Neha Dhupia meets with a road accident; onlookers ask for selfies, autographs

Posted on 17 August 2017 by admin

At one point, whenever a road accident would take place, the onlookers would instantly try to help the injured and call for help. Yes, there would be some who would simply observe and not move even an inch. But in today’s times, the number of people landing up at an accident site and not helping has increased. And the reason for not helping is because they are busy taking pictures and uploading them on their social media accounts.

There have been several such instances where people have preferred to take pictures first instead of calling the police. But what happened with Neha Dhupia recently has left everyone shocked. The actress is in Chandigarh for promotions. While she was on her way to the airport to catch a flight, her car met with an accident. As a result, the traffic came to a standstill and Neha Dhupia was stalled on the road for an hour. Thankfully, neither her nor her team suffered major injuries. But what left Neha Dhupia stunned was the behaviour of the onlookers. Instead of helping the actress, the people on the road were more interested in asking for selfies and even autographs!

Posted on 17 August 2017 by admin

After a weeklong vacation in Switzerland, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan returns with baby Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. The three were captured by the paparazzi while the happy family were making their way out of the airport. The cutest star baby looked very adorable and he glared to the paparazzi as he was clicked.

The proud dad carried his son while Kareena walked along. Before leaving for her vacation, Kareena spoke to Mumbai Mirror all about her favourite holiday destination. She said, “If you hold a gun to my head and ask for my last wish, I’d want one last holiday in Gstaad. It’s the most beautiful and romantic place in the world.”

Kareena added, “I’m not a back-packer; I’m a luxury traveller. I like to relax and shop when on vacation and am completely cut off from the city.”

They left for the vacation on July 25 and reportedly stayed at an executive suite at the Royal Palace in Gstaad, a resort town tucked in the Swiss Alps.

Their vacation was fun-filled and they returned home with lots of sweet memories.

Kareena and saif’s son is a cute baby and the pretty mom once said that she kisses Taimur 20,000 times a day and it irritates him a lot.

“Taimur is always chilled out. He is so gorgeous. The only thing he doesn’t like about me is that I kiss him about 20,000 times a day,” she reveals. Neither Taimur nor Saif are very happy about this though. Kareena adds, “And he (Taimur) keeps pushing me off. Saif says why are you doing this. But I always feel like hugging him.”

On the work front, Saif had wrapped up shooting of ‘Kaalakaandi’, ‘Chef’ and ‘Baazaar’ before heading to the vacation.

While Kareena will start shooting for Rhea Kapoor’s ‘Veera Di Wedding’.

Ram Kapoor slams critics of Sunny Leone who have been trolling her for adopting a child

Posted on 03 August 2017 by admin

Just a few days ago, Sunny Leone was on cloud nine after she turned mother to Nisha Kaur Weber and announced about it on social media. While several from B-town sent congratulatory messages to the actress for the same, there were a few netizens who trolled her over her past. The actress’ former co-star and a well-wisher, actor Ram Kapoor came to the rescue who decided to give a piece of his mind to the trollers.

Readers may be aware that Sunny Leone entered the Indian entertainment industry when she was a porn-star in the US. While her past has time and again come under scrutiny, with the actress even slamming one of the interviewers who prodded her a little too much about her profession, this time around the actress had to face a similar situation on social media platforms. The trolls indicated about how her past profession would affect the future of her child.

Owing to the same, Ram Kapoor firmly condemned this social media behavior. Calling it ridiculous, he asserted that her career choices then were in a country where it was legal and allowed unlike ours where it is considered illegal.  Slamming the ones who have been claiming that Sunny won’t be a good mother, Ram further went on to state that the life choices made by the actress will not have any bearing on the kind of parent she will be. He also cited an example wherein there are chances that an office employee might turn out to be a horrible parent.

Stressing on these points, Ram Kapoor added that we as people have no right to judge celebrities, especially considering that they haven’t broken any law or done anything illegal.
