Yesterday Rupert Murdoch unveiled plans to expand News Corp.'s business in India by buying up six new regional television channels, but despite the fact that his recently purchased Wall Street Journal is one of the only papers in a struggling business that's actually doing okay, and despite last year's reports that he was bring the U.K. tabloid the Sun to the subcontinent, he is not, he says, planning on acquiring or investing in any newspapers in India. Which is too bad, because imagine what Mumbai Post headlines would be like:

Aishwarya and Abhishek are Bachch-an!
Cops Get Criminal to SINGH
Just Delhi With It!

Whatever. Trust us, those jokes kill in Colaba.
