From Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Thappad’ to Deepika Padukone’s ‘The Intern’ – here are posts that went viral this week – Times of India


It is the world of social media and Bollywood actors and actresses have now learnt the tricks of the trade to make sure to be in news. They are no longer dependent just on their managers and have literally taken matters in their own hands. From tweeting and sharing Insta and FB posts, to putting up Insta stories, they know it all. And we are here to give you a round-up of which social media posts went viral this week.

Deepika Padukone’s announcement about the Bollywood remake of ‘The Intern’


Just when Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak was leaving the theatres with an average reaction from the audience, Deepika Padukone dropped another surprise for her fans. She made the announcement of her first ever collaboration with Rishi Kapoor in the Bollywood remake of the 2015 comedy-drama The Intern. Not only will it be a delight to see Deepika and Rishi share screen space, but them recreating the roles originally played by the super talented Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro will be another spectacle altogether. With her post, Deepika surely created a stir in the industry, showing the world that she was on her way to becoming an international star. Have a look at her post that got her fans excited on social media:

Priyanka Chopra’s emotional post after the Grammy Awards 2020

After travelling to Davos as part of her duties as the ambassador for UNICEF, Priyanka Chopra was all set for the Grammy Awards 2020. Her pre-Grammy’s outfit – a chic satin gown was to die for and made her look like a Goddess. However, her pearly white custom Ralph & Russo gown with a plunging neckline didn’t get her as much praise on the red carpet. The deep neckline that flaunted her pierced belly button attracted some criticism on various points. While some just found it in bad taste, some compared it with Jennifer Lopez’s similar green dress from the Grammy Awards 2000. After the social media going abuzz, debating over whether PeeCee should have picked the outfit or not, the globetrotter decided to pen an introspective note on her Instagram account. This post too went pretty viral and debates subsequently died down. Here’s what Priyanka wrote:

Taapsee Pannu’s trailer of ‘Thappad’

On Thursday, Taapsee Pannu shared the first-look poster of the Anubhav Sinha film ‘Thappad’. She also asked her fans to watch out for the trailer which was to release on Friday. The next day, as promised, the actress shared the trailer of her ambitious project, ‘Thappad’ on her social media page and there was no stopping her. The views increased by the second and all people talked about on social media was ‘Thappad’. It was instantly compared to Shahid Kapoor-Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh as well owing to the controversy over a slap in the 2019 movie. The trailer is hard-hitting to say the least and Taapsee has outdone herself even in the trailer which is being circulated rapidly over social media. Here’s Taapsee’s post:

Ekta Kapoor revealing one-year-old Ravie’s face for the first time

Around the same time last year, when Ekta Kapoor announced that she had become the proud mother of a baby boy via surrogacy, it was an emotional moment for all in the Kapoor family as well as for Ekta’s close friends. This was followed by the occasional posts of baby Ravie with his mommy, mama Tusshar Kapoor, grandfather Jitendra and so on. However, none of the posts ever revealed the baby’s face. Whether superstition or just the wish for some privacy, Ekta was careful not to let anyone see her baby’s face for a whole year. Finally when Ravie turned 1 this Sunday, the TV czarina decided that it was time for the world to see baby Ravie’s sweet face. Her video post sprinkled with pictures throughout the year with her close ones and the baby, along with Jitendra’s iconic ‘Baar baar din yeh aye’ playing in the background, made for the cutest post ever. Fans and friends couldn’t help sharing the video with each other and we are not surprised. Have a look:


Sara Ali Khan’s pre-weight loss selfie video

Sara Ali Khan kickstarted the week with a throwback video from her pre-weight loss days. In the video, Sara is seen focusing the camera on her fellow travellers’ faces as they are fast asleep. The video ends when her two friends wake up and are clearly unhappy about being filmed when asleep. Sara added a witty caption to the video, “Presenting Sara ka Sara Sara 🏻‍♀️ Let’s make ‘light’ of what it was… Let’s also make it lighter than what it was.”

This was all that took the internet by storm this week. Stay tuned for the next batch of viral posts next weekend!
