Salman Khan supports Ranbir Kapoor in his bad time

It is known to all that Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have enmity with each other and it is because of the actress Katrina Kaif. Katrina Kaif who is the ex-girlfriend of Salman Khan is currently having an affair with Ranbir Kapoor. The two are said to get married soon.
Both Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have made media headlines many times because of their conflict. Despite of this, both the actors have maintained a professional relationship with each other. They are not seen together in a party, but when it comes to bad situation they speak up about each other.
Ranbir Kapoor is going through a very bad time. He has been criticized for his bad performance in Bombay Velvet and giving three back to back flop movies. In his bad time, Salman Khan has come forward to support him.
During an interview, Salman Khan said that failure is part of profession and that is never final. He also said that how a lean phase can affect an actor’s career. Salman has also experienced that phase of his life.

We hope that Salman’s kind and motivational words will inspire Ranbir Kapoor. 

Will Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan reunite in YRF Films?

Rumours are doing the rounds that Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are going to share the screen space together in the upcoming venture of Yash Raj Films. Sources suggest that Aditya Chopra has successfully bagged the two actors and has decided to direct them himself.
According to a source related to the industry, Ranveer Singh was first considered for the film. However, Aditya Chopra has decided to sign Salman instead of Ranveer thinking about how the Shah Rukh-Salman combo will work at the box-office. It is heard that Shah Rukh has already agreed to act in this film. If the rumour is believed to be true, the film, which is said to be a romantic thriller, will go on floors by the end of 2016.
Both the actors have huge fan base. Their films are also doing well at the box-office. There is no doubt that their reunion will help the film to earn huge amount of money. They were last seen together in Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam (2002). So fans will be happy if the rumour comes true.

However, neither the actors nor the spokesperson for Yash Raj Films said anything about the buzz. So, fans will have to wait for the official announcements about the forthcoming film to know who are working on it.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan earns Rs. 200 crore in eight days

Salman Khan-starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan is breaking records one after another. If the movie’s success continues this way then very soon it will break all the existing records of B-town. This movie has entered into the 200-crore club by the end of the eighth day.
Salman Khan has been praised for his performance in this film. His acting skill has won millions of hearts. Many people expected that Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be like other films of Salman. However, the heart touching story has proved them false. It is not a power packed flick with action sequences and heavy dialogues delivered from the mouth of actors. 

Bajrangi Bhaijaan was released on July 17 on the occasion of Eid. Since its release it is earning money from both home and abroad. It has already earned good review from critics and fans. Now, the movie is heading towards the 300-crore club. Hope it will reach the new target in the second weekend. 

Quinton de Kock fines 50% for shoulder barging Tamim Iqbal

Bangladeshi opener Tamim Iqbal has once again become the victim of shoulder barging incident. This incident took place on the second day of the ongoing Chittagong Test. When Tamim was returning to the dressing room after facing the last ball of the 30th over bowled by Simon Harmer, South African wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock walked in front of the stumps and got involved in a conversation which saw some shoulder-barging before being intervened by South Africa’s captain Hashim Amla.
However, Quinton de Kock was found guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct’s Article 2.2.7 which relates to “inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player, player support personnel, umpire, match referee or any other Person (including a spectator) in the course of play during an International Match”. He was fined 75 percent of his match fee after pleading guilty. According to ICC statement, the charges were laid by match referee Chris Broad. In the statement, he said,
“Quinton de Kock walked in front of the stumps to confront Tamim Iqbal. In doing so de Kock deliberately brushed Tamim Iqbal's shoulder and rib area.”
Tamim Iqbal scored 57 runs in the first innings which helped the host nation to put a 78-run lead against the opposite team.

Rilee Rossouw was the first South African batsman to be fined 50 percent of his match fee for also shoulder barging Tamim during the three-match ODI series which Bangladesh won 2-1.

Pilgrims loses lives in a stampede in India

A total of 27 pilgrims lost their lives in a stampede during a religious festival that took place on the banks of a river in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. According to Indian news channel NDTV, 25 of the deceased were women. The stampede lasted nearly 20 minutes.
This sad incident took place at 08:00 (02:30 GMT) in the Rajahmundry district while pilgrims were trying to rush towards the Godavari river. At least 29 people were injured. Among them, only two people were severely injured, according to a spokesman for Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.
It is expected that almost 24 million people will take part in the 12-day Maha Pushkaralu festival, which takes place once every 144 years. Pilgrims believe that if they take bath in the river then they will get rid of sins.

We feel deeply sad for those departed souls. May their souls rest in peace.
