FWICE Wise: Katrina Falters, Salman Rescues!
By MovieTalkies.com, 29 June 2011
Katrina Kaif was filming for a deodorant commercial, though the stink raised by the FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) served amply to foul up the air. At Mehboob Studios in suburban Mumbai, Katrina found herself all distressed as FWICE employees showed up and reportedly halted the canning of the ad commercial, citing that she had flouted the rules of their organisation.
Expectedly, rising to the occasion of his (former) damsel in distress was… yeah, you guessed right… Salman Khan. And it is only when the ever Ready actor placated and assured them that Katrina would comply with their rules, did they come to a consensus and allow the ad filming to proceed.
As per FWICE regulations, it is mandatory for every actor to register with them and Kaif has yet to fill the forms and complete the formalities.
Dinesh Chaturvedi, President FWICE, is quoted to have said, "We didn't halt the shooting at Mehboob Studios, but we wanted to know why Katrina was not registered with FWICE. Everyone from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan has registered with us. The card costs only Rs. 600, it can be used during international schedules also and FWICE is working towards making life easier for the film industry."
