After making some controversial and sexist statements on Koffee with Karan, Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul faced a lot of public flak, that also resulted in them being suspended from the cricket team for a brief period of time. The suspension was later lifted owing to a pending inquiry by the Ombudsman appointed by the Supreme Court. Hardik had earlier apologized for his misogynistic comments on Twitter, but, of course, it fell on deaf ears.

Anyway, now the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took a serious step by slapping both the cricketers with a fine of Rs. 20 lakh each. The two players have been strictly instructed by the BCCI Ombudsman D K Jain to pay Rs. 1 lakh to each of the 10 families of the jawans who lost their lives serving the country. Apart from this, D K Jain has also ordered the cricketers to deposit Rs. 10 lakh each in the fund created by the Cricket Association for the blind. All payments are to be made within four weeks from the date of the order, i.e. April 19, 2019.

Post the incident, KWK host Karan Johar did appear on multiple platforms, saying that two have already paid their price and that he somehow feels responsible for the controversy. But, clearly, that wasn’t priced enough and this new step by the BCCI would hopefully set an example for one and all. Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more such updates.

Raghava Lawrence made this announcement on Twitter yesterday (May 18), leaving everyone shocked! In fact, this sudden shock move comes after the first look poster of Laxmmi Bomb was released without his knowledge. He says he was not even satisfied with the poster when it was launched! He also came to know about the release from a third person, which hurt him even more. Raghava also adds that there are other reasons that has forced him to take this decision! He values his self respect more than money and fame. In fact, the director also reveals that while he has not signed any agreement and can leave with his script, he won’t! He respects Akshay Kumar a lot and hence, he will present them the script and let them hire another director for the movie.

Cannes 2019 fever is on! And while we all are busy spotting our favourite celebs killing it on the red carpet, a very rationalist comment was made on Hina Khan’s appearance by a leading magazine’s editor. The editor posted a picture of the actress and said, “Cannes has suddenly become Chandivali studios kya?” This sure did not affect much as she immediately came up with a savage reply where she said, “I was persistent, I’m constant and I will be efficient again and again. Don’t know where I belong, don’t know if I have to, as the Place doesn’t define me! Because as always I will work my a** off and I will make my own PLACE. My promise, a proud outsider from my Chandivali studios.” But her friends from the industry decided not to end it at just that. Celebs like Farah Khan, Salman Khan, Arjun Bijlani, Nia Sharma came out in her support.

Where Salman Khan said, “I don’t know if the Editor wanted to say that #Cannes has become Chandivali or Chandivali has gone to #Cannes2019.” Farah Khan also appreciated the bold move that Hina took and praised her stand. Check out the tweets right here:

After the brouhaha, the editor finally took to social media and apologised, informing that his comment was drastically misconstrued. Hina accepted the apology and moved on to slay the Cannes world.

While this matter came to an end here, it raised many questions about Television star’s credibility. Hina Khan’s debut film Lines premiered at the Cannes Festival 2019 and if that is not a reason to celebrate then what is? Well, at least we are glad that the issue was resolved gracefully. Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more such updates from the world of Bollywood.

Ness Wadia, an Indian business tycoon and Preity Zinta’s ex-boyfriend, was caught with drugs in Japan in March this year. The heir to the Wadia Group had taken a trip to Japan and visited the Niseko resort for a skiing holiday. While returning back, he was reportedly arrested at the New Chitose Airport in the northern Japanese island, Hokkaido. A Financial Times story reveals to us that a customs official had found 25 grams of cannabis resin in Ness Wadia’s pockets. With strict Narcotic Laws in the country, the Sapporo District Court handed him a two-year prison sentence. However, it has been suspended for five years!

For those of you who don’t know, Ness Wadia was reportedly detained for a couple of days post his arrest. Only on March 20, the initial charges were pressed against him. He spent an undisclosed period in detention before a court hearing took place recently. According to the Financial Times report, Ness admitted to carrying drugs for his personal use in the court. After pleading guilty and co-operating well, he was given a two year sentence, but it was suspended for five years. Since then, the business tycoon has returned to India.
