When Apple made the declaration about its iOS 14, the new OS for iPhones back in the month of June 2020, there was scores of social media gossip around the technology firm taking heavy “motivations” from its competitor Google Android.
While traits like home screen widgets and picture-in-picture backing particularly bagged the loudest applaud on the micro blogging site Twitter from Apple buffs, these characteristics had already been native to Android handsets, something the users didn’t shy away from retelling their competing iOS counterpart.
But did you know it’s not just Android that Apple took its inspirations from? In fact, Apple watched the 2008 Bollywood movie Chamku before coming up with its very own wireless Bluetooth earbuds called AirPods in 2016.

The now-viral tweet, which trended in the country on Monday, boats of a still from Chamku, a 2008 Bollywood flick that has PeeCee, Irrfan Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, and Danny Denzongpa.
In the meantime, in a recent media talk, Bobby Deol stated that it took him some time to agree to take the element that he would have to accept characters lesser than the lead.
“I used to be a big star once upon a time but things didn’t work out. My market value went down. I went through a phase where I couldn’t understand why this happened and I started giving up,” Bobby told IANS.

Bobby added that when his children questioned why he was staying at his home, he realized that it was an accurate time to return to work.
“When I saw my kids noticing me sitting at home, it dawned on me that I am an actor and my job is to perform and play characters, and not just the main lead. As an actor, I realized that I needed to prove myself and that’s how I started looking at things,” he said.
