Government move to protect mediapersons

media
There was a time political parties would break media offices and bash journalists. But times are a changin’. According to a new law passed by Maharashtra Government, violence against a media person or against premises of a media institution is now a cognizable and non-bailable offence.
Such cases will be required to be investigated by a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) and will carry a prison term of 3 years and a fine of Rs 50,000. Plus, media persons and media institutions can recover compensation for any medical expenses or physical damage to their movable or immovable property.

India’s international chess master Dhyani Dave is also a master at dissecting Bigg Boss. “BB is just like a game of chess. It’s a mind game, and all the duh’s lose the fastest,” she winks.

The calculation queen of the chess board analyses this week’s nominations and predicts that Rahul Dev, inspite of “being thanda” will stay on, and so will Monalisa. “It’s going to be Karan Mehra and Lokesh Kumari who will be eliminated in the double eviction.” But how can Dhyani say for sure?

“Karan has been like a tree or a sofa in BB. He’s been like one of those sheep, who doesn’t take a stand… neither for himself or for others. People won’t vote for him,” says Dhyani. She feels it’s also time for the television actor to go home! “His wife’s birthday is coming up, he should be home,” she grins.

But Lokesh Kumari and her weird way of talking has been interesting. People have even expected her to be in the finale. “Haan, par dimaag nahin hai. She is a perfect mand-buddhi (mindless), and people have realized, she is not a player,” says Dhyani standing by her predictions and pointing out that “the novelty of Lokesh’s accent is over and done with”.

Let’s see if Dhyani’s predictions come true when Salman Khan walks in this weekend. And by the way, did we tell you that this is the same Dhyani who beat Aamir Khan at a game of chess at the age of six. He played the game with her later too. But do we need to tell you who won the second time!!

Rupali Suri is happy Salman Khan did not apologize!

 

“I always thought Bollywood stays silent during Salman Khan controversies because they fear his bigness. But this opinion changed when I met him at IIFA this year,” says actress and fashionista Rupali Suri. “I realized that people do not fear him, they respect him.”

Talking about her interview with the Sultan actor for her IIFA green carpet assignment, the Gladrags MegaModel winner recounts, “There was a lot of chirpy frenzy around, but as soon as Salman walked in and stood before me for the interview, all of a sudden, the atmosphere changed. Everyone was quiet, as if waiting for him to begin.”

“After the interview, the ambience was again relaxed and industry people continued their other work as if nothing had changed. Salman was still around and being cordial with people. There and then it struck me that it was not fear but immense respect that drove them to silence for the few minutes I conducted the interview.”

 

This realization was overwhelming for Rupali. “This kind of respect comes from his do-gooder image, chilled out nature and of course, the amazing continuing success that Salman commands. Now I understand why Salman did not go about town explaining his stance to the media, or making a show of an apology, when they dragged him in the rape comment controversy. He is so above all such drama.”

Rupali is also thrilled with her interview interactions with Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Shiamak Davar, Gulshan Grover, Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. “Hrithik turned out to be a super emotional guy who cares so much for his family, especially his kids.”

 

“Shaimak  Davar who was also my dance teacher when I was in school, is as suave as ever. Bad Man Gulshan Grover is actually a warm, affectionate and very knowledgeable man. Priyanka Chopra is a perfectionist with her quotes while Mr Bhansali and Ranveer share great camaraderie,” she recalls.

Rupali will soon be making her big screen debut, playing a key role in director Arun Frank’s first feature film ‘Dad… Hold My Hand’.

 

Bigg Boss has been unjust towards Ajaz Khan, feels Arjumman Mughal

Newbie actress Arjumman Mughal who appeared with Ajaz Khan in message-oriented movie Ya Rab last year, feels that Bigg Boss has been unjust and unfair towards Ajaz.

“The way Ajaz was unceremoniously removed from the show, it seemed that the Boss was hell bent on destroying his own prodigy,” she feels. It is no secret that the reality show picked Ajaz from near obscurity, and propelled him to instant national fame as the entertaining ‘Ek Number Manas’ when it introduced the brazen actor in an earlier season.

But after giving him a re-entry along with Rahul Mahajan, Mahek Chahal, Sana Khan and Sambhavna Seth as a Challenger in Bigg Boss Halla Bol this year, the Boss humiliated Ajaz and threw him out of the House.

Ajaz had got into a fight with co-participant Ali Quli Mirza after which Bigg Boss disgraced and removed him from the show. “He could have been given another chance; an opportunity to reconcile or justify his stance,” says Arjumman. “It was disheartening to note the way it all abruptly ended for Ajaz on the show, which he had given so much to in the past,” Arjumman points out.

Just for the record, Bigg Boss is currently headed for a grand finale where a winner will be chosen this week among some of the existing contenders including Gautam Gulati, Karishma Tanna, Pritam Sharma, Sambhavna Seth, Ali Quli Mirza and Dimpy Mahajan.

