Hi, I am Meenal. I'm a travel enthusiast, a movie buff and a cricket fan all wrapped in one. I love to capture moments through my words. Writing is my happy space, it has been a great way of putting all my thoughts out and feel liberated.


  1. Having Depp in the 6th Pirates movie will only add value and revenue for Disney
    Not having him in the 6th Pitlrates movie would certainly translate to a FLOP for the movie
    Women love JDepp
    More so, they love Depp being Depp, as a not so perfect person

  2. We simply will not see any pirates movie in the future without Depp! He is the whole reason to watch it. You cannot recreate his same character with another actor. Just cannot be done!

  3. Not only would I love to see Jonny in the next Pirates of the Caribbean but, we his fans, are going to sink the movie if he is not in it.

    This movie is nothing without Jonny Depp.

  4. Leave J. Depp in the Caribbean movie. He is the character.
    The world is part of what makes actors but we all make mistakes with little to no support, let alone allowing them so small tokens of a real human life.

  5. The movies will fail without Depp, he makes the movies. Nobody else can do justice to the character and a movie without Jack Sparrow is not a movie I’d be interested in seeing.

    No Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp should finish the saga and Disney has to be real and support one
    good send of for Jack Sparrow.

  7. If you don’t have Depp in the 6th movie. It will not work out in the box office. I know so many that won’t go. And that’s not fair to the other actors

  8. Johnny Depp is Jack Sparrow and no one can replace him. I like the others feel Disney made a big mistake and what happened to innocent until proven quilty?????

    • Yes ma’am that is what I and millions of others have thought through out this misfortune. Praying for justice for Johnny and also for the real DV victims.
      God bless them all.

  9. I would absolutely love Johnny Depp to play in POTC NUMBER 6 NOBODY could EVERtake his place I would not go to see it. I don’t believe most of what Amber Heard says about him!!!!!

  10. Pirates of the Caribbean without Johnny Depp THAT’S LITERALLY THE ONLY REASON WHY I PERSONALLY GO TO SEE them… Not to mention aren’t pirates thieves scoundrels abusive people in the sense of the word and Disney is not given him the role because he is supposedly a rowdy non-s*** taking pushover and sticks up for himself and keeps positive attitude … grow up Disney….. Walt would be ashamed of you… Hope it bombs without him… And without fat or you should have called that p****y pirates of the Caribbean if you portray that pirates aren’t brutal thieves scoundrels All the above alcoholics degenerates but Johnny Depp gets accused of bunch of BS and you don’t back up your boy after making you so much money…

  11. Disney should honour the wishes of the fans regardless of recent events relating to his ex wife; and include Johnny Depp in future pirate films. I will not watch if he isn’t in them, it’s impossible to replace his character.
    I enjoy his humour and creativity but has an individual and this is what makes Jack Sparrow so special.
    To me Disneys decision should not be based on anything other than what their customers want.

  12. The kid’s will know at the hospital if it’s not Johnny Depp!!! Only one Jack Sparrow and that’s Johnny Depp

  13. I grew up watching Johnny Depp since he starred in Nightmare on Elm Street and 21 Jump Street series. I’ve seen all of his movies and not one of them has he ever portrayed himself as an abuser it’s not in him to physically or sexually assault or abuse anyone it’s not in his character even his ex of 25 years Vanessa listen to her she ought to know the real Johnny inside and out. However it’s just so easy for someone who’s only been with Johnny for a couple of years including a 15 month marriage, divorces him then throws him under the bus by slamming him in the media that he is a Wife Beater. Knowing that by accusing him publicly of being a physical and sexual abuser of women would destroy his acting career especially with Disney and The Pirates of the Carribean 6 and any other major film directors that might be looking at him. Think about that old saying, There’s Nothing Worse Than A Women Scorned. This women is out to destroy Johnny, his career and financial. She now feels that she has already destroyed his career with the Dec article in the Post, because Disney already stated that Johnny Depp wasn’t going to be in the Pirates 6 movie. Disney (the film makers for children,that tell you as children that everyone is INNOCENT until PROVEN GUILTY) made that clear to her that she won and that’s one thing that she can mark off her to do list. The next thing on her to do list is to financially destroy Johnny by winning her counter suit of $100 million. She has acted and lied and paid everyone she could to try to win her case and now it’s all left up to 7 people. All we can do is hope and pray that GOD leads them to make the right decision.

  14. Johnny MADE the pirates movies. I mean really now. He is an amazing leading man. Look at the massive career he has built. I’ve met him twice and he was so respectful, calm, laid back and kept it real. He is no abuser of anything, NOT kids, animals, women or people. So humble. He is a TRUE artist and a man for our time. He has no toxic masculinity. He should write an autobiography and teach the younger generations a few things about being a man. A hell of alot like Maynard J.K. They know how to be masculine without the toxic.
    He is an amazing musician too. Hollywood Vampires rock and he kicks ass with Jeff Beck or anyone he jams with.
    A true modern renaissance man. I truly hope that Amber will get some help and heal her narcissistic, abusive, feminine toxicity. I think more people(women and men) that have experienced this behavior, can see it and recognize it all to well. I truly hope she can heal and live her best life.
    And to Johnny, his family and friends, much love, respect and blessings.

  15. Johnny made you guys millions if not billions being Jack Sparrow. Yous bailed on him without any evidence, in his time of need. I hope you guys make it right with Johnny. It took the poor guy 6 years but he proved her to be a liar manipulater with no morals or boundaries to get her way. Please put Johnny back in Pirates 6,7,8 etc. Atleast make him a reasonable offer and give him the choice. Plus an apologize. I think yous jumped the gun on letting him go in the first place.
