Katrina Kaif was missing from the promotional event of Yuvvraaj, and Zarine Khan, who looks like a clone of Kats, was in Salman’s arms all the time. It is also learned that Zarine was a body double of Katrina Kaif in Yuvvraaj, and Salman Khan recommended her to the makers of Veer. Now Zarine will play the main female lead in Salman Khan starrer Veer.
After Aamir Khan’s beefed-up look in Ghajini, here is Salman Khan flaunting his bronze abs. This photo is from his upcoming movie Veer. From the promo photos it looks that Salman Khan plays a warrior from a different era. He can be seen holding a sword and a shield. Veer is directed by Gadar fame Anil Sharma and the story is written by Salman Khan himself.
The problem with Salman Khan is that he is looking old. You can see the bags under his eyes. Nevertheless, his physic is looking absolutely stunning.
Bollywood has a very poor track record of period movies. We have seen some big movies with big stars sink like titanic in the recent past. Yep, I’m talking about SRK starrer Asoka, Aamir starrer Mangal Pandey, and very recently, Abhishek starrer Drona.Let’s hope that Veer proves to be a Veer (warrior) at the box office
Salman Khan is always fascinated by lookalikes of his lost girls…remember Sneha Ullal, who looked like Aishwarya Rai? It is another story that she couldn’t make it big, and can be seen in B-grade movies these days.
Coming back to the event… Salman with Zarine in his arms was asking everyone he met at the event, ‘doesn’t she look like Katrina?’
Salman bhai, what is happening? Once this Zarine gets popular, even she will dump you like Aishwarya…and now Katrina. If you haven’t learnt from the past, then no body can save you. You are no more twenty-something, so ground yourself before it is too late.

Clinton's three day tour of Pakistan, the response to which was
lukewarm at best. Interviews with diplomatic sources in Washington,
D.C. and media coverage of Clinton's visit demonstrate growing
frustration with the Obama administration, which may result in a
reassessment of its Pakistani interlocutor.
Although American officials publicly praise military operation in
South Waziristan, in private they sing a different tune; their
assessment of "alignment" is rather pessimistic. Stories leaked to
media consistently allege that al-Qaeda leadership is still enjoying
safe haven in Pakistan.
American TV networks looped a statement by Secretary Clinton's over
and over, which almost accused Pakistan's government of providing this
protection to al-Qaeda leadership."Al-Qaeda has had safe haven in
Pakistan since 2002….I find it hard to believe that nobody in your
government knows where they are and couldn't get them if they really
wanted to," Mrs. Clinton told a gathering of Pakistani newspaper
editors. This statement reflects the best possible opinion of Pakistan
available in Washington, D.C.; other government sources and media
influencers confidently contend that the Pakistani establishment is
Clinton's statement may have been a justified expression of
frustration with an ally that has not delivered adequate results. But
Pakistanis are equally disappointed with the United States and for the
first time in six decades are demanding accountability.
In a very condescending act of "tough love diplomacy," the White House
backed the Secretary Clinton's blunt statement, questioning Pakistan's
willingness to hunt down al-Qaeda terrorists even as it moves against
other extremist groups in its tribal areas.
When asked if Secretary Clinton's remarks were "appropriate," White
House spokesman Robert Gibbs said today: "Obviously the United States
has great concern about extremists in Pakistan. And we will continue
to — continue to discuss with them what can be done. And those remarks
A section of the American media is commending Secretary Clinton for
taking the gloves off and delivering a no-holds-barred message to
Pakistan that it must step up its efforts to apprehend al-Qaeda
terrorists and demonstrate a real commitment to democracy. Those who
support her directness argue that this gives Pakistan's leaders a
much-needed dose of reality.
Pakistan-U.S. relations have not been this tenuous before, and the
Obama administration is frustrated with the outcome of the Kerry-Lugar
bill. "No one had anticipated such negativity," said an American
official who did not want to be identified. "We thought Pakistanis
[would] celebrate the passage of this bill. This is what we were told
by representatives of Pakistani government."
Pakistani government representatives from President Zardari to Foreign
Minister Qureshi and Ambassador Hussain Haqqani further down the chain
assured Americans that Pakistanis would be jubilant; KLB was suppose
to heal all wounds, rectify all wrongs and erase memories of the past
from the consciousness of the masses.
I remember when President Obama announced the Senate had passed
Kerry-Lugar bill at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in September. Attendees
cheered so loud we could hear the thunderous applause from outside.
Later that same day, Richard Holbrooke told Pakistani journalists at
the Roosevelt Hotel's media center that the House will approve the
bill within a week. A Pakistani anchor who was visiting with President
Zardari screamed "Insha Allah" so loudly it was embarrassing. She
acted like a bagger waiting for alms.
But as we have subsequently learned, Pakistanis are inherently
anti-imperialist and if the Pakistani army can find a leader like
Chavez, everything could change overnight.
The Kerry-Lugar Bill's failure has been the Obama administration's
biggest setback thus far; its development has been very similar to
what happened in Iraq.
In 2003 Americans were expecting roses as they walked victoriously
into Baghdad. They thought the Iraqis would welcome freedom from the
tyrannical rule of Saddam Hussein. Bush's administration did not
anticipate the scale and speed of hostility so soon after the fall of
During her trip, Secretary Clinton repeatedly said the U.S. wants to
partner with Pakistan on more than just the military front, but
qualified that statement by saying the government in Islamabad will
have to be America's partner in tracking down and capturing the
terrorists who masterminded the September 11 attacks, among so many
others throughout the world.
Clinton herself defended the bluntness of her remarks in an interview
Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America," saying, "Trust is a two-way
street. There is trust deficit."
She is absolutely right. Americans will not so easily believe
Zaradari, Qureshi and Haqqani's words in the future.
American analysts are asking President Obama to drop the "democracy"
mantra and work directly with Pakistan's army. Obama is also being
asked to provide economic support and help strengthen Pakistan's civil
institutions simultaneously conveying an inflexible and clear message
that there are no free lunches.
Pakistanis have options too: They can storm, form, norm and perform.
After venting frustration over KLB and drone attacks they must
normalize and start delivering what America wants.
Or they can find a left-leaning leader within Pakistan's army and
bring about peaceful and secular revolution without foreign aid.
The third and easiest option, to maintain the status-quo, letting
Mullahs and extremists take over our lives, is NOT an option.

