After raiding comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaas Malad residence in Mumbai on Saturday, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) summoned the couple for questioning as the anti-drug agency recovered a small quantity of cannabis during the raid.
According to an NCB official, Bhartis name emerged during the questioning of a drug peddler, who was arrested on Friday night in the suburb. The raid is currently being carried out by the agency at three different places including Andheri, Lokhandwala, and Versova area.
Earlier this month, Bollywood actor-model Arjun Rampal was also questioned by the NCB in relation to a drug case. The 47-year-old actor, whose residence was also raided, said that he is cooperating with the agency.
Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?
The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.
After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”
To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”
On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.
BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.
Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
