The Good, Bad, Ugly Of Last Week: Thugs Of Hindostan, Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Isha Ambani, Karan Johar, Akshara Haasan

1. Thugs Of Hindostan (BAD): 

This Yash Raj film starring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan in principal roles was a washout. While the production house danced in the aisles at the end of Day 1 because they had raised Rs 52 odd crore, the movie crashed into the sea on Day 2 itself. It was a complete pilot error; the film's director Vijay Krishna Acharya should stop calling himself Victor. We were thugged. Several theatres cancelled shows on Day 2 itself due to scant occupancy and by Monday, Thugs of Hindostan had been replaced by Badhaai Ho, Baazaar and First Man.

2.  Akshara Haasan (UGLY): 

Kamal Haasan's daughter Akshara's personal pictures leaked on the Internet and her ex-boyfriend Rati Agnihotri's son Tanuj Virwani spoke to us EXCLUSIVELY saying that Akshara had sent him those bold snaps in their courtship days and they were for his eyes only. He had not leaked them, he added.

3. Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh (GOOD):

While stories continued to buzz in our ears that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's love will not culminate in marriage- they have broken up, he loves her more than she does and what not. But the lovely couple killed all loose talk by becoming man and wife on Children's Day, November 14.

3. Bigg Boss 12 (BAD): 


The show is not on anybody's lips. So much so that Colors (Broadcaster) had to reinduct Anup Jalota for a while (indicates paucity of ideas), mind you the 60-plus Bhajan Samrat had to rewind on his relationship with Jasleen Matharu and went on to declare that he has no romantic feelings for her. It's juicy to read such things, but it's not translating into TRPs.

4. Sara Ali Khan (GOOD): 

So far so good. We saw Nawab of Pataudi and Amrita Singh's daughter break her silence and emerge out to speak up on various matters, while publicising her upcoming film Kedarnath. Acting runs in her genes and she has lived up to this age-old saying of Bollywood, they say. Let's hope What They Say Is What They Mean.

5. Chahatt Khanna (UGLY):  

Our heart bled for Chahatt if she has said the truth to Bombay Times about her husband Farhan being such a torturous man. Horrendous is the word, not ugly. Imagine her husband enslaving her into a sexual, violent, abusive relationship. The lady has freed herself. We wonder why it isn't a case of #MeToo.

6. Preity Zinta (GOOD): 

Met up with this bubbly actress and she hasn't changed a wee bit. We spoke on varied topics and shall bring them to you soon. She was looking a million bucks, and she told me that she is nose-diving back into acting like never before. We love comebacks because we love challenges. Come on Preity, you can do it!

7. Govinda (BAD): 

The star's film Rangeela Raja (supposed to release on Nov 16) is giving him sleepless nights. It would have been put to test the entire last week if the Censors hadn't poked their nose. We bet he's having sleepless nights, his last film FryDay a nice entertainer failed because of lack of proper release.

8. Isha Ambani (GOOD): 

Mukesh and Nita Ambani's daughter Isha is all set to tie the knot with Anand Piramal on December 12, this year. With less than a month to go for the big day, the first picture from the shaadi ka ghar came out and we know that the preparations have begun in full swing. The celebrations kickstarted with a dandiya raas. Isha looked stunning in a multi-hued Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla couture lehenga that had intricate mirror and thread work. Nita Ambani also sported an equally colourful ensemble that had mirror work and a lattice of floral embroidery on it. 

9. Karan Johar (GOOD): 

This was something more than just good. KJo met up with Ajay Devgn and said 'Let bygones be bygones'. It was the most sensible thing to do after Kajol and he got started talking again. The trio then celebrated their reunion by shooting an episode of Koffee With Karan for the on-going Season 6. 

10. Nafisa Ali (UGLY): 


Ugly to the core it is, first the Big C attacked Irrfan Khan and then Sonali Bendre. What's wrong with the Big C this year? Now Nafisa, who has been seen in films such as Major Saab and Life…In A Metro, has been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. She took to social media to reveal the heartbreaking news.

See you next Monday for yet another Good, Bad, Ugly. Till then...
