New Year Resolution of Celebrities
New year resolution is a tradition of making promises to oneself for self-improvement. Like any other year, even 2016 had its share of good and bad incidents, policies and decisions. We, at NewsBytes, analyzed various news-makers of 2016. This is our funny take on the probable resolutions of the celebrities.
'Mitr' Narendra Modi
PM Modi introduced some really massive changes in 2016. Demonetization is inarguably the boldest decision of recent times. However, its planning and implementation was something that drew much criticism and Modi was slammed for poor planning. As a result, Modi's resolution should be to invest more time in proper planning and factoring in banks like Axis, Kotak in his strategy.
Virender Sehwag - The Twitter Blaster
Virender Sehwag's Twitter account has been one of the biggest sensations of the year 2016. From birthday wishes, match commentary to topical issues, there has been no area where Sehwag hasn't hit a six to reach this landmark. As a resolution, he must vow to show some respect to his peers and friends at least one day in a year, on their birthdays.
Besides being a consistent source of entertainment, the Congress-VP is yet to make any impact on Indian politics. He needs to work on his oratory skills. He should also try not to take advice from his mother or the previous PM on the same. Reading the speech beforehand and trying to appear serious at the time of delivery is one resolution Gandhi should make.
Shah Rukh Khan
With movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Bahubali, Sultan, Dangal; 2016 was a a phenomenal year for Bollywood. The Khans have been driving Bollywood's numbers since two decades now. However, 2016 wasn't that good year for King Khan. SRK must resolve to produce a blockbuster in 2017, and staying away from directors like Farah Khan could be the first step in the right direction.
Pakistani singer and music-producer Taher Shah released his album 'Angel' earlier in the year. The album created a lot of news, all for the wrong reasons. Some people suggested his albums were more powerful than Pakistani Army and its nuclear prowess. Instead of producing music albums, he must consider joining Pakistan Army. This would ensure that his destruction would be limited to only wars.
Business of Bollywood
Salman Khan starrer Sultan is on top of the list of the highest grossers of the year 2016, with domestic box office collection of more than Rs.300 crore; Aamir Khan's Dangal is on second with around Rs.155 crore till date.
Virat Kohli has been one of the most destructive batsmen of 2016. The Indian Team's test captain must learn to show more respect to visitors so that it is in line with our beliefs like "Atithi Devo Bhava". We doubt that Kohli will change anything in 2017 but we hope our visitors are treated well in the future, after they lose the series.
Virat Kohli accumulated 2595 runs in 35 international appearances in 2016 with 1215 in Tests, 739 in ODIs and 641 in T20 internationals
