"It’s mainly about how you feel. I wouldn’t feel sexy if I was walking around in high heels, a tight top, huge earrings and an elaborate hairdo all day. But there are women who seem confident and sexy like that. It’s a lot about how you move in your outfit and if you feel comfortable in it," said Refaeli.

Aishwarya Rai more confident about doing Tamil movies
Aishwarya RaiAishwarya Rai started her film career with Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film ‘Iruvar’ in 1997, but says she feels "confident" about doing more Tamil films only now after the multilingual ‘Raavan’ with the National Award winning director.

"I understand a bit of Tamil and speak a bit of it. For me, it is very important that I understand the meaning of my dialogues before I deliver them. I can’t just mug up the dialogues. So for ‘Raavan’, I made sure I knew what I was saying and yes, I have improved a lot on the language and I am confident about doing more Tamil stuff in future," Aishwarya said.

"After ‘Raavan’, it was like – ‘Come on! Bring on ‘Robot’ (now ‘Endhiran’)," she said.

‘Raavan’ is Ratnam’s much-awaited project and also stars Abhishek Bachchan, southern superstar Vikram and Bhojpuri star Ravi Kishan. The movie has been simultaneously shot in Hindi and Tamil, with a slightly different cast.

Aishwarya plays Ragini, a classical dance teacher. The first look into the movie shows her dancing gracefully in a song where she has been picturised getting cosy with Vikram, who plays her husband in the Hindi version of the film.

One mention of how beautiful the dance moves looked, and Aishwarya said: "Aww...Thank you so much."

Talking about her role, she said: "This was an extremely challenging role for me. To shoot it in Hindi and Tamil at the same time was quite a task. But the experience was so wonderful that if Mani sir asks me, I am ready to do it all over again."

According to the actress, her role was a discovery and a mystery.

"Ragini is a strong woman and very relatable to the modern Indian woman. She speaks her mind. I say discovery because we kept discovering fantastic locations and got to see so many places. We used to trek every morning to be on the sets.

"The role remained a mystery because I was playing the leading lady and there I was with no make-up, no fancy clothes and all drenched in rain with mud all over. But that’s what Mani sir expects from us to keep it all as real as it can get," she said.

Aishwarya says they used to give shots with "snakes a whisper away" and that they "must have donated blood to 300 leeches".

"All in all, it was an incredibly original experience. It was almost like being on a ‘Fear Factor’ show," she added.

Aishwarya & Freida to fight at Cannes
Aishwarya RaiWhile Indian film fraternity is gearing up to make its presence felt at the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival, two of the most glamorous B-town beauties seem to be getting ready to fight it out with each other at the much-awaited evening.

Well, we are talking about the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai and the stunning Freida Pinto, who are set to walk the red carpet at the coveted fest next month. According to the latest buzz, Ash and Freida are gearing up in their own way to make sure that one looks better than the other as they go on to represent India at the 63rd Cannes Film Fest.

Freida is expected to come to Cannes as part of the cast of Woody Allen’s new film ‘You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger’, which was shot in London and also stars Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins and Anna Friel. The film, which features Anupam Kher as the father of the character played by Freida, is being shown out of competition.

On the other hand, Bollywood’s international face, Ash, is set to dazzle the occasion along with hubby Abhishek Bachchan and filmmaker Mani Ratnam, as the trio would screen their upcoming flick ‘Raavan’ at the ‘Official India Pavillion’.

In the past, the ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actress had to defend her decision for not wearing a sari, by saying that that she was too young for it. However, for this year too, it has still not been revealed if Freida would wear something Indian when she graces the red carpet during the world’s most glamorous film festival in May. Whereas, style diva Ash seems pretty confident about the fashion statement she’s set to make at the occasion.

We’d have to wait to find out who manages to make a stronger impression at Cannes this time round – Freida or Aishwarya?

Fergie launches her own perfume
FergieAfter Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna, it is now ‘Black Eyed Peas’ singer Fergie who is launching her own perfume which she is calling ‘Outspoken’.

