On the occasion of International Nurses Day, Bollywood stars turned cheerleaders and rooted for our frontline heroes, continuing their battle against Covid-19. Taking to social media, stars from Abhishek Bachchan to Sanjay Dutt, Sidharth Malhotra to Randeep Hooda, Richa Chadha and many others, banded together to honour these heroes for their tireless service and laud their efforts, especially during these trying times.
Widening that smile on our face was our Bhaijaan, Salman Khan. The actor got rather chatty about taking people home. Before anyone jumps the gun, he was just talking about taking his own fictional characters home. While the ones promoting good deeds are always welcomed into Galaxy Apartments, he said Radhe and Chulbul Pandey would never make it through the doors. He said that if he walked around his house like either of the two characters, his father would probably hit him, his mom would slap him and his siblings would be embarrassed by him.
Moving on… Priyanka Chopra proved she was just like the rest of us when she admitted that Billie Eilish’s photoshoot stopped her right in her tracks. Priyanka gushed about the 19-year-old and her stunning photoshoot rocking corsets, stockings, suspenders and et al saying, “I just stopped and stared for a second. She looks unbelievable, she is so beautiful.”
Any Swifties in the house? Because you are not gonna want to miss Taylor Swift embracing her desi side in a stunning lehenga. The star accepted her Global Icon crown at the Brit Award and chose to do so in a stunning, shimmery sequin number. While Videsi press dubbed the elaborate ensemble as a skirt and cropped top, desi Swifties knew better and went into overdrive on social media educating everyone that Queen Taylor was in a lehenga.
In our filmy update for the day, we have Aamir Khan and Naga Chaitanya dropping some deets about ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. Rumour has it that Aamir roped in action director Parvez Shaikh to design an extensive war sequence for the film to be shot in Ladakh. The Kargil War forms a crucial part of the story and Mr Perfectionist wanted the director to plan a huge battlefield scene. Buzz is that South star Naga Chaitanya, who plays a crucial role will join Aamir on the front lines.
