Katrina Kaif has bagged a nomination at the coming 55th Filmfare Awards in best actor category for her role in 'New York'. Katrina says that she is happy with the nomination and won't mind if someone else wins the trophy. Everyone wants to win, everyone wants to be successful. When one makes a movie, he/she wants it to be successful. Similarly when one is nominated, of course he/she wants to win. But honestly as she is not used to winning that just the nomination is enough. She cannot complain as her awards have been so great from the audiences. She is happy just to be nominated. She would have a great time performing at the show. Katrina will perform at the the award function to be held Feb 27 at the Yash Raj Studios and she has teamed up with her favourite choreographer Ganesh Hegde to prepare for her performance. 'We haven't confirmed on which songs I am going to perform. We have only confirmed the choreographer and he is Ganesh Hegde. He is one of my favourites so I think it's going to be a phenomenal act this time. I am really excited and we are going to start practice this Thursday,' said Katrina.

Are you a fitness freak? Do you do aerobics regularly? Stop! Here comes something for you to give a thought. Millions of people who try to be in shape with jogging, swimming or hours of exercise have been rendered useless after scientists claimed the activities might be a mere waste of time. Researchers at the University of London showed that nearly 20 per cent of people who do regular aerobic exercise did not gain any significant health benefits. Principal investigator James Timmons, from the Royal Veterinary College, said that the other ways of keeping healthy, such as improving diet or taking medication, may actually work better. The research, published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, was conducted in association with the Human Genomics Laboratory in Louisiana and the Centre for Healthy Ageing at the University of Copenhagen. So thin twice before bending your back!
