In the next frame, Shahrukh plants a cheeky kiss on Salman’s cheek. SRK released a second teaser for his upcoming film, the Anand L. Rai-directed Zero, in time for Eid. A jittery little person (Shahrukh) walks towards the stage at a dance competition—but Salman comes and fortifies him before they bust out some moves. Groovy. Do we still say groovy?
Say what you will about that slasher smile, but it has character—which can’t be said for its stoical sucessor. A much-lampooned yet popular bust of Cristiano Ronaldo at Madeira airport has been replaced.
Candid delight from Kangana Ranaut as she enjoys some shopping time in London. She’s there shooting for a picture in which she will be starring opposite Rajkummar Rao. It’s called Mental Hai Kya—a bit harsh, perhaps, if it’s asking about Brexit.

But are those glasses transparent?
Just educating a fellow citizen not to litter the streets, one may say in defence. But a star couple stopping the litterer, chiding him and taking a video for the purpose of shaming on social media? ‘Virushka’, as the paparazzi christened them months ago, probably didn’t realise that tweets and posts can bounce back.
No fault of their own really, if Karan Johar decided to take the nuanced and powerful Marathi film Sairat and throw in the obligatory glitz and glam of Bolllywood for a remake. The launch vehicle of Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor, already a social media celeb, and Ishaan Khattar will be called Dhadak. Sairat brought into the national spotlight two unknown young actors, here’s hoping Dhadak doesn’t dim the light over these two young’uns.
The Central African Republic issued a statement clarifying that Boris Becker’s diplomatic passport is invalid.
