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.”
Karan Johar is Back With A Star Studded Cast For ‘Takht’
Karan Johar announced his upcoming film Takht set to release in 2020. The film features a star studded cast that includes Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. Karan used Twitter to provide an insight into the story line.
An incredible story embedded in history…
An epic battle for the majestic Mughal throne…
A story of a family, of ambition, of greed, of betrayal, of love & of succession…
TAKHT is about WAR for LOVE….@dharmamovies @apoorvamehta18 pic.twitter.com/BQg6SvdFfb
— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) August 9, 2018
Takht is labelled as a historical film which comes after the previous film Padmaavat, that was released earlier this year and caused a stir in the country.
Takht is a historical magnum opus about the Mughal Dynasty, a battle between brothers for the Mughal throne. The lead character is played by Ranveer Singh as Dara Shikoh and Vicky Kaushal as his brother, Aurangazeb. Kareena Kapoor will be starring as their sister Jahanara Begum and Alia Bhatt would be playing the lead love interest.
This film would be the third historical film for Ranveer Singh after Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani that were both blockbuster hits.
Karan Johar is well known for having a famed cast featured in his films, his previous hit Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featured Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Fawad Khan and Aishwarya Rai.
The cast members could not contain their excitement and went on to social media to talk about the film. Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt took to Twitter to announce their latest project and Janhvi Kapoor announced it on Instagram.
It was further announced that the screenplay is by Sumit Roy and dialogues by Hussain Haidry and Sumit Roy. It is unexpected for Karan to acknowledge the writers as the “heartbeat and soul of a film.” As writers require more recognition in Bollywood. Varun Grover (lyricist) and Neeraj Ghaywan (director) have been lobbying for writers getting the recognition they deserve by producers for a long time.
The Screenplay is by SUMIT ROY! Dialogues by HUSSAIN HAIDRY,SUMIT ROY! And thanks to @NotSoSnob for bringing these talents to us at @DharmaMovies ! An exciting journey ahead….WRITERS are the heartbeat and soul of a film! These gentlemen lead all the way…. pic.twitter.com/hyTucBmKaG
— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) August 9, 2018
Bhumi Pednekar shared her excitement regarding the magnum opus “It’s a great honour for me to be working such great actors and to be directed by a veteran. I am a very big Karan Johar fan ever since I was a child. So honestly, it’s very special feeling and it’s still sinking in. I am still dealing with it and I am just so nervous about the film.”
Farah Khan congratulated Karan Johar for the film via a tweet.

Are you as excited as we are to see Kareena Kapoor and Ranveer Singh share the screen?
Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor: Match Made in Heaven
They have the kind of love that has not been talked about, but is made for the movie screens. The real life love story of Anil Kapoor and his beautiful wife, Sunita Kapoor.
The Mr. India actor had a rocky start in the Bollywood industry, despite his father Surinder Kapoor, being a Bollywood film producer. Anil Kapoor used to look for jobs during the day and his friends used to help him find love at night.
When he came across Sunita Kapoor, a model, he had no way of getting in contact with her. Eventually, he found her contact number and decided to talk to her.
Upon being asked about how they met Anil Kapoor said: “I met her on the telephone, and fell in love with her voice. I feel shy and awkward when I speak about her, but I love speaking about her. She is wonderful she is beautiful; she is the best thing that has happened to me.”
He added, “Then eventually after speaking to each other for a few weeks, I met her and we became friends.”
The relationship deepened when Sunita and Anil started dating, Sunita would even cancel her modelling photoshoots in order to spend more time with Anil Kapoor. Sunita was an established and successful model. She constantly helped Anil with his career.
It was a rocky road to the ‘happily ever after.’ The couple had to fight for their love. After struggling for a while they managed to convince their parents. The struggle was still not over for the couple they had one more hurdle to cross- the Bollywood industry.
Everybody in the industry advised Anil Kapoor not to marry as his career was at an all-time high after his hit film Mashal (1984), and the marriage would end his career as an actor. In his words, “In those days the industry believed that the audience liked an actor only until he was unmarried. My well-wishers thus advised me not to get married else my career would be ruined. But then I asked myself, what is more, important to me, my relationship with my girlfriend whom I know for years or my career? I was puzzled. But then it struck me that I am in a love with such a beautiful girl and we have been together since 5 years and stuck together through thick and thin, and so marriage was paramount for me that time.”
Despite the obstacles, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor got married on 19 May, 1984.
They are proud parents of three children. Sonam Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor, and Harshvardhan Kapoor. Sonam Kapoor has been “As children, we got very little family time as dad liked mom to accompany him whenever he travelled. But whenever we did, it was awesome. It feels lovely to see how much he loves her.”
Anil Kapoor was rumoured to be having an affair with his co-star, Madhuri Dixit after their chemistry on screen. Anil laughed out these rumours claiming they were a publicity stunt. “I got a lot of opportunities to fall in love and out of it, as I worked with many beautiful stars, but I thought to myself whether I wanted 2 minutes of joy or a lifetime of happiness. I am extremely happy with Sunita.”
Fairy tales are real after all.
Kajal Aggarawal And Bollywood Stars Show How To Kiki
Kajal Aggarawal shows us how to do the #KikiChallenge in a safe way. The #KikiChallenge quickly become popular over the internet after Drake released his song In My Feelings from his latest album Scorpion. The #KikiChallenge is when a person dances to the song beside a moving car, while someone is filming it from the car. First the Tide Pod Challenge now this? I’m scared for this generation.
Kajal Aggarawal along with her co star Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas created awareness regarding this dangerous challenge. The actors use a wheelchair instead of a car and end their video with a safety message.
Joining in the bandwagon, better late and safer! Our very conscious version. किकी we लव you (but we love rules more) . . . . . . . . The madness we do on set while shooting an action sequence, with my Star of a partner-in-humour @sreenivasbellamkonda #kikichallenge #inmyfeelingschallenge @champagnepapi #trafficpolice #responsibledriving #responsiblecitizens #dontfollowrandomfads #notattheriskofyoursafety #andnocompromiseonsafetyofothers #allforgoodhumour Video @kishorekotumphotography Dj @apoorva_srinivasan
The Mumbai Police condemned this dangerous challenge by tweeting out their disapproval. The Police later punished three people for participating in the challenge. They got the offenders to clean up the police station.

