Atif Aslam, may not be traveling to India but that hasn't changed the fact that he's still running the show and giving them number one hits in Bollywood.

"When I spoke to Atif about the song, he loved the track and wanted to record it. The song was recorded through a video call and I directed him via FaceTime. It was a different experience and also the first time I worked on a song in such a unique manner," said Palash Muchhal, the composer of 'Musafir' from 'Sweetiee Weds NRI'.

After being celebrated as Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year, Rihanna’s philanthropic works were recognized by the prestigious Parsons School of Design at their 69th annual gala on Monday (May 22),
where she spoke on the importance of celebrating the youth. “Thank you to the students,” she said. “Tonight is about you, young men and women, on a global scale, as we know, who are such remarkable beacons of inspiration in every way.

You should be celebrated for creativity, fearlessness, persistence, and determination. You should be celebrated for all the effort that you put into your future, for being different, for not being given enough credit, for not having to use eye cream. My point is, we often tear our youth down when we should be building them up. Our future is in their hands.”
