  3. Bollywood is a small universe where, sometimes, it feels like things which are happening appear to be straight out of a Bollywood movie itself, literally. From breaking up to moving on to a new relationship with great ease, our favourite celebs surely put on a brave face when it comes to getting their personal life out in public. Here are 6 celebrities who ended up dating the exes of their fellow actors and proved that moving on is not so bad after all: 1. Alia Bhatt © Instagram While her professional life is one of the most successful outings in the country, her personal life has been in the news for over 2 years now. Once upon a time, Alia and Katrina Kaif were BFF’s and went on record with their friendship as well, making appearances on chat shows and even taking vacations together.

Priyanka Chopra © Instagram The ‘desi’ girl who is living life Queen size in LA, was a queen back home as well before packing bags for married bliss with Nick Jonas. PC has had a fair share of relationship rumours in Bollywood but one of the most talked-about developments was her alleged romance with Shahid Kapoor, who was earlier dating Kareena Kapoor. 3.

The two made it Insta-official long ago and ever since then, they have been going strong. 4.

  4. After seven hours, the Indian stock exchange deleted the tweet and apologised for the "human error"
  5. Irrfan Khan's demise on April 29, 2020, left everyone mourning and in tears. Irrfan’s death has personally affected so many people and he will always be remembered fondly. It’s his son Babil who has been keeping him and his memories alive for all his well-wishers and fans. Babil has been involved in the process of filmmaking as he is learning the nuisances of it. He keeps sharing his learnings on Instagram and today, posted a picture of the cover of the book Actors On Acting, signed by his father Irrfan. Sharing the post, he wrote, "Up for lending (sic)." "Irrfan in New York for The Namesake," the legendary actor had written on the book. View this post on Instagram On the post, one Instagram user asked him, "Sir, when will you come into the field of acting? (sic). To which, Babil replied, "I am already in the field of acting, when I will appear in a film is the question. Once I have graduated around May, I will start looking into offers (sic)." © Babil Khan Instagram On January 7, Irrfan's birth anniversary, Babil shared an unseen video of his parents, Irrfan and Sutapa Sikdar. He wrote, "You never identified with institutions such as contractual marriage and birthday celebrations. Perhaps, that is why I don’t remember anyone’s birthdays because you never remembered mine and never encouraged me to remember yours. It was just normal to us what seemed absurd from the outside, we celebrated every day (bringing personal experiential authenticity to the cliche). On the occasion, Mamma would have to remind us both; but this time I could not forget yours if I tried. It’s your birthday, Baba. Shoutout to all the technologically inept parents, notice that they did not finish saying that they miss me (sic)." View this post on Instagram We wish that Babil continues the legacy of his father in the industry and gives us films that are worth appreciating like Irrfan. View the full article
  6. There’s no denying the fact that nepotism exists in our industry but why overlook the stories of people who entered the industry as outsiders and are now part of the same Bollywood. Apart from Kapoors and Bhatts, some people are running the industry and they managed to break through the biased industry norms. Only based on their talent and dedication, they turned their fate and their stories are so inspiring that they can be turned into stand-alone movies. 1. Shah Rukh Khan View this post on Instagram He might be the king of Bollywood now but he was a nobody when he saw the dreams of conquering Mumbai. SRK quit his masters in Mass Communication to pursue his acting career. With no connections, he made it big. From TV to Bollywood, his rags to riches can be an ideal script for a movie that has both romance and drama. 2. Akshay Kumar View this post on Instagram Akshay Kumar dropped out of college during higher education and went to Thailand to learn martial arts and be a chef. He had no money to even stay at a rented accommodation and now, he is probably the most business-minded in the industry. With his movie, we might get an insight into how he changed his fate and became one of the bankable stars. 