Mamta Kulkarni clarifies her stand on the drug haul case accuses cops of framing her

Caught in a web of a drug controversy, the actress-turned-spiritual yogini Mamta Kulkarni has finally opened up about her life to a leading daily. Reportedly, Mamta Kulkarni has been practicing the life of a yogini since 1995 and has also claimed that some cops are using her name in the case to gain publicity.

Mamta Kulkarni, who was one of the most sought after actress in 90s and known for films like Karan Arjun and Aashiq Awara, has been accused of being involved in a drug racket along with her alleged husband Vicky Goswami, which was busted by the Mumbai cops, who claim it to be worth Rs. 2000 crore. Mamta Kulkarni, recently, clarified on the accusations saying that she currently has only the money she earned as an actress, which according to her, is enough for her survival for the rest of her life and that she has only Rs. 25 lakhs in her fixed deposit. She further questioned that if she really owned money worth Rs. 2000 crore, then, why her sister was living in a normal apartment in Mira Road.

Clarifying on the allegations about her connection with drug lord Vicky Goswami, Mamta Kulkarni asserted that she once knew him who had shown her a different way of life. In 1995, she decided to give up her glamorous life after she met Shri Gagangiri Maharaj, who has an ashram in Khopoli. Mamta Kulkarni also claimed that becoming a Bollywood actress was a dream of her mother, but, because she was always wooed by spirituality, she ultimately led her to the path of becoming a yogini. Revealing about her current status with Vicky Goswami, Mamta Kulkarni asserted that she is just friends with him and currently resides alone in Nairobi.

Jay Mukhi, who was supposedly one of the major witnesses in the drug haul case, has allegedly claimed that he has never met Mamta Kulkarni. Stressing on the same, Mamta Kulkarni not only agreed to the same, but further maintained that this was the proof of her innocence. Mamta Kulkarni also stated that some cops were using her name for publicity considering her popularity as a Bollywood actress.

Salim Khan slams Naseeruddin Shah for his comments on late Rajesh Khanna

Just a few days ago, controversy brewed as Naseeruddin Shah accused late actor and India's first superstar Rajesh Khanna of being a mediocre actor. Followed by an outrage by Khanna's family, now some of Bollywood's prominent personalities have come out in support of Rajesh Khanna, fondly known as Kaka.

Popular writer and father of superstar Salman Khan, Salim Khan, who doesn't mince words when it comes to sharing his thoughts on social media, took to Twitter to talk about the incident. Comparing to his son Salman Khan, who has an unprecedented fanbase in the country, Salim Khan asserted that the late Rajesh Khanna was a much bigger star with a much bigger fanbase which continues even after his demise. "Anyone calling him a mediocre actor should know that no one can reach these heights unless he has something extraordinary to offer," read one of Salim's tweets. He further added, "An actor passed my house and saw a big crowd waiting for Salman he called me up to say he has not seen anything like this before. I told him I have seen bigger crowds many times outside Rajesh Khannas house. He was the first and the last superstar of the millenium." Taking a dig at the comments passed by Naseeruddin Shah, Salim Khan also maintained, "Frustration and bitterness are difficult to cure but carrying the same for such a long time is unheard of."

Naseeruddin Shah, a few days ago, stated that the mediocrity entered the world of Bollywood in 70s and further claimed that Rajesh Khanna was a poor actor according to him. Post the comment, Naseer also faced the wrath of the Khanna family. The late superstar's daughter, actress and author Twinkle Khanna refused to accept Naseer's apology for the comment, after which former wife of Rajesh Khanna and veteran actress Dimple Kapadia too expressed her displeasure regarding the comment.

Arjun Kapoor to play a double role again in Mubaraka

Amazing are the ways of show world. While Arjun Kapoor's contemporaries Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan are yet to play their first double role, Arjun Kapoor is already on to his second double role.

After Atul Sabharwal's Aurangzeb where he played step brothers, Arjun Kapoor is already on to his second double role in Anees Bazmee's Mubaraka.

The film that will bring together real-life uncle and nephew Anil and Arjun Kapoor as an onscreen chacha- bhatija, stars Arjun in two roles.

Says a source close to the project, "Arjun is cast in a double role in Mubaraka. But he isn't playing brothers this time, like he did in Aurangzeb. One of the roles will have him play Anil Kapoor's nephew. The other will be that of a completely unrelated character."
