The Rock On actor shared a photo on his social media handle where he can be seen walking hand-in-hand. The photo was not new but was even earlier shared by Shibani but she kept the man in question under cover.

The internet went berserk when Shibani shared a post on her social media handle, and the fans started speculating about the man she held hands with on her vacay, but now Farhan has cleared the air and has made it all official with heart emoji.

A post shared by Farhan Akhtar (@faroutakhtar) on

Although the actor never shared a permanent photo on his Instagram handle, he gave cues and dropped hints a couple of time.s. The actor shared a photo of his lady love on her birthday this year and wrote a simple text but the ‘kiss’ emoticon was enough fodder for the rumour mills.

 

Recently, Farhan openly condemned his cousin Sajid Khan’s actions and actress Amrita Puri showed her displeasure on Twitter and stated that she finds it hard to believe that Sajid’s family and industry friends were not aware of Sajid’s actions. Farhan strongly opposed Amrita’s insinuation that his family and were aware of Sajid’s behavior and Shibani too stood by his beau’s side.

Love Is In Air: Priyanka Gives Kiss To Her Fiancé Nick Jonas

Nick & Priyanka are soon going to be married. Honestly, it still hasn’t sunk in. The speed at which they are moving towards their wedding date is a tad weird. We mean they are rushing.

Guess when you know you know. But we have to agree they make a cute pair. Nick with that jawline and a sweet smile can make any girl go weak in the knee. As for PC, well, she is a perfect example of beauty with brains. Presently, the lady is in the US and is having fun in LA.

But she is also loving being with her beau so much so that she has posted a really good-looking pic of Nick on her Insta story with a KISS emoji. If that doesn’t make you want to be in love, nothing will.

As per a Mumbai Mirror report, Priyanka and Nick are supposed to attend a wedding in Italy. A source told the daily, “Priyanka completed the first schedule of Shonali Bose’s The Sky is Pink with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim earlier last week and will now only join them again towards the end of September.

She had stayed back to complete some prior commitments and spend time with her family before heading to the US, a trip that was planned well in advance. During the month-long trip, the actress will also be attending a wedding in Italy with Nick, the bride reportedly being the daughter of a corporate bigwig.”

Finally someone made sense in the Kangana -Hrithik spat

Hrithik, who chose to remain silent over the entire controversy with Kangana for a while finally opened up on Thursday by issuing statements describing his side of the story and revealing a few details that the public was unaware about. Here’s the Hrithik’s statement-

Among all this, Hrithtik also appeared for an interview on Republic TV. Here’s the full interview-

And a day after he appeared on Republic TV, for his first ever interview over his spat with Kangana Ranaut, actor Farhan Akhtar penned down an open letter appealing everyone to not take sides or jump into a conclusion in the matter until the truth prevails.

Without naming the two involved parties, the 43-year-old actor, who also co-starred with Hrithik in ZNMD(Zindagi na milegi dobara) expressed his worries and concerns over some sections of media who treated the case in an unfair way by only pushing one side of the story without any evidence of the claims made by the actress.

“Some of our most reputed journalists have, consciously or unconsciously, pushed one side of the narrative without having or presenting any evidence to back the claims being made by the woman. They’ve accepted her story at face value.
Isn’t this discriminating against the other party?”

Farhan further mentioned that being an initiator of MARD foundation in 2013, he’s aware of a few cases where men were stalked, harassed and falsely accused.

Farhan further highlighted a series of events where Kangana’s case in the matter seemed weak against Hrithik and concluded the post by urging people to stop vilifying the actor on the basis of unsubstantiated statements.  If a woman was to receive these sort of emails from a man and she claimed harassment, what would your immediate reaction be?
Would you have given the man the benefit of doubt by believing him if he said they were in a relationship and she had hacked into his computer and sent herself the mails..?
Chances are you wouldn’t.

This is what he posted on Facebook: 

Supporting and agreeing to what Farhan said, celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and Yami Gautam also re-tweeted his post on their Twitter account.

For over a year now, we had only heard Kangana Ranaut narrating her side of the story and Rakesh Roshan who’s been backing and speaking up in public for his son Hrithik in the on-going spat between both the actors.

 

Following his move, several Bollywood celebrities including Twinkle Khanna and Dia Mirza came out in his support.

Last year, the actor had sent a legal notice to the actress for allegedly maligning his image by calling him her “silly ex” in an interview. Kangana didn’t stop there and made many serious allegations against Hrithik.

In April this year, he even filed a police complaint against the actress accusing her of sending explicit emails, stalking and hounding him.

 

Farhan Akhtar dedicate songs to Yerwada Jail prisoners; Takes jail inmates to surprise

Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar along with the co-stars of ‘Lucknow Central’ launched a new song from the upcoming film before 4,000 inmates at the Yerwada Central Jail here.

