Why I gave up Sidharth Malhotra for Shubh Mangal Savdhan

From the time Student of the Year released I decided that come what may, I would always ensure that I watched all of Sidharth Malhotra movies. He had almost come to par with Shah Rukh Khan for me (I became his fan from my first time in the theatre - Main Hoon Na). But in the last 2-3 years I've started going for movies based on the story content and not on it's actor. Indian cinema has started to change for the better; or let's say evolve. Scriptwriters are coming up with content which is more relatable. They have started mentioning issues which happens in our society on a daily basis.

In India, whatever you do is invariably not for yourself but for the society. Think of doing something different, and the family will say "samaaj kya sochegi? " or "log kya kahenge" (what will the society think or what will people say?). It's impossible to be happy like this. Even changing your Whatsapp status to My Life, My Rules doesn't work. Hopefully, with the help of media and every marketing agency promoting their movies in such innovative ways, it will give people the courage to do something different; to do what they want without giving a damn about what society thinks. There are 5 movies which I really liked which deal with the crises of many people but have never been reported.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
