Monochrome Challenge: Another Trend Our Celebs Can’t Get Over

Published

on

Our Instagram feeds are bombarded with black and white pictures of celebrities and other Instagram users these days. The monochrome challenge is not just another trend that’s gone viral, but it has its own significance attached to it.

 

What is the Monochrome Challenge?

Amidst the deadly pandemic, several terrible news and controversies have surfaced exposing the dark side of the Bollywood industry. Meanwhile, hoping for better days and changes to soon come, today Bollywood Actresses are collectively spreading positivity, love, and confidence by taking up the monochrome pictures to support women. The premise of the “challenge accepted” trend is that these photos promote female empowerment and that nominating friends to take part in the campaign is a way for women to support each other. This monochrome challenge is not the first of its kind as back in 2016, several people and celebrities from all over the world uploaded black and white pictures to raise cancer awareness.

Over the years the photo trend has also been used to “spread positivity.” B-town beauties have been sharing black-and-white pictures to promote women empowerment, and then nominating friends to take part in the campaign in a way for women to support each other.

Almost all Bollywood divas, including Dia Mirza, Malaika Arora, Karisma Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Ananya Panday, Sara Ali Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Rakul Preet Singh, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Sussanne Khan among others were seen sharing their black and white pictures on Instagram and tagging other women to continue the challenge and to keep it consistent.  Check out their pictures!

#ChallengeAccepted: We’re living in times where we now realise the importance of lifting each other up instead of pulling someone down. We are gradually acknowledging the truth that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed to any of us. So, all we have is ‘today’… and we have each other. Let’s join forces together and make each day better for everyone around us. Support our women tribe through the worst times, lend a helping hand (if possible) when you see another woman juggling too many things, and appreciate the efforts one has put in even if they didn’t succeed. We’re all in this together. “Uplift, don’t belittle”❤️💪🏼🤗🧿 ~ Thank you, @kanikasanger, for making me a part of this wonderful tribe that personifies #strength. . . . . . #WomenInspiringWomen #WomenEmpowerment

While Vin Diesel has managed to earn worldwide stardom, and accumulate a wealth of an estimated $160 million, his twin brother, Paul Vincent (Sound editor), prefers to stay out of the spotlight.

By age three, Michael was battling significant developmental delays.

It is hard to believe but they actually are twin sisters. Gisele Bündchen joined her first modelling class with her twin sister Patricia, she was the only one to move up in the industry. Patricia Bündchen, however, didn’t harbour any resentment towards her twin sister and decided to dedicate her time towards helping manage Gisele Bündchen’s career. Over the years, Patricia Bündchen has worked as Gisele’s manager as well as her spokesperson. This arrangement seems to suit them perfectly, especially since Patricia Bündchen is reportedly very shy, compared to Gisele’s outgoing personality. The Celebrity twins support each other in hard times.
