Mumbai: There is something about Nikki Tamboli on Bigg Boss this season. Love her, hate her, you just cannot ignore her.

Early comparisons to a young Kim Kardashian — for her intricately-done lashes, well contoured face and perfect make-up — aren’t the only reason Nikki has grabbed eyeballs on “Bigg Boss 14”. The actress, whose claim to fame so far was featuring in southern films such as “Kanchana 3”, “Chikati Gadilo Chithakotudu” and “Thippara Meesam”, has managed to be a focal point of the Bigg Boss CCTV cameras also because she carries her ‘desi’ Kim Kardashian image into behavioural domain too, with her loud and uninhibited antics.

Take, for instance, Nikki’s spat with TV actress Jasmin Bhasin during a task that went viral. Nikki was freely using explicit language during the fight. On “Bigg Boss”, where ugly behavior is directly proportional to getting maximum votes, Nikki’s run continues full throttle. Ever since she entered the house, she has managed to be centre of attention for the audience, the housemates and the three Toofani Seniors we have seen till recently — Sidharth Shukla, Hina Khan and Gauhar Khan. If season 13 winner Siddharth dictated almost all that went on in the house during his stay, he was mostly seen favouring Nikki during his stint. For instance, Sidharth made Nikki a “confirmed contestant” and also declared her as the winner of the Sid Island task.

Fans loved their camaraderie so much that for a change #SidNaaz took a backseat and #SidBoli started to trend. It’s been just over two weeks for Nikki in the house and she has managed to get a strong fan following on social media. She currently has over 680K followers on her verified Instagram account. An unverified account on Twitter, handled by Team Nikki Tamboli, has a following of 24.4K.

Nikki knows you need a close ally to survive in the Bigg Boss house, and for now she has managed to charm playback singer Kumar Sanu’s son Jaan, a contestant in the show hosted by Salman Khan. Jaan is always seen favouring or helping Nikki in the house. The two are always seen together in the show. Even when they had a fallout during the captaincy task, Jaan was seen going to a “teary eyed” Nikki and making up to her.

The two were also selected for a Navratri task, where Jaan gave her a facial and the two were later seen dancing to the Shah Rukh Khan number “Udi udi jaaye”. The highlight of the entire segment was Nikki sweetly planting a peck on his cheek.

She also managed to strike up a heated argument with the entire house during the first week over getting clothes from BB Mall, from where the housemates could only pick seven items a day. Nikki wanted two items, which made the others feel that she was being inconsiderate about those who do not have anything, and wanted just one piece of clothing.

In just a fortnight she has had an incessant stream of fights, most recently with her group including Rahul Vaidya, Nishant Malkani and Jaan, whome she called “fake”. She crossed over to the red zone side to be with Pavitra Punia and Eijaz Khan.

In a season that has been mostly hogged by seniors such as Sidharth Shukla and Gauahar Khan, Nikki has managed to stay in the limelight using any means possible. The question is, will it help her survive the entire season? Or, will her attention-seeking antics run out of steam after a point? Watch this space.

Hindi Film Industry’s Heart & Soul In Mumbai, Says Association After Proposed Move To UP

Yogi Adityanath had recently unveiled an ambitious plan to set up the film city in Noida and rolled out an open offer to film fraternity to come to Uttar Pradesh.

Film City Mumbai

The Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA) on Friday wrote a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, stressing that the film industry will continue to stay in the city.

The letter comes days after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath proposed an alternate film city in UP.

Adityanath had recently unveiled an ambitious plan to set up the film city in Noida and rolled out an open offer to film fraternity to come to Uttar Pradesh.

Ahead of his Mumbai visit recently, ruling Congress in Maharashtra had alleged a conspiracy to snatch away the film city to UP, and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had vowed not to allow anybody to “forcibly” take away businesses.

In a letter addressed to Thackeray, IMPPA said they were “happy to note” that the Chief Minister had “vocally and clearly stated that Maharashtra is the birth place of the film industry.”

“Mumbai is the heart of the Hindi film industry and nobody can take it anywhere because the industry consists of its people, which are producers, directors, artistes and other technicians are the ones who form the core of the industry.

“We can assure you that our members will definitely not lose out on opportunities made available to them by other states and countries but they will never shift their base,” the IMPPA said in the letter.

The film body further asserted that Mumbai is the “heart and soul” of the industry.

“It is noteworthy that Mumbai produces majority of films in Hindi language which is the one language in the country which has kept Indians all over the world connected to each other due to the entertainment and drama provided to them by Hindi films which are the main source of saluting our culture and social fabric and keeping national integrity alive and intact.

“In the present economic scenario as the lockdown pandemic continues to wreak havoc, the birthplace of Hindi cinema is gradually becoming the graveyard and we have repeatedly pleaded that necessary steps need to be taken to save the Hindi film industry,” IMPPA added.

It said that the Maharashtra government has a responsibility to ensure the film industry’s survival.

“The Hindi film industry is also a business which needs to be nurtured and looked after and hence all benefits available to other industries have to be made available to films and entertainment industry if they are going to be a sustainable and viable proposition,” the letter added.

Kangana Ranaut

Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut on Friday reacted to legal notices piling up against her.

“Film mafia filed many cases on me, last night Javed Akhtar filed one more, Maharashtra government filing one case every hour now congress in Punjab is also joined the gang…. Lagta hai mujhe mahan banake he dum lenge (I think they will take a break only after making me great.) Thank you,” Kangana Ranaut tweeted from her verified account on Friday reacting to a news piece talking about the legal notice.

Earlier on Friday, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee sent a legal notice to Kangana, seeking an “unconditional apology” for her “derogatory” tweets against farmers and activists involved in the farmers protest against the Centre’s three Farm Laws, the committee’s president.

“We have sent a legal notice to Kangana Ranaut for her derogatory tweet calling the aged mother of a farmer as a woman available for Rs 100. Her tweets portray farmers protest as anti-national. We demand an unconditional apology from her for her insensitive remarks on farmers protest,” Manjinder Singh Sirsa, President of DSGMC tweeted.

The notice comes in the wake of a tweet from the actress alleging that the ‘Shaheen Bagh dadi’ also joined the farmers’ agitation over the new agri laws at various border points of the National Capital Region.

She had retweeted the post with pictures of two elderly women, including Bilkis Bano, and wrote that the “same Dadi” who featured in Time Magazine was “available in 100 rupees”.

On Thursday a petition had been filed in Bombay High Court against Kangana. The petitioner seeks the suspension of the verified Twitter account of the actress for allegedly spreading hatred and disharmony.

Supporting Kavita’s decision, actress Kamya Punjabi had tweeted on Thursday: “One needs lot of guts to do that… people die to be in this game n can go till any extend to win it.. u walked out of it. u have created history @Iamkavitak #KavitaKaushik #BB14 @ColorsTV.”

However, TV actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee found Kavita’s behaviour strange.
