Bollywood Loses Another Shining Star

actor rishi kapoor news
Great Actor Rishi Kapoor Passes Away

India, 30th Apr 2020: Shadowing great sadness, the great soul, Bollywood Actor Rishi Kapoor passes away today morning at 8:45 a.m. IST. The actor who made his fans to laugh, to cry, to think, through his unprecedented acting in cinemas, finally left his fans in tears after he had fought a two-year-long battle with leukemia.

    The Bollywood was not even fully recovered from the sad demise of legendary actor Irfan Khan yesterday, and amid that, another great actor departed the world. He was 67 and left behind his wife Neetu Kapoor, son Ranbir Kapoor and daughter Ridhima Kapoor.

    The veteran actor was undergoing treatment for cancer. He flew to New York in September 2019 for his cancer treatment. Later returned to India after having one-year treatment there. His health condition was quite unwell for several days. Finally, he left this materialistic world in a hospital in Mumbai and departed to eternal heaven. May his soul rest in peace and reside in heaven.

    He started his journey in Bollywood from 1970's blockbuster Mera Naam Joker. During that 70's era onward he started dominating Indian cinema with his powerful heroic acting. Rishi Kapoor was born on Sept. 4, 1952. He was the son of Raj Kapoor and Krishna Kapoor. The acting was running in his blood through his DNA. He belonged to a family where acting is more like a family custom. And perhaps, therefore, he was no exception to it. Till his last breath, he had been a part of many banners.

   He is counted among top impressive veteran actors of Bollywood. He had great comic timing, and his several roles made the audience laugh with an open heart. He is an inspiration to the young generation actors. No one can forget such a legend and particularly a great personality.

Assamese Singer Zubin Garg Teased by Google as Zihadi Munna

zubeen garg Full Name
Zubin Garg or Zihadi Hussain Munna?

Assam,29th Apr, 2020: Zubeen Garg is just the another name of Assamese Music World, and he is perhaps the uncrowned king of Assamese Music. From a child to and aged person, everyone loves to hear his music. His melodious voice touches the heart of every listener. If such a living legend is left to face a humiliating situation, everyone's heart gets melted in sadness.
   In a recent algorithm failure, the giant searcher Google displayed the full name of the Assamese Heartthrob Singer Zubeen Garg as Md. Zihadi Hossain Munna, pelting stones onto the sentiments of the Assamese community. Actually, the real full name of Zubeen Garg is Zubeen Borthakur. The name Zubeen Garg was given after the name of another singing legend Zubin Mehta
   Actually such discrepancy appeared because of an faulty entry in the wikipedia page of Zubeen Garg. Someone might have done a mischief or may be it is a failure of the machine. But in the full name section, his name was entered as Md. Zihadi Hussain Munna. Later, the disappointed fans of Zubin Garg reported the bug, and as of today the Wikipedia page seems to get corrected. Today the snippet in Google displays the full name of Zubeen Garg as Zubeen Borthakur.
zubeen garg Full Name
Zubeen Garg Full name is Zubeen Borthakur
Zihadi Hussain Munna is actually a Bangladeshi Tiktoker. And Zubeen Garg has no connection with him. The real full name of Zubeen Garg is Zubeen Borthakur. After the correction now everything is alright. Hope such misstatement never appears in the future. At least such mistakes should not happen with a person who constantly devoted his entire life for the greater cause of upholding the dignity of one's cultural assets.
