Going by the number of Bollywood stars who have vacationed in the Maldives during the last one years, the oceanic paradise , the breathtaking beauty spot, has indeed transformed into the no 1 touristic attraction on the globe.
Why just Bollywoodians ? Even Priyanka Chopra’s brother-in-law Joe Jonas took his newly-married wife British actress Sophie Turner to the azure haven in the Maldives for their honeymoon.
Priyanka Chopra a frequent flyer to Maldives is whispered to have got her bro-in-law an all-expenses paid honeymoon . The trip, it is rumoured, was in-house as long as Joe and Sophie let the world know they had a ball in Maldives.
If truth be told, it doesn’t take much for a celebrity to win an all-expenses paid vacation to the Maldives. All he or she has to do in return is let the world know there is no better place to unwind. And in many ways, that is not a false endorsement.The Maldives is a stunningly scenic and serene place to vacation.And we really don’t need ShahRukh Khan or Malaika Arora to tell us that. But they insisted. Both the media darling flew down to the Maldives(though separately, thank God for small mercies) and gushed from their vacation on social media , pictures duly telling their own story of family-friendly fun and enjoyment.
Why do stars love everything free? Many of them are known to avail of the meals during shooting far beyond their work. Dabbas are filled with the shoot-food and taken home for family and staff.
Freebies are a big turn-on for stars.And what better opportunity for freeloading than an all-expenses vacation in the bluest water of the world? Reliable sources inform that Maldives tourism is pressing hard on the pedal to ensure Bollywood celebrities choose this vacation spot as their no.1 getaway.
A well-placed source from Maldives divulges the desirability of this dishy destination for Mumbai’s Page 3 crowds. “Everybody from Saif-Kareena(with Taimur, of course) and Malaika-Arjun Kapoor to the smaller stars is invited to visit here. In return of the hospitality the Bollywood brigade is only expected to post fun pictures on social media.”
Incidentally , Maldives is only following Mauritius in hosting holidays for Bollywood stars . For many decades now Mauritius has flung open its doors to vacationers from Bollywood. It looks the two islands are now in competition to grab Bollywood’s attention.