Rahul Mahajan plans to pep up Gautam Gulati on Bigg Boss

Bigg Boss Season 2 contestant Rahul Mahajan, who re-entered the show as a Challenger as part of Bigg Boss Halla Bol, plans to help Gautam Gulati boost his zest factor on the show.

“Rahul and Gautam have been friends from before, and Rahul plans to help him feel more cheerful,” reveals his publicist Dale Bhagwagar. “Rahul told me, he felt Gautam was a bit low after Diandra left and he wants to pep him up.” With Puneet Issar out of the House this week, Gautam may welcome his old friend Rahul wholeheartedly.

Dale has also given Rahul loads of tips and ideas for Bigg Boss, including some for his equation with Gautam. “Rahul is a man on a mission to amuse, play and entertain. He is straight-forward and does not mince words. That is a quality which will stand him apart,” he points out.

The PR knows. After all, he is considered to be a specialist with many controversial Bigg Boss participants, having handled the media for names such as Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra, Diana Hayden, Shamita Shetty, Vindu Dara Singh, Zulfi Syed, Salil Ankola, Anita Advani, Amar Upadhyay, Ashmit Patel, Season 8’s Aarya Babbar, Sonali Raut and even the re-entry Sambhavna Seth.

Apart from this, he has handled the publicity for BB8’s Upen Patel during the initial years of his career in Bollywood. He is also acquainted with inmates RJ Pritam Singh, and has interacted with Karishma Tanna, Ali Quli Mirza, Sambhavna Seth and Sana Khan before they entered the show.

For now, Rahul Mahajan has jumped the wall of the Bigg Boss House (something he was punished for during his first stint on the show). Only that, last time he had jumped it to escape; this time he has leaped to enter the House. What a way to enter. Lol. We are already amused.

Sonali Raut’s bikini pics with Ranveer Singh, a rage on the net

Sonali Raut seems to be hitting all the right notes with her fans on the world wide web. Even as the diva wows in Bigg Boss, her fans seem to be on a different trip of scanning every bit of her past on the net.

After a topless pic showing her back in a photo shoot with Ranveer Singh caused quite a ruckus and debates on Twitter a fortnight ago, this week, a few of her bikini pics from the same shoot are making the rounds of social media.

“Fans are fans and if they are digging up stuff, it only shows that they are intrigued and interested in Sonali. That’s not a bad thing, neither are bikini pics. They are a gorgeous lot from a shoot she had done for Maxim India magazine,” says Sonali’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar.

Meanwhile, the Bollywood actress has come to be known as the only contestant in Bigg Boss Season 8 who is carrying on completely on her own steam. Neither has she forged a romantic liaison on the show, nor is she part of any camp.

Moreover, the gal has been part of maximum nominations for eviction earlier, and is now ‘permanently nominated’ by Bigg Boss; as part of a punishment for slapping a contestant. But Sonali has survived. As the publicist tweeted, “She is a fighter on cruise mode. She glides, where others flap.”

The Bigg Boss needs to stand firm for respect of women

Sonali Raut SLAPS Ali Quli Mirza on Bigg Boss

“Bigg Boss needs to stick to his stand for womenfolk when he takes one,” feels Bollywood publicist Dale Bhagwagar, who is handling the public relations for Season 8 contestant Sonali Raut and ex-contestant Aarya Babbar.

A few weeks ago, Bigg Boss took away Ali Quli Mirza’s privilege of becoming a Captain of the House again, as a punishment for inappropriately touching Sonali Raut without her consent. But seemingly going back on his stand, he offered Ali an option to have the ban removed, during a task this week.

“The Boss is looked upon as the righteous, mightiest, fairest, wisest, discerning, non-deceiving watcher and protector of the contestants. Will it be alright for him to RETRACT from his stand, especially when he has taken it for the RESPECT of a lady?,” questions Dale.

“Once the Boss banned Ali from becoming a Captain again in this Season, what is the logic and sense of offering him that privilege now?” the PR further asks. “Earlier too, Bigg Boss gave a re-entry to Puneet Issar just a day after being nishkasit (evicted) for being violent towards Aarya,” he points out.

“After the way Ali has behaved with Sonali as well as other contestants later, wont it be disrespectful to them all if the ban is removed?”

It can be noted that apart from disrespecting Sonali, Ali has made fun of Karishma Tanna by keeping on ‘barking’ (imitating an irritating dog) in the presence of none other than megastar Salman Khan.

He has earlier badly yelled at Diandra Soares and also questioned the “auqaat” (status / true colours) of a lady, in his argument with Dimpy Ganguly Mahajan. Apparently, teaching him a fitting lesson for his consistent indecent behaviour, Sonali is shown to have SLAPPED Ali on the reality show today.
