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.

King Khan Richer Than Tom Cruise!!!

In some surprising news, Bollywood’s biggest star topped anything Hollywood has to offer as the latest figures show that Shah Rukh Khan earned $48 million dollars last year alone on his way to a personal net worth estimated at $600 million. SRK earned this mostly from endorsement deals as King Khan earned $5 million for last year’s hit ‘Chennai Express’. 

Tom Cruise, in comparison, comes in at an almost paltry by comparison $400 million. As for others on the list hailing from Bollywood, Salman Khan is second with an estimated $200 million and Amir Khan is not far behind with $180 million.
 
Bollywood finds itself in good company in the global wealth race as Shah Rukh Khan is topped only by comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s $820 million fortune and tied by Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor’s $600 million fortune. 
 
Others on the list include Mel Gibson at $425 million, Jack Nicholson at $400 million, Johnny Depp at $350 million, Keanu Reeves at $350 million, and Tom Hanks at $350 million.
 
How does King Khan feel about being more than halfway to a billion dollars in a country where 11.8% of the population falls below the international poverty level of $1.25 of income daily? Shah Rukh says he overcame humble beginnings to become the financial behemoth he is today and was accused of borrowing from author J.K. Rowling when he told an audience “Let me tell you, poverty is not an ennobling experience at all. Poverty entails fear and stress and sometimes, depression. I’ve seen my parents go through it many times — it means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships.”
 
Well, we’re sure Shah Rukh has made sure that neither he nor his family will ever experience those hardships again with 600 million reasons why! Hooray for Bollywood?!?

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.

Priyanka does it again and this time, she’s all heartbroken! That’s right, Ms. Chopra recently released her third single “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” followed by her music video shortly after.

The song is a heart gushing remake of Bonnie Raitt‘s classic “I can’t make you love me” and it seems to be a hit with her audience. Within the video, Priyanka and her man are shown kanoodling one another, until things hit the fan and all goes sour.

The video premiered in New York on April 28th, check it out:

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!
