Throwback When Bollywood stars alienated Vivek Oberoi over his ugly spat with

first_imgPictured: Vivek Oberoi on Yaaron Ki Baarat; Salman Khan on Bigg Boss 10.Varinder ChawlaThe infamous brawl between Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi will always remain one of the ugliest spats in the Bollywood industry. In 2003, Vivek had called a press conference and had claimed that Salman had telephoned him in the mid-night 41 times accusing him of having physical relationships with his ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai, Diya Mirza, Rani Mukherjee and Somy Ali. Vivek had even said that an inebriated Salman had threatened to kill him.Interestingly, no one from the Bollywood industry came out in support of Vivek’s outburst in the media. Instead, they all spoke against Vivek for speaking about the incident in the media rather than sorting out their differences personally.”In the film industry, there is a code of honour whereby all problems are sorted out internally,” Abhishek Bachchan had spoken in support of Salman against his ugly spat with Vivek Oberoi.Kareena Kapoor, who had worked with Salman in a film and was good friends with him, too had expressed her dismay over the entire controversy and said that “if Vivek had a problem with Salman, why could he not solve it instead of going to the press?”Salman’s good friend Suniel Shetty had also said that Vivek calling a press conference to talk about Salman behaving badly with him was in a very bad taste.”I don’t know what’s happening with Vivek and how he looks at life. Being an actor and a coartiste, he should not have taken the matter to the press. If he felt Salman had behaved badly, he [Oberoi] should have confronted him [Khan] physically instead of talking about it on television. I thought it was in very bad taste. Everyone believes Vivek has done it for publicity,” Shetty had said back then.He had further added, “I know Salman,” continues Shetty, “He is a fantastic human being. He [Khan] says he made a call or two. But he says he wasn’t abusive. I get irked with some seniors, for example, when they come late on the sets. But I still hero worship them. Where is the question of Salman getting insecure about his career? Filmmakers keep going back to Salman.”Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had described Salman Khan as the best human being and said that Vivek had committed the biggest blunder ever by any actor in Mumbai. He had further said that he was scared of Vivek after his outburst and would never be able to work with him in the future. “Vivek must learn discretion from stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgan,” he added.Taking a dig at Vivek, Bhansali had said, “I may shout at him on the sets and he may call a press conference against me. All the heroines should touch his feet for protecting their dignity. If Vivek’s dog has dysentery tomorrow, we should be prepared to hear Vivek talk about it on camera for three hours.” Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Vivek OberoiPost his infamous brawl with Salman, Vivek’s acting career had started losing the limelight. In 2017, Vivek had opened up about his downfall in Bollywood and said that even after delivering a hit, no movie offers would come to him.”When my personal life got messed up, I couldn’t keep my eye on the ball. Even if I gave a hit, work wouldn’t follow. Shootout at Lokhandwala became a huge hit, but I sat at home for a year after that,” he revealed, suggesting that no one was approaching Vivek for roles as Salman had instructed all not to.However, after splitting up with Aishwarya in 2005, Vivek had apologised to Salman during a public performance in 2007, but it failed to amuse Salman.Well, as they say, you must never mess up things with Salman.last_img read more

Death toll tops 100 in fight for key Yemen port medics

first_imgAFP File PhotoThe battle for a major rebel-controlled port in Yemen has left more than 100 soldiers and insurgents dead in less than a week, medics and military sources said Saturday.Yemeni forces are fighting to close in on the Red Sea port of Hodeida, the main conduit for humanitarian supplies into a country where 22 million people are in dire need of food aid.Medics in the southern Aden governorate, where the Yemeni government is based, said they had received the bodies of 52 people, including 20 soldiers, between Friday and Saturday, bringing the toll to at least 110 killed in clashes since Wednesday.The remainder appeared to be rebels, the medics said.Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source in the pro-government military coalition said on Saturday the Huthi rebels had ambushed a military convoy in the coastal district of al-Durayhmi in Hodeida governorate.Loyalist fighters, backed by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, last week announced they had launched an operation to enter Hodeida city and seize the rebel-held port.Hodeida lies 230 kilometres from the capital Sanaa, which the Iran-backed Huthis seized in 2014, prompting a Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen the following year.The campaign, which continues to this day, aims to restore power to the internationally recognised government of exiled president Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi.The Saudi-led coalition accuses the rebels of using Hodeida as a launchpad for attacks on shipping in the Red Sea and for smuggling in rockets.The insurgents have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against neighbouring Saudi Arabia.Nearly 10,000 people have been killed since the coalition launched its military campaign in Yemen in March 2015.More than 2,200 others have died from cholera and millions are on the verge of famine in what the United Nations says is the world’s gravest humanitarian crisis.The UN warned last week that any operation aimed at seizing Hodeida would disrupt the entry of aid shipments to Yemen, 70 per cent of which flow through the rebel-held port.last_img read more

Nine Republicans Vie To Succeed Retiring Congressman Ted Poe

Ted Poe, R-Texas, in his office on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., September 14, 2016.The race to fill retiring Congressman Ted Poe’s seat has begun. Nine candidates are jockeying for the Republican nomination in Texas’ Second Congressional District. That increases the chances the primary contest will go to a runoff.The leading contenders include first-term State Representative Kevin Roberts, prolific GOP fundraiser Kathaleen Wall, and healthcare executive David Balat.“Primary races that are this crowded, a lot of times it’s going to come down to candidate fundamentals,” says Republican political consultant Joe Brettell. “Do you know your district? Are you raising money? Are you making the phone calls? Can you run an effective campaign that brings your people out to vote?”Congressional District 2’s boundaries stretch from West University to Memorial Park, then snake north and east to Spring and Humble. It’s been a safe Republican seat for years. But University of Saint Thomas political scientist Jon Taylor says that may not hold much longer. “Somebody wins in 2018, 2020 let’s say they can win reelection, and then we go into 2021 and the Legislature’s going to meet again, and this district may very well be radically revised due to redistricting,” says Taylor.There are also five Democrats seeking their party’s nod in 2018. The front runner is nonprofit executive Todd Litton, who outraised Ted Poe before the congressman announced his retirement. Sharelast_img read more
