Nothing Can Fear Away The Sherni, Twinkle Khanna

Mrs FunnyBones aka Twinkle Khanna Gives it Back Left and Right to all The Salman Fans

It’s a free country and everyone has their freedom of speech, ‘terms and conditions’ applied though. But Salman fans have their own world of terms. Even a mild jibe at their Bhai can make them go crazy. But Twitterati note, when you are up against Twinkle Khanna, you will just have to shut up at the end.

Being the satirical columnist, Twinkle Khanna took Salman Khan to her column this time. It was a very funny classified though. No names mentioned, Twinkle wrote, ‘Alliance Invited For The Oldest yet the Most Eligible Bachelor of India. Dashing, Muscular, Non Vegetarian and Successful Khandani Boy. Excellent in Dance, Drama and Art. Girl must be pretty, slim and enjoy long drives off the beaten path. Bride must not be very talkative as the Groom cannot tolerate buck, buck. Caste No Bar. Contact Sultan @Bhaijaan.com.”

Ofcourse the column was written in good humour taking into account the friendly relation Salman has with Akshay. But what do you do with crazy fans of Salman? The post not only went down well with the Bhai fans, it inivited wrath of many and it all reflected in Twitter.

When your editor wants you to round up a convoluted year and all your brain wants to do is go HoHoHo:)

What is worse? @mrsfunnybones Being single (like Salman Khan) or betraying your then Best Friend Shilpa Shetty and married her boyfriend 😅

The leggy lass, who is all set to mark her debut in Hollywood film “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage” alongside Vin Diesel, has been equally rocking the scene back home at the Red Carpets. Deepika rocks this black number in IIFA 2016. We think no one wears it better than her.

Ranveer Singh

On-screen or off-screen, the “Bajirao Mastani” star manages to be the dashing handsome he is, at all events without fail and IIFA was no exception. The dazzling coat matched his exceptionally dazzling personality. The spiked hair and collar bow, he can make the common a style statement.

Sonam Kapoor

If it’s Sonam then there’s ought to be something different and this is the impression we have of this fashion diva. She has managed to leave the same stylish impact in 2016 and bang on she was. She simply perfected this all white bold look at the Cannes this year.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

No one knows better to grace the Red Carpet than the timeless beauty, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Her dazzling appearance at the Cannes Film Festival was proof enough that this lady defies age. Her smile, her poise always makes the former Miss World a Red Carpet favourite.

Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra

We wonder how Shilpa manages to maintain her curves years on! Is it Yoga or her genes that show? Nevertheless, she simply nailed this number by Shantanu and Nikhil at the IIFA this year. In a suit by the same designer duo, hubby Raj Kundra matched her just so well.

Salman Khan & Shahrukh Khan

The Khan duo can never disappoint us when it’s about dressing right. While Shahrukh looked every bit the dapper he is in that all black suit, Salman looked no less in that Marsala blazer at the Star Screen Awards 2016. Plus the two buddies posing together. Hmmm. Others wait a while.

While the “MS Dhoni” fame is going ways in his acting career, he looks rakish in that Antar Agni outfit at the recent Star Screen Awards 2016, doesn’t he? The cool boy looks and a next door neighbour attitude fetched him a red carpet topper moment.

Deepika Stands Out More Prominent Unlike PeeCee in New Poster

New Poster Out of xXx: Deepika Just Takes It Away From Priyanka.

The reigning queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone is all set to take over the globe with her Hollywood debut in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel. The new poster for the movie is out and the “Bajirao Mastani” star captures a significant space.

Deepika is the second prominent star in the poster followed by Xander (Vin Diesel) and just above Ruby Rose, the Australian model, and actress. Vampire Diaries famed Nina Dobrev has barely managed to get some space. The xXx team took to the Twitter and wrote, “Xander Cage is back in the new poster for #xXxTheMovie”. The poster also features Donny Yen (Chinese actor) who is being seen in the movie “Rogue One” that’s running in the theaters.

Talking of Deepika, she looks ravishing in a black outfit and long wavy hair proving it yet again that she wins the Hollywood race as a debutant compared to Priyanka Chopra. While Deepika is seen in a major portion of the xXx teaser, Pee Cee’s appearance in the Baywatch trailer was just a blink and miss. Although, according to the Baywatch makers her blink and miss presence is for a reason.

What we loved about the xXx trailer is that Deepika leaves a strong impact with her significant appearance in the teaser. The nation’s most popular and attractive personality, Deepika truly shines through in the poster alongside the XXX star Vin Diesel and the other actors.

