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.

Bollywood megastar has been found taking time to regroup after his notoriously high profile divorce from wife of 14 years Sussanne Roshan. But the couple go even further back as the 40-year old ‘Krrish 3’ star had known Sussanne since he was twelve and they had officially been together for 17 years.

Hrithik recently released a photo showing him relaxing Indian style with sons Hrehaan (8) and Hridhaan (4) at the Magic Kingdom. He released a photo showing him seated Indian style with the caption “On the road less travelled u must sometime stop and take a picture”. Audiences can next expect to see the Bollywood headliner in ‘Bang Bang’ opposite co-star Katrina Kaif.

It’s been a busy year for Hrithik with a recovery from brain surgery following an on-set accident, let’s hope that he really can enjoy some R & R with his sons while soaking up all the magic and sunshine Disneyland has to offer.

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.

Sunny D Taking Her Talents to Juhu Beach (Or Bollywood in L.A. at Least!)

You heard it here first folks, perennial favorite RJ Sunny D has taken her radio hosting talents to Bollywood as she spearheads an infusion of fresh, new talent to Indian radio station Mera Sangeet LA. Mera Sangeet is an Indian-centric radio station being brought to the Los Angeles airwaves by Bollywood star Pooja Batra and film director and producer Anshuvijay Rode, that seeks to better serve the Hindi-music seeking masses here stateside.

Sunny D, A.K.A. Sanna Khan, will be brightening up your radio dial through an online streaming show called “Ready, Steady, Go!” from 7-8 AM every morning beginning May 15th! Although the name seems more evocative of ‘60’s British pop-culture (invoking thoughts of Mods, Who records, and British flags on everything…), Sunny D will use the platform to play an eclectic variety ranging from Bollywood and songs to modern day pop fare all with a dash of her own sparkling personality and roguish wit thrown into the mix.

Sunny D joins such Mera Sangeet on-air talent like RJ Karan on Mera Sangeet’s line-up with rumors claiming Pooja Batra may even lend her talent to Mera Sangeet’s programming. Is there any truth to these rumors? Only time will tell, but make sure to tune in to Mera Sangeet LA online at http://www.Merasangeet.com or download their iPhone app so you can get the station streaming by finding the Mera Sangeet App at the Apple App store.

 

 

Hollywood Meets Bollywood in Tampa for IIFA Awards!

Hollywood icons John Travolta and Kevin Spacey took part in all the fun this past weekend as Tampa welcomed the first ever IIFA Awards held in the United States to town. Festivities kicked off with Travolta and Spacey joining Bollywood megastars Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshone, and Anil Kapoor, among others, on stage for many song and dance routines that reflected Travolta’s musical film past along with Bollywood’s affinity for musicals both past, present, and future.

A lucky 20,000 people caught this year’s IIFA Awards show, which is slated for release on worldwide television in June, and IIFA said it expects 800 million people to ultimately watch the awards show as Bollywood continues to increase its global footprint.

Travolta was presented with an award for his contribution to international film and gushed afterwards about the proceedings. “The first musical number, it was, wow, that was amazing,” Travolta opined on Saturday. “I find Indian films very original in energy and life. Every time I’ve had an opportunity to sing or dance in a movie, it’s been glorious … I think we’re simpatico. I would love for the Bollywood influence to actually infiltrate and give Hollywood more confidence in musicals and dance. Musicals in Hollywood are sporadic.”

Travolta had an impromptu chance to relive his ‘Saturday Night Fever’ days with star Hrithik Roshone as the latter presented him with his career achievement award.

Kevin Spacey also wowed the crowd with his dance with the big winner of the night Deepika Padukone to the tune of the ‘Lungi Dance’ and even donned the song’s signature wrap around over his tux for the show-stealing performance at the star-studded event. The Oscar-winning star of classics such as ‘American Beauty’ and ‘The Usual Suspects’ seems to have enjoyed himself as he said ‘It is great to be here and see the performances at IIFA.’

Bollywood stole the selfie trend from Hollywood as Anupam Kher tweeted a selfie with Spacey, Priyanka Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Aftab Shivdasani, Ritesh Deshmukh and Rajiv Kapoor where everyone seems to be having a great time from IIFA!
