Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra who recently released the video of her first music single, 'In My City', said she wanted the world to see what Bollywood is.

"I wanted to give it an Indian flavour in terms of dancing. I wanted the world to see what Bollywood is all about," Priyanka told reporters at the unveiling of the single 'In My City' here.

"I wanted that the identity of the song should be Indian. I am very India-proud. When people see my video, they must feel that Bollywood is like this," she said.

Talking about her style, she said it's a fusion and amalgamation which will be enjoyed in west and India.

"I showed the video to my dad first. He is not well and has been in the hospital for a while now. He really liked it, specially the namaste which I do," she said.

Kamal to move SC over Vishwaroopam ban

Kamal Haasan to move SC over Vishwaroopam ban

Actor and director Kamal Haasan will approach the Supreme Court over the ban on his movie 'Vishwaroopam' in Tamil Nadu. The Madras High Court had on Wednesday banned the screening of the film in the state till February 6. The court stayed the release of the film even as petrol bombs were hurled at two theatres that were to screen the film.

Meanwhile, Haasan has agreed to delete some scenes from the film, caving into pressure building on him from various groups that claimed the Tamil-Hindi bilingual about international terrorism hurt the sentiments of Muslims.

Kamal Haasan to move SC over Vishwaroopam ban

Earlier in the day, Haasan made an emotional pitch ahead of the Madras High Court's final decision on the release of his film. "I have explored all possibilities with my Muslim brothers. Now it's up to the court to decide. I only request to the government that they maintain law and order is in place, that nothing untoward happens to my Muslim fans," he told reporters.

He said he and the leaders of the groups that objected to his film agreed to sort the issue amicably. "I have been given a list of scenes; I don't want it to be marred by someone's confusion. I have agreed for certain cuts," he said. "My emotional family has reached out to me, I promise anything for my brothers," he said.

The Madras High Court's order staying the release of the film came after the Tamil Nadu government challenged the court's interim order on Tuesday of lifting the stay on Haasan's 'Vishwaroopam'.

The film was banned in the state on the insistence of some Muslim organisations which felt that it depicted the community in poor light. But Kamal Haasan got a late night relief from the Madras High Court on Tuesday after the court decided to put in abeyance the prohibitory orders issued by the Tamil Nadu government to delay the film's release. However, the order has now been challenged by the state government.

When Nayanthara declined Shahrukh khan’s film

When Nayanthara declined Shahrukh khan’s film

Heard this? The latest buzz to hit the tinsel town is that recently a top director from Bollywood Rohit Shetty approached Nayanthara for an item number in Shahrukh Khan's film Chennai Express. Sources say that the director wanted to cast a top heroine from south and as such approached Nayanthara to do an item song in the romantic comedy. But the actress has turned down the offer.

Nayanathara, who has a good market across South India (Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam), apparently did not evince interest in the Bollywood offer. It seems that the sexy siren does not want to make her Bollywood debut with an item song and as such has politely turned down the offer.

Chennai Express is about a man's journey from Mumbai to Rameshwaram and what happens along the way. The film, which is produced by Gauri Khan, has Deepika Padukone playing the female lead role. And this is the second time Shahrukh Khan is sharing screen space with Deepika Padukone after the 2007 blockbuster Om Shanti Om.

Acting is a brutal profession: Bipasha Basu

Acting is a brutal profession: Bipasha Basu

After spending more than a decade in the industry, Bipasha Basu feels that an actor's life is not easy.

Bipasha, 34, who started her career with a negative character in 2001 hit 'Ajnabee', says she now wants to do challenging roles.

"It is true that hunger and fierceness to do some good work is little more than before in my life. Whatever I am going to do would be an honest reflection of my true self; my performance won't be corrupt.

"Acting is a brutal profession but I would maintain my own dignity and pride. An actor's life is never easy. It is always a Friday that decides how she is going to do in months to come," Bipasha told .

Bipasha was last seen in Vikram Bhatt's 'Raaz'. Her evil character in the film was received well and opened doors for many new projects. But Bipasha says she is not on a signing spree after the success of the film.

"For the last seven years I have been doing three films at maximum in a year. It is going to be the same in future as well. I want to do good work. Also, the kind of balance that I have struck in my life is for the keeps," she says.

Bipasha feels that she performs better when she steps out of her comfort zone.

"I have come to realise that whenever I step into unsafe zones, I perform better. The kind of films that I have done in the recent past or am doing now are some risky steps.

"These kind of roles can leave a very strong image about you. However, this is a risk worth taking. Also, I am sure audience too has matured enough to understand the difference between reel and real life."

Bipasha will be seen next in Vikram's another 3D film 'Creature' and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer 'Aatma'.
