Actress PRIYANKA CHOPRA has been roped into director-writer Shonali Bose's next titled The Sky Is Pink and has already started prepping for it. She  shared a photograph of  its draft: “And it begins... Prep. Hindi movie.” The story reportedly revolves around Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13.  

If biopics are made on sports and its stars then a sports culture will develop in India. Through such biopics, you get to know that it is a different world.

Actor KAVI KUMAR AZAD, who played Dr Hathi in the daily soap Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, passed away at the age of 46 on Monday after a cardiac arrest. “He was brought dead by his brother and a few more people to our hospital at 12.10 pm. Going by his history, he had respiratory problems,” said Ravi Hirwani, Centre head, Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road.

The show’s creator Asit Kumarr Modi cancelled the shooting of the show for Monday after the news of the actor's demise. “We as a team are yet to discuss about the upcoming episodes and his replacement. We weren't expecting this. He was an amazing actor and a very positive person. He truly loved the show,” Modi said.

Robin Wright says that the cast was surprised and saddened about the sexual misconduct allegations against former House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey.

She said she really “didn't know the man” and they only knew each other between “action and cut.” She says they would giggle between scenes and he was always professional.

Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp in October accused Spacey of sexual misconduct when he was 14 and Spacey was 26. Spacey tweeted his “sincerest apology” for what he labelled drunken behaviour.

Spacey was fired from the Netflix series after several employees accused him of inappropriate behavior. More than 15 men have accused him of misconduct.
