Suhana Khan appears on the cover of a magazine for the first time


Suhana Khan recently appeared on the cover of Vogue India; interestingly, it was the first time the celebrity kid had appeared on the cover of a magazine. Suhana is Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan's eighteen year old daughter; Khan has two siblings Aryan Khan and AbRam Khan. In my outlook, Khan appearing on the cover of the Indian magazine is a typical example of the stardom which children of celebrities often experience simply because they were born into such a starry family; love that or loathe that, if you are a thinker, then it still provides fodder for your brains.

Keanu Reeves will be seen in a planned television spinoff of the ‘John Wick’ films

A new television series rooted in the 'world of assassins' which is shown in the John Wick films has been planned. It is going to add another arc to the story of the films and actually further the story more: the series is slated to focus on a hotel that was featured in the John Wick films. Titled as 'The Continental', which is also the name of the hotel, the series is currently being produced by Lionsgate and it is to be a prelude to the John Wick films.

It has been planned that Keanu Reeves, who played ‘John Wick’ in the films, is going to make a special appearance of sorts in the television show as Wick. The series is going to be very different from the films because it is not supposed to revolve around Wick at all. It will instead examine a plethora of assassins and how they are all connected to the hotel. Meanwhile, the main character in The Continental will probably be played by an actor who had not been cast in the John Wick films.

Gold




Gold is a film about the first gold medal which India had won at the Olympics in 1948 - the year right after India became independent from British colonial rule; the gold medal was won by the country's hockey team. In my outlook, Gold is a compelling film because it tackles the subject of hockey, which as a sport in India is less popular than cricket, within the context of Indian history. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy and Kunal Kapoor.

The film is produced by Dharma Productions and its core subject is a romance that develops between a boy and a girl which ends in a very big tragedy because the girl is from a family that is of a higher social class than the family which the boy is from.

Lemon



Lemon has hip hop + rock band N.E.R.D. collaborating with Rihanna which is interesting. In my outlook, the song's upbeat music is the song's greatest plus point, and leaving that aside there are also the vocals which are good as they swing from mate to female.

1-800-273-8255



Logic collaborated with Canadian music artist Alessia Cara and American music artist Khalid on this track; it received two nominations at this year's Grammys. I think the song has good staying power because it has a good beat and also interesting lyrics which words out the idea of suicide.
