Priyam Saha , 30 Dec 2016

Yet another year is coming to an end and as we step into the coming year let’s quickly look at the biggest things that happened in Bollywood in 2016, shall we?

1. The Curse of 2016 – The break-ups!

My God, it was not even a joke. Innumerable celebrity couples broke up this year – Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Bhabani, Sushant Singh Rajput-Ankita Lokhande, Arbaaz Khan-Malaika Arora, Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie and many many many more. Yep, 2016 is officially going down as the year of the break ups.

2. Kangana Vs Hrithik

Oh well, there was this hot mess! No one seems to have much clarity on what exactly happened between the two of them or rather when something happened between the two of them – so we’re just chalking this one upto ‘there’s no smoke without fire.’

Guys, I Think It’s Time To Lay Off The Kangana-Hrithik Gossip.

3. Kangana Vs Deepika

This isn’t so much of 2016 scene, but we can call this leftovers from the previous year. The takeway from their drama is just this – they’re not exactly BFFs.

4. Deepika Vs Priyanka

This, I’m not buying. Both these lovely ladies are strong, confident and beautiful, but there was some chatter about their cold war now that they’re both eyeing Hollywood careers. Catfight or not, they’ll always have Pinga Gapori.

5. Sonam Kapoor In Coldplay

Deepika Padukone’s xXx and Priyanka Chopra’s Baywatch were obviously huge talking points this year, but it doesn’t take away from what a big deal it is for Sonam to be in a Coldplay video.

6. Global Citizen Festival

Coldplay performed in India. Game over.

7. Sonam Kapoor Is Dating

Sonam Kapoor is dating Anand Ahuja – and he’s all over her and her family’s Instagram photos. For Sonam, this is the most ‘public’ she’s gotten about any of her relationships. Yay!

8. Virat & Anushka Got Back!

I am a sincere #Virushka shipper. I was shaken when reports of them separating started doing the rounds. The two of them are very much together and Virat had announced it with a ‘we were on a break’ tshirt some months ago.

9. Deepika & Ranveer Are Still Together

*Sigh of relief*

10. Salman Khan’s Wedding Rumours

To cope with all the drama, I sat down and drank with two of my closest friends Shreemi and Swagata just to take a look at the year that’s going by.
