  1. Bollywood has a long history of portraying the hero as the ideal man who is macho, a fighter, a protector and a gentleman who isn’t gentle, but a man. Or as they say in the movies, asli mard! However, the badass dialogues about being a ‘real man’ end up becoming nothing but an endorsement of toxic masculinity. © Zee Studios These movie dialogues must have gotten a big cheer from the audience in the theatre but lately, we have been realising how problematic and false they are. They are actually guilty of fueling the wrong idea of manliness and further promoting social and gender stereotypes that real men are expected to abide by. © Balaji Motion Pictures Here are 7 such iconic dialogues from Bollywood movies that have gotten the idea of ‘being a man’, all wrong: 1. "Ek mard ka sir sirf teen auraton ke saamne jhukta hai. Ek apni ma ke saamne, ek durga maa ke saamne aur..." (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) © Dharma Productions This dialogue reeks of a male’s ego. A real mard bows his head in front of a woman only if she is his mother, a goddess or the woman he loves. Someone needs to tell Rahul that a real man respects everyone equally and doesn’t think his masculinity is compromised if he bows to greet a woman that isn’t one of those three. We don’t know if it was a tactic to propose, but Rani should’ve just run as far as she could have. 2. Yeh kaisi shirt pehni hai, aur ladkiyon wali perfume laga rakhi hai. Tumhara naam Jay Mehra nahi, Gay Mehra hona chiye tha” (Prem Aggan) © FK International Here comes the ultimate gender stereotype about how a man should dress to look like a well, man, and not gay. This woman tells this guy his name should be 'Gay Mehra' because he dresses like a woman. It’s sad how men who wear androgynous clothes are still ridiculed in the same way. 3. Mard ko dard nahi hota (Mard) © MKD Films This popular dialogue has promoted the wrong idea of masculinity for years now and is still used by people to show off their mardangi or assert the same notion on other men. However, it’s a social lie that cages men to feel anything, be it pain or emotions. 4. “Tu ladki ke peeche bhagega, ladki paison ke peeche bhagegi. Tu paison ke peeche bhagega, ladki tere peeche bhagegi" (Wanted) © Zee Studios According to Bhai's logic, the only thing any man ever needs to get the girl is dollar bills. If you have an impressive bank balance, women will run after you blindly, otherwise, you aren’t worthy of dating. No wonder, a man’s value in an arranged marriage is reduced to how much he’s earning. 5. “Ladki jab roti hai na bahut saare reasons hote hai ... par jab ladka rota hai ... reason ladki hi hoti hai” (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!) © Balaji Motion Pictures This line literally translates to ‘men don’t cry’. Or rather, men aren’t allowed to cry. Unless, of course, a girl broke his heart. Then, it’s allowed. It perpetuates the most harmful social stereotype that men don’t show their feelings and sobbing for little things is simply out of the question. 6. Usne teri khuddari ko lalkara hai, Kya kar raha hai yaar… mard ban mard (Dil Chahta Hai) © Excel Entertainment As much as we love this movie and find this scene funny, the dialogue is plain problematic. Aamir urges Saif to man up and confront his girlfriend for disconnecting his call in rage. It shows a man isn’t ‘a man’ if he puts up with his girlfriend’s tantrums, not a khuddar one, for sure. 7. Bande bike kyun chalate hai, macho dikhne ke liye … jean kyun pehente hai, macho dikhne ke liye. Bike ho ya ghar, handle hamesha apne haath mein. Warna bhabhi kabhi izzat nahi karegi (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi) © Yash Raj Films If society wasn’t enough to put pressure on men to shoulder all the responsibilities of a household, there are friends like Bobby who make sure the patriarchy is still alive and thriving. And, the thing about looking macho is where we go wrong and encourage toxic masculinity. View the full article
  2. When celebrities and actors get involved in a good photoshoot, the images that turn out are nothing short of magical. © MensXP Well, Kartik Aaryan was recently a part of such a photoshoot with celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani, and man, did he impress. © Instagram/kartikaaryan The photoshoot was for his upcoming calendar, which has become a hallmark for celebrities. Each year, Ratnani shoots 12 different celebrities in varying moods and setups to present one of the most sought-after calendars. For Kartik Aaryan, it seems the theme was to go for grunge or classic rock and roll, and man oh man did Kartik nail the brief! © Instagram/kartikaaryan With his long dishevelled hair and that vintage fur jacket, Kartik looked like a rockstar from the mid-1960s. Heck, it wouldn’t be farfetched to say that he sort of looked like Jim Morrison, the legendary vocalist for the band The Doors. The outfit, the accessories, Kartik’s hair and makeup - all looked to be inspired by the goth/grunge theme. Had Morrison been alive in the 1990s, this is how he would have styled himself for sure. View this post on Instagram The coolest thing about Kartik’s look in the photoshoot, however, has to be the fact that he got his nails painted for this. We have always maintained that it is high time that we normalise makeup for men, and Kartik has been one of the pioneers from Bollywood for that cause. © Instagram/kartikaaryan Also, do take a note of that hint of a tattoo that we get to see. We particularly like the fact that he actually went for the colour black to add to the monochromatic theme of the photoshoot. It’s kinda unfortunate that the photos are in black and white, but hey, they do look dope. For those interested in what Kartik’s wearing, the white vest that we see on him is from a German street fashion label, called Thom Krom, and the pendants are from Boris Bidjan Saberi, a German menswear designer. The jacket is a vintage piece. We have to say, that stylists Priyanka Shahani, & Kazim Delhiwala, also known as The Vainglorious, have done a phenomenally awesome job in styling Kartik for the shoot. All in all, Kartik looks spectacular in the shoot. We honestly can’t wait to see him pulling off even more of these statement ensembles when he starts promoting his films again. View the full article
