Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas seem to be falling deeper in love with each other and their social media behaviour is proof of that. Today, Nick took to Instagram to share a video of him crooning to Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga‘s Oscar-nominated duet Shallow. He dedicated his version of the song to his wife PeeCee in honour of the Oscars 2019 that is coming up soon. Now we all know Nick is already an amazing singer but now that we know who he’s singing for it makes it all the more romantic.

Check out the video:

Of course, his lady love replied to this dedication saying that he always manages to take her breath away.

Check it out:

Priyanka Chopra's comment on Nick Jonas's Instagram Post

These two are clearly smitten with each other and how! Remember when Nick couldn’t take his eyes off PeeCee while she was posing for the shutterbugs at the premiere of her movie Isn’t It Romantic? 

The duo was seen at Sophie Turner‘s birthday bash having a ball while Britney Spears kills it on the dance floor.

We absolutely love #Nickyanka and we hope they give us many such moments we can obsess over. Don’t you agree?

14 Facts About Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat, Choupette That Will Make You Question Your Life Choices

Whatever side of the argument you’re on in the endless debate of dogs versus cats, I think everybody can agree on one thing: they’re general personalities are drastically different.  And the best example of a trait in which they differ like chalk and cheese is that particular air of superiority that a cat has that a dog just doesn’t. A prime example of said regal, superior air is Choupette Lagerfeld, recently deceased Karl Lagerfeld‘s cat. Why do I say that you wonder? If you know, you know. If you don’t, you’re about to find out.

Meet Choupette Lagerfeld

Meet Choupette Lagerfeld, a 9-year-old Birman that fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld loved so much, he actually wanted to marry, saying, “There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals… I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat.” And somehow that is not the most bizarre thing about this magnificent creature. Step into Bizzaro-land in 3, 2, 1…

1. She Has 3 Names

First of all, she has 3 names. ‘Her name is Choupette, Princess Choupette or Miss Choupette,’ Lagerfeld shared with i.D magazine. Um, ya.

2. She Has 2 Maids

And a chef and a bodyguard.  But of her two maids, Francoise and Marjorie, Francoise is said to be her favourite.

3. She Eats At The Table Out Of Goyard Bowls

In a U.S. Harper’s Bazaar interview, Karl said, “She doesn’t like to eat on the floor, so I have to put the food on the table. Her dishes are by Goyard. She has one for water, one for her little croquette, and one for her pate.”

4. She Loves Antique Lace

Can you imagine a cat with a penchant for antique lace?

5. She Also Has A Diary

Mr Lagerfeld also divulged that Choupette has a diary that is updated with her activities and overall moods that is useful for the veterinary doctor.

6. She Gets Weekly Manicures

He said in the same Harper’s Bazaar interview, “The doctor does her manicure. She hates when we do it ourselves. The only time she makes a scandal is then.”

7. She Has 51.6K Number Of Followers On Twitter & 236K On Instagram

Meow there, influencer!

8. She Has An Heiress

Lagerfeld even told French newspaper, Le Figaro that Choupette “has her own little fortune. She is an heiress”. She is going to inherit some of Karl’s 200 Million Dollar fortune.

9. She Has An Apple iPad

She also has her very own iPad. I, on the other hand, are sitting here waiting for my iPhone 6S to die to justify buying a new one.

10. She Has Earned Millions Through Brand Campaigns

About 4 years ago, Lagerfeld did an interview with The Cut where he stated that his darling cat earned around $3.18 million from two projects,one for cars in Germany, and the other for a makeup line by Shu Uemura.

11. Yes, She Also Has A Makeup Line

Shu Uemura was a Japanese make-up artist with an eponymous makeup line. In 2014, the company came out with Shupette, a makeup line inspired by this beloved Aristocat.

12. She Has A Book Written About Her

It is titled,  Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat by Jean-Christophe Napias. Patrick Mauriès shot the photographs and Lagerfeld was a contributor.

13. She Has Modeled For An Editorial Fashion Shoot

In 2012, Choupette did a 10-page fashion spread for V Magazine. But when Lagerfeld was asked about whether she was going to do any more, in an interview in The Independent he said, “She has become the most famous cat in the world. I even get propositioned by pet food companies and things like that but it’s out of the question. I’m commercial. She’s not. She’s spoiled to death. Obviously. ”

14. She Also Inspired Karl To Design A Capsule Collection For Her

According to Karl.Com, “Named ‘Choupette in Love’, the capsule features Karl’s favourite feline with her new boyfriend, Bad Boy.  They appear on clutches, bags, and other pieces.”

