Bollywood actresses seem to be getting more and more attention worldwide.
And since they are getting attention, that gets the notice of Hollywood.
Here are some of the big Bollywood actresses that are either thinking about going to Hollywood, have already gone there, or are rumored to be going there.
By the way, in a reversal of this, Twilight star Kristen Stewart is not going to Bollywood to star in Panni as was earlier rumored.
It seems there was a battle heating up between Slumdog Millionaire's Freida Pinto and former Miss World and India's most successful actress Aishwarya Rai.
Rumor had it that both were being considered for the Bond girl in the next James Bond film.
But this battle may all be for naught, as the next Bond film has been suspended indefinitely and has been shelved.
The sequel (so far only known as Bond 23) was scheduled for release in late 2011 or in 2012 to coincide with the franchise's 50th anniversary.
Eon Productions' parent company MGM is in a financial mess right now, so we may never know if Ash or Freida would have won out.
But all is not lost in Hollywood for Bollywood.
British-born Indian actress Jiah Khan maybe headed to Tinsel Town.
It's rumored that Jiah may be involved in two international projects based out of Hollywood.
A Bollywood actresses that has been spending a lot of time in Hollywood, Mallika Sherawat, has gotten another feather in her cap in the US.
She recently won the the 2008 Renaissance Artist Award at the Multicultural Motion Picture Association’s Diversity Awards.
In the past, actresses like Salma Hayek, Halle Berry, and Monica Belluci have won the award.
After this, starring in Hisss, Love, Barack and getting a Honorary Citizenship in Los Angeles, I wonder if Mallika will ever return to India?
