    Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Sohail Khan, Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez attend special screening of Race 3

    Salman Khan starrer Race 3 is just two days away from its release and the excitement around the movie is just like any other Salman film. On Tuesday, the makers of the action-thriller held a special screening for industry folks. Those who came to watch the film included Salman’s brother Sohail Khan and wife Seema Khan along with their two sons, filmmakers David Dhawan and Sajid Nadiadwala, cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni with wife Sakshi Dhoni and Huma Qureshi with her parents among others.

    The star cast of the movie Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala looked pepped up for the release of their film.

    Kate Middleton Just Wore a Gorgeous and Affordable Dress on a Day Out With Prince George

    Kate Middleton always has enviable style, and she's also a fan of affordable brands, which she demonstrated this weekend.

    On a day out with two of her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Houghton Horse Trials in Norfolk. The event is held every year, and purports to be "a fantastic day out for all the family," so it makes sense that Middleton took George and Charlotte along.

    And for the day out, Kate Middleton selected the perfect outfit, in the form of a subtle blue floral dress from Zara. The dress costs less than $70, although you may have trouble finding one as its popularity skyrocketed thanks to the Duchess. The Daily Mail has photos of Middleton wearing the outfit, and ensuring that George and Charlotte are having fun.

    George and Charlotte's outfits also stood out because they wore matching shoes. The siblings wore Hampton Classic canvas shoes in different colors—George wore navy blue, while Charlotte donned pink. The children's shoes are also affordable and retail for around $47.

    Middleton was also spotted taking Prince George on an air ambulance vehicle—his dad, Prince William, previously worked as a pilot for theAir Ambulance Service, and it's likely that George was excited to find out more about his dad's role.

    The Duchess of Cambridge recently released a letter discussing what she cherishes most about her children. She revealed: "Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish."

    Neha Dhupia poses in stylish lingerie for bold magazine photoshoot

    Neha Dhupia showed off some whoa-worthy looks in her latest magazine photoshoot. We love stylised magazine spreads, so we’re obviously fans of the newly-wed actor’s shoot for Maxim India’s May 2018 issue, showcasing her high-fashion lingerie looks.

    The magazine cover has Neha sitting, while striking a sexy pose, wearing her bra as a top but covered up a bit with a matching gown that she kept unbuttoned. Dressed in Zivame, Lecoanet Hemant and forever21, Neha looked totally at ease in the role of a covergirl. The cherry on top was her light smoky eye and loose, wavy hair. So gorgeous.

    On Tuesday, Neha shared some more pictures from her gorgeous shoot. The edgy shots embody the sexy-but-cool persona that, well, so many try to embody but seems Neha’s authentically.

    Neha wore gorgeous lingerie with her intimates fully on display, but covered up with a shirt and a jacket. If you’re slightly afraid of showing much skin, then you must look to Neha for inspiration, because she pulled off the underwear as outerwear look perfectly.

    Neha’s sexy looks would be perfect for a night out with the girls or a fancy holiday party. Who says you have to rock a boring LBD? All you really need is a cool velvet jacket or a shirt dress and a bra top, and you’re set.

    Ranbir Kapoor on relationship with Alia Bhatt: It's too new


    If the grapevine is to be believed, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have kindled a romance, now that they are working together in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra. And Ranbir might just have confirmed the rumours. According to Pinkvilla, when he was asked about his relationship with Alia, he said it was "too new" to talk about.

    Meanwhile, Alia has made no attempt to hide her admiration for Ranbir. When Alia was gearing up to make a splash in Bollywood, she had shouted from the rooftops that she had a massive crush on Ranbir, and had even expressed her desire to marry him. And it looks like nothing has changed. In an interview with India Today Television last month, Alia called him her "biggest crush of all time".

    Incidentally, when she was asked how she deals with the link-up rumours, she said, "I don't have to deal with them, because if it's true, it's true. And if it's false, it's false. Let's just say everything is not because of a movie and everything is not for publicity."

    Ranbir and Alia have already finished shooting for the first schedule of Brahmastra in Bulgaria. Brahmastra, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy, is being made as a fantasy trilogy, the first installment of which is slated to release in 2019.

