Wait... What?! - Bollywood Edition!

I've decided to create a new 'Wait...What?!' card about the most underrated global source of WTFness, the Indian entertainment industry - also known as BOLLYWOOD!
According to Forbes, Bollywood consistently produces the most amount of feature films in the world each year - toppling markets in both China and the US.

With that being said, in those estimated 1,600 films per year, there's a whole lot of 'Wait... WTF?'

Don't believe me? Let's take a look, shall we?

This mass assault-by-banana scene packs a punch AND potassium.

And when it comes to starting a fight, as Kevin Hart once said: "SAY IT WITH YOUR CHEST."

For all of you guys out there, here's how you REALLY court a lady.

Then there's veteran Bollywood actor Vijayakanth, whose mustache has superpowers - as most mustaches do, of course.

And then there's this guy, who is here to teach us the much classier way to 'hulk out' over something.

Thus concludes my 'Wait...What?!' card for today!

Let me know which one of these made YOU laugh the hardest. And of course, if you know of any other hilarious Bollywood scenes, feel free to share your favorites!

@AkashBhojraj @atmi @danidee Let me clarify something here. Bollywood: Hindi movies from Bombay now Mumbai( Maharashtra state) Kollywood: Tamil movies from Chennai( Tamil Nadu state) Tollywood: May refer to both Bengali movies from Tollygunge( West Bengal state) and Telugu movies from Hyderabad( Andhra Pradesh state)
@danidee All the movies here are Tollywood ie tamil movies. These kindof movies have tendancy to exaggerate the strength of the actors, where they appear superhuman! These films are typically superhit in south India.
I love Bollywood, actually. I should say Musical Bollywood. These are crazy and hilarious and remind me of the insane Kung Fu movies I used to be forced to watch with my brothers back in the day. Lol
almost scene above are from kollywood (tamil movie) but they are same great with bollywood movie(hindi) when come into action like their legendary actor Shah Rukh Khan 😍 extra ordinary heroes...LOL
@obiterdictum Well, I haven't watched Dilwale yet but am glad you & your mom liked it!! 😊😊 You can watch Barfi, if you find it online. It's good too.

You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
Adult Industry History
The human interest in sex is nothing new, but the internet has made it much easier to explore and exploit all the nuances of desire. The online porn industry makes billions of dollars in profits every year, but the big beneficiaries are the producers, not the women and men who perform sexual acts in front of the camera. Mia Khalifa was a porn actress for a brief period at the end of 2014. SHe gained worldwide fame when she appeared in a video of sexual content wearing an Islamic hijab (the scarf worn by some Muslim women to cover his head) that caused great controversy and caused him to receive threats from supporters of the self-styled Islamic State (IS). To what extent does pornography still dominate the internet? He currently has 16 million followers on Instagram and if his name is searched on Google, thousands of results appear. But Khalifa is not proud of its worldwide fame. After years of threats, he is now talking openly about his past. What does your story tell us about the porn industry and culture of the 21st century? This is what he told in an interview with Stephen Sackur on the BBC's Hard Talk program. Khalifa, who was born and raised in Lebanon in a Christian family, received death threats from suspected members of the Islamic State. In many ways, you are a very famous woman. But the origin of your fame lies in your brief participation in the porn industry. Is it hard for you to deal with that? Absolutely. After quitting, my Instagram account was hacked by EI supporters, who posted propaganda everywhere. So Instagram deleted it and I didn't make a new account until a year later, when I decided to accept my destiny as the infamous porn star and try to change the narrative. So I created an Instagram account again and tried, in the absence of a better term, to become an influencer. If you put your name on Google, countless links to videos appear. The words "porn star" appear immediately, is that something you will never overcome? I am trying to make it. I am not very friendly with Google and we are trying to change that. The first thing that appears is a site that I have no control over, but that from the beginning is written in the first person, as if it were mine. And on my Wikipedia it is published as my official website. And we have tried countless times to eliminate it, even through legal action, but the company does not listen. And we have made countless proposals. "Why I chose a career in pornography" You were taken by your parents as a child from Lebanon to the US, where you received your education. You are clearly intelligent, you went to the university in Texas, where you studied history. How did you get into the porn industry? I do not believe that low self-esteem discriminates against anyone. Does it matter if you come from a good family or if you come from a not-so-good environment? I struggled all my childhood with being overweight and never felt attractive or worthy of male attention. And suddenly, in my first year of college, I started losing a lot of weight by making small changes. And by the time I graduated, I was ready to make a difference. I felt very self-conscious about my breasts, because that was the first thing I lost when I lost almost 50 pounds (22.6 kg). Florida cities like Tampa and Miami have been attracting models, producers and talent scouts of the porn industry for years. So my biggest insecurity was my breasts, and I wanted to recover them. And once I did it (Khalifa underwent a cosmetic surgery operation), I began to attract all this attention from men and never got used to it. I felt that, unless I clung to that and did what was asked of me or what was expected of me, it would be insignificant. And after feeling what that validation and compliments was like, I didn't want that to end. You were a young graduate who wanted to find a job and a boy on the street told you he could work with you. He was sincere and said he was in the porn business. What made you feel attracted to this proposal? That was not how it happened. It wasn't "Hey, do you want to get into porn?" It was more a "You're beautiful, would you like to model a little? You know, you have a great body and I think you would be great at modeling." Things like that. And after I arrived at the studio, it was a very respectable place, a magnificent place in Miami, in Doral, Florida. It was clean. Everyone who worked there was friendly. All their cubicles were decorated with family photos. As if it were nothing doubtful or something that made me feel uncomfortable. The first time I entered was not the first time I filmed a porn movie. It was the second time. In the first one, it was more than signing the paperwork, etc.

DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE (The Brave Hearted Will Take Away the Bride)
Ok, so this was my second (which I should have watched first but oh well) Bollywood movie that I watched. Yep, the same two leads and I actually loved this movie one way or another. Lil synopsis: Raj (played by Shahrukh Khan) is known as the typical party goer. He fails in college but his father seems to take it in ease and then Raj tells his father that he wants to go to London in which, he does. While Simaran (played by Kajol) is your typical good girl. She has a dream of an unknown guy and is also wanting to go and explore London one last time before she is to be married off to her father's bestfriend's son, in which her father allows her to go. While Raj and Simran are at London, their paths cross and it wasn't "love at first sight". Raj would pull pranks on Simran and Simran hated him with a passion, that they both then fall in love. That is until Raj finds out that Simran is to be promised to another. Raj then goes to India, to claim his woman... but will he succeed??? This story and movie is one of the best... I loved it so much that I had to stop myself from singing Mere Khwabon Mein all the time in the house... bahahahaha. I also had to refrain myself from jumping up and down my bed and going outside to sing that song. This also taught me that, not all guys are douche bags as I always view them, bahahahaha. This is one of the "BEST" BOLLYWOOD movie, you should not miss out on. P.S I actually watched this movie cos of the two leads. They just have this chemistry that can't be reckoned with to be quite honest. ENJOOOOOOYYYYYYYYY XD
