It’s a bright, festive day in tinsel town, but everyone seems to be keeping the party a private affair. From stars sharing glimpses of their low-key but classy Holi parties to Ajay Devgn getting tangled in vicious rumours, Fatima Sana Shaikh becoming the latest B-town star to test covid-positive, here are the biggest headlines of the day.
So what if there are no extravagant Holi parties this year, Bollywood is keeping up the festive spirit with either low-key parties or simply sharing throwback memories from Holi celebrations gone by. From Priyanka getting the Jonas family to join in the festivities to Kareena sharing glimpses of Taimur and Inaaya’s Holi pool party, Kangana Ranaut joining in the celebrations with her ‘Tejas’ team to Ananya Panday taking a trip down memory lane with Suhana and Shanaya, everyone including Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Karan Johar, Tiger Shroff among others, have been doing their bit to spread good cheer and advise people to stay home and stay safe this festive season.
One star not revelling in the festivities is actress Fatima Sana Shaikh. The beauty announced on social media that she has tested positive for the virus. “I have tested positive for COVID-19 and currently following all the precautions and protocols and have been home quarantining myself,” she said in a post and extended her gratitude towards all those wishing her a speedy recovery.
Rhea Chakraborty had everyone sitting up and taking note of her social media post that was all about love. “#LOVEISPOWER ‘Love is a fabric which never fades, no matter how often it is washed in the water of adversity and grief’- Rober Fulghum (sic),” Rhea captioned the picture that saw her with ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ producer Nidhi Parmar Hiranandani.
Some more pics winning hearts on the web were gorgeous clicks of Dia Mirza living it up in the Maldives with husband Vaibhav Rekhi and step-daughter Samaira. Dia shared a series of happy memories from the popular beach destination and captioned it saying, “We made some really special memories in Maldives.” Another star-couple making memories together was Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora. This time around the two turned photographers for each other and proudly shared the photos for all to see.
Far away from B-town, a video of a brawl outside Delhi’s mall went viral and it was being alleged that Ajay Devgn was a part of it. However, these reports seemed to be far from the truth. “Post the promotion of ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ in January 2020, actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn has not visited Delhi. So reports of a brawl involving the superstar outside a Delhi pub are absolutely baseless and untrue,” said Devgn’s reps in a statement. It was further revealed that Ajay has been busy with his multiple projects and has not even visited the capital.
