Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor slams troll who said 'Kab tak apne baap ke paise se...'

Actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor is back at giving befitting replies to internet trolls, and here’s the latest one that’s brought him into the headlines. The ‘Mirzya’ actor was commenting on the football club Manchester City, when an X user out of nowhere attacked him in the comments section, resulting in a reply from Harsh.  Harsh posted, “Manchester City .. like a ponzi scam .. one day the bubble will burst all the lies will be revealed .. pep will leave and they will fade.. they don’t have many real fans they don’t have a real history.. just hope when they fade were In a good place to dominate for a few years.” An X user commented on the post, “L*** kabhi ek dhang ki film karle kab tak apne baap ke paise se sneakers kharidta rahega ch****e.” (Do a great movie sometime, how long will you keep buying sneakers with your father's money, you idiot.) Harsh replied, “Where can I watch your films ? How many have you done? I’ve done Ray thar bhavesh joshi and Ak vs ak , mirzya .. who are you? An irrelevant loser who’s bitter on twitter who started supporting city once they got Rich with Arab money..” Where can I watch your films ? How many have you done ? I’ve done Ray thar bhavesh joshi and Ak vs ak , mirzya .. who are you ? An irrelevant loser who’s bitter on twitter who started supporting city once they got Rich with Arab money .. — Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor (@HarshKapoor_) April 18, 2024 Earlier in a similar incident, Harsh revealed why he chooses to reply to faceless trolls on social media. He said, "The only difference is I never instigate it... I do my own thing, but if someone is logging onto Twitter, going on my page to quote tweet me and simultaneously trying to low blow me (contradictory from them, by the way), I'll say what I want to them if I'm in the mood." Notably, Harsh Varrdhan made his Bollywood debut with director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's film 'Mirzya' in 2016 which failed to impress the audience at the box office. In 2022, he shared screen space with his father Anil Kapoor in 'Thar' alongside Fatima Sana Shaikh. Helmed by Raj Singh Chaudhary, the film premiered on the OTT platform Netflix which got decent responses from the audience. Harsh Varrdhan was also seen in 'Bhavesh Joshi Superhero', which was released in 2018. In the coming months, he will be seen essaying the role of Olympic gold medallist shooter Abhinav Bindra in his biopic. (With inputs from Agencies)

'I was brain damaged': Tanishaa Mukerji recalls falling from a mountain

Bollywood actress Tanishaa Mukerji, who didn’t taste the same amount of success and stardom as her sister Kajol, recalls the time she had a horrific accident while shooting her debut film ‘Sssshhh…’. Directed by Pavan S. Kaul, the slasher film also featured Karan Nath and Dino Morea. In an interview with News 18, Tanishaa said, “I was brain damaged. I fell off a mountain and I had a massive concussion. For pretty much one year of my life, I had to go for regular EEGs because you have to check if the swelling in my brain had reduced. It took one year for it to actually come back to its normal size.” “I didn’t tell anybody this but I did have a lot of difficulty because I was shooting my first film. I used to literally shoot for 2 hours and sleep for 3 hours. I would literally shoot for 2 hours because it would be so hectic and I would pass out. I wouldn’t be able to stay awake because my brain was exhausted,” she added.  Over the years, Tanishaa went on to do films like 'Neal 'n' Nikki', 'Sarkar', and 'Tango Charlie' to name a few.  Tanishaa, who was away from the silver screen for a long time, returned in 2021 with a spy thriller titled 'Code Name Abdul'. Talking about her reason for being away from films Tanishaa told ANI, "I don't think that's a conscious choice. That just happened by default, when these things happen...I think there has been a break in my released films, but I haven't taken a break from acting." On the work front, Tanishaa will be seen in ‘Luv You Shankar’ alongside Shreyas Talpade. Directed by filmmaker Rajiv S Ruia, the film also stars Sanjay Mishra, Elakshi Gupta, Abhimanyu Singh, Hemant Pandey, Master Mann Gandhi, and Prateek Jain. Tanishaa told IANS, "Being a part of 'Luv You Shankar' has been a truly fulfilling experience. It's a film that celebrates the human spirit and the power of love, and I'm excited for audiences to embark on this divine journey with us." The film will be released on April 19.

