2019 has just started and Bollywood has already got its new share of controversies ready. Last week was one eventful week as we saw a combination of positive as well as negative incidents happening with the tinsel towns. It is not even surprising how things that seem petty escalate so quickly beyond everybody's imagination. So here are a few news-makers of the B-town including actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Vivek Oberoi and more. After Hardik Pandya and Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor is Next on Twitterati's Radar for Being a Total BRAT To Katrina Kaif in This Throwback Video.
There was a lot of buzz around two films. Firstly, Anupam Kher-Akshaye Khanna starrer The Accidental Prime Minister released this week. Surpassing all the controversies around it, the film has received mixed response. Secondly, Vicky Kaushal-Yami Gautam starrer Uri:The Surgical Strike has hit the screens. The masses are liking the film and Vicky's performance in it more.

Bollywood stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Bhumi Pednekar, Karan Johar, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal, Sidharth Malhotra, Rohit Shetty, Ashiwiny Tiwari Iyer to name a few met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. They also clicked a selfie with him that was compared to the epic selfie of Hollywood stars with Ellen DeGeneres. The pic and the memes on it went viral in no time.
The 'Modi Biopic' Competition
Internet was shook when it was declared that Vivek Oberoi is going to star in a biopic of PM Modi. The poster was unveiled this week itself that showed him in NaMo's avatar. Soon after this, another startling thing happened! Actor Paresh Rawal too declared his own version of PM Narendra Modi Biopic and the internet is busy making comparisons already!
Karan Johar Trolled
Koffee With Karan 6 host Karan Johar received major backlash by the fans after the outlandish episode featuring cricketers Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul. Their misogynist take on the women in the entire course of episode resulted into ban on both the players in the upcoming ODI match. However, fans are also questioning KJo's way of reacting to their answers and also asking siuch questions in his show.
Ranveer Singh-Sara Ali Khan's film Simmba has managed to be the first hit of 2019. The Rohit Shetty directorial successfully climbed the box office ladder, crossing the Rs 200 crore mark at the ticket windows.
Well, this was all about the week. It is to be seen what the upcoming week has in the store for us. Will KJo comment on the KWK fiasco? Will Vivek Oberoi react on Rawal's Modi Biopic? Taking these and more such questions ahead, we hope that the next week turns out to be a positive one!
