Bollywood celebrities’ New Year resolutions
So, the New Year is here and soon we will be bombarded with statements from stars who will make promises and resolutions deluding themselves into believing that they will finally be able to – do quality work only, lose significant amount of weight, quit drinking or smoking, or become better human beings, among other things. Most of them never hold up to their end of the bargain. This does not mean, however, that we cannot pull them up for that. That being said, here are some resolutions that were made by stars for the year 2012, but by the year ending, they remained well, only statements…
Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan has been making a resolution to quit smoking since 2010. He said the same for 2011 and then again in 2012. While he did take a resolve this year too, saying, “I know this is a bad thing but the habit doesn’t leave me. I am trying hard. Even if someone says it to me or not, I know about the ill-effects of smoking. I will try it and give it up on my own. I know it is not a good thing.” Last heard – he is still trying to quit. This time more earnestly, because his children don’t approve of his smoking habit, especially his daughter Suhana.
Bips said she wants to become a harmless liar because sometimes lies help in getting out of sticky situations. “In 2011, I took a resolution that I am going to learn (the art) of lying a bit as it sometimes helps. I am a pathetic liar. In 2011, I failed badly. So in 2012, I think, I will try and perfect a bit. I will try to learn to say harmless lies. I want to be a harmless liar and sometimes I’ll lie to get out of sticky situation media puts you into,” she had said. Did it work? Only Bipasha would know!
“2011 has been a great teacher 4 me and now I’m ready 2 take 2012 by storm ,” said Preity Zinta. Though she did everything she could in an attempt to take 2012 by storm – from producing a film and acting in it (Ishkq In Paris) to even roping in French actress Isabelle Adjani for that added effect – but none of it could make the year 2012 happening for Ms Zinta as the film is lying in the dumps after its release date got postponed indefinitely.
“I just strive to do better not every year but every day. The gift that I want this New Year? Some luck from anyone who cares enough,” said the model-turned-actor. While Pooja Bhatt did try to rub some luck on Dino, by roping him in as a producer on the much-hyped Sunny Leone debut movie Jism 2, but even the Bhatt factor failed this time around with the movie doing just average business.
Mika, who sang several hit Bollywood songs in 2011, made a resolution to sing for Amitabh Bachchan in the year 2012 and get married. While the singer realised his dream of singing for Big B in the film Department (the Kammo song), his marriage plans just went woosh in the air. “I want to meet my life partner. Ab toh shaadi karni hi hai. I’m looking for my perfect match, someone with whom I share a great comfort level and understanding. Getting married is on my agenda,” the singer was quoted as saying. Guess it was a little difficult to find someone with whom he ‘had a great comfort level’.
“My New Year resolution is to be more caring towards my family, as the whole Bigg Bossexperience and 26/11 attacks made me value them and realize that one can only trust one’s family. My one gift? A film with Shah Rukh Khan Sir. Hope God is listening,” Payal said, while announcing her resolutions for the year 2012. She obviously didn’t get any movie with ‘Shah Rukh Khan Sir’ – God obviously didn’t listen.
