New Delhi– Actress Aditi Rao Hydari made a stellar appearance on the third day of the FDCI India Couture Week (ICW) 2019 held here on Wednesday.

The actress, who was last seen in the movie “Padmaavat”, glammed up in nude makeup and sleek hairdo, wearing a statement neck piece.

Los Angeles– Actor-producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been taking a “bit of a break from technology”, but she is back in the digital world.
The actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to share why she has been absent from social media for some time. She also expressed gratitude to her fans and her followers for sending love and good wishes on her birthday.

Alia Bhatt enjoys family time in Ooty
Ooty– Actress Alia Bhatt is getting a chance to spend quality time with her family while shooting in Ooty, and she is loving it.
The actress took to Instagram to share a post-card worthy photograph with her mother Soni Razdan and sister Shaheen Bhatt from Ooty, and it spells “a whole lotta love”.
In the image, Alia is covering Shaheen with half her shawl as her mother Soni hugs her from the back.
“A whole lotta love,” she wrote along with the photograph.
In the image, the “Raazi” actress is looking pretty without any make-up. Soni also oozes elegance as she smiles for the picture-perfect moment.
Alia is in Ooty to shoot for her father and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s “Sadak 2”, scheduled to release on July 10, 2020.
“Sadak 2” is sequel to the hit 1991 film “Sadak”, a romantic thriller, which featured Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. It was one of the highest-grossing Hindi movies of 1991 with a popular musical score. Late Sadashiv Amrapurkar’s award-winning performance as the villain won hearts and his character is still considered one of the all time best bad guys in Bollywood. The film was inspired by the 1976 American movie “Taxi Driver”.
Tiger Shroff’s sister Krishna is a tattoo star
Mumbai– Actor Tiger Shroff’s sister Krishna Shroff might not have shown much interest in her brother or father Jackie Shroff’s profession, but she surely is a star when it comes to flaunting tattoos.
She has stars on her wrist and a fairy godmother shining on her hand, apart from colourful flowers inked right below her navel.
Like her brother, she is also a fitness freak. She often takes to social media to share inspiring photos or videos of herself working out.
It seems, however, she wants to steer clear of acting. “When it comes to acting, I have always been clear from the beginning that it’s not something that intrigues me. I am not the one to face the camera… I am a very private person,” Krishna told the media last November.
“I like my zone and I like being in my own space. I have a couple of friends I have known for almost 20 years now and it’s just me and them in my own little bubble,” she said.

I am a rebel: Richa Chadha
New Delhi– The much-feted “Masaan” won Richa Chadha wide acclaim but the actress says she does not identify with her character in the film because she is essentially a rebel.
In Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan”, which completed four years of release on Wednesday, Richa plays Devi, who struggles to shake off the smalltown stigma towards pre-marital sex. Vicky Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi played the film’s other protagonists, Deepak and Shalu, who attempt to transcend the restrictions of their casteist society.
“I don’t identify with my character in ‘Masaan’ because I am somewhat a rebel. I have found my way. I have, despite all the challenges in life, fought and created a space for myself. In her own way Devi also fights, but I feel she stumbles a lot more than I ever would. That is where she gets stuck in life,” Richa told IANS.
The 32-year-old actress feels had the film released today, it would have received better distribution and promotional facilites.
“The true test of a film is when it becomes memorable. That’s why we like old songs. Sometimes you don’t get box-office recognition, but nobody was expecting (box-office success) for this film. For me, the best thing is that people continue to appreciate the film,” she added.

The couple has been married for three years now.

Just know basic Bollywood dance: Sourabh
Mumbai– Actor Sourabh Raaj Jain is set to appear on the new season of “Nach Baliye”, but says he is no expert in dancing. He adds that he knows just the basic Bollywood dance steps.
“The only dance form I’m acquainted with is basic Bollywood,” Sourabh told IANS.
He is participating in the latest season of the dance-based show with his wife.
“It is challenging for me because I am doing a daily show along with ‘Nach Baliye’. We have to rehearse till late at night. Sometimes I don’t get to sleep at all. Another challenge is that both of us are non-dancers,” he shared.
Sourabh has been shuffling between the sets of “Chandragupta Maurya” and “Nach Baliye” lately. (IANS)
