The new Filmfare cover touting the Bollywood class of 2011
Okay, Prateik Babbar, sure. He's a legitimate new star with well received performances in Dhobi Ghat and Dum Maro Dum and he looks fine.
But Shraddha Kapoor?! Give me a break! Bollywood nepotism at work yet again. First of all she debuted in mega-flop Teen Patti in 2010 and second of all her film this year, Love Ka The End, got a big NO THANK YOU from audiences and critics.
Why not pick Pooja Gandhi, who had one of the year's few hits so far in F.A.L.T.U.? Or one of the many television actresses who are set to cross over in smallish films?
Plus, Shraddha Kapoor looks like a bobble-head! Look at those twig arms - please tell me this is photoshopped because I'm getting flashbacks to Nicole Ritchie and the hordes of big-haired, big-headed, skeletal girls who took over Hollywood a few years ago.
Losing weight does not count as a 'talent.'
Lord help me, if this kind of thing continues, I'm really decamping completely for South Indian films. Even the worst actresses down South at least don't look like famine victims.
Note from Filmi Girl:
I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.
If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
