  1. From being portrayed as perennial macho men with a penchant for saving damsels to showing their vulnerable side and being open to emotions, Bollywood's portrayal of male characters has sure come a long way. Back in the early 80s, men were shown as larger-than-life characters with the focus mostly on this burning rage that they carried within them all the time. The concepts of 'ladke rote nahi hai' and 'mard ko dard nahi hota' were pretty much a constant back in the day for Indian cinema but now, things have changed drastically as male characters are challenging stereotypes. Here are 7 brilliant male characters that we have seen in Bollywood movies, who opened the dialogue around the notion that men are not just about being 'strong', 'tough', 'angry' and 'manly': 1. Shahid Kapoor As Aditya Kashyap - Jab We Met © T-Series Aditya Kashyap in Jab We Met is a very beautifully written character and anyone who has seen the movie can attest to that. Here we have a man who wants to create a safe environment for a woman, a complete stranger, who's travelling with him. He is humble, poised, and someone who thinks about others before himself. He makes sure that Geet is comfortable in the journey with him, showing the audience that men can be trusted and are not just mere stalkers, whose goal is to simply chase down the woman, irrespective of her wishes. "Haan, main tujhe bahut pasand karta hoon par woh mera problem hai. Tujhe tension lene ki koi zaroorat nahin. (Yes, I love you but thatâs my problem. You don't have to worry about it)," this dialogue by him just goes on to show the depths of his personality. 2. Vikrant Massey As Amol - Chhapaak © FoxStarHindi When you fall for someone, one of the first things to strike is looks and beauty. But, Amol in Chhapaak is here to show you a different side of men who believe that love is not just about falling for looks alone and that the person on the inside also matters. Amol falls for Malti's courage, ethics, and how she deals with all her sorrows. That in itself is what makes her beautiful to him, even though her face was left disfigured from the acid attack. 3. Shah Rukh Khan As Kabir Khan - Chak De! India © YRF Kabir Khan is one of the very few male characters, who is a feminist, that we have seen on the big screen. He coaches a team of female national hockey players and does not go easy on them just because they are women, as it should be. Khan sees them as hockey players, not as women, making it clear right from the start that gender does not matter to him when it comes to doing his job. However, he is also someone who does not hold back from reminding the girls from time to time how strong they are as women. True feminism. 4. Manav Kaul As Ashok Dube- Tumhari Sullu © T-Series Ashok Dube, another well-crafted character, shows how a man, in a household, is capable of making drastic changes to his life and give the reins over to his better half, if need be. His wife takes on a job of being an RJ at night who hosts a live show and talks to people, especially men, who get addicted to her voice. She slowly starts earning way more than Ashok and this, somehow, affects him. But he does not let himself be consumed by the negative feelings and becomes supportive of his wife and her venture. Well, this is a beautiful transition of roles that we should celebrate. 5. Ayushmann Khurrana As Kartik Singh - Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan © T-Series A lot has already been talked about this particular project on how it challenged the stereotypes surrounding the LGBTQ community in our country. Kartik is a character who is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the portrayal of gay men in Bollywood. He shows how being gay does not necessarily make one 'girly' or 'feminine', something a lot of people still think to this day, and that they are regular people who just want what other couples want- acceptance and acknowledgement. 6. Arjun Kapoor As Kabir Kamlesh Bansal - Ki And Ka © Eros Now When the movie released in 2016, people couldn't stop raving about Arjun's progressive character, a man who aspires to be a house husband. For years, we have seen movies with women taking command of the kitchen and running the house, but here we have Kabir who has no qualms in doing the household chores and letting his wife earn. 7. Amitabh Bachchan As Bhashkor Banerjee - Piku © Sony Entertainment Pictures Our dads may sure be liberal but we cannot, in no way, indulge in a conversation about our virginity with them. And then there is Bhashkor, who is changing that notion as he doesn't shy away in accepting, publically, that his daughter Piku is sexually active and he has no issues with that. These characters make us want to celebrate men in a very different way and we are glad that Bollywood is evolving towards a progressive direction through these brilliant characters.

  2. The popular belief is that one cannot be on good terms with their step or half brothers and sisters. However, many of us will agree to have come across numerous people who completely adore their half-siblings and share a pretty close bond with them. However, in an industry like Bollywood where every celebrity is always under scrutiny, it comes as refreshing news when we witness Bollywood actors bonding with their half brothers or sisters and changing the popular narrative that half-siblings cannot be family in the true sense of the world. © Twitter HDpopcorns From spending time with each other to genuinely hyping up one another and standing strong by their side, many Bollywood half-siblings have shown us the way forward when it comes to being great friends with their half-brothers and sisters. Here are 5 Bollywood actors who share a close bond with their half-brothers and sisters and showed us that blood-ties are more than social labels: 1. Arjun Kapoor - Janhvi & Khushi Kapoor © Star World Arjun, Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi really make for a great family picture every time the siblings pose together. However, this change truly came after Srideviâs passing which really helped the half-siblings connect on a personal level. Since then, Janhvi has often opened up about Arjun and Anshula and how much she appreciates their presence in her life. 2. Sara Ali Khan - Taimur Ali Khan © Facebook saraalikhanlove Sara and Taimurâs adorable pictures never fail to make people break into a smile. Little Tim seems very comfortable with his half-sister Sara and half-brother Ibrahim Ali Khan, who celebrate many festivals together apart from also chilling together as a family every now and then. While Sara calls Taimur a âbundle of happinessâ to be around, Taimur also has a special nickname for his dear sister - âGolâ. 3. Alia Bhatt - Pooja Bhatt © Twitter aliaasangels Despite a huge difference in their age, Alia and Pooja share a very close friendship and have never shied away from openly expressing their affection for each other. From praising younger sister Alia to sharing childhood pictures together and standing up for one another, Alia and Pooja Bhatt definitely prove that blood is thicker than water. 4. Shahid Kapoor - Ishaan Khatter © Twitter Pinkvilla-celebsandcinema Perhaps one of the most notable pairs on the list simply because of the strong bond they share with each other. On multiple occasions, Shahid has proved how much he adores and loves his half-brother Ishaan. Ishaan too completely dotes on his elder brother and often hangs out with him and his family. 5. Prateik Babbar - Juhi & Aarya Babbar © BCCL For the longest time, Prateik was rather shy about his personal life. However, recent years have brought a change in him and given us a glimpse of his personal ties beyond his immediate family. Ever since he made peace with his father and his family, Prateik also opened his heart to his half-sister Juhi and half-brother Aarya. From celebrating festivals together, to being Prateikâs biggest cheerleaders, the siblings publicly shower younger brother Prateik with lots of love. View the full article
  3. Many of us are missing travelling right now and some of us even had big plans to travel this year but the pandemic has restricted us to do so. However, one Taiwanese airport has come up with a unique solution for people who are missing travelling. So, at Taipeiâs downtown Songshan airport, people can get a fake travel itinerary, and people can check-in and board the aircraft. However, the aircraft will never leave. © Reuters You are going to travel along with a total of 60 people to nowhere and thatâs the sad reality. Around 7000 people participated to take part and winners were chosen randomly. Also, it seems like such fake flight experiences will increase in the near future. After all, according to WHO, the pandemic is not even close to getting over. Hsiao Chun-wei, 38, said, "I really want to leave the country, but because of the epidemic lots of flights can't fly.â © Reuters According to the people who experienced it expressed that the whole process was very real. The passengers even got boarding passes and proceeded through security and immigration as we used to while travelling. And then boarded an Airbus A330 of China Airlines, where the people also got a chance to chat with the flight attendants. A 48-year woman said, "I hope the epidemic ends soon so we can really fly away.â Not only this, the airport is using the occasion to show off renovations and is also utilizing this chance to acquaint people with the Coronavirus prevention steps. © Reuters Due to COVID-19, fewer flights are flying and the numbers have plummeted by 64% in the first half of 2020. However, domestic travel is reportedly on a rise. In India, recently the government has lifted travel restrictions from everyoneâs beach destination Goa and all you need to do is follow a few rules to keep yourself safe amid the pandemic.

