STOP PRESS: Neetu Chandra denies going commando!

Denying reports published by a popular website, claiming that Bollywood actress Neetu Chandra did a Yana Gupta and went commando at an event this week, her publicist Dale Bhagwagar said, “Neetu Chandra is a girl with dignity and there has been no slip like this.”

The website had claimed that Neetu replicated Yana Gupta’s panty-less act and said that it seemed to be “intentional and she might have followed it, after seeing what Yana Gupta has achieved doing the same.”

But her publicist dismissed the report as a case of misreporting. “Neetu does not need to resort to any such thing for publicity. In fact, she was planning to initiate legal action on the website and was in the process of approaching the National Commission of Women (NCW) in New Delhi, when the site tendered an unconditional apology for the news. So the matter stands closed.”

What can we say but… all is well that ends well.

Big B, John, Neetu among top 10 voice bloggers

According to monthly rankings of celebrities on ‘mobile social media’, Amitabh Bachchan, John Abraham and Neetu Chandra have featured among the top ten voice bloggers of the country.

“Voice blogging is not only a fantastic concept but a unique opportunity for actors to directly connect with their audiences. When I began, I had no idea it would be so much fun and such a huge success. Now sometimes, I even reveal little secrets about my life and career on my voice blog,” says an elated Neetu Chandra.

 

The other names in the top ten category include Sonu Nigam, Lara Dutta, R.Madhavan, Ravi Kishan and Harbhajan Singh. Closely following the top ten names, are celebrities like Priyanka Chopra (a new entrant to the concept), Emraan Hashmi and Riya Sen.

 

The results are based on Bubble Motion’s voice blogger rankings and showcase India’s most popular voice bloggers based on their number of followers across top of the line service providers like Reliance Communications and Bharti Airtel.

 

To follow a voice blogger, fans dial a short code on their mobile phone and pay a monthly subscription fee. They are notified by SMS whenever a voice update is recorded by the bloggers they’re following.

Ashmit Patel’s parents appeal to ‘save’ their son

With just a day remaining for Bigg Boss Season 4 to come to an end, contestant Ashmit Patel’s parents, Asha and Amit Patel, are keeping their fingers crossed for their son.

 

Though Ashmit has repeatedly proved that he is the ‘most genuine’ Housemate, the boy is facing very strong competition from Shweta Tiwari, Dolly Bindra as well as The Great Khali.

 

Meanwhile, there is widespread speculation about ex-contestant Manoj Tiwari having ‘bought’ and manipulated votes by the lakhs to make his old friend Shweta Tiwari win the show.

 

Ashmit’s parents have appealed to all to ‘save’ their son from losing. “Please help our son Ashmit in his quest for righteousness. He is a fighter and has always stood for ethics with uprightness and honesty. In his hour of need, we feel he is lonely in Bigg Boss and needs your help,” they appealed.

 

For the sake of righteousness, Ashmit has been witnessed standing firm against the unruly Dolly Bindra, an arrogant Manoj Tiwari, and holding his own, even against The Great Khali, when the WWE strongman was physically pushing Housemates in the show.

 

If you too feel for Ashmit’s genuine nature, you can vote for him upto 99 times by sms’ing ASH to 56882 and help the righteous one survive the ones with nastiness and double standards.

Shweta Tiwari, Dolly Bindra, The Great Khali DITCH ‘genuine’ Ashmit Patel!

When Bigg Boss gave the remaining four Housemates the liberty to make a unanimous decision about removing any one contestant from the House, they were all clear about whose names they would take.

 

Shweta Tiwari and The Great Khali wanted Dolly Bindra to leave and they discussed this in detail. In turn, Dolly wanted Shweta to leave. But Ashmit Patel voluntarily accepted to leave the House if that made the other Housemates happy. At this time, all the three other contestants strongly objected to Ashmit’s words and sacrifice, saying he should not leave. They reassured him that they stood by him and supported his continued stay in the House.

 

But when Bigg Boss asked the Housemates about their final decision, to everyone’s surprise, ALL three of the others – Dolly Bindra, The Great Khali as well as Shweta Tiwari – took a U-turn, unabashedly deserting and ditching Ashmit Patel for their personal gain of staying put in the House.

 

Exposing their double-standards, they all agreed to Ashmit’s ouster, without giving it second thought.

 

But God had other plans for the most genuine man on the show. As it turned out to be, Bigg Boss asked Ashmit to open the mysterious ‘red box’ which was given to Dolly two days ago, and the person who was voted out by the contestants, was not only allowed to stay back in the House, but also earned an extra prize money of five lakhs.

 

“Jaako raakhe saiya maar sake na koi,” remarked Ashmit’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar outside the House. If you too feel for Ashmit’s genuine nature, you can vote for him upto 99 times. Just sms ASH to 56882 as many times as possible and help the righteous man survive the ones with double standards.
