It is the untimely death of veteran actress Sridevi that has taken the entire nation and her family by a storm. She is survived by husband Boney Kapoor and two daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. The family is going through the hardest phase and it’s their survival that is affected by an irreplaceable loss. However, it’s Boney’s children, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor, who have stood rock-solid beside their father and half-sisters, Janhvi and Khushi in this trying time.

On Sunday, Anshula Kapoor posted a message on her Instagram account, which was appreciated by hers and Arjun’s followers but an ardent Arjun Kapoor fan passed comments against Janhvi and Khushi. The post read, “No matter how chaotic it is, wildflowers still spring up in the middle of nowhere.”

Anshula immediately took charge and shut the troll by asking not to abuse her sisters. She also deleted the comment written by the troll. She also wrote, “Hi, I’m requesting you to refrain from using abusive language especially towards my sisters, I do not appreciate it & have therefore deleted ur comments. While I am grateful for your passion & love for bhai & me, just a small correction – I was never working outside India. Let’s please spread joy & good vibes. Thank you for the love (sic).”

Anshula shuts trolls

In an emotional note penned by Boney after the loss, he thanked Arjun and Anshula for being his “pillars”. Arjun, in fact, went to Dubai to bring Sridevi’s mortal remains and was beside with Janhvi and Khushi throughout the last rites.

Sridevi breathed her last in Dubai on March 24. The death certificate claims that she died of “accidental drowning” in the bathtub of her hotel room. The legendary actress was cremated with complete state honours on February 28.

The gorgeous and extremely beautiful Raima Sen, who is predominantly seen in Bengali films, is awaiting the release of her Hindi film, ‘Kuldip Patwal: I didn’t do it’. The 38-year-old actress is a talented actress and considers film sets her home. With films such as ‘Parineeta’ and ‘Chokher Bali’, she has carved a niche for herself. With her exotic looks and beauty, she is here to conquer the hearts of many! With a soft voice on the other side of the cellular phone, Raima shared some unknown facets of her professional and personal life with mid-day online.

Excerpts from the interview:

How was your experience shooting for the film ‘Kuldip Patwal: I didn’t do it’. Aren’t such roles taxing enough?
It was a thrilling experience. Since the entire film has been shot in the courtroom, the film’s director (Remy Kohli) had strictly asked us to stay at the location from morning 7 am till 7 pm. It did not matter if you are shooting or not, one has to be present on the set and watch out for the entire shoot.

Any particular reason behind it?

That’s because everyone right from Deepak Dobriyal, Gulshan Devaiah, and others they are all from the theatre background. So, maybe that’s their method of getting into the character. It was a wonderful experience working with them.

What attracted you towards the script?
The fact that I would get to play a lawyer was in itself appealing. I have never played a lawyer and I always wanted to do such a role.

What is the difference shooting for Bengali films and Hindi films?
There’s no difference when it comes to the shooting process. I have always been on the sets and would always go on the sets with my mother (Moon Moon Sen) for shooting. I have grown on the sets there (Kolkata). It feels home, where we all gather in one vanity van and have tea, snacks together. There’s a homely feeling, whereas, in Mumbai, it’s very professional. You just sit alone in your own vanity van. I’ve done Parineeta but I had Shoojit Sircar (film’s director, who is Bengali), then ‘Honeymoon Travels’ we shot in Goa, ‘Manorama Six Feet Under’ we shot in Mount Abu. So, when we are shooting outstation, the entire crew gets together.

What have been your best works till date?
It has to be ‘Chokher Bali’ (Bengali film). The film has been my life’s turning point and has changed my life completely. So, this is one film that will always have a special space in my heart.

Is it a deliberate choice of doing more of regional films than Hindi cinema?
In Kolkata here, the roles that I’m approached with are based on real-life stories and as a protagonist. I have worked and is working with some of the best directors here. When I’m getting good offers here and the best of everything why should I compromise with little and feel frustrated? In Hindi cinema, if I get offers of doing five films, out of those five, I might say yes to two because it is meant for me and will go ahead. But the other three are just not appealing.

If not an actor, what would you be?
I’m still figuring that!