Get Malaika Arora's sexy summer white dress for less than Rs 10,000

Bollywood style icon and fashionista Malaika Arora set the internet ablaze with her latest Instagram post. The gorgeous mama shared scintillating pictures wearing a white one-shoulder fishtail maxi dress exuding summer vibes. Malaika’s couture option is not that heavy on the pockets either and can easily be a wardrobe addition for a party this season. The Katarina dress by Club L London costs around Rs 9,350 but is currently on sale at Rs 5,500.  Check out the pictures below.            View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Malaika Arora (@malaikaaroraofficial) Growing up, fashion has always been a form of self-expression for Malaika. She told, “I was drawn to its power to convey emotions, attitudes, and cultural influences. It's like wearable art that allows me to showcase my personality and creativity.” As an OG fashionista from the 90s, Malaika says the evolution of fashion has been fascinating. Explaining her take on the transition in the arena, she said, “From the minimalistic chic to the bold, expressive trends of today, it's been quite a ride. A significant one has been the advent of inclusivity and diversity, both in terms of representation and design aesthetics, which I wholeheartedly embrace.” Fashion is more accessible now. However, back in the day when there was no social media, “staying ahead of trends required a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of fashion's cyclical nature,” said Malaika.  She asserted, “It involved immersing myself in various cultural influences, from magazines and runways to street style and travel experiences. Networking with industry insiders and trusting my instincts also played pivotal roles in staying ahead of the curve.” Meanwhile, on the work front, Malaika was recently seen judging the reality show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' with actor Arshad Warsi and choreographer Farah Khan. She recently featured in her son Arhaan Khan's podcast called 'Dumb Biryani'. Arhaan has collaborated with his two other friends, Arush Verma and Dev Raiyani, for the six-part series which has cameos by various celebs from the entertainment world.  Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan had Arhaan in 2002. They parted ways after almost 18 years of marriage. She is currently dating actor Arjun Kapoor, while Arbaaz is married to makeup artist Sshura.

Our family has been taken aback by this shocking incident that took place. Unfortunately some people claiming to be close to our family and pretending to be the spokesperson have been making loose statements to the media saying it's all a publicity stunt and the family remains unaffected which is not true and these views should not be taken seriously.  “No member of the Salim Khan family has made any statement regarding this incident to the media.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga hits back at 'Kabir Singh' actor Adil Hussain

Seasoned actor Adil Hussain, who is known for films like ‘Taare Zameen Par’, ‘Life of Pi’, and ‘English Vinglish’ to name a few, made startling comments on being a part of the 2019 film ‘Kabir Singh’ starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani. However, the statements made by Adil caught the attention of the film’s director Sandeep Reddy Vanga who hit back.  On the YouTube channel AP Podcast, Adil said, “That’s the only film in my life that I have done without reading the script, without seeing the movie which it is based on. I regret it till today. The only movie I have regretted doing is that film… Kabir Singh."  Adil plays Shahid’s professor in the film and asserts that he walked out of the film and fears his wife's reaction if she happens to watch it. Speaking about Sandeep, he said, “I think a film like this, it celebrates something which is not beneficial for the society. It legitimizes male misogyny. It legitimizes violence against anybody for that matter, doesn’t have to be a woman. And it celebrates it, it glorifies it and it should not be glorified.” Sandeep took to X, formerly Twitter, and shared the video of the interview and wrote, “Ur 'belief' in 30 art films didn't get as much fame to u as ur 'regret' of 1 BLOCKBUSTER film did. I regret casting u, knowing that ur greed is bigger than ur passion. NOW I'll save U from the shame by replacing Ur face with AI help. Now smile properly.”  'Kabir Singh', which emerged as Shahid's biggest hit of his career, was a remake of 'Arjun Reddy'. Both 'Arjun Reddy' and 'Kabir Singh' were directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who made a hattrick of blockbusters with his recent directorial, the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer 'Animal'.  Meanwhile, Adil Hussain will next be seen in 'Ulajh' which stars Janhvi Kapoor and Gulshan Devaiah. The film follows the journey of a young diplomat, who, belongs to a prominent family of patriots, and finds herself embroiled in a dangerous personal conspiracy while far from her home turf, at a career-defining post.

