Shoaib Akhtar has put out a lengthy video on You Tube clarifying everything from his OBSESSION with Sonali Bendre and Dia Mirza to the criticism Sania Mirza received due to Shoaib Maliks poor performance in the match against India. Shoaib Akhtar claimed that it is seriously unnecessary that the media has been so careless reporting unverified stories claiming he is obsessed with actress Sonali Bendre or that he carries her photo around in his wallet. He also said that it is completely baseless to allege that he wanted to kidnap and marry Bendre. The fact is that he never even met her in the first place. Shoaib said maybe he has seen in her a couple of movies but he was never a fan.He added that he became a fan of Sonali after he saw her struggle with cancer and then that he thought of her as a woman who is a role model for every human being out there. He also denied harbouring romantic interest in Dia Mirza and said that he has never met her either. Meanwhile, he also defended Sania Mirza and said that it is very unfortunate that media keeps on waiting for opportunities to dish out dirt on her. He clarified that she meeting her husband Shoaib Malik for dinner has nothing to do with his underperformance in the match against India. Check out the full video below.

Richas thoughts and opinions have also made her a leading choice as a figure internationally too, be it jury member of prestigious international film festivals or international forums, Richa is invited and has been a part of these several time in her career so far. Such achievements make her a sought after name for key global conversations and one such conversation is that of the ongoing Pride Month. Pride Month is celebrated every June across the world as a mark to the celebration of the pride flag, the LGBTQ community and a celebration of the lives of all its members and also to bring large amount of awareness.

In the view of lack of evidence, the Tanushree Dutta Me Too case of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar has been closed by the Mumbai Police. However, while the actress has stood her ground in the case asserting that she will fight ahead, reports have it that two statements have been recorded by eyewitnesses who contradict the statements given by Dutta in the case. According to these eyewitnesses the two actors were dancing several feet apart on the sets of the song of Horn Ok Pleassss.One of the witnesses included an actress, who was an assistant choreographer then on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasss claimed that Nana Patekar was indeed at Filmistan Studios and trying to learn the steps from the lead choreographer Ganesh Acharya. The veteran actor had reportedly confessed to Acharya that he is not good with dance and hence there were extensive rehearsals held for the actor to get his act right. On the other hand, Tanushree Dutta was reportedly already rehearsing for the dance and was practicing it in the studio for three days. The said choreographer has given a statement in reports asserting that they couldnt fathom what happened. According to her reported statement, when the music started for the said song, Nana Patekar was standing several feet away from Dutta and since it was an extensive dance track, there were about 300-400 dancers. A few seconds later, all they recall is that Tanushree exited the sets fuming leaving everyone baffled. She further mentioned that no one could understand what just happened. Another junior choreographer too voiced a similar thought asserting that even though they were supposed to enact the same movements, they werent dancing close to each other. These choreographers even stated that Tanushree refused to resume the shoot despite many requests made by the crew and the producer Samee Siddiqui. Samee Siddiqui too has been alleged of being an accomplice to Patekar and his intentions. In Tanushrees complaint she had claimed that Siddiqui too refused to take action against Patekar despite her complaint against him. Samee Siddiqui would have been booked under section 509, but, his statement wherein he mentioned that Tanushree refused to return to the shoot because she wanted Patekar to maintain a distance from her was a part of a secret interview. Considering that Samee was recorded without his knowledge, the police have not included it as a part of the evidence thereby leaving no evidence to prosecute him. However, Tanushrees lawyer Nitin Satpute continues to maintain that the police havent recorded the statements of the witnesses that they had presented and has closed the case without completely investigating the same.
