Billy Ray Cyrus is answering to the off-color comments Jamie Foxx attained about his daughter Miley Cyrus over the weekend.
“It was unkind, there wasn’t nothing amusing about it,” Billy Ray said Bonnie Hunt on an appearance about “The Bonnie Hunt Show,” which recorded Wed and bares on Thursday.
He added, “And quite frankly, I think if I said those affairs about his daughter he may not find it so comedic.”
Over the weekend, Jamie told Miley had better, “do a sex tape and grow up,” on his Sirius satellite radio show, the Associated Press reported.
The actor was also reportedly heard saying: “Who is Miley Cyrus? The one with all the gums? She need to get a gum transplant!”
On Tuesday, “The Soloist” actor apologized to Miley on his show on “The Tonight appearance with Jay Leno, ” saying, “I so apologize to [Miley], and this is sincere. I’m a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don’t think any of it. And sometimes, as comedians, as we do, we go a trifle act too far.”

Neil confirmed the news and said, “Yes, I shot for the nude scene but it has been done aesthetically. Everyone knows Madhur’s style of working. His film are realistic and he makes a lot of effort to get all the nuances right. In this sequence, I am in the jail and I am asked to strip. I was a little apprehensive but Madhur handled it perfectly. My character in the film goes to the prison and what happens to him is extremely humiliating. I think this sequence is one of the most beautifully shot sequences in the film and it will shock people.” While shooting the particular scene with Neil in the buff, Madhur made sure that only he and the cinematographer were present so that Neil would be comfortable. Initially, Neil was hesitant but once Madhur convinced him that the scene will be done aesthetically, he was at ease. The scene was also shot from the top angle so that Neil would be comfortable.

Deepika donned a deglam look for this particular film. Deepika’s real life beau Ranbir Kapoor was also part of the project, and was in fact one of the most sincere, as he made time to come on extra days to understand his part and then accomodate the shooting schedule.

Shah Rukh was dropped after Pepsi decided to go full-steam into the ‘Youngistaan’ campaign, where, sadly, SRK no longer fits.
After being dumped by Pepsi a few months ago, SRK has now teamed up with Coca Cola to promote Sprite. As this break solidifies, we look at some memorable SRK-Pepsi ads.

It’s been a few months since Pepsi dropped Shah Rukh Khan as their brand ambassador after a relationship that was more than a decade long.
The reason was that SRK had hit the 40s and Pepsi was keen on promoting a young image. They managed to give SRK space on their first Youngistaan commercial, but realised that he would look a bit odd in ads focussing on young people, and as a result, they dropped him.
King Khan, however, isn’t one to sit and take the drop without putting up a fight. While he maintained a dignified silence at the time, now he has his revenge by switching loyalties to Pepsi’s only big competition – Coca Cola.
The Bollywood star joined his IPL team The Kolkata Knight Riders and in particular its captain Sourav Ganguly to promote Sprite, a Coke brand.
This move has given Coke one up on Pepsi who now has no Khan and in fact no real superstar in their campaign, while Coke has both Aamir and SRK.
It may be a matter of time before Coke puts the two reigning Khans together on screen.
