Bolly Buzz: Payal Ghosh accuses Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct; NCB to summon Bollywood stars – Times of India ►
Tremors were felt all over B-town as actress Payal Ghosh accused director Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment. The starlet went on record to claim that the director “forced himself” on her and “tried to sexually assault” her; allegations that Kashyap deemed as “baseless”. While Ghosh found support in actress Kangana Ranaut, Kashyap had many B-town actors, fellow directors, crew members and even his ex-wives Aarti Bajaj and Kalki Koechlin, stepping up speak in his defence. Payal decided to take the legal route and registered a complaint against Kashyap at a police station.
As far as B-town’s brush with the law goes, the latest buzz is that the Narcotics Control Bureau, investigating the Sushant Singh Rajput case, will send summons to Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor. While Sara has been in the news for her rumoured connection with the actor, Shraddha has found herself in the middle of the investigation after it was alleged that she joined the actor for a ‘Chhichhore’ success bash at his Lonavala farmhouse, where drugs were reportedly used.
John Abraham is swooping in to save the day with his next film ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’. The actor dropped an intriguing new poster of the film that saw him put his abs on full display as he bled in colours of saffron, white and green. The star also announced Eid 2021 as the film’s release date.
At a time when actors are racing against the clock to complete their shoots, Akshay Kumar found himself breaking some rules as he decided to ditch his 8-hour shift to work double-shifts for ‘Bell Bottom’. We got buzz from Scotland that Akshay recommended two simultaneous units shooting to ensure that the film’s shoot goes on at a brisk pace in a bid to save the producers a hefty cheque. Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone was seen leisurely spending her last few hours of free time before she could commence shooting for Shakun Batra’s next with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday. The three stars are currently in Goa where they will begin shooting their first film together.
Back in B-town, Kareena Kapoor Khan began her Monday on a high by ringing in her fabulous 40th birthday with her family by her side. Bebo got the celebrations started with a mid-night bash and later shared photos from her intimate celebration for all to see. Adding some more sparkle to her day were fellow B-town stars like Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Kapoor, Sonam and Rhea Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and many others who sent over some of the best birthday greetings.
