Raanbaazaar/ Avrodh S2/ The Morning Show: Webisoda Weekly OTT Update May #4

/ / News, Weekly Update

Welcome back to another edition of Webisoda’s weekly update. The month is coming to an end- the hottest month of the year. Or is it? The months of June and July can be pretty confusing as seasons are in different parts of our country. One can only pray that the sweltering heat reduces and we are exposed to some of that sweet monsoon coolness as soon as possible! 

In the world of entertainment, quite a few developments have risen! First off, the Cannes Film Festival- one of the most prestigious, and exclusive film festivals and award ceremonies in the entertainment industry. Our very own Deepika Padukone was a jury member for the Cannes, and she led the Indian battalion at the festival with style and panache. Other actors from India included Pooja Hegde, Tammannah Bhatia, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Urvashi Rautela, Diipa Khosla, Hina Khan and Cannes veteran Aishwarya Rai herself among others. Rajasthani singer Mame Khan brought to the festival the rawness and beauty of indigenous Rajasthani culture- music and art. Needless to say, Indians represented a beautiful amalgamation of Hollywood meets Bollywood with all the glam in the world! 

Secondly, industry ‘outsiders’ Kartik Aryan and Kangana Ranaut go head to head with their releases of Bhool Bhulaiya 2 and Dhaakad respectively. Reportedly, Aryan wins the race by a large margin as Kangana Ranaut’s action thriller tanked at the box office with very less viewership. Will Kangana accept the fate of her movie or will she blame it on the ‘movie mafia’ as she has before? We’ll be sure to let you know! 

With that out of the way, let us focus on the watchlist for this week!
