In a video doing the rounds, Nick and Priyanka are seen keeping to their routine of walking hand in hand on a stairway. While Priyanka, dressed in black, was busy waving to fans, happy to see the couple, she tripped.

But Nick was by her side in her “oops” moment. She held on to his arm and regained her balance, with a huge smile on her face, followed by a laugh.

It is one of those moments that has made Nick and Priyanka one of the most watched out among the celebrity couples on the social media.

Their wedding in Jodhpur last December drew widespread global media attention. The couple recently featured together in Jonas Brothers’ comeback single “Sucker”.

The actor expressed his views on the changing gender dynamics in Indian entertainment industry in an interview to BBC Asian Network. He was in London to receive an honorary doctorate in Philanthropy from The University of Law, London.

“The roles of women and the kind of attitude you have at the workplace for women is changing for positive,” Shah Rukh is seen saying in the video shared on the official Twitter handle of BBC Asian Network.

“There will be discrepancies and ups and downs too. There were times when I was working in the 1990s that if a lady got married, she normally did not have the opportunity to come back and act in a film.

“But now they are married and acting in films and its so seamless and nice, so I think lots of positive stuff for female actors in the film industry,” he added.

On the film front, Shah Rukh has failed to generate box office hits despite his wide fan following and ‘superstar’ status. With “Dilwale”, “Fan”, “Raees”, “Jab Harry Met Sejal” and last year’s “Zero”, Shah Rukh’s projects have failed to elicit the expected response back-to-back.
