This week, we saw Genelia and Ritesh’s wedding photos on Twitter.com before they became exclusive to any magazine, learnt the formula to make a Madhur Bhandarkar film and, of course, Shirish Kunder showed us how the take it square in the chin. More in this week’s Tweet Diary.
No Secrets For Genelia-Ritesh
Genelia D’souza and Ritesh Deshmukh tied the knot on February 3 after a long courtship. Unlike other stars though, Genelia and Ritesh’s wedding photos hit the internet soon, especially with the groom himself tweeting a pic! Only if other stars stopped making such a hullabaloo of it…
Shirish Kunder Keeps His Sense Of Humour
Shirish Kunder’s bruises and ego over the Slapgate issue may have healed by now, but we have to give it to the filmmaker for keeping his sense of humour intact. As soon as the Shah Rukh Khan-Shirish incident made news, the jokes on Shirish were tweeted by the dozen. Heck, we even carried a piece on that! And sure enough, Shirish didn’t miss them. In fact he even tweeted, “Some of your jokes on the incident were very funny. Including the ones on me. Keep up the humour. I’ll be back soon.”
You have to give it to the man for taking it square in the jaw!
Simplifying Madhur Bhandarkar’s Film Formulas
Madhur Bhandarkar was in the eye of a storm in 2011 when he dropped Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from his film Heroine after the news of her pregnancy. But even before that, Madhur has often been criticized for giving into stereotypes and using an oft-repeated formula for all his films. So when #BhandarkarTemplates began trending on Twitter.com, we had a gala time picking the best of the lot. Here are some of our favourites:
Srijith Nambiar : Film – the story of a director who keeps struggling with one-word title movies and finally ends up in jail #BhandarkarTemplates
Caius Preposterus: BOOM – A day in the life of a religious extremist #BhandarkarTemplates
SLAP – A movie which seamlessly integrates anti-corruption crusades and cheap Bollywood publicity stunts. #BhandarkarTemplates
Darius Mistry: Cricketer: The story of a young fast bowler who threw it all away (see what I did there?) with the lure of spot fixing. #BhandarkarTemplates
SHARAABI KABAABI : #BhandarkarTemplates an innocent cricket team goes to Aus with dreams in eyes comes back misused, raped and without new ads..
Autowallah: BESTSELLER – A movie on how an IIT/IIM graduate sells 300 pages of grammatical errors. *based on a true story* #BhandarkarTemplates
