His message was incontrovertibly positive as he urged us all to turn our backs on hate and haters. Is that a crime? If it is seen as one, then all that he talked about acquires instant validity. Jai Hind!

Shobhaa De | Friday November 12, 2021

A Tamil film titled Jai Bhim, directed by TJ Gnanavel, starring superstar Suriya playing real-life activist-lawyer Chandru, has triggered off a tempest in a boiling cauldron - not a tiny tea cup. Why? Because it hits home!

You are fortunate, indeed, and blessed to be born as Shah Rukh Khan's son. This was not just your battle, but his! You were not the one on trial - your father was.

Ms. Markle wished for an upgrade when she married a Prince. Look at her today - from a life in Buckingham Palace as a royal prisoner (her words) to a tacky existence as a Desperate Housewife from Beverly Hills.

There are saints and there are sinners - they coexist in shanti. Bollywood is not Juhu beach which can be cleaned up thanks to the efforts of a few. Bollywood was and remains a badass monster.

Several jaws must have dropped at Rhea's steely responses to every question, complete with dates, time lines, 'facts' and figures. It was a perfectly-scripted, glitch-free performance.

Shobhaa De | Thursday July 23, 2020

Bollywood is so bloody good at 'adjusting', it has now become a permanent way of life. Bollywood is a protean creature that can take any shape it wants to, whenever it wants, aaram se. Unfortunately, its pandemic shape is an eyesore.

Shobhaa De | Wednesday July 15, 2020

Sachin Pilot is Ashok Gehlot's Walkie-Talkie doll. A desi, Made-in-India doll. He is not blond but speaks "good English" and is "handsome". Khallas! He is done for.

Shobhaa De | Friday July 10, 2020

In Mumbai, we are used to looking for movie/showbiz references in real life, which is why we are wondering why those who are involved in this drama couldn't have hired a more competent script-writer. This reads worse than a C-grade crime thriller from the 70s.

Authenticity is all that matters - in life - and entertainment. So, please guys - get real. Get off your high horses. The world has changed when you weren't looking. Forget all the hogwash about 'filmi royalty' and 'first families' tripe.

Shobhaa De | Wednesday April 29, 2020

He was his own person from the moment he was noticed by Bollywood's best. His aloofness was not a studied act - he was aloof with good reason - he was that sure of his talent. I cannot recall a single major movie of his in which he let his own exceedingly high standards down as a performer.

The migrants aren't the only ones facing the spectre of death. What happens if more daily wage workers crowding our dazzling city of gold decide to face a lathi-charge, defy the lockdown and attempt to flee? Phir kya hoga, Kaliya?
