National Film Awards boycott, Avengers: Infinity War’s Rs 200 crore march, Sonam Kapoor’s wedding invite – Meet the top 5 newsmakers of the week


The week is over and now we would like to tell you how it was. Compared to the last few weeks, we have had relatively better days recently. That’s because, apart from a few biggies, we hardly had anything major to talk about. National Film Awards again created controversy (that’s been a constant since the last few years), Avengers: Infinity War didn’t stop making money in India, Sonam Kapoor‘s wedding created a lot of noise while Twinkle Khanna offended people on Twitter. In between all this, the makers of Veere Di Wedding released the first song, which was quite okay, although the ladies moved pretty stylishly to the beats. Here’s a quick recap of everything that happened last week, just to jog your memory… (Also read: [Photos] Janhvi Kapoor refuses to let go off Boney Kapoor’s hand as they return from the National Film Awards 2018)

#Boycott National Film Awards

National Film Awards courting controversy is old news. But this time it’s of a different kind. All this while, the committee had been pulled up for the selection of winners. This time, however, many of the awardees decided to boycott the event because they were not handed out trophies by the President of India. Only 11 winners received the honour from the President while the rest were handed out by Union Information & Broadcasting Minister, Smriti Irani, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Minister of State, Information & Broadcasting, and Narendra Kumar Sinha, Secretary, Information & Broadcasting. Thus, they decided not to accept the awards. But Boney Kapoor, Janhvi and Khushi’s presence made a lot of news. They received the Best Actress award bestowed on late Sridevi, on her behalf.

#Avengers: Infinity War marches towards Rs 200 crore

Avengers: Infinity War is not content with scaring Bollywood away from an extended weekend. It is now looking to score the highest on the charts. It has already become the Hollywood film with the highest opening day numbers, highest opening weekend numbers and the highest week 1 collections. But the film wants more. Soon it will zoom past the Rs 200 crore mark and Bollywood will have to deal with it.

#Tareefey for Tareefan

Veere Di Wedding got its first song in the form of Tareefan. Sonam and Kareena Kapoor are looking really stylish and hot in the song. Then there are the good looking men to boot as well. Although the song by Badshah is underwhelming, the ladies are rocking it. We wonder if Sonam will dance to the same at her sangeet!

#Sonam Kapoor’s wedding invite

Sonam Kapoor’s wedding invite hit the internet and went viral immediately. The families have kept it simple and chic. In a mint-and-white palette, there is nothing elaborate about the cards. It just tells you when and where the two of them will take their vows. Simple, sweet and completely majestic! May 7-8 will never be the same again.

#Twinkle Khanna auctions Rustom’s uniform and gets threatened

Twinkle Khanna decided to put Akshay Kumar’s costume from Rustom on sale and got mercilessly trolled. Why? Because army uniform is not for sale. A man name Sandeep Ahlawat even threatened her with a bloody nose if she ever dishonours the army. That’s why we had suggested to Twinkle to put up Akshay’s costume from Tu cheez badi hai on sale… No controversy there!
