  • Whenever a celebrity does something whether good or bad, extraordinary or mundane, the news always manages to make its way to the headlines. The frenzy around Indian celebrities who became politicians is therefore justified. And when the theme is women-centric, it’s even better.
  • We all know actors who are also singers seem to be the latest trend in B-town. And you must be aware there are quite a few of them, but we have news for you! First, this trend is not new-found and secondly there are many celebrities who possess this talent. Shocked aren’t you?
  • Having a legal notice attached to one’s image is not good for any individual, but when you are a star, it is even worse, as every star has a brand name to maintain and landing up in trouble due to such unforeseen circumstances is nothing short of a controversy! Here is a list of top Bollywood stars who went to jail.
  • Delhi is not a place….its a feeling! Being the capital city, it has its advantages and disadvantages, but we sure love it more than anything. A lot of our stars are Delhi kids and proud to be a ‘Dilli ka Launda’ or ‘Delhi ki Tota’. Lets check them out!
  • The it couple Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor are back with a bang with Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos. As people cannot contain their excitement we came up with a very different theory relating Jagga with everyone’s favourite childhood comic Tintin. Lets get nostalgic as well as surprised!
  • Some artists in Bollywood have changed the way the industry functions. These artists have been very few, but they have turned the whole mindset of the filmmakers around. One such artist was Dev Anand. The man’s brilliance made him one of the most memorable artists in the history of Bollywood.
