    Salman Khan injured; returns home

    Salman Khan came in for trouble recently during the shooting of the film Bharat. We are not talking about the political controversy that ensued over the use of the Pakistan flag during the shoot of the film in Ludhiana, but also of a physical injury caused to the actor. Well, Salman did not death-defying stunts, but the actor was normally working out in the gymnasium at the shoot when he hurt himself pretty badly. “It is not a very serious injury, but he needs a lot of rest and that was one reason why Salman came back to Mumbai to also get checked up to assuage himself and people around him that nothing was too serious.  Salman was in a lot of pain and could not complete the shooting schedule

    Will the US punish Mohammed bin Salman?

Where does the finding leave Saudi US relations? Where does it leave the fate of Mohamed bin Salman? Presenter: Sami Zeidan Guests Glenn Carle,

    Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi welcomed a baby girl, their first child, on Sunday morning. Neha and Angad surprised everyone with their hush-hush wedding ceremony at a New Delhi Gurudwara in May this year.

Being brutally honest on Neha's talk show No Filter Neha recently, Angad Bedi revealed on how he actually revealed the story of Neha’s pregnancy to her parents:
