News Round-Up: Prerna Arora is in Jail, Manikarnika is still in Post-Production, Janhvi Kapoor is in a Helicopter?

Happy news round-up day!  I mostly just want to talk about Prenaa Arora, because I love talking about her.  And I want you all’s (y’all’s?  y’alls?) opinion on it.  But there’s also another fun “Manikarnika is a disaster from which none of us can escape” quote from set, and a “oh Karan, don’t even pretend this isn’t nepotism” story about Janhvi.

Katching Up on Koffee: Diljit and Badshah! Two nice boys from the Punjab!

What an interesting episode!!!!  Exactly what we have been asking for, Karan breaking out of the usual circuit of guests and being open to new topics and new considerations.  Also, yes, a lot about Salman and Shahrukh, but from a different angle than usual.

Kedarnath Review (No Spoilers): A Great Debut for Sara, Until the Very End

This is a hard review to write, because I don’t want to spoil the movie, but then on the other hand I need to be give you a clue of what kind of a film it will be so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to watch it.  I guess I will just say that I really liked the opening and the middle, but the ending did not work for me AT ALL.  So if you are able to enjoy a movie in pieces, can separate out sections, you will enjoy it a lot.  But if you can’t block out bits and pieces, (like me), then the bitter ugly bit is going to end up ruining the rest of it.  So, BE AWARE!

Saturday Small Talk: What Do You Want to Talk About While I Sleep In?

I am a lazy bear today!  Stayed up too late seeing Kedarnath and then trying to keep my eyes open to write a review, on top of a series of late nights and busy times.  So today I am giving myself some time to just do absolutely nothing.  Except pick up my rugs from the cleaners that I can only get to on Saturdays.  But otherwise, NOTHING!

I tried really really hard to come up with good imaginative theme this week.  And then I gave up and decided “Green! Like Christmas!” (disclaimer: green turns out to be a really tricky shade! Some of these photos looked green on my home computer and not on my work one.  After spending some time squinting, I just gave up and accepted that color can be subjective)

New Simmba Song! Yet Another Remix That Just Makes Me Miss the 90s

I can’t believe it, Karan released this on twitter exactly 5 minutes after I went to bed.  He must be watching me through his secret cameras and waiting until I go to sleep and only then releasing new stuff.  Evil Karan!  EVIL!  Or at least, a little mean.