In a candid interview with CNN News 18 in November this year, Diesel (49) had mentioned about the bond that he shares with Bollywood diva and that their chemistry is so natural. He had been all praises for Deepika and said that he believes that she is the next global superstar. When Deepika asked him through a video about the best moment he had with her during the shooting, Diesel mentioned it was the waterfront sequence they shot was his favorite.

While Deepika shared the poster of the movie xXx: Return of Xander Cage marking her Hollywood debut, she is also caught up with the celebration of her blockbuster Bajirao Mastani’s completion of one year.   She took to Twitter to express her excitement and shared it with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and her beau, Ranveer Singh saying “Thank You for giving me one of my most challenging and memorable characters and thank YOU all for the love.”

The film is scheduled to hit the theaters worldwide on January 20, 2017. It also stars Ruby Rose, Donnie Yen, Nina Dobrev, Samuel L Jackson, Tony Jaa and Rory McCann.

Aamir's 'Dangal' Strategies Stay in News For The Right Reasons!

Aamir Mr. Perfectionist That He Is, Dangal yet Another Breakthrough!

Dangal released on December 23rd and Aamir Khan as always stay in the news for the right reasons. The admirers of Aamir and the film fraternity have witnessed from September onwards the gradual progression of his marketing strategies about ‘Dangal’. Aamir took to various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to unveil his muscular looks recently.imgaamir-khan-salman-khan

You may hate him, you may love him, but you can’t ignore the fact the AK is the only one among the celebrated big Khans of Bollywood who actually doesn’t take his audience for granted. Graduating from a lean college student in Rang De Basanti to a 13 pack Aamir in Ghajni to essaying the role of Mahavir Singh Phogat in Dangal, he undergoes a drastic physical transformation. He gained over 25 kilos to fit into the character of a wrestler.Next??He loses those kilos to portray an ageing character. Perfectionist, he truly symbolizes the tag rendered to him.

Aamir takes his movie scripts very seriously, puts his heart & soul into the character and thus he is the Mr.Perfectionist as we all know. ‘Dangal’ is based on the real-life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh and his famous daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat.

The Real Life Mahaveer Singh and His daughters.

Aamir Khan’s master move on Dangal proves how brilliant he is at marketing films. Previously, this year, Aamir already started calling his close friends and showing them the film at his home to receive an honest opinion. This also filtered another purpose. People watching the film later spread the word about how brilliant the film is, and how different it is from Sultan as Salman Khan portrayed the character of a wrestler in the former. Now that’s a fine strategy only a perfectionist can do! Aamir’s friends who had watched the film said that it was nothing like the Salman Khan starrer.

Even Salman Khan tweeted: Love you personally, but hate you professionally!

Aamir learns wrestling

Because “Sultan” was marketed and promoted using Sultan Ali Khan (Salman), Aamir revised his strategies. According to a certain report, “Dangal” star has asked his team to design the publicity campaign in a way that it highlights women empowerment. He surely knows the issues which our country is constantly battling with thus trying to touch the pulse of the people and women through his movie. We adore him for that!

In a nutshell, he wants his onscreen daughters, “Fatima Shaikh”and “Sanya Malhotra” to lead from the front. Unlike what the makers did with “Sultan,” where the focus was on Sultan and his journey. Aamir is currently shooting for a promotional track for “Dangal,” in which he will be introducing the girls.

dangal

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, the film is essentially a biopic on senior Olympics coach Mahavir Singh Phogat. Knowing the cinematic brilliance he has and the body of work he showcases, you can certainly expect another ground-breaking film from him this year. Popular television actress, Sakshi Tanwar made her silver screen debut with this film.

Rihanna Scorches with her Stylish Choices!

Rihanna Makes Her Own Style Statement Everytime She Steps Out!

Whether it’s celebrating the opening of the Fenty Puma pop-up shop at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC or just chilling out casually in NYC with her Margiela pants, Rihanna makes a style statement every time she steps out. She is chic, smart & extremely classy with her choice of dressing.Whether she is one on her way to a rehearsal,an award function,a night club or shopping she defies all fashion rules and the paparazzi can’t stop clicking her!!! She is undoubtedly an era defining artist who’s personality is as infectious as her songs.

Rihanna Knows How To Experiment

Rihanna understands where and how to make a style statement. Whether it’s a Raf Simon’s puffer coat, double denim from Balenciaga, a casual pajama with an off shoulder tee or an asymmetrical dress complimented with a ‘Malono Blahnik’ boots, she carries every dress with poise & elan.

