And, we are back again. This week was a bunch of sadness, exhilaration and happiness, something which defines life and its uncertainties as well. Without further ado, let us peep into the top five things that buzzed around Bollywood, this week.
Veteran actor Vinod Khanna dies
The week started on a really sad note as Vinod Khanna, the original heartthrob of Bollywood, breathed his last, at the age of 70. Khanna had been suffering from gallbladder cancer and kept that a secret for long time, till an image of a frail and ailing him emerged, few days back. RIP sir, you have left a void no one would be able to fill, for a long time.
Rishi Kapoor goes on a long Twitter rant, post the death of co-star and friend, Vinod Khanna
Rishi Kapoor is a man who does not mince his words and expresses what is in his mind unabashedly and unapologetically. Post the demise of his friend and co-star Vinod Khanna, the actor took to his Twitter account to bash all the actors of the current generation who did not attend the funeral of Khanna, to pay last respects to a veteran. Ironically, the whole of the younger lot were present to attend Priyanka Chopra’s bash, but not Vinod Khanna’s funeral. Sad. Rishi also went on to bash the leading ladies of Khanna, as none of them were present to pay their last respects to the departed actor.
Armaan Malik and Sonakshi Sinha indulged in a war of tweets
Few days back, there was a rumour that Sonakshi Sinha had been approached to perform alongside Justin Bieber, in latter’s Indian tour. This irked many singers, given that Sonakshi is an actor and not a singer in profession. Singer Armaan Malik took to Twitter to express his displeasure and it was then that a war of tweets started between him and Sona. Not just that, even singer Sona Mohapatra voiced in her opinion and was subsequently blocked by Sonakshi. Sonakshi’s brother Luv Sinha, and Armaan’s brother Amaal Malik, who also is a singer-composer, too had their share of word-war on Facebook. Quite a mess it was, which could have been easily avoided as Sonakshi declared in the end that the news of her performing was just a ruse with no base.(Read Here : Sonakshi Sinha’s Brother Luv Sinha Takes A Dig At Amaal And Armaan Malik, Gets A BANG ON Reply!)
