One could call it sixth sense, but this tweet by Amitabh Bachchan seem like an eerie forecast of what Bollywood was about to witness.
@SrBachchan T 2625 – न जाने क्यूँ , एक अजीब सी घबराहट हो रही है !!
In the next 58 minutes of Amitabh’s tweet, what was feared was confirmed, Bollywood had lost a supernova. India had lost an actor par excellence… Sridevi.
@Filmfare Breaking news! Bollywood legend @SrideviBKapoor passes away. https://t.co/JisxQ0hBgZ
The 54 year old actress began her journey as a child star at the age of 4 and leaves behind her husband Producer Boney Kapoor & daughters Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor. The actress was at Ras Al Khaimah in United Arab Emirates to attend a wedding when she passed away. While the timeline of her final hours are unknown, many sources close to Kapoor family reveal that she may have died following a cardiac arrest. The actress was in the Emirates to attend the wedding of her nephew Mohit Marwah to stylist Antara Motiwala. The actress who is active on social media had posted several photos of the the wedding online. Actress was at her graceful best & looked hale and hearty in the photos, making several wonder if this death was natural or if there was something more.
What really happened ?
Sridevi was at a hotel when she fainted inside the bathroom. It is also unclear as to who found Sridevi unconscious in the bathroom. Reports further reveal that the paramedics rushed Sridevi to the hospital, however she was already dead. Cardiac Arrest is rarely seen in women, but these days post menopausal women are prone to cardiac arrest. Secondly many reports have emerged that Sridevi may have been alone at the time of her death. Boney and daughter Khushi had returned to Mumbai on February 22. However there is no clarity if they flew back to UAE or if they were in Mumbai that day.
No postmortem request?
The authorities at Dubai refused to handover the body without a post-mortem making several wonder if a request was made to repatriate the body without a post mortem. Sridevi’s death of a celebrity ‘fainting in a toilet’ only to be declared dead later is similar to several other Hollywood stars who passed away following an overdose of drugs. Well the preliminary post-mortem report could be out in the near future and hopefully it resolves the mysterious death of the 80s heart-throb.
Sorry ladies, time to grab those tissues, because Prince Harry is taken! Yes and this time it’s official!

Prince Harry is all set to walk the aisle with television star Meghan Markle. The announcement was made on Twitter by his father Prince of Wales Charles.
The announcement says the couple had been engaged earlier this month (November 2017) and would marry in spring 2018.
Changing Times for Royals:
Just like his older brother, Prince William, Harry is not marrying an aristocrat. He is marrying a commoner too, but this marriage is unique in more ways. Meghan is not just a commoner. She is a US citizen who was previously married but divorced after 2 years of marriage. She is half-black, also making her the first person of colour to join the royal family. While the world is rooting for Meghan, Brits are not so excited over this as they think Meghan is too ‘over exposed’ due to her stint as an actress and doubt if this marriage would last. Prince Harry has had a long list of girlfriends and was known as a wild party child. His commitment phobia haunted his exes. But either way the couple are expected to breathe of fresh air into the losing charm of the Royals. People are bored of plain- jane Kate and hopefully Meghan will spice things up for the Clarence House!

Rishi Kapoor Slams Rahul Gandhi
A day after Rahul Gandhi claimed that India was run by dynasts, product of Bollywood biggest dynasty Rishi Kapoor slammed Congress VP by the following the argument. The actor tweeted saying:
B-town celebs are know for their fake camaraderie. The fake air-kisses and love is usually limited to cameras and Twitter.
But last week a very viscous fight broke between producer Karan Johar and actress Kangana Ranaut.
A day after he and his team were manhandled in the city of Jaipur, Director-Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali released a statement about his upcoming movie Padmavati.
The movie is called ‘Raees’ (meaning: Rich), but ironically, the team came up with a poor marketing strategy!
Another uneventful Filmfare would have gone by, but then Harshvardhan Kapoor (Anil Kapoor’s son) started a cat fight after he tweeted this…
You can take a wrestler out of the wrestling ring, but you can’t do the opposite.
