Here are the top highlights of the week.
Priyanka Chopra’s iconic Met Gala
The theme for this years MET Gala was ‘CAMP: Notes On Fashion’. Priyanka and Nick can be seen at their TOP game.
Priyanka was dressed in avant-garde Dior Gown, Chopard pendants and a melodramatic crown, Nick, on the other hand, is dressed in a white suit by Dior and Christain Louboutin shoes. Priyanka’s look appeared to be inspired by Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland. She wore a silver gown with her hair in voluminous back-combed waves, just like Red Queen.

2. Akshay Kumar starts shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Next, Sooryavanshi:
The duo of Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty was long overdue and, finally, we are getting to see them together on a big screen in Sooryavanshi. The buzz has already started been building since Akshay’s cameo in Simmba. Since then, there’s been talking about the film, the plot and a lot about it.
There also have been talks of clashing the movie with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah, but it’s Bollywood and anything can happen at any moment. Time will tell if we will get stuck in between choosing one from both or better sense will prevail. But as of now, we have good news or should we say, a good still.
3. Priyanka Chopra’s brother, Siddharth Chopra Calls off The Wedding:
Priyanka Chopra’s brother Siddharth Chopra was supposed to get married to his beau Ishita Kumar by the end of April 2019 but for some unknown reason, the wedding was called off. Priyanka Chopra’s mother recently revealed the reason behind it.
Talking to an entertainment website, Madhu said, “My son Siddharth said he was not ready for marriage yet. He explained he needed more time.”
Madhu Chopra earlier in an interview with a news portal said, “They (Siddharth and Ishita) have mutually called it off.” And before this, in an interview with Bombay Times Madhu said that we have to postpone the wedding because Ishita has to undergo urgent surgery. She had said, “We are disappointed but what can you do when a person is unwell? We wish Ishita a speedy recovery.”
4. Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan’s announcement video is out:

Calling it as an “out and out the entertaining film”, Ayushmann says it will handle the subject of homosexuality sensitively.
After the success of Aanand L. Rai’s “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan“, which addressed the subject of erectile dysfunction with humour, the second installment of the franchise will delve upon the issue of homosexuality. It will be directed by Hitesh Kewalya.
“It is a beautiful story told in the quintessential Aanand L. Rai style of filmmaking that will touch your hearts and leave a smile on your face,” Ayushmann said in a statement.
“It is one of the most brilliant films that I have read in a long time and it handles the subject of homosexuality really sensitively. It is a pleasure to collaborate again with the master storyteller of our times. It is an out and out entertaining film that will also make you think and that’s the hallmark of good cinema,” he added.

Yet again she’s getting trolled by people and calling her anti-nationalists for playing this character and her tipsy dance moves. Manoj Joshi, who is also the part of the movie, is already shooting in Manali and Rakhi has a guest appearance in the movie.

He was produced before a magistrate’s court which has remanded him to police custody till May 9, the sources said. According to a report published in Navbharat Times, Karan started sobbing in the court during the hearing as he was presenting his side of the story.
As per the First Information Report lodged by the victim, the accused raped her on the promise of marriage, filmed the act and tried to extort money from her under the threat of making the video public.
The 34-year old victim, who is also an astrologer, said she had met the accused through a dating app in 2016.
8. Hrithik Roshan pushes the date for his next film, Super 30:
Hrithik Roshan has just postponed the release date of his much-awaited upcoming film Super 30 to avoid a clash with Kangana Ranaut’s Mental Hai Kya. The Bollywood star took to Twitter and posted his statement in which he said that he has requested producers to shift the release date because he wants to save himself from personal trauma and toxic mental violence.
In order to calm the situation in the most dignified way possible, Hrithik Roshan has shifted the date of his movie, in spite of it being ready to release, to another date to save himself from the trauma that the whole issue entails.
It so happened that producer Ekta Kapoor postponed the release of her upcoming film Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao recently. The film which was slated to release on June 21 will now hit the cinemas on July 26 which was also the release date of Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30.
