The secret to successful, beautiful women? Their witty answers and quick responses. If you thought our Bollywood Babes won their coveted titles just by being pretty, then think again. Here are 10 people who showed us it was their answers that won them the crown!
1. Sushmita Sen – Miss India Universe, 1994
Question: “What do you know about the textile heritage of your country? How old has it been?”
Answer: “Well, I think it started off with Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi. It’s gone a long way since then, but the basics of the textile heritage lie in there.”
2. Aishwarya Rai – Miss India World, 1994
Question: “If you have to look for qualities in a husband, would you look for the qualities in Ridge Forrester from Bold & Beautiful or in Mason Capwell from Santa Barbara? Why?”
Answer: “The qualities I would look for in a man, between the two characters that you’ve given to me, would be in Mason. Though they do share a lot in common, from what we get to see, Mason does have a very caring side to him and a terrific sense of humour. And that really gels with my character.”
3. Priyanka Chopra – Miss India World, 2000
Question: “If you were a police officer in the garden of Eden, who would you punish for the original sin: Adam, Eve, or the serpent?”
Answer: “If I was the police officer in the garden of Eden, I would punish Satan, the serpent, because I believe that evil is instigated, not created. Eve thought Satan was right. She believed him. Let us get a moral from this: to decipher between good and bad, without being biased.”
4. Gul Panag – Miss India Universe, 1999
Question: “In the context of the recent controversy, if you were Chelsea, what is the single most important advice you as a daughter would give to your parents Bill and Hillary Clinton, and why?”
Answer: “The most important piece of advice I would give my parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, would be to stand by each other because, now is the time the world is testing us and we should put aside our differences and put up a brave front because family is the single most important unit.”
5. Celina Jaitley – Miss India Universe, 2001
Question: “Let’s consider two often said quotes: 1. Fools seldom differ, and 2. Great minds think alike. Which one do you believe, and why?”
Answer: “I believe that great minds think alike because intelligence is like a triple bond which joins minds to vibe at the same level. The higher the IQ, the greater the bonding.”
6. Tanushree Dutta – Miss India Universe, 2004
Question: “Some believe that too much of everything is as bad as too little. What is your opinion?”
Answer: “Yes, it is true that too much of everything is as bad as little, because satisfaction and gracious acceptance is the keyword for a happy and peaceful life. Too much takes the satisfaction away.”
7. Neha Dhupia – Miss India Universe, 2002
Question: “If given an opportunity to ask the judges a question, what would you ask?”
Answer: “I have only one question to ask everyone out here at this stage. When the world is seeking peace, why are we fighting over one border line? Do you think it’s possible for each one of us to not live as Indians and Pakistanis, and to start living like human beings?”
8. Manushi Chillar – Miss India World, 2017
Question: “You have spent 30 days with your fellow contestants from 30 states of India. What learnings would you take back with you?”
Answer: “I think these 30 days that I’ve spent at …with my fellow contestants have been the most dynamic days of my life and the only thing that was certain about the whole experience was uncertainty. The one belief that I would take back with me would be that I can change the world, because when I entered Miss India, it was only passion and a purpose, but through the journey, I had a vision. That vision in my head and the belief that I can change the world is something that I’m going to take back with me.”
Cheat India Trailer Released
Cheat India, Emraan Hashmi’s first production, finally has a trailer to its name. While Hashmi and team gave us a series of posters and teasers as an idea of what to expect from the film, the just dropped trailer tell us exactly what the film is about.
With Emraan Hashmi in the lead, Cheat India highlights the other side of the Indian education system. The longer than 2 minutes trailer shows Emraan playing the role of a man who says there is nothing wrong in taking money from the rich if it helps the poor get to a better place. Watch the trailer here.
On your ‘marks’, get set, CHEAT…..
The #CheatIndiaTrailer you’ve been waiting for: https://t.co/6Rayx2lIol@parveenshahani @itsBhushanKumar @tanuj_garg @EllipsisEntt @TSeries @EmraanHFilms @atulkasbekar @bangdu @s_dhan13 @khannasunny #CheatIndia #NakalMeinHiAkalHai pic.twitter.com/i7KoFY1tC2

Gripping, tight and to the point, the trailer shows Hashmi’s character playing the role of a middleman. Taking money from the rich and paying members from the lower factions of society to write exams, Hashmi’s character is unapologetic with this scam. Moving far away from the cliches a story like this can have, Cheat India tells a story many of us have only read in the papers or seen on the news.