suicide bomb attack in Pakistan.
Car Blast Near Army HQ In Pakistan Kills 34
9:09am UK, Monday November 02, 2009
Graham Fitzgerald, Sky News Online
At least 34 people have been killed and dozens injured in an apparent
suicide bomb attack in Pakistan.
The blast, in Rawalpindi, happened outside a four-star hotel not far
from the army's main headquarters.
The explosives were planted in a vehicle in a car park.
"We believe that it was a suicide attack and our initial investigation
also endorses this," said a local police official.
Emergency services told Sky News there were 34 people dead and 32 injured.
Rawalpindi is just a few miles away from the capital, Islamabad.
The blast came as the United Nations suspended development work in two
key areas along Pakistan's border with Afghanistan because of security
It follows a wave of attacks in the country which have claimed around 250 lives.
The attacks have apparently been in retaliation for a military
offensive to seize control of Taliban strongholds in South Waziristan.
The UN plans to reduce the level of international workers in Pakistan
and restrict itself to emergency, humanitarian relief and security
In a statement it said it would also carry out "any other essential
operations as advised by the secretary-general".
A UN spokeswoman said the organisation was still deciding which
programmes will be suspended and how many staff will be withdrawn from
Those that remain will be given additional security.
"We have had 11 of our colleagues killed because of the security
situation," said the spokeswoman. "All of the decisions are being made
in light of that."

Today, the Pakistani military initiated the much anticipated cleaning operation in the South Waziristan region, close to the Afghanistan border, in an effort to root out the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and other foreign militant fighters, that have made the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA), their home base and the platform from which, the militant factions have spread wide spread terror into the heart of Pakistan and providing assistance to the insurgent fighters, waging a war against the coalition forces in Afghanistan.
According to military estimates, more than 60 militants have already died in the first 24 hours of the battle and some fighters have been seen running for cover and fleeing the immediate area of combat, The Pakistan military has also lost 5 of its soldiers in the fighting. This most recent war against the terrorists is the direct result of the string of suicide bombings that have rattled Pakistani security apparatus and the struck fear in the heart of the population.
The military offensive is comprised of more than 28,000 soldiers, up in arms against 10,000 battle hardened Taliban fighters, along with an estimated 1,000 foreign fighters from Uzbekistan. There are also reports of Arab fighters from Al-Qaeda, joining the battle against the military. The Pakistan forces involved in the battle are being closely supported by artillery and close air support, provided by helicopters and fighter aircrafts, that have been pounding the enemy defense lines and been trying to clear a path for the military forces.

Nishat Group Mian Muhammad Mansha said i will bring more annual investment in Pakistan than what will be gained through Kerry-Lugar aid bill
KARACHI: The Chairman of an independent Nishat Group Mian Muhammad Mansha who owns the MCB Bank, becoming critic of Kerry-Lugar bill, has said Wednesday, I can bring more annual investment in Pakistan than what will be gained through Kerry-Lugar aid bill.
But he conditioned the influx of heavy investment in country with the support of government if extended for the development of private sector in Pakistan.
This Mansha stated at the inauguration ceremony of induction of Nishat Power Company (NPC) in Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) here early on Wednesday morning.
On the occasion, he said the delay in the merger of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Muslim Commercial Bank (MCB) is caused by regulators which has cost account holders a lot.
He expected the merger of two banks by the end of coming week, saying Nishat Group is pioneer among Pakistani private giants, which will own foreign banks for the first time.
Moreover he said, our economy has started witnessing growth and can be further improved if we consider prices of our commodities.
