While it's no hidden fact that 2018 seems to be just flying by, we personally felt that this month dragged us a bit, in comparison to the last month. We saw quite a few entries, many injuries and some damn good shows come and go.
But before we start with our wrap up, here are some highlights of this month.
Actress Mumun Dutta's father passed away on the 12th of this month. Our heartfelt condolences to the actress.
In a very sad turn of events, actor Ankita Bhargava suffered a miscarriage.
We had some very very key ENTRIES this month:
One of the biggest entries happened in the form of actor Kunal Karan Kapoor stepping in as the new lead of Woh Apna Sa. Nisha Nagpal entered Ishq Subhan Allah as the new vamp, Ankit Siwach and Srishty Rode entered Ishqbaaaz, Ishant Bhanushali entered Roop - Mard Ka Naya Swaroop as a bully, Armaan Tahil entered Tu Aashiqui, Kiran Janjani, Mahesh Thakur and Swati Kapoor entered Udaan, Keith Sequeira entered Dil Hi Toh Hai in a cameo role, Ashita Dhawan entered Khichdi just before it went off air, Vishal Aditya Singh will soon enter Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala in a coveted role, Shamin Manan entered Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki, which also serves as her COMEBACK to the screens after 4 years, Karan Khanna re-entered Ishqbaaaz, Rajeshwari Sachdev entered Dil Hi Toh Hai as Poonam Dhillon's replacement and Ishqbaaaz' Dadi Navindra Behl was first REPLACED in the show by Veena Mehta but the former entered the show again and REPLACED Veena.
Here are some minimal EXITS:

Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki as their tracks came to an end, Veena Mehta who had replaced Navindra Behl also made an exit from the show owing to Navindra's return, Poonam Dhillon quit Dil Hi Toh Hai as her character was not shaping up according to her expectations and actor Mihir Mishra's track as Prithvi in Ishq Mein Marjawan came to an end this month.

Along with this, we have Sab TV's Partners and Shriman Shrimati Phir Se due to not so encouraging' response and another Star Plus show Khichdi that was pulled off air due to falling numbers (blame it on the IPL telecast schedule).

What was BIZZARE this month:
In a weird case of fans going crazy, two juvenile boys ran away from their home in Rajasthan and came to Mumbai to meet Dilip Joshi. And while Dilip was overwhelmed with the love that he was receiving, he also mentioned how fans should not do such things and put themselves in harm's way.
In a bizzare turn of events, Naagin3's official poster was altered for the telecast in Pakistan wherein, Surbhi's bare back in the official had a pallu' photoshopped on it.
We have a lot of INJURED actors this month:

And how can CONTROVERSIES lag behind:
Bigg Boss Season 7 fame Armaan Kohli shot back into the limelight again for having beaten up his girlfriend Neeru Randhawa. He was arrested from his farmhouse and his bail plea too was rejected by the court.
Kunal Verma confessed to Rajeev Khandelwal before the shoot for the latter's show Juzz Baatt began,that he was not invited on the show as a guest on his own right and that his huge ego' was the reason for his discomfort on the set.
Last week the entertainment industry was shocked with the news about yet another fall out between Mama-Bhanja jodi Govinda and Krushna Abhishek. However, with both parties not willing to take the first step, it rift seems to be irreconcilable.Well, eventful much, wasn't it?
