Kangna-Deepika comparisons hound newcomer Bidita Bag!

Having modeled for many successful brands and campaigns, spunk-chick Bidita Bag, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut this week with the comedy From Sydney With Love, is in a quandary.

Image

The reason: This Bong beauty is continuously being compared to more established heroines namely Kangna Ranaut and Deepika Padukone. In fact, she has been getting a lot of film offers that have gone to Kangna earlier.

Image

“It’s amusing how some filmmakers have been thinking of me as some kind of replacement to Kangna Ranaut,” she happily giggles. “I’ve been offered at least half-a-dozen movies by makers who say I fit the bill for a ‘Kangana-type-of-role’ – whatever that means!”

Image

As if this isn’t enough, some makers tell Bidita, she looks and even sounds like Deepika Padukone; so much so that if she would dub for Deepika, no one might come to know – another comparison that the debutante has to live with, at least for now.

Image

And while the girl takes these links with a pinch of salt, Bidita does assert that she wishes to “carve a completely original identity” for herself, even if she agrees to a Deepika or Kangna-kind-of-role. Lol. Looking at her performance in the promos of From Sydney With Love, we do believe that the actress is versatile.

Image

For the record, her movie’s release will clash with none other than Jism 2; the debut vehicle of international porn sensation Sunny Leone. But Bidita smiles and shrugs it off. “I don’t fear Sunny Leone. Apart from my looks and acting capabilities, I have inner beauty,” she remarks with confidence.

When compared to the mass appeal Sunny’s cleavage carries, Bidita reacts, “A little bit of concealing is any day more erotic than showing everything, isn’t it?”

Sambhavna Seth upstages Rakhi Sawant in Tollywood!

In Bollywood, Rakhi Sawant and Sambhavna Seth are both firebrands in their own way. But when it comes to the Bengali film industry Tollywood, the spice queens are engaged in a new war or sorts.

Image

Some time ago, Rakhi went to town over performing an item number in an upcoming Bengali film. But as per the latest reports, now spunky Sambhavna has gone ahead and done a catchy Bong song in a Tollywood flick called Gundairaj.

What’s more! The makers of Sam’s movie are planning to beat Rakhi’s number by releasing their film before the other. Moreover, the girls have a history of fighting with each other.

Image

It can be recalled how Rakhi had lambasted Sambhavna during Bigg Boss and even ousted her from the dance show Zara Nachke Dikha; with rumours that she had asked its makers to drop Sam if they wanted Rakhi on the show.

Sambhavna was indeed dropped. Nevertheless, she moved on to participate in its competing show Dancing Queen and even won it.

Image

All this makes us wonder, if the makers of Jhalak Dikhhla Ja missed out on this whole Rakhi-Sambhavna war. After all, the babes could have made perfect competition and brought greater dramatic value to their show this year.

Evelyn Sharma caught partying hard with Kolaveri Di boy Dhanush!

Just hours after walking the ramp as a showstopper for ace designer Nazia Syed, Bollywood newbie Evelyn Sharma was spotted club-hopping with Tamil actor-turned-filmmaker Dhanush K Raja; as the Kolaveri Di boy turned 29 this week.

Image

A birdie tells us that ever since Evelyn visited Chennai for the inauguration of a gymnasium last month, she has become good friends with the “Why This Kolaveri Di” (Why This Murderous Rage, Girl?) boys – music composer Anirudh Ravichander and actor-writer-singer Dhanush.

After the two had flown down to Mumbai for Evelyn’s birthday bash a few days ago; she returned the gesture by heading to Chennai for Dhanush’s birthday bash this week. We even got to know that the boys took her on a club-hopping tour with a bunch of friends celebrating Dhanush’s birthday in pomp and style, while they all danced the night away in maddening frenzy.

Image

The half-German half-Indian Evelyn has already signed five movies before her debut this week with the comedy From Sydney With Love. Wonder if this new-found friendship with Anirudh and Dhanush will add a Tamil movie to her over-flowing kitty!

Evelyn Sharma to star with Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapur

The half-Indian half-German Evelyn Sharma, who made news as Bollywood’s latest fashionista sometime ago, seems to be emerging the first foreigner after Katrina Kaif to get a good grip on Bollywood.

Image

The newbie hasn’t even completed a year in the industry yet, but has just tucked her fifth film in her over-flowing kitty this week. Evelyn will now also be seen playing a lead with Vicky Donor star Ayushmann Khurrana, Delhi Belly fame Kunal Roy Kapur and newcomer Pooja Salvi in Rohan Sippy’s next!