ED attaches property worth Rs 98 crore of Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra

It's been months since Raj Kundra dropped wearing his extravagant masks to hide his face from the paparazzi following his jail time in the Mumbai porn racket case, and now the businessman and his star wife Shilpa Shetty have landed themselves once again on the crime radar. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday said it has attached a bungalow and a flat, apart from equity shares, worth about Rs 98 crore of Shilpa and Raj in connection with a money-laundering case linked to the Rs 6,600 crore Bitcoin scam. As per PTI, the federal agency has issued a provisional order under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to attach the couple’s properties.  Shilpa and Raj’s legal representative said no prima facie case has been made out against his clients and that they would cooperate with the authorities. The money-laundering case stems from FIRs lodged by the Maharashtra Police and Delhi Police against a company named Variable Tech Private Limited, late Amit Bhardwaj, Ajay Bhardwaj, Vivek Bhardwaj, Simpy Bhardwaj, Mahender Bhardwaj and several multi-level marketing agents who are alleged to have collected huge amounts of funds in the form of Bitcoins (worth Rs 6,600 crore in 2017) from the public with the "false promise" of 10 percent monthly return in the form of Bitcoins. The ED alleged that Bitcoins were supposed to be utilised for mining and investors were supposed to get huge returns in crypto assets. Still, the promoters "cheated" them and have been concealing the "ill-gotten" Bitcoins in obscure online wallets. Kundra, the agency alleged, received 285 Bitcoins from the "mastermind" and promoter of the Gain Bitcoin Ponzi "scam", Amit Bhardwaj, for "setting up a Bitcoin mining farm in Ukraine".These Bitcoins were sourced out of the "proceeds of crime" collected by Amit Bhardwaj from gullible investors, it said. "Since the deal did not materialise, Kundra is still in possession and enjoyment of 285 Bitcoins which are presently valued at more than Rs 150 crore," the ED claimed. Shilpa tied the knot with businessman Raj Kundra on November 22, 2009. In May 2012, the two became parents to a son Viaan. And in February 2020 the couple welcomed Samisha, who was born via surrogacy. (With inputs from Agencies)

Parineeti Chopra

Parineeti Chopra says actors need to be in 'cliques and camps' to get roles

Parineeti Chopra is currently basking in the success of her recently released film 'Amar Singh Chamkila' where she essayed the role of slain singer Amarjot Kaur, wife of singer Chamkila. In a recent interview, the actress spoke about the lack of opportunities and wrong career decisions that kept her away from doing fulfilling roles.  Talking to Bollywood Hungama, Parineeti said that she lost out on projects because of a lack of socializing. "I don’t go to dinners and lunches or attend parties where work opportunities are created in Bollywood or those roles are discussed. I want directors and producers to call me for my work because I am willing to work hard. I won a National Award for Ishaqzaade 10 years ago. I am still the same actor." Parineeti Chopra who is the cousin of actress Priyanka Chopra admits, "My PR game sucks".  "Getting work in Bollywood doesn’t only depend on merit or acting, you have to be in cliques and camps to get roles. I am not present at the right place at the right time. I am not getting papped every day," she said.  Parineeti further highlighted the system of lobbying in the film industry. “I want to be the voice for actors who aren’t parts of cliques and camps. I hope we break this system of lobbying in Bollywood because I want equal opportunities and work. I may have done the wrong films, but I am the same actor who started 10 years ago and is in search of the right platform,” she said. For the film, Parineeti had to gain 15 kilos. The actor revealed that she couldn’t take up any other project during that time and didn’t make enough public appearances or did brand shoots. After the release of 'Amar Singh Chamkila' on Netflix, Parineeti took to social media to share BTS pictures from the film.            View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by @parineetichopra Before 'Chamkila', Parineeti Chopra was praised for her performance in the film 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar'. The latter was directed by Dibakar Banerjee while Chamkila was directed by Imtiaz Ali. “Dibakar Banerjee and Imtiaz sir are similar. They’re not seen everywhere, every day. They cast me for my work and saw the actor in me. Meri pichli do filmein flop thi (My last two films flopped) but they didn’t look at my market value,” said Parineeti.
