Sonakshi Sinha loves her nose ring

New Delhi, June 22 (IANS) Actress Sonakshi Sinha is one of the few actresses who wears a nose accessory even on screen. She says it is convenient to wear and gives her the 'desi' look.

Sonakshi had her nose pierced when she was 16.

"I have worn a nose ornament right from my first film ('Dabangg') and I keep altering from a nose ring to a stud," Sonakshi, who is known for sporting various Indian avatars in her films, said in a statement.

The 26-year-old will flaunt a nose ring once again in her forthcoming film "Lootera". The actress will wear a traditional nose ring, which also enhances her character in the movie.

"I have used a very traditional Bengali-looking nose stud in the shape of a flower. It's a hassle-free accessory and is also the mark of an Indian woman," she tweeted.

Bipasha uses own fitness DVD for workout

Fit and fabulous Bipasha Basu never gives her workout session a miss. So, when she was in Ooty shooting for 3D film "Creature" and didn't find the gym facilities satisfactory, her own DVDs came in handy.

"In Ooty, the gym is not that great, so the workout DVDs are helping us all! Waiting to launch 'Unleash' next," tweeted the 34-year-old, who has flaunted her perfect curves in movies like "Jism", "Dhoom 2" and "Players".

Shreya Ghoshal, Vishal Dadlani get emotional

Rough and tough Vishal Dadlani and melodious beauty Shreya Ghoshal ended up in tears when they had to select one between a brother and a sister for singing reality show "Indian Idol Junior".

Vishal and Shreya judge the Sony Entertainment Television show along with Shekhar Ravjiani. It became the strenuous task for them to select the top 10 young singers of the nation, said a statement.

There was a point when Shreya and Vishal had to choose one between a set of siblings. They couldn't control their emotions and eventually shed few tears, said a source.

Shreya says eliminating kids is the toughest part about being on the show.

"I just do not like this part of show when we need to say no to the contestants and specially to those cute and little ones. It really feels sad," said Shreya.
