The ‘Dhoom’ franchise have always presented their ladies in racy and super glamorous avatar. Be it Esha Deol in ‘Dhoom’ or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Bipasha Basu in ‘Dhoom 2’, these hit flicks left the cine goers asking for more with all of them looking super hot in their roles.
With ‘Dhoom 3’ in the making, the makers did not want to settle in for less. So, in came the Autralian import, Tabrett Bethell, who is a popular and well known Australian TV actress. She is best known for portraying the character Cara in the television series Legend of the Seeker. In her earlier days Bethell has worked as a fashion model since she was 16. Tabrett Bethell was also a cheerleader for the National Rugby League (NRL).
This hottie will be seen romancing Aamir Khan in ‘Dhoom 3’. The movie has Aamir play the villain with Katrina Kaif, too, displaying greyer shades in her character.
Welcoming Bethell, Uday Chopra tweeted:
“Please welcome the lovely @TabrettBethell who joins the cast of Dhoom 3 today.”
Jiah Khan, who made a sensational debut in Bollywood with ‘Nishabd’, has been going through a lull phase of her career. However, recently, there was quite a buzz about the actress signing a three-film deal and been finalized for a lead in an erotic period drama, titled ‘Maharani’.
The sources claimed that the film is set in the 17th century and is based on secret diaries handed over to director Madhureeta Anand by the award winning author and historian, William Dalrymple. Reports also added that a veteran actress will be cast in a negative role in the film.
However, Jiah aka Nafisa Khan, rubbished the claims with her tweet which read:
“So apparently im in a film called maharani some erotic thriller..umm news to me! Don’t knw anything abt it lol! Where do they get this from?”
Minissha Lamba made her entry into Bollywood with a coy girl-next-door image in films like ‘Yahan’ and ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’. Then, she tried an image makeover with a bikini act in ‘Kidnap’ and later a hot photshoot in two piece for ‘Maxim’.
Since then, Minissha’s career has been going great guns. She also went de-glam for the 2010 film Well Done Abba. Then she came into news for being the grand marshal of India’s Independence Day parade in Los Angeles.
Once again, Minissha strikes a sultry pose for the cover of Maxim’s first ever Sex & Relationships issue. The actress is seen draped in just a length of slinky satin black fabric to keep her modest.

The much hyped ‘Jism 2’ failed to make a mark at the box-office and the film’s failure is being attributed to Sunny’s not-so-good acting apart from an average script. Not the one to repeat her mistakes, the pronstar-turned-actress has decided to work on her weak points to give an improved performance in her next venture’ Ragini MMS 2’.
Sunny Leone has hired not one or two, but three tutors to teach her. She is learning Bollywood dance from dancer Shabina Khan and has two other tutors to brush up her Hindi speaking skills.
Apart from this, Leone made it a point to watch Ekta Kapoor’s original ‘Ragini MMS’ and admitted that she got really scared by it.
Sunny’s tweets confirm these reports. On Monday, she tweeted, “It’s Monday and another week begins. This week I’m adding in Hindi lessons and watching a Hindi/Bollywood movies on top of my dance classes.”
Sunny also declared that she currently has only one Bollywood project in hand and that is the sequel to Ragini MMS. She tweeted: “Any reports of me signing a film is not true!!!! you will always hear it from me first!!”
With ‘Raaz 3’ coming from the Bhatt camp, the viewers do expect loads of hotness quotient in the film. The teasers show Bipasha Basu, the main protagonist of the film, oozing a lot of oomph and appeal.
Bipasha has proved her dancing mettle in quite a few item numbers like ‘Lucky Boy’ in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, ‘Peeke Tunn’ in ‘Players’, ‘Bipasha’ in ‘Jodi Breakers’ and many more. Now, she gets to groove on yet another item numer ‘Kya Raaz Hai’ in her forthcoming ‘Raaz 3’.
The number has been crooned by Shreya Ghosal and Zubeen and the music has been composed by Jeet Gannguli. The stills of the song show Bips in ultra glam look. ‘Raaz 3’ has been directed by Vikram Bhatt and also stars Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta.
Well, the Bhatts believe strongly in their sequels. While their ‘Jism 2’ is showing great prospects in its first week at box-office and ‘Raaz 3’ ready to hit the screens, the Bhatts have already hinted at their intention of making the third sequel of ‘Jism’.
‘Jism’ had Bipasha Basu playing the seductress and was replaced by Sunny Leone in its sequel. However, Pooja Bhatt has hinted at the fact that ‘Jism 3’ may cast Nathalia Kaur in the lead. Nathalia has already made her debut in Bollywood with RGV’s ‘Department’. Moreover, Pooja Bhatt has also revealed that Nathalia was the mystery girl (and not Sunny Leone) under the wet sheet in the first poster of ‘Jism 2’. Pooja Bhatt also does not rule out the probability that Jism 3 will have not one but two actresses.
“When it was revealed that it was Nathalia who shot for the poster, Mahesh Bhatt saab texted me about casting her in the next installment. You just can’t ignore his suggestions,” Pooja Bhatt says adding that Sunny may or may not feature in ‘Jism 3’.
“It is too early to tell. When I was making the second film, everyone asked if Bipasha would be in it and now everyone is asking if Sunny will be in the next. The most exciting thing for me is to create a new fantasy,” she said.
