The WWE pay-per-view 2021 WrestleMania Backlash started out with an opening video with a voice-over by none other than ‘The Animal’ Dave Bautista aka Batista with a few clips from his upcoming Zombie flick Army of the Dead added here and there.
And to be honest, the video was great! It perfectly highlighted the matches that were planned for the evening, the rivalries that had shaped up and now that I understand how branding works.
It was a great way to pitch a movie trailer within a live event.
But those who have been watching the WWE for a long time now were fairly certain that the interaction between the organisation and the zombies was not complete just yet and that they’d be seeing some more “undead action” later in the day.
you can't put footage of big dave batista fighting zombies in the opening of the ppv and then not have any zombies on the rest of the ppv — BossMoz (@BossMoz) May 16, 2021
see i was right — BossMoz (@BossMoz) May 17, 2021
And surely enough, more and more zombies began to find their way into the Yuengling Center in Tampa Florida, haunting the wits out of the legendary John Morrison when he went to “make an offer” to the Lumberjacks ahead of the match of his partner The Miz against Damian Priest.
Just as Morrison opens the door to the Lumberjacks’ dressing room, he finds himself staring at a bunch of the “walking dead”, looking mean as ever.
Morrison would then go on to inform The Miz about what he saw, but the latter was too focused on his match with Damian Priest to pay a lot of attention to it and asked Morrison to snap out of it.
Just as the Lumberjack match began, the fighters could see the ring getting surrounded by smoke and… you guessed it, ZOMBIES, standing all over the place, waiting to get their hands of the fighters (apparently, these man-eating savages are only allowed to throw punches in the WWE’s PG13 era).
Now, before you go crazy, complaining about how the WWE simply sold out their entire pay-per-view to promote a film about zombies, consider the fact that the most successful gimmick played in the history of pro-wrestling, was that of a zombie, the Dead Man… the Undertaker.
And that’s exactly why the fans of the show backed up this move with all their heart and had some fun with it too:

A day after an FIR was filed against beauty influencer Hitesha Chandranee who had accused a Zomato delivery person of assault, she has reportedly fled Bengaluru. According to a report in The News Minute, Hitesha’s home address was leaked online, and in order to keep herself safe, she left the place. Well, the police got to know about it when they reached her place and no one responded. “When we went to her house nobody opened the door,” said Anil Kumar, Police Inspector, Electronic City Police Station.
Another police official told the news website, “She feels afraid staying here as people might come to her home to speak with her about the FIR.” The official added, “We heard from her that she will contact the police today and will give a statement. She might not have left the city to abscond from the police and might contact us.”
After the news of her fleeing away went viral, people started to bash her and even went on to say that she is perfect for the next season of Bigg Boss. A Twitter user even taunted her saying she should join BJP as the party might provide her Y+ Security.

People are supporting Kamaraj, the Zomato delivery person who was accused by Chandranee after he shared his side of the story. In an interview with The News Minute, he had said, "After I reached her apartment door, I handed her the food and I was expecting her to pay me (as she had opted for cash on delivery mode of payment). I also apologized since the delivery was delayed due to traffic and bad roads. But she was very rude from the outset. She asked me ‘Why are you late?’ I replied apologetically, as there were road blocks due to ongoing civic works and there were traffic jams as well. But she kept on insisting that the order has to be delivered within 45-50 minutes. I am working on this job for more than two years and this is the first time that I have had to go through this kind of an ordeal."
He also added, “At this point, when I was walking towards the lift, she started using expletives in Hindi. She suddenly threw slippers at me and started hitting me. For my safety, when she was hitting me, I tried to use my hand to shield her blows. When she was trying to push my hand away, she accidentally hit herself with her finger ring on the nose, which led to the bleeding. Anybody who sees her face will understand that this wouldn't be created by a punch. And I don’t wear any rings."
Kamaraj further mentioned that "the Zomato support system person in Delhi also supported me and offered me empathy after I narrated the ordeal that I had to go through. The problem is there is no CCTV footage to prove my innocence."

Zomato, who are covering the medical costs of Hitesha, as well as the legal costs being incurred by Kamaraja, have stated that the delivery man has completed over 5000 deliveries, and has a rating of 4.75 stars, which is a rarity.

Irrespective of which side of the fence you’re on, one thing is very clear. Never demand free food, especially when you’re in a position to pay for it. We have heard countless stories of food delivery boys being overworked, and sometimes, underpaid.
Refusing to pay a delivery boy for food that you have ordered, knowing that the due amount will be deducted from his salary, is not just reckless, but reeks of privilege, and how blind one is to their socio-economic privilege.

Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, who is known for his on-screen versatility and stellar performances, is all set to enthrall the audience with his power-packed act in his upcoming web series, Tandav. He is someone who always chooses to speak on the political matter of the country, especially when most of the industry chooses to be a mute spectator.
कल shoot से मौक़ा मिला। #SinghuBorder का चक्कर लगा लिया गया। ये अपने आप में अनुभव है!!! #isupportfarmersprotest #IStandWithFarmers 🏽🏽🏽 pic.twitter.com/52usEwymOT — Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub (@Mdzeeshanayyub) December 12, 2020
Now, he is a part of a political web show, Tandav, wherein he will be seen playing the role of a revolutionary who's not okay with the system. In real life too, Ayyub voices his opinions without any fear. Not every actor wants to speak about the political scenario and it's noticed that actors steer clear away from politics.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Ayyub was asked the reason behind actors staying mum on many issues. To which he responded, "I would say that there is a fear among the makers as there's a lot of money involved in the movies so if there's any backlash on our statements, it might create a problem. I do understand that aspect but I don't agree with it as I am always active on social media. This is a misconception that an artist should only focus on just art. This is a rigid mindset and I would want to say that art is no different as it's inspired from the realities around us and it's difficult for an artist to completely cut off from the society around him."
Why actors are told not to take interest in politics? @Mdzeeshanayyub answers...#TalkingFilms #BollywoodHungama YT: https://t.co/7S3LophNpF pic.twitter.com/VK16LEpd1D — BollyHungama (@Bollyhungama) January 12, 2021
He went on to add that the youth needs to speak up if they want a change and he further stated that it's the ignorance that we have when it comes to politics that has resulted in these many problems.
"I would want to quote Bertolt Brecht as he said that the worst illiterate is a political illiterate because that imbecile doesn't understand that the corrupt politicians, rising pricing of cereals, and all other problems are happening because of the lack of their interest in politics. They start taking pride in their ignorance and that's what breaks a nation. When you talk about India, students need to have an interest in politics as they are free of other burdens. These students need to raise their voices for the future they want," added the actor.

For someone who grew up watching The
Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl, I constantly found myself
ranting about the lack of catchy and impactful teen-dramas in India. As luck
may have it, I came across the web series REJCTX, and it became my
guilty pleasure before I knew it.
Sassy, hot and savage, REJCTX is
everything you can expect from a âwokeâ teen drama. The show revolves around 8
youngsters from the Jefferson World School who know no limits when it comes to
their bank balance, affairs or private school pomp. But hey, they arenât rebels
without a cause.
While these characters are oozing charisma and appeal almost always, they're often found addressing their inner
demons â be it insecurities, broken families, bisexuality, drug-addled
encounters, and what not. Together, they form a band called REJCTX and
unite to fulfil their dreams. However, the ending of Season 1 made me jump out
of my sofa in shock â after all, it ended with a gunshot, a mysterious murder.
ZEE5 rolled out Season 2 of REJCTX last
week and the pilot episode did total justice to the cliffhanger. Before I urge you to stream this gripping teen
drama (believe me, I will), hereâs a sneak peek into the 8 misfits who are the
backbone of the show:
Additionally, this season also features Esha
Gupta and Sumeet Vyas in significant roles.
News is, this hot, vivacious and spunky group of 8 is hosting a contest for us on Instagram. Believe me, its easy-peasy and the reward is not something you should miss out on. View this post on Instagram If you think you can impress your fave #REJCTX star, tell us the pick-up line you'd use in the comments below! Now go on a virtual date ð A post shared by REJCTX (@rejctx.zee5) on May 21, 2020 at 7:05am PDT That's true! Just type out your favourite (and original) pick up line in the comments of this post, and the entry that stands-out will get a chance to go on a virtual date with each one of the hot and happening REJCTX kids! Make sure you don't miss out on this chance, the contest will last for one week. Additionally, the winners will get a special mention on the official Instagram handles of ZEE5 and REJCTX.
And guys, once you're done with the contest, you know the drill - head straight to Goldie Behl's entertaining teen-drama REJCTX2. All the episodes are now streaming on ZEE5. View the full article
Celebrated singer Zayn Malik has shared some pretty big and exciting news for his Indian fans. In a recent interview with Elle India, Zayn revealed his big Bollywood plans. Apparently, he has already recorded his first Bollywood track!
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Jan 27, 2018 at 5:35pm PST
The movie's name wasn't revealed but this is a full Hindi number so it will be exciting. Also, for his new album, he is including a lot of Urdu in his music with some Bhangra vibes thrown in. Also, Zayn has collaborated with the maestro A.R Rahman for one of the songs in the album. Zayn is a Bollywood fan and has previously confessed his love for SRK and his 'Devdas', which is his favourite movie and he even forced his girlfriend Gigi to watch it.
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Jul 13, 2017 at 6:02am PDT
Interestingly, Zayn always thought Shah Rukh Khan was arrogant in real life until his chance encounter with him changed his perception about King Khan.
