Bigg Boss 16 fame Archana Gautam buys a house in Mumbai Talking about buying a new house, Archana Gautam shared, “I am very happy to have my own house in Mumbai. But I would like to share one thing with you that more than buying a house in Mumbai, it is a challenge to decide the interiors of the house. Maine socha tha ghar le lungi toh sab theek hojaayega but deciding the interiors of the house is the most difficult aspect (sic.)” Elaborating on why she's facing such a difficult time with the interiors, she shared, “When you select things for your house, your brain stops functioning and you become clueless. You find everything nice and good and there’s always a tension hovering on your head that once everything is done how my house would finally look like. Joh sabse zyada tension de raha hai Mujhe after buying the house is the interior designing. But then I calm myself down thinking that this is just a matter of 2-3 months. I am very happy that I have achieved this milestone of having a house in Mumbai of my own (sic.)” “Everyone is helping with interior designing. Sometimes when I’m not available, my mom goes to finalise things. My interior designer also travels from Pune to finalise things. Everyone is putting their effort into making my house a beautiful space,” she added. Archana dished about the colour scheme she wants for her new home, “I want to have a white themed house. I want to keep it simple and off-white theme is very natural. It also makes your house look spacious. This I’ve kept in mind. Also, I plan to have different themes in different rooms. Let’s see how my house turns out to be (sic.)”

Zeenat Aman responds to Mumtaz

Zeenat Aman responds to Mumtaz: I’ve never been one to tear down my colleagues

It was just yesterday when Mumtaz slammed her Hare Rama Hare Krishna co-star Zeenat Aman for giving the younger generation advice about living together before getting married. Mumtaz was of the opinion that Zeenat is not in a position to give anyone relationship advice as “her own marriage was a living hell.” Zeenat Aman responds to Mumtaz In light of this, the Hindustan Times reached out to Zeenat Aman to see if she had anything to say about the comment. "Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I’ve never been one to comment on others personal lives or tear down my colleagues, and I’m not going to start now." Zeenat Aman said. But what led to this? Well, in an interview with Zoom, Mumtaz said, “Zeenat should be careful with what she is advising. She has all of a sudden come into this huge social media popularity, and I can understand her excitement about sounding like a cool aunty. But giving advice that is counter to our moral values is not the solution to increasing your following. She knew Mazhar Khan for years before marrying him. Her marriage was a living hell. She should be the last person doling out advice on relationships.” Zeenat's post which triggered a strong reaction from Mumtaz read, "One of you asked me about relationship advice in the comments section of my last post. Here's a personal opinion I haven't previously shared - if you're in a relationship, I strongly recommend that you LIVE TOGETHER before getting married. This is the same advice l've always given my sons, both of whom have had, or are in, a live-in relationship. It just seems logical to me that before two people get their families and the government involved in their equation, they first put their relationship to the ultimate test." "It's easy to be the best version of yourself for a few hours a day. But can you share a bathroom? Weather the storm of a bad mood? Agree on what to eat for dinner every night? Keep the fire alive in the bedroom? Work through the million tiny conflicts that inevitably arise between two people in close proximity? In short - are you actually compatible?" she further said in the post.

The video going viral on Twitter shows Aamir wearing a blue t-shirt and is seen asking the viewers about the missing Rs 15 lakh from their account.  भारत का हर नागरिक लखपति है क्योंकि सबके पास काम से कम 15 लाख तो होने ही चाहिए ..क्या कहा आपके अकाउंट में 15 लाख नहीं है..तो आपके 15 लाख गए कहां ???तो ऐसे जुमलेबाजों से रहे सावधान नहीं तो होगा तुम्हारा नुकसान🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳देशहित में जारी🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/hJkEFEL5vG — Mini Nagrare (@MiniforIYC) April 14, 2024 An official statement by Aamir Khan’s spokesperson read, “We want to clarify that Mr. Aamir Khan has never endorsed any political party throughout his 35-year career. He has dedicated his efforts to raising public awareness through Election Commission public awareness campaigns for many past elections. We are alarmed by the recent viral video alleging that Aamir Khan is promoting a particular political party. He would like to clarify that this is a fake video and totally untrue. He has reported the matter to various authorities related to this issue, including filing an FIR with the Cyber Crime Cell of the Mumbai Police.” The spokesperson further stated that Aamir would like to urge all Indians to come out and vote and be an active part of the electoral process. The general elections for 543 Lok Sabha seats will be held in seven phases, with the first scheduled for April 19. The counting of votes has been scheduled for June 4. Nearly 97 crore voters will be eligible to get their fingers inked as polling is held for 543 Lok Sabha constituencies across the country.