3. Boman Irani View this post on Instagram Today, Boman Irani might be one of the versatile actors we have but he started his journey as a waiter. In his own words, “As a kid I had a speech defect, I had a lisp, I used to actually talk like my character Virus from 3 Idiots. To make matters worse I was dyslexic, who was not good at academics. People used to call me Boman the duffer. So I decided to do a course to be a waiter and joined The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel as a waiter. I worked there for 2 years and put my heart into it. My granny used to say – ‘gali ka mochi bano, toh bhi sabse acha mochi bano’, basically be the best in anything you do and that has stayed with me always.” When his mother met with an accident, he started to sit at his ancestral bakery story. In an interview, he said, “I started sitting in our shop. I sat in the shop for over 14 years. It was a long time. So imagine sitting in a shop and saying to myself that I think I am a creative person, I think I need to do something with my ability to either write, or to understand, or to put down words, or to break down a screenplay and understand it…I think I am passionate about all that. Actually, I have been a student in cinema since I was 12-years-old. As a kid, my mom used to encourage me to see films every day, over and over again. She told me to observe cinematography, acting, music, camera movements, lyrics, lighting… everything. I used to watch movies 30 to 40 times at Alexander theater, so I was passionate about cinema. So what do I do? At 32 nobody was making me an actor because that’s a funny age, you are neither too young nor too old to play characters. So what’s the next best thing to do? I bought a camera from the money that I had saved from the tips I got at Taj as a waiter and decided to become a photographer.” It was quite late in life that he made it big so his story can actually be a perfect plot. 4. Nawazuddin Siddiqui View this post on Instagram From a watchman to an actor that many take inspiration from is surely a story that we would want to see on the big screens. In an interview with DNA, Nawaz shared his journey and said, “belong to a family of farmers. We are based in this village called B-U-D-H-A-N-A, in district Muzaffarnagar of Uttar Pradesh. There wasn’t much scope for education there. But somehow my siblings (7 brothers and 2 sisters) and I managed to study. In my village, only three things work ,gehu (wheat), ganna (sugarcane), and gun. The fear this gun culture instilled made us move out of our village. It was much later that I started taking interest in theatre. After completing my studies, I took up jobs like that of a chief chemist in Baroda. Then I joined a theatre group in Delhi. Since there is no money in the theatre I had to take up a job as a watchman. All these things happened simultaneously. Then I enrolled myself in the National School of Drama (NSD), passing out in 1996. I worked in Delhi for four years before finally moving to Mumbai in 2000.” 5. Arshad Warsi View this post on Instagram Arshad has had a life full of hardships. He was 14 when he lost his father and everything just downhill for the actor. He dropped out of school in 10th grade to earn a living. From being a door-to-door salesman to working in a photo lab, Arshad had worked hard to sustain. Even though he has been a part of the industry for a long, he still hasn’t got the due. His life journey should surely be shown on the big screen. Would you want to see their stories on the big screens? View the full article

  10. 2020 has turned out to be a dark and grim year for most of us. From shootings being halted to film releases being postponed, the entertainment industry went for a toss and things are now finally getting back to normal with movies releasing on the silver screen once again. This year made us realize that if the content is meaningful, we can see it on our laptops. But even then, as die-hard fans, we all have missed going to the theatres. 2020 gave us some meaningful movies and 2021 looks even more promising with the list of movies that will surely be on everyone's binge-watching lists. Here are the top 10 Bollywood movies to look forward to in 2021: 1. ‘83 View this post on Instagram ‘83 chronicles the Indian cricket team's win at the 1983 World Cup. The film stars Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev. The movie has been in the news for a long time now as it was scheduled to release in 2020.

Thalaivi Kangana Ranaut is all set to play the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha in the upcoming biopic Thalaivi. In an interview with Mid-Day, she said that she had to take hormonal pills to gain weight for the character. “Actors usually get the apparel and appearances on point, but not the physical transformation. Vijay wanted me to resemble her as closely as possible. She [Jayalalithaa] endured a drastic physical transformation in her life. Having grown up as a Bharatanatyam dancer, she had an hour-glass figure. Then, when she joined politics, she had an accident that demanded that she be injected with huge doses of steroids. While we could not depict all of that, we did take measures,” said Kangana. Thanks to all this effort put into making this film, it looks really promising. 4.

