Five States: on upcoming Assembly polls

As five States go to the polls with just months left for the Lok Sabha election, the temptation to read the results as pointers will be great. What makes the contest in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan even more interesting is that these will witness a direct fight between the BJP and the Congress, the principal players at the national level. Whoever wins would have hurt the opponent twice over. Additionally, the Congress is a big player in Telangana and Mizoram too, raising the stakes in this round further. Without a doubt, the results will have a bearing on how the issues are framed

Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji And Karan Johar Weren’t Serious Enough For The Internet At Krishna Raj Kapoor’s Funeral

In what seems to have become standard narrative after the death of a film fraternity member, the Internet has become enraged after spotting three mourners laughing while attending Krishna Raj Kapoor’s funeral. Actors Rani Mukerji and Aamir Khan and filmmaker Karan Johar have been criticised on social media after a video of them sharing a light moment went viral. The footage appears to have been shot outside Krishna Raj bungalow, the Kapoor residence in Mumbai’s Pali Hill. Krishna Raj Kapoor, matriarch of the family, died on Monday and her funeral was attended by many film industry members. This was no time to for smiles, according to an angry Internet.

Alluding to a scene in Madhur Bhandarkar’s 2005 film Page 3, a Twitter user shared the video and wrote: “Looks straight from film Page 3 at Krishna Raj Kapoor funeral… See Karan Johar laughing with Rani Mukerji and Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt. #Shame… But nobody will condemn for sure.” Another seemingly infuriated Twitter user added: “These filmi idiots are hypocrites of the highest order. One can’t expect any civility from them.”

However, a section of the Internet tried to reason with trolls, saying: “She was 87 and lived her life quite well. She was sick for last few days and people were aware that the moment has come. Obviously people close to her will feel the void in their life but that’s it.”