The trailer is extremely well made and makes the most of the time in hand, with Emraan Hashmi moving away from being the eternal “serial kisser.” The no nonsense trailer is a relief and quite an eye opener, giving one hope this film is going to be a refreshing change in the current time in the world of Bollywood movies.
Directed by Soumik Sen, this particular Emraan Hashmi starrer shows the world the underworld side of education and how people can go to any length to get what they want. Co produced by the makers of Tumhari Sulu and Neerja, Cheat India is scheduled to hit the screens on 25th January, 2019!
Bollywood Movies Making It Hard To Wait For 2019
Move over 2018, your reign is coming to an end. With the new year coming upon us, it is only befitting to bid adieu to some of the truly brilliant films released in the past year to welcome some amazing movies in the new year! From Kesari to Brahmastra to Super 30, here’s our list of movies you have to watch in 2019!
Perhaps one of Karan Johar’s most ambitious projects to date, not only does Brahmastra have an impressive cast, it also has a wonderful storyline. Directed by Ayan Mukherji, this film is going to be released in multiple parts and is going to have Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead roles. Touted to be a romantic fairy tale with a supernatural spin to it, the first part of Brahmastra is scheduled to hit the screens on 15th August, 2019.
With Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the lead in this political thriller, Thackeray talks about the life of Bal Thackeray, the founder of the Indian political party, Shiv Sena. While not much has been revealed about what to expect from this film, with such an exciting script and lead, the movie definitely seems to be promising. Thackeray is scheduled to hit the screens during January next year!
Starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles, Kesari tells the story of the Battle of Saragarhi. With a focus on the life and times of Havildar Ishar Singh, who fought hard to earn the respect of his daughter, Kesari tells a compelling story. Kesari is scheduled to hit the screens on 22nd March next year!
4. Super 30
While one would have thought the biopics trend was for this year and the last, Bollywood seems to think otherwise. A biopic about the life of Anand Kumar, a professor credited for making the dreams come true of those who could not afford to study, Super 30 stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead role. With debutant Mrunal Thakur playing the female lead, the film is scheduled to hit the screens during January 2019!
5. Hera Pheri 3
If you are an avid Bollywood films’ fan, then you cannot be more excited for the release of the third installment in the Hera Pheri series. With most of the original cast like Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal, this new part will see a smattering of new faces! While the release date hasn’t been finalised yet, the excitement levels certainly are at an all time high!
6. Gully Boy
Based on the lives of the extremely popular rappers, Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy, who are primarily known for their song, Mere Gully Mein, Gully Boy is one of the most anticipated films for the coming year. With Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, the movie is scheduled to hit the screens on Valentine’s Day next year. You know what you are going to do then, right?
With its fair share of ups and downs, Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika is finally scheduled to hit the screens next year. Based on the epic life of Rani of Jhansi, the movie sees Kangana play not only the role of the lead actress, but also the role of a director for the first time in her career. Originally scheduled to hit the screens at the end of this year, Manikarnika is finally going to release on the 25th of January, 2019!
With so many films to look forward to, 2019 is definitely going to be an exciting for Bollywood. What movie are you waiting to watch? Comment and let us know!
Cast: Sara Ali Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Pooja Gor and Nitish Bhardwaj
Director: Abhishek Kapoor
Based on a love story that comes together in the light of a tragic life altering disaster, Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath brings together multiple issues (love through religions and natural calamities to name a few,) weaving a beautiful tale toward the end. Centered around the cloud burst and the subsequent flash floods of 2013 in Uttarakhand, Kedarnath attempts at bridging the gap caused by religion in the wake of a natural calamity.
Mansoor Khan, a local porter (played by Sushant Singh Rajput,) falls in love with Mukku, a Hindu girl (played by Sara Ali Khan) visiting the holy temple of Kedarnath. While Mukku’s and Mansoor’s parents play the disapproving parents of children who fall in love despite all that is against them, Mansoor plays the man who proves that he doesn’t care about all the odds very obviously stacked against him.
