It seems our Bollywood stars are bidding adieu to their filmdom and embracing Hollywood for a change. The bigshots in Bollywood cinema are trying to be global with their acting prowess and even Hollywood is welcoming them with open arms. Let’s see who all are bitten by the Hollywood bug and who all got successful:
Tabu: The classic and out-of-the-box talent of Tabu did not go unnoticed by the people in West. Her performance in Namesake was highly praiseworthy and noteworthy. Well, she has not travelled all these miles just for the sake of it. The siren deserves the name and fame.
Celina Jaitly: Sizzling and sassy, Celina is flying on seventh heaven with her new and interesting venture. If you are thinking it’s a movie on her way, you have got it wrong. She has begun being a brand ambassador for ‘Proactive’, an international skin and beauty care brand.
Mallika Sherawat: Ooh! This beauty queen goes international with her flick Politics Of Love. ‘Avatar’ star Laz Alonso appears in the movie along with the curvy babe. Mallika will be playing the cameo of a local Obama volunteer coordinator. She was also a part of the movie The Myth with world famous Jackie Chan.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: There is not one in her kitty, but many. Her first international film was Mistress of Spices, the dove-eyed beauty paved her way for more. Pink Panther 2 and The Last Legion are the movies too that helped her to achieve Hollywood fame.
AR Rahman: He appeared to be a touchstone for the international hit Slumdog Millionaire. He touched it and the movie turned out to be a precious gem in the cinema history. He won an Oscar award for the best original song and the best original score at the 81st Academy Awards.
Irrfan Khan: It’s not only the females who join the league. Here we come across the ultimate actor, Irrfan Khan who made it big with Namesake and also grabbed a role in The Mighty Heart opposite Angelina Jolie.
Anil Kapoor: How could we not include Anil Kapoor in the foray? Playing the host of a game show in the movie Slumdog Millionaire, he won millions and trillions of accolades. Lot of compliments and praises came his way after his tiny supporting role in the movie. May it be a small role, but he got the green signal from Hollywood, at least.
Naseeruddin Shah: The actor of class and integrity found an appearance in Hollywood’s famous project, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Valley of Flowers.
Om Puri: He is not a newbie to Hollywood. Rather he is one of the oldest and the first stars to go for Hollywood. The Ghost And The Darkness and East Is East are a few of his assignments to mention.
Anupam Kher: The matchless actor is bound to get Hollywood projects for his acting skills. We got to see Anupam Kher in Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution.
They may have begun their career in Bollywood, but it seems they want a ticket to Hollwood now. With Hollywood movies, the Bollywood bigshots are climbing huge rungs of the ladder. Bollywood freaks will surely miss them all but we should not forget they are bringing thecountry in notice with lot of appreciation in their bag.
