    Farhan Akhtar calls out to Education Ministry of West Bengal It is a known fact that Farhan Akhtar played the role of popular athlete Milkha Singh in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. While the film went on to become a milestone in the acting career of Farhan Akhtar, the film has now created a small issue in the textbooks of West Bengal. Farhan Akhtar is known to speak his heart uninhibitedly and he did the same on social media recently. The multi-talented artist decided to point out a major error in the textbooks that was quite misleading for the students in the West Bengal state. The actor-filmmaker decided to bring it forth to the attention of the Education ministry. It seems that the identity of Milkha Singh was misrepresented in the textbooks of West Bengal. Calling out to the education ministry over the mistake, Farhan Akhtar reposted the picture that was shared by someone on Twitter. The said textbook featured the image of Farhan from the film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, instead of the real life athlete himself and the actor decided to point out the error. Farhan Akhtar shared it saying, “To the Minister of School Education, West Bengal. There is a glaring error with the image used in one of the school text books to depict Milkha Singh-ji. Could you please request the publisher to recall and replace this book? Sincerely. @derekobrienmp.” To the Minister of School Education, West Bengal.

    Kangana Ranaut faces allegations from real estate broker over non-payment of brokerage Kangana Ranaut, who is gearing up for her next film Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, is now facing allegations from a real estate broker over non-payment issues. Prakkash G Rohira of Karma Realtors has reportedly filed charges against the actress at Khar Police Station over the pending payment for the brokerage of a bungalow at Pali Hill. Reports have it that Prakkash G Rohira was the real estate broker for the bungalow he had helped Kangana Ranaut purchase in 2017 in the plush Pali Hill locality. The said house is a sprawling 3,075 sq.ft. worth Rs. 20.07 crores and the actress also owns 565 sq.ft of parking space. After the deal, the agent has alleged the actress, her sister Rangoli Chandel and the rest of the staff haven’t completed his payment. He apparently approached the Khar police station in July wherein he filed a confidential complaint. Speaking of the allegations, Kangana Ranaut denied the same in a recent statement. "I paid the agency who did the bungalow deal for me one percent brokerage which adds to 22 lakhs. Their dues have been paid many months ago.The said person is one of the brokers who offered this deal to me. My finance team never dealt with him directly but now he is harassing us for Rs. 22 lakhs more he is claiming 2 percent of the transaction made from my end which was never promised to him before or after the deal so this doesn't make sense and we have made it clear to the cops as well, as we have all the evidence,” said the statement. On the other hand, Rangoli Chandel too has apparently stated in reports that they have already submitted a statement regarding the matter in Khar police station. However, the Khar Police Station authorities in reports have maintained that they haven’t received any statement from the actor’s side. As for Rohira, he continues to maintain his stand on the case. He also claimed that he is aware that they would deny all the allegations and blame the case on him but he eventually concluded by maintaining that the evidences would speak for itself. He also mentioned that he never wanted to take this to the media considering that he is a much smaller person as compared to the actor.

However, now we hear that a script for the same has been locked and Karan has also gone ahead and roped in two members of the cast in the form of Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor coming on board for the film. “Karan Johar always wanted to make Dostana 2, especially after the first film worked so well. Now finally he has a script for the film, which of course will speed up production. As for the cast, Karan has finalized both Sidharth Malhotra and Janhvi Kapoor, and is currently looking out for the third lead role that will again be a male lead,” says a source close to the development. Further talking about the details of Dostana 2, the source continues to add, “Like the first film this one too will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani.

    Sui Dhaaga star Varun Dhawan stitches up a special birthday present for his father David Dhawan Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are all set to teach us the concept of Made In India products in a unique way in their forthcoming YRF venture Sui Dhaaga. Readers may be aware that Varun plays the role of a weaver in the film and we got a glimpse of the same in the recently released trailer. Now, we hear that the Gen Y star has put his ‘Sui Dhaaga’ skills to good use for his filmmaker-father David Dhawan’s 68th birthday. In order to play the character of Mauji in Sui Dhaaga, Varun Dhawan has trained rigorously in the intricate processes of cutting and stitching fabrics for his role. Apparently, the actor wanted to surprise his father with his skills. Which is why, he decided to give his father David Dhawan a very special birthday present. Varun has sewn a shirt for his father’s birthday and has gifted it to him. It is being said that David was thrilled to receive this beautiful gift from his younger son. In fact, Varun Dhawan even chose a colourful, summery fabric on which he decided to put his sewing skills to test. Speaking about the same, the Dhawan boy added, “I am not quite as good as trained tailors, but I have picked up some tailoring while making Sui Dhaaga. My dad thinks I am still a Kaccha Dhaaga (raw and young), but this will prove to him that I am not so raw anymore!” Wasn’t it really sweet of Varun to take out time and effort to make this special shirt for his father and give him a pleasant surprise? But that was not all! To make David’s birthday even more special, Varun and his elder brother Rohit, also gifted their parents a customised staycation at a posh 5 star hotel in Mumbai. The brothers ensured that David had the best time. They also hosted a private dinner for David and Karuna and celebrated with their immediate family. Here's a glimpse of how stitched this shirt for his father.
