Deepika Padukone wish to launch her own website

deepika padukone
Deepika Padukone has been declared the most searched celebrity on Yahoo! India. She beat contemporaries like Katrina, Bipasha and Kareena to make it to the most-searched celebrity list of 2008.

The actress also plans to launch her own website soon.

She shares her plans, "I am in the process of putting my website together. I think it's a great medium to reach out to people across the world and keep them updated about my work.

I will use the website to chat with my fans." At the moment, she is in the process of getting her domain name, "We are working out a domain name since my actual name is already being used by some other site."

About being the most searched celebrity she says, "It's an amazing feeling. Even though it isn't something that's ground breaking, it goes to show the love the fans have for me.

I think the fact that people want to read about me and know about my work goes to show the love they have for me."

A late user of the internet, Deepika prefers other modes of communication, "I prefer picking up the phone and talking to the person rather than sending a text message.

It's more simple and takes less time. I use the internet to keep in touch with my family abroad and also checking fan mail. In fact, I reply to each and every mail they send."

Webbed 10

Have you googled yourself ?
No, never felt the need to. Why would I want to read about myself ?

The first time you used the internet...
It was quite late in life. We got a computer home but that too came in our lives pretty late.

Are you on Facebook?
No, neither do I plan to join any such online community. I prefer sending personal mails rather than joining groups.

Do you know the number of pages dedicated to you?
No, I haven't bothered checking that out

How often do you use the Internet?
I carry my laptop with me when I travel outdoors and I strictly use it to keep in touch with family.

Did you ever stumble upon porn while surfing?
Thank god, no!

Three websites you frequent?
There aren't any as such, I mostly stick to sending emails

Have you checked your videos on You Tube?
I am aware of You Tube but am quite scared to check my videos on the site. I think it's a scare for us actors to see random videos of ourselves.

Have you ever been sent spam mail?
Yes, I think so.

Would you call yourself a net addict?
No, I can survive without the internet.

Akshay and Deepika nominated for Asian Film Awards

Bollywood heart-throbs Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone have been nominated for the Best Actor and Best Actress category at the prestigious third Asian Film Awards which were announced here today.
While Akshay was nominated for his action cum comic-caper 'Singh is Kinng', Deepika was nominated for her double role in 'Chandani Chowk to China', the official website said.

'Singh is Kinng' unfolds the story a simple village boy from Punjab who goes all the way to Australia to bring back fellow villagers who have now turned notorious gangsters in a foreign country.

Deepika plays the role of twin sisters in her latest movie 'Chandani Chowk to China'. Her characters in the film have both negative and positive shades. The story revolves around an Indian cook who travels all the way to China in search of his true destiny.

The contenders in the Best Actor's category include China's Ge You for 'If You Are the One', South Korea's Ha Jung-Woo for 'The Chaser and Japanese actors Kenichi Matsuyama for Detroit Metal City' and Masahiro Motoki for 'Departures' and South Korea's Song Kang Ho for 'The Good, The Bad, The Weird'.

Deepika was nominated along with Chinese actresses Zhao Wei for 'The Painted Skin', Zhou Xun for 'The Equation of Love and Death', Jiang Wenli for 'And the Spring Comes' and Japan's Eri Fukatsu for 'The Magic Hour' and Sayuri Yoshinaga for 'Kabei-Our Mother'.

Former bond-girl and the star of "Crouching Tiger" Michelle Yeoh will head the 13-member jury which includes Chairman of Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, Peggy Chiao among others.

Saif and Deepika pair up for Love Aaj Kal


Saif Ali Khan and Imtiaz Ali are smiling these days. After tearing their hair out to come up with a title for Saif’s home production co-starring Deepika Padukone, they have finally come up with a title that suits the film. It’s Love Aaj Kal.

Our source close to Saif said, “Imtiaz and Saif couldn’t arrive at a decision as far as naming the film was concerned. So they decided to go ahead with their shooting and brainstorm about the film’s name later.

Eventually they both were so hassled that Saif thought of holding a contest inviting the audience to suggest a suitable name for their film.”

After the film’s shooting, Imtiaz and Saif had to eventually sit down for a brainstorming session. The source added, “The duo came up with different names.

After a lot of deliberation and thought, Imtiaz decided to call the film, Aaj Aur Kal, but was still apprehensive about it. Imtiaz wanted to change the title from Aaj Aur Kal to Aaj Kal.

But Saif disagreed with him saying that he wanted a title that would instantly connect with the audience, like Jab We Met. They then decided on Love Aaj Kal.”

Though Imtiaz remained unavailable for comment, a source close to the director confirmed the news and said, “Yes Imtiaz has decided to call the film Love Aaj Kal.

Deepika inspired by Sushmita

Deepika Padukone is a stylish girl. So it’s only fair to talk to her about fashion. And though many source inspiration from her, she is a fan of Deepika Padukone

I look up to Sushmita Sen when it comes to style,” she confesses. About some ‘haute’ tips, she tells us, “There are some things that will never go out of style.

