The photo elicited an instant approval from her fans with an overwhelming majority of them calling it cute. One fan wrote, “Music maestro with Hindi cinema’s princess.” Anotrher commented, ” Two legends together. One is acting wala, another singing wala.”

AR Rahman was recently in news after singer Adnan Sami’s daughter Medina accidentally called the singer-composer on FaceTime in the middle of his recording. Far from getting upset, the music maestro, also known as India’s own Mozart, had posted a cute reply in response to Adnan’s apology. He had written, “Dear Adnan ..her Facetime call fixed my grumpy mood ..thanks Medina ..May the Almighty reward you Generously.”

Priyanka had recently faced flak from actor Tanushree Dutta after she called her a survivor. Priyanka addressing Tanushree as a mere survivor had not gone down well the Chocolate actor, who said that she also had a name. She told Zoom TV, “Well, it’s amazing. She (Priyanka Chopra) has finally decided to join the bandwagon. It’s probably a smart thing to do at this point of time. But I just want people to know that I am not going to be reduced to a survivor. I have a name, I have a story and I have this truth that I am trying to get out because it’s not for me but for people who will come forward in the generations to come.”
