New Delhi [India], Dec 24 (ANI): Mumbai’s Dindoshi Sessions Court on Monday reserved the order on the anticipatory bail application filed by actor Alok Nath in the Vinta Nanda rape case for December 26.
The actor had filed the bail application in the Mumbai court on 14 December.
On November 21, a rape case was registered against Nath by the Mumbai Police, based on a complaint filed by the writer-producer, who accused him of raping her 19 years ago. The FIR was booked under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Amidst the #MeToo movement, Nanda had narrated her horrifying ordeal in a Facebook post in October. She was the writer and producer of teleserial ‘Tara’ in the 90s, in which Nath played a lead role.
In the wake of these allegations, the 62-year-old ‘Vivah’ actor was recently expelled from the Cine and TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA). (ANI)

New Delhi [India], Dec 24 (ANI): From hard-hitting dialogues to daring stunts, intensity and aggression, the first song of ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ has it all!
Titled as ‘Challa,’ the power-packed song showcases the hardships of soldiers while training for the surgical strike. It shows the eight-day countdown to the strike and how Vicky Kaushal, an army officer, trains to protect his country. The song also features Mohit Raina, Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, and Kirti Kulhari.
High on patriotism, the track witnesses Vicky leading a team of soldiers, preparing them for the surgical strike with the emotion of avenging the killings of their fellow comrades during the Uri attack on September 18, 2016.

Crooned by Romy, Vivek Hariharan, and Shashwat Sachdev, ‘Challa’ will surely pump in energy and awaken the Indian in you. The music of the song is given by Shashwat Sachdev and the uplifting lyrics are penned by Kumaar.
Starring Paresh Rawal as National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, and Yami Gautam as a no-nonsense interrogation officer, the movie showcases the instances of what went down during the Indian army’s surgical strikes in Pakistan following the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri town.
The 2016 surgical strike was initiated on September 29 after four militants attacked the Indian army at Uri on September 18 and killed 19 unarmed soldiers.
The movie, which is being produced by Ronnie Screwvala, also features Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in pivotal roles. It is slated to hit theatres on January 11 next year. (ANI)

Washington D.C. [USA], Dec 24 (ANI): American actor Gabrielle Union opened up about how she bonded with her daughter Kaavia James Union Wade while she was in the surrogate’s womb.
Gabrielle and Dwyane Wade welcomed Kaavia together via surrogacy on November 7, this year. ‘The Bring It On’ star has been very vocal about her struggles with infertility and has been speaking more about it since Kaavia came into the world, reported E! Online.
On Sunday, Union joined Connie Simpson aka Nanny Connie on an Instagram Live and talked about her bond with her little one, the nanny and which celebrities knew about the surrogacy.
Connie Simpson has also helped celebrity couples like Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt.
Union explained that she had a chance meeting with Connie. “What people didn’t know at that moment that I came across Nanny Connie is that we had just implanted our embryo into our surrogate. Nobody knew. We had not told anyone,” she said.
Union also revealed the steps that she and Wade took to bond with the baby while she was still in the surrogate’s womb.
She said she and the ‘Miami Heat’ star along with his three kids that she shares with Siohvaughn Funches, recorded themselves while speaking.
“The surrogate would play it with headphones on her belly so Kaavia could get used to our voices,” she said.
Union also explained that it wasn’t just her family’s voices that she heard. She also heard Astroworld and Beyonce.
“Kaav heard everything from Astroworld to Beyonce to Earth Wind and Fire to The Whispers,” Union said. The little munchkin apparently loves the Hamilton soundtrack, too.
The ‘Being Mary Jane’ star also disclosed that Kaavia was born a few weeks early. “We thought we had at least two more weeks,” she said.
Union also said that American actor Jessica Alba was the one who supported her throughout the surrogacy process. She said that she “confided in her early on.”
On December 10, Union posted an Instagram video about her tiny tot’s “birth journey” and it provided an insight into how Wade and Union met their “miracle baby.”
In the video, the couple gave glimpses into the months leading up to Kaavia’s birth and why they chose the surrogate route.
“Every family is unique. How each family is created and comes together is special. Kaavia James Union Wade’s journey into our arms was long and at times brutal. There were heartbreaks that nearly broke us and streams of tears that turned into raging rivers. And then came Kaavia James,” she captioned the video. (ANI)

Ashutosh Rana, Madhur Bhandarkar react on Naseeruddin Shah's remark

 Madhur Bhandarka,r  Ashutosh Rana

New Delhi [India], Dec 24 (ANI): “Everyone has a right to share their thoughts,” said filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar while reacting to Naseeruddin Shah’s recent comments on Bulandshahr violence incident.
Bhandarkar stated that since India is a democratic country, one can express his opinions. However, according to him, there is no intolerance in the country.
“Everyone has the right to speak. We live in a democratic country. I don’t think there is any fear. Everyone is equal in India and this is his point of view. This is the special thing about our country that everyone can express their opinions. I don’t think there is any problem or intolerance,” the 50-year-old said.
Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Ashutosh Rana took sides with Shah and urged that one must ponder over the statement rather than merely reacting on it.
“Everyone should have a right to share their thoughts with their friends or other people without any fear. We should be wary of reacting, acting or doing a trial on any such comment. If any of our brother or friend is saying something, we should not only listen to them but must also ponder over it,” Rana said while interacting with media.
“Independence stands for simplicity and gentleness and that is what our culture is,” the actor added.
Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has been facing flak for his recent comment over the Bulandshahr violence incident in which two people including a police official were killed over rumour of cow slaughter.
“At many places, the death of a cow is being given more importance than the killing of a policeman. I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if a mob surrounds them and asks, ‘Are you a Hindu or a Muslim?’ they will have no answer. It worries me that I don’t see the situation improving anytime soon,” Shah had said in a video which surfaced on the social media earlier this week. (ANI)