Anything in black, saris and salwar kameezes, denims are all here to stay...” Revealing the secret of her sexy bod, Deepika says, “Fortunately being a sports person I never put on weight. But seriously I feel fitness is very important and it's important to be in shape.” Now is this something Sush can learn from this newbie?

Deepika twin sister separated in Fair CC2C

Deepika twin sister separated in Fair CC2C
Deepika twin sister separated in Fair CC2C
If you are looking for intellectual stimulation at the movies, watch Clint Eastwood’s “Changeling” or wait for “Slumdog Millionaire” — “Chandni Chowk to China” is definitely not what you are looking for.

It’s the first big release of the year, is produced by a big Hollywood studio looking to enter the Indian market and has one of India’s most bankable stars. But it also has a lot of Bollywood “formula”.

Now whether you like this film or not depends on whether you like the “formula”. Do you like the twins separating-at-birth-and-meeting-20-years-later formula? Or perhaps the I-will-avenge-my-father’s-death formula? Take your pick because “Chandni Chowk to China” has taken each and every cliché from Hindi cinema of the 70s and 80s and repackaged it.

Akshay Kumar plays Sidhu, a simpleton cook in Delhi’s famed Chandni Chowk, who fumbles his way through life and is waiting for the stroke of luck that will change his life. Through a chance encounter possible only in Hindi cinema, he meets two natives of China. They are convinced Sidhu is the reincarnation of the ancient warrior Liu Sheng, who will rescue them from the clutches of evil villain Hojo.

Somewhere along the way we also learn of Inspector Chang, whose family was separated because of Hojo. Chang’s twin daughters, Sakhi and Suzie (played by Deepika Padukone) are separated while he loses his memory.

To attempt to explain the story beyond this point is difficult, because the plot gets too convoluted and loses itself at many places. Except for the 20 minutes in the second half, where Chang is training Akshay in the art of kung fu, the rest of the movie is one chaotic scene.

But “Chandni Chowk to China” is unabashed about this chaos. It seems to be saying — this is how we like our movies and this is how we will make them. Who cares about a coherent plot line when you have Akshay Kumar performing stunts and singing mid-air with Deepika Padukone?

Like it or not, this is Bollywood formula at its best or worst, whichever way you look at it.

Deepika replaces Katrina as Akki's favourite

"There was someone endorsing it before me and someone will step in after me…" That was the bold Katrina Kaif responding to questions about her replacing Aishwarya Rai as the brand ambassador for Nakshatra Jewellery.

DON'T MISS: Katrina shows who's number one!

As it seems, Katrina does indeed have some tough competition. Deepika Padukone, widely considered as the 'next big thing' is slowly but steadily working towards getting the 'next' out of the much-abused phrase.

Mid Day reports that the OSO star has just replaced Katrina Kaif as Akshay Kumar's favourite heroine.

Though the paper does not quote any source, the report suggests that the Khiladi Kumar is keen on moving beyond Katrina Kaif.

"AK believes in changing his leading ladies after a point. Even though the Akki-Katrina jodi is the hottest right nowm the actor is thinking ahead and is replacing her with a younger, fresher face like Deepika Padukone," the paper reads.

It seems after Chandni Chowk to China, the two stars will also act together in Sajid Khan's next House Full. What's more, apparently Akki is also in talks for another big banner film where he'd like to star opposite Deepika and not Katrina.

Akshay, Deepika walk the red carpet in London

Indian film stars are the latest hot steppers at the red carpets around the world. A day after Anil Kapoor and AR Rahman won accolades for Slumdog Millionaire at the Golden Globe Awards, the cast of Chandni Chowk to China were strutting their stuff in London's Leicester Square.

And a special appearance by Amitabh Bachchan added glamour to the fourth overseas premiere of the film, which releases on January 16.

“I have really enjoyed myself. I have spent an hour with my fans, signing autographs. I am here because of my fans,” Akshay said.

While actor Roger Yuan who plays Chiang in the film said, “It was a brilliant experience. I loved working with Akshay, Nikhil and Deepika.”

For leading lady, Deepika Padukone, who was dressed in a Tarun Tahiliani ensemble, the premiere at Leicester Square was extra special. Her first film Om Shanti Om was also premiered at the same theatre back in 2007.

“This theatre is lucky. London is lucky! Hopefully it will be once again,” an excited Deepika said.

Chandni Chowk to China marks Warner Brothers’ first foray into Hindi films. And it seems that even before the film's release, there is talk about a sequel.

Director Nikhil Advani said, “It is upto Warner Bros. Am sure they would like us to make a sequel. We need to work out the logistics.”

The film is breaking records even before its release. It is all set to have the biggest opening in the US and Canada for a Hindi film – the film will be playing on over 125 screens. Even in the UK, it will open in 80 theatres, setting a new record for a Bollywood film.

CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA primere2Warner Bros' first Bollywood production 'Chandni Chowk to China' makes the largest-ever opening of any Bollywood film in US and Canada Jan 16 with its release on more than 125 screens in over 50 markets.

