The row started after Tharoor shared a media report on the microblogging site stating that the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ has been banned in Singapore. “Film promoted by India’s ruling party, #KashmirFiles, banned in Singapore,” the Congress MP tweeted.

Reacting to Tharoor’s tweet, Agnihotri said Singapore is the most regressive censor in the world and asked him to stop making “fun” of the Kashmiri Hindu genocide.

“Dear fopdoodle, gnashnab @ShashiTharoor, FYI, Singapore is most regressive censor in the world. It even banned The Last Temptations of Jesus Christ (ask your madam) Even a romantic film called #TheLeelaHotelFiles will be banned. Pl stop making fun of Kashmiri Hindu Genocide,” the filmmaker tweeted.

Targeting the Member of Parliament further, Agnihotri asked to him delete the tweet if his wife Sunanda Pushkar was a Kashmiri Hindu.

“Hey @ShashiTharoor, Is this true that Late Sunanda Pushkar was a Kashmiri Hindu? Is the enclosed SS true? If yes, then in Hindu tradition, to respect the dead, you must delete your tweet and apologise to her soul,” ‘The Kashmir Files’ director tweeted.

Veteran actor Anupam Kher, who played a crucial role in ‘The Kashmir Files’, also joined Agnihotri to attack Tharoor, saying that he should show some sensitivity towards Kashmiri Pandits for Sunanda’s sake who was a Kashmiri herself.

“Dear @ShashiTharoor! Your callousness towards #KashmiriHindus genocide is tragic. If nothing else at least for #Sunanda’s sake who was a Kashmiri herself you should show some sensitivity towards #KashmiriPandits & not feel victorious about a country banning #TheKashmirFiles!” Anupam Kher tweeted.

After her late wife, Sunanda was “dragged” into the controversy, Tharoor said he has never seen the movie and has not made any comment on its contents. He pointed out that he has repeatedly drawn attention to the plight of Kashmiri pandits over the years.

“I tweeted a factual news item this morning, with no comment on its contents or on the film “The Kashmir Files”, which I have not seen. At no point did I “mock” or disparage the sufferings of Kashmiri Pandits, of whose plight I am intimately aware, and to which I have repeatedly drawn attention over the years,” the Congress MP said in a statement on Twitter.

“Dragging my late wife Sunanda into this matter was unwarranted and contemptible. No one is more aware of her views than I am. I have accompanied her to the destroyed ruins of her ancestral home in Bomai, near Sopore, and joined her in conversations with her Kashmiri neighbours and friends, both Muslim and Hindu. One thing I know, unlike those attempting to exploit her when she is not around to speak for herself: She believed in reconciliation, not hate.”

Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a luxury hotel in New Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014.

Ajay Devgn VS Kiccha Sudeep: Ram Gopal Varma Says ‘North Stars Are Jealous Of The South Stars’

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: Amid actors Ajay Devgn and Kiccha Sudeep’s Twitter war over Hindi being the national language, director Ram Gopal Varma has weighed in on the controversy saying “north stars are insecure and jealous of the south stars.”

The controversy started with Sudeep stating that Hindi is no longer a national language. Devgn then slammed the Kannada actor, saying, “My brother, if according to you Hindi is not our national language then why do you release your movies in your mother tongue by dubbing them in Hindi? Hindi was, is, and always will be our mother tongue and national language. Jan Gan Man.”

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma supported Sudeep saying, “The base undeniable ground truth @KicchaSudeep sir, is that the north stars are insecure and jealous of the south stars because a Kannada dubbing film #KGF2 had a 50 crore opening day and we all are going to see the coming opening days of Hindi films.”

The director did not stop there and he took a jibe at Devgn’s upcoming movie ‘Runway 34’.

“Like the PROOF of the PUDDING is in the eating, the runway 34 collections will prove how much GOLD (kgf2) is there in HINDI versus KANNADA .. @ajaydevgn versus @KicchaSudeep,” he stated in another tweet.

Earlier, Sudeep had also replied to Devgn’s tweet on Wednesday, saying the actor probably did not understand what he had tried to say.

“And sir, I did understand the text you sent in Hindi. That’s only because we all have respected, loved and learnt Hindi. No offense sir, but was wondering what’d the situation be if my response was typed in Kannada!! Don’t we too belong to India, sir,” stated Sudeep while replying to Devgn’s tweet.

The controversy erupted when Sudeep while speaking at the film launch of ‘R: The Deadliest Gangster Ever’, said, “You said that a pan India film was made in Kannada. I’d like to make a small correction. Hindi is no more a national language. They (Bollywood) are doing pan-India films today. ”

Devgn’s directorial venture ‘Runaway 34’ will hit the theatres on Friday, April 29. (ANI)

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: On April 20, 2007, Bollywood’s power couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan exchanged their wedding vows, leaving the entire nation in awe of them.

After a touching proposal, the grand wedding was hailed as the decade’s best ‘star wedding.’ In times when there were no social media hashtags and minute-to-minute social media coverage, people around the country remained glued to their television screens just to get a glimpse of the bride and groom. From their proposal to welcoming their first child, here’s a timeline of the adorable couple’s relationship.

The first meeting

As revealed by Abhishek, the first time the couple saw each other was in 1999, during a photoshoot for their film ‘Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke’.

Since then, Abhishek and Aishwarya have worked together on several movies like ‘Kuch Naa Kaho’ (2003), ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005), ‘Dhoom 2’ (2006), ‘Umrao Jaan’ (2006), and ‘Guru’ (2007).

