Silly Sunday: Charles Sobhraj Inspired Netflix Miniseries Starring SRK and Katrina Kaif

Great, Netflix finally does a Charles Sobhraj miniseries like I have been wanting, but there is only a little bit of Sexy Desi Cop which was my MAIN requirement for a Charles Sobhraj miniseries! I mean, there is still some sexy desi cop, split between two separate sexy cops, but it’s not the main storyline like it would have been in my more fictionalized version.

Yes, it is time for me to do another Hanukkah post! Something with 8, oil, and a little bit of Jewishness….ABS! Including ARK! Yes, this is a perfectly respectful and appropriate post for the holiday.

Let’s Look at SRK’s Recent Tweets! They Aren’t That Exciting, But At Least They Exist!

Remember the golden days when Shahrukh’s twitter was just his stream of consciousness thoughts flowing out? I feel like people who missed that era, missed a whole part of him. When his fans say “he’s so smart, he’s so quick, he’s so original”, that’s what we are talking about. Unfiltered, unprocessed, pure SRK. You just can’t see it in the interviews or any other way. Anyway, now it is very filtered and very processed, but at least he is tweeting again.
