Someone like him, a veteran and a respectable director and producer like him, I cannot even think of it. I have worked with him and it has been a brilliant pleasure and outstanding experience. When I heard the news, more than being shocked I was very upset.”

“Whoever is trying to put allegations they should not forget that there is an option called NO. You can’t just put any false allegations, that is very immature,” she further added.

Rahul Gandhi promotes traditions, say women should have restricted entry in Sabarimala


1.JPGThe AICC President has taken a U-turn in his Sabarimala Shrine statement, which was welcomed by the Kerala leadership of Congress on Sunday. Earlier Rahul Gandhi had a different tale to tell, which, he has now changed and the Congress leadership in Kerala says, that it is something that would save the party in being embarrassed further.

Rahul earlier was of the say that the women should be allowed to enter the temple, however, taking a complete U-turn, Rahul has now said something different. He is now arguing traditionalism and appears supporting the ban on the entry of ladies aged over 10-50 in the shrine.

“I can see validity in the argument that tradition needs to be protected… and that women should have equal rights… After I spoke to people in Kerala, and our team there, I realized that the issue is much more complicated and both sides have a valid position. I would leave it to decide on this,” Gandhi said in Dubai on Saturday.


The issue of Sabarimala shrine and women entering on it has stretched and already two women have been booked to enter the Shrine campus. The Shrine performed a purifying ritual to make sure that the premises has not been maligned by the women entering in.

On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi lately have been seen changing his statements very frequently. While earlier he said that the women should not enter the Shrine, he is not a traditional supporter and contributing to the propaganda.

He also said that he would waiver off the debts of the farmer as soon as his government will be in power, but later changed his statements as well.

BJP will reap the fruit of their Vendetta culture, says SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav


Recently the CBI raided a number of places in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, in relation to the sand mining scam. This has led to the possibilities of the agency questioning the former Chief Minister of UP and SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav. On Sunday, Yadav took a jibe over the issue, and claimed that BJP has started a culture of vendetta. He also claimed that the day is not far away when BJP will be at the receiving end of its conspiracy.

“Jo sanskriti inhone (BJP) shuru ki hai, uska saamna inhen khud bhi karna padh sakta ha,” Yadav said, ashe reffered to appower shift possible in the assembly election in 2019. “If they (BJP) have CBI, we have the gathbandhan (alliance), he added.

He also addressed the issue of CBI summoning him for the investigation and said that it is his old habit to confront sleuths. “Earlier, Congress unleashed CBI on me and now BJP is doing the same. I am ready to respond to all queries by the agency, but BJP should also be prepared to respond to questions by people on farmers’ suicide and rising unemployment,” he added. “BJP will use every ammunition at their disposal before the LS elections — be it CBI or money power, but SP and BSP will focus on consolidating the alliance and winning maximum seats,” he said.

On Saturday, CBI conducted probe at multiple locations to find out illegal sand mining contracts. As per the sources, there are several leaders as well as Akhilesh, who is under the radar as he held the portfolio of sand mining during his tenure as CM.

Akhilesh has said that “it’s the people and not CBI that vote during polls”.

Pakistan requires strong domestic structure Like India for test success

For India’s Test success a strong domestic structure is very important and Pakistan cannot expect a same kind of performance from their players when most of them try to ignore the four-day cricket in the country, explained the former Test captain Salman Butt.


Last month Pakistan had lost the three-Test series against New Zealand 1-2 and also faced a six-wicket defeat against South Africa in the very first Test at Centurion last week.

On the other side, India defeated Australia by 137 runs in the third Test at Melbourne to take an unassailable 2-1 lead and uphold the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

When India won the recent Test which they played against Australia, Virat Kohli added that India’s domestic cricket is certainly the great one for the success in bowling and batting,” said Butt, who played 33 Tests and 78 ODIs in his international cricket career.

The reason why India is doing well is that the players are only given the permission to play in the IPL T20 cricket and have to play Ranji Trophy unlike us where most players tend to ignore four-day domestic cricket.

He further added “Look most of them (Pakistani players) have not even played 50 first class games. Not many of them have spent time in domestic four-day cricket. Worse they have played all their cricket mostly in UAE conditions,”

Coming Thursday Pakistan will take on South Africa in the second Test beginning Cape Town and Butt said changing the playing XI will not bring any major change
He also added that Even if changes are made in the Pakistan team for the second Test in South Africa, I don’t think it will make a difference,”.

We just don’t have players who can be asked to come up with a big inning after every three or four innings.

“What we actually should do is somehow get to 300 in the second Test and if Muhammad Abbas plays we stand a good chance of winning.”

He also asked in general that when players were defined as being fit for one or more formats, the same rule should be there for everyone even for the head coach.

He also said I think we need to see if Mickey Arthur or for that matter any coach has the temperament like a player to adjust to all formats or which format.

Further, he added “Because a coach can’t expect to have the same approach or expectations for all formats. That is not practical. I wonder if the head coach has the penchant to handle all three formats or test cricket.”

Butt’s international career was cut short after he was found guilty and jailed for 30 months for his role in the 2010 Lord’s spot-fixing scandal. He was debarred from playing cricket for ten years, of which five years was a sentence of suspension.

Punjabi Actress Ihana Dhillon has been roped for Hate Story 4. She has been a part of Punjabi films like “Tiger”, Daddy Cool Munde Fool. The actress is all set to make her debut in Bollywood with Hate Story 4.

In a statement to a leading news daily, Ilhana said, “I’m part of ‘Hate Story 4‘. I had received a call from the production house first. I was kind of skeptical so, I said ‘no’ as I didn’t want to start my Bollywood career with a bold role, but when I had a second meeting with the team, I sat through the entire film narration,”

“After listening to the story and knowing more about my role in the film, I immediately said ‘yes’.” She added.

The shooting for the film is expected to start from September this year.


Discussing her role in the movie, Ihana said, “My role is performance-oriented where acting is given more preference than just looks. Also, I couldn’t ask for more as ‘Hate Story’ (erotic thriller) itself is a very hit franchise and it’s a T-Series production with Vishal Pandya as the director. So I’m really looking forward to this film.”

She has worked against Punjabi actor Sippy Gill, Honey Singh, etc. There is no update as who will be the hero cast against her.

Hate Story series has garnered a great response from the fans but in a decreasing pattern. The first part was a super duper hit but as the time went by, the later parts did less business. The first part featured Paoli Dam as the lead role whereas in the second series Surveen Chawla was seen on the screen. The third sequel of the movie had a somewhat different story line and had two lead actresses Zareen Khan and Daisy Shah.
