Bollywoood mimicks life or life mimicks Bollywood? It is a question that has bothered us for long. To be honest, we don’t know the answer either but we do know in some cases the real life surely helped in the publicity of Bollywood films.Whether it a wedding just when a film about weddings is to be released or the real-life controversial affairs being brought on screen, here are 5 instances where real life events contributed to the publicity of Bollywood films. Take a look!Veere Di WeddingWhether it’s a happy coincidence or a perfectly timed and thought out strategy, but o one can disagree that Sonam’s big fat wedding and the release date of her film Veere Di Wedding, which about weddings, of course, being so close to each other is surely going to help in the publicity of the film.Jab We MetWhen Kareena Kapoor started dating Shahid Kapoor, Bollywood found its favorite couple in them. From the very beginning of their relationships, they were open about it and spoke freely about their love for each other. Thus, when the rumor of their break up started doing rounds, the Bollywood fans were shocked. Although their breakup broke up many hearts, their film Jab We Met got the full advantage of the situation as this was the film during which the break up happened while the shooting of this film and the film was also about relationships, breaks up and heartbreaks.Jab Tak Hai JaanThis was probably one of the most unfortunate events of all in the history of Bollywood. The king of romance, director Yash Chopra passed away after the completion of the film but before it could be released. An eternal love story that suited the Yash Chopra brand of romance, a part of Jab Tak Hai Jaan’s success can be attributed to the fact that it happened to be the last film directed by Yash Chopra.SilsilaIt was one risky venture for sure! The film was released when the rumors of Rekha-Amitabh link up was its height. The film almost replicated the real-life love triangle between Rekha, Amitabh and Jaya on screen and the film majorly benefitted from the controversy.ArthApart from the masterpiece of a film that it was, the fact that it was a film made by Mahesh Bhatt that closely resembled Parveen Babi’s life, with whom Mahesh Bhatt had a stormy affair was any way creating a buzz. But the fact that it coincided with Parveen Babi leaving Bollywood and going to the US seek inner peace in an ashram also majorly contributed to the success of the film.

Some love him, some adore him and some simply worship him. It is probably safe to say that of all Bollywood stars, Salman Khan has the most loyal fan base. His unique style and persona have made him one of the biggest superstar of our generation. Salman beating up baddies, kicking up a storm, firing bullets or making witty wisecracks are what Bhai fans live by and it is this craze which has led to a situation where we have forgotten that flop films even existed in Salman’s filmography.But even after all the fandom, one common complaint against Salman is his refusal to serve us variety. He has created a zone for himself and rarely steps out of it. But can we blame him fornot experimenting with his roles?Because every time he has done something different than beating up baddies and cracking jokes, the films have been utter disappointments. Here are 5 flop films of Salman Khan that will tell you why he does not experiment with his roles.TubelightOne of Salman Khan recent disappointments,Tubelightwas not as popular with Bhai fans. He played a simpleton with the innocence of a child who sets out to bring back his brother who has gone to fight in the Sino-Indian War. Although the film managed to make money at the box-office, it was not liked by most Bhai fans.Jaan-E-MannShirish Kunder’s directorial debut was a complete disaster. The film which was done in a style of a musical failed to have any effect on audience apart from boring them to death. It was nothing like anything Salman Khan had tried his hands on previously and looking at the fate of the film we totally understand. Nobody wants anotherJaan-E-Mann!VeerThis was one film that Salman Khan even turned a writer for. But despite all the hype, the period drama had a dismal run at the box-office. Quite understandably we have never seen Salman Khan in any period drama afterVeer.Main Aur Mrs. KhannaIt is hard to imagine, but yes Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor did a film that tried to portray the complications of marriage! Needless to say,Main Aur Mrs. Khannais one of the biggest disappointments of Salman and Kareena’s career and Salman since then we have not seen Salman doing anything on the similar lines.London Dreams and YuvvraajIt is probably safe to assume that people do not like Salman Khan as a musician in films. Apart fromHum Dil De Chuke Sanam, the two other films in which he played musicians,London DreamsandYuvvraaj both failed miserably. Even the extra v and a could not save them. We guess Bhai fans doesn’t even like music to steal focus from Salman!
