After leaving a mark on the world with the inspirational videos from experts from all walks of life, TED Talks is finally making its way towards India and our excitement knows no boundaries. That this show will be hosted by none other Bollywood’s Badshah Shah Rukh Khan makes it harder for us to wait for the show’s premiere. Shah Rukh Khan is known for his wit and humour, so when he dons the hat of a host for ‘TED Talks India: Nayi Soch’, we are sure none of us will be able to take our eyes off from the screen.

Although the show is expected to premiere in October, the line-up of speakers are already making us lose our minds. Director Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor and Writer-poet Javed Akhtar are among the speakers who have already shot their episodes. Well, apart from them there’s another special guest who will reportedly appear on the show. And that guest is Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai. According to a report in India Today, Pichai was teleported from California (Palo Alto) via Beam, a telepresence robot. The episode was reportedly shot on Monday, August 28.

For those who don’t know, this is not for the first time that Sundar Pichai and Shah Rukh Khan are interacting with each other on a reality show. However, their seats have been exchanged. In the year 2014, during the release of ‘Happy New Year’, Shah Rukh Khan joined Sundar Pichai as a guest for a Fireside Chat at the Googleplex. The show was undeniable the most hilarious and amazing interaction where Pichai and SRK brought the entire house down with their charm. Now that their roles have been reversed and SRK is going to interview Pichai and ask him about his journey, it will be fascinating to see them recreate that magic.

Priyanka Chopra who has taken our nation’s name and fame a step further when she started her Hollywood venture, still has to struggle every now and then to prove her loyalty to India.

Priyanka's Independence Fourth July Tweet Made Indians Furious On Twitter© India Today

Her Namaste that she never forgets just like an accessory which she carries on every Hollywood occasion—whether in an interview or the Oscars—doesn’t seem convincing enough to the Indian viewers as it so happened that America recently celebrated its independence day and PC wished her followers a happy 4th of July, only not foreseeing the aftermath.

Happy Independence Day second home.. #4thOfJuly2017 #RedWhiteBlue

Albeit the tweet was just a general post, it did rub a lot of people the wrong way. Several users bashed her on the comments for calling America her second home and have posted some really nasty comments.

It started off with blaming her for not doing Bollywood movies.

Madam first he Bol do, waise v aap ab Bollywood k movies to karte nahe.

And then dragged Akshay Kumar out of nowhere.

Further trying to accuse her of not being national enough.

How many homes you have Priyanka? Is India your Third Home?????

While finally some of her Indian fans had her back.

National award winner, Padma Shri recipient, 5 Filmfares (first and only one to win every acting category)… that’s Priyanka Chopra!

And called her an inspiration for India.

The actress paid no heed to the nasty comments and was seen raising temperatures at the Paris Fashion Week. The ‘Quantico’ actress looked like an angel in a white asymmetrical Georgio Armani couture dress, and was spotted hanging out with the most famous faces of Hollywood.

Amazing to be with an exceptional group of women celebrating the house of @armani . Lovely evening. @naomiwatts #sophialoren #katewinslet @isabelle.huppert #tangWei
