Oh there is so much to talk about with today’s stories! Not the actual stories, they are the usual fake bland PR stuff, but what they mean and what we think about them and all KINDS of things!!!!

News Round-Up: Pick Your Most Wanted YRF Film, Brahmastra Delayed Again (SHOCKING!), and Ayushmann in a Dharma Production

I started out with 8 news stories, and then I actually read them, and they all turned out to be bland and blah. Even these aren’t super exciting, but if PR departments care enough to float stories and watch the response, the least we can do is respond.

News Round-Up: Casting Rumors of Future Films! 2000s Are Back, Suniel, Preity, and Maddy Are All Rumored

Everyone decided to start the work week by giving bollywoodhungama stories that may or may not be true depending on what the future holds. I should join in! I can tell bollywoodhungama that I am currently planning to make a flash mob youtube video that will go viral. Will I? Doesn’t matter! The story is that, as of this moment, I am PLANNING to do so.

Instagram Update: Harsh Huh, Kat Cute, Patralekha Pyaari

My office is both extremely hot (the heater is malfunctioning) and busy (so many phone calls!), so I’m not even gonna do a real news analysis post. On the other hand, lots to discuss from Instagram! Well, lots of shallow image based gossip to discuss.

So many news stories! I’m catching up, so this isn’t exactly “breaking” news, but there are lots of interesting little things over the past week or so that I want to talk about with you all. I’ll break them down into many many MANY posts over the course of the day.

Hindi Film 101 on Rape and Laws/News Round-Up Part 1: Court Cases! Rape and Fraud, and Blackbucks

So many news stories today! I’m gonna start with the two big think-y ones, the ones with massive legal implications, a rape case of a minor actor/band member (trust me, you haven’t heard of him and will have no emotional response because of fandom), and the same old Blackbuck case. And after I get this long deep boring post out of the way, I will move on to Imraan Khan getting divorced and fun stuff like that.

News Round-Up: Harshwardhan Rane is In a Movie That Won’t Happen, Kangana Tries to Start Feuds That Won’t Happen, Tiger 3 WILL Happen, and Shahrukh’s PR is Happening

Nothing super duper interesting here, just stories that are continuations of other stories, or else rumors of things that won’t happen. But it’s Monday, we need things to talk about!

Hrithik Kangana Ekta Discussion Space, I Am So Tired of This!!!!

Oh boy, I get to recap the whole Hrithik-Kangana thing again! The only good thing is, I was team Hrithik from the start (go me!) because Kangana’s story was always just WEIRD, and his wasn’t. So I get a little ego-boost each time it comes up again. But that is literally the ONLY good thing. Otherwise, it is all stressful and exhausting and strangely repetitive. I would much rather go back to Kangana’s weird work issues than digging up her work-personal issues.

News Round-Up/Discussion Post: K-Pop and Korea Arrives, Janvhi is Innocent, SRK Sells Movies, Kajol-Ajay Move House, Nyssa is Trolled, Alia and Osho, Kangana Directs, Varun is Stalked, Nawazuddin Pulls Muscle

So many little little stories today! I don’t want to try to tie them together and they aren’t really worth deep discussion on their own, so instead I will throw it all out there and let you discuss.

News Update: Alia Responds to Kangana, Why Context is Important

Sometimes I really hate media. This is being sold as “Alia-Kangana Feud Heats Up!”, but really it is just Kangana making wild insane (literally) accusations and Alia trying not to deal with it. Exactly like the Hrithik situation, which was sold as “Hrithik-Kangana Break-Up Goes Bad!” instead of “Hrithik Roshan is Victimized by a Stalker”.
