Hello and welcome to Webisoda’s Weekly Update. The world of entertainment has been blowing up giving us a lot to discuss! So let’s get right into it!
To begin with, let us talk about Bollywood star Ranveer Singh’s nude photoshoot for Paper Magazine. While most of the industry lauded the actor for his boldness and risque attitude for participating in a shoot like this, an NGO filed a case against the Ram Leela star for ‘hurting the sentiments of women across the country’. It even became a topic of heated national debate. Ranveer Singh has always been bold about his dressing choices or lack of which in this case! But has the actor crossed his limits with this shoot? What do you think?
In other news, Karan Malhotra’s Ranbir Kapoor starrer Shamshera has faced enormous losses at the box office. The audience did not find the story coherent, and Sanjay Dutt has been typecast as the big evil villain whose menacing look and actions make his enemies cower in their shoes. While all the actors have done their job admirably, their individual performances still don’t make up for the plot holes in the movie’s story. One excellent highlight is the album of the movie which is soulful and beautiful.
