Deepika plays with Ranbir inside the car


Not much has been heard about Ranbir Kapoor and his girlfriend Deepika Padukone for quite sometime now but that doesn't mean that they are not having fun. In fact, they are having good time together away from the limelight.

It is said that the couple had a wonderful time shooting for Bachna Eh Haseeno in Sidney. Sources said that Deepika was in playful mood. She rolled up a paper and started scratching Ranbir's air, who was in the front seat of the car. She and her co-star Hiten Paintal took turns in playing with the actor, who was half asleep. At first, Ranbir warned the duo but got confused later,

Deepika and Ranbir
are all set to flew off to Bangkok together to complete the shooting of Bachna Eh Haseeno.

Runs an issue; girls no problem for Yuvraj

Guess what? Yuvraj Singh's romantic liaisons with Bollywood actresses have not ended with a heartbreak after Deepika Padukone left him in the dumps 'down under'. The flamboyant Yuvraj now has a new arm candy from tinsel town and it is none other than Riya Sen, known more for her off-camera antics rather than on-camera skills.

The couple was seen together in a private party in Mumbai before Yuvraj left for the Asia Cup in Pakistan. And after some cozy moments, they reportedly left the gathering and quietly slipped into Yuvraj's car.

Yuvraj was earlier in the year seen with Riya's elder sister Raima at a fashion show. But while that may have been a platonic relationship, his liason with Kim Sharma was never in doubt. Well, Yuvraj may be struggling for runs, but he surely is having no problems in returning to form when it comes to pretty damsels.

Beauty tips by Deepika

Deepika Padukone talks about her tried and tested health and beauty tips

Flawless skin fundas

I am not much of a make up user and stick to the basics like moisturiser and lip balm. I also do not go for regular facials but I do indulge in clean ups once in a while. Almost as a ritual, every week I like to luxuriate in a relaxing body massage with lukewarm coconut or baby oil. It relaxes and rejuvenates me like nothing else.

Water the wonder potion

Water acts like a miracle to flush away all the toxins from the body and I do not mind drinking gallons of it. It keeps the skin supple. I have also heard that a glass of warm water with honey, taken first thing in the morning, not only cleanses your system but also helps cut excess flab.

Fitness is the key

I think working towards maintaining a healthy body should be a priority for everyone. I try and work out as often as possible; since I am regularly traveling, it becomes difficult to have a daily work out routine but whenever I hit the gym I do cardio and light weights. I have an athletic body, thanks to my years dedicated to badminton but I do concentrate on butt regions.

Golden rules of dieting

A healthy diet is like the first step towards a fit body. I take a balanced diet with carbs and proteins, and am very particular about dietary proportions. I have three main meals in a day, breakfast being the most important of them all. Since south Indian food can be heavy sometimes, I try and balance it by say, having a dosa minus the potato filling; if I am having eggs, I take only the white portion and if I have idlis I substitute coconut chutney with a pudina chutney.

Stay sexy secrets

I am a firm believer in natural mediums for skin care. One should never try to overglob any products as I think the more you fiddle with your skin, the worse it gets. Just resort to the basics of skincare and witness the splendid results

Ranbir-Deepika's 'liplock' story

Ranbir-Deepika's 'liplock' story
For the first time ever in the history of awards, a video excerpt has been sent to all the TV channels to boost the show’s ratings.

The excerpt or trailer shows a liplock between Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor.

Deeps had gone to the Bangkok airport to receive Ranboo. Is this the way to treat young stars who had made it a point to attend the show?

Both Ranboo and Deeps are too well-bred to react.. but even the news channels were shocked.. by the show organisers’ tactics.

Debutants ringing cash bells in 2008

It is raining newcomers in Bollywood with the year 2008 seeing nearly a dozen debutants taking a bow on silver screen.

Interestingly, most of them come from film families. The first half of the year saw star kids like Mimoh Chakraborty and Sikander Kher making a debut with Jimmy and Woodstock Villa respectively.

The much publicised films did not do well at the box office, but television star Rajeev Khandelwal's debut low budget feature film Aamir opened to good reviews and critical acclaim.

The latter half of 2008 will provide an opportunity for debutants and newcomers in Bollywood with a slew of releases featuring them releasing in the latter half of 2008.

