New Delhi, Oct 8 : Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh refused to relent in his critisicm of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for issuing despicable threats and speaking about hatred during his speech at the UNGA last month as he took on actress Veena Malik on social media.

Harbhajan had tweeted, “At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan’s choice of words ‘bloodbath’ ‘fight to the end’ will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson, I expect him to promote peace.”

Taking a jibe at him, Veena retorted: “PM Imran Khan did talk about peace in his speech. He talked about the reality and the horror that will surly occur when the curfew is lifted and sadly there’s gonna be a bloodbath. He clearly states that it’s not a threat but a fear. Don’t you understand English? (sic)”

The Indian off-spinner on Tuesday shot back again, mocking Veena’s English. “What do u mean by surly? Oh is it surely ?? chill pill next time try and read before u put something in English. (sic)”

Speaking at the UNGA on September 27, the Pakistan Prime Minister had held out threats of a conventional war between the two nuclear-armed neighbours spinning out of control.

“If a conventional war starts between the two countries, anything could happen. A country seven times smaller than its neighbour what will it do — either surrender or fight for its freedom,” he had said.

Relations between the two Asian neighbours have been on a downhill ever since Indian government’s decision to abrogate provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution which provided special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Sunny Leone

Mumbai, Oct 20 : Actress Sunny Leone on Sunday penned an emotional heartfelt note to wish her husband Daniel Weber on his 41st birthday.

Calling him an amazing husband and a father, the actress confessed that she “can’t believe” how her love keeps on growing for him.

“Even after so many years together I still can’t believe how in love I am with you. You are strong, brave, so so smart, loving, generous, caring, selfless and above all the most amazing husband and father! Happy birthday my love,” Sunny wrote on Instagram.

The “Jism 2” star also posted two loved-up images of herself along with Daniel.

Sunny married Daniel in 2011. The two have three children. Sunny and her husband adopted a girl child, Nisha, in 2017, from Latur and announced the birth of her twins Noah and Asher via surrogacy last year.

In an earlier interview to IANS, Daniel, who is a musician, said that there is not even one aspect of his life wherein he doesn’t seek his star wife’s opinion.

“She probably influences everything that I do in my life. We discuss everything — not always as husband and wife but in terms of business as well. There is not even one aspect of my life that I don’t ask her opinion on — whether it is creative opinion or business opinion. That is the mutual respect that we have for each other. We respect each other and just want each other’s thought or take on something. It has been a long time since I made a unilateral decision without my wife giving her input,” he said.

Lady Gaga

New Delhi, Oct 20 : Pop star Lady Gaga, who is recovering from a nasty fall she suffered during a concert in Las Vegas, surprised her Indian fans when she tweeted a Sanskrit mantra.

“Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu,” Gaga posted on Twitter on Sunday.

The mantra encompasses the feeling of love and happiness towards the world. In simple words, it translates to “May all beings everywhere be free and happy”.

Since the post went online, Gaga’s tweet has gone viral. Some users questioned if it has something to do with her next album, while some welcomed her to Hinduism and some sent her good wishes for a fast recovery.

“Just beautiful,” one user wrote, while another posted: “Continue to heal mom”.

“Great to see Lady Gaga tweet Sanskrit Mantra which radiates the feeling of love and happiness towards the world,” one user wrote.

Back in 2011, the “Born This Way” singer had performed in the Formula 1 after-party in Greater Noida. In an interview to The Times of India at that time, she had expressed how she sought inspiration from Indian women.

“I’m very inspired by Indian women. I love how Indian women take care of themselves. Their eyes, in particular, are so beautiful. I have really never seen such beautiful eyebrows. I am an Italian woman and I love thick, beautiful eyebrows.

“After I wrote ‘Born This Way’ and I started giving interviews, particularly interviews with Indian reporters, I’d speak about rebirth and they’d say that rebirth is a huge part of the Indian culture.

“So, I began to reflect on how reincarnation was relevant for my own record and how it was about being reborn over and over again in your own lifetime in a way to kill off the evil obstacles that you’ve been through and move to a place of happiness and liberation,” she had said at the time.

New Delhi, Oct 19 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with members of the film industry on Saturday in the Capital, and several of Bollywood’s top stars were present at the event.

The focus was on inviting the film industry to create films and television shows that popularise Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism, to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.

“Gandhi is synonymous with simplicity. His thoughts reverberate far and wide. The power of creativity is immense, and it is essential to harness this spirit of creativity for our nation. Several people from the world of films and television have been doing great work when it comes to popularising the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi,” noted Prime Minister Modi.

Spotted at the occasion were several eminent stars and filmmakers, including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Jacqueline Fernandez, Imtiaz Ali, Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Basu, and Boney Kapoor.

“I would like to thank the Prime Minister for bringing us all together, that too for a cause such as this. I feel we need to re-introduce Gandhi ji to India and the world. The film industry can get self-obsessed and it is important we create work that is not only about business,” said Shah Rukh, about the need of the industry to come forward and make films on Gandhi that can help in the nation-building process.

Said Aamir, about the interaction session with the Prime Minister: “It was a wonderful interaction we had with the Prime Minister today. He was very inspiring, very warm and very deep in what he had to say. I want to appreciate the PM for thinking about this effort. As creative people, there is much we can do, and I assure the PM that we will do even more.”

For Kangana, the effort underlines the fact that Prime Minister Modi has recognised the power of the film industry.

“Modi ji is the first Prime Minister who is so inclusive of art and artistes and the film industry. Nobody has recognised the soft power of art and artistes in the country before. From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of the film industry, I thank the Prime Minister,” said Kangana.

Jacqueline said it was “an extreme honour be in the presence of PM Modi ji, and also to have a Prime Minister who is so willing to lend a helping hand to the film fraternity”.

After the session with the PM, producer Ekta Kapoor said she felt that “for the first time it seemed like there is someone who knows our industry better than us”.

Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali noted the tone of informality about the session helped. “The best thing about the session was that it was very informal. The film industry understands the informal language the best. The idea to make films on Gandhi ji will help reintroduce ourselves to Gandhi ji’s philosophy,” he noted.

Said filmmaker Anurag Basu: “When we make films, there are moments we wonder why are we doing this. Today, we got a reason, a direction. All the creative people here are extremely upbeat after the session. I feel we will see results in a year’s time.”

Producer Boney Kapoor added: “This government has always been sympathetic to the film industry right from (Atal Bihari) Vajpayee saab’s time when we were recognised as an industry. Since Mr Modi came in, he has made it a point to ensure every glitch is solved instantly.”
