Deepika

Mumbai, March 12: Bollywood’s International Actress Deepika Padukone, who clinched the Entertainer of the Year honour at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards, says fame is not that important to her.

The “Padmaavat” star attended the event in a stylish white ensemble here on Sunday.

Addressing Media, Padukone said “I won’t say fame is all that important for me, but I would definitely like to say that the kind of industry I am working in and the kind of work that I am doing, so money and fame are a part of what I do, and I can’t ignore it”.

“I don’t think you can ignore the fame and the attention. It is the by-product of the work that I do. I love my work. In the last ten years, the work that I have done… I got so much to learn and I have enjoyed my work. And in future, I hope that I keep on enjoying the work that I do”, she added.

Speaking about her “Piku” co-star Irrfan Khan, who has been diagnosed with a rare illness and has been missing from action since past few weeks, is to feature with him in a Vishal Bhardwaj helmed movie.

“I think we should always pray for people and their good health. If his (Irrfan’s) health is not best at this point, I think it is important for all of us to pray, not just for him, but for everyone.

“I always say a small little prayer for myself and everyone around. Yes, I think the last couple of weeks have been emotionally challenging, but yes, I think we all should say a little prayer,” Deepika stated, adding that she has had some of her most special experiences as an actor with Irrfan.

“I think like he has requested that there are times when people need to be left alone for sometime and figure their lives out… We should respect the space they have requested for and hope for the best.”

“He has also been guided to apply to the competent authority of BMC for exemption in the home quarantine period as per the State government notification,” the official said, with the prospects of Tiwari remaining isolated till around Aug. 15.

Late on Sunday, Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey said that Tiwari was aforcibly quanratined’ even before he could initiate the probe.

Sushant Singh Rajput No More

Mumbai, Aug 2 : In an apparent retort to Bihar Director General of Police Gupteshwar Pandey’s statements vis-a-vis the probe into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the Maharashtra government on Sunday said the state police was fully capable of unearthing the truth in the case.

It also reiterated its known stand of continuing the probe by the state police and not handing it over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), as demanded by the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party and sections of Bollywood.

“The case is now being politicised for political gains. The Mumbai Police is investigating the matter thoroughly and it is capable of getting at the truth,” Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said.

He added that even if the Bihar Police have registered an offence in Patna under Chapters 12, 13 of the Cr.PC, it has to be investigated by the police in whose jurisdiction the incident took place and the case must be tried in the courts here.

“The Mumbai Police are probing the said suicide matter. I strongly condemn the demands for handing it over to the CBI,” said Deshmukh, who has earlier said at least four times that the case will only be probed by the state police.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has discussed the case status with both Deshmukh and also Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh amid the growing clamour to transfer the probe to the CBI.
