Travel advisers and experts say the past few days have seen inquiries about tour packages for Maldives go up exceptionally, with a lot of honeymooners enquiring about special destinations in the islands. Many who were hitherto undecided about their destination and were confused between a few seem to have suddenly made up their mind for the Indian Ocean islands.

Notably, Bipasha and her beau actor Karan Singh Grover tied the knot in a widely attended wedding on April 30, and flew on to the Maldives for their honeymoon this week. From the pristine beaches of the destination, both have been posting wonderfully romantic and exotic pictures, obviously having a gala time.

“Given its proximity to India, Maldives has in recent years caught up as a popular destination among Indian tourists. But, Bipasha seems to have driven its popularity to the next level, especially among young couples who are planning their honeymoon. Interestingly, the inquiries and requests for honeymoon packages to Maldives have suddenly gone up this week. Maldives tourism will certainly see an increased footfall from Indians this year,” says Kapil Goswamy, Founder and MD Bigbreaks.com.

When asked by what number the travellers to Maldives have increased, Kapil Goswamy says: “It would be relevant to mention that post the stories and images appearing in the press, there has been a big increase of 20% in the number of queries we are getting for Maldives, particularly from young couples planning their honeymoons for later in the year. The exact numbers will be revealed only after a few months when the trips take place, for now the interest for that destination is clearly up.

He also added that the current size of tourist industry of Maldives has much been boosted after the honeymoon pictures of Bipasha Basu? He adds, “According to figures available, during 2014, the Maldives got about 46000 tourists from India , and this number stood at close to 50000 for 2015.  With all the press reports and images of Bipasha Basu’s honeymoon in the Maldives, this number is set to rise dramatically (by upto 20%) during 2016 and is expected to grow more.

Neha Dhupia bags The Angries Award!

Taking the city by storm, RED from The Angry Birds Movie is out awarding celebrities who are ANGRY, and for a good reason. After bestowing Sonakshi Sinha and RJ Malishka with The Angries awards, the ANGRY BIRD has found the next angry celebrity – Bollywood darling and former Miss India Neha Dhupia. Of the many things that we love about the actress, the ones that we probably love the most are her strong opinions and her ability to take a stand. In the recent past the actress tweeted about the potholes menace in the city and little did she know that there would be a protest outside her house for voicing her honest opinion! This not only made the actress very angry but also made her the third winner of what's turning out to be an award to reckon with, The Angries!

The former Miss India & Bollywood Actress, who does not believe in suppressing opinions, received The Angries for Being Angry at Restricted Freedom of Speech

On getting the Award, the actress says, “It makes me angry to be forced to live with the fact that despite having the freedom of speech, we still aren't truly free to speak our minds. People and situations around us can be so restrictive and binding that it challenges the core of free speech. This Award is actually a reminder for me to never give up on my effort to voice my opinion, no matter what the odds. Also, it feels good to know that it has registered in someone's head that I'm here to speak my mind and hopefully one day, I’ll get a chance to do so without any barriers."

Any guesses on who will receive The Angries Award next? Find out why the Birds are so angry when you catch The Angry Birds Movie at a theatre near you in English, Hindi and Tamil from today - 27th May!