They got together at the jail premises on the 71st Independence Day on Tuesday. It turned out to be a special day not only for the inmates who got an opportunity to watch Farhan, also a singer, singing live for them, but also a heart warming moment for the team of ‘Lucknow Central’.

Director Ranjit Tiwari said to the crowd, “Nothing could have been more apt than sharing the song with you people because the story of our film revolves around four inmates who have a dream of singing”. It was interesting to watch how actors Inaamulhaq and Deepak Dobriyal played body percussion as a part of the song, that they have learnt as a part of the film.

The occasion was graced by actors Diana Penty, Ronit Roy, Rajesh Sharma, Ravi Kishan, apart from Inaamulhaq and Deepak, along with the music directors Rochak Kohli and Arjuna Harjai. The higher authorities of the jail were a part of the event too. Sharing a glimpse into the story of the film and their characters, the actors also urged all the inmates to never lose hope and continue dreaming.

Farhan said, “If you dream and walk towards it, it will come into reality one day. On the other hand, I also think that it is the responsibility of the society to accept you people as normal citizens and give equal opportunity once you go out of the jail”. All the inmates were clapping and cheering in response to the music and their performance.

One of the inmates also sang ‘Chahunga tujhe main sanjh sawere’, a constable crooned the patriotic track ‘Ae mere watan ke logon’ which made everyone emotional. And then Farhan and Kohli had an impromptu jamming session on the popular track ‘Rock On!!’

Farhan also recited poetry from the film ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, followed by songs ‘Yaari’ from the film ‘Wazir’. Keeping in mind the interest of the inmates, the jail authority said they will consider the idea of arranging a special screening of the film ‘Lucknow Central’, which is releasing on September 15.

With Farahan, I don’t want to be a possessive girlfriend anymore says Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha kapoor who is  busy with the promotions of her upcoming film ‘Half Girlfriend’. This film is going to be release worldwide on 19 May, it is based on the novel of the same tittle written by Chetan Bhagat.

Recently, Shraddha has been rumoured to be having an intimate love affair with Farhan Akhtar. Rock On 2 co-stars Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor’s off screen chemistry was the talk of the town. In fact, stories were even doing the rounds that Shraddha had packed her bags and moved in with her rumoured boyfriend , only to be dragged back home by her livid father Shakti Kapoor. While Shakti kapoor rubbished the reports.

In this Bollywood Industry, relationships are very fragile and one has to handle them with utmost care. Also, when you are celebrity, it becomes almost impossible to escape from prying eyes of the media and paparazzi. Shraddha recently said in an interview that she would love to go on a long drive with Farhan Akhtar and the reason she gave might make you fall off your chair. After getting so much hype with this rumors, now in an interview Shraddha rubbished the news, has touched upon love, Farhan Akhtar, and life.

“Rumors are rife that these two are a couple, much to the annoyance of their family members” and added ‘What I can’t control, I ignore. Because there’s no truth in it.  And my focus is films. I don’t focus on rubbish stories that people write about me. As actors we work hard to deliver a good performance. Reporters should be responsible when they write about us. Link-up rumors are not fair. It affects my family also. But now I have learnt to ignore it”.  When asked about his relationship status  Shraddha  did spill the beans on her alleged affair with her ‘Rock On 2’ co-star. “I’m happy being single and focusing on my work. Agar boyfriend hota toh main distract ho jaati.  Right now I don’t feel it’s necessary.  Yes, sometimes it’s difficult to give time to a relationship. But I don’t believe it’s impossible. If you want to have a relationship, you will manage to balance it with work. My definition and understanding of love keeps evolving. My current understanding of love is that when it happens you cannot deny it; you can’t help it, no matter what you do. I view love as a necessity. Pyar har insaan ki zindagi me bahut zaroori hai. but I don’t want to be a possessive girlfriend anymore. I want to give space to that person. Allow them to do what they want.” Shraddha seemed serious when she talked her life partner “Earlier, I was like my man should have a good sense of humor, a sense of adventure… But now I realize that love can happen with anyone, anytime, anywhere. And when it happens, I won’t be checking for those qualities in him. Because when you connect with someone, that’s all that matters.”

Farhan Akhtar and Aditya Roy Kapur fight over Shraddha Kapoor at a party

The two actors Aditya Roy Kapur and Farhan Akhtar have indulged into an ugly war of words, and the reason behind the spat is said to be Shraddha Kapoor.

Before rumours of Shraddha Kapoor’s closeness with Farhan Akhtar, it was her alleged ‘Aashiqui’ with Aditya Roy Kapur that was the talk of the town.  The gossip still kept flourishing around with both the co-stars. If belief in the rumours, Farhan Akhtar and Aditya Roy Kapoor went into an ugly fight and the issue burgled up between them was shraddha. Less did we know that even Bollywood celebrities feel insecure of their beau’s?