The eagerly awaited debutants are Harman Baweja (Love Story 2050) and Imraan Khan (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na) on July 4.

Harman, is son of filmmaker Harry Baweja while Imraan is the nephew of actor-producer Aamir Khan. Bachna Aae Haseeno starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone is set for an August 15 release.

Ranbir and Deepika made the debut in 2007 with Saawariya and Om Shanti Om respectively and now will star opposite each other in this Yash Raj banner film.

Ranbir's Saawariya co-star Sonam Kapoor who has kept a low profile since the release of her debut film will be seen opposite Abhishek Bachchan in Rakesh Mehra's Dilli 6 later this year.

Sikander Kher, son of Anupam and Kiron Kher made his debut in Sanjay Gupta's Woodstock Villa which did not get a good opening. While his second film Summer 2007 which released today looks promising with its unique story of five medical students from well to do families coming face to face with agrarian crisis in Vidarbha.

Mithun Chakraborty's son Mimoh made his debut in Jimmy but the film sank without a trace at the box office.

Despite their films not doing well, both Sikander and Mimoh have already been signed on by several filmmakers. Trade analyst Amod Mehra said that the trend of newcomers knocking the doors of Bollywood is not new.

"Over the last few years, the production of films has gone up considerably from about 100 to more than 150. The number of mainline top stars remains the same and they are selective about the films they do," he said.

According to Mehra, newcomers have always been from the film families and this was not a new phenomenon. Trade sources say that not many outsiders succeed in their quest for fame, glamour, creativity in an atmosphere of cut throat competition.

"In the recent times most famous example is Shah Rukh Khan. Among the women, Aishwarya Rai who was crowned Miss World in 1994 had to work hard for ten years to make her way to the top”.

Among the girls, the famous debutant last year was Sonam Kapoor, daughter of veteran actor Anil Kapoor. But she was completely overtaken by her more glamorous contemporary Deepika Padukone.

Deepika was already a known name in the fashion circuit before she made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om.

Another new girl, Bangalore model Anushka Sharma will make her debut opposite King Khan in Aditya Chopra's Rab Ne Bana di Jodi. The film is slated for release at the end of 2008.

Kumar Mangat's Haal-e-Dil will see the beginning of three careers, his daughter Amita Pathak, Nakuul Mehta and Adhyayan, son of actor Shekhar Suman.

Model Sonal Sehgal will debut opposite John Abraham in Nagesh Kukunoor's Aashayein while Sonal Chauhan who was paired opposite Emraan Hashmi in Mahesh Bhatt's Jannat has got good reviews for her performance. The film has also been declared a hit.

Singer Himesh Reshammiya, who romanced teenager Hansika Motwani in his debut film Aap Ka Suroor in 2007 has been paired opposite Shweta Kumar, daughter of filmmaker Indra Kumar in Karzzz, a remake of 1980s blockbuster Karz directed by Subhash Ghai in which Rishi Kapoor played the protagonist.

He is also working opposite newcomers in his future projects as well. Trade sources feel that the generation next is talented and are waiting for the right break and opportunity.

They feel that it is an encouraging sign that generation next is knocking at Bollywood's doors.

"Over the years, the film industry has been experimenting with different genre, subjects and the difference between mainstream and parrallel cinema has virtually diminished. The newcomers have a good opportunity to showcase their talent and also entertainment movie buffs," they said.

Deepika :Glam girl went missing at T20

deepika glam

There are people who make themselves conspicuous by their presence and there are gifted people who make themselves more conspicuous by their absence. Bollywood’s latest marvel girl, Deepika Padukone, is one in the latter category.

Her absence from IPL matches was the subject of online gossip as she had been so prominent Down Under when the Indians were playing early this year. Having gone to Australia for a fashion shoot, the pretty damsel was seen in the company of Yuvraj Singh. Latest gossip has it that boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor is not a great cricket fan and that is why Deepika, the daughter of All-England badminton title winner Prakash Padukone and his model wife, was not present at any of the cricket. Bollywood was very well represented at the IPL with the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Juhi Chawla, all from the franchise owner’s category and many other stars, Katrina Kaif included, gracing the matches. It appears cricket is off Deepika’s radar now that she has been adjudged the best newcomer at the glamorous IIFA awards in Bangkok. This is at least one case of cricketentainment moving over fully to entertainment.