The Girl Has Come a Long Way

rihannarihanna

Rihanna surely ranks high on the celebrity style guide. Her style is equally talked about as her chart busters. Her style is one that we could only dream of emulating. The girl can make anything look good. From cropped tops to that famous cropped ‘do, we chart the good girl gone bad’s style’ evolution. She has surely come a long way. When she was 17, she oozed a funky, urban style in tow.

A 17 year Old Rihanna

In the pre-Umbrella days, it was a wholesome, Island-girl image Rihanna was working on. White jeans, hoop earrings and a tube top were her choice for 2005’s MTV Awards. She’s an intrepid fashion force now, but back in 2005 Rihanna used to play it safe with her simple ponytails, nude make-up and oh-so over, boho-inspired dresses. 2006 saw Rihanna release album ‘Girl Like Me and single SOS,’ which really catapulted her to a big celebrity with her name reckoning with fashion. A new album meant a new look: she began championing a more sophisticated, polished image.

gallery-1473267291-gettyimages-599804430

She had her moments of blips too but today she has definitely stolen our hearts with not only her unique voice and demeanour but her chic style statements all the way! We wish to see Rihanna in more chart busting albums complemented with her ‘oh so’ inspiring style!

Is Stardom Only Through Lead Roles? Nandita Das

Nandita Das Faces The Heat to Find a Star for the Character ‘Shyam’ in her upcoming Film Manto.

The film ‘Manto’ is based on the life of writer “Saadat Hussain Manto”. Nawazzudin Siddique has been zeroed in for the character ‘Manto’. Shyam had been a very close friend of Manto. Shyam had his unique contribution in life history of Saadat Hussain Manto. But Nandita Das says, when she approached established actors of Bollywood for the role of ‘Shyam’, all she got is a ‘no’ for answer.

People are saying no to play the character without even reading the script, nor they are interested to hear about the character. Nandita Das says, the film title may be Saadat Hussain Manto but ‘Manto’ is one character and ‘Shyam’ is another character. I am facing a rejection because people have already conceptualised that ‘Shyam’ is a second lead. It seems, it is derogatory for an established actor to play the second lead.

Shyam, The Actor Friend of Manto                      Saadat Hussain Manto

‘But my expectation was so different”. I thought that today’s young actors will be intrigued to play the distinguished role of Shyam. Nawazzudin is an established character and he is playing the role of Saadat Hussain Manto. But i want to make the character of Shyam no less worth. But a star does not want to invest time in playing the role of Shyam.

nandita dasnandita das

“Sadly Only a Star can ensure a good box office collection’.

Actress Nandita Das made her directorial debut with the film, ‘Firaaq’. She asks if the road to stardom is only through playing the lead characters? What about an important role that is heroic. She says, ‘I feel if i take a star for ‘ Shyam’ i have to tag a ‘guest appearance’ or ‘many thanks to’ to the role of Shyam’. Nevertheless I think I have to approach a newcomer for the role. But the makers have made their mind for a star to cast in that particular role. They want to pull in crowds on the opening day to ensure box office collection. So sadly, only a star can ensure that .

“After spending almost twenty years in the fringes of the film industry i still do not understand what drives the market force. I have always been happy and looked forward to be a part of a story that should be told. I have not seen films as only a career ladder. But i guess I can only think of myself.”

Beyonce Celebrates Christmas With Her Special Lemonade Theme

Beyonce Does a Reindeer And a Lemonade Themed Christmas Tree

We know Beyonce the singer who tries exotic stuffs and is always at the edge with her voice, style and perception. Festivities is just something that Beyonce cannot miss out. She has never been “The Christmas Lady or Christmas Queen” as per se. But that does not mean Beyonce will not come up with her own themes.

Beyonce

Last Sunday she posted pics and videos in her Instagram account showing her fabulous treat to herself for Christmas. Beyonce was seen getting herself up as a reindeer and dancing around her Christmas decorations.

Her New Holiday theme is ‘I Sleigh’ and it’s perfectly aligned with her Christmas theme. Her video is a a merry rendition to her own, ‘Sleigh Balls.’

BeyonceBeyonce

One of her Christmas Tree had a special Bey touch. It’s decorated with a Lemonade theme indulgence. That is a homage to her record breaking album of 2016.

Beyonce 2387361b00000578-0-image-1_1417019946051

The Christmas Tree has lemon ornaments. It has varied sized yellow fruits dispersed across the branches. That signifies her colorful festive holiday collage. There is still a larger tree with green mirrored ball embedded. There is also a small Christmas tree, that has the IVY themed finery as it has ballerina ornaments and shiny orbs aplenty.

I wonder if her fans too want to don up a lemononade theme Christmas bash, as it looks fun and exotic.
