Bigg Boss 11: Has Arshi Khan been eliminated?

This is quite surprising. Till yesterday, a lot of fans wanted Akash Dadlani or Puneesh Sharma to get eliminated from Bigg Boss 11, but according to media reports,  it’s Arshi Khan, who has been shown the exit door.

However there is a twist. No, she has not been sent to the secret room. Instead, according to a report on BollywoodLife, she got a special power wherein she was asked to save two contestants from the next nominations.

As of now, we don’t know who got saved by Arshi, but with just two weeks to go for the finale of Bigg Boss 11, it was definitely something very important.

This time there were no nominations as the housemates decided to go against the rules of the show and started discussing the nominations before the process could take place. They were using code words for contestants while planning whom to nominate, which was definitely quite stupid of them. So it was, Bigg Boss sassed them first and nominated all of them directly, except Hina Khan, who was not involved in these discussions.

So Priyank Sharma, Vikas Gupta, Shilpa Shinde, Arshi Khan, Puneesh Sharma, Luv Tyagi and Akash Dadlani were nominated.

Arshi Khan has 4 pending court warrants against her: Gehana Vasisth

Arshi Khan’s nemesis Gehana Vasisth today claimed that Bigg Boss 11 contestant Arshi Khan has 4 pending arrest warrants issued against her by various courts in India.

Besides the arrest warrant issued by a Jalandar court where the police were ordered to enter the Bigg Boss house and take Arshi Khan into custody, there are 3 more pending arrest warrants against Arshi Khan, Gehana said. One is in Bengalaru, one in Delhi and one more in Panipat, she explained.

Meanwhile, after Sunny Leone’s event was stonewalled by the Bengaluru authorities, it’s now the turn of south actress Gehana Vasisth who was scheduled to perform at a mega event in Madhya Pradesh, reports

Gehana Vasisth who is also scheduled to make a WC entry in the Bigg Boss 11 house according to media reports was not available for comment.

Gehana Vasisth’s manager Suresh Shetty told media persons in Mumbai that the organisers of the MP event were asked to submit the bio data and photographs of the performers. “When they saw that Gehana Vasisth was crowned “Ms Bikini Asia” in the past and noticed her raunchy bikini and other bold images online, they immediately denied permission. India Scribes Tv quoted Suresh Shetty as saying that Gehana has been rehearsing for the last few days and has already spent a huge amount on her costumes and other paraphernalia for the event.The event organizers who claim to have spent almost 12 lakh on the event publicity till date, have decided to approach the High Court in this matter, India Scribes Tv reported.The MP authorities have not given any specific reason why Gehana Vaisisth’s show was denied permission, but it seems that the Governments of UP and MP have decided not to permit any big New Year celebrations, citing law and order issues.

Government officials of the two BJP-ruled states said that there could be major law and order issues in the two states as right-wing groups are against celebration of Christmas and New Year in a big way.Meanwhile, the event management company that planned a New Year’s Eve program featuring actress Sunny Leone in Bengaluru – which was denied permission by the police amid ‘law and order concerns’ – has filed a writ petition in the Karnataka High Court, asking that the program should be given approvals as they have planned the event for nearly two months now, reports News 18.

Mita Vashisht to play the lead; Diandra Soares to make her Bollywood debut in Lights Camera Murder 

TellyChakkar was the first to report about Dunno Y fame Yuvraaj Parashar and Kapil Sharma’s upcoming project together. The movie titled Lights Camera Murder was in its pre-production and casting stage when we broke the news.

The latest TellyChakkar has learned is the final casting of the Hindi film. Veteran and versatile actress Mita Vashisht has been finalised to play the female lead in the murder mystery. The theatre artist was last seen on silver screen in 2014 in Rahasya.

After a hiatus of around 3-4 years, the lady will soon be back on 70mm and this time as the protagonist. Mita will be playing Yuvraaj’s sister in the narrative. For the uninitiated Yuvraaj who is producing the film is also going to be a part of the flick along with the film’s director Kapil Sharma.  Mita will be seen romancing Kapil in the motion picture.

While Mita is playing the female lead there are other beautiful actresses who also are part of the project. Supermodel and Bigg Boss 8 fame Diandra Soares will be making her Bollywood debut through this movie. In the past Diandra did make an appearance in the film Fashion (2008), however, that was mere a few seconds appearance.

Apart from Mita, Diandra, Kapil and Yuvraaj the film cast includes few other names as well. Film actress Vedita Pratap Singh is also going to be part of the project. Renowned actor Liliput who has been part of the industry for a long time is also going to be a part of the film.

When contacted an elated Mita said, “I can’t discuss much about the film. It’s a thriller film and that’s all I can say.” Diandra on the other hand chose not to comment at all.