In conclusion, I just want to put out that Choupette wasn’t even originally Karl’s. Funnily enough, in a strange twist of fate, the universe brought these two divas together after Karl was asked to cat sit for his friend French model, Baptiste Giabiconi who was away abroad. So that simply begs the question, where is the twist of fate that’ll have a millionaire adopt me?

Shibani Dandekar & Farhan Akhtar Celebrate Their First Milestone With This Romantic Photo

Bollywood couples and romances have always managed to catch our attention. The latest couple on the block who surprised us with their relationship sometime late last year is Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar. And they have been quite forthcoming with showering each other with some social media love. They’ve even been spotted together at events and at various locations in the city. They also don’t hold back on making grand gestures when it comes to showing how much they love each other. Even though they made their relationship insta-official only months ago, turns out that they’ve been dating for a year now (we got to know this through her caption). Both of them took to Instagram to share this milestone with a uber-romantic photo and it will give you mushy feels.

Take a look:

It is absolutely adorable, isn’t it?

Here are some photos of the couple being all cutesy and looking much-in-love:

The couple is rumoured to be tying the knot this year and if it’s true, we can’t wait to witness it!

8 Feel-Good Movies That Will Lighten Up Your Day Like Nothing Else

Movie making is an art and it makes you believe something that isn’t the reality. And when a film manages to get the right kind of emotions out of its audience, that is when you know its a great one. While our genre choices might be different, there is one genre that is always a good idea to indulge in—the feel-good movies! No matter how sad, happy or frustrated you’re feeling, these kinds of movies can just make your day. Which is why I thought of cheering y’all up with some of the best feel-good movies I have seen.

Check ’em out:

1. Little Miss Sunshine

A family with some complicated members sets out on a journey to California when their daughter wants to take part in a beauty pageant. But things take a turn when their road trip to California begins.

What I personally loved about this movie is the kind of bond the family shares. And the sweet little girl will make you fall in love with her innocence and charm. A must watch feel-good movie I’d say!

2. I Feel Pretty

A woman struggling with her insecurities and confidence issues falls down and hits her head while working out. She wakes up from the injury believing she is the most gorgeous and capable woman in the world. With this feeling, she starts living her life without any fear and with utmost confidence. She goes about her life when she soon starts realising her appearance never really changed.

The message that the movie portrays is to love yourself unconditionally. Self-love is such an important thing we all need to practice in our lives and this movie just hits the right cord.

3. The Holiday

Two girls living in different countries, who are complete strangers to each other, one-day decide to swap their houses for a long staycation. They are basically going through problems regarding their relationship and are looking for a break. But their lives change when they meet two local guys and hit it off with them.

What I took from this movie is how the universe works its magic when you feel like giving up. So, no matter what is going on with your relationships, professional life or anything else, just hang in their and happiness will come to you. It also reminded me about how when some things don’t work out, it’s for the better. You find someone who loves you for you, not for their idea of you.

4. The Intouchables

This one is a beautiful and critically acclaimed movie. It is based on the real story of a paralysed French nobleman who hires a street smart immigrant as his caretaker. Their journey together is just so much fun and heart-warming to watch!

The one thing that really hit me hard is how sometimes we tend to generalise people around us, thus losing the chance to actually know them. It is only when you take those leaps that you discover something magical, which will forever be etched in your box of happy memories.

5. As Good As It Gets

An old, grumpy and bigoted man hates his gay neighbour’s dog. When the neighbour is once brutally attacked, the old man is forced to take care of his pet dog. As time goes by, he starts becoming extremely attached to the dog. He also falls in love with a waitress and finally lets out his feelings and emotions.

It is definitely a feel-good movie to me as it shows how some people who may seem like they have shut their emotions off permanently are actually capable of loving generously. All they’re really looking for is a little push!

6. Life Is Beautiful

The Nazi death camps were some of the most disturbing and gruesome places to be trapped in. So, when a Jewish family becomes a victim of it, the father tries protecting his young son from knowing the actual reality of these camps. He then uses humour to create an alternative reality for his son, which is just so sweet yet heart-breaking at the same time.

The father’s character is so strong, it reminds us of how fathers can go to extreme levels just to shield their children. You’ll be thankful to your family after watching this movie, guaranteed.

7. The Terminal

A man is stranded at the JFK airport when war erupts in his country. He is then forced to take refuge at the airport for months until his true identity can be confirmed. During this difficult period, his innocent personality and aura make the people around fall in love with him.

This movie will remind you to be yourself, irrespective of everything that is surrounding you. Because that is the only way you can win the hearts and just be merry, right?

8. Forrest Gump

A man with a low IQ is bullied throughout his childhood. He then grows up to join the army services but while he is there, he cannot stop thinking about his childhood love Jenny. On the other hand, Jenny‘s life is going through many highs and lows.