  3. Lionel Messi might have finally gotten over his curse of not winning big titles for his country as he continues to be in a celebratory mood after bagging the Copa America title by defeating Neymar Jr. and Brazil. View this post on Instagram It appears that breaking that curse did more than just winning international titles for him. In fact, the 34-year old was finally able to enter the massive Indian market while getting a mega-endorsement, and that too in a business that remains the very core of the really desi people of the country. On Tuesday, a picture went viral on the Indian social media in which the portrait image of the Argentine Footballer could be seen on the packaging of a beedi bundle - which is a thin cigarette or mini-cigar filled with tobacco flake and commonly wrapped in a tendu, which originated in the Indian subcontinent. “Messi Biri” proudly reads the pack with the smiling picture of the five-time Golden Boot winner stamped on the cover in black, yellow, and white. Clearly, Arif Bidi Factory in Dhuliyan has got some big budgets to endorse their cigarette to have signed such a big world, a world influence, to promote their product. Leo’s Indian fans were overjoyed with him getting that big endorsement money and congratulated him on social media for finally being able to make his way to the Indian market: @WeAreMessi @TeamMessi congratulations on the endorsement 🤪🤪 https://t.co/wdSysTqpfA — NM (@meetnitinm) July 13, 2021Smoke and you will never miss a penalty in life. Special packing for England team. https://t.co/8wH0eK346m — Vins (@vinayverma99) July 13, 2021Secret behind Copa America success ️#MessiCampeon https://t.co/O4T4RS4CeU — Jyoti Prakash Sahoo MD (@KiddingKidDoc) July 13, 2021Messi Biri for his fans. https://t.co/AVcDuk4rkU — Anirban Roy (@anirban1970) July 13, 2021However, as it turns out, Messi’s popularity in the beedi-smoking community of India makes him only the second international football superstar to appear on the front of product packaging. Portuguese freak-athlete and Messi’s legacy rival, Cristiano Ronaldo has already had the honour before him. In fact, Ronaldo was so famous, the biri producers had to open a whole new factory in his name and didn’t hold back in bragging about it, either. Ronaldo too. https://t.co/EVkDX8RSmI pic.twitter.com/VIiLARn7vo — Rathin Barman (@rathinbarman) July 13, 2021 Brands like Forbes talk about these athletes’ multi-million dollar endorsements while estimating their net worth every year and placing them in a list, they better make sure to include the huge pile of money Messi and Ronaldo will be making from these sweet, sweet biri endorsement deals in India. Meanwhile, you know Neymar Jr is having a FOMO moment… Someone put his face on a biri packet too, please! View the full article
  4. The internet is a powerful tool and anything that goes up there has a way of staying there. Even if you delete the origin, the ghost of its traces remain there for people to dig up anytime. Having a name and a place in the eyes of the world also means that your words have a more powerful impact on the general public than an average Joe. Indian comedians and the controversies around them have been going on forever because a lot of ‘jokes’ made by them have not gone down well with people and authorities in this country. The latest person to be called out and be cancelled is comedian-actor Vir Das. He tweeted a joke on gender pronouns and deleted it soon after a lot of backlash came his way. © Twitter We are in the day and age where conversations around more than two genders are being highly encouraged and a lot of people are opening up to the idea of understanding genders and accepting each other with love. Keeping that issue in mind, his joke was taken in a bad taste and a lot of people tried explaining why it was hurtful for a non-binary person and was also transphobic in nature. I struggle everyday bc my family is transphobic and don't use right pronouns for me, but yea it's a joke — Khushveer (@khushveerss) July 5, 2021Vir Das is the perfect of example of no matter how woke of a comic you are, at the end of the day inevitably you will punch down to gender minorities when you run out of jokes to make. — puru (@oopspuruagain) July 5, 2021Doesn't matter whichever way you say it, either way you're unfunny https://t.co/C4ZVnro4jk pic.twitter.com/5c2B6Rruf7 — Anandita. (@devilsblessingx) July 5, 2021 Vir went on to delete the tweet and tried to neutralise the virtual atmosphere. However, while it was too late for people who were already offended, he offended more people who thought he couldn’t stand up to his own joke. It wasn't misunderstood. You cannot make a joke about a minority community where you don't belong.period. get a sense of humour please. — Sam wants to get to 300(CHECK PINNED/logged out) (@samthecursedkat) July 5, 2021When did it become fine to delete a joke cos a lot of people get upset. What happened to freedom of speech and tolerance. Are the wokes so insecure of their selves that they can’t take a joke? https://t.co/st7lphR1gz — NWO (@tweetslikeobito) July 6, 2021notice how instead of accepting his mistake he’s comfortable enough to crib about people getting offended — naisha (@naishhhhh) July 5, 2021 Looks like humour needs to be revisited and should be done in better taste for most people.

