Mouth Shut! When Bollywooders said some not-so-witty statements

MUMBAI: We list some of the most bewildering statements made by Bollywood stars

Stardom comes with its own trials and tribulations. Not only does one need to have the talent, but one also needs to handle fame well.

While promoting his latest film Raja Natwarlal – it has him team up with actress Humaima Malick – Emraan Hashmi told an entertainment daily that it is a ‘family film with kissing scenes’.

Then there’s the whole promotional rigmarole that a star has to go through every time a film is up for release. And yes, not everyone is equally witty. At a time when celebs are asked more about their personal lives than their work, the art of speaking well does come in handy. Nothing reiterates this more than some recent statements that a few Bollywood stars have made. Be it big or small – several actors and actresses have made remarks that made us wonder, ‘What got into them?’

Whether they said these things merely to catch us off guard, to grab headlines or because they were unsure themselves is anybody’s guess. hitlist brings you some of these ‘huh-huh’ statements made by tinsel town’s leading names…

Quote unquote: `I don’t give physical relationships that much importance. I’ll be okay if my man has sex with someone else. It won’t make me insecure. But yes, if he’s in love with another woman, I will have to let him go.`

Our take: Given her past, Kangna clearly knows a thing or two about complicated relationships. But that’s no reason to let it seep into her present. A rethinking of what she said is in order, we’d say.

Quote unquote: `A friend of Deepika had called up to say that she is doing Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani and not Anushka. My ‘friends’ don’t call, do they? I am Kashyap’s and Hirani’s choice. She is Ayan’s and whosoever’s. I never pull anybody down. That makes me nice, right?`

Our take: Okay, Anushka. Point noted. But please practice what you preach and instead of saying what makes you nicer than others.