When love brew

The gradual transition from being friends to partners reportedly took place in 2006-2007, where in a period of one year, three of their films were released. It was during this phase, that they got an opportunity to know each other inside-out.

At that point, no one knew that the on-screen chemistry between the two lead actors in ‘Dhoom 2’, ‘Umrao Jaan’ and ‘Guru’, was soon going to change into a real-life relationship.

The first Bachchan ensemble

The first time we got to see Abhishek, Amitabh and the would-be Mrs Bachchan together on screen was during ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005).

The iconic song ‘Kajra Re’ where the father-son duo rocks the stage with the ever-beautiful Aishwarya is one of the most memorable moments in the ‘Abhi-Aish’ timeline.

The Proposal

When Abhishek and Aishwarya travelled to Toronto for the premiere of their film ‘Guru’ in 2007, Abhishek had planned an adorable proposal for Aishwarya.

Sharing the details to Oprah Winfrey in the couple’s first interview post their wedding, he said, “I was filming in New York for a movie. And, I used to stand on the balcony of my hotel room and wish that, ‘One day, wouldn’t it be nice if I was together with her, married.’ Years later, we were there for the premiere of Guru. After the premiere, we were back in the hotel. So, I took her to the very same balcony, and I asked her to marry me.”
Aishwarya immediately accepted the proposal.

Engagement and Wedding

After the proposal, the couple had secretly gotten engaged on January 14, 2007, at the Bachchan’s residence. After their engagement, Aishwarya quite frequently used to meet the Bachchans.

In the span of a few months, the couple went ahead with their highly-anticipated wedding on April 20, 2007. Aishwarya looked heavenly in the beautiful golden Kanjeevaram saree and traditional jewellery, with the ensemble made by fashion designer Neeta Lulla.

‘Abhi-Aish’ at Cannes

In May 2007, the couple walked their first ever Cannes red carpet together. The charming duo appeared hand-in-hand at the event, setting major couple goals and winning many hearts.

Milan Fashion Week

In 2010, the couple were sitting in the first row with international stars at the Giorgio Armani fashion show at the Milan Fashion Week.

While Aishwarya wore wide-legged velvet Armani trousers paired with a smart black satin jacket and a simple clutch, Abhishek chose a black suit with a white shirt.

The Oscars

Vacationing in Los Angeles, the couple got an invitation to the Academy Awards aka Oscars.

“What a great interruption to have, I think. It’s been wonderful, it’s a bit cold in LA which is unusual but it’s wonderful, it’s so nice, very sweet of them to invite us and recognise our film industry and we’re very happy to be here representing India,” Abhishek said at the event.

Welcoming their first child

After four years of being married, Abhishek and Aishwarya welcomed their daughter, Aaradhya, into the world on November 16, 2011.

Both Aishwarya and Abhishek have been vocal about how grateful they are for Aaradhya coming into their life. When Aishwarya made her debut on Instagram, she had posted a monochrome picture with Aaradhya when she was born and had captioned it as ‘I was born again.’

Graceful public appearances

After the birth of their daughter Aaradhya, Abhishek and Aishwarya were spotted together on several occasions.
In 2012, on Amitabh Bachchan’s 70th birthday, Aradhya made her first public appearance along with her mother Aishwarya.

Also in 2017, they were seen at the Ambani’s Ganpati party.

It’s been 15 years since Abhishek and Aishwarya tied the knot and the couple never fails to embrace their love for each other.

In a recent interview with ANI, Abhishek shared how Aishwarya taught him to focus on positivity in life, especially while dealing with negative criticism.

“My wife once told me that, ‘you get 10,000 positive comments but you get affected by one negative comment. You should concentrate on positivity and experience the beauty of the positive world’. So, I always try to look at things with positivity,” he had said.

Ranveer Singh’s ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ Trailer Highlights The Issue Of Female Foeticide

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: Never underestimate the power of a girl — that’s what Ranveer Singh proudly conveys with the trailer of his upcoming social-comedy ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’.

The trailer of ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ opens with a girl child complaining to the sarpanch (Boman Irani) about how guys in her village eve tease females after consuming alcohol. Instead of finding the right solution, the sarpanch asks the girls to stop using scented soaps, which the sarpanch says provokes men. Ranveer decides to nod along with every verdict of his father and mother (played by Ratna Pathak Shah). However, Ranveer’s actions change and he decides to oppose his father’s decisions when he learns that his wife is pregnant with another daughter.

The trailer then shows how Ranveer along with his pregnant wife and daughter leave his father and mother after learning that the two want to abort his girlchild.

With the film, the makers have touched upon several issues including misogyny and female foeticide with a dash of comedy.

Ranveer is extremely blessed to be a part of ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ and hopes to leave an important message to society with his project.

“I have been blessed and fortunate to have found remarkable scripts that have stood out and touched people. I’m grateful for them and I’m also proud of the work that I have done to bring those roles to life on screen. It has taken everything out of me but I have always believed that if I have to be the best actor-entertainer in the country, then I have to do things that no one would attempt doing,” he shared.

He added, “Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a film that I have relished being a part of because it has again pushed me to shape-shift into becoming a character with absolutely no reference point in Hindi cinema. You have not seen a character like Jayeshbhai. He is not your typical hero. He discovers heroism when he is pushed to the brink and he is, according to me, one of the most lovable heroes in the history of Hindi cinema.”