  5. Willow Smith recalls how her mother Jada Smith was subjected to so much hate during her early days
  6. Taapsee Pannu is someone who believes in sharing her opinions publicly and doesn’t shy away from speaking the truth out in the open. Her opinions have often landed her in controversies but that hasn’t stopped her from speaking her mind. In a recent interview with Siddharth Kanan, she said that she was dropped from a film at the last minute after she had blocked her dates. Though she didn't mention the name of the movie, Taapsee added that she had called out the makers earlier for unceremoniously replacing her. View this post on Instagram She said, “Mere saath hua hai. Bas taiyaar hoke nahi gayi thi, maine sirf dates di thi aur uske baad mujhe nikaal diya (It happened to me. I didn’t get ready for the shoot, I just gave my dates, and then I was thrown out).” She added that the makers did not communicate their decision to her. “I got to know through the media,” said Taapsee. When asked if the makers reached out to her after being called out by Taapsee, she said, "Obviously, they called me and met me, not to say kyun bol rahe ho (why are you talking about it) and all, just to apologize. After I had spoken out, then they met me to apologize for it. But still, they were hesitant to reveal the real reasons ki aisa kyun kiya (why they replaced me).” View this post on Instagram It was in 2019 when Taapsee had revealed that she had been dropped from the Pati, Patni Aur Woh remake at the last minute. In an interview with a daily, Pannu had stated how she was asked to block dates for the shooting and it was proof enough that she was on board for the movie. She had said, “Your time is money. You don't block a person's time and then say 'No, someone else is doing it'. People who did it had to somewhere take the responsibility or throw it back at me." When asked about the reason given to her by the makers, she said director Mudassar Aziz did not give her any justification. "He was just asked to take someone else. When I tried to confront the producers, I wasn't given a proper reason. As much as I have been trying to get some clarity on the matter, they've been putting off the conversation, which is very weird," she said. A few days after Taapsee called them out, the makers did come forward to say that they didn’t make any commitment to her. Here is hoping Taapsee and the makers have let bygones be bygones.

  7. As an introverted Bengali kid hailing from a remote corner in the North-East who was not even into sports, entertainment for me meant reading books. While Bengali children back in the day had no dearth of storybooks to fall back on during vacations and leisure time, for me it was a full time engagement, as I preferred living in a fantasy world, thanks to the constant crisis I didn't know how to address back then, but can now address as 'existential dread induced by anxiety'. via GIPHY As that nerdy kid who didn't fit in, I owe so much to the legend that Mr Satyajit Ray was, that it would be a folly to even try to put that into words. I had read and re-read everything he has ever written - Feluda, Professor Shonku, Tarinikhuro - before jumping on to the Harry Potter bandwagon that the world had just woken up to. However, he has written a lot more, and every character he created offered something special, that was enough to tie children and adults alike to the quick-turning pages of his super entertaining stories. Naturally, when the trailer of Netflix's Ray dropped, I had to immediately find out which stories were being retold, and revise them once before watching the series. I did it, and I honestly have mixed feelings. Before getting into details, however, I have to say it out loud to people who have read the original stories in Bengali: Please do not expect those stories to come to life, as you'll be colossally disappointed if you do that. via GIPHY Here are 3 things that Netflix's Ray got right, even from the perspective of an avid reader like me. 1. A super talented cast, consisting of some of the best actors in the industry, is one of the biggest assets of Ray. Be it Ali Fazal's frantic search for the truth, or Kay Kay Menon's quiet desperation, or the magical chemistry between Manoj Bajpayee and Gajraj Rao - every episode is a delight on that front, when viewed for the first time. View this post on Instagram 2. The slow burn of the background music in Ray is perfect for the stories. While parallels were drawn with the BGM of Marvel's Black Widow as soon as the trailer dropped, it perhaps should be taken as a compliment, as the background score has been on point, which only complements the intensity of the stories. 3. The camera work and the cinematography is absolutely stunning. Right from the melting effect of the train compartment into a stage in 'Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa' to the ominous darkness in every frame of 'Bahrupiya' starting right from the opening shot, Ray has been a visual delight. Now, let's look at what everyone is talking about - what did Ray mess up? 1. The first thing, without a shred of doubt, that Ray failed to capture is the simplistic, rustic relatability that was the biggest characteristic of Satyajit Ray's creations. While one may argue that it is a tough feat to pull off, the treatment for all the stories has been such that it fails to reflect the soul that Ray's stories were all about. Reading the stories once again took me back to my childhood, however, watching them on screen remotely didn't. 2. While creative liberty is something that should be accounted for, altering the stories to an extent that they barely can be called a Satyajit Ray creations at all, is something that all four stories are guilty of, especially Vasan Bala's 'Spotlight'. Barring the involvement of an actor in both the stories, there barely is any similarity between the two. While it is understood that the '126 year old gentleman' was replaced with a fraudulent religious