Girls vs Boys- Bollywood

I thought it would be good to do a Bollywood Girls vs Boys, so today it's Katrina Kaif vs Akshay Kumar.

Katrina and Akshay have been in several films together, including Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006), Namastey London (2007) and Singh Is Kinng (2008).

Katrina started acting in 2003. She is half Indian and half English (her dad is a Kashmiri from the UK and her mum is English) and was born in Hong Kong. She lived in various places while growing up, including Asia, Europe and Hawaii. Her birth name is Katrina Turquotte/Turcotte but she took on her father's surname after she started acting because she thought it would be easier to pronounce.

Katrina started out as a model and went into acting after being cast in Bollywood film Boom (2003). She moved to India and went on to star in many films, including Welcome, Race and Dhoom: 3. She has also acted in the South Indians film industries Tollywood and Malayalam.When Katrina first started out she couldn't speak Hindi very well but she took lessons and is now one of the most popular actresses in Bollywood. Her latest film is Bang Bang , set to be released in October and she is currently filming Phantom.

Here is Katrina in the video for Sheila Ki Jawani from Tees Maar Khan (2010). Sheila Ki Jawani is sung by playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan, who also sang Dhoom Machale. Akshay is in this as well, although it's mainly Katrina's song and his part is sung by Vishal Dadlani.

Akshay (real name Rajiv Harry Om-Bhatia) is a very successful Bollywood actor with a long career. He also started out as a model before becoming an actor. Before modelling Akshay studied martial arts and had a small role as a karate instructor in Aaj (1987) but his first proper film was Saugandh in 1991. Some of his most successful films have been the Khiladi series (an Indian version of James Bond).

Akshay is known for his action films ( due to his martial arts background he performs his own stunts) and also has a talent for comedy, having starred in Hera Pheri (2000), the sequel Phir Hera Pheri (2006) and Housefull (2010). In addition he has played romantic leads. His other film credits include Ajnabee (2001), Bewafa (2005), Garam Masala (2005), Tees Mar Khan and Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara! (2013). Akshay's latest release is Entertainment (2014) and he's currently filming several movies.

This is Akshay in Chakna Chakna from Namastey London. The playback singer is Himesh Reshammiya.

Also here are Akshay and Katrina again in Jee Karda from Singh Is Kingg, because I like the song!

Who do you prefer? Or do you like them both? :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
