There is little doubt that this week has been an action packed one. Having begun with the hi octane drama at Ocsars with Priyanka Chopra walking down the red carpet, Leonardo Di Caprio getting to take the trophy home (finally), to the war of words at Parliament. But before one  could analyse who tore into whom, the drama shifted to JNU campus, where Kanhaiya Kumar tore into the political fabric of the country. Amidst all these ‘power-packed viral performances’ chances are that you may have missed out on these trending videos.

Fans ‘Fan’ ke peeche

Earlier this week, the fans of Bollywood’s Badshah went wild with his much awaited film Fan’s trailer release. It garnered a whooping four million views in just 24 hours. The 2,51 minute trailer shows  Shahrukh Khan as a superstar  (Aryan Khanna) and also as an obsessive fan (Gaurav). With the trailer looking to recreate the obsessive lover of Darr, it has been viewed 7,314,803 times on YouTube since its release three days ago.

When Suriya turned Rajni

In his first ever Dubsmash, Tamil superstar Suriya raised awareness about voting and elections. While most celebs go the glam way, this star did it hattke. While urging people to  vote in the upcoming elections in Tamil Nadu, Suriya delivers a memorable dialogue from Rajinikanth’s films Muthu (1995). And if you are wondering, if the he was up to Thalaiva’s standards, we bet he was!

Disabled, not defeated

Amir Hussain Lone is a 20 years old Kashmiri loves to play cricket. So do 1.2 billion other Indians, you may say. Amir he does not have arms. He is also the captain of the state’s para-cricket team and when a video of him batting using his shoulders and chin and bowling with his feet surfaced, it became a rage. Shot by  Barcroft TV, the video is a touching tale of the boy who lost both his arms at the age of eight and despite odds did not give up his love for the sport.
