Masaan wows bollywood

Last week I watched the trailer to Masaan. I can see why Bollywood has gone gaga over this. I was completely taken too. Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan bagged two major awards at the Cannes Film Festival this year. There was a special screening hosted for the film fraternity and here’s what they had to say after watching the film.

Saw “Masaan”. A film that was given two awards at Cannes is undoubtedly a great movie. Congratulations team Masaan.

Neha Dupia has eventful week on twitter

Neha Dhupia (who was last seen vacationing in Budapest and being very active on Instagram about it) has become the latest celebrity to suffer the backlash of posting an outspoken Tweet. Yes, it was “anti-government” and questioned the authorities’ management of crisis situations.

After heavy rains brought Mumbai to a standstill last week, Neha first posted a ‘concerned’ tweet.

1. @NehaDhupia Jul 21

Mumbaikars pls be warned traffic outside is terrible,roads r flooded the situation is getting worse by the minute. Step out only if u must!

Then she tweeted:

2. @NehaDhupia Jul 21

One rain n the city comes to a standstill. Good governance is not about selfies n makin us do yoga,it’s making sure ur citizens r safe.

Details

This tweet immediately went viral and attracted quite a lot of attention, both negative and positive. So far, it has garnered 2800 retweets and over 2000 favourites. Now, we know that Neha has been MIA for a while and many have criticised her for trying to gather publicity by posting a deliberately provocative tweet, we’re sure that this isn’t the kind of limelight anyone would want to get thrown into.

Matters escalated quickly and Neha’s choice of films, political affiliations and everything in-between were targeted. All in all, Neha Dhupia had a very eventful Tuesday. The controversy has kind of died down now, at least on Twitter.

 

Want to set relationship goals? Do it the Anushka-Virat way

That Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are an adorable couple is no secret. The two kept their relationship under wraps for quite some time but now they’ve gone public, and how! These two have been spotted doing the cutest things together. They shop together, he carries her shopping bags, hangs out with her at Wimbledon, takes some pretty goofy selfies with her, and goes holidaying with her. Looks like romance isn’t dead at all.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Kabir Khan auditioned over thousands of kids to play ‘Munni’

The entire team of Bajrangi Bhaijaan auditioned kids on a vast scale to find their Munni. Only after auditioning over thousands of girls, Kabir found his Munni in Harshaali Malhotra. In order to maintain the secrecy around her character, her parents had to sign a contract with the production company.
