Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra landed in troubled waters after he was arrested in connection to producing pornographic content. Kundra has been named as the key conspirator by the police in the case and has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.

He is being bashed by the general public for ruining lives and producing such content. Now, Gehana Vasisth who has been talking about the case ever since he has been arrested has spoken in favour of Raj Kundra. Gehana is out on bail on the same case. She has revealed Kundra was planning to launch an app and had cast his sister-in-law Shamita Shetty for a film.
She told Navbharat Times in an interview, "Just a few days before his arrest, I went to his office. There, I got to know that he is planning to launch an app called Bollyfame. He was planning to do chat shows, reality shows, music videos and feature films for the app. There was no plan of involving 'bold scenes' in these films."

She further added, “We also discussed the scripts. Then we thought about casting Shamita Shetty for one script, Sai Tamhankar and two other artists for another. I was supposed to direct these films and was thinking about it just a few days before his arrest.”

We wonder how would Shamita Shetty react to all these claims.
About Shilpa Shetty’s involvement in the case, police said they haven’t been able to find any link-ups that shows her involvement in it. "We have not been able to any find any active role (of Shilpa Shetty) yet. We are investigating. We will appeal to the victims to come forward and contact the Crime Branch Mumbai and we’ll take appropriate action," joint commissioner of police (Crime), Milind Bharambe said as per Hindustan Times.

As modern-day Indian cricket fans become more and more familiar with the concept of social media and expressing themselves online, having an opinion (mostly critical) on anything and everything is quickly becoming a norm.
So when one of the best players of the Men in Blue, Ravindra Jadeja shared a tweet owning up to his Rajput identity, it was time for him to be put under the scanner and get called out for doing so in front of millions of his fans and followers and that’s exactly what happened on the micro-blogging site on Thursday.
#RAJPUTBOY FOREVER. Jai hind🇮🇳 — Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) July 22, 2021
“#RAJPUTBOY FOREVER. Jai hind,” Jadeja wrote from his official Twitter handle as his critics flocked together to condemn him for being proud of his identity.

None of them you had any control over. https://t.co/yRp1EpxoNK — 7 cow (@FeastBit) July 22, 2021Thankfully, not everyone holds such extreme and negative views towards what the Indian all-rounder had to say and many in fact came to his rescue and supported him for taking pride in who he is.
He is a Proud Rajput for sure.
In an interview a journalist asked a question to MS Dhoni Which part of India do your ancestors hail from? The popular belief is that you are a Jat.
He replied, My parents are from Uttaranchal. I AM A RAJPUT, there are lots of them in Uttaranchal. pic.twitter.com/ie673y5M7J — illy Mehra (@youthiyapaa) July 23, 2021Its Called ReaL Rajputana Atittude..
Proud Of You Brother ️ — *𝗗𝐢𝐯𝐲𝐚𝐁𝐚 𝐉𝐚𝐃𝐞𝐉𝐚* (@Raajputani) July 22, 2021Rajputs are the people who have guarded this nation for 100s of years and they have literally bled for the sake of the nation.
That's their honour. That's their pride.
The least we can do is, we can respect that sentiment of every proud Rajput.
— Kaustuv Dwivedi 🇮🇳 (@dwivedikaustuv) July 22, 2021 A lot of things that Jadeja does on the field has to do with him paying tribute towards his community, especially the iconic sword-swinging with the bat after hitting a half-century or a ton.
In 2020, Jadeja’s Indian Premier League franchise, Chennai Super Kings had also arranged for a peculiar ‘Rajput Award’ for the cricketer, as a ‘thank you’ for everything that he’d done for the team over the years.
Thank you to the @chennaiipl team for bestowing me with this award. Playing for this amazing franchise is an honor and an opportunity I cherish. Looking forward to the season. pic.twitter.com/qE5T36eE48 — Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) September 17, 2020
“Thank you to the @chennaiipl team for bestowing me with this award. Playing for this amazing franchise is an honor and an opportunity I cherish. Looking forward to the season,” he wrote while accepting the award. As expected, the fans were divided in two sections back then as well. Suresh Raina’s ‘Brahmin’ Incident “I think, I am also a Brahmin. I have been playing in Chennai since 2004. I love the culture here. I love my comrades. I have played with Anirudh Srikkanth. Subramaniam Badrinath and L Balaji are also there. I like the culture of Chennai. I am lucky to be a part of CSK,” Raina had spoken about his identity while being on-air during the opening match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL).
As soon as these words came out of Raina’s mouth, the kind of online backlash he began to face was enormous with people labeling him a discriminator and being asked to feel ashamed of himself.
@ImRaina you should be ashamed yourself.
It seems that you have never experienced real Chennai culture though you have been playing many years for Chennai team. https://t.co/ZICLRr0ZLh — Suresh (@suresh010690) July 19, 2021Be ashamed to what you say for..... pic.twitter.com/P1FcTSk0XT — Bruh (@Bruh68792988) July 20, 2021So watched the video, I once liked Raina very much and now im sad how ignorant or he has been hiding all these days.

Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra got into major trouble after his name popped in the case linked to pornographic content. He has been making the headlines since he was arrested for making porn movies.
He has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292, and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of IPC besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.

He has been denying all the allegations leveled against him. According to the new updates as per ANI, Raj bribed officials of the Mumbai Police with Rs 25 lakh to evade arrest.
"ACB Maharashtra has confirmed that they received four emails from Arvind Shrivastava alias Yash Thakur in this regard, but his allegations of seeking a bribe from him and allegations against Raj Kundra bribing to evade arrest were quite vague in nature. The mails were forwarded to the Mumbai Police for further action on April 30, 2021," an ACB official was quoted as saying by ANI.
Raj Kundra’s lawyer Abad Ponda went on to claim that the content might be vulgar in nature but can not be considered porn. He said, “The IT Act sections can't be read with IPC sections, but here the police have done this. Section 67A of the IT Act talks about sexually explicit acts. Only the actual... intercourse can be considered porn. Rest all is just vulgar content.”

He further added, “Police is following what web series are doing these days - vulgar content. But that's not really classified as porn. Nothing in this remand shows that two people actually indulged in act of intercourse. If it's not actual intercourse, it's not classified as porn.”
He also questioned the arrest of Raj Kundra and said, “Police custody should be an exception and not a norm. Arrest should be made only when the investigation cannot move further without the arrest. In this case, the accused was made to join the investigation once he was arrested. The arrest wasn't made as per law.”

It has been a little over two and a half months since two-time Indian Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar was accused of murdering a fellow wrestler Sagar Rana by beating him to a pulp with a stick and asking one of his goons to record the whole act on video.
Since then, Kumar has run away, deceived and escaped the Delhi Police, and was ultimately caught, smack in the middle of a highway. After being arrested, Kumar’s case has been making constant rounds of the judicial court and his custody is being played hot potato with, between the judicial system and the law enforcers.

Finally, it was decided that Kumar will be transferred to Tihar Jail, one of the biggest prisons in the world where the most dangerous, and evidently the most important criminals are kept and if you are really lucky (or have achieved celebrity status), you will get to make unnecessary demands as a prisoner and your wishes will come true.
Kumar has all of the above and so when the wrestler made a request to have a television set up for him to watch the 2020 edition of the Olympics in Tokyo, the men at Tihar said “Sure! Why not?”
Delhi's Tihar Jail will arrange a TV in common area of the ward where wrestler Sushil Kumar, accused in murder case of wrestler Sagar Rana, is lodged. He will be allowed to watch TV with other inmates: Tihar Jail official

He will be allowed to watch TV with other inmates: Tihar Jail official Earlier this month, Sushil had requested for TV” ANI reported on Twitter on Thursday.

