Entertainment rewind for August: Developments in SSR case to nepotism debate

The coronavirus pandemic did pause our lives for a bit, but everything else has been going on. In showbiz, the only constant is ‘the show must go on.’ And so, it has been true for our entertainment industry as well. And that is what brings us to this entertainment remind for August 2020.

While this is not an extensive rewind, it does have some of the highlights from the month gone by. It might not have been the best of months, yet, a lot transpired this month.

Here’s a glimpse of entertainment rewind for August:

Sushant Singh Rajput case updates

One of the most talked-about news this month and before that has been the actor’s demise. There have been regular updates and developments in the case, right from CBI probe to recent information. It has been a rather difficult time for many, and the media has time and again, also been questioned.

Kangana Ranaut on Twitter

Kangana has been actively involved in trying to get justice for SSR, and it was this time that she took to debut on social media. While it did grab a lot of attention, it has received mixed reactions from netizens.

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma all set to become parents

A rather happy piece of news that came in this year was Virushka’s pregnancy. The couple shared a photo on social media along with the happy news. They are expecting their baby in January 2021, and the announcement left fans in a frenzy.

Film releases being caught up in the nepotism debate

We cannot talk about entertainment rewind for August without mentioning nepotism. OTT has witnessed multiple film releases, and yet, the biggest of films failed to work well. From Sadak 2 to Gunjan Saxena, films received bashing inside out. None the less, a movie like Shakuntala Devi, or Khuda Hafiz, was also praised. While the debates only worsen, the cause remains to be one that is rather blurred.

Pandit Jasraj passes away

A rather severe loss for the industry, the news did have everyone praying for his peaceful demise. He passed away due to a heart attack in the USA.

Sanjay Dutt diagnosed with lung cancer

Another tough news that we had to hear about was the actor’s health update. While Dutt was hospitalized for a few days, it was said that he has recovered. However, it was later revealed that he is suffering from stage 4 lung cancer.
