Deepika Padukone will be the busiest actor of 2013!
With four new films in her kitty, the leggy lass will be working round the clock in the New Year. Are B-town’s workaholic stars like Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan listening?
We know that Shahrukh Khan can work non-stop thanks to the tremendous energy the superstar is born with. Amitabh Bachchan, at 70, amazes us with his solid work ethics and his dedication that can easily put a twenty-something to shame. And Aamir Khan is known for giving his 100 percent to his craft and can go to any lengths to achieve that enviable perfection. And now joining the league of these super-busy stars is none other than our leggy lass Deepika Padukone.
Dippy is doing four films in the New Year. She will be seen opposite Ranveer Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next Ram Leela. She will be playing the lady love of Shahrukh Khan in Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express. These two projects with meaty roles will keep Dips on her toes in 2013. The leggy beauty will also start working on Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani opposite her ex-flame Ranbir Kapoor, and she will be seen opposite none other than Rajinikanth in one of the most awaited releases Kochadaiyaan.
If that’s not enough, Dips is gearing up to promote her first action dhamaka of the New Year-Race 2. Phew! Looks like 2013 is all set to give us copious amounts of sizzle, glitz and an endless treat in terms of that dazzling smile and those never-ending gorgeous legs! Dips, we are confident that your hard work will pay off and we are going to appreciate your efforts to the hilt, babe!
Amitabh Bachchan (born Inquilaab Srivastava; 11 October 1942) is an Indian film actor, film producer, television host, occasional playback singer and former politician. He first gained popularity in the early 1970s for films such as Zanjeer, Deewaar and Sholay, and was dubbed India’s “angry young man” for his on-screen roles in Hindi films. Referred to as the Shahenshah of Bollywood (in reference to his 1988 film Shahenshah), Sadi ka Mahanayak (Hindi for, “Greatest actor of the century”), Star of the Millennium, or Big B, he has since appeared in over 200 Indian films in a career spanning more than five decades. Bachchan is regarded as one of the greatest actors in the history of Indian cinema.
He was the most dominant actor in the Indian movie scene during the 1970s–1980s, with the French director François Truffaut calling him a “one-man industry”. Beyond the Indian subcontinent, he also has a large overseas following in markets including Africa (South Africa and Mauritius), the Middle East (especially UAE and Egypt), the United Kingdom, Russia, the Caribbean (Guyana, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago), Oceania (Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand) and parts of the United States.
Bachchan has won numerous accolades in his career, including four National Film Awards as Best Actor, Dadasaheb Phalke Award as lifetime achievement award and many awards at international film festivals and award ceremonies. He has won fifteen Filmfare Awards and is the most nominated performer in any major acting category at Filmfare, with 41 nominations overall. In addition to acting, Bachchan has worked as a playback singer, film producer and television presenter. He has hosted several seasons of the game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, India’s version of the game show franchise, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. He also entered politics for a time in the 1980s.
The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri in 1984, the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015 for his contributions to the arts. The Government of France honoured him with its highest civilian honour, Knight of the Legion of honour, in 2007 for his exceptional career in the world of cinema and beyond. Bachchan also made an appearance in a Hollywood film, Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby (2013), in which he played a non-Indian Jewish character, Meyer Wolfsheim.
