Let's be honest--we love B-Town gossip as much as we love the Bollywood masala films, sometimes even more! Well, that's exactly why the pap culture continues to flourish despite its many problems. Be it a brand new couple in the tinsel town or a smoking hot controversy, we never say no to some fresh B-Town gossip. And while sometimes celebs are all game with the rumour mills owing to the free publicity, some secrets are not to be shared. These are the kind of things that the Bollywood celebs would rather not talk about and protect with their life.
Sadly, such things have a way of coming out some way or the other and when they do, we are always on the lookout. In fact, we might have some B-Town gossip that's as rare as finding two identical Colombian emeralds. Yup! Rest assured, this is going to be one hot goss-sesh and without much ado, here are seven mind-boggling Bollywood facts that no one talks about.
Say what you may but Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s love story is written in the stars and we have some solid proof. Did you know that the two made their Bollywood debut way back in 1999 with a lesser-known film called “Yeh Kyun Ho Raha Hai”? Quite ironically, the two played siblings in the film and honestly, looked quite adorable. While the film might have tanked, it was a heartwarming story of an ailing single mother who had limited time on hand to teach her children the basics of surviving in a cruel world. The film is available on Amazon Prime and needs to be on your watchlist in case you feel like watching cute, little Alia killing it on the screen with her impeccable talent.
Often mocked for her English during the early days of her career, Kangana Ranaut really shut her haters by perfecting the language and showing it off during her Koffee With Karan debut. Well, guess what? The actress also took lessons in Tamil a couple of years ago. And while we don’t know much about her proficiency in Tamil, the actress's French is quite refined and she can speak the language as fluently as English now.
From her breezy kaftaans to glorious evening gowns, Kareena Kapoor Khan never fails to make a statement with her fashion picks. However, fashion for her is way bigger than just wearing pretty clothes. Now where we might be heading with this you ask? Well, very few people know that Kareena has her own fashion line called PHAT Couture. Yes, you read that right. The brand is pretty popular among International celebs and from Kim K to Gigi Handid, almost everyone has worn the label. In fact, Victoria Beckham who is a fashion designer herself loves Kareena’s aesthetics and lists PHAT Couture among her favourite high fashion brands closely followed by Prada and Gucci.
When Ranveer Singh often talks about his bartending days in Goa before his Bollywood debut, he has hardly been vocal about his teenage days as a pole dancer. Yup, he once toured the globe with an Egyptian pole dancing group. Ranveer shared the story in a 2007 blog post titled, “They Were The Best of Times, They Were The Worst Of Times.” Recollecting the days in his post, he wrote, “Back then, I didn’t really think about how the never-ending practices were breaking me in an irreversible way. I was just a teenager and wanted to make it big anyhow. We were literally made to practice for over 18 hours a day and do stunts that often put us in danger. I once almost broke my neck while attempting an Attitude Spin. Well, thank God those days are behind me and it is a secret that I really won’t like to talk about ever again."
While Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas might make it look like they are the most perfect couple in the world, the two have had their share of ups and downs. In fact, Priyanka has finally opened about how the two of them almost had a breakup right before their wedding day. “It was an anxious day and things weren’t working out. Nick’s stomach was upset because of all the Paani pooris that he had tried from a shady stall just a couple of days ago despite the fact that I warned him against it. I was really mad at him for not listening to me and said something that I am not really proud of. Things quickly heated up and we almost had a break-up. I hate to think about that moment and yet somehow feel that it strengthened us as a couple."
Madhuri Dixit dancing on 'Mayi ni mayi' in Hum Aaapke Hain Kaun is a sight that few have forgotten even after almost three decades since the film released. The credit, of course, goes to a very beautiful Madhuri Dixit, her charming smile, and most importantly that purple backless blouse, that continues to inspire fashionistas to date.
Well, it is a look that no one has been able to re-create and while Sonam Kapoor might have tried to do it in the past, the attempt left Madhuri pretty pissed. Just a couple of years ago, Sonam came up with her take on Madhuri's iconic look with a purple lehenga choli. However, it did not go well with the Hum Aaapke Hain Kaun who responded with an angry tweet that was later deleted by her PR team. Unfortunately, Sonam didn't stop just there and went on sharing one backless choli look after another. This obviously infuriated Madhuri who was on the verge of suing Sonam. However, daddy Kapoor interrupted on time and convinced Madhuri against it. Rumour has it, that he always paid the paps to avoid spreading the story.
Remember when Malaika Arora broke the internet with her Maldives pictures in 2019? Well, tabloids suggest that the actress actually went to the Island country with beau Arjun Kapoor for a very special reason. In fact, a little birdie told us that they secretly tied the knot in the Maldives and are actually husband and wife right now. "It was a simple wedding and the two said the vows in a chapel. I still remember how resplendent Malaika looked in her powder pink maxi gown. It was honestly quite dreamy," they told us.
Shocking right? But then so is the fact that you actually fell for any on it and have made it to the bottom of this story on April Fool's Day. Sorry fam, we just couldn't resist! On another note, we just gave you an epic April Fool's Day prank right there. Just share this story with your friends and see how they react. Good luck!
