And, you are good to go now! Your IP address is hidden now. Your public IP address is hosted through a remote server in Hong Kong. 

NOTE: You can also use the Location Mode to bypass any censorship implemented in IPs from your country or get localized content from that country. However, to get localized content on BlueStacks, once VPN is connected, you can install BlueStacks from our official website www.bluestacks.com and log onto it using credentials specific to your country, according to which you want your content to be personalized in BlueStacks.