figure, the essence of the original story was completely lost in the recreation. Even the clever attempt at throwing in multiple Satyajit Ray movie names along with a similar frame from the iconic 'Bhuter Raja' scene fell flat. 3. All the movies are guilty of being unnecessarily stretched out. All of the original stories, in their essence, are 'short' stories, and none of them needed as much time as 50 minutes to an hour. The stories, even with brilliant narration, could have been kept much tighter, and the editing could have been much crisper. All of them felt unnecessarily long, and there were scenes that felt like they were forcefully fit into the narrative, just to extend the screen time. In a nutshell, while it was unbelievably exciting to revisit some of my favourite stories from childhood, parts of this experience was just as awkward as the pronunciation of 'Didi' (like DD as in Door Darshan) in Spotlight.

  8. Travelling is a way of living for us and for our star gazing celebrities, it is a way of indulging in shenanigans, connecting with fans, and also making some money by visiting other countries for concerts or a movie shoot or just promotions. While Visa rejections and Visa delay issues are synonymous with simpleton people like us, there have been instances where a few countries have in fact banned a celebrity. Here are 7 celebrities who got banned for strange reasons: 1. Lady GagaOne of the most controversial and successful singers of our times was once banned in Indonesia after her personal style of dressing up and provocative lyrics angered Muslim groups. She was also called a ‘devil’s child’ who would spread Satanic teaching. View this post on Instagram 2. Katy PerryBack in 2017, the singer was supposed to perform in Shanghai but was unfortunately banned in China ‘indefinitely’ after she was spotted wearing a dress adorned with sunflowers at a concert in Taiwan in 2015. This gave rise to heavy criticism as in 2014, the sunflower was a symbol of protestors protesting against a trade agreement between China and Taiwan and hence the flower became synonymous with anti-China sentiments. View this post on Instagram 3. The BeatlesNow you’d wonder why a band full of talented musicians should be banned in a country. Well, back in 1966, on a tour in Phillipines, the band was banned by the first lady Imelda Marcos after the band declined an invitation to have breakfast at the Presidential Palace in Manila. In 1964 The Beatles were also banned in Israel due to the fear of influencing the youth in a ‘wrong way’. View this post on Instagram 4. AkonThe Lonely singer was banned from Sri Lanka after his music video which showed him dancing around the pool with a Buddha statue in the background and that caused massive uproar in the country. View this post on Instagram 5. Justin BieberThe Peaches singer offended the Chinese and got banned for indulging in ‘bad behaviour’ according to them. Another reason which was contemplated for the ban was that in 2014, he shared pictures of him at Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. The shrine is a mark of Japanese militarism in China. View this post on Instagram 6. BeyonceQueen Bee was actually banned in Malaysia because her shows were called immoral in nature and were prompted to promote ‘western sexy culture’. View this post on Instagram 7. Snoop DoggThe famous rapper was banned in Norway because back in 2012, he was found guilty of possessing drugs at a local airport. He was also fined heavily for the same. View this post on Instagram View the full article
  9. Former India opener Virender Sehwag, known for his explosive batting throughout his playing career, continues to hit the ball out of the park, albeit on a different playing field. The destructive opener always played his shots irrespective of the bowler he was facing or the format he was playing in and it created fear among his opponents. Continuing with the same trend, Sehwag continues to be as fearless as he was during his playing career and always speaks his mind regardless of the consequences that might come his way. © BCCL Despite a massive build-up, the World Test Championship final has proved to be a huge flop, so far, and with each passing day, the match is headed towards a draw and the world cricket’s governing body’s lack of foresightedness has come into question from a host of former players and cricket experts across the globe, with Sehwag being one of them. Like many Indians, Sehwag was expecting to see a tough contest between bat and ball with two top sides competing but the inclement weather in Southampton and poor batting performance by the Indian batsmen have killed that excitement, to an extent that nobody really cares about the outcome of the game anymore. © Reuters Sehwag took a dig at the ICC for messing things up with their poor planning and likened their performance to that of Team Indian batsmen who failed to capitalise on the solid start and were bowled out for 217 runs in the first innings, handing the advantage back to the Kiwis. Batsman ko bhi Timing nahi mili dhang ki, aur ICC ko bhi#WTCFinal — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 21, 2021 “Batsman ko bhi Timing nahi mili dhang ki, aur ICC ko bhi #WTCFinal,” read Sehwag’s tweet in Hindi, which roughly translates to “Neither batsman nor ICC got their timing right”. Sehwag wasn’t the only cricketer to have issues with ICC’s mismanagement, Kevin Pietersen, VVS Laxman, Shane Bond, Sanjay Bangar were all furious with the global governing body. © Instagram Indian Cricket Team Pietersen went ahead and suggested that ICC should never host a one-off important game like the WTC final in the United Kingdom, because the weather there is so unpredictable. Not a single ball was bowled on the first and the fourth day which was a complete washout, while the remaining two days saw only 141.1 overs due to rain and bad light, leaving us with only two more days in the game, including a reserve a day on June 23.

