When a 17 year old girl won the Miss World Pageant in the year 2000, the whole world was left spellbound. How it was possible that a girl so young could reach the top without any grooming or training and achieve such incredible success, was a fact not many could understand. Priyanka Chopra, also known as PeeCee, is a self made woman who has time and time again proven to the world that it is not things like connections or having a strong man behind you that make you successful, but who you are and what the world sees you as that makes you great. As the gorgeous lady is all set to tie the knot with American heartthrob and singer, Nick Jonas, here’s looking at all the times PeeCee proved us her worth.
1. Her choice of movies
From Aitraaz (2004) to Baywatch (2017,) PeeCee has done more number of unconventional roles than any other actress in the industry. All her characters have a strong sense of self, a trait which is loud and clear by the way Priyanka Chopra acted in these movies. In fact, even in her lighter movies (Dostana and Dil Dhadakne Do,) Chopra made sure she made a strong point through her character. In fact, it is fair to say the lady has picked movies that appeal not only to a large target audience, but to the emotional side of people as well.
2. Her stance on being true to yourself
Time and time again, Priyanka Chopra has said things that show how true she is to herself as a woman first and then, an actress. From buying her own diamonds, to breaking the glass ceiling, PeeCee’s goals are set quite high in life. So true is this that when PeeCee was asked where she saw herself ten years ago, her answer was simple and to the point: “To global domination.” Well, with her fingers dipped into the delicious cookie jar of Hollywood, it is safe to say this prophecy might very well come true.
3. When she told us to listen to our heart
The first time PeeCee surprised the world was when she played a negative role in a film like Aitraaz, despite being a new face in the industry. It was the success of this film that reinforced PeeCee’s policy of listening to your heart. Recently, her mother said PeeCee was so confident about who she was as a person, that she lost more than ten films just because she didn’t like the way she felt about them.
4. Learn to be you
A true risk taker right from the very beginning, Priyanka Chopra taught us taking risks is not a bad thing at all. From playing negative roles at the very beginning of her career to taking up roles that broke stereotypes, PeeCee has always done what she thought worked for her, showing everyone around there was power in taking risks and being true to yourself!
5. Be strong and bold
Whether it is the things she says, the people she dates (now marrying soon,) the clothes she wears or the movies she picks, everything about Priyanka Chopra makes a statement. She is here, she is now and she is more than ready to voice her opinion when needed. In Bollywood, when one is constantly watched, judged and ridiculed for their public statements, this trait is quite a unique one.
From being one of the most vocal actresses in the industry and side stepping the double edged sword of nepotism, PeeCee has shown everyone the importance of living life on your own terms. If you think we missed we missed out any other lessons from Priyanka Chopra, comment and let us know!
Looking At Riteish Deshmukh’s Best Performances, On His Birthday
Riteish Deshmukh, a man known for all his rib tickling acting skills, also has other talents. Apart from being a great actor, Riteish is also an architect and is known for his eye for detail. As the multi talented actor turns a year older today, here is looking at some of the best movies Riteish has been a part of since the beginning!
1. Ek Villain
Perhaps one of the best performances by Riteish in his career, Ek Villain put Riteish on the map of talented actors. Despite being part of a film with a weak script, this particular actor still managed to pull his weight and give a brilliant performance by playing the role of a psychopathic killer to perfection!
Despite Banjo being a let down, the movie was still noteworthy because of the action packed scenes which were delivered by Riteish Deshmukh. Not only did he embrace the character completely, he could also bring a special touch to the role by bringing out his Maharashtrian roots!
3. Darna Zaroori Hai
Despite the fact that Riteish acted with Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in his career, Darna Zaroori Hai was a truly captivating watch. From the way Riteish delivered his dialogues to the way he made his presence felt in every scene, Riteish’s performance was a class act through and through!
4. Kyaa Kool Hai Hum
Playing the role of a man who always found himself at the end of everything gone wrong, Riteish nailed the to the tee with his brilliant acting skills! Not only was he really great in the first part, his performance in the sequel was just as rib tickling brilliant as well!
Playing the role of an ameteur conman who trains under a master con artist, Riteish Deshmukh’s character was extremely convincing to say the least! Not many can play a role with such consistency and ease, as Riteish did in Bluffmaster!
6. Apna Sapna Money Money
Another movie where Riteish played the role of a conman with seasoned brilliance, Apna Sapna Money Money saw Riteish up his performance by several notches! Definitely a movie which made everyone watch it not just for the fun storyline, but also for the amazing acting skills shown by Riteish Deshmukh!
As Riteish Deshmukh turns 40 today, here’s wishing the talented man a very happy birthday and a long and happy life!
Simmba Song, Tere Bin Is Now Out!
After Aankh Marey, the Simmba team is back with yet another beautiful song titled Tere Bin! The second song from this movie is quite unlike the first, in the sense that it is a romantic track which will make you want to root for Ranveer Singh’s and Sara Ali Khan’s characters!
Tere Bin is a remake of the song Tere Bin Nahi Lagda Dil Mera Dholna by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and just like the original, this song is also just as soulful. Filmed in the scenic Switzerland, the second track from Simmba takes one down the nostalgic road of the 1990s. Listen to the track here!