Very well can we see that yes Farhan was pretty much insecure with shraddha and Aditya’s closeness! shraddha and her onscreen ‘jeans’ Aditya were bonding at the 30 years of Mahesh Bhatt’s Vishesh Films celebration, which left Farhan angry.

Rock On 2 co-stars Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor’s off-screen chemistry was the talk of the town. In fact, stories were even doing the rounds that Shraddha had packed her bags and moved in with her rumoured beau, only to be dragged back home by her livid father Shakti Kapoor. Ever since Farhan Akhtar’s 15-year-long marriage with his hairstylist wife Adhuna Bhabani came to an end, his name has been linked to his leading ladies.

 

But while rumours of his romance with Aditi Rao Hydari fizzled out shortly after the release of Wazir, Farhan and Shraddha’s line-up continues to be the talk of the town. It is being said that Shraddha’s parents are unhappy with her choice – Farhan is still legally married to his estranged wife and even has two kids.

Despite the fact that both Farhan and Adhuna are no more together, they have always handled their breakup with extreme grace. Their divorce was also one of the quietest things in the industry which is noteworthy. Also, they were spotted along with their adorable daughter even despite the split! Now as she turns 50, she talks about her life now and what she appreciates about it.

In a post on Instagram, Adhuna shared a poem which mentions a ‘new’ lover!

Adhuna has revealed about everything ‘I just love’. One line reads “I just love that the father of my children is a good human being and that my new lover is a patient one…” With that, the celebrity stylist has just hinted about having moved on!

Farhan was pretty upset with Aditya and things took a wrong turn from there. As soon as Shraddha got a wind of it, she jumped in to control the damage. After Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor started dating Farhan Akhtar, who divorced his wife of sixteen years for Shraddha. Now at a recent party, Farhan got into an ugly fight with Aditya for Shraddha Kapoor.

By the looks of it, the news of Shraddha and Aditya hitting it off well at the event fumed Farhan Akhtar, who has been in the news all the while for allegedly having an affair with Shraddha Kapoor.

On Tuesday evening, as Shraddha paid Farhan a visit to mend things, Aditya’s car was also spotted few steps ahead of Farhan’s residence.

Farhan Akhtar proves that stardom never stops you from fulfilling your duties towards your parent

Farhan Akhtar is very close to his mother, Honey Irani who being a single parent has played a major role in his life, as a mother as well as the father during those important formative years. Farhan finds his mother to be one of the most sensitive and giving persons he knows.

picture courtesy: VoomPla

He respects his mother for allowing him and his sister to make their own mistakes in life and forming their own life experiences and learning from them. He is emotionally dependent on his mother and finds that it is important for him to make his mother proud of him as an atonement of all the stress he gave her while growing up.

Farhan Akhtar took his mum Honey Irani on a lunch date in Mumbai. the mother-son duo as they were leaving the venue after spending some good time together.. Farhan Akhtar carries his Bollywood lineage lightly. He comes from a line of eminent Urdu poets. His paternal great-grandfather was Muztar Khairabadi and his grandfather was Jan Nisar Akhtar

Honey Irani is an actress-screenwriter by profession and had parted ways with husband Javed Akhtar in 1985. Farhan also terms her as one of her harshest critics in his career.  Farhan’s father, Javed was not present much during his childhood days because he had opted out of his marriage to famous child star Honey Irani to live with veteran and acclaimed actress, Shabana Azmi, leaving back not only his wife but also a very young Farhan and his sister.


One can only imagine the resentment a young child would have for his father and step-mother, but it is to his mother’s credit that he didn’t grow up with any residual anger towards his father and now, a grown-up Farhan is close to his father as well as step-mother. Farhan and Javed have formed a creative team that has shown obviously glorious results in Farhan Akhtar’s films.

 

 

Wait, Shraddha Kapoor dragged back home from Farhan’s apartment by Shakti Kapoor?

Yes! You read that right. According to a report in SpotBoye, the neighbors of Farhan Akhtar got to witness a rather scandalous episode on Sunday. Talks about Shraddha Kapoor secretly living in with her Rock-On 2 co-star and rumored lover Farhan Akhtar were already abuzz in the society but the neighbors did not anticipate such an explosive incident.

On Sunday, father Shakti Kapoor and masi (aunt) Padmini Kolhapure paid a shocking visit to Shraddha and Farhan’s love nest. Their agenda was clear, they wanted Shraddha to quit the live-in arrangement and move back to their Juhu home. We don’t know whether she put up a fight or not but the episode ended with Shakti forcibly taking Shraddha back home.

The report further suggests that she did not make a scene while leaving the apartment and made a rather quiet-exit from the society. Shraddha’s parents, Shakti and Shivangi, are clearly hassled by their daughter’s romantic choice. Farhan is a father of two, who still awaits an official divorce from his estranged wife, Adhuna Babhani.

Anyways on the professional front, Farhan will be seen as Dawood Ibrahim in Arun Gawli’s biopic, while Shraddha will be seen in OK Jaanu next.