"The one who murdered my son does not deserve to be called a mentor. All the medals won by Sushil Kumar should be taken from him. We believe that police will investigate properly but Sushil will try to influence it by using his political links," Rana's mother argued, according to India Today.
"We are hoping for justice. Where did he go when he was absconding, who gave him shelter, and most importantly the gangsters with whom he is connected to. He should be hanged so that people learn a lesson and think before killing his own pupil," said Rana’s father. View the full article
Long before cinema became experimental and various genres erupted, the scope of movie making in the 90s was restricted to makers directing movies which catered to a particular family crowd mostly. Even though today we have an insane variety on OTT, there are some cult movies which defined the way we perceived Bollywood while growing up. Here are 7 movies which are basically an emotion for us: 1. Hum Saath Saath HainEven today, if this movie is played on TV, chances are you will stop and watch it, with every scene rolling in your mind. For anyone who grew up in a big joint family, this movie signified the love, the fun and the memories attached to playing around with so many cousins, attending so many weddings and having many uncles and aunts who never left a chance to pamper us.
2. Andaz Apna ApnaComedy in the 90’s had a benchmark of this movie, which was simple and humorous. One can watch this repeatedly and yet never get bored.
3. RangeelaThis was a movie which was ahead of its times. A beautiful Urmila who changed how fashion was perceived for the modern Indian girl and the hook step to the title track was something we all tried to learn.
4. Dil Toh Pagal HaiBefore KKHH explained to us that ‘pyar dosti hai’, this movie had already established that love can exist in many forms and friendship is one pure version of it. Also, how can you forget the iconic dance duet between Karisma and Madhuri which lit the screens on fire.
5. Jo Jeeta Wohi SikandarA super sexy Pooja Bedi straight out of Marilyn Monroe dreams, a clichéd character of Aamir Khan representing how class difference influences a student’s personality and oh, Pehla Nasha, the song which continues to jog our memories when we think of a song about our first junior school crush.
6. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge“Jaa Simran Ja, jee le apni zindagi”, DDLJ gave us hope that true love will happen when we grow up. It lit up dreams of European vacations, eating ice cream in the snow, catching a train by holding a good looking stranger’s hand, and that mandoline will play every time we fall in love.
7. BorderYou were probably only 6 or 7 years old when this movie ended up lighting a fire of patriotism in you and you caught yourself dreaming of joining the Army. This movie and its soundtrack continues to give us goosebumps.
On Wednesday, the world finally witnessed the very first match of much-anticipated cricket tournament The Hundred with some of the biggest names of women’s international cricket joining forces and battling each other for the Manchester Originals and the Oval Invincibles.
One such performance came off the bat of Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who made her tournament debut as a member of the Originals and lit up The Oval with a barrage of boundaries in her short yet impactful innings.
View this post on Instagram
Coming to bat at two-down, Kaur collated a powerful 29 runs off just 16 deliveries while adding to her team’s cause towards picking the first win of the tournament, period. During her time at the crease, the 32-year-old went on to smash six fours. Yes, 24 out of her 29 runs came from the ball racing across the ropes.
By the time Tash Farrant tricked the Indian batter into giving up an easy catch, she had done enough damage as the Originals reached the 108-run mark in just 84 deliveries.
Fans, cricketers and other critics of the game saw Kaur’s performance from all corners of the world and were left thoroughly impressed and entertained. However, one of these famous big names belonged to England’s Sam Billings, who went on to pay a special compliment to her:
Harmanpreet Kaur is a gun! — Sam Billings (@sambillings) July 21, 2021
“Harmanpreet Kaur is a gun!” he wrote talking about the aggression with which she rose to the occasion and played the knock. Unfortunately, not all of the Indian captain’s fans were able to comprehend Billings’ intentions behind the tweet and thought that the Englishman was “trying on her”.
As a result, many jumped on his Twitter feed:

For her exceptional performance, the South African cricketer was honoured with the ‘Player of the Match’ award.
Harmanpreet Kaur will next be seen in action on July 25 when the Manchester Originals take on the Birmingham Pheonix at the Old Trafford. View the full article
It has been a couple of days since pacer Deepak Chahar reached out to his inner batsman and led the Indian cricket team to an incredible victory against the hosting Sri Lankan squad in the second of three ODI matches.
At one point the Men in Blue were struggling significantly as the scoreboard read 116/5 with the loss of Hardik Pandya’s wicket for a duck and the hopes of winning the series with one game extra seemed bleak.
View this post on Instagram
Nonetheless, the duo of Chahar and vice-captain Bhuneshwar Kumar stitched a remarkable 84-run innings in 15 overs to steal what seemed to be a practically impossible victory and gave a huge boost to the Indian locker room ahead of the third and final ODI of the series.
On the contrary, it led to a complete draining of faith and belief that the Sri Lankan roster had in itself. They were completely frustrated and imploding on live television with every boundary Chahar and Kumar hit.
Here are three ways in which Deepak Chahar created major conflict within the Sri Lankan team: Mickey Arthur - Burning From WithinMickey Arthur is most entertaining head coach in international cricket. One camera is always dedicated to him.#INDvSL pic.twitter.com/IINE4MxHFd — I'm in hate with you (@Forshitssake25) July 20, 2021
Sri Lankan head coach Mickey Arthur was all smiles as the Indian top-order was dismissed for cheap and names like Pandya and Ishan Kishan fell sooner than expected. However, when Chahar started to swing for the ropes, even the commentators couldn’t help but notice the frowns returning to his forehead. By the time the match was over, Arthur could be seen walking around the dressing room, cursing and red as a tomato. To watch his team lose a game they’d already won was the final nudge he needed to go over the top. War Of Words
It didn’t take long before Arthur vented his frustration on the Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka and that too in the middle of the field in the focus of cameras with a live broadcast feed to our television channels. While the captain (who also felt the burden of losing such a match) tried his best to calm the situation down, the coach didn’t want to hear any of it. In Came The VeteransThat conversation between Coach and captain should not have happened on the field but in the dressing room — Russel Arnold (@RusselArnold69) July 20, 2021
Former Sri Lankan player and legend Russel Arnold openly expressed their dissent towards Arthur’s theatrics and called him out ahead of the third and final match. “That conversation between Coach and captain should not have happened on the field but in the dressing room.” Russell Arnold tweeted.
“I have told before, Sri Lanka don’t know the winning ways. They have forgotten how to win for the last so many years. It’s tough for them. I told before the lunch, if Sri Lanka takes three wickets in the first 10-15 overs India is going to struggle and actually India struggled. Big effort from Chahar and Bhuvneshwar their and they made them win,” Muttiah Muralitharan added. View the full article