  4. India has a long and rich tradition of poems and lyrics. It wonât be farfetched to say that we have produced some of the best lyricists ever to have walked the earth. Be it Javed Akhtar, or Gulzar sa'ab, or even someone like Sahir Ludhianvi, we have had so many great lyricists, with such a wide body of work, that it is actually impossible to keep a track of their greatness. © BCCL Still, why not make an attempt at it? We have jotted down the names of a few lyricists who have produced an amazing body of work over the years, and whoâre still going at it. As a result, we cannot factor in the greats like Anand Bakshi, or Majrooh Sultanpuri. © Filmfare Now, we have to address the fact, that there have been blotches every now and then, especially with the current crop of âartistsâ who think that they have revolutionized Indian music with their music and cringe-worthy lyrics. © Twitter/its_badshah But by and large, we have a rich and colourful history. Here are a few lyricists that have contributed immensely to that history. Javed Akhtar (About 1200 Songs) © BCCL Javed Akhtar has been writing since the 70s, an era where scriptwriters werenât given credit in a film, so naturally, lyricists were far down the pecking order. Only when a really notable poet would write lyrics for a song, would it get publicised. In a career spanning almost 5 decades, Javed Akhtar has given us some seriously amazing lyrics to some of the most iconic songs. We reckon that he has probably given us more than 1500, or perhaps even 1800 songs. However, because giving credit to struggling writers wasnât even a consideration back in the 70s, we cannot say for sure. Shitala Pandey aka Sameer Anjaan(Over 4000 Songs) © Wiki Commons If you grew up during the 90s and could read, anytime you picked a cassette case, and read the name of the lyricist of any given sing, you would always find the line âLyrics By Sameer.â So much so, that there was a joke which said that Sameerâs first name was âLyrics By.â Lame jokes aside, Sameer Anjaan has the most credits as a lyricist to his name. As of 2015, he has written songs for over 650 Bollywood films, and a total of 3500 songs. As of 2019, he has over 4000 songs to his credit. Gulzar (Over 1000 Songs) © BCCL Gulzar saâab has a way with words that is simply mesmerising. You really cannot explain effect his lyrics have, they are something that you just have to experience. He has been writing lyrics since 1961. That is a career spanning nearly 60 years. A part of the Progressive Writers Association, Gulzar saâab has always chosen quality over quantity, and weâre really glad for that. Till date, he has written songs for well over 200 films Prasoon Joshi (Circa 400 Songs) © Wiki Commons The man who has given us some of the most iconic advertisements in India, and who now heads the CBFC, Prasoon Joshi had a rather short career as a proper lyricist. We genuinely wish that after his stint as the chairperson for CBFC, he starts writing lyrics again. In spite of being immensely popular, and very much in demand, Prasoon Joshi was very selective with his projects. In total, he has written songs for about 50 films in total. Irshad Kamil (Over 450 Songs) © IMDb Next, we have Irshad Kamil. Irshad is a poet who has been writing lyrics since 2004. Of the current lot of lyricists, he is one of the most in-demand lyricists. He started his Bollywood career with Sudhir Mishraâs Chameli so that should tell you enough, just how capable he has been. Amitabh Bhattacharya (Over 300 Songs) © IMDb And finally, we have Amitabh Bhattacharya, one of the most promising lyricists that we have today. Although he wanted to be known mainly as a singer, it was his lyrics that actually made the mark for him. He remains one of the most celebrated lyricists ever and has also won the prestigious National Film Awards for his work. Because he started out in 2008 and has mostly worked with a very close circle, the number of songs he has written is as high. However, weâre pretty sure that weâre just seeing him getting started.

