Rekha and Aishwarya share a great camaraderie and earlier last year, Rekha had penned a letter to Aishwarya.

"A woman like you who is in harmony with her spirit is like a flowing river, never stagnant. She goes where she wants to without pretence; and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.

"People may forget what you said, they may also forget what you did but they will never forget how you made them feel. You are a living example that courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently! Your deep strength and pure energy introduces you even before you speak!" She wrote.

In the letter, she appreciated Aishwarya for her career choice.
"The worst thing you did was to be present with the present' with gratitude. You pursued the things you loved doing; and then did them so well that people can't take their eyes off you! You on your own are enough with nothing to prove to anyone. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away."

Aishwarya reveals about her roka ceremony with Abhishek

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked down the memory lane and revealed about her sudden roka ceremony with Abhishek Bachchan.


In the interview, the actress also revealed how Abhishek proposed to her. "He proposed, which was amazing! And it happened like really suddenly. I didn't even know there's something called a roka' ceremony. We are South Indians, so, I don't know what a roka is and suddenly there is this call from their house to ours; we are coming'."

She added, "Abhishek was like 'We are all coming and I can't stop dad. We are on our way. We are coming to your place'. I'm like, Oh my God!' So, this roka is happening with a call to my father, who is out of town." But, she said, 'Mum is here, we are here. They've all arrived home, they are emotional and all. I'm like, Oh my God, it's happening.' Then it's like, come on, let's go home'. I'm like, Mom, okay... is this...is this an engagement? Like, what just happened?'"

After dating for a year, Abhishek and Aishwarya got married in 2007 after. In her recent candid interview, Aishwarya opened up about her relationship with Abhishek. When asked whether the two fight she said, "Genetically, we both have been given very strong genes. Inherently, we both have very strong personalities. There is a very fine line between arguing and discussing and that we are still probably discovering what is what. So, we discuss a lot, either politely put it as discuss, probably argue."

On the recent Karan Johar's chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’, Abhishek Bachchan shared the couch with his elder sister Shweta Nanda and the trio had a very interesting chit-chat. When Karan asked Junior Bachchan whom he was more scared of, Jaya or Aishwarya, he picked his mother.

Bollywood reacts to Rajkumar Hirani’s sexual allegation

Bollywood expressed shock after noted filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani was accused of sexual harassment by a woman who worked as an assistant for ‘Sanju’. Celebrities like Dia Mirza, Vinta Nanda, Sharman Joshi expressed shock over the allegation.

Rajkumar Hirani totally rubbished the allegation.


“I was completely shocked when these allegations were brought to my notice about two months back. I had suggested immediately that it is essential to take this matter to any committee or any legal body. The complainant has chosen to go to the media instead. I want to very strongly state that this is a false malicious and mischievous story being spread with the sole intention of destroying my reputation,” Hirani’s statement read.

Dia Mirza, who worked with Hirani in ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ and ‘Sanju’, told PTI that she is deeply distressed by the news. “As someone who has known and respects Raju Sir for 15 years I can only hope that a due official enquiry is conducted. He is one of the most decent human beings I have ever worked with and I think it would be grossly unjust on my part to speak on this as I do not know the details,” the actor said.

Sharman, who played Raju Rastogi in Hirani’s ‘3 idiots’ wrote# “Raju Sir, is a man of immense integrity, character, honour, compassion and truthfulness, all the virtues one would imagine are non existent in people today, someone I am absolutely inspired by and have learnt from and because of whom I believe I have gone onto being a better person.

“All I want to say is that this too shall pass and I can imagine how demeaning it might be to even stand up for yourself in a situation such as this,” the actor told PTI.

Without taking any names, Vinta Nanda tweeted, “The latest on #MeToo is so disturbing. Who is it that women can trust? Can’t deal with these words anymore – “At the outset, our client states that the allegations made against him are false, mischievous, scandalous, motivated and defamatory.”

Veteran actor Amardeep Jha, who was seen playing Sharman Joshi’s mother in ‘3 Idiots’ and Anushka Sharma’s mother in PK, told Bollywood Life, “I’m shocked. I cannot even believe this. He was a man whom I used to look up to. On the sets, he used to be like a walking angel. After hearing the news, I have lost my mental peace. This is something that will be running in my head for so long.”

She further added, “I cannot pass any judgement on the girl but I strongly believe he cannot do this. But I really hope and pray that whosoever is the innocent his/her truth should be out and should get justice.”

Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan to star in Mani Ratnam’s next

If everything goes well then soon Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will team up with Amitabh Bachchan after 11 years for Mani Ratnam’s next, which is tentatively a periodic drama.


Talking about her forthcoming project, Aishwarya said, “There is a discussion about a film, but we have to really pick up our conversation from where we left it. Mani is one of my favourite filmmakers.”

