From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to P V Sindhu, many such renowned personalities have made us proud in 2016. Due to their achievements, work, and contribution, we don’t feel sad about this year ending. In fact, they are like a ray of hope that makes us believe that our 2017 can be better now. In the upcoming year, we have many reasons to look back and have smiles.
Here’s the list of people we want to thank this year for giving us a hope of making our 2017 better:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi
When our Indian soldiers were attacked in Uri, our hearts cried out to the loss of their lives and pain their families were going through. Amidst all the sorrow, our PM launched a surgical attack into Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) to take revenge for the attack on Uri. This surgical strike proved that Indians aren’t weak to take any cruelty and wrongdoings on our soldiers.
P V Sindhu And Sakshi Malik
These girls made our country proud at the Rio Olympics this year. P V Sindhu won a silver for Badminton and Sakshi won a bronze medal for wrestling. Their achievements made us believe that girls can do anything and everything. It taught us that in the coming years we need to realise the power of a woman and bring up more girls like them.
Shah Rukh Khan For FAN
Shah Rukh Khan is the only superstar who has a large global fan following without working in any Hollywood or international films. His work in Bollywood only has helped him achieve this kind of recognition and love. And guess what? SRK, as a token of thanks made a wonderful film FAN for all his fans. The film didn’t fare well at the domestic market, but is will be one of the special films for all of his fans around the world. His hardwork, dedication, perseverance, and determination to portray Gaurav, which showed the traces of his fans will always be lauded. He is the only actor who gave his fans a movie based on them with a twist.
It was a festival like atmosphere in the country when the Coldplay band visited India for the Global Citizen Festival India. Around 80,000 people attended the live festival. It was for a noble cause, but the band did make their fans happy for the entire life for performing live in the country.
Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the best cricketers we have. Well, he is also a very good person. When many people were mocking his alleged beau Anushka Sharma for his not-so-good performance, like a gentleman he slammed all the haters. His post on Twitter was a tight slap to all those who disrespect women and call them a jinx.

Our desi girl has successfully won the hearts of videsi log. She is not playing a lead role in English Tv series Quantico, she has made everyone head over heels with her sizzling red carpet appearances at the People’s Choice Awards, Oscar and Emmys. From appearing on the cover of international magazine covers, being a guest on popular worldwide talk shows like The Ellen Degeneres Show and many others, to dining with the Obamas, she has become the queen of hearts. She is also playing a main villain in the Hollywood film Baywatch and we cannot wait to see her as sexy vamp Victoria.
When Salman Khan made the insensitive ‘raped woman’ comment, many celebs avoided talking about it to not ruin their equation with him. However, one such celeb who stood against him bearing all the dirty threats, abuses, and slut-shaming comments was singer Sona Mohapatra. Bhai fans left no stone turned to bring down her character and give her death, rape, and acid attack threats. But, she showed that one mustn’t shy away from raising voice against the wrong even if the other person is a senior of has greater influence.

Aamir Khan For Dangal
Aamir gave us one of the best films of 2016, Dangal. The film won hearts and also proving a winner at the box office collection. Based on the life of former wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita, this film is full of inspiration, emotions, dreams, and power. The film teaches a lot about life and success in just a few hours. Director Nitesh Tiwari should be given credit to think of bringing this story on the silver screen and directing Aamir and other characters so brilliantly.
Kareena Kapoor Khan For Not Hiding Pregnancy
2016 can be termed as the best year for our gorgeous Kareena. The actress had her first child with Saif Ali Khan. What was amazing about her pregnancy was like other actresses, Kareena didn’t hide in a shell. She was confident and lived her life to the fullest during those 9 months. From posing to shutterbugs and giving us pregnancy outfit goals, Bebo has proved that pregnancy is something to be proud of, enjoyed, and embraced happily rather than sitting and getting worried about it.