  5. We have said it before, and we will say it again - although a film may initially draw audiences because of the star cast, and the names of on-screen talents, it is the director who ensures that the film is made so well that audiences keep on coming and buying tickets to watch the film. It is the director who ensures that a film, crosses the 200 or 300 Crore mark. © Viral Bhayani There are a few director siblings who are responsible for some of the most iconic films we have in Bollywood today. Now, when we say iconic, it is not necessarily in a good way. There are a few filmmakers, who have given us movies, that are âiconicallyâ bad, as in we donât really know how on earth were they approved. But they are few and far between. © Eros International The more pertinent point here is that there are a few great director sibling pairs, who have actually given us a few great films. This begs the question, is there a gene for storytelling that runs in their families? We think that probably, there is. 1. Abbas & Mustan Burmawalla © Viral Bhayani Of course, we have to start with the most iconic pair of sibling directors, Abbas & Mustan. Now, we agree that their films arenât as pathbreaking or critically acclaimed. However, if you look at their filmography, youâll see that the duo has done a lot for Indian cinema in terms of storytelling, and action films as a genre. Some of their films include titles like the Race trilogy, Khiladi, and Baazigar among a plethora of others. 2. Zoya & Farhan Akhtar © Reddit/r/bollywooddirectors Do we really need to spell out why this particular pair of sibling directors are on this list? Zoyaâs filmography does not need any words, it is just fantastic. Clearly, she is one of the most talented directors we have today. As for Farhan, he single-handedly changed the course of Bollywood movies with Dil Chahta Hai & Lakshya. We genuinely wish we could see Farhan in the directorâs chair, more often. 3. Anurag & Abhinav Kashyap © Reddit/r/bollywooddirectors Keeping aside oneâs political inclinations, there is really point in arguing over the fact that at one point in time, Anurag Kashyap was the face of parallel cinema in India. Anurag really pushed the envelope when it comes to Indian Cinema, and the kind of stories that we could tell on celluloid. Gangs Of Wasseypur, Paanch, Black Friday, Gulaal, Raman Raghav 2.0 - all these are films that practically lived on our tongues. Abhinav Kashyap on the other hand, reimagined the âCop Filmâ as a genre, with Dabanng. Sadly though, his next and final directorial venture, Besharam was a disaster. However, if we see the scripts that he has written since then, weâre pretty sure that he will do well when he finally gets to sit in the directorâs chair. 4. Farah Khan Kunder & Sajid Khan © Reddit/r/bollywooddirectors Okay, this is a bit of a conundrum. Farah Khan as a director has sort of perfected the formula of a masala family entertainer, which, in spite of being a little over the top, were genuinely liked by the audience. She is iconic in that sense. Sajid Khan, on the other hand, has mastered how to make a senseless comedy that you cannot watch with any intelligence. We seriously donât know how or why is this the case, but Sajid Khan, at the end of the day, is also a âdirector,â in an iconic way - how not to be one. 5. Sanjay Leela Bhansali - Bela Bhansali Sehgal © Viral Bhayani Bet you didnât see this coming, did you? Sanjay Leela Bhansali is well, Sanjay Leela Bhansali - a filmmaker who has shown how to make one magnum opus after the other. Whether you like his films or not, you cannot deny that he knows how to set up a scene, and how to make some of the most visually stunning films that just makes us gasp. His sister, Bela Sehgal, is also a director. Her directorial debut, Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi was actually a great rom-com film, which had a poignant story. Unfortunately, it did not do well at the box office, and that was that. 6. Rohit & Hriday Shetty © IANS/Viral Bhayani Yup, Bollywoodâs most commercially successful director, has a sibling whoâs also a director. While Rohit Shetty is known for films that are full-on masala entertainers that somehow always make well over 100-150 Crores. Hridayâs filmography is rather different. They arenât exactly parallel cinema, and neither are they mainstream films - theyâre a hybrid of some sort. His filmography has titles like Chaalis Chauraasi, starring Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni, Kay Kay Menon and Ravi Kishan, Pyaar Mein Twist starring Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia, among a few others. 7. Yash Raj Chopra & Baldev Raj Chopra © Reddit/r/bollywooddirectors If there is one pair of sibling directors who have shaped Indian Cinema as we know it today, it has to be Yash Raj Chopra & Baldev Raj Chopra, or BR Chopra as he is popularly known. Between the two of them, the films they have directed can quintessentially be defined as Indian cinema. If you look at their respective filmographies, youâll see names that have not only shaped Bollywood, but also how they have defined how we consume visual entertainment. 8. Imtiaz, Sajid, & Arif Ali © Viral Bhayani There was a time when Imtiaz Ali was considered the director to work with. He still is one of the best directors of the current crop. There is just something about his way of telling a story that just resonates with everyone. His brothers, Arif Ali & Sajid Ali have also been credited as directors. Arif is also an accomplished screenwriter and has worked on a number of notable projects. View the full article
  6. The Bollywood industry, as we know, is made of dreams and for many, their dreams become reality too. And if magic doesnât happen here, where else would it happen? For some, it was love at first sight, and for others, it was a long-time friendship that blossomed into marriage. But, thereâs one thing common between these eternal Bollywood love stories - they first met on sets of the films in which they worked together. The film set played cupid for these lovebirds who are now living the life of âhappily ever afterâ. Their epic romance reflects through their beautiful lives, the glimpses of which they keep sharing on social media from time to time. Here, let us take you through the love-filled journey of the famous Bollywood stars who married their co-stars as they fell in love with each other while working together: 1. Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh © SocialNewsXYZ / Twitter Actors Ritiesh and Genelia first met for the test shoot of their Bollywood debut, Tujhe Meri Kasam. Initially, Genelia didnât speak to Riteish much as she expected him to be a spoilt brat because of him being the son of the then chief minister of Maharashtra. But, as she spent time with him, she found Riteish to be a totally loving and caring person. Soon, the two fell in love and tied the knot on February 3, 2012. The adorable couple is blessed with two baby boys. 2. Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna © ThePrintIndia / Twitter AksTwink, as they are lovingly called, tied the knot in 2001. Twinkle Khanna may have found her career away from Bollywood, but she found her soulmate on the film's set. Akshay and Twinkle worked together in two films- International Khiladi and Zulmi. Although both these films bombed at the box office, it played cupid for these two. The man with a colourful past, Akshay, finally found true love in Twinkle, and the two are now happily married for 19 years. They are now doting parents to son, Aarav and daughter, Nitara. 3. Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan © Reliance Entertainment When Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai met on the sets of Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke and Kuch Naa Kaho, they bonded well. In fact, the two had separate love interests at that time. It was in 2006, when they were out of their respective relationships and were working together in three hit films, Umrao Jaan, Guru and Dhoom 2. As they got to spend a lot of time together, both of them developed feelings towards each other. Finally, the power couple of Bollywood tied the knot in 2007. They are blessed with a daughter, Aaradhya. 4. Kajol and Ajay Devgn © ajaydevgn/ Twitter The world knows about Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan's irreplaceable on-screen chemistry, but Kajol's off-screen chemistry with her husband, Ajay Devgn is truly something to look upto. They both met on the sets of Hulchul in 1995, and dated for almost four years. Their epic romance led to marriage in 1999. The couple is blessed with two kids, daughter Nysa and son Yug. 5. Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu © BCCL,@UpBollywood/Twitter They have had a successful live-in relationship and in fact, their love story was an outcome of the two working together on the same projects. Kunal and Soha worked together in the movies, Dhoondhte Reh Jaoge and 99, in 2009. As they spent time with each other, the two got attracted to each other in no time. The couple has an adorable two-year-old daughter, Inaaya Naumi Khemu. 6. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan © Sonam_____Twitter Being touted as Bollywood's hottest couple, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan aka Saifeena fell in love with each other on the sets of Tashan. It happened in 2007, when the relationship of Kareena and Shahid Kapoor was almost over. They dated for around five years, and finally had a simple registered marriage in October 2012. Now, the two of them are parents to a baby boy, Taimur Ali Khan, who is already more famous than his parents. 7. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan © BCCL When Amitabh Bachchan was finding his feet in the industry, Jaya Bachchan (then Bhaduri) was already a superstar. Film Zanjeer played cupid in their lives. The two had decided to go to London if Zanjeer became a hit. As the movie turned out to be a big success at the box office, the two planned for the trip. However, Big Bâs father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, did not approve of this trip unless they were married. So, the âalready in loveâ couple tied the knot in a hurry and left for London the same day. 8. Dharmendra and Hema Malini © dreamgirlhema Their love story is as good as a hit masala Bollywood flick. They fell in love with each other on the sets of Tum Haseen Main Jawan. But, the He-man of Bollywood was already married then and had two sons out of his first wedding. As his first wife, Prakash Kaur, denied to give him a divorce, Dharmendra converted to Islam and tied the knot with the âdream girlâ of Bollywood, on August 21, 1979. 9. Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor © PTI This charming couple of Bollywood met each other for the first time on the sets of Zehrila Insaan. However, it was not love at first sight for these two. Rather, the two eventually fell in love as they spent time together. At that time, Neetu Singh was just 14 and had started her career in the industry. On the other hand, Rishi Kapoor was a well-established actor by then. Because of her tender age, the couple had to face some opposition from Neetuâs mother. But, the two passed every test successfully and soon got married. However, unfortunately actor Rishi Kapoor lost the battle with cancer and left for heavenly abode on April 30, this year. 10. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone © deepikapadukone/Twitter (Deepika Ranveer Twitter) Ranveer and Deepika's romance flourished during the filming of Goliyon Ke Rasleela Ram Leela in 2013. Their magnetic chemistry in the film sent gossip mills into overdrive. Their epic love story is no less than a fairytale itself! After being in a committed relationship for six years, they tied the knot in the picturesque location of Lake Como in Italy. It was when Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were shooting for the song Ang Laga De from the movie that they fell for each other. View the full article
  7. While talking about Bollywood A-listers, the only thing that comes to mind is that these are some of the most successful, superhit-producing actors of the Hindi film industry. However, the reality couldnât be more different. While itâs true that they have a lot of blockbusters to their name, many Bollywood A-listers also have some of the worst performing films to their credit as well. Here are 8 such top Bollywood actors who have also given some of the most negatively reviewed movies in Bollywood. Based on IMDB ratings of 3.5 and below, here are 8 A-listers who made it to the list. 1. Akshay Kumar © UTV Motion Pictures Akshay Kumar, who is hailed as the âKhiladiâ of Bollywood also happens to be one of the leading Bollywood actors with one of the worst Bollywood films to his credit. Akshayâs Tees Maar Khan starring Katrina Kaif made the audience cry tears of blood given how shitty the plot and the concept was. 2. Hrithik Roshan © Emkay Films After Hrithikâs debut Kaho Na Pyaar Hai did wonders at the box office, Vikram Bhatt must have thought the star jodi would recreate the charm with Aap Mujhe Ache Lagne Lage. However, he was up for some major disappointment because the film tanked and how! 3. Ajay Devgn © Eros International Who would have imagined Ajay Devgn would top the list with the MOST number of negatively reviewed Bollywood movies? Well, as the facts have it, three of Ajayâs films, namely Himmatwala, Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag and Rascals happen to be some of the biggest flops of Ajayâs career. 4. Salman Khan © Salman Khan Films Although we totally agree that Race 3 deserves to grace this list for being the most ridiculous and sham of a film, it turns out that isnât the biggest flop of Salmanâs career. As per the ratings, Me & Mrs Khanna, starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, is one of Salmanâs worst performing films ever. 5. Saif Ali Khan © Fox Star Studios 2013 hadnât really been a very bad year for Saif on the professional front. With four movie releases that year, including Race 2, we wonder why on earth he decided to settle for Humshakals. Experimenting is fine, but the combo of crass humour and slapstick comedy in this stupid film surely did no good to him. 6. Priyanka Chopra © Baweja Movies There is no forgetting this mega failure of a film titled Love Story 2050. Starring PeeCee and Harman Baweja, this movie was such a tragedy, we bet Priyanka wouldnât mind erasing this âfuturisticâ romance flick from the face of the earth. We personally wouldnât mind that either. 7. Ranveer Singh © Yash Raj Films Rated 2.4, Gunday probably doesnât even deserve a rating of more than 1.5 rotten eggs. Right from Ranveer and Arjunâs oiled bodies throughout the film, to the shitty screenplay and Arjun Kapoorâs ridiculous acting, this one definitely deserves to be on the list. 8. Tiger Shroff © Balaji Motion Pictures Tiger has two flop movies to his name on this list - Munna Michael and Flying Jatt. Letâs not even get to the acting part because come on, weâre talking about Tiger here and he has no relation to acting whatsoever. Whatâs even more disappointing (for him) is that even his kicks and punches couldnât save the show. Got any movie by Bollywood A-listers that you particularly hate? Let us know in the comments section! View the full article
  8. Bollywood actors have time and again surprised us with their brilliant acting skills but it's not just acting that make them so well-established in the industry. These actors are multi-talented and have proven their prowess in a lot of other fields for example direction, production and in some cases, even writing a film as well. Here's a list of actors who actually turned scriptwriters for movies and showed us that talent has no bounds. 1. The Girl In Yellow Boots By Kalki KoechlinA movie that was highly acclaimed in Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, Kalki had turned scriptwriter for That Girl In Yellow Boots. Even though the movie failed to strike a chord with the audience, her dexterity with acting was highly lauded. 2. Satte Pe Satta By Kader KhanKnown for his exemplary comedy back in the 90s, Kader Khan had not just tickled our funny bone but also had a hidden talent of writing good scripts. He penned down the storyline, not for one but many movies that include Coolie, Toofan, Agneepath, Yaarana, Mahguru and a few others. 3. Ghayal Once Again By Sunny DeolSunny Deol's Ghayal was a massive success in 1990 but the actor came back with another hit Ghayal Once Again, where he wasn't just an actor or the director of the film but he also indulged himself into writing the whole plot with the help of other writers for the movie. That's what we call multi-talented! 4. Mukkabaaz by Vineet Kumar SinghActor Vineet Kumar Singh impressed us with his stellar acting in Ugly and Gangs Of Wasseypur. But he didn't limit his skills to just that and took to writing for Anurag Kashyap's movie, Mukkabaaz. He was also the lead actor and this sports action movie was quite well-received. 5. Shahenshah By Jaya BachchanNot many people know this but Shahenshah was the reason why Amitabh Bachchan's career soared high and it got back the lost fame, courtesy his wife Jaya Bachchan, who was the scriptwriter for Shahenshah. The screenplay though was later done by Inder Raj Anand. 6. Love Per Square Foot By Sumeet Vyas Owing to his popularity with TVF's Permanent Roommates, Sumeet Vyas has now become a well-known face even in Bollywood.

