paoli_dam

Paoli Dam, one of the stars of Bengali Cinema, is a rare breed.

Kangana Ranaut

What is it about Kangana Ranaut? She is stylish and gorgeous in some pictures, mildly amused in others and in others she loos like she’s measuring up the price of your soul and chuckling at the deal she’s going to get.

She looks like she’ll scold you so that you face burns like a ping-pong paddle, and we don’t rate your chances if you don’t have the exact number of sugar grains in her morning tea. Born in Bhambla, a small town in Himachal Pradesh, Ranaut initially aspired to become a doctor at the insistence of her parents. According to Ranaut, she was “stubborn and rebellious” while growing up: “If my father would gift my brother a plastic gun and get a …

Such a character is Asin – so big that she doesn’t need a last name to qualify her any further. She was born in 1985 in Kochi, Kerala State, into a Syro-Malabar family. As a result she speaks 7 languages and is one of the rare few actresses that dubbed her own films in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Asin was to be named Mary, after her paternal grandmother. Her father however, named her Asin. She states that the ‘A’ in her name is from Sanskrit meaning “without”, and “sin” from English. Asin’s first movie was the 2001 Malayalam release ‘Narendran Makan Jayakanthan Vaka’. Asin was just a teenager at …
