And we are loving it! Finally. Someone spoke out the truth. Mansukhani deserves it and much more.

Tarun Mansukhani directed Dostana which was a fart that achieved only one thing. An excuse for Abhishek Bachchan to win the award for the best actor in comic role in his Dad’s film award function IIFA 4( India International Film Award of Amitabh, Abhishek & Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). What more ? Yeh, it gave an anthem to all those mothers who don’t understand their gay sons, to sing & joke around…ma da ladla bigad gaya! And guess what, NDTV India was playing the same song when the Delhi High Court ruling came out decriminalising gay sex. What an irony! The song says exactly opposite of what the court said. NDTV India played the visuals of the celebrations with the audio of the Dostana song! The channel lost it long ago. So we are cool with that.

Coming back to the topic. Those of you who follow Pritish Nandy on twiteer, must have read his tweet. And those who don’t, take a look.

Nandy’s tweet reads – Guess what, Tarun Mansukhani has just claimed that his film Dostana helped change the attitude towards gays in India. What a pompous ass!

As soon as the Delhi High court verdict came out, Tarun Mansukhani gave hundred interviews claiming how his film Dostana helped in changing the attitude towards gays in India. We thought it did the reverse. Made a big joke out of it. For one such interview, click here. And here is one more where he even talks about Brokeback Mountani. Guts!

Some quick bollywood updates of the day.