A source adds Ash has given green signal to the mammoth project.  “It’s a big-budget historical drama, which is being planned on the lines of the Baahubali franchise. It’s likely to be a bilingual project and star several other big names from the South Indian film industry. Mani approached his muse Aishwarya for the female lead and she signed on the dotted line.”

The film will be in the line of ‘Baahubali’ franchise. It will be made on a large scale and will be released in multi-language.

Speaking about the project, the film is an adaptation of Kalki Krishnamurthy’s popular historical novel Ponniyin Selvan (The Son of Ponni). The source told DNA: "There will be an ensemble cast. The actors have already been asked to give bulk dates and commit a few years to this film, as it will be made in several parts”.

The five-volume book narrates the story of Arulmozhivarman, who was crowned as Rajaraja Chola I during the 10th and 11th century. A big announcement is expected to be made around Pongal (January 14).

The director is planning to rope in Amitabh Bachchan.  The source tells us, “Mani has narrated the script to Amitji. He is taking his time to decide whether he would like to do it. A confirmation from his end is yet to come but he has liked the idea.”

If Big B gives his nod then 11 years after ‘Sarkar raj’, audience will get to see Ash and Big B together ons-screen.

Farhan Akhtar to marry girlfriend Shibani Dandekar soon

It is strongly buzzed that Farhan Akhtar will tie the knot with girlfriend Shibani soon. The couple has been dating for sometime and now they are geared up to take their relationship to the next level.

"They are extremely serious about each other and Farhan's kids have also warmed up to Shibani, so this looks like the most obvious step for the two," a friend of the couple told the daily.




















Farhan and Shibani are going string and the duo often shares lovey-dovey pictures of their outings.

They have known each other since November 2015.         

However, when asked both Farhan and Shibani chose not to speak about their new relationship.

In an interview, when the VJ was asked about her relationship with Farhan, she replied, "I am not secretive, but I don't feel the need to say things out loud."

In an interview to a daily, Shibani said that she doesn't feel like making any announcement about her relationship status. "I don't need to make an announcement about who I'm dating. It's up to me to decide when and what I want to share about my personal life, and it is up to the audience to decide how they look at it. How much information I want to put out in the public domain is my prerogative," said Shibani.

Their relationship became public when Shibani accompanied Farhan on his Canada tour in 2018. "We are public figures, so people are entitled to say what they want to. But I don't care about their opinion. I'm aware of who I am and I'm comfortable with who I choose to date," added Shibani.

Kader Khan buried at Canadian cemetery

Veteran actor Kader Khan, who breathed his last on 31st December, was buried at a cemetery in Canada. Huge fans and followers are gathered to pay their last respect to the departed soul. A video of the funeral and prayer meet was shared online.

After a prolonged illness, he died at the age of 81. At his funeral, his son Sarfaraz said, “My father loved you all so much that he never differentiated between us three brothers and all of you,” he said. “He used to tell us that if any one of us refused to care for him, one of you will care for him,” he added.




















“The last rites will be performed here in Canada as we have our entire family here. He (Khan) is going to be buried at approximately 2:30 pm as per Canadian time at Meadowvale cemetery,” Sarfaraz told PTI.

Talking to IANS about how his father was ignored by the film industry, Sarfaraz said, “It is the way the Indian film industry has become now. There are too many fragmented camps and loyalties. The out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality can’t be helped. My father always told us, his sons, not to expect anything from anybody and we grew up with the belief that one must do what is required in life and expect nothing in return,” he said.

After his knee surgery in India, Khan did not make any effort to walk and confined himself to wheel-chair.

Reportedly, he suffered from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a degenerative disease that causes loss of balance, difficulty in walking and dementia.

May his soul rest in peace!

During a recent round table conversation with Rajeev Masand, actresses- Rani Mukerji, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Tabu, Taapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma expressed their opinion on #MeToo.

"There should be a little sense of fear. Your work place has to be the second sacred place for you. After your home your work place is the place where you should feel the safest and if you're not feeling that way then that's the worst world to be living in," Anushka added.




















To which Rani said, "I think as a woman you have to be that powerful within yourself, you have to believe that you're so powerful that if you ever come into a situation like that you have the courage to say 'back off.' I think you have to have the courage to be able to protect yourself."

Countering her statement, Deepika said, "I don't think everyone is constructed with that sort of DNA."

Rani further said that martial arts and self-defence should be made compulsory in schools, adding that "you have to take the responsibility of your ownself."

"But why to even bring it to the point where girls should learn self-defence," Deepika said. Even, Anushka agreed to Deepika's point, however, Rani wasn't convinced. She later said, "You can’t tell mothers how to bring up their children."

Netizens seem not quite impressed with Rani's take on #MeToo and she was heavily slammed on social media. Various negative comments against her were shared.
