Another Bollywood diva takes her talents to a whole new level.

Actress Deepika Padukone is taking her simple, yet chic fashion sense and collaborating with Van Heusen on it’s Woman’s “Limited Edition” collection.  The co-creation will be about monochromatic shades.  Think old Hollywood glam with a touch of modern chic with lots of rosy pinks and cobalt blues.  It is reported that the actress has been pitching ideas for the brand.

We’ll I’m hardly a designer. I think I am someone who has ideas but I’m not very good at executing. But I’m very open to seeing new things and sharing my ideas and then of course I need people to help me put it all together, It’s a little bit of what I already have and what I would like to see myself wearing. The collection is really about wearing your own personality. That’s something I’ve always believed in. It’s important to not forget who you are.” said the actress in a statement.

When asked, the Brand head at Van Heusen, Vinay Bhopatkar had this to stay: “We are absolutely delighted to co-create a line with Deepika Padukone exclusively for Van Heusen. These dresses are an ultimate combination of style, class, modernity and substance. Women fashion followers have been quite influenced by Deepika’s overall charisma and this creation sparkles with her elegant style.”

It is reported that the campaign was shot in Milan.

Go Deepika!

It looks like there’s a mutual love-fest going on between bigtime Hollywood director Brett Ratner and Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan as the two have exchanged messages on Twitter.  Fresh on the heels of Hugh Jackman voicing his admiration for SRK’s work, Ratner took to social media to let King Khan know he’s also an ardent admirer.

Ratner, who’s known for directing the ‘Rush Hour‘ series along with ‘X-men: The Last Stand‘, posted “@iamsrk I would love to work with you one day!! Big fan!!!” on SRK’s personal Twitter page.  SRK let Ratner know that he’d love that by tweeting back “@BrettRatner Would be my honour. I am an avid follower of your work & a huge fan of your films. Would love to come & see you work on sets one day.

Ratner is currently producing ‘Hercules: The Thracian Wars‘ on location and tweeted back “@iamsrk It would be an honor to have you on one of my sets. I am shooting Hercules now in Budapest for another month. Please be my guest!“. The film stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the legendary strongman and is slated for a July 25, 2014 release.

No word yet on if SRK has taken up his offer, but we (like most fans) would love to see SRK and Bret team up together for an action flick that would truly bring Bollywood and Hollywood (with lots of explosions, of course…) together!

The angry young man of Bollywood turned elder statesman can now add another hyphenate to his stellar career, Hollywood actor with top-tier representation!  In a great piece of news, Amitabh Bachchan has signed with hot, new Hollywood agency Resolution.  No doubt that Anil Kapoor had a hand in bringing Amitabh over to stateside representation as Anil is represented by mega-agent David Unger at Resolution.

It’s likely that Resolution is seeking to build on Amitabh’s great cameo as Jewish gangster Meyer Wolfsheim in ‘The Great Gatsby‘.  He more than held his own in pivotal scenes with Hollywood mega-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the Baz Luhrman directed vehicle. The film was based on the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name and went on to gross over $330 million worldwide.

No word on any upcoming Hollywood projects to Amitabh yet, but he’s currently filming Bollywood film ‘Welcome Back‘ with stars Anil Kapoor and John Abraham.  We’ll keep you posted on any of Amitabh’s future films, both Hollywood and Bollywood, and we’re sure there will be many more Hollywood projects in his future with such strong representation.

Leaving his personal life back in India, 64-year-old Bollywood legend, Om Puri is in Southern France with Oscar winning actress, Helen Mirren, shooting The Hundred Foot Journey, a Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey production.

The cheerful actor tells reporters that he and his estranged wife, Nandita Puri and ex-wife Seema Kapoor,  are in the middle of a very public battle in India, and that he’s grateful to have left his troubles behind him for a short time.  The actor faces domestic abuse charges back home and is in no hurry to return.  “I am far from the miseries of home and enjoying my stay here. I and Helen share a great rapport and that makes the shoot all the more enjoyable.” said Puri.   Indian actor Manish Dayal, will also be joining the cast.

The film circles around an Indian family which moves to France and starts their own restaurant across the street from Michelin, a three-star French restaurant, which is ran by Helen Mirren.  Puri plays a family man who falls for Helen’s character. Ooh La La!  “The romance is a spiritual one rather than being physical in its nature and as of now we have not shot any lovemaking scenes,” said the 64-year old.

The film is based on a novel by Richard C. Morais.

Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who’s been romantically linked to multiple actresses, says he and Ram Leela co-star, Deepika Padukone have excellent “chemistry.”

The hunky actor told reporters “We were destined to be cast opposite each other. It’s a chemistry between Romeo and Juliet. I hope it works as our chemistry is the driving force of the story.”   Funny, the second he was questioned about the rumors circulating about him and Deepika, he refused to comment.

  Yes, we know what you’re wondering.  Wasn’t he just photographed with Katrina Kaif?

  Uh huh….

Ram Leela is set to release in November.  Make sure to go check out Ranveer and Deepika’s “on-screen chemistry” guys.  Did we mention there are a few hot kissing scenes between the two in the upcoming movie?  When asked about her lip-locking sessions with Ranveer, Deepika responded “I find it amusing when people ask me about lip-lock scenes. As an actor there is no difference between any scene. But when you are working with Sanjay sir, he makes even the simplest scene most difficult. He tweaks the scene in his mind.

  Confused?  So are we..
