New Delhi:

There’s a brand-new challenge running rampant on social media, the first one that is creating a story, which is harmless and non-controversial unlike other social media challenges like ice bucket challenge of Ki-Ki Challenge. The Dolly Parton challenge is ruling internet are netizens are going all crazy to post a compilation of photos that ranges from of a formal, sober one for LinkedIn and a raunchy one for Tinder.

The Mannequin and Tide Pod challenges have phased out since then (THANK GOD), making way for a brand-new one to come into our collective consciousness: the Dolly Parton Challenge. It all started when Dolly. an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist posted a photo compilation of four "versions" of herself. LinkedIn Dolly looked super profesh in a fitted, checked blazer, while Tinder Dolly was dressed up in a super-sexy Playboy costume. “Get you a woman who can do it all,” she captioned the post, which couldn’t fit the bill better if she tried.

Each photo you chose should for each version should perfectly encapsulate what that particular social media platform is all about. LinkedIn requires a very professional-looking photograph, Facebook's typically a bit more friendly  and outgoing looking, Instagram's all about aesthetic and backdrop and photography skills, and if you're wearing something that shows a little more skin, you might want to consider reserving that pic for your dating profile.

Well, since everyone loves Dolly, celebrities naturally felt inclined to join in on the fun and do their own versions. Kerry Washington, Padmalaxshmi, Will Smith, Miley Cyrus joined in and soon Bollywood followed suit.

Ayushmann Khuranna, Priyanka Chopra, Sara Ali Khan, Karan Johar all are now in the game. Ayushmann does an extended version for the challenge with the looks of his last outing, Dream Girl, Bala for another category, Movies.


For Sara, Insta is her 'A game'; 'Tinder for the flame'; 'For Linkedin one can try to be tame' 'FB for those throwbacks, no shame'

As you know I am a man of many expressions!! Many a time I am asked why I pout so much! Well I don’t have an answer to that! I pout as soon as a camera is within 10 feet of me! I can’t help myself! It’s an inbuilt mechanism that activates itself on its own and no amount of requests for a simile or a candid laugh can take my pout away from me! It’s a part of my lip till fillers replace it...It’s now a part of my personality! I suck my cheeks, squint my eyes...pretend I am Brad Pitt ( in my head) and Voila! You have a 47 year old man who thinks he is Paris Hilton! ( also known as a midlife crisis) ...I am happy! So please don’t rain on my pout parade! ❤ï¸ÂðŸ™Â
