Richa Sharma, one of India’s best play-back singers, kicked off the TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival yesterday. She was accompanied by singer Vishal Kothari, who took stage with the songstress at Confederation Park.

Sharma is recognized for her profound vocal skills and infectious melodies. Many describe her voice as being “one-of-a-kind” and “powerful”. She’s reportedly lent her voice to dozens of Bollywood films over the past decade and continues to make an impact in the industry.

“Music has no language, if they don’t understand the lyrics, they will still enjoy listening to my music — 100 per cent. … It’s my turn to represent Indian culture and Indian music in such a big event. My main attraction is all the artists. It is a big time for me. I learn from everybody.” Sharma said in a recent interview.

Former Miss Universe Lara Dutta says she’s definitely doing films again! The beauty had taken sometime off after giving birth to her baby in 2012, with husband Tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi. Now, Lara says she’s eager to get back to work!

We think that’s a terrific idea! And we’re not just saying that because she’s one of the most beautiful Bollywood actresses in the industry ;)

Lara Dutta made a statement during a recent interview saying, “Right now I am focusing only on doing films. I am definitely going to be back in films, you will see me soon. I am shooting this year, the release is not in my hands. I can’t talk about which films I am doing. Everyone knows that we are doing a sequel to ‘Chalo Delhi’, that is in pre-production stage. I am quite excited about it. Besides this, there are films that I am doing outside my production house.

The beauty was crowned Miss Universe in 2000, which led to her Bollywood debut in 2003 with the film Andaaz. She married Tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi in 2010.

That’s right! Bollywood’s Sonakshi Sinha will be lending her voice to the Hollywood flick, Rio 2. The English version of the film will be released on April 11th and we hear Imran Khan will also be joining the actress for the project.

Fox’s Rio 2 in 3D, is said to be dubbed in multiple languages. Although Bollywood has lent their voices to Hollywood in the past, this will be on a much greater scale, according to reports. The movie will feature the return of Blu, Jewel and their three kids, who leave their boring life searching for adventure in the Amazon rainforest.

The beautiful actress is thrilled and had this to say, “I enjoyed dubbing for Rio 2 because its such a fun film, and I felt like Imran and myself were perfect for the characters of Blu and Jewel! There’s a scene where Jewel is dancing and singing so they made me sing a few lines as well! It was such a new experience, I would have even loved to sing more, but unfortunately I am only a bathroom singer.
Other information has not been released but we’re eagerly anticipating the release!

Bollywood Stars are Selling Chinese Smartphones

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?
