Fraudulent diamond merchant Nirav Modi has been finally traced to London. The alleged scamster, who has several Bollywood connections, has been on the run ever since he was accused of siphoning off Rs 11,000 crore. He was missing since a year now. However, UK-based media house, The Telegraph has caught hold of him in London. But that’s not it! They have also exposed how he is running a diamond business in the UK. Shocking, isn’t it? He is also reportedly staying in a Rs 75 crore house in the England capital. And while The Telegraph managed to track him and question him, he kept mum.

Yes, a reporter from the UK newspaper questioned him about several things. From asking him about his new business to him applying for political asylum and many more, the questions were all asked on camera. However, Nirav Modi has stayed mum on the whole matter. In fact, he had one reply to everything, “No Comment.” He looked unfazed by the questions and continued to walk on the road. He took a cab and left for his house, which is located in  London’s West End. According to the newspaper’s report, he stays in a three-bedroom flat, which occupies half of a floor at the Centre Point tower block.

Indian authorities have issued an Interpol red notice for Modi’s arrest, but he was missing till now. The government has sprung into action and started extradition procedures. But Modi has also applied for political asylum. After he siphoned of Rs 11,000 crores from Punjab National Bank through fraudulent transactions, we wonder what will happen next. In fact, Nirav Modi has started a new diamond business too, according to the Telegraph. He has an office in Soho. The business is connected to his apartment in Centre Point, but he isn’t listed as a board of director at the company!

Nirav Modi was reportedly close to Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Sidharth Malhotra, Lisa Haydon and several other Bollywood stars. In fact, Priyanka, Sidharth and Lisa had shot for commercials with his company, Nirav Modi Jewels. Anushka Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor and many Hollywood stars were also his clients.

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.
