It will be the celebration of Indian cinema in Spain when Bollywood stars like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha will perform at the 17th Edition of The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) in June.

To be held in Madrid, capital of Spain, the four-day cinematic celebration will start on June 23. Bollywood stars Farhan Akhtar and Shahid Kapoor will host the gala night.

Farhan, who was here to announce the 17th edition of the film festival along with actor Anil Kapoor, can’t wait to share the stage with Shahid.

“We had a wonderful time. There is a certain ease and chemistry which we have with each other and I look forward to it,” he told IANS.

#Blessed. Priyanka Chopra claims she doesn’t have to diet or exercise to maintain her svelte frame.

PHOTOS: Diet Secrets of the Stars
The Quantico star — who is appearing in the Baywatch remake with Zac Efron, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kelly Rohrbach — told Us Weekly at the Time 100 Gala in New York City on Tuesday, April 26, that she hasn’t joined her costars in the gym because, well, she doesn’t have to.

“I’m actually not a big fan of working out,” the 33-year-old said. “I have genetically blessed Indian genes where I don’t need to train, but Kelly Rorhbach has been trying to convince me to train with her, and every morning when she tries to get me to go with her, I’m just like, ‘Oh, can I just get a half an hour more sleep?’ Or I say my tummy’s hurting and make excuses. But they train like beasts! I just try and hide out with my burger.”

The meat-loving actress added that she doesn’t diet either. “It’s bad. I know,” she told Us.

While Johnson and Efron break a sweat between takes, Chopra has found other ways to bond with her costars on Tybee Island, GA.

“We don’t take ourselves too seriously,” Chopra said. “We are doing a big cast dinner tomorrow. … [And] in between shots we are hanging out on the beach.”


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron are in the middle of filming Baywatch, showing lots of skin, and so they are both super ripped at the moment. “Dwayne and Zac both look like beasts right now,” co-star Priyanka Chopra told at the Time 100 Gala on Tuesday. “They both can, like, pop pennies on their abs right now. They really can,” she said.

“I have to wear extra-high heels so that I can look intimidating, because I’m the villain in the movie. Otherwise, you know, I’m so little and so tiny, and I have to look up to them, and it doesn’t work.”

Chopra says that everyone in the Baywatch cast is extra-ripped. “So I hide behind my towels and eat my burgers because everyone else is on salad, and I feel guilty,” she said. “Except Kelly Rohrbach, who eats pizza in secret.” She says that DiCaprio-ex Rohrbach is really funny. “I love her because we sit and eat pizza together — even though she looks ridiculously sick in that swimsuit.” (Eventually, the Quantico star admitted that she also looks pretty great in her swimsuit, despite the pizza and burgers.)

Chopra said being named as one of Time‘s 100 most influential people and being on the cover of the magazine blew her mind. “I’ve been in America just six months now, my show aired only in September, and it’s so great to have such an incredible reception in a country where I don’t hail from, you know? It feels amazing to just be acknowledged for my work, and nothing else.”


From one influential woman to another! Priyanka Chopramight be one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential honorees this year, but as it turns out she is easily taken by another powerful individual: Kate Middleton.

“I love Kate Middleton,” the Quantico star told HELLO! on Tuesday at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City. “I think she is so great and she’s so graceful.”

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge recently visited the TV star’s native India, where they mingled with well-known Bollywood names at a glittering reception. However, sadly for Priyanka, she missed out on her invitation to meet the royal couple because of work.

At the time, “I was shooting my show in Montréal at that time and Baywatch in Miami,” the 33-year-old admitted, though she is hopeful for a royal encounter in the future. Priyanka said, “I’m sure there will be an opportunity where my path will cross with them.”

While she was unable to hang out with William and Kate, the Baywatch star has been in good company with her hunky co-stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and newly-singleZac Efron while filming the upcoming movie. “The boys are amazing,” she confessed. ”They’re just super funny. I’m having such a great time with them. They’ve become such nice friends.”

Not only have the leading men’s looks made an impression on Priyanka, but she has also taken note of their eating habits. “I’m just surprised that they look the way they do and they eat the way they do, you know?” she revealed. “I never thought that could happen, but they’re eaters. They love their food.”


Sorry swim fans, but you’ll have to remember that Priyanka Chopra won’t be donning the iconic red bathing suit in the upcoming Baywatch movie, starring Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. “I’m not one of the lifeguards,” Priyanka Chopra told Vulture at the Time 100 gala Tuesday night. “I’m the interruption in their slow-motion running.” Chopra plays Victoria Leeds, the evil oil tycoon who will make environmental trouble for our muscular heroes. “Whenever they think they have it easy, I’m mean to them,” said Chopra. “Really evil to them. And it’s hard because now I’ve become friends with everyone, so whenever we do those scenes we all burst out laughing because I’m really, really mean in the movie.” Maybe she’s the one who tripped poor Zac Efron.


The Hindi film industry and Priyanka Chopra’s fans are now more than familiar with her jet-setting ways and super-packed schedule. The actor is currently working on two international projects. Alongside, she is also managing her acting career in India. But that’s not it.

Recently, she was awarded the Padma Shri, and she also made it to the cover of a popular American magazine for a special issue that featured the world’s 100 most influential people. “A few moments in your life take your breath away, and this honour is one of them. I am completely overwhelmed,” Priyanka had told HT Café after the issue hit the stands. Here, the “perennially tired” star tells us more.

