Akshay Invite Poonam Pandey, Cheer Queens and Supermodels
Despite receiving threatening calls and recovering from kidney stone removal surgery, the model intends to keep her word.
As if to make up for her hardships, Akshaye Kumar has offered her a chance to appear on his dare-devil television show for ladies"Khatron Ke Khiladi".
Rumours abound that she has also been offered a part in "Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla" on Star Plus. If it is true, it will suit her to a T.
Her "promise" has handed her quite a bit of free publicity, inspired a hundred hacks and spawned a thousand internet jokes.
Now, it's brought her some prime time as well.
"Dare to bare" has its rewards.
In the IPL, the Cheer Queens of Pune Warriors found few admirers. An elaborate 'pranam' following a boundary, a maximum or a wicket was surely cause for mirth.
Subrata Roy watched his team win their first IPL game seated in the midst of a bevy of models.
If you are speculating as to why a group of models would be assisting the CEO of Pune Warriors, tell me have you ever seen an overweight model?
The latest joke doing the rounds is that super-models have been roped in by IPL team managers to advise perpetually stocky cricketers on the right diet and exercise.
They will also provide secondary motivation. If models can remain trim, slim and fit, why can't the players?
Very soon, we can expect Shah Rukh Khan to have his Kolkatta Knight Riders sporting six-packs
