  • Oscars, or the Academy Awards 2017 have just ended, and it was one hell of an event. After the Oscars award night, we thought of taking a satirical take on the academy awards by presenting the BAS KAR awards to the worst performances or appearances in Hindi cinema. The winners have been selected keeping in mind the ‘Tumse Naa Ho Payega’ tag line. LOL! Take a look at the winners…
  • Bollywood is known for its thoughtful stories and plots. Over the years, we have seen many women-centric roles, which have impacted our society in a large way. And, we are expecting the same in the year 2017, because it’s going to be a year full of superb movies, especially emphasizing on the womanhood. Here’s presenting to you all those spectacular Bollywood 2017 movies which will celebrate the very essence of a woman.
  • When we recall the hottest buzzword of the century “Feminism”, many people confuse it with “Male Bashing” which is absolutely rubbish. It is more to do with a genuine status quo and not looking low at the men. By default, India is a misogynist country and most of the men here do not respect the womanhood because yes, the country has a patriarchal set up which really needs to be set right. Hence, the influential women have to come-up and voice for all the women out there to drill some sense into the Indian system. Right from Neena Gupta to Kalki Koechlin and Priyanka Chopra, every Bollywood actress has opined for the female emancipation which has to be heard by all.
  • What if some of the Bollywood celebs were put into the various characters from the schools! Well, go through our hilarious take on them and enjoy! (P.S. - it is strictly funny, nothing personal!)
  • Bollywood is known for its drama and romance; and the directors always very creatively choose their on-screen couples! So, we thought, this Valentine’s Day let’s grace the Director’s chair and pair-up some Bollywood jodis who we’d want to see together in real life! Of course, many actors have worked together in n-number of films and after seeing them on and off the screen, we predicted some love affairs which should happen for real.
  • 2016 was a bundle-full of good movies and we enjoyed them a lot. So, here’s a good news for all the Bollywood fans, 2017 is said to hit the bar in an amazing way because there are many movies lined-up for you.
