Former X-Factor Britain Judge Conned Over Bollywood Dream!

An elaborate hoax duped Forber X-Factor judge Tulisa Contastavlos into thinking she was going to star in a Bollywood movie and was going to make $12.5 million to star in what people said was her dream picture.  The elaborate con included flying Tulisa around the world to posh, five-star hotels in Las Vegas and Los Angeles to convince her that the film was for real.

Tulisa had recently told Simon Cowell and the British X Factor that she would not be returning because she had something better up her sleeve.  The hoax had gone on for weeks and included in-depth conversations about the co-stars to be involved and “director” of the project.  Tulisa, who is of Irish and Greek-Cypriot ancestry, is reportedly devastated by being taken in by the elaborate ruse and has sought shelter in her $10 million British mansion.

The singer-songwriter first shot to fame with the single “I Swear” with her group N-Dubz and has most recently been seen on the British show X-Factor with Simon Cowell.  Although Cowell had axed her from the show very recently he had remained supportive of her and said he was very fond of Tulisa.  Cowell even went so far as to send Tulisa a message of support through her agent.  One can only hope some legitimate Bollywood producers will see news of this hoax and perhaps take a chance on casting her in an upcoming, legitimate project.

Bollywood actress Mallika Sherwat recently made a statement calling India a “regressive nation for women” on an international platform. According to sources, Priyanka strongly disagrees with Mallika.

I think we are a progressive nation. I disagree that we are a regressive nation. We are all sitting here and talking about educating the girl child, taking our country forward. I think it’s a misrepresentation of what our great nation is on the world platform,” said Priyanka.

She continued: “When it comes to Mallika’s statements, I think they were very callous and I don’t agree with her. It was upsetting for me as a woman. It was upsetting for me as a girl who comes from India. I think it was extreme misrepresentation of our nation. I don’t think it’s fair.”

Mallika has done numerous international projects and currently resides in Los Angeles. The 36-year-old made her debut in Bollywood back in 2003 with Khwahish. Shes worked on The Myth with Jackie Chan in 2005. Followed by Hisss and Politics of Love.
