There are very few stars in the world who can claim to have a journey that is as fascinating as our international desi girl, Priyanka Chopra. Standing at the pinnacle of her success and being one of the most popular faces of global entertainment, there is only so much that we know about Priyanka as a person. She has always been bold with her statements and opinions, but she has also been extremely guarded about her personal life, which has made her even more of an intriguing.Much has been said and written about her journey, but it has mostly been a glossy and inspiring version of her story that was meant to inspire and instill the spirit of dreaming big about women. Thus when we heard that the diva herself is planning to reveal the never ending mystery of her journey and personality, our excitement knew no bounds. But even though we are literally counting days before the book hits the stand, but knowing Priyanka, we can say with a certainty that these are a few aspects of her life that would not be addressed in this memoir.Shah Rukh Khan ControversyWe can bet our life on this one. From Gauri Khan barring Shah Rukh from working with her again their growing proximity and a little too sizzling chemistry to ridiculous rumors of AbRam being Priyanka and Shah Rukh’s biological son, the rumors surrounding Priyanka and Shah Rukh has been consistent and given her silence over the matter for the longest time, we are sure there will be no mention of it in her memoir as well.Other AffairsNot just Shah Rukh, but when it comes to men in her life, she has truly been the favorite child of romantic controversies. From Aseem Merchant to Akshay Kumar to Shahid Kapoor and more recently Tom Hiddlestone and Nick Jonas, her love life has been forever under the radar. And it is perhaps she has been really guarded about her personal life. In fact apart from Harman Baweja she has never really accepted being in a relationship with any other actor, thus people who would pick up her memoir with the hope of some first-person account of the juicy and stary affairs would probably be disappointed.Recent Quantico Controversy And Other Anti-National AccusationsEver since Priyanka has shifted her base to Hollywood, people back home have been miffed with her on multiple occasions. From wearing a dress and crossing her legs in front of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to waving a tricolor scarf on her Republic Day to the recent Hindu terror plot in her show Quantico, Priyanka has been on the receiving end of a lot of flak that accused her of being an anti-national. No matter how bold or explosive the memoir turns out to be , we have doubts if these controversies of her life would be discussed as it will give the memoir a political turn which she would probably like to steer clear of.Her Equation With Kareena KapoorBack in the mid to late 2000s, this was one cat-fight that grabbed a lot of headlines. It all probably started with when two actress worked in Aitraaz together but it was Priyanka who walked away with all the praise. Later, on Karan’s chat show when asked what is one thing she would like to ask Pee Cee, she replied that she would like to know where she gets her accent from. Then when Priyanka came on the show Karan asked her comment on Kareena’s statement and she said that she gets it from the same place from where her husband Saif gets it from. Not to mention the common past that both the actresses shared with Shahid Kapoor. Needless to say, the relationship between these two ruling divas have never been very smooth and even now neither Kareena nor Saif is seen working with Priyanka. Given how messy and petty the whole chapter is, we are sure it would not be a part of her memoir.The Me Too CampaignThis was a shocker really. For somebody like Priyanka who has been so vocal about women empowerment and issues pertaining to women, her less than enthusiastic attitude toward the raging #metoo campaign that has been going on in Hollywood is truly baffling. Given how this is one issue that Pee Cee has hardly taken up in real life, we are not very sure about its existence in her memoir either.

Ever since we have seen Ranbir miraculously transforming into Sanjay Dutt for his biopic we have only blinked and rubbed our eyes in order to let the exactness of it really sink in. And to be honest, even after seeing the teaser, trailer, songs and the all the posters at least a million times, it still makes us do a double take. Although now it is impossible for us to imagine anybody but Ranbir playing Sanjay Dutt, according to recent reports Ranbir was not really that first choice for this role.Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the producer of the film, actually wanted to cast none other than Ranveer Singh to play Sanjay Dutt. However, things did not work out and ultimately Ranbir landed the role which many believe is going to be his career's biggest success.However, given our curiosity in Sanju shows no sign of slowing down, we just thought of giving Ranveer Singh a fair chance and re-imagined the posters of Sanju with him. The result really blew our minds and it will surely blow your's too. While we don't want to get into the comparison between the two, this has surely given us a jolt. Take a look and make sure you have a chair around because you are going to need it for sure.Ranveer Would Have Totally Rocked This LookRanveer With This Body Would Have Looked Quite IrresistibleIs It Just Us Or This Look Is Making Ranveer A Little Like John Abraham?Mind Blown To Infinity And BeyondWe Are Still Rubbing Our Eyes In DisbeliefThis One Is Hands Down The Best OneThat Swagger Is Just So Typically Ranveer

The recent trend in Bollywood songs or music has been really simple. Either you pick up a song that has already been out and rehash it, or you make a catchy and peppy number with raps in the middle like garam masala. Very rarely do we come across a song that is old worldly romantic, slow and not sung by Arijit Singh. Well, the title track for Dhadak is one such song that will revive the closet old world die-hard romantic in you.The Dhadak song is beautiful, to say the least. The lyrics are beautifully penned down. And even though we just love Arijit Singh, it is really refreshing to have a romantic track that he has not sung.The music has been given the Ajay-Atul, the music director duo who had also worked for Sairat. The song naturally has quite some feel of Sairat and it is quite similar to the title track of Dhadak. In fact, Ajay Gogavale is also the voice of the song. Along with him, we have the talented Shreya Ghosal and the names are enough to tell you how the song might be. The 3 something minute song has long stretches of music too. While some might feel it to be too slow, it would definitely make it to the playlists of all the die-hard romantics who would want their souls to be soothed with a slow song.While the chemistry of Ishaan and Jahnvi is just what you saw in the Dhadak trailer, the visuals of the song actually looks like an extended "Padhado Marhe Desh"/ Rajasthan Tourism ad. There are stretches of winding roads, huge mahals and even lake by the Mahal that you'll see.Check out the song here:
