Today’s Bollywood stars are making international waves like never before and they’re doing it with style,”Bollywood style” that is.

Oppo, a Chinese brand has launched their latest 13 mega-pixel smartphone called the N1, in India. They plan on dominating the fast growing smartphone industry and expanding their brand in the country, by bringing some of Bollywood’s biggest stars on board for their latest campaign. Just recently, Oppo featured super stars Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor in their latest TV ad. The two are seen canoodling one another, much like in a Bollywood movie.

This isn’t the first time China has used star power to promote their brand. Leonardo DiCaprio was also seen in a Oppo smartphone TV commercial in the past. Oppo, being fairly new in the market, first began manufacturing Mp3 and Blu-Ray players in 2005. It released its first smartphone in China, back in 2011. They are now hitting up foreign markets like India, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Oppo India’s chief executive, Tom Lu, had this to say, “We see lots of growth opportunities in India. The country is the world’s third largest smartphone market but its smartphone penetration rate is only around 30%, much lower than the U.S and China.” Oppo plans on hitting up 12 cities in India in the next few months.

The brand is sure the ultra sleek phone will have a mass appeal, especially to the youth in India. What better way to grab their attention than with their favorite stars, right?

Sunny Leone Trying Her Hand at Speaking Hindi in Latest Movie!

In some “hmmm, this should be interesting...” news, former pornstar turned Bollywood item number girl Sunny Leone is learning hindi and going to attempt speaking it in her next film, ‘Jackpot The Full Jhol‘.  The film’s producers have hired a hindi tutor to help the fledgling Bollywood star learn a foreign tongue.

Sunny was born in 1981 in Sarnia, Ontario to Sikh Punjabi parents and never learned her native tongue as her parents sent her to a Catholic high school.  She has seemingly made the unlikely transition from full-fledged porn star, including a stint as Penthouse Pet of the Year 2003, to a Bollywood star although ‘Jackpot The Full Jhol‘ features her much more extensively than her previous films did.

Speaking of her attempt at speaking Hindi on film for the first time she said “I have learned all my Hindi lines for all my movies here. Even though ‘Jism 2‘ was dubbed I still had to learn every single word. And in ‘Ragini MMS 2‘ I will be dubbing my own voice. It’s very important to me to learn and work hard to get it right. I am extremely competitive so when someone tells me I can’t do something like act, dance, express emotions on screen, or speak Hindi, all it makes me do is work harder to prove all those negative people wrong.

Well, at least she’s trying as British national Katrina Kaif still hasn’t quite mastered Hindi and native New Yorker Nargis Fakhri sidestepped the issue of her lack of Hindi language skills by playing a half-British journalist who speaks exclusively in English with hindi subtitles in John Abraham‘s latest film ‘Madras Cafe‘. We can watch Sunny’s attempts at speaking Hindi very soon as ‘Jackpot The Full Jhol‘ is slated for release September 20, 2013.

Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani: All Set to Release in Israel

No Bollywood film has hit the theaters in Israel since the 2002 film Devdas, but that’s about to change with the Eros International film ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ on Friday.

For those wondering, yes, the film will be subtitled in Hebrew for the audiences in Israel. Kumar Ahuja, the president of Eros International said “there was no solid distributor until now and getting prints of the movie is an expensive process”. So it wasn’t a piece of cake breaking into the international market.

Israeli distributors, Shai Motion Pictures has invested in a portable projector which gives them the mobility to showcase movies at different locations at a lesser cost, says Ahuja.

“There is a huge demand for these movies since Israelis and the local Indian population over there are fond of Indian content,” he said in a statement.

The foreign distributors are excited about the film which stars Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur in a romantic thriller.

Shai Solomon of Shai Motion Pictures said “We are looking forward to it. It is after a long gap, after Devdas, that any Indian movie will release here. This itself calls for celebration and we are anticipating good numbers.”

Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani also opens in India on May 31st.
