Ranbir Kapoor Brand Ambassador for Panasonic!!

6 04 2009

Ranbir Kapoor is flying high these day’s with shoots, movies, and ads. I knew this guy has a lot of potential and will surely make it big in Bollywood. He’s the son of Rishi and Neetu for gods sake! What do you expect??

He is the young star face of Pepsi and now Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has become the brand ambassador for consumer goods giant Panasonic India as well.

The 26-year-old actor, who made his debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya in 2007, was officially tasked to promote Panasonic’s VIERA LCDs and Plasmas as well as television and home theatre brands across India at an event held at the Ashok Hotel here.

“Like every movie I choose to be a part of, I have chosen to endorse this brand after careful thought. I can only hold up those products that I am fully convinced about. I feel truly honoured to be its brand ambassador,” said Ranbir, who looked charming in a formal black suit.

“I have childhood memories of this brand since my father (actor Rishi Kapoor) had bought his first speakers from this company and he used to be very possessive about them. Even now, the telephones and televisions that I have at home are of the same brand,” he added.

Asked whether he would go out of his way to promote the products of the brand through his movies, Ranbir quipped: “Yes! If a film has a certain scene where a TV set is required, I will definitely ask the filmmaker to use Panasonic.”

According to Manish Sharma, head of marketing at Panasonic India Pvt Ltd (consumer electronics and home appliances), the company zeroed in on Ranbir because “he matched the brand personality”.

“We conducted a research and wanted our brand ambassador to meet five dimensions – he should be an established personality, should be able to create excitement, should have a competent personality, should be a premium brand himself and should be seasoned. For us, Ranbir’s cool and trendy image was a perfect match,” said Sharma.

As the brand ambassador, Ranbir would be involved in “communicating the brand values of the company through multi-media campaigns”, the company official said.

A special commercial featuring the Bachna Ae Haseeno star will be aired on television starting this month.

No Rules for SRK: Sonam Kapoor

30 03 2009

Sonam Kapoor may be just two films old, but she is choosy about her roles and has drafted strict guidelines for herself to sign movies.

The young actress is, however, willing to make exceptions if the man opposite her happens to be Robert De Niro or Shah Rukh Khan.

“Well, why would one actually ask questions if paired opposite Robert De Niro?” asks Sonam with a mischievous smile. “You should consider yourself plain fortunate to just share a common frame with him. In fact, I will be happy to even walk past a frame featuring him. No questions asked. Period.”

Sonam teamed up with Ranbir Kapoor in her debut vehicle “Saawariya” and she was seen with Abhishek Bachchan in her second film “Dilli 6”. She is now looking forward to a movie with superstar Shah Rukh.

“He is another man for whom I will be so very willing to ignore my rule book. I would be more than happy to go ahead and sign a film if Shah Rukh happens to be my hero,” says Sonam, a self-confessed Shah Rukh fan.

“There are exceptions that one makes about the size and content of the role when it comes to working with legendary actors; De Niro and Shah Rukh just fit the bill,” she said.

However, when it comes to working on films with anyone lesser, Sonam certainly has her do’s and don’ts in place.

“I don’t intend to do films where all I am required to do is to dance in four songs and enact a couple of emotional scenes. By no means am I looking at that kind of cinema,” she said.

Though the formal announcement of her next film is yet to take place, reports are that Sonam’s next will be for her dad’s production house. The film is called “Ayesha” and is based on Jane Austen’s novel “Emma”.

According to industry sources, Sonam will be making a complete about turn from her “Saawariya” and “Delhi 6” image and take on a completely new ultra-chic avtar. The film will feature Abhay Deol along with newcomer Arunodoy Singh, who will soon make his debut with “Sikandar”.

Sonam and Imran Khan are meanwhile reportedly being considered by Kunal Kohli for his next film that would be directed by his assistant Danish Aslam. However, confirmation is still awaited around this young love story.

Ranbir showed his bum in “Saawariya” , so why the fuss about John?:Bips

23 01 2009

Bipasha Basu being a good girlfriend that she is stands up for her beau John and demand for the answer if Ranbir then why not John!!

Spicezee Bureau

Mumbai, Jan 16: John Abraham  is sexy and there are no two ways about it. And, after Bipasha Basu enlightened us all on this obvious fact, the bongshell is now defending her lucky boys dare-to-bare ‘butt act’ in ‘Dostana’.

After boasting about her beau’s hip toned physique earlier, the dusky babe has now slammed reports that her lover-boy exposed more than what was needed in ‘Dostana’.

Coming to John’s rescue, Bipasha jumped the gun on Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Saawariya’ act calling it far more revealing that John’s ‘Dostana’ escapade.

Speaking to a news daily, Bipasha said, “Ranbir Kapoor showed his bum in `Saawariya`. How come no one raised any eyebrows? It was not so drastic with John”.

What’s more is that the sassy babe feels that John’s hot-bod is just not drawing it’s worthy appreciation. “He has a fantastic body. If a woman on a beach is appreciated, why not a man on the beach? If you are comfortable with your body and you can carry it off with grace like John did, why not? I`m proud of what John has achieved. I`ve been with him from the time we shot `Aetbaar` and `Jism`. We started dating while shooting for `Aetbaar`,” said Bips.

Well, we would happily oblige Bipasha’s demands, for we just love to feast our eyes on John’s hot-bod!
