Priyanka Chopra recreates ‘desi girl’ moment
Los Angeles– Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who was given the ‘desi’ epithet after her song “Desi girl” from the movie “Dostana”, has recreated her same look for a magazine cover.
Dressed in a golden sari by designer Tarun Tahiliani, Priyanka flaunted her bare back while doing a photo shoot for American magazine InStyle’s July 2019 issue.
The “Quantico” actress on Thursday took to social media and uploaded several photographs, showcasing her ‘desi’ look in different types of saris.
But it’s her bare back photograph which is most talked about. Even her husband Nick Jonas could not resist commenting on Priyanka’s photograph. Nick posted fire emojis on the image.
After her photo shoot in saris, Priyanka spoke about her love for the six yard attire.
“Fashion is such an important part of global culture, often arising from centuries of tradition, and doesn’t go out of style when the seasons change. The ‘sari’ is one of the most iconic and recognised silhouettes from India,” she captioned the image.
“To me, its beauty lies in its versatility, not just in drape and fabric. It embodies elegance, femininity, and power, and I love how I feel when I’m wearing one,” she wrote.
Apart from the golden sari, Priyanka is seen wearing designer Sabyasachi Mukherji’s creations — a sari with a belt to accentuate her hourglass figure.

Nothing more fulfilling than being mother: Tulsi Kumar
Mumbai– Singer Tulsi Kumar says there is nothing more fulfilling than being a mother, but it comes with some challenges.
The “Tu laung main elaichi” hitmaker became a mother to a boy in December 2017.
She understands the struggle of new mothers and losing the post-pregnancy weight. In an industry where looks are generally as important as talent, it was imperative for her to get back in shape.
“There is nothing more fulfilling than being a mother. But it does come with challenges – one of them being the extra weight that one carries well past the baby’s arrival,” Tulsi said in a statement.
“Yes, that has been my struggle too and something that most mothers will relate to. Today, nearly a year and a half later I want to share that I have managed to climb this mountain with some success. My motherhood inspired me to do this. And to all the mothers, you can do this as well,” she added.

“I am looking forward to start shooting for it,” she added.
She will come in as Nandini in “Yeh Teri…”. According to a source, her character will enter the house as an old lost friend of Shantanu Mazumdar (played by actor Avinash Mishra) and will stay in his house.

Pankhuri glad to experiment with different genre
Mumbai– Actress Pankhuri Awasthy has been part of historical and romantic projects, and is now looking forward to join the cast of the long-running family drama “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”.
Pankhuri has played powerful roles in shows like “Suryaputra Karn” and “Razia Sultan”, but it’s the first time that she will be seen in a family drama.
“‘Yeh Rishta…’ is like a brand on television. The show has such a loyal audience. At a time when shows are getting pulled off in the blink of an eye, it’s quite a feat to have a show that’s been around for 10 years,” Pankhuri said in a statement.
“I am glad to be trying my hand at a different genre…in a show which already has an established audience. It ups the responsibility, but I take that in my stride,” she added.
On her role, she shared: “She is a soft, demure yet a mature individual who will win over the love of everyone around her. I feel she’s a very relatable person and that’s what convinced me to take up the role.
“Currently, not many roles on television are relatable. While it’s an actor’s job to play it convincingly, I am glad that this time around I am playing a character which I can relate to as well.”
Shahid could never do long distance relationships

Shahid, actress Kiara Advani and other team members of “Kabir Singh” hosted a press meet with fans and the media here on Thursday for the launch of the song “Mere sohneya” from their film.
During the fun interaction with fans, he was asked to give advice on long distance relationships.
“I could never do long distance relationships. I mean, what’s the point? I have always felt like… if I am in love with someone, I would want to share as much time as I can with her…but there are people who have done it,” Shahid, now married to Mira, replied.
“I have friends who managed to get through it, they have gotten married and they are really happy, so there are difficult phases one needs to get through in long distance relationships, and I was really bad with it,” he added.
“Kabir Singh” is a remake of the Telugu blockbuster “Arjun Reddy”, which starred Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey.
Kiara, who plays the leading lady in the film, said: “The most beautiful thing about the love story is that it is a campus love story and it starts in college. All of us have been in relationships, in love and had our first crush when we were in school or college.