— Ranveer Singh (@RanveerOfficial) December 14, 2018
Written by Rashmi Virag and sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Asees Kaur, the revised version of the song reminds one of the classic songs in Yash Chopra’s films, where the lead pairs were seen romancing each other in picturesque hill stations. Simmba, a remake of Jr. NTR’s super hit movie, Temper, sees Ranveer Singh playing the role of a corrupt cop who changes his ways of life after a major incident takes place.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, Simmba sees Sara Ali Khan’s character playing the love interest of Ranveer Singh’s character. Simmba will also star Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana in negative roles. Simmba will not only have Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starring together for the first time, it will also see Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh working together for the first time as well! If you missed the previous song from the film, listen to it here!

All About Bollywood And Fashion In 2018
Like every year, this past year in Bollywood was all about setting new trends, especially when it came to fashion. From bringing back jackets and ponchos, to making silver chic again, this last year has been exciting to say the least! Here’s everything which happened with fashion in Bollywood!
1. All that glitters is gold!
Move over bright reds and maroons, the year is for gold and ivory colours, at least when it comes to wedding clothes and styles. From Anamika Khanna (who designed an entire collection titled “Reinventing Nudes,”) to Jayanti Reddy and Payal Singhal, everyone loves these colours on them! In fact, even the celebrities are loving these new shades.

2. Monochrome is the order of the season
While the last year was all about mixing colours and shades, the year 2018 was about black and white. Surprisingly, even the Lakme Fashion Week saw a large presence of these colours, with designers from Nikhil Thampi to Shantanu and Nikhil showcasing these colours in their collection!

3. All about the pastels
This past year in fashion is all about embracing and accepting the softer shades of life. With large splashes of blues and pinks, designers like Anushree Reddy and Gaurang Shah dedicated entire collections to these colours! In fact, pastels are the only shades which are always around, no matter what.
4. All about the jackets, capes and ponchos
If you thought the time for jackets, capes and ponchos was long gone, then think again. From sheer capes to embellished ponchos and to embroidered dresses, this year was all about experimenting with styles from the good old days. If you are thinking of upping your wardrobe game, then you should definitely check out some uber cool styles by Rahul Mishra.

5. Silver is the flavour of the season
All that glitters this year in fashion is not gold, but silver! In fact, it was such a brilliant colour and so loved by everyone, that even Karan Johar sported this colour with pride! Did you know, the ever flamboyant director dyed his hair silver for the Falguni Shane Peacock Collection? How chic is that?
6. Flowers for the win
Flowers may wither and die, but as a style statement, they are always in vogue. From Anita Dongre who took inspiration from “a garden of flowers” for her new collection, to Julie Shah who presented a new collection called Gulab Baug, all the designers are embracing this trend with a renewed vigour!

Zero Song Husn Parcham Released
After a long, long wait, the makers of Zero finally released Husn Parcham, the most anticipated song from the Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma starrer. With a focus on Katrina Kaif’s character, Babita, the song is glamour, glitz and gold all the way through!
Composed by the musical duo, Ajay and Atul, this song was sung by Bhoomi Trivedi and Raja Kumari! The third song from Zero, this new version sees Babita sporting a retro avatar! In the video of Husn Parcham, Katrina Kaif is seen in multiple looks. Sporting a knotted Bobby blouse, bronze curly hair in one look and a red saree in another, everything about Katrina is exquisite in this song. Listen to it here!
Deewano ki ye bheed ab na hogi kam,
Aa gayi hai Babita Kumari lehraane Husn Parcham!
The most sizzling song of the year #HusnParcham out now!https://t.co/kgrcLJ72jV#KatrinaKaif @anushkasharma @aanandlrai @Mdzeeshanayyub @BoscoMartis @ajayatulonline @irshad_kamil
— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) December 12, 2018
With Babita grooving to the beats in various settings, this new track sees a glimpse of this character in an avatar like this, which is not going to be shown again during the rest of the movie.
— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) December 11, 2018
In fact, Katrina said so herself during a previous interview. “This is the only time you will see Babita, my character, in a glamorous avatar in the film.” She further added, “In reality, Babita is going through the darkest phase in her life. Her relationship is over. Her career is on the downhill, and she is dejected and vulnerable.”
With lyrics by Irshad Kamil, Husn Parcham was the third track after Mera Naam Tu and Issaqbaazi, which featured Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. A story about a dwarf (Bauaa, played by Shah Rukh khan,) falling in love, Zero is scheduled to release on the 21st of December this year!
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
— emraan hashmi (@emraanhashmi) December 12, 2018
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!
