Remember when Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra sang the intro to last season’s NFL Thursday Night Kickoff?  Well, it seems that Ms Chopra has moved up the ladder, and will be performing for the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football this season.

Rumor has it, the Bollywood bombshell will be replacing R&B singer CeeLo Green.

Having grown up in both New York and Boston, two major [rival] football cities and coincidentally the two teams playing the night of my big debut, it’s nothing short of surreal to be with NFL Network as the opening act for Thursday Night Football. ‘In My City’ was my first single, it has a very special place in my heart, and I am beyond excited to bring the amazing energy of the track to the NFL’s passionate fans,” said Chopra.

Priyanka’s song In My City, featuring Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas, will be used again this year for the opening of Thursday Night’s Football, when the New York Jets visit the New England Patriots. Woohoo!

Each week for 13 weeks this season, NFL Network will move into a new and exciting city and bring fans from around the world with us for a great game. Priyanka’s single ‘In My City’ is the perfect song to set the stage for Thursday Night Football and to welcome viewers to each city,” said Mark Quenzel, the Senior Vice President of Production and Programming for NFL Network.

Keep up the good work Priyanka!

It’s no surprise that the worlds most beautiful woman, Aishwariya Rai, was offered to appear in an international cosmetic advertisement, along with beauties Sonam Kapoor and Hollywood starlet, Freida Pinto.

A few months back a little birdie told us that the diva’s were shooting an international advertisement abroad, and insider’s say Aishwariya shot her portion while in Cannes earlier this year.  Other international cosmetic ambassadors such as; Eva Longoria,  Jane Fonda and Julianne Moore were also present.  The brands spokesperson said, “The campaign for this very exclusive collection has different versions featuring different groups of ambassadors including Aishwarya Rai and Sonam Kapoor.”

Although both actresses were present during the shooting, the only Indian actress seen in the ad was Freida Pinto.  So what happened, you ask?  Well, from the looks of it, both Aishwariya and Sonam did not make the final cut after all. “The ad has been beautifully made with all the actresses looking stunning. But Ash and Sonam’s absence is quite conspicuous and has taken the industry by surprise. Freida is unmistakable in the sequence but the two are nowhere to be seen.” sources said.

Hmm,  so that leaves us a little confused. Why were Aishwariya and Sonam left out?