The shooting for the venture is already on floors.


Hichki director Siddharth P Malhotra reacts to plagiarism allegations, says met the writer just once

Hichki, which marks the comeback of actress Rani Mukherji on the silver screen, has embroiled into a big time controversy already!

A few days ago, an author, Nishant Kaushik, had accused Hichki director Siddharth P Malhotra of stealing ideas from his script and not giving him the due credit. The author of My Father Is A Hero has gone on a Twitter rant against the treatment meted out to him. Soon, he got support from Twitter users, including critics and writer Khalid Mohammed, who tweeted, ‘Welcome to the ways of Bollywood, friend!

Now Malhotra has reacted to the whole controversy, where he claims that he had bagged the official rights of the novel Front of the Class on which Hichki is based and he has never met the writer before. He admits that several writers had worked on the script, and Nishant was one of them. But he didn’t like the pitch Kaushik wrote for him and told his decision to the team that hired the author, Exceed Entertainment.

This is his official statement – “I had acquired the rights to make Front of the Class as a Hindi motion picture in 2013. Nishant Kaushik’s claims are baseless. He was contacted through Exceed Entertainment and I haven’t even met him once. We were looking for writers who could come up with a take on the Front of the Class. We had approached several writers including Nishant. He was given a brief for the film and the story and slant he came up with, was not what we were looking for. So, we did not proceed with him and Exceed was informed about my decision immediately. This was 2015. Several prominent writers like Amole Gupte, Abbas Tyrewala have worked on the story of Hichki and we have obtained NOC’s from them and I thank each one of them for being the creative contributors of Hichki. We have credited all the writers who have worked in our film. So, it is ridiculous that we will not give credit to anyone in particular who has worked hard and contributed for Hichki.

Well there is no denying that Hichki is inspired by Front Of The Class. However this was not apparent after the trailer of the film released. Another very interesting thing to note here is the notes Kaushik had shared is a male protagonist, like the novel, whil eHichki has a female lead, Rani. Kaushik’s emails have been directly written to Siddharth and not through any agency.


Arshi Khan to donate her entire Bigg Boss 11 earnings to Charity for Education of Street Kids

Arshi Khan’s manager and publicist Flynn Remedios today confirmed that Arshi Khan will donate her entire earnings from Bigg Boss 11 to Charity for the education of Street Kids.
Elaborating further Remedios said that for the last 3 years Arshi Khan has always spent her birthday with street kids and has been involved in Charity initiatives for their education and income oriented vocational training.
A two-year old video published in 2015 of Arshi Khan distributing food packets and sweets to kids can be found here.
This is something that is very close to Arshi Khan’s heart and I can assure and guarantee you that this is not just an empty promise or stunt. It’s part of her values and she has been wanting to do something big for street kids for a long time.
She will also launch a support group for providing vocational training to street kids to enable them to get jobs and make a decent, dignified living, Remedios said in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Arshi Khan asked flatmate Mahima Singh Puri to hide condoms when her father came to visit her

Bigg Boss 11 contestant Arshi Khan had recently spoken about how her father caught her in possession of something at her house in Mumbai that left him very angry. Although Arshi did not reveal what her father had found, it appears that she may have been referring to packet of condoms.

Bhojpuri actress Mahima Singh Puri, who claims to have been Arshi’s roommate in Mumbai, has confirmed the story now.

Mahima not only confirmed the incident but also said Arshi had put the blame on her after her father found the condoms inside her wardrobe.

Arshi was earlier seen on unaired footage on Voot telling Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma that her father had once paid a surprise visit to her house in Mumbai. He found a packet of something inside her wardrobe, following which she was questioned by her angry parents.

Arshi had added that she somehow managed to escape the embarrassment by telling her father that the “thing” belonged to her friend.

Now Mahima has told International Business Times, India that the “thing” was a packet of condoms, and the friend that Arshi had referred to was none other than her.

Mahima said Arshi made her say that the packet belonged to her so she could escape the wrath of her parents.

“I had to take the entire blame. Arshi Khan made me apologize to her father. I was not engaged but Arshi made me tell her father that I was and that the condoms actually were for my use with my boyfriend. As my boyfriend lives with his family, he gave the packet to me for safe keeping. This is what I was made to say by Arshi,” Mahima told IBTimes India.

She added that Arshi’s parents had found condom packets in her wardrobe not once but thrice. Once her father was so miffed with her that he did not speak to Arshi for two months, Mahima said.

Mahima had earlier said she was Arshi’s roommate in Mumbai for some time, and hence she knows many of the Bigg Boss 11 contestants secrets.
