Salman Khan has a new “good friend” along the lines of Somy Ali and Katrina Kaif. The latest being a the German supermodel Claudia Ciesla who’s hoping to bounce into B-Town with a little help from her new “friend!”

The model-turned-actress was in town for the dubbing of her Indo-English movie “Karma Crime, Passion, Reincarnation.” (Boy that’s a mouthful.) I believe her exact words were,  “If Katrina can do it, I think anyone can. Look where she came from! She had no knowledge of the language and still, she is at the top. I want to be that girl and better. I have all the potential to beat her.”

These days, Salman can be spotted tutoring his new protege at his favorite coffee shop at the J.W. Marriot, Mumbai. Apparently he spotted her on the next table with someone he knew and called her over. She told him about wanting to make it in Bollywood and he told her not to worry, now that she’d met him. Smooth.


How does Katrina feel about this? Well last I heard she was in Paris and has been voted the sexiest woman alive (again!) in a poll by FHM (India), ahead of Bollywood belles Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. (The results of the poll, which are yet to be announced, were leaked to Mumbai Mirror.) When Katrina was quizzed on the poll, she seemed blissfully unaware, “I haven’t been informed about this. It was great to win the poll last year and would be lovely to win it again… let’s wait and watch what happens.” There’s also a rumor going around about Kat and Imran Khan which I refuse to believe. (He’s just too good a guy to cheat on his girlfriend no?)

Didjya Know?
Claudia began modelling at 15. At 17, she moved to Germany from Poland and became an Internet glamour model. The German newspaper Bild arranged an examination of Ciesla by a plastic surgeon and reported, that her boobs  (size: 38DD) were entirely natural. She is currently pursuing an acting career in Bollywood. Oh lordy.

Oh and incidentally Salman Khan is apparently the most kissed actor at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum! According to the spokesperson at Madame Tussauds, “Salman beats all the Indian personalities in popularity chart. He is the most kissed and most photographed amongst the lot. Khan joins the likes of Hollywood’s Justin Timberlake who is the most hugged at the museum,” added the spokesperson.
