The new feature launched in the US for mobile devices allows her fans to find answers to questions about Priyanka coming directly from the star herself.

For example, if someone wants to know how many languages Priyanka speaks and types the question on Google Search, the fan might get the answer directly from the celebrity in the “form of selfie-style videos with a uniquely personal, authentic and delightful touch”, according to Google.

Priyanka is, however, not the only celebrity that Google has roped in for the launch of the feature.

“We’re piloting this feature on mobile with answers from Priyanka Chopra, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, Allison Williams, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo and Dominique Ansel,” Rami Banna, Product Manager at Google said in a blog post on Thursday.

Whether you are wondering what Gina Rodriguez’s pet peeve is, what movie changed Nick Jonas’ life, or want Kenan Thompson’s input on what makes something funny, these self-recorded videos share their perspectives and answers to some of their devotees’ most-asked questions.

“In the next few months, you may see more videos as you search for your favourite personalities,” Banna said, without mentioning whether the feature would be available internationally soon.

I’m fine: Gautham Vasudev Menon after car accident

Salman on Friday shared a photograph of himself along with Anil and producer Ramesh Taurani holding hands with each other.

“Inke Aane se ‘Race 3’ ka cast aur ho gaya jhakaas Anil Kapoor, Ramesh Taurani. ‘Race 3’. (With him joining the ‘Race 3’, the cast has become more awesome),” Salman captioned the image.

This is not the first time Salman and Anil will share screen space. The two have previously worked in movies like “Biwi No.1”, “No Entry”, “Yuvvraaj” and “Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love”.

“Race 3” marks Anil’s return to the “Race” franchise as the actor had earlier played a pivotal part in the previous instalments of the film.

The first two instalments of “Race” showcased Anil playing the role of a light-hearted police officer.

Taurani also posted an image and captioned it: “Picture agar ‘Race’ ho, toh yeh kaise na ho Anil Kapoor (If the film is ‘Race’, then how can he not be a part of it). He’s coming back to the ‘Race’.”

“Race 3” is being directed by Remo D’Souza, and is co-produced by SKF Films and Tips. The film is slated to release on Eid next year.

Nehalaxmi, who plays the role of Saumya in the Star Plus’ show, had quit “Ishqbaaaz” a few months ago. The actress had made way for Mansi aka ACP Bhavya to enter the show and play the lead opposite actor Leenesh Mattoo aka Rudra Singh Oberoi.

And now with Nehalaxmi’s re-entry in the show, it is said that not all is well between the two actresses.

“I have scenes with the rest of the Oberoi family. I have only begun shooting for the show and I am very excited because I know that my track and character both have a lot of twists and turns. I hardly know Mansi so there is neither friendship nor animosity,” Nehalaxmi said in a statement. (IANS)
