Kangana overlooks KJo link as she praises patriotic ‘Shershaah’

Mumbai– Actress Kangana Ranaut has heaped praises on the film ‘Shershaah’ which has been produced by Karan Johar, with whom she has been in a feud for a very long time.

Kangana took to her Instagram story on Thursday, where she posted a picture of Param Vir Chakra awardee Captain Vikram Batra, who attained martyrdom in the 1999 Kargil War.

She wrote: “National hero Vikram Batra was a Himachali boy from Palampur, very popular and loved soldier. When the tragedy happened, news spread like wildfire in Himachal, it slid through our hearts. As a kid, I remember being tormented for days.”

Kangana then shared a picture of actor Sidharth Malhotra, who plays Captain Vikram Batra in ‘Shershaah’, which is co-produced by Karan’s Dharma Productions.

She wrote: “Sharing a picture of Sidharth Malhotra from the film. What a glorious tribute @sidmalhotra. Congratulations to entire team. It was a big responsibility and you all excelled #shershaah.”

The actress, who is often surrounded by controversies, hit the headlines in 2017 when she called filmmaker Karan Johar “intolerant” towards outsiders and a “flagbearer of nepotism” who only backed industry kids, on his popular chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’.

Nusrat Jahan gives birth to baby boy

Kolkata– Popular Bengali actress and Trinamool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan has given birth to a baby boy.

According to a medical bulletin issued by the private hospital in south Kolkata where Jahan is admitted, both the child and the mother are doing well.

Jahan, who was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday night, gave birth to the child via C-Section surgery at around 12.45 p.m. on Thursday.

Nusrat’s rumoured boyfriend, actor Yash Dasgupta, said that both of them are well.

“For those who have been enquiring about Nusrat’s health, the mother and child are healthy and doing well,” he said.

In an Instagram post shared on Thursday morning, the actress had shared a photograph of herself with the caption: “Faith Over Fear #positivity #morningvibes.”

Though Nusrat did not officially confirm her pregnancy or talked about it on social media, she had shared pictures with her baby bump in June and even photos of a pregnancy-themed cake, sent to her by her friends.

Earlier this year, the actress had courted controversy after she claimed that her marriage in Turkey with businessman Nikhil Jain in 2019 was not valid under Indian laws. Nikhil, on his part, had claimed that Nusrat had avoided his requests to register the marriage.

In a detailed statement, the Trinamool MP from Basirhat had said, “Being on foreign land, as per Turkish marriage regulation, the ceremony is invalid. Moreover, since it was an interfaith marriage, it requires validation under the Special Marriage Act in India, which did not happen. As per the court of law, it is not a marriage, but a relationship or a live-in relationship. Thus, the question of divorce does not arise.”