  11. Bollywood has always been under-qualified to give its audience believable and non-cringey kiss scenes. Most of the time such scenes in Bollywood are unreal and even though the actors make a lot of effort to make it seem romantic and original, most of us end up feeling awkward. So, here are 5 disgusting Bollywood kiss scenes that made our childhood awkward. Hrithik Roshan & Aishwarya Rai In Dhoom 2 © YRF Something about this kiss made me want to switch the television off and most of us had a lot of expectations from this on-screen couple but most of us were left disappointed. John Abraham & Kangana Ranaut In Shootout At Wadala This wasn’t a romantic kiss but still could’ve been directed in a more realistic way that didn’t make people like us ruin our days just because of a bad kiss. Emraan Hashmi & Jacqueline Fernandez In Murder 2 In this film, many scenes made sure that we watched the film alone and also we couldn’t watch it with our family. However, the kissing scene of Emraan and Jacqueline was next level awkward and made us cringe as it looked like he was moisturizing Jacqueline’s lips. Ranveer Singh & Anushka Sharma In Band Baja Baaraat © YRF This kiss looked disgusting as Ranveer Singh couldn’t leave Anushka Sharma’s lower lip and instead of making us feel romantic, the kiss made us want to throw up. SRK & Katrina Kaif In Jab Tak Hai Jaan The audience expected this kiss would be extremely fun to watch but when we saw it on screen, it wasn’t what we expected at all. This one made us extremely awkward and SRK looked like a wax statue while kissing. View the full article
  12. Actor Sonu Sood recently expressed how the film industry preaches about having unity but in reality, doesn’t practice it. He also said that he is extremely disappointed to see some members of the fraternity question it. According to Bollywood Hungama, he said in an interview that the film fraternity is still divided by barriers and that the chains that should tie the industry together are completely missing. View this post on Instagram On asking about the constant media trial the film industry underwent this year, Sonu Sood said, “Of course I was bothered, but what really upset me was seeing some of our own people speak against the industry. This is that industry for which he leaves our homes and families. It is an industry that fulfils dreams. And now, to see people point fingers at it, you can imagine how it must have affected us.” He said, “We all like to think we’re one big family, but the chains that can bind us are missing. People align themselves with others, no one reaches out to praise you or to offer advice. Everyone is constrained. They say they are a part of Bollywood, but they’ve created barriers around themselves.” View this post on Instagram Earlier, Kangana Ranaut was criticized by many people from the film industry for suggesting that it’s a bad place. She also blatantly said that 99% of the industry is exposed to drugs and was slammed by many actors such as Jaya Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Hansal Mehta, and others.

  13. Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan’s Coolie No 1 has received backlash from all corners. The film is the 45th directorial venture of David Dhawan who also helmed the original, which featured Govinda, Karisma Kapoor, and Kader Khan in the lead roles. Just after the release, it became the target of memes who had issues with scenes in the movie that had no logical explanation. In one of the scenes, Varun Dhawan is seen running atop a moving train and jumping off it in the nick of time to save a child. This scene was trolled mercilessly by people and nothing has impressed the audience, be it acting or the plot. They felt Sara and Varun are trying to imitate Karisma and Govinda which completely backfired. The film has only been rated 1.4 on IMDb, which is even lower than the worst-rated IMDB Bollywood movies of all time. © IMDB Here are the movies that rank higher than Coolie No 1 but were dissed by the audience: 1. Welcome To New York © IMDB Sonakshi Sinha and Diljit Dosanjh’s movie was ridiculed for being a flat satire on Bollywood’s ways and award ceremonies. People didn’t like the movie and termed it to be not worth one’s money and time. 2. Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag © IMDB We have grown up listening to how people have hated this particular movie. People called it a bad spoof of a cult movie Sholay and it didn’t work out in RGV's favour. In an interview, RGV took a dig at his own movie and said, “one thing about Aag that makes me happy is that the film did manage to provide mass entertainment if only in ripping it apart.” 3. Himmatwala And Humshakals © IMDB The remake of Jeetendra starrer 1983 release Himmatwala starring Ajay Devgn was termed as a painful watch. From the dialogues to the story, people bashed every aspect of the movie mercilessly. © IMDB Humshakals also was seen in the same light as people called it a worthless comedy as it had no humour and was hiding behind nine popular names who too couldn’t elevate the poorly written story. 4. Prem Aggan © IMDB If you have been a fan of Pretentious Movie Reviews, you might recall their review of this Fardeen Khan movie. The movie had so many sexual innuendos that calling it cringey would be an understatement. 5. Race 3 © IMDB With awful performances, this Salman Khan film was bashed by both the critics and viewers alike. The movie is so bad that it has been rated as the worst film of all time. Have you watched these movies? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article

