Amitabh Bachchan is the most liked actor among Mumbaikars
Residents of Mumbai seemed to indicate that while they liked Bollywood stars with “patriotic” credentials, they were also put off by an excessive display of “nationalism”.
This was revealed during a survey conducted by CVoter, on behalf of IANS, in the last week of April to mark Maharashtra Day which falls on May 1.
The respondents were divided into two categories: those born in Maharashtra and those born outside the state.
Among the many questions related to political, social and oral issues, residents were asked the following question: Which Bollywood star (male or female) do you like and admire the most? Amitabh Bachchan was the number one choice with more than 25 per cent of the respondents opting for him while Akshay Kumar came a close second with a little more than 24 per cent of Mumbaikars choosing him. There was hardly any difference in the responses of local Marathis and non-Marathis.
Aamir Khan came a distant third with about 9 per cent of the vote. The other two Khans, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan were nowhere in the picture with both getting 8 per cent and 5 per cent of the votes, respectively. It seems the patriotic image projected by Amitabh and Akshay persuaded residents of Mumbai to like and admire them.
Salman Khan HUGS Vicky Kaushal at IIFA 2023 day after snub, latter says ‘There is no point…’
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan grabbed eyeballs and invited criticism after his guards were recently seen pushing actor Vicky Kaushal aside while he was speaking at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards 2023. Netizens even claimed that the star ignored Vicky and walked away and labelled him as “rude and arrogant”.
Within no time, the video of Vicky being shoved aside by Salman’s guards went viral on the internet, and fans of the former rallied by his side.
However, Salman made sure to put the controversy to rest after he was seen hugging Vicky only a day after allegedly snubbing him.
Salman Khan hugs Vicky Kaushal
As the IIFA Awards 2023 kickstarted in Abu Dhabi, celebs made sure to put their best feet forward as they arrived for the Day 1 of the gala event.
They also tried to interact with the media for a bit, and while Vicky was doing the same, he was spotted by none other than Salman.
In another video which has gone viral, Salman can be seen himself approaching Vicky while he was busy speaking to the media, and greeted him cordially. Not just that, but he even hugged Vicky and exchanged pleasantries before proceeding for the event.
Vicky Kaushal reacts to video of him being pushed away
While interacting with the media, Vicky was obviously questioned about the video of him being pushed aside by Salman’s guards which was pasted all over the internet.
However, the ‘Uri’ actor seemed to be unbothered by it and instead said that the entire incident was just blown out of proportion.
“A lot of times it happens that things are just blown out of proportion and a lot gets written about it. There is unnecessary chatter about many things. Things are not actually as they seem sometimes in the video. There is no point talking about that,” Vicky told.
Vicky-Abhishek turn hosts for IIFA 2023
Meanwhile, the IIFA Awards 2023 will be hosted by none other than Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan.
Salman, who has been a regular at the gala event, made sure to accommodate it in his busy schedule this year as well. In the past, he had been seen hosting the event numerous times, but this time, he decided to hand it over to Vicky and Abhishek.
Among the other celebs who attended IIFA 2023 were Rajkummar Rao, Rakul Preet Singh, Varun Dhawan, Nora Fatehi, Badshah, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Sunny Singh, Radhika Madan, Urvashi Rautela, and others.

For the wedding day, Ashish, 60, was seen dressed up as a groom in a Mundu from Kerala. His bride, Rupali looked refreshing in a white and golden Mekhela Chador from Assam, as a tribute to her roots. She finished off her look with some golden jewellery inspired by South Indian temple art, as per her makeup artist. Seemingly, their wedding was attended by close family members and friends only in Kolkata.

One of her Instagram stories read, “The right one will not make you question what you mean to them. They will not do what they know hurts you. Remember that.” She shared another Instagram story that read, “May the overthinking, and the doubt exit your mind right now. May the clarity replace confusion. May peace and calmness fill your life. You’ve been strong long enough, it’s time to start receiving your blessings. You deserve it.”
A few hours before sharing the Instagram stories, Rajoshi had shared a selfie with the caption, “Do not get Puzzled in the puzzle called life.”
