DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?
1. A film starring the body-double of Shah Rukh Khan won an award at a German film festival.
2. Tired of having to take out his vaccination certificate at airports and other places, comedian Atul Khatri reprinted the certificate on a white T-shirt.
3. The University of Illinois System announced that it would open offices in New Delhi and Bangalore to recruit students and build relationships with academic and corporate partners.
4. Telugu star Nandamuri Balakrishna caused a stir when he said of music composer AR Rahman: “He won an Oscar and I don’t even know who he is.”
5. AR Rahman responded with a tweet that said, “I don’t even know myself sometimes.”
(1, 2, 3 and 4 really happened)
