Kamya Punjabi on Rhea Chakraborty’s chat with Sushant Singh Rajput: ‘What’s she trying to prove? Siblings fight’



Television actor Kamya Punjabi has shared her take on the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Kamya believes his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty was using his credit cards.

On Saturday, Rhea had shared her WhatsApp chats with Sushant, showing how he thought his sister Priyanka was manipulative. Reacting to it, Kamya said sibling fights are a common affair. “What is she trying to prove with this? Bhai behen meh jhagde hote rehte hai koi badi baat nahi hai (Siblings fight, it’s not a big deal)… n most imp he was staying with you n not his sister.. all the credit cards were used by you, not his sister !!! #chorkidaadhimehtinka #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput #rheakireality,” she wrote.


In his chat with Rhea, Sushant had written that he is worried about his sister, and said: ‘pure evil’. He said that she is manipulating ‘Sid bhai (his roommate Siddharth Pithani)’. He wrote, (“To Priyanka”), “You do this, after the shameful act, making this a coverup to distract attention playing the victim card to the most non negotiable act of molestation under the influence of alcohol…” Sushant’s lawyer had recently told Pinkvilla that Rhea had accused Priyanka of having molested her, which drew a wedge between the siblings. “He realised his mistake that in a short span of few days Rhea had played a mind game to separate two siblings who were inseparable and happened to be each other’s strongest emotional support,” the lawyer had added.

This is not the first time Kamya has spoken about Rhea. On Saturday, she also took a dig at her for releasing a picture of Sushant’s sipper, which Rhea said was his only property that she had. “Jiska sipper tha usse hi sambhal kar rakh leti (You should have cared for the one this sipper belonged to)….!!!! #SSRMurderCase #JusticeForSushant #Warriors4SSR,” Kamya had written.

Sushant’s father had registered an FIR against Rhea in Patna last month under charges of abetment to suicide. The case has now been transferred to the CBI. In her plea filed in Supreme Court, asking the FIR be transferred to Mumbai, Rhea has alleged that Sushant’s father has used his “influence” in roping her in the FIR.

Happy birthday Mahesh Babu: Six best performances to celebrate the star on his big day



Actor Mahesh Babu may have had an easy entry into the industry but he’s come a long way to enjoy the kind of stardom he does today. With his share of hits and misses, Mahesh has consistently tried to strike a balance between commercial cinema and experimental roles. On the occasion of his 44th birthday (August 9), we take a look at six best performances of his career.


In what can be best described as Mahesh Babu’s first attempt at doing something out of his comfort zone, Gunasekar’s Okkadu saw Mahesh play a Kabbadi player, who risks his life to save a girl from being forcefully married to a local rowdy. The film stripped Mahesh of his star image and made him play a very raw character full of life. The film, which won Mahesh Babu a Filmfare award for Best Actor, was later remade in Tamil, Kannada, Bengali and Hindi.



In this Trivikram directorial, Mahesh played a hitman and the role gave his career a much-needed reinvention at that point in time. He played a character that rarely speaks but portrayed expressive body language and mannerisms. The film was much ahead of its time, especially in its Hollywood-style making and unlike the regular, star-driven commercial pot-boilers, Athadu works because it doesn’t glorify its hero and it is amazing Mahesh didn’t have a problem with it. Another highlight of the film was the dialogues and thanks to Trivikram, some of the lines are remembered even today.



Puri Jagannadh’s Pokiri, a follow-up to Athadu, is considered one of the biggest grossers of Telugu filmdom even today. In a role in stark contrast to what he played in Athadu, Mahesh played a reckless rowdy-cum-uncover cop to the tee, showcasing his range as an actor by impressing audiences and critics alike. Ask any non Mahesh Babu fan and Pokiri will definitely feature in their list of his best performances. Just like Trivikram, who reinvented Mahesh’s image with Athadu, Puri did something similar with Pokiri, and the result was highly satisfying. Even look-wise, Pokiri saw Mahesh sport long hair which was extremely well received by his fans.



In his second collaboration with Puri Jagannadh, Mahesh played a character who aspires to be the next big don. Set in Mumbai, and stitched from the same cloth used to make RGV’s films, there was something special yet odd about Businessman that made it work. In yet another career-defining role, Mahesh displayed flamboyance and made the role of Surya bhai special. Even though the film earned mixed response from critics, it didn’t miss to hit the bull’s eye at the box-office.

In a truly bold attempt, Mahesh teamed up with Sukumar for this psychological thriller. Mahesh shed weight and sported six-pack abs for his role as a rockstar suffering from schizophrenia. While the film may not have worked at the box-office, it surely made audiences take notice of the creativity in its story and the versatility Mahesh can bring to his roles. It’s a shame the film, despite being good, failed to connect with everybody. Despite its box-office results, most Mahesh Babu’s fans will continue to celebrate this film because it was truly experimental.

Considered one of the biggest blockbusters of his career this far, Koratala Siva’s Srimanthudu made Mahesh truly the man of the masses. The story about a millionaire vowing to change the fate of a small village connected across audiences and struck gold at the ticket window. In another sensible role, Mahesh proved why an actor needs a very competent director to succeed and there can’t be a better example than this film. Srimanthudu came after the debacle of Aagadu, and it gave Mahesh the much needed boost in his career.

Paras Chhabra and Mahira Sharma bring back their sweet ‘knok jhok’ relationship from Bigg Boss 13 with Ring



Music videos during the lockdown seem to have become quite the thing. And surprisingly, a lot of Bigg Boss 13 contestants have been working on music videos right now. What is even more interesting is how some of the pairs are making the most of their equations, and Paras Chhabra and Mahira Sharma are one of them as well. 

Paras and Mahira, lovingly called PaHira by their fans, are back with yet another music video, titled Ring. Sung by Raman Goyal, the screen-presence of these two is what is sure to keep you hooked while the song might feel a lot like a repeat, for more reasons than one. None the less, it is a peppy number and much like what we see on screen, the lyrics depict this couple’s relationship.

While they have their fights, it is the little things that have our attention and finally, at the end of it all, we understand the significance of the title, Ring. Things fall into place perfectly at the end, and oh, did we mention the costumes? Mahira seems to look as stunning as ever while Paras is giving out major cool dude vibes with this one! 

As things all fall into place in the end, it all comes to a circle and also leaves the viewers smiling. A small glitch is the lip-singing, that doesn’t seem to be as apt, not even for the singer. None the less, we can only imaging how the dubbing and other processes could have been a task given the current scenario, and for that, their efforts are commendable.

Check out the music video right here:
