Fame That Barely Lasted


Taher Shah – Eye To Eye

Eye-to-eye is a song and music video written and produced by and starring Pakistani singer and song-writer Taher Shah. The music video features Taher Shah, with his long curly hair locks, dressed in a white suit with matching white shoes, in a white background with white furniture, where he sings along to the music. Shah was sarcastically described as a “musical genius” in a tongue-in-cheek article in a Pakistani newspaper. Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan dedicated the song to fellow actor Ranveer Singh on the latter’s birthday in July 2015, posting a comment on twitter: “One day I want you to outdo this!”. Ranveer accepted the challenge and put up a 10-second Dubsmash clip, syncing the song in Taher Shah getup. The clip garnered over 1.9 million views in just two days

The Dilwale Effect

We all know about the hype that was created when the movie promo was released and how excited everyone was to watch the movie. Bit eventually, after 1 week of it’s release the hype died out. The evident reasons for these maybe; Some tiny flaws in story which make no sense but its Bollywood! Over the board intense scenes between SRK-Kajol when he confronts her during the end of the movie. Slightly dragged climax scenes. Predictable story Old wine in new bottle! A known story revamped with SRK-Kajol! Not that great comedy which would make your stomach hurt!

“Bigg Boss 9” contestants Prince Narula and Yuvika Chaudhary came pretty close to being an item when the viewers voted the latter out of the high-voltage reality show.

While Yuvika was close to convinced and yet tagged him as a ‘sweet friend’, the audience branded their story as fake. However, the evicted contestant said the feelings Prince harbours for her may be genuine.The twitter reactions to this confused relationship are hilarious, and many are calling it a ploy or a strategy to survive the game. However, the hype of this relationship died oit as soon as it started.