Preity Zinta, Shabana Azmi, Karan Deol, and Ali Fazal are also a part of the film. Sunny and Aamir have never worked together before this. But the duo have had very iconic box-office clashes as competitors in the past, where both have eventually emerged victorious. The first iconic clash at the ticket window was witnessed in 1990 when Aamir Khan's Dil and Sunny Deol's Ghayal were released on the same day. Then in 1996, it was 'Raja Hindustani' vs 'Ghatak' followed by the most epic Box Office clash of Indian cinema in 2001 when 'Lagaan' was released on the same day as 'Gadar'. 'Lahore, 1947' also marks the reunion of Aamir Khan and Santoshi after their iconic cult classic, 'Andaz Apna Apna'. (With inputs from ANI)

Salman Khan firing case: IP address of post claiming responsibility traced

Salman Khan firing case: It was on April 14th when two unidentified men opened fire in front of Salman Khan’s Mumbai house. Since then, the entire Khan family has been in a state of shock. Today, in the morning news broke out that police have arrested two suspects. The duo was arrested within 48 hours of the incident from Gujarat's Bhuj early on Tuesday morning. Now, another update related to the incident is coming out. It has been said that the crime branch has traced the IP address through which the post was made on Facebook that claimed responsibility for the attack. Hours after the gunshot incident happened, a post claiming responsibility surfaced on the internet. The social media post, written in Hindi, reads, "We want peace. If the only decision against oppression is war, then so be it. Salman Khan, we have only shown you a trailer so that you understand our strength and do not test it. This is the first and last warning. After this, bullets will not be fired outside the house only. I do not have a habit of talking too much," the post read. Now, PTI has reported that the police have managed to trace the IP address of the post. The IP (Internet Protocol) address of the FB post was traced to Portugal, and the police were verifying it, a senior official said on Monday. Police suspect a VPN (virtual private network) was used for uploading the Facebook post, allegedly by Anmol Bishnoi, the brother of jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi on Sunday, he said. A VPN establishes a digital connection between a computer and a remote server owned by a VPN provider, creating a point-to-point tunnel that encrypts personal data, masks IP addresses, and allows the user to sidestep website blocks and firewalls on the Internet. Meanwhile, reacting to the incident, Salman Khan's brother and actor Arbaaz Khan stated that the particular "disturbing" incident has affected the family. He also shared that the family is fully cooperating with the Mumbai Police in investigating the matter.           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Arbaaz Khan (@arbaazkhanofficial) (Inputs from PTI)

R Balki Birthday 2024: From Pad Man to Paa, top 5 movies of the filmmaker

R Balki is one of the renowned filmmakers of the Indian film industry. In his career spanning about a decade, he has created several beautiful films that delve into different complexities of life. From the unconventional love story of 'Cheeni Kum' to the revenge drama 'Chup', all of his movies are full of life and emotions. Today, on R Balki's birthday, here is a look back at his much-loved films: Cheeni Kum - Balki made his first Hindi film in 2007, which stars Amitabh Bachchan and Tabu in lead roles. The movie revolves around a 64-year-old chef, Buddhadev Gupta (played by Amitabh Bachchan), who falls in love with a much younger woman, Nina Verma (played by Tabu). The film explores the unconventional relationship between the two and the societal taboos surrounding age gaps in romantic relationships. Ki & Ka - R Balki's films have always challenged societal norms, and "Ki & Ka" is no exception. Starring Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles, it follows the story of Kabir (played by Arjun Kapoor) and Kia (played by Kareena Kapoor Khan). The movie explores the dynamics of their relationship and societal prejudices about gender norms. In the film, Kabir is a stay-at-home husband who aspires to be like his mother, while Kia is a career-driven woman. Paa - This is one of R Balki's best films. The emotional drama revolves around a little boy named Auro who has a rare disease called progeria, which causes him to age rapidly. The movie stars Abhishek Bachchan in the role of the father, while Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Auro. The film explores the life of this kid who faces challenges due to his rare disease. Pad Man - Inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, "Pad Man" tells the story of Lakshmikant Chauhan (played by Akshay Kumar), a social reformer, and entrepreneur who takes on the challenge to improve women's hygiene during menstruation periods. Chauhan dedicates his life to this purpose and creates affordable pads for women. Chup: The Revenge of the Artist - This film presents a tricky story of a man on a mission to assassinate every film critic who writes wrong reviews or gives ratings after being paid. As the mystery unfolds, the film delves into themes of art, psychology, and the consequences of trauma.