Deepika Padukone to lead India Day parade in New York

Deepika Padukone, who made her Bollywood debut with Om Shanti Om last year, will lead the annual India Day parade in New York on August 17.

The parade, which has showcased India's culture on Manhattan's Madison Avenue since 1981, will also have industrialist Vijay Mallya [] as chief guest, Federation of Indian Associations (FIA) president Yash Paul Soi announced.

The FIA, an umbrella group of cultural, educational and community organisations in New York tristate region, which organises the parade, flagged off the event at the Indian consulate in New York on June 10.

The parade will begin on 41st Street, wind down Madison Avenue and culminate in a variety show on 23rd Street, drawing an estimated 50,000 people.

Last year, Priyanka Chopra was the grand marshal at the event, which celebrated India's 60th anniversary of independence. In past years, Govinda [], Madhuri Dixit [], Dev Anand ], astronaut Sunita Williams [] and music conductor Zubin Mehta have marched with the crowd.

On the guest list this year are city mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Jersey governor John Corzine, New York governor David Paterson, and President Bharrat Jagdeo of the Republic of Guyana.

The June 10 event, where consul general Neelam Deo lauded the organisers for celebrating India, paid homage to the martyrs of the first major struggle for independence in India in 1857. The gathering observed 57 seconds of silence.

Rajni Sarin, a co-convener of the BJP's doctors' cell, is travelling to New York with a kalash (metal pot) that contains soil from the birthplaces of the martyrs in the battle for independence. On May 10, many events were organised in India to mark 'Naman 1847.'

The FIA also announced its plans to campaign for two Gandhi statutes on Ellis Island and on the campus of the United Nations. The organisation is very positive about the response from the UN, former FIA president Jayesh Patel said, and fund-raising will start as soon as the requisite permissions are granted. It is drawing hope from the UN declaration last year of Mahatma Gandhi's [Images] birthday as International Day of Non-Violence. FIA will also campaign to get the Mahatma's birthday celebrated in public schools in the New York region.

Deepika With Bollywood’s biggest @ IIFA


Bangkok, Thailand, is still recovering from the extravaganza that is the IIFA (International Indian Film Awards), which concluded on Sunday.

The Bachchans — including Amitabh, Jaya, Abhishek and Aishwarya — charmed audiences and fans alike. Abhishek and Ash, however, did not bag an award for Guru, which was nominated in the Best Film, Best Actor and Best categories, among others.

Ironically, Shah Rukh Khan, whose films won most of the awards — nine for Chak De! India including best actor and best film, and five for Om Shanti Om — was not present at the show
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, who came in arm-in-arm, took home the best debutant awards for Sawaariya and Om Shanti Om, respectively..

Kareena Kapoor bagged the Best Actress award for her role in Jab We Met. Meanwhile, director Imtiaz Ali lost the Best Director award to Chak De’s Shimit Amin, and had to be content with the award for best dialogue writer.


Akshay Kumar, who was recently conferred with an honorary doctorate, received a special achievement award.

‘I was just a young man when my adventure began here. I was naive, restless and eager to please. This city embraced me with such love and kindness,’ The Times of India quoted the star as saying in his acceptance speech.
While Kareena commanded the stage, beau Saif Ali Khan was spotted looking a little worse for wear.

The supporting awards went to Irrfan Khan and Konkona Sen Sharma for their work in Life In A… Metro.

Deepika, the Fighting Machine

From breaking hearts she has graduated to breaking bones!

Deepika Padukone‘s hot on the circuit and the smart dame is making hay while the sun shines. A big budget debut followed by a Yash Raj film coupled with a string of high profile boyfriends!

Not bad at all. The girl‘s going places, no doubt!

The perfect icing on the cake is her decision to turn full fledged action girl. The buzz is that she has done some deadly stunts in her upcoming movie ‘Chandni Chowk to China‘ where she is opposite Akshay Kumar.

Or is her competition with boyfriend Ranbir not over yet?