  16. Bollywood is popular for its songs all across the world and why not! After all, we have some catchy songs, mesmerizing music, and intense lyrics. But, there is another side to our songs too- some songs are just crass and don’t make any sense. Each year the creativity of song lyrics is going down the hill and now the audience has also started enjoying the average music and that’s all we have got at the moment. So, here is a list of worst Bollywood songs of the year 2020 that became popular despite below-average lyrics- Burjkhalifa This song is from Akshay Kumar’s film Laxmii and it is peppy and pointless at the same time. The song’s lyrics don’t make any sense but still gained a lot of popularity. This is another song that has been added to the long list of ever-growing Punjabi songs in Bollywood. Garmi The song is from the film Street Dancer 3D which stars Varun Dhawan, Nora Fatehi, and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead role. The song showcases Varun Dhawan and Nora Fatehi doing some great dance moves and this song’s hook step got extremely popular. Shayad The song is from the Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan starrer film Love Aaj Kal. People criticized most of the songs and still ended up listening to this one. This song had average lyrics but in people’s opinion better than the rest. Nehu Da Vyah This was released just before Neha Kakkar got married to Rohanpreet Singh and a lot of us ended up thinking that the whole wedding was just another PR strategy to make the song a hit. But, they really got married and the song also gained a lot of popularity. Beyonce Sharma JayegiIshan Khatter and Ananya Panday starrer Khaali Peeli made headlines even before the film’s release due to this song. The song’s cringe-worthy lyrics irked people to another level and the makers had to face a lot of backlash due to its ‘racist’ lyrics. View the full article
  17. Unless you’re really into tattoos, chances are that you might not know who Lokesh Verma is. For people who do know him and are familiar with his work, Verma is nothing short of a mastermind. A veteran tattoo artist, he is one of the very people in the world to hold a Guinness World Record in tattooing. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh Verma is also one of the topmost tattoo artists in India and is often named alongside internationally acclaimed tattoo artists, in publications all around the world. It is actually his clientele though, that should give you an idea, as to how prolific the man really is. He has inked the likes of Remo D’Souza, Swara Bhaskar, Ishant Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Tapsee Pannu etc, among a plethora of others. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh We spoke to him about how he got started, about tattooing as a career, and a few things to keep in mind when getting inked for the first time. Edited excerpts: In spite of several lucrative avenues, tattooing is still not seen as a viable career option. Why is that? To be a tattoo artist you need to be a good artist first. You need to have a creative mind and not everyone has that. It’s also difficult because, in the early stages, the amount of effort you put in doesn’t reap you equal amounts of fruit. It requires a strong will to see it through till the end because it’s a rocky road. And even if you have all this, you have to go against the grain of society to pursue it as a profession. So, it’s lucrative yes, but to make a name for yourself as a tattoo artist, you need to be willing to hustle and step out of the norm. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh How do we change that perception? Tattooing is considerably a new profession in India and we are not very experimental with new things. People want to see others fail or succeed before they step into something new. So, it is not easy to change anyone’s perception until they see some examples. If someone is really into it, they will be successful and come out on the other side with the flying colours and those early adopters will always have an advantage. A majority of the tattoo businesses are still underground. Why should places like that be avoided? The biggest reason is hygiene. The second reason is the quality of the tattoos. Basement shops tend to look dingy and to cut costs, might not use fresh needles or a fresh set up for different clients. It can cause long term medical complications. Getting a tattoo should be a good experience, which is often not the case when it comes to these places. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh You have worked on Shikhar Dhawan, Ishant Sharma and a number of cricketers; what was the experience like? Why do so many cricketers prefer getting inked? Cricketers like getting inked, it is as simple as that. Another reason is that they do a lot of physical activities and have a good physique. Tattoos always enhance the muscle structure and that is the reason most sportsmen like to adorn their body with tattoos. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh Tell us something about your journey, how did you start tattooing? I started back in 2003 when body art was not considered as fashionable as it is today. I was one of the very few people to start tattooing in India. I was working three jobs at a time and had started tattooing around the same time on weekends. I was always fascinated by tattoos and the art of tattooing, and so, brought a tattoo with some money I had saved up, and started practising on myself. When my friends got to know they started asking if I could do one of them, and slowly but surely the curiosity turned into a passion, and people started giving me money for my art. Any international celebrity that you would like to work with? Well, one of my all-time favourite singers, Eddie Vedder is someone I would like to work on. That would be crossing off something major from my bucket list. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh Who among the international tattoo artists inspires you the most, or would you like to collaborate with? Robert Hernandez as well as Dimitri Smohin would be a few I would like to collaborate with. When I was younger, I wanted to work with Paul Booth, and in 2018, I got that chance. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh What was the most outlandish request that you have received? After working in the industry for 17 years and getting the kind of requests that I have gotten, I don’t find anything outlandish. I have had all sorts of requests, including to ink someone’s face as well as one’s forehead. What should someone who is getting their first tattoo, keep in mind? Usually, we tell people who’re getting their first tattoo, to think hard about the design; it should mean something to them. Secondly, I ask them to do their research and also talk to the artist they choose and consult them about skincare and any doubt or concern that they may have. © Instagram/devilztattoozlokesh On what parts of the body would you suggest people not to get inked on? Avoid getting something on your fingers and your palms, because tattoos don’t stay on those particular parts for long. No matter what you do, they start fading quickly. View the full article
  18. When 2019 was coming to an end, and we were all making resolutions for the new year, no one had the slightest clue what 2020 had in store for us. All of our plans and resolutions came crashing as everything from theatres to international flights, were shut for a good chunk of 2020. In terms of entertainment, all we were left with was our laptops/TVs and yes, shows and movies on OTT platforms. We were lucky enough that we got some of the greatest characters and performances that made our life a little less miserable because work from home and working at home wasn’t really easy to deal with. Here are the 10 such strong characters (in no particular order) from web shows and movies that were impressive and kept us hooked to OTT platforms: 1. Harshad Mehta View this post on Instagram It was unbelievable how Pratik Gandhi pulled off a complicated character like that of Harshad Mehta. It was a controversial character but Pratik helped us see the emotional side of the man behind one of the biggest scams. 2. Hathoda Tyagi View this post on Instagram Hathoda Tyagi was surely one of the strongest characters that 2020 gave us. It’s not easy to show the deepest of your emotions without any dialogues but just emotions, but Abhishek Banerjee as Tyagi surely cracked it. 3. Munna Tripathi View this post on Instagram Munna Tripathi aka Divyenndu Sharma had already made us swoon in the first season but this time, he gave us an extra dose of entertainment and conquered it with his acting chops and some extra cuss words in Mirzapur 2. 4. Beena Tripathi View this post on Instagram Rasika Dugal as Beena was indeed a promising character and from the moment we saw her in the first season, we knew there was more to her. With the second season, we got to know her as someone who can manipulate power according to her own convenience and we wouldn't be wrong in calling her one of the strongest women characters of 2020. 5. Dhananjay Rajput View this post on Instagram It’s sad to see that Arshad Warsi who’s a brilliant actor is always reduced to limited screen space and smaller roles but as Dhananjay Rajput in Asur, he nailed it. He is seen investigating the murder of his own wife and that’s what makes him an extraordinary character. 6. Abhishek Tripathi View this post on Instagram As Abhishek, Jitendra Kumar was relatable and he showed the struggles of a millennial stuck in a government job, but dreams of working for an MNC. It was because of the simplicity and relatability, the character in Panchayat really stood out. 7. Kaleen Bhaiya And Sattu View this post on Instagram When it comes to Pankaj Tripathi, we expect something powerful and unique. We had already seen Kaleen Bhaiya and in the second season, Pankaj Tripathi made sure that he doesn’t lose the edge. While Kaleen Bhaiya was a rather serious character, Sattu from Ludo had a completely different flavour to it. They both were contrasting characters but left an indelible impression on us. 8. Inspector Jatil Yadav View this post on Instagram If you have missed Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Inspector Jatil Yadav in Raat Akeli Hai, you’re surely missing out on one of the craziest characters that had both wit and humour. 9. Kaashipur Wale Baba View this post on InstagramBobby Deol’s performance as Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala is gripping and people have appreciated his performance as he showed the dark side of self-acclaimed godmen in the country. In an interview with Indian Express, he said, “This was a very challenging role because now in my career, I am looking for roles that would push me to give my best. I am trying to portray characters that people would not imagine me playing on the screen.” 10. Aarya Sareen View this post on Instagram As Aarya, Sushmita Sen delivered a powerful performance, highlighting the struggles of a single mother turned gangster. She reminded the audience of her old charm and proved that she's still got it in her. There are a few more powerful performances like that of Kak Kay Menon in Special Ops. Which character did you love the most? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article

