ACTRESS Fasha Sandha (pic) said she has no regrets about having her hair cut short for a scene in her next film, reported BH Ahad.

One of the scenes filmed three days ago showed Fasha’s character being abused by her brother (a role portrayed by Fauzi Nawawi), who cuts her shoulder-length locks.

“When I was offered the part, I knew of the sacrifice I had to make. As an actress, I am committed to the promise I made.

“I have not had short hair for a long time but I do not regret it as long as the character is portrayed accurately,” she said.

Although there was an option of donning a wig for the film, Fasha said it would only prevent her from acting her role well.

Fasha’s character, Tisha, was initially supposed to have gone bald but the suggestion was later scrapped to avoid any controversy.

Fasha uploaded a photograph and video clip of the scene on her Instagram two days ago, leaving fans shocked and upset, especially with Fauzi.

“I don’t blame Fauzi as he was only acting out his role. He even apologised to me before we filmed the scene,” Fasha said.

>A cat lover in Kuala Lumpur spent RM45,000 on a “house” for his pedigree pet.

Habbil Hussain, 35, designed the little house complete with an air-conditioning unit to prevent bacteria from breeding in it, reported Metro Ahad.

“I spend RM1,000 every month to cover the cost of food, vitamins and to pay a worker to clean the cat house,” said Habbil, who owns a pet store in Kuala Lumpur.

Habbil’s first cat was a female Birman breed named Clara Dara.

He bought it from Australia for RM2,000 using the money he saved from working as a watch salesman after leaving school.

Today, he breeds 10 cats, all from the same Birman breed, as he liked their furry body and blue eyes.

Another cat lover, engineer Mohd Hafizuddin Abdul Rahman, splurged RM8,000 on a male British Short Hair breed from Bulgaria, and another female from Belarus for RM5,500 in a span of six months.

Mohd Hafizuddin, 32, said his love for felines started when he saved a kitten at a construction site seven years ago and helped care for it for two weeks at his home in Selangor.

“After many visits to cat shows, I developed an interest in short hair breeds and saved up to buy two cats, which later had three kittens in 2013,” he said, adding that he spent RM700 a month on his pets.

> Metro Ahad also reported about a man who was killed while making an illegal connection from an electricity pole to a nearby house in Semporna, Sabah.

He was electrocuted and his body got stuck to the pole.

The body of the 35-year-old man was found two days ago.

District Fire and Rescue Department supervisor Abdul Kadir Ab Halalan said seven firemen removed the body.
