As ever, a year 2013 too witnessed some weird and out-of-the-box broadside stunts
There’s no such thing as bad publicity, right? Wrong. However, when it comes to actors’ hogging a limelight with a idea of ludicrous courtesy towards their stirring films, it’s formidable to pull a line. Some of a stars go overboard while others uncover restraint. But then, showbiz is a humorous business and roughly all amounts to entertainment. This year saw several such incidents where broadside was a ultimate idea and means didn’t matter much…
Aamir Khan’s bowler
By now, each Bollywood fan (or otherwise) is wakeful how Mr Perfectionist doesn’t mind covering lengths for a graduation of his films. Yes, Talaash seemed like a singular exception. But then, they call him a selling guru for a reason and his joining towards his work doesn’t need a second guess. Having pronounced that, his preference to wear that black felt shawl — wherever he went — before Dhoom-3 expelled came opposite as tad tiresome.
Just weeks before Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbaai Dobara released, a PR machine got into an overdrive. There were dull assertions that Dawood Ibrahim himself has voiced a enterprise to watch a crime drama. Not usually that, there were rumours doing a rounds that a phone talk was in place with a many wanted guy. As predicted, zero came out of it solely some much-needed hum for a mafia-in-love debacle.
Costume-ised Vidya Balan
As distant as her filmography goes, Vidya didn’t have an well-developed year. With Ghanchakkar being her usually vital release, a Kahaani singer unsuccessful to ambience possibly vicious or box-office success. Speaking of a Sujoy Ghosh film, she was appreciated final year for her active appearance in a graduation of a woman-centric film (remember that feign baby bulge?). A identical pretence backfired this year as frequency anyone favourite her branch adult during press conferences in her character’s shrill garb.
Actors removing related adult during a creation of a film is a common use nowadays. And something identical was attempted with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sonal Chauhan when their film 3G was about to release. Even yet both a parties kept a grapevine guessing about their attribute status, it was apparent by a finish that all a regretful stories involving them were floated with a purpose.
The sex bombshell simply knows how to stay in news no matter what. The clearly ignorant chronicle of hers in unfamiliar countries is easily offset by a smart persona witnessed within a country. Well played.
Taken for a ride
In a days heading to Fukrey’s release, a ‘masterminds’ requested a 4 immature actors to mountain on horses for a graduation of a film.

Turned out their characters in a film too had a stage where they are seen roving horses.
The heading expel of Fukrey on horses
What’s value observant about this beguiling tamasha was a director-producer contingent branch adult on bicycles since of their fear of horse-riding!
When pinkish incited pale
For some reason, a selling smarts behind a initial vital recover of a year — Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola — suspicion that a early concentration should be on Gulabo, a pinkish buffalo from a domestic satire. At a finish of a day, a broadside attempt didn’t work as Gulabo unsuccessful to do for a film what Fakhru a pug could for final year’s Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum.
In new memory, really few onscreen protagonists prisoner imagination like Dimple Kapadia’s grouchy lady in What The Fish. However, on a eve of a film’s release, Poonam Pandey and Rakhi Sawant were invited for a event. And as expected, a dual debate queens managed to locate as many wagging tongues as possible. No consternation a maestro singer chose not to attend.
With Atul Sabharwal’s Aurangzeb traffic with a crime universe — and construction business, quite — in no tiny measure, a selling group motionless to reason a discussion in an under-construction building in Lower Parel. It was a first-of-its-kind event; during slightest as distant as a dry concrete in a atmosphere is concerned.
Just days after Tejpal Tarun debate emerged in a headlines, Sudhir Mishra reportedly came adult with a idea that his film Inkaar could have been some-more applicable if it were to recover after instead of a early partial of a year. Maybe he was only creation a point. But with all sincerity, we’d like to see him go behind to creation gems like Haazaron Khwaishein Aisi.
One parsimonious slap
After a production-related delays, Satya 2 finally strike a marquee final month. And on a eve of a release, it done news for all a wrong reasons. Its lead actor, Puneet Singh, slapped Rupesh Jain, a selling conduct of RGV Productions. And that too in full open view. Police box happened after and a forgettable favourite got some giveaway bytes to squeeze some some-more news space.
Small screen, large stunt
Pratyusha Banerjee filed a military censure opposite ex-boyfriend Makrand Malhotra claiming nuisance and written abuse on a phone. The occurrence fizzled out as fast as it appeaerd in a news handle with a telly singer days divided from relocating into Bigg Boss.
Only kids don’t get lost. Siddharth Shukla was reportedly blank final month and he didn’t news to a sets of Balika Vadhu for dual days. With all a melodrama attached, a part incited out to be a small repute stunt.