Well, in one of its first, you and Riya have been right there in the industry with your maternal surname. Hats off for that but was it a conscious decision?
So, it was during my first film ‘Godmother’, my director (Vinay Shukla) said that your passport, pan card, and all other official documents have your dad’s name ‘Bharat Dev Barma’. Do you want to continue with it? Since my mother and grandmother were already established and renowned with the surname ‘Sen’, he suggested that we go ahead with Sen and it really worked for us.

How does it feel when one says that you resemble your grandmother Suchitra Sen?
It feels great because even now when I go out, people want to come and just touch my hand because I look like my grandmom, Suchitra Sen. She is still such a living legend.

What kind of a relationship do you share with sister Riya Sen?
We are best friends but she has mostly lived in Mumbai and I have been here in Kolkata. And now that she is married, she is settled in Delhi. However, we take each other’s advice before doing anything.

What do you have to say about the online trolls? Do you think the trolls are crossing the line in every manner?
This is a part and parcel of life. One has to live with it because if you are a public figure then you will constantly be in the public glare.

Has Raima found the love of her life?
Not yet, even I am waiting. And ever since, Riya has got married, everyone keeps asking me when I am getting married. It’s not about only getting married; it’s about finding a perfect person. So, I’m waiting for my Prince charming to just come and take me away.

Bollywood actress Fatima Sana Shaikh is trending online courtesy her latest Instagram picture where she is seen showing off her navel in a beautiful blue saree. Fans have noticed how the ‘Dangal’ actress bears a striking resemblance to ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ heroine Katrina Kaif in the photo. Fatima’s snap has been flooded with comments about how she looks like a Katrina Kaif ‘clone’. While several followers have gone gaga over how beautiful the ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ girl looks, some trolls noticed the ‘scar’ below Fatima’s belly button and commented on it, with a user even going to the extent of calling it ‘operation bitemark’.

Fatima, however, has ignored her haters and silenced them by sharing a new picture on her Instagram. 

Last month, too, Fatima Sana Shaikh became the target of trolls for posting a ‘shameless’ selfie in saree. In the photo, Fatima looked elegant in her simple traditional avatar and sported long locks as part of her look for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. While Fatima received many compliments for the snapshot, some netizens trolled her and left nasty comments on her photo.

In June as well,Fatima Sana Shaikh was attacked online for wearing a swimsuit during Ramzan. She had shared a stunning photo where she is seen wearing a halter neck monokini and high waist shorts. She was posing by a pristine beach in Maldives. Fatima’s pictures, however, garnered negative response from some netizens who shamed her for wearing a swimsuit and dressing inappropriately during the holy month of Ramzan.

Fatima Sana Shaikhmade a successful Bollywood debut last year with her role of wrestler Geeta Phogat in the Nitesh Tiwari-directed movie ‘Dangal‘. Aamir Khan played her on-screen father Mahavir Singh Phogat. Fatima Sana Shaikh is all set to work with her ‘Dangal’ co-star Aamir Khan again in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. The Yash Raj Films project will be helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who earlier directed Aamir in ‘Dhoom 3’. The movie also features megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. It is the first time that Bachchan and Aamir are collaborating on a film. The movie is slated to release in Diwali 2018.

Nawazuddin-SiddiquiNawazuddin Siddiqui and his brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui on Thursday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate office’s zonal office in Lucknow in connection with an online fraud case. They were investigated by the authorities for an hour. Calling the allegations baseless, Shamas reportedly said that all allegations levelled against them are false and that they have shown all their papers and mails to the authorities.

Their lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee has now offered his statement and clarified the whole situation on his Twitter account. He wrote, ”Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee representing Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui states that there seems to be a lot of chaos and confusion with regards to a summons received by my client Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui from the Directorate of Enforcement. In this regard I would, therefore, like to clarify once and for all that my client has only rendered services for a company named Webwork Trade Links Pvt. Ltd. as a professional (Actor), and he has no other dealings with the said company which is under investigation conducted by the Enforcement Directorate. The remuneration that my client had legally and justifiably received towards his professional services had been duly declared to every concerned government department on time, even prior to the investigation. My client who has followed the provisions of law at every stage has absolutely nothing to fear or hide, as there is no guilt. The Enforcement Directorate which is investigating the said matter has been accordingly briefed from our side.”