Should we call you Padma Shri Priyanka Chopra from now on?
That’s going to be my title (laughs). I hope to keep doing good work to [continue to] be worthy of the Padma Shri. I think it’s a huge encouragement; it is exactly what you want, as an actor. I hope to just continue working, that’s it.

You have come a long way, from living in Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh) to bagging the Miss World title, and then entering Bollywood.
I am grateful for the work I get to do, regardless of how much hard work I put into it. I am glad that I have the ability to keep up with it. I want to continue doing it for as long as I can.

Has the Padma Shri put any pressure on you to become more responsible?
I have always been a responsible person. I was raised like that. So, I have never felt , “Oh, ab toh responsible hona padega (oh, now I better be responsible).” I think that’s a bit pretentious, and I was never like that. People need to be who they are. You should be your true self, and your art has to reflect that. You have to be lauded or awarded for who you are, and not for who you are trying to be.

You’re making waves internationally. But do you ever fear losing ground back in India?
I hope I don’t. I hope I have created enough space [for myself in Bollywood]. Even right now, I have some really amazing film offers. I don’t prioritise my movies on the basis of where they are made. It’s not about the country, I am just giving importance to content. Whether it’s my TV series or my Hollywood film, they both are going to be watched in India, too, as much as they will be watched in any other country.

How do you manage to travel so much, and still handle all your professional commitments?
If you want anything in life, you have to make a choice. People think I am perennially tired, and I want to scream at them sometimes (laughs). But that’s a natural emotion, I guess. What happens is that your entire life gets scheduled to a T. So, many times, you don’t even have a moment to yourself. Then I always tell myself that I am doing something that’s bigger than me. It’s not just about me; so many other people are also involved in doing what I am doing. I can’t give excuses. So, I power through the exhaustion, the jet lag, and everything else, to just keep going on.

Earlier, you had spoken about how Indian actors tend to get stereotyped in foreign industries. Now, with you and Deepika Padukone doing films in Hollywood, do you think things are changing?

I don’t know whether things are changing for everyone or not, but I know that what I am doing is very important for me. From the beginning, I was clear that I didn’t want to just play a pretty, exotic Indian princess or any part like that. I wanted my role to mean something. In fact, when I was approached for my American TV show, I told the makers that there are certain things I have in mind, and I don’t want to compromise on those. I told them that I wanted to play a part for its merit; it should have nothing to do with my ethnicity. I am an actor first, and the world needs to look at artistes like that.

Did you maintain the same rule with your Hollywood film too?
Yes, even in Baywatch, my role is quite unconventional. I am playing the antagonist in it, and it’s great fun. So, my path has always been very different, and I have walked it differently. I hope things are changing. I am doing my bit, and I am so glad that actors like Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur have paved the way for people like me to come and stand my ground, and say, “This is how I want to be treated.”

Quick take
No bikini for PC

I am not playing a lifeguard in my Hollywood film. So, no, I will not be seen in the iconic red swimsuit.

In touch with Deepika
I spoke to her after the release of Bajirao Mastani, but not since then.

Back in India
I will be back in India in about a month. I will be able to finish the shoot of my show and my film in approximately that time frame.


So I asked on Twitter last week if anyone would be interested in doing a birthday project for Priyanka. Many people said yes so here we are! I know it’s really early but I want to start now so I’m not rushing to get everything done. Keep reading below to get involved! I hope you will join me in making this year extra special for PC 🙂 There will be about 2 or 3 different parts to complete this project and I will post each part separately as to not overwhelm you with everything.

Part 1: The video

For this part we’re going to make a video, but it won’t be your typical Happy Birthday video. There will be two sections to this video and you can choose to participate in one or both! I will need all video submissions by June 3rd.

Sections 1: One word to describe Priyanka
This section will include fans describing Priyanka in one word (ie Passionate). All you have to do is record a video of yourself saying the word. So if my word is Passionate, all I’ll do is record a video of myself saying “Passionate.” That’s it! So simple. It takes 5 seconds 🙂 No background noise, music etc. When recording your video please speak loud and clear so we can hear you. To ensure that I don’t have a dozen of the same words please let me know what word you plan on using BEFORE you send me my video, that way I know if it’s been used or not. You can email me, dm me on twitter, instagram, to let me know your word. The sooner you let me know the better!

Section 2: Why does Priyanka inspire you?
This section will include fans sharing why Priyanka inspires you, how she has influenced you etc. But instead of speaking we will be sharing them as written messages (or in another creative way). I want you to write WHY because I don’t just want people to send me “PC inspires me because she’s amazing.” Know what I mean? Make sure to also include the footage of you writing your message AND showing it to the camera. (See video example below)

How can I display my message? Here are some suggestions, but the possibilities are endless! You can write on your hand/arm, decorate a poster, sidewalk chalk/whiteboard, use notecards etc. Get creative! Please try to make your handwriting as clear and readable as possible.

To Sum up

– Record a video of yourself saying one word that describes Priyanka.
– Let me know what word you plan on using before you send me your video.
– Record a video of yourself sharing why Priyanka inspires you as a written message (include footage of you writing + sharing it to the camera)
– Make sure your videos don’t have background noise or music.
– You can choose to participate in one or both parts.
– Once you have recorded your video, upload it to YouTube, Dropbox or send it as an attachment in an email and leave the editing to me!
– All videos must be sent to me by June 3rd. That’s plenty of time!

I can’t wait to see all your videos! Here’s how you can contact me: Twitter, Instagram, Email.
