A number of international stars and actors from Hollywood are being drawn towards Bollywood, the biggest film producing industry in the world. The trend isn't a recent one though.

A number of international stars and actors from Hollywood are being drawn towards Bollywood, the biggest film producing industry in the world. Hollywood's sensuous Bo Derek, Baywatch girl Brande Rodericks have already been there and done that. Now it is the turn of British model Sophie Dahl and actor Toby Stephens to be part of Bollywood films.

While Bo Derek was Amitabh Bachchan's dream woman (even if it was in a blink-and-missed-you special appearance) in Kaizad Gustad's Boom, Brande Rodericks made her Bollywood debut swinging to a raunchy number opposite newcomer Ritesh Deshmukh in a Vashu Bhagnani's Out Of Control. The movie, a bilingual in Hindi and English, cast Brande as Ritesh's second wife. Not only did the Baywatch blonde try and steal the man from his first wife (incidentally, the film was a remake of Bhagnani's earlier hit, Saajan Chale Sasural) she also was persuaded to drape the saree and other Indian outfits in some reels of the film.

Also ready to open her Bollywood account is the British supermodel Sophie Dahl. Sophie will be seen acting in a movie titled King of Bollywood, to be directed by Piyush Jha. She plays a news correspondent in the film that also stars multi- talented Om Puri in the role of an aging actor.

Add to the list one of Britain's sought-after young actors, Toby Stephens, who will play the friend-turned-foe to Aamir Khan in Ketan Mehta's The Rising. Toby, 34, the second son of Dame Maggie Smith and late Sir Robert Stephens, is a Royal Shakespeare Company trained actor who recently played Kim Philby in the BBC TV series, The Cambridge Spies.