In addition, the Akshay Kumar Deepika starrer will also be released in 40 international markets, opening day-and-date with North America in 25 markets, according to Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. The other markets will open the film in the weeks ahead.

The first-ever Bollywood kung fu comedy, 'Chandni Chowk to China' follows one man's passage from simple cook to kung fu fighter, on a thrilling, madcap journey from the by-lanes of Chandni Chowk in Delhi to the grandeur of the Great Wall of China and beyond.

At a press conference in New York Thursday to mark the premiere of the film in the US, Akshay Kumar described 'Chandni Chowk...' as a "pure Bollywood story."

"If you are fans of Manmohan Desai, this is that kind of a film," he said. "I am anxiously waiting to go back to India and show the film to my son. My grandmother is also waiting to see the film. So it's a film for all ages."

Akshay was joined at the press conference by his 22-year old co-star Deepika Padukone and director Nikhil Advani.

Padukone plays a double role in the film - Sakhi, an Indian woman, and Meow Meow, a Chinese woman, who is also a martial arts expert.

Padukone spent six months training in martial arts. "It was a tough experience, but when Nikhil described the character to me I knew I had to learn martial arts," she said.

Akshay was all praise for the young co star. "If you watch how she kicks in the film, it's hard to believe that she learnt martial arts just a few months ago," he said.

"I'm really lucky to have worked with Akshay," Padukone said. "I grew up watching his films."

Deepika Padukone Like To Experiment

Bollywood's dusky beauty Deepika Padukone's complexion has been lightened by three shades to suit her Chinese look in the film "Chandni Chowk To China", says stylist Mallika Bhat.

"Deepika has a dusky skin tone. In 'Chandni Chowk To China', she plays two different roles - one with a Chinese look and the other with an Indian look. We worked on her complexion for both the looks," Bhat told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

"For the Chinese look we gave her a three shades lighter complexion than her original. Then we gave it a yellowish tinge that is typical with Chinese people and teamed it with sharp and prominent make-up.

"For the Indian look, we gave her a shade darker in terms of complexion, used her normal hair and gave slightly over-the-top make-up but nothing extraordinary," she added.

Bhat, who is responsible for Deepika's Chinese eyes and poker-straight fringed hair in the film, says working on the actress' look was difficult, as she does not fit the bill of a Chinese girl easily.

"It was a very challenging task. Director Nikhil Advani had briefed me very specifically about the look that he wanted Deepika to flaunt in the film. But Deepika was not an easy girl for it.

"She has a dusky complexion, large, almond-shaped eyes and long eyelashes that are totally opposite to what Chinese women look like. So I had to kind of work against nature to get the right look for her," explained Bhat.

A lot of research went behind Deepika's Chinese look in the film.

Most often in Bollywood, stylists settle for cosmetic tapes at the end of each eye to give the Chinese look to actors, but Bhat says it wasn't a feasible option because Deepika's doctors had advised her against their use.

"Cosmetic tapes would have been very painful for Deepika. She would have to keep them on for the 10-12 hours of shooting. It is one of the easiest ways to get that Chinese look, but it was not feasible and totally out of question to expect Deepika to wear it for 60-70 days of shooting," said Bhat.

To overcome this, Bhat created the look using eyeliner.

"I gave her a slightly slanted and curvy eyeliner to make her eyes look narrow. We gave her light shade contact lenses besides working upon her eyelashes also."

To enhance the look, Deepika was made to wear a specially cut wig with "poker straight and rebonded hair".

"Indians have thick hair, but in China they have fine hair; so that aspect also had to be kept in mind. I got the wig cut by celebrity hair stylist Ryan D'Rozario," said Bhat.

The 23-year-old actress also sports long fringes as a result of the stylist's research on Chinese women. She revealed that nearly 80 percent of youth there flaunted fringes or horizontal bangs. "It gives the person a very Oriental look," she said.

According to Bhat, it took her just four hours to decide upon Deepika's final look along with her team. After that, it took her team just half an hour to do up the Chinese look every time it was required.

Though Bhat says she isn't confident that she has got the look "bang on", she admits to having "managed to make Deepika look at least half-Chinese".

Releasing Jan 16, "Chandni Chowk To China" also stars superstar Akshay Kumar in the lead. The action-adventure-comedy is about an Indian cook who goes to China and has many adventures. Deepika plays Akshay's love interest in the film.

Bollywood Gossips
Our protagonist Sidhu (Akshay Kumar) is the lowest on the totem pole, cutting vegetables at a roadside food stall in Chandni Chowk in Delhi. He longs to escape his dreary existence and looks for shortcuts- with astrologers, tarot readers and fake fakirs - believing anything except himself, despite his father figure Dada’‘s (Mithun Chakraborty) best efforts. His redeeming moment arrives when two strangers from China claim him as a reincarnation of a war hero in the past and takes him to China. Sidhu now dreams of wine, women, and a princely existence in foreign lands. Thanks to the devious translator, a conman by the name Chopstick (Ranvir Shorey), little does he know that he is being taken to the Promised Land to rid the Chinese village of the vicious smuggler Hojo (Gordon Liu)!
