With internet getting the world closer and accessible to most, celebrities have built their strong brands thanks to social media. Celebrities take to social media to speak their mind, share light on social issues (sometimes), share fitness and motivational videos, or just go out full power for their film and brand promotions. But not everything on social media ends up positively. Here we share some top stories that celebrities posted on online that backfired.

# Shraddha Kapoor accused of cultural inappropriation

Instagram handle @DietSabya accused the actress of cultural in-appropriation when she posted her picture from Dabboo Ratnani’s 2019 celebrity calendar. In the shot, Shraddha is seen wearing a native-American headgear which holds a lot of significance to the natives both spiritually and traditionally. She has been slammed for this insensitive move, using the headgear as just an accessory. Wonder what the actress has to say about this.

# Esha Gupta trolled for racist comments on Arsenal footballer

Actress and Arsenal club ambassador Esha Gupta was seriously trolled online when she shared her personal chat screenshots on her Insta stories The screenshots showed Gupta making racist comments calling Nigerian footballer Alexander Iwobi a “gorilla”. Esha had a lot to say about Hardik Pandya’s sexist comments on Koffee with Karan, maybe she should start watching herself first. Don’t you think ? “Solves our winger issues. I can’t see that gorilla faced Iwobi running down the flank again. He’s so bad ya,” read the screenshot of her WhatsApp conversation with a friend. To which, Esha replied, “Haha… I don’t know why they don’t bench him more.” However, she did take to Twitter to apologise for her remarks, sharing:

# Sushmita Sen trolled today (January 30) after sharing post on marriage on Instagram

Country’s favourite Sushmita Sen today shared a post about marriage and the internet lost their mind and trolled her instantly. Sushmita posted a quote that read, “Whoever invented marriage was creepy as hell. Like I love you so much I’m gonna get the government involved so you can’t leave.” The trollers clearly didn’t get her humour and hit back at Sen trolling her on her views.

 

One troller wrote, “With government governance or rules it would have been an open jungle for anyone to do whatever he pleases without regard for other people’s feelings or sanity.” Another one commented, “No sush, It’s more than that. It involves bond comments n lasting vows of trust faith n togetherness. This is what marriage is all about. This makes us different from animals who just come together to mate n kinder d progeny. Nature zzz cycle. They lack faith n commitment. Marriage is divine bond which strengthen zz with d birth of a child.”

# Disha Patani trolled for insensitive traditional wear over Diwali

The actress recently posted a Diwali picture while being the face of Calvin Klein India. She paired lehenga bottoms with CK sports bra and the internet went nuts. The Bharat actress was brutally trolled for pairing up her traditional outfit with a sports bra, and it didn’t go down well with the Indian fans. Some fans reacted saying – “What kind of nonsense is this. At least don’t wear such clothes in Diwali,” read a comment while another added: “Don’t advertise your bra at least in Diwali.”

# Priyanka Chopra Jonas trolled for ‘inappropriate’ pictures with PM Narendra Modi

Priyanka Chopra’s meeting with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was quickly overshadowed by her choice of clothes for some reason. Chopra was trolled and called disrespectful for choosing to wear a knee-length dress that showed her legs in her meeting with the PM. It all started when Chopra posted a picture with Mr Modi, thanking him “for taking the time from his packed schedule” to meet her in Berlin. It didn’t take long though, before the “disrespectful” dress became the topic of conversation, with many commenting on how it “insulted” Mr Modi and his “pious followers.”

Priyanka being the unapologetic woman that she is hit back at the trollers with a very smart picture of her and her mother Madhu Chopra in a classy dress showing off their legs. Putting the trollers back in their place. Class act PCJ! Share your comments below!

It was that evening of the year in Melbourne, when the annual awards night marked its gala presence in the cultural melting pot. 2019’s award function at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne was a special one for many reasons. Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy walked away with the top gong of Best Film honour, whereas Vijay Sethupathi won the Best Actor for his widely acclaimed film Tamil film Super Deluxe and Tabu was named Best Actress for her performance in Andhadhun.

Zoya said, “I am so excited. I am not going to forget this evening. This is my first award in the capacity of a producer. Gully Boy was our first production. This is a good start. No one makes a movie alone and this wouldn’t be possible without my producers, my co-writer, my incredible actors and every member of my cast and crew. 54 invincible artists worked on this album. I owe this night to all of them.”