    What Sonam Kapoor Said About Janhvi Kapoor's Magazine Debut

    Sonam Kapoor, who is currently busy with the promotional duties of Veere Di Wedding, sliced out time from work commitments to review her cousin Janhvi Kapoor's debut appearance on a magazine cover. Janhvi is such a stunner! She recently featured on the June edition of Vogue India and covered June in the most fabulous way. Subsequently, Sonam has everything nice to say about her "baby sister", whose magazine cover debut was interestingly timed a decade after Sonam made her first appearance on a magazine. "My stunning baby sister Janhvi Kapoor on her first cover of vogue 10 years after my first cover with Vogue India! Couldn't be prouder little (sister)," Instagrammed the Veere Di Wedding actress along with a copy of the cover.

    Sonam also recently featured on the cover of another magazine, which she shared with her Veere Di Wedding co-star Kareena Kapoor. Interestingly, both Sonam and Janhvi were spotted twinning in similar outfits by Temperley London for their respective photoshoots and this is what Sonam shared on her Instagram story

    Janhvi Kapoor co-stars with Ishaan Khatter in the Shashank Khaitan-directed film, which is set to hit screens on July 20. Sonam Kapoor's Veere Di Wedding arrives in theatres this Friday.

    Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas Spark Dating Rumours After Being Spotted Together at LA Dodgers Stadium

    A recent video of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas making an appearance at LA's Dodgers Stadium has sparked rumours of a possible romance between the two stars. The video of the two entering the stadium together to watch a baseball match surfaced on social media recently leading to fresh speculation.

    Their baseball date was followed by holidaying on a yacht with friends Wilmer Valderrama and Chord Overstreet where Priyanka can be seen getting cosy with Nick in pictures.

    This is not the first time that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have been seen together in public. They generated quite a buzz when Nick walked the Met Gala red carpet with Priyanka as her date in 2017.

    Earlier, when Jimmy Kimmel had asked Priyanka about her Met Gala date with Nick on his show. She had said, "We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and so we decided to go together. It was fun. I didn’t ask his age. What is it? 11?"

    Meghan is made first EVER Duchess of Sussex! The Queen's wedding gift to Prince Harry

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they get married today.

    The Queen has gifted the titles to her grandson and his bride-to-be as they prepare to walk down the aisle of St George's Chapel in Windsor. 

    The royal groom's dukedom is the highest rank in the British peerage and marks his marriage to the former US actress.

    She will become the first ever Duchess of Sussex later on today as her new husband is made the first Duke of the county in 175 years and the second in history.
    American former actress Meghan will now become Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex.

    Meghan and Harry have also been handed Scottish and Northern Irish titles from his grandmother

    Harry will also receive Scottish and Northern Irish titles, becoming the Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel, making Meghan the Countess of Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel.

    All royal titles are given by the Queen and it was up to the monarch to choose which one to bestow on her grandson and his new wife.

    Buckingham Palace said: 'The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales.

    'His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.'

    Harry's thoughts on the title will also have been taken into account by the royal matriarch in a private discussion between the Prince and his grandmother.

    Just because I like the name Sidharth doesn’t mean I’m rekindling anything, says Alia Bhatt

    Last year, she completed a glorious five years in Bollywood, and the sixth year started off on a “super busy note” for Alia Bhatt. But she is clearly not complaining. “I always want my working atmosphere to be a happy one,” says the actor, as she gears up for the release of her next, Raazi. She also talks about her working style, link-up rumours and more.

    Thank God, my manager takes care of my date diary (laughs). But it is a crazy time for me. This is the most that I have worked continuously. I have worked every day since January without even a single day off. But I am not complaining as it’s a new kind of time for me. I am learning a lot about myself, my work, and I am understanding new things as well as meeting new people too. We are just in the fifth month of 2018 but it feels I have already gone through the whole year. It’s all going very fast but also slow in a way. The difficult part is switching between the characters. Fortunately, I have finished Gully Boy so, now I just have Brahmastra and Kalank but they both are in very different worlds. I just wish my directors lots of love and luck to handle this kind of a mess (laughs).
    I feel a film is made up of many characters, so it is not just me. But yes, one can say that Raazi is my solo film of sorts after some time. I would not say that it’s completely my film. It is very difficult without your co-actors to bring a character to life. Also, it has been a while since my last film (Badrinath Ki Dulhania; 2017) released, so I am a little nervous because I have never done such a film. There is no reference to do such a film. But the nervousness is there, regardless of a film being big, difficult or small. I will always be nervous but it’s a different kind of nervousness.

    I don’t know for sure but I think it does. I am feeling very tired, but not because of the physical aspects [of a character] but because every character that I am playing is quite layered. For instance, my part in Kalank is also quite difficult. I did not realise it initially, when I started shooting for it. But then, I was like, ‘it’s so difficult. Why am I struggling?’ On the second day, I gave 11 takes for one shot which has not happened with me for a long time. So I choose my characters thinking, ‘yeh kuch alag hoga but it’s like apne pair par kulhaadi maarna’. After this year is over, I just want to have fun and maybe do a nonsensical part with no hectic, stressful and layered work (laughs).

    In an earlier interview, you said that a 20-something isn’t always a poster girl of pure positivity and constant joy…

    You know, I always try and remain positive but at the same time, I also feel, ‘why should the world feel your internal struggles?’ I want my working atmosphere to be a happy one. I want to only give love and positivity. But neither am I always happy nor I am permanently positive. I am constantly paranoid, worried from time to time, under confident and insecure as well. I don’t think these are bad emotions. There is a certain perception that you always need to be happy. I am totally against that. For me, happiness is not an emotion, but moments. I think happiness has been defined all wrong for us. Happiness doesn’t mean you have to be constantly giggling, smiling and laughing.

    I am a very positive and happy person. I certainly believe in the better things in life. But it does not mean that I don’t have bad moments. It’s okay if I don’t laugh too much on a certain day. To put it correctly, I like being warm and that’s my vibe. I can be sad but still be warm. So, I would rather be warm, cozy and comfy. Happiness is overrated.

    More than others, I have high expectations from myself. So, it never weighs me down. I won’t use the word ‘critical’, but I am quite objective about when I am killing it and when I am not. When I watch my film, I don’t think, ‘oh, I wish I had done it better’. I only judge what’s good and what’s not or what’s great and what is average, to be aware that I will be able to do it better the next time.

    Dadasaheb Phalke Award for Vinod Khanna, Sridevi gets best actress

    The 65th National Film Awards on Friday recognised the contribution of Vinod Khanna and Sridevi to the Indian cinema by honouring them post-humously with the Dadasaheb Phalke and best actress awards, respectively.

    Announcing Sridevi’s name, feature film jury head Shekhar Kapur said that the actor was the most deserving candidate. Khanna, one of the biggest stars of Hindi films in 1970s and 1980s, became the 49th recipient of Dadasaheb Phalke award, Indian cinema’s highest honour, in a befitting homage to the legend whose first death anniversary is barely a fortnight away. 

    Sridevi, whose filmography spanned across 50 years and in 300 films in languages such as Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, was recognised for her role of an angry mother seeking justice for her daughter in rape revenge drama, Mom. Her death, at the age of 54 in February this year, had shocked the country.

    Mr Kapur had worked with Sridevi in Mr India. “It was not because of the relationship we shared but because she was the most deserving candidate for her portrayal in Mom,” Mr Kapur said.

    Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor became emotional when told about her win. “Thank you. I just wish she was here today to see this,” Mr Kapoor told agencies.

    The jury recognised the diversity in Indian cinema by appreciating films belonging to different regional languages. Rima Das’ Assamese film Village Rockstars, about the music aspirations of a village girl, was named the best feature film, besides scoring awards for the best location sound recordist, editing and best child artiste (Bhanita Das).

    Jayaraj was named the best director and the best adapted screenplay writer for his Malayalam film Bhayanakam. It also won the best cinematography award.

    Riddhi Sen was recognised as the best actor for Kaushik Ganguly’s Nagarkirtan, which was also bagged awards in multiple categories, such as the best costume, makeup and special jury.

    Oscar-winning music composer A.R.Rahman swept the best music direction category by winning the best songs for the Tamil Film Kaatru Veliyidai and the best background music for the Hindi film Mom. Sinjar, made in Jasari language, won the Indira Gandhi award for the best debut film for director Pampally. It was also recognised as the best film in Jasari langauge.

    Blockbuster Baahubali: The Conclusion won national award for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment, besides being named for special effects and action direction. Ganesh Acharya won the choreography award for the Hindi film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.

