Kangana Ranaut Hits Back At Sonam Kapoor, See Tweet

It all started after Queen director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual harassment by a woman who worked with him in Phantom Films. The woman accused that he pretended to be drunk and threw himself on her bed when he came to drop her at her hotel room after a party. She, furthermore, said that he, minutes after, woke up and masturbated on her back and said “Fuck you, bitch” before leaving.

Kangana Ranaut, revealing her #MeToo story, said that she believes in the story of this woman because Vikas Bahl has made her feel uncomfortable a lot of times.

“But still every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he’d bury his face in my neck, hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair. It took me a great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. He’d say ‘I love how you smell K’. I could tell something is wrong with him.”

 

Sonam Kapoor was recently asked about the prevalent #MeToo movement in Bollywood and she said, “Kangana is obviously Kangana Ranaut. She says a lot of stuff and sometimes is hard to take her seriously. I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes. I really respect for that. I don’t know him, I don’t know the situation. If what is written what is written is true, then it’s disgusting and awful. If it’s true, then they should be punished for it,” she said.

This, of course, didn’t go down well with Kangana Ranaut, who angrily hit back at her.

“What does she mean by saying, ‘it’s hard to believe Kangana’? When I am sharing my Me Too story, who gives her a right to judge me? So, Sonam Kapoor has the license of trusting some women and some she won’t. What makes her so unsure of my claims? I am known to be an articulate person and I have represented my country in many international summits. I am called as a thought and youth influencer to these summits, I am not known because of my dad I have earned my place and credibility after struggling for a decade,” she was quoted as saying by Pinkvilla.

“She isn’t known to be a great actress, neither she has the reputation of being a good speaker. What gives these filmy people right to take digs at me? I will demolish each one of them,” Kangana Ranaut added.

Sonu Sood Is Not A Part Of Kangana Ranaut Starrer Manikarnika: Know Reasons

After a controversy over the directorial credits of Manikarnika, Sonu Sood, who was playing a pivotal role in the movie, has quit following a showdown with Kangana Ranaut. Kangana Ranaut, however, has slammed reports of a showdown. She said, “When I never met him, never directed him, when did I have this showdown?”

In a statement, the Manikarnika actor said, “Sonu and I haven’t even met since the last shot with Krish (director) last year. He is busy filming Simba. He couldn’t even give us tentative dates to match combinations with other actors. The producers showed him the film and writers narrated the patchwork to him. He refused to meet me. He vehemently denied working under a woman director, which is kind of amusing because Sonu is a dear friend and I have even launched the music of a film that he produced at his request. Even though the team suggested that they have full faith in me, it seems, Sonu had neither dates nor faith.”

“And when I last spoke to him, he suggested that I can go ahead with someone else and when I narrated the script to Zeeshan Ayyub, he called the studio and gave the dates. By that time, it was too late as Zeeshan gave me dates for September. Now I hear I had a showdown with him. When I never met him, never directed him, when did I have this showdown?” Kangana added.

Whereas Sonu Sood’s spokesperson in a statement said, “Sonu has always been a thorough professional and honoured all his commitments. He had informed the makers of Manikarnika about his dates and schedule well in advance. Inconveniencing the team of his current film, to accommodate the demands of another are against his professional principles. Sonu has taken the higher road ahead and wishes the team of Manikarnika all the best.”

Padmaavat again in controversy: Open letter war between Swara Bhaskar and Vivek Agnihotri

Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar, who recently wrote an open letter to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali where she has slammed the director for the glorification of Sati and Jauhar in his film. After many celebrities, director-producer Vivek Agnihotri has slammed Swara for her open letter.

Vivek Agnihotri took to Twitter and wrote, “We have interviewed many ‘ex-Naxal’ women in Bastar. Each has gut-wrenching stories to tell, full of abuse, rape and misogyny, if they marry, they aren’t allowed to have children. I think fake feminist @ReallySwara must make a trip to understand how the Real Vagina feels like. What women need to understand that it’s because of the fake feminists like @ReallySwara that the feminist movement gets jeopardised. You just can’t piss off people and win the most critical war of modern times – the gender empathy.” Swara, who was shocked after reading what the filmmaker had said, quickly responded and asked him a very logical question.

