He is amazing when he spreads his arms and looks romantically at the camera. He is brilliant when he is paired with a co-star to take a dig at his own superstar persona. And, he is par excellence when he is handed a microphone. Shah Rukh Khan did prove in TED Talk, how articulate and impressive he is while speaking on stage.

And, he did it once again during an event in Mumbai to launch INOX 7-star cinema. He said that nowadays the condition of theatres is getting better than the quality of films.

"Few years ago, when we used to watch films, or when I was younger, I remember theatres used to be bad but films were very good. I've noticed somehow that theatres are taking over the quality of films now," he added.

Though he said it while promoting INOX cinema, the irony of his statement couldn’t be clearer. The actor said it is important to have quality cinema halls which make the experience of movie watching richer. "I make films but I hardly get to see them in beautiful theatres like these.

"So many wonderful films have been made around the world, including our own Baahubali. So, it's important that theatres give you the experience to make the film look even better," Shah Rukh said.

Justin Bieber may have had a short India trip, but he’s being trolled even now on Twitter for a “disappointing” concert. How could Sona Mohapatra not join the Bieber bashing? She repeatedly made some annoying comments.

And when she was trolled by the self-acclaimed Beliebers, she offered peace:

And, then again, took a sly dig at Salman Khan’s fans annoying both Salman and Bieber fans

Now, the buzz is that she is doing all this to draw attention and get some shows. However, trolls did not spare her and made some scathing remarks too.
