Priyanka Choprahas been one of the most talented Bollywood actresses of all times. And not just Bollywood, she has now spread her wings and become a global icon. She is also the UNICEF ambassador and it is because of this reason that she visited the Rohingya camps on her visit to Bangladesh. In fact, she spent time with the kids in the camp and also appealed for help so that the children can receive more help.Also see:13 Pictures Of Priyanka Chopra That Prove She's World's Most Beautiful Woman!Priyanka had posted a series of pictures with captions on her social media handles.When Mansur Ali, 12 yrs old, first came to the Child Friendly Space (CFS) at the Balukhali camp, he was only drawing scenes of bloodshed and violence. Helicopters shooting at him and his friends playing soccer... or his village and home being on fire with burning bodies all around him.. Today, his drawings reflect a more hopeful story, one we would like all these children to have. Since the #Rohingya children have arrived in Cox’s Bazar, they have been living in overcrowded camps with no real place that to call their own. Imagine a space that lets you forget your troubles and be a child again... even if its only for just a few hours a day. For the Rohingya children, over 300,000, in the camps in Bangladesh this is the only space that allows them to be kids. These Child Friendly Spaces created by @unicef give kids access to art, music, dance, sport, and counselling etc. The space has often proved to be very therapeutic, helping these kids deal with the horrific situations they faced.. the @unicef aid workers work tirelessly to make sure these children find their spirit again. It doesn’t matter where a child is from or what his or her circumstances are... NO child deserves a life without hope for the future. The world needs to care. We need to care.

In the second half of 2017, the world saw horrific images of ethnic cleansing from the Rakhine State of Myanmar(Burma). This violence drove nearly 700,000 Rohingya across the border into Bangladesh - 60% are children! Many months later they are still highly vulnerable, living in overcrowded camps with no idea when or where they will ever belong...even worse, when they will get their next meal. AND...as they finally start to settle and feel a sense of safety, monsoon season looms...threatening to destroy all that they’ve built so far. This is an entire generation of children that have no future in sight. Through their smiles I could see the vacancy in their eyes. These children are at the forefront of this humanitarian crisis, and they desperately need our help. The world needs to care. We need to care. These kids are our future.

At least the reasons they had put were so shameful and lamentable. Here's the flack that she received on social media for her visit to the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh and the reason for the trolls:She was trolled because she did not visit Kashmiri Pandits:Why is it always that a celebrity has to explain what she is doing and if she is supporting one cause, she is reminded of another. In fact, the trolls did not stop here. It was called a 'selfie stunt', aimed at increasing followers!Well, the point that these trollers miss is that she is a global icon who already has followers all over the world and that she does not need to do this!It did not stop just here. She was said to be supporting a community who would turn out to be terrorists in future. Some even asked why did she 'sell' herself! Also, the need to support another cause always popped in!Just one word for trollers- get a life and try and be someone close to the stature of Priyanka Chopra!

We have all seen the trailer of Veerey Di Wedding and to be honest we loved it. It is gorgeous, snazzy, full of swagger and honestly, it is not every day you see a group of gorgeous women in Bollywood cursing like a sailor and dismantling orthodox notions of what women want and how women behave, one frame at a time.Having said it, it is not the best-kept secret that the trailer of the Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor starrer has a little too many similarities with the Hollywood films Sex and The City both part 1 and 2 and thus the trailer gives away a lot of the story. We by no means claim that this is exactly what the story of the film is going to be like, but just putting forward the ideas that the trailer and the song give out. Do not grab us by the throat, if it is any different!From the trailer its apparent that the film revolves around four friends who are trying to figure the many facets of love, life, relationships. The film is set against the backdrop of one of the friend’s weddings where three of her other friends are attending.Going by trailer and songs we are the friends will try to find their grounds in life and relationship. Kareena’s character Kalindi Puri will probably call off the marriage due to the circus that surrounds it but then finally go ahead with it but on her own terms, Sonam’s character will finally find it in her to be happy with herself in life and stop dating random men and running from commitments. Swara’s character Sakshi, who looks like a total badass will probably find a life of her own that is independent of her husband and the marital duties she seems to hate and Shikha Talsania’s character will get her parents to accept her husband and find romance back in life.Somewhere during the middle of the film, there will also be a fight between these girls, but their sisterhood will probably precede over petty difference and each of the girls would cope up to the elusive concept of coming of age and adulating.

What’s Bollywood without its song and dance numbers? It is perhaps one aspect of Hindi films that sets it apart from any other fil industries in the world. Thus it is not surprising that when it Hindi films song and dance and thechemistry of the actorsin the dance that we remember the most.While these dance moments are immortalized in the films and now thanks to Youtube we can re-live the songs anytime, anywhere, still there is a strange sense of excitement whenever the cast of a dance number come together to re-create and re-live the songs live for us.Here are a few videos where stars re-created their favorite songs and left us in complete awe!Madhuri Dixit and Renuka ShahaneNo wonder this video of the two actresses breaking into an impromptu dance from the sets of Bucket List has gone viral. Madhuri and Renuka who have collaborated for the Marathi film Bucket List is seen doing the routine from Lo Chali Mai song from the all-time blockbuster film Hum Aapke Hai Koun, where they played on-screen sistersSalman Khan and Madhuri DixitUndoubtedly one of the biggest hits of Indian filmy music, Salman and Madhuri re-creating Didi Tera Dewar Deewana from Hum Aapke Hai Koun on the sets of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa was perhaps one of our favorite moments from the show.Madhuri Dixit and Anil KapoorOne of our favorite on-screen jodis of Bollywood, Madhuri and Anil also did not shy away from re-creating some of their most iconic songs together on the sets of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa.Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek BachchanandAishwarya Rai BachchanAs if three of them combined in the song was not enough to blow our minds! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan was joined by none other than Amitabh Bachchan to re-create the superhit Kajra Re on the stage of IIFA. Since then we have seen a lot of jaw-dropping performances on IIFa but nothing quite measured up to this.Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali KhanWho would have thought that after 25 years Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan would re-create the epic ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ on the stage of Great Indian Laughter Challenge. You can skip to 2.21 to see the fun commence. Thank us later!

Even though nobody can claim thatKunal Khemuwas a huge success in Bollywood, he can still claim to marry a legit princess. How many Bollywood actors can do that now!Aamir KhanYet another Bollywood star who can boast of a royal ‘sasural’ is none other thanAamir Khan. His wife Kiran Rao, is from the royal family of Wanaparthy, Telangana.Special Mention: Zaheer KhanOk, we know that Zaheer does not have much to do with Bollywood, but since this is yet another love story to have cricket, Bollywood and royalty all entwined it had to be on our l list. Zaheer became a royal consort when hemarried Sagarika Ghatgewho is from a royal lineage of Kolhapur.
