Indian, and then… full stop!

John Abraham’s injured ankle threatens cricket climax for David Dhawan film

SUBHASH K JHA Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; September 12, 2009)

Poor John Abraham. The Bollywood hunk, who has been bedevilled by injuries often, has now been declared hors de combat following an ankle injury he suffered a couple of months ago. The actor, who’s busy in London doing 1:800 Love for Abbas Tyrewala, recalled he was last laid low by a virus that hospitalised him during the shooting of Kabul Express in Afghanistan. But this time, the threat is more serious.

The ankle he fractured is refusing to heal. And not only have all potential action films featuring
John been put on hold, but the climax of David Dhawan’s Hook Ya Crook is awaiting completion as well. Doctors have prescribed months of rest for him. “For an athletic, outdoors guy like me, this is like death,” groaned John from London.

“Outwardly it qualifies as just a broken ankle. But actually breaking that bone is a very serious matter,” revealed John. If he continues putting pressure on the leg instead of resting it, as he’s doing now, John may well end up with a limp for life!

Incidentally, the climatic scene in Hook Ya Crook — in which film John plays a cricketer — requires the actor to undergo a rigorous cricket camp with Team India greats like Yuvraj Singh, M S Dhoni and Harbhajan
Singh. “I can hit a sixer. But to look convincing, I’ve to play like a professional. For that I need to train. Then I also need to run very fast. My ankle just won’t be able to take the strain. I’m hoping it will be better by November,” said John ruefully.

He’s fortunate Abbas’s film doesn’t require much physical application. “It’s mostly about emotions,” sighed John, who returns to Mumbai to resume shooting for 1:800 Love next week. “We’re all in that mellow, romantic mood and would rather complete Abbas’s film in one stretch when I’m not physically up to doing anything else,” added John. After two months in London, he is itching to get back. “Has Mumbai missed me,” he asked.

Priyanka Chopra’s overworking herself to a point of no return

MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; August 26, 2009)

There are czarinas and actresses. And then, there is Priyanka Chopra, a perfect blend of both. PC, who has been inundated with compliments for her performance in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Kaminey, is completely overwhelmed with bouquets. However, somewhere deep down, she is also a little worried. The good news is that she is on a hat-trick. For Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion she walked away with every award in the book, for Karan Johar’s Dostana she got compliments galore, and now for Kaminey — the praise is still pouring in. “I’m over-awed, I can’t tell you how great it feels,’’ says the natural-born actress. She says she worked really hard for the part of the feisty, uninhibited middle-class Maharashtrian girl, Sweety in Kaminey. “While the hard work paid dividends it also took from me a lot of blood sweat tears and more,’’ she sighs. She is glad that she walked the path less travelled in her movies — Fashion was women-centric; Dostana was a light-hearted mainstream take on homosexuality; Kaminey got critical acclaim for being refreshingly different. “In other words, the cinema I have done in recent times has been liberating, it has broken barriers.’’

And, while she is killing herself over reactions to her next film What’s Your Rashee? — where she essays 12 diversely unique parts, she is seriously worried about the impact of it all on her health.

“I have said this earlier,’’ says the actress, “it’s the same OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) at work. I’ve been warned by my parents (both doctors) and well-wishers not to let work take its toll on me. And, though I wish to pay heed to their advice, I can’t stop myself from getting excessively involved with the work I take on. Honestly, I drive myself to a point of no return when it comes to any part that I undertake in a film. I’m just so involved that it starts to hurt. And I don’t realise I’m bleeding till such time as I’m on a set because I don’t stop to look.’’

The actress has forcibly been ordered a hiatus from the studios by her parents. And, when she returns, she hopes to once again start promoting her WYR? and Pyaar Impossible with gusto.

With some girls — there is absolutely no such thing as a ‘take-it-easy-policy.’ Hai na, PC?
