New Delhi: Actor Kangana Ranaut has brought all her drama queen talents to Twitter with her.

However, she appears to have crossed a line when in a tweet Thursday, she said that Mumbai felt like Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and criticised the Mumbai Police.

This didn’t go down well with Mumbaikars — at all.

Actor Renuka Shahane got into a battle of words with Ranaut, each intent on shaming the other.

Current poster boy of coronavirus, Sonu Sood relates destiny to the city of Mumbai.

Another Mumbai ‘outsider’ actor Swara Bhasker, who has engaged in several feuds with Ranaut, thanks Mumbai Police for making the city safe.

But BJP Mahila Morcha’s Priti Gandhi digs out an old Bhasker tweet which says something very different about the police.

And, Bollywood’s Urmila Matondkar and Ritiesh Deshmukh find that Mumbai has many other qualities to admire.

Onto other subjects as one of Bollywood’s more articulate stars Richa Chadha shares some wisdom about social media trolls.

In politics, here’s a good old-fashioned BJP Congress pow-wow.

This is one way to put ‘herd immunity’ into perspective.

Let’s see if this ‘Royal’ carriage is able to carry home the IPL trophy, this time.

Lastly, leaving you with a lovely weekend watch, dear readers.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. Ms. Swara Bhaskar is plain obnoxious. Her toxicity knows no bounds.
    Time and again, she has been exposed as duplicitous and double faced.
