First Indian Guess Girl is Priyanka Chopra

Yes, she’s hot. A sort of a Cindy Crawford meets Amy Winehouse, minus the crack and track mark hiding tattoos. Priyanka Chopra is a “Guess Girl”. She’s relatively unknown, but is a Bollywood star having made 40 movies (which could now be 50), and she’s now reaching out towards music in America in music, modeling and acting. She was a Miss World winner in 2000 and is now 31. Will she “make it?” Has she already made it? Does she need this? We’ll see fairly soon if her songs hit, but meanwhile she’ll be looking good in black and white in Guess ads. Anyone know where they advertise these days? (New York Times)

There’s surely some controversy and this starlet born to Indian parents to migrated to Canada is making her way as a crossover star. It’s a feat that many US stars are making efforts to achieve and she’s closer than most. It could last 15 minutes, but you never know. (Asian Sentinel – Sunny Leone)

Bollywood Coming to a PC Near You (If You Live in India)

“Yes. It’s time to get that unlimited download Internet plan.” Too bad this new venture, announced yesterday by Google, is only available in India. Bollywood movies are a lot of cheesy, musical melodramatic fun, and now though Google’s new YouTube Box Office, Indian movie fans will be able to stream the latest Bollywood hits in HD though their personal computers and internet-connected televisions.