Swara wrote on Twitter, “I’m sorry did u just suggest that I go get myself raped? Like seriously? You typed out this tweet Vivek.? I’d say pretty low and sick even by your own abysmal standards of conduct & civility.” Vivek Agnihotri hit back saying, “Why is it that whenever we talk about empathy and understanding, fake feminists like @ReallySwara can only think of rape? You can say whatever you want, they end up translating it only with their sexually perverted dictionary.”

After Kangana’s explosive interview, Ex-wife, Sussanne, comes to rescue Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan – Kangana Ranaut scandal hasn’t blown over yet. Kangana’s latest round of interviews on various channels has brought the controversy back to life. Apart from other things, the actor spoke up on India TV’s show Aap Ki Adalat about how the Roshans influenced the Women’s Commission when she went to them for help because Hrithik allegedly threatened to leak her intimate pictures after she went public about their reported affair and break-up.
The Queen actor also talked about the mental torture that she and her family went through due to statements and allegations made against her by Hrithik and Rakesh Roshan

However, while Hrithik Roshan and his dad have chosen to keep mum after Kangana’s latest round of interviews, Hrithik’s ex-wife Sussane has tweeted in his support. Sussanne, who hasn’t tweeted since February this year, posted this on her timeline on Sunday, accompanied by a picture of herself with Hrithik:

The is no allegation or sad plot that can have the weight to triumph over a good soul. #powerofthetruth #mafamilia #goodoverevil

Last year too, Sussanne had come out in support of Hrithik on social media after Kangana’s team allegedly leaked pictures of Hrithik and Kangana getting cosy at a party.

Will Hrithik now finally break his silence about the controversy?

“I’m Upset On The Accusations Are Being Labelled On Me” Angelina Jolie On Cruel Cambodia Interview

Angelina Jolie says accounts of her casting process for children to appear in her film First They Killed My Father are false and upsetting. An excerpt from a Vanity Fair profile of the director sparked backlash online earlier this week from people who criticized the methods as being cruel and exploitative.

Adapted from Loung Ung’s memoir, the biographical drama centres on her childhood under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. Jolie co-wrote and directed the film, which she talked about in a recent Vanity Fair profile.

The article described a scene in which casting directors in their attempt to find a child actress to play the lead role presented the money to impoverished children only to take it away from them as an acting exercise.

Jolie and producer Rithy Panh issued joint statements Sunday responding to the outrage and refuting claims that the production was exploitative through a representative from Netflix, which is producing and distributing the film.

“I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario. The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting,” Jolie said. “I would be outraged myself if this had happened.”

Jolie said parents, guardians and doctors were on set daily to care for the children and “make sure that no one was in any way hurt by participating in the recreation of such a painful part of their country’s history.”

Panh, who himself is a survivor of the Khmer Rouge, added that casting “was done in the most sensitive way possible.”

He described a process that was informed both by families’ preferences and NGO (non-governmental organization) guidelines in which the children understood that they would be acting out a scene.

“The children were not tricked or entrapped, as some have suggested,” Panh said. “They understood very well that this was acting, and make belief.”

The Vanity Fair article went into more detail about the production than the one paragraph that circulated on Twitter, which sparked the initial outrage.

A representative from Vanity Fair issued a statement Sunday saying that author Evgenia Peretz “clearly describes what happened during the casting process as a ‘game’ ” and “that the filmmakers went to extraordinary lengths to be sensitive in addressing the psychological stresses on the cast and crew that were inevitable in making a movie about the genocide carried out in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge.”

Jolie’s film will debut on Netflix sometime after showing at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.

Angelina Jolie Opens About Her Rare Condition. Here’s What We Know About It.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie opened up about her personal health struggles — threats of cancer that led her to the decisions to have a preventive double mastectomy and then to have her ovaries removed.

She said she developed hypertension and Bell’s palsy, a condition she said had caused her face to droop on one side.

“Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it manifests itself in their own health,” she told Vanity Fair.

What is Bell’s palsy, a condition that affects about 40,000 other people in America each year? Although alarming, the condition is not as scary as it may seem.

“Most people will go through life without having a Bell’s palsy,” Lyell Jones Jr., a neuromuscular neurologist at the Mayo Clinic, told The Washington Post. “But for most patients who have it — whether or not they get treatment for it — they tend to do very well, and most patients will have a complete recovery.”

