Sonam Kapoor had her dream wedding right with beau Anand Ahuja in Mumbai amidst a two-day celebration. After celebrating their solemnisation in a two-day wedding celebration on 7th and 8th May, the actress headed to Cannes Film Festival just after 4 days of her marriage.

Now, as per recent buzz in the Tinsel Town, the newlyweds Sonam and Anand have purchased a property in London and the couple was reported to move there soon after their wedding. Contrary to this, other reports suggest that they will divide their time between Mumbai, Delhi and London.

Reacting to all these reports, Sonam Kapoor revealed to a leading daily, “I have been shuttling between Mumbai and London for the past two years. It seems no one noticed this so far. My life isn’t going to change much; what has been happening for the past two years will continue”.

Our Family is our strength.. thanks so much @kapoor.sunita you’re the best mom in the whole wide world for making this happen in such a spectacular fashion! Daddy for being so such an amazing host and loving Anand and I so unconditionally @anilskapoor @priya.ahuja27 for going out of your way to do everything and making sure Anand and I get everything we desire!

In the same interaction, Sonam also emphasised how her professional life will not take a back seat after marriage. She expressed, “Life remains the same after tying the knot. Women need to stop thinking that marriage is life-altering. If it doesn’t change a man’s life, why should it change anything for a woman?”.

Right after her marriage, Sonam had also changed her social media handles to Sonam K Ahuja which was questioned by many. Responding to these questions, she stated, “Just changing my name doesn’t make me any less of a feminist. Kapoor is also my father’s name, a man’s name. I wanted to keep both my identities. It was my personal choice. Somebody judging me for my choice is like challenging what feminism stands for”.

Actress Rani Mukerji, who is currently riding high on the success of her comeback film “Hichki”, says age or marital status of an actress has nothing to do with a films failure or success

Actress Rani Mukerji, who is currently riding high on the success of her comeback film Hichki, says age or marital status of an actress has nothing to do with a film’s failure or success. Asked if she feels that age and marital status of an actress considered detrimental in the industry, Rani told IANS over the phone from Mumbai: “The success of Hichki has changed a lot of that thinking… It is important to understand that the audience is changing. They want to see a good film and a content-oriented film… When you give them a good film they don’t really care what your martial status is.”

Rani Mukerji, 40, says that the audience wants to be “entertained by films”. “What I am doing in my personal life is none of anyone’s business… What I do outside my work is not really important as long as I am doing films and the roles that suit me and the roles which I feel the audience will connect with,” she added. The actress is married to Yash Raj Films’ head honcho Aditya Chopra. She tied the knot in 2014 and welcomed her first child — a daughter named Adira in 2015.

The Aiyyaa actress asserts that “so many actresses have already proven that marital status is not important”. “A film not doing well also happens to actors who are not married and who don’t have babies. Just because a married actress comes back and her film is not doing well lets not blame her personal life,” she said. The Mardaani actress concluded by saying: “Let’s keep it casual and say that the film was not good that is why the film did not work or the film is really good and that’s why the film is working.”

Salman Khan is accused of running his Toyota Land Cruiser over people sleeping on a sidewalk outside a bakery in Mumbai’s Bandra on September 28, 2002

Salman Khan

A Mumbai court on Saturday cancelled the bailable warrant against Bollywood actor Salman Khan in connection with 2002 hit and run case. The bailable warrant was cancelled after Salman’s bodyguard Shera stood as his surety.

Last week, the court issued a bailable warrant against Salman as he did not complete the procedure of providing surety on the past two dates. However, the bailable warrant stayed later after the lawyer had assured that the actor would complete the procedure.

On October last year, the Supreme Court heard the plea filed by the Maharashtra government, challenging the acquittal of Salman in regard to the case. In December 2015, the Bombay High Court acquitted Khan of all criminal charges on account of lack of substantial evidence in the case.

The Bollywood actor is accused of running his Toyota Land Cruiser over people sleeping on a sidewalk outside a bakery in Mumbai’s Bandra on September 28, 2002. One labourer died, while four others were injured in the accident.

priya case

Actress Priya Prakash Varrier, who stole the heart of the nation with her cute antics in a song of an upcoming Malyalam movie, on Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking quashing of the FIRs against her and the director of the film for hurting religious sentiments of Muslims.

The actress, film director Omar Lulu and others sought an ex-parte stay on the FIR and police complaints, and also appropriate orders restraining other states from registering such FIRs.

Some Muslim activists had lodged an FIR against the team of “Oru Adaar Love” in Hyderabad under Section 295A (hurting religious sentiments) of the Indian Penal Code on February 14. 

A group in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad also filed a police complaint against Varrier and Lulu on the same grounds.

On Monday, Varrier’s counsel Pallavi Pratap told the apex court that the criminal complaints instituted by “various fringe groups” are based on a “distorted and incorrect interpretation of the song”.

“The claims that it hurts the religious sentiments of the Muslim community are without any basis,” it said. 

Stressing that an amount of Rs 1.5 crore has been spent on the movie, the plea said “such flimsy and baseless complaints and FIRs cause nothing but hindrance in freedom of speech”. 

The contentious scene where Varrier winks at a boy features the Mappila lyrics — a traditional Muslim song from the Malabar region of Kerala — that celebrate the love between Prophet Mohammed and his first wife Khadija.

The complainants have primarily objected to the use of Mappila as background music in the flirting scene.

However, the petition said it was “hard to fathom” that a song which has been in existence “for the past 40 years… was cherished by the Muslim community in Kerala is now being treated as an insult… it cannot suddenly offend the religious sentiment of the Muslim community”.

The plea said that the fringe elements have “misunderstood” the lyrics of the song.

“Filing of criminal complaints and registration of FIRs by the police in multiple states on the basis of complaints by fringe elements… has adversely affected the petitioners’ right to life, liberty and freedom of expression.

“…the legality of the content of the film and the certification on the same can only be dealt with under law by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC),” it said.

Citing the apex court’s order on November 16, 2017 that a film or a drama or a novel or a book is a creation of art, the plea said these complaints were contrary to the order. 

The Supreme Court has observed earlier that an artist has freedom to express himself and a thought-provoking film “should never mean that it has to be didactic or in any way puritanical”.