  10. Sources believe Ben Affleck has always been Jennifer Lopez?s ?the one that got away?
  11. Jennifer Lopez was reportedly 'crushed' when she ended her relationship with Ben Affleck in 2004
  12. Indian Idol has been one of the longest running and most watched singing reality shows since it first aired in 2004 (yeah, we were kids). The craze around it is still the same as before and if anything, it is bigger than ever with a huge following. People not only watch the show religiously but hype up their favourite contestants, share their opinions and if need be, don’t hold back from calling out any biases or unfair decisions on the show via social media. © Instagram That is how much the desi audience is involved with the show and its contestants. It is also evident by the number of views on the Indian Idol performances on YouTube. It’s astounding. Some of the best and outstanding performances of the current season have surpassed the 10 million views benchmark but it is all for a reason. © Instagram These performances are hair-raising to say the least. I mean, I might have watched a couple of performances about a dozen times while writing this, because they are so darn good. Not only did they get a round of applause and a standing ovation but also got the fans going back to them and listening to them on loop. © Instagram In case you are wondering which of the performances touched the hearts of the audience the most, here are seven most viewed videos on YouTube that the fans can’t seem to get enough of. 1. ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ by Arunita Kanjilal: 54 million Arunita sang this song originally sung by the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and got a standing ovation by all three judges in the end. This performance also got her a spot in the Top 14. 2. ‘Shayad’ by Pawandeep Rajan: 31 million The audition video of Pawandeep Rajan who is now one of the most loved singers on the show is also viewed over 30 million times. He performed a song from Love Aaj Kal on a piano and got a golden ticket. 3. ‘Teri Mitti’ by Pawandeep Rajan: 27 million Another of Pawandeep’s performances, which is among the top viewed, is a patriotic song from Akshay Kumar’s Kesari on the occasion of Republic Day. His soulful voice made everyone in the audience emotional and teary-eyed. 4. ‘Keh Doon Tumhe’ by Arunita Kanjilal and Pawandeep Rajan: 25 million When two of the best contestants on the show come together to perform, it is obvious that the video will blow up with likes and comments. Arunita and Pawandeep’s rendition of ‘Keh Doon Tumhe’ got even Neetu Kapoor grooving to the tunes. 5. ‘Mann Kyun Beheka’ by Sayali Kamble and Arunita Kanjilal: 19 million Sayali and Arunita picked this very melodious song which was sung by Lata ji and Asha Bhosle in Rekha’s Utsav. It’s safe to say that the young duo did complete justice to the song and the OG singers. 6. ‘Mere Kismat Mein Tu’ by Arunita Kanjilal: 19 million With Padmini Kohlapuri as the guest judge, Arunita sang a song from her movie Prem Rog that made the actress lip sync while enjoying her performance. 7. Medley by Pawandeep Rajan: 17 million Pawandeep sang a medley of ‘Ye Zameen Ga Rahi Hai’ and ‘Hoga Tumse Pyara Kaun’ in the same episode where Padmini Kolhapuri and Poonam Dillon were guest judges. His performance was so amazing that Himesh stood up and started dancing in between. © Instagram And, here’s a bonus. Not just contestants, but the set members of the show are just as talented. A crew member Yuvraj who has been working on the set since past few seasons finally showed his singing talent by performing ‘Khel Mandala’ and left the judges and everyone stunned. The video has got 19 million views and is one of the most watched performance videos on YouTube. He got a standing ovation by the judges and the audience couldn't help but sing praises for his marvelous performance in the comment section. View the full article

  14. There are thousands of people who aspire to make it big in Bollywood, however, sadly, not everyone gets to live their dream. If you are a believer in luck, there are some actors who didn't plan to get into Bollywood but were rather discovered by chance that later helped them showcase their talents in movies. Here's a list of 6 celebrities who were accidentally discovered at parties and coffee shops and then got into Bollywood: 1. Bipasha Basu © Instagram/Bipasha Basu In 1996, Arjun Rampal's former wife Mehr Jesia met Bipasha Basu at a hotel in Kolkata. After this brief meeting, Mehr suggested Bipasha try her hands on modelling. She gladly agreed to it, and that's how Bipasha was discovered. Bipasha then tried for movies and even took home her first best debut award for Ajnabee. 2. Siddhant Chaturvedi © Instagram/Siddhant Chaturvedi Siddhant Chaturvedi made us swoon over his character as MC Sher in Gully Boy. While his performance was highly appreciated, most of us didn't know that he was discovered by luck. As per reports, filmmaker Zoya Akhtar saw Siddant at a success party. She asked him if he would like to audition for a role in Gully Boy, and we know the rest of the story! Siddhant was also a part of the Inside Edge series. 