Look ma, floating rose petals

The Independent reports:
To the dismay of Bollywood starlets and former Miss Indias, one of the most coveted female roles in India has been snapped up by a man. Shah Rukh Khan, one of Bollywood's biggest male leads, is to appear in a role usually seen as the prize for one of India's most beautiful women.

A heartthrob for hundreds of millions of Indian women, Khan, who usually plays more macho roles, is to appear sitting in a bath surrounded by floating rose petals as the new Indian "face" of Lux beauty soap.
Well, well, what to say now. I just hope he doesn't appear next in one of these.
