Akshay Kumar Rustom Uniform Controversy: “It’s A Crime To Sell Uniform,” Says GD Bakshi

Recently there was a news that Actor Akshay Kumar is putting up the naval uniform, which he donned in the film Rustom, for auction. But, unfortunately, this created a stir of controversy as Major General GD Bakshi has said that it’s a crime to sell uniform. In a conversation with CNN News 18, GD Bakshi said it’s a crime to sell your medals or uniforms, “Fact is a uniform is a uniform and frankly if you go through defense service regulations, it’s a crime to pawn or sell your medals and uniform. Uniform which Akshay was imitating in Rustom was as authentic as any other uniform stitched. You gave it so he can portray the role of an officer and you’re bound by the same sentiments and rules.” Akshay Kumar Rustom Uniform Controversy: “It’s A Crime To Sell Uniform,” Says GD Bakshi It was said that the proceedings from the bid will support the cause of animal welfare.

Usha Jadhav Casting Couch Documentary: Wasn’t Planned As Big Expose

Well-known Marathi actress Usha Jadhav has created a stir with her confessions on BBC World News documentary ‘Bollywood’s Dark Secret’ where she has spoken about being sexually exploited in exchange for work. “It wasn’t planned as a big expose or anything. It was an experience that I had gone through, which I had put behind me long ago. I was young, I was raw and inexperienced and I was asked for sexual favours by this person who was in a position to get me work. I had moved on,” said Usha. Usha Jadhav Casting Couch Documentary: Wasn’t Planned As Big Expose “I had the strength to get over the traumatic experience. I had put the experience behind me. Then I got to know about this documentary that the BBC was making on why the casting couch expose that had hit America after (producer) Harvey Weinstein was exposed, has not reached India’s entertainment industry. “I was asked if I had any incidents of exploitation to share. I did, and I shared it in the documentary.” Trending VIDEO: Shah Rukh Khan Dancing On Chaiyya Chaiyya Will Make You Fall In Love With Him ‘Dil Se’! Avengers: Infinity War India Box Office: Takes A NEVER SEEN BEFORE Opening! Usha said it is important for exploited girls to come forward with their experiences. “There can be a backlash, yes. You may lose the chance for work because some powerful people will see you as a snitch. But the repercussions work both ways. You may lose out on some work. But you may gain a much wider victory for the movement to stop the sexual exploitation of strugglers and newcomers who don’t know any better. “Unless more voices come forward, it (the casting couch) won’t be stopped.” Usha said she is happy she spoke up. “I never thought of the impact my disclosure will make. It was just something that needed to be told on a given platform. I wish more people from the Indian entertainment industry will come forward with their own narrative of exploitation. “It will help the #MeToo movement to reach our entertainment industry.”

Varun Dhawan’s CUTE Take On His Meme With Taimur Ali Khan!

It has been a running joke for a while, that Varun Dhawan is still a kid. The actor just turned 31 earlier this week, and had a small celebration on the sets of his upcoming film Kalank. While co-star Alia Bhatt called him a ‘3 years old’ while wishing him on Twitter, the actor himself said that he just feels like he’s 16, albeit in jest. Recently the actor shared a meme which included Taimur Ali Khan. The meme shows the two talking about Varun’s age. When Varun tells Taimur that he just turned 31, Taimur say that he thought they were the same age. Well, it’s nice to see that the actor is so cool about the jokes, rather than getting offended by them. Taimur, son to Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, has already become an internet sensation, with the paparazzi following his every move. In an interview with Aaj Tak about star kids and whether they receive special treatment, the actor talked at length about the media’s obsession with Taimur. “It’s 100% unfair, I agree. But it’s not only the industry’s fault. It is the media’s fault as well. In our country, at the moment, even Taimur Ali Khan is more famous than actors. Not just media, people also share his photos on social media.” Varun Dhawan’s CUTE Take On His Meme With Taimur Ali Khan!

He will next be seen sharing the silver screen with Anushka Sharma in Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga.

Namaste England Poster: Arjun Kapoor & Parineeti Chopra Take Off To London

Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer Namastey England is all set to hit the screens on December 7. The duo had just begun shooting for the film a few days back and now they have released the first poster of the film. Their fans surely can’t wait anymore to see the two on the big screen.

Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra will be reuniting onscreen for a second time after 5 years!

Arjun on Friday tweeted: “Me and Parineeti are back. Time to fly with us on this wonderful journey from Punjab to England December 7, 2018. ‘Namaste England‘.”

Parineeti and Arjun will extensively shoot for the film in Amritsar, followed by Ludhiana, Patiala, Dhaka, Paris, Brussels and finally London.

Directed and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, Namaste England is a young and refreshing story that traces the journey of two individuals Jasmeet and Param, and their love story across the landscapes of India’s Punjab to Dhaka, Paris, Brussels and London, said a statement from the makers.

The film is presented by Pen Movies and Reliance Entertainment in association with Blockbuster Movie Entertainers.

Apart from this film, the duo will also be seen in Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. They had recently wrapped the shooting of the film.

Two unlikely protagonists in one film are unimaginable. They are united in one thing only— their mistrust, suspicion, and hate for each other. Parineeti Chopra will also be seen in Kesari opposite Akshay Kumar.
