There isn’t a single day when Bollywood fans don’t have something to gossip about. Well, we aren’t complaining because that’s what makes it an eventful place to be in! Take a look at some of the top newsmakers of the year -
SRK’s new baby – AbRam
AbRam is the newest addition to Shah Rukh Khan’s family. The couple had a baby through surrogacy this year. A doting father, SRK now has a third child to talk about! The youngest Khan is said to have dimples too and papa Shah Rukh says that he sees the “next SRK” in his son, AbRam. Looks like he already has grand plans in store for his son!
Salman Khan’s first on Koffee with Karan
Salman Khan made his first appearance on Koffee with Karan this year - something he should have done long back! He was a rockstar on the show and we loved every minute of his interview. From the naughty talks to the shocking exposés – this episode had everyone glued on. One hour wasn’t enough with the star! We want more!
The Khans hug it out
Shah Rukh and Salman went without speaking to each other for 5 years and then one fine day out of the blue, the unexpected happened - they hugged each other at an Iftaar party! Suddenly the major happenings in the world took a back seat and all that was spoken about was the “famous” hug between them. After the hug we can almost imagine Rakhee saying “Main na kehti thi, mere Karan Arjun aayenge!”
Priyanka Chopra goes international
2013 might not have been one of the best years for Priyanka Chopra as far as Bollywood is concerned but it sure saw her making her mark internationally. It started with her single In My City ranking high on most of the music charts. She was also seen shaking a leg with Pitbull. Moreover, PC has also been signed as the global brand ambassador of Guess! More power to her!
Deepika & Ranveer: Are they or are they not?
Are they dating or are they not – the couple has got everyone asking this question! They look so great together and if you ask us, we almost miss seeing them together now that Ram Leela promotions are over. They sizzle on and off the screen and are a delight to watch! If they’re not dating, we really wonder what they’re waiting for!
Ranbir & Katrina snapped at Ibiza
“We’re going to Ibiza!” should be the alleged couple’s song of the year. Ranbir and Katrina were snapped holidaying at Ibiza by a perky fan. Little did the couple know that they wouldn’t even be able to holiday in peace there! Soon there were pictures of the two getting cozy and then what followed was Katrina’s long letter to the media saying she’s “upset and distressed”. What can we say? That’s the price you pay for being a celebrity Katrina!
Hrithik & Suzanne Roshan part ways?
It’s tragic but there are way too many rumours of Hrithik & Suzanne Roshan parting ways. First we hear about Suzanne moving in with her parents and then there are talks of her being unhappy with her in-laws. We no longer see the lovely couple making appearances together nowadays and how much ever we wish to overlook these rumours, one can’t deny that there is something amiss this time!
Bigg Boss house drama
Like every year there is always one contestant who threatens to leave the Bigg Boss house. This year it was Kushal Tandon who threw a fit and refused to adhere to any of the orders. From picking up a fight with Tanisha Mukerji to almost strangling Andy, this one was royally kicked out of the Bigg Boss house and along with him he took his lady love Gauhar Khan! What’s funny is that after all this drama, the two are back again in the show!
Sanjay Dutt gets arrested
Sanjay Dutt’s world turned upside down this year when his past came back to haunt him. The actor was recently sent back to jail to serve a 3.5 year sentence for possessing illegal arms in a case related to the 1993 Mumbai blasts. The media witnessed an emotional Sanjay Dutt while he left for jail leaving his wife and children behind.
No Oscars for The Lunchbox
The jury choose The Good Road over The Lunchbox as India’s official entry for the Oscars this year leaving everyone disappointed. They were upset that in spite of The Lunchbox getting worldwide acclaim from audiences all over, the movie didn’t get nominated. The jury justified their selection saying that the movie had an “India that you don’t see very often in films”. Ho-hum!
Jiah Khan commits suicide
25 year old Jiah Khan’s suicide this year left everyone in Bollywood shocked. The actress hanged herself at her Juhu residence one night and what followed were days and days of interrogation. Her mother revealed a six page note left behind by Jiah where she wrote about being harassed and mentally tortured. As all evidences pointed at her boyfriend, Suraj Pancholi, he was arrested and booked on the charge of abetment to suicide. Recently, forensic reports confirmed that the actress was drunk when she committed suicide. A failed relationship or a dying career – looks like the reason behind her death will forever be left unanswered.
Which one took you by surprise?