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu, Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte
The first motion poster of AndhaDhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu just released! The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan co produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, is set to release on 5 October 2018.
Andha andhe ko rasta dikhaaye, toh phir andha kaun? #AndhaDhun produced by @Viacom18Movies & @MatchboxPix releases in cinemas near you on 5th October, 2018. @ayushmannk @radhika_apte #Tabu #SriramRaghavan @zeemusiccompany pic.twitter.com/PtHRzvflaX
— AndhaDhun (@AndhadhunFilm) August 17, 2018
Ayushmann Khurrana is moving away from his comfort zone after acting in romcoms such as Vicky Donor, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Meri Pyaari Bindu. He plays a blind pianist in this latest film.
“It (doing Andhadhun) was a deliberate decision. I think it is not important to reinvent yourself with every film. Actors probably take themselves too seriously thinking, ‘I have to be different in every film’. But more than seeing you differently, the audience wants to see you doing a different story. Apart from that, you can reinvent yourself after establishing yourself in a particular genre,” the actor said.
Oh it’s not easy when you have to match up to Sriram Raghavan’s string of badass film titles but we all gave it a try! Presenting #AndhaDhun! https://t.co/NlVTNA6dVO @andhadhunfilm @radhika_apte #Tabu #SriramRaghavan @Viacom18Movies @Matchboxpix @ZeeMusicCompany pic.twitter.com/javunbzlOq
— Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) June 19, 2018
The first look of the film will be revealed on soon. Andhadhun will be set in Pune and the shoot is almost complete. Talking about the film’s title, the director, Sriram Raghavan said, “We are punning with the title as Ayushmann plays a blind pianist. It goes well with the story too. We had a lot of options in our mind, including Shoot The Piano Player, but the producers weren’t keen on using an English title. I know the real word is ‘Andhadhund’, but the ‘D’ is silent for us.”
We are so excited to see Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte together! Are you?
Batti Gul Meter Chalu First Song Is Out. Listen To It Here!
After a long, long wait and lot of excitement, the maker of Batti Gul Meter Chalu just dropped Gold Tamba, the first song from the film. What makes this particular song so enticing is, despite the serious issue the film deals with, the makers could not help but add a peppy track to the mix.
When you getting gold why go for tamba? It’s a serious song.😜#GoldTambaSong 🎶🎶🎶 https://t.co/r21TxPgu2P #OutNow@ShraddhaKapoor @divyenndu @yamigautam @TSeries @itsBhushanKumar @ShreeNSingh @The_AnuMalik @AzizNakash @KuttiKalam @bgmcfilm pic.twitter.com/vJFu3s2AJa
— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) August 17, 2018
Gold Tamba, the first song, deviates a tad bit from the topic and gives one an idea of what not to expect from Batti Gul Meter Chalu. While the tune is peppy, what does not work for this particular song is the slapstick lingo used throughout the 2 odd minutes. Perhaps the only relief for this particular Shahid Kapoor number lies in the way it it has been picturised, amid the setting of a mela or a fair, with its colourful hues. It seems like Gold Tamba is a blend of Shahid’s previous songs like Saree Ke Fall Sa and Gandi Baat, while its music might also remind you of Jabra Fan from the film Fan. Listen to it here!
And it is here! The Gold |Tamba Song is out 🙃🤪 Playing it on the loop yet? Watch now! https://t.co/irSNEyjTsr #GoldTamba #OutNow @shahidkapoor @divyenndu @yamigautam @TSeries @itsBhushanKumar @ShreeNSingh @The_AnuMalik @AzizNakash @KuttiKalam @bgmcfilm pic.twitter.com/Z6KozdyWy4

Set in a small town in Uttarkhand, Batti Gul Meter Chalu addresses the issue of electricity theft and offloading issues faced by the rural areas of India. On a side note, do not miss the solid foundation of friendship the film is formed around. Apart from Shahid Kapoor, Batti Gul Meter Chalu also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautami and is scheduled to hit the screens on 21 September, 2018.
