Whether it’s at the theatres or outside, Bollywood is a constant source of entertainment. And this entertainment is not limited to the films solely. At times the self-contradictory behavior of some of the biggest Bollywood celebs becomes a greater source of entertainment than any of their films.
Today, we are going to list down 5 such instances that appeared quite ironical to us.
“Say in Hindi”
It was during a shampoo promotion event that a journalist asked Kareena Kapoor Khan to share her views about India Mars Mission. Yes, that was quite a question for those who stay completely oblivious to the world beyond their closed quarters.
Kareena, who had no idea what the journalist was asking, pretended that she didn’t understand the question asked in Hindi and demanded that the journalist should “say in English.” An actress who has made a career of 20 years by working in over 50 Hindi movies does not understand Hindi?
Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai don’t share the warmest equation in the industry. Sonam had even infamously addressed the former Miss World as “Aishwarya Aunty” and her explanation was, because Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had worked opposite her father Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai was an Aunty for her.
Now let’s remind our readers that Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor had worked together in movies like Deewana Mastana, Yuuvraaj, No Entry, and Race 3. Does Sonam call Salman Khan an uncle? In her debut movie, Sonam played a character head over heels in love with one played by Salman and she played his love interest again in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Kareena Kapoor and Anil Kapoor had played a couple in Bewafaa. Instead of calling the Bewafaa star auntie, Sonam is almost best friend with her.
“Feminist now-feminist not now”
Actress Taapsee Pannu is one of the most vocal feminists out there. Back in October 2018, the Thappas actress had tweeted that those who are “accused” and “guilty” of #MeToo must not be celebrated.
Less than 2 years, when one of her favourite directors from the industry got accused of sexual conduct by an actress, Taapasee came out loud and strong is support of that very director, Anurag Kashyap.

“Smash the Patriarchy”
Daughter of Amitabh Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan took to Instagram shortly after prime accused in the SSR death case Rhea Chakraborty came under the radar of the CBI and NCR. Shweta Bachchan, who was married in the 90s, has been staying at her father’s house for several years. She gets to grace the covers of famous lifestyle magazines, walk the ramps for the famous designers, and is invited on talk shows by the virtue of being Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter.
“Empathize with environment”
Dia Mirza was all tears while speaking on ‘climate emergency’ at the Jaipur at the Jaipur Literature Festival, held on January 27 this year. She even refused to use tissues when offered so to dry out her tears. “Thank you, but I don’t need paper,” she said. Now here is a beautiful picture of Dia Mirza with her mother, posted by the RHTDM actress on her Instagram. Gorgeous, she looks. But do you see all those books behind her, and the marvellous rich wooden flooring?
