Parineeti wants to shed her ‘bubbly’ image From Srabanti Chakrabarti

Actress Parineeti Chopra, known for her carefree attitude, says she dislikes being called ‘bubbly’ as she feels the term does not suit her personality. The 25-year-old actress, who has starred in films like ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’, Ishaqzaade, Shuddh Desi Romance and Hasee Toh Phasee, is awaiting the release of her fifth release Dawat-E-Ishq. “I know I am lively and I always smile when I talk but a name like bubbly doesn’t suit my personality. You can talk about a cold drink or a champagne when you say bubbly, but not me! So, I am requesting everybody to not call me by that name. You can call me as an expressive person,” Parineeti said. ‘Dawat-E-Ishq’ directed by Habib Faisal also stars Aditya Roy Kapoor and Anupam Kher, and will hit theatres on September 19. Parineeti said that she is yet to watch her cousin sister and fellow actress Priyanka Chopra’s latest release ‘Mary Kom’, which is a biopic based on the Olympian boxer from Manipur. “I am sorry I couldn’t find time to watch it. Due to the promotional activities I am reaching home late everyday,” she said. (PTI)

Keira Knightley rocks 101 Dalmatians’ look

Actress Keira Knightley flaunted the “101 Dalmatian” style at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival. The actress arrived to the event’s press conference for “The Imitation Game”, in a dalmatian-like lace dress with large black polka dots all over it, reports a website. But while Knightley seemed inspired by one Disney film, it looks like she won’t be returning to another, after she confirmed that “the ship has sailed” for her to join “Pirates Of The Caribbean 5”. The actress’s revelation comes soon after actor Orlando Bloom, who played love interest Will Turner to her Elizabeth Swann in the trilogy, admitted he may join Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush in the fifth movie.

Justin Bieber ‘seeing a therapist’

Singer Justin Bieber is reportedly spending 600 pounds-an-hour for taking help from a therapist. The 20-year-old is allegedly seeing John Kenyon, to help control his impulsive behaviour following multiple run ins with the law, which left him facing charges of assault and drag racing, earlier this year, reports a website. “Kenyon’s treating Justin in person, when possible, then over Skype when he’s away. Sometimes they even have more than one session a day,” said a source. “Kenyon’s so booked up he doesn’t normally take on new clients but Justin used his name to skip the three-year waiting list.  “It’s too soon to tell if it’s having a positive effect, but the fact that Justin has kept it up and passed the first batch of sessions speaks volumes. If he hates something he’s not normally the kind of person to stick it out,” added the source. It is said that Bieber was encouraged to participate in the sessions by his mother Pattie Mallette, who has become increasingly worried that his erratic behaviour will be damaging to his career.
