And the festival of lights and love is upon us! That's right, Diwali is here-- if you don't already know and haven't already choked from the pollution that's in the air--and it's time to bring out the decks and lay down the cards. Yes, the spree did start with saaf/safai and gift/shift wrapping, with some bribing to dhan ki Devi Laxmi Ji on the side but the much-awaited activity during Diwali is hands down all the taash playing that happens at mostly all the parties that one is invited to! And do you know who throws the best bash in town? It's Bollywood, the collective fraternity that takes more to fraternising during the festival but hey, we are not complaining!
If anything, we are already imagining them playing cards, keeping them close to their chest and revealing their kings and queens at the right time! That's not all; the creative minds at play (yours truly) have also played out the bets that our fave actors and actresses can place and we're here to share per usual. So, from Ranveer Singh to Deepika Padukone and from Alia Bhatt to Ranbir Kapoor, here's what these stars would/should bet on...
Ayushmann Khurrana: Quirky subjects and stories
If there's anything certain about anything these days, it is the conviction that Ayushmann Khurrana will only come up with good and interesting stories to tell. Yes, that's a lot of pressure but blame it on the ringing cash registers at the box-office. Something's gotta give! So, if there's anything Ayush should bet on it his nose for such scripts. Also, there's no way he is losing that bet!
Hrithik Roshan: Greek God looks
Call us vain, if you want to but if Hrithik Roshan will ever go down in history it is for his Greek God, should-be-criminal-to-be-looking-like-this looks (among other things). Especially, after War, it his definitely the ripped dad bod that he should bet on. We know we will!
Ranveer Singh: Undying enthusiasm
Ranveer Singh, and there is no other way to say this, is a bunny on crack! Apart from being a power-house performer, the actor is also one who doesn't know how to quit. Promotions? He is doing it! Ramp-walk? He is at it. More media interactions? He is doing them all! Hence, the aforementioned.
Alia Bhatt: Karan Johar
Now, this is no way is a snarky comment! Alia Bhat had, has and will always have Karan Johar and that's the tea really! The director/actor share a bond that goes beyond a working relationship where a filmmaker gave a starlet a break and we don't wish to sugarcoat it; there's already so much between them!
Deepika Padukone: The comment Ninja
Deepika Padukone might not be Sanjay Leela's Bhansali's muse tomorrow (who are we kidding? that's never going to happen) but she will never not be hubby Ranveer Singh's muse. Now, we also call Ranveer the 'Comment Ninja' for reasons known to all and we really think that's something DP will never lose, even if she tosses it for a bet. In fact, we don't think she will, but you get the drill?
Vicky Kaushal: Versatility
How's the josh? pretty low, sire! Honestly, that's just because I had to ramble and type it out at the end of a really long day but that is no way takes away from the fact that Vicky is just gifted. Gifted with character traits of a chameleon, much like his counterparts in this very list but this is by far his biggest credential. That and his bare-chested gaze!
Kareena Kapoor Khan: Style statement
Kareena Kapoor Khan could step out in pyjamas and still look like she is wearing couture, like Alia Bhatt once said, and it just can't be said enough. The diva who is also bestowed with unfazed superstardom (it was a close second for the bet) is always her fashionable best and it is really unfair. You know, 'tumhe koi haqq nahi banta ki tum itni khoobsurat lago! Not fair!'
Ranbir Kapoor: Kapoor & Sons legacy
Ranbir Kapoor, somehow and for reasons, have become the face of the Kapoor legacy. It's also not surprising considering the store house of talent that he is. But if there's something that people will ask him, even in days when he has hanged up his boots, it will be about the Kapoor Ganpati celebrations.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas: Pursuit of global domination
Priyanka Chopra Jonas when not trotting the globe with hubby Nick Jonas is always finding ways to make us proud on the global platform. And that's traps in enough to call her the global diva and hashtag all the #BrownGirlLoving there is in the world.
Sara Ali Khan: Eugenics
It is established by now that Sara Ali Khan who is only two films old is here to stay! However something that makes her marvel more than her screen presence is the Pataudi genes she is blessed with. It shows and Sara should get them without any fear of losing.. Isn't that like the best bet ever?
