After Amitabh Bachchan’s ground breaking transformation to Auro in Paa, its now the turn of daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan to undergo a drastic makeover.

Buzz has it that Aishwarya will be playing an old lady in a few scenes in Vipul Shah’s forthcoming film Action Replay, for which she will have intensive make up sessions with Hollywood make up artists.

Besides Ash, Action Replay also stars Akshay Kumar and Randhir Kapoor. The film is currently under production and is expected to release in April 2010.

Mistaken as a Mexican drug dealer at the Amsterdam airport, Chunky Pandey’s freedom was in the hands of an old lady

Chunky Pandey was recently detained at the Amsterdam airport by the security personnel, who thought that he was a Mexican drug dealer.

Blame all the confusion on Chunky’s new look for Sajid Khan’s Housefull, for which he had grown his hair and beard. His resemblance to drug dealers roused the suspicions of the airport security and Chunky was detained for half an hour.

A source said, “The airport security took Chunky to the interrogation room and were getting ready to thoroughly search him, even as he was desperately trying to convince them that he is an Indian actor. When asked to prove so, Chunky tried to sing a few Hindi songs, but that, well, failed to convince them. Chunky then suggested that he should be taken out of the airport so that any Indians there could recognise him. That was of no help either as no one recognised him because of his moustache. Finally, an old lady took a good look at him and said that Chunky was indeed the actor he claimed to be. Only then was he let off.”

Recalling the experience, Chunky said, “The cops started questioning me in Spanish and I couldn’t understand a word. They looked me up on the Internet and found that I look like an Indian actor. However, my name on the passport is different (it has his real name), so that didn’t help either. Then an old lady recognised me as she had seen my films. As soon as I landed in Mumbai, the first thing I did was go to my barber.”