Friendship is such a treasured relationship to me, and this movie reminded me of how having a strong bond with someone can really change your life around. A little support and a little love is all that we need when we hit rock bottom, and this is something that this movie has managed to portray beautifully among many other intense emotions.

So, if you’re going through some hard times, these movies can help you feel good about yourself and your surroundings. And if you think everything is going pretty well in your life right now, these movies will remind you to be thankful for everything. Which one of these movies do you plan to watch first? Let us know in the comments below.

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana Actor Abhijeet Singh All Set To Star In ‘Bunker’

Rajkummar Rao, Abhijeet Singh ()Source: Instagram | @thisisabhijeetsingh)

Pursuing your passion isn’t always easy, it comes with a lot of hard work. The same goes for actors and artists in the Bollywood industry who are trying to make it big. From learning new art forms, to focusing on their fitness or even making their careers with smaller supporting roles. There One such example is that of the Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana actor, Abhijeet Singh. He played Kriti Kharbanda‘s brother in the film and was a part of the funny scene that went viral too.

Check it out:

The scene apparently took multiple retakes and Rajkummar Rao was so into his character that the slaps had quite an effect too. It’s definitely not an easy thing to do especially in front of the camera and so many crew members but hard work does pay off and it certainly did for Abhijeet.

Yes, he is all set to play the protagonist in the film, Bunker, directed by Jugal Raja. The film has an interesting story that traces a gut-wrenching experience of an army man.

This Is How Deepika Padukone Went From Classic To Contemporary In One Night

If there is one thing I’d like to learn from celebrities, it would be their ability to seamlessly ace the fashion transition game—who am I mainly thinking about when I say this? It’s Deepika Padukone. Last night is easily a testament to this when she wore two contrasting looks, back-to-back and pulled them off, so stylishly.

Look 1: Rahul Mishra

Celebrity stylist Shaleena Nathani picked this scalloped edged, white saree from Rahul Mishra for the Lokmat Maharashtrian Of The Year Awards, that spelled grace and elegance in every way.

Deepika Padukone Deepika Padukone

Look 2: Amit Aggarwal

For the second event that night, the Nykaa Femina Beauty Awards, Deepika wore a look custom-made by Amit Aggarwal alongside her husband, Ranveer Singh. This pleated gown had a silhouette that flattered Deepika’s body oh-so-perfectly.

Deepika Padukone Deepika Padukone

My Style Tip:  With the wedding season in India (that seems to last the whole entire year now), this is a tip we could all use. Notice how Deepika kept her hairstyle versatile and her makeup neutral enough to complement both the looks—this helped her transition from an elegant desi look to a sexy glamourous one so seamlessly.

Which one of her looks do you like best? Let us know in the comments below!

अरिश्फा खान ने किया खुलासा, कहा – ‘दानिश की मौत के बाद उसका भाई गुरफान कर रहा है मेरे परिवार को टॉर्चर’

Danish Zehen, Arishfa Khan, (Source: I @danish_zehen, @arishfa_khan__138)

यूट्यूब सेंसेशन और ऐस ऑफ़ स्पेस कंटेस्टेंट दानिश ज़हन की, 20 दिसंबर की रात, कार एक्सीडेंट में मौत हो गयी। युथ आइकॉन और सेलेब होने के कारण दानिश के बहुत सारे फ्रेंड्स और फैंस थे। उनकी डेथ के बाद उनके कईं फ्रेंड्स और फैंस ने अपना दुःख ज़ाहिर करते हुए, सोशल मीडिया पर वीडियोस और पोस्ट्स बनाए। लेकिन कुछ लोगों का दुःख जाताना उनके परिवार को पसंद नहीं आया, और उन पर इलज़ाम लगाया गया के वो ये सब पब्लिसिटी के लिए कर रहे हैं।

और जिन सेलेब्स पर ये इलज़ाम लगाए गए उन्ही में से एक, सीरियल वीर की अरदास वीरा की चाइल्ड आर्टिस्ट अरिश्फा खान भी हैं। दानिश की मौत के बाद, अरिश्फा ने एक वीडियो बनाया था, जिसमे वह दानिश को याद करते हुए रो रही थी। इस वीडियो को पोस्ट करने के बाद  अरिश्फा को सोशल मीडिया पर काफी परेशान किया गया।

और अब टैली चक्कर के साथ खुलकर बात करते हुए एक्ट्रेस ने बताया, के इसी बात को लेकर दानिश का भाई, पिछले दो महीने से उन्हें और उनके परिवार वालों को परेशान कर रहे हैं।

