In the poll, Amitabh Bachchan is declared the best power dresser and his daughter-in-law Aishwarya is named the best dressed celeb on the red carpet, while Malaika Arora Khan the most stylish celebrity mom title.

Aamir Khan is declared the celebrity for whom technology and style go hand-in-hand, Rekha with the traditional Indian fashion sense, Vidya Balan with the most unique fashion sense.

Three-fourths of the survey respondents comprised the youth aged between 18-34 years.

Ranbir’s Romance with Evelyn

Evelyn Sharma, the German-Indian model-turned-actor to make her debut into Bollywood opposite actor Pratiek in director Manish Tiwari’s Issaq, which releases in the middle of this year. She will now be seen playing actor Ranbir Kapoor’s love interest in Ayan Mukherjee’s next, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani (YJHD), which also stars Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur. Evelyn says, “The character I play is very girly and at the start of the movie, Ranbir falls in love with her.”

Evelyn has finished shooting a major part of the film by now. “It’s about how a hot girl comes into a guy’s life and he eventually starts taking interest in her. The role is quite interesting and we have song and dance sequences together as well,” she says.

Compared to YJHD, Evelyn has a more intense role in Issaq. Explaining her role in the movie, Evelyn says, “I play a foreigner who comes to Banaras for a visit. It’s like the desi version of Romeo and Juliet. My role is of Roasaline, Romeo’s first love, which breaks his heart. In Issaq my name is Rosa and she doesn’t endorse his (Prateik) ideas of love. Instead, she teaches him what love actually is.”

Her modeling career helped Evelyn get many film offers, but she chose to train herself before venturing into B-Town. She says, “I took proper training in acting for four months under director Rahul Rawail. In his academy, they also taught me how to read and write Hindi. I brushed up my diction, as I did not want someone else dubbing for me.” Currently, Evelyn is learning to dance. She will also be seen in From Sydney, With Love, for which she has finished shooting.

Aish’s 10 Crore endorsment deal

We are very keen to know if Ashwarya will be returning to the film industry and if she is keen on taking her filmy career ahead. However, we hear that the actress is soon going to make her comeback on screen. She has reportedly signed an endorsement deal with an Indian jewelry brand for a staggering amount of Rs.10 crore.

Rumors had it that Ashwarya has decided to play a mom for the rest of her life, bidding good bye to the film industry. However, with the actress having signed the endorsement deal, all rumors are now put to rest.

News has it that her dad in law will also be a part of the jewelry advertisements. An official announcement is yet to be made.

Aishwarya Rai will also make her presence felt at the Cannes film fest, this year as the brand ambassador for L’Oreal.
