Tehseen Poonawalla, Congress supporter, is annoyed by Leona’s selfishness.

Not unexpectedly, BJP’s IT cell head Amit Malviya compares Leona’s ‘Pakistan zindabad’ with Shaheen Bagh protests.

Actor Richa Chadha is really embarrassed — to find out why.

Onto Pathan’s ugly remarks. After a storm broke about his ears, he issued a statement to explain away his statement.

 

The Shaheen Bagh protesters, meanwhile, are impressed by his acting skills — are they sure he’s acting, though?

 

Congress leaders Jaiveer Shergill and Gaurav Gogoi see a strong resemblance between Union Minister Giriraj Singh and Pathan. Singh had stated that all Muslims ought to have gone to Pakistan, at a rally in Bihar.

 

After two Dalit men were brutalised and tortured, author Yashica Dutt has a question.

 

Ah, here’s some good news, for a change, let’s celebrate with actor Shilpa Shetty.
