LONDON Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has had a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer and says she hopes her story will inspire other women fighting the life-threatening disease.
Jolie wrote in the New York Times on Tuesday the operation had made it easier for her to reassure her six children that she will not die young from cancer, like her own mother did at 56.
"We often speak of 'Mommy's mommy', and I find myself trying to explain the illness that took her away from us. They have asked if the same could happen to me," wrote Jolie, 37. "I have always told them not to worry, but the truth is I carry a 'faulty' gene."
The Oscar-winning actress said her doctors had estimated she had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer. "Once I knew this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much as I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy," she said. Partner and fellow Hollywood star Brad Pitt was by Jolie's side through three months of treatment that ended late in April, she said. The two got engaged last year.
Jolie said that even though she had kept silent about her treatment while it was going on, she hoped her story would now help other women. "I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope that they, too, will be able to get gene tested." Breast cancer alone kills about 458,000 people each year, according to the World Health Organization. It is estimated that one in 300 to one in 500 women carry a BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 gene mutation, as Jolie does.
OPENNESS PRAISED CNN anchorccannounced on Tuesday that she had breast cancer and was also getting a double mastectomy. Sambolin, who anchors CNN's "Early Start" morning show, discussed her condition on the show while talking about Jolie's procedure. "I struggled for weeks trying to figure out how tell you that I had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was leaving to have surgery,"
Sambolin, 47, said on Facebook. "Then ... Angelina Jolie shares her story of a double mastectomy and gives me strength and an opening." Jolie's decision was also welcomed by breast cancer patients and charities. Richard Francis, head of research at the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity in Britain, said it demonstrated the importance of educating women with the gene fault.
"For women like Angelina it's important that they are made fully aware of all the options that are available, including risk-reducing surgery and extra breast screening," Francis told Reuters. Breast Cancer Campaign Chief Executive Baroness Delyth Morgan said Jolie's openness in talking about her experience and her decision to have surgery would raise awareness of the disease and its risk. Jolie won a 1999 best supporting actress Oscar for "Girl, Interrupted".
She lends her star power to a range of humanitarian campaigns, including serving more than 10 years as a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. In April, she urged governments to step up efforts to bring wartime sex offenders to justice.
The actress, who delivered the biggest hit of her career with I HATE LUV STORYS, sure seems to have some hidden talents as her friend, Kunal reveals. "Sonam is a multi-tasker and she has multiple talents. The fact that her father-sister duo is producing the film gave her a lot of creative freedom and the power to implement them. In fact, I was amazed by Sonam's fashion sense and her understanding of the adorable characters in the film," admits Kunal Rawal, who is an accomplished high-end designer.
CHECK OUT: Sonam Kapoor's style mess
She may have rubbished co-star Abhay's intelligent image but the actress sure knows her pr�t and her haute couture. And having an upcoming rising star like Kunal as her friend helped her a lot in helping Abhay don a highly stylised look making him the next hunk in town. After doing films, which have been appreciated for his performances, now Abhay is paying some attention to style too and the duo of Kunal Rawal and Sonam Kapoor are his partners in crime.
Kunal has designed the looks for the male leads (Abhay Deol, Arunoday Singh and Cyrus Sahukar) for the movie AISHA (an adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Emma') by Anil Kapoor Films Company production. In the romantic film, AISHA, where Abhay Deol plays Arjun Barman (an investment banker), designer Kunal Rawal says that his brief was to style Abhay according to his profession. "Abhay is a clotheshorse. His character is the perfect dresser. Strait-laced yet fun and casual but his outfits are slightly slicker. He's every girl's dream. We have given Abhay suits in mixed subtle colors, suits without belts, vintage tie clips, vintage YSL belts from New York in contrasting colors. Arjun loves his brown belts and shoes."

Movie Review : Once upon a Time In mumbaai talks about an era which takes us back through the memory lane in to the abyss of the mafia world ruling Mumbai in the 80’s when Mumbai breathed terror all the time. According to media speculations the move centers on the lives of Dawood Ibrahim and Haji Mastan who were the order of the day at that time. The movie directors, spokesmen and disclaimer all claim that it has no inspiration from any person’s life and that the similarities are mere co incidences but the parallels are too distinct too ignore.
The quality of the movie lies that besides the powerful storyline of the rising of the prince and the falling of the reigning King, the music of the movie does the wonders for the audience. The compositions are just awe-binding.
Set in the era of 1970s the movie tracks the careers of two famous gangsters Sultan Mirza palyed by Ajay Devgan and his recipient in line Shoaib Khan a classic character played by Emraan Hashmi and then their conflicts, which ensues when Shoaib challenges his protector and claims to rule the underworld of Mumbai is simply marvelous.
Director Milan Luthria’s has worked extensively for the movie which is completely visible in performances of the lead gangster’s as well as Randeep hooda as the tale narrating police officer, the jewellery shop romantic scenes from Prachi’s and Emraan conflicts with Ajay.
Pritam’s music is already rising up the charts doing the trick for the movie. The on screening pair of Ajay and Kangana ( a 70’s actress) is replete with amazing chemistry. And added to this romance is the pair of Prachi and Emraan.
