Britney's new year resolution revealed

Britney Spears has kept a rather nail-biting resolution for the New Year—the pop star wants to quit chewing her fingernails in 2009!
The Womanizer singer wants to take better care of her hands starting New Year – because she longs for manicured and attractive hands. And thus she is determined to quite her dirty habit as well as get rid of the reason behind it—not to worry anymore.
"Next year, I have to learn to stop biting my nails! I would like to stop worrying so much, because I worry all the time. And to learn how to be happier, just in general. I have to learn to take things not so seriously,” she said.
However, the pop superstar is not sure if she’d be able to stick to her promise, as she doesn’t have a good history of keeping her resolutions. "I end up breaking them. It's hard,” she added.

The role was offered to her but the shooting of the film will not happen so soon because first she will be completing the Partner 2 sequel.

Madhavan-Vidya's Together

The secret behind the chemistry between Vidya Balan and Madhavan in the Airtel ads is out.

It is Madhavan's two-year-old son Vedant.The child bonded so beautifully with Vidya on the sets of Guru that she became a part of Madhavan and his wife Sarita's inner circle.In fact the cell phone company has now decided to put out a series of ads featuring Madhavan and Vidya as a couple connecting emotionally on the phone. Madhavan has been running in and out of Mumbai to complete these ads.
"Initially I was only the brand ambassador for Airtel's southern market. But now they've signed me on for the whole country,

" Madhavan said."We've shot a series of ads with Vidya and me. For the last one week I've been running in and out Mumbai and Chennai. During the daytime I'm in Chennai shooting for a Tamil film. Then I take a night flight to Mumbai to dub for the ads," the southern star said.Curiously, Maddy, as Madhavan is fondly known, and Vidya have hardly shot together for these ads about love and togetherness.
"We've just done one shot together. The rest has been shot with the two of us separately. It's strange people have noticed so much chemistry between us when we aren't even together in the ad. My wife Sarita loves the ad. She thinks Vidya is better than me in the ad. But then she's my harshest critic. All three of us Sarita, Vedant and I adore Vidya," he said.Vidya has done ads prior to her acting career. This is her first ad after starring in films.She thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
"Years ago I was supposed to do a Tamil film with Maddy. Then we were also supposed to do a Deepa Mehta film together. I think Maddy and I were destined to do special things in limited space," says Vidya."Both of us had cameos in Mani Ratnam's Guru. People still talk about our romantic scene in the rain (including a kiss). And now the Airtel ads. It's unbelievable how much chemistry people have seen between us in those few seconds. I always say it's the moments that make a romance," she added.
