Billu blues

Just as Billu, minus the ‘Barber’, released in theatres, King Khan had a series of bad news to handle.

First, unidentified miscreants threw some bottle with an inflammable substance into Mannat, his sea-front home, in the wee hours of Friday morning. If that was not enough, he got news from one of his prime brands — Pepsi, and that wasn’t pleasant either. PepsiCo has decided against renewing its contract with its decade-long brand ambassador in favour of bringing in fresh youth icons.

We think his fingers and toes must be crossed right now for the fate of Billu.
