IN STYLE: Rani Mukerji, Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Aishwarya Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra. 
The actress’ Mughal-e-Azam look has made her fashionable once again

SHARIN WADER BUTANI Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; November 30, 2009)

Don’t know if you’ve noticed but Vidya Balan, who’s making a big comeback to Bollywood with Paa this week, is suddenly one of the nattiest dressers in tinsel town. And, just by repeating stylish variations of the same Indian garment once popularised by Madhubala as Anarkali in Mughal-e-Azam. Vidya, who was notoriously considered Bollywood’s worst fashionista after her disastrous wardrobe in Heyy Babyy, has glamourously reinvented herself. And, by choosing to wear the Anarkalistyled churidaar in different avatars, the actress has inadvertently become a trendsetter of sorts. Several Bollywood divas have been spotted wearing the Mughal-e-Azam look after Vidya.
Aishwarya Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor carry it off well, and so do Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra, Rani Mukerji and Sonam Kapoor. Even some telly stars are seen in the long flowy garment these days. Vidya refused to take credit for this new fashion trend and said, “I’m flattered. It feels good to know that women are liking it.” She has always preferred ethnic wear to western. “Though the Anarkali covers you from head to toe, it’s still very sensuous… like the saree,” said Vidya who has an Anarkali in almost every colour and style. “I might have brought it back in vogue,” she reluctantly accepted “but Indian women have always been wearing one.”

…says Sushmita Sen who returns to Bollywood after two years looking like a diva again

AAKANKSHA NAVAL-SHETYE Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; September 16, 2009)

It’s been two long years since we last saw Bollywood diva Sushmita Sen sizzle on screen. This of course, barring the passable international film Karma, Confessions and Holi, which the former beauty queen vehemently denied being associated with. “Yes, it’s been long since I have seen me on screen too,” she jokes. Having shed the extra weight she’d had to gain for a movie role, the leggy beauty’s looking her usual svelte self. “Sexy, sensuous, gorgeous, it’s all about what’s up here,” she says, pointing towards her head. But now she’s ready to put her sexiest foot forward, as she readies to make up for her long absence with two back-to-back films coming up and a string of flicks lined up next year as well.

Kickstarting with Do Knot Disturb, followed by Dulha Mil Gaya and later No Problem, Sush also seems to have finally found her forte — comedy. But point this out and she is quick to clarify, “I don’t want to be bound down by genres. But yes, I am really tired of consolation prizes and do want to sign up more commercial films. I am done with the experimenting phase,” she says, reflecting on her choice of films post Main Hoon Na.

And though she doesn’t regret her choices, she does admit that several have left a bitter taste. “I gave up a lot of roles to do films that I thought would bring out the actress rather than the heroine in me,” she says candidly. “But today is different. Now I want to go in for the kill, at least that’s the idea,” she asserts the fighting spirit in her. Keen to repeat the success, she tasted with her early attempts at comedy, now she is looking forward to silencing her detractors once again.

Looking back at the past two years, Sush was kept busy by the constant speculation revolving around her personal life and professional. But she always maintained a dignified silence, whether it was talks about her weight gain — which she had incidentally gained to play the role of
a hatti katti wife opposite Govinda in Do Knot… — or about her onand-off relationship with filmmaker Mudassar or even her ambitious project Rani Laxmi Bai and more recently reports of tension between her and good friend Shah Rukh Khan. “I am very vocal, but not reactive. I don’t believe in feeding rubbish stories. Sometimes being the silent puppy is the ultimate diva act,” she says, dismissing the apparent fight with SRK as a rumour.

However, talk about her pet project Rani Laxmi Bai and she reveals that she’s happy at the moment to watch the historical character being revived on television. “The project is on hold and will remain so till I don’t get to make it my way.” And about her film based on the life of late Benazir Bhutto? “Well that has to be cleared by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). It’s a very controversial film so the moment we get a clearance, the project will be on,” she confirms.

Till then she’s happy with the films on her platter and a “gorgeous daughter” to keep her busy back home. “Oh, she’s a very sharp girl. In fact, I learn a lot from her each day,” says the proud mamma. But between the momdaughter duo does the father talk ever crop up. “Renee would surely like to have a father, but she doesn’t miss one yet. Often I tease her about getting her married off, and she’s quick to retort, ‘Not before you get married first,’ so yes, that’ll happen sometime too. We will definitely get a dad for Renee.” But who and when? “Well, that’s not something I am revealing yet,” she smiles.
