Taapsee Pannu: Being an actor a torture for skin

Posted on 03 April 2015 by admin

‘Baby’ actress Taapsee Pannu, who has signed up an endorsement deal with skincare brand Everyuth, says the acting profession is a ‘torture’ on one’s skin — but with a mix of right food and liquid intake, she keeps herself glowing.

Asked how she manages to keep her skin glowing, Taapsee told IANS:

“It’s almost like a torture for the skin to be in this profession. I just make sure my skin is well-hydrated, and I drink a lot of water to keep it healthy from the inside. I also avoid as much fried oily food as I can — in summer especially.” Her association with

Everyuth is her first beauty endorsement.

“I have always been extremely careful of the brands and products I am associating my name with, so it’s the first and the only skincare brand I am associated with as of now,” added the 27-year-old, who prefers to endorse brands and products “which people of my age group fancy”.

The debate on fairness creams and their publicity continues to attract attention.

What is your take – should celebrities promote the concept of fairness creams?

“I myself am not really inclined towards fairness products. To get a glow is a different thing, which the product

I endorse does, but fairness is not proportional to being beautiful,” she said.

Talking about the importance of endorsements in an actor’s career, she said: “It is important.

Because the commercials run on TV much more than what our movies or interviews do. So, it’s important for our visibility that we take up endorsements. “Also it helps knowing and building our target audience according to what products we endorse.”

Does Sunny need to revamp her sex symbol image?

Posted on 25 March 2015 by admin

The sultry beauty seems to be getting typecast by the filmmakers as well as the audience, its high time the audience gets to see the different facet of her talent and personality!

Apparently the ex-porn star grabbed all the eyeballs when she entered India’s biggest reality show, Bigg Boss Season 5. The actress did capture many hearts and had her own mass following.

Though she did not win the show but she somehow managed to enter Tinsel Town.

Keeping her previous career in mind the filmmakers always expected Sunny Leone to add her hot vibe to their film. She has been considered as a sex symbol and the audience also expect a pinch of salacious flavour to the film she is in.

Sunny Leone made her debut with Jism 2, where the film was filled with her sultry bikini and erotic moves, considering her other films,

Shootout at Wadala, Raagini MMS 2 and Jackpot we could see the filmmakers trying to mint money on Sunny’s bold avataars and present her as a sex symbol.

But, in her recent film, Leela Ek Paheli, in the trailer, to our surprise, we can see the actress has done a bit of an acting and we hope this film does proves out to be an image changer for the damsel.

As it’s high time, we would definitely want to see her acting talent and would not want her to be used as a mere doll to draw the crowd to the theaters.