Be it a fun Sunday with bubbly Anushka Sharma on FHM, or sexy Deepika Padukone unveiling her dark side on GQ, or Shriya Saran spreading her sexy wings for Maxim-the Bollywood beauties are sure to keep you asking for more as they scorch the covers of the August issues of these glossy magazines.
The Maxim has the south siren Shriya attired in a skimpy black outfit posing seductively. While Anushka gives a vibrant and colourful cover on FHM exposing her toned midriff confidently, Deepika Padukone appears on GQ in an all black body hugging suit with killer looks in her eyes.

Kangana Ranaut has stepped into the role of a director with a short untitled film which has been shot in Los Angeles and revolves around the subject of a dog and a four year old boy. The story of the film has been written in collaboration with an Australian writer and has an all-American cast and crew.
Kangana underwent a lot of preparation for the best outcome. She not only held a number of workshops but also went through the subject of child psychology to help connect with the character of the kid in the film. She reveals, “It took six months of thorough groundwork. I was advised not to work with kids and animals, but my script demanded it. Kaden (the boy) is very little. We had to place hidden cameras, play games, and pretend to be aliens and trees in order to get him in the frame (laughs)! But it was fun, he is adorable. The dog was well-trained and not difficult to work with.”
Kangana feels that acting and directing both have appealed to her equally and she would not be able to point out which of the fields appeals her more. “This is like asking me to choose between apples and oranges… I love them both in a unique way…. But working with an international cast and crew was an amazing experience,” she says
Ageing has definitely worked wonders for Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu who has never looked physically so fit and in perfect shape, mentally so strong and confident and morally on a high.
Bips has always known to be a fitness feak and in 2010, she also released her fitness DVD. Now, she has done a photo shoot for her fitness calendar attired in activewear, ranging from vests, sports bras to hoodies and ultra-shorts.
Bipasha believes in going slow and right. She consults her dietician Rujuta Diwekar (the lady behind Kareena Kapoor’s size zero) and her nutritionist for the right diet. She believes in the mantra “Love Yourself” for that extra glow and hits the gym and yoga for those perfect curves. She also believes in investing in the perfect and the fittest clothes that would help in her exercises.
Check out Bipasha Basu in the best of her shape for her fitness calendar..
We must admit here that Vishesh Films give us the best curves of the industry. If Sunny Leone’s curves in the teasers and posters of forthcoming ‘Jism 2’ were not enough, gear up for yet another sequel from Bhatts with Bipasha Basu in the best of her shapes. The makers have released the first look poster of ‘Raaz 3’ which is scary and seductive at the same time.
The poster shows a perfectly toned Bipasha Basu with spooky hands around her and Emraan Hashmi with a solemn gaze in the background. Emraan’s red eyes, Bipasha’s black lingerie and the hands of the devil wrapped around her curves all add up tp create just the right mix of seduction and horror. The one liner in the poster reads:
When desires turn evil….
The trailer of the film will be released with ‘Jism 2’. The movie has Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta in double roles. The movie will release in 3D as well as in 2D on September 7.
Yes!! You have read it right….. Sherlyn Chopra(D grade Bollywood actress), who managed to grab a space in the gossip columns with her forgettable stripping stunts and even more forgettable raunchy acts in some B-grade films has managed to paint the gossip columns red once again by being the yet-to-be Playboy cover page model.
However, what surprised everyone alike was when the magazine introduced Sherlyn as ‘Bollywood Legend’. The write up reads:
“Coming soon to Playboy Magazine and Playboy.com, a historic nude pictorial of Bollywood sensation Sherlyn Chopra, the first Indian woman to appear in the magazine. Sherlyn Chopra is known for her acting and modelling career as she appeared in various Bollywood movies and was a guest on the hit reality tv show Big Boss (Season 3). Don’t miss the photos that have everyone in South Asia talking.”
The magazine has even referred to Sherlyn as ‘Bollywood Goddess Sherlyn Chopra’ in the intro.
Rumors were also rife that Sherlyn slept with the Playboy boss Hugh Hefner to bag in this opportunity, but Sherlyn vehemently denies anything as such and says, “I did not sleep with Mr Hefner. No one at the (Playboy) mansion has till date made an indecent proposal to me. I love my naked skin. Felt quite comfortable displaying my nakedness … that is all.”
Made under the direction of Rakesh Ranjan Kumar and with Imran Zahid in the lead role, forthcoming ‘Marksheet’ will see the launch of yet another foreign hottie in the tinsel town. Talking about Jeddah born and London bred Wardah Khan, the well-known model has bagged in a pivotal role in this flick which is based on the drawbacks on our current education system.
Wardah plays a girl who comes to India from New York and her role has a lot of sensuous appeal in it. Talking about her role in the project, Wardah says, “I play a girl who has come to India from New York. It’s a role I can relate to. My character is a very sensual woman.”
Wardah has her eyes set on playing longer innings in Bollywood for which she plans to improve her Hindi and shift base to Mumbai. “I always wanted to be an actress and be a part of Bollywood. Modelling was just the beginning of it. It is very tough to get into the film industry. I am glad I have made it finally,” she says.
