Dear all, Sushant Singh Rajput reacted in a humane manner. Cut him some slack, will you?

Sushant Singh Rajput

In Agatha Christie’s ‘Curtain’, which was famed fictional detective Hercule Poirot’s last case, the sleuth encounters an antagonist who never does anything by his own hands. Instead, he plays with minds and words, which induces a third party to commit a crime and confess about the same. Of course, there was no way the person could have been punished for playing with minds.

You must be wondering why I started the article with this reference. When the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘rude’ behaviour, along with a video to support the same, started doing rounds, I paused, and watched it. Did I find him rude? No, I did not. Did I find the questions thrown in his face forcing his demeanour to be tough? Yes, I did. Because this is not the first time stars have been sweetly coerced into commenting upon a sensational topic, but this certainly is the first time a film star spoke on same and condemned it. However, what is bothersome is that he is being panned for the same, being criticised for simply not speaking about something he was not well-versed with and was not in sync with the situation too. Though the example quoted above is a tad too extreme, this one fits the bill.

Multiple times, words are put into the mouth of the actors, and then those are reported with the quintessential masala, regardless of the consequences. So, can we really be cross with Sushant and Kriti for not wanting to comment on a politically delicate situation? It is their choice, right?

In the trailer launch of Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘Raabta’, a question was asked about the on-going fervour over Indian RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav, who has been sentenced to death in Pakistan. While Kriti chose to evade the question politely, someone from the journalist fraternity chose to pursue the same and tried to reprimand Kriti over stopping the director from answering the question.

This is where Sushant Singh Rajput stepped in and started to explain the situation. Sushant was quite polite when he said that a public figure is not bound to speak on everything, and that it is a matter of choice. Further, he also said that one should not speak if one feels that the knowledge that he or she has is not enough to speak on the matter. Quite fair, isn’t it? But when you watch the video carefully, you do notice that the actor is being interrupted frequently, and hence, he became quite stern, by the end of it.

Any human would react the same way, don’t you think? Then why do we expect our stars to deal with everything in a calm manner, to be a saint, even when they are being pinched and prodded. What you sow is what you shall reap. So why make a hue and cry when Sushant reacted?

There is a fine line between intrusion and interrogation. Both the parties on the either side of the mic are humane, and we, whether journalists or stars, should realise its limitations and understand the reactions without jumping the guns. Sushant reacted in a humane way, like anyone would, on constant interruptions, when he or she is trying to explain their stance on a matter. Cut him some slack, will you?

Dear Priyanka, it’s high time you starred in a Bollywood Film…

Dear Priyanka,

January 25, 2018, I went to a theatre to watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’. It was a first day, first show. I was keen to see what the director had to offer, after ‘Bajirao Mastani’.

Well, I was quite impressed with ‘Padmaavat’ thanks to the spectacular vision of SLB. Even the actors left a mark. While Ranveer Singh’s Khilji act was outstanding, Deepika Padukone looked stunning as Rani Padmavati and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh impressed us. However, I felt there was something missing in the film, an ‘X – Factor’ that was there in ‘Bajirao Mastani’, but not in ‘Padmaavat’. I couldn’t put things together as what was that one thing missing in ‘Padmaavat’.

Finally, after wracking my brains and heart for a few days, a box office comparison article on ‘Padmaavat’ VS ‘Bajirao Mastani’ finally gave me the answer I was looking for. It was you, Priyanka Chopra. The ‘X-factor’ in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was missing from the magnum opus and now a Rs 250 crore plus profitable film ‘Padmaavat’. The subtle yet a powerful performance that you gave in ‘Bajirao Mastani’.

I then literally went and checked out other dialogue promos of ‘Bajirao Mastani’ that featured you, and understood that not just ‘Padmaavat’, an ‘X – Factor’ from Bollywood has been missing. Bollywood is missing Priyanka Chopra, who is not just a pretty face, but a performer who can make us sit back and notice her.

Your last Bollywood movie was a 2016 release ‘Jai Gangaajal’. Though you were excellent in the film, your ‘Bajirao Mastani’ performance overpowers every other last release of yours.

There’s no doubt that Priyanka, you are making India proud internationally with the ‘Quantico’ series and three Hollywood films in your kitty, but Bollywood needs you too. Its been more than two years, that your fans are waiting for you to announce your next Bollywood film. We have heard a lot about the films you might take up, SLB’s ‘Gustakhiyan’, Kalpana Chawla biopic, Rakesh Sharma biopic and ‘Fanney Khan’. However, till date, none have been announced as your next Bollywood project.

Priyanka, it’s definitely high time that you come back to Bollywood, not just for your fans but for Bollywood. I am not saying that Bollywood can’t work without Priyanka and movies won’t be made. But, then the silver screen is missing a performer like you.

After all, as your songs goes, “Dekhi lakh lakh pardesi girl, Ain’t nobody like my DESI GIRL.”

A guy who misses you on big screen

Alia's 'hike' affair, Ranbir's 'Dilli Wali Girlfriend' and endless rebound reports. Justified?

It has been confirmed that one of Bollywood’s cutest couples, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra have parted ways. Breakups are always hard, be it a celeb or a commoner; but looks like it is harder for stars as rumours always find a way to rub salt into their wounds.

Just few days back, Alia was being linked to her ‘Brahmastra’ co-star Ranbir Kapoor, over a comment made by Manish Malhotra on Neha Dhupia‘s Vogue BFFs, and now, according to some reports, Alia is getting close to Hike messenger founder Kavin Mittal. And the base for these reports seem as baseless as the reports that were going rounds regarding Ranbir’s affiliation with a Delhi-based girl, if you remember.

Alia and Kavin met at the World Economic Forum in 2017, and since then have been good friends. In fact, even the sources of such reports have confirmed just the friendship, but have gone on to add that friendship can evolve into something else, you never know.

Sometimes, it's nice just to do nothing #kashmir #roadtrip

Well, that’s just a very absurd prediction to make. What a relationship evolves into or not, is something totally based on probabilities and circumstances. And unless there is any incident to prove that something is brewing between two people, how can anyone go on to speculate that two people are dating, or even can date. Can they just not be friends?

This does take us back to the time when Ranbir Kapoor had broken up with Katrina Kaif, and soon after, reports of him dating a Delhi-based girl has surfaced. Of course, those were busted soon after, when it came to foray that she was just a fan who requested for a selfie. Unnecessary negative publicity for both of them.

Makes one wonder, as to where does the fine line between truth and speculation blur, so as to give birth to blatant lies. They say there is no fire without spark, but what’s the status of statements that have been created out of thin air, pushed out of context, with feelings and logics thrown out of the window? Something to ponder about.
