All Game Of Thrones fans have known and mourned the stabbing on Jon Snow at the finale of Season 5. But there are very strong reports that everyone’s favourite ‘crow‘ isn’t dead yet. So much so that he’s also been spotted shooting for a war scene in full Stark armour! This man isn’t going anywhere.

4) 11 years of F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Tragedy mein comedy” is the one line description of All India Bakchod‘s show – On Air With AIB. The AIB boys getting a TV show is definitely a big moment for all their fans who followed them since they started their podcast. They got into trouble for pulling off a brilliant roast of Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor in December last year, but that hasn’t stopped them from taking on major issues like fire safety, public spaces and pollution in India through this Last Week Tonight by John Oliverisque show. Started from the bottom and now they’re here!

6) Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

J.K Rowling revealed that the next sequel to Harry Potter will be a two-part play which will be performed in London. Yes, I know how unfair it is! Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be about Albus Severus Potter and Harry’s life after Voldemort‘s death. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

7) A new Twilight book came out

From a just an app used by celebrities to mouth dialogues of the movies they’ve done or wish they had done to having legit movie promotions via the app. Dubsmash has come a long way and  it’s here to stay.

19) The Dress

Blue and black or white and gold? This question still haunts me. Also, the entire Team MissMalini spent the whole day debating over the colours of the dress.
