The year-old #MeToo movement has long failed to take root in India, but Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta’s accusations of sexual harassment against veteran actor Nana Patekar appears to be emboldening women to speak out at last. In recent days other Bollywood figures, a comedian, a best-selling author and top journalists have all found themselves accused of abusing their positions to behave improperly towards women. As the movement gathers more steam, females in the industry are coming forward exposing more prominent names.
After Aamir Khan, another actor to take a stand against sexual harassment is Akshay Kumar. Last night, Sajid Khan, who is the director of Housefull 4 was accused by a journalist Karishma Upadhyay made a revelation of sexual misconduct against him which was followed by more allegations by actresses Saloni Chopra and Rachel White. Now, as the news has left everyone startled, Akshay Kumar is also taking a stand against it.
Akshay, a while ago, took to Twitter to share that he was not in the country and he is disturbed ever since he has heard the news of sexual harassment against Sajid Khan. He has urged the producers to stop the shoot of the film until further investigation is done. Check out his tweet.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have been extremely hush-hush about their relationship and never made it official but rumours about their marriage become a buzz with several reports claiming and speculating that the couple is set to get married on November 20 in Lake Como, Italy with only a few members of close family and friends in attendance.
Deepika and Ranveer were recently in Delhi attending an event in which they spoke about a number of things including, talking about Tanushree Dutta’s claims of being sexually harassed by veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008. Both actors (Deepika and Ranveer) condemned sexual harassment at the workplace and anywhere else and also supported Tanushree for braving up and revealing the details.
“Give us a treat Deepak. Give the people what they want,” Ranveer said while asking her to say the dialogues. Now whether that is what he calls her in secret or whether it is just a slip of tongue, only Ranveer or Deepika can answer that. But assuming that it is her nickname that Ranveer calls her, we think it is very cute.
Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is busy shooting for his upcoming film ‘Simmba’, which is being directed by Rohit Shetty and also stars Sara Ali Khan. The film is being co-produced by Karan Johar and his Dharma Productions. Deepika Padukone too recently announced her next project. The actress is going to turn producer for Meghna Gulzar’s next film based on the life of an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

The most discussed recent lovebird has been spotted together with loving moms on the birthday of Ranbir Kapoor. Being a celebrity has its perks. Whether it’s the fame, the love you receive from around the world or the ability to travel around the world, a celebrity’s life is luxurious. Case in point, Alia Bhatt’s fabulous dress. Neetu Kapoor shared an adorable snap of Ranbir, Alia and the moms on Instagram on the occasion of the Rockstar’s birthday. In the photo, we spotted Alia in a pretty navy blue dress. We began looking around for it, and Alia’s association with Gucci is chic and extremely stylish.
We spotted Alia in a Jersey V-neck dress with Web that has vibrant red mid-waist a bold red bow belt. Sans make-up, Alia looked fresher than a daisy with silver ear loops and side-parted hair. Alia’s simple yet pretty dress demands a place in our wardrobes. Check it out.
We obviously began looking around for this dress to get our hands on it and the cost of the dress will definitely burn a hole in our pockets. This Gucci number costs $1,800 which will roughly cost you around Rs 1, 30, 653. While we take a moment to process that, over the last few months Gucci has gone on to become a fashion staple for most of our B-Town celebs. We’ve earlier spotted Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor, Navya Naveli Nanda, have made the Gucci logo tee look glamorous and stylish.

A decade ago, Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda made headlines when he got involved with actress and former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen. Multiple reports suggested that the two got close to each other on the sets of their 2009 film Karma, Confessions and Holi. Their relationship, however, was short-lived and lasted only for three years.
Back in 2013, when the 42-year-old actor was promoting his film Murder 3, he opened up about his relationship with the Main Hoon Na star in an interview with Times of India. He said that he was not in a relationship with ‘Miss Universe’ and did not feel a sense of conquest in any way. Randeep added that the biggest part of his relationship with Sushmita was his relationship with her daughter Renee Sen.
“I was exposed to fame although I was on the sidelines as I was not a star. The breakup was the best thing that happened to me and I realised that I gave it too much time in my life. It freed my energy to do things for myself,” the Sarbjit star said.
Later, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Randeep revealed that a lot of things went wrong in his relationship with Sushmita Sen. “Sometimes you just outgrow the relationship and then, unless you are married or seriously committed, it’s best to go your separate ways,” he said.

