Bollywood maybe the most thriving film industry in the world but the truth cannot be denied that they often get a little more than just inspired by Hollywood movies. There have been times when their movies have been complete rip offs of famous Hollywood flicks. Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy all set to release next month is another example of perhaps accidental resemblance (ahem ahem!) to a Hollywood flick starring rap star Eminem – 8 Mile.

Ever since the trailer surfaced, people have been talking about this movie and its striking resemblance to Eminem’s movie ‘8 Mile’ that charts his own journey in the music industry and ups and downs in life. There were many scenes that gave us serious Eminem vibes and you’ve definitely not been paying attention if the song ‘Apna Time Aayega’ doesn’t remind you of ‘Lose Yourself’ by Eminem and the rap battle scenes. NOT A COINCIDENCE!

It’s not just us though, there are others who saw the similarities and a number of memes/mashups sprouted on the internet.

Cast of the movie includes Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin and other notable names from Bollywood. While Ranveer’s cinematic presence makes us look forward to his individual performance, but at the same time it begs the question: Has Bollywood ran out of ideas and whatever happened to originality?

Just when you think the biggest Indian weddings are now over, in comes another event. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas hosted their Mumbai reception for Bollywood recently even though they tied the knot right in the beginning of December. All the glitz and glamour aside, what really stayed with us through this whole thing were the hilarious tweets regarding all three weddings of the year. You already know which ones we’re referring to, right?

The following tweets are our personal favourites:

1. This hilarious dig at Salman Khan being a background dancer at the #AmbaniWedding

Because let’s face it, if you’re rich then even Salman Khan will let you have the stage.

Will Koffee With Karan’s Season Finale Be It’s Saving Grace? https://htv.com.pk/lifestyle/koffee-with-karan-season-finale Fri, 21 Dec 2018 09:58:34 +0000 https://htv.com.pk/?p=41921

Promising fans the beginning of season 6 of his talk show with major ‘Girl Power’, Koffee with Karan didn’t quite live up to our expectations with the conversation between Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt mostly revolving around men and their dating stories. However, the season finale is bringing yet another power-packed female duo, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Kareena Kapoor Khan together on the couch.

This particular episode would be interesting to watch because the two stars were reportedly not on good terms since they did a movie together. The two co-starred in 2004 film Aitraaz, made seemingly controversial comments about each other on Karan Johar’s show in the previous season. In 2010, Kareena appeared on the show with her better half, Saif Ali Khan and while talking about Priyanka, she said, “Where does she get that accent from?”

Two episodes later, Priyanka sat on the Koffee couch with Shahid Kapoor (Kareena’s ex-boyfriend) and when Karan Johar told her about Kareena’s comment, she replied: “The same place where her boyfriend gets it from.”

But Kareena’s comments about Priyanka were much warmer in last season of Koffee With Karan where she credited her Don co-star for representing India on a global platform like never before. The two have been all praises for each other off late and have been trying to turn over a new leaf.

Most of all, we would want to see two powerful and talented women come together and represent women in a positive light. Without a doubt, we’ll be cheering for both if the conversation goes beyond just the superficialities and their love affairs. The world definitely needs something more…

Are you just as excited as we are to watch the season finale? Let us know in comments.

Everybody knows by now that Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra and Jonas brother, Nick, are tying the knot by the end of November, very closely following the DeepVeer wedding. We at HTV Taste, have been wondering what their wedding menu will be like, considering the cultural differences and of course, the glam factor.

Everybody knows by now that Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra and Jonas brother, Nick, are tying the knot by the end of November, very closely following the DeepVeer wedding. We at HTV Taste, have been wondering what their wedding menu will be like, considering the cultural differences and of course, the glam factor.

So, here’s what we know about the couple and the wedding so far

Priyanka’s bachelorette party in Amsterdam
  • The wedding festivities will take place from the 30th of November to the 2nd of December
  • The wedding will take place in Rajasthan’s Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel- which is a stunning real-life palace
  • Pre-wedding events, including the sangeet, will take place at Mehrangarh Fort
  • A wedding reception will take place after the festivities
  • Both the faiths will be honored in terms of the type of ceremony that will take place
Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur- The wedding venue
  • Bollywood celebrities are reportedly not invited to the wedding! #Prick want to keep it intimate with close family and friends
  • Her wedding lehnga is most likely going to be by Sabyasachi Mukherjee *insert emoji with hearts for eyes*
  • Priyanka’s uber cool bachelorette just took place in Amsterdam
  • Priyanka Chopra is quite the foodie so her menu should be spectacular
  • Nick Jonas also loves food but watches what he eats considering he has Type 1 Diabetes

So let’s get on with it

What we think could be on Nick and Priyanka’s wedding menu

Since the traditional ceremony takes place around noon, the menu will be for lunch.

  • Since Priyanka is known to love herself a paratha with butter, she might decide to include the ever popular makkai ki roti with butter saag
  • Nick apparently enjoys Punjabi cuisine, so an appearance by butter chicken is likely
  • Rumors are making rounds that Priyanka will keep her menu predominantly Punjabi, think daal makhni and tandoor dishes
  • She might take a page out of Shahid Kapoor’s book and cater to two cuisines instead of one; Thai perhaps?
  • Is it even a wedding if there isn’t chicken biryani on the menu?
  • Live stations are all the rage across the border too it seems. Live street food is always a hit; think masala dosa, bun kabab and gol gappay

Dessert!

The stunning engagement cake- and the couple, of course

Priyanka Chopra is known to have a sweet tooth so it shouldn’t be surprising if there is a wide variety of sweets at the dessert table.

  • She has mentioned her love for Jalebi, and we think it’s perfect for the slightly cool weather
  • Mithai, halwa or rabri should make an appearance
  • Can’t forget the cake! Priyanka has professed her love for Red Velvet and since it is such a classic wedding cake flavor, she might just opt for it.

Whatever they ultimately decide to have on their menu, it is bound to be just perfect. We can’t wait to see if any of our predictions make it to the actual menu- it’s the closest we’re ever getting to actually attending the event.
