★Rani Mukherji★ Bombay Talkies

Rani Mukherji has been pretty quiet for the last few years, but we've seen a lot more of her lately. She had two releases in the last quarter of 2012: Aiyyaa and Talaash, the latter of which earned her a nomination for Filmfare Award For Best Supporting Actress.

As a delight for all Rani fans, here she is starring in one of the four short films as part of an anthology which celebrates 100 years of Hindi cinema. The film is called Bombay Talkies, and is directed by the likes of Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibaker Banerjee. The film also includes a cameo appearance from Katrina Kaif who seems to be playing an angel, as seen in the trailer below.

★Priyanka Chopra★ Item Queen

Priyanka Chopra | Babli Badmaash
Priyanka Chopra finally agreed to do an item number. Yes she was seen in a cameo appearance alongside Shah Rukh Khan in 2009's Billu but that was not a full on item song in our eyes.

The track has been specifically composed for her by veteran Anu Malik - with vocals from the greatest pop voice of this generation, the one and only Sunidhi Chauhan.

The track of course is titled 'Babli Badmaash' - it has a late 70s/early 80s post-disco vibe to it. It's got to be a grower because on the first few listens it doesn't seem the most catchiest of tunes. Check it out.