Not just that, he has also co-written Vicky Kaushal's movie called Love Per Square Foot which was launched on a digital platform. View the full article
  9. If thereâs one actor who is both on-screen and off-screen hero, it is undoubtedly actor Sonu Sood. With his generous initiatives to send the migrant workers to their respective home states who were stranded in the middle of nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus, he has earned a ânational heroâ status. This time around, the 46-year-old actor has come to the aid of his R... Rajkumar co-star Surendra Rajan. The latter had come to Mumbai to film a web series when the lockdown was announced in March, and has been stranded in the city ever since. According to a Navbharat Times report, when Sood came to know of Rajanâs plight, he offered his assurance that heâd send Rajan back to his hometown of Satna before June 18. Rajan, who has also appeared in Munna Bhai MBBS, said, âSonu Soodâs work is amazing and I am surprised that a man is working like this. One cannot do this unless he has a tremendous will to help people from within. He is doing extraordinary work and people like Sonu Sood are rare.â View the full article

  11. CarryMinati aka Ajey Nagar is one of the trending YouTube star who is hogging all the limelight, credited to the controversies surrounding him. Just recently, he was trending because of the feud between the followers of TikTok and YouTube. CarryMinati has over 21 million subscribers on YouTube, and over five million followers on Instagram. The young boy from Faridabad, who didnât have any interest in studies, had no idea that his YouTube will once turn his fate around. He started the trend of videos wherein he took a pot-shot at a few popular names that also trend on social media platforms. On his 21st birthday, we decided to look through his channel and see the people he has roasted. 1. BB Ki Vines Aka Bhuvan BamCarryMinati rose to fame overnight after he made a video targeting Bhuvan Bam who was flourishing because of Musically (which is now TikTok). Carry took potshots at Bhuvan and the lack of creativity. He also took a dig at the baseless videos that Bhuvan used to do on the app. . This video got him all the attention that he was yearning for as BBâs fans ripped him apart but thanks to this one video, people started to know Carry in a better way. 2. Ashish ChanchlaniAshish Chanchalani conquered Facebook and CarryMinati didnât spare him either. He even targeted his upbringing as his content, according to Carry, was next level cringe worthy. He even called Ashish a âf*ckboiâ for that matter. Well, thatâs quite harsh! 3. Dhinchak PoojaWell, we all know that Dhinchak can come with some crazy content that absolutely made no sense. CarryMinati took a dig at the songs that she has been coming up with because they are nothing but cringe worthy. He also said that itâs time for her to stop singing in her dissonant voice. Well, many people agreed to Carryâs point of view. 4. Amir SiddiquiA while back, CarryMinati was dominating all the trends because of his video named YouTube vs Tik Tok:'The Endâ that went viral. In the video, he made a direct attack on TikToker Amir Siddiqui. In no time, the video garnered a million views but it was deleted from YouTube for violating its terms of service. 5. Swami Om From Bigg BossSwami Om was a controversial figure in himself and CarryMinati reminded people why he was the most hated in the house. He took a dig at his controversial statements wherein Swami Om claimed that Bigg Boss used to send in cocaine in the house. Swami Om even claimed that he slapped Salman Khan and Carry went on to say that Swami comes from some other planet. This roast is surely one of the funniest videos on his page. On this note, we wish him a very happy birthday as he continues entertaining his fans. View the full article
  12. Making it big in the Bollywood industry and sustaining the success are two different things. It takes a while to resonate with the audience but in some cases, despite trying everything, it is merely impossible to catch everyone's attention, after all, it is all about making an impact, right? Be it for the star kids or the new entrants, unfortunately, success is a long call and more often than not, these celebrities just disappear from the big screen. Here's a list of actors who moved away from the limelight and this is what they are up to right now. 1. Uday Chopra © Twitter/UdayFC Uday Chopra is the son of the well-known filmmaker, Yash Chopra, who made his debut with Mohabbatein. But this actor's career graph was only declining and movies like Neal n Nikki, Pyaar Impossible etc all tanked at the box office. He was last seen in the third instalment of Dhoom. The actor, after all the struggle finally moved into the international arm of Yash Raj Films banner. 2. Vatsal Seth © Youtube/Bollywoodhungama Vatsal Seth's face is a reminder that Taarzan: The Wonder Car would not be the same if it wasn't for him. The actor is also remembered for the character of Jai from Just Mohabbat Show. But after being away from the limelight in B-town, the actor bagged a lot of television shows where he was able to prove his prowess. Recently, though. he was last seen in Malang where he did a cameo. 3. Rajat Barmecha © MXP Player After doing a great film like Udaan, it was expected that we will get to see more of Rajat Barmecha, who also won the Best Male Debut award. But since it was a highly acclaimed movie, the actor faded away from the limelight. Ever since he has only been doing cameos in short films. The talented actor was last involved in a series named Hey Prabhu. 4. Kumar Gaurav © Pinterest Kumar Gaurav gave his debut in Bollywood with Love Story but after a string of flop movies, the actor failed to make a mark in the industry. Since his career graph was only declining, the actor resorted to working on television along with some dubbing roles. At the moment, he is into travel and construction business. 5. Giselle Monterio © Youtube/Filmytoday The Brazillian model, Giselle Monterio had a mind-blowing start in Bollywood with Imitiaz's film, Love Aaj Kal. Post that, she was also a part of Always Kabhi Kabhi but she has been under the radar since then. Turns out, she had to quit Bollywood so that she could pursue architecture from the University of Vila Velha, Brazil and as per reports, the actress has no plans of coming back to the industry. 6. Fardeen Khan © Twitter/Fardeen Khan FC Fardeen Khan was touted to be the big thing in the Bollywood industry but unfortunately, due to back to back flops like Khushi, Dev etc, the actor failed to grab good scripts. Eventually, his stardom in Bollywood faded and his career went for a toss. After all sorts of controversies though, the last time we heard, the actor had moved to London with his family. 7. Sikander Kher © Twitter/Sikander Kher For the unversed, Sikander Kher is Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher's son. He gave his debut in Woodstock Villa after which he did several other movies but all of them failed to entice the audience and they tanked at the box office.

Adhyayan Suman © Twitter/AdhyayanSuman Adhyayan Suman is the son of Shekhar Suman, who also made an entry in Bollywood but none of the movies he did were able to make his mark in the industry.

  13. We have witnessed a lot of changes under lockdown, as a ânew normalâ is established every single day to sustain life around us. And now that everything from how we work to how we eat and interact with others, all of it has undergone drastic changes, Bollywood entertainers are doing their best to play catch-up and remain relevant in the âTimes of Coronaâ. One way that many Bollywood celebrities have tried to keep up in these gloomy times is through music. Music which is said to not only lift our mood, but also heal us physically and mentally. Since the beginning of the lockdown, a number of Bollywood actors have come out with their own singles with an aim to entertain as well as motivate millions of Indians stuck at home. So here are five such Bollywood actors who sang, filmed and released their own songs under lockdown and still managed to turn these made-from-scratch songs into big hits! 1. Siddhant Chaturvedi © YouTube The most recent addition to the list, Siddhant Chaturvediâs single âDhoopâ has caused quite a stir on social media. Written and sung by the man himself, the song will fill you with light through its bright lyrics and warm music. Check it out. 2. Salman Khan © YouTube Well, we already know how multi-talented Bhai is, from acting to painting and even singing, he has mastered different art forms. However, his two latest songs, âPyaar Karonaâ and âTere Binaâ which were created and launched amid the lockdown have been major chartbusters. 3. Ayushmann Khurrana © Instagram Ayushmann Khurrana Ayushmann Khurrana is a multi-faceted artist who has been letting his creative juices flow full-on amid the lockdown.

