No Mog at Vogue!

‘Tis a curious case of the green eye. Although the bhabi was born with it, the nanad (also, an anagram for Nanda, get it?!!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) flashes it more often! 😜

December 26, 2010 saw the insecurity of a daughter unfold towards a daughter-in-law on national TV. Seven years hence, status quo seems maintained!

Recently, Vogue erroneously accommodatedΒ Navya Naveli Nanda in a frame that should have ideally been reserved for only ‘The Bachchan Women’! 😳😳😳 Nandu… oops! Nanda surname gaya tel lene!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Purely by the strength of her illustrious maiden name, which she has hung on to rather assiduously, Shweta qualified for the photo op. And the same phenomenon, in reverse, must have done Ash in. But if there’s anyone who absolutely deserved to be clicked, it was lil Aaradhya. She certainly has more claim on the Bachchan name than Navya! Why wasn’t she in the pic then? Oh, I forgot! Like always, she’d need mommy dearest to carry her!!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Isliye Rai aur cutiePie dono ko bol diya Tata Bye Bye!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Looking closely, the First Family of Bollywood appears to suffer from the same malaise crippling every other nondescript family in the world. An envious daughter who spites the daughter-in-law for taking her place in the family is such a Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki! She who will sway her mother’s thoughts and father’s emotions so as to never let them wholeheartedly accept and wholly include the new entrant, thereby leaving the hapless soul to fend for herself as an outsider all her life. Subtle taanas to explosive tamaashas, they ARE the norm in families with mixed-gender rather than same-sex siblings. Husbands of two sisters/ wives of two brothers share a better camaraderie than a bhabi and nanad. Had Abhishek a brother or Shweta a sister, the Bachchans would never have to contend with such an embarrassing spread. Goes to prove that naari hi doosri naari pe padti hai bhaari!😏

Karma Deductions

July 15, 2017 is a date sure to go down in the annals of cinematic history.

Very rarely do you see pedigree shame itself. Three successful men, with roots in the industry deeper than those of that ancient banyan tree in your courtyard, made bumbling fools of themselves by proudly defending nepotism of all things in the world! 😳😳😳😷😷😷😷That too on national TV!!! 😱😱😱 Life truly imitated art, for indeed, we saw 3 Idiots for real on that day!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Nepotism and its cousin, the infamous Casting Couch,.. remind me so much of Lord Voldemort! πŸ‘½ They who must never be named!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

On and off, several small-time starlets have summoned a mustard-seed-of-courage to speak up against these twin evils sullying the industry since its inception. We never did hear from them again. Their careers were finished before they could even begin!

And then came a woman with balls bigger than those of all the men collectively in Bollywood. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The Queen Bee..tch .. Β is what these sissies call her behind her back! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

She hit a towering sixer when she asked the Sixer of Bollyland [Hrithik, who else πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚] to not hide behind his father but to deal with her directly in the open as he used to clandestinely deal with her behind closed doors in the past! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

She then locked horns with the frivolous KJo who we have been JLoing like his Hollywood counterpart. The cherry on the icing is that she did it on his own chat show!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

She called him out for ridiculing her accent when she was a struggler much to her co-guest, Saif Ali Khan’s discomfort. As if that wasn’t enough to set their mouths wide open, she left them with their jaws burrowed deep in their chest when she accused Johar (and rightly so) of being a “Snooty Flag Bearer of Nepotism” and a “Movie Mafia” of sorts. Her candor was so refreshing especially since half of the season could best be described as a diplomatic saga.

Kangana’s a smart woman because she chose to wait for the right time to fight these bullies. When she’s at the top of her game without fear of being silenced like the not-so-fortunate newbies. When she’s so secure in her space that she refuses to worship the ground the movers and shakers of the film fraternity walk on. When nobody can topple her off the pinnacle because even if you consider all of them together, collectively they don’t possess even an iota of her talent!

I never was a huge fan of Kangana in her early days of acting. She cloned herself in every other release so much so that I couldn’t tell a Gangster apart from Woh Lamhe or even a Fashion.

And then came Once Upon A Time… and I was hooked onto the fabulous success story she single-handedly penned in this male-dominated world she was born to rule over.

I used to admire her bravado for lashing out against the cowards who doused her sister with acid but it was only earlier this year that I fell in love with her simplicity when she appeared on the Kapil Sharma Show with Shahid and laughed her guts out at Gutthi’s adorable antics.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ She laughed without restrain…without any fear of her mascara smudging or her foundation caking. She laughed like a child…not like how a woman is conditioned by society to laugh.

And now I respect her because she spat out her grudges to the person who’d wronged her to his face and didn’t indulge in malicious gossip behind his back. She wasn’t overly sweet to him neither was she vindictive but she’d cleared the air between them and had KJo been mature about the whole thing, Dharma was sure to spring a blockbuster in the near future with the Queen, no less, at the helm.

But the man-baby had to cry on every shoulder he found. In London, whilst speaking to Anupama Chopra, the presumptuous old fart embarrassed himself by revealing that he was surprised Kangana even knew the meaning of Flag Bearer of Nepotism!!! 😎

Kangana herself had mentioned it to him that Anupama’s husband is her biggest well-wisher in the industry. Either KJo intended for the spite to reach Kangs’ ears loud and clear or he’s as dumb as the films he conceives to want to bare his bleeding heart to someone who clearly belongs in Camp Kangana!

Be as it may, he dug his own grave at the IIFA by dissing her when she wasn’t even around to defend herself. How cowardly! I’ve never doubted him being a sissy but the machismo Saif and Varun exude on screen has to be a sham! 😜Kangana has had no issue with both hitherto so their ass-kissing stunt, just to score a few brownie points from Johar, speaks volumes about their gentlemanly facade. Good thing that they aren’t gonna forget the dreadful taste of their feet in their mouth anytime soon!😎

Not sure about the fate of Dharma Productions, but Karma deductions for distasteful behaviour happened in full swing on that day!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

 

Strangers don’t always spell Danger

From childhood, like most, I’ve been conditioned to believe strangers are up to no good and I’d be better off not having to do anything with them.
While there is sufficient wisdom backing the teachings of our elders, life (who I think is the greatest teacher of them all) has actually shattered such preconceived notions and has demonstrated time and again that sometimes you do need that rank stranger to bring about a world of good in your life.

In my experience, the PARIVAAR, easily the most overrated of social units thanks to KJo :roll:, is especially accomplished at subjecting the black sheep from among them to repeated VAARS πŸ˜€ And that triggers off deadly WARS πŸ˜†

You have to constantly act adequately obligated and overtly subservient. Family, rather selfishly, craves undivided attention and demands adulation 24/7. You can’t afford to ever lower your guard since you don’t really want to risk the possibility of an explosive expose being thrown in your face when you least expect it to. Family normally (and unfortunately) knows exactly behind which doors those skeletons of yours lurk and they don’t need to be asked twice to unleash them!

With strangers, such uneasiness never creeps into the picture as you’re exempt from carrying all your excess baggage into the frame. You receive, you thank, you return. No strings attached.

Brand-new acquaintances often make better life preservers than the age-old relations you think you can bank upon. This I can vouch for with my life since the former have no ‘goody good’ image to uphold and nothing to gain by going out of their way to do a good deed. They do so without any compulsion and it comes straight from the heart, without feeling burdened and thinking of it as an obligatory duty.

No man can live as an island nor can he journey alone. Since you obviously need the company to sail on that turbulent ship called life, better forge friendships with people outside your comfort zone. Not for nothing is variety said to be the spice of life.