Their debut movies hit the theatres on the same day. She already won when ‘Saawariya‘ sucked and ‘OSO‘ rocked, thanks to over the top publicity and SRK! Now even before Ranbir signs a true blue action film, Deepika‘s already into one totally!

Maybe she wants to help him with tips later in his career like how Ash does it with henpecked hubby
Abhi! No wonder they call Ash her big time idol!

In this movie she has a double role, something she has already done in OSO. The Bitch has found out that she had started training in martial arts, right after her debut.

In spite of all the hoopla, her post interval part in OSO stuck out like a sore thumb. Maybe that‘s why she wants to make sure that it doesn‘t happen again. A perfect cover up for the lack of great acting skills!

Deepika specially learnt the art of martial arts for three months in India. Then she went to Shanghai for a seven week training session for the same. She even took lessons from her co-star Akshay Kumar.

It didn‘t end there. She loved to kick a** so much that she requested director Nikhil Advani to let her perform a full song based on the art. Looking at her enthusiasm, Nikhil asked her if she could do some stunts and she happily agreed to do them!

Don‘t be surprised if she turns Charlie‘s Angel in real life too and actually protects Ranbir from the baddies!

Anything to impress would be in- laws, eh girl?

The Bitch‘s birdie informs, "Deepika will sure give many actresses a run for their money. She is extremely talented and the way she has performed those deadly stunts, it‘s like competition to her co-star Akshay as well. Even Akshay complimented her and was stunned after looking at her performance."

That‘s nothing new. Akshay is well known for encouraging female co-stars and giving them nice little compliments. They are just his small ways of flirting!

In the movie produced by Rohan Sippy, Akshay plays a cook who moves from India to China, something quite similar to his own life story. Buzz is that it has some high funda stunts performed by Akshay Kumar too. One of the sequences is shot on the Great Wall of China. The movie promises action, never seen before in Bollywood.

Well, they all promise that. We will only know when the film releases!

By the way, Bollywood heroines have been turning actions heroines with a vengeance. Bachchan Bahurani Aishwarya Rai learnt sword fighting and horse riding and did a great job in her period film ‘Jodhaa Akbar.‘ Priyanka Chopra learnt the Sikh martial arts Gatka for her movie ‘Drona.‘ Even Jiah Khan is expected to do stunts in her upcoming flick ‘Ghajini‘!

Deepika sure wants to prove to be one up on them all. Isn‘t winning all sorts of challenges her favourite hobby?

It's strictly Bebo time, folks!

Saif on a four month holiday just to be with lady love

Saif Ali Khan is going all the way to prove his great love for Kareena Kapoor. The time spent with his latest Begum is kinda never enough for the Chhote Nawab.

Now Saif has taken a four month break from acting just to be with her. He is currently with her in Australia where she is shooting for ‘Main aur Mrs Khanna.‘

Saif has completed shooting all the projects he had in hand. He‘s not taking any other project so that he can spend more and more time with Kareena dear.

Now-a-days all stars like to take back to back projects to keep themselves fully busy. But Saif is more interested in spending time with his super slim girl friend.

After Saif and Kareena declared their love for each other they have become inseparable. Saif waits for Kareena when she is shooting and accompanies her wherever she goes. Recently when she fainted on the sets of ‘Golmaal Returns‘ in Goa, Saif was present there to care for her.

Aawww......feeling insecure, huh? Maybe he‘s scared she will leave him for someone else. Or perhaps he doesn‘t trust himself either. At this point he doesn‘t want to fall for another girl‘s charms and get tagged as a serial dater!

The Bitch‘s source says, "Saif has other projects in hand too but he has made it clear that he will start shooting only in August because he wants some time off".

Kareena who is presently shooting all across the globe has got the privilege of having Saif as her constant companion. He makes sure that she eats on time, exercises well and is taking great care of her.

And Kareena sure as hell is enjoying all the attention showered on her. She just can‘t believe her luck.

After the ugly break up with Shahid Kapur, she has not only found true love (which madam K was supposedly hunting for) but a care taker and a personal manager as well.

Another man (this time older and wiser) to boss around with! Cool, no?

Saif also doesn‘t mind her passionate past with Shahid Kapur. All he wants to do is to make the current relationship even more passionate. Some internal competition going on, eh?

