#10yearChallenge: SRK-Anushka Sharma, Race to Race 3, Taimur's Tashan - Here's what changed in 10 years!

Social media can give you crazy ideas. Since morning, a hashtag called #10YearChallenge is going viral. So the deal is, you have to post a picture of yourself which is 10 years old and put it next to the one you clicked in 2019. Now you know why your timeline on social media is filled with these before-after pictures of everyone. People are blaming Facebook’s memories feature for starting this trend. Anyway, we saw an opportunity here to tell you what happened 10 years back in Bollywood. We are talking films here!

So we go back to 2008. If you are wondering why not 2009, because mathematics suggest it should be 2009, well, there is a reason! As per the internet definition of this challenge, as reported by GQ, “The latest internet frenzy movement involves posting a picture of yourself that was taken 10 years ago (2007-2009) and placing it next to one that is taken in 2019.” So we are absolutely on track to take up 2008. In fact, we are glad it’s that year because it has been a really interesting year and when we compared it with 2018, it turned out to be a treasure trove.

Let us tell you how…

Racing to nothingness…

2008: Race

2018: Race 3

Race, the first film in this racy franchise released in 2008 and remains the best one in the series, 10 years later. In 2018, Race 3 released which didn’t have any similarity with the first film. From Abbas-Mustan, the directors’ baton went to Remo D’Souza, Salman Khan replaced Saif Ali Khan and there were a host of other actors in the team. While Saif’s Race is still hailed, Race 3 will always be remembered for the memes that took off after the trailer release which are more interesting than the film.

Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma – Hit se flop tak!

2008: Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

2018: Zero

Anushka debuted opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi where the actor played a nerdy, geeky character who decides to have a separate life as a stud to please his wife. 10 years later, Zero released which had Anushka and Shah Rukh in love but then Mars happened. Aditya Chopra’s third film in 2008 created good buzz but 2018 turned out to be a dampener for them. So in 10 years, they went from a hit jodi to a flop one!

Aamir Khan – Ghajini thugs!

2008: Ghajini

2018: Thugs of Hindostan

Thugs Of Hindostan was Aamir Khan’s biggest setback in 10 years… Yes, because 10 years back he had delivered Bollywood’s first Rs 100 crore film – Ghajini!

Kareena Kapoor-Taimur

2008: Tashan

2018: Taimur

It was rumoured that Kareena and Saif Ali Khan‘s romance blossomed on the sets of Tashan. 10 years later, they are happily married and are parents to the biggest social media sensation called Taimur. There is no Khan as popular as him and he is all of 2 years old!

Ranbir-Deepika to Ranveer-Deepika

2008: Bachna Ae Haseeno

2018: Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone get married

Bachna Ae Haseeno was Ranbir and Deepika’s first release together. It was said that they were dating during the filming of the film. In 2018, Ranveer and Deepika got married and now they are the couple we all would love to end up as.

Priyanka Chopra – Love Story se Shaadi Tak!

2008: Love Story 2050

2018: Nickyanka 2018

We made a futuristic film way back in 2008… BEAT THAT! But the fact that it had Harman Baweja as the hero, didn’t really make anyone happy even though Priyanka Chopra looked really cool with that red hair. 10 years later, she is married to Nick Jonas.

Superheroes from Hollywood will always rule!

2008: Drona

2018: Avengers Infinity War

Nothing changed in 10 years! Superheroes film work in India only if they come from Hollywood with Krrish 3 being the only exception. We tried our hands at it in 2008 with Drona and Abhishek Bachchan… Well, you know the rest! In 2018, Avengers Infinity War became the third highest grossing film of the year! That says it all!

Wow… and poof!

2008: Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na

2018: Na Jaane Kahan Hain

It took Imran Khan, one of the most promising newcomers of 2008, just 10 years to fall off the filmi radar. His last release was Katti Batti! As for Genelia D’souza, her last release was Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya with her husband Riteish Deshmukh. We aren’t counting the cameos here, please!

We are pretty sure there will be more such instances but these are what left us really amused!
