The news about Sonali Bendre being diagnosed with cancer came as a bolt from the blue to me. For an ardent follower of Bollywood since early years like me, it was a major shock, coming just months after the heartbreaking news of Sridevi’s demise. This led me to think about some of our other favourite Bollywood actresses of the 1990s and see where they are and what are they up to these days.
You might have seen them creeping around our beautiful heroines, but that is limited to the screen. The villains of Bollywood are, in fact, blessed with wives that can double as heroines and share the screen space with them any day – that is how gorgeous they are. They’d make you spare a double look, but we suggest you don’t unless you want to end up surrounded by the mister and his gang armed with hockey sticks if not guns.
One of the greatest achievements is when one reaches the top having started from the bottom. The rule isn’t different for the movie industry either. Its easy to get that break if you have a family member in the industry; the struggle, otherwise, gets real and later makes for some of the most surprising and awe-inspiring memories . Here are 10 famous Bollywood actors who you love and adore now, but might have missed them in a blink when they appeared in i nconsequential during their early days in the industry.
I had yet to reach teenage, when the song “Ankhon mein Tera hi chehra” hit the music channels. Won’t be an exaggeration if I said, the super cute boy at the receiving end of unrequited love peddled me into puberty. The boy grew up to be one hell of a babe in Ishq Vishq, and I couldn’t take my eyes off him in Padmaavat. What’s interesting is, the star is not just a good looking man, but a hopeless romantic too, and he, accompanied by his gorgeous wife Mira Rajput, keeps giving us some major relationship goals. For instance, here are 10 lovey-dovey moments of Shahid-Mira that evoke romanticism. Image source: Instagram, Facebook
Someone very wise once said, all that glitters, is not gold. True to every syllable, we say, as far as Bollywood is concerned. All the glamour and glitz you see shining on the glossy magazines, in most cases, are a sham – a sham used to cover up the dullness and gloom beneath.
Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha, who have been seeing each other since five now, make for a perfect union between Bollywood’s two of the most promising actors of this generation.
You have heard of chowks and streets being named after great leaders all the time. But would you think our beloved Bollywood stars are any less of social reformers or leaders? Hell nooooooo!!!
In the name of cuteness, are you only getting Taimur Ali Khan and Misha Kapoor’s clicks served every morning via social media? We know, even though Rasgullas are the sweetest, after a certain time our heart craves change – some bundi ke laddu or kaju katli, maybe? To give a fresh change in your daily dose of cuteness – her are a bundle of adorable babies, kids of your favorite television star. Pretty sure, you didn’t even know some of them had kids.
‘No country for women’ they say; and looking at the statistics one has to agree. Whichever political party be in power, whichever community be around, women in India have always been vulnerable. Chances of any improvement in the situation appears to turn slimmer by the day.
Bollywood is a risky place for the trade of hearts, and the ever increasing appalling number of broken hasn’t done anything to prove us wrong.
If one thing Bollywood knows, it is to create drama out of nothing and everything. With our extra emotional dialogues, extra vibrant clothes, extra dose of song and dance we have created many epic moments.
Playboy is maybe the most controversial magazine ever published, racking up scandal after scandal since Hugh Hefner founded it in 1953. It was not the brainchild of editor-in-chief Hefner, but he agreed to the move that would change Playboy forever.
When we think of Bollywood, we inadvertently think of money. Money the movie makers make, money the stars get paid, money the movies earn.
Obviously when Leonardo DiCaprio throws a party in Saint-Tropez, leggy models and famous friends fly in from all over the world to show their support. On Wednesday, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation threw its second annual gala at the Domaine Bertaud Belieu vineyard, in France. For the occasion, guests including Orlando Bloom, Mario Cotillard, the entire Stallone family, and DiCaprio's new girlfriend — in a lilac Roberto Cavalli gown — dressed to impress.
