Hollywood based celebrities and royal dignities are well known for their spontaneous lifestyle. They always seem to be on the go – shooting films, promoting them in various parts of the world, taking part in concerts and tours, or meeting other significant super stars. Now who would have deemed that they can even engage theirselves into taking care of dogs?
Indeed, dogs are turning out to be such an integral part of these celebrities’ lives that they’ve also turned out to be stars themselves, turning out to appear in various magazines or even getting themselves into the movies. A few very famous real life stories are put forward here:
Queen Elizabeth II
The whole of England is in the know of the fact that this queen is a true animal lover. To your ultimate surprise, she’s also an awarded equestrian. What majority of the people would not be knowing is that she never travels alone. Apart from her husband, she’s also very much fond spending quality time with her little puppies, like Span, Spick and Bisto. By nature all of them are cocker spaniels. She is also in the possession of other breeds of dogs like Corgis and Dorgis, which are in reality a breed obtained by cross of species like dachshund and corgis .
It has turned out to be a very common fact that men in Drew Barrymore’s life enter in and leave out every other day, but her much adored yellow colored pet called Labrador/Chow still remains to be her ultimate companion. Moreover, she has also never had true “friend” that loved her more unconditionally than this cute little pooch. Way back in 2001, when the mansion in which Drew Barrymore and her the then-husband Tom Green were living was caught on fire, and it was eventually Flossie who turned out to save their lives by banging hard on the couple’s door. Without Flossie, we all the lovers of Barrymore could have lost one of the most beautiful Hollywood actresses ever.
Paris Hilton, a well known social personality and heiress of a huge hotel chain, is a bit naughty for a number of things, list of which includes pioneering mini pet dogs to be considered as fashion statements. It’s been years that she has been spotted without her cute little Tinkerbell. As it is a matter of fact that, Paris never thinks of leaving the spotlight, so it’s nothing but, just a matter of time before Tinkerbell will start making headlines herself! Simply like her owner.
Whether you describe them as competitors or as good friends, since the last 15 years the Shahrukh Khan vs Aamir Khan saga has been in the headlines to feed the readers. Surprisingly enough there has never been a clear winner as both Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan are immensely popular and worshipped in Bollywood, with a huge fan following.
Looking back in 1994, Shahrukh Khan starrer ‘Ram Jaane” was released along with Aamir Khan starrer “Akele Hum Akele Tum” on the very same day.To your ultimate surprise, both the movies were flop. From that point of time, both Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan have seen to be very choosywhile signing or producing any movie. People may have noted that both the superstars are real life friends but always remained cautious of not getting subdued by one another. For an example, Aamir Khan’s much appreciated film ‘Rang De Basanti”, had Shahrukh Khan initially as to be seen a role which was eventually played by R. Madhavan. On the other side, The King Khan had also offered Aamir Khan to play a cameo role in the much hyped “Om Shanti Om” item number, but the offer was declined by the perfectionist Aamir, stating that he was busy doing his own films.
An interesting fact is that Shahrukh Khan’s failure has always been Aamir’s success and vice versa. Sharukhh, Sunny Deol and Juhi Chawla starrer “Darr “was initially supposed to have Aamir Khan in the role played by Shahrukh who was in great doubts about playing in a villain’s role. The very brave SRK without bothering much about his hero image did it anyway. Likely, Amir Khan led Oscar nominated ”Lagaan” was initially offered to the King Khan who was not sure whether it would work or not and eventually Aamir Khan landed up creating history out of “Lagaan”.
More recently in the year 2008; surprising all Shahrukh Khan went for low key marketing. He did not publicise “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”as he did “Om Shanti Om”. He said that it was not the correct time to publicise or discuss about his film taking into account the tragic event of 26/11. On the contrary,Aamir Khan has landed up with slick promotional strategies for his last year release Ghajini, Whether its the print media, the television or even the online. He was seen to be promoting his productions film titled “Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na” quite well, but for Ghajini, he left no stone unturned.
With so much of contrasting steps and decisions adopted by these two superstars,both of them have always overcome their promises. That is why they are what they are!
Collecting autographs from celebrities is an age old fanaticism. While pursuing celebrity autographs it is significant to keep a few things in mind.
It is really exciting and a fun task to collect good quality autographed images which can actually be a good investment. Try to get the enjoyment value through the process of your collecting autographs, admire and exhibit your collection well, it will offer you with tremendous satisfaction.
As it is a matter authenticity and perfectionism, hence celebrity autographs are very much looked into. So, always be cautious of the negative aspects involved with collecting them. These days creating and maintaining the authenticity has turned out to be a gigantic task. The most important thing to be aware of is the fake nature.
Not all, but almost all of the autographs that are auctioned on Internet Auction sites are false. This is the main reason behind their price level being so attractive and any autograph lover would love to grab them with both hands. So, its really a matter of shame that people are spending money for photos and signatures that are valueless, so always be aware of fake autographs.
So, whenever you are looking to buy an autograph, get certain that you are in the know of what the celebrity’s signature actually looks like. From my own experience I’ve seen people giving away so called “Genuine” autographs for sale that contains spelling errors in the name written! Kate Winslet appeared Cate Winslet on a bidding site, and people like us were still bidding on it!
Get proper information about the source you are buying from
Never forget to look into the credentials of the source you are purchasing from. Always try not to accept higher positive response from an auction site as exhibiting their items to be more authentic, this generally means that the site will deliver your ordered product in time, predominantly as they are bound to do so. Most accepted and popular autograph dealing sites will be able to provide you the date and address of the place where the product was signed. Never forget to enquire about this piece of information when you are going to make a purchase.
So, whenever you are interested in pursuing an autograph, always keep these facts in mind and then make your about whether or not to buy it.