This track has been composed by my dear talented friend @rochakkohli and lyrics are by my amazing nikka phraa @ghuggss aka @mohtaaj_ . Iâm fortunate weâve been together since our formative years.

After singing âKaahe Chhedâ in Devdas, Madhuri recently released her own single called âCandleâ, which has earned her a lot of appreciation with more than 13 million views within days. 5. Shah Rukh Khan © Instagram Shah Rukh Khan Amid the on-going countrywide lockdown, SRK released his peppy song âSab Sahi Ho Jaegaâ in May which quickly became a top shared video on social media.

  14. The one thing our precious Bollywood celebrities are best at doing is not actually acting but being a hypocrite. Being woke and standing against injustices when they happen to be in a different country, but always remaining silent when it comes to their own country is performative activism at best. When there were protests happening in India, no celebrity openly expressed their opinions - for or against - them but with everything going on in the USA right now, the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police and the widespread protest against police brutality, so many people have been quick to post #BlackLivesMatter on their Instagram story. © Reuters Okay yes, it's good that they're at lease speaking about racial injustices in the world but, oh wait, they're so proudly claiming that âBlack Lives Matterâ right now but where did that 'wokeness' go when they were promoting fairness creams which basically imply that fairness is the final goal and being darker is something that should be changed. A conversation about how damaging fairness products are, is a long and tiring one and it has been going on for years, yet there's no change. Honestly, Abhay Deol is the only valid actor who had the guts to call out his fellow actors about doing such ads. © Facebook A brilliant Twitter thread by user @aluminiummaiden shared Indian celebs fake activism and their fairness cream ad side-by-side and it's honestly hilarious and sad at the same time. Let's start with our favourite, the one and only Priyanka Chopra. List of Indian actors who are speaking on BLM and their fairness cream ads, a thread : pic.twitter.com/yUeRNLch6U â anti pigeon (@aluminiummaiden) May 31, 2020 Of course, Sonam Kapoor has to be a part of this, it would feel incomplete without her presence. pic.twitter.com/rjIeQlyqQf â anti pigeon (@aluminiummaiden) May 31, 2020 Disha Patani, a simple question - If all colours are beautiful, why are you promoting being as fair as possible? pic.twitter.com/AYqgaabyju â anti pigeon (@aluminiummaiden) May 31, 2020 I'm actually disappointed that Deepika Padukone is here because at least she wasn't silent during protests in India. This is very vague but let's count it pic.twitter.com/qCRWKsORMw â anti pigeon (@aluminiummaiden) May 31, 2020 I don't know if it's worse. "how true is your fairness?" pic.twitter.com/hSV2FGzcxV â anti pigeon (@aluminiummaiden) May 31, 2020 The hypocrisy is astounding. The same intellectuals who are tweeting 'black lives matter' will see the atrocities in Kashmir and the lynching and carnage of Muslims in India through the prism of patriotism. They will ask you to 'speak like an Indian first' and not defame the nation. â Rana Ayyub (@RanaAyyub) May 31, 2020 Exactly. if they rly learned better and are sorry theyâd publicly speak against colourism in India TO Indians who are extemely colourist towards each other these Bollywood celebs know how much theyâre worshipped in South Asia but refuse to use their influence https://t.co/LmBP26MtmW â amanlicious (@roadkilledaman) May 31, 2020 Sums it up. Indian actors: black lives matter! Also Indian actors: buy this fairness cream because being dark-skinned is a âconditionâ and calling it out does not in anyway emphasize caste differences https://t.co/p6Op1zGYuQ â Pranav (@pranaveight) June 1, 2020 This is some amazing level of hypocrisy.

  15. Though the world of Bollywood celebrities appears hunky-dory, it is also a mix of a truckload of controversies sometimes. Then be it affairs or relationships, when it comes to love even these celebrities have dealt with the thick and thins of relationships. While on the other side of the spectrum we might assume that they are able to handle everything, in some cases even they have spoken out loud about their breakups. Here are celebrity statements that show love is indeed a hurtful journey, sometimes. 1. Deepika Padukone © Instagram/DeepuRan_FC Breakups become an integral part of our lives and they teach us so many things as a person. Deepika Padukone, who went vocal about her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, also had to bare it all when she broke up with him. She said in one of the interviews "I was foolish enough to give him a second chance because he begged and pleaded, despite the fact that everyone around me said he was still straying. Then I actually caught him red-handed. It took me a while to get out. But having done that, nothing can make me go back. That ship has sailed. It made me realise I should not be so attached to one thing or a person - after the break-up the fact that I had to pick myself up. I cried a lot after my break-up. But I have become a better person and I thank him for that." 2. Shahid Kapoor © Instagram/DeepuRan_FC Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan dated for a very long time as we all know. But their breakup was not quite seamless. Shahid never discussed things in detail but quoted in of the interviews, "Yes, it was a very trying period for me for almost a month, and it was very clearly a question for me of choosing between my personal feelings and my profession. I had two choices, one was to come back and not talk at all, not go out in the press and not interact with the mediaâ which would save me the pain of answering questions which I am uncomfortable about, or go out there and promote my film which was released in three weeks. I chose to do the latter because I think it was important for me as a hero to be there for my film and I had great faith in the film. So yes it was difficult and uncomfortable but I accepted that as a part of the way things work out here." 3. Sushant Singh Rajput © Instagram/SushantSingh_FC For someone who dated a girl for over a decade, breaking up would not have been easy on him. Sushant Singh Rajput fell for Ankita Lokhande during Pavitra Rishta and they called it quits in 2016 . He said that there is nothing left to learn and the next time he gets into a relationship, he won't make it a big deal. So that if something goes wrong, it does not become a big deal. Fair enough! 4. Katrina Kaif © Youtube It was not just Deepika Padukone who went vocal about her relationship with Ranbir but we also have Katrina Kaif in line who also opened up a bit post her break up. She said that it was a difficult time and she would not want to discuss it and would like to keep in under wraps. 5. Bipasha Basu © Wikipedia John Abraham and Bipasha Basu as well announced their split after 10 years of being together. When she was asked about the failed relationship, she said "No. It was definitely not amicable. No break-up is ever amicable. Otherwise, no one would break up. There are always reasons. Otherwise, there wonât be any break-ups." 6. Illena D'Cruz © Instagram/ Illena D'Cruz Illena was in a relationship with a photographer from Australia called Andrew Kneebone. However, they have now parted ways after being together for a couple of years. She said "I don't get upset. When you are going through a situation like this, you understand the value of your family and friends. It's the same that happened to me. I had my family and closest friends supporting me right through it." Way to go, Illena! View the full article

