Here’s the beautiful Deepika Padukone at the launch of her controversial short film called My Choice. The campaign was started by Vogue India to help promote women’s equality. However, the diva recently received some harsh reviews from her fellow Bollywood stars, among others who feel the film doesn’t encourage female empowerment but contradicts it instead.

Now that Hrithik Roshan is unattached, he’s not wasting any time chatting it up with the ladies. Here he is photographed with Paris Hilton at a hot spot in Dubai. The heiress was all smiles as she posed for the cameras with the Bollywood superstar. She’s quoted as saying “Hrithik’s a gentleman, very sweet and charming, and we hung out all night. I have heard so much about Bollywood and Hrithik represented India in the most elegant and romantic way! I can’t wait to go back to India.”  

Interesting. We wonder if Hrithik ended the night with a “bang bang” ;)

It looks as though the rumors circulating around Bollywood bombshell Jacqueline Fernandez are true after all! The Sri Lankan babe is set to star in the upcoming Canadian-British thriller ‘Definition of Fear’, directed by filmmaker James Simpson. 

James Simpson has worked with some of Hollywood’s brightest stars, such as Al Pacino and Penelope Cruz. The film is reportedly going to be shot in Canada and Jacqueline will head over once she wraps up her current project in Malaysia. This project marks James Simpson’s directorial debut and features a script that the nascent helmer also wrote. 

The story surrounds four girlfriends who take a weekend trip for the holidays to a cabin and discover they are not alone.

Oooh, we wonder how long Jacqueline’s character will survive in this hot horror mess!?!

Bollywood Takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

It looks like B-town celebrities are joining their Hollywood brethren in the ongoing Ice Bucket Challenge trend!  Check out Bipasha Basu as she takes a tiny silver bucket and dumps it on herself. Superstar Abhishek Bachchan proudly accepted the challenge from friend Riteish Deshmukh and took the icy plunge in a bathtub. He also challenged his father, Megastar Amithabh Bachchan, along with the entire Happy New Year film team.

Bipasha tweeted “Accepted my best friend suzie’s ! i am nominating RockyS and Raj Kundra!” yesterday. Supposedly, it was athlete Sania Mirza who initiated the craze in India after it started in the U.S. in support of ALS research. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. There is no treatment or cure for the disease.

Actors Akshay Kumar, Siddharth Malhotra, Pulkit Samrat and Ashish Chowdhry were also dared to take the challenge through actor Riteish Deshmukh, but no word on if they’re up to the challenge.

We’ll just have to wait and see if they accept!

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.

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.

 

 

Sunny D Joins Mera Sangeet Radio!

I am SUPER excited to announce my radio show starting this May on Mera Sangeet radio!

Sanjay Gupta Approached to Co-Produce Hollywood Movie

Hollywood has approached the busy director with a remake project for a popular foreign film. Gupta who was already working on movies, ‘Mumbai Saga‘ and ‘Khotey Sikkey‘ has to now make time for a third project.

“I am contractually bound to not reveal the details.” “All I can tell you is that it is a thriller like many of my previous films. But while the others were male-centric, this one has a woman protagonist and two important male characters. These guys approached me after seeing my body of work,” says Sanjay.

When asked who he will cast for the films, Sanjay says he may approach Bollywood actors John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan for the job. Maybe even Shahid Kapoor? He isn’t too sure about who he will cast for the female role but we’re sure the co-producer will reveal more as they move closer to production.

It’ll be a star but not the ones you are expecting. I’ll spring a big surprise,” said the 44-year-old. “I’ll finish it in one 35-60 day schedule. The city is important, we can easily film it in Mumbai. In fact, after struggling with the Mumbai of the 80s and 90s in ‘Mumbai Saga’, I would be happy to shoot the city as it is today,” he continued.

It is a universal theme with a taut screenplay that can be easily adapted to the Indian scenario. It won’t take me long to write it. I just need to work on the dialogue. It’s such a thrill to be finally doing a woman centric subject in Hollywood. Wow!

We agree with Mr. Gupta! Bollywood could use a little refresh ;)
