Uttarakhand doc on ‘KBC 13’ hotseat gives father-in-law the credit

Amitabh-Bachchan

Neha Bathla became the second contestant to occupy the hotseat on the show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’ hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Dr Neha is a veterinarian from Uttarakhand’s Champawat district and has also worked as a nodal officer during the Covid pandemic. She managed to answer 12 questions and won Rs 12.5 lakh.

When asked how she feels about it, Dr Neha responded that it is not just money but she is here to fulfil the dream of her father-in-law Pradeep Kumar Joshi. She said: “I came to ‘KBC 13’ because of my father-in-law, as he is the one who motivated me to be in the show as he is a big fan of Amitabh Bachchan. Moreover, as I am interested in reading and keeping myself updated on every latest event, he asked me to participate in it.”

Dr Neha was desperate to make it to the hotseat by winning the Triple Test. And adding to it she was also overwhelmed by the respect she got from Amitabh Bachchan.

“I was so nervous before, especially facing a superstar like him was just beyond my imagination. But Amitabh ji is such a kind person and without showing any tantrums he said, ‘I respect your profession’, and I think this was the biggest thing for me.”

Despite getting stuck at the 13th question, she seemed quite satisfied and said: “I am happy that I came here and in this way I showed my respect and regards for my father-in-law.”

She wishes to utilise the money in helping underprivileged kids by offering them education.

Debutante Sharvari: ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ is my big-screen debut, have given it my all

Debutante Sharvari will be seen as the new ‘Babli’ in the comedy ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’. She says it is her big screen debut and has given it her all.

Sharvari said, “I was honoured that YRF could see me as the new Babli in the film. ‘Babli’ is an iconic character in the history of Indian cinema, thanks to Rani ma’am’s incredible work in the first film. I’m a big fan of her and hope that I have done justice to the role.”

The new actress is being presented in an uber-glam avatar in the film in which she has been paired opposite Siddhant Chaturvedi who plays the new ‘Bunty’.

Sharvari will imbibe all the characteristic traits of Babli — highly intelligent, sassy, always up for a great challenge, and most importantly a supremely talented con-woman. The new Babli is tech-savvy, she is a product of the digital boom and thus, supremely skilled and equipped to pull off intricate cons.

“Since my character is based in today’s times, I have tried to play it in my own way and I only hope that Rani ma’am and the audiences will love my effort. This is my big-screen debut and I have given it my all. I can’t wait to see all the responses that my performance will evoke. I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” she added.

‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ is an out-and-out family entertainer that is set to release on November 19. The film has been directed by Varun V. Sharma.

Kristen Stewart ‘tried to get taller’ to play Princess Diana

Actress Kristen Stewart, who stars as the late royal in the new film ‘Spencer’, said that she wanted to alter her height to match Diana’s physical stature.

Kristen told The Sunday Times newspaper: “I tried to get taller. I’m 5ft 5in. She had such beautiful stature. I thought, ‘I wish I could grow my femur! But I’m playing Diana, I’m not her…”

The movie is set at Sandringham over a weekend at Christmas 1991 and follows Diana’s decision to end her marriage to Prince Charles and Kristen was determined to find the “inner fire” of the princess, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The ‘Twilight’ star said: “She’s at her lowest point, but there’s still this inner fire. Just don’t let it go out.”

She also reflected on the way film roles have changed for women as they can be “curious, honest and messy” on screen.

Stewart said: “We’re just allowed to exist now in a way that feels curious, honest and messy.

“Films have been made for a long time by men and you can tell. We are getting to a place, though, where we can destigmatise things that should not be taboo. We’ve been conditioned our entire lives to go, ‘We’re OK! We don’t feel anything! I don’t have cramps right now!’

“If men had periods they’d have two weeks off a month. But, anyway, it’s an exciting time to make films, as women can externalise feelings that have been suppressed forever.”

‘Spencer’ has raised concerns that it could upset Diana’s sons Prince William and Prince Harry but the actress believes that things have changed as the pair have been allowed to make their own “choices and mistakes”.

The actress said: “They have been saddled with the burden of our curiosities for their entire lives and that is the job. (Diana’s) legacy is clearly in her boys.

“They have obviously made different choices, but they’ve been allowed to make choices, and mistakes. Whereas, before, choices and mistakes were not to be made. Ever. That is a shift. Whether people admire their choices or not, they are making them.”

Samantha-Ruth-Prabhu

 South India’s most happening actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who recently filed defamation cases against a couple of YouTube channels and an individual for streaming malignant content about her, has apparently received a legal blow.

Samantha had filed legal cases, which come under Kukatpally court in Hyderabad. After listening to her side of the case, the court apparently ordered that the actress could simply seek an apology from her opponents, rather than filing defamation cases.

“The actress can seek a word of apology from the content owners of the concerned YouTube channels, individuals and media outlets, rather than filing defamation cases on them,” the court suggested, as per reports.

The court went on to school the actress and apparently indicated that celebrities share personal details on public domain and then file defamation suits.

“In court, everyone is equal before the law. There is no sense of some being high and others being low. We will hear Samantha’s case as per the procedure,” the court concluded.

Samantha’s announcement about her divorce from Naga Chaitanya had invited unwanted comments and speculation about their relationship, and some channels went forward and linked her up with random colleagues.