And despite the adversity the world is facing right now, some story from some corner of the country ensures we get our daily dose of positivity. One such story is of 20-year-old Janmoni Gogoi who hails from Assamâs Dibrugarh and works hard to run her family. Of late, owing to the COVID-19 nationwide lockdown, she has been selling vegetables on a bicycle to support her ailing parents. As soon as her story got published in newspapers, the police in Dibrugarh gifted a moped bike to the woman under the initiative of Assam police chief Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta. Janmoni Gogo sells vegetables on a bicylcle to fend for her family. Inspired by her self respect & guided by our visionary @DGPAssamPolice Sir's direction to transform ourselves from police force to facilitators of economy, DYSP HQ gifted the little entrepreneur a moped / bike pic.twitter.com/kncyhRQEr9 â Dibrugarh Police (@dibrugarhpolice) May 11, 2020 As per the report, owing to the poor financial condition, Gogoi had to drop out of high school. For the last two years, she has been helping her mother sell vegetables at a market in her hometown. After the nationwide lockdown due to the deadly coronavirus was imposed in March, she started selling vegetables door-to-door on her bicycle. "I am thankful to Dibrugarh Police because they gifted me a moped bike to sell vegetables. After reports on me got published, people are coming to help me. I have struggled during the lockdown because I had to ferry vegetables on cycle and had to cover long distances on cycle. Now, I can easily take the vegetables on the moped bike," she said. "My father has been ailing for the last 18 years. He cannot walk, and my mother sells vegetables in the Borbaruah market to run the family. Since the nationwide lockdown, our business got affected. I then decided to sell vegetables on the cycle and started taking them door-to-door," she added. The residents of Ghogora village also heaped praises on the girl. One of the villagers said, âWe are proud of Janmoni because she is a true inspiration and encourages others with her good works. We hope for her future success.â Meanwhile, Dibrugarh police officer, who handed over the moped to Gogoi, said, âWe got to know about Janmoni from the media. Under Dibrugarh Superintendent of Police Sreejith T, we decided to help her but she refused to take any monetary help from us." "She had self-respect and didn't want any help from us. Then we decided to gift her a moped bike which will help her carry vegetables. We are proud of her and she is a true inspiration for others," the officer added. View the full article
  17. Mothers are always special. No matter the period or age, mothers continue to be one of the biggest role models in most peopleâs lives. They can love us to death, and beat the shit out of us in the same breath. They are the most loyal cheerleaders weâll ever come across in life, and the most brutal critics who can set us right by merely using the right words. © Instagram Mothers are multi-talented. Their knowledge is endless, their wisdom has saved our lives on multiple occasions, there doesnât exist a better multi-tasker than her and no love so abundant and selfless. No matter how much we try to deny it, we cannot help but seek her out all the freaking time! Despite the arguments and show-downs, all it takes for things to go back to normal is âkuch bana du khane ke liye?â Mothers are priceless, and more often than not, we forget to tell her so. © Deepika Padukone FC But there are a few Bollywood heroes who arenât so shy about expressing their love for their mom, and openly share how much they adore her. Here are 5 such leading Bollywood stars who publicly adore their moms and donât give a shit about being called a âmamaâs boyâ: 1. Vicky Kaushal © Instagram Vicky Kaushal may be known as a shy young man, but when it comes to expressing his admiration for his mom Veena, Vicky comes through as a doting son. We already know that Vicky is pretty close to his family, but when it comes to showing it, Vicky does not hold back. View this post on InstagramDodging them till date. Keep them coming Maa. Love you! â¤ï¸A post shared by (@vickykaushal09) 2. Kartik Aaryan © Instagram Kartik Aaryan is especially out there when it comes to showering his mom Mala with all the attention both in real and reel life. We often see him sharing pictures with his mother and sister, whom he calls his biggest pillars of strength. And understandably, Kartikâs mom too doesnât seem to mind the mushy-ness one bit.

Shahid Kapoor © momspresso Shahid and his mom Neelima share a very strong bond. She has been a part of every significant event in the actorâs life despite being divorced from his father Pankaj Kapur.

Aparshakti Khurrana © Instagram Aparshakti may not be as poetically gifted as his older brother Ayushmann, but that doesnât stop him from expressing how much he admires their mother Poonam. Right from going on trips together to clicking endless photos with her, Aparshakti makes sure his mother knows how much she is adored.

He is most definitely a mamaâs boy through and through. Ranbir can often be found right beside his mom Neetu during public outings, and if rumours are to be believed, takes her wishes into consideration very seriously. Even during family gatherings, they usually hang out in the same circles.

  19. Being successful in anything you do is never a cakewalk. Lives of the successful might look bright and beautiful but even they were once at a stage wherein fame and goals were a far game for them. Rejections are just a milestone of reaching to the top of the hill. Many acclaimed Bollywood actors were also once rejected but their consistency and hard-work led them to where-ever they are today. Here is a list of Bollywood actors who were rejected at the beginning of their career but won us over with consistency: 1.

Irrfan Khan View this post on InstagramHaasil se Hindi Medium tak , villain se popular Hero tak. Thank you #StarScreenAwards2017 !!A post shared by (@irrfan) Irrfan Khan created his own niche in the country. His fans skipped a beat as soon as the news of his demise went public.

He is the only actor who has been able to make it big in both Hollywood and Bollywood and has given us some amazing movies to re-watch. 5.

