It Is Official: Bollywood Diva Priyanka Chopra Engaged To American Pop Sensation Nick Jonas

Finally, the most talked about sensational couple has taken the plunge and made it official! Just when we thought celebrity marriages were passé, they proved us wrong. We assumed that the steamy romance between Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas would fizzle out, but the official announcement of their engagement put all rumours to rest.

Bollywood quintessential heroine Priyanka Chopra (36) and singer Nick Jonas (25) had a Roka (engagement) ceremony in Mumbai on Saturday amidst close friends and family. Later it was followed by an engagement bash attended by many top people from the film industry as well as industrialists.



Considering the many anomalies in this relationship, be it the intercultural match, the huge age difference or the long-distance romance, there were huge speculations whether it was another celebrity flash romance.

So how did it all begin?

As unusual as their romance, the couple made their first public appearance together even before they were romantically involved. Or that is what Priyanka Chopra claimed in Jimmy Kimmel’s show. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas walked in together on the MET Gala’s Red Carpet in May 2017. Both were wearing outfits designed by Ralph Lauren. The chemistry between them was sizzling and quite obvious.

The Relationship Took Momentum

After a year since their first appearance together, in May 2018, a US Weekly reported that Priyanka and Nick were dating and were seen and photographed by media on several of their dates. They weren’t hiding their relationship anymore. Later in June, when the much-in-love couple met each other’s families, it became quite obvious that the lovebirds were serious. The high-profile couple didn’t seem much bothered by the 11-year age gap between them.

The Proposal

Nick Jonas popped the question to Priyanka Chopra when they were celebrating her 36th birthday in London. Apparently, Nick had been planning to propose Priyanka on her birthday, for which he had selected an engagement ring from Tiffany’s. They were vacationing in London to bring in Priyanka’s birthday, and it was then that Nick proposed. Looks like Priyanka was more than happy to accept, though she stated that she hadn’t anticipated it this early. Nothing could have matched this lovely birthday present Nick gave her.

It was after this quiet unofficial exchange of rings that Priyanka chose to walk out of Salman Khan’s movie Bharat and sent the media houses into a frenzy of speculations.

The Getting Together of Families

Priyanka is reported to have accompanied Nick to his cousin’s wedding in order to know his family and friends better. Nick flew to India to meet Priyanka’s mother and other family members. All this moved the relationship steadily ahead, and an announcement was soon expected.

The Engagement: Roka ceremony

The Roka ceremony was an intimate event, scheduled on Saturday afternoon and attended by only immediate family and close friends. Dressed in a lemon yellow Anarkali designed by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, Priyanka looked radiant as sunshine. Nick, the videshi son-in-law, sported traditional Indian attire and looked as comfortable as any other desi boy. Nick’s parents, Kevin Sr and Denise Jonas arrived for the celebrations and wore Indian ethnic outfits.



The ceremony was attended by close friends and family including Priyanka’s cousin Parineeti Chopra, Arpita Khan Sharma (Salman Khan’s sister), producer Mushtaq Sheikh, Shrishti Arya Behl, (Goldie Behl’s sister) and others.

The engaged couple uninhibitedly posed for photos and made a handsome pair.

“Taken…With all my heart and soul..,” wrote PeeCee on her social media account.

The Engagement Bash

Roka ceremony was followed by an engagement party where many industry bigwigs and friends were invited. PeeCee looked resplendent and had a natural glow throughout the evening. Being in love really works like a magic tonic to the face I guess! Nick charmed his way into the hearts of Desi guests with his charisma.

The invitees included industrialist Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Parineeti Chopra, Vishal Bharadwaj, Alia Bhatt, Arpita Khan, Mushtaq Sheikh, Siddharth Roy Kapoor, Anusha Dandekar, Nick’s parents and Priyanka’s family.

Heartiest congratulations to the new age lovely couple, and we eagerly await to hear wedding bells soon!

Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns: The Clash of the Titans of WWE

The SummerSlam 2018 showcased the latest brawl between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. These are a couple of stars, who have had multiple showdowns over the past few years. Each time Brock Lesnar, ‘The Beast,’ emerged victorious. The only time Roman Reigns had ever beaten Brock Lesnar was in a Triple Threat Match in 2016. He faced Brock as well as Dean Ambrose and was proclaimed the winner at Fastlane 2016.

This time around, Roman Reigns had a big deal at stake. The Universal Championship was up for grabs, and it was quite likely that Brock Lesnar would leave WWE to take part in UFC very shortly. Roman had to face his nemesis and take down ‘The Beast’ once and for all.



It was a highly action-packed match that began with Strowman entering the ring before the stars had a chance to exchange fists. He made an announcement that the money in the bank contract would be cashed in by him when the match ended, regardless of who was victorious. The shadowy presence of Strowman could be felt throughout the whole match.

Braun made his exit from the ring and without sparing a moment; Reigns set himself loose on the Breast. He began with a flurry of Superman Punches and followed up with a few Spears. However, when the last blow was being delivered, Brock Lesnar performed the Guillotine.

Roman Reigns retaliated with a Spinebuster, but Brock didn’t let go. He locked in the Guillotine once more. Roman countered with yet another Spinebuster, picking up The Beast and landing the blow. Roman tried to throw a clean Superman Punch, but Brock was ready. He guarded himself and caught Roman, giving him a brace of German Suplexes. He waited for a moment and threw another German Suplex at Roman.

Roman decided to use the Suicide Dive on Brock. It is a high-risk, high-reward move. The Beast proved to be too quick. He dodged the attack, causing Roman to connect with Strowman instead; Lesnar jumped out and whacked Strowman with a powerful F5. The fight was beginning to get highly action-packed and full of surprises.

The Beast grabbed the briefcase and tossed it into the ring towards the Titantron. He knocked out Strowman with a steel chair in seconds. He jumped into the ring, trying to go for Roman with the steel chair; however, Roman threw a brutal spear at Brock. He got Brock locked down for the 3-count, and finally emerged the winner of the Universal Championship.



It was a spectacular ending that blew everyone away. No one saw it coming. The steel chair collided onto Lesnar’s hand, and it snapped back to hit him smack on the face, all the time while Roman had him pinned to the ground. Roman Reigns had done the unthinkable and had finally managed to break his streak of losses.

A rivalry that finally had the greatest match in the spotlight ended with Roman Reigns taking down his nemesis; a fairy-tale ending to this clash of the Titans.

Priyanka Chopra: Journey from Desi Girl to Videshi Bahu

Indian Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra is engaged to American pop sensation Nick Jonas! The couple had been dating for 2 months when Nick Jonas, 25, proposed to Priyanka Chopra on her 36th birthday in London. Reportedly, Nick Jonas chose a ring from a Tiffany store in New York for the engagement.

Wow, what an unusual love story! Who would have thought of a possible match between an Indian megastar and an American singer, with huge cultural differences and an 11-year age gap between them? True that they say love knows no bounds. While Priyanka Chopra, after establishing a secure place for herself in Indian film industry has forayed into Hollywood, Nick Jonas is the heartthrob of millions of teens with a great singing career.




Let us have a sneak peek into the life of this inspiring girl from Bareilly who not only rocked the entertainment industry but also shattered many gender and racial stereotypes.

Humble Beginning: Rise from a Middle-Class Background to Miss World

Born on July 18th 1982, Priyanka Chopra lived in many cities because her parents, who were working as physicians in the Indian Army, had a transferable job. However, at the age of 13, she moved to the United States to pursue higher education. As a teenager in the United States, Priyanka Chopra was gawky with low self-esteem and often a victim of racism. Living in multiple cities, being exposed to various cultures and being extremely hard working, Priyanka Chopra grew up into a confident young lady with ambitions in heart and dreams in her eyes.

When Priyanka Chopra participated in the Miss India contest, one of the judges was heard saying that she’s too dark to win the title. However, PC went on to bag the Miss India first runner-up title and represented India in the Miss World contest. She was only 18 years old when she was crowned Miss World, and thus, began the journey of a megastar.