The ‘Glamorous’ hitmaker said that she decided to call her scent ‘Outspoken’ as she wanted it to be, "strong and empowering", not "cutesy".

"I didn’t want to call it Duchess, or Glamorous, or Fergalicious, or something that I’ve already done. I didn’t want it to be so cutesy. I wanted it to be strong and empowering, something that represents me as a whole woman, a fearless woman," said the singer-actress.

The fragrance developed with cosmetic firm Avon will surely turn heads, says the singer.

"From my music to my wardrobe, my style is all about speaking up and making a statement. That’s why my first-ever fragrance exudes independence.

‘Outspoken’ definitely turns heads, but it also lets your true personality shine through," said the 34 year old.

The scent mixes notes of starfruit, tuberose, jasmine, and passion flower with base notes like black leather and smoky vetiver, and has already won over one person, Fergie’s husband, actor Josh Duhamel.
Asin turns adventurous
Southern sensation Asin Thottumkal is literally following the footprints of Bollywood’s favourite actor Salman Khan, who is known for brash ways, mercurial temper and quirky disposition and has a penchant for the unusual- hopping into rickshaws and riding bicycles to the film sets.
Asin Thottumkal
Recently, Bollywood newbie Asin, who had to catch a flight for Mumbai from Madurai airport, travelled in a bullock cart.

A source said, “It is a two-hour drive to Madurai airport from Kairaikudi. Asin was to catch a flight to Mumbai and was accompanied by three friends. On the way, they spotted a bullock cart and one thing led to another. When her friends challenged Asin to ride on it, she immediately agreed.”

However, when Asin decided to leave the car and choose the bullock cart, the owner was completely dumbfound. “He initially thought that Asin just wanted to click some pictures, but when she asked to ride in the bullock cart, he was flabbergasted. Since the flight was a little delayed, Asin and her friends had some time on hand, so they travelled in the bullock cart for over 25 minutes before getting back in the car,” added the source.

Even as the bullock cart owner was surprised, people travelling in close proximity were bewildered to see the actress. “Some of them came running to ask her for autographs. It was an adventurous ride for the actress and she enjoyed it thoroughly,” added the source further.

The spokesman of Asin confirmed the news and said, “She has an adventurous streak and enjoyed the bullock cart ride.”
Angelina Jolie no longer attracted to Brad Pitt
Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie is apparently not happy with partner Brad Pitt these days.

The National Enquirer reports that the actress hates Pitt’s shabby look.

She is said to be urging the actor to get rid of his ridiculous beard hiding his bad looks and have a facelift.

“Angie told Brad he looked like a total wreck and needed to do something radical before she found him attractive again,” said a source.

“The sad truth is Brad looks like a pale shadow of his former self. His skin is in terrible condition and he’s grown this ridiculous beard to try and cover-up how bad he looks underneath.

“Angie has tried to be understanding and at first didn’t want to saying anything, fearing she could hurt his feelings.

“But with each passing week, she’s told pals, she was finding him less and less attractive. It’s finally got to the point where she was seeing him as a brother or friend than as a sexual partner.

“When Brad finally called Angie out about her lack of desire to jump in the sack with him, it led to an horrific argument. She told him he just isn’t the same handsome man she fell in love with and needed to do something to sort himself out.

“Brad couldn’t believe what she was saying, but once he calmed down he vowed to take action. He said he will have a facelift if that is what it takes to revive their relationship," the source added.

Shilpa Shetty to become highest ever-paid celebrity
Shilpa ShettyGorgeous Shilpa Shetty has been approached by a world-famous publisher asking her for rights to publish her autobiography. The actress will reportedly be paid a whopping amount to say her life-story, which is not less than any Bollywood potboiler.

The long-limbed lass saw many ups and downs in life before she found her ground in the industry. According to a source, “The publishers have asked her to start off with her experiences in Tinseltown as she dissects her struggle to reach the top and the ups and downs she had to go through. The autobiography will also narrate her success in Celebrity Big Brother post which she became a global icon.”