Digging the money trail while investigating an e-commerce scam, the Enforcement Directorate discovered links between the directors of Webwork Trade Links Private limited and Nawaz. It had earlier served him a notice asking him to explain the Rs 1.15 crore he had received from the company.

Shamas was quoted saying that Nawaz did a TV commercial for a product called ‘’ and he is in no way concerned with the parent company Webwork Trade Links Pvt. Ltd. It was the parent company that faced problems with the ED and Nawaz was just routinely summoned to inquire about the monetary link between the Siddiquis and the company, Shamas reportedly added.

One of the most controversial contestants on ‘Bigg Boss 11’, Arshi Khan, has grabbed headlines yet again, and this time, it is for her past antics. An old video of Arshi Khan with her female friend has gone viral online and social media users have criticised the clip for being ‘vulgar’ and ‘cheap’. Here’s a screenshot from the video doing the rounds on social media:

In the ‘Bigg Boss 11‘ house, Arshi Khan has created quite a stir with her loud behaviour. She has had ugly spats with Hina Khan, Sapna Choudhary and Shilpa Shinde in the house. Even host and superstar Salman Khan has warned Arshi Khan about her abusive language in the ‘Bigg Boss 11’ house.

Arshi Khan is not new to controversies. Arshi Khan has been making headlines for her alleged association with Shahid Afridi for the last few years. On September 8, 2015, Arshi tweeted about her relationship with Shahid Afridi. “Yes, I had sex with Afridi! Do I need the Indian media’s permission to sleep with someone? It’s my personal life. For me it was love,” Arshi Khan tweeted. Following the revelation, a fatwa was issued against Arshi Khan by a mufti from a Madrassa in Pakistan. Arshi Khan had also received threat calls following her admission of having sex with Shahid Afridi.

In 2016, Arshi Khan claimed that she was pregnant, a statement that sparked rumours of Shahid Afridi being the father of her baby. Arshi Khan, however, didn’t clarify at that time if Shahid Afridi was the father of her child. Later, in an interview, Arshi Khan, denied being pregnant.

Last year, a video of her stripping naked for cricketers had gone viral online. Arshi Khan has done several photo shoots, with many of them creating a stir online for nudity. One of Arshi Khan’s most controversial photo shoots has been the one where she stuck pictures of Pakistani cricketers on her chest.

Social media is a weird place. On one hand, you’ll see people wax eloquent about morals and ethics, and so on, and on the other hand, these are the same people who often forget that there are limits to what one can say.

It has now become a trend for trolls to pass absurd comments every now and then. Look, we totally support ‘freedom of speech’ but how about people understanding that there is a fine line between expressing yourself and writing ridiculous statements online.

And once again, social media has given us a great example of how expressing an opinion can go wrong on so many levels.

A troll abused Arjun Kapoor and called him a rapist, criminal and a creep. Now, do you get what we are talking about? This kind of slander is absolutely not acceptable.

Obviously, this would have made anyone in their right mind rather angry, but Arjun decided to give back to the hater in an eloquent and graceful manner.

Arjun Kapoor(c) Twitter

A few days ago, while talking to a leading daily, he said, “First of all, social media has no bearing of male or female. It acts as a kick for people, who get pleasure out of hiding behind a keyboard. There is no binary in the trolling happening — males troll females and vice versa. I find it appalling, but that is society. It is shameful, but the reality is that trolling exists. You will never be able to stop it, unfortunately, because that is the power of social media. You can say what you want to and get away with it. This can’t be called a violation, as it’s everyone’s freedom of speech.”

He tweeted out, “This is an all-time low at trolling I feel…a woman, a girl shamelessly and causally using the term rapist isn’t trolling its saddening.”

This is an all time low at trolling I feel…a woman, a girl shamelssly and causally using the term rapist isn’t trolling it’s saddening…

— Arjun Kapoor (@arjunk26) October 6, 2017

Isn’t that reply just spot on? The girl has now deleted her tweet, and maybe she realised it was wrong of her to use those words. You can absolutely dislike someone, but please watch what you say in this day and age.

Randomly calling a guy a rapist hurts everyone the same way you casually call a girl a whore or a slut. It’s the same thing, so please stop it!
