Finally, the trailer of ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ was released and it is breathtaking. Kangana as the Rani of Jhansi rocks. It beautifully showcases how Rani Lakshmibai fought for her Janshi and defeated the British rulers. For Rani Lakshmibai, country comes first for her and then family.

Going by the trailer, we can say ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is a complete chapter of Jhansi ki Rani, Rani Lakshmibai. It is totally recommended for people of all age groups, specially the school children.

The official trailer also gives us a glimpse of Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Danny Denzongpa among others. The trailer shows Kangana Ranaut’s warrior avatar.

Talking about the Queen, the actress had once told IANS, "I've grown up listening to Rani Laxmibai's legend and folklore like all of us but at the same time I did not know the intensity of her life. Her youth had gone in battling the enemy and preparing the regular people to become warriors.”

She had added, “What was unknown about her life is that she fought for many things that are acceptable today like adoption and women empowerment. She was completely against untouchability and she neither believed in caste system. She was a Brahmin who fought like Kshatriyas. She fought against Bargad Pratha, Parda system, caste system and untouchability. She fought for all these things relentlessly and conquered all those. She was a visionary and I value the freedom that we have because of her a lot more. Manikarnika... is a heartfelt tribute to Rani Laxmibai, who gave birth to Indian independence, a hero who inspires generations even now."

'I'm not surprised at all': Deepika on Ranbir skipping her wedding reception

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s wedding reception in Mumbai on December 1 was attended by who’s who of Bollywood. Even Katrina Kaif, who shared cold shoulder with Deepika for Ranbir Kapoor equation turned up for the wedding to wish the newlyweds but Ranbir Kapoor, who dated the ‘Padmaavat’ actress for two years skipped the wedding reception.

It is learnt that Ranbir’s busy schedule kept him away from DeepVeer's reception. Even Alia Bhatt did not turn up. Both were busy shooting for Ayan Mukherji’s ‘Brahmastra’.  A report claimed that Alia and Ranbir along with Ayan Mukerji did a 20 hour shift for ‘Brahmastra’ and so they failed to make to the wedding reception.

During her appearance on Famously Filmfare, Deepika said, “We’ve not spoken. I mean, we spoke before the reception but we have not spoken after. But, that’s him. I’m not surprised at all. But, that’s the relationship we share and that’s the beauty of that relationship; so much is said without saying much at all.”

Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding took place in Lake Como amid security that is usually reserved for state heads. Deepika said the choice of venue was due to privacy. “We announced everything, we announced (wedding dates) a month before we got married and I’d anyway taken this year off as I needed to replenish emotionally, so it all just worked out. Why outside of India, because privacy was very important for us and somehow when we went around, that place just felt correct.”

In the interview, Deepika called the wedding ceremonies – in accordance with Konkani and north Indian rituals – as a magical affair. “More than fairytale, I’d say it was magical. It was lovely- the weather was perfect, the sun was beautiful, I think magical is the one word to sum it up.”

Anushka Sharma jetted off to Australia for first wedding anniversary

Virat Kohli is currently in Australia for the test series and his actress wife Anushka Sharma took a break from her work commitments to join her hubby in Australia so that they could ring in their first wedding anniversary together.

Anushka Sharma took a break from ‘Zero’ promotional event to celebrate first wedding anniversary together with Virat. On December 11, the couple got married according to Hindu rituals in Tuscany, Italy. Yesterday, the ‘Sui Dhaaga’ actress was spotted at the airport. She was dressed in formal and donned million dollars face on her face.

Reports of Anushka Sharma’s pregnancy were doing the rounds but the actress has put all the rumours to rest. Anushka Sharma termed her pregnancy news totally ‘silly’. She told Hindustan Times, “That (spreading rumours) is something people will do anyway. It’s completely unnecessary and silly as you ultimately can’t hide such a thing. You can hide a marriage but not pregnancy. I feel every female actor goes through it, so people marry you off even before you are hitched and make you a mother before you are pregnant. I don’t pay attention to it, and just laugh these things off since I find them hilarious. When I read about such stuff, I think, ‘where do such absurd things come from?’ Right now, I’m literally working round-the-clock.”

On the work front, the actress, who was last seen in Shahrukh Khan starrer ‘Sui Dhaaga’ will be next seen in ‘Zero’ co-starring Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.

After marriage, Priyanka Chopra adds ‘Jonas’ to her name

On socila media account, Priyanka Chopra added ‘Jonas’ to her name. Priyanka Chopra will now be called Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Celebrity Astro-Numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani predicted that if if the actress she adds her married surname & spells as Priyanka Chopra Jonas, it shall add to a number denoting success & honour!

Jumaani also throws light about her equation with Nick, “She's a water sign and such people travel a lot and do very well away from place of birth. Being an Army officer's daughter, she has been travelling quite often and did extremely well-building her foundation in Mumbai, which adds up to 9 and is surrounded by water too. No wonder she won the Miss World Pageant abroad. Both, Priyanka & Nick are Water & Earth signs respectively. Hence they're made for each other. Just like Earth & Water, that always stay together, they have a lot in common too. For instance, Nick adds to '2', whereas Priyanka Chopra & her nickname 'PC', both add to '2'. They married on the 2nd too!”

Talking more about her personality and characteristics, celebrity astrologer adds, “Number 9's are fighters in all the aspects; they are forceful & fierce. And hence they do well as leaders or in position of authority. No wonder, these qualities incline them sooner or later towards politics. I had also said she would indulge in politics in or around her 45th year.”

Junaami predicted Priyanka’s marriage 13 years ago at the age of 36, "While I had predicted her marriage when she’s 36 around 13 years ago in Filmfare I have some valuable advice for the newlywed couple who have been making headlines of late. Priyanka Chopra is number 9 (18+7+1982=9). Number '9' bearing people are governed by Mars, a fiery planet that we can see from the naked eye. This prompts them into leading from the front. Hence, such people cannot play second fiddle. As they rightly say, 'Men are from Mars'.” Jumaani said.

Priyanka wore designer Sabyasachi’s red lehenga for the Indian wedding and a stunning white Ralph Lauren gown for the Christian wedding. Revealing the details of her wedding gown, she told PeopleTV.com, “For the Western wedding, we had been talking to a bunch of incredible designers, but ultimately when Ralph Lauren approached us, I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years – one for his daughter, his daughter-in-law and his niece. I was blown away. When we went in for the sketch presentation, they created exactly what I envisioned for myself on my wedding day… and I said, ‘Yes’ to the dress.”