The source added, “The book will heavily talk about her turnaround and transition into a successful and multi-faceted entrepreneur. Shilpa has also been requested by the publisher to write a closing chapter about her marriage. She has been approached with a great offer that would make her the highest ever paid celebrity in India to write an autobiography.”

“She has an enviable fan following in England and in other parts of Europe too and publishers feel her autobiography will fly off the shelves in no time. How many reprints the book will have is also being discussed,” the source said.

Shilpa Shetty confirmed the news. “It is true that I have been approached by a big publisher to write my autobiography. I realise that my life story will be a colourful one since I have seen so much and experienced the ups and downs. With no godfathers in the industry, I earned a name and repute through hard work for years and if not instantly I have been duty rewarded for being honest. So, this is a huge compliment,” Shilpa said.

However, the actress will take her own time before starting off with the autobiography. “I will definitely write one. But right now I am too busy with my cricket venture. I have no time to breathe. Then, I have spas and other things also to look after. I have lots to do, miles to go and much to achieve in future. I have lots of plans that I need to execute.”

The ‘Constant Gardener’ star likes to play the role of an extra-ordinary woman onscreen, but has a normal life.

"Of course, it’s not ordinary to get dressed in frocks to walk down red carpets and travel all over the world and stay in five-star hotels. I’m not working in a factory. But I drop Henry off at school and pick him up. I try my hardest to keep everyone together," Weisz said.

However, the 40 year old actress is still in love with acting as she believes there is always a new project for her to get involved in.

"That’s the great thing about acting. I can never imagine being satiated. It’s just like some math problem to figure out. I’m just getting started," Weisz said.
Kristen Stewart announces love for Robert Pattinson
Kristen StewartKristen Stewart is finally telling the world that she loves Robert Pattinson as she goes gaga over describing the Hollywood heartthrob.

The 20 year old actress, who stars alongside Pattinson in “The Twilight Saga” movies, said she feels strongly for him because he has a childish side.

"I love Rob because he always wants to be the best. He can be very childish.

When Rob does something right or wins something he talks with a different, little voice like a five year old," Stewart said. "Rob is sexy, in a tortured artist way.

This might be because he is British. He’s tall, looks like he is thinking all the time and is incredibly funny," she added.

"I love the way he sings. It breaks my heart.

And don’t you think he’s just gorgeous? Rob’s also a very bad liar, he just can’t do it," she added. The American star also claims Robert once proposed to her for a joke.

"He asked me to marry him. As a joke, though.

Well at least I think so," Stewart said. The couple have been rumoured to be in a relationship since they first met on the set of the vampire movies, but have never officially been seen together, despite rumours they were going to reveal their status at this year’s BAFTA Awards.

"It is extremely difficult but we are together, yes. We can’t arrive at the same time because of the fans, it goes crazy," Pattinson had said.

Bundchen says she is more focused on her creations being environmentally-friendly rather than how much she helped design them.

"Nature is very close to my heart, and it is important for me that people who buy my flip-flops are made aware of the environment," she said.

Increasing site traffic by Web Directories
Internet is the order of today’s world. Anything that you can find in the real world can be found on the net. From online movies to making social networks, from e-shopping to stock trading, from entertainment to education everything is there in the net. Only thing is that one has to look for the things of your need. Internet is a vast ocean where finding exactly what you are looking for is not easy, but your job is been made easy by the search engines and web directories.

A web directory is nothing but a directory on the World Wide Web, which provides you with links to sites. It is unlike Search Engines as one has to give key words in search engines to look for things of need, but in web directory, this is not the case. A web directory lists under different categories and sub categories. The different categories are science and technology, entertainment, education, literature, Business and marketing etc.

One of the most famous types of web directory is the free web directory. These types of directories offer free submission of sites. Apart from this there others which offer free submission of sites but a reciprocal link to the site is to be put in your site. Another type of web directories are the paid directories, where one has to pay money to get a link of the site listed in the directory. Apart from this there are several other types of web directories. The biggest merit of having a site listed in directories is that it increases the traffic of the site and also helps the site grow.

There are several categories of sites in today’s world like scientific sites, entertainment sites, shopping sites etc. A good web directory is one which does appropriate categorization of the sites. Also such directories should be user friendly. If the web directories are SEO friendly it makes the web directories more effective. Some of the very popular web directories are DMOZ, Yahoo Directory, BOTW etc. All these directories have the characteristics of a good web directory.

So if you have a site and want to promote it and help it grow, Web directories could just help you in doing so.

Only one film in Sharman Joshi’s kitty
Sharman JoshiAfter the success of ‘3 Idiots’, actor Sharman Joshi has started endorsing big brands like Nokia and Airtel, but he has just one movie – ‘Allah Ke Banday’ - to look forward to in the near future.

"Right now I don’t have anything in hand. ‘Allah Kay Banday’ will be my next film. We have finished shooting for it. It is in post-production stage at the moment and I am still considering more scripts for future," said Sharman.

The actor was in the capital Tuesday to celebrate 70 years of restaurant chain KFC’s signature product - Original recipe.

While he took chunky bites of a chicken leg at the press meet, Sharman said he would love to endorse KFC, which is among his favourite eating joints.

But for now he is happy with his new set of endorsements which include Nokia and Airtel, brands which A-list actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have represented in the past.

Sharman says he is "indifferent" about being in the same league as such actors.

"I am completely indifferent to thoughts like who was endorsing this product before or who else is. I am just proud to be associated with these brands because I believe in them. Nothing else beyond this matters," he said.

On the Bollywood front too the actor likes to stay away from comparison and competition, despite having earned so much appreciation from movies like ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘3 Idiots’.

"I act, because that’s what I like to do. It’s my passion. It’s not that I like it because I like fame. Fame and adulation are by-products of being an actor and those are not the prime reasons why I am here in Bollywood," said Sharman, who earlier featured in films like ‘Style’, ‘Xcuse Me’, ‘Dhol’ and ‘Golmaal’.

In ‘Allah Ke Banday’, an intense drama about juvenile crimes, Sharman will be seen alongside veterans Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher.

Woody Allen drops Carla Bruni for his next
Carla BruniFilmmaker Woody Allen has replaced French First Lady Carla Bruni with Marion Cotillard in his new film.

Allen had last year said that Bruni would be the "natural" choice to star in his forthcoming flick, which is set in France, describing her as "wonderful". However, earlier this year rumour zone went into overdrive around Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy’s marriage, which seemed to have left the Allen sour.

"Carla Bruni is not a woman who earns her living as an actress. She is a First Lady. She could be taken away at any moment by other duties. I have to take account of the risks there could be and hiring her is far from certain," he said.

The filming starts in July and the cast will also include Canadian star Rachel McAdams and American actor Owen Wilson.

I am smart and intelligent, boasts Bipasha Basu
Bipasha BasuBipasha Basu boasts that if she had not been smart and intelligent, she wouldn’t be where she’s now.

"If you all have been seeing me over the years, you know that I have a good level of smartness," Bipasha told at Mumbai’s Le Sutra hotel where she unveiled the Globetrotter Glam special issue of Marie Claire magazine.

"It’s a tough job being an actor and that too being an actor coming from outside without any support system, making your name in this business," she added.

"I think if I was not smart and intelligent I wouldn’t have been here today on the cover of Marie Claire and here as Bipasha Basu. It’s very important to be smart and have a personality," the actress added.

Bipasha even gave some tips for the scorching Indian summer.

She believes cotton clothes are the best for the season. "Being in a country like India, I think it’s very important that we wear clothes friendly to the weather. Any kind of cotton clothing like linen pyjamas, linen dresses and shorts with sandals - I think that’s what is needed for this weather," she said.

The actress recommended taking more water and juices to keep one’s system hydrated during summer.

"In summer we need hydration because it is really hot in India. So I would suggest drinking lots of water, fluids, juices and curd with your food. You need to keep your system a little cooler and hydrated all the times," she said.
