Tuesday Post: Because I can.

The big story, as far as I'm concerned today is AMITABH ADMITS SODA IS POISON!

Big B, who was urging celebrities to exercise due diligence before endorsing brands, said that he stopped endorsing Pepsi after a schoolgirl confronted him and asked why he promoted the soft drink which her teacher branded as poison.

Bachchan admitted that the question left him speechless and made him realise what impression it had on people's minds.

"So I stopped endorsing Pepsi," he told the gathering.

Seriously, good for you, Big B!!! Habitual soda use is terrible for health and the soda companies use a lot of water, taking a public good and selling it back to us.

There has been a lot of discussion here in the USA over Scarlett Johansson endorsing Sodastream, which has a factory in the illegally occupied Palestinian territories. Do celebrities have a moral duty not to endorse harmful products? I suppose it depends on the morals of the celebrity…

Akshay Kumar is opening a self defense institute for women!

Good on the Khiladi!

Kochadaiiyaan on April 11th.

Adhyayan Suman says there's no advantage to being a star son. Sure, if by 'no advantage' you mean 'every advantage.' Sure, being a star son won't give you natural charisma or the skill that comes from hard work and effort but you also don't deserve to be a movie star if you lack either one. You don't just get to show up on set and be a hero. Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor are naturally gifted but they also work hard.

The first look of Sonam and Ayushmann's Bewakoofiyaan aka a film you would have to pay me A LOT OF MONEY to sit through.

Almost every reason in the book why One by Two failed except the real one: It sucked.

Anushka Sharma's lip job.

Nargis is a huge dummy and clearly has even less weight between the ears than she does on her slender frame. Why are you telling Ileana to loose weight? She's tiny! Uday, dude, just marry this woman already and get her out of my face.

Because I love her: sexy promotional photoshoot from Manisha Koirala.

Fashion pics from Ahana Deol's wedding.

Anil Kapoor wants some of that sweet Tampa, Florida tax credit action.

A mini interview with Foreigner In Bollywood J Brandon Hill.

He didn’t mind being “Fooled by Abhishek Bachchan (who sold him the Taj Mahal in Bunty aur Babli) for he is at the top. I had a great time shooting with Abhishek who also welcomed me to the fraternity and I got an elephant ride for free!”

“Though he conned me initially, five years later I beat him up in a film,” a guffaw follows as he narrates his amicable relationship with the junior Bachchan.

Omg… this is my kind of celebrity fanfic. If Sasha and Sona are actually dating… DO MORE MOVIES TOGETHER TOO!

(And Sona smartly declines a Subhash Ghai film.)

----

And… the TOI spills the beans on the phone manners of top stars and it's exactly as you would expect.

Have Helen cougarizing a young Mithun!

You know you've been hanging around too much with Indians when you spell "lose" as "loose." :)

(as in "loose weight")

All of a sudden, I find myself very much in favor of that rumor that has Nargis costarring with Mahesh and Sonakshi in Shivam. Sona would tell her where she could go and what she could do when she got there.

Phone manners story was cute, even if it did end up implying that to have really good phone messaging manners, you need to either be a valley girl (in spirit, if you are a married woman in your thirties), semi-retired, or borderline OCD.

@moimeme OMG!! What a funny typo!! And yes, that's probably true. LOL!!

@odadune I like the way you think re: Nargis. Oh, to be a fly on the wall for any interactions those two had… LOLLL!

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