अरिश्फा ने कहा-

दानिश का भाई गुरफान हमारी जान के पीछे पड़ा है। पिछले दो महीनों ने उसने हमें बहुत टॉर्चर किया है, इतना की मेरी माँ ने परेशान होकर एक दिन खुदको फांसी से लटका लिया था। शुक्र है मेरे पापा सही टाइम पर आ गए। इन सब चीज़ों की वजह से मेरा और मेरे परिवार का बहुत नाम ख़राब हुआ है। एक लाइव सेशन के समय गुरफान ने ये तक कह दिया था के हो सकता है मैंने दानिश का मर्डर किया हो। वो जो भी कह रहा है वो सब झूट है। वो मेरी माँ को बहुत बुरा भला कहता है, जो सभी को बहुत परेशान कर देता है। ये सब बहुत फ़्रस्ट्रेटिंग हैं।मैं अब अकेले घर से बाहर कहीं नहीं जा पाती हूँ। इससे मेरी पढ़ाई का भी नुकसान हो रहा है।

सच में बहुत ज़्यादा फ़्रस्ट्रेटिंग है ये, आपका क्या कहना है इस बारे में?

Sonam Kapoor’s Beauty Game Has Been Next Level Lately

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BtVU7_klT_q/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Sonam Kapoor and fashion are practically synonymous. For beauty junkies like me however, she’s a major beauty icon too! Not only does she love experimenting with different looks, but also carries them off with such ease and confidence. Lately, she’s upped her game even further so I decided to decode a few of her incredible looks.

1. Pops Of Yellow

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BtQ7yQ3Fug-/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Yellow is such a cheerful shade and Sonam really makes it work! The splash of colour on her lids complements her wispy hair and glossy lips perfectly, whilst giving off a laid-back vibe. If you are keen to try this look out, stick to a powder shadow to get more pigmentation.

2. Intense And Dramatic

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BtNi5iPFlzy/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

I honestly don’t know which aspect of this look I love more – the braided ‘do, deep eye shadow or those sculpted cheekbones! For those of you attempting her hairstyle, a tiny bit of hair gel will keep your hair sleek and polished, whilst keeping baby hairs away.

3. Glowing Skin

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/Bsudj4ylrvm/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The highlight here is giving me life. The actress’ skin looks lit-from-within and brings out her petal pink lips and lids. Use a liquid highlighter to get an ethereal glow like hers.

4. Retro Vibes

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BsXwIHblT28/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Does this image not give you major retro feels? With her lined eyes and red lip, Sonam has an old-world glamour about her. A kohl liner or kajal will help enhance your eyes to get this look.

5. Wild And Free

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BtiQ7MoFAsg/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The actress’ gorgeous, bouncy curls take centre stage here. Coupled with shimmery lids and a mauve pout, this soft look is definitely one to copy. For defined, yet voluminous curls, rake a cream through your locks before using a diffuser.

6. Power Stance

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BtNhUuShDZ3/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The bold brows, middle-part and earthy eye shadows scream confidence! This look is a key example of how you don’t need to go bright or glittery to make a statement. Invest in a brow product to get defined brows like her.

7. Classic And Clean

<iframe width="320" height="320" frameBorder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/BtyuONPFMjc/embed" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Sonam pulls off this timeless look with aplomb! Her red lipstick and crisp, winged liner play up her gleaming skin and look incredibly chic. To get a true red pout like this, blot your lipstick with a tissue between each coat of lipstick.

Gully Boy has been garnering a lot of attention and appreciation since its release. The movie has left the audiences and critics equally impressed. Besides an incredible story line, the cast and their performances have been applauded too. And it’s not just us, even Bollywood celebrities are turning into fans. The latest one to join the list is Ishaan Khatter. The Dhadak actor took to social media and posted his own rap video for Vijay Varma aka Moeen. Vijay’s character is shown to be neither completely good nor entirely bad but somewhere in the grey. He makes his character look raw and real. Vijay, recently shared a video of him rapping just like his character Moeen and that Instagram video inspired him Ishaan to share his own version of it.

Ishaan is a talented actor and has many talents, we already know he is too good at dancing like his brother and actor, Shahid Kapoor. But that’s not it, he can also rap and quite well too. He took to social media to appreciate Vijay for his performance with a video of him rapping.

Check it out:

Isn’t this super cool?

Khatter’s caption read, “Moeen bhai bole machao toh majboori thi, kya? In honour of one of my favourite films in a long time and Moeen bhai, one of @zoieakhtar ’s best characters. Thank you @itsvijayvarma for making him a flesh and blood human being. @ranveersingh @aliaabhatt @siddhantchaturvedi @ozajay straight up gangstas 🗣”

Gully Boy is certainly a film that’s grabbing everyone’s attention. Have you watched it yet?