3. Parineeti Chopra © Instagram/Parineeti Chopra For the unversed, Parineeti Chopra's academic background has been super impressive. She holds a triple honours degree in Business, Finance and Economics. It was director Maneesh Sharma who discovered her while she was working in PR at Yash Raj Films. That's how she landed her debut role in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. The movie was well-received by the audience, and then there was no stopping her after that. She also won the best debut award for the film. 4. Arjun Rampal © Instagram/Arjun Rampal At some point, most of us have crushed hard on Arjun Rampal. But, even his original plan wasn't acting. Ace designer Rohit Bahl noticed Arjun at a party and asked him to go for modelling as he had sharp features. He then ventured into Bollywood and later, also won the Filmfare award for best supporting actor for Rock-On. 5. Akshay Kumar © Instagram/Akshay Kumar The Khiladi of Bollywood had no plans of getting into acting. After his arrival to India from Bangkok, Akshay Kumar started teaching martial arts. He was discovered by a photographer, who asked Akshay to try modelling. Apparently, the actor missed his flight for his first-ever modelling assignment. He started submitting his portfolios at various studios, and that's how he received his first movie. 6.

  15. As with most movies in The Conjuring universe, The Devil Made Me Do It claims that it is based on a real-life incident. While this is true, it would be foolish to think that whatever we see in the film is historically accurate. © Warner Bros. Pictures In fact, the makers have taken a lot of liberty while making the movie. They have also omitted quite a lot of things that would have made the film a whole lot more interesting. Needless to say, it is actually interesting to find out, how accurate is The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. © Warner Bros. Pictures Here are 7 things that filmmakers Michael Chaves, James Wan & Peter Safran left out in the movie, about the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson. 1. The First Case In US History Where The Defense Was “Not Guilty Because Of Demonic Possession” © NBC This was the first case where the defence lawyer presented a plea of Not Guilty because of demonic possession. Arne Johnson’s lawyer was called Martin Minnella, who would later go on to become a best-selling author for a book he wrote on his role in the case. 2. The Mysterious Old Man © NBC The movie starts with the scene of David Glatzel’s exorcism. Prior to the exorcism, David had often seen and been attacked by a “demon” who had taken up the shape of an old man. During one of the many interviews that Arne gave to the press, during and after his trial, Arne had also spoken of this old man who would say him to do certain things. Lorraine Warren also spoke of seeing the apparition of an old man standing near David, when she met him for the first time. 3. A Possessed David Predicted Arne’s Manslaughter © Warner Bros. Pictures Gerald Brittle, who worked as an assistant to the Warrens and would often set up the cameras and recording devices, wrote a book about the exorcism of David Glatzel & Arne’s trial. As per his book, during the exorcism, a possessed David, had predicted that Arne would commit manslaughter. A show made by The Discovery Channel, A Haunting, which also covered the case, spoke of this prediction. However, the filmmakers completely skipped this. It was because of this recorded prediction that Lorraine Warren, had asked the local police to reach Bono’s kennel before the stabbing was reported. © Wiki Commons 4. Both Arne & Bono Were Drunk At The Time Of The Stabbing © Warner Bros. Pictures One thing that the film got completely wrong was the sequence of the stabbing. On the day of the murder, Bono had taken Arne’s girlfriend Debbie, her cousins, and Arne out for lunch, where the two men drank a lot, and got visibly intoxicated, as recorded in the court documents and the police report. The party then drove back to Bono’s kennel, and stayed there for some time, during which the two men were drinking again. 5. Before The Murder, Arne Got In A Heated Argument With His Landlord Bono © Warner Bros. Pictures Debbie’s youngest cousin, Mary, wanted to get some pizza when they were at Bono’s place. When they returned, Arne was apparently in a trance, not knowing where he was. Debbie suggested that she should drop the kids back home, and asked everyone to leave the room. At this point, an agitated and intoxicated Bono grabbed Mary. Arne re-entered the room and began shouting at Bono, although Mary and all her cousins testified that he was growling instead of shouting. At this point, Arne took out a pocket knife, flung himself on Bono and stabbed him repeatedly. Bono had been stabbed about 10-12 times, not 22 as the movie claims. Of this 10, 4-6 were around his vital organs, and it was these stabbings that killed him. 6. The Jury Was Not Allowed To Consider The Demonic Possession Defence © Wiki Commonsg 3 Missed The judge clearly from the start of the case that “Demonic Possession” was a defence that he would not entertain. As a result, Minnella had to come up with a defence that would imply that Arne had lost his self in the heat of the moment, and had gone temporarily insane. During the course of the trial, Minnella tried a number of tactics that would give the jury members, that Arne was in fact possessed by something other