 Jiten, Zeenal and Deep.Taking Bollywood by storm

Time and again, there has always been a whole new and excited crop of actors coming to the fore. Bollywood has seen a lot of actors striving to make their place in this tinsel town.

Many of them had to undergo turbulent trials in pursuit of their passion. Here is one such young actor who is all set to make an impact with his first film.

Deep, the well-trained actor from New York Film Academy, apparently has delivered a towering act and is sure to steal hearts with his stylish, polished and unbelievable performance in Jiten Purohit’s Diwangi Ne Had Kar Di.

Excitement has always been a part of life for this energetic and aspiring actor who excels in action too. Deep brings back fresh memories of Ajay Devgan in his debut film Phool Aur Kante.

Like Dinesh Patel discovered Ajay Devgn as the new action hero in the nineties, it is Jiten Purohit, the generation next film-maker, who dares to introduce another sensational discovery.

Seeking inspiration from Indian filmsExperimenting : Kat Deluna

American popstar Kat Deluna has turned to Bollywood for inspiration and will be seen sporting the traditional Indian outfit of lehenga-choli (skirt and blouse) in her latest video. The Whine Up hitmaker recently filmed the video for her latest single Party’O Clock, which will see her performing a Bollywood style dance.

A recently-released snippet highlights the popstar’s dance with four backing dancers sporting red and blue lehengas. In another scene, she opts for a ruffled red dress and struts in front of a giant clock. There are also images of her stripping down to nothing but a tight bustier, black panties and fishnet stockings.

The 23-year-old had spoken about her love of fashion in a recent interview. “I love fashion and playing around with different looks all the time. Fashion is a form of expression for me. I am interested in having my own clothing line in the near future,” she said.

‘I want to be a trend-setter’

Looking stunning at an event in a short black dress and matching stilletos, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty said she would prefer to be a trend-setter than a trend-follower.

“I would rather be a trend-setter than a trend-follower in life. I have done some of the strangest things in my life and I have just done them because I have believed in them,” said Shilpa.

Shilpa, who is married to millionaire Raj Kundra, revealed that she is a very simple person. “I like to do things that are simple and keep my life as simple as possible,” she said.

All about reliving a bygone era

The songs on the album are sung by the well-known singer from the South — Srinivas, who has won the State Award by the Government of Tamil Nadu twice.

Srinivas has sung more than thousand songs in films. He has also sung in well-known Hindi films like Lagaan, Sapnay, Dil Chahta Hai and many more, with the latest being Rajnikanth’s Robot. “This album has been a labour of love for me.

It echoes my love for ghazals, and the one and only Mehdi Hassan saheb. He taught me, from afar, that music can touch the deepest recesses of one’s soul and liberate him from his humdrum existence. I am forever indebted to such great masters.

The uniqueness of this album is that the arrangements are contemporary and not the traditional harmonium and table,” said Srinivas. 

A R Rahman, who Srinivas quoted as his mentor, launched the album. Rahman is said to have overlooked the making of the album.

Adarsh Gupta, Head of Music Saregama India Ltd said, “Saregama has had a long-standing presence in the ghazal genre with renditions from the biggest names of the past. We believe this genre is in urgent need of revival and hence we constantly look for new offerings in this space.”

A true ‘idol’ indeed...  New Step : Sreeram

Idian Idol 5 winner Sreeram Chandra will now be seen performing a special song in the Indian versions of the much-awaited Hollywood magnum opus The Chronicles of Narnia — The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. To be recorded in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, the song will feature with the end credits of the respective vernacular versions of the upcoming 3D fantasy-adventure film.

The song Rehnuma, composed by Harpreet, is also a part of Sreeram’s first album released by Sony Music after his winning the prestigious title in August this year. “Indian Idol was a dream come true and now Rehnuma in Narnia 3 is like magic unfolding right in front of my eyes. I am delighted, honoured and humbled to have this opportunity,” said an ecstatic Sreeram.

The Hyderabad-based professional singer had won the hearts of millions during the Indian Idol contest with his melodious voice. The film, which will release in India on December 3, a week ahead of its US release, will also have a special music video featuring Sreeram.

This association is part of a unique initiative by the producers of the film Twentieth Century Fox, where a special song for the film is being recorded by several international artists for their respective country markets around the world.

“Sreeram’s fresh, youthful voice is a perfect match to the exciting and thrilling Narnia experience. It is undoubtedly a hit song,” said Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios India.
