Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif may not have much in common except super success. But both are prone to suffer from exhaustion due to over-work. And both actresses have been advised to take it easy by doctors. Unfortunately for them, their schedules are not listening to their physiology. Last year Priyanka had a series of exhaustion-related health problems including a scary blackout during the shooting of What’s Your Raashee? that resulted in hospitalisation. Having resolved to take it easy in 2010, Priyanka has gone back to her impossible schedules. After a gruelling schedule in Kashmir for Vishal Bharadwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf, the actress had to rush to Mumbai for an added seven-day schedule of Sajid Nadiadwala’s Anjaana Anjaani involving Ranbir Kapoor. This stint comes out of the blue and involves hospital scenes that couldn’t be shot in the US because of lack of permission to shoot in restricted public areas. From here it’s back to Vishal’s outdoor for Priyanka, in Coorg this time. Priyanka admitted, “It’s been hectic. I must say Saat Khoon Maaf is a very exhausting film. I guess every film I do is gruelling in its own way. Otherwise I wouldn’t be doing it.”
“Mujhe mukti de de”…that’s what hrithik roshan was saying loudly from the balcony of his juhu flat at 2 am. And no, he hadn’t had a fight with his wife. so involved is he with Guzaarish, that he stays up nights rehearsing the dialogue. is his obsession telling on his health?By Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 09, 2010) Hrithik Roshan pic: yogen sha
Hrithik Roshan’s life is consumed not just by love, but also by sheer dedication to his role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish. Don’t be surprised if you find him spending sleepless nights, rehearsing his dialogue to himself with emphasis on details.
Hrithik is known for his diligent approach to his roles, but the big question here is: is his obsession with a great performance taking a toll on him?
Last night at 2 am, Hrithik was spotted by this reporter in the balcony of his apartment, pacing frenetically and reading out his dialogue. Despite Hrithik being on the 8th floor of his Juhu residence (Palazzio), he could still be heard loud and clear on the street.
Perhaps burning the midnight oil is the reason for the deep lines that mark his weariness. His face reflects the exhaustion, and it’s hardly surprising. As it is, his personal life is tumultuous, his party hard ways are causing concern and now he is pushing himself to the limit as far as his role goes.
Apparently, he had just reached home and within five minutes, he was slaving over the dialogue. They sounded rather dramatic, as a Bhansali More >

Ken Ghosh admits he had loud arguments with Shahid Kapoor on the sets during the shooting of Chance Pe Dance.
But it had to do with Shahid’s suddenly-saturated schedules.
Says Ken, “For the first time in his career Shahid was doing three films at the same time-Kaminey, Dil Bole Hadippa and my film Chance Pe Dance. Naturally there was a conflict of interest.”
Ken admits there were loud arguments over Shahid’s schedules. “I’d ask for three days. He would have only one day to spare. I’d naturally be upset. Then understandably, Shahid wanted time off. He couldn’t be seen on my set straight after shooting for one of the other two films. This naturally led to heated arguments. For me as a director it was okay to come on the sets without sleep. But Shahid had to catch up on his resting time. Or the dark circles would have shown on camera. And since Shahid is fair-complexioned those dark circles would be even more visible.”
The last thing that Ken wanted was for his hero to fall ill. “Priyanka Chopra had to be hospitalized because of overwork and exhaustion. I didn’t want Shahid to go through the same experience.”
The effort has been worth it for both Shahid and Ken. “Shahid’s dancing in Chance Pe Dance is the film’s mainstay. But his performance is not just about dancing. Some of the things he has done with in the dramatic scenes took me by surprise. Shahid has brought subtle expressions into scenes which I didn’t catch while More >

Priyanka Chopra, without concern for her health, interrupted her well-deserved vacation and flew to Mumbai only for a day to dub for What’s Your Rashee?By Vickey Lalwani (MIMBAI MIRROR; August 28, 2009) Priyanka Chopra is evidently committed to her projects, as she takes a break from a break to dub for What’s Your Rashee? Either she is a workaholic or health is currently not high on her list of priorities. After suffering a long period of ill health coupled with exhaustion, which needed hospitalisation for a few days, Priyanka has returned from her holiday to Mumbai only for a day to fulfill a work commitment.
Priyanka had left for an unknown foreign destination last Wednesday, but she interrupted her holiday and flew into the city early on Thursday morning. After a brief rest, she headed to the studios to dub for Ashutosh Gowariker’s What’s Your Rashee? She plans to take off for the second leg of her vacation after a day of dubbing.
A source says, “The dubbing of What’s Your Rashee? was so important that Priyanka just could not refuse. While a few of her friends who were with her on the holiday told her to take it easy, Priyanka still chose to make a hectic dash.”
Last evening, Priyanka’s father confirmed the news, “Yes, Priyanka has come back. She had to dub for What’s Your Rashee?”
When asked if Priyanka was facing a burn out and concentrating too much on work, Dr Chopra said, “Priyanka is absolutely fine. Work is fun. Aur kaam bhi to important hai. More >
Priyanka walking out of a hospital after an earlier illness. Note her waif-like frame
Priyanka Chopra had a health scare on Thursday night when she had a dizzy spell and a brief blackout minutes after addressing the media at an event to promote Kaminey at a suburban theatre. This is the fourth time in the last few months that the actress has suffered from indifferent health sparking concern among family and friends about her pushing her body beyond endurance.
“She has been running high temperature for the last several days but refuses to slow down her crazy schedule. She came for Thursday’s event propped up by antibiotics but exhaustion took a toll. She stood tall at the media briefing only on sheer will power,” said an eye witness, “but immediately afterwards, she went out of the exit corridor and collapsed. Everybody around was most concerned.”
She has fallen ill during every film that she has worked on be it Dostana, more recently What’s Your Rashee? when Ashutosh Gowariker cancelled shooting and last week on the sets of Pyaar Impossible with Uday Chopra when she was down with viral fever. “Down with the flu or viral or some such thing that is making me miserable. Ugh! I hate being sick! Had to cancel More >
