Entertainment News of August 3: RRR’s last schedule begins in Ukraine, Mandira Bedi tweets ‘Time to take life on’

Ranjit M Tewari directorial Bellbottom stars Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta, and Huma Qureshi. The film will hit screens on August 19.

Even as businessman Raj Kundra fails to get any relief in the adult films case, his wife and actor Shilpa Shetty on Monday finally issued a statement about the impact of the arrest on her personal life and public reputation.

Shilpa took to social media to post a two-page statement, wherein she requested people to respect her privacy, especially as a mother to two kids. Shilpa said that it was unfair that she and her family had been subjected to media trials even as the case is sub judice.

““MY STAND… I HAVE NOT COMMENTED YET and will continue to refrain from doing so in this case as it is subjudice, so please stop attributing false quotes on my behalf.I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I’ve never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family’s and ‘my right’ to privacy in these times,” read an excerpt from the actor’s long post.

Shilpa Shetty’s statement came days after she approached the Bombay High Court seeking to restrain various media organisations from publishing any ‘incorrect, false, malicious and defamatory’ content against her. On Saturday, hearing her plea, the Mumbai HC refused to restrain the media, commenting that it will “have a chilling effect on the freedom of press”. The court added, “Reportage of something based on what police have said is not defamatory.”

Today is also a special day for Akshay Kumar’s fans as the trailer of his upcoming film Bellbottom is set to release later in the day. Bellbottom will be the first big-ticket Bollywood film to release in theatres since the second wave of coronavirus forced cinema halls to shut down. The movie, also featuring Huma Qureshi, Vaani Kapoor and Lara Dutta, will arrive in theatres on August 19.
