First half of year 2015 is gone but there have been plenty of spicy and creamy gossips from the tinsel town. Below is the list of top news-makers of 2015, so far.
- SALMAN KHAN
The Bollywood Bhaijaan is always in the news, thanks to his movies or rivalry with another top Khan but this year the biggest highlight was his 2002’s hit-and-run case. Right before the D-day his fans, well-wishers and media fraternity gheroed his residential building and followed his car everywhere. Almost the entire Bollywood came to his house to support him. When the verdict came against Salman, millions of people cried and prayed for him to be forgiven. And at last, his worries ended and he got bailed and the sentence annulled.
- SHAHID KAPOOR
Shahid Kapoor might never had tasted fame like this time before. In late 2014 it was reported that his father was looking for a suitable match for him and by early 2015 news came out that Shahid had gotten engaged to a Delhi based girl named Mira Rajput. Now what was more surprising was that Mira is almost thirteen and half years younger than Sasha. At the time of the engagement, Mira was a third year Englsih Hons student at Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi University. The affair was kept absolutely private with both parties refusing to comment. Shahid murmered nothing until he had tied the knot on July 7. The very private actor posted a photo of himself with his wife after the wedding and captioned it ‘hitched’.
- RANBIR KAPOOR
When Ranbir entered Bollywood, he was hailed as the new heir of the box-office. After giving hits like Rockstar and Barfi, his career went downwards with criticised roles in Besharam, Roy and Bombay Velvet. Roy and Bombay Velvet, released this year, were promoted heavily on Ranbir’s name but the results weren’t too fruitful for these films. Both the flicks flopped with the critics arguing if Ranbir’s career had ended or not. Last rumoured heard was that Katrina Kaif is trying to cheer him up and helping him select better scripts. Don’t trust Katrina, Ranbir. Trust your guts, we tell you.

The desi girl of Bollywood created quite a ripple with her American show ‘Quantico’ that has her in the lead role.
