According to Karan Johar it seems that its not only women who love to chatter. He shared his take on gossiping and whether men or women, do it more. Karan said, “Men, undoubtedly, bitch harder than women; they can be vicious. I enjoy it tremendously! I laugh because I find it all so silly. You will be surprised to see how grown-ups behave sometimes. I think, after a certain point in life, many people go back to being school kids. It’s like midlife crisis, where you don’t want to lose your youth, so you start behaving like a child. I am a victim of it myself.
“I enjoy watching people, who have problems with other people. I get some strange sort of pleasure. You suddenly feel very superior when you see other people having problems. It is human nature and I relish these situations. In my experience, men undoubtedly bitch harder than women! Women speak their mind and get it out of the way. Men can brood for years. They won’t get it out of their head and use it against the person if required. Men can be vicious. Women don’t allow anything to fester. They are emotionally balanced. Men are complicated and insecure; anything that threatens them shakes their foundation. They are deluded and stay in denial.”
Big B embroiled in lawsuit
This actually drives me nuts every time. A film in Bollywood is about to release, the promotions have been going on, you have a basic idea of what the story line is and suddenly just a week before the release someone somewhere suddenly wakes up and decides to kick up a fuss with the law.
While Amitabh Bachchan and the makers of his next film Bhoothnath Returns are engrossed in promoting their film, a social activist from Pune, Hemant Patil, has accused the actor of promoting superstitious beliefs, and filed a petition before a court seeking action against him.
In his petition, Patil has demanded a police complaint against Bachchan and others under the new Maharashtra Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifices and Other Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act, 2013. The reason behind this petition being, Bachchan's recent portrayal of a ghost in a TV commercial for a children's health drink. According to Patil, the said advertisement promotes the belief in the existence of ghosts and spirits while simultaneously pursuing the need for magic to ward them off. Apart from this, Patil also contends that the health drink company released the TV commercial without adding an appropriate disclaimer before or after the broadcast that further adds to the damage caused.
In response to the petition filed, Mumbai magistrate Sita Kulkarni has placed the matter for hearing April 18.
Sonakshi Sinha asked to campaign for her dad
With former actor and BJP candidate Shatrughan Sinha facing a tough contest for the Patna Sahib Lok Sabha seat, party workers and supporters say it will be great if his daughter, Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha, campaigns for him.
“Unlike last time, it is not going to be a walk in the park for Shatrughan. He should invite his daughter Sonakshi to campaign for him. Her star power will help him tide over the odds against him in the polls,” said Bharatiya Janata Party worker Rupesh Kumar.
Mahesh Prasad, another BJP worker and fan of Shatrughan, said just a road show by Sonakshi for her father will change the situation in the sitting MP’s favour. ”Her visit to the constituency is bound to change the equation,” he said.
Fruit vendor Arjun Singh said Sonakshi Sinha was a big star, like her father was in the past. ”Her appeal will make a difference. We want Sonakshi to campaign for him,” he said.
BJP leaders close to Shatrughan also said party workers want Sonakshi to campaign. ”It is a natural demand because star power matters. But for now, there is no such plan to invite her for campaigning,” senior BJP leader Nand Kishore Yadav said.
Shatrughan’s elder son Luv has been giving him company during the campaign. Sonakshi has not been able to find time because of her shooting commitments but has taken to the social media for the purpose. Sonakshi has 7 million followers on Twitter to whom she has been sending messages in favour of her father, her mother Poonam Sinha said.
