Emma Watson turns designer for People Tree
Emma WatsonHarry Potter’ star Emma Watson is creating a new range of "clean, sexy" outfits for ethical clothing brand People Tree. The young actress is excited by the idea of using fashion as a tool to "alleviate poverty" by using organic and imported cotton.

Watson, who already has contracts with fashion labels Burberry and Chanel, is working as creative advisor for People Tree’s new range that is aiming at bringing fair trade and organic fashion to the 16-24 age group.

"I was excited by the idea of using fashion as a tool to alleviate poverty and knew it was something I could help make a difference with," said Watson.

"I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian and environmental issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there," she added.

The People Tree line, comprising 26 women’s styles and 15 for men, plus a small accessories range, will enter stores in late February 2010.

Katrina Kaif to romance Hrithik Roshan
Katrina KaifIt is believed that Katrina Kaif has become very selective in matters of accepting roles, especially when there is competition brewing up from all fronts. Her projects in 2010 are apparently handpicked to enhance her reputation as an actor.

The latest, which she has conformed, looks promising as it has the Bollywood’s most vied actor Hrithik Roshan featuring in the lead. The film is being made by Zoya Akhtar (who made Luck by Chance) and it’s called ‘Road Movie’ set in Spain with Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol.

Zoya’s film casts Katrina with Hrithik for the first time ever, and Katrina’s part is said to be something she has never played before. Though Katrina is unwilling to reveal facts about the project, Farhan Akhtar is speaking guardedly about the subject.

However Farhan revealed, “It’s too early to talk about it, but yes, if Katrina does come into our project, she will be cast opposite Hrithik. He is the only one who gets to romance his love interest. Abhay and I have no love interest in the film. Though it’s not the romance, but the bonding among three of us which is going to be the high point of the film.”

IIFA Awards 2010 to be held in Seoul
Seoul (South Korea) will host the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards in 2010.

It is expected to draw hundreds of India’s leading actors, actresses and filmmakers.

Starting with London (United Kingdom) in 2000, these annual Awards events have been held in South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore, Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Thailand, People’s Republic of China and are announced to be held in Canada (Toronto) in June 2011 . IIFA Awards are said to recognize, honor and celebrate the achievements of India’s film industry. It claims to attract a worldwide television audience of over 350 million.

Welcoming Seoul’s move to host Awards events, acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed said that it was time now for American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to recognize India’s contribution to world cinema and introduce a new award category of “Best Bollywood Film” in Oscars for films made in India. This gesture would bring more credibility to Oscars also in the international arena, as it was long overdue, Rajan Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation, added.

Seoul has been described by Lonely Planet as a “fashion-filled” city that “vibrates with energy night and day” and South Korea as “a country of endless possibilities”. Bollywood is said to be producing about double the number of movies than Hollywood and about four billion cinema tickets are sold annually in India.

Mumbai based IIFA endeavors to promote Indian cinema and showcase its talent globally. Its founder-directors are Andre Timmins, Viraf Sarkari, and Sabbas Joseph. Its Advisory Board boasts of big Bollywood names: Amitabh Bachchan (Brand Ambassador), David Dhawan, J.P. Dutta, Jaya Bachchan, Karan Johar, Manmohan Shetty, Pahlaj Nihalani, Ramesh Sippy, Shyam Shroff, and Vinod Khanna.
Kareena Kapoor roped in by Madhur Bhandarkar
Kareena KapoorIf all goes well, Kareena Kapoor will soon emerge as a strong contender to win the National Award. The stunning lass who has been vying to work with acclaimed director Madhur Bhandarkar for long now has finally caught the taskmaster’s attention and will be seen in a film by the maverick filmmaker. And it’s all owing to Kareena’s desire to bag the prestigious National Award.

Considering that there are so many random awards of late, the only award that is considered prestigious is the National Film Awards. And Madhur takes the lead in this category. So it’s no wonder that after Priyanka walked away with the award for her act in ‘Fashion’, Bebo had been desperate to work with Madhur.

And Madhur is much too pleased to oblige the sizzler’s request. According to a source, "Madhur is planning to direct a hard-sitting social film for which he wants Kareena. She has been offered Madhur’s film. It’s a fantastic, heroine-oriented script and she is meeting him for a narration. Bebo is very excited to be working with him. They have both been keen on working together for a long time. Madhur had approached her for Page 3 (Konkana’s role) and for Fashion (Priyanka’s role) but her dates didn’t work out.”

Talking about the director, Kareena said, "Madhur is any actress’s dream director. He can extract the best performances from anybody."

Sandra Bullock stands 2009’s top Hollywood star
Sandra BullockIn the eyes of US movie theater owners, Sandra Bullock shined as 2009’s top Hollywood star at the box office, as the actress nicknamed “America’s Sweetheart” scored with audiences after a two year absence from screens.

Quigley Publishing Company’s annual list of top money making stars, based on a poll of hundreds of theater executives, had Bullock beat out such stars as George Clooney and Denzel Washington, on the strength of her roles in “The Proposal” and “The Blind Side”.

Romantic comedy “The Proposal” made $315 million at worldwide box offices following its June release, and football drama “The Blind Side” has made $193 million only in the US and Canada since its November 20 release, with its roll-out in other countries still to come.

Bullock, who also starred in the 2009 comedy "All About Steve" with its $34 million take in the U.S. and Canada, is the eighth woman to top Quigley’s list of top money making stars, which the company has put out each year since 1932.

Quigley Publishing said the list does not rank stars only on how much cash their films made, but on what theater owners say about who attracts audiences on their star power alone.

For instance, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” was the top movie at US and Canada box offices in 2009 with more than $400 million, but many in Hollywood attribute that to the appeal of the franchise itself and the toys it’s based on.

The last woman to top Quigley’s list was Julia Roberts in 1999. She failed to make Quigley’s 2009 top 10 this year, after her turn in romantic comedy “Duplicity” bombed at the box office.

Bullock scored her first smash hit with 1994 action movie “Speed” and became one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, but before “The Proposal” she had not starred in a film since 2007.

“Public Enemies” star Johnny Depp came in at No 2 on Quigley’s top 10 list, followed by Matt Damon, George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Denzel Washington.
