For the modern age where we just can’t accept a “NO” and being relegated to the friend zone can be the ‘worst’ thing a woman can do to a man…
Gone are the days when someone would be rejected for a romantic relationship and would distance themselves from the one who doesn’t feel that way, (think Devdas!) because they knew that the other person doesn’t owe them shit.
Welcome to a place in time where the one who refuses has wronged you and owes you a “yes”.
Here are some fun facts for those interested to explore the latest phenomenon, friend zone, which, unfortunately, does not really exist:
The friend zone is not the new equivalent of ‘unrequited love’. Unrequited love is “my unilateral crush is my problem”. Friend zone is “my unilateral crush is your problem”.
Let’s just stop calling Anjali from Kuchh Kuchh Hota Hai a woman who got ‘friend-zoned’. Why? Because she didn’t complain about it.
Most of these ‘good guys’ are not even in the friend zone. They are in the “oh no not this guy again” zone.
When he says you ‘friend-zoned’ him and his friends bully you into “trying it with him,” tell him he is out of the friend zone. Tell him he just entered the ‘enemy-zone’.
Think getting ‘friend-zoned’ is bad? Imagine realising that your close friend only wanted to screw you all this time.
Be a ‘slut’ when you say yes. Be the one who ‘friend-zones’ when you say no.
Do women request men to stay in a zone called ‘friend’? No. They do that to themselves.

It’s sickening to watch habitual offenders like Sajid Khan crying on national television for being out of work for 4 years. Really, now Sajid’s playing the victim card?
Big Boss 16’s notorious host, Salman Khan and the Colors Channel has welcomed with open arms filmmaker and comedian Sajid Khan, who’s accused of sexual abuse by not one, two or three, but nine women to date, on the show.
Make no mistake, Sajid Khan’s participation is the digital equivalent of flashing his dick to the world, especially to his victims.
Saloni Chopra, film journalist, recalls her horrific hiring interview with Sajid, and much more, in this piece. Here’s a sample of completely unrelated questions that Sajid asked her.
There was a dainty figure sitting on a bench. A girl bundled in a black shawl. And then a shadow emerged from the darkness. He stopped, as he spotted the girl. He approached her, hovered around her.
It was a cold, foggy night, and a stunned silence stretched across the deserted railway station. The only working yellow light seemed like a blotch in the air. There was no hint of life except a black dog that just lumbered past as though it sniffed some danger.
No, wait! There was a dainty figure sitting on a bench. A girl bundled in a black shawl. And then a shadow emerged from the darkness. He stopped, as he spotted the girl. He approached her, hovered around her.
‘Hey!’ The man said and settled beside her.