The year that went by saw a lot of high profile celeb weddings; the most recent and memorable one being that of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. Of course, after the wedding of the year, many B-town fans are eager to see some of their favourite actors and actresses to tie the knot with their alleged partners. While many have not acknowledged their relationships publicly, people still want to see these jodis together for the long haul. So here’s taking a look at such couples who we would like to see hitched this year.
The two have allegedly been in a relationship for the longest time and have shared their sizzling chemistry both on and off the screen. Things also seem to be getting serious as Ranveer has now been seen hanging out with Deepika’s parents and vice versa. Moreover, the ‘Padmavati’ actress has stated on more than one occasion that she is not averse to the idea of marriage. So perhaps we will hear the wedding bells ring for this star couple, hopefully.
This one is no secret of course. Varun Dhawan has been rumoured to be dating his designer girlfriend Natasha Dalal for a long time now. The two have been going steady for years and were apparently together even before Varun entered the world of showbiz. Even though the two remained tight-lipped about it for years, a picture on social media of the two attending a wedding reception put things to rest. Varun eventually admitted he’s in a relationship but remains very private about the details. Considering the long history the two share, there’s a good chance the two may get hitched this year.
Almost everyone who follows Bollywood is always curious about Salman Khan’s love life. One of the most-asked questions in showbiz is when will the ‘Race 3’ actor tie the knot, if ever. Currently, he is allegedly dating Romanian model and actress Iulia Vantur. The two definitely share an incredible rapport and have been spotted together on many social occasions. Recently, Iulia even talked about the rumours of her getting married to the B-town superstar, and she neither confirmed nor outright denied saying that everything happens at a right time. Well, this definitely looks like an encouraging sign, to say the least. Will 2018 finally be the year when Sallu ends his bachelorhood?
Sonam Kapoor and her alleged beau Anand Ahuja are another duo that has everyone’s attention. The actress has often been vocal and aggressive in denying the rumours of her dating Anand. However, the affection the two display for each other on social media speaks another tale altogether. Sonam and Anand even take vacations together, which begs the question of when the two will come out in public with their relationship, if there is anything going on. More importantly, will they take their alleged relationship to the next level this year by putting a ring on it?
Recent attacks on Africans in India have exposed the fair skin obsession of Indians. These attacks have shown the amount of racism prevalent in Indian society and to a large extent how hypocrite we are.
Skin colour obsession is not limited to just personal level but entertainment industry plays a major role to encourage it. A number of fairness creams in the Indian market and actors promoting it for money in advertisement shows how casual it is actually in India to demean black skin.
Kangana Ranaut, the queen of Bollywood has rejected 2 crores worth deal of fairness creams. She also expressed pity on those film stars who actually promote it (without taking anyone’s names).
But Abhay Deol, just a few days back came forward and openly criticized the stars like Shahrukh Khan, John Abraham, Sonam Kapoor and the like for doing a fairness cream advertisements.
WE ARE NOT A RACIST COUNTRY!I will prove it to you. In the pic below John holds a card with shades from white to dark….

While there have been no comments from any stars except Sonam Kapoor who actually tried to give a smart reply to Abhay for his tweets but got trolled in return. Though later on, she deleted it.
Abhay Deol posted this on the twitter account.
Um…this one's kinda hard to defend as it does say on the side of the packaging-"Indian women agree, skin looks…
Posted by Abhay Deol on Tuesday, 11 April 2017
Sonam replied to the tweet of Abhay by reminding him about the fairness cream add which was done by his cousin Esha Deol.
Abhay accepted it and gave a witty reply to her.
And then ‘Neerja’ actress said this as an excuse:
Though she, later on, deleted it but twitterrati couldn’t stop trolling her for it.
— Poor girl didn’t realise when to keep thoughts to herself.
