Queen of Hearts….

They are a SMART and RAVISHING lot. And everyone—from eight to eighty—can’t stop RAVING about their beauty and poise. DELVE deeper, and you find they are beauties with a MIND of their own. It is not easy being Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma or even Sonakshi Sinha in B-town: the spotlight is constantly ZOOMING in on their lives. A lot of hard work and grooming go into being an actress that counts and all of these damsels have taken Bollywood by storm.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…..

Deepa lays her BETS on Anushka when she says that the actress “has a good personality and great acting skills”. Quiz her further and she adds, Anushka is close to achieving the same stature as Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra. “She did such a good job in ‘Band Baja Baraat’ and I am also looking forward to her latest flick ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’,” says Deepa with stars in her eyes. Move on to Avinash Kaur, a BTech student, and she has the same words of praise for this former model and Yash Raj Films favourite: “Anushka is a good actress and a consistent performer. I liked her in ‘Band Baja Baraat’—where she looked so pretty as a Punjabi girl–and ‘Badmash Company’.”

But then, Deepika too has a fair share of loyalists. Shivam, a XIIth standard student, only BOTHERS himself with Deepika’s films. “I haven’t seen the movies of the rest of the lot. But Deepika looked stunning in ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’, ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Love Aaj kal’.” Pooja, a student of Ryan International, is quite FASCINATED by Deepika’s “height and dusky colour—I just love it”, she says. The rest, she feels, “are dumb. Sonakshi is fat. Perhaps, Anushka comes a close second to Deepika.” Her best words are for Deepika in films like ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’.

But Gajinder Singh, a B.Sc student, believes there is none to MATCH Sonakshi. “She is a great actress and has all the skills to make it to the top. I liked her especially in ‘Dabangg’ and can’t forget her role.”

For sure, these actresses have the ‘it’ factor. In the make-believe world, they are well and truly the Queen of Hearts. And given their huge fan following, little wonder these divas have given many a box office hit!


Bollywood Beauties….

Deepika Padukone: The daughter of badminton ace Prakash Padukone, has had a string of successful films under her belt. Be it her debut Bollywood film ‘Om Shant Om’ or ‘Love Aaj kal’ with Saif Ali Khan, Deepika has made her mark as much for her looks and height as for her acting skills, poise and charm.

Anushka Sharma: She is the girl to watch out for, after Kareena and Katrina. The ‘Band Baja Barat’ girl had a dream debut with Sharukh Khan no less in ‘Rab Ne Bana de Jodi’. Since then, she has moved from strength to strength with a hit like ‘Band Baja Baraat’ as her crowning glory. Now that ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ has hit the theatres, Anushka, it seems, is truly on a roll.

Sonakshi Sinha: Ever since she came into the spotlight with Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’, there was no looking back for this vivacious actress. Shotgun Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter shows great promise and what with her filmi background, is bound to make it big.

Sonam Kapoor: Another star kid, the daughter of Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, first made heads turn with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’.  Since then, this fashionista’s career has been mostly on the upswing. With ‘Delhi-6, ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ and ‘Aisha’, her foothold in filmtown seems firm.
