Avoiding media glare and limelight, Hollywood superstar DiCaprio paid a quiet visit to the Taj Mahal, Agra in October. The 40-year-old 'Inception' star was in India to shoot an untitled documentary on climate change.
The actor, who starred alongside Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan in 2013 film 'The Great Gatsby', spent around two hours and showed keen interest in the fascinating history of the 17th century white marble mausoleum, a world heritage site.
The monument's beauty perhaps also allured Orlando Bloom as the 'Pirates of The Caribbean' star made his maiden India visit.
His trip was, however, marred by a visa issue. He was initially turned away because he did not have a valid visa. The actor was finally able to enter India after the External Affairs Ministry intervened and granted him a visa.
It was a double dose of Hollywood beauties in India as actresses Eva Longoria and Nicole Kidman came visiting here.
After surprising Delhi fans with an impromptu gig at an eating joint in July, American musician Chris Martin was back to India with his band Coldplay, this time to shoot a video with kids here.
According to the photographs that surfaced online, Martin and other Coldplay members Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion were seen playing holi with the children.
In July, Martin was in the country for a charity event for The Global Poverty Project, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to seeing an end to extreme poverty by 2030.
He was joined on-stage by Indian composer-singer Vishal Dadlani for the jamming session in Delhi.
Kristian Nairn, who is famous for saying just one word Hodor in globally popular show 'Game of Thrones', was a guest at the Comic Con festival here. The actor was surprised and delighted to know how popular he and his TV show was in India.
It was also an India calling for 'Lord of the Rings' star Elijah Wood, 'Terminator' actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Guns n Roses' fame musician Slash.

Hollywood biggies in India is surely a sign that India is becoming increasingly popular with the international artists and they are recognising the value of Indian market and locations.
