In another news, a video of Priyanka Chopra, who recently attended her very first Jonas Brothers concert, went viral. In the video, as Priyanka erupts into laughter, while waving at her fans, she tripped and almost fell. But Nick, who was by her side in her "oops" moment, held out his arm to help her regain her balance.

Also, dark-comedy film AndhaDhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Tabu, has opened amidst great commercial success in China. According to reports, it has earned close to 100- cr in its extended opening weekend in the East-Asian market.