than himself. One of the biggest mistakes that Minnella made, however, was that they did not plead temporary insanity, and that cost them. 7. If Allowed To Consider The Demonic Possession Plea, Arne Would’ve Been Acquitted © Warner Bros. Pictures The prosecutor for the case pushed for the death penalty for Arne. However, Arne and Minnella were able to charm the jury. Even though he did not plead temporary insanity, Minnella was able to convince the jury that Arne was not himself on the day of the stabbing. Furthermore, reporters back then described Arne to be gentle, soft-spoken and docile. After the verdict, one of the jurors said in an interview that they wanted to acquit Arne, but simply couldn’t because they were specifically ordered to not consider Demonic Possession as a plea, and the fact that defence never plead temporary insanity. As a result, instead of first-degree murder, they found Arne guilty of manslaughter, a hugely reduced offence. The judge then gave Arne a jail term of 10-20 years, of which, Arne had to serve just 5, because of his good behaviour behind bars. The Bottom Line… Historical inaccuricasies notwithstanding, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a pretty good film to watch if you like the Conjuring franchise of films. It may not be the best horror film, especially given what we have nowadays, but it surely does the trick of keeping you glued to your seats. View the full article
  16. We have heard many times that creative inspiration can come from strangest of places but it seems like it stood true for the Netflix’s show Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives. Karan Johar has been friends with the four women for decades and came up with the idea of making a show with them on a flight apparently while flying to a condolence meeting in Delhi. © Twitter The reality show followed the lives of four star wives Seema Khan, Maheep Kapoor, Neelam Kothari and Bhavana Panday. The show was produced by Karan’s production house Dharma Production. © Instagram/Karan Johar Last night Janice Sequeira hosted a Clubhouse meeting called the Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives reunion where Karan revealed how he came up with the idea for the show. He said, “These four ladies are very special to me and have been for nearly two-and-a-half decades. But I want to tell you, the origin of this show happened on a flight. We took a flight to Delhi, we were actually going for a condolence meeting. One of our friends lost their father. We were on a flight to Delhi and that’s when I realised, and I have always known it, that these four women are completely crazy,” © Instagram/Karan Johar He added, “Because we were discussing our attires, much like Madhur Bhandarkar’s Page 3, whether Neelam had too much shine on her white kurta or whether Maheep was underdressed for a chautha. It was inappropriate and it was idiotic and it was so much fun that I said that the four of them have to be on a show. They made something even like a chautha sound like such a massive problem in what they were wearing to what was happening. And it was like they were talking nonsense. And then when we reached, we had to play-act that we were really sad, and on our flight back, we were talking rubbish,” © Instagram He also thought the four women were candid and naturals in front of the camera and needed to be on a show. “But I really thought that they need to be on camera because I thought that barring Neelam, who is a bona fide star and has faced the camera for 40 films, the other three were technically virgins to the camera and I think they were naturals.” © Instagram There have been talks of Season 2 doing the rounds. The first season of the show got mixed reviews from the audience while some settled on calling it a ‘guilty pleasure’. View the full article

  18. Almost 12 years after its release, Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots continues to be one of the best movies in Bollywood of all time because of its relevance to every generation. With a cast of brilliant actors like Aamir Khan (Rancho), R Madhavan (Farhan), Sharman Joshi (Raju), Kareena Kapoor (Pia), Boman Irani (Professor Viru), and Omi Vaidya (Chatur), 3 Idiots took us through the journey of three students at an Indian engineering college. It’s interesting to see how everyone finally breaks the shell and chooses to follow their own choice of careers. In an interview, Sharman Joshi recently revealed that they all got drunk for real, for a scene for the film. And it was Aamir’s idea. Speaking to The Times of India, Sharman Joshi remembered the scene in which Raju (Sharman), Rancho (Aamir), and Farhan (Madhavan) abuse Virus sitting on the stairs. Here’s the scene in question: Sharman said, “I especially remember the one scene where Aamir, Maddy, and I were drunk and cursing Boman Irani’s character in the film. Aamir suggested that we drink and perform. Aamir and I were on time to start drinking but Maddy had some work and reached a little late. Aamir told him to catch up with us. Madhavan is not much of a drinker but in order to catch up with us, he had a few drinks too fast." He added, "By the time we were ready for the scene, we were a little too high, but Maddy was even more so. He performed the scene brilliantly! Not often do you get to see Madhavan like that because he rarely gets drunk (laughs). That scene is a really memorable one for us. After the release of the film, Rajkumar Hirani sir, Maddy, and I went on a trip to Aruba and it was absolutely fantastic. Maddy is a very lovable guy; he is very pleasant with everyone. On that trip, we shared a lot of things." The anecdote has hit us right in the feels and we might watch the movie again today. What about you? View the full article