8 Tips That Will Help You Successfully Give Up Refined Sugar

Quitting Sugar | Image Source: www.shutterstock.com

No matter how yummy it is, consuming refined sugar is one of the worst things you could do your body. It is found in most processed foods and dessert. It also sometimes cannot be identified because it is present in foods you might not know had sugar. Sugar increases the risk of diabetes, heart diseases and is one of the reasons for unhealthy weight gain too. Not only does it negatively affect health, but it also is really addictive. It isn’t easy to give it up and if you’re planning to quit anytime soon, here are a few things you could do that’ll help you give sugar up.

1. Don’t quit cold turkey

Since sugar is addictive, you will defo get cravings also know as withdrawals. And because those cravings will be strong, there are chances you’ll succumb to them and eat something that contains a lot of sugar. Instead, gradually reduce your intake so that you don’t shock your body by completely taking it away. You don’t want your efforts to be counterproductive by you overindulging on sugary products.

2. Track your intake

It always helps to note down how much sugar you end up consuming on a daily basis. This will give you an insight on how to balance it out. So, if you think you’ve gone overboard with sugar, cut down on it for the coming few days. If you have trouble tracking it manually, there are apps like Sugar Intake Tracker that can help you do it easily.

3. Use honey

Substitute refined sugar with honey or stevia leaves?. Limited consumption of honey is actually good for you. Plus, it isn’t too heavy on the calories as well. So, add honey to your nimbu paani, milkshakes or even cakes if you’re baking them yourself. This is definitely more healthy considering honey is known to be rich in antioxidants that help in boosting immunity, in improving memory, is good for skin and also helps to cure gum diseases among many other benefits.

4. Eat a tonne of fruits

Satisfy your sugar cravings with sweet fruits like fresh berries, apples, pears, guavas and more. Fruits contain a lot of fibre that even helps in digestion. If that’s not enough, adding fruits to your diet can help in boosting your overall energy and immunity and also can aid in keeping diabetes in control. So, either eat them as a dessert after your meal or whip up a smoothie if you like it!

5. Befriend dark chocolate

Dark chocolate is known to satisfy sugar cravings to a massive extent. So, every time you crave chocolate or something sweet in general, eat a small block of dark chocolate. Store a bar in your fridge so it’s there when you need it.

6. Give it time

Sugar is a stubborn little guy so it won’t leave you easily. Have patience and be strong. And most importantly, don’t think that you’ll get results overnight. Give it time.

7. Give up sodas

An average can of cola contains approximately 39 grams of sugar. This is probably the biggest intake of sugar in your life RN. So, just stop! Switch to healthier substitutes like fresh fruit juices instead.

8. Check labels

Some products you wouldn’t expect to, have hidden sugar in large quantities. Products like canned soups, protein bars, BBQ sauce, ketchup and more have a lot of sugar in them that you probably aren’t aware of. Make sure you check the labels of these products before buying them or better yet, make them at home instead.

Don’t worry too much about giving it up immediately. Take your time and taper your intake within a few weeks. Remember, you can do it!

IOC scraps Olympic quotas from Delhi shooting World Cup after Pak shooters denied visas for ISSF WC

New Delhi: The International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) announced on Thursday that all the 16 quota places for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics on offer at the shooting World Cup here have been scrapped due to denial of visas to Pakistan players.

According to ISSF President Vladimir Lisin, the decision was taken by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) following the controversy over the participation of the Pakistan contingent.

“The IOC has decided that no quota places for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be on offer at this World Cup due to denial of visas to Pakistan players,” Lisin told reporters here on Thursday.

Pakistan players not granted visas

“The bad news is that the Pakistan players have not been granted visas for this World Cup and according to the IOC charter, there should be no discrimination of any sort,” he added.

The IOC decision comes after several days of ambiguity over the participation of the shooters from Pakistan.

The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) Secretary Rajiv Bhatia had told IANS on February 18 that G.M. Bashir and Khalil Ahmed – the two Pakistanis due to take part in the 25 metre rapid fire pistol category – have been granted visas.

NRAP wrote to the ISSF

However, the National Rifle Association of Pakistan (NRAP) wrote to the ISSF on Wednesday, insisting that its shooters have been denied visas and requested that the two Olympic quotas on offer in the 25 metre rapid fire pistol category should be scrapped.

In its letter to the ISSF, the NRAP had requested that those quota places should instead be included in the next ISSF World Cup in Beijing.

The various events of the ISSF World cup will be held between February 23 and February 27 at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range here.
