Bollywood Actress Sonam Kapoor: Won't talk ill about an actress on a personal front

When it comes to posting views on various topics on social networking sites, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is very active and feels that as a public figure it is her responsibility to comment on important issues. 
Also, she insists that issues command an honest opinion.

 "It is very irresponsible to be diplomatic on certain things. Just because you are an actress does not mean you can't have an opinion," said the 28-year-old who is active on Twitter. 

"You can't be diplomatic on certain things. I will never talk ill about an actress on a personal front. But if it comes to important things, then I should have an opinion," added the actress who struck gold with her performance in 'Raanjhanaa'.

 Having an opinion isn't risky either.&nbsp

"It is not risky if I have an opinion about something important. If someone is being sexist, homophobic or if the government is wrong... I will say something. If I think I have said something wrong, then I will apologise for it," she said.

Daughter of Sunita and actor Anil Kapoor, she feels her forthrightness sets an example for other girls. "If I am someone who is a public figure and cannot have an opinion, the other girls will get scared. I am not as popular as other actresses, but I have a little bit of popularity and I must use that to see how girls are projected," she said.

In 'Raanjhanaa' too, the actress played a public figure involved in college politics, but dismissed any similarity between her and her character. "Zoya is different from me. She is involved in the politics of JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University). Sometimes when other public figures like politicians and spiritual gurus make some stupid remark, I react to it like other young people on a social platform. I don't think there is anything wrong in it as it encourages other young girls to come forward," she said.

Bollywood Actress News: Priyanka Chopra ft Pitbull Exotic Official Video

Though her Exotic is the number one song on the India iTunes list, it's nowhere in sight on the US charts.

Bollywood actress turned singer "Priyanka Chopra" seems to have taken a leaf out of international singing sensation "Jennifer Lopez's" book to boost her musical career.

After her debut international single In My City feat. failed to top the charts, Piggy Chops thought it was a good idea to rope in rapper "Pitbull" for her second single Exotic.

Interestingly, "Jennifer Lopez's" collaboration with had also failed to set the charts afire, and it was none other than Pitbull who gave "Lopez" her top three hits on the US charts in the last decade.

Alas! The formula doesn't quite seem to be working for the Indian beauty.

Though her Exotic is the number one song on the India iTunes list, it's nowhere in sight on the US charts.

As far as the video is concerned, it just doesn't live up to the hype generated on the social media. Shot in Miami, it shows a bikini-clad Priyanka frolicking in the waves and singing the verses in English with a few lines of Hindi thrown in.

What's surprising is that everything about the video - right from the locales, shots, lyrics, dance steps - seems amateurish.

While Priyanka manages a few hot moments, we wonder what Pitbull is up to as he tries to keep up with the Bollywood actress.

While the possibility of Exotic tasting success is debatable, the actress received her share of bouquets and brickbats on Twitter for her latest single album:

Bollywood Actress News: Aging Madhuri, Juhi promote healthcare

Madhuri Dixit promote healthcare

Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla might have ruled the celluloid in the 1990s, but these silver screen sirens of yesteryears have been busy promoting health instead of films these days.

They came together for the first time to promote healthcare and not film in the national capital on Wednesday.

The city saw Madhuri's dazzling 1,000 watt smile as she made appearance in a new role as a "chief smile officer" with an oral care product. While the Dhak-Dhak girl was promoting oral care, the chirpy and vivacious Juhi was named ambassador of the thyroid awareness initiative.

The ladies might be promoting health awareness, but they both had reasons to celebrate too. While Madhuri was ecstatic about her soon to be unveiled wax statue at London's famous Madame Tussauds museum, Juhi seemed extremely surprised with her Filmfare Awards nomination for her role as Megha in film I Am Megha.

Juhi Chawla

The two actresses did rule the roost in their prime, but as age catches up health is what they have turned to rather gracefully.