  19. Janhvi Kapoor spoke about the late Bollywood icon Sridevi and the advice she received from her
  20. It was during the shoot of the Bollywood film Hastey Hastey (2008) where Karan Mehra first met Nisha Rawal. It was love at first sight for Karan but it took a while for Nisha to go ahead and fall in love with him. Things were rosy for the two initially but they have hit rock bottom now as their marriage is falling apart. Their fight is getting murkier with each passing day and it has come with a cascade of allegations. Nisha held a press conference on Tuesday evening to share her side of things amid reports of domestic violence. Here's everything she has revealed. 1. Troubled MarriageNisha, in her press conference, opened up on the whole incident and said that it has been 14 years of their relationship but no one came to know about anything. She said that she confronted Karan with many things which then turned into an ugly showdown as he got upset and banged her head. He also didn’t realize the severity of it until she started bleeding. Nisha Rawal said, "It is extremely embarrassing to meet you all like this since we have always met on the red carpet events. I am here only because of Kavish (their son). We have been together for 14 years. Many things happened in these years but no one came to know about anything." View this post on Instagram Karan has completely denied the allegations here, saying that she herself banged her head and framed him. 2. Karan’s Extramarital AffairNisha also revealed that she got to know about his extramarital affair and unlike many others, she wanted to sit and talk to him. She said, "Karan has been having an affair with another girl, which I didn't know about. When I came to know about it, he accepted that he has another girl in his life. I asked if he has physical relation if it's a serious affair or an emotional one. He said 'I love that girl. I have been having physical affair with her'.” She also said that the girl is from Delhi and it all started when Karan started shooting in Chandigarh. She added, “I told him to sit down and talk. Then the next day I went to my parents-in-law. I told them everything. They asked us to work on it. I told them if Karan says sorry and wants to work on the relationship, then I will try. But after all this, he didn't make any effort while I tried a lot.” Karan denied these allegations too and called them completely baseless. “All these allegations are bound to come up and I will be linked with many people. These stories are baseless. I haven’t cheated on her and I am not having an extramarital affair," he said. 3. Domestic AbuseShe also added that she wanted to keep his image intact as she is an actor and understands how important it is to be in the public's good books. She said, “Seeing Karan's behaviour over the years, in the last 14 years, this is not new. I tried to keep his image intact because we are actors and doing all this can affect our careers. We also have a child. Every time Karan used to apologize, I used to say okay. I actually wanted to believe him. But then I had to speak up as domestic abuse is not okay.” View this post on Instagram 4. Bipolar DisorderKaran, in many interviews, has spoken about Nisha’s bipolar disorder. Karan had said, “Nisha has mood swings and a violent anger streak. She would throw stuff and hit herself and others. Five-six years ago, she was diagnosed as bipolar. People, including our friends and relatives, have seen her behaviour in public and I couldn’t take it anymore.” In the press conference, she accepted the fact that she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder but that doesn’t mean she is a ‘psycho’. View this post on Instagram "Bipolarity is a mood disorder which happens due to extreme trauma and it’s genetic sometimes. I was diagnosed with bipolarity and I am not going to lie about it as I am not ashamed about it. But I am not a psycho, it is a mood disorder. And you all know how balanced I am. I create content for the web, make videos, and write about things. I don’t have to prove anything," she said. 5. Her Miscarriage And Karan’s Controlling NatureShe revealed that she had a miscarriage in 2014 and Karan wasn’t there to support her. She said, “In September 2014, I was 5 months pregnant and I lost my child. Recently, I made a Mom’s group where women who lost their children can speak up about it as when I lost my child I did not have anyone to talk to about the loss. I wanted to go to my parents and talk to them because it was a very big trauma for me. In the middle of it my husband was beating me up, abusing me, he was unavailable, totally detached and that’s when I went to a therapist. In fact, Karan had stopped me from going to a therapist, he didn’t let me go to a gym, he was very controlling in everything.” View this post on Instagram What's your take on the entire incident?
