Senseless Headlines


New Picture


Drunk Aamir lands director in problem

That's the headline.

The story is - Aamir being Aamir, decided that it would be better if him and his co-stars got drunk for a shot (method acting, perfectionist, realism bla bla).

They (Aamir, Madhavan & Sharman Joshi) got drunk. The director took a couple of retakes so he would have an option to select which ever one he thought was best. In the process, the unit ran out of film reel.

THAT was the PROBLEM the director landed into because of DRUNK Aamir.

The headline for tomorrow should be - Idiotic reporter lands TOI in problem. THAT would definitely get even more hits, don't you think?

ROTFL @ Idiotic reporter lands TOI in problem

I dont think much has changed in TOI in the last 10 years, when I was working there. The problem is that most of the guys and gals working in Indiatimes and its sister sites have no experience in journalism and use them as a stepping stone for their TV/IT journalism careers.

Hey SV,

One thing has definitely changed. With time, they have just gotten worse. And it continues...

Sigh.. hota hai, chalta hai, duniya hai.
