Social Media Challenges That Kept Us Entertained During Lockdown




This global shutdown made our lives very uncertain and while everyone was forced to stay at home, social media sites were our salvation! Talented producers of content and influencers created some beautiful social media challenges to keep us entertained. People have had the ability to become as innovative as they can and that has led to the birth of some of the most interesting digital challenges ever seen! Moreover, some challenges were so eye catching and fun that they instantly went viral!

Social Media Challenges


Here’s a close look at these Social Media Challenges

Don’t Rush Challenge

Don’t Rush challenge was very popular among the crowd as a gold mine for innovative challenges. A individual has passed a brushed on them, they start with a natural look and then glam up completely after the camera is momentarily covered with the brush. We should be tossing the brush at someone else after that. A lot of girl gangs around the world have been trying this challenge.

Don’t Leave Me Challenge

The simple idea behind this challenge is to share a pun or bad joke after it while running away from the camera with Don’t Leave Me.‘ We assure you that these videos can at the same time cause you to nod your head and laugh over it.

The Savage Challenge

As soon as the single Savagedropped, people couldn’t resist shaking a leg to it. However, when the savage remix was made it just went up a notch and legendary Beyonce was a part of it!

The SuperBowl Challenge

Two legendary singers, JLo and Shakira, appeared on the SuperBowl ceremony. Their dance sequence, which was choreographed by none other than the Royal Family themselves, went viral. It had mind blowing steps which the internet went crazy upon lately.

Wipe It Down challenge

This mission to Wipe It Down is super easy and entertaining. Essentially the video begins with someone wearing one outfit and their wardrobe is absolutely transformed as soon as they clean the mirror off!

Beauty Mode Challenge

One such trending challenge is what holds boredom at bay! We were all day in our pyjamas during this
lockout so TikTokers came up with a bright new idea. There was a sound called Beauty Modeon TikTok and it was used by people to change their looks. 

Drop Challenge

The famous Drop challenge was inspired by Shaggy’s latest track ‘Banana.’ The song was very unique to the content creator community and with funky sunglasses and fun moves so many people attempted the Drop challenge.

Oh Na Na Challenge

This famous and catchy song was one of the key reasons this dance challenge got so much momentum. It’s a wild and quirky routine that will make you feel like a dancing pro!

The Vogue Challenge

The Vogue challenge has gone absolutely viral in India. Also,  globally as it has offered a chance to showcase their talent to aspiring fashionistas and makeup artists. Everybody had their own take on how the cover should be!

The Nepometer Of Bollywood



The Nepometer Of Bollywood

The untimely death of Sushant Singh Rajput is proving out to be a catalyst for a major change in Bollywood. Similarly, one such change is Nepometer Of Bollywood. Read here to know more about it.

The Idea of Nepometer of Bollywood

This idea is of Sushant Singh Rajput’s brother in law, Vishal Kirti. Recently, he made an announcement informing the launch of Nepometer in Bollywood. In addition, he will also be launching a website for the same.

Nepometer relates to the issue and controversy of Nepotism in Bollywood.

What does The Nepometer Of Bollywood do?

The Nepometer of Bollywood will give ratings to every movie. The meter will let the audiences know the quotient of nepotism in a particular movie. For instance, audiences will get to know if the stars and the backing of the movie come from industry connections.

Credits: Nepometer Twitter

For example, a movie like Thappad will not have a very high rating on the Nepometer. However, a movie like Kalank will have a high rating on the Nepometer. Consequently, this is because the movie is backed by Karan Johar. In addition, the movie also has star kids like Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. However, in the case of ‘outsiders’, the rating will be lower.

Here is a little peak at the way Nepometer Works

Nepometer Of Bollywood

Credits: Nepometer, Twitter

How Nepometer Of Bollywood Works?

To show the audience how the Nepometer actually works, the makers released a Nepometer analysis of the upcoming movie Sadak 2.  The team of the platform rated the movie in 5 different aspects. The rating is given on the basis of who the producer of the movie, the writer, the actors (leads) as well as the supporting actors are. According to their analysis, 4 of these 5 categories for Sadak 2 have Bollywood family members involved.

Nepometer Of Bollywood

The platform is already gaining a lot of support. The website already has more than 18 thousand people following it. Well, all this definitely brings out a new hope of change in Bollywood. Therefore, taking steps towards appreciation of talent in Bollywood rather than appreciation of connections.

Towards A Good Time

The debate on Nepotism has been going on for a long time. It definitely gained momentum from Kangana Ranaut going on Koffee with Karan and bashing the host himself for supporting and promoting Nepotism in the industry. In addition, more and more stars started to talk about the issue thereafter.

The issue became a more hot topic following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. A rising actor with a storehouse of talent. For instance, not just in acting he was also curious and had many more talents. For example, he was an extremely smart person, intelligent, well-read in Indian and Western philosophies, trained to fly planes and preparing for NASA’s space mission. In addition, he was also actively involved in charitable activities. However, his death raised suspicions. Not only was it unnatural. It was also unforeseen and still hard to digest.

A lot of facts also point towards a foul play at the background. In addition, a major reason for his depression was  Nepotism. To stop others from succumbing to such situations and as a tribute to our beloved SSR, the brother in law has come up with this website.