Star in the Making

Having made a debut in Tamil film industry, PC began her Bollywood career as a side actor in the movie The Hero: Love Story of a Spy. After this humble beginning, PC faced a series of flops and after working hard on her acting skills, returned with hit movies like Aitraaz, Mujhse Shaadi Karoge, Dostana, Don, Krish, Mary Kom, Agneepath 2, Saath Khoon Maaf, Barfi, Bajirao Mastani, Dil Dhadakne Do and many others. With her superb acting skills, killer looks, confident style and daredevil attitude, PC not only ruled the roost, but she also set the bar high for upcoming debutants.

Dabbling with Music

After modelling and acting, the multi-talented PC forayed into music and released albums like In My City and Exotic, both of which were well received by Indian and international music lovers.

From Desi to Videsi: Hollywood calling

 

Priyanka Chopra was never the one to get satiated or be complacent. With a strong foothold in Bollywood, she ventured into American Television Industry with the highly successful series Quantico. She played the lead and was the face of the show adorning every hoarding on the streets of New York. She was awarded the People’s Choice Award for her powerful performance in the show.

It was time now to hit the big screens of Hollywood. PC starred in the movie Baywatch opposite Dwayne Johnson where she portrayed the character of a villain, a role which was supposedly written for a male actor.

Priyanka Chopra the Global Star: Laurels and Recognition

Her stellar performances won many laurels including an invitation to the Oscars, gracing the cover page of many international magazines like Time, Maxim, Cosmopolitan, etc. and appearance on shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, etc.

Along with winning accolades for her versatile acting, Priyanka also got recognition from the Indian Government when she was honoured with the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award. It is commendable that she has fought all odds and paved the way to be where she is today, in spite of not having a godfather in the film industry.

Calling a Spade, a Spade

Priyanka does not shy away from voicing her opinions, be it whether disparity in wages for male and female actors, bullying, Muslim ban by the US President, or fair colour obsession of people. She oozes confidence as she talks of female empowerment in interviews and is the role model for millions of young girls.

Philanthropist

We can see Priyanka’s philanthropic side through her involvement in Swacch Bharat Abhiyan, anti-addiction programs, her foundation, “The Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education,” and cancer donation drives.

No wonder then, this dusky and talented beauty is included in Time magazine’s 100 most influential people list and has earned the title of Hottest Woman of the Year and World’s Sexiest Woman twice by Maxim India.

We are in awe of this fabulous journey of PC from Bareilly to New York and wish her great times ahead in her career as well as in her love life with Nick Jonas.

And the fans are keenly waiting for the movie to get released this Eid on June 15th. If you haven’t spared a slot for this movie yet; grab one soon!




This is going to be the third chapter of the successful ‘Race’ pool. It might interest you that Anil Kapoor is only constant who has been reserved from the prologues.  Talking about Bhai, after his last release Tubelight, Salman Khan is ready to cheer his fans with Remo D’Souza’s managerial undertaking Race 3.

Multi-starrer Movie

With various big shots including Salman, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem, Freddy Daruwala; Race 3 is clearly a multi-starrer film. The unique combination of celebs, Race 3 is definitely going to be an enjoyable film to watch.

Selfish –Song

A romantic track containing Salman, Jacqueline, and Bobby named Selfish recently got released. An interesting part of this song is that the lyrics have been penned down by your own beloved Bhai Salman and sung by his rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur. Now that can’t be a coincidence, right?

Last Minute Cast

Apart from Bhai, other actors were not really the first choice for their roles in Race 3. It was only when Bhai came on board; the names of Daisy and Jacqueline were confirmed for the leading women of the film. Salman during the trailer launch of this movie revealed why he actually suggested Daisy and Jacqueline’s name for this film. Salman said that after Tubelight, he had a plan to do a dance film with Remo, Jacqueline, and Daisy, but because of the underperformance of Tubelight, he kept the idea on hold. And finally, recommended the names of Remo, Jacqueline, and Daisy for the upcoming movie named Race 3.




