After the promo of Salman Khan’s next film Ek Tha Tiger opposite Katrina Kaif released at the theatres, it made a lot of people sit back and notice. In fact, soon after, director Kabir Khan tweeted, “You Tube view meter jammed within 3 mins of launch, YRF server in danger of crashing, trending 15 mins after launch… That’s Tiger for you ”
Now buzz is that in the sequence, where Salman is shown doing what he does best — a series of stunt acts, in fact it is someone else in his shoes. With the help of special effects being done at a Mumbai-based studio, Salman’s body double’s face will be replaced with that of the star.
Our sources reveal that Salman’s body double is none other than Jawed El Berni, a French national, who in the past too has performed the star’s stunts. Jawed has been practicing martial art for the last 20 years and parkour for three.
He also served as Akshay Kumar’s body double in Housefull 2. And that’s not all, even Katrina has a body double in the film, a girl called Rochelle Okoye, who has been a part of films like Twilight and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

We’ve seen the TV actress Priya Wal in several soaps like C.I.D., Yes Boss, Sun Yaar Chill Maar, Aek Chabhi Hai Paddos Mein, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and many more, but she agrees she’s got everyone sitting up and taking notice of her for essaying the role of Anvesha in her first show- Remix. She’s extremely excited to be a part of Ekta Kapoor’s Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani on Star One as her fans wanted to see her again in the tomboy avatar!
You played a role of a tomboy in the show Remix, which is similar to your current character – Misha – in the show Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani. Weren’t you scared of being typecast?
No, not at all. It’s very easy to typecast somebody, but the challenge is to take it up and do something different with it. There’s a lot more to every character than just playing a tomboy. Luckily, I don’t have to sport red hair this time!
You agree that your tomboy image goes very well with the audiences?
I was very lucky to be launched with the show Remix. I feel my tomboyish image got stuck in people’s mind. People More >

A decade after Amitabh Bachchan, the first living Asian, was immortalised at Madame Tussauds in London, Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan has got the same honour. In the decade gone by Shah Rukh Khan, India’s most beautiful face Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Hindi cinema’s most endearing actor Salman Khan also made it to this 200-year-old tourist fixation. But Aamir Khan declined the invitation. Now Hrithik will be the fifth Bollywood actor to be cast in wax at the prestigious museum.
The Roshans, who received the official letter from the museum three days ago, are ecstatic. Hrithik is in Spain shooting for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. An excited Rakesh Roshan said, “It is truly an international honour. All of us are very happy.’’ A source said, “The Roshans are delighted because all the other actors who made it to Madame Tussauds, took a longer time to get this honour. ’’
The Madame Tussauds team will be in Mumbai in January to take measurements of the light-eyed actor who has completed 10 years in Bollywood. His waxwork is sure to unsettle that of Twilight star Robert Pattinson… the most kissed model in London’s Madame Tussauds! The vampire movie heartthrob topped the list of waxworks most frequently smooched by amorous fans, beating fellow Brit actor Daniel Radcliffe — aka Harry Potter — in second place.
