From the NCB using social media to track down Siddharth Pithani to Mika Singh slamming KRK, FIRs being filed against nine showbiz stars and more… here are the biggest headlines of the day in our daily segment Bolly Buzz.
It was reported today that the NCB used social media to track down Sushant Singh Rajput’s roommate Siddharth Pithani. Apparently, Sid has been off the radar since August 2020. Although he deleted his old account, Pithani made a comeback to the Gram with a new handle and has since been sharing updates be it about his engagement or even his gym and fitness routines. It was these gym posts that apparently helped the NCB find him and take him into custody.

Another shocking story rocking the headlines was about a model-turned-independent artiste who approached the police alleging sexual harassment and physical assault at the hands of a dozen men from showbiz. After her statement was recorded the matter was forwarded to the concerned authority. Our sources can now confirm that an FIR in connection with the complaint has been registered. Among the accused in the FIR are photographer Colston Julian, Kwan Entertainment co-founder Anirban Blah, actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani, Krishan Kumar of T-Series, and others to read more on this head over to ETimes.
On the filmy front, things seem just as controversial with the return of the Karni Sena. After ‘Padmaavat’, it seems that the fringe group is now after Akshay Kumar to get the title of his film ‘Prithviraj’ changed. This time around, the group asked, “How can the name of the film be kept just Prithviraj?” We hear that the group wants the title of the historical drama to reflect the greatness of the last Hindu emperor Prithviraj Chauhan.
Stirring up some controversy was Mika Singh who has now locked horns with actor-critic Kamaal R Khan, and slammed him for his abusive videos. Speaking exclusively to ETimes, Singh lashes out saying, “With films like ‘Radhe’, people are getting at least something to watch at such times. Every critic has a right to criticise a movie but making personal comments about Disha Patani, Salman Khan, Jackie Shroff is too vulgar”.
Finally adding some sunshine to our day was a viral video of Suhana Khan getting groovy to Justin Bieber’s ‘Peaches’. The clip that turned up on a fan handle sees the starlet and her friend grooving to the tunes of the hit track while giggling and lip-syncing the lyrics of the song.