 

Mr. Kapoor Has Something to Say about Race 3

Anil Kapoor strongly feels that the movie ‘Race 3’ was the most exciting one of all the three parts. He even said that since there have been breaks between all three parts of Race, so apparently it gets fresh every time. Anil even added that there was something interesting which was very positive about the movie in terms of the journey and performers. He revealed how they shot this entire movie in just six months and everything just went like a windup. Talking about Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor said when Salman features in a film; the scale inevitably goes up as his films can afford to do that.  Considering the fan base of Bhai, many things have to be evaluated carefully.

So, it won’t be wrong to say that the movie has already created a buzz among fans, audience, and people at large. Since it is getting released on the occasion of Eid, the excitement is even double. The rich crew of the movie has already won the hearts. Make sure you get a ticket for the first-day show!

Alia Bhatt & Her Latest Movie Raazi: Things You Cannot Afford to Miss!

Alia Bhatt has been quite eager about her next release Raazi directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced under the banner of Dharma Productions. This thriller features her in the robust role of a Kashmiri girl, who married to a Pakistani officer. Though the movie is set to release on 11th May 2018, the trailer of this movie has already garnered 18,204,052 views on YouTube till date, and after watching it, one can only say that the movie looks engrossing.

 

 

This time Alia Bhatt is going to star with Vicky Kaushal, and the duo would be sharing the sets for the first time after his impactful debut in Masaan, in the Bollywood film industry. Alia Bhatt is playing the powerful role of Sehmat in this film. She will be portraying the role of a daughter, a wife, and even a patriotic woman, who can move mountains for her country. The cast also encompasses veteran actors like Rajit Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Shishir Sharma, and young talented Jaideep Ahlawat.

Do You Know Alia Had to Learn New Skills for Raazi?

The bubbly, gorgeous and very talented Alia Bhatt has given an excellent performance once again in Raazi. The trailer of this film looks extremely engaging, and it seems that the actor has got into the skin of Sehmat, her character in Raazi. But the performance wasn’t a cake walk. Alia had to learn various new skills for justifying the story of the movie. Alia learned to drive the Jonga car, which was a challenge for her because Alia is more used to automatic cars.  To learn Pure Urdu was another task that Alia had to grasp because the director Meghna was extremely specific about the dialect. Alia was even asked to watch movies like Kabhi-Kabhi, Silsila, etc.; this learning spirit reflects the spark in the character of Alia Bhatt.

A True Story

If you didn’t know, Raazi is based on the novel Calling Sehmat by ex-naval officer named Harinder Sikka. This novel is a fictionalized note of a reportedly true story about an Indian Kashmiri secret agent, set during the period of the 1971 Indo-Pak war.




The former Lieutenant Commander of Indian Navy published a book in the year 2008 about a Kashmiri woman, who was married off to a Pakistani officer to fetch information about rival country’s war strategy. She delivered secret information back to India during the time of Indo-Pakistan war. The fact alone that Raazi is based on a true-life story dating back to 1971 Indo-Pak war makes this movie much more fascinating than anything else.  At present, Sehmat is no more, and her son serves the Indian army. It took Sikka long eight years to fictionalise and wheel a story with a cohesive narrative.

Thus, we cannot wait to watch Alia Bhatt as Sehmat, can we? If you haven’t checked out the link to this engaging movie clip, what are you waiting for; go watch it and you will definitely be grabbed by it.

We wish Alia and the entire crew all the best for Raazi!

Why is Starcraft 2 a decent starting point for getting started into RTS/MMOs?

Why is Starcraft 2 a decent starting point for getting started into RTS/MMOs?

Starcraft 2 is one of the most popular and widely played MMO games in the world.  Ever since its inception back in 2010, it has been enjoying a massive surge in the number of players, and even today, it is widely considered as one of the highest played RTS MMOs of all time. One might argue that the recent rise of DOTA and League of Legends might have stolen the limelight from Starcraft 2, but here are a few reasons why this game is worth your time.

