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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Bending the law can be addictive. People like them are hard-core addicts. I seriously doubt they have 'learnt a lesson'.
Salman Khan has given 14 consecutive 100-crore hits in a 10-year period. Bhai ho toh aisa!
Merely stating he'll "never forgive" her is not enough. It is disingenuous, at best. Show it! How will he 'punish' this awful woman? When? And excuse me, where are our law-makers? Too scared to comment?
From one khiladi to another...the much-touted non-interview has got to be the silliest political gimmick of this very, very silly season! The question is: Who emerged as Khiladi No. 1 in this corny exercise?
As we walked out, my pregnant daughter clutching her belly, and me clutching my head, I found myself singing the one track that was in perfect sync with my mood - "Tabaah ho gaye". Yes, I was devastated.
I am in a shaadi Como. Sorry, coma. My head is reeling trying to differentiate between the Bollywood superstars who tied the knot, exchanged rings, exchanged vows and what not. The destinations look the same. The outfits look ditto-ditto. Even the expressions are somewhat alike. As if the same movie director is behind the camera saying, "...and ACTION!"
"Buaji, PeeCee's friends from Hollywood are also saying he's a changa munda, and his parivaar has fully welcomed our kudi into their home. They are planning a big party on his 26th birthday next month."