[Angelina Jolie talks life after Brad Pitt, reveals Bell’s palsy diagnosis in Vanity Fair interview]

Over the years, numerous other well-known figures have battled their bouts with the rare condition, including Ralph Nader, Roseanne Barr and George Clooney.

“It was the first year of high school, which was a bad time for having half your face paralyzed,” Clooney told Larry King in 2006 about the time he had Bell’s palsy.

“It’s a weird — it’s one of those things, I remember what happened,” Clooney said. He said he had been watching a film called “The Pride of the Yankees,” which follows the life of Lou Gehrig. “And he’s trying to pick up a bat and it falls out of his hand. And the next day we were sitting in church and I was in the back of the pew and my tongue was numb. And then we would always go out to dinner, go up to Frisch’s Big Boy, which is, you know, that’s where everybody went for lunch after church, after mass.

“And I was drinking and milk was pouring out of my mouth. And I thought ‘Oh, my God, I have Lou Gehrig’s disease.’ Because you know, I wasn’t the brightest kid, and eventually, your eye and everything gets paralyzed.”

Bell’s palsy, a sudden but temporary facial paralysis, occurs when the nerve that controls the muscles on one side of the face becomes inflamed or swollen, making them too weak to move,

added.

“We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them.” people in the above ongoing debate suggested that parents should not kiss their child on the lips because as it could be “confusing”. ‘Confusing!’ as what?

“If you start kissing your kids on the lips, when do you stop? It gets very confusing.”, Dr Charlotte Reznick, a child and educational psychologist at Californian university UCLA, said, but disagreeing with his quatation child psychologist Dr Fiona Martin said “It’s beautiful. Anything that promotes emotional connectivity is good. It’s certainly not inappropriate to kiss your child.”

A post shared by Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham) on

The picture of David kissing his daughter got millions of likes but at the same time was also criticised by various followers as many commented in disagreement of the action.

David’s wife Victoria was the subject of a similar debate in July last year when she posted a photo of her kissing Harper on the lips in a pool.

On Monday, Sonu Nigam got into the controversy after his continuous tweets against the culture of azaan, where he mentioned, his sleep gets disturbed and have to be woken up because of the azaan.

Not only this he also added “Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam.. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison?”

After this, Sonu Nigam faced heat on the social media and  many people criticized him for his tweet. Not only this West Bengal Maulvi issued Fatwa against Sonu Nigam, that whoever shaves the head of Sonu Nigam, will be awarded 10 lakhs.

Now it seems controversy is not coming to end, after Mika  tweeted to Sonu Nigam, where he said  “Big bro I respect u lot as a singer .. I think you should change your house and stay somewhere else instead of changing loud speakers.”

Sonu Nigam tweets against Mosques for spoiling his sleep ! Ghrr

One of the versatile singer Sonu Nigam, who has a huge fan following in the world and has given several hit songs.

Now he has landed into fresh trouble after he posted a few tweets about Muslims and the Azaan on Monday morning.

His series of tweets expressing his disgusts for Muslims using loudspeakers for azaan (call for prayers) in mosques and likened the act to gundagardi.

According to Sonu, he is regularly woken up by the Azaan which disturbs his sleep and hence is on a complaining mode. He didn’t just stop there. He went further and explained how Prophet Mohammad lived in an era where there was no electricity and compared the azaan to a cacophony?’

Nigam’s main concern was this: “I’m not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning.”

“When will this forced religiousness end in India,” the singer tweeted.

He then went on to say that he doesn’t ‘believe’ that temples and gurudwaras should wake up people with loud noises either.

And finally he came to a conclusion about mosques do it.

India is a place where freedom of speech is the strong tool, where citizens of India have the power to express one opinion’s without censorship.While there are some celebrities who cross their line and fall into controversy and we love watching them on screen when they perform scripted scenes, we love hearing them speak their own words.

He also joked ‘An old man once went to the toilet to attend nature’s call, when he returned he saw that he had not fastened the button of his pant. When asked for the reason, he replied, a road that has no treasure, what is the point of putting a lock to it?’

2) Rakhi Sawant


She is known as the drama queen of Bollywood and also  for unusual comments rather than acting, “Yaha ki Industry ne Porn Industry ko bhagvan bana dia hai,main  Sunny leone ko industry se bhagane ayi hun, bahar jao vaha lollipop kha”
