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?

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.
