Happy Saturday! I am staying at my parents’ this weekend instead of going over to my place, the back and forth was getting to me. I think ideally I would do 8 or 9 nights at my parents, and then 3 nights at home, and then back again. But tragically work schedules don’t work like that. Anyway, staying at my parents! Which means I am both more available for blogging (because I don’t have a big project to work on) and less (because I have to be nice with the other people I am living with).
No big project, no going to my place this weekend. So instead I can sit back in my little bedroom like I’m a teenager again and sullenly watch TV/movies. Woo, so much streaming catch-up!
Now, things for you all to talk about! I took a dip into the pool of completely empty news and saw what I could bring up.
T-Series is beating the drums about making two sequels/franchises, Aashiqui and Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin. How do we feel about T-Series having the rights to these two Mahesh Bhatt creations? What does that mean in terms of the rights of the artist? Remember when they took Race away from Abbas-Mastan? Hmm.
Rumor has it that Karthik Aaryan and Rohit Dhawan (David’s son/Varun’s brother, director of Dishoom and Desi Boyz) are looking at remaking Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. Huh. I don’t have anything wrong with that team, Karthik has the good fast talking irreverance to do it, and Rohit has the lightly surreal and funny touch. But, why? Was there anything in the movie, beyond Allu Arjun himself, that was worth remaking?
Try not to be too upset, you missed out on the opportunity to have a virtual date with Arjun Kapoor. Anshula has a crowdfunding website platform to raise money for day laborers, and Arjun raffled off 5 virtual dates with himself. I know he’s probably “taken” already, but isn’t there that small possibility that he could have a virtual date with a fan and fall in love?
Okay, that’s all I’ve got! Now it’s time to raid my parents’ fridge for breakfast and think about putting on clothes instead of PJs so I can walk the dog.