With the devastating floods playing one of the key elements in this particular movie, the strong love between the two leads (with their own fair share of drama,) makes for the rest of the parts. As Sara Ali Khan’s debut film, Kedarnath could not have worked better in bringing out the best in her. Another point that works really well for this Abhishek Kapoor directorial is the fact, it proves love exists no matter what. In fact, one of the key points in this movie is the way Kapoor shows Muslim porters living in harmony in a town where Shiva is the main idol.
While Sara Ali Khan plays the girl who just cannot stop talking, Sushant Singh Rajput plays the role of an unconventional hero. With seasoned ease and skill, Sushant Singh Rajput shows us the many layers involved in a sensitive issue such as love between people belonging to different religions. Although Abhishek Kapoor seems to be constantly revising a story already told multiple times in the past, Kedarnath has its own positives in the way story is treated. While the story may be one which has already been told, the film is refreshing and is worth a watch!
Simmba Song, Aankh Marey, Is Here
“Oh God! One more remake!” is Karan Johar’s opening line in Aankh Marey (a remake of the song from the 1996 movie, Tere Mere Sapne,) the just dropped song from Ranveer Singh’s and Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film, Simmba! While the last few years were all about the makeovers and revised versions, this old favourite has been remade quite well! Unlike the other remakes which released this year, Aankh Marey seems fresh and entertaining, without destroying the feels of the original song.
Written by Shabbir Ahmed, this song opens to Karan Johar dancing to the beats. Moving through the song, there are different scenes with Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh grooving to the tunes of this peppy number. Listen to it here.
Old-skool jam <—> Nu-skool cred !!!
🕺🏻💃🏻 #AankhMarey 😜 https://t.co/ZxYk70w5x1#RohitShetty @karanjohar #SaraAliKhan @SonuSood @RSPicturez @RelianceEnt @DharmaMovies @SimmbaTheFilm @TSeries @iAmNehaKakkar @MikaSingh @tanishkbagchi @Musicshabbir @azeem2112 #KumarSanu #Simmba
— Ranveer Singh (@RanveerOfficial) December 6, 2018
The makers also give us a special performance in the middle of the song! While there was talk about a special appearance, not many would have thought it was going to be made by the Golmaal cast! Halfway through the song, Kunal Kemmu, Shreyas Talpade and Tushar Kapoor join Arshad Warsi in paying respects to the original song from Tere Mere Sapne. While the original version of this song was sung by Kumar Sanu and Kavita Krishnamurthy, this new song is sung by Neha Kakkar, Mika Singh and Kumar Sanu.
Simmba is a remake of the 2015 Tollywood super hit movie, Temper. Directed by Rohit Shetty, this film sees Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan playing key roles. Furthermore, Simmba also sees Sonu Sood in a very strong negative role. Simmba is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and is scheduled to hit the screens on the 28th of December this year!
Uri Trailer Released
After keeping us all on tenterhooks with stills and teasers from Uri: The Surgical Strike, Vicky Kaushal’s next film, the makers finally dropped the trailer a little while ago. Although the teaser and the posters had already set the anticipation levels quite high, the trailer increased the hype all the more.
The just dropped trailer tells the story of how the Indian Army conducted a series of surgical strikes in retaliation to the alleged attacks by a terror group from Pakistan in Uri, a district in Kashmir. Watch the trailer here and now!
— Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) December 5, 2018
The trailer opens with Yami Gautami (playing the role of an intelligence officer) interrogating a suspect. The two and a half minute trailer then moves forward to show Vicky Kaushal training his team and delivering a hard hitting speech which makes his soldiers fight for India with renewed vigour. The line, “Indian Army didn’t start this war, but we will bloody hell finish it,” forms the central crux of this thrilling movie and is seen resonating throughout the trailer as well.
It’s refreshing to see Bollywood deliver such a hard hitting and intense drama after such a long time. With Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautami and Paresh Rawal in the lead roles, Uri: The Surgical Strike promises to be an exciting watch, to say the least. Directed and written by Aditya Dhar, Uri: The Surgical Strike has all the leads putting their best foot forward.
Speaking about Uri: The Surgical Strike, Dhar earlier said, “This is the story of what happened in those eleven days. It’s an honour and very reassuring to be backed by Ronnie Screwvala and to execute on this vision and what we believe is an engaging and thrilling story inspired by this true-life incident.” Uri: The Surgical Strike is scheduled to hit the screens on the 11th of January, 2019!