    Hindi film Newton, a dark comedy on Indian democracy, was named the best Hindi film and a special mention went to its actor Pankaj Tripathi for his portrayal of a cynical CRPF officer Atma Singh. Mr Kapur called Mr Tripathi’s portrayal one of the highlights of the Amit V. Masurkar-directed film.

    “This is a very important day for me, and an equally important award. I am thankful to the government for recognising my work. When I stepped out of my village, I had the desire of winning a national award someday. I am humbled,” Mr Tripathi told PTI.

    Nargis Dutt award for the best feature film on national integration went to the Marathi film Dhappa, while Malayalam film Aalorumkkam was recognised as the best film on social issues. Hindi film star Divya Dutta was named the best supporting actress for her role in Irada, which also bagged the award for the best film on environmental conservation/preservation.

    How The Government Is Playing A Duplicitous Game Over 'Padmavati'

    It is a fact that most of those who raged and fulminated and fatwa-ed against Salman Rushdie had never ploughed through The Satanic Verses. Geoffrey Robertson who defended Rushdie in the blasphemy case writes "As with the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland, his fatwa was a case of sentence first and trial later." And so it is with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati, a film that has not yet been released but has already become target practice for the likes of the Shree Rajput Karni Sena, issuing threats of violence and bodily injury.

    Mahipal Singh Makrana, the president of the Sena has threatened to do to Deepika Padukone, the lead actor in the film what "Lord Ram's brother did to Surpanakha." Her latest "provocation" was to say that nothing can stop the release of Padmavati. The film's sets have already been vandalised, not once, but twice. Bhansali himself was attacked while shooting in Jaipur. Thakur Abhishek Som, national president of the Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Yuva Mahasabha demanded that Padukone leave the country or face beheading. He announced a Rs 5 crore reward to anyone beheading Bhansali or Padukone though he offered no proof the Yuva Mahasabha has Rs 5 crore to spare. He has finally been booked but remains defiant. The Bajrang Dal has already protested against even showing the trailer of Padmavati in Meerut. The Karni Sena vandalised shops in a mall in Kota in Rajasthan where a theatre was screening the trailer. To add more drama the Shri Rajput Karni Sena has vowed to write letters of protest in their own blood. At least it's their own blood.

    It is time, yet again, for the lumpen fringe to relish their fifteen minutes of fame.

    Bollywood films often do not even pretend to pay lip service to logical accuracy. It's ludicrous that they are being held to demands of historical accuracy.
    At one level, one could ignore them, deny them the media oxygen they desperately crave as they posture before news cameras. But when the Uttar Pradesh government says they are concerned that the release of Padmavati could be provoke "serious law and order problems" it means the fringe has very much entered the mainstream. "The release of the film of December 1 is not in the interest of peace and order," the Uttar Pradesh Home Department has told the Union Information and Broadcasting ministry. The Sarv Samaj Samiti blocked the gates of Chittorgarh shouting "Jai Jai Rani Padmini." The CBFC has returned Padmavati's application for certification citing "technical difficulties" which will probably delay its release.

    But at least the Karni Sena and its cohorts are unequivocal about their demands, bloodthirsty as some of those demands are – heads and noses.

    The government is playing a far more duplicitous game – talking pieties about law and order on one hand, yet indulging and coddling those threatening to disrupt law and order.

    Haryana minister Vipul Goel has said "glamourising Alauddin Khilji's character" was "like praising those who carry out acid attacks on girls."And it does not really help matters when highway minister Nitin Gadkari says "People have a right to be offended... filmmakers should not distort historical facts." And he's added that freedom of expression is not absolute.

    Of course, people have a right to be offended. It's probably the right exercised with most gusto in India these days. But to be offended means to not read a book, to not watch a film, to not listen to a song. To be offended can even mean a call to boycott a film. To be offended cannot mean to vandalise theatres, kill writers, ransack movie sets, and threaten to maim and behead people. And every time the government does not put that squarely front and centre, every time it says the law must be followed and then qualifies it with a "but filmmakers should show sensitivity" the vandals, the so-called fringe see it as a green signal, a wink and nudge. It is grotesque that Sanjay Leela Bhansali needs to show sensitivity in his film but the Karni Sena can threaten to cut off someone's nose in real life.

