For one of the users watching Hindi dubbed Forrest Gump is much better than watching Laal Singh Chaddha as no one can match Tom Hank’s performance.

For another user, Bollywood can’t produce original content and is surviving on remakes. Forrest Gump is a masterpiece and cannot be compared, the user further wrote.

For Dev Singhal, Forrest Gump is not a story of India.

CAIT files case against Amitabh Bachchan for misleading Flipkart ad, seeks fine of Rs 10 lakh on actor

According to a statement, it has also asked for the advertisement to be taken down.

CAIT

The trade association CAIT has complained to the Ministry of Consumer Affairs about a Flipkart commercial for the upcoming Big Billion Days sale that features Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, calling the advertisement misleading.

In its complaint to the Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA), the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) referred to the commercial as misleading and disparaging of the nation’s small shopkeepers. According to a statement, it has also asked for the advertisement to be taken down.

The CAIT recommended that Flipkart be penalised for false or misleading advertisement in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Consumer Protection Act and that Bachchan be fined Rs. 10 lakh.

Flipkart did not respond to an email that was sent to them. For remarks, Bachchan could not be reached.

According to Section 2(47), Flipkart has misled the public regarding the price at which mobile phones are being made available by sellers/suppliers in the smartphone market of India, doing business through Amitabh Bachchan (endorser).

This has the effect of disparaging the goods, services, or trade of another person, CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal wrote in the complaint.

Further, he stated that the advertisement by Flipkart is misleading because it doesn’t contain truthful and honest representation and is wholly incorrect, malicious, misleading, and manipulative in accordance with Rule 4 of the Guidelines for Prevention of Misleading Advertisements and Endorsements for Misleading Advertisements, 2022.

Sumit Agarwal, CAIT India’s National Secretary and Youth Convenor, tweeted about the situation.

The advertisement featuring Bachchan touting Flipkart’s impending Big Billion Day sale and informing customers that bargains on mobiles won’t be available offline at retail stores was criticised last week by CAIT.

The Big Billion Days sale which is scheduled to start from October 8, midnight, and will end on October 15, midnight, on Flipkart.

Koffee With Karan

With Koffee With Karan season 8, Karan Johar is finally going to return, and his new video makes it very clear that the director and host has taken all the troll and nasty comments into account while dropping the teaser.

In the Koffee With Karan (KWK) promo video, Karan is seen quietly enjoying his coffee while wearing a pink hoodie. Suddenly, his conscience walks up and questions him about the chat show, which is scheduled to return on October 26.

In the teaser, a pink-clad Karan Johar meets his conscience, but it’s a K — Kconscience — who informs him how thanda (cold) and meh (boring) last season was during the discussions. The actual Karan (in pink), who appears confused, queries Kconscience about whether someone has spiked his coffee. Kconscience responds that it may have been perspective this time.

Kconscience continues to make fun of Karan by saying that he should have nicknamed his show Cold Koffee With Karan and by posing the question, Were those cheese jokes with your nepo babies supposed to be funny? Kconscience continues to berate Karan, telling him that all of the instances were essentially the same and that it was extremely lame for a 50-year-old to inquire about the sex lives of 20-year-olds. Kconsicence enquires him, is it because he don’t have a private sex life of his own?

When Karan admits that he could have done a little better, Kconscience explains that he was too busy promoting his Lenskart and other brands while also selling chashmas (spectacles) and hair dyes. A freshly groomed Karan stands up and exclaims with joy that he will now welcome the newest married pair as well as cricket players—but not star children, but star grandchildren.

Karan posted the promo and wrote, turns out, his own Konscience wants to prank me too! But who cares what he thinks—Season 8 is still in the works! He further reveled the release date of his talk show that it will start from October 26 on Dinsney Plus Hotstar.

The host of the show and filmmaker Karan Johar has an extensive following. He was a huge success when Season 1 of Star World began. The first season, which covered Bollywood actors’ personal life, premiered in 2004. Up to this point, Koffee With Karan has had seven successful seasons.

According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan will return on KWK 8. The Bollywood actor could be the first guest Karan’s show, KWK 8.
