LOL! Here’s Why Every Day is April Fools’ Day for Hrithik, Mallya
Bura na maano, April Fools’ hai!
As the world braces for the annual celebration of foolery and pranks on unsuspecting people, a few popular names are unfazed. It’s just another day for them. Who? Read on.
Hrithik’s surely living his life as if zindagi na milegi dobara. After Kangana Ranaut suggested she had an affair with Hrithik Roshan, the Krrish actor lost his cool and took to Twitter to refute her statements. He claimed that there were more chances of him having an affair with the Pope – a comment which has offended a few Christian communities.
Hrithik then filed a notice against Kangana Ranaut, in which he alleged that the actress suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome which made her imagine things. This comment was believed to be in bad taste by many, and it seemed Hrithik once again made a fool of himself.
Hrithik should just take a break on 1 April.
Imagine taking a loan from a bank. Then refusing to pay it, and then offering to pay a part to ‘settle the dues’. This could either be straight out of a Bollywood film or a distant dream of a ‘loan-some’ mind. But Vijay Mallya has supposedly mastered the act, and pulled one of the greatest pranks.
Initially claiming to be ‘not absconding’ and just out on a ‘trip’, Mallya slipped out of the country before the law could catch up. Now, he’s holding the banks to ransom. Do you hear dramatic music playing the background?
If Mallya is here, can the CBI be far behind? Let’s be honest, all of us make mistakes. We mistakenly add salt to tea, we press the accelerator instead of the brakes, and we also, sometimes, watch Sajid Khan movies. But under no circumstances do we send out lookout notices ‘by mistake’, and then retract them, only to put them out again, especially when the subject is of national interest.
Either Vijay Mallya was a lucky genius, or we stand witness to one of the biggest cons of recent times. A very happy April Fool’s day to the bankers.
A fully-functional smartphone for the price of a screen-guard? Kya mazak hai! But no, apparently it was a short-lived hype for a shorter-lived phone. A new brand called ‘Ringing Bells’ splashed the front pages of almost every newspaper, and sold an almost impossible dream – all without a single factory to produce those phones. Hundreds of people got tricked into buying the phone with a ‘Tiranga’ on its back, because ‘Make in India’ and patriotism were neatly packaged with the device.
The company surely acted like those over-smart pranksters who execute half-baked tricks, eventually getting trapped in their own con. The joke’s now on them.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
The Yamuna river has a long history of pollution, and of draining money for cleanliness efforts. Then, a saintly figure walks in and fixes his eye on the riverbed. He promises an elaborate plan to clean up the river by encroaching on the sensitive land, dumping debris, installing tents, erecting stages and getting hordes of people to trample on it. Well, that surely sounds like a ‘foolproof’ plan.
Sri Sri’s Art of Fooling should also send personalised cards to the NGT, for being such a dependable partner in their act. The godman indeed wears many hats.