Sriram said on his win as best director, “I am thankful and overwhelmed with the response to Andhadhun and this award. A French short film inspired this movie. It was 7 years ago and the movie took a long time to make.” Upon receiving her award, Tabu said, “It’s my first time in Australia but I will remember it for the rest of my life. Thank you Sriram for writing this for me. This character is catalyst for change of roles for women that are being written and will be written in future. Thank you for trusting me with this character”.

Additionally, IFFM bestowed upon superstar Shah Rukh Khan – the  ‘Excellence In Cinema’ award.

Shah Rukh Khan, in his usual candour, said, “Thank you all of you in Melbourne. It’s an honour and privilege for me. Awards are odd because to me an art form be judged for its quality feels counter intuitive. Art is an expression and cinema is the ability to create emotions and share experiences through stories. To be an actor, is to live to know that each one is a mere illusion. When you are making a movie you can change a lot by changing the angle of the light and it strikes you that life is a lot like that as well. It’s the simple things that can alter your journey and pondering makes your story worth telling. I shot a film here 12 years ago and it was a straightforward film about a man who has lost hope in life picks on a team of girls and then they go on to win a world championship. This city had the simplicity I had seen nowhere else. When you get older like me, you realise things. I realised that film changed my life. It’s not the awards you get, it’s just the part of creating process that is an exhilarating experience for an artiste.”

Here’s a complete list of winners:

  • IFFM Best Short Film: My Name Is Mohamed And Raghad, We Don’t Exist Here Anymore by Ali Mousawi AND Be My Brother by Genevieve Clay
  • IFFM Diversity Award: Onir
  • Telstra People’s Choice Award: Simmba
  • Celebrating 20 years of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: Karan Johar

The subject of triple talaq is not new to Bollywood. Time and again, filmmakers have dealt with this social issue faced by women in the Muslim communities. Here we check out five such films that have explored the topic on screen.

Nikaah

The film was a social comment on the Shariat law of divorce. The film was initially titled Talaq Talaq Talaq, but director BR Chopra had to change the title of the film to Nikaah after one of his friends pointed out that the title will dissuade Muslim families from watching a film that was propagating Talaq (divorce). Chopra changed the title to Nikaah but could not stop people from filing cases against the film.

Starring Raj Babbar, Deepak Parashar and Salma Agha — it was the story of a woman who is married to a man who does not have any time for her — resulting in an altercation that leads to the man spelling out Talaq three times to her.

Phir Ussi Mod Par

Another Muslim social that attempted to talk of the practice of Triple Talaq. It is the story of a woman of substance and fortitude who gets duped in love facing an unjustified ‘Triple Talaq’. She raises her son against all odds only to see him subject her daughter-in-law to the same fate in a most unjustifiable manner. The woman rises to the occasion squarely meeting the daunting challenges of society and clerics to ensure that justice prevails. Directed by Lekh Tandon the film failed to impress at the box office.

Halal

Halal (2016) movie poster

The film deals with the theme of loyalty, love and the institution of marriage that is deemed to be pious by society. It is a story of human emotions, which depicts the trials and tribulations that women in our society go through. The film is about a woman whose husband divorces her so that she does not face the ire of his mother. As per the Muslim customs, the woman has to marry again and divorce the second husband if the first husband wants her back.

Directed by National Award Winner Shivaji Lotan Patil, the movie featured Chinmay Deepak Mandlekar, Priyadarshan Jadhav, Pritam Kagne, Vijay Chavan, Vimal Mhatre, Chhaya Kadam, Amol Kagne and Sanjay Sugaokar.

Code Blue

‘Code Blue’ refers to the life-saving emergency code and in this movie it revolves around this girl, whose story is inspired by a real-life incident. The protagonist is pushed to the limits by society’s malpractices and how she comes back and fights those evils, is what Code Blue is all about. The battle of a girl from a dead-end! Made in association with Rahat Kazmi Films, the film features Alok Nath, Rishi Bhutani, Sushmita Mukerji and Khan in lead roles.

Khan wants to use the medium of movies to bring to light the lives of women who find their lives shattered with this instant divorce practice. She says, she felt traumatised when she encountered cases of women having to endure the mistreatment and misuse of the oral talaq system.
