Actress Neha Dhupia, who is expecting her first child with actor-husband Angad Bedi, showed off her baby bump while walking for designer Payal Singhal at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2018 here.

She walked the ramp with her husband Angad for Singhal’s show titled “The Showstopping Bride”.

Neha said that it is a “memorable” moment for her.

“It’s been amazing to be on the ramp looking and feeling like this… A lot of people take a break and won’t come to work, but that’s not true,” Neha told IANS.

“I believe in ‘work thy saviour’. I have been a workaholic… Coming here and being with the one you love the most and wearing the designer you love excessively… has been great,” added the actress, who was seen in an embellished lehenga and choli.

Talking about Angad’s reaction to her pregnancy, Neha said: “His reaction was really amazing. He is going to make a rock solid father as he is a rock solid husband… I can’t wait to see him change diapers.”

Angad, who looked dapper in an embellished sherwani, was happy to walk with Neha on the ramp.

The son of ex Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi said that he ran behind Neha for 15 years and this is the first time he was “actually walking with her”.

Singhal’s show was held in association with the Lakmé Salon. The line was inspired by folk art tapestry.

Published

Tandav-5

The Allahabad High Court has refused to grant anticipatory bail to Aparna Purohit, the head of India Originals at Amazon Sellers Service Pvt Ltd, which is showing ‘Tandav’ web series online.

A single-judge bench of Justice Siddharth passed this order on Thursday while hearing an anticipatory bail application.

The anticipatory bail application had been filed by Aparna Purohit in the case under Sections- 153(A)(1)(b), 295-A, 505(1)(b) 505(2) IPC, Section 66 and 67 of the Information Technology Act and Section 3(1)(r) of SC/ST Act.

The allegation in the FIR lodged against the applicant and six other co-accused persons is that a web series is being shown on Amazon Prime Video, which is an online movie OTT platform, has objectionable content.

The web series is being shown through Amazon Prime Video through Head of India Originals, as paid movie.

The movie has been directed by co-accused, Ali Abbas Zafar.

The content of this movie is affecting the image of the Uttar Pradesh police adversely. In a Dial 100 police vehicle, two actors are shown travelling with open doors in a police uniform, consuming liquor and hurling abuses.

It is also seen that Hindu gods and goddesses have been depicted in a bad light with the intention of inciting communal sentiments.

The post of Prime Minister has been depicted in a manner which will adversely affect the democratic system of the country. Caste and community related utterances have been made deliberately so that it may affect the public peace.

Similarly, utterances have been made against the state police, public administration and the constitutional posts so that the element of hate is developed between the communities and there are scenes which show disrespect for the scheduled castes.

All this has been deliberately done to make the web series controversial and gain publicity for the purpose of commercial gain.

The FIR has been lodged against the producer/director and actors/actresses of the movie series.

Aparna Purohit’s counsel submitted that the web series in dispute is a work of fiction and all the places, events, characters and incidents are imagination of the author.

A disclaimer is included in the movie in this regard. The cast and crew of the web series Tandav has already issued an unconditional apology and have removed the offensive scenes.

The applicant along with other co-accused persons filed a petition under Article 32 of the Constitution of India before the apex court praying for quashing of number of FIRs and complaint cases lodged against the applicant and other co-accused persons on January 27, 2021.

Notices have been issued to the opposite parties, leaving it open for the accused persons to approach the High Court of the state for grant of bail/anticipatory bail. Hence, the applicant sought bail from Allahabad high court.

The state government, meanwhile, vehemently opposed the application. He has submitted that total 10 FIRs and 4 criminal complaints have been filed relating to the disputed web series in the country.
