Nagpur’s biggest garba – The Raaas – saw a huge young gathering of garba revellers, dancing away to glory on the third night of Navratri celebrations, at The Empress Palace at Wardha Road. Besides youngsters, a lot of family groups were also seen grooving to the beats of famous singers like Priyani Vani, Saagar Kendurkar, Ishan Khan, Jatin Udasi and Farhan Sabri.
The third Navratri night at The Raaas proved to be more enchanting for garba revellers of Nagpur, especially women, as they got to mingle with their favourite TV star Shivangi Joshi (Naira of famous TV serial Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai).
Tonight, garba at Raaas is going to be extra special, as ‘Ye Hai Mohabbatein’ star Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya will be visiting The Raaas to celebrate Navratri with Nagpurians. Divyanka, who’s one of the sought-after actresses in television industry, has been an Indian household name for more than a decade now. When we spoke to a group of five girls playing garba at The Raaas last night, they said in unison, “It was such a great experience to play garba with our favourite star Shivangi, and we all are so excited with the thought of sharing the dance floor with Divyanka tomorrow. We all are such huge fans of her infectious smile! We are really looking forward to see her in person.”
The Raaas will continue to be a starry event, as in coming days, you are going to witness more Bollywood and TV stars like Sohail Khan, Kartik Aaryan (Pyar Ka Punchnama Fame), Varun Sharma (Fukrey Fame), Aayush Sharma (Loveyatri Fame), actor Dilip Joshi (Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashma Fame), etc. enjoying garba at The Raaas. Garba players will also get to groove to the foot-tapping numbers by famous singers like Tulsi Kumar, Rahul Vaidya and Gajendra Verma in coming days.
Conceptualised by Varsha Kukreja and Jeetesh Rakheja, The Raaas is being organised in association with Nagpur’s number one digital news channel ‘Nation Next’ (as the media partner), and the event is being sponsored by certain topmost brands like T Series, Shreeji Tours and Travels, Blive Entertainment, Kukreja Infrastructure, Black Sword Furniture, Madhuban Village, Sandesh Group, Batukbhai Sons Jewellers, Kutz and Ankit Jewellers.

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’
The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Anil Deshmukh granted permission to travel outside Mumbai
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur.
The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency.
“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.
The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