  22. Social media comes with its own share of the good and the bad. While it is known to be a great place for infotainment, the aspect of instant virality also successfully keeps people on the edge. Now, while that might affect a common man in one way, virality hits celebrities very differently. © BCCL Given their wide popularity and mass following, celebrity virality comes with its own share of drawbacks, especially in the case of tweets and comments which become sensational given their harmful or offensive streaks. We have often witnessed celebrities being publicly called out and virtually bashed for their âinsensitiveâ comments, which forces them to see the wrong in their action and own up to it. Here are 5 celebrities who publicly apologised for their insensitive tweets in recent times. 1. Karan Johar © Instagram Karan Johar is known to be pretty active on social media and has kept up the tradition even under lockdown by constantly sharing fun videos featuring his children Roohi and Yash. However, after the director recently came across an online video titled âThank You Celebritiesâ which showed how international celebs are âenjoyingâ during the lockdown and forgetting about real peopleâs struggles, he took to his Twitter account and âprofuselyâ apologized for lacking âemotional foresightâ and posting insensitive posts on his feed. This hit me hard and I have realised many of my posts may have been insensitive to many...I apologise profusely and wish to add none of it was intentional and came from a place of sharing but clearly may have lacked emotional foresight ....am sorry!ï¸ https://t.co/MO3kHkDQdo â Karan Johar (@karanjohar) April 25, 2020 However, many of his followers have commented saying there is no need for an apology because his intent wasnât particularly wrong. 2. Anand Mahindra © BCCL While almost all of Mahindraâs tweets are well-received by his followers, one of his recent tweets containing a picture of a poor mother and her toddler wearing âleafâ masks didnât sit well with his follower and comedian Aditi Mittal, wherein he had said âItâs not just about #MaskIndia but also a greener world. A reminder that nature already provides us with all that we need..â Aditi replied on the tweet with this, Anand, this is NOTHING to be celebrated. There is NO EVIDENCE that wearing a leaf provides ANY kind of protection. They are not doing this environmental awareness, they are doing this because govs who were supposed to provide them this life saving mask have forsaken them. â awryaditi (@awryaditi) April 25, 2020 And being the graceful gentleman that Mr Mahindra is, he accepted his oversight and sent out a public apology. Youâre right, I can see how my tweet appeared insensitive to the inequity of the situation. Iâve deleted it. https://t.co/YL2Ucqrc9e â anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 25, 2020 3. Divyanka Tripathi © Twitter - sakshi3010 TV actress Divyanka Tripathi was called out recently for her insensitive tweet during the early stages of coronavirus outbreak in Maharashtra. With many people practising social distancing, Mumbai roads had become free of traffic jams, which made Divyanka say, âWith such less traffic in Mumbai, it seems like an opportunity to quickly complete metro, bridges and smooth roads." This didnât sit well with her followers and one of them called out the actor and said: As if the engineers & construction worker life r not important .. such an vague & unrequired tweet at this moment â siya mishra.. (@siya_siyamishra) March 17, 2020 Many other users also said that Divyankaâs tweet was inappropriate, following which the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actor accepted her error and apologized. My apologies. Point taken. https://t.co/WXQUkRFee1 â Divyanka T Dahiya (@Divyanka_T) March 17, 2020 She also went on to add, We all are humans and susceptible to errors. In this volatile & violent social media world, important question is: If someone's capable of realizing and apologizing..ARE YOU CAPABLE OF FORGIVING AND MOVING ON? Should everything be News & point of argument? Where's humanity there? â Divyanka T Dahiya (@Divyanka_T) March 17, 2020 4. Akshay Kumar © Viral Bhayani End of last year saw a huge uproar on social media when tweets showing actor Akshay Kumar âlikedâ a video that mocked the attack on Jamia students amid the mass protests that broke out in the university area in December over the CAA-NRC issue. For people requesting Bollywood stars for raising their voice against police brutality on Jamia students. Here is our Hero @akshaykumar who "likes" a tweet mocking brutal attack on Jamia Milia students. He has now unliked it. #JamiaProtest pic.twitter.com/tgYwOiHDQ6 â Mohammed Zubair (@zoo_bear) December 16, 2019 Though Akshay swiftly unliked the post as soon as the news broke, he went ahead and made a public announcement stating, âRegarding the âlikeâ on the tweet of Jamia Milia students, it was by mistake. I was scrolling and accidentally it must have been pressed and when I realised I immediately unliked it as in no way do I support such acts.â 5. Vivek Oberoi © Twitter - TheReel_in Early last year, actor Vivek Oberoi landed himself in a soup when he shared a rather distasteful meme on his Twitter handle, which linked the exit polls to Aishwarya Rai Bachchanâs romantic life which also involved him at one point. © Twitter - Iam_AJain Following backlash and a notice to himself by the National Commision for Women, Vivek ended up deleting the tweet and extended an apology saying, âEven if one woman is offended by my reply to the meme, it calls for remedial action. Apologies...tweet deleted.â Sometimes what appears to be funny and harmless at first glance to one, may not be so to others. I have spent the last 10 years empowering more than 2000 underprivileged girls, I cant even think of being disrespectful to any woman ever. â Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) May 21, 2019 View the full article
  23. MCU action director Sam Hargraveâs latest release Extraction hit Netflix on April 24 - featuring plenty of balls-to-the-wall action, awesome performances from Indian actors such as Randeep Hooda and last but not least, Chris Hemsworth himself as Tyler Rake, a near-unstoppable black-market merc with a heart of gold. Cast alongside Hemsworth as Tylerâs handler and primary contact Nik, Iranian-born actress Golshifteh Farahani makes an appearance in this film, and if you think she seems familiar, youâd be right - sheâs got her own storied filmography that dates back all the way to 1998, and is one hell of a formidable talent in her own right. Here are a few surprising details on one of the filmâs hidden gems. Beginnings As A Child Actor © Farabi Cinema Foundation Born in Tehran in 1983, Farahaniâs relationship with acting began at the tender age of 6 when she was introduced to the challenge and prestige of theatre acting - a passion that sheâs kept close to date. However, it was at the age of 14 that she acted in her first film The Pear Tree (1998), for which she won the prize for the Best Actress from the international section of the Fajr film festival, immediately cementing her as one of Iranian cinemaâs rising new talents. Actingâs In Her Blood © Twitter @Ansherli20 Behzad Farahani, Golshifteh's father, is an actor and screenwriter himself. Golshiftehâs mother, Fahimeh Rahimnia, is also an actress and her sister, Shaghayegh Farahani, is in the business too. It only made sense for Golshifteh to continue in the family business, so to speak, even if her talents took her out of Iran as she began to explore roles in other countries, including the United States. Not Just An Actress © MACT Productions Aside from her pretty successful career in acting, Farahani has also dabbled quite seriously in music. Her underground rock band Kooch got the first prize at the 2nd Tehran Avenue Underground Rock Festival in 2003. Rock music and women singing are banned in Iran. Sheâs even melded together both talents - in her extremely well-acclaimed role in the 2007âs controversial The Music Man, Farahani plays the piano as part of her performance. Hollywood Presence © Amazon Studios Farahaniâs long list of roles isnât just limited to poignant and beautifully crafted Persian films - sheâs also taken on appearances in everything from major summer blockbusters to romcoms. Youâll find her in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Exodus: Gods & Kings alongside Aaron Paul and Christian Bale - while she played a lighter role alongside Adam Driver in 2016âs heartfelt drama, Paterson. Political Activism © Entertainment One One reason why Farahaniâs filmography gradually tapers away from her Iranian homeland is the deeply orthodox and inflexible state bureaucracy of Iran, which prohibits several freedoms of speech, particularly with respect to women. After she appeared nude in films and photoshoots, Iranian officials spoke out against her and it was reported that she had been effectively banned from the country. © Inforg-M & M Film Kft Speaking out against her exile, she said in a 2012 statement, âExile is like death. You cannot understand it until it happens to you. The whole world wants to see you as a victim and they push you to be even more a victim because they see you miserable and they feel good.â The actress has also taken on a role in Girls of the Sun, portraying the lives of Kurdish female insurgency fighters - a heavily political issue within the Middle East. With Extraction taking another notch in her long career, we canât wait to see her next appearance in film - perhaps a return to some of the touching dramas weâve seen before? View the full article