    Pharrell's Adidas Holi Sneaker Collection Sparks Debate About Cultural Appropriation

    American rapper and music producer Pharrell Williams visited India for the first time last week to promote a new collection of Adidas sneakers and clothing inspired by the Holi spring festival.

    The Adidas “Hu Holi” collection includes sneakers, shirts, hoodies, and shorts that come in a variety of bright colors. The company says the collection drew its influence from the “magic and beauty” of Holi celebrations in India and Nepal.

    Yet while Williams did learn about the spiritual symbolism behind Holi during his trip, images of him looking slightly uncomfortable during the celebration coincided with accusations that Germany-based Adidas is commercializing a beloved Hindu tradition to sell shoes.

    Some people pointed out that Adidas’ new collection seems to tread rather close to cultural appropriation: After all, a German company is using an American celebrity to sell $250 shoes that very explicitly use imagery from a Hindu celebration.

    And, as at least one person noted, it would be easy (and much cheaper) to get that same “Holi-inspired” look by wearing white shoes and clothes to a real Holi event.

    Shukla of the Hindu American Foundation told HuffPost that when she saw the image of Williams at the Holi party, she saw someone who was “taking it all in.”

    “I remember my first Holi in India. I probably had the same look on my face,” Shukla said. “Holi there is at once beautiful and overwhelming, and you better be ready to duck!”

    In an interview with the Indian news channel NDTV, Williams praised India’s “incredible” and “fascinating” culture, and said he’s trying to learn more about the country. He said he knows about a couple of Hindu deities.

    Williams said his goal promoting the Adidas collection is to “give diversity as many opportunities to present itself as possible.”

    “Some of the most beautiful people on the planet are in my opinion from Africa and from India and there’s from light to dark, dark to light on both of those countries and they’re incredibly vivid human beings to begin with, but then their customs and the aesthetic of their customs are just as beautiful,” he said. “The Holi festival is the perfect example, people are literally throwing color around.”

    Esha Gupta's pole dance moves are sexy as hell

    Esha Gupta, who is all set to play the "badass bombshell" in Milan Luthria's Baadshaho, is learning pole dancing. The actress posted a video of her practicing her sexy moves in a black two-piece on Instagram. "Doing some monkey business with my pretty  lanaroxy," Esha captioned the video, tagging her pole dancing instructor, Roksolana Chubenko.

    Fans went gaga over the Jannat 2 actor's irresistible moves and could not stop complimenting her. In fact, some of them requested Esha to feature in a dance number and showcase her skills.

    Esha's last Bollywood release was Vidyut Jammwal-starrer Commando 2, where she played the main antagonist. She will be seen next in Baadshaho, a heist drama set against the backdrop of 1975 Emergency. The film, which is scheduled to release on September 1, also features Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jamwal, Ileana D'Cruz and Sanjay Mishra.

    Soundarya Rajinikanth And Ashwin Are Officially Divorced

     A Chennai-based family court finalised the divorce proceedings of superstar Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya and her estranged husband R Ashwin, reports Times Of India.

    Soundarya and Ashwin were reportedly living separately for seven months and were unable to reconcile, therefore the court granted them divorce, stated the TOI report.

    Soundarya and Ashwin filed for divorce by mutual consent on grounds of difference of opinion but the terms of their separation and details about the custody of the two-year-old son Ved are unknown. Their lawyers said that Soundarya and Ashwin had been living separately for about seven months now and "their misunderstanding over various issues reached a point of no return earlier than that," reports Times Of India.

    Soundarya is the younger of Ranjikanth and Latha Rajinikanth's two daughters. Soundarya's sister is Aishwaryaa, who is married to actor Dhanush. Soundarya married Ashwin, a Chennai-based businessman, in 2010. In September 2016, Soundarya announced that she and Ashwin were ending their marriage in a tweet and she filed for divorce in December 2016.

    Soundarya debuted as director with 2014 Tamil Kochadaiiyaan, which featured her father Rajinikanth and Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. Soundarya's Kochadaiiyaan was the first Indian film to use the motion capture technology. Before Kochadaiiyaan, Soundarya worked as a graphic designer in films like Sivaji, Chennai 600028 and Sandakozhi.

    Soundarya's next film Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 or VIP 2 releases later this month. VIP 2 features Dhanush (also the film's producer) in lead role with Bollywood actress Kajol as antagonist. VIP 2 also stars Amala Paul.

