Numerous events occurred this day that made headlines in Bollywood. From Pooja Bhatt hitting back at Rangoli Chandel, Abhishek Varman’s Kalank releasing to mixed reviews, Sandhya opening up about sexual harassment, to Amitabh Bachchan’s blog turning 11 years old, different things took place on this day. Therefore, we have compiled most of them to refresh your memory. Have a look at the previous happenings.
After Rangoli Chandel slammed Alia Bhatt and Soni Razdan for their British nationality, Pooja Bhatt came to her sister’s rescue. She defended Alia Bhatt following the criticism and took a dig on Kangana Ranaut. Besides her, Bhatt’s co-star Randeep Hooda also extended his support via a cryptic message. However, their fans completely understood the same; hence, leading to a war between Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt’s fans.
There will always be haters. And the more you grow the more they hate; the more they hate the more you grow.— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) April 16, 2019
And then the hyenas come out to offer solace disguised in the garb of co-stars & supposed friends. What drives them I wonder? Inherent self-loathing or guilt at their own compulsive capacity to indulge in loose talk? Either way,forgive them Lord for they know not what they say.— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) April 17, 2019
Dearest @aliaa08 I’m so glad you are not letting the opinions of very occasional actors and chronic victims affect you and your work .. kudos to you for your continued efforts to outdo yourself 🤗— Randeep Hooda (@RandeepHooda) April 16, 2019
