It's known to everyone that when you have perfectionist Aamir Khan, the film will majorly ride on the ace actor's shoulder. The film will run in Aamir's name, despite the presence of topnotch actresses and of course the credit will be largely enjoyed by him.
Knowing this fact, Katrina Kaif, who stars alongside Aamir Khan in upcoming film DHOOM 3 and plays the only leading of the film, got witty with the star at a recent event. When the question of credit was raised, Katrina jumped in and said, '' Firstly, I would like to propose a change if God willing and Inshallah DHOOM 3 is a huge hit, Aamir can dedicate a letter to me thanking for my contribution in the film. Aamir can say 'I give you credit for the film'.'' On this Aamir too jested, ''I don't have to wait for a hit for that.''
However, later on a serious note Aamir adds in his style, ''When you say a hero takes the credit away, it doesn't mean he takes the credit and runs away. What happens...

Says the 26-year-old actress, "I'm not attached to stardom. I'm not attached to the perks that come along with it. I'm very clear in my head that this is what I love doing and enjoy and that's the only reason I'm doing it."
The actress who has starred in HIMMATWALA, LOOTERA and ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI DOBAARA this year will also be seen in BULLETT RAJA and R...RAJKUMAR which are scheduled to release back-to-back. Despite the number of films she's doing, Sonakshi doesn't feel the need to slow down.
"I don't think I need to slow down. I enjoy my work. I love my work. I love waking up every morning and going on set, shooting or promoting a film. The minute I feel like slowing down or not enjoying what I'm doing, I'll leave. I don't have that attachment to something make-belief," revealed the actress.

Sajidkhan has reportedly been dropped from the Housefull sequel for calling Akshay Kumar a "flop".
The Himmatwala filmmaker directed the star in the first two films in the popular comedy franchise.
A source told the Mumbai Mirror: "It was a big showdown. The conversation ended with Akshay telling Sajid he didn't want to interact with him anymore.
"Akshay is very angry and has told his buddies about it. Even filmmakers like Karan Johar, Rajkumar Hirani and Farhan Akhtar don't pass such remarks. Like every other actor, Akshay has had his share of highs and lows. More significantly, he is on a firm footing right now."
According to the paper, Khan was dropped from the film by Housefull producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
In December, Kumar became the first actor that year to have made an estimated 400 crore in the box office.
Director Shirish Kunder was dropped by Nadiadwala for Kick after Joker, starring Kumar, flopped with audiences last...

you will be happy to know that Katrina Kaif is considering being a part of the Seeta aur Geeta remake. In fact she is such a big fan of the film that she has wanted to produce a remake herself, so she was quite interested when she was offered the project. The production team is ecstatic that Kat is so interested so they are giving her complete freedom in choosing the team that she wants!
Rumour has it that Ramesh Sippy, who has also directed the original, will direct the remake too. But this rumour has been denied by his son Rohan Sippy. Apparently there is a tussle between the Sippy brothers about the film's rights, so nobody can make any claims till this issue is settled between the brothers. But it is largely expected that the film will be ready by 2014. Now that's something to look forward...