Image

When Sippy offered Evelyn “a beautiful role” with her friend and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani co-star Kunal Roy Kapur; she did not hesitate a bit and jumped on board with enthusiasm.

“Having shot for four movies, my acting and especially my Hindi diction, have improved a lot,” quips the girl, who inspite of her half-foreign origins, dubs for herself.

Image

Evelyn will be seen making her debut with a funky role in the comedy From Sydney With Love releasing in the first week of August. Directed by veteran filmmaker Pramod Chakravorty’s grandson Prateek Chakravorty, the film’s songs and promos have already gained good popularity with the youth.

The girl is also working hard towards her first full-length lead in T-Series’ next tentatively titled Class of 2013. She plays a glamorous dream girl in the movie, which happens to be the directorial debut of Super Cassettes icon Bhushan Kumar’s enterprising wife Divya Khosla Kumar.

That apart, Evelyn plays a very spiritual girl opposite Prateik Babbar in Issaq and a sexy ditz in Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani; the Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer under Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions.

Spunk-chick Bidita Bag ATTACKS Sunny Leone!

Image

Newcomer Bidita Bag who makes her debut as the female lead in the upcoming comedy From Sydney With Love releasing in the first week of August, gets furious when asked about her film clashing with the release of pornstar Sunny Leone’s sizzling debut Jism 2.

Image

When questioned about the clash, Bidita, who has modeled for many successful brands and campaigns, fumes, “What can Sunny show in the film that she hasn’t already shown to the world? On the contrary, I have a lot to show, that too with my jism covered. Subtle sensuality is far more explosive than raw sexuality.”

ImageImage

“Moreover, Sunny is not even the topmost pornstar in the world! So what’s the fuss all about,” Bidita reacts with a wink, adding that we can consider keeping that off the record (that makes it our turn to wink this time).

Image

Such stinging statements from this new spunk-chick in town are sure to ruffle a few feathers! Wonder is how the fiery Ms Leone will react to the ‘insult’!

Swami Nithyananda bowled over by daily soap Devon Ke Dev… Mahadev

The Life OK channel wouldn’t have ever expected this in their wildest dreams! In a big surprise coming their way, spiritual leader Paramahamsa Nithyananda, popularly known as Swami Nithyananda, showered praises on the mythological daily soap, Devon Ke Dev… Mahadev, this week.

Image

In his discourse titled Inner Awakening at the lush green hill station of Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu, he told his devotees that the daily soap, which revolves around the life of Lord Shiva; the most powerful God within the Hindu culture, is one of the best things to have happened to the Vedic tradition in recent times.

“Bringing a mythological story to life is not a joke. If I put all my intelligence, philosophical strength, understanding and abilities, to try and make a serial on Shiva, it will not be better than Devon Ke Dev… Mahadev,” said Swami Nithyananda, recommending it to everyone.

“There are a lot of subtle points it portrays; like what happens when Devi assumes a human body, concepts of incarnation, why tapas (tapasya) is needed, and lots of such aspects, which the programme is presenting beautifully,” he said.

Image

Praising the show’s production values, set designs and costumes, the Swami remarked that the makers, writers and actors are doing an “amazing job,” bringing the story of Shiva alive with beautiful visuals and concepts which can be understood by the common man.

Image

“This correct depiction and representation of facts is a true service to the Vedic tradition,” said the Paramahamsa, who has recently been anointed the 293rd pontiff of the Madurai Adheenam; the oldest Saivite mutt established more than 1,500 years ago in South India.

Sambhavna Seth turns Basanti for five Gabbars!

If Gabbar Singh was alive today, he would have gone into a full-on tizzy.

Image

An upcoming slick-flick Qayamat Hi Qayamat has not one, not two, but FIVE villains doing a rehash of Gabbar Singh — Bollywood’s greatest villain ever. And just like Sholay, giving them company, is the nimble-footed Basanti… oops, we mean, the spunky Sambhavna Seth.

But the girl rues the absence of an Amitabh Bachchan or Dharmendra! “The film is surefire fun, but I’d have been happier with a dialogue like ‘Tera naam kya hai Sambhavna?’ from the action men,” she laughs.

Image

In a way, Sambhavna is not new to Basanti. She won the dance reality show Dancing Queen some time ago, which was judged by none other than Hema Malini. In fact, Sam (as she is fondly called), also did a Gabbar-Basanti skit for it, after which a visibly ‘upset’ Hema Malini walked out of the set in a huff!

Image

Sam was shocked and saddened as she otherwise found the yesteryears superstar very loving and affable. It was only when the episode was aired, she realized that Hemaji had actually pulled a fast one on her.