  20. Bollywood has been a male-dominated industry for years and continues to be so even today. This is evident from the fact that while we do have stories for male actors over 50 but sadly, the industry still falls short when it comes to presenting stories with female actors over a certain age as lead protagonists. Dia Mirza has spoken about the industry being ruled by men at length and has given valid arguments, in her interview with ETimes, to prove her stance on the very topic. 1. She addressed the bitter but unfortunate truth of Bollywood wherein not many roles are there for older actresses. She said, “I hope that this expression of female actors allows them to play the leading part even when they are older. But the unfortunate truth of the matter is that stories are not written for the female older characters as much as the male ones. It is even more unfortunate to see an older man playing younger parts." View this post on Instagram 2. She added how female actors over a certain age have to ask for work and she gave the example of Neena Gupta who despite being talented wasn’t offered any role and had to struggle for her due. Dia said, "An aberration to this would be an actress like Neena Gupta Ji. She literally has said it out loud more than once, 'I am an actor. I love my job. Please cast me.' Thankfully, some interesting filmmakers decided to cast her in lead parts that were defeating her age. But there are a lot of actresses in their middle ages who are struggling and aren’t being cast because no stories are being written for them." View this post on Instagram 3. Dia pointed out how the industry is comfortable with the fact that a 50-year old is sharing screen space with someone half his age but that’s not the case with older female actors. “The industry is male-dominated. Older men like to be cast opposite younger women to extend their own shelf life. It is bizarre that a 50 plus something actor is acting opposite a 19-year-old actress,” Dia stated. And she isn't wrong as actors like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan have shared the screen space with actresses half their age. View the full article

  22. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the biggest and the grandest movie franchise we've ever seen. So many movies, so many characters, so much action, it's what every superhero fan could ever ask for. And, since it's so huge - I mean if you look at the top highest-grossing movies of all time, it's very well dominated by Marvel - everyone is always trying to get in on the action and it also includes Bollywood, unfortunately. © Marvel Sometimes, Bollywood actors and directors decide to compare themselves to the Avengers and it's just super cringey for everyone. It gives so much second-hand embarrassment to people, that it's hard to take them seriously. So, here are a few instances where Bollywood had no business talking about Marvel but they did anyway: 1. Comedy Avengers Universe with Housefull 5The most recent atrocity first. We really have moved past the need for any more Housefull movies, but they keep making them. The franchise is problematic on its own, they really did not need to drag MCU into this. View this post on Instagram Basically, Housefull 5 was announced last week with Akshay Kumar sharing the news on his Instagram by posting a picture of the Housefull 4 cast along with a few new additions. The problem arose when a source reportedly said that the director Sajid Nadiadwala and Akshay Kumar are working towards a Comedy Avengers Universe. Yep. The source said, "It will be a huge ensemble cast since all the characters are coming back together for the 5th instalment. Sajid along with his team is working on the script and plan to shoot the movie in Imax format. The last films shot in Bollywood with such a format are Baahubali and Padmavaat. With this Sajid & Akshay are making their own Comedy Avenger Universe." 2020 is truly the year of tragic news. https://t.co/rOwYQtvYpf — Sapan Verma (@sapanv) December 10, 2020 Haven't we suffered enough this year? 2. Singham Cinematic UniverseRohit Shetty is obviously THE guy who makes cop movies in Bollywood and has made three box office hits and 100 crore club movies with Singham, Singham Returns, and Simmba. © Instagram He wants to tie all of the movies together in one Cinematic Universe and he has already started that process with Akshay Kumar's cameo in Simmba as a way to introduce his character Veer Sooryavanshi for his own upcoming movie. He said, "Whatever happens in America, Hollywood, happens here ten years down the line. That's been the theory always. When I was watching the Avengers series I got an idea that why don't we create a universe. Obviously, we don't have the kind of budget to make many superhero movies year after year. Then I thought to make a cop universe from Simmba onwards.” © Instagram He added, “I was a bit scared before the release of Simmba because this was happening for the first time in our country. I knew that youngsters and kids will know, because they have seen Avengers, but our mature audience hasn't seen that. I had doubts merging two worlds, but it worked big time." Well, good for him trying something new in the country, but doesn't stop us from cringing by bringing in Marvel. 3. Desi Tony Stark aka Chunkey Pandey View this post on Instagram Unfortunately, most of the times, whenever Ananya Pandey does or says, she always ends up getting trolled and when she compared her father Chunkey Pandey to Tony Stark, she wasn't doing herself any favours. Tony be like- pic.twitter.com/AsGoGS7VyV — Dev (@D3vBhakT) November 7, 2019 Well, this one wasn't as bad since Chunkey Pandey himself poked fun at that in Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Lives. 4. Aditya Seal upset with people who love Marvel but find SOTY 2 unrealistic © Dharma Productions Comparing Marvel to Student of the Year is the worst sin anyone can ever commit and SOTY 2 star Aditya Seal learned that the hard way. After the release of SOTY 2, Aditya talked about the criticism the movie received for showing an unrealistic school and college life. He said, "That is exactly the section of society who will watch 'Avengers' and love it and believe that superheroes exist, but they will give us flak for it." © Dharma Productions No one believes superheroes exist for real, but schools do. His statement made no sense, much like the entirety of Student of the Year 2. View the full article