Now Saif never seemed to so happy when he was with Amrita Singh, Roza and Bipasha. Wonder what makes him so happy with Kareena! Maybe Kareena‘s bossy nature and the fact that she loves to rule, turns him on even more.

Some men just love to play the docile dog in kinky relationships!

Saif has signed Imtiaz Ali‘s next in which he stars with Deepika Padukone and the shoot of the same will only commence from August. After of course, Nawab Sahab had given enough royal treatment to his beloved! Then he will focus on starting his home production, ‘Agent Vinod‘ directed by Sriram Raghavan.

This sure seems like one hell of a great catch, Bebo!

Well, smart girls know everything about making all the right moves!

Latest Stunt: Blast from the past!

Now 'Chandni Chowk to China' revives songs from yesteryears.

‘Chandni Chowk to China‘ which has Akshay and Deepika in the lead will be featuring two famous songs from the 70‘s.

Considering the fate of the movie ‘Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar‘ which tried the same stunt, it doesn‘t look good for this one as well!

There have been other movies like ‘Don‘ and ‘RGV Ki Aag‘ which have also used old songs, but unfortunately to no effect!

This movie is an action-comedy flick and the songs in the question are ‘Bambai Se Aaya Mera Dost‘ and ‘Piya Tu Ab Toh Aaja‘.

Obviously, they will be remixed to an extent where the composer (if alive) would disown it and won‘t take any responsibility of its after effects.

The Bitch‘s birdie says, "Chandni Chowk to China will have both of these songs as item numbers. Bipasha Basu and Katrina Kaif are considered for the songs but since there are rumours doing the rounds that both of them are not ready to work with each other, only one among the two will be considered. ".

Frankly, both these females have quite clearly exposed their two left feet. Probably a half naked Sherlyn Chopra would be a better option!

‘Chandni Chowk to China‘ is still in production phase and is expected to be released by the end of year 2008.

The movie is directed by Nikhil Advani whose last movie ‘Salaam-e-Ishq‘ redefines the word disaster. His first movie ‘Kal Ho Na Ho‘ was a huge hit but it is common knowledge that it was ghost directed by Karan Johar. Basically, this guy has got no credibility whatsoever!

‘Chandni Chowk to China‘ is believed to be inspired from Akshay‘s real life story, as the movie depicts Akshay‘s early days of travelling to China and becoming a cook there.

A biopic in the making, what‘s it going to be next, knighthood?

Welcome sign for Deepika!

Bumps off Katrina from the sequel to 'Welcome'

Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif have made a hit on-screen pair, much to the dismay of beau Salman Khan.

It worked out perfectly for them in last year‘s hit ‘Welcome‘.

The movie almost tripled Nana Patekar‘s rather mediocre salary and actually put Anil Kapoor right back on the map.

Obviously, the makers want to cash in on the success and make a sequel to it. Considering the kind of movies Aneez Bazmee makes, it hardly matters whether it‘s a sequel or not. It‘s still nonsense personified!

The sequel is being planned but the news is Katrina Kaif‘s not keen to be the part of it because she has a few prior commitments and will not be able to manage the dates.

This dame seems to be riding high on her success and doesn‘t look like she‘s coming back to mother earth any time soon. Probably a few slaps from someone special could do the trick!

With angry Sallu around, one doesn‘t need to look far!

If The Bitch‘s sources are to be believed, the role may fall in Deepika Padukone‘s lap. Now Deepika is hot property after her over hyped debut movie ‘Om Shanti Om‘. And the smart lass is making the most of it. The Bitch thinks her beau Ranbir could also do with similar luck though.

The Bitch‘s source says, "Katrina has no dates, so she‘ll not be able to feature in the sequel of the movie. Hence Deepika Padukone is been considered for the role. She is hot after ‘Om Shanti Om‘ and became more famous after her string of affairs. Things are still in the initial process and an announcement will be come from the producers very soon."

When contacted Firoz Nandiadwala neither confirmed nor denied the news. He said, "It‘s too early to talk about it, please."

Said like the overconfident and full of himself producer that he is!

Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone will also be seen together in the upcoming Nikhil Advani flick, ‘Chandni Chowk to China‘.

The Bitch wonders if there is a jealous beau and a worried wife, somewhere around the corner!
