His family supported his decision and are happy to welcome a new member in the house.

Tusshar is very excited and pleased to be a father. He said, “it was the paternal instincts in him that took control of his mind and heart and fueled his decision of becoming a single parent.” He said, “I am thrilled to be a father!” He thanked god and the expert team of Jaslok Hospital that made his wish come true. The Director of IVF and Genetics Firuza Parikh and his team oversaw the IVF treatment. Dr. Parikh was impressed to see Tusshar’s determination to be a father and his interest in the baby’s health throughout the treatment stage.

Jeetendra and Shobha are happy to be grandparents and regard the baby as a blessing for their family. They are confident that their son will be a good father to Laksshya.

They say when a film has its heart in place, it will surely click with the audience. This business mantra is proven by the recently released drug drama  “Udta Punjab.” Despite facing lots of obstacles for its release, the film managed to do a decent business at the box office over the weekend.

To get the official permission for the movie release, the filmmaker had to wage a war against the Censor Board. The arguments with the Chief of the Board was so stretched that the court had to step in. It was only after the intervention of the court that the film was cleared for the release. Just when the clearance came as a breather for the makers, they were shaken by another news of the censor copy been leaked. Many Bollywood actors termed the incidence as “shame” and held the Censor Board responsible.

Facing all the odds, the film finally hit the theatres. On the first day of its release on June 17, the film did a business of 10.05 crore and became one of the top five highest opener of 2016. The business picked up on the second and third day and collected 11.25 crore and 12.70 crore respectively, taking the weekend collection to impressive 34 crore. The cities where the film received tremendous response are Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, East Punjab, and Kolkatta.

With a budget of 48 crore in the making, including marketing and post production expenses, it is apparent that the film is on its way of recovering its expenses.

OMG! A rape complaint against Salman Khan


Being under the spotlight requires not just talent, but also marketing and PR skills. Artists do many things to grab the attention and stay in the news. They even resort to mudslinging even though the ‘someone’ they are dragging in the controversy may probably have nothing to do with them. Pooja Missra, the ex Big Boss contestant (if you remember), who doesn’t hold any inhibitions to stay in the news, has done just that.

She has filed a rape complaint with the Mumbai police against Salman Khan. She even uploaded a copy of the filed complaint on her Twitter account (see the copy and her tweet at the bottom). Though the content of the copy is not clear, it was enough to catch a fire on the social media.

In her statement, she has claimed to be raped by three men when shooting for her upcoming film ‘Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai” in Jaipur. She also added that she was sexually assaulted by three videographers who took undue advantage of her intoxicated state. She also made some unbelievable  and serious allegations on “Dabangg” Khan.

Pooja has invited controversies on several occasions in the past. What she hasn’t understood is that howsoever hard she  may try to be in the news, but she will never gain sympathy or positive attention. There are reports that claim that she is suffering with Schizophrenia, a mental disorders. Her complaint would have gone unnoticed had she not dragged Salman Khan’s name in it.

Chitrangada Singh refused to get intimate and walked out of “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz”

Chitrangada Singh

Though Chitrangada Singh has no offer in her kitty currently, she refused to be a part of the Kushan Nandy directorial venture “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz.” According to the close sources, an intimate scene between her and Nawazuddin Siddiqui was to be shot. Though it was over at the first take, the director was not happy and wanted her to do the scene again.

She was asked to lie on top of Nawaz, rub her legs with his, and perform sex.’ The way the director demanded her to redo the scene in front of the entire unit offended her badly. She even questioned the director on how he can be such in-professional and talk to her in such a way.

Though the director tried to pacify her by taking her aside, she retorted “Now that you have started it in front of so many people, why end it in a place away from them? What do you think of yourself, Kushan?”

Chitrangada left the set furiously and decided to quit the film rather than give in to his demand. She called up Nawazuddin Siddiqui later and informed her that she has quit the film. However, a friend of the director said that she didn’t quit, but was removed as she was not performing well.

Aamir Khan’s inspiring transformation for “Dangal”

Aamir Khan’s inspiring transformation!

Aamir Khan has changed his looks and overall appearance several times to suit characters he had played on the screen. He shocked fans every time he transformed himself for a role. Recently, the actor had a tremendous makeover not just once, but twice. He shocked all inside out for his role of a wrestler he is playing in ‘Dangal.’

‘Dangal’ is based on the life of a famous Indian wrestler named Mahavir Singh Phogat. To fit into the character, Aamir gained several kilos of weight. He even neglected all the pieces of medical advice of going against the sudden weight increase as he was risking his life. But for him, all the mattered was to getting into the shape of the aged wrestler. He wrapped up all the scenes first in which he has to appear older.

To show the younger side of the real-life wrestler, he headed to the US for a special weight-loss training. When he returned, the actor gave us a pleasant surprise to all. Besides losing weight, he also got beefed up that perfectly suits a wrestler. Looking at the picture, one can easily relate Aamir to younger Mahavir Singh Phoghat. He truly looks like a professional wrestler ready to challenge opponents.

The ripped and toned body of the actor will certainly inspire any youngster to hit the gym. Want a reason to exercise? See this picture.



Harbhajan Singh in support for “Udta Punjab”

Ever since the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) placed a condition for issuing a release certificate to “Udta Punjab,” the film has got into controversy. The Board Chief, Pahlaj Nihalani ordered 40 cuts in the film because of excessive swearing words, abusive language, and scenes of drug consumption. The joining of a few political parties in support and against the release of the film added extra fuel to the controversy.

Though the state of Punjab is facing severe problem of drug abuse for the past few years, the ruling parties have other opinions. According to them, the youth of the state is not spoiled and not into drugs. As they feel, the movie could damage the reputation of the state, they are demanding removal of the word ‘Punjab’ from the title and anything in or of Punjab in the film.

The controversy over whether the film should be given a green signal for the release or not was debated by a few political parties on a popular news channel lately.

However, the entire film industry is against the Censor Board and is backing the filmmakers. Harbhajan Singh too supported the industry in his own style through his Twitter account. His tweet reads “Nt a movie buff bt if #UdtaPunjab showing rightly whats happening in punjab what’s wrong with it then ? We want our punjab drug free state.”

‘Udta Punjab’ is slated to release on 17 June and features Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, and Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles.

Raj Kundra dispels rumours about his separation with wife Shilpa Shetty

raj & shilpa

2016 has brought in a bad phase in B-town that saw the separation of married couples and lovebirds in long-term relationship. The end of its second quarter is rife with the news of trouble in Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty’s marriage. A few days ago, the report about their marriage hitting the rock was published by an online entertainment company  that shocked the film industry and spread like a wild fire.

The news about something unhappy in the couple’s life emerged when Raj Kundra left his home and converted his office into a home. He has been staying away from his home for the last 15 days. Though he often stays away from his home because of his business, he had hardly remained out for more than a few days. Given that his residence is very close to his office, being away from his better half was indigestible for all. His only trip to home was for fetching fresh clothes. Other routine activities like sleeping, bathing, and eating were all done in the office.

Seeing unnecessary attention by the people in their private life, Raj Kundra decided to halt the rumour wagon running uncontrolled and unrestrained. He responded in this way through his Twitter account, ““like seriously?? I better spend more time at home… whoops 1.30 am returning HOME from office.”

Raj and Shilpa got married in 2009 and have a four-year-old son. The kind of celebration the couple will have on Shilpa’s birthday falling on June 8 will speak a lot about their relationship.  Till then, wait and watch.