    1. Familiarity: Fans of the original Starcraft will immediately get familiar with the Starcraft 2 interface because it is essentially a spiritual successor to the original. This is also a great starting point for people, who are planning to get into the whole MMO thing as it is essentially a much simpler game as compared to newer MMOs. The game still revolves around the three core races, namely the Protoss, Terrans, and Zerg being riled up in a constant state of conflict, but it mostly revolves around the Terran race.

      image source- starcraft2.com

    2. Expansions: Despite its 2010 release, it has received three major expansions over the years that have kept the game fresh. Starcraft 2 was originally designed to be the part of a trilogy, with the base game dubbed as being “Wings of Liberty.” It has gotten the two later updates or DLC, one launched in 2013 named as “Heart of the Swarm,” which is an expansion for the base game, and then, later in 2015, it finally got the 3rd instalment of the trilogy named as the “Legacy of the Void,” which was standalone expansion pack and not part of the base game.

 




  1. Play Modes: Starcraft 2, while designed to be an MMO at heart, has still got one of the most involving single player quest lines. It is a good starting point for people seeking to get into MMO, and the game also has an awesome tutorial mode that could help you to familiarise yourself with the game. You can also have a free gaming experience Starcraft 2.

    image source – kotaku.com.au

  2. Multiplayer: Multiplayer is obviously where the game shines. It has one of the most competitive MMOs player base in the industry. The great thing about the multiplayer is that you aren’t immediately thrown into a slaughterhouse of professionals but rather, Blizzard “Battlenet” service, which essentially monitors your game and keeps tracks of your achievements and skills decide your skill level and sorts you out with other players of roughly the same skill level as you.




Starcraft 2 is probably one of the greatest RTS-MMO games ever released on the PC platform. The game is easy enough for new players to get into without getting intimidated and equally as interesting for older players coming from the original game. Overall, it is a masterpiece that everyone should play at least once, and RTS fans should definitely try out if they haven’t.

Skyscraper Official Trailer: The Rock Never Fails to Impress

Skyscraper is scheduled to release on July the 13th, 2018, and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s is attracting a lot of appreciation (and a little mockery at the same time) worldwide. Popular for his over the top, power-packed action movies. Do you remember, San Andreas? Even if the movie trailer showcases him leaping impossible jumps (for which the internet has had a field day) to save his family perched up the literal burning skyscraper for which Johnson plays security manager, nonetheless, The Rock is set to make an impact.



 

Credit: Universal Pictures

Rock is an ex FBI Hostage Rescue Team Leader but has retired because he lost half a leg. He is being framed for the fire and must therefore also clear his name. A framed guy on the run, he must be very careful in order to save his family trapped in the skyscraper gone up in flames, just above the fire line. This hostage-action-thriller plot happens in China, and the movie’s cast includes Neve Campbell, Chin Chan, Noah Taylor and Raylond Moller to name a few.

 

It, generally, does not require a movie to make sense for it to be a smash hit especially if it is a Dwayne Johnson movie – San Andreas is a live example; so there is no literal competition to Skyscraper apart from Rampage, which releases a few months before.




The Skyscraper is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and produced by Beau Flynn and Johnson himself apart from Thurber and Hiram Garcia. Flynn and Garcia have been the producers for San Andreas and Central Intelligence together before too.

The film is going to be released by Universal Pictures.

Roman Reigns spoke and spoke about the beating that he’s going to give to the Brock and how he’s the greatest player of his generation.

What Happened Next?

The worst was still waiting for him as the US Marshals Handcuffed and Arrested Roman Reigns. It seems like a decent farewell for Roman to leave the arena and may enjoy an evening with his fans at the police station.

But God has other plans for him, as he was busting out from the ring, the beast attacked him. And he was handcuffed, just imagine you are up against the pain Brock with literary no hands. That sounds scary, well, what happened next is not at all a fairy tale.

Brock kissed Roman and allowed him to break free from the handcuffs as a sporting gesture. No, it ain’t end up like this; we wish it was, but Hell No! Mr. Reign got a first class ticket to Suplex city, thanks to the courtesy of Brock. He stayed there and enjoyed German Suplexes over and over and over again.




The Final Statement
It was indeed a big statement by Lesner, and even after the departure, he again showed up and threw Roman of the wheeled bed after his brutal pain massage. We can’t hold our self back for the main event on April 8, Are you ready?
