Thinderella to Nil Kaps: Daddy, shave karo

Recently Anil Kapoor gave daughter Sonam a fat-free sugarless cake for her birthday and a broad hint: get thinner. Like a dutiful daughter, Sonam took this to heart and is going on a new diet. But did everything work out that well for the Saawariya star?

Now Drift News has found out that Sonam gave her Dad a return present. Was it a hathoda? Drift asked Anil via fake telephone.

"Aisa viasa kuchh nahi, yo!" said Anil. "She gave me a set of clippers and a body shave kit"

Anil says he's taken the hint and will work hard on keeping his hair under control. "I've been recasting myself and my daughter wants me to appeal to the younger generation. And this Salman Khan and Himesh Reshammiya have set new standards for hairless appeal. So this is her way of telling me what to do to stay in the game."

"Why only last year Sonam gave me a Sidekick for my birthday. I told her: 'iski kya jaroorat hai, beta? I already have so many chamchaas'. But you know these youngsters today, everything is one two ka four for them."

Anil will start using his new gifts soon. "It will take some time. I will send you a picture when I'm done. And can you please call me Nil Kaps from now on? Part of the young demographic appeal, you see. And tell my young fans I sign off by saying: LOLvida! Unko aisi cheeje pasand hoti hai"

PS: Everyone, all of this is in jest. I recognize Sonam's struggles and admire her for pulling through. Not to mention I think Dad watching out for her is cute, if highly misplaced. The fault doesn't even seem to lie with most people I know who aren't enamored with thin people. That leaves the camera which adds ten pounds, forcing everyone in front of it to be thinner.

ROFL!Hahaha! Mindblowing post!I am glad I linked this article, cos the Aspi-effect has made it into such an entertaining post.
On a serious note,I think Sonam is already too thin. I dont think Anil is justified(Aspi, u call it cute??) in converting her into an anorexic.
Great caption:). Glad to be back here:).

I have you to thank for that link, anu g.

Anu, Sonam used to be a good 81 kgs before she slimmed down. I always found it shocking that she went from that weight to super skinny. Any dietitian will tell you that an extreme weight loss like that cannot be sustained for very long. In fact my cousin's theory is that Sonam did liposuction, her reasoning being that Sunita Kapoor co-owns VLCC.

So I have a sneaky suspicion that she *may* have started packing on the pounds. Haven't seen pics of her lately, so who knows. She may not be looking like how she did in Saawariya.

I find the entire episode disgusting. How sad is it when the girls says,"I have to. It's not a vanity. It's for my sanity. I can't be happy being healthy when the other girls are frantically losing weight."

And to top it, her own dad prodding her to become anorexic? I guess this is just like parents staying awake and mixing Complan while their kids prepare for 3rd grade exams!

Sorry I am just frustrated with this entire Size 0 thing Kareena made fashionable! Your post itself is funny. AK does need some serious personal grooming equipment.

Tania said...

rofl Aspi.Pretty awesome Aspiish touch to the whole scenario and Nil Kaps definitely needs a hair cut at the least.

J said...

Spoke to my sis today and she said Kareena is definitely getting a backlash from the size 0 thing and specially since Tashan flopped. There have been jokes all around as to why did she need to be size 0for that movie.

So much so that the girl is going around telling everyone that she is eating parathas for breakfast every morning.

Now on Sonam, I agree with Pitu, maybe she has packed pounds. Fortunately for her, her face does not show any weight gain. So it is ok if she is doing public appearances but outfits in movies can be brutal as we have seen with Rani in 'Bunty Aur Babli'.

Kanan said...

My bal hates my bal. AHAHAHAHA! L M A O . . . that was hilarious.

Aspi, I gotta add the middle name please Nil Bhaloo Kaps ;)

If Sonam has had issues with weight, she definitely needs to watch out but if she’s trying to copy Kareena, then she’s got a lousy role model. Check out Kareena here at an IIFA fashion show in Bangkok. Now those definitely don’t look like the Tashan biceps, do they?

With Shahid out of the picture and Saif thing going sore, I doubt she will keep it up. Also, I heard (on KWK) she has had a lot of struggle against her family members since she became vegetarian (they as in Shahid-Kareena don't even eat eggs). I bet she will go back to eating all the non-veg any day, or who knows may be she's already given up and also stopped doing those 100 surya-namaskaars she does or claims to do daily.

Nil Kaps ( Bhaloo ) features in a website - Hairyest Men !

girlie girl said...

HAhahah!! Hillarious Aspi! I was completely astonished by the fact that A. Mr. Nil Kaps asked his daughter to lose weight, and B. she would disclose something like that to the media!! Why would you do that?!

Mr Kaps does need to groom himself though, but i dont think there is enough wax in this world that can clean up that amazon-style jungle he calls his body!! eekk....

SkD aka AkD[Anil kD] now onwards said...

Aspi said...

Only a true fan would say that - and now that I think of it SkD, you're always pointing us to Anil Kapoor links. So something has been going on there for a while.

Tarik, thanks for reading my last comment and not using the F word. Congratulations.

Now try not repeating the same thing. You are interesting if you put your mind to it. Saying it once with a good reason attached will get you the same amount of attention.

Good luck.
