Before turning heads with her Barbie doll look at the Met Gala Monday night, Deepika Padukone posted a funny selfie on Instagram. The photo shows the actress getting her hair done, and the mirror selfie shows her face completely covered with her long tresses. Ishan Khatter, who has worked in films like Beyond the Clouds and Dhadak, likened Deepika's mirror selfie to the beloved Star Wars character Chewbacca.

In another Met Gala news, Mandira Bedi, who has been a victim of online trolls for fashion choices herself, be it her swimsuit photos or noodle strap blouses, took to Twitter to express her opinion about Met Gala and the celebs' unique sartorial choices. She termed the annual ball 'absolutely ridiculous,' clothes-wise.

In another news, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar thanked Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju for supporting him amid a row over his citizenship. Responding to Rijiju's support on Twitter, Akshay committed himself to the cause of the government-led fund-raising initiative Bharat Ke Veer.