    Ka Bodyscapes censorship row: Pahlaj Nihalani, here's why the CBFC is wrong in denying certification

    Enough is enough. You and your medieval sena in the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) are taking this way too far. Stop. Stop your fight against our freedom to see, our freedom to understand, our freedom to be. It should not come as a surprise for you, that we as biological adults are capable of deciphering for ourselves what is good and what is bad for us to see. So stop belittling our intelligence. The fact that at 18, we are capable of deciding who should run our country proves that the Republic of India trusts our intelligence and our capabilities. So please, just please, stop overworking your brain a little too much.
    Still from Ka Bodyscapes
    Your recent victim — Ka Bodyscapes — was denied certification because you accused the makers of "glorifying the subject of gay and homosexual relationship". “Glorification”? What you call glorification is life for up to 10 percent of any population across the world, including India. I will tell you what is glorification — chopping off a head in Rangoon is glorification of violence, running on top of a train and dancing is glorification of a fantasy that claims many lives. And you awarded Rangoon a U/A certificate? I loved Rangoon. But do you think watching the story of a girl child being bought, a war being fought, a head being chopped off is what children should watch, (even) if accompanied by their parents? Why such a lacklustre attitude toward violence, but such an obsessive attitude towards sex and sexuality? And yes, in this DNA India article, you ranted that no one appreciates you when you are being liberal. That’s precisely what I am contesting — why are you selectively liberal with big banners? Why are you liberal where you should be strict and issue a film an A certificate instead of a U/A rating?

    What is your problem with the women’s right movement? I am asking because your board called Lipstick Under My Burkha a “lady-oriented film”, and said it depicts “fantasies” that are “above life”. What is that supposed to mean? Are you going to ban Krissh 4, or hello, much to the displeasure of religious people — are you banning Mahabharata and Ramayana? They may be fact or fiction, that is debatable, but they are definitely “above life”. Why ban aka deny a certificate to Lipstick Under My Burkha? Do you know how important and empowering to a minority community, to a minority gender just the title of the film is? Do you even know the power of good cinema and the positive impact it can have in opening minds? O! how will you know. Your mind is closed.

    Pratyusha Banerjee suicide case The late actress’ boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh issues THREATS at the hospital

    As you all must be aware, Rahul Raj Singh, late Balika Vadhu actress Pratyusha Banerjee‘s boyfriend, was getting treated for depression at Shree Sai Hospital and it seems his condition was pretty grim. According to a daily, he threatened to jump off the building after Police interrogated him.

    The daily reported that Rahul was taken to Bangur Nagar Police station for questioning on Friday morning. He returned to the hospital after two hours of interrogation. Later, he went to the bathroom and locked himself up in the first floor of the hospital. When he didn’t emerge out of it for long, relatives panicked and the doctor was called. When the relatives urged him to come out, he bellowed that he will jump off the building. Doctors then calmed him down, post which he came out of the bathroom.

    Rahul went through a psychiatric evaluation on Saturday evening, post which he was discharged. But doctors have asked him to continue his meds and counselling, the daily reports. Pratyusha’s father had earlier approached the Medical Association against the hospital for shielding Rahul. He smells a conspiracy there. He had sent a letter to the association saying all that and also added that the hospital apparently is known for harbouring criminals. Such allegations were dismissed by Dr. Surinder Goel from Shree Sai Hospital. The daily quoted him saying, “Where is the question of conspiracy? My work is done the moment he is alright. If he is a criminal, he should be given the heaviest punishment.”

    BollywoodLife informed its viewers that the makers of Puli might take the route followed by Baahubali and release the film in a Hindi dubbed version. Considering the tremendous business Baahubali has done in north India, the Puli team is aiming to take a similar route and reach out to a wider audience. The Hindi dubbed version of Bahubali was distributed by Karan Johar under his Dharma Productions banner and inched close to the 100 crore mark in no time!

    Is is being said that there are likely to be more CGI and VFX effects in Puli as compared to Baabahuli. What’s pending to be seen is how the audience will react to Puli after Baahubali’s massive success.

    Will Puli be able to create the same magic? Let us wait and watch! Till then check out all the pics in the gallery above and tell us whose look you like the best!
