Let’s take a look at the week that was:
Hrithik Roshan reacts to Kangana’s various allegations
It took Hrithik Roshan almost 18 months to come out in open and break his silence on the whole Kangana Ranaut issue. He penned a 3 page long open letter and you can read it out here. Many questioned Hrithik’s late response, a family member of Hrithik told mid-day, “Hrithik’s family told him that enough was enough and now wasn’t the time to keep silent. They all sat down and decided that Hrithik needed to take charge of the situation. If you read the last line of his statement, it mentions how children suffer if justice is denied. That is a very telling line. Does anybody have any idea what his children have gone through because of this circus?”
Judwaa 2 becomes Varun Dhawan’s biggest hit
Judwaa 2 is on course to be not just Varun Dhawan’s biggest hit but it also seems it may turn out to be this year’s biggest hit so far.

However, Judwaa 2 (Rs 98.08 crore) has beaten it and taken pole position. ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2 comes in third place with a opening week collection of Rs 71.78 crore. Read the full report here.

Aided by Saif, Padmapriya and Svar’s performances and Menon’s confident direction, Chef merges family drama with food appreciation in a nearly seamless manner. Despite its hiccups, Chef is a breezy watch that will leave you with a desperate craving for food.” Read the full review here.
